Perpetually Pregnant Mother Tries To Keep Her 14th Baby

A woman in England is giving OctoMom, the Gosselins, and the Duggars a run for their money. Theresa Winters is pregnant with her 14th child, but she’s never actually raised any of her other 13 kids past the age of two. Social Services keeps taking them! After the perpetually-pregnant mother was “taken into care” when she was younger, Social Services deemed her unfit to care for her children. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Woman Sends 34 Co-Workers To The Hospital By Spraying Stank Perfume

Okay, this makes no sense, but here goes. At a call bank center in Texas, 34 people were hospitalized after a woman gave herself a spritz of perfume. At first, a few people started complaining about feeling dizzy and short of breath. Pretty soon, a ton of people were feeling sick. Fire officials were called to the scene because folks assumed that it must have been carbon monoxide or toxic fumes in the air. Nope—it was nasty eau de toilet. In addition to the 34 people taken to the hospital, another 110 were treated on the scene. Peeps still don’t know what kind of perfume it was, but I hope they find out soon so I can make sure never to buy it. Ever. [Yahoo News] Keep reading »

One Person’s Trash Is Another Person’s … Shrunken Head?

Paris-born artist Junior Fritz Jacquet has figured out a unique way to give new life to old toilet paper rolls. In an effort to keep the cardboard cores from clogging landfills, Jacquet turns them into eco-art through a series of intricate origami-like folds, enhanced with layers of richly colored paint and varnish. The result is something like a shrunken head, reminiscent of the faces one might see on a totem pole. What do you think of this kind of crafty recycling? [via Greenwala] Keep reading »

Have A Baby Using Brad Pitt’s Sperm (Sorta)!

Well, I can breathe a sigh of relief. If I still don’t have a man when my baby-making clock starts ticking down, I can get the sperm donor of my celeb-worshiping dreams. A sperm bank in Los Angeles — where else? — has launched a new feature where you can search for potential spooge depositors based on what celebrity they resemble. And lucky for us single Frisky gals, there are matches for each of our celebrity crushes! Catherine can get herself a lil’ mini faux Adam Brody, Simcha can have her own bundle of James Franco-esque joy, and there’s a wee little Ryan Gosling pseudo spawn out there just for me! The only problem is that you can’t actually confirm that your sperm donor really looks like the celebrity they say they do, at least not in the initial search results. But I guess you’ll know for sure when you pop out James Galdolfini’s mini-me instead of a baby that resembles Mark Wahlberg. [California Cryobank via DListed] Keep reading »

The Friday Roundup: It Happened This Week On The Frisky

Another busy week at The Frisky! We had our work cut out for us following all the Michael Jackson-related news, but we found time to blog about a few other important things, like Gwyneth Paltrow‘s detox. If you missed it the first time around, here’s what we were talking about this week. Keep reading »

Cheetos, Cats, & Other Items Used As Weapons

How exactly can Cheetos be used as a weapon? It’s not 100% clear from the police report, but evidently Chester’s delicious cheese doodles somehow figured into a domestic assault when a verbal fight turned really bad between a Tennessee couple. I think I would believe this story a little more if it were between two young siblings, but the fact that the couple are both in their 40s makes this somewhat bizarre. While the account sounds absurd, in the grand scheme of crazy, this is just another example to add to the list. After the jump, some of my favorite items turned into weapons during fights.
