Buzz Lightyear And Other Things That Don’t Belong In Your Butt

Thanks to the new book, Stuck Up! 100 Objects Inserted And Ingested In Places They Shouldn’t Be, we now know that a Buzz Lightyear action figure should not go exploring inside an anus. Wait, I thought we already knew that? How did Buzz get up in there — feet first! — anyway? Forget it, I don’t want to know. I just want to gawk. This funny/weird/disturbing collection of X-rays of things that don’t belong in the human body will make you think twice before putting an iPhone in your vagina or a pair of bronzed baby shoes up your ass.

Religious police in Saudi Arabia may now stop sluts women in public walking around with “tempting” eyes. In other words, Saudi gals with attractive peepers may be forced to cover them up, if a vice officer deems them inappropriate. This is only the most recent “repressive measure” that may be taken against women by the Islamic state. Saudi Arabia’s Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, or CPVPV, is a branch of the government that enforces the restrictive dress codes of the state, particularly those applied to women. In current Saudi law, it is already required that women out in public don a veil. But covering up “tempting” eyes? Mind-blowing. [USA Today]

Stray dogs became like family for many of the American troops serving over in Afghanistan, and for some, leaving their posts and coming home means leaving their new pets behind. But a lucky few soldiers were able to be reunited with their long lost furry friends recently, in a heartwarming homecoming. It’s tough to say who was happier — the soldiers or the pups. [Buzzfeed]

Watch Video

It’s been 30 years since movie star Natalie Wood (“West Side Story,” “Miracle on 34th Street,” “Rebel Without A Cause”) allegedly drowned during a yacht party. This morning, the captain of the Splendour (the boat she was on) appeared on the “The Today Show” to talk about what he says really happened that evening. In his co-authored book, Goodbye Natalie, Goodbye Splendour, Captain Dennis Davern claims it was her husband, Robert Wagner, who was responsible for Natalie’s death. Keep reading »

Last night, I went with my mom to the Occupy Wall Street protest at Foley Square in Lower Manhattan and then marched to the Brooklyn Bridge with 30,000+ other participants. It was awesome. One of the coolest things about the event was the “bat-signal”-esque OWS messages that were projected against the nearby Verizon building. They said, in sequence:

99% / MIC CHECK! / LOOK AROUND / YOU ARE A PART / OF A GLOBAL UPRISING / WE ARE A CRY / FROM THE HEART / OF THE WORLD / WE ARE UNSTOPPABLE / ANOTHER WORLD IS POSSIBLE / HAPPY BIRTHDAY / #OCCUPY MOVEMENT / OCCUPY WALL STREET / [list of cities, states and countries] / OCCUPY EARTH / WE ARE WINNING / IT IS THE BEGINNING OF THE BEGINNING / DO NOT BE AFRAID / LOVE.

But who was responsible for the projections and where, exactly, were they projecting them from? Well, BoingBoing has an interview with the guy behind the projects, Mark Read, and he says that he set up his bat-signal projector in the home of a single mom who lives in city housing directly across from “that big monolithic structure.” Her name is Denise Vega.

Debate This: Will Being Pretty Help You Get A Job?

Earlier this week, Forbes.com’s blogger Susannah Breslin — who used to be one of The Frisky’s own! — wrote a piece called “How to Get a Job If You’re a Twentysomething Woman,” after a reader named Frances asked her for advice on the topic. Susannah’s first bit of advice — and the one that has garnered a whole boatload of varied reactions —  was “be attractive.” Keep reading »
