H&M Clothing Trash Scandal Update—Something’s Still Fishy

Shame, H&M, shame. Last week we learned that both the trend-forward retailer and Wal-Mart engage in the odd and wasteful practice of destroying unsold merchandise, and throwing it in the trash. Both companies scrambled to come up with apologetic statements, a rep for H&M vowing that it was an anomalous error that wouldn’t reoccur: “It will not happen again. We are committed 100 percent to make sure this practice is not happening anywhere else, as it is not our standard practice.”

Yet when New York’s WPIX recently returned to the scene of the crime, reporters came across an employee hauling bag after bag of shoes into a truck. When asked where the bags were going, the employee clearly stated, “In the trash,” as if it should be obvious. When they questioned if he was aware of H&M’s wasteful shredding and trashing method, he got shy, repeatedly saying, “I can’t comment on that.”

Of course, all of us are watching this, completely appalled. Why wouldn’t H&M or Wal-Mart drop the clothes off at a charity? It would require the same manpower and resources. Yet, there is a reason why retailers wouldn’t want their merchandise going back into circulation. Keep reading »

Dude With Biggest Penis In The World Is Unemployed

 

And you thought you had it hard in this economy. Not even Jonah Falcon, the man with the biggest penis in the world, can find a job. At 39, Falcon, whose penis is 13.5 inches long, is among the ranks of the unemployed. While he’s worked as a freelance journalist, his dream is to become a screenwriter. He thought his big break had come when HBO created a series about a well-endowed male prostitute, “Hung.” Tragically, they didn’t want Falcon or his expertise. Nowadays, he spends his time looking for work and living with his mom. You’d think he might make a foray into the adult movie industry during these trying times, but he refuses. If he did porn, he says, “Nobody would take me seriously. Nobody.” You’d think there’s be some way for a guy with his, er, talent to make money. Hmmm … Can’t you girls think of something?

Unicorn Samurai, Be My Valentine

Is it too early to start thinking about Valentine’s Day? Because, right now, I don’t have a valentine, and I saw this video of Mr. Unicorn Samurai, and watching him gallivant around in his thong, I wondered: Would this, could this unicorn man ever be mine? Is it too much for a girl to dream? Maybe. I really like the way he wields his, um, sword. Keep reading »

Beauty School Reality TV Pitch Backfires, Big Time

Andy Warhol’s “15 minutes of fame” prediction has certainly panned out, and the accessibility of some any degree of stardom puts dollar signs in people’s eyes and motivates them to make crazy, horrible moves (like Balloon Boy’s parents!). Students at an Alameda, California beauty school feel burned, and it has nothing to do with all those chemicals lying around. That’s because they got hold of a rather insulting TV pitch:

“The students are mostly inner-city, unwed mothers taking advantage of government subsidies for a better life. The instructors can’t find any other job that offers ‘bennies’ [benefits]. The new owners are white, naive suburbanites bleeding cash and trying to keep it all under control.”

Cute! Not. More after the jump … Keep reading »

Insane, Ballsy Move: Weatherproof Puts Obama Ad In Times Square

Clothing company Weatherproof just scored quite the plum spokesmodel: Who better to vouch for their spiffy, sporty jackets than President Obama looking handsome and rugged at The Great Wall of China? In fact, he charges much less than Linda Evangelista (actually, he costs zero dollars), and they’re so dang proud they just went ahead and plastered the ad right up in the middle of Times Square, one of the crossroads of the world. Why exactly is this such an extraordinary, awe-inspiring feat? Because Obama had absolutely no say in the move, and therefore Weatherproof clearly has some pretty huge cajones.

So how did this happen exactly? Keep reading »

Not Cool: H&M And Wal-Mart Trash Unsold Clothes

Where does unsold fashion merchandise go to die? In an ideal world, it would go to charity. For H&M and Wal-Mart, it apparently gets slashed so it’s unwearable, and then chucked in the garbage. One New Yorker made this sad discovery when she happened upon tons of black trash bags filled with H&M clothing ruined with intentional cuts and holes. Some of the items even included winter jackets that retailed for as much as $129, and the store location was down the street from a charity coat collection post. It looks as if Wal-Mart is also guilty of this wasteful procedure even though a company rep told the New York Times that clothes are “normally” donated.

How can this be?

Where Was This Video Two Weeks Ago?

Over Christmas, I had the unique opportunity to apartment-sit for Wendy, who has two cats I looked after: Miles, who is fat and cute, and Simone, who swatted and hissed at me every chance she got. In any case, Miles and I pretty much fell in love — I still pine for him — but if only I had seen this video back then! I am sure that I would have wrapped Miles up like the Christmas gift he deserves to be. Damn, the cat in this video is patient, though. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
