Man Runs For Congress Against … His Wife?

There’s nothing wrong with a little friendly competition between partners, but this is just too much. Democrat Linda Fischer is running for reelection in the Missouri House of Representatives and her challenger is her husband, John Fischer. They are the only two running so it’s guaranteed that they’ll go head-to-head but, wait, it gets better … Keep reading »

Boob Job Thief Gets Busted

Crazy boob job stories are everywhere these days and we have one more to add. Yet another woman has gone too far in an effort to make her girls bigger. In 2008, California woman Yvonne Jean Pampellonne, 30, used someone else’s identity to get a $12,000 line of credit so she could get breast implants, liposuction and other procedures. On Monday, the so-called “Implant Bandit” was found guilty of second degree burglary, grand theft and identity theft, which landed her six months in jail. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that no matter how good she looks, it wasn’t worth it. [AP] Keep reading »

Mother To Daughter: “Your Anorexia Is Not Welcome At Our New House”

I’m pretty shocked by this Daily Mail story about a British mother named Sue Blackmore who told her daughter that she wasn’t welcome in the family’s new home unless she kicked her eating disorder to the curb. Oxford grad Emily Troscianko had been battling anorexia for years and when her family decided to relocate she was given an ultimatum because, as her mom put it, “I didn’t want this sad, miserable, energy-sucking wraith casting a dark shadow over my new life.” Woah.

Each spring, Kawasaki, Japan, puts on an annual fertility/penis festival, and a Japanese restaurant in New York City is carrying on the tradition.

“I Spent $8,500 On A Boob Job”

What do you do when you’re athletic and muscular and, well, small-chested? If you’re 30-year-old Susan Combs, you sock money away. “I started a ‘boob fund,’” says Combs, who lives in New York City. “I own my own business, and I said to myself, when I get enough money, that’s going to be my executive bonus for the year. I’m just going to do it.” Read more Keep reading »

A Brief, Yet Slightly Disturbing, History Of The Condom

In case you were curious about the evolution of the condom—you know that rubber thingy that people hate to use but have to—here is an illustrated look at its history, by Corinne Marshall and Jordan Monsell. Next time a dude complains about wearing one, just remind him that you could try it the old-fashioned way and have him put his ween in a tortoise’s a** or a pig intestine. He’ll have that thing on in a jiffy. I’m almost picturing the caption for 2020: “Banana Ointment.” [Mad Atoms] Keep reading »

What Are Your Springtime Resolutions?

Winter sucks. It’s officially over now, I know, but I’ve found myself thinking about its long dark days now that I’ve been enjoying my comfortable outdoor freedom. I’ve been stopping to smell the flowers (magnolias and not roses yet, it’s true, but the point of the saying remains!). I read a book on my porch, about Shakespeare’s post-mortem rise to fame! Suddenly, I find myself slipping out of grumpy carbohydrate hibernation and building up plans and goals. Which got me thinking … what’s with New Year’s resolutions anyway? You make them at the coldest and unfriendliest time of the year. No sooner have you resolved to run a mile then the skies dump a blizzard on you — so back inside you go. I propose a revolution. A springtime resolutions revolution! Keep reading »
