drug bust from her stuffed bust.

This has nothing to do with the post, I just thought it was hilarious.  And it's Friday.

Ahh, stuffing your bra.  It’s a rite of passage.  Most people use toilet paper (or something similar… not that I’d know) but a unnamed 37-year-old Georgia woman had a different plan.  She stuffed her bra with a pound of meth… worth about $13,000.

Okay, so maybe her intentions weren’t to make herself look bustier.  Perhaps her intentions were to hide the drugs after getting pulled over for a traffic violation.  I don’t know. (Lie. I do, in fact, know.)  Just speculating.

benedict’s hot new single drops soon!

VATICAN POPE

The Prada wearing Pope is now doing what so many young stars are doing today– he’s recording an album.  No word yet on whether there will be collaborations with T-Pain, Ne-Yo, Rhianna or Carlos Santana, or if it’s produced by Timbaland, but definitely be ready for some hymns and prayers to the Virgin Mary.  From the story on MSNBC:

The pontiff’s as-yet-untitled album also includes eight original pieces of contemporary classical music, Geffen/Universal said.

The pope is accompanied by the Choir of the Philharmonic Academy of Rome, recorded in St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican. The original compositions are performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, recorded at London’s Abbey Road studios.

So maybe I poked fun at this (all in good fun, I promise), but unlike the musical efforts of Paris Hilton, the proceeds from PB XVI’s album are going to a good cause.  They will be used to bring the joy of music to underprivileged children around the world.  I can get behind that.

Benny’s album drops on Nov. 30.

youtube clip of today: mattress dominoes.

I love the noises the people make as they get body slammed by a mattress.  There was one that reminded me of the infamous grape stomper’s “Owww oww oww”.  I laughed out loud.  All by myself.  Happy Friday!

oh girls, we keep getting prettier.

Good news, ladies!  From Britain’s Times Online…

For the female half of the population, it may bring a satisfied smile. Scientists have found that evolution is driving women to become ever more beautiful, while men remain as aesthetically unappealing as their caveman ancestors.

Absurdly pretty.

Absurdly pretty.

The reason, you ask?  Because pretty people have more babies than ugly ones.  And pretty people tend to have pretty babies.

And, according to this new study, the majority of those pretty babies are girls.  So those pretty baby girls turn into pretty women.  And that’s why we keep getting prettier. Duh.

In fact, University of Helsinki reasearcher Markus Jokela found that attractive women had up to 16 percent more babies.  Sixteen percent?!  What a random number.

In men, by contrast, good looks appear to count for little, with handsome men being no more successful than others in terms of numbers of children. This means there has been little pressure for men’s appearance to evolve.

Not pretty.

Not pretty.

And we all know they aren’t going to take the initiative.  I can just hear it now, “Honey, I want you to WANT to evolve!”

Read the whole story here.

And guys, even though you may continue to look (and act) like a bunch of cro-magnons, we still love you.

hair-bands magically turn into used condoms?

This one just speaks for itself.  Apparently, some hair thingie factories in China were reallllllllly into recycling.  They used low-quality, defective and even used condoms as the rubber basis for the hair bands they manufactured.

Now, I got this information in a chain-letter e-mail, so I was as skeptical as always.  But according to my favorite site, snopes.com, this particular story is true.  Keep those things out of your mouths, ladies…

the late friday afternoon grab bag.

tgif

The weekend is within our grasp, friends!  Here are some quick and things to look at before you go out for a raging Friday night and Mallory and I roadtrip to New Jersey for a conference with some of our bloggy correspondents (aka our best friends from college…minus a few.  You’ll be missed!)

  • Facebook is turning five years old, and we haven’t gotten tired of it yet.  Check out this piece (I may or may not know the journo behind it.) and DEFINITELY watch the video to see a 96-year-old man talk about the single most devastating factor to my college GPA.  Click HERE to read the story!
  • This is weird.  All 14-year-old Corby Cowart wanted to do was taste the rainbow.  His mother said yes, and he went to grab a bag of Skittles and he found a bag of cocaine in the Skittles box.  Yikes.  He said he knew what it was because he watches the TV show “COPS”.  Dammit, I HATE IT when stupid shows on the teevee actually teach kids stuff.  (Please refer to the story about Grayson Wynne)  According to Corby and his mama, the manager of the CVS laughed it off. Seriously?  The manager disputes the claim.  Of course.
  • Don’t copy that floppy!  A hilarious old video to prevent the young folk from copying computer games on the floppy disks.  Stunningly bad acting, floppy disks and a Fresh Prince style rapper?  Yup, welcome back to the 90s. 
  • Katie Holmes made her much anticipated “So You Think You Can Dance” appearance last night.  BORING.  Honestly, all she did was walk around and occasionally twirl.  And the lip syncing was out of control.  Not impressed.

That’s all for now, Folks!
