Sex Store Forced to Change Halloween Sign After Parents Complain

Sex Store Forced to change their sign after locals get their panties in a twist - Imgur

I originally saw this photo on Reddit. (Yes, I still follow /r/funny. Whatever.) Because you can never be too sure whether things are real or not, I went looking for an article.

Found this one via ABC Wate.com:

Some Sevier County parents are asking for an adult store to take down a risque sign.

A viewer sent WATE 6 On Your Side a photo of the sign at Sexy Stuf, which reads, “Trick or Treat. Bind her feet. Give her something hard to eat.”

The city of Sevierville has received nearly a dozen complaints about the sign. The store is known to push the envelope with the messages on its sign, but parents are saying this one went too far, especially since it’s near a school.

“I’m disgusted. I’m just disgusted,” said Mea Cole, a Sevier County parent.

Parents like Cole, who has a 7-year-old daughter, aren’t too fond of Sexy Stuf’s version of a well known Halloween rhyme.

Driving Ms. Parks

1st world def

I took some days off, for the soul… to “think”.

Each time my kid came home from school to find me on the couch staring into space, he gave me crap, “Dad! You didn’t work, again?!”

I told him, “Son, I’ve been thinking. I’ve been thinking a lot. And you know what? Nothing is wrong right now. Absolutely NOTHING.”

So, it’s Friday morning. And I am now going into work, to drive a cab… in complete peace, come what may. (OM, baby.)


Heading out of the lot of ‘ol Citizen’s Cab in 137 – my trusty Prius, the headlights catch that feral, orange tabby lot cat frozen, er… like a deer. It would seem she is now spoiled after gorging on all the late night BBQ pitched from the recurring congregations of chatty drivers, and the likes of me occasionally tossing her half my lunch. Well not today, Sheba!… Read the rest

Southpaw kid is Totally Metal according to teacher

In this day and age of advanced science and technology, it is always shocking to hear an alleged educator spewing idiotic medieval nonsense.

But when has that ever stopped anyone? You guessed it, never.

Since I’m clearly a cock-eyed optimist I say: when life hands you lemons make some badass totally metal lemonade.

'nuff said. \m/(x1x)\m/

’nuff said. \m/(x1x)\m/

According to Anything Left Handed this kid is now The Most Metal Kid in School:

We had an email recently from Club Member Mary that rather shocked us.  She said…

“I am very disturbed by a news report of a 4 year old being forced to write with his right hand.  This thought process is archaic.

Here is a link about a 4 year old being forced to write with his right hand.

Be outraged for this child.  I guess some Oklahoma educators are still using 1815 methods regarding left-handed people.  Hopefully, this will not cause him to have academic problems.

Cosmetic Surgery and Botox for Pets a Growing Trend in South Korea


Photo: Chosun Daily

Cosmetic surgery for pets is growing in South Korea with procedures for tail shortening, ear trimming, stretch mark removal, wrinkle removal, double eyelid removal, and botox injections on the rise.

Sumitra via Oddity Central:

Move over, humans, it seems animals need makeovers too. It’s all the rage in South Korea right now as pet owners are actually paying for cosmetic surgery for their furry companions!

Some of the popular procedures include tail shortening and ear trimming for dogs, to make them ‘cute’ with pointy ears. Fat reduction is another popular surgery, along with stretch marks removal, wrinkle smoothing, double eyelid removal and even botox injections. These procedures start from $60 and ostensibly run into the thousands.

It’s not entirely surprising, given that South Korea is the plastic surgery capital of the world. This is the place wheretourists become unrecognisable to the extent that they need special doctor certificates to return to their native lands after having work done on their faces.

Study: 11% of Americans Think HTML Is an STD

This blows my mind. Back in 2014, a study from VoucherCloud which was published in the LA Times found that about 11% of people thought HTML was an STD. They also found that 23% of people thought MP3 was a Star Wars reboot.

I really hope the numbers have started to decrease.

Jessica Roy via TIME:

Had a particularly raucous night that ended with you doing the walk of shame the next morning? Uh oh, hope you don’t get HTML. Just kidding! HTML is a programming language that’s used to make websites, but according to a new study from VoucherCloudand published by the L.A. Times, 1 in every 9 Americans–or exactly 11%–think HTML is actually a sexually transmitted disease. VoucherCloud surveyed 2,392 people ages 18 or older and, according to theL.A. Times, “were given both tech and non-tech terms and were asked to choose from three possible definitions.” The results?

The prisoner, who has not been named, was found by prison wardens with serious injuries and taken to hospital.

Paramedics from the South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust were called to the jail at around 10am last Friday, after reports a man in his 40s had suffered serious injuries.

A spokesman for the trust said it had received a report from the prison that the man had serious bleeding, and that he might be unconscious.

After they arrived at the scene, paramedics worked to stem the bleeding before taking the man to Southmead Hospital, where he received treatment.

A spokesman for the Prison Service said the injury was self-inflicted and that no other prisoners were involved…

Missing 24-year-old found alive and well 30 years after man confessed to her murder

petra 1

Well this is bizarre.

Louise Kelly via Independent:

A 24-year-old woman who went missing from her home in 1984, sparking a 31-year-long murder mystery, has been found alive and well.

Computer science student Petra Pazsitka vanished without a trace from her home in Germany three decades ago and was officially declared dead in 1989.

Her disappearance led to an extensive investigation, with nationwide appeals, searches and video reconstructions of her last known actions.

It is understood she left her student flat in Braunschweig and went to the shop and the dentist.

Friends claimed she then boarded a bus with the intention of going to visit her parents – but never arrived at their home.

A man who had previously been convicted for the rape and murder of a 14-year-old girl in the area confessed to Petra’s murder.

However, he later retracted his confession and Petra’s body was never found.

Sometimes, a ride just speaks for itself. Meet Chocolate Nam…

Choc Nam

It’s mid-day and I’m cruisin’ Haight-Ashbury. The sun is high and it is yet another perfect, beautiful San Francisco day. (Yawn.) The street is bustling with thrift store shoppers, retail workers and mid-western tourists congregating for snaps of themselves flashing peace signs below the famous intersecting street signage that marks this infamous corner. Post-selfie, it’s on to gawk at all the 60’s memorabilia glowing in black lights, as bongs and tie-dye emanate psychedelic from a multitude of head shops. And with leashed cats on their shoulders and unleashed pit-bulls at their sides, dirty-colorful neo-hippie runaways hawk pot vivacious to all that pass.

I drive past… and am immediately struck by the vision of an older black man at the peak of fashion, as he hobbles into the street to flag me with his black and silver-gilt cane on high.… Read the rest
