Bedbugs: The Movie

Movie lovers are feeling itchy and checking for bites now that it has been reported that several movie theaters in Manhattan and the home to the Toronto Film Festival have been plagued with bedbugs. But movie executives are feeling fine and think they can turn this recent scourge of annoying insects into cinema gold. A shelved 2004 screenplay about burrowing bedbug-like killers seeking blood from a small town is now in production talks once again. Meanwhile, the rest of us are perplexed at why anyone would want to relive this all-too-real infestation. Just thinking about it makes us squirm. [Empire] Keep reading »

Serbians Chow Down On Kangaroo Testicles At A Testicle Festival

As professional greedy food monster, there isn’t much in the world that I won’t eat. I make s’mores with a lighter on my couch and consume whole blocks of cheese in one sitting. But I am not down with testicles. They are a punch line and a tool in baby-making—not a source of food. The patrons at the 7th annual World Testicle Cooking Championship in Serbia might disagree with me. Keep reading »

Politician Raffles Off A Boob Job To Raise Campaign Cash

In America, the politicians act like big boobs. But in Venezuala, one politician is raffling them off. Gustavo Rojas is running as an alternate on the country’s General Assembly and is raffling off free breast implants at $6 a ticket to fundraise for his campaign. Rojas admitted his method of fundraising is unusual, but claimed it’s no different than raffling off a TV set. Hmm. The word I’d use would be “opportunistic”: According to the country’s Plastic Surgery Society, 30,000 people got breast implants in 2006. We’ll have to wait until the election at the end of September to find out if auctioning off a new pair of breasts is a bankable campaign strategy. [AP] Keep reading »

Today In Terribleness: Tiger Cub Found In Luggage At Bangkok Airport

Think drug trafficking is reprehensible? Get a load out of tiger trafficking. When a 31-year-old Thai woman arose suspicion at the Bangkok, Thailand, international airport recently, authorities ran her luggage through the X-ray scan to take a look. Turns out, she was smuggling a tiger cub inside a suitcase of stuffed animals. The poor little guy was doped up on more drugs than a Deadhead. Keep reading »

Tallest Teen In The World, Elisany Silva, Announces Plans To Model

And I thought I was tall. Brazil’s Elisany Silva is 14 years old and 6’9″. She’s so tall, she hits her head into the ceiling of the small house in which she lives, and she had to stop going to school because she couldn’t fit on the bus. The family seems unclear on exactly why Silva is so tall. “I want [her] to stop growing up, to be [like] the other girls,” her mother says, “because I know she feels weird and sometimes wants to be like them.” Despite the challenges, Silva wants to become a model, and she’ll be making her catwalk debut in an upcoming bridal show in Belem, Brazil.

Man Receives Store Card Addressed To Suicide Bomber

Boots, a pharmacy company in the U.K., has some explaining to do after Andrew Adams received a store loyalty card addressed to: Dr A Suicide Bomber. Boots supposedly has certain words flagged in its system, and it seems that someone wasn’t paying attention well enough to stop the card from being sent. The funny thing is that Adams says he rarely shops at Boots and didn’t apply for the card. Boots has launched a full and detailed investigation into the incident, but I wonder if an acquaintance of Adams works for Boots and sent this as a practical, not funny, joke.
