It must be true...
I read it in the tabloids
An Oregon man who was driving with his cat on the hood of his car told police the feline likes to “surf” there. Police questioned Jesse Dorsett after a concerned bystander spotted him cruising slowly around a Taco Bell parking lot with his pet, Pixie, perched on the vehicle. Dorsett explained that his kitty enjoys riding on the hood while searching the passing ground for mice and rats, and that he never goes faster than 5 mph when Pixie’s on board. “It’s hard for me to see how anyone can construe hurting a cat in this scenario,” Dorsett said, “when the cat is clearly enjoying the ride.”
In an unusual career change, the actor who once played Barney the dinosaur on the hit children’s show is now a tantric sex therapist. David Joyner wore the purple T. rex costume from 1991 to 2001, but has reinvented himself as a hands-on guru. His female clients, whom he calls “goddesses,” pay $350 for three hours of chakra balancing and tantric massage that, he says, can result in “mind-blowing orgasms.” Joyner sees his new career as a natural progression from his work as Barney. “The energy I brought up in the costume is based on the foundation of tantra,” he said, “which is love.”
A British woman has had the word “vegan” tattooed on her forehead in big, bold letters to demonstrate her dedication to a life free of animal products. Kate Bullen, 22, stopped eating meat several years ago and decided recently that she wanted to publicly broadcast her support for animal rights. “I’m incredibly passionate about veganism,” she said, “so I wanted this [tattoo] to be someplace visible.” Bullen says the ink serves another useful purpose: “Now I don’t need to tell everyone I’m vegan every five minutes.” ■
