Earlier this week, model Karlie Kloss tweeted this hilarious side-by-side comparison of her and Will Ferrell sporting some serious floral headgear and asked, “Who wore it best? Me or Will Ferrell? You be the judge.” While both looks are quite striking, I’ve gotta vote for Will, because men in floral swimcaps are–to quote his character in “Zoolander”–“so hot right now.” What do you think?

I love Pinterest, but sometimes browsing through all the bright, shiny pictures and endless tips and tutorials feels like exploring a different world–a world where thighs don’t touch and every meal is cooked in a crockpot and served in a mason jar with a ribbon tied around it. The best way to describe the weird, wacky, wonderful world of Pinterest? In a poem, of course… Keep reading »
Ah, St. Patrick’s Day. There is no reason for everyone to celebrate you but everyone is more than happy to do it anyway. And there are few things in life more deeply stupid than that.
First of all, no one knows who St. Patrick is, but who cares! Let’s all just get super wasted and mumble something incoherent about the Irish! Plus, the name of the beer you’re drinking to forget your problems has an Irish-y name so go forth, young man, and celebrate a holiday about which you know nothing! Read more…
Most think of us see unplanned pregnancy rates as a serious thing, but others think it’s a laughing matter. The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy has ab unorthodox approach to teaching guys sex education: humor. While women ages 18 to 29 receive a lot of messages regarding safer sex practices, the organization believes men in the same group remain widely ignored. Their solution? Create PSAs that appeal to men by making them laugh.

In a landscape littered with unscientific and downright stupid weight loss products, it takes something extra stupid to get our attention. Fortunately, weight loss is a big business, and some of the products on the market today seem purely intended to find out how far they can go before we call bullshit. After all, surely nobody is really out there buying… Read more!
I’ve talked about my often-disastrous relationships in a number of my columns, and every time I do, I get dozens of messages from people asking me to elaborate. Not that I’m an expert — it’s more like how you see a guy come screaming out of the woods covered in bees and you ask him where he found the hive, so you can avoid it.
So, the most common question I get (besides “Will you please stop sending me pictures of your penis?”) is “How do I know if this is the one?” which I think is a stealth way of asking me, “How can I avoid the hellish divorce that haunts your memories?”
Well, if you want to avoid the bees, I say you should always keep in mind … Keep reading »
The courtship process used to be a lot simpler. You used to cruise around in a Firebird and girls would be there, and then there’d be something called heavy petting, and then you were married. The whole process took about three weeks, and could be sped up if the Firebird had been recently washed. The only potentially tricky part was if you had to negotiate a dowry, and that usually wasn’t required unless your bride was Indian or incredibly ugly. Since then, things have gotten far more involved. With our cell phones and our STDs and our Craig’s lists, the courtship process has become incredibly complicated and dangerous, more filled with dangerous loners and viruses and spyware than ever before.

They could have had it all! But instead of rolling in the deep, Adele’s ex-boyfriend (this goofball) is releasing an album of his own called Dan 21 featuring sure-to-be-chart-topping hits like “Someone Like Me” and “You’re Welcome.” Sigh. It has just occurred to me that I could have monetized my breakup with Ex-Mr. Jessica much, much better. [Mirth Mag]
In my life, I’ve received enough bad advice to print out and gift wrap Mount Everest. Everyone is quick to offer it, regardless of whether you asked or not … and with so much coming in, it’s hard to separate genuine wisdom from verbal toilet paper. The problem is that you won’t ever know the answer to that until your problem is over, when you can say, “OK, Chad was right. Punching a bull in the nuts isn’t a good idea.” Or, “Greg is full of shit. Punching them more only made him angrier.”
I’ve, admittedly, never been an authority on advice, but what I can do is warn you who to be wary of. Read more…
Of all the things you see charted in elementary and middle school — the human tongue, the color spectrum– what to expect from romantic relationships would seem to be a pretty conspicuous omission. We asked you to show us the charts you wish you’d seen before you ever admitted to liking someone as more than a friend. Read more…
