Playboy Urged to Withdraw Video

Playboy urged to withdraw video

THE attempts of "Playboy" publisher Hugh Hefner to cash in on the benefits of naked yoga outraged Hindu leaders, who say that the porn king had exposed the practice for "mercantile greed." For centuries, India’s Hindu sects espoused the benefits of nudity, with holy men trekking for miles across the subcontinent wearing little more than a smile as they strive to uncover their true divine nature.  A video from Playboy featuring Sara Jean Underwood, a former Playmate of the Year, performing yoga poses, has angered Hindu elders, in what they see as the latest in a string of attempts to commercialise an ancient and spiritual practice.
“Hindus are upset over what is the misuse of the age-old and revered system of yoga by Playboy for mercantile greed, and we are urging the organisation to withdraw all its yoga-related products,” said Rajan Zed, president of the Universal Society of Hinduism.

Why Beer Queen Looses Her Crown

Why Beer Queen Looses Her Crown
As the curvy 20-year-old was being crowned Miss Beer Queen, organisers of the contest in Saaz, in the Czech Republic, had complimented her on her fluent Italian.'Oh, I spend a lot of time in Italy,' she replied.
'I work there as a stripper, pose for soft porn magazines and I'm an erotic weather girl on TV.'
The contest's Petr Simacek explained afterwards: 'It was very delicate because our rules specifically ban entries from anyone who has done any kind of erotic work.'Jana herself, however, had this to say of the decision to cancel the competition's results: 'It’s bloody stupid. They should have asked me that at the beginning, not while they were crowning me.'The Miss Beer controversy comes not long after Miss Great Britain hopeful Laura Anness was axed from the competition following revelations that she was a prostitute and topless model.

Ready for Zombie Wedding

Andy Monaghan and corpse bride Tracey shuffled down the aisle, before promising to care for each other ‘as we decay together’. Tracey said: 'I promised to take my awful rotting husband and to love and care for you as we decay together so that your rotting, bloated corpse may live for eternity beside me, or until someone removes your head.'
The gruesome groom, 36, was then told: ‘You may eat the bride.’ Guests wore creepy costumes for the ceremony in Worcester, which included the couples' six-year-old son William, who was dressed up as a zombie best man. Mrs Monaghan, 29, said: I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but it’s our fairytale wedding.

New surprise-Boy, 5, engaged to Girl, 3

Khalid's father Juma -- who lives in the city of Homs, some 100 miles north of Damascus -- told the paper that his son asked for his fellow kindergartner's hand in marriage "of his own free will," after a brief holiday romance. Both families are now reportedly preparing for the ceremony, which will take place in a decade, when Khalid is 15 and Hala 13. Such a ceremony would still be against Syrian law, which states the minimum age for marriage is 17 for women and 18 for men. The young couple apparently first met while their families were vacationing in the port city of Latakia. "He was so love-sick after parting from his young girlfriend that he refused to go back to his nursery unless little Hala came too," Juma said. When his wife contacted Hala's family, she was surprised to discover that their little girl was "developing similar symptoms of loneliness, and the family would be happy to see them engaged." Whether the kids willingly committed to each other for life -- or even understood the concept of marriage -- is doubtful. And the timing of the announcement conveniently chimes with a pledge Juma made during his wife's "complicated pregnancy" with their only child. "I vowed to have my child engaged at the age of 5 if he was a boy and to marry him to women of his choice at the age of 15," he said, adding that he has agreed to pay for Hala's education.

Detectives say at least one man died at the hands of Veronica Palmez after she spiked his drink.
The 35-year-old woman from Madrid has denied ever having known the 59-year-old man who died and claims she simply wanted to put her victims to sleep in order to steal their wallets. ‘We believe she targeted married men who were then too embarrassed to report what happened,’ said a police spokesman.

Lap dance awarded a man $650,000

A Palm Beach, Fla., man has been awarded $650,000 after he sued a local nightclub where he was injured by a stripper's shoe during a lap dance.
Michael Ireland was getting a lap dance at Cheetah Club in West Palm Beach in 2008 when the woman's heel poked him in the eye, NBC Miami reported Thursday. The heel punctured Ireland's eye socket and broke bones around his eye and nose. Ireland, a roofer, has experienced double vision ever since, lawyer Lake Lytal told the Palm Beach Post. "When this case was first filed, many people criticized it simply because it occurred at a strip club," Lytal told the media after the settlement was reached Thursday. "But we feel the $650,000 settlement goes to show that this was a serious case with serious injuries."
