What Is Gap Doing? No, Seriously. We Have No Idea.

When I was a child, my dream in life (after becoming a ballerina and/or a pastry chef) was to be a Gap model. It was my favorite store in the world.

Yeah, yeah, we all had a lot of cookies this past month and now maybe your clothes don't fit right. Or maybe they do. Or maybe you don't give a fuck?

The Honda Fit She's Should Never Have Existed And It's Already Dead

Let's be honest, car makers do have a nasty habit of marketing against their brand philosophies. None pisses me off more than the Honda Fit She's. A Honda "for women" women didn't want.
