scientist makeup

A study by researchers in Bangor University and Aberdeen University surveyed 44 students and reported that subjects found women with makeup less attractive than the same women without makeup. They actually proved this with numbers. Numbers! Look, Mom, I scienced! The study was published by the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology and picked up yesterday by TIME.

The Frisky was not present when this study was conceived, but we like to imagine it looked something like this: Keep reading »

Watch This Couple’s Taylor Swift-Inspired Baby Announcement

We Are Having, Having, Having Another Baby

When Nate and Erica Eaton found out they were expecting a second child, they were shocked. They figured their friends and family would be surprised too, so they put together a video that switched up the lyrics to Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” to share the good news in a this clever video. If the quirky announcement they made for their first pregnancy is any indication (Nate is a newscaster for WRIC news in Richmond, Virgina), they must be really fun parents! In my humble opinion, the real star of this video their adorable baby, who pretty much steals the show. [Just Jared]

Watch This: A Dove Parody Ad That Asks Men To See The “Real Beauty” Of Their Ballsacks

Dove Parody Ad: The Real Beauty Of Ballsacks
"Tell me about ... your sack."

The internet is bursting with parodies of Dove’s Real Beauty ads, and if you ask me, there can never be too many. This one actually came out a year ago, but I just stumbled upon it, and it’s too good not to share. The idea behind it is simple: what if the forensic artist in Dove’s famous “Sketches” ad was enlisted to help men see the real beauty of … their ballsacks? Just watch. [YouTube]

Joan Rivers Refuses To Apologize For Her Tasteless “Joke” About The Cleveland Kidnapping Victims

Not Funny, Joan

Joan Rivers made a not-so-funny “joke” on “The Today Show” yesterday about the three Cleveland women who were kidnapped by deranged creep Ariel Castro and held captive in his home for a decade. When describing how cramped her daughter’s guest room in her home is, Rivers joked that “Those women in the basement in Cleveland had more space,” much to the horror and awkward fumbling of her “Today” interviewers.

Word got back to the kidnapping victims Amanda Berry, Gina de Jesus, and Michelle Knight, who were deeply offended. Lawyers for  DeJesus and Berry reached out to Rivers in a statement:

Our clients have become aware of Joan Rivers’ unfortunate comparison of living in her daughter’s guest room to their captivity. We understand that Ms. Rivers is a comedienne; however, the idea that a celebrity would say something this hurtful, on national television, no less, is beyond shocking and disappointing. Our clients are strong, private women who have endured unwanted and often painful media attention for quite some time. They now have to endure this, which is a new low, and we believe a sincere apology is warranted.

Rivers, however, feels she has nothing to apologize for. “They got to live rent free for more than a decade. One of them has a book deal. Neither are in a psych ward. They’re okay. I bet you within three years one of them will be on ‘Dancing With The Stars,’” she told TMZ. Damn, Joan.  Keep reading »

Are You Living In The Funniest City In America?

Are You Living In The Funniest City In America?

The University of Colorado Boulder’s Humor Research Lab (yes, that’s an actual thing) has created a Humor Algorithm to determine which cities in America are most likely to leave you giggling — and what type of humor makes residents of that city laugh the most. Every major city has a personality of its own, so it would only make sense that this would bleed into the city’s taste for comedy.

Scientist Peter McGraw, the Humor Lab’s director, teamed up with journalist Joel Warner to collect nine months’ worth of data on individual cities’ Internet usage and comedy industries. The team measured patterns like the number of visits to Cheezburger websites, comedy clubs per square mile, touring comedians’ ratings of comedy club audiences, the percentage funny tweeters and famous comedians born in each city, and the number of humor-related web searches in the city. Once they had a top 10, the team surveyed over 900 residents to understand the types of humor they relate to and each city’s local flavor of laughs.

Check out the top-ranking cities after the jump! Keep reading »
