I Sucked on a Breast Milk Lollipop and Lived to Write About It

Back in June I covered an exciting new product hitting the novelty lollipop market: the Texas-based Lollyphile Breast Milk-Flavored Lollipop. My feelings on the matter were a blend of maximum-lolz, medium-nausea, and the smug comfort of living very, very far away from Texas. Here's what I wrote at the time: » 8/02/13 2:00pm 8/02/13 2:00pm

Horrifying Hazing Pics Will Make You Want to Lock Up Your Kids Forever

When we talk about "hazing" in the media, it's usually in pretty abstract generalities—the victims were humiliated, beaten, forced to drink to excess, and so on—but there's nothing quite like a photograph to drive home just what something means. These photos from an investigation into hazing at Inglemoor High School (go, … » 6/21/13 10:50am 6/21/13 10:50am

This Kansas Bill to Quarantine HIV-Positive People Is Beyond Fucking…

I've been trying for a couple of days to figure out how to even talk about this without throwing my computer out the window and then burrowing my body into some soft mud underneath my back porch and just hiding there forever.

Sham Dentists Arrested for Performing Unlicensed Root Canals

In the pantheon of worst human word combinations, I think that "fake dentist performs DIY root canal" is pretty much Zeus. In a horrific story out of Bryn Mawr, PA, a pair of unlicensed dental clinic employees (one of whom had no medical training whatsoever) have been moonlighting as bargain basement back-alley… » 12/18/12 7:00pm 12/18/12 7:00pm

Health Alert: Don't Drink Water or Eat Food or You'll Die

Oh, food. So delicious and necessary-for-not-dying, and yet soooooooooo constantly full of poisonous poop. Food recalls are probably my favorite type of horrifying national emergency, because they're so mysterious and close to home. Like, I eat food (much to the displeasure of the "Manosphere")!!! I totally eat it all… » 12/03/12 4:00pm 12/03/12 4:00pm

Should Parents Be Allowed to Murder Child Molesters? Is This a Trick…

Model Shows Off Macy's Dress; Heads Sold Separately

Today we're tipping our hat to Macy's for reminding us of that scary children's story about the girl whose head was held on with a green ribbon. Here we have a model whose head is attached to her body with nothing but a jaunty mismatched scarf!

Girlfriend-Killer Bobby Cutts' Tears Convince No One

Remember Bobby Cutts? The cop who killed his pregnant girlfriend, Jessie Davis? Well his trial is going on right now, and his boneheaded defense team is having Cutts plead not guilty — and then allowing Cutts to testify saying that he did, in fact, murder Davis.
