Martha Stewart Makes Karl Lagerfeld Look Normal In A Crazy Cat People Faceoff

Karl Lagerfeld vs. Martha Stewart: who is the stranger pet owner? It’s a tough call. On one hand, we have Karl, whose Siamese cat (Choupette!) inspired a Chanel couture collection and has two personal maids who keep a diary on her behalf. On the other, we have Martha, who named her kittens Emperor Ch’in (after…

$1,800 Sneakers Made Of Genetically Engineered Stingray Skins, Anyone?

Just when I start to think that disgusting displays of excess have reached capacity, someone comes up with the idea of genetically engineering stingrays in order to produce unique colorful designs on the shagreen (the hide of the stingray) to then be made into shoes. Sneakers, to be exact. This is apparently a real thing,…

How Did You Like Our Date? Tell Me In A Detailed Survey!

Last month, we told you about the finance guy who catalogued and kept track of his online dates via spreadsheet. As someone who loves spreadsheets and enjoys organizing things, I kind of found this a neat trick. Now we bring you the story of a 24-year-old finance guy (it’s always finance guys) who has hi…

Pete Doherty Auctions Off A Painting Featuring Amy Winehouse’s Blood

Musician Pete Doherty is one of my favorite misunderstood anti-heroes, a true artist and transcendent thinker whose messages are often sadly sacrificed to his drug-addled lifestyle. He said it best in one of his own songs: “I’m so clever, but clever ain’t wise.” His inconsistencies are glaringly apparent, but Pete is openly, unapologetically who he…

Could Snail Cream Become The Next “Miracle Product”?

The beauty industry is no stranger to the use of questionable practices. Demi Moore famously underwent a blood-sucking treatment by leeches, and Madonna was said to have been a fan of a solution that counted human placenta among its components. Even the seemingly untouchable Kate Middleton was recently outed for using bee venom in lieu…

The Woman Who Singlehandedly Ruined Your Childhood, Revealed

Growing up in the ’90s, I was crazy about Lisa Frank. Stickers, notebooks, folders, pencils — I had all of the school accessories, and though I was impossibly chagrined at the time, these days I am so thankful my mother never let me delve into the realm of her clothing and stuffed animals. That would…

Introducing The Frisky’s March Madness!

For the last couple of weeks, our office has been buzzing about March Madness — as our coworkers debate who’s going to win in this year’s NCAA tournament. Most of us Frisky girls don’t really give a crap about that (though yes, sports are fun and yada yada yada.) But bracket games are fun! And…

Neat Needlework: Totally Severe’s Truly Weird Embroidery

Sarah over at Totally Severe really knows how to make embroidery happen. But she doesn’t do your standard hearts and flowers kind of stuff. Oh no, she does whimsical, pop culture-laden designs that will make you laugh and probably scratch your head. As she explains it, “These are the products of idle hands and a…

Stella McCartney Horse Shirt Freaks Us Out

Please tell us that this Stella McCartney horse shirt makes you feel a little weird, too. I mean, something’s just off about it, right? We tried to give the thing the benefit of the doubt, but every time we were prepared to write it off to quirkiness, there it was, staring at us from another…

Let’s Go To The Hair Show

In case you couldn’t make it down to the ATL for the Bronner Bros. International Hair Show last weekend, Black Voices has an eye-popping slide show of the craziest hairdos that you have ever seen. “The more outrageous, the better,” indeed. NASCAR racetrack hair! A Michael-Jackson-shaved-into-the-back-of-the-scalp fade! And something that looks like a banana plant.

Dude, Your Flexibility Is Freaking Me Out

Yeah, uh, I don’t know. This guy? He’s kind of freaking me out. He’s so … flexible. This vintage ad for Cricketeer suits is intended to show that this — ahem — polyester suit will “give you almost as much freedom as [your] birthday suit,” but I walk away from it with nothing but the…

Would You Rock It With Kitty Earbuds?

In case you haven’t heard, ears are the new “it” body part. Fittingly, the days of discreet earbuds are over, and now it’s time to rock your earbuds wild-style. These earphones are manufactured by a Japanese company called Thanko and come paired with a set of furry cat ears in pink or black. While you’re…

Would You Rock: Zombie High Heels?

I love ‘em. Would I rock ‘em? I’m not so sure. UK retailer Iron Fist offers these Zombie Stomper Platform Peep-Toes for £44.99 or around $90. The day-glo green and hot pink whomper-stompers come with a 4-1/2-inch heel plus a 1-inch platform, so they’re not for the shy, dainty, or wobbly. Over the peep-toe, there’…

Do Normal People Have Dates This Bad?

I have had some bad dates. Not the yelling or fighting type. Not the kind where anyone gets left in a restaurant. No, my bad dates are the ones you don’t want to tell anyone. You know you could win the prize for worst date, but the prize is not worth your dignity. In fact,…

You Know You Want Me

Hey. You. Yeah, you. The guy at the other end of the bar. The tall, dark, handsome fellow. Holding your sunglasses. Sporting that black jacket. The white shirt. The day-old stubble. AND THE LATEX STOCKINGS WITH MATCHING THONG AND GARTERS. I was trolling the internet when I encountered this fellow. He’s really … something, isn’t…

Stop Staring At Me With Your Giant Eyeball Head

Here’s looking at you, kid. This model wasn’t crying when she paraded down the runway during Milan Fashion Week wearing this surrealist-psycho ensemble designed by Madrid’s Agatha Ruiz de la Prada — or, heck, was she? It’s impossible to tell with that giant eyeball she’s wearing on her head. Who knew cyclopses were the new…

Would You Date A Man Who Wears These Shoes?

Every so often, I like to visit this website that sells some of the most extreme shoes that you have ever laid eyes on, some of which are stripper shoes, because pole dancers like their stilettos crazy. In addition to the fact that several are eight inches high and upwards, some glow in the dark,…
