I’m a pretty big fan of YouTube hair and beauty tutorials. Without them, my sock bun and liquid eyeliner game would be terrible rather than “eh, I guess it’s good enough to leave the house like this.” But I think I love this YouTube beauty tutorial, from the hilarious and relatable and cool Akilah Hughes (of First Black Girlfriend fame), the very most. Because seriously, “Your face may probably never look like this, no matter how many of these products you use” really is the damn truth. [YouTube]
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, but the song itself is surprisingly fun to listen to. Something tells me that if Jonah actually wrote lyrics for the band, we’d be hearing something a bit more creative on the radio these days … if it wasn’t bleeped out. [Gawker]
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 the candy on Amazon, these gummy bears are incredibly tasty going in and incredibly painful coming out. As I’m a journalist, I plan on finding and ingesting these bears myself to confirm the validity of the reviews. I have a very strong and regular constitution, so if these Haribo sugarless gummies manage to give me “projectile diarrhea so foul and so watery it could have gone through … nylons,” as one reviewer described, you’ll know they’re to be avoided. I’ll report back! In the meantime, check out some more of the hilarious reviews of these unintentional laxatives after the jump! [Amazon via Slightly Viral] Keep reading »
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 her Alpha Bits cereal looking for it! Fortunately, her Notary Public father signed off on the document, so she was free to accept renumerance from the Tooth Fairy. Ah, lawyers.
