Grandma Rocking the Pole!
A 61-year-old grandmother has become massive hit in China– as the country’s oldest pole dancer! Yep, Sun Fengqin took up the risque hobby after seeking a new type of exercise when she got bored with Tai Chi. Now millions of viewers are watching the grandma-of-four grind through her gyrating routines on TV or online. “I can never say no to an audience because I love pole dancing and I love being on a stage,” said Sun at her home in Nanjing. However, she admits some friends and family have shunned her because of pole dancing’s association with China’s sex industry. She noted, “A friend I had known for 20 years told me I wasn’t welcome any more because I might corrupt her children.” Meanwhile, her totally cool husband Cui added, “I can’t say I am 100 per cent happy and I’d rather she did yoga, but I will always support her.” (Ananova)
Outsourcing Gets Personal!
It’s genuinely hard to decide if this is the smartest or stupidest man in America. An unnamed computer programmer got caught outsourcing his own job to a company in China for just 20% of his six-figure salary. It’s been going on for years and was only uncovered after someone at his company noticed their website was being accessed from China. It seems our friend physically FedExed his RSA security ID to China so the third-party contractor could login under his credentials during the workday. It would then appear that the employee was working an average nine-to-five work day. In fact what he was doing was just goofing off surfing sites such as YouTube, Reddit, eBay and Facebook, before sending his superiors a daily status report and going home. Ironically, investigators had the opportunity to read through his performance reviews and for the last several years in a row he received excellent remarks. But they fired him anyway. Wait a minute? Fired? But he got his work done yes? And got good reviews? He’s not a bad employee. Just smarter than his bosses. Make that man a manager! (Ananova)
Stripping: Good For Your Career?
If you don’t know, you don’t generally make big bucks as a newspaper journalist. Often young writers seek freelance work on the side to supplement their measly income. Sarah Tressler was just such a journalist who wrote for the Houston Chronicle by day, but was a secret stripper after dark often earning $2,000 a night. But that came to an end when the Houston Press exposed her secret identity and the Chronicle fired Tressler. But then her own story hit the newswires and now she just landed a new job at The San Antonio Express-News as a breaking news reporter! Editor Mike Leary said that Tressler is the newest member of the paper’s “Go Team,” which “covers breaking news, primarily for our Website.” (Huffington Post)
Tattoo Your Way To Jail
In Oregon, 30-year-old Matthew Abram Rader is facing several charges including third-degree rape after he tattooed his name near the private parts of a teenage girl! An affidavit filed in Oregon’s Benton County Court states that the victim, who has not been publicly identified, told police that Rader gave her three tattoos for her 15th birthday, including one of his name “near her vagina.” Police interpreted this to mean that Rader had engaged in a sexual relationship with the victim when she was 14 years old. In Oregon, sexual intercourse with a person under age 16 is considered third-degree rape. With the victim’s cooperation, police started a sting operation and during a Facebook exchange with an officer posing as the victim, Rader allegedly asked for nude photographs of the girl.

A most bizarre death is under investigation in Cantonment, Florida. The Florida Highway Patrol says 56-year-old Iris Fortner and 68-year-old James Campbell were backing into their driveway when Campbell got out of the passenger side of the vehicle to open the metal gates. Fortner reportedly opened the driver’s door to see where Campbell was standing, and that’s when Fortner’s large boxer bull dog jumped into the car and pressed the accelerator. Troopers say Fortner tried to stop the van before the vehicle backed into Campbell but to no avail. Campbell was struck and then became trapped under the van. He was pronounced dead at the scene by Escambia County paramedics. I swear officers! That’s exactly the way it happened! Honest! By the way, have you met my dog? We call him Cujo! (Local10.com)
But What Would Mr. LaPierre Say About This?
Two Montville, Ohio men aren’t exactly helping the NRA make their arguments. After 911 calls about rapid gunfire and bullets hitting homes police confronted two men at gunpoint in the back yard of a residence. The two men were Mark Bornino, 53, of Medina, and R. Daniel Volpone, 45, of Parma. Apparently the men had decided to try a little target practice with their GIANT ARSENAL of weapons. Police said target practice is allowed in Montville Township, and the men passed background checks. The weapons and ammunition that the men were shooting were seized and include:
Police said that further investigation revealed that the men had been consuming alcohol and were shooting at paper targets with no back stop about 500 yards from neighboring homes. The homes that were struck were both occupied, but no one was hurt. Both homes sustained damage, with one of the homes having two AK-47 bullet holes through the walls. After going through the wall, one of the rounds became lodged into a kitchen appliance at head level. Bornino and Volpone are now facing felony charges and are darn lucky they didn’t kill somebody.

Apparently Pat Robertson’s Foot Has Missed His Mouth
700 Club host Pat Robertson is at it again. Pat has said that “awful-looking” women are to blame for a romance-deficient marriages. Interesting to note that the conversation began as Pat’s response to a letter a 17-year-old boy wrote to Maxim magazine asking for advice on how to get his videogame-loving dad to pay more attention to his mom. Leaving aside the idea that Pat Robertson reads Maxim, Robertson said, “It may be your mom isn’t as sweet as you think she is. She may be kind of hard-nosed.” He then went on to say that “awful-looking” women can be to blame for certain marital problems explaining, “A woman came to a preacher that I know, and she was awful looking. I mean, her hair was all torn up and she was overweight and looked terrible, clothes bad and everything. And she said, ‘Oh, Reverend, what can I do? My husband has started to drink.’ And the preacher looked at her and said, ‘Madam, if I was married to you I’d start to drink too.’” Well take it on faith that Robertson’s wife of 58 years, Adelia “Dede,” does everything she can to stay hot looking for Pat.
