One of the reason why I love Sarah Haskin’s “Target: Women” videos is that sometimes they force me to laugh at my own stereotypical womanly ways. This week, she goes off on detergent commercials which make it seem like women love doing laundry. “Why can’t we break the spin cycle?” she asks. “Because when you’re high on laundry, life is just better… it smells better.” Can I just say, this fits me to a T? I love doing laundry and nothing makes me squeal like the downy freshness of just washed towels. The only thing better? The smell of bleach. Keep reading »
It’s a wonder the human race has survived this long. Why? Because women are single, crazy, and conniving. But if we all follow “Tough Love” matchmaker Steve Ward’s rules, we’ll end up living a life of bliss. And by bliss, I mean we’ll get hitched … and then divorced. Watch this video of Sarah Haskins taking on “Tough Love.” Normally, Steve’s rules make sense to me, but seeing him and the single women and hearing his rules put together in this clip makes me rethink everything.

Supposedly, if I were to cut out soda from my diet, I would lose 15 lbs. But I don’t want to lose 15 lbs. and especially not at the expense of my Diet Coke addiction — Current’s Sarah Haskins feels my pain. In her first 2009 installment of “Target Women,” she takes New Year’s diet resolutions to task. Like swapping your favorite unhealthy snacks for healthier options — like a fifth of whiskey instead of a sick pack of beer! Her new fad diet proposal at the end is hilarious — but could get you an ear infection. Whatever it takes to be skinny! Keep reading »

#8 — Our Pick: Sarah Haskins AskMen’s Pick: Rob Kay
We had to make a bit of a leap with this pick, as Rob Kay is the dude who created the video game Rock Band and I could not, for the life of me, think of any female video game influencers because, duh, we, in general, don’t play video games. But we do like VIDEOS! One of our favorite web video stars is Sarah Haskins, who has her own show, “Target Women”, on Current. Every few weeks she tackles a new topic facing women with her hysterical, dead-pan, feminist perspective. Whether she’s talking about women and pooping or women and Sarah Palin, she always hits the nail on the head. Yes, we have a girl crush. And just because we have a lot of girl crushes, doesn’t mean the one we have on her isn’t extra special. Keep reading »
I have been wishin’ and prayin’ and hopin’ that Current’s Sarah Haskins would tackle the topic of women and bodily functions. And now she has! Forget the ticking baby-makin’ biological clock — the doodie clock is far more impatient. Keep reading »
