January finally started to usher in the fizzle on #metoo.

January finally started to usher in the fizzle on #metoo.

We might have kicked off this month mumbling along to Auld Lang Syne, but how did the rest of January shakeout? Grab yourself a glass of raw water and let’s find out.

For starters, Egypt tried to boost their fertility numbers by using the dead, and Canada is working overtime to make canoeing fun again.

We slipped on our Dear Leader shades to fend off the glare of Nivea’s ultra-white marketing, and talked a little tattoo legalese.

Our Memory Lane Mondays covered various listings from our PD Book Club pick Rules of Civility and Decent Behavior in Company and Conversation including keeping a killer manicure, how to sus out fake news, and not celebrating the downfall of others.

A lot of credence was given to decorative slap this month, from Claire’s ingredients, Tarte’s foundation, and now Jeffree Star calling out Walmart and taking fake cosmetics to task.

Hard Candy Cosmetics decided to let go of their attempt to patent #metoo just as marchers decided to ditch their pussyhats, and female-only transport really took off.

Scott Jordan outed himself as candidate for Douchebag of the Year, H&M was ransacked in South Africa, and Jamaica was blackballed by the US, UK, and Canada.

All in all…

While the US Government even discussing taking over 5G is chilling enough, the story that left us most shaken comes from the Californian couple that kept their 13 children tied to their beds, torturing and starving them.

The media wanted to make sure you knew that the couple also had two Maltese-mix pups, that are well-behaved, and you guessed it, leash trained.
