Pooches Throw Their Own Halloween Parade

Anyone with four legs, fur, and a waggy tail knew the place to be yesterday was the Tompkins Square Park dog run in New York City. Canines of all sizes and breeds showed up to the annual parade (with varying levels of shame) in their Halloween costumes. Highlights included appearances by Michael Phelps, Nastia Liukin, Queen Elizabeth, Oscar the Grouch, and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man!

Debate of 2008: Lindsay Lohan’s Boobs

Another day, another debate. While yesterday’s may have been of the political sort, today’s is of the anatomical. The argument lies beneath Lindsay Lohan‘s tank top. Photos taken of her shopping yesterday (seen above) displayed a balloon shape uncharacteristic of natural breasts. After further analysis (see photos below), the jury’s out. So we at Scandalist call on you, fellow Americans, to stare at Lindsay’s knockers… are they real or fake?
