The auction price for Natalie Dylan's cherry is up to $3.7m, which is a lot more than the cost of grad school in Marriage and Family Therapy, which was what the San Diego woman originally wanted the money for. Daily Telegraph (London)

Nikolai Grushevski applied to be a waiter at a Hooters franchise on Texas's Padre Island and, guess what, didn't get the job (and won't let this sleeping-antidiscrimination-law-dog lie). Federal Court Complaint [link from CourthouseNews.com and Overlawyered.com]

Good to see that life goes on (during war in Gaza) for Prof. David Eilam and colleagues at Tel Aviv University, who want you to know that a New York City (Manhattan) structured-grid layout of a city is better than a New Orleans-style unstructured layout and that the way they found that out was by observing how easily rats traveled in the respective layouts.

man sswings genitals - so you can make gang signs with your junk now? seems like too much work to me.

waiter at hooters - I say give him the job, and after a week of EVERY party that comes to the restaurant requesting another server and him making $0, he'll quit. That is how the free market works, right?

Rats It took more than ONE professor to figure out that travel in a straight line is quicker than getting lost in some maze created by a drunken French donkey?

I didn't learn much in Geometry but "The shortest distance between two points is a straight line" kind'a made good sense even way back then.

Good idea, Matt. Make him wear the whole costume too. That includes the heavy pantyhose.

Man Swings Genitals
I guess throwing feces comes next. Wait, did I just type that or think it? Oh well!

Expat - It looks as though the rats are smarter than those profs.

Taco que costarĂ¡ demasiado!

Neither do I, Rick.

It is supposed to say
"That taco cost too much."

I don't know if that is correct. I figured with all the people here so worry about 'engrish' that I would illicit some comments if my spanish was off.

Damn! You truly are wise, wise @$$. I like your thinking!

I didn't know prostitution was legal in the UK... or that is was so damn profitable. Seriously? 2.5M pounds?

I don't know if I'd fear a gang whose sign was a scrotum.

What if it was a flaming scrotum, kingmonkey?

Natalie Dylan's not even that hot... $3.7 MILLION?? For that amount, you could bang like 18,500 regular girls at the Bunny Ranch. I don't get it.

fell out the window

This is another one that needs some video to go with it.

Why wise @$$, are you trying to hawk your own homemade vids? No thanks, you can keep them. 😉
Posted by Madd Maxx on 01/14/09 at 12:57 PM
I guess that shows who is in wise @$$'s homemade gay porn vid. I hope for your sake, ?, that wise @$$ allows you to give as well as receive. It would be ashame if it was a one-sided relationship.

and we thought the visual from Emma the pole-smoker was disturbing..

lawsuit against Hooters:He would have to wear the uniform. company policy. If he has a hairy back, would he have to shave?

About that cherry...I think she's setting herself up for a tragic ending. England has a horrific tax code.
