Snapped at your roommate this morning? Cut someone off in traffic? At least you don’t feel as bad as the cameraman who stepped on and squished to death this adorable earless baby bunny right before he was to be presented to the world in a press conference.
Til the 17-day-old bunny was enjoying the high life at a German zoo, where he attracted fans both for a genetic defect that made him without ears but also for his sheer adorableness. I mean, look at that face. But it all came to an abrupt end earlier today. The no-doubt camera shy rabbit buried himself in a pile of hay, a newspaper cameraman stepped backward into it, and bada bing, bada boom, that press conference had to be cancelled. “It was a direct hit,” said the zoo director, which I vote should be a contender for Best Quotes of 2012.
Such a shame. Til could have been the new Knut, the new Bubbles, the new Boo … the new Kim Kardashian. [AP]
Thank you, “My Crazy Obsession,” for never failing to amaze me. Their latest episode featured a British couple, Bob and Lizzie, who own the world’s largest collection of sex dolls. Spending $150k on 240 (!!!) life-sized sex dolls would seem crazy enough to land the couple on the show, but just when you think it couldn’t get any stranger, they admitted during an interview that the sex dolls aren’t used for sex, only for “company.” Keep reading »
Cheaters beware: you may be killing yourself. A new American Heart Association study finds that men who die of heart attacks were more likely to be cheating. An analysis of 6,000 autopsy reports of people who died of sudden heart attacks (1 percent died while getting it on) found that 90 percent of the people were men and three-quarters of them were cheating. I am really curious if the autopsy descriptions went something like “male, 42 years of age, 6-foot-2, was cheating on wife.” Otherwise, how the heck did they know which participants were cheaters?
In any case, scientists blame the increase incidence of heart attack in cheating men on stress, overeating and sex with “younger ladies” who literally over-work their partners’ hearts! So, point being, if you’re going to cheat, perhaps consult with your cardiologist first. [PostNoon]
Police have charged a Pennsylvania man with hiding a remote listening device under his estranged wife’s bed that he said he used to avoid overhearing her sex life in the house they still shared.
Raccoon Township police say 66-year-old Wayne Comet Cripe’s wife contacted them after finding the transmitter under her bed last month. Read more …
Now wait just a minute. Someone must have ventured inside my brain and pulled the idea for the Speech Jammer right out of my secret fantasies. Let me understand this correctly: The Speech Jammer is a laser gun you can point at someone’s mouth when you want them to shut the hell up? A magic device that interrupts boring speeches, annoying conversations, ridiculous rants? Might the Speech Jammer be the answer to all the world’s problems? Imagine the endless possibilities. This is like Nobel Peace prize material. Where can I get one and how soon? One more question: Is there a similar device for irritating noises? Loud sneezes, jackhammering, high-pitched laughter? These must be eradicated as well. [Oddity Central]
