Women-Hating Dude Kills Three At A Pennsylvania Health Club

Last night, a crazy, woman-hating man fired 52 shots into a ”Latin Impact” dance aerobics class at a LA Fitness health club outside of Pittsburgh. Three women were killed, and nine others were injured before the guy turned the gun on himself. George Sodini, 48, was a huge wack job. He had major beef with women and had been planning this murder for nine months on his website. On the site, he complained about having no control over his life, getting rejected by women, being a loner, failing at an earlier shooting attempt, and his problems with alcoholism. He even listed his death as August 4, 2009, the day the shooting happened.

Woman To Wed Fairground Ride

Amy Wolfe, a 33-year-old church organist from Pennsylvania, is so in love with the magic carpet fairground ride, 1001 Nachts, at Knoebels Amusement Park, she plans to “marry” it and change her surname to Weber to symbolize her spiritual marriage to it. Wolfe suffers from objectum sexuality, a condition that makes her sexually attracted to inanimate objects. She first fell in love with the ride when she visited the park at 13. “I wasn’t freaked out, as it just felt so natural, but I didn’t tell anyone about it because I knew it wasn’t ‘normal’ to have feelings for a fairground ride,” she says. Ten years later, she began a “courtship” with 1001 Nachts, traveling 160 miles 10 times a year, and riding it over 3,000 times. She sleeps with its picture on her ceiling and carries around its spare nuts and bolts to feel closer to it. “I love him as much as women love their husbands and know we’ll be together forever,” she said. Yeah, that’s what she says now — wait ’til she gets tired of picking up his dirty socks and putting the seat down every time he uses the bathroom!

The BBC did a documentary recently on others who suffer from objectum sexuality, including a woman in love with the Eiffel Tower, another in love with the Golden Gate bridge. Check it out above. [Telegraph] Keep reading »

New Favorite Blog: Skinny Girls, Big Sandwiches

In our weight-and-beauty-obsessed culture, there’s something almost fetishized and taboo about an image of a skinny girl eating a big, honking burger. That’s why I’m oddly obsessed with a new site aptly titled, Skinny Girls, Big Sandwiches. It’s a blog “dedicated to skinny girls chowing down and stuffing their gullets full of sandwiches … or tacos, wraps, burritos, hoagies, subs, hamburgers, sloppy joes, paninis, tortas … or just about any combination of meat and bread products.” After the jump, some of my favorite featured photographs.

Quick Pic: Peep This Pink Bunny

OK, so it didn’t arrive in time for my fifth birthday, but this is proof that a little girl’s dreams do come true! There is, as we speak, a pink bunny so big you can spot it on Google Earth! Viennese art collective, Gelatin, has created the 30-foot-high, 200-foot-long stuffed animal on a mountainside in the North of Italy. Best part, it’s meant to be played with! This soft and silly bunny will be on display until 2025, although we recommend getting there before the dirt, dust, snow, bed bugs and other elements beat you to it. Now, if you can’t make it over to Italy, you can get up close with a few perfectly pink and fluffy photos after the jump… [The Guardian] Keep reading »

YouTube Wedding Dance Couple Gets Divorced (Kind Of)

Well, not really, but a production company wanted to continue the fun and choreographed a divorce parody version of the wedding original. Check it out. Keep reading »

Shake Your Way To Leaner Arms And Look Ridiculous Doing It!


I’m a little confused about what people were thinking when they made this infomercial for the “Shake Weight,” but I’m pretty sure they were all men. Why else would they be claiming that giving handjobs shaking a barbell makes womens’ arms look better? Keep reading »

Four Wisconsin Women Hold A Cheating Dude Hostage

Usually when a man finds himself tied to a bed, he’s having a freaky good time. But for one husband, who was cheating on his wife with two women, what sounded like sexy time with one of his lovers was really a revenge plot. When she found out her man was sleeping around, instead of going after her husband’s two lovers, the wife contacted them and they banded together in the name of scorned women everywhere. The girls got scheming, and a few days later put their very “9 to 5″ plan into action. The husband thought he was meeting lover Therese Ziemann for a tryst at a Wisconsin motel. He allowed her to tie him to the bed with the sheets and to blindfold him for a “massage.” Ziemann quickly texted the man’s wife, his second lover and, just for kicks, her own sister, who was secretly waiting outside. The women burst into the room and began taunting the bound man. But they really “stuck it to him” when Ziemann super-glued his penis to his stomach. The man eventually got loose by chewing off his sheet cuffs and calling the police. Now, the women face charges of assault and false imprisonment for their creative revenge tactic. Too bad that the whole cheating-on-your-wife-with-multiple-women part isn’t punishable by law. [MSNBC] Keep reading »

Mother Finds Her Baby Up For Adoption On Craigslist

It’s amazing what you can sell on Craigslist these days. But instead of being amused, one mother got the shock of her life when she looked online and saw that her baby was up for adoption. A woman tipped off Massachusetts mother, Brenna, after she saw an ad on Craigslist for the adoption of Brenna’s son, Jacob. Worried and confused, Brenna checked out the ad. Turns out some man was using her son’s picture in an online adoption scam. The post advertised the adoption of a Canadian baby boy living in a orphanage in Cameroon, even though Jacob was safe at home in Massachusetts. He’d taken the picture of Jacob from his family’s public blog on WordPress. [CNN] Keep reading »

Sugar Ray Loves Cougars

Mark McGrath and his band Sugar Ray are really into cougars. So much so, that they’ve named their latest album Music for Cougars. While I’m slightly offended that they’re targeting such a specific demographic (oh, and I normally want to vom in my mouth upon hearing the term ‘cougar’), McGrath and his buddies are totally into these ladies. About the word, McGrath says, “There’s no negative slant. It’s a word of empowerment. Cougars are great!” He’s particularly fond of Vicki from “The Real Housewives of Orange County.” He even titled the track “She’s Got The (Woo-Hoo)!” after her customary greeting from the show. While the blonde O.C. mom may be flattered, I have to say if there was ever a reason not to purchase an album, I think naming a song after the most unbearable woman on a Bravo series would be a pretty solid rationale.
