Did you shrink your favorite wool sweater? Dry your eyes; there may be hope for that sad little guy. With some baby shampoo, a hand steamer, a little cardboard, a few binder clips, and some elbow grease, you can loosen up the fibers enough to stretch the sweater back into shape. Not all sweaters can be saved—if it has become completely felted, then there may be no hope.

You’re probably most familiar with Aasif Mandvi from his work as The Daily Show’s “Senior Foreign-Looking Correspondent,” “Senior Muslim Correspondent,” and “Senior Brown Correspondent.” On that show, he’s managed to get a GOP chair to admit he’s a bigot (the man later resigned),make a Fox commentator look a fool, and all while maintaining a steely—and hilarious—composure. Given his mad improvisation skills, you’d think that Mandvi came up on the comedy circuit. But you’d be wrong. Read More

We caught up with country music legend Dolly Parton this past summer, and  she opened up about her new album, her old-time religion, and what makes “I Will Always Love You” the greatest ballad of all time “What better person to do BUST magazine than me?” It’s the first thing Dolly Parton says when she calls from her part-time home of Nashville, TN, before letting loose with a melodic laugh, as familiar as her Southern, honey-pie accent. It’s not surprising that the 68-year-old leads with a boob joke. Read More
