YouTube is stuffed to the gills with makeup tutorials, but they're all sort of the same, aren't they? Usually, they feature makeup. Not so with Lucy Cottrell's makeup tutorial satire, which reveals a great secret for looking 10 years younger: smear your face with random crap and cry until people are convinced you're… »
Anyone who's ever lived under the same roof with a teenaged boy is familiar with some of the more...awkward facets of that experience. Puberty's hard on everyone, even the bystanders. Which is perhaps why this Amazon review of Kleenex tissues—titled "a mother's struggle"—is currently going viral on Twitter. »
The New Zealand Police take sexual violence very seriously, and so we are disturbed by reports of a gang of young Auckland men stupefying and raping girls and young women.

Just in time for summer wedding/funeral/hot-dog-eating-contest/hot-dog-themed funeral/funeral-themed wedding season, our gal Beyonce has "curated" a collection of dresses and accessories over at Rent the Runway.

Finally, the lame "scandalized yet?" tone of CBS's sitcom sex jokes gets a send-up from the Upright Citizens Brigade's Leila Cohan-Miccio and Brandon Lisy.

Rachel Maddow has had an "aha" moment which is sort of hilarious but is also sort of scary.
