April 26th, outsourced

From The Onion: Majority of Americans not informed enough to stereotype Chechens.

This is something that really happened: three Emiratis were deported by Saudi Arabia because the religious police feared they were too irresistible to women. My Saudi students corroborated this story, though they may have been corroborating it based on the same news sources. In any case, here are (purported) pictures of one of the irresistible men.

This is something that really exists: a food called Rip'n Chick'n.

Oooh, help with research by taking surveys about all kinds of stuff! [HT Liz]

Best personals ad ever. And by best, I mean worst. Or most creatively bad, maybe. [HT Liz]

"Sleep when the baby sleeps. Clean when the baby cleans. Don’t worry. Stress causes your baby stress and a stressed baby won't sleep." And other ridiculous sleep advice.

I read this article (suggesting that women who attend Ivy League schools are obligated to work in their field after graduating) the day after writing that post about moms and higher education. Pretty much, I disagree with almost everything that article says. What do you think? [HT Stacie]

"The man ran away down the street toward his car with the barefoot Hendrix and others in pursuit. Hendrix said he couldn't catch Eggersten before he fled in his car, but he picked up chapstick that the man dropped and memorized his license plate."I yelled at him, 'I've got your DNA and I've got your license plate: You are so done,'" Hendrix said." In other words, Napoleon Dynamite exists and he is a Mormon Bishop in Utah.

Pictures of people who mock me.

Don't you hate headlines that just BEG you to click on them because they conceal pertinent information that might make the story unappealing? Twitter's @HuffPoSpoilers can solve that problem (for The Huffington Post, at least). [HT Eric D. Snider]

That Mormon bishop with a samurai sword is the second-weirdest story I've read all year (Manti Te'o's fake girlfriend is number one, ha).
