Did you know that Man Repeller has Snapchat? Oh yeah, baby. Follow us: man_repeller (don’t forget that underscore — it’s like the Dr. Scholl’s of punctuation). And if you’re reading this to your parents and they’re like, “What’s Snapchat,” take a deep breath and let this be your guide.
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.
If ball is life, food is love. Or we’re just always hungry, because our favorite metaphors for fashion/romance/life all involve food. Proof in the pudding: clothes don’t rot, guys are avocados, foodies have made dating more complicated, this literal approach and Cronuts as they relate to millennials.
We’ve mentioned Drake enough times on this site to fill the entire first page of Google if you search “Man Repeller Drake.” This includes the time we tried to get him to give us a compliment. Can you blame us? He’s the man.
Pro tip: if you do not feel like answering emails for any reason whatsoever, set your away message now, select “delete all,” and then play dumb. If your boss is confused because she/he can literally see you at your desk picking your nose, tell her you have a severe case of seesaw leg which renders you unable to type. You might get fired but at least you have us.
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. (Share amongst yourself, Repellers.)
A fun Man Repeller fact: we are disco obsessed. 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:
Human Disco Balls in Paris (Self-explanatory one, there.)
And finally, 12 Alternative Balls to Attend Instead of the Met Gala.
Told you, John Travolta.
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.
A little-known fact about the Tequila Diet: its inevitable side effect — being drunk — proved a worthy companion in the production of five different historically-based fashion stories on MR; ruffles, turtlenecks, mutton chops, holiday sequins and men’s socks were all written with a cool buzz.
Leandra recently instructed readers to stop wearing pants. While 89% of you took this with a grain of interpretive salt, April police reports indicate that 11% took this information literally. To the 11% of brave Donald Duckers mooning in the wild: we salute you.
Three Italian chefs will come to your house for the 72 hours it takes to make the world’s most expensive pizza, which costs a whopping $12,000. The slice is topped with lobster, caviar, buffalo mozzarella and hand-picked sea salt. Chew on that.
Many anthropologists believe that frenching originates from a process called “kiss feeding,” used by mothers who would chew their food before passing it to their infants’ mouths.
