Hardy Har Har: Barack Obama’s Best Jokes From The White House Correspondents’ Dinner

On Saturday, Barack Obama hosted the White House Correspondents Association Dinner. The annual gathering of politicos, journalists, and celebrities has evolved into a famous person prom. What do Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore have to do with corresponding with the White House? We don’t know. The event has become a presidential comedy show, and last night our Jokester-in-Chief spared no one—from his kids to pirates. [USA Today] — After the jump, his best zingers. Keep reading »

Why Parents Shouldn’t Facebook

For many of us, the rise in popularity of social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter means we’re rubbing elbows with family members more often than for Sunday night dinner. Maybe it’s not so strange when it’s a cousin or sister whose lives we’re getting a unique, new peek into, but when our moms and dads start signing up, things have the potential to get awkward. Take, for example, the story of a 19-year-old girl who wrote to Slate’s resident advice columnist, Prudence, after she discovered that her 50-year-old mom had reconnected with an old boyfriend via Facebook.

You Never Knew You Needed Foot Makeup, Did You?

Here’s some foot for thought: makeup for your feet.

Allyson Carey, a makeup artist for “The Bold And The Beautiful,” has created a line of foot concealers to cover scabs, scars, and corns. T!ntalize ranges in colors from Vanilla Mousse to Chile Chocolate and is sweat and smudge-proof. Even if your tootsies are as moist as your armpits during Bikram yoga, this concealer shouldn’t ruin your socks.

NYMag.com smeared a few of the $15 concealers on the feet of their staff and took pics of T!ntalize’s cake-y results. We think we’ll stick with pedicures, thanks. [T!ntalize, NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Men’s Magazines Prefer Black Models With Lighter Skin

Last week, Tyra Banks said she’s trying to expand the idea of what the fashion industry considers beautiful. According to her, black models with lighter skin are deemed more commercial, whereas darker-skinnned black models are considered more high fashion. We’ve noticed this phenomenon holds true when a woman’s “hotness” is being judged, too. Keep reading »

When Women Bully, We Hurt Each Other

A survey by the Workplace Bullying Institute found that most bullies are men — but 40 percent are women. While male bullies attack men and women, female bullies tend to go after their own kind, targeting other women more than 70 percent of the time.

My guess is that some women who want to feel powerful feel the need to dominate others, and lording over other women can be easier than commanding men. With the economy the way it is, people are trying to get ahead, and some are taking not-so-nice measures to get there. In case you’re not sure whether someone is bullying you, tactics can include being glared at in a hostile manner, being given the silent treatment, and having others fail to deny false rumors about you. Sounds like pretty catty behavior, doesn’t it? Keep reading »

Where Have All The Sluts Gone?

Attention career women! Have you lost something? Your sex drive, perhaps? Esquire scribe Stephen Marche thinks you have and declared this a “disaster for men.” According to Marche, while feminism emancipated women sexually, the movement has resulted in making women so focused on career pursuits that they no longer have time for or interest in fornicating. The proof? “30 Rock” and “The City” are cited as concrete evidence of this epidemic. Keep reading »

Women Listen Best When Gossiping and Eavesdropping

While you’re more likely to hear women complain about their boyfriends and husbands never listening to them than the other way around, a recent poll discovered that men actually listen more carefully to others than women do. “The poll of 2,000 people found that more than one in five men reckon they always listen carefully to every word, and while less than one in five of women said the same.” Among the situations where women tend to tune out: listening to work colleagues (the average woman listens intently just 64% of the time), listening to their boss (women pick up just 2/3 of their boss’ communication), and listening to their partners (they catch 70% of those conversations). If women aren’t listening to their colleagues, bosses, or partners, what are they paying attention to? The poll says women give the most focus to gossip and eavesdropping! Don’t worry, though — “when it comes to talking to their best friend, women give their full attention to more than three quarters of what is spoken.” I’m guessing the 25% of the time women are tuning their best friends out is when the following is being discussed: their kids, how the wedding planning is going, or how, like, totally great their relationship is. Snooze-ville! [via Telegraph U.K.]
