Trapped Miner Yonni Barrios Emerges From Hole And Into The Warm Embrace Of His Mistress

It’s a Lifetime movie waiting to happen: “The Miner’s Mistress”! When Chilean miner Yonni Barrios (aka, miner #21 or Johnny Barrios) emerged from a hole in the ground where he has been living for the past two months, his wife was not there to meet him. Marta Salinas told the reporters she would neither be attending the rescue, nor continuing her marriage, after she learned a woman — who showed up to Yonni’s vigils crying and calling out his name — was actually his lover. Instead, the Tiger Woods of the Chilean miner set breathed his first breath of fresh air with his mistress Susana Valenzuela at his side, who kissed him and sobbed. I say cast Gael Garcia Bernal as the long-suffering husband and Eva Longoria as the sexy mistress. Because that’s exactly what these people look like in real life, as you can see.

Estonian Weight Loss Clinic Uses Fat Girl And Skinny Girl As “Before” And “After” Models

An Estonian weight loss clinic used two pretty blond women — one large and one skinny — to advertise its techniques by having them walk around wearing T-shirts that read “Before” and “After.” Clever gimmick, I’ll admit. But it’s degrading for the bigger girl to walk around all day being fat-shamed as the “before” chick. No amount of money she was paid is worth being exploited for that nastiness.

Dog Adopts 4 Tiger Cubs

A dog named Hei Nui has come to the rescue of three snow tigers and one white tiger in Weihai City, in China’s eastern Shandong province. It is believed the quadruplets were abandoned by their mother because large litters are uncommon for tigers. The dog has been nursing the tigers along with her two puppies. The three snow tigers, which are a variation of the white tiger and are born with white fur and blue eyes, will add to the about 200 snow tiger population left in the world. Stories about other species caring for the young of another always choke me up. [10/11/10] Keep reading »

Maru The Cat Needs A Bigger Box

The internet’s beloved Maru is back. This time, the entertaining feline is attempting to fit himself into a box that he just will not accept is too small for his generous bottom. It’s sort of like watching a really big guy attempt to fit himself into a clown car — only way cuter. Am I the only one who feels like Maru is totally aware of the video camera and does this stuff for all his viewers on purpose? Get this cat a TV show stat, Hollywood. Keep reading »

What Strange Stuff Did You Do As A Kid?

Yesterday, Amelia and I were discussing a random post idea, and Frederick’s of Hollywood came up. At that moment I remembered how much I enjoyed reading that catalog when I was younger. Yes, I read every product description in Frederick’s of Hollywood from cover to cover when I was only about 9 or 10. I even had my favorite model, one of the few, if the only black woman to grace the pages. I have no idea why my mom was on the mailing list. I don’t think she ever bought anything. It wasn’t a secret that I had a thing for Frederick’s of Hollywood, but I’m surprised my mom never told me to stop. I became even more fascinated with the catalog after my aunt told me Frederick’s of Hollywood was where hookers shopped. For some reason, lucite platforms, elephant trunk thongs for men, and ridiculous wigs intrigued me. But, then again, I was the kid who thought looking tacky was a good thing.

Score! Athletic Women Have Better Jobs And Make More Money

Even if you were the worst volleyball player on your middle school team, or if your parents dragged you kicking and screaming to basketball practice every week, chances are that you got some serious benefits out of playing an organized sport. A ton of research shows that women who played sports as kids and teens not only went further in their education, but landed better jobs and now make more money. In fact, one study showed that of women in executive positions, 82 percent played an organized sport after elementary school. And in general, while only 1 in 6 women identifies themselves as an “athlete,” that number shoots up to 1 in 2 for women who make $75K a year or more. That’s enough to make you kick a soccer ball around, no? Keep reading »
