Venezuelan Politician Raffles Off Breast Implants

A politician in Venezuela had a brilliant plan to get out the vote: breasts. Naturally, sex sells and when you're talking about gorgeous Venezuelans (like famous Andres Galarraga, he's the Big Cat, ya'll!) make it a double. Gustavo Rojas is raffling a new “front porch” to raise funds for his campaign for parliament.

NYC To Tell Gays Where To Marry

City hall will now let gay couples know where they can go (and not straight to hell, Stephen Colbert) to make their nuptials happen. I know that City Hall has a certain cache and credibility that the webs just don't, but don't they have bigger fish to fry? Defying the state and allowing gay weddings would be a good use of calories; voting to print out a page from Wikipedia is not.

House Humping Couple Leaves Behind Sex Tape

A couple in Elma, Washington decided to get their rocks off by sneaking into a home, getting nakey, setting up a camera and getting down with the baby-making. In a scene that echoes the opening of "Old School," a neighbor came by for the mail and caught the copulating couple mid-coitus, at which point they cut out. Unfortunately, they left behind the camera and their sex tape.

Weird Beauty Trend: Bleaching Your... Everything?

There are several new-ish trends that women are engaging in to make themselves appear a little more "California." Some of these trends you know about. Some of these trends you'll never see until a gal is nude. The fix is in: some women will try anything to look a little younger.

Now There's A Dating Site For Uglies

There are a few things to keep in mind when online dating: 1) A picture says a thousand words, 2) if you're looking for something very specific, go for a niche site and 3) know thyself. A new dating site has the latter two facets covered in spades (with a little of the first thrown in for grins). A place called TheUglyBugBall has surfaced in the UK, a place known for its abject honesty. The dating site is's opposite, in that it's for people who realize they're unattractive.

Man Chooses Fishing Over Family, Seems OK With It

Where I come from, there's a saying: "Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day; teach a man to fish and he will abandon his family every weekend." A fellow named Lee Jackson must be from the same area. In a story that could have come from an episode of The Simpsons, Mr. Lee Jackson decided to spend a little extra time on the lake rather than with his family. His marriage, unsurprisingly, ended in divorce.

Is The Male Brazilian Wax Completely Pointless?

Over the last couple of decades, Americans have been grooming more and more. I'm guessing that skimpier outfits have led women to remove more hair. And, somewhere along they way, us dudes were convinced that we needed to have hair removed, so we agreed to some waxing. But manscaping has possibly spun out of control with the male Brazilian wax. Is this something that we really need?

Cougars Are Not An Actual Trend

The word cougar used to send a shiver down my spine, mostly because comedian Joe Rogan's dog was eaten by a cougar and I think he's a funny guy. But also because it's grown to be played out, tasteless and unfunny. Five or six years ago, when the word first surfaced it was hilarious because it conjured an image of a woman with acrylics, animal print sleeveless tops, leather pants and a perimenopausal hankering for something that doesn't need Viagra. But from that somewhat silly image an unflattering stereotype emerged and the whole thing lost its appeal. Now reports out of England suggest the cougar, like the mighty Chupacabra, might not exist and, come to think of it, Joe Rogan's dog may have been eaten by a mountain lion.
