This piece was cross-posted with permission from FatNutritionist.com.

Happy Holidays From Sister Jude & The Rest Of Briarcliff Manor

This is the apparently the holiday card from FX, the network that airs "American Horror Story." Uh, thanks? I'm glad someone at least had to good sense to keep Bloody Face out of the same photo as Baby Jesus ... or did they? Wahahahahaha! [via HuffPostTV.Tumblr.com]…

4 Ways The Holidays Get Weird During Your Post-Grad Transition Years

The older you grow, the more the holiday season changes. It grows with you, in a way, and the frame of mind  with which you approach the Thanksgiving/Christmas/Hanukkah celebrations is a huge factor in whether or not you enjoy the season. At my ripe old age of 24, this will be the 24th time I…

The Soapbox: Holiday Gift Giving Is A Total Scam

First thing's first: I'm a Jew. I haven't celebrated Christmas since I was a little kid and we still believed in Santa Claus. (I was eight when I discovered he wasn't real, and ceremoniously told my younger brother and sister at the dinner table. My mom got so mad she squeezed ketchup all over my…

Forget about the 12 days of Christmas — for chocoholics, Decembers is all about the 25 days of CHOCOLATE.

This festive Advent calendar from…

Baby, It’s Consensual Outside

"Baby, It's Cold Outside" is the most squirmy of Christmas songs. It's supposed to be a cute duet between a woman and a man who wants her to stay longer, clearly written during a time period when a woman's "reputation" for not having casual sex truly mattered. As such, the lyrics are pretty date rapey,…

Men Are Merry-Less in Sexist Christmas Ad

Add one more advertisement to the slew of commercials stereotyping men and women. Asda, a British supermarket, debuted a new ad for the Christmas holidays, featuring a mother running herself ragged, creating the perfect Christmas for her family. Because, you know, that's what all women do.

10 Tips For Having Sex After Huge Holiday Meals

Dan Savage suggests fucking before dinner. And yeah, that's probably the best policy when it comes to huge holiday meals like Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. But if you can't make that happen for whatever reason (and there are plenty of reasons, like FAMILY STRESS), you might find yourself in an emotional place where you…

A Cookie Cake That Accurately Describes November’s Mood

Is it already Christmas where you live? It seems December 25 comes earlier and earlier each year. As a Jew, I kind of love it, because hello, cookies, pine tree smell and holiday carols. But as a critic of capitalism, it's kind of the worst. Apparently this cake was made by a disgruntled bakery employee…

The World’s Littlest Toilet Lover Gets A New Bowl For Christmas

Little Dustin Kruses knows a good toilet when he sees one on a Kohler Design Center Tour (sponsored by Kohler). His obsession started with port-a-potties and grew into a full-fledged "love of toilets." All the 4-year-old wanted from Santa this Christmas was a Kohler half-life duel flush. Because not only is it "great" but it…

What Was The Best Holiday Gift You Received?

It's fun to receive a gift you ask for, but, in my opinion, it's more fun to receive a gift you didn't ask for, and be astounded by how well chosen it was. My friend Nick gifted me  the soundtrack to the 1979 film "The Main Event" on vinyl. For those of you who missed…
