Jasmine Cat On A Roomba
Now Where's Her Magic Lamp?

The title says it all, doesn’t it? Max-Arthur, our favorite Roomba-riding cat, is back to celebrate the season by parading around in “Aladdin” garb. I’m going to assume that the YouTube copyright police are the reason “A Whole New World” isn’t playing in the background (I mean, why else!?), so go ahead and mute the video and blast the tune on your own — I know it’s in your iTunes library!

Terrible Human Asks Dear Prudence If They Have To Give Candy To Poor Children Trick-Or-Treating In Their Rich Neighborhood

Terrible Human Asks Dear Prudie If She Has To Give Candy To Poor Children Trick-Or-Treating In Her Rich Neighborhood

I don’t always agree with Slate’s Dear Prudie advice columnist, but she nailed her response to a person who wrote in to complain about children from lower-income neighborhoods coming to her rich neighborhood to trick-or-treat on Halloween. First, here’s “Halloween For The 99 Percent”:

I have noticed that on Halloween, what seems like 75 percent of the trick-or-treaters are clearly not from this neighborhood. Kids arrive in overflowing cars from less fortunate areas. I feel this is inappropriate.

Sorry to interrupt, but y’all know what “clearly not from this neighborhood” usually means, right? Varying shades of brown. Anyway, go on: Keep reading »

IKEA’s New Halloween Ad Turns Store Into “The Shining,” Is Scarier Than Assembling Furniture From Pictures

IKEA's New Halloween Ad Turns Store Into "The Shining," Is Scarier Than Assembling Furniture From Pictures
"Come Play With Us, Danny..."

It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve seen “The Shining,” because it manages to scares the bejesus out of me every single time. I watch it every Halloween and force whoever’s with me to join, so I don’t have to be alone when the two little ghost girls show up and ask Danny to play with them. I still half-expect to find “REDRUM” written in lipstick on my bathroom mirror one of these days.

To pay homage to the classic horror flick, IKEA Singapore has used their store as the backdrop for their very own “Shining”-themed ad, just in time for Halloween. The ad is a part of the store’s “Spot & Win” contest, which allows fans to win IKEA gift cards from finding items in their ads, but I’m too busy trying to get over my new fear of stepping foot into any IKEA. No, I would not like to take home an affordable end table and bathroom vanity if they come complete with assembly instructions and the ghosts of several IKEA shoppers (unless those ghosts will put together my furniture, obviously). The ad is great: clever, cute and perfect for the season, but I was taught to always say no to ghost people. ESPECIALLY if they look like my mom and dad.
