Other JCPenney Shirts That Reinforce Gender Stereotypes


h1 Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Jezebel posted a link to a sweatshirt being sold at JCPenney which has the phrase “I’m too pretty to do HOMEWORK, so my brother has to do it for me” scrawled across it scientifically idiotic handwriting. Quite the message to send to our little ones: Pretty little girls are too stupid to do their own homework.

We thought there was no way JCPenney could top this negative stereotype, until we started digging around on their website.

And you won’t believe what we saw. BWE’s very own Einstein (no sarcasm intended) Pete Schultz came across these examples. Pete even points out another unfair nuance of the sweatshirt at right: “All the extra homework it’s creating for brothers.”

Here Are Other JCPenney Shirts That Reinforce Gender Stereotypes. It is safe to say things are about to get much Photoshoppier worse.

Ladies And Gentlemen, My Future Husband


h1 Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

This photo of someone’s biology professor named Dr. Allred appeared over on Reddit, and the second I saw it, I flung my laptop out my front door DJ Jazzy Jeff style and Back to the Future’d myself to Kleinfeld’s to look for my gown. That’s because this man, this genteel man wearing a tie with a cat wearing a smaller tie on it, he is my match.

And you guys…

HE’S A DOCTOR!

Calling mother and the NY Times.

A STORY TOLD IN GIF: Leonardo DiCaprio Meets A Koala


h1 Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Leonardo DiCaprio and new blond S1M0NE girlfriend Blake Lively traveled down to Australia to visit the Featherdale Wildlife Park and the various adorable animals there. They saw a baby dingo named Nala (“Does it eat itself?” – Serry Jeinfeld), a nameless crocodile, a baby wombat, and a python named Cuddles.

But most importantly, he met a little Koala named Austin. Splash posted a photo of Austin post Leo-sighting, and it goes without saying that what this koala has seen cannot be unseen. Because there is no video footage of this historic meeting, I’ve gone ahead and tried to create the moment with the following GIF, which I like to call “When Leo Met Austin.”

Thus concluding probably one of the most horrendous GIFs to ever be created. Let’s be honest: I’m just excited because I finally learned how to open up GIFs on my work laptop. THE WORLD IS MY OYSTER NOW.

15 Pictures Of LeAnn Rimes In A Bikini, The Only Thing She Owns


h1 Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

All Leann Rimes wears now are bikinis. All the time. When’s the last time you saw a picture of Leann Rimes not wearing a bikini?

The weirdest part of all this is that …isn’t Leann Rimes a country singer? Yes, she became a tabloid fixture when she and her husband, Eddie Cibrian, cheated on their spouses with one another before getting hitched.  However, if you’ll remember, she was only thirteen when her album, Blue, went number one and people were majorly impressed with this young talent. And since then, she’s collected Grammys, ACM’s, and CMA’s, and has sold over 35 million albums. Amazing.

But, again, with the bikinis! It’s all she wears and you’d think that for someone who is constantly defending herself against allegations of being “too skinny” (thank you for your genuine concern, Entertainment Tonight!), she might want to cool it with all the posting self-portraits of herself in teeny weeny bikinis onto her Twitter.

8 Videos Of Dogs Locked In A Delicious Peanut Butter Prison


h1 Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Space travel received a devastating blow last month when NASA was forced to end their shuttle program due to budget cuts. But don’t tell the following 8 dogs wearing plastic food jugs on their heads about it, because they still have big dreams. Dreams of an infinite landscape where anything is possible. Dreams of weightlessness and spacesuits and zero gravity ass-licking. Dreams of making history.

Dreams they would all gladly give up in a heartbeat to reach that one, final smear of peanut butter at the bottom of the jar.

Here are 8 eager dogs who have gotten their heads stuck in peanut butter jars.* (*Or, in some rare occasions, other types of food jugs.)

Don’t Forget: Maya Rudolph Is An Awesome Singer!


h1 Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

You may have forgotten, but Maya Rudolph — daughter of iconic singer Minnie Riperton — was in a band called The Rentals before she was HILARZ on Saturday Night Live and, consequently, in movies like Idiocracy and something called Bridesmaids? (No idea.)

Anyway, footage has been unearthed from last weekend, when Maya showed up at a that dog. concert (REMEMBER THE 90′S?) with her band, Princess, which is a PRINCE COVER BAND. I know. I know!

And she didn’t even take off her trench coat. Now that’s a badass b*tch right there!
