Well, it was not a very pleasant holiday for a Florida woman named April Rollison, who died a week after having a crack pipe removed from her vagina.
The 31-year-old woman was arrested on December 16 for drug charges, and was taken to the Polk County Jail’s booking room, where a body scan alerted authorities about a glass pipe and bottle stashed in Rollison’s vagina. Keep reading »
I’m grossed out by the thought of someone eating on a subway train, which makes this birth story particularly nasty to me.
Two Philadelphia transit officers made a very special delivery Christmas Day, helping a women birth her baby on a SEPTA train. Around 6 p.m. Thursday night, Sgt. Daniel Caban and Officer Dorrell James met the Market Frankford line El train to aide in the delivery of one (very unlucky) passenger’s baby. Keep reading »
Ahh, the holidays. It’s a time for extreme awkwardness, forced social interaction and perpetual lies regarding the status of your not-very-exciting life. But perhaps the most uncomfortable encounter of all is when your new boyfriend meets your parents for the first time. Will Mom approve? Will Dad make some kind of unnecessary comment about his gun collection? Will your boyfriend fuck it all up by mentioning his band? Before you make the introduction, watch this video to prepare yourself for what everyone will be thinking during the process, and strategize accordingly. [Glamour]
As “adult” as you may be, there’s something about Christmas that turns back the clock, and transforms us all into non-creepy, non-wrinkly Benjamin Buttons. You’re 29, trapped in a 10-year-old’s body and that is totally 100% acceptable. It’s OKAY to want to hear “The Chipmunk Song” and it’s OKAY to snoop for presents. If you’re guilty of taking part in any of these childish Christmas habits, know that you’re not alone. Keep reading »
Somehow, in its 11 years of existence, I only watched “Love Actually” for the first time this past weekend. It was heartwarming, it was enduring, it was uplifting and I freakin’ loved it, which is what makes the timing of Amy Adams’ guest spot on “Saturday Night Live” this week even more perfect.
In a “Love Actually” spoof called “Christmas Romance,” Amy opens her door to find a man, “SNL”‘s Pete Davidson, holding up a series of signs. She quickly realizes that he might be trying to profess his love for her, but after a few more minutes of signage, what he actually reveals is SO much better. In fact, the writers at “SNL” did such a fantastic job, that Amy eventually can’t keep a straight face anymore and struggles to keep it together as Pete does his thing (also holding back the giggles). This is why I love Christmas.
Only a few days after President Obama held a press conference and criticized Sony’s decision to pull “The Interview” from theaters at a cyber hacker’s request, the studio has decided to release the movie on its initial premiere date after all.
After concluding that the North Korean government was behind the massive email leaks that put Sony’s pretty problematic business practices — and executives’ offensive remarks — in the spotlight, Barack Obama highlighted the importance of not caving to digital threats. Keep reading »
