Yesterday, while 16-year-old sailor Abby Sunderland and her boat, Wild Eyes, were getting rescued in the Indian Ocean, her father, Laurence Sunderland, told The New York Post he signed a contract for a reality TV show, “Adventures in Sunderland,” about his kids. “The show might be about family, it might be about Abigail’s trip. It’s something that was shopped around,” Sunderland told the Post.
But then Laurence Sunderland announced he had cut ties with Magnetic Entertainment, the California production company behind the show. “There is no show at this time, nor will there be,” Sunderland said, acknowledging the company did some initial filming. “They were assuming Abigail was going to die out there,” he said. “They were relying on her dying, and so we cut the ties.” Keep reading »
I am willing to overlook the actions of the bullfighter in this fascinating video because he’s hot — h.o.t. — but it is pretty amusing when he flees from the bull running towards him. Not much of a bullfighter, eh? Apparently, Christian Hernandez, 22, the matador in question, had been gored in the leg in a bullfight a few months previous. So, when this bull went on a stampede, Hernandez promptly turned tail and ran like a small child running from a neighbor dressed up like a ghost on Halloween. Mexico City officials then arrested Hernandez for not fulfilling the duties of his contract as a bullfighter; he was released after paying a fine. Now, everyone’s calling him a coward. Everyone, you know, who doesn’t have the cojones to get into a bull fighting ring in the first place. In any case, Hernandez has had about enough and says he’s retiring. “There are some things you must be aware of about yourself,” he told reporters. “I didn’t have the ability, I didn’t have the [redacted], this is not my thing.” Bottom line of this story? Hernandez is still hot, and I love that pink and gold outfit. You can’t say this wasn’t a teachable moment. [Telegraph] Keep reading »
A pinata shop in Donna, Texas, sells the usual Elmo and Batman pinatas, but it also sells one particularly troubling item: a pinata of a topless lady on a stripper pole. Moms who drive past the nudie pinatas told the local news station it’s inappropriate for little kids to see. No one questions, though, whether there’s something wrong with the idea of swinging a bat at a stripper pinata.

Last night, I was at a party when one of my friends started making jokes about “getting iced.” Unbeknownst to me, this “getting iced” thing is all the rage amongst hipsters, bankers and even celebs like Ashton Kutcher. He’s so into it, he even started a site, IceAshton.com, where the first dude to “ice” him and take pics will win a prize. Who knew? And this morning, there was a feature about “icing” in the NY Post. OK, icing, you’ve got my attention. After the jump, the phenomenon explained. Don’t you feel cool? Get it … ice … cool? Stupid, I know. Keep reading »
I have to say, there is something somewhat disconcerting about cake that looks like meat. Is it cake … or is it meat? Your eyes and stomach are in a war. Clearly, the only way to resolve this conflict is to take another bite. Needless to say, Boing Boing points us to this cakes-pretending-to-be-meat slide show. As a fan of both cupcakes and TV dinners, I love this cupcake TV dinner melange. There’s also a T-bone steak cake, a seafood broil cake, that is, frankly, somewhat nauseating, and a Big Mac cake in a box. I haven’t learned how to cook a chicken yet, so these are all pretty much beyond me, but I would eat them, no problem. [Boing Boing] Keep reading »
Oh, high school, I don’t miss you one little bit.
virgins students at the all-boys Landon School in Bethesda, Maryland, organized a “fantasy sex league” where they could earn points for bedding certain girls, The Washington Post reports. The boys planned to “draft” girls they knew onto teams, throw a series of parties which those girls would attend, and then tally up the points.
Fortunately, these Tucker-Maxes-in-training were caught before the first party took place. Three students received an in-school suspension. But after reading the creepy details of what these boys did, that punishment does not nearly fit the crime. Keep reading »
