Artist Bart Jansen thrilled us all with his dead cat helicopter. Well, now he’s back, with a much bigger, more bizarre (is that possible?) dead animal ‘copter project. Jansen and his buddy Arjen Beltman took a dead ostrich that had died at a nearby ostrich farm, strapped a bunch of motorized propellers on it, and created a truly terrifying flying beast. This is definitely Amelia’s worst nightmare. [Oddity Central]

Good morning! Have you had your coffee yet? Great! Because you’ll need something in your system to help you digest these glorious photos of Brazilian “model” Sabrina Boing Boing breastfeeding a calf. Ms. Boing Boing, whose chief talent appears to be hiring herself out as a Pamela Anderson impersonator, posted the photos on Instagram, with the caption (translated from the Brazilian) “some things don’t need to make sense, just worth it!” Yes, just worth it.
This isn’t Boing Boing’s first erotic foray to the petting zoo. Last week, she posted topless photos of herself about to feed an ostrich, too. (Picture of that after the jump) Somebody get this woman a TV show. [Huffington Post]
Oh, the things I learn in a day of trolling the interweb for penis stories. Today, oh glorious day, I learned that the ostrich hard-on, unlike other bird erections, is of the blood vascular variety as opposed to a lymphatic type. If you are learned in the science realm, then you’ll know that reptiles and humans (proud members of the mammal family) also get blood vascular erections. Meaning blood flows to the penis and makes it hard. Interesting point being that ostriches may be the evolutionary erection link in the penile tree. Other important discovery: the most common form of bird sex is known as the “cloacal kiss.” This is when the girl and boy birds touch their cloaca (the small all-purpose orifices in the butt region) together so sperm can pass. In conclusion, I mostly just wrote this post to freak Amelia out. She hates birds and their penises. [io9]
