Sanitary towel and tampon ads don’t exactly portray periods in the most realistic way. If it’s not strange-looking blue liquid being poured on pads, it’s women jumping around splashing each other for reasons that remain unknown to us.  Bodyform’s latest ad shows something refreshingly different. An actual period.  The ad opens with red liquid being poured onto a pad. Not a drop of blue dye in sight! It also shows a closeup of a woman’s thighs in a shower, with menstrual blood trickling down the inside of her leg—a sight that’s familiar to anyone who has periods. The ad is […]

On Oct. 7, for one day only, McDonald’s will let all comers sample a bit of that sweet, sweet Szechuan sauce. The Holy Grail of Mickey D’s condiments was a punchline way back in April, when Rick & Morty‘s Season 3 premiere streamed for just 48 hours, starting on April Fool’s Day.

In September, organizers of the Women’s March announced that they’d decided to designate the theme of their upcoming convention as the famous Maxine Waters’ quote “Reclaiming Our Time.” The all-powerful Congresswoman would be featured as headliner.  The convention only generated modest amounts of buzz until recently, when organizers revealed that they had invited Senator Bernie Sanders to deliver an opening night speech on October 27th. Cue the hot takes. SEE ALSO: The Resistance is now a lifestyle brand […]

There’s never an age limit when it comes to fighting for what you believe in.  Brennan Gilmore tweeted a photo Sunday of his 97-year-old grandfather, John Middlemas, kneeling in support of the #TakeAKnee movement, started by former San Francisco 49ers football player Colin Kaepernick in 2016 over police violence against African Americans.  President Donald Trump’s outspoken criticism against athletes who don’t stand up for the national anthem sparked this protest among people like Middlemas in solidarity with NFL athletes who kneeled on the field this weekend.  SEE ALSO: #TakeAKnee protests are about police violence, not the military or the Constitution […]

If there’s anywhere you shouldn’t smoke, it’s at a gas station.  A dude enjoying a cigarette at his car at a gas station in Sofia, Bulgaria received a healthy dose of instant karma when he apparently refused to extinguish his butt when asked.  SEE ALSO: How the ‘GoT’ finale delivered one of the series’ most satisfying deaths In the clip, the young man can be seen smoking next to his car and briefly arguing with someone off camera. Then, the gas station attendant slowly approaches the pump and calmly removes a fire extinguisher from its holder. Without warning, he then […]
