Are You A Slut? Take The Scientist-Approved Hand Test To Find Out!

Even the biggest slut you know (probs me?) ain’t got nothin’ on a horny Neanderthal. Our ancestors were some freaky bitches — that’s where you get it from, Frisky readers! Mystery solved. Earlier this week, a team of Canadian and British scientists unveiled a way to test just how big a tramp your great-great-great-great-great-grandparents were. Apparently, a propensity for promiscuity is related to prenatal androgens. Those hormones also govern the finger-size ratio.

After carefully examining the remains of early apes, hominins, Ardipithecus ramidus, and Australopithecus afarensis, the researchers were able to show a trend in ye ol’ hoes. The more skanky and sex-loving the early human, the lower index-to-ring finger ratio. By comparatively measuring, blah, blah, blah, science. Let’s get to the good part: how to test your own loosey-goosey legacy, after the jump! Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: “Apprentice” Contestants Accuse Donald Trump Of Inappropriate Comments

  • Two contestants on “The Apprentice” have accused host Donald Trump of making sexist and inappropriate comments in the boardroom. “So much of the boardroom discussion concerned the appearance of the female contestants — discussing the female contestants’ looks — who he found to be hot,” said Mahsa Saeidi-Azcuy, the woman whom Trump “fired” last week. “[Trump] asked the men to rate the women — he went down the line and asked the guys, ‘Who’s the most beautiful on the women’s team?’” Added contestant Gene Folkes, “I think it was most uncomfortable when he had one [female] contestant come around the board table and twirl around.” I am shocked — shocked! — that the man who owns the Miss Universe organization would be accused of this behavior.

And Now For The Best Line Uttered By A Naked Criminal!

God bless The Smoking Gun for bringing amazing tales about the laws of justice smacking down on criminals. For example!

Drive ‘Em To Drink: Guy In Breathalyzer Costume Busted For DUI On Halloween

Remember how I warned you about 22 costumes that wouldn’t get you laid, and one of them was this here Breathalyzer? Well, what I forgot to mention was you also shouldn’t get wasted in this get-up and then attempt to drive home. Unfortch, 19-year-old Nebraskan Matthew Nieveen didn’t see the hilarious irony of getting arrested for a DUI on Halloween dressed like this … or maybe he did. He was pulled over and thrown in the detox slammer with a French maid and naughty border patrol agent. Wait, that’s a punishment? Sounds like the makings of an awesome porno! Well, I guess young Mr. Nieveen should just be especially glad that unlike the costume Breathalyzer, the police one isn’t in someone’s crotch. [Best Week Ever]
