How Not To Get Fired While Social Networking

First, the story of how to get fired. Hapless waiter Jon-Barrett Ingels had the kind of experience that garners some extra happy-hour attention and gasps over martinis, but it all went south once it hit the internet. He’d served Jane Adams, star of HBO’s “Hung” and when he delivered her $13.44 bill, she turned red and explained that she’d left her wallet in the car but she’d be right back to pay. Jane didn’t return and Jon-Barrett felt stung. But, he felt even worse the next day when her agent called to pay the bill — sans tip. He tweeted about it, and one month later her people saw it. She came in, gave him his three-buck tip, and he got fired. Here’s how to avoid a similar catastrophe after the jump. Keep reading »

Soccer Mom And Husband Involved In A Possible Murder-Suicide

Meleanie Hain, 31, who made headlines last month by showing up at her kid’s soccer game with a loaded glock strapped to her belt, was found shot dead in her Pennsylvania home on Thursday in what may have been a murder-suicide. Her husband Scott, 33, was also killed. Police don’t think anyone else was involved and the couple’s kids were hiding at a neighbor’s house. Keep reading »

College Newspaper Editor Resigns After Campus Freaks Out About Mutual Masturbation Column

Is it just us, or are colleges getting kind of prudish? A week after Tufts banned having sex in your dorm when your roommate is present, Towson University is up in arms over a column that ran in the campus newspaper, The Towerlight. A student who goes by the pen name “Lux” writes a regular column called “The Bedpost,” and while most of her pieces went by unnoticed, one called, “How to Make the Feeling Mutual,” about mutual masturbation, has attracted a lot of attention. It features racy lines, like “Make a lot of eye contact during the act and there’s a good chance that you will both orgasm around the same time.” (Read the full column here to get more of the idea.) The big loser in the aftermath of this “scandal” is the Towerlight‘s editor-in-chief, Carrie Wood. Administrators asked that she resign, and she’s given in. The whole attitude seems a little retro; I don’t know where you went to college, but in my experience, you’d be lucky if mutual masturbation is all that students are doing. It’s just about the safest sex there is. [ABC 2 News] Keep reading »

“Whatever” Officially The Most Annoying Expression Ever

I’m always on the lookout for ways I can annoy people a little less. Thankfully, the Marist Institute for Public Opinion (MIPO) has released a survey declaring the most annoying phrases in the English language—“you know” is second only to the word “whatever.” Eek, I say both! Thanks, Marist Institute, for making me watch it. Both are officially banned from my vocabulary. Now, if they could only take on these 25 words and phrases. [NY Post]

Quick Pic: The Better To Hear You With, My Dear

And you thought the Bagel Heads were weird! Australian performance artist, Stelios Arcadious, grew a real ear with his own stem cells and then had it implanted into his arm to use as a “remote listening device,” explaining: “someone in Venice could listen to what my ear is hearing in Melbourne.” As if cell phone companies weren’t already hurting enough in this economy!

The New TLC Show “My Monkey Baby” Looks Bananas

There are special people out there in America who want to fill a parental void but don’t actually want any children. Instead of adopting a traditional pet like a dog, cat, or goldfish, these people spend as much as $5,000 to adopt a monkey, often a capuchin monkey that can grow up to 22 inches and 9 pounds. The monkeys are basically toddlers that will never grow up. An estimated 15,000 monkeys live as surrogate children within American families. TLC is currently featuring some of these families on “My Baby Monkey,” which originally aired in Britain. (You can watch videos here.)

Many of the “parents” were empty nesters before adopting their monkeys, or they had experienced troubling childhoods and didn’t want children of their own. Now, these people don’t treat their monkey children, which are sometimes referred to as monkids, like pets. Instead, the monkeys are allowed to eat at the dinner table, wear makeup and designer clothes, have their own decorated bedrooms, and get transported around in baby carriages. Keep reading »

Mother Gives 9-Year-Old Son Pot: Therapeutic Or Psychotic?

Ah, Double X. Welcome to the world of “alternative motherhood.” This week, Marie Myung-Ok Lee delivers an update on why she gives her nine-year-old son pot. Yes, nine. Yes, pot. Why? Well, he’s autistic and allergic. According to her, the marijuana helps him function. The pot is delivered daily by way of cannabis tea and pot cookies. (Oh, a tea party! How fun!) Four months since the start of this “experiment” in getting her kid stoned, Lee’s son, whom she refers to as “Cannabis J.,” has stopped eating his clothes and is significantly less prone to acting out aggressively in school; although, she says, his autism has “become more distinct.” Her conclusion?

“I don’t consider marijuana a miracle cure for autism. But as an amateur herbalist, I do consider it a wonderful, safe botanical that allows J. to participate more fully in life without the dangers and sometimes permanent side effects of pharmaceutical drugs; now that we have a good dose and a good strain.”

Great, I think, reading those words. Congrats on finding a good “dose” for your son. On the other hand, pot is … natural. What do you think? Mothers Gone Wild or Mother Nature’s Treatment? [Double X] Keep reading »

Woman Lives In RV With Giant Man Doll

You’ve probably heard of love dolls for men. But what about women? Artist Laura Zuspan spent a month living in an RV with a man-sized doll. For A Little Pocket Utopia/Life’s A Mess, Zuspan tackled the subject of relationships by sharing a dilapidated, solar-powered Airstream trailer with a “six-foot man/rag doll.” The project was born out of her anger over global warming and climate change; “I wanted to create a project where the idea of sustaining human life — procreating — is questionable when we’re a greedy enough species to destroy the environment that we rely on for everything,” she explains. Zuspan and her mother worked together on the giant man-doll, which has LED eyes and is called Dolly, to “make the perfect man for me.” Dolly has a penny whistle for a penis, “so we can engage in lyrical fellatio.” So far, they haven’t procreated.
