HOT ROD MAGAZINE-Jerry Heasley 2/19/2015

Standing by his '60 survivor with 11,870 miles on the odometer, Gary Skinner told us, "I rode in it when it was brand-new. The owner put it up in 1968 and didn't drive it again." All the while, Skinner waited for his chance. He grew up with the original owner Ed Graye, a schoolteacher from the little town of West Frankfort, Illinois...

While the sound of it might be something quite atrocious, if you thrash it loud enough you'll always sound precocious.
That seems to be the mantra of YouTube video remixer Andy Rehfeldt, who has created a heavy metal cover of the Mary Poppins classic Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious full of guitar shreds and guttural growls, with vocals from Sera Hatchett from Mercy Brown.

We found a GREAT story about a woman who got revenge on the coworkers who kept stealing her lunch . . . and it's a MILLION times more effective than a passive-aggressive note.


A guy posted on Reddit.com that his wife was having trouble with coworkers taking her lunch from the fridge at work. So he made her some buffalo wings . . . but covered them in ghost pepper chili powder and Blair's 4am Reserve.


If you don't know, ghost peppers are one of the world's hottest chilies, and Blair's 4am Reserve is one of the hottest hot sauces known to man. It's 7,476 times spicier than Tabasco.


He ate a couple wings to make sure they wouldn't KILL anybody, and says they were REALLY hot. Nothing would cut the heat, and the ghost chilies actually got HOTTER as time went on.


So his wife brought them to work, and just before lunch, they heard someone YELL from the kitchen. It was one of the younger guys she works with . . . and he ran to the bathroom and wound up vomiting uncontrollably.


No one has touched her lunch since.

"Guardians of the Galaxy" relied on plenty of animation. But the toughest part of the animators' jobs was designing Groot's ROOT. And by that I mean his crotch, which they worked hard to make completely un-suggestive.

Director JAMES GUNN says, quote, "[It was] incredibly difficult to work on the crotch area . . . either a piece of bark looked too cheesy and fig leaf-like or a root was in just the wrong place that looked like an ingrown penis.

"There were more iterations of Groot's crotch than any part of his body."

An ad for a new product called "The Face Blanket" is making the rounds online. It's a small fleece blanket with an air hole in the middle . . . specifically for people who have trouble sleeping when their face is cold. (???)


Apparently the guy who came up with it knows it's a dumb idea, because the second half of the ad makes fun of it, and talks about OTHER uses . . . like hiding your face when you don't want to talk to someone at a party.


It looks like you CAN actually buy them for ten bucks though, on his website FaceBlanketsPlus.com.

"American Horror Story" actor BEN WOOLF died yesterday from injuries he suffered last week, when he was struck on the head by the side view mirror of an SUV while he was crossing Hollywood Boulevard. He was only 34 years old.


Woolf played Meep on "American Horror Story: Freak Show" . . . and the "Infantata" monster on the show's first season, which everyone now refers to as "American Horror Story: Murder House".


He was 4 feet 4 inches tall, and was jaywalking at the time . . . so the driver of the SUV wasn't ticketed or charged.

A Saturday playoff hockey game between Minnesota high schools Benilde-St. Margaret's and Eden Prairie turned into a line brawl with less than a second remaining.
Eden Prairie held a 1-0 lead with 0.6 seconds left in the third period when the high school kids paired up and punched each other. According to the Star Tribune, officials handed out a total of 18 penalties to both teams for the fight.
Three of Eden Prairie's players won't suit up for Wednesday's title game against Minnetonka: winger Marc Sullivan, winger Riley Argetsinger, and defenseman Louie Roehl.

From Chuck Lorre's final Vanity Card.....

"I know a lot of you might be disappointed that you didn't get to see Charlie Sheen in tonight's finale. For the record, he was offered a role. Our idea was to have him walk up to the front door in the last scene, ring the doorbell, then turn, look directly into the camera and go off on a maniacal rant about the dangers of drug abuse. He would then explain that these dangers only applied to average people. That he was far from average. He was a ninja warrior from Mars. He was invincible.
And then we would drop a piano on him.
We thought it was funny.
He didn't.
Instead, he wanted us to write a heart warming scene that would set up his return to primetime TV in a new sitcom called The Harpers starring him and Jon Cryer. We thought that was funny too." - Chuck Lorre.

The only thing that's weird about this business is that no one thought of it sooner.


There's a new toy company called Cuddle Clones that will make you a stuffed animal replica of your PET. You send them some photos and information, and they send you back a stuffed animal that looks as similar to your pet as possible.


They do dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, pigs, horses . . . you name it. And based on the photos we've seen, they're actually pretty accurate.


You can do it to get a stuffed version of a pet that's still alive . . . maybe to take on vacation, or send to college with your emotionally-stilted child.


Or you can do it to get a stuffed version of a DEAD pet . . . which is creepy, but still way less creepy than going to a taxidermist.


You can order yours at CuddleClones.com. It starts at $199 for dogs and cats, and they've already got so many orders that people who get in now will probably have to wait until July to get their stuffed animals.

"Esquire" named 29-year-old Ralitsa Ivanoca the hottest woman in Bulgaria back in 2010. She's been the cover model for the Bulgarian version of "Maxim" twice, and still works as a professional model today.


But none of that mattered early Wednesday morning, when she was driving SO DRUNK through Florida that she had no idea where she was.


A cop in Land O' Lakes, Florida pulled her over for swerving, and she told him she was trying to drive from Tampa to her home in St. Petersburg.


But she'd driven almost 30 miles in the wrong direction. Maybe she was trying to drive to St. Petersburg, Russia?


She failed some sobriety tests and was arrested for a DUI.

Kevin Garnett

Kevin Garnett agreed to drop his no-trade clause Thursday and accept a trade from the Brooklyn Nets to the Timberwolves for Thaddeus Young, according to ESPN sources and multiple reports.

ESPN first reported the possibility of the deal Wednesday night. David Aldridge of NBA.com was the first to report Garnett would waive his no-trade clause.

The move returns Garnett to Minnesota, the team that drafted him in 1995.

House Homeland Security Committee
Rudy Giuliani is catching heat for telling donors at a dinner last night that President Obama doesn't love his country.

"I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America," Giuliani said at the fundraiser, held at New York's 21 Club. "He doesn't love you. And he doesn't love me. He wasn't brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country."

Giuliani made the remarks while standing a few feet away from Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, whom Giuliani more or less endorsed for president by saying, "We're the most exceptional country in the world. I'm looking for a presidential candidate who can express that... If it's you Scott, I'll endorse you."

An MTA worker in New York named Charles Gaston was working in a subway tunnel in the Bronx last week, and found a stray dog that was shivering and covered in filth. (We're not sure how old Charles is, but he looks to be in his 40s.)


Its hair was matted and almost black, and Charles thinks she might have been down there for MONTHS. None of the other workers would touch her, but she was really friendly.


So Charles decided HE would adopt her. She's a Shih Tzu-poodle mix, which you couldn't even tell before he cleaned her up. And he found her on the D Line, so he named her Delta.


He's been uploading pictures of her to an Instagram account he made called "Delta the Track Dog". And now the before-and-after photos are going viral, because it doesn't even look like the same dog.


A few people have come forward thinking Delta might be theirs, but Charles says he's already become so attached, he can't imagine giving her up.

Just when you think our society has reached peak bacon levels . . . BAM! Someone finds a new way to bacon up our food.


Little Caesars just announced their brand new BACON-WRAPPED PIZZA.


It's a deep-dish pizza, and the bacon kind of wraps around the pizza crust along the sides. It's thick-cut bacon, and they say it takes three-and-a-half FEET of bacon to wrap the entire pizza.


Each pizza is eight slices, and each slice including the bacon is 450 calories.


They're going to start selling it on Monday, and it'll be around through late April. Unless it's a hit . . . then you might see bacon-wrapped pizza FOREVER. Or at least until it kills us all.

Parents in Concord, California, are perplexed at the WestWind Solano Drive-In's decision to show Fifty Shades of Grey and the new SpongeBob movie on side-by-side screens at the same time.

As one family drove to the SpongeBob
screening, they couldn't help but pass right by Fifty Shades. "There was a woman being slapped, naked, bound up," explained mom Deborah Powell. "So we had to have our children close their eyes. I could see another car behind us that had children in there with their eyes closed."

While a theater employee acknowledged that the simultaneous booking was perhaps inappropriate, the drive-in's management has not responded to requests for comment.

Here are five new stats about America's dog obsession from a survey by Big Heart Pet Brands . . . the company behind Milk-Bone and Pup-Peroni.


1. People in California love dogs more than any other state . . . and we literally mean LOVE. The rankings were based on how much people hug and kiss their dogs. New York came in second.


2. People in Nebraska are LEAST affectionate with their dogs. People in Hawaii were second-least affectionate.


3. 86% of people say "I love you" to their dog at least once a month.


4. 66% of women and 56% of men say they're more attracted to someone who owns a dog.


5. 7% of women and 18% of men say their dog does help them get dates.

In a new interview with Sports Illustrated, former NBA great Charles Barkley reveals that he once played a game while semi-drunk.

Barkley had gone out to celebrate what he thought was a trade to the Los Angeles Lakers, but learned after a three-martini lunch that the deal had been nixed and that he'd have to suit up and play for the Philadelphia 76ers.

"I went to lunch and started drinking...Three hours later I get a f**king phone call from my agent saying that the Sixers backed out of the deal. I said, 'Oh, s**t, I'm feeling pretty good right now.' So I went out and played that night," he recalls. "I played pretty well."

How well? He scored 23 points and grabbed nine rebounds in a loss to Cleveland.

A Ph.D. student in Halifax, Canada, may soon revolutionize the painful process of tattoo removal.

Alec Falkenham, who studies pathology at Dalhousie University, has engineered a cream that penetrates the skin and kills only the cells that contain tattoo ink while leaving the surrounding cells unharmed.

"You're destroying the skin in the process of all the other techniques I've seen so far," Falkenham says. "What we're trying to do is stay away from actually destroying the skin while still removing the tattoo."

So far, the cream has shown successful results on mice; Falkenham will test the product on larger animals before moving on to humans. "I often hear from people asking if they can be a guinea pig," he adds.

An unflattering portrait of John Lennon has emerged thanks to newly discovered documents stemming from his 1968 divorce from his first wife, Cynthia.

According to a five-page letter written by the couple's housekeeper, Lennon slept with Yoko Ono at the couple's home while Cynthia was away, slapped their son Julian and often left marijuana lying around the house.

"Until about the summer [of] 1967, I thought the house was reasonably happy," Dorothy Jarlett wrote. "[The] atmosphere seemed to change and there seemed more tension. Mrs. Lennon was often depressed and unhappy...[She] was too soft with him."

The letter, which was found among Jarlett's possessions after her death last year, is expected to fetch $10,000 at an upcoming auction.

If you believe in superstitions, then 2015 may shape up to be a very unlucky year for you...

Today is the first of three Friday the 13ths that will take place this year, which is the most any one calendar year can have.

The last time there were three Friday the 13ths was in 2012; the phenomenon won't happen again until 2026.

But how did the idea that Friday the 13th is unlucky even begin? According to University of Delaware professor Thomas Fernsler, who's studied the day and goes by "Professor 13," it probably comes from the Bible, since there were 13 people (including Jesus) at the Last Supper, and the Crucifixion took place on a Friday night.

The ex-NASA engineer has tested and patented a microwave with an infrared camera that transmits the heat level of the dish you're warming up, and will automatically stop when it's cooked to perfection.

Better yet, unlike so many inventors these days, Rober isn't relying on crowdfunding to get his machine to market.

He's already got investors lined up, but needs to prove to them that the public would purchase his infrared microwave before they sign their checks.

Then she pretended she could barely drive a stick. But they eventually found out she's a professional STUNT driver . . . when she freaked them out by FLOORING it, and doing doughnuts in a parking lot.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says a lot of that increase happened in 2012 and 2013 . . . after the "Fifty Shades of Grey" trilogy came out.


58% of the patients were MALE, and had a median age of 44. The women had a median age of 30.

A team of French researchers claims they've finally solved one of earth's great scientific riddles: why popcorn makes a popping sound.

Similar to the pop of a champagne bottle, Emmanuel Virot and his colleagues have concluded that the popping sound is the result of pressurized water vapor rapidly escaping from the interior of a pan.

Using a high-speed camera that broke the popping process down to 2,900 frames per second, the researchers also concluded that when the kernel cracks, the escaping steam causes its interior to expand into the white flakes you ultimately eat.

The World Cup for that winter sport 'skeleton' was in Austria this weekend . . . that's the one like the luge, but you go headfirst. And on Saturday, a woman from Canada named Jane Channell ran into a PUSH BROOM someone left on the track.


She was okay and got a make-up run. But somehow it was SLOWER than the one where she hit the broom, and she finished seventh. (Search for "Jane Channell Hit by Broom During Race." It happens at :08, and the replay's at 1:40.)

An Australia man, who attempted a carjacking but failed and ended up being thrown to the ground by the car on a busy highway, was caught on camera by police. New South Wales police said John Tough and Calin McCabe led police on a 93 mile chase, beginning in Queensland, after a string of carjackings. Their vehicle was stopped on the Pacific Motorway but they drove over road spikes placed by police. A police helicopter camera captured Tough firing a handgun at police and other drivers before pointing the gun at another car in an apparent attempt to carjack but the driver drove his vehicle into Tough, knocking him to the ground and sending his gun flying. The men were both arrested and charged with intent to murder, discharging a firearm to avoid arret, attempted carjacking and a violation of Skye's law, aimed at strengthening punishments for suspects who lead police on dangerous high speed chases.

In yet another sign that America is close to reaching "peak sriracha," Heinz announced yesterday that it will debut a ketchup featuring the five-alarm pepper's flavor.

"The new offering adds a new kick to your favorite foods and recipes, pairing well with cheeseburgers, French fries and hot dogs, and is the perfect flavor boost for chicken and eggs," Heinz brand manager Joseph Giallenella told CNNMoney.

For the record, this is hardly Heinz's first foray into unorthodox flavors, as the company currently pairs jalapeños and balsamic vinegar with its ketchup.

In the new biography Stevie Nicks: Visions, Dreams & Rumours, Stevie Nicks admits that she had to resort to taking cocaine anally after doing so much that she burned a dime-sized hole in her nose.

"
There was no way to get off the white horse and I didn't want to," the now 66-year-old Fleetwood Mac singer declares.

Nicks also reveals that the band hired a luxurious private train in order to avoid body searches during one of their European tours.

Nicks, who has since gone to rehab and gotten clean, says her biggest regret is not getting her life together in time to have a baby.

Spider-Man is finally joining the Marvel superhero movies. Sony controls the rights to the character, so until now they've been doing their own thing.


That's why Spider-Man never appeared in any of the "Avengers" movies made by Marvel Studios . . . even though Marvel CREATED all the characters. Now they're teaming up . . . although Sony will still own and control any Spider-Man movies.


It's a bunch of confusing legal stuff, but basically it means Spider-Man can finally show up onscreen with Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor. They didn't say when, but it'll happen in a Marvel movie first, probably next year in "Captain America: Civil War".


Then Sony will release other Spider-Man movies starting in 2017, co-produced with Marvel . . . so those movies would have other Marvel characters in them.


They didn't say whether ANDREW GARFIELD will play Peter Parker, but probably not, since the last Spider-Man movie didn't do so hot.


In fact, that's probably why this whole thing happened . . . the Spider-Man movies have made Sony $4 billion, but a lot of people felt like they'd run out of gas. And comic book fans just want to see all the characters together.


(Sony had to keep making Spider-Man movies to hang on to the rights . . . that's why they rebooted the series in 2012 just five years after "Spider-Man 3" with Tobey Maguire. Fox owns the rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four. And Disney owns the rights to the Avengers.)

What's the sexiest accent in the world? The winner by a landslide was . . . a BRITISH accent.


We think that's a pretty bold claim. Sure, it might sound sexy when James Bond is introducing himself. But do you also find it sexy when some chimney sweep is spouting cockney jibberish? Also, when would either of those things ever happen?


Apparently people can get past that . . . because the British accent was voted the sexiest accent in the world by a LANDSLIDE. 27% of people say it's the world's sexiest accent. The second place accent only got 8.7% of the vote.


And that second place accent was . . . the AMERICAN accent. I'm thinking people mean the genteel Southern accent. Or maybe a harmless Midwest accent. Not, like, Boston.


The 10 sexiest accents are: British . . . American . . . Irish . . . Australian . . . French . . . Italian . . . Spanish . . . Scottish . . . Latin American . . . and Scandinavian.

Ladies and gentlemen, someone finally did it. Someone created a Keurig-like machine that serves up cold beers, and it's probably the only thing you'll need by your side all summer long!

SYNEK, the company behind this genius creation, started their campaign on KickStarter and managed to pull together $30,000 with 123 backers. SYNEK's goal is to reach at least $250,000 by July 24.

The project was started by Steve Young from St. Louis, who's clearly looking to make the world a better place by offering up what we've all been waiting for.

I mean, who wouldn't want a cold glass of brew at the push of a button right in your own kitchen? The SYNEK draft system will run for $299 if it goes into mass production. Keep in mind, this is only for the savviest beer drinkers!

Check out the video here for a closer look at how it works!

Chris Pratt made good on his Super Bowl bet with Chris Evans by visiting a cancer facility in Boston on Friday while dressed as his Guardians of the Galaxy character Star-Lord.

Yardbarker.com reports
that Pratt and Evans stopped by Boston's Christopher's Haven, an organization that provides housing for families with kids battling pediatric cancer, where they posed with residents.

"Made good on that #‎twitterbowl bet!" Pratt tweeted on Friday. "Starlord is [proud] to be in Boston today at #ChristophersHaven with Chris Evans and some awesome families."

Per the original bet, Pratt also took a number of pictures with a Tom Brady Jersey.

Despite winning, Evans shared that he'll be stopping by Seattle Children's dressed as Captain America in the coming days.

Some actors can be complete jerks. These two? AMAZING. Chris Pratt and Chris Evans, you, sirs, are awesome!

We've heard of Chinese companies rewarding their top employees with porn stars or prostitutes before . . . but we've never seen one give an employee a choice THIS difficult.


There's a tech security company in Beijing, China called Qihoo 360 . . . and Chinese New Year is coming up, so they're getting ready to give out bonuses. And they're giving their top performing employee a real Sophie's Choice . . .


He can either have a night of sex with a famous porn star . . . or a new Porsche.


They also threw in the option of a five-night vacation to Bali . . . but clearly that's not on the same level as the other two.


The company didn't deny the offer when the media contacted them. Sadly, it's doubtful we'll find out which one the employee of the year winds up choosing. And honestly, we have NO IDEA which way he'll go.

SAM SMITH had a huge night at the Grammys, winning FOUR awards: Best New Artist, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Pop Vocal Album.


After winning Record of the Year, he thanked the man who inspired his album, saying, quote, "Thanks so much for breaking my heart, because you got me four Grammys."


But somehow Sam was upstaged by BECK . . . who came out of nowhere to win Album of the Year and Rock Album of the Year.


One of the people he beat for Album of the Year was BEYONCÉ . . . and when he went up to collect the award, KANYE WEST jumped onstage like he was going to give him the Taylor Swift treatment. But he was JOKING . . . he just smiled and ducked back offstage.


It was actually kind of funny . . . and for a few seconds, it seemed like Kanye knew how to have fun. Beyoncé and JAY Z loved it, and so did Beck. He even wanted Kanye to stay onstage, but he went back to his seat.


Unfortunately Kanye ruined it after the show by saying he was serious, and bashing Beck and the Grammys. Quote, "I just know that the Grammys, if they want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us . . . and Beck needs to respect artistry, and he should've given his award to Beyoncé."


Then he ranted about how the Grammys are really just a promotional event to run commercials . . . but said he didn't interrupt Beck out of consideration for Kim, their daughter North, and his clothing line.


Not surprisingly, Kim wished he HAD interrupted and stolen the moment, because she wants him to, quote, "fight for creativity."

You know how you realize a once-famous person is still alive and your reaction is, "Wait, he's not dead yet?"

For years, that's how financial analysts have reacted to RadioShack's ongoing survival.

Well, those skeptics won't have the 94-year-old electronics chain to kick around anymore, as RadioShack filed for bankruptcy last night in a deal that will see many of its stores transform into Sprint retail locations.

In an interview with
Reuters, Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure said RadioShack had "incredible store locations" which would cut down on long waits at Sprint's current stores. "Customers have to wait one or two hours to get a phone and that's not acceptable," he added.

On February 2, a Seattle-area man by the name of Michael Sven Vedvik died at the age of 53, just a day after watching his beloved Seahawks blow the Super Bowl on a horrendous play call which resulted in a goal-line interception.

In fact, according to his family, which ran an obituary in the
Spokesman-Review yesterday, that's what killed him!

He was a small business owner in Kent, WA, and loved his family, work, clients, traveling, the Seahawks, and life," the obit reads. "We blame the Seahawks' lousy play call for Mike's untimely demise."

Ouch.


(Update: The family now says the whole thing was a JOKE!. Mike didn't even see the game. He recorded it so he could watch it later. His family was just having a little "fun". With his death.)

With the Grammys coming up this Sunday, here's a list of artists who've NEVER received one. And we're not counting those "lifetime achievement" awards.


Here are the 20 most nominated artists, who are without a win. It includes a lot of deserving artists. And also NICKELBACK.


1. R&B singer Brian McKnight and Snoop Dogg, with 16 nominations each . . . They share the record for most Grammy nominations without a win.

3. Joe Satriani, 15 nominations.

4. Martina McBride, 14 nominations.

5. Bjork and Nas, both with 13 nominations.

7. Diana Ross and Spyro Gyra, both with 12 nominations.

9. Katy Perry, Megadeth, Musiq Soulchild, Busta Rhymes, Connie Smith, Vanessa Williams, and Jazmine Sullivan, all with 11 nominations . . . Katy is up for TWO awards this year, including Best Pop Vocal Album.

16. Dierks Bentley, Me'Shell Ndegeocello, and Alan Parsons, all with 9 nominations . . . Dierks Bentley is up for Best Country Album this year.

19. Jamey Johnson and Tanya Tucker, both with 8 nominations.


Here are some other notable artists who are without any Grammy hardware:


Tupac Shakur, 7 nominations.

Public Enemy, Queens of the Stone Age, Nickelback, PJ Harvey, and Nicki Minaj, all with 6 nominations . . . Nicki has two chances to win this year, including "Anaconda" being up for Best Rap Song.

Depeche Mode, Queen, and Mos Def, all with 5 nominations.

The Notorious B.I.G., 4 nominations.

Guns N' Roses and Oasis, both with 3 nominations.

Justin Bieber and Patti Smith, both with 2 nominations.

KISS, Journey, Run-D.M.C., and Morrissey, all with 1 nomination.


Meanwhile, several artists never won a Grammy, but were handed Lifetime Achievement Awards, which I'm sure they were ecstatic to receive after a lifetime of being IGNORED. Here they are, along with the year they were finally recognized:


Chuck Berry, 1984

Jimi Hendrix, 1992

Little Richard, 1993

Patsy Cline, 1995

Buddy Holly, 1997

The Who, 2001

Bob Marley, 2001

Janis Joplin, 2005

The Doors, 2007

The Grateful Dead, 2007 . . . Strangely, they're nominated for their first regular Grammy this year. Their live album, "Spring 1990 (The Other One)", which was recorded 25 years ago, is up for "Best Boxed Or Special Limited Edition Package." (THIS is their first nomination? That's a slap in the face, right?)

The Ramones, 2011

Diana Ross, 2012

Also, Queen was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2008, despite never taking home an award.


And believe it or not, until last year, LED ZEPPELIN was only ever nominated for ONE Grammy. It was for Best New Artist in 1969, and they lost to Crosby, Stills & Nash.


But they had TWO nominations last year for their live album "Celebration Day", which was recorded in 2007. It won one of those, Best Rock Album. Also, Zeppelin got a Lifetime Achievement Grammy in 2005.


These artists not only never WON a Grammy . . . they were never even NOMINATED: The Kinks, The Strokes, The Talking Heads, and The Velvet Underground.


(This rundown was put together using multiple sources, including Grammy.com, which has a searchable database of past winners. And here again is a complete list of THIS year's nominees.)

Ladies, if you've been married a while and don't feel sexy anymore, here's some good news. If you ever decide to start HOOKING, apparently guys are willing to spend WAY more on you if you're married.


Police in Russia recently raided a brothel that was operating out of a seven-bedroom apartment, and found out the women were charging more than $350 an hour.


But it wasn't because they were all tens or anything . . . it was because every single one of them was MARRIED.


The brothel catered to men who wanted to get-it-on with another man's WIFE. So only married women were allowed to work there, and they had to have a valid marriage license as proof.


The average price for a hooker in Russia is only $60 an hour, by the way. Meaning guys were willing to spend more than FIVE TIMES as much to sleep with someone's old lady.


11 women were arrested, but prostitution isn't a big deal in Russia . . . it's just a $30 fine. But most of their HUSBANDS had no idea they were working as prostitutes . . . so they'll also have to deal with that.

Henry Damon, a married dad in Venezuela, may be the world's biggest Red Skull fan.

To make himself look like the bad guy in the Captain America comic-book series, he's tattooed his eyeballs black, removed part of his nose and had several subdermal implants surgically inserted in his forehead.

He's also in the process of tattooing his facial skin red. "He has loved comic books since he was a kid and always dreamed of being Red Skull, but never got around to doing it," a friend of his tells The Mirror.

Damon began his transformation after meeting Emilio Gonzalez, a former med student who specializes in extreme body modifications. "He's an excellent son, husband and father," says Gonzalez, "who has an extreme taste for body modification."

Emoji users have more sex than people who stick to just words, according to Match.com's Singles in America survey.

More specifically, 54 percent of emoji users reported having sex in 2014, compared to 31 percent of singles who didn't use them. And 64 percent of men and 46 percent of men who use the adorable icons regularly are getting laid at least monthly.

But they also want commitment: 62 percent of emoji users want to get married compared to 30 percent who avoid using emoji.

Another riveting finding from the study: The three most popular emoji that singles use are the winking face, the smiley face and the kissy face.

At the end of the movie "Office Space", the main character finally finds happiness leaving the terrible corporate world and becoming a construction worker. Should I have said SPOILER ALERT? The movie is 16 years old, guys.


And maybe they were on to something. A new study ranked different industries by how HAPPY their workers are . . . and people in construction are the happiest in the country.


The number one reason they gave for being happy was working with great people. Number two was being excited about their projects at work . . . and number three is a positive work environment.


It's a pretty broad study, but supposedly the five happiest industries are construction and facilities services . . . consumer products and services . . . technology . . . telecommunication, energy, and utilities . . . and healthcare, pharmaceuticals and biotech.


People in manufacturing were the most unhappy workers . . . government and nonprofit workers are second-most unhappy.

1. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady won a 2015 Chevy Colorado for his Super Bowl 49 MVP efforts . . . but he plans to give the truck to safety Malcolm Butler, the rookie who caught the game winning interception.

Brady said, quote, "I'd love to [give Malcolm the truck]. We're going to figure out how to make that happen." (Somewhere, Malcolm is probably saying: "Tom, it's easy. Have the title transferred, and drive it over to my place. Thanks.")

3. Speaking of Facebook, ZZ Top posted a "left shark" meme with the caption: Quote, "Every girl is crazy 'bout a SHARK dressed man." (Obviously, that's a reference to the ZZ Top song "Sharp Dressed Man".)

On Sunday, "The Detroit News Press" did a story on a 56-year-old guy named James Robertson, who walks 21 MILES round-trip to work every day . . . and has never missed a day.


His car broke down more than a decade ago . . . his factory job doesn't pay enough to buy a new one . . . and there's almost no bus service where he lives. So he leaves his house at 8:00 in the morning every day, to make his shift that starts at two.


Then he leaves work at 10:00 P.M., and doesn't get home until FOUR IN THE MORNING most nights. So on average, he only sleeps about two hours a night. But he can't afford to move closer, and can't get another job.


It looks like that won't be the case much longer though. Because after the article came out, a 19-year-old college student who'd never met James set up a page on GoFundMe.com, to raise $5,000 to buy him a car.


And in the first two days, people from all over the country donated almost 300 THOUSAND DOLLARS to help him out. (Check out the updated total here.)


He'll be able to bank it too, because a local car dealership has already offered to GIVE him a brand new car.

In parts of Hong Kong and China, Jennifer Lopez is known as "Lord of Butt". You're not seriously waiting for me to explain this one, are you?


Mariah Carey is "Cow Sister" . . . which is NOT a comment on her fuller figure. In Chinese, the slang phrase "cow's vagina" means "[effing] awesome" . . . so it's a compliment.


And Ariana Grande is known as "Little Cow" . . . because she's like a mini-Mariah.


Benedict Cumberbatch is known as "Curly Blessing" . . . because of his curly hair in "Sherlock".


Nicki Minaj is "Numbing-Spicy Chicken", after a Chinese dish so hot it can actually numb your tongue.


Adam Levine is "Flirty Adam" . . . another easy one.


Jennifer Lawrence is "Cousin" . . . which has something to do with Chinese people always wanting to show that they have powerful connections.

A Beaver Dam police officer says he's quite certain he's never responded to a call like the one he handled recently at a McDonald's restaurant.

Officer Rich Dahl responded to an anonymous complaint about a woman who brought a kangaroo into McDonald's. Dahl said Tuesday the woman had the baby kangaroo wrapped in a blanket and tucked in an infant car seat.

Dahl says when he confronted the woman she explained the kangaroo was a service animal to help her cope with emotional distress and she produced a letter from a doctor.

The officer says the woman was upset at first, but then agreed to leave the restaurant. Dahl says he doesn't know if a kangaroo would qualify as a service animal under the law, but he says he's glad he didn't have to find out.

Coca-Cola has a new beverage about to hit the market... It's called milk.

What's more, Coke's milk--called Fairlife--includes less sugar and more protein than most milks, and it's going to charge about double the price per unit for it.

"It's basically the premiumization of milk," Sandy Douglas, president of Coca-Cola North America, said at a conference in November, adding that it is the type of product that "rains money."

Maybe so, but first consumers will have to get comfortable with the notion that the tweaked nutritional stats don't mean the milk is "an abomination of nature," says one analyst.

After last night's Super Bowl, we ventured out into the Internet in search of some trivia and interesting facts on the game for all the sports junkies out there. Here's what we came up with:


1. Obviously, the most scrutinized play of the Super Bowl was Seattle's bold decision to throw and not run on 'Second and Goal' from the one-yard line in the last minute of the game. That's when Malcolm Butler intercepted Russell Wilson, which iced the game for the Patriots.


The Seahawks had rushed on SEVEN of NINE plays from the one-yard line this season prior to that play. And Marshawn Lynch had FIVE previous runs from the one-yard line this season, and had scored only one touchdown.


2. And Russell Wilson's interception was the first interception that was thrown from the one-yard-line by any quarterback this season.


3. Coming into the game, Wilson was 10-0 versus Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks. Obviously, that changed last night.


4. Tom Brady now has four Super Bowl wins, which is tied for the most of any quarterback. And he's in good company. The other two with four Super Bowl wins are: Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw.


5. Brady's three Super Bowl MVPs ties him with Montana for the most ever.


6. Tom Brady's four touchdown passes gave him 13 for his career in the Super Bowl . . . moving him past Joe Montana, who held the record with 11 touchdown passes in four Super Bowls.


7. It was also Bill Belichick's fourth Super Bowl win as a head coach, which ties him with Chuck Noll for the most of all time. Belichick improved his record to 4-2 in Super Bowls and joins Don Shula as the only other coach in NFL history to coach in six Super Bowls. Shula is 2-4, though.


8. The Patriots became the sixth team with at least four Super Bowl wins. The others are: Green Bay (4), Dallas (5), San Francisco (5), and Pittsburgh (6). They are tied with Pittsburgh and Dallas for most Super Bowl appearances, with eight.

On Friday in Philadelphia, Patrick Bertoletti of Chicago set a Wing Bowl record by consuming 444 chicken wings in 26 minutes to win this year's title.

But it was pro wrestler Mick "Mankind" Foley who burped the loudest.

Foley was disqualified from the event for stuffing uneaten chicken wings in a fanny pack to inflate his wing-count, an unsportsmanlike act that was quickly dubbed "Inflate Gate" on social media.

Foley said he cheated because he didn't want to puke. "I didn't want that to be my legacy," Foley told the AP. "So I stretched the rules. I thought people would appreciate that, right here in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania!"

Approximately 20,000 beer-swilling spectators took in the action at Wells Fargo Arena.

Well there's definitely no legal precedent for THIS situation.


Back in August of 2008, a high school student in British Columbia, Canada named Alissa Afonina was in the car with her mom and her brother, while her mom's boyfriend was driving.


It was wet outside, he lost control, and crashed into a ditch. The crash was pretty bad, although Alissa wasn't physically injured too badly . . . but she DID hit her head, and something happened to her brain.


Alissa went from being a great student to someone with no impulse control and no ability to focus. And beyond that . . . she transformed herself into a PROFESSIONAL DOMINATRIX.


Since the crash, her mom ended things with the boyfriend . . . the family SUED him . . . and he was just found negligent in the crash.


So Alissa got a $1.5 million judgment for the brain injury that turned her into a dominatrix . . . and her mom got almost $1 million in damages for her injuries.

Last week, we shared some of the more amusing "prop bets" you could make on various online sportsbooks. Here are some of the results:


One bet was whether talkative Seattle Seahawks running back MARSHAWN LYNCH would incite the wrath of the NFL by grabbing his crotch once again after scoring a touchdown. He did score . . . but did not grab his crotch.


Even though New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick was favored to wear a GRAY hoodie, if you bet on "BLUE" you cashed in. You also won if you bet on the Gatorade being BLUE. When the Patriots won, Belichick got a blue bath.


One of the more amusing bets was whether or not KATY PERRY would show cleavage during the halftime show. She did.


But since she didn't have her breasts actually pushed together, one online site is paying out on BOTH sides of the bet. Which is good news for the puritans who said she wouldn't, because yes-to-cleavage was the odds-on favorite.


A sports book called Bovada.LV served up a betting sheet that you could print out to play with people at your Super Bowl party. They were also kind enough to live Tweet their answers so you could simply drink and enjoy the game. Here are the results.

The Super Bowl commercials yesterday were probably overshadowed by the game, since it went down to the last few plays . . . and since most ads were released online last week. It's gotten bad, and it REALLY lessens their impact.


But some stood out. Here are 20 of the commercials and trends we noticed, roughly in the order they appeared.




1. Chevy freaked everyone out right away by making people think their reception was messed up. But it was just about how the Chevy Colorado comes with built-in WiFi. It annoyed a lot of people on social media, but you have to admit it got your attention.


2. Snickers was hard to top, as we predicted. That's the one where they made it look like DANNY TREJO from "Machete" and STEVE BUSCEMI were two of the daughters on "The Brady Bunch" . . . and acting out because they needed a Snickers.


It also made us think . . . THAT'S how you use a celebrity. There were a ton of celebrity cameos in ads this year, but not all of them worked. It worked here because they used unexpected faces in unexpected ways.


3. It sounds weird to say, but Carnival Cruise lines had a pretty effective ad early on. It was voiceover from an old speech by JFK, about how there's salt in our blood and technically human beings come from the sea. But it was actually pretty powerful.


At the same time, it seems like way too many companies went for the 'serious' angle this year. You know it's gotten bad when Carnival Cruise lines is using dead presidents. (More on that here.)


4. Skittles got some laughs early on with a town where people "settle it the usual way" when there's only one Skittle left . . . by ARM wrestling. So everyone had huge right arms . . . even little kids and dogs.


5. KIM KARDASHIAN did a fake, sentimental PSA for T-Mobile about saving your unused data . . . the one she teased on "Conan" last week. Even if you're sick of her, at least she can make fun of herself.


6. The Budweiser "Lost Puppy" commercial won "USA Today's" ad meter results. Probably because it was shamelessly manipulative. Not only did the puppy get lost, he almost got attacked by a WOLF . . . until his Clydesdale friends saved him.


7. MINDY KALING did a funny ad for Nationwide Insurance where she thought she was invisible, and tried to kiss MATT DAMON.


8. Coke scored with a message about making modern technology less about bullying, hating, and negativity . . . all because a guy spilled a Coke on a server somewhere. Kind of ironic, since last year everyone online HATED their multi-ethnic commercial.


9. Doritos proved again that they're reliable for ads that actually make you laugh. There was the guy who made sure no one wanted to sit next to him in the MIDDLE SEAT on a plane, unless it was a hot woman . . . but it turned out she had a baby.


10. Esurance had a couple funny commercials about how it's the right product for you . . . not someone SORTA like you. So they had BRYAN CRANSTON as Walter White from "Breaking Bad" playing your pharmacist.


And if you missed it, they ran an ad right BEFORE the game with the same idea . . . where LINDSAY LOHAN played a lousy mom.
