Sweet! Husband Gifts Wife A Chocolate-Covered iPad

Hubby Stefan Magdalinski knew that his wife, Kay, wanted an iPad for her birthday. But like a wily scamp, Stefan did not want to make it easy on her. Instead of using the obvious Apple box, he wrapped her iPad in plastic and had his friends who run a London chocolate shop dip it in frozen chocolate carbonite! The result? A gift that for Kay looks like a giant chocolate bar, but is actually a dream toy for an “Apple nut.” Dude totally should have gotten a blowie after that one. See one more photo, after the jump … [Unplggd] Keep reading »

Don’t Want Acne? Quit Smoking!

As if you really needed another reason to kick that terrible smoking habit — that is, if you do smoke — here’s news that just might put you off those cancer sticks. Recent studies found that those who have the nasty habit are also more likely to have another nasty issue: acne. So that means in addition to stinky clothes, yellow fingers, and smoking breath, smokers can now add pimples and poor complexions to their list of issues, all thanks to the cigarettes they’re inhaling. We’d suggest heading out to the drugstore for Nicorette gum ASAP and relishing in your new, clear face once you’ve kicked the habit. Your lungs — and pores — will thank you.

Colorado Candidate Says Vote For Me “Because I Do Not Wear High Heels”

Politicians and stupid remarks go together like 90-degree days and Frappucinos. But you’d hope that in 2010, politicians would know better than to sling mud about each other’s gender. Recently, Jane Norton, a U.S. Senate candidate from Colorado, made the sexist comment that her opponent, Ken Buck, was not “man enough” to criticize her himself and instead had others do his dirty work. Then yesterday at a fundraiser, Buck sniped back with a remark about Norton’s femininity — by way of her footwear. When an audience member asked the Colorado cowboy why he deserved their votes, Buck responded, “Why should you vote for me? Because I do not wear high heels.”

In other words, because he’s not a woman. Or maybe a transvestite. But we think he meant a woman. Keep reading »

Black Parents Confused When They Give Birth To White, Blond Baby

A black Nigerian couple got quite the shock when wife Angela Ihegboro gave birth to a baby … who is a white, blond-haired, blue-eyed girl. The birth left both parents speechless for several minutes, before the father, Ben, broke the silence with, “What the flip?” What the flip, indeed! Scientists have yet to come up with a solid answer, but have narrowed it down to three theories. Genetics experts believe that baby Nmachi’s differences are a result of a gene mutation, a long-term dormant gene, or a mutated version of an albino gene condition. Regardless of what science figures out, the Ihegboros already have their answer. “She’s a miracle baby,” said Angela. Spoken like a proud mama. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Man Banned From Facebook After Claiming He Bedded 300 Women From The Site

It sounds like Clive Worth fancies himself a modern day Casanova. He claims to have bedded more than 1,500 women thanks to the help of online dating and social networking sites. He even wrote a book about it called A Serial Shagger’s Guide to Online Dating. Yuck. The 60-year-old ex-miner claims that at least 300 of his conquests have come from Facebook. So now the site is banning his account. Worth says he doesn’t see the reason why the site is not allowing him access, but is working around the ban by creating a disguise profile as a woman. What an ingenious man! Keep reading »

What The Hell Is “Breast Ironing”?

Hold on to your girls before you read this, ladies.

There is a practice called “breast ironing” in the African country of Cameroon, a practice which involves flattening a girl’s growing breasts with hot stones to prevent her nipples from being firm and “enticing men.” The news network CurrentTV filmed a short documentary on “breast ironing,” specifically how mothers believe it will “protect” their daughters from teen pregnancy if men are not tempted by their pert breasts.
