Veterinary students in Australia desperate for cash to pay their graduation ball next year have posed naked with animals for a fundraising calendar.
The trainee vets at James Cook University bear-ed all in the photo shoot, which featured horses, dogs, bison, baby guinea pigs, a macaw and a blue-tongued lizard.
Organisers Angela Davey and Sylvia Wood came upon the idea after working on placement with a vet from Massey University in New Zealand, which has a tradition of publishing Barely There nude calendars.
“We told the class how much money we could potentially make and I think that was when everyone realised that it was actually a serious fundraising venture and not a joke,” said Davey.
Wood revealed that the animal antics did not go unnoticed out in the real world as passers-by saw the students being photographed as nature intended.
“People kept tooting on their way past because we were only 200m from the road and I guess they thought it was hilarious to see around 30 people standing naked in a field with horses,” she said.
“Once everyone got over the ‘should I look, can I look, maybe I shouldn’t look’ stage, it was just lots of fun.”
The crash happened at 5:30 a.m. on Columbia Road between Meridian and Linder roads. Eighteen-year-old Tristan Myers was driving when his front-seat passenger, a 16-year-old boy, set Myers’ armpit hair on fire. The driver lost control of the Ford Bronco, rolling the vehicle.
Two girls in the backseat, ages 15 and 16, were thrown from the vehicle. Myers, his front-seat passenger, and a 17-year-old boy remained in the vehicle. None of the teens were wearing seatbelts, deputies say.
Three of the teenagers were taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Myers first said he had swerved to avoid an animal in the road, but the truth emerged after deputies talked to all the teens.
Myers, who deputies say was speeding and driving erratically before the crash, was cited for inattentive driving. The lighter-wielding passenger was ticketed for interfering with the driver’s safe operation of a vehicle.
Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it.
“I want to look silly and I want to be huge,” she told Australia’s Women’s Day. “They make people smile and that makes me happy, so that can’t be a bad thing.”
The 23-year-old says she was 17 when she had the first of her three breast enlargements, and has claimed she is “addicted to boob jobs.” She said she has gone up 18 bra sizes.
The Mirror calculated that her oversize implants weigh almost 12 pounds.
Dozens of Michigan hearse enthusiasts will show off their casket-carrying cars during a parade through Hell.
The procession Saturday is part of the 13th annual Hellfest celebration in the hamlet 45 miles west of Detroit. It follows an all-hearse car show.
The Hell-based car club called Just Hearse ‘N Around is hoping to reclaim a Guinness World Records mark it set in 2011 when 51 vehicles made the parade. A 107-strong hearse contingent in the Netherlands shattered that record a year later.
Just Hearse ‘N Around co-founder Frank Hendeen told the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus, of Howell, that some funeral homes will take part.
But the retired police officer says, “most won’t, because they think we’re a bunch of — well, we are weird people.”
A man celebrating his birthday at one of Las Vegas’s popular, booze-soaked hotel pool parties allegedly sexually assaulted another male partier who had passed out in a bathroom of the MGM Grand, according to investigators.
Prosecutors allege that Gustavo Banegas, 22, attacked the victim last month at Wet Republic, which the Strip hotel describes as an “alluring 54,500-square-foot venue” comprised of several pools, banquets, and “tricked-out Bungalows and Party Cabanas.”
On the day of the alleged assault, the Dutch DJ Tiesto performed at the adults-only Wet Republic, where crowds of young swimsuit-clad revelers can number in the thousands.
According to investigators, Banegas (seen above) found the victim passed out on a toilet. After moving the man to the floor, Banegas rubbed the victim’s genitals, performed oral sex on the man, and placed his penis in the victim’s anal opening. Like Banegas, who lives in Florida, the victim was a tourist visiting Las Vegas.
The August 17 attack was interrupted when a security guard entered the bathroom.
A criminal complaint charges Banegas with two counts of sexual assault, attempted sexual assault, and open or gross lewdness. The victim, the complaint notes, was “mentally or physically incapable of resisting or understanding the nature of Defendant’s conduct.”
Banegas was arrested at the MGM Grand and booked into the Clark County jail, where he remains incarcerated in lieu of $60,000 bail. He is scheduled for a September 23 preliminary hearing in Circuit Court.
Banegas’s rap sheet includes a November 2013 arrest for trespassing in Miami, though that misdemeanor count was not subsequently pursued by prosecutors.
