Nipple-less wrestlers

Triple H, John Cena, Floyd Mayweather and the rest of the dudes on this Wrestlemania poster have had their nipples removed.

Apparently, "They were photoshopped out because of a law in Florida that prohibits the display of nipples. Since men's nipples are not sexualized in the same way that women's are, the authors of the law were likely thinking of women's bodies as they penned this ban. Thus, it illustrates that it is women's bodies that we think of when we think of bodies on display because of the adoption (by men and women alike in this culture) of a (heteronormative) male gaze."

I heart Gareth and Colin

I went to the Middlesbrough Supporters South Christmas party last night and was lucky enough to meet Gareth Southgate and Colin Cooper.

Over a few pints of Guinness, I got to have a chat with Gareth about tanktops, cardigans and James Morrison.

I have nothing but nice things to say about these two blokes and I'm totally proud that they're running my club.

Smurf war

War has broken out between the students of Chester and Southampton University, as both groups feel that they lay claim to the world record for the number of people dressed up like Smurfs.

"Chester managed almost 800 lookalikes, seemingly seeing off Southampton's 720.

But the southerners are disputing their northern counterparts' win as Chester students wore shower caps, not the traditional Smurfs headgear of white hats."

Vigilante robot

Rufus Terrill has had it with the drug dealers, petty thieves and vandals he says roam the streets outside his downtown Atlanta bar, O'Terrills. Instead of calling the police or hiring private security guards, Terrill built his own security robot.

The robot is controlled remotely, has a spotlight and a water gun, and Terrill uses a walkie-talkie to boom his disembodied voice over the robot's sound system.

"I tell them they are trespassing, it's private property, and they have to leave," Terrill says, "They throw bottles and cans at it. That's when I shoot the water cannon. They just scatter like roaches."

A video of the robot in action is here
