Monday Sentiments

Charlo Greene, a former reporter on Alaska’s KTVA TV, quit on-air last night in a “Half Baked” style move after outing herself as the owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, which she had just been reporting on in the segment.

“Now everything you’ve heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska,” she said. “And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, fuck it, I quit.”

victoria-wild-32-g

Well, you did it, babe.

The plastic human model known as Victoria Wild actually looked pretty good before she spent $50,000 turning herself into an inflatable sex doll with 32G breasts. I really hope some budding photographer is in the process of a super long term project documenting the skin-to-plastic sag ratio as these cosmetic creatures get older and begin to melt.
