Sarah Haskins Looks Back On The Ads Of 2009 And Voms

God love ya, Sarah Haskins, for this hilarious "Target: Women" spot on women-targeted ads of 2009. Just a snippet: "The kids are ungrateful. Our husbands are idiots. And keeping our bushes neat is a full-time job!" Here's hoping advertisements in 2010 will be less sexist and dumb!

You Are Never Safe! But At Least Sarah Haskins Makes It Funny

"If you're a woman alone, you're a victim waiting to happen!" Thank God someone is finally saying those BE AFRAID ALL THE TIME commercials are really super dumb—sensationalized "rape fables," as our girl Sarah Haskins calls them. Not every knock at the door means a psycho burglar-rapist is afoot!

Laundry: The Adderall Of Chores

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…

Sarah Haskins On “Tough Love”

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 Haski…

“Women Are ALWAYS Thinking About Weddings!”

Seriously, I am so over weddings, I could just friggin' die. Between THAT MOVIE and all the bridal fashion shows and the wedding magazines taunting me from the newsstand saying, "Buy me Amelia, you really need to plan your wedding NOT do the New York magazine crossword!"
