How much is having the perfect body worth to you? For 50-year-old Jayne Fenney, of Kent, UK, it was worth more than having a place to live. So she sold her house in order to afford the plastic surgery she desired. Keep reading »
FYI to all pregnant ladies: you can now booze responsibly, sort of. Introducing ArKay, aka “halal whiskey.” ArKay’s website boasts, “this non-alcoholic drink can be considered a soft drink and is suitable for any party occasions.” Alas, whiskey experts have spoken and ArKay doesn’t hold a candle to the real deal. The Scotch Whiskey Association is horrified that the company would even utilize the term “whiskey” in the product’s description and are fighting to keep it out of Europe. The legal affairs director for the SWA even sniffed, ”Such promotion is taking advantage of the high quality reputation of the product that is whiskey, which is a distilled spirit produced from natural ingredients, when it is in fact just a soft drink with artificial flavourings.” (Sheesh, it sounds like he could use a drink!) I can only imagine that ArKay would taste like the watery dregs at the end of a cocktail. But you’ve got to love their tagline: “Don’t drink and drive … unless it’s ArKay!” Pregnant Frisky readers, would you ever drink non-alcoholic whiskey … er, “whiskey”? [Gothamist]
Thousands of dedicated fans turned out over the weekend to see “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1.” But for one teenage girl, the tragedy of not making it was a lot worse than choosing between Jacob or Edward.
Police in Illinois arrested an “extremely upset” 18-year-old girl on Saturday after she told authorities that she crashed her car because her boyfriend did not take her to see the new “Twilight” movie.
Cops found Olivia Christina Ornelas “extremely intoxicated” and after discovering her car, missing the front right tire and spun out in a ditch off Route 71, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Read more…
The other day I told you about Becky, the Dr. Laura guest who can only get off by humping the corner of her laundry basket, which she’s had since college. She admitted to preferring the basket her husband Steve’s really “large” penis. There’s no denying that clean laundry is sexy as hell, but it’s clear that her feelings for the laundry basket run deeper than that. Becky’s is not the only case of a person being turned on by — or even having romantic feelings for — an inanimate object. Click through to read about more people with objectum sexuality, otherwise known as a romantic desire for inanimate objects such as laundry baskets. [Oprah]
We’re all familiar with crimes of passion, but true crimes of fashion were unheard of until, well, now. It was intended for all of the (new, as-yet-unproduced) samples from Marc Jacobs’ spring 2012 collection to be presented to editors tomorrow, but an unknown thief had other plans. The Telegraph reports that the entire collection has been stolen from a train leaving Paris en route to the press day. How does that even happen? What will this mean for Marc’s line, and the distribution of the clothing? Here’s to the proper authorities catching whoever did it and recovering the clothes unharmed, because I don’t think I’ll be able to go on without owning this ensemble… or at least knowing where it is. I’m sure this won’t be the last we hear of the incident.
Thanks to the new book, Stuck Up! 100 Objects Inserted And Ingested In Places They Shouldn’t Be, we now know that a Buzz Lightyear action figure should not go exploring inside an anus. Wait, I thought we already knew that? How did Buzz get up in there — feet first! — anyway? Forget it, I don’t want to know. I just want to gawk. This funny/weird/disturbing collection of X-rays of things that don’t belong in the human body will make you think twice before putting an iPhone in your vagina or a pair of bronzed baby shoes up your ass.

Breaking news in the world of appendage anomalies (my favorite). Doctors in China saved a man’s severed middle finger by attaching it to his stomach. Twenty-year-old furniture maker, Wang Yongjun lost the tip of his finger when working with an electric saw. Eeek! His doctor had to make a snap decision to save the finger with this unusual technique — making a faux umbilical cord-type thingy to restore blood flow to the tip of the digit and help regenerate a new finger. In a month from now, the wounded finger will be birthed from his stomach, good as new. Whaaa! That is insane. I am nicknaming it Wang Finger Stomach. Yes, his unique appendage was man made, but most humans with extra body parts come by them naturally. Click away for the world’s craziest extra human appendages. Prepare to be wowed. This is not your average triple nipple stuff. [Orange UK]
For the record, I don’t make a habit of hanging out with men who “manipulate their privates,” as Archeology Daily so eloquently puts it. But a new study shows that this cringe-inducing practice goes all the way back to prehistoric Europe. Analyses of phalluses in Paleolithic art show evidence of ornamental surgery performed on penises. Javier Angulo, the lead author of the study and the chair of the Department of Urology at Spain’s Hospital Universitario de Getafe, confirms that “modern primitives modified [their] genitals with the use of tattooing, perforations, and cuttings to change their appearances.” Yowch. Hey, fellas, who’s going to bring back decorative penis cutting? I’m thinking this could be a trend in 2012. Anyone? [Archeology Daily]
