Do you know this actress’s name? It’s not a big deal if you don’t. I didn’t, until I used Google, which is what you do when you don’t know a famous person’s name and you’re going to write about them on the Internet, right? I can tell you who she isn’t, though, and that’s actor Idris Elba. I am absolutely certain of this. Armani’s social media people, on the other hand? Not so much. Keep reading »
No Steve, it’s not because you never take your knit hat off and your hair smells like a combination of bacon grease and stale popcorn. No, it’s that you thought the perfect knit hat accoutrement would be another, tinier knit hat – for your ears. I would try using something like logic on you — but as stated above, such things won’t really work in this scenario. So that’s why we’re breaking up. I expect my knitting needles back ASAP. Thanks.
Old Navy wanted to create a line of sports-enthused tees to pander to fans of virtually any team. So they partnered with SuperFan Nation to create a line of more than 70 tees representing colleges from across the United States. Sounds like a wise marketing move. Except Old Navy made the fatal mistake of not proofreading their T-shirts before sending them into production. Notice anything a bit off about the spirited “Lets Go Dawgs” and “Lets Go Rebels” shirts posted above? Oh that’s right. The shirts are missing an apostrophe on “let’s.” The clothing retailer wouldn’t say whether it bothered going to each university to gain logo approval, but it’s safe to say somebody really dropped the ball. In the meantime, if you’d like to grab a special grammatically incorrect version of your school’s team shirt, act fast. “To ensure Old Navy customers can enjoy this collection fully,” said a statement from the company, “we’re replacing the faulty Ts at our stores and online as soon as possible.” [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
It’s not a secret that the pork lovers over at J&D’s adore their bacon so much they’ll go to extreme lengths to spread the love. They’ve made Bacon Salt, Baconnaise, Bacon Lip Balm and even Bacon Lube (um, yeah), so it was entirely plausible that their latest launch, Bacon Baby Formula, was as real as Frito Pie. Launched with a press release detailing supposed scientific research on the competitive edge babies who drink this smokey concoction will have — “It ensures that your infants get the fat, proteins and complex nutrients that they need to excel at an early age, all in a savory, delicious tasting formula.” — the new product caused a veritable internet s**t storm yesterday and blew up on Fail Blog. Alas, it was too good (or bad) to be true. Late last night we received an email straight from J&D’s headquarters, fessing up that it was all an April Fool’s Day hoax. However, judging from all the attention it got, we wouldn’t be surprised if they went ahead and moved forward with production. Keep reading »
Apparently, Hollywood pressure can really get to a (spice) girl. Mel B is married to some producer dude who had something to do with some new movie called, “Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans” that we will likely never see. It premiered last night. Whatever. But The Daily Mail reports that when she realized “she would be sharing the red carpet with A-listers Eva Mendes and Charlize Theron, she knew she would have to go the extra mile to get attention.” Oddly, she kind of went the opposite of an extra mile and uh, fell a little short. Seriously. Tragically. Short. [The Daily Mail]

Here’s a good potential Regretsy candidate—pointless beards made of felt by Etsy seller I Made You A Beard. Please tell us people would not a) pay $75 for one, and b) wear it in public. Or am I being terribly unfair here? [Etsy.com] Keep reading »
