Woman Claims Ownership of the Sun

Ladies and gentlemen, it may have taken billions of years, but we now know who the sun's owner is. Angeles Duran, a 49 year-old Spanish woman, registered the big star at a local notary public last week. Duran claims there is an international agreement which states that no country may claim ownership of a planet or star, but it says nothing about individuals. States Duran: "There was no snag. I backed my claim legally. I am not stupid, I know the law." Duran wants to charge a fee to everyone using, ahem, her sun. Dayum.....lifeguards are screwed.

Creepy "Toy" of the Day

WTF?

I'm not really sure where to begin with this, I just have so many questions. Why is this girl smiling when she has a guitar embedded in her torso? Does she come with a change of outfits or do you have to buy them separately? Does she know leg-warmers are fashionably dead? Why didn't the creaters give her an ass? What demographic are they marketing this mess to? Why is White-Afro-Man wearing sunglasses indoors? Is he available for purchase too? And most importantly, where the hell is the rest of the guitar?
