Police in South Carolina arrested a mom last weekend after she allegedly directed the word “fuck” at her children in a Kroger grocery store. Danielle Wolf, who just moved her family to the city of North Augusta three weeks ago, grew frustrated with her husband for squishing the bread in her shopping cart, and displayed her annoyance with a few four-letter words. A fellow shopper approached Wolf and insisted that she had said “fuck” in front of her children. Wolf had said the word to her husband, not her kids, though I’m not sure why a total stranger felt entitled to this clarification. “She’s like, ‘you said the f-word’, and I’m like, ‘when did I say this to my kids?’” Wolf told local news station WJBF. “She’s like, ‘you told them that they were smashing the bread’, and I said ‘no’ I said that to my husband, that he was smashing the bread by throwing the frozen pizzas on top of it.’”
One thing lead to another, and though the irritated shopper hadn’t intended for Wolf to be arrested, she ended up leaving the store in handcuffs. Keep reading »
It wasn’t enough for Sarah Espinosa of Albany, New York, to crash into a firehouse while driving drunk. No, she had to show off and do it with a python around her neck. A stolen python, that is. Last night, Espinosa crashed through the garage door of a firehouse on Long Island and struck two firetrucks. Firefighters quickly scampered to the scene to find a “small ball python” around her neck. Before she drunkenly got behind the wheel of her car, this pillar of society had stolen the snake from a nearby Petco store. Espinosa got hit with a DUI, unlawful possession of marijuana, reckless driving, second-degree reckless endangerment, and petty larceny; the python was returned unharmed.

The world of child beauty pageants is like its very own “Twilight Zone” where normal rules of society need not apply. How else to explain the British mom who dressed her four-year-old up in a Hooters uniform? Hooters Toddler appeared in a British documentary “Blinging Up Baby” about the strange world of children’s glam, like getting pedicures, spray tans and hair extentions while still in preschool. Enter Liane Dix, whose daughter Scarlett competes in “U.S. style” child beauty pageants and appears in the doc wearing a tiny Hooters tee shirt and orange short-shorts. According to the UK’s Channel 5 web site, this is all (surprise) the mother’s handiwork. “She would probably be a tomboy if I let her,” Liane is quoted as saying. ”I suppose that’s what I’m influencing onto them, that they don’t do everything wrong that I did when growing up.” I’m just gonna leave that last quote right there for y’all to think about.

Dr. Arthur K. Zilberstein, a 47-year-old Seattle anesthesiologist, spent so much time sexting that he pretty much forgot to do his job. His medical license was suspended when authorities found out about his ”preoccupation with sexual matters” and the “moral turpitude” he displayed in the workplace. From the looks of it, this guy sexted in the middle of surgery while he was supposed to be putting all his concentration into monitoring his patient’s wellbeing. How, exactly, does one get turned on when a person’s body is cut open on the operating table a few feet away!? Keep reading »
A group of angry wackos are petitioning the United States government to classify feminism as a terrorist group. Yes, you can read that again.
The Change.org petition’s creator, Janet Wilkinson, included the following statement on its homepage (complete with Wilkinson’s typos left in for, ahem, clarity): Keep reading »
Hey girl, are sure you’re ready for your boyfriend to propose? More specifically, is your hand ready for him to a put a big ol’ expensive rock on it? According to ELLE, hand lifts — yes, face lifts for your handddddsssssss – are becoming increasingly popular with brides-to-be concerned that unsightly loose skin and wrinkles are distracting from their pretty baubles. Seriously, guys? I can’t.
Once upon a time, I got engaged and I suddenly had a big ol’ rock on my finger. I will admit that wearing such a beautiful piece of jewelry every day — a ring that didn’t turn my finger green and wasn’t purchased at Urban Outfitters or Forever 21 — did make me feel inclined to get more regular manicures. It just looked better with nicely shaped and freshly painted talons instead of chipped polish, straggly cuticles and dirt under my nails. But upping the frequency of my nail salons visits was a personal choice, not a requirement, and really ultimately silly and totally unnecessary. But a HAND LIFT?! Come. On. Keep reading »
