Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
This video has been on the YouTubes for awhile, but it just crossed Amelia’s and my path today. If this guy who calls himself Jerry Crew on YouTube is legit, he and his wife were trying for another child, but at 16 weeks, they were told the fetus was basically dead and went in to have an abortion. (In the comments section on YouTube, he says the fetus had sirenomelia, or “mermaid syndrome,” a rare deformity in which the lower half of the body is fused together and missing several internal organs.) Naturally, the anti-abortion protesters standing outside the clinic screaming at his wife as she went inside didn’t think of that. Watch as this “angry dad” confronts two protesters on the street who seem rather sure of themselves that it’s their business to butt into other people’s medical decisions. [YouTube] Keep reading »

A Texas high school has taken “school spirit” to the extreme and kicked a cheerleader off the squad after she refused to cheer for a football player who sexually assaulted her. According to Ms. magazine, player Rakheem Jamal Bolton, 19, of Silsbee High School in Hardin County, TX, and two other males were accused of sexually assaulting a female student (identified only as H.S.) in 2008 at a post-game party. H.S. claims the three young men forced her into a room, locked the door, held her down and sexually assaulted her. Other party-goers tried to get in the room and two of the three men, including Bolton, fled through the window … Keep reading »
You know we’re big fans of J.Crew, over here. But we’re not fans of the Crew’s oftentimes ridiculous prices. We still haven’t figured out why most of the shoes are upwards of $200! But instead of complaining (some more), we decided to check out Lands’ End Canvas, which has preppy yet slightly urban wardrobe staples similar to J.Crew. Lands’ End Canvas is affordable enough so that you don’t need a trust fund to get more than one piece. Check out some of our favorites after the jump. Keep reading »
Stuck as to where you stand in the cake versus pie debate? Now you don’t have to choose! A Philadelphia bakery has created the pumpple cake — an apple pie and a pumpkin pie baked inside a vanilla and chocolate cake “fused together and surrounded by buttercream frosting.” The whole concoction clocks in at 15 lbs. and 1,800 calories, but the owners of the Flying Monkey bakery say that it ideally feeds four people. Just four?! More importantly, how does it taste? Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb got to taste the dessert on “The Today Show” this morning and Kathie Lee described it as “obscene — that is delicious.” Of course, she was probably drunk.
