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 »

What do you think a “swofty” is? Hint: it’s not a new Dairy Queen dessert or some dirty sexual term. OK, I’ll tell you. A “swofty” is the new term for single women over 50 who are more likely to be out at a nightclub, flirting, than at home knitting their grandchildren sweaters. According to a new study, “swofties” are on the rise. The results show that the more than 600,000 mature females in the U.K. who are spinsters, widows or divorcees are happier than ever. More than 50 percent of the women surveyed say that they are content to live by themselves, 17 percent said they were dating, 20 percent reported having a rocking social life, and one-fifth are regulars on Facebook and Twitter. Sounds like old is the new young. Get ready to go clubbing with granny! [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
