The Little Foxes Club

image

I can't find too much information on the "Little Foxes Club," whose mission was to promote African-American female beauty. In 1958, they had a beauty contest in Detroit.

Original article here.

And they were mentioned in this 1966 cheesecake photo.

I can only imagine the loud controversy such an organization would bring down upon itself in these times.

Hung Like A Horse

image
Of course it was a Floriduh man who got a horse penis transplant. The surgery was last year and was successful with full function. He is now under contract to appear in a number of adult films, anyone surprised?? This kind of upstages those South African docs who just transplanted a human penis.

Do You Measure Up?

The average size of an erect penis is 5.17 inches. So don't sweat it fellas.

Polycystic Kidney Disease

Our own WUvian, Tyrusguy, had polycystic kidney disease, in which the kidneys form cysts all over them. Over time the kidneys become very large, Ty's were 20 pounds, and stop functioning. Eventually the kidneys must be removed and the patient must go on dialysis until they receive a new kidney. I say he had the disease because he no longer does since the 'evil twins' were removed on lucky Friday the 13th. Ty came through with flying colors and is recuperating at home. A picture of his kidneys is in extended, not safe for stomachs- you have been duly warned. More >>

Face Bra


Continuing yesterday's theme of weird beauty products, I present the Hourei Lift Bra. From the product description:

you wear the Hourei Lift Bra on your face and it helps fight the smile lines that sadly grow more prominent with age. The band slides over the back of your head and then the frame fits easily onto your nose. Its soft silicone rubber curves will feel comfortable on your skin while the "wire" design will place only gentle pressure on your cheeks.

Over at Book of Joe, they note that this product is an example of satirical prophecy, because a very similar product was featured as a joke on an episode of Ally McBeal, back in 1999.

Nose Secret

What people will do in pursuit of beauty:

Nose Secret is advertised as "the only proven non-surgical nose job option with instant results that you can do on your own without the cost or hassle of nose surgery." By which they mean that it's little pieces of bendy plastic that you're supposed to shove up each nostril, in order to temporarily change the shape of your nose and make it appear more pointy.

What happens if you wear them while you're on a date, and then you sneeze? Also, $35 for little pieces of plastic seems a bit steep. [Via]
