While nothing about a murder case is funny, the idea of the Supreme Court discussing a chocolate penis and a pair of tits does kind of make me chuckle. So why would they be discussing such things? The court just heard an appeal for Georgia death row inmate Marcus Wellons, who was sentenced in 1993 for raping and killing a 15-year-old. Horrible. But, apparently, some strange things were going on behind the scenes of the trial—the judge not only took the jurors out to a restaurant, but after Wellons was convicted, the jurors sent the judge, a woman, the aforementioned choco-c**k. They sent the choco-boobs to the chief bailiff on the case. Wellons’ lawyers said that someone needs to investigate what went on outside of the court room to make these gifts even semi-appropriate. Since Wellons is black, the lawyers think the gifts could be “evidence of the jury’s racial bias.” The Supreme Court agreed and sent the case back to the lower courts for reopening. Who knew chocolate genitalia could have such an impact? Something to think about at your next bachelorette party. [Newser, LA Times] Keep reading »
Do you believe in psychics? Forty-one-year-old hairdresser Susan Herdman most certainly does. The U.K. woman decided to see a tarot card reader to see what 2010 might bring for her. The psychic’s prediction? Wealth and good fortune in 2010. Sounds a little vague to me … but Susan, a believer, was confident that the prophecy would come to fruition. Two weeks ago, she even updated her Facebook status to read, “I’m going to win the lottery!” I’m imagining her friends’ reactions: “Ha! Keep on dreaming you crazy bat!” But Susan is the one laughing now, all the way to the bank. This past Saturday, Susan hit it rich when she matched all six lotto numbers, scoring herself a cool million. “I felt shocked for a moment, but it’s all sunk in quite quickly because I always believed I would win,” said Susan. Now she plans to go on vacation, pay off her mortgage, and maybe pick up a new BMW. I plan to go see a tarot card reader and force them to predict that I too will win the lottery. Do you think that will work? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
I’m counting down the days until April 13, 2010, aka the day my new television guilty pleasure “Glee” returns with new episodes. Will Emma and Will finally get it on? What about Rachel and Finn? And what about Quinn and Puck’s love child? As if we weren’t excited enough already, the little gossip birdies are starting to chirp about possible guest stars for next season. Let’s just say that that creator Ryan Murphy has been talking to “How I Met Your Mother” star Neil Patrick Harris and sources say he may be breaking out his jazz shoes for a little song and dance, gleek-style.

After the jump, some more possible “Glee” guest appearances that we’re stoked about. Keep reading »
Nothing evokes the sexy nostalgic hotness of a man quite like a faded sepia photograph or an oil-on-canvas portrait. Is it just me or are ascots and epithets kind of a turn-on? Before Joseph Stalin was starting a Cold War, he was busy being really hot. This is him circa 1902. Whoa! Who knew he was so fine before he was a dictator? Young Stalin inspired me to do a little more research into the sexiest men of days of yore. After the jump, check out some more historical hotties. I think history is my new favorite subject.
