Knowd: Simply Irresistible
McDonald’s, purveyors of fine french fries, is jealous of McDragan’s shake. The Swedish strip club was threatened with a lawsuit from the big Mac when they put a double arch outside of their establishment. The two humps were actually meant to look like titties. (Pervs are so clever!) Luckily, over the summer, they managed to settle their differences—hey, both the burger chain and the strip club like fresh meat. Cocky proprietor Dragan Bratic told a local newspaper, “My strip clubs are going to be as common as McDonald’s!” He has since expanded his business to Skogsby, and has plans to open another franchise in Vancouver, just in time for the 2010 Olympic games. Maybe his future employees can help convince the Olympic Committee to make pole dancing an event? But his isn’t the only themed topless establishment. Here are seven more …
There were plenty of celebrities (Kathy Griffin was all up on it) and gorgeous Amazonian girls backstage at Isaac’s show, but this was the only sandwich anyone touched. For those not invited to the event itself, Mizrahi live-streamed the show on his site. What a sweetie. [New York, 09/18/09] Keep reading »
Sadly, Jessica Simpson‘s dog, Daisy, is still missing after being snatched by a coyote. On Wednesday night, Jessica twoted, “Still holding out hope despite the a**holes that say is it a dumb thing to do. Daisy is my baby … why would I stop searching? I’m a mom.” Martha Stewart added some insult to injury in the situation saying, “It’s pretty sad. She should have watched it more closely, though. She should have been more careful.” Ouch. That’s helpful, Martha. But, evidently, dogs are snatched by coyotes pretty often in Los Angeles. Ozzy Osbourne and Halle Berry both experienced this first-hand. Keep reading »
How we missed this cuteness in last weekend’s New York Times, we have no idea. Rowland Fellows, 84, and Beth Ashley, 83, met when they were 13 and 12 years old, respectively, and their families were both vacationing in Five Islands, ME. Back then, they were friends, but Ashley had a major crush on Fellows. “I thought he was very, very cute,” she said. “I kept wishing he would kiss me and become my boyfriend. It was a little girl crush, but it was very serious on my part.” They saw each other every summer for four years, but crush never developed into anything. “I guess I just wasn’t a very romantic young man,” Mr. Fellows told the Times. “But Beth was sort of a tomboy, and I looked at her as more of a buddy.” Poor Ashley had been relegated to the virtually inescapable friend zone.

Getting called a “jackass” by Obama must smart. But Kanye West, you were a real douchebag. Your punishment for interrupting sweet lil’ Taylor Swift isn’t up ’til Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers have their way with you on “Weekend Update!”
And next time, Kanye, don’t be chugging Hennessy on the red carpet. Really. Keep reading »
Now that Jay-Z‘s new album, The Blueprint 3, has reached #1 on the Billboard chart, a whole huge deal is being made about how Jay has surpassed Elvis‘ long held record for the most #1 albums. Guess that was definitely worth coming out of retirement for. But, uh, how does Jay-Z stack up to Elvis in other regards?

Rates of syphilis in Forsyth, NC have tripled in one year, so health officials there have come up with a novel idea to entice people to get tested. Folks who undergo testing are awarded with a $10 gift card to either Walmart or McDonald’s. Now, I know people need some kind of incentive to get tested, but can’t we think of a better idea than trading syphilis for diabetes, heart disease, and high cholesterol? The Walmart card could be beneficial, but I wonder how the corporation feels about being used to lure potential syphilis sufferers. At least the gift card provides a silver lining if a person tests positive. [F-Listed] Keep reading »
Most of us who’ve lived in a college dormitory before have had that sexual assault prevention lecture from campus security that’s basically, like, “Women! Cross your legs!” I guess society thinks it’s easier to just make women protect themselves, rather than changing men’s behavior, hence, advice like “cover your drinks so you don’t get roofied” and “don’t walk walk home alone at night.”
You could just stay in your dorm room all year, girls.
Yeah, “rape prevention” advice that makes women have to be on the ball with our behavior all the time is damn annoying. So I’m thrilled a blogger at No, Not You, who did a college RA training last month, wrote up 11 handy-dandy sexual assault prevention tips FOR MEN. Keep reading »
Because we’re in a transitional period, weather-wise, today is one of those days when you can wear sandals or boots and not look like a fool. Today we have tights and tank tops, boots and open-toe shoes, and long-sleeves and no sleeves. What have you brought out of your closet lately?
