It’s Time To Cry: Anonymous Donors Are Paying For Strangers’ Layaways

Well, isn't this sweet: some wonderful people are anonymously offering to pay for strangers' layaway items at random Kmarts across the country. The Kmart layaway program, which helps struggling families pay for items over a length of time rather than all at once, has seen record numbers of anonymous donations come in from strangers wanting to give holiday…

Mind Of Man: The Gift That Will Get You Laid

The current historic economic nosedive has two unintended consequences. One of them is that hobos just aren't really cute anymore. Maybe they never were. All these years I thought they were adorable dirty clowns, carrying little bundles tied to the ends of sticks. I never realized those bundles were full of cans of beans and…

Sarah Palin Pooh-Poohs The Obama Christmas Card

Sarah Palin has a beef with the presidential Christmas card: a simple portrait of the Obamas' dog Bo by the fireplace with the line "From our family to yours, may your holidays shine with the light of the season."  The puppy-pooh-poohing politico told Fox News it is "odd" that the Obamas' card depicts Bo instead of…

Heidi Klum Goes Pantsless As Santa Claus

Courtney Stodden isn't the only one getting into the Christmas spirit! Heidi Klum tweeted this photo of herself wearing a Santa costume -- but where are her pants? It's cold in the North Pole. Oh, and here are some other celeb Santas -- some dressed more appropriately for the weather than others.

3 Modernized Christmas Carols To Celebrate Awkward Family Time

Christmas carols are nice, but they're a little out of touch with the realities of modern life, don't you think? I mean, red-nosed reindeer, frosty snowmen, jingling bells, and little drummer boys? Whatever. I think it's time for an update. Ready to sing about real holiday topics like awkward political discussions, chaste sleeping arrangements, and…

The holidays suck extra hard when you're trying to cope with the loss of a family member, even if you're not a Grinch by nature.

Happy first night of Hanukkah, fellow members of Tribe! On that note, I'd like to take a few minutes to talk about Christmas. Christmas dinner specifically.

The Drunkest Night Before Christmas

Funny or Die's drunk retelling of "The Night Before Christmas" is like no other Christmas tale you've heard. Drunk Allan McLeod recites the poem while Ryan Gosling, Jim Carrey and Eva Mendes attempt to act it out. It looks like someone dipped into the Christmas brandy early. [Funny or Die]…

Cameltoe Is The New Mistletoe

I mean really, it's antediluvian, not to mention totally cliche, to steal a kiss under the mistletoe. That was so last century. Way more romantic (and modern) than mistletoe is cameltoe. A new mobile app, Under the Cameltoe, allows you to log on, pick from a variety of genitals in too-tight garments, hold that "toe"…

Courtney Stodden Gets Into The Christmas Spirit By Straddling Santa

Hey wait! That's not Santa -- that's creepy Doug Hutchison, Courtney's much-much-older husband. Hard to tell though, as I'm pretty sure Doug is closer to Santa's age than he is to Courtney's. Anyway, I just love Courtney's yuletide spirit. It's enough to get Scrooge in the mood for egg nog, wrapping presents, and kissing under…

Now Is The Cat Santa Suit Of Our Discontent

There may be nothing cats hate more than wearing clothes. That's because cats, unlike dogs, absolutely feel humiliation and embarrassment in a real way. You can see it on their little cat faces, and read it in the way that they stalk around with utter disdain whenever they see the offending humans that made them…

15 Sexy Celebrity Christmas Looks

A really amusing part of the holiday season is seeing what kinds of sexy Christmas outfits celebs come up with. I don't know when it became a unspoken rule that female celebs needed to come up with a racy look for every Hallmark holiday, but somehow it did. Mariah Carey is a trailblazer on the…

9 Totally Respectable Holiday “Regifts”

Some of us spend weeks planning our holiday gift shopping. Some of us make extensive lists and go on multiple shopping outings. And others of us wait until Christmas day to ransack our homes looking for something, anything, we can do without. Then we wrap it in emergency tissue paper we keep under the sink.

Holiday Gift Guide: 11 Presents That Won’t Get You Laid

If your lady wants to run to the bedroom immediately after unwrapping your present (meaning your holiday gift, not the present in your pants), she probably liked it.

Girl Talk: I’m A Christmas Music Junkie

Come the holiday season, I'm all abuzz with warm, fuzzy feelings. The world is all aglitter with Christmas lights, hot cocoa and cider sit warm in my belly, dogs wear absurd sweaters, and I can’t stop smiling. I practically piss eggnog. From the day after Thanksgiving through Boxing Day, I delve into a playlist of…
