The World’s First Sex Robot Has Been Unveiled, And It Doesn’t Look Like Ann Curry…

January 11th, 2010 | 8 comments | Posted by Diana

…NOR was it invented by the Japanese!!!

She can't move her head, but sure does give great...

Roxxxy, the first functional sex robot with artificial intelligence, was unveiled by New Jersey-based creator TrueCompanion at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas over the weekend.

From Fox News:

“She can’t vacuum, she can’t cook but she can do almost anything else if you know what I mean,” Douglas Hines, the president of ROXXXY manufacturer TrueCompanion, told the AFP. “She’s a companion. She has a personality. She hears you. She listens to you. She speaks. She feels your touch. She goes to sleep. We are trying to replicate a personality of a person.”

Not to hate on a breakthrough, but we’re a little dissatisfied. Sure, a sex robot sounds great. But we couldn’t care less if our robot sleeps, feels our touch, or talks about her day. We want her to call us a stallion, screw us on demand, and occasionally cook us a lasagna. Is that too much to ask?

An AMAZIAN and His BABEWATCH: David Tran and Huy Fong Sriracha Sauce

May 26th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana


We were off the clock for Memorial Day yesterday, but simply couldn’t stop thinking about one rockin’ Amazian: David Tran, 64-year-old founder of Huy Fong and creator of its “rooster” sauce. Tran was profiled in last week’s NY Times in an article that described the sauce’s ubiquity (from four-star NYC kitchens to college apartment hovels to steamy bowls of Phở), as well as Tran’s incredulity regarding its success. Without him, we would not eat so well–and trust us, we know it.

But moving on, let us not ignore this hot-hot-hot Babe…


Name: Huy Fong Tướng Ớt Sriracha (aka Sriracha Chili Sauce)

Occupation: Hot-Ass Chili Sauce, suitable for everything

Why It’s A Babe: Because Huy Fong’s is the O.G. of Sriracha sauces, and makes everything from rice to soup to buffalo wings to panini to popcorn better. We love the bodacious, feminine bottle shape, the easy-twist green tip–and when we look at the saucy, bold, red coloring, we can only think of one word: yummy.

Most importantly, we find that Huy Fong Srircha makes everyone feel and act spicier; and if constant inspirasian towards spicy action doesn’t qualify one as a Babe, we really don’t know what does.
