Telling someone to “eat a s**t sandwich” is no longer an insult reserved for your worst enemies. It’s something you can literally do. Japanese scientist Mitsuyuki Ikeda has made a scatological breakthrough with his alternative meat product containing a protein extracted from human poop. It’s more delicately referred to as “sewage mud.” Turd burgers, while still way more expensive than regular meat, are incredibly high in protein, low in calories and fat, and eco-friendly. Yeah, that still doesn’t put me remotely in the universe of wanting to eat one. Or eat anything for the rest of the day for that matter. Thanks, science! [In Habitat] Keep reading »
Don’t riots and violence just make you feel so passionate? No? Me neither, which is why I would love to know if there was alcohol involved when these people laid down in the street and kissed while Stanley Cup hooligans tore up the city of Vancouver all around them. (I am going to go with “probably” on that one.) Most media outlets speculated for days that the Vancouver riots makeout couple was a hoax somehow. But Toronto’s Globe & Mail got on the case and identified these two crazy kids: Scott Jones and Alex Thomas. Keep reading »
A former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader has founded a website called BreastaurantUniforms.com, where restaurateurs can get help turning “any restaurant into a breastaurant!”

Things not to do if you are a juror in a high profile case: friend request the defendant on Facebook. That’s exactly what British woman Joanne Fraill did and the action may just land her in jail for being in contempt of court. Fraill was a juror in a drug case with four defendants. After one of them was acquitted—a 34-year-old woman named Jamie Sewart—Fraill found her on Facebook and struck up a conversation. Apparently, she felt for Sewart. Keep reading »
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 »
