  • Tennessee's "Don't Say Gay" Bill Gets Worse

    Ever since Tennessee's widely-mocked "Don't Say Gay" bill died in the State House of Representatives, bill sponsor Senator Stacey Campfield has been busy drafting a new version that is "completely different" and "gets rid of some of the old perceptions" about the legislation.

    Among the "old perceptions" that have been completely debunked by the new draft is the idea that Campfield couldn't possibly come up with anything dumber than his original proposal. How wrong we were to doubt.

  • Sexy Ladies Needed for Insider Trading Scheme

    Think there aren't enough jobs for recent college grads In These Tough Economic Times? Think again. Some intrepid soul has taken to to prove naysayers wrong with the ad above.

    If you are a "beautiful, sophisticated" lady with a "sense of adventure," this totally above-board professional is willing to hire you to seduce businessmen in hopes of "extracting key pieces of information." Thanks, Obama!

    I know "Do they offer a matching 401(k) plan?" is every potential applicant's first question, because thinking about the future is important when facing a potential prison term. Sadly, there's no mention of benefits. But CNBC's John Carney does lay out some of the legal pitfalls with becoming a secret sex agent:

  • The Best, Or Maybe It Is the Worst, of D.C. Inauguration Craigslist

    Inauguration ball date needed
    I want to go to an innauguration ball at the La'Plaza hotel. The ticket is like 85-100 bucks, the hotel room is like 250.00. I would like to dress up and go with a gentlemen that wants to go out with a classy, witty, woman to this event. I would like to get dressed up, meet you, dance and drink all night and then retire to the hotel room. I guarantee you will have a great time. I am not saying that sex is involved.

    Not only is she not saying sex is involved, this was listed under "Strictly Platonic," so there you have it. Strictly platonic retiring to the hotel room. Maybe she means actual retirement. Maybe this is an innovative lobbying effort from the AARP.

  • Are Bikini Waxes Wiping Out Pubic Lice?

    It's bad enough that 2012 was America's hottest year on record, and that our crush on hydrofracking may be poisoning the nation's watersheds. Now the Obama administration is facing a new "environmental disaster" in the making:

    "Pubic grooming has led to a severe depletion of crab louse populations," said Ian F. Burgess, a medical entomologist with Insect Research & Development Ltd. in Cambridge, England. "Add to that other aspects of body hair depilation, and you can see an environmental disaster in the making for this species." [...]

    "We put the flag out, so to speak, if we see a case of pubic lice nowadays," [sexual health expert Janet] Wilson said in an e-mailed response to questions. "The 'habitat destruction' of the pubic lice is increasing and they are becoming an endangered species."

    The funny thing about this reporting that claims "Brazilian Bikini Waxes Make Crab Lice Endangered Species" is that there's no hard evidence that it's actually happening. We have some data on the increasing popularity of waxing in the United States and Australia, and some anecdotes about a decline in the number of crab lice reports at local health clinics, but that's not nearly enough to proclaim Brazilians a public health miracle, nor to bring pubic lice to the attention of the EPA.

    So let's not get carried away, boys and girls. Pubic grooming should always be a matter of personal preference, or else our civilization will be in deep trouble when some "health expert" decides that vajazzling cures HPV.
