So, if the Facebook screenshot above is to be believed, someone decided to name their baby “Hashtag,” in honor of their obsession with Twitter (they’re also having some serious trouble spelling the word “weighs,” but that’s another story for another day). In honor of my constantly shrinking amount of faith in the world, I thought this news warranted a list of other internet terms that should absolutely not be used as human names. Hear me, expectant parents? You can cross the following words and phrases off your potential name list right now… Keep reading »

Dear Guy Who Spent 3.5 Hours Pronouncing The World’s Longest Word,

In second grade I gained a certain amount of notoriety on the playground for memorizing the spelling of “antidisestablishmentarianism,” which was, according to my teacher, the longest word in the world. Obviously Mrs. Shumaker was sorely mistaken, because the actual longest word in the world is the chemical name of a protein that contains 189,819 letters and takes nearly three and a half hours to pronounce in its entirety.

But you, sir, weren’t fazed by this lengthy locution. In fact, you filmed a video of yourself pronouncing the whole thing. And even as the potted plant next to you wilts tragically and your 5 o’clock shadow grows into a dark beard, you maintain your sexy Russian monotone.

After you catch your breath, would you like to read me a bedtime story?

"The Real World" Sucks
The show we once loved has hit an all-time low. Read More »

You may remember Puck from “The Real World San Francisco,” which aired way back in 1994, when the show didn’t take place in a hot tub and reality TV was still considered “real.” We always had really low hopes for the bike messaging, nose-picking, homophobic, anti-Semitic, hygiene hating, trash-talking bad boy of the season, which he ultimately fulfilled.

According to TMZ, Puck, real name David Rainey, has been locked up in a California prison for stalking a woman. While the details of the crime are still unclear, it appears that he pleaded no contest to stalking the same woman back in 2010, received two years in prison, got out early and then stalked her again, violating the restraining order. Great work, Puck!

Meanwhile, Rachel Campos, who made out with Puck during the season (eww!), ended up marrying “Road Rules: All Stars” alum Sean Duffy. They live in Wisconsin and have six kids. Good call, Rachel. [TMZ]
