Hamilton Nolan · 11/28/12 04:18PM

Tyler Brule [imagine several accent marks on last name], the editor of Monocle magazine, that bedrock of ""lifestyle sensuality and gaywad uptightness," is well known for being "cool," in the sense of "not cool."

Won't You Take a Whiff of Jessica Simpson's New, 'Fart-Proof' Perfume?

Kyle Buchanan · 09/15/08 06:20PM

Apparently Jessica Simpson is still doing... things... and one of those things is a new perfume scent, maybe? That's the story she told Rachael Ray, and it seems plausible enough, though we're a little more skeptical of the singer's insistence that she's "completely" in charge of making the product ("Vanilla bean smells completely different than vanilla. It's really weird!"). Still, her unenthused patter briefly comes alive when Ray spritzes some "Fancy" (it is called this) into the air, causing Simpson to point out the perfume's unique bonus: the ability to queef in an elevator without anyone being the wiser. Ladies, do not try this at home. [Rachael Ray]
