By her own account, 37-year-old graphic designer Di Coke is a winner — and the record backs her claim.
Coke, who lives in Nottingham, England, with her 38-year-old husband, Rob, is obsessed with winning contests and has done pretty well for herself. In the last 13 years, she’s won more than $284,000 worth of prizes, including more than $50,000 in cash, a pink VW beetle worth around $19,000 and more than 30 vacations to places like Brazil, Antigua, Japan, New Zealand, Switzerland and New York, according to Express.co.uk. Di even won her father’s weight in chocolate once. Read more…
If someone’s been drinking, you usually take away their car keys, not give them yours. Erin Brown did just that and now the resident of Hermitage, Tenn., faces 30 years in prison.
Back in December, Brown, 21, gave her car keys to her boyfriend, 23-year-old Trevor Bradshaw, thinking he was sober enough to drive. Bradshaw wasn’t and, as a result, he struck two pedestrians — Michael Brooksher, 22, and Tommy Allen, 23 — both of whom died, according to the Tennessean.
Bradshaw was charged with vehicular homicide and assault, and, if convicted, could serve a 30-year sentence. In an unusual twist, however, Brown faces the same charges as her boyfriend, even though she had just been a passenger during the accident. Read more…
Too hip for apple juice? Try a babyccino — a coffee drink for babies. It’s what all the urban lumberjacks in man buns are putting in their offspring’s sippy cups.
According to the Brooklyn Paper, coffee shops in hipster neighborhoods are frequently requested to make a child-sized small decaf cappuccino for $2. Another popular “babyccino” recipe is steamed milk and foam with cinnamon sprinkled on top. One barista in Brooklyn said she sells as many as 10 babyccinos a day. Keep reading »
We’ve long been fascinated by/concerned for Sheyla Hershey, record holder of the world’s largest boobs. The 32-year-old Brazilian model carries around size 38KKK mammaries. (Or tried to, anyway. It turns out that carrying a gallon of silicone in your ta-tas is dangerous, which Sheyla learned the hard way when she developed a
staff staph infection and had to have them removed.) We knew that with circus boobs this size, it was not long before Sheyla appeared on reality television. Keep reading »
Most people celebrated Valentine’s Day with flowers and chocolate, but one Portland couple went a slightly spicier route: naked bondage role play in a grocery store parking lot. And it ended the way all the best dates usually do: with a nine car police chase and a pair of arrests for disorderly conduct. Keep reading »
What do you get when you combine celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and a backhoe? This sounds like the beginning of a raunchy riddle, but it’s totally real, and the answer may surprise you. Apparently Oliver was excavating a basement for a new restaurant in Manchester when he stumbled upon some legit buried treasure, including the predictable cache of guns, gold, and jewelry, and one not-so-predictable discovery: Joy Division and New Order master tapes. The total value of the basement loot has been estimated at £1.1 million (nearly 2 million dollars). Oliver has donated all of his findings to the treasury, so it’s unclear what will happen to the haul, but one result of this post-punk surprise is certain: Gothpocalypse! [NME]
