Crystal Gail Mangum really knows how to stir up trouble. In case you don’t remember her, she is the stripper who falsely accused three Duke lacrosse players of rape back in 2006. Yeah … rape is not really the kind of thing to lie about. The case caused such a stir that the Durham District Attorney lost his job over it. Apparently Crystal didn’t learn her lesson, because she is in trouble with the law yet again. And this time it’s for the attempted murder of her boyfriend. Keep reading »

Last night, while watching the women’s halfpipe finals, we noticed a strange phenomenon: Each competitor had a distinct pre-run ritual. American Kelly Clark’s, however, stood out. Before each of her two tries, she put her iPod on a particular song and sang along to it. Kelly’s personal karaoke session helped her win the bronze metal. Can you figure out what song she’s singing along to? We did some sleuthing and found the tune. Keep reading to take a listen. Keep reading »
As you know, we’re obsessed with the new Old Spice commercial, so even though the video above is almost 20 minutes long, we watched this entire thing. In it, the guys at ad agency Wieden + Kennedy explain to Leo Laporte of ChiefTWit how the commercial was made. Can you believe it was filmed in one take with minimal use of special effects?!?!

Apparently, school dances have progressed from the days when the girls stood at one side of the gym and the boys stood on the other. Nope, today’s horny little teenagers are freaking and grinding and doing whatever they can at school dances to rub their privates together. How do I know about this problem? Well, I used to be a high school teacher, which meant I was also required to chaperone at least two school dances per year. I taught at an all-girls Catholic school, meaning that freaking was strictly forbidden. The worst part was that as a chaperone I was required to wear a T-shirt that said in big, black block lettering, “NO FREAKING ALLOWED,” and carry a flashlight to shine on teens getting down on the dance floor. This was extremely uncomfortable for me because: A) I’m actually not terribly anti-freaking as long as there is no nudity, harassment, or actual sex; B) I so didn’t want an image of my students getting jiggy on the dance floor burned into my memory; and C) since I looked so young at the time, in the dark most of the boys thought I was a teenage girl attending the dance stag. Once a young dude even grabbed me and started freaking with me when I shined the light on his gyrating pelvis. My female students just stood around chanting my name. Awkward and mortifying.
But it looks like other high schools are cracking down on bumping and grinding, too. And they’re getting pretty creative. Keep reading »
Lately, the supposedly friendly skies have gotten pretty hostile for passengers. Last month, Joan Rivers was detained due to her suspicious-looking passport, and over the weekend, director Kevin Smith got booted from a plane, supposedly for being too fat. Now, The New York Post reports that a New York City doctor was asked to get off a plane yesterday, apparently because he repeatedly asked flight attendants for water to give his 7-month pregnant wife during a two-hour delay on the runway. The flight attendants claimed that giving water to passengers before the plane is in the air goes “against corporate policy.” Rules like this were probably meant to keep passengers safe—but making a thirsty pregnant woman suffer seems like cruel and unusual punishment.

This morning, I woke up, and I thought, what do I need out of life? And then I got on the internet, and, lo’ and behold, there it was. I need a jockstrap maid, IMMEDIATELY. Honestly, my place could use a cleaning, and I can’t imagine a better candidate to do it than some hot dude wandering around in what amounts to a padded thong. Thankfully, the Jock Strap Maid service offers lazy women like me in 40 cities across the country the opportunity to have a scantily clad hottie scrub their floor while wearing next to nada. According to jockstrap-wearing maid Nate, who needed to make some extra cash when the real estate market went south, he cleans in his underwear at home, so why not make money dusting and mopping? I, for one, am all for it. [Advocate] Keep reading »
