Jane Lynch Will Crown The Charmin King Or Queen Of The Throne

All of you have no doubt dreamed of being the 2010 Charmin King or Queen of the Throne. An epic contest will be held in New York City today to determine the winner, who will walk away with a check for $50,000. To win, contestants will face off in a Toilet Tissue Trivia Contest, followed by a physical competition which will test their toilet paper stacking, tossing, and mummy-making capabilities. Even better—we just got word that the winner will be crowned by Jane Lynch, Miss Sue Sylvester of “Glee” herself. We hope she is getting paid a lot for this, though I have a feeling she might just be taking home a lifetime supply of toilet paper. [EW] Keep reading »

Paternity Test Reunites Couple After 23 Years Apart

A couple in England was reunited recently after over 23 years apart when the woman tracked down the man to give a DNA sample for a paternity test. Sarah Daniels, 42, showed up at Roy Cook’s door after ending their brief eight-month romance 23 years earlier. She was 17 the last time she saw him and pregnant with his baby, although she didn’t know that at the time. She moved quickly to a new relationship and when a pregnancy test came up positive, she assumed her new dude was the daddy. That guy split after baby Danny was born and a few years ago when he reappeared in their lives, Sarah realized there were no physical similarities between the two men. That’s when she remembered Roy and decided to track him down. Keep reading »

Is Reading Your S.O.’s Email A Crime?

Ruh-roh. Turns out that innocent snooping you’ve done in your significant other’s email could get your charged with a felony. A Michigan man named Leon Walker used his wife’s password to log into her email, which led to him discovering that she had been having an affair. His wife has since filed for divorce, but Walker is facing far bigger legal woes — namely that he could spend five years in prison if prosecutors prove their case. It’s going to be tough one, however. For starters, they’re depending on a Michigan statute typically used to prosecute crimes such as identity theft or stealing trade secrets, and this is the first time it’s being used to prosecute a domestic case. Walker’s case will also be aided by the fact that he and his ex lived together at the time of the alleged “crime,” and he had access to her laptop (not to mention knew her password and didn’t, say, “hack” into her account). Regardless, the fact that he’s even been charged should make you think twice the next time you’re thinking about logging into anyone’s email besides your own. [Detroit Free Press] Keep reading »

2 Santas Rob A Supermarket

“Ho ho … this is a hold-up.” That’s what I imagine two guys in Berlin saying when they walked into a supermarket yesterday wearing Santa costumes—red coats and big, bushy white beards. When a cashier asked them to take off the costumes, they pulled out guns and demanded all the money in the register. The cashier obliged and they ran off into the sunset. A police officer later said of the two, “They didn’t look like they were going to be passing out any presents when they came in.” We hope he was joking, but we just can’t tell ..

Norway Giving Its Reindeer Reflective Collars, And Not Just So They Look Cute

In Norway, reindeer are the noble animals that help Santa deliver presents. But they’re also a road hazard—500 of them are hit and killed each year, and many of these crashes leave drivers and passengers severely injured. And so the Norwegian government is tagging the animals with reflective collars or antler tags to make them more visible at night. So far, 2,000 of the nation’s 200,000 reindeer have been given these new accessories. This sounds like a great idea, but I have to ask—is this an initiation to save deer and drivers? Or is it a plot to make Rudolph’s shiny nose less special? [Newser]

German “Octomom” Dog Gives Birth To 17 Puppies


If you thought Octomom‘s breeding capabilities were disgusting, get a load of this bitch. (Dog joke.) A German dog gave birth “naturally” to 17 puppies — count ‘em, 17 puppies! Etana, a Rhodesian Ridgeback from EbereschenhofI, had nine boy dogs and eight girl dogs. When they all want to nurse at once she probably just lies there and hates the jerk who knocked her up. I say we volunteer to get this brave mama a new pair of boobs and some vaginoplasty surgery, stat. [BBC] Keep reading »

NYC Weatherwoman Admits Lying About Attempted Sexual Assault

A New York City weatherwoman who has appeared on “Good Morning America” has confessed to lying to police about an attempted sexual assault. This November, Heidi Jones, 37, of WABC-TV reportedly claimed that two months earlier she had been jogging in Central Park when a Hispanic man in his 30s or 40s grabbed her, dragged her to a wooded area, and threatened to sexually assault her. She said her screams attracted the attention of two passers-by, which scared the potential rapist off, and that two NYPD officers refused to take her statement. She also told police that around the time of her report, the same alleged Hispanic man found her outside her apartment and told her, “I know you went to police.” Keep reading »
