Not News of the Week

For the first time in over a year, it’s time for another edition of the weirdest and wackiest stories from around the world. It’s time for the not news of the week.

An Egyptian man watched his first ever porn film while at an internet cafe. He claims he did so out of curiosity. What he hadn’t counted on was that the star of his first porno would be his wife. It turns out that first video he clicked on starred his wife in a film she made with an ex-boyfriend while cheating on her husband. The wife also told her husband that she was the star of a total of 11 amateur porn films. I wonder what’s rougher: Seeing your wife as the star of the first porno you watch, finding out your wife cheated on you to make said porno or that she’s made 11 films while being married to you?

Meet Women Thanks To Words With Friends (Infographic)

I always thought that Words With Friends was just a Scrabble knock-off whose fame was limited to a people on Facebook and as the reason that Alec Baldwin got thrown off an airplane. That’s what I get for owning a BlackBerry. It turns out that it’s more powerful than I could possibly imagined. A survey by the makers of Words With Friends says that one in ten players say that the game has led directly to a hookup.

For that and other stats related to relationships and Words With Friends, we have a handy infographic after the jump. Continue reading

Man Lab Link-Off: Mind Blowing

It’s time for more links from your friends at the Man Lab. Sometimes I’m not sure whether this post is supposed to link to eye candy or advice for guys. Either way, we’ll start with the clinically underrated Anne V.

Wednesday Link-Off: Up in the Air

It’s Jackie here taking over for Steve as he’s exploring life in the big city this week. I’m not as media savvy as Steve, but hopefully there’s enough bizarre stories here to keep you preoccupied for the day. In celebration of the summer finale of White Collar that just aired last night, here’s Hilarie Burton to kick off the link-off.

After the jump, having sex on the job is probably a bad idea, a marathon can’t get in the way between a man and his alcohol, a tour of the house from Disney/Pixar’s Up and apparently there’s a guideline to accurately depict aliens in film. Continue reading

Man Lab Link-Off: We’re Not Faking It

After a week off, it’s time for the return of the Man Lab’s linkdump to help the modern man. To make up for our absence, here’s Kate Upton.

The latest fad in scientific studies is on the health benefits of sex. Good news: Sex is good for you. Bad news: None of these studies are looking for test subjects in my neck of the woods. (Wall Street Journal)

Entertainment Link-Off: Notorious

I’ve drawn in for Jackie for this week’s edition of the Entertainment Link-Off. To kick things off, here’s Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive Katrina Bowden. If you watch 30 Rock (which I haven’t since the first episode with the exception of the Night Court episode), you might have seen her.

The FBI don’t have a reputation for being the most open agency of the US government but they made an effort this week. They’ve made files from their investigation into the murder of Notorious BIG open to the public. (LA Times)

After the jump, Snooki goes to WrestleMania, the richest characters of all-time, and a Star Wars parody of Friday. Continue reading

Not News of the Week

It’s time for all the news that’s not fit for print. It’s time for the Not News of the Week.

A man in Kentucky has come up with a new excuse to get off on DUI charges and it has to do with him trying to get off. He claimed that the erratic driving that caused him to be pulled over was because his girlfriend was performing oral sex on him while he was driving. The man was pulled over by the cops, failed several field sobriety tests and blew 0.54 on the breathalyzer. I’m not a lawyer but I think that the judge would swallow this defense. Continue reading

Not News of the Week

If it’s not worth talking about, then it must be the Not News of the Week.

We’ve all pocket dialled at least once but it’s never really led to anything more than using up a few minutes of our phone plans. For one man in Illinois, a pocket dial led to a SWAT team to surround the school where he worked. The man, a teacher by day, was driving home with his phone in his back pocket when he butt dialled his wife. She heard the muffled sounds of hip hop music so she called 911 assuming her husband was being held hostage at work. For three hours, a SWAT team scoured the school looking for the man and his kidnappers but it wasn’t until police went to his home three hours later that they called off the search. By that time, there were three media helicopters and several dozen people watching outside the school. That would probably make it the most expensive butt dial in the history of cell phones.

The College Sexicon

ABC News’ Nightline is considered a respectable news program in the world of American television (which is a relative thing). However, on Monday, they left the beaten path of important news to warn America of a peril that is sweeping the college campuses of their great nation. Apparently, young people are having sex and talking about it online. Oh, the shock and horror of it all.

Getting past all the shock of the sleeping pensioners that “watch” Nightline, one good thing came out of last night’s episode. They’ve come up with a new “sex lexicon” of college hook-up terms for the over 65 crowd. I thought it was so good that we’re sharing their sexicon with you after the jump. Continue reading

Not News of the Week

A day late and a dollar short but it’s still the weirdest and wackiest stories from around the world. It’s the Not News of the Week.

Let’s lead off with the “Only in America” story of the week. A middle school student in New York City was led out of class in handcuffs after drawing on a desk with a marker. She wrote “Lex was here 2/1/10” and “I love my friends Abby and Faith.” That was enough to earn the 12-year-old girl a several hour trip to a police station complete with a ride in a squad car. The New York Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit last month over at least 20 similar arrests by school safety officers. Despite the ridiculous nature of the arrest, the girl will have to complete eight hours of community service, a book report and an essay on what she learned from this experience. Continue reading
