The disturbing trend of pet piercing

When I was just a young boy only women and sailors had piercings, and it was sufficient to have just one ring per ear. However, as the decades have passed, so the desire for more piercings in more unusual places has increased. Popular culture has lead today's trendsetters to bejewel previously unconsidered areas of their body in order to be unique. Just g**gle "extreme piercing" and you will find pictures of many similarly unique people.

Leap Second this Saturday

Following on from a previous story about phasing out the leap second, this Saturday scientists have decreed a leap second will be added at 23:59:59 GMT in order to realign the inaccuracies of the universe with hyper accurate man made technology.

Hooters for Women

Have you ever been to a Hooters restaurant? Well if you haven't then you are missing out on some great wings, and some reasonably attractive serving people wearing tight white shirts and tiny orange shorts, trying to earn enough tit tip money to get them through college.

Magic Mike

It seems that media is currently focusing on a single sector of the population. With the recent viral explosion of the '50 Shades' trilogy of books and the soon to be released 'Magic Mike', sex crazed women have become a very important demographic.

LGBT protest against 'straight' whiskey

For generations the phrase "Straight Bourbon Whiskey" has adorned various brands of whiskey labels, but a recent move by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) groups across the US may bring to an end that great labeling tradition.

Puzzle Time

We have been accused of being non-cerebral, base and even dull, so I plan to add a little intellectual culture with a fun puzzle. Don't expect New York Times crossword or anything impossible like that. We don't have aspirations that high. (Or puzzle writers that smart)
What we do have is a variation of the ancient Japanese number puzzle that we call Pseudo-ku.
Solve it! If you dare....

Where there's a will there's a William

Today is Prince William's 30th birthday and the one piece of mail I bet he can't wait to open is the check from his mother's estate. Lucky William is not only 1 year older, but also $15.5 million richer, thanks to the inheritance from his mother - Diana, Princess of Wales.

Harry Potter actor could go to jail for exposing himself

Nicholas Read faces potential jail time after exposing himself on a train, again. He was caught flashing his junk to a student on a train while snapping a cellphone picture of her startled friend. This means he is in breach of a suspended 20 week sentence for performing a sex act before a teenager on a train back in 2010, and is now likely to be imprisoned.

Prostitution at the London Olympics

With less than 6 weeks to the 2012 Olympics, London has already been a massive influx of people into the area, and there are still many yet to arrive. The draw of the biggest sporting event of the year has been enormous and authorities and organisers have witnessed a great strain on resources in and around the UK capital.

Penguins are sexually deviant

When we changed our name to Slap the Penguin, we did not know that George Murray Levick, a biologist who accompanied Robert Scott on his Terra Nova Antarctica Trip had recorded perverted sexual behaviour amongst the Adelie penguins.

What your Dad really wants for Father's Day

Don't believe the hype. Your dad does not want most of the things the commercials tell you he wants. I am not a dad, but I know many dads, and although they pretend to like the 'World's Greatest Dad' mug, or the matching handkerchief and boxer shorts set, or the 3 pack of custom image golf balls with your face on it, these things are practically useless and unwanted.

World's Greatest Dud ! !

Where are they now? Top Gun

Way back in 1986, the world was exposed to the mach-2 macho movie, Top Gun, starring Tom Cruise and Kelly McGillis. The story revolves around a hot shot pilot who goes to the 'Top Gun' academy to fly with the best of the best and while he is there he serenades a chick called Charlie in a bar, pisses off a bunch of other pilots, loses his best friend and co-pilot, screws Charlie (who turns out to be his instructor) and beats the Russians in a cold war face off and then makes nice with all the pilots he pissed off earlier.

June Caption Contest

Contest Closed
Wow it's good to be back after a 2 month lay-off. If I had any sense I would have been researching and writing instead of just sitting around and doing nothing. Anyway, I just happened to have this picture floating around (please don't ask why) and it seemed perfect for the June Caption Contest.

The premise is simple, but the execution is challenging. Simply come up with a caption which turns the following image from being mildly amusing but slightly scary to being bedwettingly funny. Once you have concocted a caption, just go to the comments section and type it in for everyones pleasure.

The Penguin Returns

Happy June everyone. Did anybody miss us while we were gone?
Sorry to leave you all so suddenly, but that's what happens sometimes. Life is unpredictable. If it wasn't, then stories about bath salt crazed zombies eating face flesh in Miami wouldn't surprise us.
I'd double tap that
Aaaargh! Bath Salt Zombie!
