The World’s Oldest Pretzel Has Ruined Pretzels For Me

Last week, the world’s oldest pretzel was found in Germany. It’s 250 years old and it looks all sorts of unappetizing. Ew.
Anyway, apparently the pretzel was found in a structure that was probably a bakery in Regensburg, a town that has a lot of history to uncover. It was firebombed during World War II,…

Make It Work: If You Are Sick, Please Stay Home

Offices are nothing more than tiny incubators for illness. They are warm, windowless, unventilated breeding grounds for that gross-ass cold you’ve been dragging around all weekend, like a giant bag of dirty laundry, ready to explode into something much worse and spread everywhere it can.

Sometimes I Use My Hair As Floss And I Am Not Ashamed


Confession: Sometimes, when I have food stuck in my teeth and no floss on hand, I am industrious enough to pluck a hair from my own head to use instead. I’ve never met anyone else who’s been as clever, so for a second, I thought this Gawker headline was about me: “This Woman Uses

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Rosebudding

Yes, rosebudding. What can I say? I am a weirdo who thinks Halloween costumes based on grotesque sexual non-trends are hilarious! All this costume requires is as much rose-printed clothing and accessories as you can find — the more hideous and clashing the better, as this costume is obviously not about beautiful aesthetics. Then, simply…

9 Of The Nastiest Things People Have Found In Their Lunch Salads

Last week, a man allegedly found a rusty nail in his to-go salad from a Manhattan restaurant named, appropriately, “Just Salad.” What is it about salads that attract this ickiness?

At first I was excited. “The Epic, Disgusting Removal of a Blackhead 25 Years in the Making,” posted on Jezebel, sounds exactly like my idea of a good time. I love gross shit, I’m a picker myself, and I think we can all agree (right?) that there is something so disgustingly satisfying about popping a…

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…
