More Valuable Life Lessons From Amy Sedaris: How To Make Edible Kitty Litter And Cat Turds

Yum!
Amy-Sedaris-Making-Edible-Cat-Turd
Just Like Mining For A Ruby!

Basically, “Strangers With Candy” is my religion and Simple Times: Crafts For Poor People is my Bible. I suppose this makes Amy Sedaris my own personal Jesus? Maybe not that exactly, but something close. On a recent episode of Jimmy Fallon, Amy gifted us all with an instructional on how to make edible kitty litter and cat turds. You never know when that sort of thing will come in handy. So, you’ll probably want to stay fully stocked at all times with crushed walnuts, cocoa powder, and 100 Grand bars for the scat. Oh, and don’t forget your fake teeth. I have no idea why. But Amy ate the litter and poop with fake teeth and I have faith in her. There’s a gratuitous Jerri Blank GIF after the jump. Just cuz.

Come On, Get Crafty

Congratulations, you made it through another holiday season. But you’re so broke you’ll be stuck at home eating ramen noodles until April! Never fear, actress and crafting extraordinaire Amy Sedaris won’t let those hands get idle. Simple Times: Crafts For Poor People, a belly-achingly hilarious tome of super-easy crafts and recipes, is a follow-up to her amazing book, I Like You: Hospitality Under The Influence. In both books, the uber-creative Sedaris proves you need panache — not cash! — to entertain and be entertaining. In Simple Times, Sedaris will teach you how to make homemade sausage, cilantro treats for a pet rabbit, and seashell toilet seat covers. When you finally dig yourself out of credit card debt, you’ll be a total crafting diva. Being broke never looked more fun.

Who’s America’s Sexiest Comedienne?

Obviously, we are big Tina Fey, Amy Sedaris, and Aisha Tyler enthusiasts. So we immediately clicked on this Huffington Post poll about 15 of the leading ladies of funny. But—wait—it asks readers to rate the women on their looks? Even HuffPo acknowledges that it’s a “poll of ridiculous proportions.” Sure, these women are beautiful. But it’s their wit, slapstick antics, and all-around hilariousness that stole our hearts. So while we wished they asked, “Who’s the funniest comedienne?” we decided to take a look at the current rankings. What we found may surprise you. Keep reading »

Amy Sedaris Demonstrates How To Clean Your (Felt) Vagina

Amy Sedaris was hilarious on a recent episode of “Chelsea Lately” — seriously, I would love to have a slumber party with those two. The best part is when she says she used to go to acting auditions and perform monologues from the female body tomb “Our Bodies Ourselves”. Classic. Keep reading »

    Happy 15th Birthday Bust Magazine!

    Last night, The Frisky’s Emily and I celebrated 15 years of Bust magazine in a circus tent packed with crafty, sassy, stylish babes and their gay boyfriends. Performances by booty beat internet icon Leslie Hall (who autographed the concert t-shirt her mom sold me), burlesque style strippers like Peekaboo Pointe, Amy Sedaris, DJ JD Samson from Le Tigre, and drag king lounge act lover Murray Hill are how these girls like to get down! The ladies of Bust are a good time — and not just because they gave away 500 vibrators to the crowd. Since 1993, they’ve also given women’s mags an irresistible edge. In a market flooded with stupid self-help tips and fashion for stick figures, they showcase women who are hip, hot, and, above all, their outrageous selves. The mag is not afraid to support the freaks and geeks that are flying in the face of traditional pre-packaged celebs. They put revolutionary people in print, without discriminating based on looks and marketing machines. They go for vigilantes with vaginas who are shaping our generation of bad ass bitches. Like their favorite women, Bust does what it wants and it really has an eye — they’ve featured cover girls like Amy Poehler, Beth Ditto, Bjork and Charlotte Gainsbourg. So, congratulations Bust! You keep the magazine rack well-rounded. Keep reading »

    The Daily Hotness: Women In Comedy

    Who says women aren’t funny, indeed. Even the cover for the current issue of Vanity Fair (typically kind of a snoozefest, in our opinion) is funny, as Saturday Night Live‘s Amy Poehler gently cups Tina Fey’s breast. The inside photos feature even more hysterical ladies, like our fantasy best girlfriend, Amy Sedaris, Sarah Silverman, Chelsea Handler, and Jenna Fischer, all proving that, yes, women are effing hilarious and that there’s nothing sexier than a person who can make you laugh until you pee your pants. Check out some knee-slappin’ moments from behind the scenes of the momentous VF shoot, after the jump…

    Dolly Puts The Back In Backwoods Barbie

    While accepting an award in New York City last year, Dolly Parton said she had been known for two things throughout her career. “I’m talking about my music and my lyrics,” she joked. Sadly, it’s the two things on our dirty minds that are holding her back, no pun intended. Ms. Parton, 62, who has fittingly nicknamed her monumental boobs “shock” and “awe”, has postponed her tour due to back problems caused by carrying that weight a long time. The sequin-loving singer/songwriter will be stuck in bed for 6-8 weeks, but is expected to make a full recovery and begin touring in support of her soon-to-be-released record Backwoods Barbie in April. Yeehaw! Until then, we’ll just be watching the music video for her new single, “Better Get To Livin’” featuring Amy Sedaris (of Strangers With Candy fame). Get well soon, Dolly! [The Sun U.K.]
