Miss Plastic Hungary Pageant Seeks “Body Work” Contestants

“Ever had plastic surgery to become beautiful? Are you proud of your body? Would you like to put yourself to the test?” These are all questions most beauty queens would be too embarrassed to answer, but one Hungarian company isn’t afraid to ask. The website MissPlasticHungary.hu is seeking contestants for what it says is the first ever beauty pageant for women who have had cosmetic surgery. Pageant organizers are trying to fight the stigma associated with beauty operations in Hungary. The contest is open to women between the ages of 18 and 30 and to women older than 30 in the “dame” category, all of whom must have had a surgical procedure performed under local or general anesthesia; a simple Botox injection won’t suffice, and neither will extremely large breasts (remember they’re trying to fight the stigma?). So far, 100 entrants have already signed up for the pageant that is supposed to occur on October 9. Maybe Carrie Prejean has a pageant comeback in her future? [Reuters] Keep reading »

Girls Want A BFF, Boys Like Hanging Out In Big Groups

Those kooky scientists, always launching big, expensive studies to tell us things we already know. Researchers at the National Institute of Mental Health took MRIs of children’s brains to figure out what exactly happens when they make a new friend. The kids were asked to look at pictures of potential friends and rate them, depending on interest. Researchers told the test subjects they would be meeting their favorites from the pictures in a few weeks. For girls, preparing to meet a friend got their brains all hyped up. But boys’ brains pretty much did nothing at all. (Ha, what else is new?) The scientists concluded that this shows that girls tend towards one-on-one relationships, while boys prefer the nature of large groups. Perhaps so they have more people to burp with?

Why Do So Many People Want To Watch The Erin Andrews Video?

A hot, naked, blonde woman caught on tape. A lot of straight men don’t need to hear anything more. Sold.

But what if we find out the video was filmed without the knowledge of the unwitting star? What if it’s a super creepy invasion of privacy?

Same reaction, apparently. Yeah, the grossest part of this whole Erin Andrews story—the pretty, blonde ESPN sports reporter who was recorded naked in her hotel room through a peephole—isn’t that some creep made a peeping Tom video. It’s how so many people, knowing Andrews didn’t consent to being filmed, still wanted to watch it.

Celebrities Love Reading Kids Books

Although Will Arnett may have ruined “Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret” forever during an episode of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” he’s not the first celebrity to give his own rendering of a literary work for tots. From creepy to endearing, celebrities have been reading children’s books and nursery rhymes since long before Arnett butchered the Judy Blume line, “I’ve got a bra now, it’d be nice if I had something to put in it.” Here are our favorite clips, after the jump… Keep reading »

Santa’s Helpers Get Married

The Santa Claus World Congress in Copenhagen, Denmark, brings together Santas from around the world, and this year, the event got off to a cute start with a wedding between Rune Hamrath Hansen (who has elf ears!) and Sine Andersen. The two married in a Christmas-themed wedding. Andersen wore a red dress and veil and Hansen sported an outfit that looks like what elves wear while making toys in Santa’s workshop. Do the two just really love Christmas and Jolly Old St. Nick? We have no idea, but we bet the bride wore green lingerie under her dress. [AP] Keep reading »

Should Letting Your Kid Get Really Fat Be A Felony?

A South Carolina woman is being charged today with criminal neglect, a felony that could land her up to ten years in the slammer. Why? Because her 14-year-old son weighs 555 pounds. The kid’s mother, Jerri Gray, was poor and often had to work back-to-back shifts, so her son was home alone a lot. Gray claims there wasn’t a lot of junk food in the house, but that her son was stuffing his face in school, eating several lunches each day and feasting on snacks given to him by his friends.

Superman’s S&M Fetish

While Clark Kent was changing into his Superman cape and adventuring around saving people, he had a second alter ego who was really into whips and chains. While the Superman comics sold like hotcakes, a second comic book was making the rounds called Nights of Horror. These books featured Superman and Lois Lane getting down and dirty. Joe Shuster, one half of the team who created Superman in the 1930s, lost the copyright to the characters and was receiving practically no money for his hit cartoon. He was super strapped for cash, so he started anonymously freelancing for the mob and took up illustrating these racy comics. Nights of Horror comics were sold under the counter at Times Square bookstores during the early 1950s.

Oh, it gets seedier. In 1954, a neo-Nazi Jewish teen group known called the Brooklyn Thrill Killers went on a murder spree, and many blamed Nights of Horror for being their inspiration. The magazine was deemed so inappropriate that the U.S. Supreme Court banned it. Keep reading »

Joe Biden Has A Thing For Ukrainian Women

“I cannot believe that a Frenchman visiting Kiev went back home and told his colleagues he discovered something and didn’t say he discovered the most beautiful women in the world. That’s my observation.” – Vice President Joe Biden

Now, our Vice President is known for having foot-in-mouth disorder, but this little quote in particular icks me out. For starters, it’s kind of un-patriotic. I don’t think that American women are the most beautiful in the world, but it’s not my job to think or say so. But as VP, if Joe Biden feels the need to talk about the “most beautiful” anything, he should really stick to the good ol’ U.S. of A. Really, I don’t want my VP ogling the ladies when he goes abroad and if he’s going to, he should do so subtly and keep his observations to himself. The fashion industry, which employs a bevy of Ukrainian models, already does more than enough to make the Average Jane feel inferior next to ladies like Dasha Astafieva.

Five Things You Should Know About Erin Andrews

A few weeks ago, the name “Erin Andrews” meant nothing to those of us who couldn’t care less about ESPN. But after a nude video of the pretty, blonde sports reporter surfaced last week, Andrews is everywhere. Some creep recorded the video without her consent from a hotel room peephole and passed it around on the Internet.

Today, Radaronline.com is reporting a source told them another ESPN employee likely filmed the pervy vid. Radaronline.com also alleges that there are also seven videos of Andrews, all posted on a French website called Dailymotion.com. The user allegedly uploading the video calls himself or herself “Goblazers1″ and identifies himself as a 49-year-old American.

Depressing. We did some digging to find out all this deets on the pervy privacy violation of this ESPN star, who—sucks to be her—will never be known for just sports reporting again. Keep reading »
