Hitched: On Mothers-In-Law (And Mother-In-Law Jokes)

I have known since I was a wee child that someday, there would be a woman in my life that I would hate more than any person on the planet. She will be the epitome of all things evil; a seething skin-bag of meddlesome, ignorant lady-pus, hardly worthy to walk among us and yet, walk among us she will. Unabashed, her goal in life will be to make me miserable. She will shame me and mock me and re-fold my towels in the most offensive possible way, all in the name of “helping.” She will make passive aggressive comments about my weight and my pot roast. She will kiss my husband on the mouth in front of me.

She will be my mother-in-law. Keep reading »

knicks sexist ad
  • Whoever does advertising for the New York Knicks must have thought this ad about bagging “sixes” and “sevens” was a 10, when it’s really a zero. People are people, not numbers ranking them on their attractiveness. I was going to call this ad “sexist,” but really, it’s more all-around douchey for either gender. [VIBE]

D.L. Hughley On Black Women: “Angry All The Time”

Today's Lady News photo
  • Actor D.L. Hughley said some offensive shit on NPR about women, especially black women, in a recent interview. Regarding women, he criticized our ability to reason and said, “If a man can have a face only a mother can love, then women can have personalities only fathers can love.” Of black women in particular, he said they are “angry all the time” and ”I’ve never met an angrier group of people.” BRAIN. EXPLODES. Later on in the interview, he says he “respects” black women, which is so unapparent in the rest of what he says. [NPR via Naturally Moi] Keep reading »

Today In UGH: Adam Carolla Joins Fox News

Adam Carolla

The former “Man Show” host Adam Carolla has been all too happy to be a professional douche. That time he said women are not as funny as men? The time he asked, “When did we start giving a shit about [transgender] people?” So … SURPRISE! … now Carolla has joined Fox News as a commentator. He’ll be chumming it up with Bill O’Reilly on “The O’Reilly Factor” and appear on other shows occasionally as well.

The last thing that network needs is another dude who tries to pass off bigotry as “humor.” I understand that Carolla has some opinions that might be considered “liberal,” but I sure as shit do not consider a homophobic sexist qualified to represent me or most other liberals I know. Another reason not to watch this trash (although, in fairness, the only time I watch any Fox News is when my nearly-70-year-old suburban Republican father puts it on when I go visit — so, enjoy Dad!). [NYMag.com] [Photo: Getty]

swiffer man up clean up

Yes, men cleaning. Who’d've thunk, right?!  Just a T-shirt, Swiffer? Not a Boy Scout badge? Or the Nobel Prize, perhaps?  I mean, men cleaning is obviously such a rare and uncommon practice that you think guys deserve a T-shirt bragging “Caution: Men Being Awesome” for wiping a Swiffer across the floor. (Which, as someone who also does not like to clean, I don’t think we can justifiably call “cleaning.”) It’s all part of the world’s dopiest Facebook contest called “Man Up, Clean Up” for men who are “clean, dirty, skilled or clueless” to go to Swiffer’s page and share stories of why it is “worth it” to help with household cleanups. More blowjobs? Not getting roaches? THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS. And just think, when you win that T-shirt, you’ll have something to use as a rag. [BusinessWire]
