Your Daily Reminder That Men Are Capable Of Being Truly Terrible

I am in the midst of an apartment search right now. It is annoying, frustrating, and anxiety-producing, but it is just Something That Must Happen. Somewhat more exasperating than just looking for an apartment is the fact that I am also seeking a roommate situation, which has led me to where else but that great…

At this point in the “Game of Thrones” TV series (season three started a week-and-a-half ago), Daenerys Stormborn Targaryen and Robb Stark have not shared any screentime.

Hey, Ladies Of SXSW, Steer Clear Of This Guy

South by Southwest, the annual music/film/tech/excuse to eat tacos festival, began last week. It’s a great way to see a bunch of bands and network, we suppose, but it’s also an opportunity to make new friends, in exchange for “services.” At least according to one Craigslist poster, who offered perhaps one of the creepier SXSW…

I Need To Know Who Took This Cake Farting Gig

Only on Craigslist would you find a help wanted ad for a woman to fart on a birthday cake for $50. It’s already awkward to show up at a birthday party when you don’t know anyone, but imagine being the cake farter. You show up at the bar, dressed in your most gas-friendly outfit and…

The Soapbox: Stop Humiliating People For Their Sex Practices Online

For as long as we’re aware of other people’s dirty bits and sexual desires, we’re aware of how funny it can be to talk about them. My niece, for instance, thinks that “butt” is the funniest word in the English language. But she’s six. The grown-up version of “Ha ha, butt!” are those conversations —…

Need A Job? This Brooklyn Writer’s Looking For A Muse, NBD

Office work is such a bore, am I right? Which is why this offer to just sit around listening to this “writer” tell “stories” and type them out sounds like a really great job opportunity. Of course, he’s not looking to pay just anyone to be his muse: you’ve got to be an attractive female…

Guy Talk: I Was Offered Money To Masturbate

The e-mail simply read: I’ll pay you $350.

$350!?

I lay down and thought about this. I thought about a three, a five and a zero. How pretty they looked altogether, no periods to dash out the mass. How nice they would look in my empty piggy bank. I thought about…

Leighton Meester Has Her Own Craigslist “Missed Connection”

FYI, Leighton Meester, this bad boy is dedicated to you! And look, he called you beautiful and referred to Blake Lively as just “that one blonde-haired girl.” (It’s not like she needs her head blown up anymore, what with Leonardo DiCaprio and Ryan Reynolds wooing her.)
