10 Corgis Getting Ready For Halloween

Corgis are, to me, God's comedy. I understand that they had some breeding reason to make a dog with short legs and a wide body, but come on, look at those guys! THEY ARE WALKING HILARITY! And what's better than a regular ol' corgi doing corgi things? A corgi in a costume. Which is why…

The Drunkest Night Before Christmas

Funny or Die's drunk retelling of "The Night Before Christmas" is like no other Christmas tale you've heard. Drunk Allan McLeod recites the poem while Ryan Gosling, Jim Carrey and Eva Mendes attempt to act it out. It looks like someone dipped into the Christmas brandy early. [Funny or Die]…

Now Is The Cat Santa Suit Of Our Discontent

There may be nothing cats hate more than wearing clothes. That's because cats, unlike dogs, absolutely feel humiliation and embarrassment in a real way.

Great Find: Bright And Happy Slap Watches

We all loved slap bracelets when we were kids -- we played with them (until they were banned), simply because they’re addictively fun. Duh.

Someone Got “Carrie”-d Away With Xmas

I like "Sex and the City" as much as any other girl, but with these new holiday ornaments, I think some people's obsession might have gone a little bit too far. They retail for $12.99 and HBO's created an entire assortment -- including a martini, mini purse, Eiffel Tower, and high heel. Over the…

season savings: We found it! The Perfect Purse

Requirements for buying any woman a gift: 1. One size fits all. Too big is unfortunate and too small is a suicide attempt waiting to happen. 2. It must be a classic style. When you have the universal fashion nod of approval it's unlikely your cousin Tammy will return it. 3. It still has to…
