Snooki, Michele Bachmann Make Worst Scientific Claims Of 2011

From whale sperm to colon cleansers to the shape of a woman’s foot when she has an orgasm, celebrities did not disappoint during 2011 with their penchant for peddling suspect science in the world’s media.

In its annual list of what it considers the year’s worst abuses against science, the Sense About Science (SAS) campaign named reality TV star Nicole Polizzi, Republican presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann and American singer-songwriter Suzi Quatro as top offenders, with their dubious views on why the sea is salty, the risks of cervical cancer vaccines and the colon.

“Pink Sparkly And All Things Nice” (pictured above). That’s what UK woman Charlotte Price changed her name to. Why? Ding, ding, ding! Because she loves the color pink. The mother of three is so obsessed that she only wears pink, lives in a pink house, and works at a pink salon. Her family calls her “Pink Nice” or “mum” for short since “Pink Sparkly And All Things Nice” is a bit of a tongue twister. I’m considering changing my name to “Likes To Drink Coffee In Bed And Look At Tumblr” or “Cat Hater Cookie Lover.” Thoughts? [Mirror UK]

Disaster! 40,000 Pounds Of Ice Cream Spilled On The Highway

Friday was a sad day, for on Friday we lost 40,000 gallons of ice cream when a truck overturned on the highway in Indiana. Will no one think of the ice cream, a-tumbling down across the highway in a slushy pile of dairy deliciousness. It breaks my wee little heart. [Buzzfeed]

According to the Chinese calendar, 2011 was the year of the rabbit, but from our point of view there were too many worthy animals in the news to limit the calendar to one creature. There were many high points in the animal kingdom over the past 12 months, such as an orangutan’s laudable attempt to kick burning cigarettes at a Malaysian zoo. But for every triumph, there was a setback, such as the moose — apparently drunk from eating fermented apples — that got trapped in the bough of a tree. Without further ado, here are the top animal news stories and photos from the past year.

For poor Sharnie, a guest on clearly sadistic Brit TV program “This Morning,” the holiday season is one of terror and horror. Rather than enjoy the winter wonderland, she’s trapped in a never-ending nightmare – the scourge of snowmen that pepper neighbor’s yards and holiday decorations. And so her friends — one of whom sports striking man-bangs — bring in “fear experts” the Speakmans to force Sharnie to face her fears vis-a-vis a skinny, tall, man in a snowman suit. Well, of course.

But really, that’s nothing compared to the prolonged exposure Maury Povich forces his cotton ball-fearing guests to endure. Nor the intense terror that Sandra feels when confronted by kittens. But hey, one woman’s kitten is another woman’s very large bird. [Huffington Post]
