A 12-year old girl in North Carolina has been introduced to the wonderful world of male chauvinism a little earlier than her parents expected, after she received some candy hearts. Sounds pretty harmless, but one of the hearts had a surprisingly inappropriate message – “Nice t*ts.” And to clarify, that’s not a reference to taters. The owner of the store that sold the offensive heart in question said that he hasn’t received any other complaints, mainly because the rest of the women who received the candy hearts are old enough to be flattered.
Some people, though, appreciate the mature tones, which is why an adult sex shop in Alabama is offering a special this week – sex toys for guns. That’s right, bring in your unwanted pistols, assault rifles and bazookas to Pleasures One Stop Sex Shop in Huntsville and you’ll receive your choice of select sex novelty items. The guns will be refurbished and resold, with the proceeds benefiting victims of violent gun assaults. Wait, what?
For the lovers who enjoy much simpler Valentine’s Day specials, T-Mobile and Khloe Kardashian are teaming up to offer people free phones on Friday and Saturday this week, when they sign up for a new two-year contract. Existing customers can also take advantage of the love by receiving a free phone when they sign up for a new line on their current plans. People who pass on the deal, though, will be forced to watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians for the rest of their lives.
