Making Fun Of Hipsters: It Just Never Gets Old

There's a dark period in my life that I don't walk about very much. It's the time when I lived in a Brooklyn neighborhood called Bushwick. You've probably seen it on "Girls." Fittingly, my roommate then worked at American Apparel. It was a brief but memorably terrible time of warehouses, leotards and constantly feeling squicky…

The Amazon Reviews For Haribo Sugarless Gummy Bears Are Disgustingly Hilarious

The reviews on Amazon are often a treasure trove of hilarity, but occasionally they are both amusing and educational. For example, I had no idea until today that if I were to eat a handful of Haribo sugarless gummy bears, I could expect my insides to turn into hot lava. According to the hundreds of reviews for…

Lawyer Parents Make Their Daughter Sign An Affadavit For The Tooth Fairy

Emily Winter is not just one of our freelancer writers. Once upon a time, she was also a highly suspect little girl whose parents  — both lawyers — made her sign an affidavit to confirm to the Tooth Fairy that she really did lose a tooth she claimed to have lost. She even searched i…

Which Type Of Female Dancer Are You?

If you're like a lot of people, you spent at least part of New Year's Eve in da clurrrb sweatin' off that fifth cocktail. Okay, maybe that was just me. Now I need to watch this video intently and figure out which type of dancer I am/steal some of their moves. I'm probably the "clumsy" or…

This Children’s Book Illustration Is The Dirtiest Thing I’ve Seen All Week

Since I began working at The Frisky, it’s safe to say my mind has taken a permanent vacation in the gutter: I see phallic clouds, vaginal-looking sandwiches and the number 69 is everywhere. So when someone else stumbles upon something unintentionally inappropriate, I smile wide and remember that I’m not alone in this dirty, dirty…

This Is What Happens When Molly’s Grandma Goes Shopping For Christmas Gifts At Spencer’s

A Redditor posted this photo on the site yesterday, explaining, "My cousin Molly's grandma went into Spencer's to look for presents for her family. She thinks she found the best presents ever!" Molly, besides being the name of the completely not amused girl in the Obey shirt, is a nickname for the club drug MDMA.

Hitler Reacts To Getting Tila Tequila’s Sympathy And Support

There really is nothing funny about Tila Tequila's obvious mental health issues, which are evident in her recent rants (excuse me, "satire") about sympathizing with Hitler and fearing lizard people. But there is something funny about Hitler rejecting Tila Tequila's support because, amongst other things, she didn't even call Bobby after "A Shot At Love" finished filming. Thank…

Italian Lady Explains All The Italian Hand Gestures You Need To Know (NSFW)

During all the years I studied Italian, I never learned much of the important stuff I needed in Italy, like "Only with a condom on!" and "Get your hand out of my purse, you fucking pickpocket scum." Too bad comedian Veronika Poli wasn't around. Here are all of the hand gestures you need to know…

Sarah Silverman & W. Kamau Bell Rehash Sexist Joke On “Totally Biased”

Sarah Silverman went on "Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell" on Thursday to hash out ... well, a lot of stuff. First, there were Bell's problems: eight years ago when Silverman's comedy/documentary "Jesus Is Magic" came out, Bell wrote an impassioned blog post (on MySpace, which is what we did back then) about how he…

I Need This Karma Chameleon Phone

I guess back in the '80s some baby genius manufactured a phone reflective of the hit Boy George song "Karma Chameleon." As evidenced by the video, it's a phone shaped like a chameleon that sings to you every time someone calls. I want it, I want it, I want it! [YouTube]…

Robin Thicke Loves And Respects Women, You Hear?

Why did it take comedian Eliot Glazer playing Robin Thicke for me to realize how sleazy this guy looks? The gelled hair, the aviator sunglasses, the one-too-open-buttons shirt ... I know that's maybe not the point of this "Robin Thicke Talk Show" spoof, but I got some serious douchechills. [YouTube]…

A Fake Subway Sign That (Sadly) Should Be Real

You'd think that it'd be pretty obvious: clipping your nails in a public place, especially a crowded subway car, is a bad idea. Not just a bad idea, but also a very unhygienic one. And yet! People still feel totally comfortable doing things they should probably only ever do in the privacy of their ow…

“Breaking Bad” Does R. Kelly’s “Ignition (Remix)” And My Heart Explodes

Is it my birthday? No seriously, is it my birthday? How else can you explain someone creating such a perfect masterpiece of all the things I'm interested in? The only thing that's missing from this extremely comprehensive video of the cast of "Breaking Bad" doing R. Kelly's "Ignition (Remix)" is maybe a basket of kitte…

How To Politely React To Your Friend’s Terrible Engagement

For the most part, I'm super excited when one of my friends gets engaged. Good for them, finding the person of their dreams and shit. But what if your friend gets engaged to someone terrible? How are you supposed to respond to that? Because telling her how you really feel -- "Do you really want to…

Be My Boyfriend: Engineering Student Nick Selby Crushes Georgia Tech Convocation — And Our Hearts

Dear Nick, I watched the inspirational and well-soundtracked speech you gave to the incoming class of engineering students at Georgia Tech, and I was inspired! No, I'll never build an "Iron Man" suit, and I'll likely never attend the Georgia Tech engineering program, because, well, math. But your speech was so powerful -- especially the…

Prince Unveils His New Pancakes-Inspired Album Art

Prince is finally on Twitter, you guys, and it's just about as wonderful as you might expect. The Purple One actually has a sense of humor about himself, or so it would seem based on the new album artwork he just posted via the social media site. Prince, or someone in his entourage made a…

A Penis Cake Pan’s Continued Quest For Relevancy

The penis cake pan's struggle is oft-commemorated in poetry and song. Surely you remember the Dylan Thomas poem "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night (Penis Cake Pan)." It goes: Do not go gentle into that good night penis cake pan / Your novelty cake pan should burn and rave at close of day…
