Brave Gingers

Tantalizing Tuesday to you all, my little gingersnaps! Honestly, with this headline, I'm not sure there's more for me to say, other than, AWESOME. And I'm not surprised this happened in Texas. I would totally move there if it weren't for many, many reasons that it's best I not mention publicly. How's that for P.C?

McKennon Wimberly, Bull Rider, Shot Hitchhiker He Claims Attacked Father With Beer, Texas Cops Say

A professional bull rider hailing from Cool, Texas allegedly shot a hitchhiker who he claims attacked his father with a case of beer.

John McKennon Wimberly, 24, was approached by a 35-year-old man outside of a truck stop on Wednesday afternoon, according to the Weatherford Democrat. The stranger, who later told police he had been drinking heavily prior the incident, asked Wimberly for a ride home.

Wimberly obliged, but when the two men got into an argument, Wimberly pulled over his vehicle at an intersection, Fox 4 reports. Wimberly's father, who had been driving behind his son, also pulled over.

The hitchhiker told officers that the father forced him out of the truck, which started a physical fight.

Wimberly then allegedly shot the hitchhiker in the calf with a .22 revolver. Wimberly said he did so because the hitchhiker had used a case of beer to strike his father, according to a press release from the Parker County Sheriff's office.

The victim was treated for his wounds and has been released from the hospital.

The Cool cowboy was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He was released from jail on Thursday on $100,000 bond.

In movie news, "Brave" topped the weekend box office. We just took the GForce5 (AKA the G-family) to see the movie yesterday and I will say that we all loved it. There were several LOL moments. Yay for movies that have a strong female character, and more importantly, lots and lots of GINGERS!!!

'Brave' Tops Weekend Box Office!

'Brave' Tops Weekend Box Office!

In other news, Alex Pettyfer says he's embarrassed by his racy dancing in the movie, "Magic Mike", where he plays a male stripper, along with Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Adam Rodriguez, and Cody Horn.

He claims he never danced before and found it hard to find the rhythm and put one foot in front of the other.

I think there's only one logical solution to this... I must watch this movie and decide for myself. I will of course give an objective account of how well Alex Pettyfer did his strip dancing.

Playing Channing Tatum's wide-eyed stripper protege in Magic Mike wasn't a huge stretch for Alex Pettyfer, 22.

"I had never danced before. I find it very hard to put one foot in front of the other, let alone move to the rhythm," the British actor, who is engaged to costar Riley Keough, 23, tells the July issue of Cosmopolitan. "And to dance with no clothes on, that's a new level of embarrassment."

Shaking his stuff on stage taught Pettyfer that women "like to have a good time as much as men do." In fact, he thinks more men should consider performing sexy stripteases. "Listen, it worked for Jason Biggs and made him ultrafamous when he stripped in American Pie. So yeah, why wouldn't a guy try it out in real life?"

According to Pettyfer, whose exes include Emma Roberts and Dianna Agron, it shouldn't be too hard to convince a man to strip down. "I think most women can get their men to do anything for them," he tells Cosmopolitan. "We don't need a lot of convincing."

Magic Mike -- which also stars Matthew McConaughey, 42, Matt Bomer, 34, Joe Manganiello, 35, Adam Rodriguez, 37, Olivia Munn, 31, and Cody Horn, 25 -- is in theaters June 29.

Hey, WTF?!! I fail to see the reason for these, but the most important question is... do they come in "ginger"?

Hairy Panties

Hairy Panties

Katriina Haikala and Vilma Metteri of Finland-based offbeat fashion company Nutty Tarts have created Hairy Panties, white women’s hipster-style underwear screenprinted with black pubic hair. Their tagline reads: “If you are fed up with bald beavers, this is the answer!”. The panties are part of their Hairy Underwear collection which includes Hairy Leggings and the Hairy Undershirt. There is also Hairy Underwear for Babies.

And that's all the time I have for you today. Who is coming with me to see "Magic Mike"? And until tomorrow, here's something for you to ponder...

When you pet a cat and it lifts its behind, it is inviting you to sniff its anal glands!

Cats have over 30 different sounds to relay their feelings. Cats are sociable and mix with other cats constantly. They don’t live in packs like dogs do. They use very subtle and complex body language and speak with each other.

There are at least 25 different visual signals used in 16 different combinations used by cats to intercommunicate. The main goal when they use body language is to avoid or end physical confrontation. The body language is broken down into parts- the head, the body, and the tail.

They must be seen as a whole, though, to understand what the cat is trying to communicate. The eyes, mouth, and ears must also be paid close attention to. Most cat owners adapt and learn some of what their cat is trying to communicate through body language.

No one understands it all, though. Interestingly, when a cat lifts its behind after you pet it, it is inviting you to sniff its anal glands. It is a way of being friendly and inviting you to be close with them and get to know them.



Have you "liked" me on Facebook yet? It's a great way to keep up with posts, and anything else I find funny along the way! https://www.facebook.com/GingersnapsInTheMorning


  1. Now this is more like it! Shirtless Alex Pettyfer = WIN (although, of the Magic Mike Boys, I am partial to Matt Bomer who doesn't play for my team but is just so nice to look at). You've got your trigger-happy Texans, cat video and a rather disturbing library book for kids. And you know there was some snickering when the sign was done.

    Now about the panties...I will give up my 35% of Zsadist if you and Spank each model a pair during your Epic Conclusion Where Nothing Happens weekend. Of course, I will need photos. O_o

    Happy to see that you listen to your readers' requests.


    1. LMFAO! You know I wouldn't be caught dead in those panties BUT you make a very tempting offer.

    2. Ha Carolyn!! I'm so glad today's post was up to your standards. *wink* I'm only wearing the hairy panties if 1. Spank does too and 2. They come in ginger. Oh, and 3. I'm really, really drunk. ;)

    3. How about I wear plain white panties and we say I had laser hair removal. But I'm really okay with any plan that involves being really, really drunk so never say never.

  2. Who cares if he can dance, just take it all off alex. I'm not watching for your dancing ability

    1. Good point. I'm totally going to this movie! You know, so I can tell you guys about it on my blog. The things I suffer through for my readers!!

  3. OMG!!! how come I'm soo finding this panties in ginger and sending them to you! LOL (or did u forgot I live in Finland?) *insert evil laugh*

    Looove the kitty video! how cute is that? I wish my kitties would do that!
    Anyway thanks for cheering up my day!

    1. You find me those panties and I'll wear them! Probably. Maybe. If I'm drunk.

      I know! I want one of my kitties to take me on a walk too!

  4. I love that you talked about Magic Mike because I actually dedicated today's post to this movie (or more specifically Alex Pettyfer) on my blog today. #greatmindsthinkalike

    1. LMAO, why am I not surprised? That's like me designing your blog without discussing it with you! LOL. Now if only I could find a way we could see this movie together! You might need to bring your Jasper shamWOW to the theater. *wiggles eyebrows*

    2. We're awesome! ;)

      Perhaps we should FaceTime during the movie. That is if you're okay with watching my O face on your phone for two hours. lol

    3. That would definitely get me kicked out of the Arclight Cinema, but it might just be worth it!! Jamie just agreed to see it with me. We'll grab drinks at Cheesecake Factory and toast to you before we see it!

  5. There's a "Cool, Texas" ?? GTFO!

    Alex Pettyfer's got range, I'll give him that. And that's not even a length pun. This guy played the hero in Number Four, the Villain in In Time, and a stripper in this.

    Is that Dad goes to jail book racist because the animals are brown? lol j/k

    That is a ridiculous book, though. What the hell happened on that fishing trip?!

    Why is there hairy underwear for babies? They want my money. I see how it is. Also, who's fed up with bald beavers? Who looks at a vagina and rages?! Not I, said this cat.
