Bic for Her Pens: A Pointless Gender Stereotype

So, Bic has come out with a pen specifically suited to our needs as ladies. It writes smoother, has a gel grip – you know, for our delicate lady hands – and, I’m assuming, massages my shoulders after a long day of putting on makeup and popping out babies.

I’m sure you’ve heard about this by now, since there’s loads of hilarious posts with snarky reviews of the pen all over the internet and this ridiculous TV ad:

(Is it just me, or is this chick RIDICULOUSLY picky? If you’re screaming in the middle of the hallway that you need a pen, you probably just realized you have a HUGE test in World Civ next period, and you can’t ask the girl who sits behind you for a writing utensil …

What I Be Watchin

While I may be out of town this weekend, and have sketchy internet access that varies in its very availability, this does NOT mean you have to suffer! For your enjoyment, here are some things I’ve been watching this week, and my snarky commentary! 

Dude, I tried to start one of those lunch room fashion shows. It didn’t go so well. Could’ve been because kids were preoccupied doing WEIRD shit like doing homework…or, even weirder, eating? Iiiiiiiii know…wtf, right? Oh also, we’re sane and don’t think soaking up each other’s hotness as we strut in moderately priced clothing, weaving between plates of sloppy joes and “salisbury steak”while we do so, is the best idea ever. 

Rockstare. Blingatude. BFFAEAE. so in touch with the youth, KMart is. Them kids and they’re …

Target Women: Brooke Shields

Sorry for the lack of postage and the following video (although I'm not really sorry...Sarah Haskins is awesome). I have an AP US History test on Friday...which isn't really an excuse, but then again if you've taken APUSH maybe you realize it is. Anyway I have to get back to the frantic facebook inbox thread my class has created, asking each other last minute questions about Bacon's Rebellion (heh. Bacon...) and Triangular Trade that nobody can actually answer. But you don't have to take an APUSH exam SO ENJOY!

Link Love

Happy Thursday! Here are some cool links I’ve deemed worthy of sharing: 

The Good

Nikol Hasler

Nikol Hasler

Nikol Hasler from the Midwest Teen Sex Show apparently now writes an advice column for Milwaukee Magazine. I know what you’re thinking: Milwaukee Magazine has an advice column focused on issues of teen sex? MILWAUKEE is the progressive one who recognizes the sexual problems of teenagers, and all people for that matter, as truly important? WTF? Well, not quite. It’s pretty general advice for the most part, but it’s Nikol Hasler, so it’s awesome. Good job, Milwaukee, good job.

Here is one column focused on sex and here is the most recent one about forgetfulness. Archives here.

 

 

Also SARAH HASKINS HAS A NEW TARGET WOMEN. yayyayayayayyayay!!!! And apparently it was recently Sarah’s …
