British police officers were seen sledding on their riot shields while on duty one snowy day. Then some sourpuss ratted them out and they were cautioned to be on their best behavior in the future. Let he (or she) who has never surfed the net at work cast the first stone!

Actually I'm referring to older woman/younger man couples. Rich Gosse of Gosse's Society of Single Professionals is hosting a cub convention on January 30 in Millbrea, California. Cubs is, of course, a reference to the young men typically between 21 and 40 who enjoy these relationships. Last year Gosse hosted a cougar convention in Palo Alto which drew 1000 conventioneers to a venue meant for 400. While Gosse hopes to host another large group. he doesn't think the cub convention will be quite as big. The women present will be asked to vote for 'World's Cutest Cub' from the amongst the male participants. The winner will receive a tickets for a Bahamas or Mexican Riviera International Cougar Cruise and a copy of the DVD "Spread" in which Ashton Kutcher basically plays himself.
The Cougar Cruise prize won't be taking place on Carnival Cruise Lines. After hosting one such event Carnival has declined a request to book another. Carnival denies any problems on the first cougar cruise, but state they've decided the theme doesn't fit their family friendly image. Norwegian and Royal Caribbean Lines have no such qualms about hosting the theme according to event planners.
While filming the movie G.I. Joe actor Channing Tatum received a scalding injury to his penis. At the link he talks about his ride to the hospital and how the injury happened. OUCH!!
Okay, so here's the thing, if you are going to have a snake as a pet it probably shouldn't be a poisonous one. But, if you just have to have a venomous pet snake then you probably shouldn't handle it while drinking. More importantly, if you have a venomous pet snake and if you handle it while drinking then you really should not put it's head in your mouth. Oh well, some people never listen!
Because airport security is such a positive experience children are clamoring for toys to play make-believe security checkpoint with playmobile offers us the Playmobile Security Checkpoint. The best part about the Amazon order page is the customer feedback. It's tongue in cheek and very funny.
