Good news, deadsters. You can carry on shagging after you’ve stopped breathing. Mark Sturkenboom’s “21 grams memory box” has a box for the widow or widower in need of company. It contains: a diffuser for the deceased’s perfume, an iPod dock to play “your” songs, a necklace on which to keep the key and an urn shaped like a dildo ready on contain 21 grammes of the dead lover’s red-hot ashes.

mug shot


Mug Shot of the Day comes to us via Police in Washougal, Washington, who arrested 36-year-old Marsha Santoro.

The story is:

At around 6pm on Friday, police said Santoro was driving when a child riding a Big Wheel rolled out of a driveway and Santoro hit the child. Witnesses told officers Santoro attempted to drive away, but when that didn’t work she got out of her Ford F-150 pickup and walked off, according to police. Police said a K-9 unit tracked Santoro to the hole that she was hiding in.

She faces a raft of eyebrow-raising charges…

Cocaine trafficker escapes by giving his GPS monitor to a cat

Uses for cats No. 2: mobile getaway device.

Mexican national Diego Martinez-Espinoza was under house arrest in Chesterfield, Virginia, for drugs trafficking. His trial is scheduled for May 6. But he won’t be there. WTKR says that the suspect foxed police by removing his GPS ankle bracelet and attaching it to a cat.

When police went to to see why Espinoza hadn’t responded to their calls to check into the station – the device beeps and beeps until the perp complies – he wasn’t there. But the cat was. And what it made of a cheeping noise following it rond the room is anyone’s guess.

More uses for cats when we find them…

Diner finds used sink plug in her Hog’s Breath salad

salda plug


Things Found In Food spots a sink plug in a salad.

The diner at Brisbane, Australia’s Hog’s Breath Cafe got an old plug in her salad. You have to wonder what vegetable the chef thinks the plug resembles?

The eatery’s ggeneral manager Ross Worth offers up an explanation:

“Food hygiene is a top priority for the company. The plug came from a sanitised ice food bath that was designated for fresh produce such as lettuce and tomatoes to be washed in. On that day the staff members have pulled fresh produce out of the bath and accidently pulled the plug with it. The business owner has re-trained his staff on the right processes to make sure this doesn’t ever happen again. As for the customer’s complint that kitchen staff thought it was funny I can’t comment if they were laughing – I would guess not.It’s not a laughing matter, and I’d like to think they wouldn’t laugh.”

Conclusion: don’t order the mushrooms.

Modern sex: long lost brother and sister meet on Tinder

Tinder sex brother and sister

After 16 years apart a brother and sister have been reunited on Tinder, the dating app. He looked at her. She looked at him. Thoughts turned to sex. Then they discovered they were siblings. But this isn’t Motherwell, so nothing sexual happened.

Via Mic reports:

De Vries, now 24, eventually moved back to the Netherlands for school, and in March, like any other young adult, joined Tinder and started swiping.

“The first time I swiped her profile I had absolutely no idea… To be honest, it hasn’t been on my mind in the past few years after Maarten, my brother, and I finished a failed search for Josephine a few years ago.”

And yet he happened to swipe right, assuming Egberts was just a nice stranger. So de Vries started talking to her like anyone else. “In our first conversation I was actually flirting with her so the conversation was very superficial,” he said.

And then…

“In our next conversation, I started to get some clues and figured she might actually be my sister. This kind of shocked me, so I decided not to contact her for a few days.”

But after the shock and physical attraction had been given time to cool off, they have met.

Meanwhile…in Motherwell

Tamworth boy gets stuck inside Minion machine

minion stuck
When Henry Howes failed to grab the Minion’s head with a metal claw, he was disapointed. Henry reached inside the hatch in a bid to grab a Despicable Me toy. He then slid all the way inside.

Helpfully, somsone took a photo of Henry.




The chance to Grab A Live Child for £1 at the Snowdome in Tamworth, Staffs, would undoubtedly appeal to 1970s BBC Radio DJs, but in today’s age it’s frowned upon.
Henry was eventually spared a life as an ornament when staff freed him.

Watch what happens when you attack a pregnant wolf spider with a broom

Anorak has one way of dealing with spider in the home: I leave the room and never return until a woman (it has to be woman – like ISIS nutjobs, spiders are terrified of women). But Danny Ford of Hallett Cove, South Australia, reaches for the household implements. When he spotted a venomous wolf spider in his home he went for the broom.

He hit it. And then it happened…

“Her son received a phone call from his partner, who is a prostitute. The girlfriend says ‘I have just got £100 from a punter’ and that she is having a Chinese.”

Japan’s Megumi Igarashi arrested for making a boat in the shape of her vagina



Megumi Igarashi is in trouble for making a large scale “pussy boat” based on 3D scans of her own vulva. Igarashi, known in Japan’s art circles as “Rokudenashiko” (“good-for-nothing girl”) has been arrested for emailing data from her 3D genital-scan.

It turns out in Japan depictions of genitalia are banned by a 1951 Supreme Court decree that forbids anything that “stimulates desire and violates an ordinary person’s sense of sexual shame and morality.”

You know, like the game show for tossers, Manga comics, him and this brothel.

If Igarashi’s Junk doesn’t float your boat you can take home replicas of her vulva is jewelry form.




News just in: Igarashi is free. But she’ll back in the dry dock on Tuesday. She faces up to two years in prison or a fine of up to 2.5 million yen ($24,500). 

She says:

“The fact that I was arrested for this at all shows that Japan is still very backwards about women’s sexual expression, that it is not acknowledged at all except as something for men’s pleasure. There’s huge resistance to women using their body to express themselves. The fact that I was arrested for this is just strange…. I don’t believe my vagina is anything obscene. I was determined I would never yield to police power.”

Man expecting birthday BJ gets unexpected waxing from pranking girlfriend



In the Czech Republic Erik Meldik is one half of the pranking ViralBrothers. One laugh feartured Meldik telling his girlfriend, Dominika Petrinova, she had accidentally put her pet dog in a washing machine. Dominika was extremely upset. And when she’d calmed down she plotted her revenge.

On his birthday, Dominika walked a naked and blindfolded Erik from the shower. In the lounge, she sat his naked rear on a chair on which she’d stuck waxing strips. Erik, doubtless expecting a birthday BJ or some other sex-driven thrill, was stuck.

As she struggles. She titters.

Turkish mayor erects massive robot statue

A view of the 'Transformers-esque' statue near Turkeys new presidential palace in Ankara, erected by the city Mayor Melih Gokcek, seen on April 2, 2015. The people of the Turkish capital believed it an April Fools joke, but no, it was real: The controversial mayor of Ankara has erected in the center of the megacity a giant statue made of metal and polyester that looks suspiciously like a production robot American 'Transformers'. The statue is expected to promote a giant amusement park, the Anka Park, which is under construction despite a court order which has found it in part to be contrary to the town planning rules.


To Turkey, where Mayor Melih Gökçek of Ankara is being sued by the Turkish Union of Engineers and Architects’ Chambers for investing tax money on a wonderful 20-foot tall robot statue. The statue is not a 3D version of a self-portrait. It’s to advertise a new theme park.

Said Gökçek in reply to the many critics who have slammed his project: “Respect the robot.”
