Finally, an ad for sanitary products that features an actual period.

Comments are off for this post.
Sanitary towel and tampon ads don't exactly portray periods in the most realistic way. If it's not strange-looking blue liquid being poured on pads, it's women jumping around splashing each other for reasons that remain unknown to us.  Bodyform's latest ad shows something refreshingly different. An actual period.  The ad opens with red liquid being poured onto a pad. Not a drop of blue dye in sight! It also shows a closeup of a woman's thighs in a shower, with menstrual blood trickling down the inside of her leg—a sight that's familiar to anyone who has periods. The ad is [...]

Comments are off for this post.
They don't call him Mr. Worldwide for nothing. Pitbull is sending his private plane to Puerto Rico for cancer patients to be brought into the mainland United States for treatment. The U.S. territory is still in dire straits from Hurricane Maria, which has left the entire island without power and upwards of 60 percent of the population without access to potable water. Generators are being distributed to hospitals, but there's no telling how long it'll be used for.  SEE ALSO: Mark Cuban let J.J.

If there's anywhere you shouldn't smoke, it's at a gas station.  A dude enjoying a cigarette at his car at a gas station in Sofia, Bulgaria received a healthy dose of instant karma when he apparently refused to extinguish his butt when asked.  SEE ALSO: How the 'GoT' finale delivered one of the series’ most satisfying deaths In the clip, the young man can be seen smoking next to his car and briefly arguing with someone off camera. Then, the gas station attendant slowly approaches the pump and calmly removes a fire extinguisher from its holder. Without warning, he then [...]

Comments are off for this post.
Whoever is responsible for the Mayor of San Juan's T-shirt collection, we'd like to take this time to thank you. Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, not one to mince her words or protest T-shirts, wore a black T-shirt emblazoned with the words "NASTY" on it to a Univision interview Wednesday morning. Yulín Cruz's T-shirt appears to have been in response to Trump's tweets about her on Saturday, as well as his spectacularly tone deaf visit to the island yesterday.
