Selfies, Politics and Poop: It's the Annual Peeps Diorama Contest

Easter is just around the corner, so you know what that means: peeps!

Take That Dot Off Your Forehead and Quit Trying to Make Bindis Happen

Another year, another Coachella, another trend mired in cultural appropriation. It's the true circle of life. You can almost watch the fixed gears of hipster logic grind: Now that Native American headdresses are offensive, we need to snatch some cool novelty from another culture. And so it came to be that bindis were a … » 4/16/14 4:45pm Wednesday 4:45pm

​Your Partner Knows When You're Faking That Orgasm

Welp, the jig is up. All the hard work you've poured into "studying" up and making your sexy moanin' and groanin' sound as authentic as possible is for nought. It turns out, people are much better at reading their sexual partners and their satisfaction than popular culture would have us believe. Not that that's a bad… » 4/15/14 3:15pm Tuesday 3:15pm

Hillary Clinton's Shoe Attacker Is Obsessed With the Aurora Shooter

Last week Alison Michelle Ernst was arrested for chucking her shoe at Hillary Clinton who was speaking at a Las Vegas event (and who flawlessly made a quip and continued unfazed).

KFC Is Helping Teens Ask Each Other to Prom with the Chicken Corsage

I have no idea what to make of this information. Apparently KFC, that place that sells the chicken fried in the style of Kentucky, has taken up the charitable cause of aiding awkward teens choose a partner to get gussied up with, eat dinner with, and then grind up on to crappy Top 40 hits. Man, viral marketing is… » 4/13/14 4:15pm Sunday 4:15pm

Breaking: Annoying ​Rich People Feel "Deep Affinity" for Africa

The New York Times ran a fairly exasperating piece about Matthew Mellon and Nicole Hanley Mellon's lifestyle-infused clothing line. (If you don't know these people, don't even worry about it—I'm not even sure if working class are supposed to know about these things.) Anyway this gruesome twosome plan to make their… » 4/13/14 2:30pm Sunday 2:30pm

There's a Chance Another Royal Baby Is On the Way

Don't freak out or anything, but people are going nuts over cheeky monkey Prince William dropping a hint that there might be another lil' royal soon. More accurately, they're going nuts because Prince William, who is still on that Royal Tour in Australia and New Zealand with Kate and George, said something that people… » 4/13/14 11:30am Sunday 11:30am
