Mike Stone, an 18-year-old high school student, landed his dream date for prom. The Minnesota teen launched a Twitter campaign to try to get adult film star Megan Piper to accompany him to the big dance. Megan agreed under the condition that Mike cover her travel. But the faculty did not agree. District officials claim that Megan’s presence at the prom “would violate school policies pertaining visitors.” Mike is devastated, Megan is “not thrilled” but understands and Mike’s parents are furious about being publicly “embarrassed.” Twitter followers have launched the hashtag #Porn4prom to overturn the school’s decision, but I don’t think that’s happening. The principal advised Mike to pick another date.
I think I actually agree with the principal on this one. As a former teacher, I know that you have to be very careful about what you endorse — or at least appear to endorse. Even if you’re not directly saying, “Hey kids, it’s cool for you to look at porn.” A “yes” to a porn star at prom can be construed as an endorsement. And remember, many the students are likely under the age of 18. Sorry Mike, you may want to try going to prom with someone a little bit less provocative. [NY Daily News]
My mom often sends me texts alerting me to new beauty products I “need to try ASAP.” Often times, the sense of urgency is a tad overdone. But the S.O.S. to try Colgate Optic White was warranted. This toothpaste uses deep whitening technology to dramatically whiten your pearly whites in just one week, and more dramatically over time. The enamel-safe formula removes coffee, wine or whatever kinds of stains from the surface of your teeth. God, I sound like a toothpaste commercial. Blah blah blah BEST TOOHTPASTE IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. But … I swear! My grill was gleaming after just one brush with the miracle paste. It was like my smile needed a sound effect. I’m off to go buy a lifetime supply. I suggest you do the same.
According to OK! Magazine’s expose on Angelina Jolie’s “bad parenting,” her household is the equivalent of a “an absolute zoo.” “Insiders,” whomever they may be, feel that we should be very concerned about the health, hygiene and safety of the Jolie-Pitt brood. The outlandish accusations after the jump. Keep reading »
This triple banana is winning. I know “winning” is a played out catchphrase at this point, but if “Bachelorette” Courtney can use it in reference to Ben Boring Flajnik, than I can use it in reference to this fabulous fruit mutation. Seriously, how did this happen? And will it ever happen again? I would really like to slice this beast and put it in my cereal. Dream breakfast. [Boing Boing]
Last night, TLC’s “My Crazy Obsession” took us inside Stanley’s world. It’s a world of diapers, baby powder, onsies, pacifiers and bottles. The 31-year-old is proud to to call himself an adult baby for the last 18 years. He gets satisfaction from acting like a toddler up to eight hours a day and says, “It’s not sexual.” Although there are people who do baby role playing in a sexual way, Stanley’s more into crib toys than sex toys. Sadly, he says this obsession stems from an abusive childhood, and the adult baby role play helps him feel the safety he didn’t feel as a child. Much like the urine drinker on “My Strange Addiction,” it felt vaguely exploitative to watch Stanley get burped and swaddled. I felt almost too uncomfortable to watch. I hope in addition to seeking an “adult baby mommy” that he’ll find the help he needs to feel safe and cared for in the world. Like, without giant diapers.
I had a good chuckle over Made Man’s list of Things Science Says Women Love. Apparently we are all suckers for homosexual men who look like our dads and don’t smile. Thanks, science! Oh, the image I’m conjuring right now is unsettling. Anyhow … I felt inspired to roundup a few of the things science says men love. Click through to find out what they are.
