Pandas As Pets: China Grants Yanni, Of All People, Permission To Adopt

Stop the presses: Yanni adopted a female baby panda this weekend from the Chengdu Giant Panda Research Base in China, which he named Santorini. First of all: SQUEEEE. Second of all: Santorini? Third of all: What? I can’t pick which part of this news is more absurd: China permitted a rare individual to adopt a baby panda and it was not me, or that the person who was allowed to adopt was YANNI. The panda officials said they picked Yanni as an adoptive dad because of “the inspiration and harmony his music brings.” Yeah? Well, my posts about vibrators and kinky sex acts bring inspiration to the people, too, ya know.  [9news.com] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Pennsylvania House To Introduce Anti-Abortion Ultrasound Bill

  • Pennsylvania’s state House of Representatives will soon introduce an anti-abortion bill that requires a woman seeking an abortion have an ultrasound 24 hours before the procedure. The doctor is required to position the screen of the ultrasound test facing the woman, although the woman is not required by law to look at it. She will also be required to received two prints of the ultrasound image, although she is not required to open them. The bill is called the Woman’s Right To Know Act and claims to give pregnant women “full information” about terminating a pregnancy. But instead, ultrasound bills like this one heap an additional expense upon women with unplanned pregnancies and provide a hindrance to seeking an abortion.

Occupy Condoms: “We Won’t Be Screwed!”

One of the things I’ve noticed about Occupy Wall Street is that there are really a lot of attractive people involved. Not that I would ever characterize a very large group of protestors as “dirty hippies,” unlike, say, Fox News. But I hardly expected my lady boner to have its interest piqued with such frequency at a protest. When Julie and I attended an OWS General Assembly meeting, I am embarrassed to admit that I leaned over and whispered to her, “Oooh, that guy is hot” not once, not twice, but at least four times. So much so that I considered starting my own committee — anyone can start one and there are committees for everything from medical to PR to consciousness raising. I wanted to start a committee for matchmaking. I mean, we’re talking about a bunch of single, like-minded individuals who at least know they have something very important to them in common: fighting corporate greed! I could be the Patti Stanger of Occupy Wall Street, I thought. Keep reading »

Some things really get my goat when it comes to kids, like little girls wearing heavy makeup. (Cough, cough.) But pot leaf-shaped candy? Meh.

Parents around the country are reportedly upset with “pothead” lollipops and ring-pops, which are sour apple-flavored suckers in the shape of marijuana leaves. According to the Washington Post, the lollipops sell for about a dollar and the ringpops sell for about three for $1.50. But, in an egregious example of false advertising, “pothead” candy doesn’t contain any THC. Instead, the packaging just shows a stoner-looking dude flashing a peace sign and the word “Legalize.” So, you know, the kids think it’s the cat’s pajamas.
