Do Or Don’t: Asking Permission Before First Kiss

Earlier this week, we found out that President-elect Barack Obama and Michelle Obama shared their first kiss over Baskin-Robbins ice cream and he actually asked permission before leaning in. This got me thinking about my past first kisses. Like Barack (yeah, we’re on a first name basis.), my current boyfriend asked permission before he kissed me. It was our third date and I thought, “Can’t he pick up the signals that I’m dying to kiss him?” Heck, I was ready to kiss him on the first date, but he was a gentleman and waited an appropriate amount of time before things got physical. What do YOU think about asking permission before a first kiss? Keep reading »

Is Your Dog Cute Enough To Be First Dog?

In his election night speech, President-elect Barack Obama told his daughters they had earned a puppy, and speculation over what type of dog the family should get began. Michelle has said they will be getting a shelter dog, but with Malia’s allergies, it needs to be hypoallergenic one.

No matter where the Obamas’ dog comes from — the pound or a breeder — it has to be photogenic, for sure. We bet your dogs are awfully attractive, so we want you to send canine photos and videos to tips@thefrisky.com, along with the reason your dog would be the perfect presidential pet. Next week, we’ll post the cutest dogs and award one the title of First Dog.

UPDATE: Barack Obama responded to the question at a press conference today…

More Proof That The Obamas Are The Cutest Couple In All Of Cuteland

A friend sent me this video, of the President-Elect and the soon-to-be First Lady, doing a little happy dance together behind the scenes at one of his rallies, not knowing a camera was capturing the moment. At the end you can see Barack mouth in his Michelle’s ear, “I love you so much.” My friend wrote: “She’s a big cheerleader of his and keeps him in line at the same time…men flourish around that behavior. Behind every good man is an extraordinary woman. How can you watch that and ever, ever settle?” To which I thought, “Damn straight.” Keep reading »

    Will.i.am: First Black Man In Hologram

    Last night, an African-American man made television history! Sure, Barack has got our future in his very capable hands, but Will.i.am transported us straight into “Star Trek” territory! That’s right, the beat box behind the Black Eyed Peas, who also made the very viral “Yes We Can” video, was teleported into the CNN studio from Grant Park in Chicago. At a such a crucial time in our history, Anderson Cooper united nerds across this great land by saying, “Let’s see if we can beam him in.” Then, right there, before our very eyes, the first man ever in hologram, FOR REAL, on national television!

    Okay, so Will.i.am got it a little mixed up and said he felt like he was in “Star Wars.” But, Cooper quickly corrected him that, much like cell phones, it was in fact The Trek that was responsible for this kind of totally awesome technology! [FYI, "Star Wars" had pre-recorded hologram messages ("Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope.") but could not beam people anywhere, though that sure would have come in handy.] Sigh, we love the Coop!

    Music: An Election Day Mixtape

    Campaign songs have caused more of a ruckus in this presidential race than teenage pregnancy and extra-marital affairs combined. It all started with a John scandal, when John McCain stole “Our Country” by John Cougar Mellencamp from John Edwards after he got axed in the primaries. Then, Mellencamp told McCain to stop using the track, because the liberal musician didn’t want his tune affiliated with the Republican candidate. After that, hippie balladeer Jackson Browne sued McCain’s campaign to protest the use of his “Running On Empty” in an attack ad against Barack Obama. So, we here at the Frisky decided to put together a voting day soundtrack that everyone can groove to. We might have some differences on our ballots, but our booties bump to the same beats. After the jump, The Frisky’s Election Day Mixtape. Keep reading »
