Shortly after a meeting with a fortune teller, a British woman locked her childrenin their rooms, confiscated their lightbulbs, toys and mattresses and later made two of them work as slaves for Roma people, otherwise known as gypsies, prosecutors said. The abuse apparently lasted for six years.
Linda Clappison, of Keyingham Marsh, East Yorkshire, was convicted of two counts of child cruelty. She was sentenced to three years in prison, according to the Telegraph. Before a fortune teller told her to submit her children to this abuse, Clappison was a fine mother, her children testified. Read more …
As my coworkers and roommates over the years can tell you: I have louder, and thereforefunnier, than average hiccups. The involuntary diaphragm spasms also have great timing, always managing to show up just as I’m about to finish a sentence like “No, I just have the hiccups,” or “Just give me a chance to hold my breath for a bit,” or “Shhhhhh.”
And while usually I can rid myself of them by manhandling my diaphragm by taking very deep breaths in and out, Mallory Kievman has done me one better by inventing a lollipop that cures hiccups in her kitchen. She is only thirteen. Read more …
Dear Guy Who Legally Changed His Name To Tyrannosaurus Rex,
Last week you were just a regular 23-year-old guy named Tyler Gold from York, Nebraska. Then you went to court and filed a motion to change your name to Tyrannosaurus Rex, telling a judge you wanted to do it because it was “cooler” than your original name (totally true, by the way). When you walked out of that courthouse your legal name was Tyrannosaurus Rex Joseph Gold, and suddenly I want to marry you and have tons of little T-Rexes. Use those comically short arms of yours to give me a call sometime. I have a feeling you could be the Lizard King of my heart.

Catherine Scalia (aka Hot Dog Hooker), is back on the streets and offering “a wiggle with your wiener.” Wonderful slogan, by the way. I hope I have the opportunity to work that into conversation today. Even though she pleaded guilty to misdemeanor prostitution after giving an undercover cop a side of lap dance with his hot dog last week, she is adamant that she isn’t a hooker. Hooker’s suck and f**k, strippers wiggle. She’s a stripper. So please, refer to her as “Hot Dog Stripper” when you order your wiener/wiggle combo. Or we could call her Hot Dog Mom since she has four teenage sons. I really want Hot Dog Stripper and Tanning Mom to do a reality show together. I’d love to watch those two conversate. [Bossip]
