1. Pets in Costume!
Halloween is around the corner, which means it’s the perfect time of year to embarrass your dog or cat! Here are a few of our favorite costumes, and over on New York magazine, they’ve got some great shots of pups on parade in their finest.
New York band Atomic Tom had their instruments stolen. Fortunately, they know how to improvise.
3. Big, Fat Kisses
Marie Claire ran a controversial blog post this week called “Should ‘Fatties’ Get a Room? (Even on TV).”Writer Maura Kelly talks about how uncomfortable the sitcom Mike and Molly, about a couple who meets at Overeaters Anonymous, makes her. “I’d be grossed out,” she says, “if I had to watch two characters with rolls and rolls of fat kissing each other … because I’d be grossed out if I had to watch them doing anything.” Needless to say, the post stirred the pot, causing a huge backlash. Kelly wrote a response to the outcries, Jezebel pulled together some of the more poignant counterpoints to the argument, and a Facebook page was created to organize a Big Fat Kiss-In outside the offices of Hearst, Marie Claire’s publisher.
Ridiculous cuteness, no matter the size. Happy Friday!
