    The Roll Not Buttered

    Two rolls were left on a china plate,
    And sorry I could not have eaten both
    And be no glutton, long I gaped
    And looked at one as far as I could
    To where it was buttered by my host;

  • Abducted: Planets We’d Be Okay Visiting

    Happy Alien Abduction Day! While we’re not exactly psyched to get pulled away from Earth by strange creatures, we do have some planets we wouldn’t mind seeing. We’ve listed the ones worthy of a tour below.

  • St. Patrick Contemplates Driving Out The Snakes

    Legend has it that, in the latter half of the 5th Century, St. Patrick drove all of the snakes out of Ireland. We can only imagine such a massive undertaking required the consultation of Patrick’s best friend first.

  • Geeky Beauty and the Beast

    We all know that Beauty and the Beast is a tale as old as time – but it doesn’t have to stay that way. What if we put a geeky spin on this classic tale of love?

  • Feminist Books for Your BFF

    It’s Women’s History Month and we’re looking for as many reasons as possible to celebrate the women in our lives. March is prime “because I love you” gift time, so we’ve rounded up five of our favorite feminist books to get for your best friend, sister, mother, aunt, or significant other. Because adding to someone’s feminist library is always a great idea.

  • QUIZ: Is Your BFF Stabbing You in the Back?

    The Ides of March is here, so we don’t know about you, but we’re watching our backs. In case you’re not in the know, Julius Caesar was famously stabbed to death on the Ides of March (that’s March 15, by the way) by his friend and protégé, Brutus. Since we love you so much and don’t want you to suffer the same fate, we’ve created a literature-based quiz to help you determine if your BFF is about to stab (or is currently stabbing) you in the back.
