Cherelle May Dudfield, my new favorite extrovert, is in a little less trouble today than she was in September, when shortly following her drunken stroll into traffic, she was struck by a car. The driver apparently found Cherelle standing in the middle of a traffic island, flashing him, a little distracting. The car did slow down, but it still ran right into her. “She rolled up onto the hood and cracked the windscreen before she came down with some minor injuries and was taken to hospital,” said the police.

You best get crackin’ on completing those 2009 resolutions, because the “10,” as in 2010, has already been installed and tested in preparation for the New Year’s Eve ball drop ceremony in Times Square. [12/16/2009, New York City] Keep reading »
If you saw “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant” on TLC, you probably can’t stop wondering how it is possible for a woman not to know she’s pregnant and then slip into a bathroom stall and drop one out? It just seems so incomprehensible to me. How could you miss all of the signs—like the 20 pounds of weight gain in your belly or no period for nine months? Not so subtle, people. In Chile an Olympic weightlifter, Elizabeth Poblete, was in the gym training for a competition when she felt a little bit sick. Wait for it … then she picked up a dumbbell and popped out a baby boy. Surprise! Keep reading »
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg doesn’t want anyone in this city to have any fun. First, he banned smoking in bars, then trans-fats, then he made all chain restaurants post the number of calories in each item, so that you can’t order the chips and guacamole at Chipotle in peace. Now, the New York Department of Health is taking on soda in these uber-gross PSA
ads that show oozing, dripping fat being poured out of soda bottles before people take a swig. Seriously stomach-turning. Do you think these ads have a point, or do we have bigger fish to fry than folks having a can of Dr. Pepper when they want? Keep reading »
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 »
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 »
