Presidential Candidates’ Spouses Participate In Cookie Bake-Off

Every year, Family Circle magazine has a cookie-off among the potential first spouses’ recipes, and the vote often goes the same way as general election. In 2004, Teresa Heinz Kerry’s pumpkin spice cookies lost to Laura Bush’s oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies; in 2000, Laura’s Texas Governor’s Mansion Cowboy cookies beat Tipper Gore’s ginger snaps; and Hilary Clinton’s chocolate cookies beat Barbara Bush and Elizabeth Dole in the 1992 and 1996 elections. This year, Bill Clinton offers the Clinton family cook’s recipe for oatmeal cookies, Cindy McCain shares her (hopefully not plagiarized) recipe for oatmeal-butterscotch cookies, and Michelle Obama divulges the recipe for her children’s godmother Mama Kaye’s shortbread cookies. If Bill wins, does that put Hillary back in the running? [AFP]

UPDATE: It appears Bill Clinton’s recipe was stolen from Betty Crocker. Is nothing sacred? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Handcuffs In The Bedroom: A Lesson

The Swedish police received a call yesterday from a couple who had chosen to handcuff themselves but couldn’t remove them after they had had their fun. When the police arrived, a third person was in the bedroom with the couple, trying to free them to no avail. An officer then wielded a bolt-cutter and was able to remove the cuffs. May we suggest using a pair of kids handcuffs if you can’t handle the real thing? [UPI] Keep reading »

American Apparel Starts Selling Vibrators Alongside Overpriced T-Shirts

American Apparel, the t-shirt and clothing company well-known for its, um, amorous owner Dov Charney and its controversial advertisements (like the one at left), is getting into the pleasure business — that is, they’re officially selling the Hitachi Magic Wand (a back massager turned, uh, other massager), online and at stores nationwide. Will the Rabbit be available at The Gap next?! [AmericanApparel.net] Keep reading »

Poor Strawberry Shortcake! Make The Cartoon Makovers Stop!

Why do things have to change? With the news that Strawberry Shortcake went and got a makeover, we were upset. How could you take a girl who looked like a ragamuffin and turn her into a tween queen? Seriously, Strawberry looks like the most popular Mean Girl in her class. And now there’s word that the Care Bears are supposedly getting a new look too, and they’ll soon be less plump with longer eyelashes (because even bears look better when they’re thin and have eyelash extensions). Mickey Mouse is next. Disney better not reduce his ear size. Flaws are what make the man…er, mouse. [NY Times] Keep reading »

Pro-Life Pharmacies Will Not Fill Your Birth Control Prescription

DMC Pharmacy in Chantilly, Virginia, will sell everything from cold meds to contact solution when it opens this summer, but if you want condoms, birth control pills, or any other form of contraception, you’d better head in the other direction. The “pro-life pharmacy” sticks to a strict policy of not offering its patrons contraception or anything else that “interferes” with the procreation process. Virginia doesn’t have laws which require pharmacists to dispense prescriptions written by a physician, but luckily, there are at least five other pharmacies (pro-choice ones, we guess!) within spitting distance.

The Daily Hotness: Daniel Craig, Crying

Sam Taylor-Wood is a famous artist/photographer who did a series of photographs of Hollywood actors weeping. This is one of them and we think tears are becoming on 007′s cheeks. To see more, of actors like Benicio Del Toro, Jude Law, and Ryan Gosling, click here. But while you’re here, we’d like to hear your opinion — what do you think of dudes crying? I was watching Meet The Press this weekend, and when Tom Brokaw got all choked up over his pal Tim Russert, I got all weepy too. Keep reading »
