You thought you had a bad prom? These Wisconsin teens lined up on a pier to take those awkward pre-prom photos. Then they heard a cracking sound … and the pier gave way, dumping everyone in the lake. I bet all the parents who paid for $300 prom dresses, hair and nail appointments were pissed.

Meet SHIRI, the Japanese butt robot. She’s legless and headless, but seems to enjoy a sensual massage to the silicon skin covering her posterior.

Those little tramps are at it again. The nefarious-cookie sellers are trying to pull a fast one on us! The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has launched an official inquiry on the Girl Scouts out of concern that scouting materials contain links to other groups like Oxfam, the Sierra Club, and Doctors Without Borders, which support family planning and contraception.

Nevertheless, those tenuous links to the Girl Scouts are “problematic,” say the bishops.
