Très Click: Penises! Now That We’ve Got Your Attention, Read This Link Round-Up

Video Chat Karaoke Episode 9: Tavi Gevinson – ‘You Belong With Me’ (Taylor Swift)
Tavi wears black lipstick and lip synchs to Taylor Swift because of course she does. BRB, buying black lipstick.

6 Weird Fashions From History (With Weirder Explanations)
All fashion statements have one of three explanations. It’s either a reflection of wealth and status, something completely practical and functional, or small penises. Okay, fine, two explanations.

What We Read At Lollapalooza
Lollapalooza was a weekend of music, sure, but apparently it was also “a weekend awash in competitive irony.” The Awl has a round-up of the “best” T-shirts seen there and of course by “best” I mean “most ridiculous.” I’m really impressed by the guy wearing a shirt that compares the smell of his dick to chapstick. Of course by “really impressed” I mean BRB, going to vomit.

@CondeElevator
The Conde Nast Elevator Twitter account is dead, but the absurdity it captured will live on forever. My personal favorite was: “[silence] [silence] [silence] [silence] [silence] [silence] [silence] [silence] Summer Intern: “Was that…?” Intern #2: “Yeah” #annawintour”. RIP Conde Nast Elevator.

Nine Excerpts From The August 2011 Issue Vogue, Presented Without Comment
Even though Conde Elevator is no more, we can still LOL at Anna Wintour’s expense. Our hilarious web editor, Anna Fitzpatrick, presents a few of the more ridiculous excerpts on The Hairpin. I’ll never look at my earlobes or a Jell-O shot the same way again.

  2. I spent 20 minutes staring at this post in the drafts wondering if I was reading it wrong. Or could it just be an honest mistake? When I couldn’t think of any other words that look and sound the same but have different letters, I just gave up. #becauseiamacopyeditor #professional

  3. I’m going to ignore the giant penis (peni, how do you pluralize penis?) in the room and talk about Tavi’s videochat Karaoke. And what I’m going to say is that there needs to be more recording ourselves lip-syncing to songs we pretend we don’t love. Lets do it Wornettes!
