Adorable ’90s Pop Culture-Inspired Lip Art

Laura Jenkinson’s adorable lip art, which we first spotted on Ego-AlterEgo, is giving us all of the nostalgic feels.

Robert Durst Is Not the Lead Singer of Limp Bizkit: Links You Need to See

By

Everyone who’s been following The Jinx — or the controversy surrounding its recent revelation — now knows that Robert Durst (not to be confused with lead singer of Limp Bizkit) has not only been arrested by authorities, but is facing a charge of first degree murder after his sensational admission of guilt on television. Murder isn’t funny, but the way he got caught is ridiculous, and this parody of the confession shows us why.
