The shop will be trading from October 26 to 28, 2012. Anyone attempting entry outside those times, when the store is ‘asleep’ or shut, will be repelled by female magic…
Mr. Shah named the shop after his business partner’s grandfather, who earned the nicknamed Hitler, on account of his shared love of tickling, chewing gum and, rumour has it, genocide, torture, rape and raspberry Snow Cones.

Bill Oakley spots the advert:
@thatbilloakley: “This is an ad for the industry-standard screenwriting software depicting their idea of someone writing a screenplay
On Saturday, hundreds of curious visitors queued up outside the Iglesia del Santuario de Misericordia church, where the image is painted on a column.
“The previous painting was also very pretty, but I really like this one,” a woman who had travelled to the town said on public television.
LEGAL news: Christopher Bridgeman and Martin Borger are suing Continental Airlines. The couple claim they were humiliated when the dildo they’d packed into their luggage was removed by persons unknown, covered in a greasy substance and taped to the outside of their bag.

THE Bic Cristal Biro for her – “Easy Glide — feel the smoothness” – is the pen that keeps on giving. On Amazon, reviews have been enlightening:
THE Place is an eatery in New York’s West Village. It has produced one of the worst adverts ever. “We were looking for special…and we found magical”. In a cave:
The parents of nine-year-old twins Mollie and Millie, and eight-year-old Maisie Finn have reported the photo to police. They told Sainsbury’s, which offered them £150 in compensation.
THIS advert features 19-year-old Ukraine-born transgender model Stav Strashkosel and the tagline: ”Not in trend, not casual, not for everyone.”
”Omg Its finally out, my ass and face on toyota’s new auris commercial!!!!”
What no Yaris?
THE world’s bet billboards: In Germany, Martor Solingen’s razor blades are so sharp, pigeons do not stand a chance:
THE Ron Swanson moment:
THE Sleeping Beauty installation at the National Art Museum of Ukraine features sleeping women. Men are invited to kiss them once on the lips. If the woman opens her eyes, man and woman are contractually obliged to marry.
This is, of course, how Prince Edward finally got a mate.
Ukrainian-Canadian artist Taras Polataiko explains:
“Everybody, any viewer, will have to sign the contract, which says if – this is very important, because nobody has to – ‘if I kiss the beauty and she opens her eyes while being kissed, I marry her’….It’s a really serious thing, it’s marriage.”
WATER Wigs are the work of photographer Tim Tadder. Tadder and his team aimed “to capture the explosion of water at various intervals” by tossing water balloons at the heads of bald men. Drip-dry Water Wigs are here to help:
We used a laser and sound trigger to capture the right moments for each subject to create just the head of hair that fit best with the face. We chose to work with triads of colors to create images that are arresting and amusing at the same time. We feel the color helps transform the water into some more and adds greater visual interest.

IT’S 1922 and the Moby Revolving Hammock is all the go:
WHEN the Centro de Estudios Borjanos in Borja, Spain, received a donation from the granddaughter of 19th-century painter Elías García Martínez something happened. Martínez was known for having painted the Ecce Homo, a fresco on the walls of the church of Santuario de Misericordia. It was a fine work. Then a local woman – perhaps buoyed by the donation – took it upon herself to renovate the fresco. These three pictures together show what happened to the painting:

FACE of the day: Some of Rocque’s pot-stained prints are being sold for $2,500 each. A show featuring the work opened last week at a small alternative gallery in the stylish Ipanema neighbourhood. It takes him a week to complete a single print blowing about five joints’ worth of smoke onto a paper daily. Bill Clinton missed his calling…

NO-ONE has won more Olympic golds than Michael Phelps. He’s probably won more golds than most Olympic countries have won in their history. However, things are looking a little uncertain this week. See, Phelps’ 19 gold medals may diminish in number after he got chosen to front a new advertising campaign for Louis Vuitton.
The Olympic committee have a rather large beef with advertising, don’t they?
SO. How did the campaign to find a new name for Dub the Dew go? Dub the Dew is an green-apple infused soft drink. It’s “Classic Mtn Dew with green apple attitude”. Well, the promotion is now at an end. The results are in. The winning name chosen by your the consumer is “Hitler did nothing wrong,”, which beat entrants like Diabeetus, Fapple and Gushing Granny.
Says Mountain Dew
“Dub the Dew,” a local market promotional campaign that was created by one of our customers – not Mountain Dew – was compromised. We are working diligently with our customer’s team to remove all offensive content that was posted and putting measures in place to ensure this doesn’t happen again. Mountain Dew has a legacy of engaging its most loyal fans to tap innovative ideas for the brand through really successful programs like “DEWMocracy” and “Your Malt Dew” and so we sincerely apologize to all of our fans who may have been offended by this customer’s program.
SOCKS. Sandals. Socks and sandal? Socks or sandals? Sandal Socks?!Phew!!
Spotter: Dressed Like Machines
WHAT should a mini-cab / taxi driver wear to put his customers at ease, to assure them that they are in the hands of a professional? To Perth, Australia, then, where a driver is not wearing trousers. Jessie Gravett, 21, hired the cab. She took a photo of the non-trousers:
“There is possibly a legitimate reason for the lack of pants but I would think he would stop driving and be a professional about it. Not pick girls up. I didn’t take much notice of the driver when I got in, just shut the door and confirmed my drop off address in Spearwood, 35 minutes away. I immediately messaged my friends so they could keep tabs on me. I didn’t want to draw attention to his lack of pants because I was unsure how he would react. I was very uncomfortable.
“I put my keys between my fingers and unzipped my sharp studded boots because I wasn’t sure what his intentions were and I wanted to be prepared in case I needed to defend myself.”
Such is the power of trousers.
“When I called they [Swan Taxis] said he had someone else in the car already for another job so at least they had track of him.”
