Spank, happy birthday to you, my BFF, my other half and the totally platonic love of my life. Today I share with you a LOLcats picture just for YOU!

In other news, a woman tried to sell her soul on eBay. Apparently that goes against eBay's policy of selling humans, and human body parts, with the exception of hair and skulls. (skulls? really?) Anywho, if she is so desperate to sell her soul, shouldn't she have given the Devil the first chance to bid? He kind of seems like the go-to guy for that sort of thing.

Lori N, Albuquerque Woman, Tries To Sell Soul On eBay

Lori N Sells Soul On Ebay
An Albuquerque woman reportedly attempted to sell her soul on eBay.

How much is a soul worth?

A down-on-her-luck freelance writer in Albuquerque, N.M., tried to sell her soul on eBay.

The listing appears to no longer be up, but KOB reports that the starting bid for Lori N's soul was $2,000.

Lori was in a car accident in 2007, after which she entered a coma for three weeks and woke up suffering from a stroke, a broken hip, broken pelvis, leg, collarbone, sternum, ribs, and a collapsed lung, according to KOB.

She told the station her advertisement was a cry for help.

"I guess you could say that. I'm at the point now, I'm tired," Lori said. "I don't feel good. I'm near the end of my rope. I really am."

As Business Insider notes, eBay has a strict policy for selling human remains.

From eBay:

We don't allow humans, the human body, or any human body parts or products to be listed on eBay, with two exceptions. Sellers can list items containing human scalp hair, and skulls and skeletons intended for medical use.

A University of Washington student tried a similar stunt when his soul went for $400 on eBay in February. But, as ABC News reports, the listing was taken down and the student's eBay account was suspended.

I'm not really a huge fan of Kelly Osbourne, nor am I gonna deny that they photoshopped her so much that it doesn't even look like her, but I gotta give her props for having a full head of purple hair. If I wasn't a redhead, I'd probably go full purple too. I just can't get rid of the ginger.

Kelly Osbourne takes the cover of Glamoholic‘s first Anniversary issue.

Here is what the 27-year-old fashion icon had to share with the mag:

On her relationship with boyfriend Matthew Mosshart: “I wanted to give it time, I wanted to get to know my boyfriend before the world does. You can’t keep something a secret forever.”

On her brother Jack‘s fight with multiple sclerosis: “What actually has made it better is waking up every day and seeing how amazing my brother is and how incredible he’s doing. He has a brain that is very military-like. Where, even if he doesn’t like something, he can make himself like it. And he’s doing, excuse my language, f–king amazing! It just blows my mind!”

On her favorite celeb fashionista: “I’m really excited for Emma Stone because I think she has a very interesting sense of style. She’s a total fashionista and always feels comfortable in whatever she wears.”

While filming the series, "The Litter", the cameraman sneezed and surprised one of the kittens quite a bit. This is perhaps one of the funniest kitten videos I've seen.

And that's all the time I have for today. I'll meet you back here same time, same place tomorrow. Until then, here's something you should know... even the Mexicans have rejected Taco Bell.

Taco Bell has tried to enter the Mexican market twice, failing both times, even after branding their food "American" food.

Taco Bell is nothing like real Mexican food, which is delicious. Mexicans don’t use ground beef in any of their tacos except one called picadillo and they rarely use chicken.

Neither is there any such thing as a hard taco shell. The closest thing to a hard taco shell is called a tostada and it is flat and orange and often served with a layer of beans and cheese on it. It isn’t shocking that Taco Bell is a total flop in Mexico.

They’ve tried t enter the market twice and bombed twice. Other American fast food chains that are popular are McDonalds, Dominos Pizza, and Carls Jr. Starbucks is HUGE in Mexico and Krispy Kreme is on the rise.

Taco Bell was founded in 1962 in California by Glen Bell. By 1967 they had opened their 100th store. They tried to plant themselves in Australia in 1981. A few stores opened, but by 2005 the Taco Bell brand was yanked from the country. In 1981 they also began planting themselves in Canada. However, their Canadian owner, Priszm, went bankrupt in 2011 and the stores folded.





  1. This has to be the best gift ever (aside from the awesome books you sent me!) but I don't understand what the "give or take" is about? I am 29 today. I have the candles my kids picked out for the cake tonight to prove it. ;)

    Thanks SO much for your friendship, love and support in all matters of my life be them funny or tragic. I could not survive without the deepest and most treasured platonic love of my life.

  2. That kitty-cat's reaction seemed to have stumped the other kitties, too.

    Say....why don't we get Spank's birthday off with holiday pay? That sounds like a great idea to me, but my employer will only let me ask for the time off. And if I get paid, I will have to do vacation pay. The nerve!

    1. I support this measure. It should be like Cinco de Mayo only ummm... well... Nueve de Julio. With Patron. A LOT of patron.

    2. *holds out wand, shouts* "EXPECTO PATRON!!!"
