Man Wants To Be Chi Omega Sorority’s Foot Slave And Houseboy

chi-omega-sorority

A 30-year-old man sent in an email to University of Pittsburgh’s Chi Omega sorority asking to be their houseboy and foot slave. It’s always “been a dream” of this creeper and he wants to make it clear that there is absolutely “NOTHING SEXUAL.” Then why? Then what are you getting out of it? I have no idea what a foot slave is? Is it an endless pedicure and foot massage kind of thing or does it mean you are my slave but are only allowed to use your feet to make me mocha lattes? Read the email on College Candy…

WTF: Copenhagen Zoo Kills Giraffe, Feeds Him To The Lions

One of the hazards of being an animal lover is how frequently I forget the ways of the Animal Kingdom: many animals eat other animals. Yes, even the cute ones. Such is the fate of Marius, a two-year-old giraffe at the Copenhagen Zoo in Denmark. Deemed a “surplus” giraffe by zookeepers, on Sunday, young Marius was shot with a pistol and then fed to the zoo’s carnivores. Keep reading »

A Parody Starbucks Is Now Open For Business In Los Angeles

Parody twitter feeds are one thing, but opening a parody business takes spoofing to a whole new level. A store called Dumb Starbucks opened this weekend in Los Angeles. Everything about the coffee shop is identical to a real Starbucks except the coffee is free and everything — including the menu and the CDs — has the word “dumb” in front of it. Although no one is taking credit for the “work of art parody,” a FAQ letter that hung inside Dumb Starbucks claimed that legally, the space is not coffee shop but an art gallery:

“The ‘coffee’ you’re buying is considered the art. But that’s for our lawyers to worry about. All you need to do is enjoy our delicious coffee!”

How To Prep For A Meeting With Bill Nye, According To A Fashion-Savvy 9-Year-Old Girl

Bill Nye Letter

Fourteen years ago, when author George Dyson was gearing up to meet Bill Nye The Science Guy, his 9-year-old daughter Lauren had some very important advice for him. So important, in fact, that it merited a letter with starred bullet points. My favorite is “Don’t wear sweatpants at ALL. Jeans are OK sometimes.” Applicable to so many situations. [Boing Boing]

10 Photo Poses To Retire
These popular poses deserve a break. Read More »

Let’s clear this up right now: taking selfies with dead folks is not an encouraged activity. However, this wasn’t so obvious to a high school student on a field trip to the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Anatomical Donor Program, who took the WORST SELFIE EVER with a cadaver in the lab. Her smiling photo next to the body was uploaded to Instagram, and — surprise! — school officials were not pleased. The photo revealed the cadaver’s face, which is supposed to remain covered in the lab; phones aren’t allowed in there either, by the way. The distasteful image has since been taken off Instagram, and it’s unclear yet whether any punishment was given for the picture. Either way, we’re in despair over  this future generation and the dumb things they do on social media. [ABC News] [Image of a cadaver via Shuttershock]

Is this like the corporate equivalent of tee-peeing someone’s house? How does this happen? [Gawker]
