Am I Right Ladies? Forget the Glass Ceiling, Have a Glass of Milk!

Am I Right Ladies? Forget the Glass Ceiling, Have a Glass of Milk!

It comes from us and it keeps us from becoming “not us.” That’s right, ladies, when it comes to Premenstrual Syndrome, milk does a body of good for the men in our lives who have to put up with it. Girls, girls, girls – we’re so crazy sometimes we don’t even realize the struggles of those around us. Forget the sharp cramps that feel like a tiny demon is inside of you poking your insides with an ice pick or the pervasive, inexplicably sudden feeling of hopeless, PMS affects men tenfold more than it does us. If it didn’t, then why would Got Milk? sponsor a rally in Los Angeles for PMS awareness? More »

Questionable Choices: Helena Bonham Carter in a Marc Jacobs Ad

Questionable Choices: Helena Bonham Carter in a Marc Jacobs Ad

Everyone’s favorite Hollywood eccentric Helena Bonham Carter landed the coveted gig as model in this season’s Marc Jacobs print campaign. Most of the time, the actresses who do modeling work are people like Blake Lively or Kate Hudson, who are conventionally beautiful and skinny. So more power to Helena, whose homeless-lady-chic clothes and no-holds-barred personality make her a thousand times more interesting to look at. More »

Video: What Is Going On In This Honda Commercial?

Video: What Is Going On In This Honda Commercial?

I may be coming a little late to this party, as the commercial in question was apparently loaded to Honda’s YouTube channel on April 20, but I have just seen said commercial for the first time, and honestly, I can’t quite figure out what’s going on. It looks like the beginning of a joke– one of the “A [blank], a [blank], and a [blank] walk into a bar” variety– and yet… More »

Am I Right Ladies? Dust Off Your Daddy Issues

Am I Right Ladies? Dust Off Your Daddy Issues

But we just recovered from Mother’s Day, amirightladies? Well, the Gregorian calendar says tough luck toots, tell it to someone who cares. Spoken like a true man, Greg(orian). But what do we do when life hands us lemons? We make lemontinis and get wasted with our girlfriends! Or our cats. So suck up the hardship and suck in your stomachs, it’s time to honor the man singly responsible for all our terrible relationships.

And what better way to get gift ideas for dear old dad than by looking at some dear old ads? More »

Am I Right Ladies? Miracle Whip It Good

Am I Right Ladies? Miracle Whip It Good

Somebody needs to tell the good people of Miracle Whip to r-e-l-a-x. I mean it’s almost like they need to get laid more than I do, and I think we all know that it’s been years. Seriously, what tube top do I have to squeeze into to get a man to just eye-f**k me, amirightladies? But this whole “we won’t tone it down, you can’t handle the truth, we’re here, we’re schmear, get used to it” schtick is just exhausting. You aren’t mayo, you aren’t butter, you aren’t bacon fat. So when it comes to the light salad dressing that is Miracle Whip, I WILL put baby in the corner. At least until I’m really desperate. Or as I like to call it: Thursdays. More »

Am I Right Ladies? You’re My Doll, Midol

Am I Right Ladies? You're My Doll, Midol

Let’s face it girls, menstrual cramps are the worst. I’m talking worse than running out of your last box of Thin Mints. And you had a stash of 20 cases. That’s ripping-pictures-of-your-cat-off-your-bedroom-wall bad! While there may not be a cure for Girl Scout cookie withdrawal (I’m looking at you Merck), we can count ourselves lucky that the world has given us Midol for when being a woman is an ugly business. Then again, when is it not, amirightladies? Just kidding. Hormones, ugh. More »

Am I Right Ladies? A Fancy Feast of Love

If you love your cat so much, why don’t you marry it? Let’s face it single girls, we’ve all seriously considered this question at one lonely moment or other. I actually once tried to file for a marriage license at the courthouse, but couldn’t even get past security. I guess this right wing world we live in can’t resist putting a leash on love, amirightladies? More »

Am I Right Ladies? The Sweet Smell of Celebrity

Am I Right Ladies? The Sweet Smell of Celebrity

I’ve always said if the perfume fits, WEAR IT, amirightladies? Okay, I’ve never said that. But what I have said numerous times to no one in particular (because no one is listening) is that the one thing I love more than pretending I’m a celebrity is smelling like one. Thank God some of the most fabulous famous womyn out there make it easy to bathe in their scent. Let’s honor the memory of the celebrity perfume original gangstress, Elizabeth Taylor, and chat about some of the best fragrances out there. Hiding the smell of sadness is wrong then please don’t tell me otherwise, amirightladies? More »

Am I Right Ladies? Lean Cuisine on Me

Am I Right Ladies? Lean Cuisine on Me

If you’re anything like me, you only take dinners alone one way: frozen. And when it comes to learning how to cook for myself, well I never got farther than the start button on my microwave. But luckily I found my very own personal chef years ago. My first choice for the job was a stay-at-home hunk who always put extra cheese on my daily personal pizza, but Lean Cuisine fit the bill just fine. Cheap, easy and loaded with sodium – beat that, dream man. So color me heartbroken when I heard Lean Cuisine was recalling 10,000 Spaghetti Meatball entrée dinners due to possible hard, red plastic found in the food. Hey, I’ve swallowed worse in my day – amirightladies? More »
