Kise offered to share, but despite his generosity, was arrested and charged with drunk driving.

The Indiana man who had a Romney-Ryan logo tattooed on his face says he’s “totally disappointed” by the election results. Eric Hartsburg, 30, was paid $15,000 by an anonymous Republican to have the 5-inch-high double-R logo tattooed on his face, and says his only consolation is knowing that “I did all that I could” to get Romney elected. “I’m the guy who has egg all over his face,” Hartsburg concedes, “but instead of egg, it’s a big Romney-Ryan tattoo.”

The “Restroom Cultural Park” makes its debut
South Korean tourists are flocking to a new toilet-themed amusement park. The “Restroom Cultural Park” in the city of Suwon is dedicated to the city’s former mayor, Sim Jae-duck, who, after being born in a toilet, spent his life campaigning for better local sanitation while living in a toilet-shaped house. Park spokeswoman Lee Youn Souk said the goal was to promote healthier bathroom habits. “We already know upon waking in the morning we should go to the toilet,” she said, “but people don’t want to talk about this.”
