Can My Vanilla Make Out With Your Chocolate?

Our buddy Copyranter points us to this freakishly erotic ad for Italy’s Zaini milk chocolate. Why, it’s almost … pornographic. If you’re into food porn, that is. Vanilla is really tonguing the hell out of chocolate, no? I don’t know if this makes me want to eat a chocolate bar. Oddly, I think it does. Are they going to release the hardcore version soon? One can hope. [Copyranter] Keep reading »

The Duggar Family’s 19th Child Has Arrived

Michelle and Jim Duggar (not to be confused with their procreating son and daughter-in-law, Josh and Anna) added baby number 19 to their ever-growing family yesterday evening. Michelle was taken to the hospital for a gallstone, and Josie, the newest J-name, was delivered by emergency C-section. She weighed just 1 lb., 6 oz. and is currently in the NICU for extended care.

More surprising than the Duggars having another baby is their choice for Josie’s middle name: Brooklyn. David and Victoria Beckham certainly do know how to start trends. [People] Keep reading »

2 Female Teachers Caught Nakey In A Classroom Together

High school talent shows make me want to do many things. Wear earplugs. Break out into hives. Run. But they in no way, shape, or form make me want to take off my clothes. That wasn’t the case for two female teachers at a Brooklyn high school, who a janitor found “undressed” in a classroom together while their students were at a talent show. French teacher Cindy Mauro, 33, was known around the school for dressing super sexy and having lots of tats. Students said married Spanish teacher Alini Brito was pretty and friendly but not outwardly sexy. Hey, opposites attract, right? School officials won’t comment and students aren’t even supposed to bring up the subject in class but that hasn’t stopped them from setting up a Facebook group so they can gossip about this craziness. The teachers are currently being investigated and, in the meantime, have been reassigned. What do you think should happen to them, if anything? [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Would You Sue The Other Woman For Alienation Of Affection?

If you ever, like Elin Nordegren, have the misfortune of finding out that an “outsider” has been interfering in your marriage, and you happen to live in Hawaii, Illinois, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Dakota or Utah, there is something you can do—sue said third-party for “alienation of affection.” These laws date back to the days when women were considered their husbands’ property, so seducing your neighbor’s wife would have been regarded kind of like theft. Archaic as the attitude is, the alienation of affection laws are still used by both sexes today, in the states where the laws are still on the books. Keep reading »

Tuesday Night Is Karaoke Porn Night At Sardo’s

Bar owners often try to come up with inventive ideas to fill bar stools and sell bevs, but I think Sardo’s Grill & Lounge, a dive karaoke bar in Los Angeles, should win an award for creativity. They’ve come up with “Porn Star Tuesdays,” a night for the porn industry’s best and brightest to get together and sing some karaoke, schmooze it up, and talk new projects. With clothes on, of course. The owner of Sardo’s says the night wasn’t really his idea—it began accidentally in 2003, when some peeps dropped in after a long, hard day on the set. Six years later, Sardo’s porn karaoke night is as virile as ever. So what’s an average night like? Keep reading »

Pinkstinks Boycotts Kids’ Stores That Sell Pink

Since I’ve always been a blue girl myself, I’ve never gotten the appeal of pink. So I’m kind of intrigued by Pinkstinks, a grassroots group in the U.K. that calls for boycotts on shops selling pink toys and clothes for girls. They say that the “pinkification” begins a narrowing of attitudes for girls—they fear pink may be the beginning of a convention where girls prefer being pretty to being smart. Pinkstinks hopes that by calling for boycotts, girls in the “pink stage” will be more aware of issues like “self esteem and confidence, raise their ambitions and ultimately improve their life chances,” according to the organization’s website. This seems like a bit of a reach, but Pinkstinks feels that forcing pink costumes and princess dresses on girls’ “is leading our daughters up a ‘pink alley.’” Despite that unfortunate phrasing (euphemism for vagina?), I have to admit that sounds plausible. Would I be a heavy metal drummer or a spelunker if I hadn’t been afraid of getting my dress stained or sweaty in my formative years? But then again, can a color really have such influence on anyone? What do you think—worthwhile group or total overreaction? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Free Sex With A Postcard For Delegates At The World Climate Summit

Giggle. Talk about a hilarious attempt by Gropenehagen Copenhagen’s Lord Mayor Ritt Bjerregaard to keep a somber tone while hosting the World Climate Summit (COP15). She sent postcards out to local hotels urging COP15 guests and delegates to “Be Sustainable—Don’t Buy Sex.” Which is strange because prostitution has been legal in Denmark for 10 years. The local prostitute union was not amused. So they are now offering free sex for anyone bearing a COP15 badge and one of these now highly coveted postcards. I wonder if guests like the Backstreet Boys have cashed in their free gift? [Calgary Sun] Keep reading »

German Tabloid Newspaper Erects Giant Penis Sculpture Of Rival Editor

It sounds like our “Tabloid Cheat Sheet” would be much more fun to write in Berlin. Two rival tabloids, the left-wing Tageszeitung (or Taz) and the “highly profitable” (is that the opposite of left-wing?) Bild have a rather hostile relationship, which has resulted in Taz putting a sculpture on the side of its building showing Bild‘s editor, Kai Diekmann, nude except for some slippers. And, uh, his wang spans five floors. Apparently, the art is viewable from the Bild offices and refers to a satirical piece Taz printed in 2002 which claimed that Diekmann had been the victim of genital-enhancement surgery gone awry. But not everyone at Taz thinks it’s funny. The new editor-in-chief isn’t psyched about seeing what he calls “a 6-meter-long schlong” every morning, calling it a “pathetic provocation.” But he also doesn’t want to appease Diekmann by taking it down. I’m no expert on boys, but something tells me that there are worse things you can do to a man than joke about his giant penis. And what about the kinder (children)? Just because they’re German, doesn’t mean they should grow up being exposed to scarily massive manhood at every turn. [Newser] Keep reading »

Get Out Of The Way Of My Golden Shopping Cart

Bling while you grocery shop! To promote the super-fabulousness of gourmet store Okku in Istanbul, the supermarket created a set of gold-plated, rhinestone-encrusted shopping carts. Purportedly, all the “fabulously rich customers” loved them. When I was younger, I used to climb in shopping carts, and my friends would push me down a hill, and then I would crash. Probably, I would not do that with one of these. Anyway, so much for that global recession, right? Somebody pimp my shopping cart, please. [NOTCOT] Keep reading »
