I’d always been told my engagement ring was special.

The way to a woman’s heart is with chocolate, but the way to anyone‘s heart is with a custom-made chocolate bar. Choose your bar flavor, such as white chocolate or dark. Then pick up to five toppings to be blended in and mark your bar as truly yours. Are cranberries your fancy, or would you prefer goji berries? How about sea salt or ginger?

I don’t know what it is with Katy Perry and her boobs. First, she does a video with whip cream shooting out of her ta-tas. Then she gets kicked off “Sesame Street” for exposing too much cleavage. And in her latest video, “Firework,” fireworks shoot out of her breasts and … save the world. It’s like Katy’s boobs are a force of nature. Or the central theme of her life. And if we see them do enough amazing things, we may come to worship them. In any case, enjoy Katy’s new fireworks breasts. Keep reading »
