The heart wants what it wants. And in the case of James Rene Mouton of Scott, Louisiana, the heart wanted to ride a horse into a bar and lasso a guy.
The 26-year-old had stopped into the Cowboys nightclub and kept his horse trailer parked in the bar’s parking lot. Which was convenient, because at some point during the night, he decided that he needed to go riding. In the bar. He was escorted out of the establishment on his steed by a 47-year-old man, who was then lassoed and dragged through the parking lot by Mouton.
Oh, but that’s not all.
A drunk Mouton dropped the horse off at his parent’s house and then returned to the bar on foot. The police were called, and Mouton tried to hide, but was eventually found and charged with disturbing the peace, remaining after being forbidden, second degree battery, public intimidation and retaliation.
Well, it is called Cowboys Nightclub. [KTSM]
Look, I wouldn’t really eat a cat. Or a cat face. But there are no words for how scrumptiously adorable this little cross-eyed tabby cat is. This is Jarvis P. Weasely, a stray brought to the Saving Grace Animal Rescue in San Francisco, California, when he was just four weeks old. That’s where a woman named Daria found him, and decided to foster him. She explained:
“I used to oversee the kitten fostering program at Oakland Animal Services (OAS) a few years back. When I would go to the shelter, I would always look in on Jarvis because he was soooo adorable and scruffy. I was fostering kittens at my house but I couldn’t take him home as he had a bad URI… Some days he would vertically leap around the kennel which I always assumed were jumps for joy, but more likely he saw ghost. Once the kittens were out of my house, I brought him home to ‘foster’. He never left! He is here, has a home, drives me crazy, and is loved immensely.”
Jarvis has a slight depth perception problem, thanks to the lazy eye, but is otherwise perfectly healthy and happy. And super, super cute. [LoveMeow]
Celebs have descended on New York Fashion Week in droves, and are busy populating the front row at every major designer’s show. Often, the designer will prod a famous lady into showing up by giving her clothing to wear — if not to keep, then at least to be photographed in. Which is largely why so many of these ladies look so frickin’ incredible as the models pass them by. Today, we’ve got images of (from left to right) Emily Mortimer, Alicia Keys, Jessica Pare and Maria Sharapova, who all appear perfectly turned out Jason Wu’s fashion show. All the women are wearing Wu, but which look do you like best?
Ladies, you thought your underwear was doing its job — keeping your precious lady bits in place, modestly covered and safe from the elements. But you were wrong! You need underwear that does more, more, more! Especially when you’re on your period. May we suggest Simple Necessit-Ease undies? They look like regular panties in every single way, except they contain a secret polyester, waterproof, breathable lining. You need this when Aunt Flo is visiting because it provides protection from leakage, and will, says Simple Necessit-Ease founder Grace Soohoo, prevent period blood leaks from getting all over your outfit. Or, you could, you know, regularly change your tampon. Either way, these actually sound like a good idea in the days leading up to your period, when you’re not sure when it’ll arrive. We’re especially fond of the boyshorts style. [Simple Necessit-Ease]
Swagger New York and Italian designer Michele Morricci came up with a bizarro collaboration: fantasy illustrations detailing what some of our fave cartoon characters might wear to New York Fashion Week, and man, is it weird. It’s troubling enough imagining grown-up Lisa Simpson at all, but then to see her yellow-ish body bedecked in sassy Marc Jacobs hot pants and a button down? I’m still not used to the idea of her having knees. Morricci also illustrated Sailor Moon as a whimsical Rodarte fanatic, Daria in practical and chic Prabal Gurung, and perhaps most appropriately, Beavis and Butthead in Jeremy Scott. Because of course they’d wear a designer known for putting fast food on swimsuits and dogs in animal print shoes.

Brad Kolb owns Hornet Signs in Waco, Texas. Baby genius that he is, Brad got the idea to make non-traditional truck tailgate decals as a means of advertising his company. One features a soldier sniper aiming a gun, another is a zombie, and yet another is an image of a woman hogtied and lying down, her hair covering her face, in the back of a truck. In a segment on Waco’s local Fox affiliate, Kolb says he’s not trying to say he “condones” violence against women, but just wanted to see as, like, an experiment, if the gruesome image would bring in new business. And according to Kolb, one of Hornet’s female employees volunteered to be the kidnapping victim. “It was an experiment for us, and I was really shocked by how much traffic it did drive,” said Kolb, who seems to think that the violent decal was a success — he claims he’s seen an influx in orders. But we tend to think that profiting off of violent imagery that degrades women is a major, major fail. Keep reading »
