He’s Denying This?

The Governor of a state in southern India has resigned over a sex tape played by local media. Now even if that is unusual there, doubtful but possible, it is not anything approaching weird in the rest of the world. Most especially in the United States. The weird part, is that the man is denying the veracity of the tape. Why is that weird? An 86 year old guy filmed having sex with THREE women, and he's denying it happened? Really? I would think the respect that accomplishment gained him would out weigh any embarrassment he might feel at being caught.

Watch Bird


A robber in the UK learned that watch dogs aren't the only animals to worry about when committing a B&E. Upon breaking into a pet shop the robber was attacked and driven away by a Sun Conure. Sun Conures are beautiful parrot type birds who, apparently, are quite territorial. Odds are quite good that the culprit will be caught as the bird collected DNA with it's beak, and the intruder left a trail of blood on his way out. OUCH!

One Comfortable F#%*ing Matress


An Italian man has invented what he calls a love mattress. A mattress that is purported to be more conducive to sexual activity. It has a block cushion that can be pulled out to provide a kneeling well of sorts. When the couple is ready to sleep the cushion can be dropped back in making an even sleeping surface and, hopefully, eliminating the age old problem of who sleeps in the wet spot.

Here's the link to the original story- http://www.aolnews.com/weird-news/article/italian-inventor-creates-love-mattress-with-a-hole-for-the-knees/19626641 My apologies for omitting it in the initial post.

Toys with Emotional Problems

You think you have problems? At least you weren't created with a specific mental illness in mind, as in being a depressed turtle or a obsessive compulsive Hippo.

My only complaint is that only 5 mental illnesses are represented. Surely we can do better than that, people.

Here's the link if you don't believe it.
