Parents Are Pissed A Doll Toys 'R Us Sells Has A Pecker

doll-with-surprise-pecker.jpg

Some parents are outraged after finding out the $25 'You & Me Mommy Change My Diaper Doll' that Toys R Us sells has a penis. Apparently the girl version has a vagina. But parents don't want their kids playing with anatomically correct dolls. Or at least feel the doll should come with some sort of a heads-up. WARNING: This doll baby contains a penis.

Some parents called the doll inappropriate and unnecessary for kids, while others joked it could be a unique way to conclude a "gender reveal" party. Some users on Facebook just wished the doll's box came with a warning label.


Writer Monica Beyer of SheKnows.com, however, doesn't see a problem. "How on earth is it inappropriate for a child to see a naked baby? What about a baby makes a penis or a vulva dirty or sexual?" Beyer writes. "Because that's what it sounds like when people say that it's wrong for little girls to see it. The truth is, when a child points out the body part that she doesn't have, all a parent is required to do is call it by its name."

Sexologist Dr. Logan Levkoff says banning the word penis is a parenting fail and if we don't have universal names for body parts, it may be hard for for children to tell their parents when these body parts hurt.

Heck yeah. My parents taught me early on what penises and vaginas were, and that's why I'm such a mature, well-adjusted adult today that doesn't joke about them online all day. I'm kidding, I still have no clue what penises are for. I do like to pretend mine is a gearshift though when I'm playing Gran Turismo to add another level of difficulty to the game. I guess you could say I prefer *slipping on cool-guy sunglasses* playing on hard mode.

Keep going for a shot of the baby pecker in question.

Car Hits Cyclist, Dude Manages To Land On His Feet

cyclist-lands-on-feet.jpg

Get down from there, bike -- you're not a plane!

WARNING: A VERY solid "OH F*** OFF!" from the cyclist right before he gets hit.

This is a video of a London cyclist who gets hit by a car, catches air, then slides down the hood of the car and lands on his feet. If I were that cyclist I would have had some pretty strong words for the driver afterwards. Probably, "I'm gonna f***ing kill you and eat your shitty heart!" I tried to watch the video frame-by-frame to see if the driver was texting or anything, but I couldn't make them out. Share the road, folks -- watch out for cyclists. I've actually been hit by a car when I was on my bike before, it was terrifying. I was six and my grandpa was backing out of the driveway.

Hit the jump for the video.

Some Mastermind: Wanted Idiot Taunts Police On Their Facebook, Gets Arrested Less Than 24-Hours Later

criminal-facebook-taunter-busted.jpg

Meet Roger Ireland. Of course you're probably going to have to meet him virtually through the picture above, unless you're in Anne Arundel County Jail. As part of their 'Wanted Wednesday' posts on Facebook (think throwback Thursday, but more criminal), the Anne Arundel County Police Department in Maryland posted a picture of Roger. So what did Roger do? What any badass would -- took to his Facebook to taunt the police and claim they'll never catch him. He was apprehended less than 24 hours later, earning him even less street credit than jaywalking.

"We figured we'd use our social media community to help us identify them and then some people might see themselves and turn themselves in,"


What the department didn't expect was what happened this past Wednesday, when Roger Ireland saw his face pop up on the screen.

Instead of keeping silent, he commented on his own picture.

His post taunted police, proclaiming they couldn't catch him.

"We sent it over to some of our investigators and our intelligence department said, hey you guys track him down," said Smith.

Police were able to locate Ireland right after conducting a traffic stop on a vehicle he was riding in, just 24 hours after he said he couldn't be caught.

Wow, what a criminal mastermind. I'm honestly not surprised he wasn't apprehended earlier for walking into the police station mistaking it was a movie theater. Haha, ya'll dressed pretty stupid for concession stand workers! Where the popcorns at?! Oh, oh no. Not again.

Thanks to Lindby, who has the distinct feeling this guy might be one of the very few people in the world who also keeps his MySpace profile up to date.

Don't Do That: Girl Sleeps With Samsung Galaxy S4 Under Pillow, It Catches Fire

cell-phone-bed-fire.jpg

Not gonna lie, I did think those were shit stains at first.

13-year old Ariel Tolfree of Texas says her Samsung Galaxy S4 cell phone allegedly "slipped under her pillow" while she was falling asleep one night and she woke up to it on fire. And that's why you never sleep with a phone under your pillow. Jesus, it's not a tooth. The phone ferry isn't going to come bring you a Galaxy S5 just because you put a 4 under your pillow. Right? They won't do that right? I'm only asking because I have an iPhone 2.

A spokesperson for Samsung says their products are safe, and pointed out that the battery inside the phone was a replacement unit and not an original Samsung part.


Nevertheless, the company does agree there is a need for consumer education when it comes to rechargeable batteries. That's exactly why they post a warning in their user guide, which specifically states covering one of their devices with bedding or other material could restrict airflow and cause a fire.

Tolfree and her dad, though, didn't read that warning.

"If anything, they should put a big warning on it, like a cigarette label, if that's the case," said Thomas.

In the meantime, the phone, the bedding, the mattress and pillow will all be replaced by Samsung.

Right, they should put a big warning on it like a cigarette label. Good call, dad! Or maybe just don't sleep with your cell phone in the bed. That's like forgetting a friend in the trunk of your car on the hottest day of the summer -- they're not going to survive. It wasn't even an original Samsung battery, I can't believe the company agreed to replace her phone and bedding. I only hope they sent her a twin sized sheet set for a queen sized bed.

Shotgun Silencer Takes The Boom Out Of The Boomstick

shotgun-silencer.jpg

This is a video demonstration of The SilencerCo's Salvo 12 shotgun suppressor. Apparently it reduces the sound of a shotgun blast to around 137 decibels, or the equivalent of "someone loudly clapping their hands in front of your ears". Which, for the record, will still get you punched in the f***ing face if it's my ears you're clapping in front of.

What An All-Star: Little Girl Somehow Performs A Loopty-Loop In Rotating Carnival Funhouse

little-girl-death-grip-loopty-loop.jpg

This is a portrait-mode video (come on, lady -- you've had that phone for years!) of a teensy little girl somehow managing to hold on to the rotating barrel at the exit of a carnival funhouse and perform a loopty loop. How the hell did she do that? Was she squeezing it with her legs? Regardless, if the ringleader catches wind of this I've got the feeling somebody has a bright future as this carnival's next strongwoman. Me? I'm going to get a pair of fake tits and become the bearded lady. I'll kiss you for a nickel!
