Woman Sends 34 Co-Workers To The Hospital By Spraying Stank Perfume

Okay, this makes no sense, but here goes. At a call bank center in Texas, 34 people were hospitalized after a woman gave herself a spritz of perfume. At first, a few people started complaining about feeling dizzy and short of breath. Pretty soon, a ton of people were feeling sick. Fire officials were called to the scene because folks assumed that it must have been carbon monoxide or toxic fumes in the air. Nope—it was nasty eau de toilet. In addition to the 34 people taken to the hospital, another 110 were treated on the scene. Peeps still don’t know what kind of perfume it was, but I hope they find out soon so I can make sure never to buy it. Ever. [Yahoo News] Keep reading »

Sexual Spam Emails, Illustrated

spam email g1 jpg
Approximately 349 emails find their way into our spam folder on a daily basis, and no matter how we try to get rid of missives like, “No problem with pounding her,” new ones keep coming. Australian art director and graphic designer Elliot Burford illustrates the titles of emails he finds in his junk mail folder with simply adorable line drawings that misconstrue the subject lines’ original meaning in an almost Amelia Bedelia-like manner.

Old, White Men Are Getting Fired First. Feels Good To Be A Woman?

It used to be that the newest and youngest workers were the first to go when times got tough. But that’s not how it’s been in this recession. A lot of old white dudes are being shown the door, and joblessness rates for peeps age 55 and older are the highest they’ve been since the Great Depression. Conversely, Black women are totes fine, with joblessness rates almost eight percent lower than in 1983. Keep reading »

Financial Opposites Attract

Do you ever feel like you’re constantly arguing with your boyfriend about going to an expensive restaurant or buying a cheapo shirt? It might be a sign that you’re meant for each other. A study from the Wharton School of Finance and Northwest University, “Fatal (Fiscal) Attraction,” has found that financial opposites really do attract. Even though most people say they would be happy to marry someone with the same spending habits, the survey found that most people date folks who do the opposite as themselves. So, spenders dig savers and savers dig spenders. Is this true for you? [Yahoo News] Keep reading »

TV Shows That Are Complete Rip Offs

DJ AM, who you may remember as the other survivor in a plane crash along with Travis Barker, has a new show set to debut on MTV. The plane crash wasn’t the first time DJ AM, aka Adam Goldstein, defied death. Eleven years ago, he was a crack addict who attempted suicide, but fortunately the gun got jammed. Since he’s been so lucky to escape death twice, he’s looking to help other people with addictions. His show, “Gone Too Far,” will help the loved ones of addicts rescue their friends and family from the reaches of death. This show sounds familiar. Wait a second… Isn’t that the same plot as A&E’s “Intervention”? Indeed, it is! While I’m not shocked that MTV is completely copying another network’s successful show, it’s so not. In fact, recycled premises happen all of the time. More after the jump. [LA Times Blog]

The “Househusbands Of Hollywood” Are True Home Boys

Some people say they’re sick of all the shows about housewives, trophy wives, and other kept women. Well, now they can see how the other side — the househusband — lives. Fox Reality’s “Househusbands of Hollywood” focuses on men who run their households while their bread-winning Hollywood wives bring home the bacon. This is how Fox defines a househusband: “King of the castle…ruler of the roost…until his wife comes home from work.” Two of the better known husbands are Darryl M. Bell, who played Ron Johnson on “A Different World” and is married to Tempestt Bledsoe (Vanessa Huxtable of “The Cosby Show“), and former L.A. Dodgers baseball player Billy Ashley, whose wife is a successful Hollywood makeup artist. Charlie Mattera, another hubby featured, co-created the series with his wife, a prominent psychologist. The others are Marine sniper Grant Reynolds, married to Fox 11 morning news show host Jillian Reynolds, and Danny Barclay, an aspiring actor hitched to a high-powered L.A. lawyer. “Househusbands of Hollywood” premieres Aug. 15.

Sherri Shepherd Loses Her Bikini Wax Virginity

Brave, brave Sheri Shepherd shows us how hilarious a bikini wax can truly be. Not only do you feel her pain, but you feel so wrong for laughing at it. First of all, I’m surprised she was not told in advance, or even worse that she didn’t ask what kind of wax she was getting. It only adds to the tragic situation. I’d say it’s a nice break from the sporadic morning cat fights on “The View.” Cringe, laugh, cry, and enjoy. Keep reading »
