The Goddess of Grope

grope-goddess

After spending years as a midwife, Takiko Shindo mastered the Japanese art of Oppai Taisou (translated: boob exercise), which is meant to help women “achieve healthier, shapely bosoms.” Realizing that her hands were a hot commodity and that all women should benefit from her method, Shindo developed the “Oppai Taisou Hand” to simulate her master touch. Essentially an oversized back scratcher, the pink plastic hand allows its user to simulate the groping method in the comfort of their own home.

Love in an Elevator on the Way to Your Bachelor Pad

la-bachelor-pad

Imagine driving a car—your car—to the end of a cul de sac in the Hollywood Hills where you park it inside of a garage carved into a hill. Upon exiting the vehicle, you and your date walk through a gated tunnel to a private elevator where you’re whisked up 6 stories to the top of a Tuscan tower. After stuffing everything back into place, you and your date arrive at your front door high above Hollywood BLVD. You remark “this is where David Copperfield used to live” and now my friend, this is where you live, and you’re the one with the magical powers. Featuring hardwood floors, a washer/dryer, and excellent views from the terrace, this one bedroom apartment is a sun-filled world away from that old studio you used to rent in the city that never sleeps. So sleep in, and look forward to many more elevator rides to your new heaven.

“It is small-minded to focus on the university buying a $200,000 table”

200k-conference-table

Right? Especially when you consider that this custom-made (in China), circular conference table seats 23 and features “data ports, microphones and an illuminated map of the world in a glass panel at its center.” It’s the centerpiece of the newly needed “world-class corporate meeting space” at the school. So what university would make such an extravagant purchase? Columbia? Yale? NYU? Nope. The school in question is none other than Kean University, a co-ed public school located in Northern New Jersey whose four year tuition totals something like $44,000. It’s destined to become a breeding ground for UN delegates, or at least James Bond villains.
