The other day, The Frisky’s resident hip-hop head responded to an email saying she was glad she wouldn’t have to “pour out some bubbly” to a feature that might have gone the way of the dinosaurs. This was obviously a reference to the ’90s hip-hop classic “Gangsta Lean,” except this writer prefers champagne to 40 ounces of malt liquor. But absolutely no one seemed to get the joke. That’s why Understand Rap: Explanations of Confusing Rap Lyrics You and Your Grandma Can Understand should be a must-read for anyone who is interested in pop culture or who simply wants to understand what the hell Jay-Z is rapping about. Writer William Buckholz uses his dry wit to explain the most popular rap lyrics, so you’re never confused again.

I have a really hard time walking past a Gap store without going in. But I have an even more difficult time paying the ridiculous prices of some Gap basics. Fortunately, this weekend I didn’t have the latter problem because the Gap is having a mega end-of-season sale. Not only were many of the winter and fall items on sale, but the Gap was also offering a 40 percent discount on top of the sale price in stores. I didn’t go crazy in there because sizes in the store were quite limited. There is, however, a large selection of sizes, colors, and styles on sale online. Check out some of my favorites.

This feisty little number from Thursday Friday offers women the chance to carry the tres coveted (and expensive!) Hermès Birkin bag at a tiny, tiny fraction of the price. Says Olena Sholomytska, one half of the design duo behind the line, “We ended up with a surreal design that references luxury but is ultimately an anti-status status symbol.” The canvas tote, screen-printed with the Birkin bag likeness, retails for around $35, and can carry anything from groceries to books — or conceal your real Birkin from purse snatchers.

Gather round, girls, let me tell you a story. Before the late-’70s, when Aunt Flo came to visit, women would have to wear contraptions called sanitary belts. They were diaper-like and came all the way up to an elastic waistband. Oh, the horror! Needless to say, when adhesive-back pads and tampons came around, no one was bummed to throw their crazy-ass period belt in the trash. But now, over 30 years later, someone is trying to resurrect the old time-y sanitary contraptions, and in white no less. Seller Elsayx has posted them for the buy-it-now price of $18.90. And they also come in men’s styles too — for that menstruating man in your life? Oy. [Trend De La Crème]
