Let’s get this out of the way: Betabrand calls its synthetic fleece Vagisoft. Yes, it’s material named after a woman’s privates. And yes, cofounder Chris Lindland is aware of the product’s Beavis & Butthead-ness and occasionally fields complaints from people who aren’t comfortable with the concept—despite the fact that Betabrand markets the resulting garments as “so ineffably comfy, test subjects had to be removed from them with the Jaws of Life.”

The surprising market for a fleece named after ladyparts

Puppies! The CIA! It’s a heart-warming combo.

The CIA has launched a re-vamped website, complete with a YouTube channel and Flickr photo stream, as well as games and an interactive timeline of the agency’s history.

“The idea behind these improvements is to make more information about the Agency available to more people, more easily,” Director Leon E. Panetta said. “The CIA wants the American people and the world to understand its mission and its vital role in keeping our country safe.”

Like the totally adorbs “CIA K-9 Cam,” which takes viewers on a kid-friendly video tour of the CIA headquarters with their specially-trained canines. “I search vehicles, buildings, and other areas for explosives,” says Bradley, an Explosive Detection Canine Officer—a black Lab with a voice like Dora the Explorer.

Never before has espionage seemed so adorable.
