Billy Corgan probably didn’t have this in mind. Or maybe he did.

In any case, filmmaker Devin Graham brings us — just in time for Halloween — the real thing: smashing pumpkins.

Chris “The Dutchess” Walton Makes Guinness Book Of World Records With Longest Fingernails

It takes a newborn baby 18 years to grow into adulthood. And it took Chris “The Dutchess” Walton just as long to grow her record-setting fingernails to 19 feet, 9 inches long.

“The hardest thing for me to do is dig in my pockets,” the 45-year-old rock singer from Las Vegas says. “Everything else I can do myself — driving, shopping, cleaning the house … although when I vacuum, the cord gets tangled in my fingers.”

A day before the release of the 2012 Guinness World Records, The Dutchess visited The Huffington Post to talk about her life and celebrate her inclusion in this year’s edition — a celebration of “unique beauty,” including fresh pictures of the world’s longest tongue, the largest afro, and a “holy man” with 453 piercings.

“I never set out to make it into Guinness,” she says. “It just happened.” Read more… Keep reading »

A baby pig in northern China is hogging all the attention in his litter — mainly because he has two snouts.

The two-snouted pig was born in Deshengtang, Jilin province, northern China, and was named “Xiaobao,” which translates roughly into “Babe,” the name of the famous movie character, according to the West Australian.

But while the duo-nosed porker is getting lots of public attention, his owner, farmer Li Zhenjun, says Babe hasn’t been able to pig out very much. Read more and check out more photos… Keep reading »

Ever get pissed off at an uncooperative ATM? We do all the time. Ever start smashing it with your high heel? Uh, neither have we.

But a very angry British woman did, reports the Telegraph, and it’s all caught on tape.

The “as yet unexplained attack” (the Telegraph‘s words, not ours) occurred last night in the rather proper-sounding British town of Chippenham at around midnight. When the woman’s attempts to get cash from the machine failed, she took off her heel and start hitting the ATM about 50 times. Read more… Keep reading »

PETA confirmed the XXX site in a phone interview with The Huffington Post.
