The Amish are a generally quiet folk not known for crimes and misdemeanors. But one Amish community in Ohio is in turmoil after six women and 10 men have gone on a beard-cutting spree. Yes, beard-cutting. Amish men sport famously long beards in accordance with the Bible, which they say decrees that a man must stop shearing his facial scruff after marriage. But 16 Amish folks who are reportedly having “religiously-motivated” disputes over church discpline with the people they assault are snipping off beards with hoarse shears, scissors, and battery-powered clippers.

Abortion. Marriage equality. Health care reform. There are oh-so-many things that Democrats and Republicans do not agree on. But one thing we can all agree on is that every lady needs a little battery-operated something-something. That’s where Toys In Babeland’s newest toy, the Bipartisan Bunny vibrator, comes in. Priced at $114 and available next week, the Bipartisan Bunny comes in two modes, Red and Blue, which are pre-programmed with different saucy sayings. The Red mode says: “I’ll make you scream louder than a Fox News talk show host,” “A little lower please, and I mean lower than a billionaire’s tax rate,” “Drill, baby, drill,” and “Oh yeah, baby, just like a filibuster.” The Blue mode says: “We can do this together, yes, we can,” “A little more to the left, oh yeah, there, that’s it,” “Orgasms for all,” and “Occupy me.” Let’s forget for a moment that talking vibrators should not become a thing and give thanks to the folks at Babeland for their, uh, bipartisan support.

If not, then there are people in China who boil chicken eggs in the urine of little boys. And. Then. Eat. Them.
I’m not quite sure I agree with Buzzfeed’s headline that “virgin boy eggs,” as they are called, are a “popular” snack in China, as this is the first I’ve ever heard of them. But apparently boys under the age of 10 — just boys — urinate in buckets at primary schools in Dongyang, China, and the urine is then used to cook chicken eggs. Locals claim urine-soaked, hard-boiled eggs “have miraculous properties” by promoting better blood circulation.
Chinese medical experts suggest the process is unsanitary. You know who doesn’t agree with them? This lady. [Buzzfeed]
