Looks like the husband came home early...

Guy dates girl on internet, turns out to be mom!

Skirt-chasing playboy Daniel Anceneaux spent weeks talking with a sensual woman on the Internet before arranging a romantic rendezvous at a remote beach -- and discovering that his on-line sweetie of six months was his own mother!

"I walked out on that dark beach thinking I was going to hook up with the girl of my dreams," the rattled bachelor later admitted. "And there she was, wearing white shorts and a pink tank top, just like she'd said she would.

"But when I got close, she turned around -- and we both got the shock of our lives. I mean, I didn't know what to say. All I could think was, 'Oh my God! it's Mama!' "

But the worst was yet to come. Just as the mortified mother and son realized the error of their ways, a patrolman passed by and cited them for visiting a restricted beach after dark.

"Danny and I were so flustered, we blurted out the whole story to the cop," recalled matronly mom Nicole, 52. "The policeman wrote a report, a local TV station got hold of it -- and the next thing we knew, our picture and our story was all over the 6 o'clock news. "People started pointing and laughing at us on the street -- and they haven't stopped laughing since."

The girl-crazy X-ray technician said he began flirting with normally straitlaced Nicole -- who lives six miles away in a Marseilles suburb -- while scouring the Internet for young ladies to put a little pizzazz in his life.

"Mom called herself Sweet Juliette and I called myself The Prince of Pleasure, and unfortunately, neither one of us had any idea who the other was," said flabbergasted Daniel.

"The conversations even got a little racy a couple of times. But I really started to fall for her, because there seemed to be a sensitive side that you don't see in many girls. She sent me poems she had written and told me about her dreams and desires, and it was really very romantic. The truth is, I got to see a side of my mom I'd never seen before. I'm grateful for that."

When starry-eyed Daniel asked Sweet Juliette to send him a picture, Nicole e-mailed him a photo of a curvy, half-clad cutie she'd scanned from a men's magazine.

"The girl in the picture was so beautiful, I begged Juliette to meet me on the beach -- and Mom said yes," he recalled. "Mom says she was falling for me, too, and she just wanted to meet me, even though she knew I'd be disappointed when I saw her."

"As for me, I figured I was going to find the girl of my dreams. I guess that's about as wrong as I've ever been."

Daniel admits he and his mother could do little but stammer and stutter around each other for days after their cyberspace exploits came to light. And his father Paul -- Nicole's husband of 27 years -- wasn't too happy when the story hit the news and his beer-drinking buddies made him the butt of their jokes.

"Dad was ticked for a while and he forbid Mom to talk to anybody on the Internet ever again," said embarrassed Daniel.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh… can you say weird! Talk about awkward! Article here.

Jennifer Lopez shaped potato for sale on eBay!

This guy claims that this potato bears a striking resemblance to J-Lo’s butt.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become the proud owner of a novelty shaped potato that bears a remarkable resemblance to Batty Queen Jennifer Lopez.”

Yeah… uh I think the seller of this item has got some issues of his own if he is staring vegetables and seeing celebrity’s body parts. Nevertheless, this is pretty funny. Click here to see the actual eBay listing.

Most girls you see in magazines are not real

How easy is it to change the appearance of the models you see in magazines? Pretty fu*kin easy. I found a great website that shows how each and every detail is refined to create the perfect girl. Obviously the girls in these magazines don’t naturally have perfect bodies, so with the help of computers- they get a ‘touch-up.’ Check out this website to see how it is all ‘photoshopped.’

Women are aroused by watching monkey sex?

According to a recent study, women are aroused by watching monkey sex.

The study, conducted by Meredith Chivers of the Center for Addiction and Mental Health and J. Michael Bailey of Northwestern University, was published in the October issue of Biological Psychology. The researchers found that while straight men are only aroused by females of the human variety, straight women are equally aroused by all human sexual activity, including lesbian, heterosexual and homosexual male sex, and at least somewhat aroused by nonhuman sex.

So does that mean if you take a girl home, and your [insert your pet name(s) here] is having sex with another animal… your chances of getting laid are increased? Hmmm… interesting to know. Click here to read full article about the study.

The worst fu*kin movies of 2005

According to the site RottenTomatoes.com (a popular movie review website), these are the worst movies released in theaters of 2005. I guess you can’t blame the producers of these movies. I mean, personally, when I heard the synopsis of a horror movie that took place in a wax museum… I totally thought that’d be something I wanted to see. What’s that? Paris Hilton stars in the movie? Awesome! (If you are not picking up on my sarcasm, please ask the closest person around you to slap you in the face)

Now, I have to say, for the most part, I pretty much agree with their choices on this list. But, what’s crazy though is that even though these movies are fu*kin horrible, most of these did pretty darn well in the box office.

Why do retailers ask for your phone number?

When you checkout at the store have you ever been asked…

"Can I have your phone number, please?"

Why do they ask for your number? What are they doing with it?

“It's so we can send you offers, coupons, et cetera, and we don't sell it to third parties, I'd say the majority of people like getting coupons."

Companies that specialize in enhancement can generate things like marketing profiles, credit reports or background checks on individuals. The retailer sends the database company the full list of phone numbers and receives back the same list, but enhanced with demographic information -- addresses, information about interests and hobbies, information about whether there's children in the home, et cetera".

There is such a fine line of how I feel about privacy rights of the consumer and the advantages of marketing profiles that companies can build to market you the right products. No one likes to be ‘monitored,’ but at the same time- you gotta think, it’s also convenient to see products and services you would be more interested in buying based on what you’ve purchased before.Click here to read the full article.

The Fart Filter, let your flatulence fly free

This flatulence deodorizer (also known as Flat-D) is a high tech filter that was original designed to defend against chemical warfare. Chemical defense suits were originally made of the material. 2+2 was put together, and wa-la… the Fart Filter was invented.

This supposedly works very, very well (not that I own one). The company makes a chair pad and an underwear insert. This product is a pad that you attach to the inside of your underwear. It is slim, comfortable, and reusable.

Whether you are buying it for a gag gift or you will put it to great use, this thing is sure to work out for you in some way. Click here to see an eBay auction for one of these things. Or click here to buy one from an online store for $13.

Top TV Shows of 2005

What does the American public love more than feeding it’s materialistic appetite of receiving exciting kick-ass gifts from friends and family? Lists, lists, and more lists. That’s right. The month of December is a chance for the media to feed the American craving to see “Top 10 Lists” and numerous countdowns. Why do we love them? Who knows. Who cares.

With that optimistic attitude out of the way- here is the Top TV Shows list of 2005. Keep in mind this list shows not the most ‘watched’ TV shows, it reflects the most ‘searched for’ TV shows online. This list was provided by Lycos 50.

1. The Simpsons
2. Teen Titans
3. American Idol
4. Smallville
5. Big Brother
6. South Park
7. Lost
8. Family Guy
9. Survivor
10. Charmed

Suicide Barbie is a great Christmas Gift for kids

A Christmas tree decorated with only tampons!

"Your period comes every month, but X-mas comes only once a year. So bring that menstrual joy to this holiday season with these tampon tree decorations. From a string of tampon lights to a star at the top of the tree, feminine hygiene has never been so festive!"

Uh- what do you say to this? Uniquely clever, but utterly grotesque? Whatever. When it comes down to it, they are fu*kin tampons. Ewww! Click here to see more pictures.

Blockbuster Video now charging late fees?

Blockbuster Video stores in several states are quietly resuming late fees for customers who keep movies too long, rejecting the video-rental chain's national advertising of "No Late Fees!" because they can no longer keep popular movies on their shelves.

Many Arkansas stores resumed charging late fees and charges will apply again soon at some stores in Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee. The Arkansas attorney general's office has heard complaints that the fees were restarted without any notice.

Blockbuster last winter said it would drop late fees, but its fine print said the company would charge consumers the cost of the video if they kept the movies too long. If the movie was subsequently returned, the charge would be refunded but there would be a $1.25 restocking fee. In March, the Dallas-based company settled complaints heard in 47 states and authorized refunds for offended customers.

Randy Hargrove, a Blockbuster spokesman, says the decision to cancel the "no late fees" policy is made by independent franchises. About 4,600 company-owned Blockbuster locations will continue the program, he said.

"It's a mechanism by which we can get customers to bring the movies back. Our business is all about availabililty. If somebody keeps a new release that's in high demand out for two weeks, that means it's not there for someone else to rent.”

Horse-ca-ca. If you advertise the fact you don’t charge late fees. It should = no late fees. If this ‘destroys’ your corporate model, Blockbuster should think of a way to reposition themselves in the market without lying to the customer. What would I do in Blockbuster’s situation? I would offer incentives to return movies on time/early. Set a pricing structure with either dollar amount or point rewards. Penalizing the customer taking advantage of what is advertised (no late fees) is just a bad practice. No one likes taken advantage of (well, almost nobody). That’s my two cents. Article here.
