Covfefe Coffee Klatch

Perplexed about Drumpf's use of the non-word "covfefe," The Mistress and Norma decided he meant "coffee klatch" or "Kaffeeklatsch"...



Won't you join us?

Wet Shave or Dry?

Wet shave (with shaving cream and a razor)?...



Or dry shave (with an electric shaver)?...


[via]

Which method of shaving do you Bitches prefer?

And have you ever had an old-fashioned wet shave from a barber with a straight razor (aka “cutthroat” razor) and hot towel?...



And do you remember your first shave?

Stripes

A new study suggests STRIPES might be making us ill...


[via]

Scientists warn that stripes in architecture and clothing may trigger migraines and epileptic seizures.

“Vertical orientation of stripes are in general worse than horizontal,” said Dr Dorothée Kasteleijn-Nolst Trenité, an epileptologist of UMC Utrecht.

“Examples of striped patterns that are potentially provocative in daily life are rolling stairs, venetian blinds, striped clothes and buildings.”

Oh dear...

Grease is the Word

Thieves are going after grease...



... and these grease grabbers are stealing it from restaurants. As much as $75 million of grease is illegally siphoned every year.

The demand for fryer oil, aka “yellow grease” is on the upswing. A spike in biofuel prices has increased demand for the golden gunk to be refined into biofuel for cars and trucks.

Recently, two men were arrested for grease theft at a Wingstop restaurant in Knoxville, Tennessee. They were set to walk away with over 2,000 pounds of yellow grease, which they could have sold for about $600. 44 similar thefts were reported in that same time period.

“It’s like crack money,” Sumit Majumdar, president of Buffalo Biodiesel Inc. told Bloomberg. “There’s an actual market for stolen oil. It’s almost like a pawn shop or scrap-metal business.”

Lock up your deep fryers, Bitches.

Do You Wear an Apron?

In Canada and the U.S. we call it an "apron." In the U.K., you might hear it referred to as a "pinny." And in Germany, I believe the word is "Schürze." (I hope Herr Mago will correct me if I'm mistaken.)





Do you Bitches wear an apron while cooking or baking or barbecuing?

If so, do you prefer a full frontal coverage apron (as pictured in photo #1) or a half apron (as pictured in photo #2)?

Do you prefer a utilitarian, no-nonsense style or something frilly to flounce about the kitchen?

And finally, do you have any novelty aprons (i.e. aprons with funny images or sayings)?...



Tell us about your aprons, Bitches.

The Merry Month of May

MAY, 1975.
Click to embiggen the calendar...

[via]

What happened in May, 1975?

May 2: David Beckham, English footballer/underwear model was born...



May 3: "He Don't Love You (Like I Love You)" by Tony Orlando and Dawn topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart and remained there for three weeks...



May 4: Moe Howard, leader and last survivor of The Three Stooges, died...



May 10: Now you can record TV shows! The Betamax home videotaping system was introduced by Sony with the LV-1901 going on sale in Japan. The unit, which contained a color TV, the recorder, and the tapes, retailed for $2,488 (equivalent to more than $9,000 USD in 2010)...



May 11: A crowd of about 75,000 people in New York City's Central Park celebrated the end of the Vietnam War. Organized by Phil Ochs, the rally included music performances by Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, and Paul Simon...



And, in all likelihood, in May, 1975 some of you Bitches were up to no good.

Public Service Announcement #36

Think twice before calling room service. Studies show that hotel phones have high levels of bodily fluid residue on them…


[via]

Telephone keypads in hotel rooms were found to be teeming with over double the acceptable amount of bacteria; far more, in fact, than bathroom door handles.

Experts suggest that hotel guests protect themselves from bacteria by washing their hands, using hand sanitizer and wiping down surfaces with disinfectant wipes.

This has been an Infomaniac Public Service Announcement.

New Feature on Infomaniac

A few of you eagle-eyed Bitches have noticed that there’s a new feature on Infomaniac’s sidebar.

Today, for example, you’ll see a photo of actress Drew Barrymore.



A few days from now, the photo will change to something else.

Below the sidebar photo it says, “Drew Barrymore Banned on Infomaniac.”

Above the sidebar photo, it says, "Click pic for details." If you click on the photo, it will lead you to an article.

Every so often, The Mistress will change the sidebar photo and the caption. Simply click on the photo to find out what it’s all about. You’ll be lead to an article or news item of some sort.

So why is Drew Barrymore banned on Infomaniac, you ask? Well, if you click on the photo, you’ll see the headline, “Drew Barrymore Named Crocs Brand Ambassador.” That should be all you need to know. The Mistress bans anyone wearing Crocs, approving of Crocs, and especially becoming an AMBASSADOR for Crocs.

The Mistress will not rest until Crocs are banished from the face of the Earth.

p.s. We hope you enjoy this new feature on Infomaniac.

Eldridge Cleaver's Penis Pants

Eldridge Cleaver (1935-1998) was an American writer, political activist, marijuana dealer, crack addict, born-again Christian, Presidential candidate, prisoner, flowerpot maker, and prominent early leader of the Black Panthers.

And the inventor of  penis pants...



Oh, and he was a serial rapist, but more about that later.

His unique trousers were known as "The Cleavers," not to be mistaken for that fictional TV family on the 1960s "Leave it to Beaver"...



Unlike other pants on the market, The Cleavers were tailored to accommodate a man's sex organ.



Jet magazine.

The Cleavers were constructed with two types of eye-catching pouches: one was an oval shaped like a football player's jockey cup and the other featured a tubular shaped extension for the man's penis and an adjoining smaller pouch for his testicles.

"Heat has a decomposing impact on the sperm and traditional pants press the penis underneath the belly. My pants take it back out," Cleaver said.

He enthused that the pants would give men "a chance to assert their masculinity." Did we mention he was a rapist?

Partial transcription of the advertisement text is below the image...


Walking Tall ... Walking Proud ... Walking Softly but Carrying It Big

You'll Be Cock of the Walk with the NEW FALL COLLECTION from ELDRIDGE de PARIS
Life is just a chain of daisies when you slip into (careful, now) these revolutionary hot pants – with their ever-so-daring accent provacateur – just unveiled by famous radical designer Edridge Cleaver of Paris. They’re bad, they’re mad, they’re up front (but never out of sight)... and, of course, they’re for men only… REAL men… the three-fisted variety. ‘There’s no mistaking they are men’s pants,’ says M. Cleaver (seen here modeling a high-waisted two-tone pair of ‘Cleavers’ with side zipper and matching ‘appurtenance.’ ‘The pants that men wear now will be seen as girls’ pants after my models are sold. And don’t forget…heavy on the starch!
Eldridge Cleaver was introduced to the art of sewing while he was a prisoner in California. There, he was assigned to the clothing factory as a thread snipper. The idea to design his own pants came when he was exiled in Paris.

Cleaver viewed his pants as the ultimate in men's clothing and insisted that in five years they would be the sartorial norm. 

But wait! There's more!...




Photo: Jet magazine.

Although we here at Infomaniac are amused by the Cleaver crotch, we cannot gloss over the fact that Cleaver acknowledged committing acts of rape. He stated that he initially raped black women in the ghetto "for practice" and then embarked on the serial rape of white women. He described these crimes as politically inspired, motivated by a genuine conviction that the rape of white women was "an insurrectionary act".

The pants were never a great commercial success. Eldridge Cleaver later became a Republican and a Mormon. He died in 1998, age 62.
