The Japan Pom Pom Squad Cheers In Their Silver Years

The Japan Pom Pom Squad was founded 15 years ago and now has an average age of 66. These seriously flexible old ladies are keeping their bodies in top condition with this sport. But their minds also get a work-out because they have to memorize all their routines. This isn’t at all what I’d want to do in my silver years, but I applaud the Japan Pom Pom Squad for excelling at a sport that’s usually so exclusionary. [Reuters via Dlisted] Keep reading »

Slim Fast Targets Brides With Fat Cake Toppers

Right about now, some brides are in a desperate race to shed pounds before their June weddings. And Slim Fast has come to their rescue with a new ad campaign that features fat bride cake toppers and asks, “Need to lose a little weight before your wedding?” The admittedly clever ads are definitely sexist, but reflect the culture we live in. Grooms don’t worry about their weight as much as their brides are expected to. That’s kind of funny because the only person I know who has tried Slim Fast to shed pounds is a man. He stopped using the product because it caused him to have grossly nauseating gas. And I also remember hearing that Slim Fast could cause anal leakage, so I think any bride would prefer to have a few extra pounds than to offend her guests with her stench and the possibility of a brown stain on her Vera Wang gown.

Check out two more ads after the jump. And let us know your thoughts on the ads. [BridePop] Keep reading »

Couple Ties The Knot In ER After Tragic Crash

A hospital ER, bridesmaids with casts, blood on gowns and tuxes, a dead groomsmen. I’m thinking that isn’t exactly what 24-year-old Lauren Magee and 23-year-old Tom Hanley of Indiana had envisioned for their wedding day. But yet, it didn’t stop the 100 guests present from being moved to tears as they said, “I do.” Keep reading »

Restaurant Charges More If You Don’t Clear Your Plate

An Australian restaurant, Wafu, has started charging diners who don’t finish their meal 30 percent more, after Chef Yukako Ichikawa got tired of her customers’ wastefulness. More accurately, those who clean their plate get a 30 percent discount, but it sounds less shocking to say it that way. Ichikawa’s dishes are all organic and free of gluten, dairy, sugar and eggs. She warns customers with a sign on the door that reads, “Vegetables and salad on the side are NOT decorations; they are part of the meal, too.” Ichikawa works to make everything as sustainable as possible and says that those who don’t finish everything shouldn’t bother returning.

Topless Transgender Women Told To Cover Up At Beach, Spared Arrest By Their Boy Parts

Welcome to womanhood, ladies! A group of transgender women sunbathing topless at Rehoboth Beach in Delaware over Memorial Day weekend drew the finger-wag of a lifeguard when they refused to cover their “surgically enhanced breasts.” Police were called over these tatas! The police chief says these women were not committing a crime, however, because the gals have boy parts down there and therefore cannot be charged with indecent exposure. Now some wackadoodle politician at Rehoboth Beach is considering a specific law to address such a problem. Really, let’s address the real problem here: were these gals wearing sunscreen or risking nipple melanoma? [Los Angeles Times] Keep reading »

Male Porn Star Goes On Rampage, Killing 1, Wounding 2

In the San Fernando Valley, a male porn star who faced losing his job and being evicted went on a workplace rampage last night, stabbing three coworkers, killing one. Stephen Hill, 30, of Canoga Park, who fled the scene and is still at large, was living and working at Ultima DVD Inc., a Van Nuys adult video production and distribution company. Apparently, Hill had worked for the company as a performer in adult videos and behind the scenes as a web designer. He was living in the company’s offices at the time, and he had been told to move out of the premises by that evening. The weapon was either a “machete-type” or a Samurai sword that had been used as a movie prop. If you live in the Los Angeles area and see a man driving a blue 1996 Toyota RAV4 with right side damage and license plate 5YTC423, you may want to call the police. [LA Times] Keep reading »

Oklahoma Inmates Are Dashing In Pastels And Stripes

Ooh, la-la! If I ever end up in the pokey, I hope it’s in Cleveland County. There, Oklahoma inmates have been required to wear pink top and yellow striped bottoms prison garb for the last 16 months. The orange jumpsuit of yesterday is so passé. Still, the new pastels must be a bit embarrassing to rock when you’re trying to thug out while doing time, no? Apparently, this is no clink-y fashion statement or an attempt to humiliate prisoners into never wanting to return to prison again, prison management says. It simply makes prisoners easier to spot if they decide to flee the premises. “If one of them slips over the wall,” Undersheriff Rhett Burnett told NewsOK.com, “we want to know about it right away.” If the warden doesn’t get these escapees, we bet the fashion police will.
