Sometimes I Use My Hair As Floss And I Am Not Ashamed

Sometimes I Use My Hair As Floss And I Am Not Ashamed

Confession: Sometimes, when I have food stuck in my teeth and no floss on hand, I am industrious enough to pluck a hair from my own head to use instead. I’ve never met anyone else who’s been as clever, so for a second, I thought this Gawker headline was about me: “This Woman Uses Her Hair as Floss in the Name of Thrift.” Except it’s not, because I do it in the name of convenience, not because I’m cheap. (I’m guessing “Amelia is the Bear Grylls of emergency dentistry” was #31 on this list.) Apparently, this fellow DIY flosser and kindred spirit of mine appears on a new episode of the show “Extreme Cheapskates,” and while I agree it’s extremely cheap to use hair instead of floss because you don’t want to spend money on it, I don’t see what’s so crazy about using one or two strands of my own hair to get a piece of kale out of my teeth. Yes, one or two. Sometimes one works, but occasionally I have a two-strand situation on my hands. I don’t recommend using three. The only thing worse than having food stuck in your teeth is having hair floss stuck in your teeth, TRUST. [Gawker]

TGIF! This Used, Jizz-Filled Condom Has Been Tied To A Subway Pole Since At Least Tuesday!

In case you needed further proof that people behave like savage, filthy animals on public transportation, I bring you this photo of a used condom tied to an F train subway pole, spotted by a commuter and posted by Gothamist. A flurry of responses and tips later, the blog reports that the condom has been tied to the pole since at least Tuesday, with at least one tipster sending in another photo of what she thinks is the exact same condom, only she saw it way back in September. SEPTEMBERRRRR. I can’t. Either this is the work of a spunky, heh, serial prankster or the MTA really needs to improve its cleanup game. Regardless, I’m taking the 6 train to work from now on.

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Rosebudding

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Rosebudding

Yes, rosebudding. What can I say? I am a weirdo who thinks Halloween costumes based on grotesque sexual non-trends are hilarious! All this costume requires is as much rose-printed clothing and accessories as you can find — the more hideous and clashing the better, as this costume is obviously not about beautiful aesthetics. Then, simply wear your iPhone or smartphone around your neck on a lanyard and when people ask, “What are you for Halloween?” you can simply reply, “Rosebudding! Check out this GIF!” They will be shocked and horrified, which is exactly what the Halloween spirit is all about! Keep reading »

Watch This Woman Accidentally Eat Bird Poop Ice Cream

Watch This Woman Accidentally Eat Bird Poop Ice Cream
And The Camera Guy Just Lets Her!

Happy Almost-Labor Day Weekend! It’s going to be a hot one, so eating ice cream is going to be an activity for a lot of people this weekend. Hopefully none of them have the grave misfortune of eating their ice cream 1) underneath a shitting bird and 2) with a loved one who is willing to sit back and laugh while they ingest its fecal droppings along with their scoop of vanilla. Because that’s what happened to this woman. I hope she smashed that cone in the camera guy’s face. [Gawker]

Pageant Mom Feeds Her Daughter Tapeworms To Slim Her Down For Beauty Pageant

Well, That's Disgusting

Today in terrifying parenting: on an upcoming episode of “Untold Stories of the ER,” we hear the tale of a Florida pageant mom who fed her teenage daughter tapeworm eggs to help her lose weight for an upcoming competition. When the girl arrived at the hospital with a bloated stomach and severe pain, the nurses first thought she might be pregnant. An ultrasound didn’t show a baby, but it did show a bizarre growth in her intestines, and a trip to the bathroom revealed a toilet bowl full of wriggly tapeworms. Nurse Maricar Cabral-Osorio told UPI, “some of the worms were very long and wiggling around trying to get out of the toilet bowl.” Gag! The girl’s mother turned white as a sheet. According to Cabral-Osorio, ”The mom was apologizing to the girl. It’s like ‘I’m so sorry. You know, I did it just to make you a little skinnier. You needed some help before we went on to the pageant.” The mom bought a pill of tapeworm eggs in Mexico and forced her to ingest it. The show’s over-the-top reenactment of the scene is actually pretty funny, but I can only hope that in real life the mother faced some kind of legal punishment for endangering her daughter. This is all kinds of screwed up and her parenting doesn’t sound safe for any kid. Excuse me while I vom. [Gawker, UPI] [Image via Shutterstock]

Pop Virtual Pimples With This Super Zitty Game App

Pop Virtual Pimples With This Super Zitty Game App

Now that I’ve reached the A-list in “Kim Kardashian’s Hollywood” — though I am still working my balls off and have a few more levels to go — I’m looking for another iPhone game to waste precious braincells on. And lo and behold, I think I’ve found one that appeals to my grossest instincts: Pimple Popper, the game that awards you points for “popping” a variety of different kinds of pimples. Each pimple type — blackheads, whiteheads, full blown pimples and pimple scabs — has a specific way it can be popped/peeled, oozes pus and makes a delightful sound. As you ascend the levels, the pimples become more plentiful, just like my face every day of junior high and high school! If you’re not ready to commit to the $1.99 price without popping a few pimples first, there’s a Lite version of the game that you can download for free. Happy popping! [Pimple Popper via Buzzfeed]
