This Might Be the Worst Ad Placement Ever

You'd think that someone — ANYONE — would have caught this before this issue of the Anchorage Daily News hit the news stands on Sunday, but nope — a sticker advertising tree removal business TBF Services with the catchy slogan "Got Stumps?" really was placed over an article about a triathlete with a prosthetic leg. » 5/12/14 4:40pm 5/12/14 4:40pm

Selfies at Serious Places Is the Most Cringeworthy Tumblr of All Time

Kids. KIDS. Do not take selfies when you're visiting the sites of tragic, historically important events. Just don't do it.

How Many Seconds Can You Make It Into Today's Most Annoying Song?

Artist Tay Allyn describes her music as being "like Ke$ha without the sex, and Gaga without the avant garde" which apparently leaves us with "pop songs about the mundane issues you face in everyday life." Look forward to Allyn's future singles "What's Wrong with My Pee?! Oh, Yeah. I Ate Asparagus" and "Check Out This… » 7/17/13 6:30pm 7/17/13 6:30pm

What Happens When a Town Has Lots of Single Men and Not Many Women? Bad…

Shale oil formations in the pastures of North Dakota have been reining in men across the country with labor-intensive work and high paying salaries (some men make up to six figures), but the promise of work has had an interesting and unique side effect on the small, remote oil towns. Basically, there are too many men,… » 1/16/13 10:30am 1/16/13 10:30am

Today Show's Joke About Sexual Harassment Didn't Go So Well

The morning news is a strange animal. Every day, hosts of shows like Good Morning America and Today have to juggle a convoluted mix of hard news, entertainment and human interest stories all while seeming cheerful and likable, an act that's probably even more exhausting to perform than it is to watch. It makes sense… » 12/05/12 4:00pm 12/05/12 4:00pm

'Middle-Aged Woman Rapper Hip Hop Style' Is as Painful and Mesmerizing…

This woman Carol — I don't know if her name is really Carol, but it's probably Carol — labels her performance pretty succinctly at the top as "Middle-Aged Woman Rapper Hip Hop Style." That alone tells us enough, but keep this in mind: This entire performance was created and recorded following the invention of the… » 11/15/12 5:00pm 11/15/12 5:00pm

Who Will Save Her Soul? Jewel Is Singing for Walmart

Remember when Jewel was just this folksy Alaskan yodeler whose hands were small (she knew), but they were not yours — they were her own? When she was the girl who wrote terrible, punny titled books of poetry and talked about living out of a van? Well, that Jewel is gone. Meet New Jewel. She sings about Walmart. » 9/14/12 12:10pm 9/14/12 12:10pm

Hallelujah! Secret Keeper Girl Is Here to Save Your Slatternly Trollop…

Yo, have you seen your 8-12 year old daughter lately? The only reason I ask, the only reason I bring it up in so public a setting is that — well, I'm just gonna say it — your child is showing off parts of her child body that exclusively belong to her future adult husband and, frankly, she's coming off as a little… » 6/28/12 6:00pm 6/28/12 6:00pm

Why Wouldn't You Want to Float on a Giant Inflatable Panty Liner?

Remember those horrific pad floating stories that would show up in Seventeen or YM every summer? The ones where readers would submit their most embarrassing stories and, inevitably, some poor girl would write in about the time she had her period and foolishly wore a pad into the pool, only to have it detach and float… » 6/07/12 5:10pm 6/07/12 5:10pm

A Terrible Look Into the Sleazy, Rapey Modeling World of the 1980s

Let me confess something to you. I was a male model in the 1980s. I know what you're thinking— I look way too young for that. First of all thank you, that's very flattering. Second of all, it's crazy— the twists and turns life brings. Back when I was young, looking at my dad's GQs and dreaming of modeling in… » 3/20/12 7:50pm 3/20/12 7:50pm
