Anti-Abortion Activists Bring Ultrasounds To Congress

Anti-abortion activists will bring their “Voices from the Womb” project to Capital Hill on October 13 when they perform ultrasounds on expectant mothers to “introduce” congressional employees to fetuses at 12 weeks and 18 weeks. Their hope is that politicians will “hear the beating heart” and “clearly see their fingers and toes,” which will make all “pro-choice politics and arguments melt away,” according to the group’s leader, Brandi Swindell. Congress and the public are all invited to see the public ultrasounds, after which the project will begin touring at schools, churches and public hearings around the country. Keep reading »

Christina Ricci Says “Pan Am” Isn’t A “Mad Men” Knockoff

“It’s a great comparison to get; ‘Mad Men‘ is a great show and I’m a huge fan. But that does focus more on a man’s experience of that time period and this is much more about these women. These were really women who were taking control of their lives and living in a very feminist kind of way. They weren’t the average women.”

Christina Ricci in Manhattan magazine about her new show, “Pan Am” and the comparisons it is getting to the critics’ favorite, “Mad Men.” “Pan Am” is just one of two ’60s retro-inspired TV shows debuting this season: the other is “The Playboy Club.” I, for one, am a little skeptical about the influx of “Mad Men” knockoff shows, mostly because “Mad Men” is brilliantly incisive while “The Playboy Club” really looks like it’s glossing over some sexist awfulness and portraying it as really kitschy and fun. But “Pan Am” has always looked like the superior of the two programs and the adventures of four female flight attendants sounds fascinating. And who doesn’t love the idea of Christina Ricci on TV?

The Turducken of Cookies: The ChocoOreoChip Cookie

It’s my birthday this week (you can send all b-day wishes care of The Frisky offices, thanks!) and my mom made me cookies. These are her special chocolate chip Oreo cookies, which are homemade chocolate chip cookies with Oreo cookies baked inside. Blam! I just blew your mind, didn’t I? This is to cookies what the turducken is to novelty Thanksgiving meats. I believe she invented this cookie, but if she didn’t, I don’t want to know. What I do want know is have you ever created a totally off-the-wall baking or cooking innovation? Keep reading »

Get ready for a television orgy. This week, the major networks begin rolling out their brand spanking new television fare. Some of these new shows will shine and become the thing you’ll discuss at the water cooler in the morning, while some will quietly disappear into the annals of television history without much fanfare. After the jump, a sneak peek at “The Playboy Club” and “2 Broke Girls,” two shows premiering tonight that we think will be in the former category. Plus, some new returning shows that you’ll want to make sure to check out.

Would You Use A Fart Neutralizing Pad?

OK, so we’ve all had the burning sensation in our stomachs and bowels when you know you’ve got to let a big fart go, and it’s definitely going to be smelly. But instead of doing a butt-clenched duck walk to the nearest restroom–trying to will the fart back to the safe territory of your upper stomach (I can’t be the only one who tries to do this), or actually busting out a lighter to burn off the methane after you’ve let one rip –maybe try Subtle Butt: Disposable Gas Neutralizers. These ingenious carbon pads filter odors from flatulence, but the side of the pad that touches the skin is treated with an antimicrobial. These Subtle Butt fart filters are a good idea, but only if you know ahead of time that you’re going to consume gassy foods. I can’t see anyone sticking one of these into their pants or underwear on a daily basis just in case. Also, what about a fart that’s as loud as it is smelly? I guess a strategic cough could hide the sound. But all this still begs the question, would you use a fart neutralizing pad? [Solutions That Stick] Keep reading »
