An Ode To Fudge On National Fudge Day

I’m sure you guys are already all up on this, but it’s National Fudge Day. If you haven’t already fallen into a sugar-induced coma, then I’m at least two pounds of fudge ahead of you. As someone who recently had 16 cavities filled in two days, I think I am a fair judge on everything that is delicious, and fudge fits in that category. In celebration of this most glorious and holy of days, we’ve written an ode to fudge. Keep reading »

Joran Van Der Sloot’s Tattoo Reads “No Worries”

Earlier this week, a photo surfaced of Joran van der Sloot, sans shirt, being examined by a prison doctor. And folks couldn’t help but notice that he had a tattoo across his chest. The tattoo is in Thai and it reads, “No worries.” Oh, the irony—since van der Sloot has confessed to murder, let it slip that he knows where Natalee Holloway’s body is buried, and is being held in a jail in Peru where he is supposedly fearing for his life. Oh, and today his lawyer quit. Maximo Altez said that after receiving death threats, he is done with the case. “I’m an older person. This isn’t for me,” he said. Hopefully, this will make you think before getting any tattoo involving words like “happiness,” “money,” or “love.” You are only tempting fate. [Gawker, NY Post] Keep reading »

Australian Pottymouths Fined Up To $300 For Public Cussing

Civil liberties nightmare or a f**king great idea? Police in Queensland, Australia, now have the authority to fine citizens $100 to $300 for committing the “public nuisance” of cussing in public. Queensland’s head of state, Anna Bligh, said to expect a 20 percent rise in public nuisance complaints, based on trial programs in South Brisbane and Townsville. Why are Aussies so concerned about naughty language? They’re not. Apparently, swear words are just a moneymaker. Bligh said that targeting public pottymouths (along with those who pee in public and other acts of disorderly conduct) could generate the government some major bucks. Watch your mouths, Aussies!

Porn Star Devon James Claims That She Has A Little Tiger Love Child

I almost thought my news feed would stop with the stories of Tiger Woods‘ “transgressions” now that he is back to golf and we have other philandering men to deal with, but Devon James has crushed that dream. The porn star recently claimed that her 9-year-old son, Austin T. James, is the result of a teenage fling she had with Tiger in 2000. James was among the long parade of ladies who admitted to having affairs with the golfer. She originally claimed that she and Woods had a two-and-a-half-year relationship that started when James’ friend invited her to a threesome with the golfer. Now she is saying the two-girls-one-Tiger tryst was not the first time she and the golfer came together. Keep reading »
