Dear Lawrence Edmonds,
From one person who can’t resist a dare to another, I bow down to you for taking this one on. Licking 62 Anglican Cathedrals in the UK in 13 months and taking photographic evidence of it just to avoid having to perform an act of public streaking? That’s really something. The best I’ve ever done was lick the bottom of someone’s shoe on a dare. This was before I became semi-germaphobic. Oh, and one time I climbed a tree in a cocktail dress. I have a picture of it. I can show you if we meet. Keep reading »
I believe I have discovered the saddest eBay auction ever. Albuquerque woman, Lori N., was auctioning off her “slightly used soul” for $2,000. Formerly a freelance writer, Lori’s life changed completely after being hit by a drunk driver five years ago. She was in a coma, and suffered a stroke, many broken bones, a collapsed lung and lost one of her breasts. She figured since her body was shot, she might as well market her soul. For bidders on Lori’s soul, she wanted to make it clear that what she would deliver is the “opportunity to save [her] soul.” Along with the purchase will come a “certificate detailing the white and black marks on [her] soul.” A spiritual car facts of sorts.

Emily Pounde and Hannah Jagger arrived at their prom dressed up in their gowns but encased inside giant Barbie boxes.
Pounde’s “mum” is the mastermind behind these nearly $400 creations, made out of plywood and Perspex. ”After all the feedback the girls’ entrance got, I’d say it was worth the effort,” Christine, Pounde’s mother, told the Western Gazette. Keep reading »
Bras, braces, makeup are all rites of passage for many teen girls. But if you’re a member of the Marshall family, so are boob jobs.
Britney Marshall, a 14-year-old from Nottinghamshire, England, is the youngest girl of the Marshall family and the only one without breast implants. Her mother, Chantal Marshall, told the Sun, “Britney is going through a funny phase at the moment and saying she doesn’t want to get her boobs done.”
And Marshall really wishes she would, telling the Sun:
“At the moment she doesn’t really have what I would say are boobs — but I’d like her to follow in her sisters’ footsteps… I really love the fake look of my girls and I know Britney will go that way when she’s a bit older.” Read more…
