Man shoots at armadillo, bullet hits mother-in-law


Authorities say a woman was accidentally shot by her son-in-law while he was trying to shoot an armadillo.

7443405_GThe shooting happened on Sunday on Gosa Road.

Lee County Sheriff’s deputies said 54-year-old Larry McElroy was outside when he fired his 9 mm pistol at the armadillo. The bullet killed the animal, but also ricocheted off of it, hit a fence, went through the back door of his mother-in-law’s mobile home, through a recliner she was sitting in, and into her back.

According to a report, McElroy was about 100 yards away from the home at the time.

McElroy’s mother-in-law, 74-year-old Carol Johnson was taken to the hospital, but was expected to be okay.

Chinese Sex Ed Now Relying On Giant Inflatable White Woman


Children in the Chinese city of Nanjing have a novel new way to learn about sex: By climbing inside a gigantic inflatable white woman.



The enormous doll is nicknamed Badi, and if this big, beautiful woman stood up she would be almost 100 feet tall. Children who enter through one of Badi’s feet are treated to several illustrations that inform children about the natures of human reproduction, as well as other bodily functions.

The doll isn’t all about sex, though. Kids can also enjoy a slide (created through a bend in Badi’s left leg), a climbing area, and a ball pit placed in her chest cavity (incidentally, approximately where her ovaries would be).

Woman who shushed talkative teens at ‘Furious 7’ screening beaten outside mall theater


That shush caused quite a stir.

blackeye12n-4-webA Pennsylvania mother says she got brutalized by three teen girls after shushing them at a screening of “Furious 7,” WNEP reported.

Cindy Santamaria-Williams was left with a broken eye socket, black eye and bruises all over her body after the alleged “Furious” fury.

She and her sister-in-law went to see the hit film on Easter Sunday at a Stroud Township mall, and got bothered by a group of yammering girls sitting behind them, she said.

“They were very loud, rowdy. They were cursing a lot,” Santamaria-Williams, a Poconos resident, told WNEP.

She turned around and told them to pipe down. She also complained to management after the film.

While walking to her car, she ran into the chatty gals again — but now they had three more girls and two teen boys with them, she said.

Then the beating began.

The teens jumped on Santamaria, threw her to the ground and punched her, and also injured her sister-in-law, she said.

Police released surveillance footage of the suspect and have reportedly identified two girls so far, but no arrests have been made, WPVI reported.

“When you go to the movies, you don’t need to be at risk to have your family endangered. And we’re talking about even Easter Sunday,” Stroud Area Regional Police Chief William Parrish told WNEP.

Santamari-Williams said she believes someone was filming the attack.

61-year-old follows her dreams to become a PORN star


porn(1)1Dressed in a kimono and kneeling silently on a tatami mat floor, 61-year-old Yasue Tomita looks as if she might be about to perform a Japanese tea ceremony – instead she’s debuting as a porn actress.

Fluttering her eyelashes demurely as the cameras prepare to roll, Tomita is proof that in Japan’s greying society you’re never too old to chase your dreams, however racy or unorthodox.

She has also become part of a flourishing niche market in Japan: “silver porn” – stretching the limits of eroticism among the elderly and overturning social norms in a country where people are expected to grow old gracefully.

Love, too, is not confined to the young, say Japan’s growing army of pensioners exploring their desires in more conventional ways, with dating agencies for the elderly reporting increasingly brisk business.


Tomita confessed to being “a bit rusty” but made no apologies for her rambunctious lust for life, or her decision to put aside her knitting and crochet and launch into a career making X-rated movies.

“I like my handicrafts but I wanted to try my hand at this, while my body still works,” she told AFP before filming began.

“I do like sex, and this is my last chance before I get too old. I’m very nervous. I wonder if I should really do it, especially in front of so many people, but everyone should follow their dream.

“I just hope I can keep up,” added Tomita, who used to work in a factory manufacturing car parts and registered for an agency in Japan’s booming “adult video” (AV) industry with her daughter.

porn(2)2In ageing Japan, around 32 million people – a quarter of the population – are 65 or over. Thanks to a low birthrate and growing longevity, that proportion is expected to rise to 40 per cent by 2060.

With statistics like that, it’s no surprise that geronto-porn is big business.

Adult movies rake in about $20 billion a year, and those featuring unashamedly wrinkly men and women account for between 20 and 30 per cent of that market, industry insiders say. Sales have rocketed over the past decade as more of Japan’s perky seniors celebrate their mojo.

Though not for the faint-hearted, the genre took off thanks largely to now-80-year-old Shigeo Tokuda, the twinkle-toed king of granddad porn, who has peeled off for hundreds of hardcore flicks with titles such as “Forbidden Elderly Care” and “Manic Training of Lolitas.” Pornography became widely available in Japan in the 1900s, with seventeenth century Edo-era woodblock erotic prints being many people’s first introduction to the genre.


Attitudes towards sex are less prudish than in other parts of the world and fun-loving fertility festivals, where giant wooden phalluses are joyfully carried around towns, take place annually in parts of Japan.

“Everyone has different sexual tastes or fetishes,” said director Fumiaki Kimura. “Elderly porn has become very popular over the past 10 years or so. Older couples watch together because they can feel a connection, a sense of closeness or familiarity, being the same age.

“It’s like a forbidden pleasure,” he added. “Young people watch it because they’re fed up with the regular stuff – whatever turns you on. You do hear about actors taking Viagra, but that can be dangerous for the older guys.” Tokuda, who beds actresses young enough to be his granddaughter, also co-starred with Fujiko Ito, just two years his junior, the pair frolicking in hot springs or on tatamis with Ito in a kimono.

Natsuko Kayama, 44, a porn star with 25 years’ experience in the industry, told AFP she wanted to outlast the oldest swingers in town.

“I’d love to be the oldest AV actress,” she laughed. “I want to break the record if I can – if I last that long.” – Asiaone

Cabbie Ordered to Pay Lesbian Couple $10K for Telling Them to Stop Kissing


A taxi driver must pay a lesbian couple $10,000 for telling them to either stop smooching in the backseat of his cab or kiss their ride goodbye, a city administrative judge ruled last month.

largerYellow cab hack Mohammed Dahbi was accused of discriminating against the couple over their sexual orientation by ordering them to “keep that [behavior] for the bedroom or get out of the cab.” Dahbi also gave the passengers, Christy Spitzer and Kassie Thornton, some lip, calling them “b—–s,” “c—s” and “whores” when they got out of the cab without paying, according to Judge John Spooner’s decision.

Spooner, who oversaw Dahbi’s trial at the city’s Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings, also ordered him to attend anti-discrimination training and to pay a $5,000 civil penalty to the city. The city’s Commission on Human Rights, which brought the complaint against Dahbi on behalf of Spitzer and Thornton, still must approve Spooner’s decision.

“We felt that what happened to us was wrong and he needed to take responsibility for his actions,” Spitzer, a TV executive, told DNAinfo New York on Friday.

The incident occurred on Sept. 18, 2011, after Spitzer and her dog climbed into Dahbi’s cab at Columbus Circle and drove south to pick up Thornton in Chelsea. When they arrived in Chelsea, Thornton, who had been traveling, put her luggage in the taxi’s trunk, and Dahbi began driving them to Thornton’s home in Sunset Park.

The women testified at the trial that, at West 15th Street in the Meatpacking District, the cabbie told them to stop kissing and “save that behavior for the bedroom.”

Dahbi claimed during the hearing that he couldn’t keep his eyes on the road because Spitzer and Thornton were kissing “heavily” and “touching all over each other.” Dahbi told the judge that he found their behavior “distracting” and feared it would make him have an accident.

Spitzer and Thornton both testified at the trial that they had just kissed each other with a “peck on the lips.”

Spitzer told DNAinfo that she was certain it was only a light smooch because she had just had massive dental work done.

“That’s why I’m so aware of what my behavior was in the taxi,” she said.

After Dahbi gave his ultimatum, Thornton told him that he was discriminating against them because they were gay, according to the decision.

“Don’t make me out to be an a–hole,” Dahbi responded to her, the decision says.

Thornton told the judge that after that comment she didn’t feel comfortable, so she got out of the cab, grabbed her luggage and left. Spitzer followed shortly after with her dog, according to the decision.

When the women refused to pay him the fare to that point, he hurled expletives at them and sped away.

Dahbi, a married father of four who has been a cabbie for the past 17 years, said at his trial that he was not discriminating against the women because they were gay.

He also told the judge that for the last few weeks he had been volunteering at a food pantry for a charity called Metropolitan Community Church, which serves many gay homeless individuals.

Dahbi’s lawyer, Ali Najmi, told DNAinfo New York his client never once said anything about Spitzer and Thornton’s sexuality.

“Mr. Dahbi has a standard of decency that he asks all riders in his cab to follow,” Najmi said. “He has asked straight couples to stop engaging in similar behavior. It can be very distracting for a driver if people are getting hot and heavy in the taxi.”

However, the judge disagreed.

Porche Wright Accused Of Setting Her 7-Year-Old Daughter On Fire


Porche-WrightPolice have arrested 27-year-old Porche Wright after they say she doused her 7-year-old daughter with a flammable liquid then set her on fire.

Police were called to Wright’s home on a report of child abuse after a friend of Wright’s came over and discovered the suspect’s daughter covered in serious burns.

Paramedics rushed the girl to the hospital suffering from severe wounds. She is expected to survive and remains under treatment at Shriner’s Children’s Hospital.

Wright was arrested and booked into the Sacramento County Jail on charges of felony child abuse and attempted murder charges. She’s being held without bail.

This isn’t Wright’s first run-in with the law, having previously been charged with prostitution, domestic violence and disorderly conduct.

One neighbor said that Wright “put gas on her and put a match on her,” while another described some of the young girl’s injuries.

“She was burned so bad the skin was peeling off her face and everything … it was really, really severe,”  said neighbor Frank Taylor.

Neighbors also said they didn’t feel Wright was a good mother as she was often seen outside verbally abusing her kids. Wright’s mother says her daughter is not the type of person to douse a child with gasoline and set them on fire.

“She’s battling with depression and you know many things that are going on in her life,” she said.

Utah Man Returns 75-Pound Bag Of Cash Found On Highway


A Utah man got a surprise when he stopped to pull a large orange bag off the highway, fearing that it would become a traffic hazard.

n-DAN-KENNEDY-BAG-OF-CASH-largeThe Deseret News reports the 75-pound bag tumbled out of a truck driving in front of Dan Kennedy on Interstate 80 on Tuesday. When he looked inside, he found stacks of cash.

“I thought it was going to be light. I reached down to grab it, and I couldn’t move it,” Kennedy said.

Approximately 4 feet tall and 2 feet wide, the sack was filled with smaller bags packed with currency including $50 and $100 bills. Kennedy estimated each of the small bags contained $22,000.

It was unclear Thursday how much money the entire bag contained.

Kennedy tried but failed to chase down the Brink’s armored truck that had lost the bag. He then drove the money to his work parking lot and called the police.

The three Utah Highway Patrol troopers were “stunned” at the bag of money, Kennedy said.

“Never in all my years have I heard of a bag of money bouncing out of the back of an armored truck,” said trooper Brady Zaugg. “That’s something that happens in the spy movies.”

Kennedy said it never occurred to him to do anything other than turn in the money.

“He hadn’t disturbed it at all, so he obviously did the right thing for the right reason,” said Zaugg, who said Kennedy reported his find to the police immediately.

Brink’s employees told police they drove over a bad bump on a highway off-ramp but didn’t notice the back latch opening or the bag falling out.

Kennedy said he hasn’t heard anything about a reward for his good deed, but he was still excited by the unusual discovery.

“I was just jazzed all day long,” he said.
