Nothing on the Internet is better than the dog shaming meme: pet owners post pictures of their pups with signs around their necks reading stuff like “I ate my own barf” and “I like to hump this cat.” I keep trying to get Amelia to submit a photo of Lucca but she insists her dog has never done anything to be ashamed of, ever. Anyway, now the meme has spread to little kids. Keep reading »
Gather ’round, kids. Time for your poop news of the day! First, the latest in better toilet technology is the Squatty Potty, a stool that helps you achieve proper pooping posture. Or you can just squat on your toilet seat — but the Squatty Potty looks more comfortable. You can buy one starting at $34.95. The company also sells other potty products. Don’t worry, I’m not even going to bring up baby wipes. I don’t want to incite a riot. I’ve included a Squatty Potty instructional video after the jump. Keep reading »
We’re not followers of Ke$ha’s music, but after hearing about the inspiration for her latest song, “Supernatural,” we’re, well, haunted. “It’s about experiences with the supernatural… but in a sexy way,” she told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show. “I had a couple of experiences with the supernatural. I don’t know his name! He was a ghost! I’m very open to it.” [Huffington Post]
Listen, we’re not totally opposed to concept of their being an afterlife and that some spirits walk amongst us. But we don’t know that we’d be game to get frisky with one either.

Read on for more sexual encounters of the third kind…

A mother in Texas is livid: not that her 15-year-old daughter was paddled at school for cheating on a test — both mom and daughter actually approved the punishment — but that she was spanked by a male vice principal.
Taylor Santos, 15, a sophomore at Springtown High School Texas, allegedly let another student copy her work and was given a two-days of in-school suspension. After one day of missing classes, Santos asked if she could get a paddling instead of missing a second day; she called her mother and got approval for the change.

A male vice principal spanked Taylor Santos instead of a female administrator — although there was a female in the room the whole time. “I knew school policy was females swatted females, and males swatted males,” Jorgensen said. “If Taylor wanted that, I said I would be fine.” She’s now upset that her daughter’s bottom has “welts and bruises.” Keep reading »
Two years ago, I got food poisoning from some babaganoush and barfed inside a downtown 5 train on the New York City subway.
