Julia Roberts headline typo makes things real awkward for local paper

Kudos to the actress either way.Image: WireImage By Heather Dockray2018-12-10 22:46:56 UTC Spell check isn’t always your friend — more like a casual acquaintance. Just look at what happened to the Post-Journal‘s  stunning headline for an AP story they picked up this weekend about Julia Roberts.  It’s very possible the editor used spell check. Unfortunately for the paper, the function doesn’t always pick up on errors like this one: Clearly

Bootcut jeans are apparently making a comeback that nobody wants

By Amanda Luz Henning Santiago2018-12-03 21:16:29 UTC Welp, looks like bootcut jeans are back, according to a GQ article that claims as much. Though people have been quick to step in and renounce GQ’s latest style prediction, taking to Twitter to air their many frustrations with this alleged fashion revival. The biggest qualm is that example of “bootcut jeans” in the article’s photo is more akin to the bell bottoms

What your favorite home assistant command really says about you

By IZOD2018-11-12 22:11:46 UTC No matter what kind of home assistant or smart speaker you’re on a first name basis with, chances are you’ve reached co-dependent status with it — because no one wants to physically do things when you can yell at a piece of plastic to do it instead. Playing actual board games? It’s not 1984. Jotting down things for your to-do list? Uh, pens are practically an

The snake 'accidentally donated to Goodwill' has been reunited with its owner

By Morgan Sung2018-11-06 00:17:22 UTC Good news everyone: Toki the snake has been reunited with his family after he was accidentally donated to Goodwill. Whoops!  Toki the snake had been missing for six whole months before he eventually turned up at the local Goodwill in Fort Worth, Texas. His owner, Austin Pair, left him in his covered tank with plenty of food when they vacationed in Hawaii. When Pair came

Making my bed was the one chore I hated the most, but I’ve learned that it’s one of the best tools to tackle my depression.  Growing up, I wasn’t allowed to leave the house until I made

Piers Morgan gets dragged for going after men holding babies

By Morgan Sung2018-10-16 01:01:14 UTC Ugh.  I regret to inform you that Piers Morgan is at it again. The TV personality, known for his terrible hot takes, blatant misogyny, and strange obsession with Donald Trump took to Twitter to rail against … good fathers?  He posted a photo of Daniel Craig, who plays James Bond, holding his infant in an adorable spotted baby carrier. Implying that Craig was “emasculated” for

The 'Same Energy' meme oddly makes perfect sense

By Morgan Sung2018-10-16 00:05:20 UTC You know when you see two vastly different photos that just … give off the same energy? It’s been a year for describing things by their vibes, from BDE to horse girl energy. The latest: comparing images that inexplicably give off the same energy.  Whether comparing a K-Pop star with a deflated rubber chicken or putting Cara Delevingne’s royal wedding attire side-by-side with Pearl from

I turned off push notifications, and my introverted self has never felt better

I’ll admit it: I am that Trash Person who takes approximately three business days to text back.  At the time of writing this, I have eight unread texts, two untouched Facebook group chats with countless conversation threads that I don’t have

The before and after dorm meme makes fun of over the top makeovers

By Morgan Sung2018-08-27 21:57:56 UTC Seeing excessive dorm room makeovers fills me with a rage I can’t quite describe. Thankfully, there’s a meme that pokes fun at super extra before and after posts.  Everyone knows that college dorm rooms are sad, barren spaces for nightly existential crises, not glamorous Instagram-friendly #goals photo ops. After all, you’ll stay in a room for less than a year. Do you really plan on
