*Whose with me on this: Why in the world would a sista who wears her hair natural even go to a hair salon and try to get her hair done by a white hairstylist? Bianca Dawkins apparently had her reasons for stepping into the white-owned, Minnesota-based, Denny Kemp Salon and Spa, but from what she tells City Pages, and posts on social media, the result of the experience, though not surprising to this writer, was not to her liking.
As is now the norm, Dawkins decided to post her experience on Facebook, noting when she attempted to get her naturally curly hair straightened, a white hair stylist “flipped out. He said he didn’t have the time to do my hair and that my hair was like an animal he couldn’t tackle.”
*Remember your mother telling you to make sure you have clean underwear on before you leave the house? (Don’t front. I’m not the only one whose mamma had to tell them that!) Well, mom’s advice was good but a tad incomplete.
Let me add to it: make sure you leave your chastity belt at home.
*Lets face it, in order to get paid any attention in today’s world, you’ve got to do something pretty extraordinary. And I’d say dangling an 18-karat gold nugget from McDonald’s in your face would probably get your attention.
I’ll take that as a yes.
Let me attempt to explain.
As contests go, McDonald’s has designed one that involves a gold nugget, a masked man in a black top hat, yellow suit, and red bow-tie named Kaito Nuggets — aka Phantom Thief Nuggets.
Sharon Heinrich and Helen Salter were riding along a scenic trail in Southern Australian when they stopped to look at a beautiful kangaroo. Before they could grab their iPhones and snap a pic, the marsupial jumped onto Heinrich’s torso and bounced off of it onto Salter’s back, knocking them both off of their bikes. The beast then bounced away.
“I saw him and thought ‘Oh, isn’t he cute’ — then he was on top of me,” Heinrich said.
*This chick goes straight into my “Bat Shit Crazy” file.
25-year-old Pixee Fox (and if THAT’s not a stripper name, I don’t know what is), has undergone 15 total surgeries, in her quest to look like Jessica Rabbit or a Disney princess — and she’s not done, yet.
“I’ve always been inspired by cartoons and Disney movies — all the curves and tiny waists,” Fox said.
What Fox seems to have missed is the fact that the “curves and tiny waists” she covets are drawings on a page — NOT REAL PEOPLE.
She HAS managed to achieve a 14 inch waist. Yes, she had ribs removed — six of them, in fact. She’s had surgeries on her eyelids, her brow, her butt, her cheeks, her lips, and she’s endured a fat-melting procedure to help her further trim what was left of her original body.
The picture up top shows you what Fox looks like now: the bastard child of Dolly Parton and Michael Jackson.
Just in case you’re curious, here’s how she looked before the surgeries: Continue reading →
*I love my two dogs. Shepherd mix and a pit, rescue mutts. LOVE ‘em. I joked just this morning that I wish inter-species marriage was legal. But this story is taking attachment to an animal to a whole new level.
Paramedics in Boca Raton, Florida rushed a 23-year-old beachgoer to the hospital after she’d been bit on the arm by a two-foot-long nurse shark.
*My husband is terrified of clowns. Phobic, in fact. His “condition” even has a term: coulrophobia.
I put “condition” in quotation marks because I’ve never really understood it. I LOVE clowns. Always have. I religiously watched Bozo and Oopsy the Clowns on TV growing up in Detroit. I spent my childhood hoping a clown would show up at one of my birthday parties. Never happened.
ANYWAY, with a husband who screams like a bitch whenever a clown pops up on TV, avoids McDonalds like the plague, and wouldn’t stream the movie It to save his life, I’m always looking for warm and fuzzy clown stories to help him feel better about them.
