Where was this before Beyonce’s HBO special aired on Saturday? It would’ve definitely come in handy. Not that my store-bought frozen lemonade wasn’t tasty, but a homemade one from scratch would’ve no doubt impressed my guests. Especially if it was a recipe from Bey’s own grandmother.

Oh well, at least I can try it out for one of my upcoming gatherings this summer. Nothing goes down better on a hot summer day than some ice-cold lemonade, right? Check out the video recipe below.

2016-new-merriam-webster-words

Merriam-Webster is getting with the times. About 2,000 new entries were added to the company’s unabridged dictionary recently. Some are definitely very millennial targeted.

FOMO (fear of missing out), ICYMI (In Case You Missed It) and TMI (too much information) were some of the text-friendly acronyms that made the list. Speaking of your smart phone, “nomophobia“- fear of being without access to a working cell phone also made the cut. See what other notable words and phrases are now included.

Harriet Tubman To Be New Face Of US $20 Bill

In: Donovan, Random Reads

There were rumblings that the $10 bill was getting a makeover. But due to the popularity of Broadway musical, Hamilton, and its creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, winning the Pulitzer Prize this week, Alexander Hamilton will remain the face of the US $10 bill… for now.

Instead, it’s Andrew Jackson who’s being pushed aside. The United States Treasury Department announced Harriet Tubman will replace the seventh president on a new $20 note. It’s quite fitting that Tubman, an African-American who was instrumental freeing slaves via the Underground Railroad, kicks Jackson, who owned hundreds of slaves, to the curb.

This is absolutely ridiculous and that’s exactly why it’s so hilarious.

Donald Trump is a lightning rod for controversy given all his politically incorrect comments and opinions. He’s pretty much a real life ‘mean girl.’ But how would the 69-year-old fare against the Plastics? Let’s just say, Regina George has finally met her match.

Check out the parody by The Crazy Gorilla below. If you love Mean Girls, it’s a definite must-watch. He did a fantastic job of integrating The Donald’s rhetoric into classic scenes from the teen flick.

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I thought I’d rotate up this Marry, F*ck, Bitch Slap post featuring a trio of hot Irish studs originally posted back in 2012. It was long before people were lusting over Jamie Dornan in Fifty Shades of Grey. #justsaying

With a long list of sexy men hailing from Ireland including Cillian Murphy, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Daniel Day-Lewis, Pierce Brosnan and Stuart Townsend to name a few, narrowing it down to just three proved very difficult. There’s something very attractive about that charming Irish rogue these men possess.

In the end, I chose Colin Farrell, Michael Fassbender and Jamie Dornan to represent the rolling hills of Ireland. I’m sure you won’t complain about my choices. They’re all sex symbols and worth lusting after. Get to know the men in more detail below.

You know how the game works. Pick one to marry and live in wedded bliss with, and another to have a hot passionate one night stand with, while the other is the subject of your bitch slapping. Happy choosing everyone.

It’s recently come to my attention that it’s been ages since I shared a “Chloe” clip. Shame on me. I used to be obsessed with Drew Droege’s hilarious videos impersonating Ms. Sevigny. His pronunciations always cracked me up.

Droege recently uploaded a clip educating the world about the abomination that is litter. The pseudo PSA is ridiculous but that’s what makes it amazing. I also included a vintage clip from Drew about the month of March. Check both clips out below.

barbie-day

On March 9, 1959, Ruth Handler introduced the iconic doll at the American International Toy Fair in New York. Ever since then, the day has been used as the toy’s official birthday. Happy Barbie Day everyone.

Over the years, Barbie has been criticized for promoting an unrealistic idea of body image to young girls. Just a few weeks ago, Mattel introduced four body types for the first time: original, tall, petite and curvy. It’s just the latest evolution of the doll which has tried to reflect the changing with the times.

In honor of Barbie Day, Entertainment Weekly has selected a few of the celebrity Barbies issued throughout the years. I’ve picked my favorite ten from their batch. Check them out below. Just in case you couldn’t do the math, Barbie is 57-years-old today.

I would assume returning back to normal life after The Bachelorette is a shock to the system. Obviously, walking around without cameras following your every move would be a nice change, but I would assume there are letdowns as well.

Season 11 Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe and her fiance Shawn Booth show Funny or Die five ways that dating on the show differs from real life. From having dinner to simply walking into a room, life in front of the cameras is certainly different off. Check out the clip below.
