Woman “profoundly embarrassed” of urinating in Aldi supermarket aisle


A woman is said to be “profoundly embarrassed” of being caught urinating on the shop floor of a Llanelli supermarket.

9727969-largeAmanda Jayne Warner has pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly in a public place following the incident on February 20.

At 9pm that evening 40-year-old Warner entered a branch of Aldi on Swanfield Place. The shop’s security guard noticed Warner was speaking very loudly on the phone and swearing.

“She was doing her shopping but she was also approaching other shoppers and asking them to speak down the phone. She was clearly being a nuisance,” prosecutor Ellie Morgan told Llanelli Magistrates Court.

The security guard followed Warner into another aisle and witnessed her leaning over and urinating through her clothes onto the shop floor.

She then walked over to a cashier but was refused when she tried to buy alcohol because she appeared to be intoxicated.

As the rest of her items were scanned, Warner became verbally abusive so she was told to leave the store.

Her shouting continued outside the shop until police arrived. Officers said that she was clearly drunk and carried on swearing, despite being warned, resulting in her eventual arrest.

Mrs Morgan said: “The large wet patch on the front of her clothing matched the description given by staff.”

Defending Warner, Steve Lloyd said that she had been working through several issues and had been taking medication.

“She says she didn’t have a vast quantity to drink but alcohol with her medication isn’t a good combination,” he said.

“She is profoundly embarrassed but you will see that there are bizarre elements linked in with this.

“She apologises to you. She is very sad about her actions.”

Warner was fined £40 and ordered to pay court costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £20.

Chocolate Easter bunny costs $49K thanks to diamond eyes


It took a master chocolatier, cocoa from Tanzania and two solitaire diamonds to create what’s being billed as the world’s most extravagant chocolate Easter bunny, worth $49,000 — or, the price of a high-end car.

imageThe specs are impressive: The bunny statuette measures 38 cm (about a foot tall) and weighs in at 5 kg (11 lbs) — about the weight of an average cat — equal to 548,000 calories.

But what makes this particular edible animal over the top is its eyes, a pair of 1.07-carat solitaire diamonds valued at more than $37,320.

Commissioned by British luxury retail site VeryFirstTo.com, the chocolate bunny was carved by pastry chef Martin Chiffers, former Chef Décor of Harrods in London, and took two days to complete.

Diamonds were supplied by 77 Diamonds in London, which claims to possess the largest selection of diamonds in the world.

It’s the latest outrageous stunt from VeryFirstTo, which has made a name for itself launching extravagant, jaw-dropping products and packages that border on the ridiculous.

Last Christmas, for example, the online retailer created a holiday hamper filled with a 200-year-old cognac, caviar, truffles, foie gras, and foie gras with truffles worth $134,650, and a Valentine’s Day dinner package prepared by a Michelin-starred chef went for for $99,300.

Man Caught Watching Children, Fondling Himself In A McDonald’s


An Oklahoma City man is facing three counts of Lewd Acts to a Child after being caught fondling himself near a play area at a fast food restaurant on the south side of the metro over the weekend.

7245159_GAccording to a report, officers were called out to the McDonald’s restaurant located in the 4500 block of SE 29th St. around 5:30 p.m. on Saturday. Witnesses reported that a man was sitting in a booth near the play area, looking at a laptop computer and watching children play while he masturbated.

The witnesses told police that when the suspect, now identified as 36-year-old Casey Ferguson, saw a police car pull into the parking lot he quickly packed up his things and fled. The officers made a quick search in the vicinity of the McDonald’s when they located a man matching the suspect’s description.

When police made contact with Ferguson they noted that the zipper was down on his pants, he was not wearing any underwear and was carrying a laptop.

Several witnesses, some even young children and teenagers, also reported seeing Ferguson rubbing and squeezing his genitals through his pants as he watched children in the play area.

Ferguson was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail for the counts of Lewd Acts to a Child. His bond was set at $45,000.

“Norway man glued own beard to victim’s scalp”

According to prosecutor Harald Bilberg, the man, who is in his 40s, is claiming that the recipient of the home-made hairpiece had consented to the treatment.
“He was bald, so the accused claims that they had agreed to create a toupée for the aggrieved party,” Bilberg told the Bergens Tidende newspaper. “I must admit that I have never encountered such a case in my career.”
The man is also being tried for a series of other petty crimes, including burglaries and thefts, which took place in the northern districts of Hordaland county.
“We are not talking about serious crimes, but it’s more of a nuisance. These incidents happened a long way out in the police district, and we therefore believe it is important that those who live there are protected,” Bilberg said.
The man has already been convicted seven times and fined 13 times.
He was arrested once again on Friday after breaking the restraining order imposed to protect the recipient of the home-made toupée.

You can buy a hyper-realistic human foreskin sculpture for $1,000


An artist has created a hyper-realistic adult human foreskin sculpture in order to raise awareness about the ‘true cost’ of male circumcision.

HUFO, which stands for HUman FOreskin, has been created by Vincenzo Aiello, an Italian artist and founder of Foregen, an organisation that plans to use stem cell technology to “regrow” foreskins lost through circumcision.

Aiello is an ‘intactivist’ – a person who believes that circumcision is an unnecessary mutilation that diminishes sexual pleasure later in life.

He is creating the startling artwork to help spread his message across the world.

Aiello studied circumcision surgeries for months in order to create the creepy silicone sculpture – a soft, fleshy object sandwiched between two pieces of glass.

Anyone can buy the sculpture for $1,000 (£671) through Kickstarter. The funds will go towards the artwork, but will also support an educational campaign.


The sculpture comes sandwiched between two pieces of glass

“HUFO shows in no uncertain terms what is lost when parents decide to perform an elective surgery on their newborn son. Circumcision has become so commonplace in the US that parents often forget that circumcision is a surgery,” says Aiello on the Kickstarter page for the sculpture.

“Every other surgery in Western medicine requires both compelling and urgent medical reasons to perform without consent. Unfortunately there is not a single one.”


The Kickstarter page selling the sculpture bizarrely compares the foreskin to an iPhone 5s

Aiello says that the human foreskin – which he bizarrely compares to the size of an iPhone 5s – contains more than half of all of the sensory tissue on the penis and that its contributions to sexual pleasure are “unique and necessary”.

“American men have been deceived for decades regarding the true nature of their bodies,” he says.

If you don’t have a spare $1,000 (£671) for a foreskin sculpture, you can pledge $50 for a T-shirt with the foreskin printed on it or $10 for a print of the artwork.

Iowa politician caught reading ‘Sex After Sixty’ book during House debate


Maybe he should buy an e-reader?

A bored lawmaker was busted reading a book called “Sex After Sixty” during an important Iowa House debate, reports the Des Moines Register.

20201407Republican state Rep. Ross Paustian was supposed to have been having his say over the collective bargaining rights for teachers.

But instead, the 59-year-old became engrossed in the self-help manual by Robert Butler and Myrna Lewis.

He faced a barrage of abuse after Des Moines Register reporter Brianne Pfannenstiel posted the photo on Twitter on Wednesday, reports ABC News.

But he claimed that the book wasn’t even his, and had just been passed over to him by fellow Republican Rep. Robert Bacon.

Bacon recently turned 60 and had been given the tome as a gift gag, he added.

Paustian also claimed that he was “totally engaged in what was going on the floor.”

“I knew what was going on. I knew how we were going to vote on amendments. So it wasn’t like I wasn’t paying attention to what was going on,”he told KCRG.

“If any of my constituents were offended, I apologize. I certainly wasn’t trying to offend anybody. I’m doing my job here for my constituents,” he added.
