Today’s Lady News: Greek Woman Sets British Man’s Junk On Fire

  • Bringing new meaning to the term “firecrotch,” a 26-year-old Greek woman on the island of Crete poured alcohol on a British tourist’s genitals and set them on fire. The woman alleged that the 23-year-old Brit pulled his pants down, “forcefully fondled” her and requested she touch his penis. She allegedly doused his junk in booze and set it on fire with a lighter. Apparently “considerable damage” has been done to his testicles and penis. [NY Daily News] — Wow, there were really less bats**t ways she could have handled that situation. Poor guy (even if he was allegedly sexually assaulting her).

Connecticut’s “Nurse Of The Year” Not Really A Nurse. And Other Female Impostors.

Betty Lichtenstein, a 56-year-old in Connecticut, is a really great nurse. So great, in fact, that she was dubbed “Nurse of the Year” by the Connecticut Nursing Association last year. The association spent lots o’ cash setting up a celebratory dinner to bestow Lichtenstein with their top nursing honor. Only, it turns out…she wasn’t actually a nurse. Betty Trudel (her real last name) never went to nursing school and had been posing as a registered nurse for years. [Yahoo News]

I won’t lie—any time “Catch Me If You Can” is on television, you can be pretty sure I’ll be watching it. I’m fascinated by people who assume fake lives and do it so freaking convincingly that no one notices for years. So this got me thinking … are there any other women out there like Betty?

Get Your Ph.D. In Textology

What’s the craziest, weirdest text message you’ve ever received? I know I have a bunch of zingers. There’s the buddy who sends me a random text message every six months that just says, “Hippopotamus.” Or there was the time a friend I hadn’t seen in a while replied to my friendly, “How r u?” text with a shocking, “I’m gay, deal wit it!” And of course there are the more fun, unmentionable texts I like to refer to as “sexts.” Use your imagination for those. Well, British graduate student, Caroline Tagg, was so fascinated with texting that she has become the first person to receive a Ph.D. looking at the language of text messaging. OMFG, how dope!

What Happened Before Diane Schuler’s Wrong-Way Car Crash?

We are still reeling from the July 26 accident in New York, where a woman with a minivan full of kids drove the wrong way down the Taconic State Parkway for almost two miles before crashing into another car, killing herself and seven others, including her daughter and three nieces. Earlier this week, it was revealed that Diane Schuler was drunk, at about twice the legal blood-alcohol limit, and high on marijuana at the time of the accident. This incited outrage for obvious reasons—the cover of the New York Post for the day read, “How Could She?” But what has us so grimly fascinated with this case is that, aside from being horrific, it makes no sense. Diane Schuler’s husband, Daniel, claims his wife was not an alcoholic and only smoked weed occasionally. She was an executive at Cablevision and the ultimate responsible chick. So what happened?

Baby Panda Born At The San Diego Zoo!

Mazel tov to Bai Yun, a mommy panda bear at the San Diego Zoo who gave birth to a four-ounce panda cub on Wednesday morning. The baby’s gender will be unknown until the mama lets zoologists near her cub, who was the size of a stick of butter when born.

Bai Yun has given birth to a cub every two years since 1999. That is rare for endangered panda bears, since the lady bears are only in heat and ready for some sweet lovin’ for about 48 hours a year. With only 1,600 panda bears left on earth to begin with, a newborn baby panda is a big deal. (Especially if you’re obsessed.) Keep reading »

Sometimes Animal Cruelty Is Adorable

Why is this pug puppy stuck in a toilet while its owner films him? Well:

“I wanted to snag her up out of that toilet immediately but I thought this was too priceless not to videotape, not to mention I don’t think she’ll ever do it again, LOL! Seriously guys … don’t leave the toilet seat up!! Especially if your pug is used to hopping up onto it while you brush your teeth!! Otherwise tragedy like this could happen!”
