We might be just a little obsessed with Angry Birds here at The Frisky. I can even do a halfway decent “heh heh heh” piggy impression when asked! Well, the Easter bunny has a present for us all. The app Angry Birds Seasons (which puts out seasonal versions of the addictive game) introduced an Easter edition with colorful eggs and piggies in bunny ears — for only 99 cents! Come on, get it — those piggies are mocking you. [iTunes Store] Keep reading »
These two Fox News anchors are up in arms over this story straight outta the Pacific Northwest. “I can’t even say it,” says one anchor. “One Seattle elementary school is calling Easter eggs ‘spring spheres.’” She’s right that this is totally ridiculous because an Easter egg hunt is a part of, well, Easter and we wouldn’t start calling Christmas trees “Decemeber Evergreens” now would we? Her co-anchor makes another good point—that eggs aren’t actually sphere shaped.
However, the story they’re so fired up about may not even be true. Keep reading »
Gwyneth Paltrow‘s annoying new cookbook My Father’s Daughter (subtitle: Combining Enough Nutrients To Qualify As “Food” For The Over-Privileged & Beautiful) did not need a dramatic reading by a beatnik in a beret to sound douchey. (Private cooking lessons with Jamie Oliver! Gazpacho in Spain! Silent meditations in Japan!) Yet this melodramatic send up is, dare I say, perfect. [You Tube via Jezebel] Keep reading »
Earlier this week, we learned about a woman who married her truck. Apparently, she is not alone in her romantic love for her vehicle. A BBC documentary, “My Car Is My Lover,” explains more about mechanophilia, a sexual attraction to machinery such as cars, bicycles, or airplanes. Consider me enlightened by the guy who wants to take a car home and “rape it silly.” Cars of the world … beware. I shall tune in for next week’s installment about the woman who married the Eiffel Tower. It’s good to know that I have options in case I am unable to land a human mate. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
TLC’s new hit show isn’t about a family with a whole lot of kids. Nope, it’s about: coupon clippers. But not just any coupon clippers—obsessive couponers who save hundreds of dollars in a single trip to the grocery store … but then live their lives among their collected non-perishables. Which makes them just a step above hoarders in that the insane amount of clutter they’re living in is new crap rather than old, decaying crap. Ahhh, but there is already a scandal with this new show. J’aime Kirlew, who was shown on the series buying 70 newspapers in order to procure 70 copies of a coupon that made mustard 39 cents a jar in addition to other over-the-top penny pinching behavior, has been accused of coupon fraud.

Oprah sure loves pairing ’80s rock stars with the pop tarts of today. On yesterday’s “Woman Who Rock” episode, in addition to teaming up Avril Lavigne and Pat Benatar, she also had Miley Cyrus join Joan Jett for a medley of “Bad Reputation,” “Cherry Bomb,” and my favorite karaoke song ever, “I Hate Myself For Loving You.” Joan still looks and sounds amazing and, well, at least it kept Miley off the pole for a little while.
