Florida State's "Ask Jameis" Hashtag Was A Predictable Mess

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is famous for a lot things. He won the Heisman trophy and the BCS title game last season, for instance. He's also been accused of rape in a case bungled by the Tallahassee police department and got busted for stealing crab legs. So, when FSU inexplicably started an… » 8/10/14 4:40pm 8/10/14 4:40pm

All Shock, No Awe: 7-Eleven's Doritos Loaded, Reviewed

Are you repulsed by the idea of eating prepared food from a convenience-store chain most notable for a sludgy cold-sugar drink with the word "slurp" in the name? Are you fundamentally opposed to having your lunch heated in a machine also used to reinvigorate yesterweek's Go-Go Taquitos? Are you not magnetically… » 7/08/14 3:45pm 7/08/14 3:45pm

Taco Bell's Quesarito: A Fast-Food Love Affair Gone Awry

Hybrid foods are hit or miss. When they're honest attempts to expand the human dining experience by combining the virtues of two or more complementary yet previously segregated items, the results can be extraordinary.

The Brewers Are Selling Awful Novelty Shirts

It's hard to put into words the feelings this Carlos Gomez collage stirs. Mostly, I feel shame, embarrassment, and a little anger. And sadness. Shame, embarrassment, anger, and sadness. We can probably include confusion, too. Shame, embarrassment, anger, sadness, and confusion. I feel these things for Carlos Gomez.… » 3/21/14 5:19pm 3/21/14 5:19pm

Nicolas Anelka May Have Celebrated Goal With A Nazi Salute

After Anelka scored this goal for West Bromwich, he took his left hand to his right bicep in a gesture that is called "La Quenelle," named after the word for "an elongated creamed fish dumpling." Apparently, an "anti-establishment" comedian in France named Dieudonné M'Bala M'Bala invented the gesture, which is… » 12/28/13 12:45pm 12/28/13 12:45pm

Golf Course's 9/11 Discount Promotion Goes Real Bad, Real Fast

Wednesday is the 12th anniversary of the day terrorists crashed two planes into the World Trade Center, another into the Pentagon and yet another was downed in a field in Pennsylvania. All told, close to 3,000 people died. Nine holes for just $9.11! 18 for $19.11, which barely makes sense, but it's got 9/11 in it!… » 9/09/13 10:43pm 9/09/13 10:43pm

Fan Who Attacks Professional Wrestler Gets Slammed, Destroyed

This gem of a video comes from Cape Town, Africa, where Ananzi fought Shane Koen in a WWP pro wrestling match on July 4.

Above, freshman cornerback Donaldven Manning (wearing #30)—who was nearly kicked off the team as recently as November after racking up two misdemeanors and three minor traffic charges since arriving in Blacksburg last January—shit-talking Rutgers during the Russell Athletic Bowl by, it looks like, miming machine gun… » 12/29/12 12:45pm 12/29/12 12:45pm
