Many groups lack privilege, here in the discriminatory Babylon that is the USA. But who lacks privilege the most? We aim to find out, as a service to the public. Only four groups remain in our Privilege Tournament. Hard choices await your vote, below.

For too long, "privilege" has been a vague and unquantifiable attribute. We aim to determine, democratically, who is the least privileged group of all. This is The Privilege Tournament, round three. The time to cast your vote is now.

The Privilege Tournament

Hamilton Nolan · 09/25/13 09:00AM

Privilege: so sweet to have. But even sweeter to not have. Privilege has its benefits, but the lack of privilege confers that sweet, sweet moral superiority. With that in mind, we have decided to determine who, exactly, has the least privilege of all.

When you think "binge eating," caviar is probably one of the last foods that comes to mind. But hey, competitive eating doesn't just have to be about pies and hot dogs.

Here Are Your Most Embarrassing Bar Mitzvah Photos

Leah Beckmann · 02/03/12 04:00PM

I asked you to immortalize your most embarrassing Bar Mitzvah photos by submitting them to this contest, and the results are in. On a side note: When my Dad saw the original post he was upset because he did not like that I was joking about my special day. Let it be known that I was not making fun of my Bat Mitzvah, or the Mitzvah tradition in general. I was celebrating what is truly a very special day in the lives of Hebe boys and girls- Men and Women- everywhere.

If you are anything like me, and I get the feeling that a lot of you are just like me, you are carefully crossing out everyday on your desk calendar as we edge slowly towards the March 23rd premiere of The Hunger Games. But waiting is a fool's game and fortunately for us, February has brought us both a second trailer and a chance to attend the premiere.

These Photos Do Not Count In Our Republican Bounty Contest

Jim Newell · 01/13/12 05:15PM

Touché to Michael, a.ka. commenter MichaelX, for his quick response to our Republican Primary Bounty List. He sent us several photos of Republican candidates getting makeup applied, and will be duly rewarded with a check for $22.75. But now that this loophole has been exploited once, we'll clarify the rules for all future submissions: We want your original photos of candidates in the compromising, humiliating positions listed, not professional photos that you might find on a simple Google Image search.

Chads Are the New Bros

Hamilton Nolan · 12/13/11 04:10PM

Many years from now, when you've settled down with a nice girl and stopped drinking the beer and being rowdy with the fellas and harassing bitches (but only the ones who wanted it), your young daughter, who was just perusing some old historical documents, will come to you and ask, with childlike wonder: "Daddy? What's a bro?"

This Guy Knows How to Throw a Yo-Yo

Lauri Apple · 10/03/11 07:49AM

Over the weekend the city of Chico, California hosted the U.S. National Yo-Yo Championships, just like it does every year, and there were winners! Nimble, lightning-fast winners, most of whom were male. In fact, only one woman competed in this year's contest: 19-year-old Ann Connolly, who won the "Best Girl Player" award. WTF, ladies? Stop having babies and get cracking on your Rock the Babies. Stop sleeping and start practicing your Reverse Sleepers. Let's estrogenize that thing next year.

Since this is Back to School time, we asked for all of your horror stories from those school days, school days, good old golden rule days. We were shocked by the number of gross, embarrassing, depressing, and hilarious tales that we got. But there can only be one winner.
