This was the week of the weird assault weapon. First, Hugh Jackman’s stalker attacked him with pubic hair, and now, an Australian woman is accused of a quiche assault.
Franklin Jane Bugmy allegedly became agitated when police showed up at her home to serve her with documents for a previous violence charge. She claimed they were the wrong documents and she wasn’t guilty. I’m having trouble following what exactly happened next. But in Bugmy’s words: “They’re saying I had room to move … I had no room to move. The quiche was thrown down to save my baby from tipping out of the pram.”
In what Bugmy claimed to be self-defense, the 41-year-old charged at the police officer with her stroller and threw a quiche in his face.
I think I need to start carrying more baked goods with me in case I get attacked. It seems like old bagels would be ideal. [Metro UK] [Quiche photo from Shutterstock]
This past weekend, Hugh Jackman was minding his own business, working out at his West Village gym when a crazy fan attacked him with her pubic hair.
Forty-seven-year-old Kathleen Thurston allegedly followed Jackman to the gym and managed to slip past security to throw an electric razor full of her pubes at him while screaming, “I love you!” (If a razor full of bush doesn’t show how much you care, I don’t know what does.) Keep reading »
Rosebud Perfume Co. makes the perfect balms for lips and dry skin. Smith’s Mocha Rose scented lip balm is a delicious way to sooth chapped skin this spring. It’s essential oil blend of mocha, vanilla, chocolate and a hint of rose will make you feel like you’re sipping iced coffee in your rose garden, preferably with someone you want to kiss. This is springtime activity I aspire to. [$5.59, Drugstore]
The boob tip of the day comes to us straight from a woman in San Francisco. When an argument over a parking spot in the Haight district escalated, the woman intentionally rammed her car into the man’s who would not let her have the parking spot. The woman, who was wearing a super, low-cut dress, drove away, leaving the man to deal with the accident. The victim remembered nothing. He didn’t know what kind of car she was driving, the license plate number or even what the woman looked like. He was, however, “able to give a detailed description of the suspect’s cleavage,” said the police. This is so good to know. When in doubt, use your boobs to detract from your bad behavior. I’m sure the victim will have plenty of fun picking boobs out of a police lineup. [Hypervocal] [Cleavage photo from Shutterstock]
French retailer Inderwear describe their String Latéral Flash Bleu Alter underwear as “original and ultra sexy” one-sided g-strings that provide “comfort and lateral support by the [fabric's] high elastane content.”
I would like to hear from the guys here. Is the one-sided banana hammock thong a comfortable cut? Just curious. I would like to go on record saying that if I undressed a man and he was wearing these, he would be my new hero. Guys, you can buy a pair here if you want to impress the special lady in your life. Just make sure she has a sophisticated sense of humor. [Laughing Squid]
“There comes some pressure in your mid-30s, and you think, Am I going to have kids so I don’t miss out on something that other people really seem to love? Or is it that I really genuinely want to do this with my whole heart? I didn’t feel that my response was ‘yes’ to the latter. You have to really want to have kids, and neither of us did. So it’s just going to be me and Ellen and no babies — but we’re the best of friends and married life is blissful, it really is. I’ve never been happier than I am right now.”
–Portia de Rossi talks to Out Magazine about her decision not to become a mother. I like the distinction between not wanting to miss out and actually wanting to become a parent. I think it’s a smart one. I should probably start asking myself the same questions. Nah. I’ll put it off a while longer and think instead about the new season of “Arrested Development.” May 26th, baby. [DListed]
Gasoline huffing has become a serious problem for brown bears living on the Kronotsky Nature Reserve in Russia. The bear population has gotten into the kerosene and gasoline, which is used to power the reserve’s helicopters and generators, and have become addicted. The 1,200 pound creatures have taken to stealing fuel barrels, sniffing them until they get woozy and digging holes to pass out in.
Photographer Igor Shpilenok spent seven months documenting these bears and captured them in various stages gasoline use. According to Shpilenok, some of the bears have become so hard up to feed their addiction that they stalk departing helicopters so they can sniff the fumes at takeoff. That sounds like rock bottom to me. Maybe Jeff VanVonderen or Candy Finnigan can help. No bear deserves to live that way. [The Fixx] [Photo credit: Igor Shpilenok]
After 20 years of trying to pluck, tweeze, laser and wax the facial hair that appeared after the birth of her son, 49-year-old Mariam finally decided to stop trying to hide her whiskers and let them grow. While unemployed and living alone, she decided to experiment with growing her beard.
“When I decided to let it grow it didn’t feel brave, it was more like a curiosity. I wanted to see what would happen to me. There was a big fear that everyone would turn away and nobody would talk to me anymore,” the bearded lady said during a recent appearance on the UK’s “This Morning.” Keep reading »
Dear Luo Dan,
I want to tell you that I’m feeling you wearing this deer head mask every day for the last four years. You started wearing it while you were making your art because it make you feel peaceful (no surprise that you’re a painter) and eventually, got used to wearing it and started to wear it all the time.
“The deer is a tame animal … Wearing its mask, I could find a long-missing inner peace. When I wear the mask, I feel I am a deer from within,” you said. Keep reading »
