Still....this week I was able to find four "back-page" news stories to share.
WARNING: the first news story comes with a PG13 rating today. Feel free to adjust that age up or down depending on your level of comfort with a certain four letter word.
The Billboard says WHAT??????
|Seriously? This is a marketing plan????|
A giant risque billboard has gone up on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles that is sure to slow traffic along the Sunset Strip.
CougarLife.com describes itself as "the premier online dating service that pairs women in their prime with younger men and ends the double standard!"
Elissa Buchter, spokeswoman for Cougar Life and a cougar herself, told the media that the billboard is the first of more the company hopes to put up in Hollywood and West Hollywood. The company is targeting the area, Buchter said, because it is the national "cougar capital" -- with more Cougar Life members in the 90069 zip code than anywhere else in the U.S.
Regarding the term "mother f*ckers," she commented, "The majority of cougars are single moms. And we thought it'd be a good way to get their attention and make a splash."
I don't know about the "making a splash" part, but definitely this is getting attention. I think that maybe a few might disagree with the "good way" part of her statement.
Dancing in the Street...on a Pole
Prostitutes in New Zealand are being accused of destroying street signs by performing pole dancing routines on poles that can't support their weight.
The officials in South Auckland, New Zealand are having an issue with their city's signs. The problem is that local prostitutes are being accused of destroying street signs by using them for pole dancing routines designed to attract customers.
In the last 18 months, more than 40 poles have been bent, buckled or broken in the past 18 months and the signs, which include notices of parking restrictions, cost taxpayers thousands of dollars to replace.
Elected officials such as Donna Lee say the culprits are local prostitutes who use them like stripper poles in a dance club. "The poles are part of their soliciting equipment and they often snap them," she told The Telegraph. "Some of the prostitutes are big, strong people."
I think they need to replace those street signs with a more quality product. Do street signs come in "titanium"? There's probably a advertising opportunity there somewhere. South Auckland has "big strong prostitutes"....surely, there is a way to make that work for them.
Quality Check Gone BadSaturday was a bad day for Tavares Donnell Colbert. The Oklahoma man accidentally shot himself in the genitals, and then got arrested for it, The Weekly Vice reported.
Cops met up with Colbert -- a convicted drug dealer out of Watonga -- at a hospital at about 9 a.m. Colbert allegedly told officers that he found the gun somewhere in Kansas and had plans to sell it at a convenience store.
Prior to meeting up with the gun's purchaser at the 7 Eleven, he pulled his truck over to the side of the road, to make sure the gun worked. (how considerate that he didn't want to sell a defective gun.)
The gun worked fine. Unfortunately for him he had the gun aimed at his private parts. After shooting himself, he panicked and drove to the hospital.
Colbert isn't allowed to carry a firearm because he's a convicted felon with a long rap sheet, so cops arrested him after he was treated, according to reports.
What makes this story even better is this guy has a bias....he hates dumb people. On if Facebook page he posted "Boy sum people aint shit!!!!!!!! They momma and daddy shouldnt of even named them shoulda just let them drop and bust they head when they were born."
Clearly this is a genius with exceptional skills in spelling and grammar. He might want to work on his aim a bit.
