stretch-mark supper club

While I think it’s great for the Strip Tease Artitsts Australia union (no, I am not making that up) to win the right to lunch breaks, overtime, and leave, one of the quotes from the union spokeswoman Mystical Melody (again, I’m not making that up) gave me pause. “The majority of workers in the industry […]

pocket protector

I’m not understanding the need for a product like this. I can’t recall ever experiencing problems from the rubbing and/or chafing mentioned, even while running, so I’m definitely not their target market. Maybe it’s the weather in the UK.

unclear on the concept

So, I came across a quote today which left me pretty much speechless. I know some people just don’t get it, and I shouldn’t be surprised when I hear about them (especially when they’re in the Southern U.S.). A white kid at a high school wore a shirt with a picture of a couple black […]
