A Mass Mooning


What were you doing yesterday afternoon? Oh, watching the World Cup? You and everyone else on the globe, with the exception of the residents of Laguna Niguel, California. See, because they were out at the railroad tracks mooning the passing Amtrak trains. Thirty years ago, someone at the Mugs Away Saloon, which is directly across from the tracks, offered to buy a drink for every person who would run outside and moon a train. The tradition has been continued every year, now with up to 10,000 people showing up to reveal their posteriors. Looks like fun? [Newser] Keep reading »

Designer Toilet Seat Covers For The Discriminating Toilet Goer

Wishing for world peace? Praying you’ll win the lottery? Perhaps you should settle for another kind of a dream come true: designer toilet seat covers. Yes, Toletta is here, and with the advent of this product, you may never find yourself squatting in high heels over a nasty, dirty public toilet again in your life. Seriously, though, nothing is grosser than a toilet seat in a bar or a club — except for maybe the toilet bowl itself. Who wants to touch that mess with a 10-foot pole, much less your precious posterior? Toletta to the rescue, bathroom dwellers! Five seat covers, available in pink or blue, come in a discreet, purse-sized travel pack and part of the proceeds goes to charity. The cover itself is thicker and bigger than regular seat covers that are thin as all get-out and always slipping off when you’re trying to come in for a landing. Also, they’re biodegradable. Your thighs may not be quite so toned from all those potty squats, but that’s what the gym is for, not the loo. [Marie Claire] Keep reading »

British Cat, Oscar, Wants To Steal Your Underpants

I used to have a cat named Kurtis. He was champagne-colored, rather large, and when he got mad at me, which was not infrequently, he would take random things of mine, say, a stray thong, and put them in his litter box. Now, it seems, Oscar, a cat in Britain — Southampton, to be exact — has a penchant for stealing panties. The 13-year-old feline spends his days breaking into the homes of neighbors from which he nicks rubber gloves, socks, and, most recently, 10 pairs of children’s underpants. “He was very proud that he had found these presents for us and would drop them at our feet,” said Oscar’s owner, Peter Weismantel, 72, who, worried his neighbors would think he was stealing the stuff, reported his own cat to the police. “If anyone is missing any underwear,” Weismantel’s wife, Birgitt, told potential victims, “it would be good to put their minds at rest that it’s only a cat pinching them and not someone more unpleasant.” Good to know one’s missing knickers are in safe paws.

So, Spain won the World Cup yesterday. Yay! Boo! Whatever! What? Anyway, Spain’s goalie, Iker Casillas, gave a post-game interview to Spanish sportscaster Sara Carbonero, who just happens to be his girlfriend. And, well, after seemingly thanking his teammates and his family, he just couldn’t resist planting a big, fat, victorious smooch right on her mouth. Super cute! [via Gawker TV] Keep reading »
