Who would’ve thought a rock song about handies would include such awesome riffs? And who knew there were so many creative lyrics about them? Before Jonah Hill became the star of “Superbad,” he was music producer “Slick Rubin” in this several-years-old Maroon 5 video. (How young does Adam Levine look here?) The skit is pretty hilarious,… READ MORE »
Why didn’t we ever have any teachers this willing to act like total dorks on the Internet? [YouTube]
Meanwhile, a little farther north, a college student learns the best way to handle not having a snow day off is to angrily tweet about it. [Gothamist]

“The Notebook” may be a favorite this time of year, but after 10 years (yes, 10!), it’s due for an upgrade. Like, say, kittens recreating its greatest moments. Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams may be easy on the eyes, but I guarantee that this feline version of the film will leave you much happier than… READ MORE »
Anybody who’s ever been on a conference call knows that a few things are always to be expected:
Awkward conversation between the first two participants until others join.
Two people starting to speak at once, both insisting the other continue.
One person who keeps getting disconnected, and *beep* “It’s me again,… READ MORE »
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… READ MORE »
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… READ MORE »
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 in… READ MORE »
Hi, Publicist Who Sent Us A Press Release About Healthy HooHoo Premium Feminine Care Products!
Thanks for the heads up about how to shower our “most precious parts with these soft and gentle wipes.” And by “most precious parts,” you mean our hoohoos. One thing — is “hoohoo” the name of my vagina? READ MORE »
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… READ MORE »
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… READ MORE »
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. READ MORE »
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. Thanks… READ MORE »
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… READ MORE »
To All Interested Applicants:
Please review the detailed job description before applying. Given that I am too busy with my career, extracurricular activities (like playing Candy Crush and occasionally going to SoulCycle) and an active social life (hanging out with my dog Lucca and tweeting at celebrities) to devote the time required to… READ MORE »
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… READ MORE »
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] … READ MORE »
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] … READ MORE »
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 own… READ MORE »
