Here's a real gem thanks to the Onion : ''Renowned Hoo-Ha Doctor Wins Nobel Prize For Medical Advancements Down There.''The article is hilarious. It reads just like any conversation with someone who's uncomfortable with the real words for anything in the region of the, um, lady parts.I'll spare the potentially long-winded rant about the idea that womanly bits are dirty and we shouldn't talk about them. I'll also refrain from talking about feminine hygiene ... Read More

Fox and the Cougar

It seems like every female, and fashion-forward male, in New York is buzzing about Topshop's grand opening tomorrow. I even have some friends from CT coming to stay with me tonight so they can be there bright and early in the morning. All this TS frenzy is blowing my mind; I just don't get it.
