Couple Married By Robot In Japan

Before the next logical step of humans "romancing" and eventually marrying robots, we'll have them perform other jobs in and around love and relationship to become accustomed to human emotions and the nature of romance. Those jobs will initially include wedding cake icer, flower girl and priest. Our friends at The Frisky have it on good authority (including a video) that a Japanese couple has been married by a robot. Evidently, through hook or crook (but most likely articulated robo-arm) the robot actually brought the two together in the first place.

Do Indonesian Authorities Hate The Male Member?

Policemen or prospective policemen should just forget about getting work in Papua if they've had (to use advertising parlance) that "special" part enlarged. Evidently, the military has fallen into lockstep with this anti-donkey dong directive. The official line is that an over-sized phallus will be a "hindrance during training," so says police mouthpiece Zainuri Lubis. On top of that, after the trailer to "Cowboys In Paradise" was aired, many young gigolos were arrested on the island of Bali, particularly the Kuta Beach region. Sounds likes some haterade was drank by the fuzz.

Boobquake: Can Naked Women Cause An Earthquake?

After an Iranian cleric declared that earthquakes can be, in some part, attributed to immodest female dress (AKA cleavage, mid-drift and rouge). While some people know that this is unlikely, as only immodest dancing can cause earthquakes, others feel that the Persian killjoy really overstepped his bounds. The solution, obviously, was to put him in his place by having women all wear whatever they damn well please as long as it's sexy.

America In Race For Most Pillow Girlfriends

Like most technology, they get the really great stuff in Japan and then it filters to us Yanks. We followed their auto design (until they started moving a little too fast for us, hi-ooo Toyota joke!). They got Dance Dance Revolution first. They all had smart phones first. They have ubiquitous WiFi and I still have to sit within four feet of my wireless router. The latest import from the land of falling birthrate is the girlfriend pillow for shut-ins.

Busy Wedding Days: A Baby & A Vendetta

Most women have it pretty easy on their wedding day. The months of planning, dieting, haggling, bargaining with God and breath-holding (sorta) move into the rearview mirror if everyone does their damned job and manages to stow their petty bullsh. Occasionally, a woman will pitch an extra level of difficulty into the miasma of wedding day mayhem. One woman starts her honeymoon by having a baby, and another kicks things off from a jailhouse.
