This series of commercials seem to have lasted from the late 40's all the way into the mid-60's. But it wasn't until today that the jingle hit home for me. You'll wonder where the yellow went..... Did we all have yellow teeth back then?
Ladies! Is your biological clock ticking away but there's no man in your life? Have no fear, the do it yourself insemination kit is here! But what is it and where does it come from? Well, back in 2005, Britian changed a law that affects the anonymity of sperm donors and has since seen a huge drop in the amount of sperm being donated. This has lead to women seeking fertility treatments abroad, and in a growing number of cases, buying do it yourself insemination kits from the internet. Yes, that means you can buy an unknown man's sperm online and use it to inseminate yourself in the comfort of your own home. The kit (shown) contains a sterile semen container, lubricant, a plastic speculum, disposable gloves and sterile pasteur pipettes. You can read more about the process here and order the kit. (Bonus! You can also order a vibrator for men.) Frankly, I would think you'd have to be extremely flexible to do this by yourself.
A man in the UK found two bananas in the same peeling in a bunch he bought recently. He'd never seen one like it, nor have I for that matter. Anybody else?

Michael Ray Ekes was arrested in Haines City,Florida for car theft. When they picked him up he was playing Grand Theft Auto, a video game. Perhaps if he was going to use the game as a training exercise, he should have played it more before actually stealing a car.

Three hundred pound Mia Landingham was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of her 120 pound boyfriend. While they were fighting last August she sat on Mikal Middleton-Bey, the father of her three children, and killed him. That's right, she sat on him and killed him.
