While sitting on the L-train heading to Brooklyn, I found myself completely surrounded by images of the famous Youtubers Michelle Phan and Bethany Mota who are a part of Youtube’s latest commercial campaign to promote successful creators. With over 5 million subscribers each, these “beauty gurus” are making quite a name for themselves, but that doesn’t come without the harsh criticism from many viewers in a dastardly online ...

"You're not like, a 'gay' gay guy." "I wanna set you up with my friend--he's gay, too!" Is anyone else sick and tired of gay people being clumped together into one stereotypical persona by ignorant straight people? *Shoots hand up enthusiastically*
I literally could not stop LOLing about this parody video made by comedian Daniel-Ryan Spaulding called, “If Gay Guys Said the Shit Straight People Say..."
It is Fabulous!!! (Deep and abiding ... Read More

If you're ever wondering where awesome gifs like these come from, the answer is, as usual: a weirdly sexist internet video!!
If you thought the nineties was all Bjork and Julia Stiles, The Wifey is here to set you straight.
The gems are not purely visual, folks. The tasteful nuclear family and their brunette pals drop line after line about how the internet will improve "Peter's grades…and Dasha's too!" and how they "doubt" ... Read More

We all have our favorite children's show theme song – one we've committed to memory over the course of many Saturday mornings. One we used to know by heart, and could scream along to while munching sugary cereal in front of the TV. Some of my personal favorites: the theme for Magic School Bus (a classic), Pepper Ann (my lips are moving along to the lyrics as I link this), and the more recent The Weekenders (DRINK ... Read More
"I’ve just found my new favorite thing."
That’s what I thought to myself while watching Ingrid Jungermann sext “I want to respect you from behind” in her Web Series “F to 7th.” The episode--my favorite of the first season--revolves around Ingrid’s sexual relationship with guest star Ann Carr, when the women find out they were both wearing the strap on in the relationship, quite literally.
“F to 7th” deals with ... Read More

Bad Lip Reading is back and as uproarious as ever.
The first time I watched Twilight I was helping out at a birthday party for 13- year- old girl, so I was without a doubt scarred for life. Robert Patterson was ruined forever.
Thankfully, Bad Lip Reading came to my rescue. This video is the only way I could ever watch 7 minutes of the Twilight series without cringing.
The clip is full of hilarious lines and even a couple of tambourine song numbers. ... Read More
I just watched 3 minutes of Ilana Glazer rolling around a floor in bubble wrap and then smashing her face into a cake.
I know you are probably thinking, "Why the hell would you watch that?" Well personally I will watch anything Glazer does, as a huge fan of her Comedy Central show Broad City. The show itself started off as a web series created by Glazer and co-star Abbi Jacobson about two girls living a hysterically real and yet completely absurd life in Brooklyn. ... Read More

My first experience with a Walkman is forever burned into my memory. My mom and I went to some local mixed-media store that has since gone out of business, and I begged her to shell out the dollars so I could listen to my Spice Girls in isolated bliss. My player of choice was bright red and had a Mickey-head shaped window to view the magical spinning of those cassette wheels. I put on my headphones, pressed the massive plastic play button, and yelled to my mom "WOW ... Read More

I began taking comedy classes at the Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) a few weeks ago, and let me tell you, they let just about anyone willing to fork over money into those classes, so don’t hold your comedic expectations too high, okay?!
I have, however, had the luck of meeting some really talented people, who I plan on name- dropping into conversations in the future while saying, “I knew them when…”
One of these super ... Read More
This is the cutest thing I have seen today:
Major props to American Eagle Outfitters for making a fake line for animals (complete with a mockumentary) to help raise money for rescue organizations.
...their creative team deserves to be showered in sloppy, wonderful, St. Bernard kisses.
Also, the “American Beagle Outfitters Dogumentary” is a must-watch! Really high caliber parody. Sample soundbyte: “Do you know what it is ... Read More
