Would you ever leave your house without makeup? Without just a smidgen of eyeliner and maybe a hint of lipgloss? If your answer is hell no, it’s probably because you work for M.A.C. and get paid to sport cheek stain on a regular basis… or maybe you’re just a “typical” woman. But if the thought of walking around in public without anything on your face–except for the, um, necessary things that usually accompany that area– doesn’t phase you, you should probably join the Naked Face Project.

And by “great entertainment,” I mean jaw-dropping crazy conspiracy theories about pretty much everything, including motherhood.

I know, I know– everyone’s sick of the whole Rush Limbaugh story. But I’d just like to add one last thing and then I’ll stop. Pinky promise.
Apparently Missouri lawmakers want to place a bust of Mr. Limbaugh in their statehouse, as an honor to their fellow Missourian (Missouri-ite?). That’s odd in itself– I’m not clear on how many famous or successful people hail from the state, but it’s kinda… sad that they couldn’t find anyone more deserving.

Thus far, Axe Body Spray’s entire repertoire of ads has focused on women fawning over men who’re wearing their product. But then yesterday an Axe employee woke up and wondered, “gee, why don’t we do something less boring and offensive?” And that is most likely how this new ad campaign was born.

The U.S. is going to pull out of Afghanistan sometime in the near future. We know that. But what happens to women after our troops leave is a different story.

One would hope that after Gov. Bob McDonnell of Virginia recanted his support for the state’s law that would require women seeking abortions to have a mandatory ultrasound, other state leaders would take note. Apparently not.
