You Don't Own Me
Faithful reader Chad ( A fag named 'Chad'? Whouda thunk? ) pointed us to this not-so-weird-but-oh-so-fabulous site. Chad assured us that the sites was ( break out your best Jo Anne Worley here and hooooooold the last word ) 'gay-ga-gay'! Indeed it is. It's fawning. It's exhaustive. It uses phrases like 'the lovely Liverpudlian pop princess'. It's tricked out in the most fetching shade of pink. I mean, honestly, what more could a girl want?

Excuse me. Did you say 'Chef boyardee's penis'?
This is one of those catch-all sites that purvey odd pictures and whatever else tickles the fancy of the proprietor. It has a bloggish feel but it's actually organized by topic rather than just being a meandering stream of consciousness. Make sure you check out the pic pages. We also recommend spending a little time with Disney and Science. Oh yeah, and there are the sections on 9/11 and UFOs, and, of course, Chef Boyardee's penis.

Some people should have their photoshop licenses revoked
GlennFeron.com is the portfolio site of a photographer ( named Glenn Feron, natch ) that specializes in 'photo retouching'. Back in the old days, we referred to that as 'airbrushing'. Mr. Feron is doing his best to maintain the Barbie ideal by airbrus—retouching—his models to the point they look like hunks of plastic. He trims the bellies, augments the breasts, sandblasts the skin, etc. Check out the before and after jugs in the pic to the left.

Whaddya mean these didn't test well?
Welcome to the Ad Graveyard! Here you'll find examples of advertising that was nixed before it was ever released to the public. Some of the ads are actually pretty brilliant, but were nixed by unadventurous execs. Others are truly right out of a WTF file. You can't imagine that anyone in any seriousness, would attempt to advertise a Beatles reunion show with the tagline 'They said it would take three more bullets', but here the bus poster is, in all it's glory.
