Al Roker, prepare for your sharting incident to be forgotten. I wish I spoke Finnish right now so that I could understand this story in it’s entirety because it is bonkers. From what I can ascertain from the wonky Google translation, two female journalist purposefully pooped in their pants on a bus traveling from Helsinki to Turku and wrote about the experience. May Day  Vappu Kaarenoja and Aurora Rämö of Ylioppilaslehti, Finland’s largest student newspaper, planned the act of public defecation for the newspaper’s 100th anniversary issue. They detailed the the pooping process, riding the bus with poop in their pants, how their pants felt and smelled and I can only imagine what else.

As you might have guessed, both the bus company and the newspaper’s distributor were not excited about this piece of journalism. The bus company’s CEO is calling it a “tasteless trick and really tasteless writing.” “This is extra work for us. And this is certainly [bad] for bus passenger comfort, the idea that someone has shit his pants on the bench,” said the CEO. They company is considering taking further action against the girls. They would like an apology and money for cleaning expenses. [Kotimaa]

The Squeeze: Alfie Allen, Text Messages, Kate Moss, And Weight Discrimination

  • Lily Allen’s brother, Alfie, will be playing the lead role in Equus in Yorkshire this month. Yep, it’s the role Daniel Radcliffe stripped for. Alfie said that he doesn’t have any qualms about getting naked on stage: “It’s just part of the job I do. In fact it’s really liberating because you get a real sense of freedom and after a while you don’t really think about it.” [Yorkshire Evening Post]
  • Women are twice as likely as men to report weight discrimination, and it’s as common as weight discrimination, according to data from the National Survey of Midlife Development in the United States. [NYTimes.com]
  • Kate Moss, who is reportedly engaged to Jamie Hince, is planning on having a gypsy-themed engagement party after Lily Allen suggested it. [The List]
  • Finland’s foreign minister is being pressured to resign after being accused of sending raunchy text messages to an erotic dancer. At first, the minister denied that he had sent about 200 messages to the dancer, but later apologized and said they were work-related. Huh? [AP]

    The Daily Squeeze: Love Leave, Women Working Out, And Gray Hair

  • Next week, the Finnish Parliament will discuss whether to grant working adults one week of “love leave” a year. This proposal is aimed at helping to reduce the number of divorces (half of all Finnish marriages end in divorce — like the U.S.!) and the number of people suffering from depression. Research there has shown that Finns want more time with loved ones than higher wages. [Reuters]
  • Harvard has banned men from one of its gyms for a few hours each week to allow Muslim women to exercise without having to be completely covered. When in public, Muslim women must cover their hair and most of their skin, which probably makes exercising an especially sweaty, uncomfortable affair. [AP]
  • A 50-year-old writer posted a profile on Match.com with a photo of herself with gray hair. She monitored the number of “winks” and e-mails she received, and then she removed that profile and put up the same profile three months later with a different photo, this one of her with brown hair. She repeated this experiment in different geographic areas. All three times she received more “winks” with her gray-haired picture than the one that showed her with brown hair. We have no idea what this means for those of us under 50, but we might have to keep this in mind and skip the hair dye in a few years. [More]
