Chinese father hires in-game ‘hitmen’ to ‘kill’ his son there, thus deterring him from playing:

Sick and tired of his son playing video games and not listening to him, a father in China decided to take matters into his own hands… well, sort of.

Is that Thrush header muffler a phallic symbol? (Yes.) Is that the Grim Reapress? (I don’t know.) And is the Donny Osmond doppelgänger wearing a flame-retardant drag racing suit or some terrible ’70s outfit? (I don’t know.)

She’s holding a phallic symbol, two oranges, and a carton of white fluid. Any questions?

It’s a Dicknic!

Take a good look at the ad. The foreground woman has one penis-y bottle in her hands while being force-fed a dog. Background woman is showing Chip how much of his dog she can fit in her maw at once. I don’t know about the sexual orientation of the fifth-wheel dude, but he’s making damn sure we notice the bananas. Then, there are the extra dogs, the knives, the shirt stripes — even the pattern on the basket looks like erect penises.

Airbrushing to SUBTRACT weight is bad enough, but THIS?!?

This is 20-year-old supermodel Karlie Kloss. Those were her ribs, before the October issue of international fashion magazine Numéro Photoshopped them out.

According to Celebuzz, this is not the first time Kloss’ thin frame has caused controversy. Last December, Vogue Italia had to remove photos of the model from their site after people copied them onto their pro-anorexia websites. The original photo for Numéro, taken by Greg Kadel, shows Kloss’ jutting ribs, sternum, and collar bones.
