Today’s Lady News: A Horse Is Not A Woman, espnW

  • So ESPN has this new site for women, right? And espnW ran an end-of-year news roundup called “The 10 Biggest Stories In Women’s Sports,” right? And #4 on that list was about a female horse. Yes, a horse. A horse ridden by a male jockey, too. How do we feel about that? And did anyone consider that including a horse in a list of great moments of women’s sports might be perceived as offensive? [Guardian UK]
  • Inspired by my post yesterday on BJs-while-sleeping, Crushable has tips on how to “sleep sex” your mate so it’s pleasantly surprising, not creepily violating. [Crushable]
  • Kathryn Gray of New Brunswick, Canada, age 10, became the youngest person to discover a supernova (an exploding star). When I was 10 years old I think I still picked my nose. [CNN]

Finding True Love Is About As Likely As Getting Kicked In The Head By A Horse

While the bell curve is used to organize data for things that have already happened (that chemistry test that most of the class got a “D” on), the Poisson curve, originally developed to measure the likelihood of getting kicked to death by a horse during battle, predicts things that we either fear or hope happens, like, for example, finding love. Writer Michael Kaplan compares the likelihood of certain horse death to finding true love in one’s life in an article in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. Statistically? The chances are very, very rare.

Santa Pony Is Not Amused

A horse is a horse, of course, unless that horse is wearing a really stupid costume. The horses in this collection from “The Horse Tailor” are dressed to the nines — whether they like it or not. [Thrillist] Keep reading »

Einstein The Horse Is Smaller Than Your Cat

With the Kentucky Derby this Saturday, we have horses on the brain, and the cutest one we’ve ever seen came into the world just last week. Einstein the horse was born last Thursday, April 22, weighing just 6 pounds, which means he’s overthrown (underthrown?) the current Guinness record for a newborn horse, 9 pounds. Click through to watch a video of the amazing Einstein in action; he may never win a Derby, but he’s already won our hearts. Keep reading »

France’s Guerre De Cuisine Focuses On Horse Meat

In a country that adores cheese and foie gras, vegans in France are a joke in the same way that Lindsay Lohan thinks she’s a designer. So you’d think the French wouldn’t give a damn about politically correct food. However, tensions have risen lately in Paris over the use of horse meat in contemporary cuisine. Last week, the trendy Le Fooding event went down, this year’s theme being “Les Incorrects,” meaning meals filled with indulgent and controversial ingredients. One dish focused on horse meat, and in response, an anti-horse meat group (only term we could think of for them) ramped up its presence in the city with campaign buses and in-your-face subway advertisements. Brigitte Bardot‘s still-existing animal rights foundation has apparently been combating the issue as well.

So now you have something to throw in the face of the next snobby Frog who condemns American food culture. “Hey, Americans might be obese … but at least we didn’t get fat by eating horses.” [Je Ne Mange Pas De Cheval] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: You Go, Girl!

Rachel Alexandra was the only girl racing in the Preakness Stakes today, but she whipped the boys, becoming the first filly in 85 years (and the fifth in the history of the race) to win. After the race, Calvin Borel, the jockey who rode her, said, “She’s every jock’s dream horse.” Yeah, she is! [Baltimore, MD, 5/16/09] Keep reading »

    Kentucky Derby Horse Is Not A Stud

    Former Kentucky Derby winner War Emblem is our kind of guy. Unlike most thoroughbred studs, who mate with any mare that gallops their way, War Emblem is incredibly choosy about who he beds. His owners bought him for $17 shortly after he won the 2002 Derby, and they have been trying to bring out his sexual side, to no avail. “You name it we’ve tried it,” said Nobuo Tsunoda, director of the Shadai Stallion Station. “We had him on Viagra — that didn’t work. I even went into (Sapporo’s) red light district with 300,000 yen in cash and brought back a lot of ‘special’ medicine to try and perk him up. It’s very odd. He’s not impotent. He’s just very choosy about his women. He’s more human than animal. Basically he’s a bit of a weirdo.” War Emblem is not a weirdo, he’s just sensitive. [Reuters] Keep reading »

    Crave: Moisturize Your Horse Hair

    Last night I was watching Blades of Glory and a big joke in the movie was that Will Ferrell’s ice-skating character, who is obsessed with his hair, uses Mane & Tail horse shampoo. It’s actually not funny. Fashion and beauty editors have lauded the powerful conditioning skills of the brand — Lucky has included it in the magazine several times. So maybe people should stop knocking Chazz Michael Michaels and go out and buy some Mane & Tail themselves. I’m going to. [Medicice] Keep reading »
