You know how sometimes you go to the hairdresser asking for just a trim, but you worry that they’ll get chop-happy and cut off more than you asked for? Well, imagine that happening to your penis.
A man named Johnny Lee Banks Jr. recently went to the hospital for a routine circumcision (in as much as getting circumcised as an adult is routine), and woke up from surgery to find that they had amputated his penis. We’re talking gone with the wind, people. Rightfully so, Johnny and his wife, Zelda, are now suing the Princeton Baptist Medical Center in Alabama for the botched job and for their personal suffering from the incident. Keep reading »
Another day, another fool trying to shove things up his butt to hide them from cops. This time, 35-year-old André Silva de Jesus was visiting his local prison in Ribeirao das Neves, Brazil, when he appeared “nervous,” and was pulled aside for an inspection. Claiming he had a pacemaker, André informed the prison guards he couldn’t go through the metal detector.
Little did cops know that they would ultimately find enough crap to rival an entire “Storage Wars” unit, all tucked away in his tush. Keep reading »
Selfies strike again.
Breanna Mitchell, 18, of Roanake, Alabama, graduated from high school this year. In June, she celebrated this milestone by traveling to Europe with her grandmother and visiting Poland. Like many teens, Breanna documented her trip on social media. Sounds like a great story so far, right? The ugh moment is that Breanna snapped a smiling selfie at Auschwitz, posing in front of nondescript buildings with the caption “Selfie in the Auschwitz Concentration Camp” and a grinning emoticon.

Over the course of this week, 11 families in the same neighborhood in San Clemente, California, found creepy porcelain dolls on their doorsteps. As if that in itself weren’t enough to fuel indefinite nightmares, each doll resembled a girl who lived in the house. The girls who received the porcelain doppelgangers were about 10 years old, and most of them attended the same school. The Orange County Sheriff’s Department investigated the situation and found that the culprit was a “female adult” who lives nearby and goes to the same church as many of the families. She seems to have meant well and claims that leaving the dolls was an act of “goodwill.” As the story gained attention, another parent of a five-year-old girl came forward and said wooden dolls with interchangeable clothing were left on the family’s doorstep two weeks ago. There’s no word yet whether the same woman is behind this act. So. Creepy. [The Wire] [Image via Twitter]
If sand fleas, nasty infections, and sunburn weren’t motive enough, getting arrested might be another reason to think twice about sex on the beach. A couple on Bradenton Beach in Florida seemed to think it was totally fine to get it on in full view of dozens of people, including kids, in the middle of the day. Reportedly, people watched, dumbstruck, while Jose “Benny” Caballero and Elissa Alvarez had sex for about 25 minutes. One heroic grandma on the scene got fed up and pulled out her phone to take a video of the couple. According to the epically giggle-worthy news report by Fox 13 Tampa Bay, the unidentified grandmother ”is outraged since her grandchildren saw this, and of course, they started asking questions.” Oh, I’m sure they had plenty of questions. After their first go at it, the couple laid down like nothing had happened and slept for hours. According to the grandma, ”We thought they were dead, but when they woke up, they cuddled for a while, then started into the same thing they did before.” A parent who was also on the beach called the police, who arrived to arrest the two. Caballero and Alvarez were charged with lewd and lascivious behavior and later released on a bond. [Gawker]
Last week, a man allegedly found a rusty nail in his to-go salad from a Manhattan restaurant named, appropriately, “Just Salad.” What is it about salads that attract this ickiness? It seems that every few weeks somebody finds some kind of critter or other not-so-salad-y item amid their lettuce, chickpeas and chopped tomatoes. Make sure you’re not eating while clicking through this gallery of the weirdest surprise ingredients people have found in their greens.
