Birds Do It, Bees Do It, Even Educated Fleas Do It


Ah, nature.  So peaceful, except for all the animals constantly trying to do it.  

Not that we humans aren't always trying to do the same thing.  Trojan did a study recently of the sexual habits of the citizens of several major US cities.  Turns out Atlanta is the freakiest city and has the highest libido, while Dallas/Fort Worth has the lowest libido.  Yeah, you know why Dallas isn't trying to get some?  Because most of the time it's too damn hot to breathe, let alone get your freak on!  (HuffPo)

Keepin' it classy at the Republican National Convention, I see.  Classy AND racist.  H/T to Geep for this story.  (TPM)

Ah, yes, the old "blame the victim" routine, with a splash of some "homosexuality is caused by a lack of a father figure" bullshit.  Oh, AND he's a fan of Jerry Sandusky!  This guy is clearly in the running for Jackass of the Year.  (Gothamist)

This next link is a cause close to the heart of one of our writers.  The family of a slain woman need your help in getting the case turned over to a grand jury.  (Justice for Michelle)

If you're not already in love with Rebel Wilson, perhaps this clip of her on "Conan" discussing "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" will do the trick.  (Crushable)

Speaking of funny people, here's a look at what it's like to take Second City's Comedy Studies program.  (Splitsider)

Carl Kleiner's "Avios" photo series will have you tilting your head in all angles to view these falling objects.  (Laughing Squid)

Summer may be coming to an end, but that's no reason to stop making smores!  Here's a delicious recipe that doesn't require a campfire.  (Pioneer Woman)

Yes, yes, I know, correlation doesn't equal causality and all that, but still, this is a good reason to try to relax more, isn't it?  (The Atlantic)

We regularly sing the praises of Birchbox here, but did you know there are other fantastic subscription box services out there, like one that will send you all handmade products from independent artists and companies?  (Blisstree)

Hermione, Michonne, Bella, Buffy, Lisbeth, and Katniss, all living in one house?  That's the premise of this hilarious new webseries, the "BAMF Girls Club" from Comediva.  I can't wait for episode 2!

But the funniest thing I saw today would have to be this "Legitimate Rape" pharmaceutical ad.  It's a parody that's so spot-on you have to laugh, or you'll else you'll weep as you recall that this is what people actually believe.  And I owe yet another thanks to Geep for his help in today's links!
