Kinda witty one-liner or non-witty one-liner?

How well do you know those witty late-90s, early-2000s Sex and the City episode titles? How well do you know those modern-day Sarcastic T-shirts from Walmart?

Think you’re a pro when it comes to both topics? Well, find out here!

Though there was that one scene in the first Sex and the City movie where Charlotte drinks the tiniest bit of water from her shower and subsequently shits herself in front of “the girls” — which was either supposed to be karma for an entitled white woman who refuses to consume anything from the resort since it’s located in a…


🎶 It’s the most wonderful tiiiiime of the year… 🎶

Girl Scouts are important once a year, and that annual event is here: Samoa season.

Though these ambitious young cookie sellers are normally as easy to track down as a yoga pants MLM on Facebook, I had to work a lot harder this year. You know, because of the whole pandemic situation.

Luckily, I did finally obtain a box — I know a guy. (AKA I asked every single person I know to find them for me.)

So in honor of this very special occasion and this very special box of Samoas, I put on my most forgiving sweatpants (which…


You won’t BELIEVE how long you’ve been making these mistakes!

Yikes! Have you started to notice the weight creeping up around that waistline of yours — but you have no idea WHY?

Hey, it happens to a lot of us! Many people have what seem like innocent habits, but turn out to be detrimental to their weight. You know how it goes: a simple habit here, a slip up there — and all of a sudden, none of your clothes fit anymore!

But the good news is, a lot of these habits are completely irreversible. …


For example, “too much sourdough starter”

This time a year ago, as we were all canceling vacations, setting up home offices, and avoiding each other like the — you know — plague, and it felt like that slow ease into a freezing cold indoor pool. The initial temperature is an almost-unbearable shock to your system, but then you sort of get used to it (half from effort and half from your entire body going numb).

But — even as the most memorably forgettable year in history — there was still a lot that this year has brought as far as tropes and experiences and iconic situations…


According to my reliable sources at CNN and TikTok, the cry laughing emoji is out and I have to admit I’m pretty tears streaming down face emoji about it.

As the “kids” now say, it is an “uncool” emoji — something only “moms” and “other uncool people, like adults” use.

But as someone who cry laughs on a regular basis in real life, this emoji perfectly reflects my reaction to, say, that very funny response someone made to my text message, or that crazy dog picture I just received. …


Things are about to get steamy, and by steamy I mean really awkward

In honor of Valentine’s Day, the most romantic day of the year besides this most recent inauguration day, I cracked open my legendary middle school diary.

This diary, with a handsome horse on the front and a lock on the side that never actually worked, contains all of my young teenage memories and secrets. These include friend drama, family drama, and every single crush I ever had (that I never had the courage to talk to).

To commemorate the romance season, I’ve gone down the path of handsome horse diary lane to visit the day of my first kiss.

We are annihilating the earth with our bad decisions!

Luckily, we’ve begun taking huge steps to reverse global warming. For example, some coffee shops offer paper straws instead of plastic ones!

This holiday season, you too can take powerful measures to help prevent the planet from combusting from within. To really make a difference this year, I’m offering up 11 ways to replace that wasteful wrapping paper with something a little more environmentally friendly.

Hey, with movements like this, 2021 could just be the year we’ll finally get this pesky climate change issue behind us once and for all!

Believe me, no one was more surprised than I was

Last weekend, I discovered that Christmas tree farms are not at all the magical holiday utopia that I once thought.

Just as a disclaimer, I’ve never actually been to a Christmas tree farm. Growing up, we always got our tree from someone selling them out of a truck in the nearby CVS parking lot. Which sounds illegal, but I’m pretty sure it was not.

If you had asked me back then, I would have likely assumed that’s what a Christmas tree farm was — Christmas trees grow in the back of trucks, I probably would have said. …


This year, health officials are all trying to convince Americans not to travel for Thanksgiving. They’re encouraging everyone to stay home and lay low to prevent spreading the virus into other parts of the state, country, and at-risk populations.

But let’s go ahead and get this out there, everyone: Thanksgiving is a bad holiday that should have been canceled LONG ago.

The pandemic is really just doing us a huge favor by forcing us all to skip it.

Don’t believe me? Prepare to be convinced.

Thanksgiving Is Responsible for the Death of Millions of Turkeys a Year

You know who understands what we’re going through during this killing spree of a pandemic…
