11 Of The Best Female Mugshots Ever

Fun-loving criminal, Michelle Watson, didn’t let a little ol’ arrest spoil her evening. When Michelle was pulled over  for hitting numerous curbs and driving her Honda Civic up on the sidewalk, she cursed at a cop, shoved him, and kicked him in the balls. Yes, in case you were wondering, she was extremely intoxicated. On the upside, her mugshot is fabulous. Thumbs up, Michelle! [Huffington Post]

Meanwhile, here are 10 other women in cuffs who made the most of their mugshots.

Conservative Political Action Conference Draws Major Leaders From The Right

On Monday night, Michele Bachmann visited Jimmy Fallon’s late night talk show and his house band, The Roots, played a little music like they always do. But then it became clear yesterday that the song was called “Lyin’ Ass Bitch,” a 1985 ditty from the band Fishbone. (The Roots’ drummer Questlove tweeted a teaser that afternoon — “aight late night walkon song devotees: you love it when we snark: this next one takes the cake. ask around cause i aint tweeting title” — that tipped people off.) This morning, Bachmann appeared on Fox News to say NBC owes her an apology and “that had it been Michelle Obama and that song had been played, I have no doubt that NBC would have apologized.” Bachmann squarely named the song selection/title “sexism” (as did feminist bloggers).

And although I can’t believe I am saying this about Michele Bachmann or Fox News, I actually agree. Keep reading »

Well, surprise, surprise. It looks like women in Hollywood are still screwed, at least according to a recent University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism study. Researchers surveyed all films released in 2009, and found that filmmakers still favor men over women — only around a third of all speaking characters were female.

Family says ghosts get freaky in their home. Watch »

A couple of weeks ago we heard about a family who witnessed some ghosts getting freaky in their living room, but at least those humping haunts had the decency to keep their phantasmagorical paws to themselves. UK woman, Doris Birch, isn’t quite so lucky. For the last four months, the 73-year-old grandmother claims that she has been groped nightly by a ghost. “It’s like an octopus … I was lying in bed when I felt this creepy pair of hands. I kicked frantically and it went away. Next time it came I hurled the duvet on to the floor!” she said of her visitor. It’s obvious that she’s dealing with an incubus, a male demon that lies upon sleeping women and tries to have sex with them. Or she is suffering from dementia. Either one. Keep on clicking for more stories of (alleged) sexual encounters of the third kind. [Huffington Post]

  • A Democratic state rep in Georgia plans to champion one of two “fetal personhood” amendments in Georgia, which would change the legal definition of a human to a zygote, therefore criminalizing all abortion. A “fetal personhood” amendment recently failed on the ballot in Mississippi.  [Huffington Post]
  • A delegate in Virginia has also filed a “fetal personhood” bill. [Feminist.org]
