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!

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.
