Sum Poosie is a “vagina-themed” energy drink that tastes like cherry and was created by a guy who turned down a job offer from Red Bull in 1996. “Basically, it’s an energy drink, but it’s like the ‘Girls Gone Wild’ of energy drinks,” the drink’s distributor Levar Turner, who is under the impression that is a selling point, told blogger Amanda Hess at TBD.com. “There are a million and one energy drinks.

Amanda Hess has kicked off her annual homage to insane and insanely offensive Halloween costumes for ladies, and this year’s first installment is a real doozy. “Which costume will reign as the year’s most utterly disagreeable foray into hypersexualized make-believe?” Hess wonders.

We recommend this lady blogger as one to keep on reading. [Amanda Hess] Keep reading »
