Apparently some people have a problem with fake boobs

A SURFERS Paradise nightclub is promoting breast enlargement surgery as a prize in a controversial lottery which has infuriated body image experts, women's groups and plastic surgeons.

Sin City Nightclub this week launched posters of well-endowed, lingerie-clad women holding a sign saying "Win a boob job worth $10,000", the Gold Coast Bulletin said.

Nightclub owner Jamie Pickering said male and female patrons at the April 3 Ibiza-themed party at the heart of the promotion would be given scratchie-style tickets that would give them either minor prizes or, if their scratchie dictated, a chance to enter the ticket in the barrel for the "boob job" draw.

However, a disclaimer on the promo poster states the prize is actually $10,000 cash, with the nightclub simply suggesting a boob job as a way to spend the windfall.

Women's Network Australia founder Lynette Palmen said the marketing ploy was aimed at the ''inflated-ego Kardashian crowd'' while a spokesman for the Department of Justice and Attorney-General said the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation was investigating the promotion.

So why does this promotion stand out to the Women's Network Australia? Every day some women get breast enhancement surgery. Surprisingly, every day some women get breast reduction surgery. I know! but it really happens. I know two women who have had reduction surgery.

I'm not against the work of any groups that want to promote healthy lifestyles and positive self images of women. I find confident women who are comfortable in their own skin very attractive. Evolution has played a horrible trick on women. Men choose women for looks, its a fact. If men were wired to choose women for their softball playing skills and their nursing skills I'd be married to the softball playing nurse equivalent of Helen of Troy or perhaps even Cleopatra.

You are fooling yourself if you think that we can undo hundreds of thousands of years of evolution. Making men attracted to something other than what has been wired into their brains just isn't in the cards genes. So the next time you see a sign promoting a boob job competition remember that you are a intelligent, sexy, confident woman and realize the contest is for the weaker of your sex who think that having big boobs is the way to a man's heart. Everyone knows that the way to man's heart is through his stomach turning a double play and then bandaging up the guy's leg you just tore a hole in with your cleats. If you want to hook a good man, who doesn't need a compass to know which way the wind shines, buy a glove, toss and the ball around and go to nursing school.

Infrequent sex can KILL YOU! (extreme reverb)

It seems impossible to get through winter without hearing a news story about some poor guy who drops dead of a heart attack while shoveling snow. And TV dramas love the scene where the guy expires while in bed with a beauteous babe. Now it looks like both scenarios have a basis in science.

They never really say how frequently I'm supposed to have sex or exercise. There is something in there about once a week...I can live with that.

The picture shows what can happen to your feet when you wear ill fitting shoes.

Frank Neuhauser, the first spelling bee champ, dead, 97

WASHINGTON — Frank Neuhauser, who in 1925 won the first U.S. national spelling bee with the word "gladiolus," has died. He was 97.

Neuhauser was a patent lawyer who lived in Silver Spring, Maryland. He died March 11 in his home, Francis J. Collins Funeral Home has verified. He had myelodysplastic syndrome, a blood disease, The Washington Post reported.

He was 11 years old when he won the championship. His prizes included $500 in gold and a trip to the White House to meet President Calvin Coolidge.

500$ in gold. SWEEEEET. It was probably in coin form. Twenty-five 20$ gold pieces. I wonder if that money helped that family through the depression?

I caught this story with a typo that they have since corrected. How do you miss that?

Talk about Winning

SAN DIEGO -- San Diego lifeguards Tuesday rescued a young woman who apparently became stranded on a cliff above Black's Beach without her clothes.

Dozens of lifeguards and Fire Engine Company 9 were sent to the Glider Port at about 2:15 p.m., according to San Diego Fire and Rescue Department spokesman Maurice Luque.

DOZENS!!! Dozen's of life guards, probably 8 news helicopters, 2 companies of fire fighters as well. I'll bet there were a dozen more pissed off they didn't roll for that.

Irony, defined Rhode Island style

PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The two men charged in Friday's double shooting outside the Institute for the Study and Practice of Nonviolence have been involved in gunfire in South Providence before -- one as a victim and the other as a shooter, according to the police.

You are doing it WRONG. Irony is seldom as ironic as this.

Meet the 2011 Hide-n-Seek World Champion

STOUTLAND, Mo. -- After almost 12 hours, searchers found 4-year-old Bryce McCraken on Sunday night. The Camden County sheriff says the boy will be checked out but appears to be okay.

Bryce disappeared on Sunday afternoon while playing hide-and-seek with some other kids. More than 250 volunteers and first responders united to walk the woods near the family's home outside Stoutland to search for the boy.

Enjoy the crown little buddy.
