Man Asks For Water For His Pregnant Wife, Gets Kicked Off A Plane

Lately, the supposedly friendly skies have gotten pretty hostile for passengers. Last month, Joan Rivers was detained due to her suspicious-looking passport, and over the weekend, director Kevin Smith got booted from a plane, supposedly for being too fat. Now, The New York Post reports that a New York City doctor was asked to get off a plane yesterday, apparently because he repeatedly asked flight attendants for water to give his 7-month pregnant wife during a two-hour delay on the runway. The flight attendants claimed that giving water to passengers before the plane is in the air goes “against corporate policy.” Rules like this were probably meant to keep passengers safe—but making a thirsty pregnant woman suffer seems like cruel and unusual punishment.

I Need A Jockstrap Maid, Stat

This morning, I woke up, and I thought, what do I need out of life? And then I got on the internet, and, lo’ and behold, there it was. I need a jockstrap maid, IMMEDIATELY. Honestly, my place could use a cleaning, and I can’t imagine a better candidate to do it than some hot dude wandering around in what amounts to a padded thong. Thankfully, the Jock Strap Maid service offers lazy women like me in 40 cities across the country the opportunity to have a scantily clad hottie scrub their floor while wearing next to nada. According to jockstrap-wearing maid Nate, who needed to make some extra cash when the real estate market went south, he cleans in his underwear at home, so why not make money dusting and mopping? I, for one, am all for it. [Advocate] Keep reading »

More Satisfying Than Your Average Iced Tea

Lipton asked six artists to design labels for its new flavors of Brisk Iced Tea, and our jaw dropped when we noticed Tristan Eaton’s, which illustrates the sweet tea experience. “The inspiration for my design was capturing a moment of absolute happiness and satisfaction,” he said. “Hopefully my Sweet Tea flavor can give us all that taste of absolute satisfaction!” We can only hope sipping a bottle of the stuff will give us as much pleasure as the woman on the bottle clearly feels.

Gay Uncles Keep Homosexuality Alive

A new study by evolutionary biologists might help to explain why male homosexuality persists, despite the fact that the genetic component isn’t being passed down. Apparently, it’s because gay men make such awesome uncles. The study looked at the fa’afafine of Samoa, male homosexuals who are considered to be of their own distinct gender and live in union with their extended family. The study found that gay uncles devote themselves to their siblings’ offspring more than straight aunts and uncles. Also, having a gay uncle meant that the child was more likely to “survive, thrive, prosper, and reproduce,” and the child would be more likely to carry this gene indirectly, “keeping the ‘gay gene’ alive.” I’m not exactly sure what to think of this study, but hey, it’s interesting.

Women Suicide Bombers Hiding Bombs In Their Breast Implants

According to British intelligence agencies, terrorists claim that women suicide bombers are undergoing surgery to have bombs put in their breast implants. Rather than hide a bulky bomb under clothing or in a satchel, a body-implanted explosive device would defy any external check. But is it possible to have explosives inserted into a breast implant? Dr. Craig Person, a plastic surgeon in Maryland, says yes. “You could certainly put a liquid of any kind in a saline device, and a gel implant theoretically could be opened and replaced with a different type of gel,” Person says, and such a substance would be difficult to detect with a scanner. How to detonate such a device likely remains problematic for aspiring breast implant terrorists, though. “What we’ve seen is, at least, the al Qaeda explosives competence, while they are visionary with their devices, they’re not terribly competent with actually being able to get something to detonate,” says terrorism expert and CEO of BERG Associates Larry C. Johnson. For now, breast implant terror remains undetonated. [Detroit Free Press] Keep reading »
