Octopus’ Modeling Career Is Short And Tasty

Published

on

The photographer says the octopus model was “slippery” and “really hard to grab ahold of.”

Once the modeling industry gets its tentacles into you, there’s no going back.

A giant Pacific octopus learned that the hard way after posing for a series of photos with a Japanese model/food blogger known as Namada.

    Namada said she decided to pose with an octopus because she “likes tentacles,” according to Motherboard.sg.

    Working with a 39-pound live octopus spread all over her body wasn’t as easy as she expected.“It was really difficult because it was so heavy!” she said.

    Although the octopus didn’t throw any star fits, photographer Kazan Yamamoto,said there were some unexpected challenges.

    “Because it was alive, it would move around, and because it was slippery, it was really hard to grab ahold of,” he told TokyoGirlsUpdate.com. “It was really hard to think of the composition while shooting photos.”

    The photos were recently put on display at a gallery in Tokyo, but the octopus wasn’t invited to the opening.

    What happened next won’t surprise anyone who’s worked in show business.

    After the octopus’ services were no longer needed, he was chewed up and swallowed — literally.

    Namada and Yamamoto boiled the octopus and turned it into a hat for one last photo before eating their collaborator.

Some are comparing the photos to artist Katsushika Hokusai’s “Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife,” an 1814 print that depicts sex between a woman and two octopuses. But Yamamoto told TokyoGirlsUpdate.com that wasn’t the inspiration.

Hokusai’s work was, however, the focal point in a fabulously hilarious scene in “Mad Men.” We miss you, Peggy Olson.

Nearly half of people don’t change their Underwear Daily- and some wear same for a week.

Published

Source: Mirrow- Recently we discovered that a worrying number of people aren’t washing their underwear correctly.

And now to make matters worse, we’ve just found out that there are plenty of people out there who don’t put on a clean pair of underwear everyday.

Yes, really.

According to new research by underwear maker Tommy John, around half of people in the US (45 percent) don’t change their underwear daily – and a disturbing 13 percent of those they spoke to even confessed to wearing the same pair of knickers or pants for an entire week.

Ew!

Men were found to be the worst for doing this, with the survey of 1,000 Americans showing that males are two-and-a-half times more likely than women to wear the same pants for seven days or longer.

The research also revealed that people felt a strong sense of loyalty for their underwear, with 46 percent of participants admitting that they had owned the same underwear for a year or more.

Around 38 percent also said they’d had their favourite underwear for so long, they couldn’t remember when they bought it.

But this behaviour goes against the company’s recommendations, as they advise their customers to throw out their old underwear and buy new pants every six months to a year.

This is because underwear collects bacteria that can lead to nasty infections in the long run.

And as for bras, Marks and Spencer’s bra fit expert and technical manager Julia Mercer recently spoke to MirrorOnline about when you need to get a new one.

She said: “In my opinion, a bra is at its best in its first year of being worn”.

So there you have it folks, if you’re wearing underwear you’ve had at home for more than a year, it’s probably time to nip to the shops and treat yourself to some fresh new ones.

Kenyan officials exhume man’s body to retrieve uniform

Published

on

Officials in western Kenya have exhumed the body of a local man to strip him of the uniform he was buried in, according to reports.

Martin Shikuku Alukoye was buried in his full Kakamega County Youth Service uniform after drowning this month.

Local officials then exhumed the body to retrieve the uniform, despite opposition from his family.

Mr Alukoye’s uncle said they had violated “the laws of the land and the laws of our forefathers”.

“We had fully involved the county government in the burial arrangements and they never resisted our proposal to bury [him] in his work regalia,” Francis Mutamba said, according to the Daily Nation newspaper.

The family said they had opposed requests from officials to retrieve the uniform following the 31-year-old’s burial, but that officials then did so without their consent or a court order.

The assistant chief of the Ituti area, Daniel Namayi, condemned the exhumation as he threatened legal action against the officers.

“Once a body has been buried, it requires anyone with a complaint to get a court order in order to exhume it. The county administrators have gone against the law in recovering [the] clothing,” he told the Daily Nation.

Elders of the Abang’onya clan have also criticised the county officials for the exhumation, which they view as being taboo.

“We had decided to bury our son at night in line with culture which dictates that a person who died by drowning should not be buried while the sun is shining. But the county officers have surprised us when they decided to exhume the body to recover their regalia,” Mr Mutamba said.

The body was dressed in a new set of clothes and re-buried earlier this week after elders performed rituals to cleanse the family.
