The Last Place You Should Pick Your Nose Is During A Live Broadcast


Let this clip be a lesson to us all. Do not pick your boogers and eat them at work. Especially if you work in a newsroom and your desk is positioned directly behind the newscaster’s station because everyone will see you, including the viewers at home. Sure, you could try nonchalantly picking up the phone once you’ve realized what you’ve done, like the world did not just see you eat your boogers, but we won’t buy it. We saw. And we were grossed out. [via Dlisted] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Transgender Teen Stripped Of Homecoming King Title

  • A transgender teen was stripped of his Homecoming King title because he’s still technically registered as a female. [Jezebel]
  • Today in “Website Not To Bookmark”: “She’s Hot, But…” in which guys submit one-liners about a hot woman in their life who is attractive save one pesky, massive flaw. “She’s hot, but she has hairy legs.” “She’s hot, but she has the worst underwear.” How about “She’s hot, but she won’t have anything to do with me because I am a douchebag”? [Lemondrop]
  • Speaking at a party for GOProud, an organization for gay conservatives, Ann Coulter told the crowd, “Marriage is not a civil right.

Singer Wins Big — One-Million-Dumplings Big

How we wish we could be Edward Pimentel. He’s a lucky winner of the World Karaoke Championships, and the proud recipient of its one million dumpling prize. Yes, dumplings. It seems Pimentel wasn’t the overall winner, but the audience fave — and that entitles him to one million delicious steamed or fried dumplings. They aren’t just being dropped on his doorstep; he’s received a voucher for the million tiny parcels of goodness. That means that even if he were somehow able to choke down 100 dumplings a day, he’d have enough dumplings to last him 27 years

May we suggest some alternative uses for those dumplings? Use them to insulate your house. Use them for skeet practice. Fashion a farm’s worth of inanimate dumpling animals. Or you know, feed an entire city’s worth of people. Your call! [BBC News] Keep reading »

Mom Of 2 Robs Bank, Then Picks Up Her Kids At School

Erica Anderson is your average 37-year-old mom of two in Grants Pass, Oregon. Which is why it’s so surprising that last Monday she walked into a local bank and slipped the teller a note telling her to fill a bag with money. The note also told the teller to wait 15 minutes before calling the police, “or else two kids wouldn’t make it home from school.” Keep reading »

Jaycee Lee Dugard Writing A Memoir

Nothing could make me want to read a memoir by 16-year-old Justin Bieber. Nor am I interested in Demi Moore’s life story. Or Anne Heche’s, or Laura Bush’s, or basically 90 percent of the famous folks who have released autobiographies in recent years. But Jaycee Lee Dugard? Yep, that is a memoir I would like to read.
