Blast from the past: the hilarious/creepy laughing quadruplets October 1, 2008

This is one of my favorite videos of all time, because it just makes me crack up.  It’s also sort of chilren-of-the-corn-ish (not unlike Abby Corn-ish, the ugly home-wrecker).

 

It’s not nearly as creepy as this video of children singing “Hail Obama”, however.  I’m not sure who thought this was going to be determining factor for the (according to CNN today) 8% of undecided voters, but seriously.  Please stop helping. 

 

PETA wants Ben & Jerry’s to use BREAST MILK. Say what? September 25, 2008

Sometimes I think the people at PETA just get really pissed and fed up at how little effect they’re having on the world, despite numerous celebrities posing naked to protest the sale of fur, so they all get drunk and come up with ridiculous shit.  At least that way they’ll get attention, right?

Mission accomplished.

PETA just sent a letter to Ben & Jerry’s formally requesting them to start using breast milk instead of cow’s milk, arguing it will reduce demand and prevent some of the suffering caused by slaughterhouses and dairy factories.  They also seem to think it’s good for us.  Personally, I think it’s a little crazy.  There are no other mammals (well, that I can think of off the top of my head, anyway) that continue to drink milk after toddlerhood.   Although I suppose it’s also crazy to drink the breast milk of another animal.  With cheerios.

Anyway, according to PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman, “The fact that human adults consume huge quantities of dairy products made from milk that was meant for a baby cow just doesn’t make sense. Everyone knows that ‘the breast is best,’ so Ben & Jerry’s could do consumers and cows a big favor by making the switch to breast milk.”

Strange stuff.

 

Human breast milk? Hmmm?

Nicole Kidman credits pregnancy to “miracle” waterfalls September 24, 2008

Nicole Kidman has struggled with fertility her whole life, to the extent that when she was 25 she and Tom Cruise decided to adopt two children: Connor and Bella.  Then out of nowhere, she got pregnant last year with husband Keith Urban while filming Baz Luhrmann’s latest epic, “Australia”.

To what does Kidman, 41, credit the miracle of Sunday Rose, the little girl she gave birth to this past July?  The Kununurra waterfalls in Australia, where they were filming the movie.

The waters of Kununurra.

The fertile waters of Kununurra.

“Seven babies were conceived out of this film and only one was a boy. There is something up there in the Kununurra water because we all went swimming in the waterfalls, so we can call it the fertility waters now.”

How nutty is that?  SEVEN babies?  Nifty!
