Ned Nefner, 38, is happily married to his 6-foot-tall mannequin wife, Teagan. The two met back in the ’80s when Ned spent some time in a Children’s Home. Teagan was just a head when they began their relationship. Over time, he built her a body and eventually the two were married in 1986. You can follow Ned and Teagan’s adventures as they sojourn back to the site of their meeting on their Facebook page, The Guy Pushing the Mannequin. “I hope it doesn’t rain because when it does, it fogs up the camera and the pictures don’t come out really good. We want to take a picture outside of the old Children’s Home on State Street,” he said of their trip. While we don’t want to s**t on Ned’s happy marriage, the clinical term for his condition is known as agalmatophilia, a sexual attraction to mannequins.

Here’s some exceptionally weird science for you. Sara Ottosson, 25, was born without a uterus and is taking part in what could be the world’s first womb transplant. The donor? Her mom—Eva Otosson, 56, a businesswoman who runs a lighting corporation in the UK. “[Sara] needs the womb and if I’m the best donor for her … well, go on,” explains Eva. “She needs it more than me. I’ve had two daughters so it’s served me well.”
If this all works, Sara could carry a baby in the very same womb she herself gestated in. Keep reading »
Next time Susan Pollock needs to cool off, she should head to a nude beach instead of the city park.
The 44-year-old woman was charged with indecent exposure after police in Mesa, Ariz., claim they found her sleeping naked on a park bench near an empty bottle of vodka, the East Valley Tribune reported.
A father and his three children spotted Pollock taking her siesta around 5:30 p.m. She smelled of alcohol and was wearing nothing but a T-shirt rolled up above her breasts, the Arizona Republic reported. Read more… Keep reading »
Normally, I get sad when I hear about pets dying. But something about the news that Leona Helmsley’s beloved Maltese, Trouble, had kicked the doggy bucket made me happy. Maybe now they’ll be reunited in the afterlife?
Trouble, is of course, the dog that real estate magnate Leona Helmsley left a boatload of money to when she passed away in 2007. To be exact, Leona willed $12 million to Trouble, though a judge later reduced the amount to $2 million. Keep reading »
It’s harder than you think to come up with a thoroughly original name these days. Lady Gaga may (or may not) be surprised that she is not the first to bear her moniker. According to an awesome article over at Slate.com, there were actually three Lady Gagas before Stefani Germanotta came along. In the sixth century B.C. a Babylonian woman bearing the name Gaga had a cuneiform tablet sent to her father. In 1817, an Irish woman became Madame de Gaga when she married a frenchman, the Chevalier de Gaga. And in 1929, Punch Magazine created a fictional character named Lady Gaga. In a satire meant to poke fun at flapperdom, Lady Gaga was a socialite party girl who attended themed soirees like the Second Childhood Party, the Wild West Party, and the Circus Party.

To all the elementary and middle school teachers out there — not to mention the future tutor to the Martin-Paltrow kids! — I have an idea. Don’t take your students to Hooters during a field trip. Apparently, when students from Berwick Middle School in Pennsylvania headed to Baltimore to visit the National Aquarium, their chaperones decided to split the group up for lunch since 100 students couldn’t fit in one restaurant. Thus, a group of 20 eighth grade students ended up lunching at Hooters—which, yes, has great wings and sometimes bills itself as a family restaurant, but also gives kids an education in T&A. Apparently, no parents have complained yet, but this still feels a bit off to me. What do you think? [Newser] Keep reading »
There is no reason for you to watch this video other than to make you laugh and possibly make you stupider. But if you’re OK with that bargain, then by all means check out this video from the Greek version of “Britain’s Got Talent” of two men who can play a grand piano with their penises. Bravissimo!
