Humans are designed to squat and the modern invention of sitting on a toilet keeps a kink in the colon.

Recession Puts a Kink in Operation
That Uses Locks to Soak Up Oil Spills



The recession is crimping the business of a San Francisco nonprofit that recycles human hair into mats that are used to clean up oil spills.


Koons' entire oeuvre to date, at a decidely unKoonsian price
From kinky to kitsch via conceptual, Jeff Koons’ art is anything but conformist. Since he stunned the art world in the 1980s with basketball sculptures and stainless steel blow-ups, Koons has been contemporary art's bad boy—a reputation he (ahem) nailed in the early 90s via works depicting him in flagrante delicto with then-wife Cicciolina, the Italian porn star-cum-politician. He followed these with Puppy, a 40-foot tall floral terrier installed at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. Koons’ exploitation of the banal, and aggrandizement of kitsch and pop imagery, has become his trademark. Despite his many critics, the work commands millions at auction and Koons' position at the forefront of contemporary art is indisputable.

Helping Glass Slippers and Kinky Boots Shine

By PATRICK HEALY

"Kinky Boots," which had a run in Chicago before coming to Broadway, and "Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella," with no out-of-town run, both got major surgery because of surveys of preview audiences.





 A lot of time and discussion have been spent deciphering the extraordinary success of “Downton Abbey,” but it’s actually pretty simple. This series about British aristocrats and their servants is “Fifty Shades of Grey”: soft-core pornography, but fixated on breeding and heritage rather than kinky sex. 我們已經花費太多時間、太多口舌,研究《唐頓莊園》(Downton Abbey)為何如此成功,但是實際上原因很簡單。這部關於英國貴族和僕人的系列電視劇,像《格雷的五十道陰影》(Fifty Shades of Grey)一樣,是一部軟色情之作,但是它關注的重點是子嗣和遺產,而不是有點變態的性愛。





德國最新調查:玩具含有害物質現象很普遍

法新社 / 德國之聲:雖然美泰向中國道了歉。但責任問題是一個問題,玩具等是否含有有害物質是另一個問題。據德國專業刊物Oekotest(生態試驗)做的一個檢驗 調查,21種室外玩具腫,有10種被打了不及格或者不良的分,其中有9種含有環芳烴,對這種化學物質,並沒有法定的極限值規定。
這個刊物的10月號共公佈過去兩年裏對130種特殊產品的檢驗結果。在檢查小孩墊毯方面,發現3種產品含有香胺,但只有一種不可出售,因為它超過了每公斤30毫克的極限值。12種木偶玩具中有4種含有這種顏料,由於這種顏料有致癌可能,該專業刊物建議不要銷售這些產品。
該刊物建議消費者多買簡單的傳統玩具,複雜的玩具容易含各種有害物質。刊物專家還提出了注意商品標誌的一系列建議,比如塑膠玩具上最好標出“不含PVC”等。但該刊物並沒有特別指出哪些產品是哪個國家產的,只說具體受檢查物件。
Sausage (Wurst)
German sausages, or wurst, cover a wide range of cooked, uncooked and unfilled styles (no casing), such as frankfurters, bratwurst, rindswurst, blargenwurst, knackwurst, and bockwurst.

Sausage Proves to Be Wurst Place for Sex Toy

A butcher's shop employee in the city of Mannheim got some bad vibrations when handling a sausage given to her by a customer for safe-keeping. When cut open, the wurst was revealed to contain a sex toy.

The customer had asked the employee to store his sausage, which he intended to take back with him to Dubai, in her refrigerator so it wouldn't go off before he flew out. But the unusual weight of the, um, package aroused her suspicion.

She summoned the local police, who discovered that the sausage contained an unspecified device intended to give pleasure in ways foreign to the nature of a normal food product.

"The attending officers determined that the customer was attempting, in this delicate way, to conceal a sex toy," the police wrote in their report of the incident.

Hiding the sausage is one thing -- hiding a sex gizmo in a sausage is another.

Authorities suspect that the customer was intending to smuggle the device into Dubai, where sex toys are illegal.

The customer never turned up to reclaim the wurst, or its
kinky contents, and police have no grounds for pressing charges.

"That sort of thing isn't illegal in our country," said a police spokesperson to the dpa news agency.
