It looked for a minute there like Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) had gone so far into the deep end of offensive ignorance that the left and right could come together in outrage. But then, of course, Twitter brought to light the sad truth that not everyone was flabbergasted when the Senate nominee claimed that it's impossible for women to get pregnant from "legitimate rape" (whatever that means).
Thankfully, many of the #IStandWithAkin tweets were sarcastic:But some ... Read More

In the latest Twitter-sphere news, BUST’s Senior Editor Molly Simms tweeted yesterday, “I want a talk show called “Channing Vs. Channing,” in which Carol Channing & Channing Tatum discuss pop culture and current events.” Shortly after, fashion blogger @GrassettaGillie responded with this gem of a photo:For those who are unfamiliar, Carol Channing is a long-time singer, actress, and comedian, best known for her roles on Broadway. ...

As with Jordan Catalano’s group, "The Frozen Embryos" on the 90s TV show, My So-Called Life, band names don’t necessarily have to make sense. Especially when you’re a teenager-- they’re just another way to express bottled-up angst.
Although I could stare at pictures of early Mick Jagger all day, I'm less excited by band members than by the bands' names themselves. I just love coming up with names for fictional bands that will likely ... Read More

Some of my biggest Facebook pet peeves include, but are not limited to, the following: incessant complaining, unnecessary relationship updates (wait, aren't all relationships inherently complicated? Exactly why is yours so special and beyond my comprehending?), and minute-to-minute pregnancy progress reports. People who are a part of these annoying Facebook phenomena should be banned from the internet. Then again, I'm sure there are a few people on my friends list ... Read More

It's the moment we've all been waiting for.
Last week we told you how spectacular she is at giving presents, but this week she's taken my excitement level from a 4.5 to an 11. Betty White, that sassy spitfire who's enjoying a second wave of fame (maybe third? fourth? fifth at this point?), has joined Twitter. Let the celebrations commence!Two hours after joining, she was already nearing 40,000 followers. And, in true Betty White fashion, her third Tweet ... Read More

Iconic Brit jewelers (and longtime BUST favorites), Tatty Devine have sparked a huge response on Twitter in the last 24 hours after posting these pictures on their blog highlighting the dubious similarities between some of their classic designs and those currently on sale at UK high street chain, Claires Accessories.
Coming at already challenging times for all UK retailers, these cheaper mass produced versions pose a real threat to ... Read More

So this claims to be the official twitter feed of Cat Fancy Magazine. It takes about .03 seconds to realize this is a hilarious prank. Some intern at Cat Fancy is probably saying, "I told you we needed a twitter."
Here are screenshots of some of my faves. But seriously, it's all pitch purrfect!
This might even trump the cat who ran onto the field during Liverpool vs. Tottenham, my favorite cat-related internet story of the week.
You need to a ... Read More

I just walked to Qdoba in the rain. Felicity Aston just skied across Antarctica alone.
Aston, a 33 year-old British explorer, is the first person to make a solo ski trip across the icy continent; her journey began 59 days-- and over 1,000 miles-- ago. She documented the trip on Twitter and her blog, and just reading her Tweets takes my breath away and makes me want to put another pair of socks on. She mentions sewing in extreme temperatures, crying ... Read More

“Shit Girls Say,” a short comedy vid by Kyle Humphrey & Graydon Sheppard, is a little ridiculous, mildly insulting, completely hilarious, and terrifyingly accurate. The montage of--you guessed it--"shit girls say," includes things we *may* or may not have uttered within the last month ("What's wrong with my computer?" and "Twinsies!" come to mind). Cringe if you want, but how many times have you wondered aloud if you unplugged the hair straightener ... Read More

A superhero has been unmasked! Namely, the patriarchy-smashing Twitter superhero of feminism, the Feminist Hulk (@feministhulk)! In an interview with Ms. Magazine, the Feminist Hulk came out as 28-year-old Jessica Lawson. Lawson is a new mother as well as a Ph.D English Lit candidate at the University of Iowa. Lawson describes herself as a “white, vegan, queer, woman-identified female.” She released the Feminist ... Read More
