Dear Guy Who Filled His House With Mammoth Bones,
Two years ago, when you found your first woolly mammoth bone in your Iowa backyard, you reacted like most people would, by saying to your sons, “Boys, that’s a bone. That’s a really big bone.” But it was how you proceeded after that that really caught my attention: you dug up that bone (which turned out to be a femur), then you dug up more bones, and more, and more. You brought in construction equipment and paleontologists to help, and then you put all the bones in your living room. With your backyard bone collection rapidly growing, you told a local news station that you’re considering adding another room to your house to assemble the skeleton. Perhaps you could make room for me too? [NBC Los Angeles]
Oh, Florida what strange gifts you deliver us. This month is officially Naked Ladies On The Roadside month. On Tuesday, Tracy Mabb was arresting for causing a traffic hazard by exposing herself. “She first started by pulling off her top and revealing her breasts, but didn’t stop there. She also gave drivers and pedestrians a full view of her ‘vagina and buttocks.’ The arrest reports claims that she did so with a ‘complete vulgar and indecent manner.’ When confronted by police, she refused to put her clothes on, and shouted, ‘I don’t give a f**k,’” the Sun Sentinel reported.
At least she didn’t pleasure herself like the woman last week. What do we think? Are bath salts to blame here? Whatever the cause for her indecent exposure, her mugshot it epic. Is it just me or does she kind of look like Dave Pirner from Soul Asylum? Click on through for more amazing female mug shots. [The Gloss]
Some marriage-phobic guys get cold feet. This one got a wrung neck.
Nikoleta Karoly of East Naples, Fla., is accused of choking her boyfriend because he refused to marry her for the purpose of getting a new Visa, according to an arrest report filed earlier this month and sent to The Huffington Post.
As first reported in the Naples Daily News, Karoly’s boyfriend told police that she had been getting increasingly violent with him, after he kept refusing to tie the knot.
The boyfriend said Karoly choked, scratched and slapped him so hard on his ear that he thought he was going deaf, the report states. Read more …
Health care reform what? Syria who? President Obama is just the latest celeb to cover that super catchy “Call Me Maybe” song. It’s cute, but it’s most redeeming quality is 100 percent less Donald Trump than the Miss USA pageant contestant cover. [MTV.Tumblr.com]
Are you a serious bookworm? Do you find the scent of the printed page borderline orgasmic? Are regular perfumes not quite paper-y enough for you? Sounds like you might want to check out Paper Passion, a new fragrance that smells like–you guessed it–books. Created by a master perfumer in collaboration with Wallpaper magazine, with packaging designed by Karl Lagerfeld (naturally!), Paper Passion is “an opportunity to celebrate all the glorious sensuality of books, at a time when many in the industry are turning against them.” One bottle will set you back $115, but when you consider all the awesome book nerds you’ll attract with every spritz, it seems a small price to pay.

When a single act of cannibalism is reported, it is as unfathomable as it is unsettling. To have five such incidents dominate the news cycle — as was the case this week — seems almost unprecedented.
All but one of the following cases are alleged crimes. They range from an international manhunt for a suspect accused of chopping up and eating his male partner to a chef who severed and served his own testicles.
HuffPost Crime offers a round-up of the murder suspects and alleged flesh-eaters who captivated our readers this week with tales of horror. Read more …
