It’s Potty Training Time At The Sloth Orphanage

Sloths! We love them. This short video was shot at Costa Rica’s Aviarios del Caribe sanctuary for orphaned sloths. If you’ve oftentimes found yourself gazing absentmindedly into the distance and wondering, How do sloths go to the bathroom?, today is your lucky day. Sloths spend most of their time in trees, and come down once a week to take care of business. Because these sloths were raised in captivity, they have to be taught how to use the outdoor potty. Toilet training has never been so adorably sloth-like. [Vimeo] Keep reading »

Magazine Ad’s Cunning Linguist Wants To “Satisfy Your Carnal Lust”

Some unfortunate women around the country have to plead with their men to service their downtown real estate. But lucky Manhattan ladies who purchase women’s magazines have been finding handwritten magazine inserts from a 45-year-old bookkeeper named John Westwood, who offers his phone number and an earnest offer…

Good News For Dudes: An Active Sex Life Means A Longer Life. But There’s A Catch.

Gentlemen, it is time for a pants-off dance-off. A new study shows that sex on the regular can help you live longer. After surveying 4,000 men, the Italian Society of Sexual Medicine found that the guys who had an active sex life with a steady partner had fewer cardiovascular complaints and tended to live longer. But the catch: they had to be faithful to their spouses. Keep reading »

T&A That Can Get Past The TSA

RyanAir, the cheap-o European airline, has released its fourth calendar of ladies from its cabin crew frolicking on a tropical beach in bikinis. Proceeds from the 2011 RyanAir calendar, which costs $14, will be donated to a German kids’ charity. While, personally, I don’t care if women want to pose in bikinis for a calendar or whatever, I think it’s unprofessional for a company to do one with its employees. I mean, it’s an airline, not Hooters! Although I know the quality that I most appreciate in a flight attendant is her taut stomach. (Sarcasm again, people.) [NY Daily News]

(P.S. Thanks, John DeVore, for the title!) Keep reading »

Condoms, Not Candy, The Halloween Treat Of Choice From Oregon Couple

Which would you rather find in your trick-or-treat bag: a giant-sized Baby Ruth bar or a condom? I’d take the Baby Ruth, but one couple in Silverton, Oregon, handed out prophylactics — and toothbrushes — to teenagers on Halloween. Lame-o! Dr. Daniel and Kathleen Harris have been treating trick-or-treaters with Trojans for the past 24 years, since the height of the AIDS epidemic, and in his line of work, Dr. Harris has also delivered babies to teen girls. The Harrises say they usually ask kids if they are 16 years old before handing them a rubber. Keep reading »

Conjoined Twin Girls Share A Brain

Four-year-old conjoined twins Tatiana and Krista Hogan are an anomaly among anomalies. Not only are they surviving conjoined twins, and not only are they attached at the head, but they actually share part of their brains, the thalamus. Almost unbelievably, Macleans.ca reports, “There is evidence that they can see through each other’s eyes and perhaps share each other’s unspoken thoughts.” The thalamus is the portion of the brain that processes and relays sensory information, and the twins have a “bridge” that runs between theirs. During tests, a neurosurgeon involved in their medical progress found that when one twin looked at an object, the brains of both twins recorded the information. These strange factors have led some to wonder — are the twins two separate people … or one? Their mother reports they have two distinct personalities, but it’s clear that with their brains intertwined, their minds may be far more complex than we can imagine. [Macleans.ca] Keep reading »

And Now For The Best Line Uttered By A Naked Criminal!

God bless The Smoking Gun for bringing amazing tales about the laws of justice smacking down on criminals. For example! Melissa Lee Williams, 41, of West Virginia, who was arrested for threatening two men with a knife because they declined to engage in sexual contact with her. So, the story goes that Williams showed up at her ex-husband’s place at the motor inn in which they both reside. When Danny Williams answered the door, Ms. Williams ordered him and another man to “eat my p**sy,” as she disrobed. Her ex declined, but the other man, Adam Watson, agreed and began to approach … Keep reading »

Baby Panda Born In Atlanta Zoo

Breaking cute thing news! A baby panda was born this morning to mama panda, Lun Lun, at Zoo Atlanta. Let me repeat that: A BABY PANDA!!!! Lun Lun, age 13, gave birth to a cell phone-sized cub inside a special “birthing den” in the zoo’s giant panda house. This is a huge deal because only 1,600 panda bears exist worldwide and, unfortunately, they do not seem to enjoy having sex. Artificial insemination is how Lun Lun’s gotten knocked up with her three cubs, including this one. Keep reading »

Woman Wins $1.4 Million Settlement For Getting Spanked At Work

And the award for the most awkward team-building exercise ever goes to … Janet Orlando of California, who several years ago got a spanking with competitors’ yard signs in front of her co-workers. In 2006, she won a $1.4 million settlement from her employer, Alarm One Inc. in Anahiem, but the company never paid up because its insurers said no bank would finance them that amount of money. On Tuesday, Fresno County Superior Court ruled that her company still owes Orlando her spank-change. And rightly so! But let’s get to the important part: Amelia, why don’t we have team-building exercises that involve spanking? It would sure beat that time we sat in a circle and each had to tell one secret about ourselves. [San Jose Mercury News] Keep reading »

Guy In Michigan Has His Sex Doll “Reincarnated”

I’ll have to file this story under “I Thought I Had Heard Everything, but I Hadn’t Heard This One.” Dave Cat, 37, hasn’t dated a real woman in a decade. Who’s the Michigan telemarketer been boning? His $6,500 RealDoll sex doll, Sidore. Tragically, after years of pressing synthetic skin to human skin, Sidore started to fall apart. So what did Dave, who calls himself a “doll husband,” do? Take her out with the garbage? No. He had her “reincarnated.” He returned Sidore to her original makers and had them make an exact duplicate of her. Now, the two are back to canoodling on the sofa and having sex on a regular basis. (Want to know how they do it? With lube and electric blanket.) If you want to find out more about these two crazy lovebirds, read the rest of their story at Asylum. Keep reading »
