Was it the kind that comes in a can?

Suffering back spams can’t be fun. I just read about it on Yahoo! Sports and I’m left wondering: Was it the Spam that comes in a can or the spam that comes in your email?

Yum. Pears on a string

Imagine a woman accessorizing an outfit with a string of pears. I’d love to see that, but alas Yahoo! Style merely provided a description:

Where does she wear it? On a hat like Carmen Miranda? Or maybe she just hangs them from her purse, like this:


Ah, the sweet smell of granite!

Who doesn’t love the smell of granite, especially when it’s nashi pear granite. Now there’s a fragrance that’s captured the scent, and Yahoo! Beauty has the inside scoop:

Speaking of scoops, I’d love a scoop of nashi pear granita right now. I just love the smell of the icy dessert, made with nashi (or Asian) pears.

Simpler, perfect-for-reading headlines

Sometimes I feel so lost, confused, and even dumb when reading headlines like this on Yahoo! Shine:

simper shine

Am I supposed to simper — smile in a silly, self-conscious, and coy manner — because it’s perfect for fall sandwiches? Frankly, simpering doesn’t improve my Dagwood one bit. And when I’m not in the mood for a Dagwood Bumstead special, I’ll be looking for recipes for simpler, perfect-for-fall sandwiches.

Is that a euphemism?

So that’s what Republicans call it — brainstorming! I would have thought it involved a much lower part of the body:

Thanks to Yahoo! News‘ “The Ticket” for explaining what the GOP was doing after the 2012 erection election.

War leads to divorce

If your marriage is suffering from all-old war, then a divorce might be in your future:
