And that’s not a good thing. [YouTube]

Learning To Love Him More: Your Boyfriend’s Cocksox

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]

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The GQ Man Of The Year Awards

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. Certainly it’s not for almost-Thanksgiving time. In any case, some of these celebrities shine, while others completely miss the mark.

It’s Time To Cry: A Baby Elephant Is Rescued From The Mud

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]

Learning to Love Him More: Your Boyfriend’s Coyote Mountain Man Hat

When your boyfriend first brought home his Coyote Mountain Man Hat, you were mortified. He was, after all, wearing a full, skinned coyote on his head. It was…hideous. And yet, you couldn’t look away. You were held rapt by its slack ears lying dormant above your boyfriend’s sparkling blue eyes. You gazed in wonder at Coyote Hat’s bushy, long tail. Suddenly, you saw your boyfriend in a whole new light. He was a warrior–a warrior who had gone online and paid $299.95 to have a dead animal shipped to your house so that he could wear it atop his head. It was, after all, the perfect accompaniment to his Saturday afternoon Affliction tee and cargo shorts ensemble. And it was then, after reckoning with Coyote Hat and all that it meant to your boyfriend–and finally, to you–that you realized you had to dump him. He was a total loser.

Boston University professor Irina Kristy is a regular Walter White! The mathematics prof and her son Grigory Genkin (the Jesse Pinkman to her Walt) are facing charges for cooking and distributing methamphetamine. Genkin was charged with distribution of methamphetamine, conspiracy to violate drug law, and drug violation near a school zone. How very “Breaking Bad” of them! As one adorable BU student posited, “It could have been possible that Professor Kristy had no knowledge of the fact that there was a meth lab in her house.”

“Her son could have convinced her that it was some crazy lab experiment, but chances are she knew full well,” sophomore Urbashee Paul continued. “Although I do not support her involvement in the issue, I hope that it does not affect her chances to teach at BU.” [Daily Free Press]

Today In Bad Ideas: Man Stages Hate Crime To Prevent Divorce

All L.B. Williams wanted to do was save his marriage. So he did what any loving husband would: No, not go to counseling or attempt to romance his estranged wife with flowers and chocolates. He burned a cross. In his own front yard. See, Mr. Williams came up with the brilliant idea that his wife might be more amenable to staying together if he staged a hate crime.

People, people, people. I know we all love a good deal, but is it really necessary to engage in physical fights with one another over H&M designer collaborations? That’s exactly what happened at one H&M location in China on the release of the new Versace for H&M collection. Chinese shoppers began lining up yesterday afternoon at several Shanghai locations, and a few savvy (and wealthy) shoppers paid placeholders to hold their spots in line overnight. Annnnd that’s where the trouble began. Apparently some of the professionals didn’t handle it too well when someone tried to cut in front of them this morning. Keep reading »
