70-Year-Old Grandma Laughs About Robbing Bank

I think I might have found someone who tops the mom of two who robbed a bank and then went to pick up her kids a school. Meet, Sandra Bathke, the 70-year-old woman in Minnesota who robbed a bank in December by holding a hammer in her coat and pretending it was a gun. Check out the interview with her above. “I never touched the money, I never smelled the money,” she said. “[The teller] put in my bag and I said, ‘Thank you’ to her before I turned around and walked out the door. There were times when I went, ‘What am I doing?’ Didn’t dawn on me to stop.” Then Bathke laughs. Keep reading »

Man Makes A Quilt From 58 Pairs Of Women’s Panties


What sort of man sews a quilt from 58 pairs of women’s panties? Louis Garrett of Missouri, that’s who. With his hoary beard, tattoo across his forehead, and wife beater tank, he’s a Creepy McCreeperson sent from Central Casting.

Louis only wants women’s panties made from rayon, acetate, and silk for his panty quilt — “no polyester, I don’t want none of them cheap, dollar store, not sexy farm girl panties. I want classy!”

Classy indeed. Just like Louis himself. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Cleaning Up Spills Has Never Been So Zen


Call me crazy, but I have been utterly transfixed by this demo video for some magical contraption that cleans up condiment spills. Mind you, a swipe with a sponge will do the job fine, but if you want to pick up, say, the big glob of ketchup you dropped on the floor and keep it in the exact same formation, then this is the gadget for you.

A Mini Horse With A Lucky Leg


Midnight the miniature horse was only born with three legs, which would normally result in being put down. But thankfully, the folks at Ranch Hand Rescue in Fort Worth, Texas, were able to make him a special prosthetic horse leg, so he can trot, gallup and run with the best of ‘em. It’s enough to make even the saltiest cowboy cry. [Houston Chronicle] Keep reading »

I Need A Petite Lap Giraffe

The mini-lap giraffe in the DirecTV ads is now for sale! You can buy your lap giraffe today from Sokolovsky Farms, Russia’s finest purveyor of Petite Lap Giraffes. Ok, not really. It’s an ad campaign. But you can still waste time watching the little critters on a live web cam or finding out pet care tips at PetiteLapGiraffe.com. See “Vladimir” and other “PGLs” go about their daily business, like taking bubble baths, lounging on couches, and eating bonsai trees. Fun facts: A full-size adult PGL only grows to be about 30 inches tall and sleep in a box like a cat. I know, I’m in denial. I still think I’ll own one someday. It can happen.

“LOL,” “OMG,” “♥” And “Muffin Top” Added To The Oxford English Dictionary

OMFG, I am LMAO. Apparently, the Oxford English Dictionary announced some new additions to its iconic pages this week. A few of the words being taken into the fold: “LOL,” “OMG,” and “♥.” And yes, they are fully aware of the fact that these are not actually words. The OED calls them “initialisms” and explains “there often seems to be a bit more than simple abbreviation going on.” They say the expressions can be an “informal, gossipy mode of expression” or can “parody the level of unreflective enthusiasm or overstatement that can sometimes appear in online discourse.” So highbrow for text talk, no?

Also interesting: apparently, the first use of OMG appeared in a letter in 1917. And LOL goes back to 1960, only then it meant “little old lady.” Keep reading »

Woman Hired Hitman Online

Need a hitman to off that special enemy in your life? No problem. You don’t even have to leave your couch! Just log on to hitmanforhire.com and take your pick of qualified killers. Once you’ve selected the right hitman for your job, send an easy payment through PayPal and consider your hated one 86′d. Twenty-eight year-old Pennsylvania woman, Melissa Mark, did just that back in 2006, according to the grand jury who indicted her this week. She contracted a hitman using the website (no longer in existence) to shoot a California woman in the head for $37,000 all from the comfort of her own home. Ah, the modern conveniences available on the interwebs. [Mcall] Keep reading »

Mother Gives 8-Year-Old Daughter Monthly Botox

Being a stage mom is bad enough. But being a stage mom wielding a needle to give your 8-year-old daughter Botox injections every three months? Well, that is just straight up insane. Beautician Kerry Campbell does this to daughter Britney, a beauty pageant enthusiast, and defends her actions saying she is actually a responsible parent. “What I am doing for Britney now will help her become a star. I know one day she will be a model, actress or singer, and having these treatments now will ensure she stays looking younger and baby-faced for longer,” she says. “More mothers should do it for their daughters… I wish that I’d had the same advantages when I was younger.”

Please, please, please stop the insanity. But it gets worse. Keep reading »

The Littlest Hipster In The World

“Shut up mom, I’m trying to get this mix right for my next DJ gig at Les Deux. Have you heard that band Odd Future? I saw them down at SXSW and they totally killed it. Trevor says he’s going to have me model in his fall lookbook — it’s got a very French New Wave/Truffaut vibe. Mom! Mom! Mommmmmmm! Where’s my binky?” Meet Marcel, child model in this month’s Vogue Enfants. [Fashionista] Keep reading »
