  • Waste? Women Spend 17 Years of Their Lives Doing THIS...

    Posted by Average Joe

    A new study (in the UK) found that 90 per cent of women have been on some form of diet in their lifetime, and those women spend 17 years of their life dieting.

    Of these loyal dieters, the average woman loses her body weight over nine times during her life time.

    The study also found that the average woman diets twice a year, losing 11 pounds each time.

    The top reasons for the diets are health reasons, having getting rid of a muffin top, and wanting to look good in a bikini.

    However, a general love of food and lack of willpower keeps would-be dieters from achieving their dream body.

    I speak for all men, as I have been programmed to say, "You look fine".  "No, you don't look fat".  "Have you lost weight?"

  • (WARNING!) Don't Look If You Have a Weak Stomach.

    Posted by Average Joe

    A customer ordered a chicken burger from a KFC (in Ontario, Canada) and it was served raw.

    The man took a first bite, but he was so distracted by a conversation that he did not notice that the chicken was severely undercooked until he went in for a second bite.

    By the way, undercooked chicken carries a high risk of salmonella contamination that can cause diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps.

    KFC did no comment.

    I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

  • What's Wrong With This Picture?

    Posted by Average Joe

    A photograph seemingly shows a Secret Service agent urinating in full view of Barack Obama while the President was speaking to supporters gathered in Cincinnati's Eden Park today.

    The Secret Service confirmed that the man was their employee-- but said he was not urinating.

    The agency claimed the agent was simply following protocol and was facing away from the President to look out for any threats that may be headed his way.

    Preeeeeeety hard to tell!

  • (Shocking?) More women do this than men...

    Posted by Average Joe

    A survey by Consumer Reports found that most men and women have similar attitudes about their pets-- and women are much more likely to sleep with their dog or cat.

    When it came to men and women who owned a cat or dog, or both, 70 percent of women slept with their pet compared with 57 percent of men.

    Women were also more likely to sign birthday or holiday cards with a pet's name or picture, and give holiday gifts to Fido and Fluffy.

    About one-third of both men and women said they put pictures of their pet on social media sites like Facebook, but only 2 percent of either men or women created a Facebook page or other social media site in their pet's name.

    An equal number of men and women said, "Money is no object" when asked to pick an amount they would spend if a pet needed lifesaving treatment. When asked the most they had ever spent on their pet for a veterinary procedure, the average was $609.

    The average most would spend to save their pet's life: $1,824 for dog owners; $1,309 for cat owners.

  • LOOK! Kate Middleton Topless!

    Posted by Average Joe

    We kinda' knew this was gonna' happen eventually?

    A French magazine is planning to publish topless photos of Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge... weeks after Prince Harry was photographed naked in Las Vegas.

    Closer mag claims to have snaps of Kate taken by paparazzi while she and William were 'on holiday' in France last week.

    A teaser was posted on the magazine's website last night reading "World Exclusive; Kate and William in Provence: Oh My God!"

    The site also published a pixelated version on the cover, which appears to show the Duchess in a bikini, apparently about to remove her top.

    The magazine's editor said Harry would feel "less alone" when the issue hit the stands this morning.

    She said the images show Kate "fully topless" and some show her nipples clearly.

  • (Bummer) Kids And THIS Make Your Boobs Sag

    Posted by Average Joe

    Your life style may play a role in whether or not your breasts stay perky. 

    Researchers studied the breasts of 161 pairs of identical twins and found that sagging boobs is one of the effects of drinking alcohol.

    The study also found that it's not just alcohol that affects your breasts. Smoking cigarettes has been shown to make them less perky, as well as overeating.

    Researchers also noted that larger breasts were shown to sag earlier and more often than smaller ones.

     

    There are new ways of fixing the problem besides surgery.  The study suggested that hormone replacement therapy increases cancer risks, but it can also help women keep their boobs shapely and in place.

    So the single guys might be looking at the ladies at the bar different now?

  • Best "Zingers" From The X Factor Premiere

    Posted by Average Joe

    "The X Factor"'s second season kicked off last night, showcasing new judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato. The pop duo join returning judges Simon Cowell and LA Reid.
     
    Auditions got underway in Austin, Texas. The show opened strong with 21-year-old Paige Thomas, who wowed the judges with her powerhouse voice, rock star ensemble and 3-year-old daughter.

    New to this year's format is a behind-the-scenes storyline, which aims to showcase the so-called "bitchiness," according to Cowell, that seems to go on backstage. Audiences not only see the judges banter back and forth between takes, but they also witness 22-year-old contestant Kaci Newton make faces and snide comments about her competition from behind the curtain. 

    13-year-old Reed Dennings barely scraped through to the next round on charm. 
     

    Best Zingers:

    "You were like a mouse trying to be an elephant" – Simon Cowell

    "That's why you use auto-tune and I don't" – contestant Shawn Amernta to Demi Lovato

    "I wanna know who let you onstage. I'm uncomfortable with you even staring at me" – Britney Spears

    "I felt like I was listening to Alvin and the Chipmunks" – Britney Spears

    "You sang like a dog trying to lay an egg" – Simon Cowell

    "Are you drunk?" – Demi Lovato

    "Have you ever watched yourself on stage? You turn into a raving lunatic" – Simon Cowell

    "There used to be boybands years ago, there's five of them, and there's always one that doesn't sing. That's you." – Simon Cowell

    "Do you like animals? If I were you, I'd go out and buy a puppy and make this a happy day for yourself because the singing was awful" – Simon Cowell

  • (Why Aren't There More of These?) An All Woman Tire Shop

    Posted by Average Joe

    There's a tire shop in San Antonio, TX where all the workers are females.

    They use pink jacks and polka-dotted tools.

    The work is dirty and difficult, and the women love it.

    The woman who started it had learned about cars from her brother and wanted to open her own tire shop.

    She had seen other shops fail and decided to do an all female staff. They recruited people on Facebook and put up ads, and lots of women applied.

    The clients are both sexes, and most people think it's cool…but there are still some folks who make comments about women not being able to do a man's job.

    SWEET!
