Quickies: What Men Think About Circumcision & The Bra In Pop Culture

This happened despite the fact that clergy-congregation sexual relationships are illegal in two states and 36 denominations have rules explicitly saying “thou shalt not hit on your parishioners.” [Washington Post]—Yet another example of porn plots which are inappropriate for real life.

The most famous single woman since Bridget Jones got married and wrote a book (Committed) about it. [WSJ]—Umm, women never looked up to her as some kind of feminist icon. We’re just jealous she got to travel to Italy, India and Bali to recover from her divorce while we get stuck nursing breakups in our apartments.
  • The U.K. briefly considered liberalizing their TV ad restrictions allowing condom commercials to air before 9 p.m. and permitting spots for abortion services, but they postponed a decision on the matter after 40,000 people responded.

    Woman Dies Crash Dieting For Her Wedding

Samantha Clowe, a 34-year-old woman in England, was always overweight, and was determined not to be a “fat bride” at her wedding. So she tried a diet program called LighterLife, which had her eating specially prepared soups, snacks, and shakes everyday for a total of only 530 calories a day for 11 weeks. She did lose a lot of weight. But then her fiancé found her collapsed at the top of the stairs in their house. He called an ambulance, but she was pronounced dead soon after from heart failure.
