Nude calendar protests potholes
Residents of a small Canadian town have taken an unusual approach
to protesting the state of their roads: they’ve released a
nude calendar. The 2007 Highway 32 Pothole Calendar features local
men and women baring all next to the significantly large holes in
their roads, including one man naked in a canoe next to a pothole,
and another planting potatoes in one. The Canadian Minister for
Roads said it was a creative approach “but I don't think a
calendar is going to rebuild a road. I think recommendation from
my department in terms of priority will probably be a fairer gauge.”

Bigger penises by 3000

penises and women will have firmer breasts in the year 3000. Curry
works for Darwin@LSE, a think-tank that focuses on evolutionary
theory. He made his predictions for a television show. He believes
that humans will hit their evolutionary peak in 3000, with sexual
selection creating a more beautiful, delicate version of humanity.

will have firmer breasts and hairless skin.

A Serbian man needed surgery after an intimate encounter with a
hedgehog. The man had been instructed by a witchdoctor to have sex
with a hedgehog as a cure for premature ejaculation. Doctors had
to surgically remove several spines from his penis. A hospital spokesman
said: “The animal was apparently unhurt and the patient came
off much worse from the encounter. We have managed to repair the
damage to his penis.”

Man with two penises has
A 24 year old Indian man named Sanjay has made headlines by booking
in to have his extra penis removed. The man has an extremely rare
case of diphallus, the scientific name for two dicks. Often the

the jackpot because both organs function perfectly normally. Sanjay
has lived with the condition all his life, but has decided to have
the spare cock removed due to his impending marriage.

Men dominate Britain’s
A public masturbation event, held for charity and filmed by Britain’s
Channel 4 for a documentary, attracted mostly male participants.
Around thirty men, including gays, transvestites and artist’s
models, squashed into a small room to pleasure themselves. Aside
from raising money for AIDS charity the Terence Higgins Trust, many
participants said they were eager to break the taboos surrounding
masturbation and wanted to encourage it as a legitimate form of
sexual expression. A lone protestor stood outside holding placards.
“Doesn't anybody draw a line anymore? I think it is immoral,”

Garage door triggers erection
A British man says he’s too embarrassed to go outside because
his neighbour’s garage door remote control gives him an erection.
The man had a penile implant installed in Turkey to assist with
impotence. The remote involuntarily triggers the implant, resulting
in the man developing an erection whenever the neighbour drives
up in his 4 wheel drive. The man furthered his embarrassment by
going on national radio and discussing his problem. The radio host
suggested he see a doctor.

Man sends bomb to penis
A 25 year old Pennsylvania man has pleaded guilty to sending a bomb
to a Chicago surgeon in revenge for his botched penis surgery. Brett
Steidler had paid the doctor $8,000 for a penis enlargement. The
procedure had resulted in complications which Steidler was "extremely
unhappy" about. He constructed a home-made device from gunpowder
- the bomb qualifies as a "weapon of mass destruction"
- and sent it through the mail. The man's lawyer said he suffered
from bipolar disorder and had gone "beserk".

Orgasmic chocolate on
Scientists are looking at ways to increase
the levels of phenyl ethylalamine in chocolate bars. The brain chemical
is released during sex and creates sensations similar to orgasm.
Chocolate already contains around 600 mg of the chemical, which
may explain why some people develop cravings for it. If they succeed
in this endeavour it could make chocolate as good as, if not better
than, sex, someone women have known for quite some time.

Rasputin's penis in sex
Russia has opened a new sex museum, with the prime exhibit being
Rasputin's 12 inch pickled penis. Rasputin was murdered by Russian
aristocrats because it was believed his cult-like sexual influence
over the Czaress was too great, however it appears that his penis
was preserved by those who held him in high esteem. The curator
was particularly proud of the member saying: "Having this exhibit,
we can stop envying America, where Napoleon Bonaparte's penis is
now kept. Napoleon's penis is but a small pod - it cannot stand
comparison to our organ of 30 centimetres."

Happy penis song is not
The Canadian Broadcast Standards Council has ruled that a song about
a large penis is not obscene. Calgary's CJAY-FM had played a song
called "Enormous Penis" by Da Vinci's Notebook, which
included such witty lines as "I gotta sing and dance when I
glance in my pants." One irate listener had made a complaint
saying they were offended. The council said that "The discussion
of penis size is not in and of itself sufficiently unequivocally
a sexual matter that it can be said to be in breach of the code."
The radio station said it's target audience was primarily young
men who would enjoy such a song.
