Why Emma Thompson’s character in Love Actually doubts the accuracy of a lobster’s biblical presence beats me: we find crustaceans to be extremely crucial to storytelling, in general. They relate to love, friendship, summer, packing and insanity. At Man Repeller, consider the lobster considered.

Need cool hair fast? Good thing we are trained professionals. If you have dry hair and 2 seconds: use your pinky. If you have wet hair and a bedtime: make like the ocean and wave. If you have 3 minutes, a dream, and a bead: camp out.

We have unanimously agreed that this video of Oprah releasing bees is the greatest video to exist on the Internet. Like Oprah’s yearly list of expensive soaps and cashmere throws, it is our favorite thing. In fact, her fist pump at the end has become MR’s Official Secret Handshake.

In the past year alone we have mentioned discos 10 times (two of which include Studio 54 references — and note that although we don’t say it, “disco” is largely implied in this image), NOT including the countless times the word “disco” is mentioned in your monthly horoscope round ups.

Proof is in the sequin:

More than once, Leandra has referred to Man Repeller as a nudist colony. To the untrained ear, this makes no sense. However! The Ancient Greeks exercised naked. “Gymnasium” comes from γυμνός (gymnos), which means “naked” in Ancient and Modern Greek. And we  — staunch in our plea that you stop wearing pants — are nothing if not a jungle gym for your wardrobe and brain.

Avocados cure writer’s block. The proof: we’ve published four different stories about avocados (see: dating, Tinder-ing, split ends, and Oprah) plus two different Dick-shun-ary definitions. Brain food.

Before you get your next bikini wax, think about the fact that women in 16th century aristocratic circles used to grow their pubic hair long, and adorn them with ribbons. Pass the glue gun.
