We’ve Reached Peak Thought Catalog: ‘I Had Sex With A Trans Woman’

Hey guys, a straight cis dude fucked a trans woman even though he knew she was trans. Isn’t that amazing? Should he not be awarded the Nobel Prize for Enlightened Cock for putting his dick inside a woman who used to have a dick? After all, “she said she had all of her lady parts” and she did so that’s totally cool, right, bro? Maybe this bro will score sweet tang off the Hampshire grads he meets in a nearby coffee shop, because Love. Anyway, obviously this is on Thought Catalog and obviously you need to read an excerpt, which I shall provide here. Read more on We’ve Reached Peak Thought Catalog: ‘I Had Sex With A Trans Woman’…

Here Are Some Other Stupid Offensive Football Team Names

Some people on your Internets are Very Upset over the news today that the U.S. Patent Office canceled the Washington Redskins trademark. Why oh why would the U.S. Patent Office do such a thing? Because “redskins” is a derogatory term for Native Americans, who happen to be actual human people and not just Disney characters, did you know? Anyway, people on Twitter are saying all kinds of amazing things about this, as you’d expect. And here at the joint partnership that is Happy Nice Time People and Wonkette, we are no different. In our “sekrit chatcave” where we communicate all day long, we have come up with a list of excellent team names that are about as defensible as the Washington Redskins.

Sister Wives: Polygamists in a Shark Tank

There was so much crying in this episode I felt in comparison that I was born without ovaries or tear ducts. Am I Dexter? The emotions were so high between Meri and Robyn you could luxuriate in a long hot bath using the stuff that was flying out of their eyes. Why the cry babes, you ask? Well, this episode was high stakes! They were headed into an investment firm to pitch their jewelry and accessories business, “My Sister Wives Closet.” Think: bangle bracelets crafted by Chinese children ages 7-8, and designed by four women who all have sex with a man who looks like Nickelback.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio Croaks His Way From the South Bay to the Valley

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti bet New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio that the L.A. Kings would win the 2014 Stanley Cup Final. And he was right! So Mayor Bill had to go on national teevee with America’s Prankster Husband, Jimmy Kimmel, and sing Randy Newman’s “I Love L.A.” in front of everybody. This is just adorable and beautiful and amazing and deeply awkward and extraordinary funny. Watch it and embrace the incredible nerdiness on display. Also, not to be totally inappropriate, but Eric Garcetti is bae. RAWWWWRRR! Read more on HNTP… Read more on NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio Croaks His Way From the South Bay to the Valley…

KFC Corporate Headquarters Briefly Restores Faith In Humanity (No, We Are Serious)

You know what sucks? People. All people. Everywhere. (Well, except you beautiful people reading this here blog.)

Awesome Pick-Up Artist Moves From An Actual Hot Human Woman

Now if you know anything about the nature of this site (pop-culturey, feministy little sister to Wonkette) you may expect me to troll pickup artists (PUAs) in this post. But! That is not what I am going to do! Instead, I shall offer my own take on pickup artistry. I really think I could teach a kickass PUA class and help my gentleman students score with excellent babes.

Kickstarter … Wait, No, Change.org Petition To Get Eric Cantor On Dancing With The Stars

Look, I don’t know why I’ve got a crush on Eric Cantor. I just do. He’s handsome, and Jewish, and Southern, and I’m so on board for all of this. He’s got a wife and kids, and I’m not trying to mess with that or anything. I just fantasize about seeing him wearing a spangly sparkly outfit, waltzing around a dance floor in high-heeled shoes with a woman 25 years his junior. Is that so wrong?

Here Is How Homosexuality Is Different From Alcoholism

Talking brunette Ken doll Rick Perry said something great the other day: “I may have the genetic coding that I’m inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that, and I look at the homosexual issue the same way.” To put his remarks in context, context does not matter when you say a thing like this. But it occurs to me that maybe Rick Perry is just confused and going through a phase, and needs the light of Happy Nice Time People to show him The Way. Therefore, I’ve put together a quick primer for Rick Perry on how the glorious pageant that is homosexuality is actually very different from the tragic disease that is alcoholism.

Throwback Thursday: Eric Cantor and the Naughty Union Video

Eric Cantor has always been my secret dreamboat hate-boyfriend. (C’mon! He is mean AND handsome, rawwwr!) Now that he has been promoted to well-paid lobbyist and doesn’t have to waste time legislating anymore, we thought it’d be nice to take a trip in the way-back machine to 2009, when Cantor’s press aide had to apologize for circulating an expletive-filled video mocking a union.

Because if you’re going to serve our nation’s heroes, you’d sure as fuck better not waste time trying to play grabass with your coworkers.

Quickie Movie Review: ‘Obvious Child’

“Obvious Child,” or “the abortion comedy” as you might call it in your Facebook status to bait your more conservative relatives, is already getting compared to “Knocked Up.” The only similarity between “Obvious Child” and the Judd Apatow comedy is the classic drunk-girl-meets-drunk-boy-and-accidentally-gets-pregnant storyline. Condoms are obtained. Condoms are unwrapped. Condoms never end up where they would actually be useful. Read more on Quickie Movie Review: ‘Obvious Child’…

Portraits of Little Kids With Their Own Real Guns

We don’t know what to say about the tragic shooting in Troutdale, Oregon, or the tragic shooting in Vegas, or the tragic shooting in this town or that town or this state or that state. Perhaps there’s no point in words at a time like this, a time when we’re so gun-weary as a nation that these sorts of incidents are beginning to seem commonplace to some of us. The brilliant site FotoMofo was kind enough to let us know about this stunning series of portraits by Belgian photographer An-Sofie Kesteleyn, who is based in the Netherlands but traveled to the United States to photograph children with real guns marketed to them. She was moved to do so after learning of the death of a two-year-old child, shot by her five-year-old brother, in Kentucky.
