Best. Job. Ever.

Dear Amelia: I am quitting to move to China and reintroduce fuzzy panda cubs back into the wild — effective immediately. The Hetaoping Research and Conservation Center for the Giant Panda in Wolong National Nature Reserve breeds pandas and then tries to successfully integrate them into the forest and bring them back from extinction. Uh, in panda suits. Insert “furries” joke here.

After the jump, more panda madness … Keep reading »

Woman Still Breastfeeds 6-Year-Old!

If you’re in the middle of your breakfast (or lunch), you may want to bookmark this article and come back to it later. That’s because we’re going to talk about breastfeeding, which is a beautiful and natural thing, to be sure, but when it’s a 6-year-old who’s suckling at momma’s boob? Hmm, not so much. Amanda Hurst is a 29-year-old mother of two sons: one five months and one 6 years old, and she breastfeeds both of them … occasionally at the same time. And by her comments, it would seem Amanda breastfeeds her 6-year-old more out of convenience or her own personal enjoyment than anything else. Keep reading »

Give Me A Bear Bouquet!

Women don’t want a bouquet of roses. We want a bouquet of stuffed bears! Sure, FTD does something like this, with a bunch of flowers that have a small stuffed animal in the middle, but these bear bouquets take the concept to a whole new level. Personally, they freak me out. Apparently, the number one is lucky in Chinese culture, so there are 11 bears here, the number one doubled. But do they all stare at you with their 22 eyes while you’re sleeping? I shudder to think. [Weekly Teinou] Keep reading »

Man Embeds Camera In The Back Of His Head

NYU photography professor Wafaa Bilal was one of 23 brave souls who agreed to have surveillance cameras embedded in the backs of their heads as part of an art project called “The Third Eye.” The images recorded on the cam will be streamed to a live feed at the Arab Museum of Modern Art in Qatar. Wafaa plans to leave the camera on at all times — including sexytime. Whoa, just whoa. Keep reading »

Mexican Airline Stewardesses Pose In Calendar To Save Bankrupt Airline

Enough with the sexy calendars already! After Mexicana Airlines filed for bankruptcy this summer, air hostesses photographed themselves in a 2011 “sexy stewardesses” calendar to save their airline. They paid $8,000 out of their own pockets to create the $12 calendar, which is on its second printing. Last time I checked, keeping an airline afloat (er, up in the air?) is not supposed to be their problem, so it bugs me they resorted to posing pant-less to stay employed. At least these gals are enterprising, though, right?

How’s This Angle?

Woman Quits Her Job To Become Professional Kate Middleton Look-Alike

Kate Middleton is not the only tall brunette with shiny-shiny hair to die for. A British pharmaceutical assistant, Kate Bevan, 21, who bears a striking resemblance to the princess-to-be, has quit her job to become a full-time Kate Middleton look-alike. “I went out to buy a sandwich and I was stopped four times by people in the street,” Kate Bevan told People. (Because the fiancée of the future king of England totally goes out and buys lunch on her own.) “Nearly everyone who comes through the pharmacy door makes a comment and gawps in total shock,” she added. She is now taking dialect lessons to lose her West Midlands accent and sound more like the posh princess-to-be. We know Elvis impersonators warble “Heartbreak Hotel” and chomp on peanut butter and banana sandwiches. But what does a princess impersonator do — wear big silly hats? Roll around in piles of priceless jewels? [People] Keep reading »

Hangover Helpers To The Rescue!

This holiday season, there’s a pretty good chance a few of us may find ourselves nursing a hangover or two — not that I’m going to point any fingers (cough-Amelia-cough-me-cough-pretty-much-the-whole-Frisky-staff-cough-cough). And if your hangover is the result of a party you’ve thrown, probably the last thing you want to take care of the morning after is cleaning up and fetching yourself some grub. Lucky for folks who live in Boulder, Colorado, they don’t have to! That’s because for $15 per roommate, Hangover Helpers, a couple of genius University of Colorado grads, will come to your house with breakfast burritos and Gatorade and clean up your post-party mess. Hangover Helpers is the brainchild of Marc Simons, who started cleaning up homes after parties a year ago when he was looking to make a little extra cash. His high school pal, Alex Vere-Nicoll, soon joined him and voilà!, their business was born. Now, how soon until they expand to the east coast? [via Time.com] Keep reading »

Man Weds Dog

A lot of us love our dogs — ahem, Amelia — but not enough to marry them. Not the case for Aussie dude Joseph Guiso. Yesterday he married his best friend, Honey, a 5-year-old Labrador. He proposed to Honey when the pair were on a walk in the park and saw another couple getting married. He just couldn’t stand the idea of living with her out of wedlock anymore, so he popped the question. Honey said nothing, so he took that as a yes. Thirty of the couple’s closest friends and family gathered for the nuptials. “It’s not sexual. It’s just pure love,” Joseph told the guests. And then he kissed the bride. Honey had no comment.
