There are some wackadoo laws out there for drivers. Who better to make a list of the 50 most bizarre than an international freight shipping company like Barrington Freight?
From driving a car dirty in Russia (“Nyet!”) to a totally bizarre $78 fee for hitting a pedestrian, read some of the more inane rules of the road around our fine, fine world on Huffington Post …
In the iconic sleepover scene in “Grease,” Sandy gets her ears pierced by the Pink Ladies, tries her first cigarette, and gets teased by Rizzo for being a virgin.
But what if Sandy’s mom and dad had come to pick her up at 10:30 p.m. and brought her home to sleep in her own bed?
Alas, this is what could have happened if, in the fictional “Grease” universe, “sleepunders” — as opposed to sleepovers — were a thing. Keep reading »
I don’t know about you, but I am physically incapable of talking to an adorable pet without using a weird hybrid of baby talk reserved solely for encounters with animals. Even in high-stakes social situations that require me to act like a total grown-up, I can help but melt into pieces when a puppy walks into the room and start talking to the dog like he’s a toddler. Thankfully, I’m not the only one! TheAwoman, who is some kind of recruiter, thought she had hung up the phone after leaving a voicemail when she starts singing to her … dog? She could be sweet-talking a child, a cat, or anything in between. But whoever the recipient is, the message is nothing short of adorable. Lyrics like “I love my little beary-kins. You can stay here!” and “My little carebear, I love my little beary-boy” remind us that nobody is immune to cute puppy-talk. You can listen to the clip on Deadspin. It’s so embarrassing, it’s cute.

Another good reason for teens to have restricted use of technology that makes it easier for stupid stuff to happen: a 13-year-old girl allegedly took a picture on SnapChat of her mother and 14-year-old sister — both topless in a hot tub — and it got spread around a couple of Missouri high schools.

Nathan B. Forrest High School in Jacksonville, Florida is largely African American and Forrest’s history is dubious, indeed. He was a slave trader, and historical reports and some say he gave the order to kill 300 captured black Union soldiers. He was also an honorary member of the KKK. None of these are good things, and honestly, I wouldn’t want to go to a school bearing his name, either. Read more on The Stir …
I’m not looking to shit on anyone’s insane holiday spirit, but I’m sorry, having 277 Christmas trees in your house, like Maryland woman Renetta Zanco does, seems excessive. Saying that her house looks “like Macy’s department store” would be an understatement. Zanco, who often spends 10 hours a days Christmasing her house from top to tail, has 28 trees displayed in her bathroom alone — including one that is made of toilet paper rolls and one that lives in the shower during the holiday season. (I’m curious about how that works.) Keep reading »
Sssssucks to be you, man. A man in Ghana claims he was using a public toilet when a ‘big, black snake’ bit him on the tip of his penis on Wednesday. Kwabena Nkrumah, 34, said the pain was intense, and that he ran out of the public toilet screaming, “Snake! Snake! Snake!” which in turn caused others using the facilities to panic and flee, according to Ghanaweb.com. Read more on Huffington Post …
Sixteen suspects described as “kids of means” have been arrested after a wild party in a wealthy Los Angeles suburb where a $7 million mansion was trashed and partygoers made off with a bizarre assortment of loot—including a mounted snow leopard valued at $250,000. Read more on Newser …
Apparently we just don’t “get” Tila Tequila. The reality TV star and glamour model turned Hitler fangirl and Nazi apologist has released a new video on her website, hitting back at critics of her recent defense of Adolf Hitler and his Nazi regime. She says all of her ramblings about Hitler — and that image she posted to Facebook in which she’s dressed up like Der Fuehrer, standing in front of the extermination camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau – are all satire and we just don’t get it because we’re “New World Order Zionists.” Mmkay. Please do explain, Hitila or Tilisis or whatever you’re calling yourself these days:
“This time I would like to address all the ridiculous rumors all over the Internet that I am now a Nazi just because I made some satire videos, just because I was sympathetic towards other human beings, because God says we should forgive and forget. But unfortunately, some chosen ones who think they are God’s people, refuse to forgive and forget. And not only do they act hypocritical, but they stone anybody that dare to forgive and forget … It all started with a satire photo of some of my fans who made a Photoshop picture of me that says ‘all hail the queen,’ and unbeknownst to me, I didn’t realize it had a little subliminal message in there with a swastika on the hat or whatever. Anyways, that was not my intention. However, with the way I was being unjustly attacked by the, well, the New World Order Zionists, ok, because, first of all, I speak for the people. I am the only one with a platform that is not afraid to speak out for the people…”
