By day, she’s a certified nursing assistant in Griffin, Georgia, but by night, Phyllis, a grandmother in her 60s, has a shocking secret: She’s addicted to doll collecting.
She has more than 50,000 of them, according to the A&E series, “Hoarders,” which featured Phyllis on the season premiere episode that aired on June 20. Her explanation for keeping the dolls — which are in varying degrees of decay and shabbiness — is simple.
“When I see their sweet little faces, it makes me happy,” she said. “I don’t collect them because they’re valuable. I just like their company.” Read more… Keep reading »
There have been a lot of crazy crimes but this one is completely nuts: a Michigan woman is under investigation for assault, because she mailed a letter coated with peanut butter to her ex-husband, whose new wife just happens to have a peanut allergy.
The wife with the goober allergy picked up the letter soaked with oil in her Battle Creek, Mich mailbox only to see a warning scrawled on the envelope that it contained peanut butter, the Battle Creek Enquire reported.
Reports didn’t indicate if it was a chunky or smooth spread smeared on the letter. Read more… Keep reading »
Next time Susan Pollock needs to cool off, she should head to a nude beach instead of the city park.
The 44-year-old woman was charged with indecent exposure after police in Mesa, Ariz., claim they found her sleeping naked on a park bench near an empty bottle of vodka, the East Valley Tribune reported.
A father and his three children spotted Pollock taking her siesta around 5:30 p.m. She smelled of alcohol and was wearing nothing but a T-shirt rolled up above her breasts, the Arizona Republic reported. Read more… Keep reading »
Conceptual artist Cherry Tree has a scent of mystery about her. And the smell of urine. Her urine. And it’s intentional.
For the last five years, Tree, who splits time between Missouri and Spain, has been turning her own urine into perfume.
“I am very much into recycling,” Tree, born Charity Blansit, told AOL Weird News. “And urine is something I’ve thought needs to be recycled, since it’s something that gets eliminated.” Read more… Keep reading »
Don’t these people have pockets?
Police in Florida say they have recovered a marijuana pipe and a woman’s identity from the body cavities of suspects arrested in separate incidents earlier this month.
Deputies from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office busted 46-year-old Ann Hernandez for making over $5,000 of purchases using a fraudulent credit card and another woman’s driver’s license — both of which were found in the suspect’s vagina. Read more… Keep reading »
A 17-year-old high school student from a Chicago suburb was arrested Monday for allegedly creating and distributing a list of 50 classmates ranked in terms of their sexual desirability.
To be sure, it must have been humiliating for these girls to be derided with nicknames like “Fallen Angel,” “Blond Bombshell” and “The Hangover” — and to have their body parts and supposed level of promiscuity rated on a 10-point ranking system — while the lunchroom gang howled in amusement.
But as troubling as these accusations are, could a charge of misdemeanor disorderly conduct, which the boy now faces, possibly stick? Not according to one expert. Read more… Keep reading »
When Karen Butler meets new people, they often ask her where she’s from. And the answer — Newport, Oregon — usually surprises them. Why? Butler speaks with what sounds like an Irish accent. But she didn’t acquire it from spending time across the Atlantic. She picked it up at the dentist’s office.
Speaking about her medical oddity on a “Today Show” segment, Butler explained that she went in for a surgical procedure about a year and a half ago. The funny voice she was speaking with immediately after seemed to just be par for the course, right along with the swelling and soreness. But as time went on and she healed from the surgery, her body returned to normal and the voice didn’t go away. Read more… Keep reading »
Lady Gaga may have shocked the world recently when she appeared in public with what looked like horns sticking out of her face and shoulders, but she’s actually just horning in on an existing — and, so far, very underground — trend.
Gaga recently appeared in Harper’s Bazaar magazine looking as if she had horns sticking out of her face. Although she said the so-called horns were her real bones, and she had merely been “waiting for the right time to reveal to the universe” who she truly is, some experts are skeptical.
New York plastic surgeon Dr. Barry M. Weintraub has analyzed pictures of the singer and believes her new protuberances are not surgically implanted. Read more… Keep reading »
For seven years, Roger Huang, a pastor who runs a rescue mission in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district, has been trying to shut down the sex shops there. This week he may have seen a sign that his efforts are working.
On Wednesday, a man burst into flames while inside one of those porn shops, police said.
Could this bizarre incident be attributed to a higher power? Read more… Keep reading »
Apparently, being master of your domain isn’t all that it’s hyped up to be. Researchers say that for sufferers of the neurological disorder restless legs syndrome, a little self-pleasure could be just what the doctor ordered.
In a recent letter published by the medical journal Sleep Medicine, Luis Marin and colleagues at the Federal University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, report the case of a patient who, with masturbation and sexual intercourse, eased the symptoms of his RLS.
“The patient reported that he would get complete relief from RLS symptoms, granting him normal sleep following sexual intercourse or masturbation,” the letter read. Read more… Keep reading »
