Today, November 19, we celebrate both men and poop.
Recently, Gawker Media has moved into a new office space, a change that was long overdue. While our update in scenery comes with a bevy of positive changes, there’s one thing that we’re all having a hard time getting used to: multi-stall bathrooms.
A survey of 2,000 British couples aims to establish the secrets of a happy marriage, and there are a lot of obvious answers that are hardly "secrets": Trust, honesty and compromise; remembering birthdays and anniversaries; physical contact and cuddling. Duh. But then it gets a little weird.
A man was so impressed with the bathroom he found he made a video to commemorate it and share it with the rest of the world. Beautiful.
For some reason, we seem to have a problem understanding that feces are, indeed, smelly. We smell millions, possibly billions of dollars trying to hide away a fact of the human body in what I like to refer to as *pushes up glasses* *pulls down overhead screen* *whips out pointer thing* the Poop Industrial Complex. …
A note to men: Don't get too carried away with being the kind of dudebro who prides himself in never putting the seat down. It might just go very, very wrong for you one day.
I know, we thought we had it so good for so long, but as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. Or in this case, all that stuff you thought was OK to dump in the toilet, AKA the Get Rid of It Bowl, was, in fact, not OK after all. You know who you are.
This isn't to shit all over MFA students — they get quite enough of that already, both from snarky real-talkers in the Wall Street Journal weekend section and life — but perhaps the best an aspiring writer can hope for in this brave new media landscape tilled by Google adbots and fertilized with diploma paper is a gig…
"The moment this kid flushes, it's gonna be unbelievable," says the man Pull-Ups hired to act as a director to what they're calling "the biggest surprise potty party in history". I'm gonna go ahead and guess it's the only surprise potty party in history, but that quibble is for another day.
Much unlike many a magazine editor who recommends you buy all sorts of crap that they most likely got for free, your Jezebel staff doesn't get jack shit (other than books, unsolicited). And that's how it should be. But on our own time, in our personal lives, we still buy stuff. So this is Worth It, our recommendation…
The right to pee for free without being publicly humiliated is a basic human right that most of us probably take for granted. But Indian women have recently been forced to mobilize in hopes of putting an end to a sexist double standard: in many cities, men pee gratis while women have to pay to wait in line for a…
Recently I was sitting on the toilet peeing while my nearly 2-year old daughter was sitting in my lap playing with her stuffed koala bear, and I thought to myself, how did we get here? It could be worse, I suppose — we could be doing this as a performance art piece at a pop-up gallery in downtown L.A.
You probably already knew that when you flush the toilet with the lid open, a great big cloud of bacteria shoots up into the air like a mushroom cloud of poo germs. But did you know that if you leave the lid open even when the toilet is just hanging out and not being shat in, you're exposing all nearby surfaces to a…
"I want to be as ubiquitous as toilet paper," Rob Bobinski recently told me. He's not talking about himself — he's talking about YouGoGirl, an in-toilet product he invented for women who are afraid of others smelling their poop.
In this week's compilation of pop culture crap, Wanda Sykes creates a Sarah Palin pop-up book, Tyra makes another half-assed attempt to be Oprah, and a mom gets a job growing marijuana.
A woman in India recently gave birth inside a train bathroom, but almost lost her newborn when the baby slipped out of her body and straight through the toilet onto the tracks. Does this story sound familiar to anyone else?
I was recently at a fancy wedding, and within an hour, the bathroom was utter chaos. Because, bad citizens and sisters that we are, that's what we do. Here, a few misdemeanors we'd really like to excise from public bathrooms.
