No, It Is Certainly Not Time to Stop Eating Fucking Salad

Ranch dressing is dumb. Croutons are bad mojo. Shredded cheddar cheese is offensive. A coupla barely ripe tomato wedges are a travesty. Shaved carrots are a slap in the face.

Watch Danica Patrick Get Mad And Get Even With Dale Earnhardt Jr.

After getting tapped from behind by Dale Earnhardt Jr. at Kentucky Speedway last night and radioing over an expletive-laden rant, Danica Patrick tapped him back as they entered pit lane.

Fuck Your Air Conditioner, Ceiling Fans Forever

It’s a cool 60 degrees in New York City right now, but in a few weeks time, we—along with the rest of the U.S.—will likely be experiencing the dead heat of summer.

Quit Asking Blythe Danner About Gwyneth Paltrow

Blythe Danner is currently starring in an indie drama called I’ll See You In My Dreams.

Cheap Wine Sucks: A Manifesto

While Mother Jones certainly has the right to get out from under their image as the resting place of old potatoes on your weirdest uncle’s kitchen table, it is interesting to see that one of the ways they’re moving toward A New Tomorrow is by aggregating a video called EXPENSIVE WINE IS FOR SUCKERS put together by the… » 6/03/15 2:15pm 6/03/15 2:15pm

Pooping Is Gross and So Are These Quilted Northern Commercials

I understand that everybody poops. I am fully aware that it’s a biological necessity. I will even admit that there’s something sort of beautiful and miraculous about having a body that, after evolving for millions of years, has figured out how to process food into fuel as well as rid itself of the remaining waste.

That due to some combination of threatening the producers with a kitchen knife and Shibbolethian fecal rituals, he had managed to convince them that he knew how to cook a piece of… » 4/08/15 12:00pm 4/08/15 12:00pm

Hey, Get A Load Of This Evil Doctor

The Washington Post has a profile today of Dr. Jack Wolfson, an Arizona cardiologist and holistic medicine, uh, doer or whatever, who's made something of a name for himself by providing a flimsy, fraudulent rime of expertish cover to the reprehensible, morally criminal anti-vaccination crowd in the U.S. It's really… » 1/30/15 6:27pm 1/30/15 6:27pm

Dear Faceless Overcharged Everywoman: Did you know you are still paying as much as 30 cents more per stick of deodorant than a man "version" for no good reason, when, if anything, a dude's deodorant needs more of the anti-pit stink stuff in it?
