It’s the end of an era. Hasbro has officially retired the iron token from Monopoly.
Back in January, the toy company asked fans to cast their vote on which of the classic board game’s pieces to save from the chopping block. Not surprisingly, the iron received the fewest votes. I’m pretty sure the thimble was in the running as well. I can’t even remember a time when I chose either of those tokens when playing the game.
At the same time, Hasbro asked voters to pick a replacement for the retired game piece. The choices were a cat, guitar, helicopter, robot and diamond ring. Personally, I was rooting for the robot. Find out which piece beat out the competition below.
Forget boxers or briefs, this is the age-old question. The folks over at BuzzFeed tackles this debate by conducting a seven-round test. They enlisted, possibly an intern, to get really drunk one night and really high on another. From catching balls, drawing a picture, exercising or dancing, this poor sap clumsily executes each task. The most remarkable comparison is when he’s required to assemble Lego pieces. The result is rather outstanding. Watch the video below to see which behavior-altering substance is more conducive to being functional.
Canadian export, Justin Bieber has done a lot of things that have rubbed people the wrong way in the past year. He’s at the point in his life where he’s no longer a boy while at the same time, the fame is getting to his head. He doesn’t seem as genuine and down to earth as he once did and he comes across as very entitled and well… douchie.
In a new video for a web series called “Senior Citizens React,” a handful of elders watch clips of some of the inappropriate or annoying things Justin Bieber has done this year and we get to see their reactions and their take on the Bieber. One woman says, “I need to call his mother,” while another says, “his attempts to be gangsta with street cred is an epic failure.” LOL!
Other Senior Citizens React videos include reactions of The Lonely Island Boys, Twerking, Eye Ball Licking, “Gangnam Style,” and more. Check out this latest video below.
You don’t see Maybelline taking this approach to sell mascara. I guess they’re just born with it ;) Some companies though, need to rely on d-list celebrity peen to move inventory.
Benefit Cosmetics tapped a few hunky men including a couple of reality stars known for their huge packages to push their product. The women in the clip salivate on what you think is each guy’s healthy bulge, but in reality it’s what their stuffing in their crotches that have the ladies excited. That’s right, mascara apparently works great to pad your bulge if needed. Check out the clip below which features Jersey Shore‘s Vinny Guadagnino, Simon Rex (remember his porn video?) and other tasty looking men.
Well, another pride season has come and gone, which means the hot boys of summer who seemed to have leaped from the bushes all tanned and buff to populate the streets will slither back into the undergrowth. You nursed your hangover at your desk all week and wished life could go on being a Speedo pool party forever. And all over the city, testicles will be filling back out and producing normal levels of sperm, at least until this time next year.
Yes, no pride season is complete without the perennial steroid rant, brought to you this time by somebody who seriously had no clue until like three weeks ago that literally everyone was on the juice.
It began when I made an offhand joke to someone I had recently started dating about how it would be nice to put on more muscle with minimal effort but no ball shrinkage, backne or looking like an aubergine.
He responded cagily about not judging other people’s choices.
“Are you defending steroid use to me?” I asked in disbelief.
Yesterday’s post about Middle Child’s Day proved surprisingly popular, I simply had to share another random holiday. August 13 is the day to celebrate left handed people. Now only if there’s a special day for left handed middle children :) I’m sure one probably exists. For those who have sinistrophobia (fear of left-handedness or things on the left side), today is probably the day you should stay indoors.
Approximately 10 percent of the population is left handed. Being in the minority, they’re often left out in the cold. Have you ever seen left-handed desks in schools? Imagine their frustration using right-handed scissors. With all that in mind, Left Hander’s Day was designated to promote consideration for such individuals and raise awareness. For random scientific facts about left handers, click here.
There truly is a holiday for everything. For all you middle children out there, today is your special day. Let’s face it. The oldest (thank God I’m one) gets all the praise as the leader, while the youngest one gets the attention for being the baby. The middle child… nada, zip, zilch. With no special “role,” the middle kid often gets lost in the shuffle.
Probably the most well-known television character to suffer from middle child syndrome is Jan Brady. Remember her infamous quote, “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia.” For all you Jan Bradys out there, August 12 is your day to celebrate your birth order and get some recognition.
Are you a middle child? Who’s your favorite middle child television character? Sound off below.
When’s the last time you did something nice for someone randomly? Not for someone’s birthday or for someone you have a crush on, we’re talking completely random, like buying coffee for the person behind you at Starbucks.
“You can’t change the world in one day but you CAN change someone’s world.” That’s the motto for #GetRAOKT, (pronounced like Get ROCKED) which is an acronym for the “Random Acts Of Kindness Tour.” This September 1st Jessica Schafer and myself will be setting out on a year long adventure around North America with one goal in mind, perform as many random acts of kindness as we can and inspire a new generation of people to get involved in their communities whether it’s a small or large amount. It only makes sense since I’m the “Do-Good” one of the cast here at Homorazzi. We decided 3 months ago that it was time to make a change and do something that we felt would make a difference and thus #GetRAOKT was born and we’ve been saving ever since.
North America tends to be a place that easily gets lost in the “me” syndrome. Have you ever noticed how it makes you feel way better when focusing on the “we” instead of “me” by making someone’s day a little brighter? From volunteering at shelters, cleaning up after natural disasters and writing thank you letters for social workers to taking underprivileged families to a theme park for the day, we’re going to try and do it all. Couch surfing and car sharing every inch of the way. Speaking of which, if you’re interested in having 2 awesome house guests for a few days let us know!
