This is really weird

Finlands new stamps are drawings of gay bondage.

http://gawker.com/finlands-new-stamps-are-drawings-of-gay-bondage-porn-1563476265

In Finland,  their new stamps feature drawings of gay bondage porn.

The drawings come courtesy of the Tom of Finland Foundation, the organization that controls the works of the famous Finnish gay porn artist born Touko Laaksonen. In a statement, Finland's post office praised Laaksonen's contribution to culture.

His emphatically masculine homoerotic drawings have attained iconic status in their genre and had an influence on, for instance, pop culture and fashion. In his works, Tom of Finland utilized the self-irony and humor typical of subcultures.

Brooklyn's Smallest Penis Contest Is Back For 2014, Still Nuts

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/15/2014-smallest-penis-contest-brooklyn_n_5153281.html




It's time, once again, to make the little things count.

The "Smallest Penis Contest," a nutty competition which debuted last year, will return to Brooklyn's Kings County Bar on June 14.

Per a media release, contestants will be judged in multiple categories, including "poise in both evening wear and bathing wear." In addition to a cash prize (which can optionally be donated to charity), a "wee crown and scepter" will be awarded to the less-endowed man best exhibiting "extraordinary heart, talent, and chutzpa."

In an interview with The Huffington Post, last year's winner, Nicholas Gilronan, described the competition as "laid back, fun, casual," comparing it to just another "fun time on a Saturday afternoon."

Last year, event promoters told HuffPost the pageant is all about empowering the little guys, describing it as a competition "for confident people with a sense of humor." For the 2014 contest, organizers have been chasing after Miley Cyrus as a judge, but as this isn't a twerking contest, we aren't holding our breath.

Those interested in competing or serving as a judge must be over 21, and have been asked to email SPB.Brooklyn@gmail.com for further details.

http://www.news8000.com/news/halfeaten-cinnamon-roll-leads-police-to-vehicle-thief/25618028

A Wisconsin correctional officer got to Madison around 4:25 a.m. for training, and parked his car, with the keys still in the ignition, just outside of a hotel in the 4800 block of East Washington Avenue, according to a release.

When the officer went into the hotel, he heard his car starting up and saw it leaving the lot, officials said. The officer didn’t see the person stealing his vehicle, but the hotel’s surveillance cameras led him to a partially-consumed cinnamon roll in the parking lot.

The officer could see the man on the surveillance footage eating the cinnamon roll before he got into the car and drove away, according to the release.

The officer went to a nearby restaurant and asked if there had been any recent cinnamon roll purchases, police said. The employee said there was, and the man had paid with cash, so they wouldn’t be able to track a credit card. The employee also told the officer the man who bought the cinnamon roll had been dropped off by a squad car from the Sun Prairie Police Department.

According to the release, the man was with a friend who was arrested for operating while under the influence, and got a ride from a Sun Prairie officer to the restaurant.

Madison police got the man’s name from Sun Prairie police, and went to an associated address on Portland Parkway, police said. The man initially denied having contact with Sun Prairie police, denied being at the restaurant, and denied being at the hotel where the car was stolen.

Officers told the 26-year-old they had visual evidence, and arrested him on tentative charges of operating a motor vehicle without consent, according to the release. Officers found the correctional officer’s stolen vehicle parked near the residence, and his uniform, cellphone and other personal items inside the residence.

The 26-year-old told police after he was arrested that he “just had a really bad night.”

I totally understand. We've all been there. Right?

On a side note; I'm sure the cinnamon roll was just hovering above the parking lot.

April 24, 2014 is National Pigs-In-A-Blanket Day

Quote
    Today is National Pigs-In-A-Blanket Day! This delicious finger food is popular with kids and cocktail party guests all across the world. In fact, there are many different cultures that have their own unique twist on this comfort food classic.

    In the United Kingdom, pigs-in-a-blanket are small sausages wrapped in bacon. People traditionally serve them as Christmas dinner appetizers. In Israel, kids enjoy Moshe Ba'Teiva (Moses in the Ark), which are miniature hot dogs rolled in a ketchup-covered puff pastry and baked in the oven. In the United States, pigs-in-a-blanket are hot dogs or Vienna sausages wrapped in biscuit or croissant dough and baked until golden brown. Yum!

    No matter where you are or how you decide to cook your pigs-in-a-blanket, make this tasty finger food for dinner tonight and serve it with a side of ketchup. Happy National Pigs-In-A-Blanket Day!

First date gone wrong.

http://seattletimes.com/html/nationworld/2023429733_apxfirstdatedogstolen.html?prmid=obnetwork

Quote
DOVER, N.J. —

A woman has been reunited with her Yorkshire Terrier and flat-screen TV that were snatched during her first date with a man she met online.

The woman called police early Saturday to say that her dog, Violet, had been tied by its leash to the TV, and both were left in the front yard of her Dover home, the Daily Record of Parsippany (http://dailyre.co/1eNpgE1) reported. Violet appeared to be in good health.

Authorities say the pair met on a dating site and went out for the first time Thursday night. After returning home, the woman said she became occupied in another room, leaving the man alone. When she returned, he was gone -- and so were her dog, valued at $4,000, and her TV, worth about $3,000.

The woman said she knew the man only as "Joel" and believed he lived in Elizabeth. Police said Saturday that they know the man's identity and that charges could be filed, though the investigation is ongoing.

Police said the man used the woman's cellphone, so they dusted it for fingerprints. They also checked other locations that the short-lived couple visited on their date.

A man with an all encompassing need for Speed has committed his entire life to a single pursuit - collecting every VHS copy of the movie Speed in the world.

Ryan Beitz, from Moscow, Idaho, wants to own every cassette copy of the classic 1994 thriller starring Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock and Dennis Hopper.

He already owns 550 tapes of the movie, and isn't stopping there. He's begun a Kickstarter campaign to deck out his van like the film's famous bus so he can travel the country to find more copies.

His obsession started when he bought six copies of the film at a pawn shop in 2006, and has raced out of control since then.

"One time I bought 30 copies from a store," Beitz told his local TV station KREM. "A lot of people just donate them to me, they send them from all over. I've got a few from Japan. I would buy them all off of Amazon, but the shipping costs $4 when the copy costs a penny. It's ridiculous."

Film crew finds Atari ET games in New Mexico archaeological dig

• Director Zack Penn says 'hundreds' of cartridges found
• Game's commercial failure lead to Atari's 1980s downfall
A documentary film production company has found buried in a New Mexico landfill hundreds of the Atari ET game cartridges that some call the worst video game ever made.

Film director Zak Penn showed one ET cartridge retrieved from the site and said hundreds more were found in the mounds of trash and dirt scooped by a backhoe.

About 200 residents and game enthusiasts gathered early on Saturday in southeastern New Mexico to watch backhoes and bulldozers dig through the concrete-covered landfill in search of up to a million discarded copies of “ET The Extraterrestrial” that the game's maker wanted to hide forever.

"I feel pretty relieved and psyched that they actually got to see something," said Penn, as members of the production team sifted through the mounds of trash, pulling out boxes, games and other Atari products.

Crack cocaine and heroin hidden inside "Kinder Egg plastic inserts" have been found by police on a Manchester street.

The capsules, which usually contain a plastic toy, were discovered by officers on patrol on St Mary's Hall Road in Crumpsall on Monday.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said it was "a surprise" to find the Class A drugs inside.

He added that it had been a "disappointment" that the capsules had not contained a toy.

Ottawa man arrested for exposing himself in a park

http://ottawa.ctvnews.ca/ottawa-man-arrested-for-exposing-himself-in-a-park-1.1798220

Quote

Ottawa Police arrested a 62-year-old man this morning, after complaints about an adult male exposing himself at Mooney’s Bay Park.

Donald Popadick has been charged with Indecent Act and Mischief.

Police say they had several complaints since mid-April about a man exposing himself.

Around 9 a.m. this morning, they were alerted to another call of someone on a pathway in the park.  Police were nearby and arrested Popadick, who will appear in court Wednesday.


The arresting officers must have busted a gut with this one...

Artist who tied rooster to penis in Paris guilty of sexual exhibitionism

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/france/10808967/Artist-who-tied-rooster-to-penis-in-Paris-guilty-of-sexual-exhibitionism.html

Quote
A South African performance artist who tied a live rooster to his penis during an impromptu open-air show near the Eiffel Tower was found guilty yesterday of “sexual exhibitionism”. However the Paris court did not impose a sentence.

Last September Steven Cohen danced on the French capital’s Trocadero Plaza dressed in a corset, high heels, long red gloves and an elaborate feathered headdress with a rooster attached to his penis by a ribbon.

Under the amused and perplexed gaze of tourists, including a group of nuns, the spectacle lasted only a few moments before police arrested Mr Cohen, dragging him across the plaza, rooster attached.

Mr Cohen’s lawyer said she was “relieved”.

“This is a rather measured decision,” said lawyer Agnès Tricoire. “In my opinion, this case should never have gone to court.”

In a March interview with Le Figaro newspaper, Mr Cohen said authorities had “no understanding of what art is, what performance is”.

“If I’m found guilty ... I will see it as a failure of French justice,” said Mr Cohen, who has lived in France for about 10 years.

Prosecutors had asked for a €1,000 (£822) fine.

Cohen is known for “interventions in the public realm”, according to his biography. Wearing an illuminated chandelier tutu, he once walked through a squatters’ camp in Johannesburg while it was being demolished.

He told the newspaper the Paris piece was a reaction to an increasingly homophobic, xenophobic and anti-Semitic world.

“In showing the most intimate part of me, I’m saying: I’m male, I’m Jewish, I’m queer, I’m white,” he said.

He said the rooster, named Franck, was not harmed during the performance. The animal was chosen “because it’s the emblem of France”.

 A 19-year-old man who held his breath while driving through a tunnel fainted and caused a three-vehicle crash

http://www.katu.com/news/local/Police-Driver-holding-breath-through-tunnel-faints-causes-3-vehicle-crash-260671691.html

His car crossed the center line and crashed head-on into an SUV, according to police.
Both vehicles crashed into the tunnel walls and a pickup truck crashed into the Camry.
Four people were injured and were taken by ambulance to a hospital. Police said none of the injuries was life-threatening.

some people hold their breaths in tunnels as part of a game or superstition.
The tunnel, called the Dennis L. Edwards Tunnel, goes through the Northern Oregon Coast Range mountains. It's 772 feet long, meaning that a car traveling at the posted speed limit of 55 mph would get through it in about 10 seconds.

Who can't hold their breath for ten seconds?
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

Cheap SOB shuts down residential strip club

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/05/28/sonya-fletcher-home-strip-club_n_5404797.html

A woman allegedly ran an illegal strip club out of her Virginia home,
a tipster... complained to police that there were strippers inside, and that drinks were a whopping $2 apiece.
When police raided the home, they found 11 bottles of liquor, 16 cans of Bud Light, three packs of plastic cups and two "marijuana roaches." 
Sonya Fletcher, 36 and 43-year-old Jeffrey Pope, were arrested on May 3.
Fletcher used the rented home to throw parties in which she and several other women stripped and served food and alcohol

Anyone wonder why California is bat-shit crazy?

CALIFORNIA: Alcoholics Anonymous / Bros Before Hos / Dandruff Cure / Food Poisoning / Google Glass / Kim Kardashian / Meat is Murder / Paris Hilton / Pokemon / Rogaine / What does Siri look like?





It pales in comparison with a number of other states::

FLORIDA:  Alligator Wrestling / Botox / Eyebrow Piercing / Hulk Hogan / Juviderm / Lice / Mazda Miata / MDMA / Obamacare / Stand Your Ground / Swingers / Viagra / What is sarcasm?
WEST VIRGINIA:  Anarchy / Belly Button Piercing / Cat Videos / Conspiracy Theories / Ferrets / Ghosts / How to make moonshine? / Infected Piercing / Meat Loaf Recipe / Methadone / Nancy Grace / Scabies / Second Amendment / Steroids / Vampires / Who let the dogs out?

Heck, although I hate to admit it, even TEXAS has us beat in the weird category:  Are dinosaurs real? / Are zombies real? / The Bill of Rights / Boogers / Calf Implants / Can dogs talk? / Chupacrabra / Curves International (company) / Do I have herpes? / Does beer make you fat? / Government Mind Control / How to cook meth? / How to sell your soul to the Devil? / Justin Bieber (singer) / Krunk / Meth Recipes / Porn / Purple Drank / Rodeo / Snake Bites / Tacos

No way.  Those Nazi HOA committees wouldn't let that happen more than once.  They might not know about the stripping and alcohol, but there's no way they'd let cars park in the empty lot!!!

Man attempting to blow nose and smoke cigarette at same time winds up burning house down

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/oddnews/man-attempting-to-blow-nose-and-smoke-cigarette-at-same-time-winds-up-burning-house-down-181654899.html

Quote
A man and woman living together in the community of Silver Valley in North Carolina will have to look for a new home after their house was completely lost to a fire early Monday morning. As WGHP FOX8 reports, it appears the incident was avoidable – the man, whose name has not been given, started the fire after he tried blowing his nose while smoking at the same time.

WGHP spoke with officials who say the incident happened at 3 AM. The tissue the man was blowing his nose into caught fire and then his attempts to stomp out the fire before it spread failed. Neither the man nor the woman he lives with were harmed, and the fire was out by 5 AM.

Zoo vet shoots zoo employee in gorilla suit with tranquilizer

https://www.thedodo.com/zoo-vet-mistakes-employee-in-g-578204140.html

The zoo was doing a drill for a gorilla escape
The vet had just been hired a couple months ago and didn't know about the drill
The tranquilizer was dosed for a 400 lb gorilla (duh), the guy in the suit had a reaction (dbl-duh) and had to be taken to a hospital.
