That’s Miss Nipplefoot To You

Of all the unusual places that one can sprout a triple nipple, this may be the winner. The Scientific Journal of Dermatology reported on a rare case of a 22-year-old woman with a nipple on the bottom of her foot, complete with the works — breast tissue, areola, and hair. (Check out the full, uncensored foot nip, after the jump…) The condition, which is the first of its kind occurring on a foot, is called Supernumerary Breast Tissue or SBT. While she has had her vestigial foot nipple since birth, it has grown over the years to be about four centimeters in diameter. The woman’s foot boob doesn’t cause her any pain, but she didn’t mention whether or not it brings her any pleasure. Foot fetishists all over the world must be rejoicing. But seriously, never again will I complain about blisters and corns. [The Sun UK via Jezebel] Keep reading »

Really? Have we gotten to the point where we need a large fork to stop us from gorging ourselves? What if we just served ourselves an appropriate amount of food and stopped eating when we were full? Just a thought. [Live Science] Keep reading »

Casey Anthony Is Out Of Jail. Her Next Move? Pursuing Criminal Justice Or Photography.

On Sunday circa 3 a.m., Casey Anthony was released from jail, just a week and a half after being controversially acquitted for the murder of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. As Casey walked out of the Orange County Jail in a hot pink polo shirt and got into a car, dozens of people watched, holding picket signs that ranged in messages from “Justice for Caylee” to “Casey, will you marry me?” From there, Casey boarded an airplane at the Orlando Executive Airport and was whisked away to an undisclosed location, where she will be monitored by a heavy duty security team.

So, what will Casey do next? Her lawyer Ann Finnell says Casey has two career choices in mind. Keep reading »
