What The Heck Is 4chan?

When I first went to 4chan.org, I didn’t know what the heck was going on. It’s a pretty plain-looking site with long lists of random topics that users can click on. However, once I unlocked the secrets of this site, I realized that it’s basically like an internet army. It’s turned into a place where people suggest pranks and get lots of others to participate. The peeps on this site make rumors so widespread that people think they’re true, they rig person-of-the-year contests and are even the ones behind Rickrolling, an internet bait-and-switch where users are tricked into clicking on a link that looks relevant—say, a trailer for “Grand Theft Auto IV”—only to find the music video for “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley. After the jump, some other famous 4chan hijinx — some funny, others not so much.

Sweet! Husband Gifts Wife A Chocolate-Covered iPad

Hubby Stefan Magdalinski knew that his wife, Kay, wanted an iPad for her birthday. But like a wily scamp, Stefan did not want to make it easy on her. Instead of using the obvious Apple box, he wrapped her iPad in plastic and had his friends who run a London chocolate shop dip it in frozen chocolate carbonite! The result? A gift that for Kay looks like a giant chocolate bar, but is actually a dream toy for an “Apple nut.” Dude totally should have gotten a blowie after that one. See one more photo, after the jump … [Unplggd] Keep reading »

Black Parents Confused When They Give Birth To White, Blond Baby

A black Nigerian couple got quite the shock when wife Angela Ihegboro gave birth to a baby … who is a white, blond-haired, blue-eyed girl. The birth left both parents speechless for several minutes, before the father, Ben, broke the silence with, “What the flip?” What the flip, indeed! Scientists have yet to come up with a solid answer, but have narrowed it down to three theories. Genetics experts believe that baby Nmachi’s differences are a result of a gene mutation, a long-term dormant gene, or a mutated version of an albino gene condition. Regardless of what science figures out, the Ihegboros already have their answer. “She’s a miracle baby,” said Angela. Spoken like a proud mama. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Who Has The Biggests Boobs In The World?

Today, The Smoking Jacket investigates which woman in the world has the biggest boobs. Recently, Sheyla Hershey made headlines when she experienced complications while undergoing her umpteenth boob job on her 38-KKK breasts. While she was touting herself as having the biggest breasts in the world, does she really? In fact, Guinness awarded the world record holder title to Maxi Mounds, whose bra size is 61-MMM. But yet another contender claims a 153-XXX cup. I think the world of super-sized boobs is more than I can handle. [The Smoking Jacket] Keep reading »

Woman Is Pregnant With Two Babies Who Aren’t Twins

A Utah woman was shocked to find out that she was pregnant with two babies that aren’t twins. One fetus is five weeks and four days old, and the other is six weeks and one day old. So how did this happen? Angie Cromar, who has didelphys or double uteruses, beat the one in five million odds to conceive in both her uteruses. This rare condition wasn’t a factor in her other pregnancies, but now she and her husband are “a little nervous” about complications, like pre-term labor and low birth weight. Still though, the parents, their family, and the medical community are really excited about the babies. [Impact Lab] Keep reading »
