HENRY THE HAND

I was on a retreat in Frost Valley, NY this weekend, and what really tickled me was HENRY THE HAND, their little mascot for hand washing. Little did I know that Henry had his own website and even a youtube video! My favorite is at 1:25. Yes, children, remember to wash your hands when coming…

Gabe Delahaye’s Criticism of “the View”

Listen guys. I have a really big crush on Gabe Delahaye*. I think he’s really funny. Whenever my blog posts seem funny, it’s pretty much just me ripping off Gabe Delahaye. He’s all over the internet but it’s likely that if you’ve heard of him, it’s because of his blog, Videogum. I won’t spend too…

Sign the petition, send a coat hanger

Sarah’s done a great job of providing information for y’all about the recent blow to women’s rights in the form of the Stupak amendment (MORE LIKE STU-PID AMENDMENT, AMIRIGHT?).  I just wanted to let people know about this petition, which will send coat hangers to the twenty democrats (all men) who, normally pro-choice, voted in…

It overlooks the High Line park, and guests of the hotel often have sex or just expose themselves in the windows. The management is notorious for tacitly encouraging this, and it has earned the hotel a reputation…

New Report from World Health Organization has Sad Results for Women

There’s a new WHO report out, which says that although women are more likely to seek medical treatment than men, “they often fail to get adequate treatment to cope with violence, depression and problems related to old age, such as dementia.” The saddest part of this report? “The obstacles that stand in the way of…
