Guinness beer fans the flames of homophobia
with its new St. Patrick’s Day commercial with a lesson on how men can hug other men without looking … gay
. (Because arching your butt backwards in an A-frame hug doesn’t draw more attention to it at all!) I know this commercial is a “joke” as far as 12-year-old-boy-humor is concerned. Alas, giving men a hard time for showing affection because they may look gay is neither funny nor original.

Since you guys were really feeling the news that “Clarissa Explains It All” is coming back to TeenNick, I thought I’d share this. Did you know that Melissa Joan Hart filmed a pilot for a show called “Clarissa Now” in 1995? The concept was that Clarissa moved to New York to start an internship at a newspaper—which sounds oddly like my life. Too bad the show doesn’t look so good. Clarissa in black with a simple bob? No way. And that more sophisticated version of the theme song? No thanks.
Watch the rest of the show after the jump. Keep reading »

Meet Norman, a 20-month-old Briard (although Julie says he looks like a Muppet) from Canton, Georgia. While Norman likes standard puppy activities like fetch, eating trash, and barking at shadows, his favorite way to pass the time is by riding his scooter. Above, Norman in action. I clearly need to be encouraging Lucca to be more ambitious. [Dlisted
