Wisconsin News Anchor Responds To Fat Shamer In Powerful, Inspiring Fashion

When I was in elementary school, I was teased constantly and mercilessly about my weight. Classmates called me fat, ugly, worthless, disgusting, and for awhile my official nickname seemed to be "tub of lard." Pretty much every afternoon I'd get off the bus, wait until it had disappeared around the corner, and burst into tears.

Rick Santorum Should Have 72-Hour Waiting Period Before He Can Abort His Campaign

Not that I wanted Sen. Rick Santorum to continue his presidential campaign of caveman asshattery. But it doesn't seem fair that he should get to just, you know, choose that choice for himself while women around the country are forced to wait up to 72 hours to make a decision about their own freakin' uterus.

Woman Chops Onions On The Subway, Calls It Performance Art

When you live in NYC, you see your fair share of "performance art" on the subway. My personal favorite is the old lady who plays "The Chicken Dance" on a recorder. I always watch her. But everyone else gets the Blank Stare. That's when I put on my headphones and pretend like I don't see…

The Definitive Juggalo Documentary Is Here (NSFW)

The film experience I've been longing for is here! "American Juggalo" is Sean Dunne's short documentary filmed at this year's Gathering of the Juggalos. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around this misunderstood subculture. I know they paint their faces, drink Faygo, listen to "horror rap," and are "down with the clown until dead…

Gerard Depardieu is apparently not too embarrassed by the incident last month whereby he peed himself on an airplane from Paris to Dublin when a flight attendant told him he couldn't use the bathroom.

Don Cheadle Is Captain Planet

Last month, I let you know that the Cartoon Network was working on a live-action version of "Captain Planet," the '90s cartoon that encouraged kids to recycle and turn off lights.
