I am officially jealous of Conchita, the dog who inherited $3 million and a Miami Beach mansion from her late owner—rich, crazy lady Gail Posner. Now the posh chihuahua spends her days dripping in Cartier, getting chauffeured around to various spa appointments in her private Escalade and being dressed to the nines by her stylists. Gail’s son, who only inherited a lousy $1 million from Mom, isn’t exactly happy about Conchita’s inheritance. Since he can’t technically sue Conchita, he’s suing Gail’s staff, who he believes drugged her and coerced her into leaving her money to Conchita so they could stay in Gail’s house rent-free to care for the pooch. In other news, I found $20 on the street today and got so excited that I almost peed on a fire hydrant. [Dlisted]

Religious fanaticism is just scary. Julia Lovemore and her husband are both Christian fundamentalists with mental health issues. And I’m legitimately heartbroken to hear that Julia killed her six-week-old baby, Faith Lovemore, by stuffing Bible pages in her mouth and then smothering her a year ago. Julia explains what happened. “I sat in my bedroom and I was ripping pages out of my Bible,” she said. “I put some small bits of paper in Faith’s mouth and she spat them out. For some reason, I sat on her, I was crying. I was bouncing on the bed. I don’t know why I was sitting on her. I got bi-polar.” She also doused her older daughter “in white spirit,” though she was miraculously unharmed.
What’s even more disturbing is that mental health professionals knew the Lovemores’ children were living in danger. Keep reading »
Apparently, Bieber Fever and the existence of Biebans is confusing the police. Last week, law enforcement in a Maryland town received a call from a patron at the Mug and Mallet bar saying that Justin Bieber was at the establishment and being served drinks. With word that the 16-year-old Beebs was boozing, the cops cruised over and began searching the bar for “an underage drinker with a bowl haircut and a tiny frame.” When police located the drinker who matched the description, it turned out to be a 27-year-old woman named Katie. The cops mustn’t keep up with the latest issues of Tiger Beat, because they couldn’t tell Katie wasn’t the singing sensation. She said that the police wouldn’t leave until she took out her ID to prove that she and Bieber are not the same person, or even the same sex. I guess it’s a compliment to be mistaken for someone 11 years younger than you, but this also may be a sign that it is time to change your haircut. Regardless, Katie seemed cool with the misunderstanding. She says she gets mistaken for Bieber all the time. Maybe she could become an impersonator? [TMZ] Keep reading »
You’re backpacking through Europe, snapping photo after photo of historical landmarks and luscious scenery, when suddenly you realize: all of your pictures look the same. You’re sick of standing awkwardly in front of museums. Why don’t you just lie down? Click. The latest travel trend is the Lying Down Game (LDG). Started by Gary Clarkson and Christian Langdon, the game has taken off with travelers all over the world and you can now see tourists having someone take a picture of them lying on the ground almost everywhere. There are even rules to the game: The palms of your hands must be flat against your sides, and the tips of your toes must point toward the ground. You can’t even lie on your back: your face must be down. Weird, right? The point is to add a little humor to your traveling adventures and to confuse onlookers. Imagine someone’s shock when you ask politely, “Excuse me. Can you take a picture for me?” and proceed to lie face down in front of them at a scenic mountain overlook. Just keep your mouth closed — the ground is dirty. [Lying Down Game] Keep reading »
Civil liberties nightmare or a f**king great idea? Police in Queensland, Australia, now have the authority to fine citizens $100 to $300 for committing the “public nuisance” of cussing in public. Queensland’s head of state, Anna Bligh, said to expect a 20 percent rise in public nuisance complaints, based on trial programs in South Brisbane and Townsville. Why are Aussies so concerned about naughty language? They’re not. Apparently, swear words are just a moneymaker. Bligh said that targeting public pottymouths (along with those who pee in public and other acts of disorderly conduct) could generate the government some major bucks. Watch your mouths, Aussies!
