According to The Huffington Post, a 19-year-old Michigan State University student faces possible charges after being caught by police with 79 pairs of stolen underwear, each and every one of them being thongs.

One can’t help but wonder the reasons behind this fetish—a lack of exposure to thongs on the regular, perhaps? Said student told the police that it was simply a prank and does not have any kind of sex addiction.

Maybe this poor schmuck doesn’t have a sex addiction, but creeping in laundry rooms and stealing up to 15 pairs of panties at a time is definitely twisted.

By the way dude, you can have all my thongs, I’m in the market for some new underwear anyway.

Newlyweds Spend First Night in Jail

Weddings are an exciting time for the bride and groom; a big ceremony, a party, and the anticipation of the wedding night. When most people fantasize about this experience a jail cell is usually not involved.

For two newlyweds in Massachusetts, their first night together was less than ideal. In fact, they did not technically spend the night together, because they were in separate jail cells. The bride had tried to run over her husband’s “old flame” and the woman’s son in a parking lot.

Apparently this bride was not very confident in the fact that she had just gotten married. To most people it would seem as though she had “won” and that this “old flame” should not have mattered, but I guess this bride wasn’t happy with a piece of paper saying that her husband was hers. Trying to kill someone over it certainly proves her point, in a crazy, psycho kind of way. (more…)

Oh my...naked.

Oh my...naked.

In Sydney, Australia a photo shoot was taken at the Sydney Opera House, using 5,200 people. Now this may not sound out of the ordinary, but the fact that those 5,200 people were posing in their birthday suits is.

Yes, that’s right…they were all naked! What’s even odder is that the photographer, Spencer Tunick, specializes in doing these “nude group photos in public spaces.” According to he had these people posing in different positions, outside, for over an hour. A little kinky if you ask me.

I’m sure his work is great, considering he is known for it, but the idea of asking 5,200 people to strip down so that they can all stand together and have pictures taken in a public area, is just beyond me. I know it’s supposed to be “art” and everything, but sorry Tunick, I don’t get the point. To each his own I guess.

The Olympics and pole dancing?

…Yes, I’m serious! Advocates of pole dancing say “it’s only a matter of time” before the so-called “sport” becomes a part of the Olympics. I don’t even know where to begin with this one.

How ridiculous does that sound? Not to mention, the outfits that would be involved, now that creates an awful picture. It’s hilarious to me that some people consider pole dancing to be turning into a “respectable and highly athletic event.” Wow, if this one day enters the Olympics, it will bring in tons of viewers no doubt, but it will make a joke out of the games that are respected.

Virginity going once, going twice…sold! Sounds ridiculous, right? But in New Zealand it actually happened. A 19-year-old girl has auctioned off her virginity on the internet, to the highest bidder, for tuition money.

The police have advised her that what she is doing is unsafe, but technically what she is doing is not considered illegal in New Zealand. The girl has taken an offer that would be equivalent to about 32,000 U.S. dollars.

I do not care how desperate you are for tuition money, what she is doing is completely insane, and the fact that people are actually bidding on this girl’s virginity is sick. Come on, has she ever heard of scholarships? A loan? Or here’s a crazy idea, a job!?

I have no idea how this girl is even going to go to college, because you would have to be stupid or not right in the head to think this idea was a good one. Just think of all of the creepers out there–yikes!

DONATE, don't steal!

DONATE, don't steal!

Every holiday season we see them, we hear them, we give to them, and we usually feel sorry for them as they stand out in the cold. Yes, I’m referring to the cheery people who ring the bells while collecting donations for the Salvation Army. They have become a symbol of the holiday season, reminding people of those who do not have much during the holidays and how important it is to give back.

On Monday, one collector’s night was not so pleasant when, Shawn Krieger, a 44 year old man from Ohio, stole one of the kettles full of donations outside of a store, and proceeded to say to the donation collector, “I can’t stand you and your bell ringing. I hate Christmas.”

Korean Woman Passed Drivers Exam After Test Given 950 Times!

Cha-Sa smiles for the camera, 950 times later!

Watch out Korean drivers! In Seoul, on Wednesday, a 68 year old, Korean woman passed her written drivers exam after taking it 950 times (I bet most of you are happy you don’t have to drive on Korean streets right about now.)

Cha- Sa soon has been taking the test almost every day since April 2005. She supposedly needs her license for her vegetable business. She was obviously very determined, because I don’t know anyone who would voluntarily put themselves through that much stress and humiliation. (more…)

Young Druggie Wakes Up Next to Dead Man

A Texas man was arrested after he was found sleeping in a closet with a corpse. Just a little creepy...

We have heard the same slogan for years, “Say no to drugs,” but it appears that some people still refuse to listen to the simple knowledge that we have had since elementary school. It amazes me that still people do not understand that hard drugs are horrible for you, can mess you up, and in some cases lead to death.

Cody Jean Plant, a 21 year old man from Houston, learned the hard way when he was found asleep next to a dead body in a vacant building. Why was he there and how did he not know that he was sleeping next to a dead guy?! What I really want to know is, how did they end up in a closet? I know they were high, but it still amazes me that of all places to end up in it would be the closet of a vacant building. (more…)

Now that’s a pretty La-Z, boy…

La-Z Boy chair: requirement for all men ages 40+.Imagine: it’s late, you’re coming home from the bars and you’ve had a lot to drink, so what do you do? Walk? No. Call a cab? No. The only logical thing to do would be to drive your La-Z-Boy home, of course!

Sounds crazy, but believe it or not Dennis LeRoy Anderson, a 62 year old man from Minnesota, did just that. After having eight or nine beers back in August 2008 he left the bar in his powered La-Z-Boy and attempted to drive himself home. Unfortunately, on his way he crashed into a parked car.

I’m surprised he made it anywhere with a blood alcohol level of 0.29, which is over three times the legal limit. Anderson was not hurt during the accident and he turned himself in, pleading guilty to a DWI during his trial on Friday.

While this situation sucks, the chair on the other hand sounds awesome. It is a recliner that has a stereo and cup holders and it is powered by a converted lawnmower. Is this what 60-year-olds do in their retirement? Do we work our asses off for years so that one day we can say, “I’m bored today, and I’m old, I think I’m going to make my chair have a motor so I can go wherever I want,” and then actually ride it to a bar?

All I can say is, wow. Mr. Anderson, at 62 I admire you for your inventiveness, but your judgment on the other hand is seriously slipping. It is also a little too late for you to be trying to relive your youth by having a middle aged crisis, which should have probably taken place about 10 years ago.

Anderson received 2 years probation for his actions. Hopefully he will behave better next time and will have the common sense to do what all other people his age do, which does not include acting like a college frat boy.

Apparently Chivalry Isn’t Dead

Picture this: a women upside down, on a man’s back, with her legs wrapped around his head. What does this sound like to you? If you were thinking some kinky new sex position the answer is no… sorry. This is the position that is used by the couples that compete in the sport of “wife-carrying.’

In Newry, Maine, Dave and Lacey Castro became the new champions of the wife-carrying competition. Dave carried Lacey on his back while he ran through an obstacle course that contained a muddy water hole and two log obstacles. The Castro’s are the proud recipients of Lacey’s weight in beer and five times her weight in cash. They will also get the chance to compete in the world championships in Finland.

I am shocked that this is actually real and that people actually treat this like a serious thing.

I personally don’t understand the point behind “wife-carrying”or how it came to be. The only thing I get out of this weird piece of news is that anything can become a sport these days and people will compete in it, no matter how ridiculous it is, as long as beer and cash are involved.
