Lip Service is a term dating back to the 1600s, defined as an avowal of advocacy, adherence or allegiance expressed in words, but NOT backed by deeds. In other words, talking a whole ‘lotta smack and doing nothing about it. Well, not in this century—we are turning this term around!

So, we can’t launch our site without a little party music to welcome us, so we chose to let “Uncle Luke” do the honors. Don’t worry, the version is PG-13 and all in good fun!
But since Lip Service: News With Attitude loves to learn from past mistakes, after looking at the video, ladies remember — it is not appropriate to gyrate on the side of a pool in a bikini and sneakers. But hey– it was the 90s!
