Edinburgh college professor Gavin Bradford was deemed “unfit to teach” by Scotland’s General Teaching Council after allegedly asking a female student to shove a pie down his pants. With further investigation, the Council discovered that the 37-year-old performing arts lecturer at Coatbridge College had a history of inappropriate behavior with female students. While working at a college in Ontario, he was said to have asked more than 20 female college students to smear themselves in ketchup and eggs and pour sour milk into their underwear. He allegedly asked girls (some as young as 12) to participate in these food fetish acts late night, via webcam.
That is absolutely disgusting. I’m relieved to hear that he has lost his right to teach. While performance art occasionally includes the smearing of food on the body by one’s self a la Karen Finley, there is absolutely no justification for this kind of lewd violation in the classroom or after hours. I guess that’s why Bradford didn’t show up to his hearing. [BBC]
Christian Grey is damn near God-like — at least according to guests’ bedside tables in The Damson Dene Hotel. Bibles have been booted and E L James’ BDSM erotica novel 50 Shades of Grey has taken their place in every room within the English inn. Damson Dene’s owner said providing a copy of the book to every guest within the 40-room hotel was “a hospitable thing to do.” Keep reading »
This weekend, the worst thing ever happened. And by the worst thing ever, I mean a used condom landed on top of my cell phone.
O’Boyfriend and I were, uhhhh, using a condom. And then we were done using the condom. And then because I didn’t want it or its contents spilling on my bedsheets, I suggested he throw it in the wastepaper basket. So LeBron James over here tossed it in the direction of the trash … and it landed on top of my iPhone. Keep reading »
The Republican National Convention is August 27 to 30 in Tampa, Florida, and that means the area’s 40 strip clubs are scrambling to get ready. Strip club owners say that during the 2009 Super Bowl in Tampa, they doubled and tripled the number of dancers. What will happen for this GOP-palooza? Well, you’ll be happy to hear the Sarah Palin-lookalike stripper is booked. Another club has set up an online chatroom called the Club Cam where deep-pocketed Republicans can chat with strippers — for $4-a-minute, plus a $19.99 monthly membership — before their plane even lands in Tampa. Hey, what recession?! [TampaBayOnline] [Photo: Getty]
The ’90s brought us the blessed thong, which eradicated our panty lines forever. But then low-rise, skinny jeans became a thing and the combination of the two make a very unhappy marriage. Gravity makes the thong rise while skinny jeans descend creating the perfect environment for thong slips to occur. Miranda Kerr experienced this first hand while running errands with baby Flynn in NYC last week. At least she was wearing a cute lavender thong — Victoria’s Secret, naturally. No doubt I would have been wearing my ripped ones from Target if someone photographed my butt. Keep on clicking for more celebrity thong slips. [Photo: Splash]
