Fancy Babies Have Their Own Hot Tubs Now

Babies are so lazy. They lie back in their strollers and get pushed around everywhere. They’re given everything they want just by screaming and crying. They’ve even got people wiping their butts. Babies just got even more obnoxious: that is, the babies with their very own hot tub. A bath and shower company has launched the $2,185 BluBleu hot tub for very fancy babies. Ten air jets will pump bubbles on their tiny tuchuses and underwater LEDs will emit blue, indigo and violet lights for “chromotherapy,” aka color therapy. We’re certain these babies will land themselves in actual therapy when they outgrow this miniature hot tub in 12 months.  [The Week]

What’s the absolute worst thing you can do as a mother? Oh, I don’t know … TRY TO SELL YOUR BABY. Like 33-year-old Bridget Wismer of Delaware (pictured above), who was charged with felony child dealing when she allegedly tried to sell her newborn son to a gay couple for $15,000. And she did all of this for a crummy trip to Disney World.

Tanning Mom Patricia Krentcil photos
We can’t hide it. We won’t deny it. We are fascinated, strangely fascinated, with Tanning Mom, the New Jersey mother who was arrested for child endangerment for allegedly taking her her five-year-old to the tanning salon. We frankly aren’t sure if she suffers from body dysmorphia of some sort (likely) or she’s just an elaborate ruse a la fellow tanning aficianado Courtney Stodden.
But either way, Patricia Krentcil leaves us with a lot of questions. Keep reading »

Sex Robots A Reality By 2050, Researchers Predict

Human prostitutes could be a thing of the past by 2050, as more and more robots get pimped into prostitution.

That’s the future envisioned by Michelle Mars and Ian Yeoman at Victoria University of Wellington, who have released a report suggesting that lifelike robots will be coming to a brothel near you.

Mars and Yeoman see lots of advantages to having “hoe-bots” doing the dirty work instead of humans, such as “commercial sex robots would be free of disease and would reduce the trafficking of real people,” they told The Week. Read more…

Thoughts On The Zoo Keeper Who Licked A Monkey’s Butt To Save Its Life

So, a zoo keeper in China took on the incredibly gross but selfless task of licking a monkey’s butt to save its life. A leaf monkey at the Wuhan Zoo became dangerously constipated after it ingested a peanut that had been thrown in its enclosure. Zhang Bangsheng determined that the peanut was too large to pass through the monkey’s system on its own and therefore had to be extracted manually by licking and sucking it out. After the jump, Jessica and I discuss over IM. Keep reading »
