Singer Winehouse arrested over drugs

Posted in Funny & Weird on June 17, 2008 by keronii

British singer Amy Winehouse has been arrested on suspicion of drug offences, police sources say.

The Grammy-winning soul singer, who was released with a caution for assault less than two weeks ago, was being held after she handed herself in at a London police station.”At 1pm (2200 AEST) on Wednesday, a 24-year-old woman attended a London police station by arrangement,” police said in a statement. “She was arrested in connection with alleged possession of a controlled drug.”

Police declined to give more details.

Winehouse was held overnight in a cell last month but was released without charge after admitting assault by slapping a man with her hand. Winehouse, whose battle against drug addiction has often overshadowed her recording success, is said to be worth an estimated STG10 million ($A20.77 million) in the latest Sunday Times Rich List.

Winehouse did not attend the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles in February, but still managed five big wins, including record and song of the year for ‘Rehab’ and best pop vocal album for her breakthrough release, Back to Black.

Victory: Utah city council to lift bikini ban

Hey butterflies! Slip on some duds, comb out your fros, and dig out that teeny, weeny, yellow polka-dot bikini.

Less than one month after a city-wide bikini ban, Utah’s Kanab City Council is lifting the painfully conservative ruling to allow two-pieces and Speedos at the town’s soon-to-open public pool, the Salt Lake Tribune reported. Councilwoman Nina Laycook claimed the ban on bikinis and Speedos was unintentional; instead stating her “recommendation is going to be no thongs or string bikinis.

“We were so engrossed with safety and health issues we overlooked the wording [about swimming attire],” she said. “We are addressing that now by amending the policy.”

Eating own hair. Holy Shit!

Some crazy bitch who chows down on her own hair produced a 10-pound hairball (pictured at right; thanks a lot NBC). Jesusfuckingchrist!

The 18-year-old headcase went to doctors after five months of abdominal pain and the loss of 40 pounds. Sensing something was up, the good docs took a look inside—and discovered the particularly nasty hairball, which took up almost all of the woman’s stomach. Confronted, she admitted to making a habit of eating her own hair; a condition doctors refer to as trichophagia, but we can just call “being off your fucking rocker”.

Small incisions were no match for the mass, which had to be removed entirely through a good, old-fashioned surgery. Screwball was released from the hospital after five days, and urged to pay a visit to the shrink. Fast-forward one year: She’s regained about half of the weight she lost and claims to have stopped eating her hair.

A high school girl hanged herself at her home here after a message telling her to die was put up on her blog, school officials said Saturday.

Mihagino Girls’ High School in Kokurakita-ku, Kitakyushu, held an emergency meeting on Saturday to explain the incident to the parents of the students. Moreover, the school has offered to introduce clinical psychotherapists to traumatized students.

The school received a call from the parents of the 16-year-old, first-year girl Thursday morning, saying that she had hanged herself at her home in Kitakyushu, according to the officials. A suicide note she left for her family said that a message telling her to die had been posted on her personal blog.

A school official told the Mainichi that a message slandering the student was reportedly put up on her blog sometime between Monday and Tuesday.

Some of her friends reportedly told teachers that they had noticed something odd in her behavior over the past few days.

Let the Sun Shine in!

Put your girls to good use on the beach this summer with the new solar-powered bra by Triumph International, a Japanese women’s underwear company.

Solar Bra

The cumbersome gadget has enough exposed (get it?!) panels to power an iPod or cell phone (hell, why not go ahead and power a vibrator?). And for some strange reason, there are also inexplicable water pouches on these puppies—so you don’t have to use wasteful water containers. Doubles as a boob-enhancer!

Other Triumph specials: a baseball bra (with fielder’s-mitt-shaped cups) and heated bra (with microwavable gel pads to warm the cups). Does it get any better than this?

Thong Threat

Posted in Funny & Weird on June 4, 2008 by keronii

Spring cleaning always raises an awkward question: What to do with the raggedy underwear you cull from your top drawer? It’s kinda gross to give it to the Salvation Army, right, but it’s wasteful to throw them in the trash. Now there’s a creative humanitarian answer—and one that’s potentially powerful enough to inspire you to get cleaning. Panties for Peace encourages women to send their panties to Burmese officials.

The point isn’t to outfit anybody in donated underwear, though the country did just suffer a devastating cyclone: This movement is symbolic. Women’s underwear simply creeps the hell out of the men who comprise the military regime that’s been brutally ruling the country—not least through rape and systemic violence against women—for the past 20 years. “The Panties for Peace campaign plays on the regime leaders’ superstitious fear that contact with a woman’s underpants will rob them of their power. Women around the world are asked to post their panties to local Burmese embassies in a bid to strip the regime of its power and bring an end to its gross violations of human rights, especially those committed against Burma’s women.” The movement was started by a Burmese women’s action group and has grown in scope via solidarity campaigns from feminist groups in Canada and around the world.

DIY Cock Ring Goes Awful

Posted in Funny & Weird on June 4, 2008 by keronii

The Daily Telegraph reports that on Sunday an Australian man was taken to the hospital at 3 a.m. with 16 washers lodged on the shaft of his penis. Washers—normally used to fasten nuts—no pun intended—are usually “used under the head” according to Bolt Depot. (That pun definitely intended).

The man went into surgery at 4:30 a.m. where the surgeons attempted to remove the washers using a ring remover, normally used on fingers. Because of the thickness of the washers, the apparatus did not work. The fire brigade was then called in for the use of their equipment—on his equipment. After another 90 minutes, the washers were off and the man was physically fine. No word yet on how his pride is recovering.

News reports didn’t speculate on what, exactly, the washers were doing on the penis, but we can spot—and advise against—a DIY cock ring 9000 miles away.
