Love Motel for Dogs

A love motel in Soa Paulo has opened for amorous dogs. The love motel offers decorated rooms for dogs of pet owners who are concerned for their animal's needs.Robson Marinho, owner of a pet shop, built the air-conditioned room on the second floor and hung a sign that reads "Pet Love Motel". The rooms in the motel, at Barra Funda, are decorated in the same way as love motels for humans, with satin sheets, ceiling heart-shaped mirrors, special control panel to dim the lights, romantic music and lots of cushions. Even the windows have thick curtains for timid dogs that want discretion.

20 million risky condoms recalled

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South Africa's health department said Tuesday it has recalled 20 million potentially defective condoms approved by an official accused of taking bribes from a manufacturer.

There are up to 1,000 AIDS-related deaths in South Africa every day and free condom distribution is a crucial part of the government's efforts to combat the spread of the epidemic.

"An official of the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS), has put millions of people at risk by illegally passing millions of condoms, which had not met the quality assurance requirements," said health department spokesman Sibani Mngadi.

The F*ckin' French Toast

Three kids come down to the kitchen and sit around the breakfast table. The mother asks the oldest boy what he’d like to eat.

"I’ll have some f*ckin’ French toast," he says. The mother is outraged at his language, hits him, and sends him upstairs.

She asks the middle child what he wants. "Well, I guess that leaves more f*ckin’ French toast for me," he says. She is livid, smacks him, and sends him away.

Finally she asks the youngest son what he wants for breakfast.

"I don’t know," he says meekly, "but I definitely don’t want the f*ckin’ French toast."

Country Western Song Generator

Welcome to the Country Western Song Machine!

This site generates random lyrics for western songs. Pretty nifty, huh?

Click the "make another!" button to make another song... based on a MAD article by Frank Jacobs.


I met her in a nightmare in September;
I can still recall that purple dress she wore;
She was weighted down with Twinkies near Poughkeepsie,
and I knew I'd never rate her more than '4';
I promised her I'd warp her mind forever;
She said to me that Nixon didn't lie;
But who'd have thought she'd sky dive while in labor;
You'd think at least that she'd have said goodbye.


I support the country western song machine

YouTube criticized over Neo-Nazi clips

YouTube criticized over Neo-Nazi clips

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Video-sharing Web site YouTube has met with harsh criticism in Germany for hosting clips that incite racial hatred, according to a news report due to be broadcast on German public TV late on Monday.

The videos hosted on YouTube include clips of a 1940 anti-Semitic propaganda film "Jud Suess" and two music videos of outlawed German far-right rock band Landser, which show footage from World War II depicting Nazi military operations.

Report Mainz, which is due to air the program, said in a statement that Social Democrat (SPD) parliamentarian Dieter Wiefelspuetz said airing the clips on YouTube in Germany was scandalous. Report Mainz quoted him as saying: "Publishing these films amounts to aiding and abetting incitement of the people."

Report Mainz also said that Germany's Central Council of Jews Vice President Salomon Korn was considering pressing charges against Google Germany.

According to the statement from Report Mainz, German youth protection body has complained to Google Germany more than 100 times and asked Google, which bought YouTube last year, to remove the clips.

Some of the material has been on the site for almost a year.

Google Germany was not immediately available for comment.

More than 60 years after the Holocaust, Germany is grappling with a rise in support for Nazi ideas. Neo-Nazi violence in Germany has reached its highest level since reunification in 1990.


I have mixed feelings about the publication of Nazi propaganda. I don't want them to get free advertising but I also think they should be confronted. I also think the public should see the truth, what the Nazis are all about. Pouring sunshine into dark corners sometimes makes the rats scurry and the mildew dry up. So public awareness is a good thing.

But, what about the benefit to these types of organizations when it comes to recruiting and strengthening the bonds between members of Nazi groups and between the groups themselves?

Does the manufacture and distribution of Nazi propaganda stregthen the Nazi movement? I think maybe it does and I think that's what has Germany so upset. They have laws in place to prevent the rise to power of the Nazis or other hate groups that might spawn another Holocaust. Germany has codified into law its opposition to Nazism.

So, I guess the reaction to the Nazi propaganda is a bit different over there.

Coconut Sour Cream Cake

I'm fiddling around over at Delphi Forums today and came across this recipe and don't want to copy and print and find a recipe card and all that so need to store it somewhere...

Coconut Sour Cream Cake

1 Duncan Hines, butter flavor cake mix.....
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups sour cream
1 package (12 ounces) frozen coconut, thawed
1 1/2 cups whipped topping

Directions for coconut cake: Prepare cake mix according to directions, baking two 8-inch layers. Cool completely and split each layer horizontally.

Combine sugar, sour cream, and coconut; blend well and chill.

Reserve 1 cup sour cream for coconut cake frosting and spread remaining sour cream mixture between layers.

Combine reserved 1 cup sour cream mixture with the 1 1/2 cups whipped topping; blend until smooth. Spread over top and on sides of coconut cake.

Keep sour cream coconut cake in an airtight container and store in refrigerator.

This recipe came from a poster named "Carol" on the Gail's Bluebird Cafe Delphi Forum (you have to join Delphi - FREE - to see the forums but DO NOT USE YOUR REAL EMAIL TO SIGN UP. You must use an email you created just to receive spam because Delphi can and will sell your email addy to kajillions of spammers).

Interesting Book: "Sabotage in the American Workplace"

Here are all the fantasies you've ever had about getting back at an employer but didn't dare try. Many of the stories would be funny if their causes hadn't been fed by such discontent. And lest you think this is unique or endemic to late-20th-century America, there are scores of historical quotations and anecdotes.

FROM AN AMAZON.COM REVIEWER: This is not a book for employers, bosses, or anyone who represents authority in the workplace. (Although they might learn something from reading it.) No, this is a book for those who want to be reassured that they are not the only people who have ever lashed back at their employers. For those who are considering such actions, it gives some excellent examples of what can be done. There are also numerous quotes and news-clips about sabotage, employee moral, and the nature of work. The book is broken down by catagories such as office workplaces, entertainment industry, and the food services. Some anecdotes pale in comparison to others, but it is important to understand that Martin Sprouse collected stories from people from all walks of life. Some were more daring than others, but the emotions behind their actions are all the same. It is best read a few anecdotes at a time, otherwise the impact of each individual action is lost in a miasma of backlash. In all it is an enlivened book which speaks volumes as to the ways that the business place fails to inspire the loyalty or satisfaction which is so ofted touted as an essential aspect of productive work.

"Making it to Guinness World Records is indeed a special occasion for me and my family," said Radhakant. "God has been very kind to me."

Moist Towelette Collecting

Yes, this is an actual hobby that someone has. From the website's neat organization, it looks like there's more to the art and science of moist towelette collecting than you could shake a stick at. Or something. From the website:

Many individuals have asked me in past years, "Why moist towelette collecting?", "Why not stamp collecting, or numismatics?"

"To be different, perhaps?"

Well, I must admit that at first that was part of the appeal, but I have since become aware of the strong movement of Moist Towelette enthusiasts, and accepted that I am not alone in my fascination / hobby.

"For the money?"

It would be a lie to say that the future worth of a Moist Towelette compared to its present cost was not extremely inviting. Though the investment is obviously worthwhile, I don't believe this to be my major reason for collecting.

I must say my true motivation are the towels themselves. Each Moist Towelette is like a work of art. Though working in defined parameters, the designers manage to make each towelette applicable to their customer. A Moist Towelette collection can show restaurants, casinos (and a surprising variety of other locations) from across a continent (or nay, the entire world) in a single, small space.

Despite whatever differences we have as humans, we can all satisfy the natural urge to clean ourselves with lemon-scented, moist-filled napkins.

VISIT THE MOIST TOWELETTE COLLECTING WEBSITE to see their photo gallery, "The Moist Towelette Awards," listen to their theme song, play the moist towelette game, study the anatomy of a towelette, answer the question, "Why moist towelettes?" and benefit from their list of moist towelette industry contacts.

Eat a Bug!

The "Eating Bugs!" website will teach you to love the little buggers and to eat them! From the website:
Some insects are edible. In fact, most insects are edible, but there are a few species that are especially palatable, nutritious, and easily obtainable. I will concentrate on these.

Many species of insects are lower in fat, higher in protein, and have a better feed to meat ratio than beef, lamb, pork, or chicken.

Insects are tasty. Really! Even if you are too squeamish to have them as a main dish, you can make insect flour and add it to bread and other dishes for an added protein boost.

Insects are easy to raise. There is no manure forking. No hay bale lifting. No veterinary bills. You can raise them in an apartment without getting complaints.
P.S. This buggy stuff is not kosher. You know... just sayin.'

The Chicken Gun

The Chicken Gun
Scientists at NASA built a gun specifically to launch dead chickens at the windshields of airliners, military jets and the space shuttle, all traveling at maximum velocity. The idea is to simulate the frequent incidents of collisions with airborne fowl to test the strength of the windshields.
British engineers heard about the gun and were eager to test it on the windshields of their new high speed trains. Arrangements were made, and a gun was sent to the British engineers.
When the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the Chicken hurtled out of the barrel, crashed into the shatter-proof windshield, smashed it to smithereens, blasted through the control console, snapped the engineer's backrest in two and embedded itself in the back wall of the cabin, like an arrow shot from a bow.
The horrified Britons sent NASA the disastrous results of the experiment, along with the designs of the windshield, and begged the U.S. scientists for suggestions.
NASA responded with a one-line memo: "Thaw the chicken."
