Breaking news in the world of appendage anomalies (my favorite). Doctors in China saved a man’s severed middle finger by attaching it to his stomach. Twenty-year-old furniture maker, Wang Yongjun lost the tip of his finger when working with an electric saw. Eeek! His doctor had to make a snap decision to save the finger with this unusual technique — making a faux umbilical cord-type thingy to restore blood flow to the tip of the digit and help regenerate a new finger. In a month from now, the wounded finger will be birthed from his stomach, good as new. Whaaa! That is insane. I am nicknaming it Wang Finger Stomach. Yes, his unique appendage was man made, but most humans with extra body parts come by them naturally. Click away for the world’s craziest extra human appendages. Prepare to be wowed. This is not your average triple nipple stuff. [Orange UK]
A long-term study at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital in Scotland found tha women who had sex four or more times a week were rated as looking 10 years younger than their actual age. (More sex leads to a youthful glow? I can dig that!) But the research, cited in a new study by WomenTALK, also found distressing news: of the 1,031 surveyed, many are increasingly having sex out of obligation to their partner — not their own pleasure.
Of all the weird side effects rabies causes, I never knew that hypersexuality was one of them. The other day we heard the story of an Indian woman who contracted rabies from a puppy bite. After two months untreated, the inflammation in her brain caused her to feel aroused all the time. Sadly, she passed away a few days later. I’m not trying to depress you, rather to educate about some little known causes of nymphomania. Click through to see some more bizarre things that have given women uncontrollable sex drives.
A recent poll found that all of our pre-work primping and preening doesn’t hold up for long. Of the 2,000 women surveyed, 10 percent thought they needed to fix up their hair and makeup after an hour in the office, 40 percent felt completely “bedraggled” by lunch, and 43 percent felt like a completely different woman by the end of the workday. On average the women polled only felt they looked good for a total of two hours and 22 minutes a day. That’s sad. Sure, my hair is usually frizzy and my makeup smeared after nine hours. I’m not fresh out of the shower, but that doesn’t change the way I feel about myself. I’m still hot at the end of the day. This study annoys me with its implication that most women are insecure about their looks or need to be all done up to feel sexy. Also, consider the source. The poll was conducted by a company that makes body wash. So, I guess we’re supposed to shower more to feel better about ourselves? No thanks. [Newslite]
I want to talk about a very important subject–one near and dear to all of our colons and butts. Pooping. And specifically, pooping at work. There are some of us who feel unable to poop at work. And then there are those of us (RAISES HAND) who do not understand how some people have the mental and physical wherewithal to NOT poop at work. As a workplace pooper, I think it remarkable that some of my colleagues and friends have the willpower and physical control to save the pooping until they get home. Keep reading »
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which means every day brings us 16 different stories of pink boobie paraphernalia banned from schools. Gilbert High School in Gilbert, Arizona is the latest school seeing red over pink. The administration said the cheerleading squad’s pink T-shirts reading “Feel for lumps, save your bumps” was an “objectionable slogan” and inappropriate for two upcoming football games. Now the shirts have been banned. Keep reading »
Mr. Hanky the Christmas Poo has cracked up “South Park” fans with his juvenile sense of humor since, oh, forever. But it’s time to for him to step it up for a serious reason now: rectal cancer. That’s why Michelle L. Dobrawsky, a lawyer/comedian, started a campaign for Mr. Hanky to become the official spokesman — sorry, “spokesturd” — of the cancer from which she suffers. Rectal cancer has “a big ol’ marketing problem,” Dobrawsky writes in an open letter to Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the “South Park” creators. “Imagine the day when Mr. Hankey’s earthy brown visage is slapped onto every ribbon, T-shirt, electric mixer, lipstick, football helmet, mouth guard, sneaker, toaster, stapler and every other endorsable, colorable product in the world!” You forgot Mr. Hanky underwear, Michelle!
God bless anyone with cancer who manages to have a sense of humor — and an appreciation for poop jokes. Here’s hoping Matt Stone and Trey Parker agree. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
