Poll: Should There Be An Age Limit For Mixed Martial Arts Fighting?

This morning, I happened to stumble upon a CNN photo gallery of children partaking in a MMA fight … in a cage. Participants as young as age five are allowed to compete in the Thunderdome, where “they punch, kick, tackle and choke each other,” with their hands and feet. I asked myself, “How many parent…

Final Duel: See Which WTF?! Halloween Costumes Made It To Our Last Battle

This may come as a shock to you, but life-sized vaginas and costumes of fictional characters receiving fellatio are considered poor taste.

Who Wore It Best: Pre-Memorial Day White Edition

It's not yet Memorial Day, the traditional time when it's apparently okay to wear white again. Where or how this stupid tradition began, I don't know, but I do know that I've been completely indoctrinated into it, and won't wear white before the end of may.

Love It Or Leave It: I Want To Know Who Is Responsible For Pink’s Torso-Baring, Cut-Out Crazy Dress

Listen, I've never thought of Pink (binomial: P!nk) as a particularly well-dressed person, but this is a new low nonetheless. On the bright side, I like her pastel quiff!

Poll: How Often Do You Shave Your Armpits?

Look, I went to a women's college (Mount Holyoke!) for a year, and I saw a lot of hairy things. I don't judge. But for myself, I choose to shave as often as I am in the shower, which is just about every day. I understand that not everyone is like this, however, and i…
