Help FIPS Win A Free Breast Milk Baby Doll

How can it be that NOBODY in greater Park Slope is stocking the newly released Breast Milk Baby Doll, the much anticipated US release of the world's FIRST breastfeeding doll?

So hard to choose from the six ethnically diverse dollies!

Via Gothamist comes the news that the recession generation (or whatever the current crop of graduates is called) are returning home in droves. Like nearly ALL of them. 85% of college seniors are expected to move back home after graduation. Wow and shit. 

Can you sue colleges for misrepresentation? Because seriously, what has that nosebleed inspiring college education done for you lately? 

But Forbes has your back, with their year-old but still relevant feature article, "How to Avoid Living At Home After College." Their tips:

WHO GIVES A SHIT: Sex Ed?

Oh my poor little tween (and not just because I'm clearly an embarrassment). I was wondering how he knew so much about sperm counts and my last case of PMS, and then I happened upon the diagram above on my dining room table yesterday, and all became clear.
