1. On two occasions shortly after its installation Bouscau reduced the size of the statue’s penis, following complaints from local women.

2. The statue’s penis has frequently been stolen and in 2016 the city council decided it would not be replaced permanently but that a temporary penis would be installed when public events were held near the statue.

Or maybe he’s really dead. You make the call.

“John McAfee, the 90s software magnate-turned-globe-trotting fugitive, was found dead on Wednesday afternoon in a Spanish prison cell just hours after a court authorized his extradition to the United States on tax evasion charges. McAfee was 75.”

“According to Spanish newspaper El Mundo, which cited a statement from the Catalan Departamento de Justicia confirming the death, attempts by jail staff to resuscitate McAfee were unsuccessful. Reuters confirmed the department’s statement, which said the death was most likely a suicide.”

“The Texas congressman asked whether there was anything the U.S. Forest Service could do ‘to change the course of the moon’s orbit or the Earth’s orbit around the sun.'”

The noted genius addressed a Forest Service spokesperson as follows: “If you figure out there’s a way in the Forest Service you could make that change, I’d like to know.”

Unfortunately, the Forest Service was too busy raking the forests to deploy any of their latest orbit-altering technology.

“It’s claimed they thought scene with Catwoman would impact toy sales

I guess the impact would depend on the specific nature of those toys.

If there is any live action footage of some 69 action between Adam West and Julie Newmar, I would gladly pay to see it. Especially if Burt Ward sees them and says, “Holy of Holies, Batman,” or perhaps

“Holy Grail, Batman”
“Holy Cats, Batman”

Jody Swafford applies lotion to Laura Lee in that glittering jewel of the silver screen, “Evils Of The Night” (1985)

The cast of this film is delightful: John Carradine, Tina Louise, Julie Newmar, Neville Brand and Aldo Ray. The production values really add to the fun, as they spared no expense on the special effects (I think they went to Toys R Us and bought something like a Battlestar Galactica toy, then hung it in front of a black background, Ed Wood style.)

About a decade later, the same director made a James Dean biopic starring Casper Van Dien. I have not seen that film, but once again, his casting was amazing: Connie Stevens, Casey Kasem, Diane Ladd, Robert Mitchum (?!), Mike Connors, and many others. That’s right, Robert Mitchum and Casey Kasem, together at last!

Hundreds? Man, those counterfeiters had a lot of balls.

It’s amazing that these bills fooled anyone, given that they are filled with bright red characters in some Asian language. (The article says Chinese.)

And also that the face on the hundred is Johnny Weissmuller.

This is actually from my local news station and took place in my county, although I had no idea we were having a testicle festival, and I’m taking a hard pass. The one from last year advertised the following: “Enjoy live music, exotic food and good times at the Testicle Festival! Admission fee includes all-u-can-eat testicles.”

All you can eat testicles? With no side dishes?

That’s just nuts.

Sylvester Stallone claimed Richard Gere thought he had started a wild urban myth about a gerbil being removed from his rectum after a row over a greasy chicken sparked a feud between the two actors”

Rumor, nothin’. In Breathless there’s a scene where you can actually see the gerbil poking his head out like a gopher.

Step aside, Hef, Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson, Wilt Chamberlain and DeCaprio. The new king of the party dudes is in da house!

It brings to mind the Beverly Hillbillies, when Jethro set his career sights on “Famous International Playboy.”

But then again, I guess a hundred billion dollars could even get Clint Howard some decent trim.
