9-year-old boy ‘terrorist’ suspended for calling a classmate ‘black’, showing a pregnancy book and brandishing a ‘magic’ ring



To Kermit, Texas, where 9-year-old  Aiden Stewart has been suspended from school for “making a terroristic threat”. Aiden told a classmate he could make him disappear with a magic ring, just like the magic rings in The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, a movie he had seen a few days earlier.

“It sounded unbelievable,” the boy’s father, Jason Steward, says. He insists his son “didn’t mean anything by it. Kids act out movies that they see. When I watched Superman as a kid, I went outside and tried to fly. I assure you my son lacks the magical powers necessary to threaten his friend’s existence. If he did, I’m sure he’d bring him right back.”

Trucker pulling his own tooth caused dramatic accident

truck tooth

Next time just don’t wear a seatbelt:

The accident, which happened just before 10:30pm, was caused when a self-employed tractor trailer driver took his hands off the wheel to pull a loose tooth from his mouth. “The driver stated he lost control when he was pulling a tooth with his hands,” the report reads.

“He had the tooth in his shirt pocket as proof.” The truck left the roadway, travelled down the slope leading into a ditch then jack-knifed into nearby trees, according to the report.

It sounds like a great way to loose your teeth…

The man told the students that he had been stuck in a handstand position half in, half out of the building for five hours.
Dan dialled 999:
“The police arrived and started pissing themselves laughing and taking  elfieswith him before they did anything.”
Thoughtfully, Dan took a video:

Woman jailed for spinning children too quickly on playground merry-go-round



Other Parents presents Kylie Radatti, 34, now doing time for crimes at Justins Park in Burleigh, Queensland, Australia.

Radatti tells Southport Magistrates Court:

“I was just having a good time and I told one little kid, ‘I’m going to go fast, do you want to jump on?’ and he said he’d have a go. He had a bit of a scream then he got off and the other kids jumped on and off we went. There was one family that decided they wanted to ring the police and they hunted me down and handcuffed me in front of everyone. They took me away from the park and wouldn’t even let me get my bag so I can’t even get into my house. I was having a good night and everyone enjoyed me and there’s always got to be one who’s got to make a big deal of it.”

Man smelled of pony sex: Is Nothing Safe?

IN Sheffield, man is accused of smelling of pony sex.


Screen shot 2015-01-27 at 06.10.33


The Star reports:

Alan Barnfield, aged 44, was found ‘sweating profusely and smelled strongly of horses’ when he was spoken to by police officers at Oak Tree Stables on Rakes Lane, Loversall, Doncaster…

When police searched Barfield’s rucksack looking for items he might use to commit theft, they found several cans of Lynx deodorant, a length of white electrical cable, a handheld water sprayer, a cloth, a metal dog chain and two bottles of Lucozade.

Lynx is not made from real lynx. Probably.

Barfield, of Hexthorpe Lane, Hexthorpe, Doncaster, said he was ‘just out walking’ and denies sexual intercourse with an animal.

The case continues…




Is Nothing Safe?

Necropants: The hairy trousers made from the skin of a dead man

Behold! The last word in walking trousers. These trousers used to walk! Cop a load these hairy necropants housed in Strandagaldur, the Museum of Icelandic Sorcery & Witchcraft.


dead man walking


These vines are not for sale. But how can you get your own man strides?

Well, since you ask, the museum will tell:

If you want to make your own necropants (literally; nábrók) you have to get permission from a living man to use his skin after his dead.

Not dead skin from the living. That’s like sewing soap.

After he has been buried you must dig up his body and flay the skin of the corpse in one piece from the waist down. As soon as you step into the pants they will stick to your own skin. A coin must be stolen from a poor widow and placed in the scrotum along with the magical sign, nábrókarstafur, written on a piece of paper. Consequently the coin will draw money into the scrotum so it will never be empty, as long as the original coin is not removed. To ensure salvation the owner has to convince someone else to overtake the pants and step into each leg as soon as he gets out of it. The necropants will thus keep the money-gathering nature for generations.




Necropants. Ask for them by brand name. And then sit tight until the men in white coats arrive and the pills kick in…

Other parents: Five-year-old boy given bill for missing school friend’s birthday party

other parentsEver invite someone to a party and have them not show up after saying they would? Ever sue them for the no-show?

Derek Nash and his partner, who live in Torpoint, Cornwall, have been charged £15.95 for failing to take their son Alex to a party at the Ski Slope and Snowboard Centre. They said he would attend. And Alex wanted to go. But they never showed up.

Mr Nash tells the Plymouth Herald that Alex had already agreed to see his grandparents: Party with mates at ski centre? Or grandparents? Tough choice.

 “She saw me and asked if Alex was coming to the party. At this time I agreed and said that Alex was looking forward to it. By this time we did not have a contact number, email or an address to let [the boy’s mother] know. So on the day of the party we asked Alex what he wanted to do; he chose to be with his grandparents.

Back at school:

“My partner looked out for [the friend’s mother] to apologise for Alex not showing up to the party, but didn’t see her. But on January 15 she looked in Alex’s school bag and found a brown envelope. It was an invoice for £15.95 for a child’s party no show fee. I asked Alex’s class teacher if [the child’s mother] had given anything to her. She said, ‘Yes, a brown envelope’. I then visited Alex’s school headteacher, who couldn’t apologise enough that one of the teachers had passed this on. She said she would remind all staff that this was a breach of protocol. I left the school and went to see [the birthday boy’s mother] as her address was on the invoice. When she answered the door I told her I had found the invoice in my son’s school bag and that I wasn’t happy about it. I told her I would not be paying her the money. I told her she should have spoken to me first and not put the invoice in my son’s school bag.”

The couple says the mother of Alex’s friend has threatened the couple with taking the case to the small claims court.

And then this:

Mr Nash’s partner, who doesn’t want to be named, has been in contact with the mum via Facebook hoping to resolve the situation. The mother of Alex’s friend was unavailable for comment.

So. They did have a way of contacting the party boy’s mother? And they didn’t send a note? And then they told the Press when confronted? And they refuse to pay?

Hey, Alex. Stay close to grandpa and grandma. You’re going to be seeing a lot of them at party time. And , parents, don’t bother with invites, just send a subpoena.

The Satanic Children’s Big Book of Activities Coloring Book: free to Florida’s young Christians

Have you read the “The Satanic Children’s Big Book of Activities”?

The Satanic Temple wants to give these pamphets to children in Orange County, Florida.

Why? Well the Orange County School Board said that Christians could legally hand out Bibles in school. So. Non-Christian groups wants to hand out their own literature. The Central Florida Freethought Community (CFFC) planned their own giveaways.

But the School Board became a censor:

Orange County Public Schools insisted on vetting the freethought literature from FFRF and other secular groups. It censored many of the materials, including “Letter to a Christian Nation,” Sam Harris’ book; “The Truth,” an essay by Robert G. Ingersoll; “Jesus Is Dead” a book by Robert Price, professor of philosophy and religion; “What on Earth Is an Atheist,” a book by Madalyn Murray O’Hair; “Why I am Not a Muslim,” a book by Ibn Warraq, and several FFRF “nontracts,” including “Dear Believer,” “Why Jesus?” “What Does the Bible Say About Abortion?” and “An X-Rated Book.”

Watch a thick-thighed woman steal a TV by hiding in up her dress

tv theft


To Guapiles in central Costa Rica, where a woman is stealing a TV set by smuggling up the dress she is wearing.

Shop assistant Jacint Ramirez Callas, 25, is astounded and a little impressed:

“She did it so quickly no one had time to notice or react. And having watched the video it is amazing that the TV doesn’t fall out from between her legs. She must be a pro or have very thick thighs.”

Jesus Peacock spotted in the Northern Lights

jesus aurora


Is it a bird? Is it a firework? Is it a Russian missile? No, dude, it’s Jesus Christ. And he’s using the Northern Lights over Iceland to make his Second Coming.

Local headmaster Jón Hilmarsson tells his local paper:

‘This was the most beautiful and vivid northern light display I have ever seen. We usually see green auroras but that night I saw bright green, red and purple colour, which is very unusual. Many people see the shape of Christ but also an angel formation.’

Sex tip of the day: how to fold your penis into a human love chair

Tomorrow: great car sex

Tomorrow: great car sex


Sex tip of the day is provided by Nigeria’s Pulse, in partnership with Origami Monthly:

Some men believe that because of their penis size, they cannot enjoy sex or give pleasure to their women. But they are wrong as there are positions for every size.

The Average Penis:

For an average snake, it is always advisable to experiment with different positions that will provide deeper penetration but the best position for you is the crouching position.

This is the best position you can adopt for maximum enjoyment. Here, your woman wraps her arms around your shoulders and her legs around your midsection before you crouch down in a squat position so that your body makes a human chair for you.

Then with your left hand pick up a cup of tea and with your right take hold of the TV remote…

Questions on Islam: ‘Is it permissible to make snowmen?’



Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid is answering you questions on Islam. Under ‘New Fatwas’, the Sheikh talks about snow.

226557: Ruling on making snowmen

Is it permissible to make snowmen?

The answer:

Praise be to Allah.

If the snowman does not have clear facial features such as eyes, a nose and a mouth, and it is merely a three-dimensional figure with no features, like the scarecrows that farmers set up to scare away birds, and signs that are put on roads as a warning of roadworks or construction, then there is nothing wrong with any of that.

Woman regrets getting squirting penis tattoo on her shoulder



“It was so easy to buy a tattoo gun off the internet for about £50,” says Holly Aston, of Birmingham. That’s her with the squirting penis tattoo on her right shoulder.

“You get the full kit of needles and ink and it’s easy to operate, though they give you no instructions about keeping it sterile. We were very lucky not to get an infection or blood poisoning. I had tattoo parties with my mates. We’d have some drinks and tattoo each other – it was stupid.
