Quick Pic: The Real Giving Tree

This 60-foot tree recently sprouted a weird fruit: an apple bottom. The barked badonkadonk has become quite the tourist attraction Down Under, garnering it the nickname “The Bum Tree.” Ha! [Lismore, New South Wales, Australia, 8/24/09] Keep reading »

Cougars Hit The High Seas!

The only thing cougars love more than the younger men they prey upon is a cruise. Now they can have both because the first-ever Cougar Cruise has arrived! Sponsored by the Singles Travel Company and the Society of Single Professionals, the Cougar Cruise welcomes cougars and their cubs to come aboard from December 4-7. The ship will depart from San Diego, CA and head for the exotic waters of Ensenada, Mexico. Wait … the cruise is only going 70 miles? Well, whatever, the cougs won’t notice; they’ll be so distracted by the scenery on board. The boat has an even bigger mission — fighting discrimination! Keep reading »

Weep, Ladies! The Man Of Our Dreams Is Off The Market

I can’t eat, I can’t sleep—I am overcome with heartbreak knowing that the man of my dreams is off the market. This unemployed father of seven children by seven baby mamas is preparing for a shotgun wedding to the eighth! Being single is hard, and when I think of the kind of guy I’m looking for, I know that Brit Keith MacDonald embodies all of the qualities that I dream of. I only ask myself why I couldn’t have met him before his fiancée, 20-year-old Claire Bryant? The story is sooo romantic. Check out the swoon-worthy details after the jump. Keep reading »

Sold! Someone’s Getting Buried On Top Of Marilyn Monroe

Someone wanted to be on top of Marilyn Monroe really, really badly. Earlier this month, the crypt above Marilyn was emptied out to make room for a new “resident.” The grave space was auctioned off on eBay, and it’s sold for a modest … $4.6 million. In my opinion, that’s too much money to kick it with someone who is already dead, but apparently others didn’t share my sentiments. The spot in Los Angeles’ Westwood Village Memorial Park got 21 bids. I wonder if the winner of the spot in LA knows they have to share Marilyn with Hugh Hefner, who has dibs on the vault next to her.

Guests At The Standard Hotel In New York City Give Quite A View

Earlier this summer, New York City opened the much-touted High Line, a former elevated railroad turned into a lovely urban park, for tourists and locals alike to enjoy. People flocked. It turns out it’s not only the trees and comfy lounge chairs that people eagerly line up for. Overlooking the park is The Standard Hotel, where guests can frequently be seen from the park below performing sex acts in front of the hotel’s floor-to-ceiling windows. “Disgusted neighbors say they’ve seen men masturbating, professional porn films being shot and couples engaging in sex in full view of the stunning High Line park path running alongside.” Huh, no wonder my out-of-town wedding guests couldn’t stop raving about the park when they visited it last month.

Man Steals A Virgin Mary Painting. To Pay For An Abortion. For The Girl He Raped.

This is one of those stories that involves so many layers of nastiness that it sort of resembles a rotten onion. In 2006, a Nebraskan dude named Aurelio Vallerillo-Sanchez raped a 14-year-old girl. When he found out that the young girl was pregnant, he realized he was in deep trouble and was very likely going to get caught. So he asked his son to serve as a look-out while he stole a 300-year-old portrait of the Virgin Mary worth about $100K from Omaha’s St. Cecilia Cathedral. He then grabbed the girl he’d raped and fled with her to Mexico, where he sold the painting for $3K and took the girl to an abortion clinic. When he discovered an abortion wasn’t an option, he kept the girl there until she gave birth and forced her to give it up for adoption. Luckily, this horrible guy got caught, and plead no contest to the charges of first-degree sexual assault and theft. Hopefully, when he’s sentenced this week, he’ll get the full 70 years.

Odd Look-A-Like Plastic Surgery: Woman Pays Way Too Much to Look Like Queen Nefertiti

What do you do when you have visions of yourself as Queen Nefertiti in a former life? You spend a quarter of a million dollars on 51 plastic surgeries so that you can look like her, of course. That’s exactly what a 49-year-old mother of three, Nileen Namita, has done. She has spent more than 20 years attempting to turn herself into the ancient Egyptian Queen. She’s gotten eight nose jobs, three chin implants, three facelifts, two lip surgeries, five eye surgeries and many other minor tweaks. And after all that, I just look at her face and see … no resemblance whatsoever. [Daily Mail]

Namita has been to therapy to try to get over these fantastical visions of herself as Nefertiti. All I have to say is that this clearly is an addiction, and any doctor participating in it is the equivalent of a pusher man. After the jump, other people who have taken the plastic surgery look-a-like thing waaay too far. Keep reading »

Stuff Hipsters Hate

Everyone knows any self-respecting hipster (oxymoron?) loathes Starbucks and, like, working full-time, but until I started reading the blog, Stuff Hipsters Hate, I guess I didn’t quite realize there was so much else that drives them batty. Thankfully, hipsters hate so much stuff that the wickedly funny blog is not in danger of running out of things to cover any time soon. After the jump, nine things you may not realize get under hipsters’ (pale) skin.

Most Embarrassing Facebook Status Ever

Poor Tracy! Overwhelmed with the excitement of getting laid over the weekend, she quickly sent a Facebook message — or what she thought was a message — to the lucky guy who broke her sex drought, not realizing she accidentally updated her status with the racy note. “I must admit,” she wrote, “I haven’t had sex in a while, so getting mounted by such a strong and powerful man was a pleasant surprise after so many long months of abstinence.” About an hour after posting the update, Tracy wrote in a comment beneath the update: “Oh no! Somebody please tell me how to erase this!!! I wrote inside the wrong box! How embarrassing :( ” It turns out Tracy mistakenly invited all her friends to “the love-cave-between-my-legs.” Oops!

British Girl Locked Up For Facebook Bullying

Troubled British teen Keeley Houghton, 18, has scored three months in a young offenders’ institute for bullying Emily Moore, via the internets. Keeley used her Facebook page to call Emily numerous names and even threatened to kill her. One of her attacks said, “Keeley is going to murder the bitch.” It’s unclear why this crazy girl has such a vendetta but she’s been targeting Emily since the two were 14. Keeley has previously gotten into trouble with the law for assaulting this same girl and kicking in the front door of her house… Keep reading »
