Ladies, if you insist on getting plastic surgery, please make sure that your doctor is properly licensed and legit. Because unfortunately, there are predatory fake doctors out there, and they will put some crazy things up your butt if you let them. Like transgendered woman Oneal Ron Morris (pictured), who for the low, low, low price of $700 offered one woman a butt implant. Sure, said the as-yet-unidentified victim, who probably looked at Morris’ own very large derriere and liked the results. Keep reading »

Your boyfriend’s Cocksox are very important to him. Just like your Wonderbra, he says, his Cocksox does the critical work of lifting and displaying his magnificent penis, for all the world to see. Echoing the words of Cocksox creative director Nadiah Kanawaty, Cocksox allow your boyfriend to go about his day with a “sexy secret” in his trousers. Of course, there was the disturbing incident at the playground, where your boyfriend’s Cocksox lead to some of the parents mistakenly believing he was inappropriately aroused. And so, yes, perhaps now he’s not allowed within 50 meters of a school, but it’s a small price to pay for a push-up bra for the penis. [Cocksox]
I am fully willing to admit that LA is a totally different monkey than New York. The fashions, the seasons — everything is completely different. Which is why, after looking at the collection of looks at Thursday night’s GQ Man of the Year Awards, I kind of just give up. I don’t even know what month these ladies are dressing for.

It’s a general belief among conservationists that man should meddle with nature as little as possible. But what happens when there’s a wild animal in peril, and humans have the ability to help out? Earlier this month, guests at the Kapani Lodge Lagoon in Zambia, noticed a baby elephant and her mother struggling in the mud near the facility (think Artax drowning in the Swamp of Sadness in “The Neverending Story”). Rather than let the animals slowly suffocate in the mud, they alerted the South Luangwa Conservation Society. Conservation Society members, along with representatives from the local wildlife authorities, came together to develop a rescue plan, and both elephants were pulled to safety. Check out the dramatic photos of the rescue, and the relieved baby.
Stray dogs became like family for many of the American troops serving over in Afghanistan, and for some, leaving their posts and coming home means leaving their new pets behind. But a lucky few soldiers were able to be reunited with their long lost furry friends recently, in a heartwarming homecoming. It’s tough to say who was happier — the soldiers or the pups. [Buzzfeed]
