Republican state Rep. Vito Barbieri appeared to be schooled on female genitalia Monday during a committee meeting about a bill that would restrict how women get abortion-inducing drugs.

In the clip he seems to be bit confused about how vaginas work. Fortunately, There’s a Swedish children’s song that might help him out.

Dr. Julie Madsen was in the middle of her testimony discussing colonoscopies via pill camera, when Barbieri posed his unusual question.

“Can this same procedure then be done in a pregnancy? Swallowing a camera and helping the doctor determine what the situation is?” he asked.

Madsen was very polite in her response, noting that pills don’t typically end up in one’s v@gina.

In follow-up interviews, however, Berbieri clarifies that he was just being “rhetorical’ and that he probably could have made that more clear. You think?

Unlike every movie critic on Earth, Newt Gingrich has found something to cling to after watching the box office flop "London Has Fallen." In a recent tweet, which has now garnered some INCREDIBLE reactions, Newt wants us all to take notes on the seriousness of the political-action drama.

Sorry, Newt. You're going to have to do better than that to get anyone to willingly watch a Gerard Butler movie.

Meet Julie Bishop, Minister for Foreign Affairs and human emoji.

During an interview with Bishop on the Today show in Australia this week, host Karl Stefanovic brought up news that Governor-General Peter Cosgrove’s staff wanted a $2000 Thermomix for their kitchen.

He then asked Bishop if she knew what a Thermomix was. (It’s an expensive device that both heats and mixes food at the same time.)

“I’m going to answer in emoji,” she said, going on to make a weird face.

Well played. But which emoji was she impersonating?

As if the president's selfies weren't enough, it became very apparent to those in the international sign language community that this interpreter here was basically just making things up on the fly and foregoing that whole "interpreting" (or "making sense") thing entirely.

Rep. Don Young of Alaska certainly has problems, but wolves aren’t one of them.

At a House Natural Resources Committee hearing this week, Young was complaining about how members of Congress were rallying together to help protect the gray wolf, when they don’t have to deal with them on a regular basis like he does.

“How many of you have got wolves in your district?” he asked. “None. None. Not one.”

And then, likely due to a full moon, he offered up this completely insane proposal.

“I’d like to introduce them to your district,” he said. “You wouldn’t have a homeless problem anymore.”

A spokesperson for Young later clarified to the Washington Post that the “analogy was purposely hyperbolic to stress the point that these predators pose serious threats to wildlife management and their listing has damaging impacts to local communities.”

Alaska has “the largest remaining population of gray wolves in the United States,” according to Defenders of Wildlife.

Though the shirt has been removed from their site (or sold out), Urban Outfitters got into hot water this weekend for this stained and damaged "vintage" Kent State sweater. The historically-minded among you will recognize Kent State as the site of a Vietnam War protest in 1970 that ended with the police shooting of four student protesters.

Urban Outfitters claims that the item's appearance is due to aging, stains, and miscoloration, though obviously it looks more than a little like the violent aftermath of the protest itself. Their official statement on the sweater doesn't help their case much:



TL;DR: Company known for ripping off art designs, pandering to bratty youths, and doing attention-grabbing things to gain publicity among other attention-grabbing bratty youths acts according to form. Carry on.

Between drunk Secret Service agents and Eleanor Holmes Norton, maybe we need to give all of Washington a refresher course in how to drive.

The D.C. delegate tried and failed to park her car outside the U.S. Capitol Wednesday, and the mess was all captured in the video above.

“If she parks like that she should not be a member of Congress anymore,” says one of the people watching the disaster.

In addition to being completely out of alignment with the rest of the vehicles, she apparently banged into the car next to her multiple times during the half-hour long debacle. Eventually she and her aide just walk away as if it’s all NBD.

Her office later told Roll Call that there were no damages and they left a card on the windshield so they could contact them.

Not sure that warrants the “worst parking job ever” award – a quick YouTube search reveals much worse – but it’s certainly up there in the rankings.

And Mr. Piggly Wiggly is theclear winner for recent parking lot fails. That one will be tough to beat.

A California Congresswoman Ended Her Argument With an Attempt at "The Dab" That Will Make You Cringe

During a debate Rep. Loretta Sanchez closed her argument by dabbing. She might as well have started off her speech with "How do you do, fellow kids?" It was not cool, and most of the internet collectively recoiled in embarrassment for her. AND NOW YOU CAN TOO!

The Best Memes & Tweets About Four Seasons Total Landscaping

If you haven't been living under a rock for the past week, you're probably familiar with the Four Seasons Total Landscaping drama that occurred earlier this week in Philadelphia. On November 7th, President Trump tweeted that a press conference would be held at the Four Seasons in the Pennsylvania capital. Eight minutes later, Trump tweeted an update - that the conference would actually be taking place at Four Seasons Total Landscaping in the same city. 

The tweets led to a great deal of speculation as to whether the administration had intended to book the hotel. The speculation grew when it became clear that the location, between a sex shop and a crematorium, was probably not their first choice. After Rudy Giuliani spoke to crowds about voter fraud, and even used a convicted sex offender as a witness, the occasion was largely seen as a massive blunder. And as expected, the memes began flowing freely. We've put together some of our favorite examples from the last week, but we're willing to bet this press conference will be talked about for quite a while. Here's hoping Four Seasons Total Landscaping is enjoying the free publicity.
