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.

Um, Yeah, Right: Man Magically Transforms Into A Woman, Gives Birth To Baby

Coo-coo-bananas story of the day time! A man in Ghana claims he woke up one day to discover he had transformed into a woman and subsequently gave birth to a baby girl. Kwanbena Benie, 24, a “fetish priest,” the West African name for a spiritual advisor, says that when he was 13 years old, he was possessed by some sort of god who told him to become a priest. That same god told him that he shouldn’t have sex with women. Flash forward 20 years, and Benie married a woman and had sex with her, going against the warning he said he was given as a kid. And that‘s when his penis began to hurt. Keep reading »

Woman Arrested For Diddling And Driving

You obviously know that it’s against the law to drink and drive, but don’t be diddling and driving either, missy. Police in Cincinnati pulled over Colondra Hamilton, 36, because her car had illegally tinted windows, but when they peeked inside they saw more than they bargained for. Hamilton’s pants were unzipped and she had a sex toy sitting on her lap; apparently, her front-seat passenger was holding up a laptop playing porn for her to watch while she was driving. Hamilton was charged with “driving with inappropriate alertness” and having illegal tinted windows, but the real punishment is having the world know you masturbate while driving and watching pornography.

Will No One Think Of The Cupcakes? Cupcakes Confiscated In Philly

Someone is trying to keep Philadelphia’s delicious cupcakes down. Yesterday, Philly police confiscated the Buttercream Cupcake Lady truck. And they fined the cupcake lady, Kate Carrara, $200 for violating Philadelphia’s “business compliance” laws

But Carrara, a former lawyer, said she is properly licensed to have the truck in the city. “There’s crack deals a block away and three cops are surrounding the Cupcake Lady? I mean, really?” she said. Plus, Philly is averaging a murder every other day or so. Keep reading »

Vagina Tree Predicts Winning Lotto Numbers!

I’ve never been a big fan of the lottery. I think it’s because of that Shirley Jackson short story where the “winner” gets stoned to death, which seems to be what metaphorically happens when someone suddenly comes into a lot of money. But if there were any way to know that the lotto was fixed and you were guaranteed a win, I could maybe risk those fears. Perhaps that’s why villagers in northern Thailand have been consulting the magical vagina tree for clues? Keep reading »

Teen Made To Babysit For Free As Punishment


I only got in serious trouble once when I was a teen — I was a well-behaved dork, what can I say? I had been stealing change from a bowl of coins my dad had been saving and, once discovered, he made me collect signatures for some sort of political petition in exchange for not telling my mom what a little thief I was. I got off the hook pretty easy, I have to say. But 16-year-old Kirstin Rausch’s dad is not as easygoing, though he is almost as creative. See, Kristin had her friends over at her house later than she was supposed to, so as punishment, her dad took out an ad — with her photo! — for 30 hours of free babysitting in the local newspaper. This seems way harsh to me, and if I were a parent, I don’t know that I would want some teen being forced to babysit my kids for no money. Anyway, the public shaming is really the bigger punishment, isn’t it? Did her dad force her to wear that terrible hair bow on national TV too? How did your parents punish you when you broke the rules as a teen? [CBS News] Keep reading »

Cut Off Your Nose To Spite Your Face

Apparently, Brits have a habit of cutting off their noses to spite their faces on principle. Well, that’s according to Naturally Random, which posted this missing bike flyer that was found on Abagond’s Pics. I actually think the flyer probably relieved some of the frustration the owner felt, even though the bike probably will never be returned. Keep reading »
