This Or That: What Happened This Week

A lot of stuff happened this week. Celebrities did weird things, new and sometimes pointless studies came out… and this weekend, we celebrated two things: the Kentucky Derby (well, I didn’t participate in these activities, but I’m sure some of you did) and Cinco De Mayo.

We want to know what you guys think about some of the biggest news from this week, whether it’s body stuff or celebs. Take the This or That polls to fill us in:
