That Time Ernest Hemingway Described His Ideal Bro Paradise

In between comparing dicks and boozing it up around Paris, Ernest Hemingway and F.

Crap Email From a Dude: '$30, and Then We're Square'

In theory, preemptive Facebook stalking should serve to help would-be blind daters avoid an awkward first encounter. In practice, it can entangle you in a web of awkwardness and obligation, and then give people you never care to speak to again a means to contact you — crappily. In today's edition of Crap Email from a… » 6/08/12 5:40pm 6/08/12 5:40pm

German Olympian Calls Out Crap Email Dude on Facebook

German high-jumper Ariane Friedrich (pictured here sporting an especially tough expression) does not fuck around, which is both why she's currently training for the 2012 Olympics and why she wasted no time posting the full name of a man who emailed her a "sexually explicit photo," probably of his gross balls. » 4/23/12 11:55pm 4/23/12 11:55pm

Crap Email from a Dude: The 'Dunbest' Pro-Abuse State Legislator

'I Am Sure in Your Mind That This Was Some Big Step for Girl Power'

Most of us have received a crap email or two in our day. You know the type — the ex who tries to make you feel bad about yourself, the forgotten hookup who's convinced he was the most important person in your life, the date who inelegantly demands a second chance.
