The Resurrected Twinkie Returns From The Netherworld With Twice The Otherworldly Shelf Life

I’m horrified and slightly intrigued. They already had an unnatural shelf life and were resurrected from the dead. We should call them Lazarus Cakes instead.

gr0ss. I am still cringing and I only read two of them.

thanks for the submission. I think we need to push back or something. that’s just… wrong on so many levels.

This article

I don’t get this constant policing of women’s appearance. Stop. It. You look ridiculous. I couldn’t get past 10. 

This is not helping our relationship with the opposite sex. This does not help at all. I hate these fucking magazines. 

I am reblogging this partially for the badass GIFs.

Gross. My husband encourages me to take care of myself, not hate myself. These are ten ways to hate your girlfriend (or wife) while inspiring bonus self-hate in her.

Amish Sexter Sought Buggy Sex With Girl, 12

An Amish man who sent hundreds of sexually charged text messages to a 12-year-old girl was arrested last week when he drove a horse and buggy to an Indiana restaurant where he had arranged a rendezvous with the child, according to police.

Nabbed in an undercover sting, Willard Yoder, 21, is facing four felony counts for allegedly soliciting sex from the minor. Yoder, pictured in the mug shot at right, is free on $20,000 bond.

In one text, Yoder told the girl that, “the proposed sex act would happen inside the buggy,” according to a Connersville Police Department report.

Wow. I thought this sounded like an SNL skit or something - A friend posted it on another’s wall with no link. I guess it did.

First off, the author creates a main character which is an empty shell. Her appearance isn’t described in detail; that way, any female can slip into it and easily fantasize about being this person. I read 400 pages of that book and barely had any idea of what the main character looked like; as far as I was concerned she was a giant Lego brick. Appearance aside, her personality is portrayed as insecure, fumbling, and awkward - a combination anyone who ever went through puberty can relate to. By creating this “empty shell,” the character becomes less of a person and more of something a female reader can put on and wear. Because I forgot her name (I think it was Barbara or Brando or something like that), I’m going to refer to her as “Pants” from here on out.

Armageddon’s Coming - Better Get to Costco! 
While we still have soon-to-be-worthless paper money, you can be damn sure those eagerly awaiting Armageddon are going to try to get the best bargain possible. Which is why Costco is now offering a year’s worth of dehydrated food for only $800.

Whut?

So, uh, Shelf Reliance? I see what you did there. Glenn Beck’s been touting magic beans seeds on his show which are the most valuable thing in a crisis.

Love bites: Teens, stop sucking each other's blood or you're grounded!

Bizarre teen trends have been horrifying parents for generations, but health officials are warning that a vampire-inspired biting fad could be dangerous, not to mention disgusting.

Teenagers obsessed with the “Twilight” vampire saga, or those simply fascinated with fangs, reportedly have been biting each other - hard – and then licking or sucking the blood.

“These are kids who think they are real vampires,” said Dr. Orly Avitzur, the medical advisor to Consumers Union, the agency that publishes Consumer Reports magazine.

Gross. Just don’t do this.
