A Crappy Way To Get Revenge For Cheating

Best/Worst Tattoos
The 10 best and worst tattoos in homage to "Twilight." Read More »

I’m not entirely sure I believe this story, but according to VeryWeirdNews.com, when tattoo artist Ryan L. Fitzjerald found out his girlfriend was cheating on him, he didn’t get mad, he got even. Rossie Brovent hit Fitzjerald with a $100,000 lawsuit, alleging that he inked her back with an enormous steaming pile of poop without her permission. Rather than dump Brovent when he found out that she was sleeping with his best friend, Fitzjerald got her to sign a waiver allowing him to tattoo her with a design “at the artist’s discretion.” This is the result. Oof. If this is for real, that’s a pretty shitty (ha!) way to get revenge. [Very Weird News via Buzzfeed]

Black Friday Crime Watch!

Happy Black Friday, the corporate pseudo holiday that encourages and brings out humanity’s most feral tendencies. Here’s a roundup of shit that went down this year.

  • Black Friday deals actually started on Thursday evening in some stores, and at an LA-area Walmart, one costumer pepper sprayed her fellow deal-hunters in the toy aisle. Perhaps the pepper-sprayer watches Fox News? [LA Times]
