The 34-year-old Tunisian woman who claimed to be pregnant with 12 kids—six boys and six girls—is a fraud. Although this gal said she’s nine months preggers with duodecaplets, docs say, “There’s absolutely nothing about her appearance which indicates this.” In fact, health peeps think the only thing the woman is pregnant with is “psychological problems.” The unidentified non-mother has supposedly gone into hiding. [Fox News] — When are people going to realize that Nadya Suleman is not someone they should emulate? Keep reading »
Is Caster Semenya a woman who looks like a man, or a man posing as a woman? There is controversy surrounding the 18-year-old South African runner who many want to submit to a gender verification test due to her muscular and manly physique. Semenya is a favorite in today’s 800 final at the world championships, and currently, the International Association of Athletics Federations sees no reason not to let her compete.
The general manager of Athletics South Africa denies the claims, saying, “She is a female. We are completely sure about that and we wouldn’t have entered her into the female competition if we had any doubts.” Keep reading »
Here’s further proof you can find everything you need to give your apartment a little pizzaz on Craigslist. A guy who bought a former porn studio is selling off some of its leftover wares, including this casting couch, which was used in films like “Casting Couch Whores #8″ and “Let’s Bust Nuts on these Butt Sluts, Volume 7.” As for the steep price? The seller doesn’t say why he thinks $5000 is a “bargain price,” but I think he’d be open to negotiation, as it sounds like he needs to move the couch fast. “I have to make space for a set for my upcoming production of ‘Gross! Point Blank,’” he wrote in his ad. [Jerks In Your Area via Agency Spy] Keep reading »
Jackie Oh-no! A naked pic of the late President Kennedy’s wife, Jackie Kennedy Onassis, has recently been discovered by archivists in a box of Andy Warhol‘s junk. But don’t get too excited about a possible Kennedy/Warhol affair: It’s merely a snap that porn king Larry Flynt bought from paparazzi who had caught Kennedy Onassis skinny-dipping and used as a poster for his mag, Hustler. The archivists assume that Jackie mailed the photo to her pal Warhol as a joke, signing it, “For Andy, with enduring affection, Jackie Montauk.” Good to know she had a sense of humor about it!
Since Warhol’s death in 1987, the pic had been gathering dust in one of 610 cardboard boxes filled with the pop art prince’s weird crap, including a mummified human foot, a loaf of orange nut bread and a crusty piece of birthday cake. Hmm, sounds like someone had a hoarding problem, although he admittedly held onto some cool s**t. [AP]

When mother-of-three Carmen Blake, 27, unexpectedly went into labor, she called the hospital across the street from her house in Leicester, England, but was refused an ambulance. She was told to take a bath then walk over. Blake got in the tub but realized the baby was going to come, like, right away. She called the hospital back, but they still said they weren’t going to send anyone out. So the mother tried to hustle on over. She made it across the street before the baby, Mariah, started coming. Luckily, a physiotherapist happened to be walking by and was able to help deliver the baby on the pavement. The hospital is “disappointed that Ms. Blake was not happy with the advice and care she received.” Yeah, understatement of the year, guys. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
Childhood is supposed to be marked by innocent playtime, school, and family. Children shouldn’t have to endure anything more serious than parents’ divorcing or the death of a relative. Recently, however, children have been in the news for reasons that would make most adults unable to cope. Keep reading »
Are you ready for this one? If you want to get someone to like you … copy him! As in say what he says, nod when he nods, smile when he smiles. Yes, that’s all it takes. A new study done with monkeys, balls, and marshmallows (yes, you read that correctly) shows that people recognize and prefer those who mimic their behavior, proving once again that humans and monkeys alike are all hardwired to be totally self-absorbed.

The world’s largest cupcake was unveiled this weekend at a car show in Michigan. The behemoth triple vanilla cupcake with pink frosting weighed in at 1,224-pounds, beating the former record holder eight times over and by an estimated 2 million calories…that’s about 1,600 days worth of calories, by my calculations. The decadent beauty took 12 hours to bake and required 800 eggs and 200 pounds of sugar and flour. Slices were sold to raise money for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer organization, so it didn’t go to waste! But I’ve got an issue—what makes this a cupcake besides the cupcake wrapper? If a cupcake is just a miniature cake, isn’t something that big just a cake in disguise? [Associated Press] Keep reading »
Weird alert! Besides enhancing the pectorals of the male species, male nipples can actually play a purpose other than decoration. Since men posses both mammary glands and pituitary glands––the essentials for lactation — they also have the ability to breastfeed. When the factors align properly, some doctors believe that men can partake in nourishing their children in the same way as women. Though this doesn’t happen in everyday circumstances, in some rare instances, men have been the breastfeeders. Keep reading »
