From Creepy To Hot: Ranking Hollywood’s Hottest Creeps

We've been all about Michael Shannon this week, after his hilariously spot on reading of the mean sorority girl letter. Shannon sits at the intersection of both creepy and hot. It's very confusing! Like maybe we'll make out, and then he'll send me threatening letters in the mail? But Shannon's not the only one: There…

Pie Chart: The Anatomy Of Brunch

I'm heading to Portland this week, and me and Winona have plans to get brunch. Do you get brunch? It's practically an Olympic sport in Brooklyn and, says Winona, Portland. There's the waiting, and the outfits, and the hangovers and the drinking and eating. So much stuff goes into brunch! Brunch, brunch, brunch! As such,…

Oh, how I do love a good infographic! This one from Maria Popova's blog Exp.lore.com is clever: it shows each how women have been elected to higher office in each state throughout history.

Is Your Dessert Stomach Ready For Thanksgiving?

You didn't know you had a dessert stomach, did you? Well, you don't. But it would come in handy for Thanksgiving dinner if you did. I mean, where are you supposed to put the pumpkin pie after you've eaten so much stuffing? Sigh. I guess we'll just have to eat less so there's room for…

If You’re Tried On “Law & Order” There’s A Good Chance You’re Guilty

Girl, you better not let the lawyers on "Law & Order" try your case, because you'll likely either end up guilty or serving time. All told, the "L&O" crew have an 80 percent success rate. The obsessives over at Overthinking It created a very complete catalog of all the verdicts over the history of the…

Which Way Are You Spiraling Today?

Every member of The Frisky staff has cried today. It's the equivalent of a moon circle in here. I passed around this Emotional Guidance Scale so we could all identify where we were at. If it's possible to be in both spirals at once, I am simultaneously a number 5 upward (optimism), number 21 downward…

All The Things Michael Phelps Can Do With His 22 Olympic Medals

Michael Phelps must be running out of space for all 22 of his Olympic medals. Poor dude. Pleated Jeans came up with some ideas for alternative uses for all those medals. I vote for accessorizing with them. He could make a really fashion forward belt. [Pleated Jeans] [Art: Pleated Jeans]…

Venn Diagram: Channing Tatum Vs. Kellan Lutz

Yesterday, Winona IM'd me with a question of utmost importance: "What's the difference between Kellan Lutz and Channing Tatum?" My head just about exploded. "OH MY GOD SO MUCH EVERYTHING!!!!" my fingers typed with ferocity. Then I decided the differences (and few similarities) could be best depicted in Venn diagram form. So here you go,…

Some Things Just Deserve Better Names

This is a very good start. I have a few more better names for things that I'd like to add. Coffee = Awake Juice. iPhone = Distraction Box. Chairs = Butt Buckets. Instagram = Photo Treasury. Hummus = Snack Sauce. I could really keep going with this all day but I have other things to…

During a recent interview with The Guardian, singer Marilyn Manson expressed his interest in "passing [his] demented genius on to some small thing who can set fire and breath profanity."

Venn Diagram: Read The Book Or See The Movie?

Hollywood has gotten lazy, so these days, movie studios either remake movies, produce sequels to blockbusters, or adapt popular books into movies. Of the latter, many of these films don't do justice to the original material, but a special, rare few actually improve upon the book and the story translates better to the screen. (There…

So many acts of cannibalism. So many of them involving bath salts. It can only mean one thing: The Zombie Apocalypse is up on us. My survival skills are pathetic, so I've mapped out all of the recent cases involving flesh-eating to determine where I should go to seek cover. Random acts of cannibalism seem…

Face-Off: “Mad Men”‘s Pete Campbell & “Game Of Thrones”‘ Theon Greyjoy Are Kind Of The Same Person

I love Sunday night television. "Game of Thrones" with a "Mad Men" chaser, nothing is more satisfying! But in the last few weeks, I've noticed something. Theon Greyjoy on "Game of Thrones" is basically the Pete Campbell of Westeros. Think about it. Both are so pathetic you might feel sorry for them, if they weren't…

The 6 Types Of Wedding Dates

There is a reason why I prefer to go to weddings solo -- for fear that I will bring numbers one through five as my date. I enjoy bringing my self respect as my plus one and dancing until I no longer have any. [Buzzfeed] Artwork by Christiann MacAuley. You can see more…
