And Now, The Only Comic-Con Story You'll Ever Need

It’s the early 2000s, and I’m working at a bar across the street from the convention center where Comic-Con is held. At the time, Comic-Con was big, but the locals hadn’t embraced it and its multitude of people who can recite every episode title of The X-Files in sequential order, the way they have now. The locals… »7/12/15 11:00am7/12/15 11:00am

DeAndre Jordan Hurt Chandler Parsons's Feelings. Hurt 'Em Real Bad, Bro.

Nobody was more instrumental to the Mavericks’ courtship of DeAndre Jordan than Chandler Parsons. Dallas’ small forward was attached to Jordan’s hip throughout the free-agency period, reportedly taking the big man out to dinner five nights in a row and wooing him with talk of MVP awards and All-Star games. But now,… »7/10/15 9:47am7/10/15 9:47am

Bro Haughtily Tries To Exit Drinking Competition, Fails

Each year, the University College Dublin hosts an event known as Iron Stomach, in which a group of freshmen sit on a stage and are forced to eat and drink absurd amounts of gross things. The proceedings are nasty enough to necessitate a large trough—meant for collecting puke, spit, and whatever the hell else—being… »9/17/14 6:08pm9/17/14 6:08pm

Motorcycle Bro Loses Control Of Bike, Wheelies It Into Pool

Not being a gearhead myself, I don't really see the appeal of a pool party where motorcycles are close enough to the pool that this could even happen, but that's just me; I'm not a dude who typically likes to get radical. Just give me a drink and some tunes—loud enough to hear, but not loud enough to turn a pleasant… »6/21/14 2:45pm6/21/14 2:45pm

The United States of Bros: A Map and Field Guide

Like "hipster" and "douchebag," the word "bro" has been applied to such a vast swath of American culture that it seems no one is really sure what it means anymore. Turns out, much of that confusion can be attributed to the fact that a bro is different depending on where in the Bronited States of Bromerica you're… »4/02/14 1:12pm4/02/14 1:12pm

I Tried BroApp and It Did Not Turn Me Into an Awesome Boyfriend

Every day on my way to work, I spend the entire train ride deleting inane press releases from my email inbox. Diet pills? Delete. A series of seminars on how to convince your boyfriend to propose? Delete. The launch of a new cake flavored vodka made especially for tampon soakage? .... Archive. But the other week, one… »3/05/14 6:04pm3/05/14 6:04pm

Frat Bro Issues a Damn Good Apology for Rapey 'Rapebait' Email

Last week, a gross, rapey email sent to the entirety Georgia Tech's Phi Kappa Tau fraternity by the house's social chair went viral. Rightfully so; it was a rapey, misogynistic piece of trash that referred to getting women as "luring rapebait." Now, the author of the infamous letter has offered an apology— and a damn… »10/10/13 4:34pm10/10/13 4:34pm

Let's Bro-ify ALL the Woman Products So Men Won't Feel Like Pussies

We've covered at length the ways in which traditionally "male" fields and products (like pens!) are targeted at women: we ladies, weeping flowers that we are, are often offered a sanitized, delicate — often pink — version of a traditionally male product. The reverse situation is just as telling: when traditionally… »7/25/13 11:47am7/25/13 11:47am

Some website we've never heard of decided to rank the "best cities for bros," and Los Angeles unsurprisingly came out on top. After all, our favorite bros ever hail from the City of Angels. Laker Bros, indeed, found themselves featured this morning on KTLA's report about L.A. being named Capital City of the Bros. »7/03/13 12:15pm7/03/13 12:15pm

How Bro Is a Bro? Let's Consult Our Bro-proval Matrix

And now for the most important question of our time: what is a "bro," exactly? It was the second-most popular plea for clarity my parents made while visiting me at college (the first most popular was, "Why in God's name are you basically pursuing a degree in analyzing vampire erotica?"). "Callie," they would ask,… »6/24/13 2:18pm6/24/13 2:18pm
