Men: Somewhere In Australia, A Model Wants To Play Twister With You

A new “man-cation” destination called the Lynx Lodge is opening up outside of Sydney, Australia, offering men a paradise locale and a bevy of models on the staff. Lynx Lodge amenities include breakfast in bed, sexy wake-up calls from staff, and back rubs on request! But Lynx body spray (known in the U.S. as Axe) is adamant the “man-cation”-ers will not be in the company of prostitutes, The New York Post reports. Instead, gentlemen can enjoy chaste games of Twister with female staffers, as well a front row seat for mud wrestling.

Paying money to play Twister with a woman who won’t go home with you at night? That’s the new definition of “depressing.” [New York Post] Keep reading »

The Grossest Thing You Will Read About Today

This is all sorts of messed up so I’m just gonna dive right in. A midwife in China is accused of sewing a woman’s anus shut during labor? Why? Because she was allegedly unhappy with her tip. First of all, you have to tip a midwife? Is this standard practice around the world? Weird. Also, disgusting. According to reports, before the woman went into labor, her husband tipped the midwife the equivalent of $15, which, if tipping your mid-wife is a standard thing, sounds pretty cheap to me too. But I digress. So, the victim says she was told by the midwife that she was going to alleviate her hemorrhoid pains, but instead says the pissed-off midwife sewed her anus closed using a needle and thread. The midwife told investigators that she did treat the patient’s hemorrhoids but that she did not stitch her no-no hole closed. Where I come from, anuses don’t stitch themselves, so I’m dubious. Also, I am grossed out and am going to go barf now. [Life of Guangzhou] Keep reading »

Girls In LEGO-land Are Either A Cheerleader Or A Nurse

Facepalm. What kind of bull hooey is this? LEGO has these thingies called “minifigures,” which are little LEGO people dressed up in different outfits. There’s a spaceman. A cowboy. A magician. A deep sea diver. A zombie with a shovel and a chicken drumstick. And even a kick-ass robot! But all of those minifigures — and more — apparently have tiny little yellow LEGO penises. (OK, not really. But they are all boy LEGOs.) The only two that are women are a cheerleader and a nurse.

Geez Louise. I’m actually shocked there’s no secretary or waitress. Keep reading »

New York Times Story On Melons Can Be Read 2 Ways

When I was younger, my friends and I used to take Mad Libs and fill in every blank space with dirty words and then laugh at how naughty we were. Using this as a base for my maturity level, you can imagine how happy I was when I came across a Gawker piece about a New York Times article that can be read very differently than intended. The NYT article is about the increase of farmers growing smaller and sweeter watermelons instead of the larger “picnic” watermelons. You can understand when the word “water” is dropped and you are left with just melons, that things get a little silly. Read on to see the best quotes from the story that can be taken the wrong way.

And You Thought Dancing On The Ceiling Was Hard


A space usually reserved for window washers and people calling themselves “The Human Fly,” the towering sides of skyscrapers are now being taking over by Project Bandaloop. This dance troupe travels the world, trying to redefine how people perceive their surroundings. In this case, that means bounding around on the sides of buildings and freaking me out. I think we’ve found Amelia’s next exercise regime to try out! Keep reading »

Amputee Plays Piano With His Feet Better Than We’ll Ever Play With Our Hands


There’s nothing like an armless piano savant to make us realize that we’ve never truly accomplished anything with our lives. Twenty-three-year-old Liu Wei lost his arms in an electrocution accident when he was only 10 years old. But that didn’t stop him from learning to play the piano — with his toes. Liu appeared last week on “China’s Got Talent” and blew the competition away. Trust us, you’ll be crying by the end. [Gawker] Keep reading »
