I like to imagine that there’s a thinktank group at Hershey that’s just a group of 10 year old boys coming up with all sorts of things like “A Hershey chocolate facial”, soon to be followed up next year with a new ice cream topping called Hershey Squirts. Anyway, yes, this is a real product. A Hershey chocolate facial. I wouldn’t google for it, because lord knows what box of depraved Japanese perversity you might open.

PSA of the Day: Pfizer has issued a recall notice for over 1 million birth control pill packets — marketed by Akrimax Rx Products in the US — because they may inadvertently raise the risk of pregnancy.
According to the pharmaceutical company, the recall applies to packets that were accidentally shipped with too many or too few active tablets. The imbalance in proper dosage of the drugs is not dangerous, but may elevate the chance a woman taking these pill would become pregnant.
Pfizer says the root cause of the mixup was both mechanical and QA-related. A spokeswoman assured customers it has been since sorted out.
This recall could not come at a worse time for Pfizer, which just today announced a decline in fourth-quarter profits, which it attributes to generic alternatives for their best-selling products.
To see if your packet of Pfizer birth-control pills is being recalled, review the list of lot numbers on the FDA website.
This feels coincidentally on point with the days’ news, and I think I now have a good defense for that chick that says I’m a baby daddy. #notmyfaultSource: thedailywhat
The Susan G. Komen Foundation is a fund-raising behemoth. The charity, which is perhaps best known for its breast-cancer runs, has long been synonymous with concern for women’s health. And, until today, with concern for women’s reproductive health: The foundation was closely allied with Planned Parenthood, and gave hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of funding, most of which went directly to providing breast exams. But now the Komen Foundation is cutting ties with Planned Parenthood, reports the Associated Press, in what looks like a clearly political move.
Komen spokeswoman Leslie Aun said the cutoff results from the charity’s newly adopted criteria barring grants to organizations that are under investigation by local, state or federal authorities. According to Komen, this applies to Planned Parenthood because it’s the focus of an inquiry launched by Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., seeking to determine whether public money was improperly spent on abortions.
Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, has depicted Stearns’ probe as politically motivated and said she was dismayed that it had contributed to Komen’s decision to halt the grants to PPFA affiliates.
“It’s hard to understand how an organization with whom we share a mission of saving women’s lives could have bowed to this kind of bullying,” Richards told The Associated Press. “It’s really hurtful.”
The left is, predictably, pretty upset. Amanda Marcotte, for instance, pointed out that the foundation recently hired an anti-abortion VP of public policy. “Susan G. Komen: comprehensive health care advocacy on behalf of some women. The sort that don’t rely on Planned Parenthood,” tweeted Rebecca Traister, while Joan Walsh added, “The Komen Foundation just destroyed its brand, and it’s going to be very, very sorry.”
This is the sort of thing we can’t allow. That’s a whole group of women now that will have to rely on celibacy, which makes my job THAT much harder.Source: siddman
