What’s Up, Pussycat?

Yesterday a scampish rogue IMed me with a link and the message, “To the only person who loves p**sy and fashion as much as I do.” Oh, dear, I thought, mostly because I don’t like p**sy. But I clicked to link and much to my surprise I’m kinda in love with Elisabeth Moch’s funky Gibson-Girl-slash-I-Can-Haz-Cheezburger cat people. Some people have too much time on their hands … and I like it. [Elisabeth Moch] Keep reading »

Kittens In Bowls, Just Because


You can’t watch this bizarro Asian TV video clip of kittens climbing in bowls while the Beatles’ “Ob La Di” plays in the background and not smile. It’s humanly impossible. Is there a word that means random and awesome? Rand-awesome? Because that’s what this is. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

CBS Reporter Serene Branson Feeling Fine, Did Not Suffer From A Stroke


Hey, remember Serene Branson, the local CBS reporter in LA who started talking gibberish in the middle of her post-Grammy segment Sunday night? (See above!) The one some of us — um, me — had a good chuckle about until reports that she had a stroke made us — um, me — feel like ginormous a**holes? Well, Brandon did not — repeat, DID NOT — have a stroke. In fact, she’s in perfectly good health, according to her employers and the paramedics who examined her. That’s a relief. I never wanted Branson to be ill. Can I go back to laughing hysterically now?

UPDATE: L.A. TV Reporter Hospitalized After Suffering Stroke During Grammy Coverage


CBS LA reporter Serene Branson was hospitalized after suffering a stroke during an on-air Grammy segment in which she suddenly began speaking gibberish. Thanks to commenter pereiraj for pointing out that Branson’s condition was the result of a stroke — had I known that at the time that I prepped and posted the original post, I would not have joked. (The original post remains after the jump, as is our policy when issuing corrections.) We wish Branson a swift and speedy recovery. [Telegraph UK]

UPDATE: According to a rep for KCBS, Branson is not believed to have suffered from a stroke. An ambulance was called and she was examined by paramedics at the scene, but she wasn’t hospitalized, as previously reported.. “Her vital signs were normal,” said the rep. “As a precautionary measure, a colleague gave her a ride home, and she says she is feeling fine this morning.” Glad to hear it!

Update: Did The Yogurt Come Back Positive For Semen?

Oh thank god. There’s been an update in the case of the yogurt that tastes like semen. A couple weeks ago, I told you about the 28-year-old Albuquerque woman who said the yogurt sample she was given at her local grocery store tasted like “bodily fluids.” In fact, in her statement to police she said, “I spit it out on the floor many times cuz I was upset. [The manager Catherine Flores] told me it was a Greek yogurt. People love it, it has lot of protein on it.” Ahem. Police arrested Anthony Garcia, 31, the supermarket worker who gave the woman the yogurt, because he had outstanding bench warrants, and sent the yogurt to the lab for testing. Well the results are in! And it seems that the woman’s discerning palette was correct! The yogurt did indeed contain semen, and though Garcia maintains his innocence, a judge issued a warrant for DNA and blood samples to make sure he doesn’t have any diseases.

Swedish Taxi Boss Emailed Staff Pix Of Secretaries In G-Strings For Christmas

Most inappropriate Christmas card ever: the boss of a Swedish taxi company emailed holiday greetings to his staff featuring pictures of the company’s secretaries’ bottoms as they bent over in g-strings. According to IceNews, the Orebo taxi boss asked employees to match the secretary to the ass depicted in the photo in a multiple-choice quiz.”We couldn’t believe it. It was not even funny,” a female employee told Swedish newspaper, Nerikes Allehanda. The boss is now being investigated for sexism by the transport workers’ union, who first learned of the email after Christmas (although I wonder if the meaning of “sexism” and “sexual harassment” were lost in translation). And I’m sure you’ll be shocked — shocked! — to hear this guy has allegedly been accused of inappropriate behavior in the past. Try to keep your “Secretary” fantasies out of the office, people.

The Weirdest Super Bowl Halftime Show Ever


I did not grow up in a football-loving family (we went to political rallies on Sundays instead), so the Super Bowl has never meant a whole heck of a lot to me. But since I became an adult, I’ve starting tuning into the big game for three obvious reasons: 1) I like the food commonly served at Super Bowl parties, 2) it’s the only time I’m actually interested in watching commercials, and 3) I want to watch the spectacle that is the halftime show. Consider me officially bummed out, then, that my parents were such pigskin-hating hippies in 1989, the year the halftime show took a significantly bizarre turn in the form of Be-Bop Bamboozled, a magic show that involved 3-D glasses and a magician-slash-Elvis-impersonator in glitter spandex. Check it out above and then go read an utterly fascinating interview with the producer behind the show over at Popdust. This year’s entertainers, the Black Eyed Peas, better bring it.

PETA Wants To Run Commercial Of Hot Girls Fellating Vegetables During the Super Bowl


You work that carrot, baby! In 2009, PETA was willing to pay millions to run a commercial during the Super Bowl of scantily clad women making out with vegetables. The networks declined to air “Veggie Love” — think of the children! — but now PETA is trying again with an “outtakes” video. Once again they’ve upset the delicate balance between animal rights/objectifying women. But when it comes to PETA, what else is new? Hey, how many meateaters became vegans or vegetarians because a bikini model fellated a stick of celery? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Woman Claims Yogurt Sample Tasted Like Semen

Hello. Are you eating? Maybe stop for a second. Especially if you are eating yogurt. So, a woman in Albuquerque, New Mexico, called the police because she said a yogurt sample she was given at her local grocery store “tasted like bodily fluids” aka semen. Police arrested Sunflower Market employee Anthony Garcia, 31, on outstanding bench warrants, but are currently conducting lab tests on the yogurt in question to find out if it does indeed contain ejaculate — or just tastes like it. Speaking of… Keep reading »

Woman Allegedly Mows Down Cousin After Man Refuses Her Facebook Friend Request

Today in “bitches be crazy!” news: Melanie Snanopoulos, of Long Island, allegedly mowed down her cousin, Giselle Penagos, 21, twice with her van after fighting about a guy. On Sunday, Snanopoulos and Penagos got in a heated fight while driving after Snanopoulos discovered that a man she was interested in had accepted Penagos’ Facebook friend request, but ignored her own. After Snanopoulos pulled over, Penagos jumped out of the van and Snanopoulos followed her. The two fought on the street and then Snanopoulos allegedly hopped back in the van and drove straight into Penagos. She then supposedly reversed and plowed into Penagos for a second time. Over a dude ignoring a friend request? Maybe he just hadn’t gotten around to accepting it yet! Yeesh. Keep reading »
