The Original Plastic Flamingo Company Is Bankrupt

The company that manufactured those fabulous (or tacky, depending on your point of view) lawn flamingos for 50 years filed for bankruptcy last week. But have no fear, your lawn ornament needs will be met by another company! The molds and copyrights were sold to another company last year for $263,748, and since the flamingos sell for $10 to $20 for two (one standing erect, one bending over), the company will only need to sell 26, 375 packs of two to make up their investment. Such a deal for them! And if you thought the flamingo lawn ornaments weren’t very realistic, you are in fact mistaken. Donald Featherstone, who designed them in 1957, sculpted them from clay, modeling his flamingos after photos in National Geographic. [TheBostonChannel.com] Keep reading »

Sign Of The Times: Women At Work

“Men at Work” signs are even more outdated then Men At Work’s (the band) hits. Okay, we still get down to their 80′s party tunes, but the biased signs are finally out in Atlanta! It’s all thanks to Cynthia Good, one of the founding editors of PINK and Atlanta Woman magazines. Angered that women working alongside men were being ignored by the sexist signage, Good decided to take matters into her own hands. After politely sending letters to the Mayor Shirley Franklin and Governor Sonny Perdue, she got nowhere. Then, not so politely, she was accused of spray painting a “wo” before one of the the signs, but luckily the police stood by her. Despite the hot water, last week, she decided to turn up the heat on her public campaign. She huffed and puffed at the Public Works Commissioner, Joe Basista, and she blew those signs clear outta town. Now, new ones, which will read “Workers Ahead”, have been ordered. The estimated $166 cost to replace the signs is money well spent! [Atlanta Journal-Constitution via Fark]

Is Your Car Dealership Certified Female Friendly?

Women are sometimes overlooked as car-buying customers at car dealerships, but things are changing, perhaps because there are more women on the inside — Annette Sykora is this year’s chairman of the National Automobile Dealer’s Association despite females making up just 7 percent of car salespeople. Dealerships can actually become “certified female friendly,” which involves completing a training program that helps make showrooms and service centers more female-friendly, whatever that means. So far, 220 dealerships have become certified. I hear so many stories about men getting better deals on cars, and it wouldn’t surprise me if this still happened at certified female friendly dealerships, so if I ever buy a car, I think I’d want to buy from a woman.

The Daily Hotness: Michael Phelps & Ryan Lochte

You know the other thing I love about swimmers? Their little swimming briefs. They’ve really modernized the Speedo, haven’t they? Also, there is nothing sexier on a man’s body — especially if he is an Olympic swimmer like Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte — than that muscular V on their lower torso. There is a reason why this cover of the upcoming issue of Men’s Journal has been popping up on gay sites, you know what I’m saying? Check out Men’s Journal for more insanely hot photos from the issue. Keep reading »

Sexy Times For Senior Citizens

They don’t call it the golden years for nothing! Senior citizens are overwhelmingly sexually satisfied — to anyone who has seen Blanche Devereaux slut her way through an episode of the Golden Girls, this will come as no surprise. But the men are getting their fair share too — 54% of single men are sexually active, while 68% of married guys are hittin’ it on the regs. Strangely, married women are only at 56%…. Anyway, who’s been brave enough to ask all these old pervs about their sex lives? The University of Gothenburg in Sweden — they’ve surveyed 70-somethings since the ’70s. Thanks to them we’ll never look at Grandma and Grandpa holding hands the same way ever again, especially after yesterday revelation that STDs are up amongst this crowd as well. [Health News]
