Best part is he loses by $1.
Rick Mercer being Canadian and no stranger to poking fun at RIM in the past — is at it again with his latest video. Rick kicked things off a few years back with the always funny “BlackBerry Helmet” video but the latest video has him loving his iPhone and then all of a sudden returning to his beloved BlackBerry. You’ll have to watch the video to find out why. We’ll let Rick slide on this one as we know for a fact he’s still a BlackBerry user.
“You’re enjoying the view, you’re enjoying the cleaning,” said Nina Torres.
That’s the concept that motivated Torres to start Edan’s Maids R’ Us, a team of sexy housekeepers that service South Florida. “They actually clean, I can guarantee you that,” said Torres.
The website specifically explains it is not an escort service.
“No, we are 100 percent house cleaners, we clean your house, we organize, we cook we do laundry, nothing else,” Torres said.
Edan’s maids charge $60 per hour with a two hour minimum.
But before you call, you can go online and access their menu of maids. They have 15 total and you can choose which one comes to your house.
When you click on a maid, it shows their stats, including height, weight, age, ethnicity, even measurements.
“It’s like a restaurant, in a way” said Frances, one of Edan’s Maids. “You get to choose the plate that you want.”
“Someone yesterday said it’s so hard to choose just one,” Torres proudly explained. “They said they love them all, just give me the best.”
Edan’s maids go out on jobs alone, but Torres screens customers on the phone and has every girl call when they arrive and leave to make sure they’re safe.
“If somebody ever tries to be fresh, I mean you have to tell them this isn’t what it is, I’m sorry if you must have a misunderstanding,” Frances said.
So far, Torres said there hasn’t been a single problem and her maids often spend time just chatting with customers who are looking for company.
“It’s like a partner for a little bit, it’s a friend, somebody to spend time with and have fun with,” Frances said.
So, if your house is really dirty, this might not be your best bet, but, if you’ve got some chores that need to be done and you want a sexy show at the same time, Edan’s Maids R’ Us are for you.
Renee Williams saw a problem and came up with a solution.
“I was at a girls night out and we were mingling and just having fun and I kept hearing requests for napkins and paper towels and the reason was because they were spills,” she explains. “It really just popped into my head and I was like ok, I know what I can do.”
Renee created her own martini glass.
She calls it “Sipatiniz”.
It’s designed with a lip to keep the liquid inside and a hole for a little straw.
“It just cuts down on that basic slosh when you’re mingling around and talking with your hands and the things we do,” Renee explains.
They’re now available in more than 100 retail stores across the country.
* If you don’t want to spill your martini, USE A DIFFERENT GLASS! Not sure why people have to use a martini glass for martinis. It’s only a look, imho.
“It’s a very unique piece and a fantastic part of Canadian hockey history,” Marc Juteau, president of Classic Auctions in Quebec, told AFP.
With the Winter Games taking place now in Vancouver, Juteau said he expects a bidding frenzy at the March 16 auction that will also feature hundreds of items from a century of sport.
The Spalding stick, signed along the shaft and blade along with the message “With best thanks,” was discovered in the early 1990s in a Toronto basement with unknown links to the team.
The Toronto Granites were Canada’s top amateur club in 1924 and represented the nation at the first modern Olympics, outscoring their opponents 110 to three in five games.
Canada would go on to win hockey gold at five of the first six Olympic hockey tournaments, before a 50-year drought set in between 1952 and 2002.
Three players from Canada’s 1924 Olympic squad were later inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Hundreds of hockey jerseys, pucks, trophies and other memorabilia are also on the auction block.
Early online bids start at less than 500 dollars (468 US dollars) for a stick signed by hockey great Wayne Gretzky or a Winnipeg Jets jersey.
Yvan Cournoyer’s red Team Canada uniform worn at the 1972 Canada versus Russia Summit Series, a US men’s ice hockey gold medal from the “Miracle on Ice” 1980 Lake Placid Games when a young US team upset the powerhouse Soviet national team, and the actual puck shot by American Mark Johnson to tie the game 2-2 are expected to fetch much more.
Another hockey stick said to date back to 1850s Ontario, meanwhile, is also to be sold at a separate auction on February 28. It is currently on display in Vancouver.
The so-called Rutherford Stick was previously sold to a Canadian collector in 2006 for 1.9 million dollars (1.78 million US).
Avon, Colorado – A U.S. man who claims marijuana is the main sacrament of his religion says a drug charge against him means he’s being prosecuted for his beliefs.
Trevor Douglas of the state of Colorado says he belongs to the Hawaii-based THC Ministry but was cited for marijuana possession after a state police officer pulled him over for having an expired license plate. The 25-year-old allegedly had less than an ounce of marijuana and a pipe.
Douglas told the Vail Daily newspaper that his religion is similar to Christianity and that the use of pot is sacred to him just like wine and bread are sacred to Christians.
According to its Web site, THC Ministry has offices in Los Angeles, Montana and Colorado.
Marathon, Fla. – Investigators in the Florida Keys say they lured a suspected marijuana grower into turning himself in by leaving a ransom note in place of six seized pot plants.
The sheriff’s office in Monroe County says detectives discovered the plants in a wooded lot and confiscated them.
They left a phone number on a note that read: “Thanks for the grow! You want them back? Call for the price.”
Steven Alan Locasio called the number about 10 minutes later. Locasio offered $200 for the plants, and detectives agreed to meet him for an exchange.
Locasio was arrested and booked into jail on drug charges. He was expected to appear in court Tuesday. It’s unclear if he already has an attorney.
A telephone message left for Locasio was not immediately returned.
Nurses, doctors and secretaries who sign up with the small private clinic for three years can choose their free plastic surgery.
“It has been a success,” Jiri Schweitzer, a manager at the Iscare clinic, said, adding the establishment was now fully staffed and had to reject dozens of beauty-hunting job applicants.
Petra Kalivodova, a 31-year-old nurse who has been working at the clinic for four years, has had a breast implants – the most popular choice among nurses – so she underwent liposuction for her signing on perk.
“I have mentioned this to colleagues and friends, and the interest in working here is huge,” she said.
The clinic charges up to 75,000 koruna ($5060) for a breast implant, almost three times the average nurse’s monthly wage, and up to €1880 ($3380) for liposuction.
Many Czech nurses have been tempted out of the country by higher wages offered in western European nations and the Czech health system now needs about 6000 nurses in addition to the 90,000 it already employs, according to official data.
Fake ‘No Parking’ Signs Fool Tarpon Springs Police, Who Write 233 Tickets Near Tarpon Turtle Restaurant2009, May 31st
At the same time, acting Tarpon Springs police Chief Robert Kochen acknowledged his department’s failure to properly handle the matter in 2007.
“We messed up,” Kochen said. “We did not look at this thing like we should have.”
In a 23-page report released this week, Kochen said developer Mike Bronson admitted recently to installing the signs along the city’s right of way after initially denying it.
“Mike Bronson advised that back around April of 2006 he installed all of the 22 signs due to the parking problems caused by customers of the Tarpon Turtle,” Kochen wrote in the report.
Bronson could not be reached for comment.
A Taiwan carpenter bought a porn DVD only to find secretly taped motel footage of his wife having sex with his friend, whom the husband later stabbed.
The husband, identified only by his surname Lee, discovered the illicit sex on the DVD in 2002.
The sexual acts apparently had been recorded using a hidden camera and were on a pornographic DVD, titled Affairs with Others’ Wives, which the husband bought from a vendor to watch at home.
Lee, who lives in Taoyuan County near Taipei, divorced his wife after viewing the DVD. His friend, a butcher, fled their village.
In August 2008, Lee spotted the butcher in Chungli City, returned with a knife and stabbed his former friend in the thigh.
The butcher sued Lee for causing bodily harm. Lee sought but was unable to countersue the butcher for adultery, because of a five-year statute of limitations.
Prosecutors urged the men to settle the case out of court, but they refused.
With the failure to resolve the case, Lee was indicted on Tuesday on a charge of causing bodily harm to another person, the Liberty Times reported.
Prosecutors were seeking a sentence of less than six months in prison, which can be converted into a fine.
Sixty-five-year-old Jose Castelar smoked his own 2005 record of a 20.41-meter-long (67-foot-long) cigar, and vowed to continue to roll record-breaking creations.
“I’m going to continue until I do one that is the length of the Malecon” he said, referring to Havana’s famous 10-kilometer (six-mile) seafront promenade.
Castelar – who has rolled for a Saudi prince, among others – received a Guinness world record for his troubles.
Decked out in a traditional white guayabera, Castelar explained he learned to make cigars when he was 14 years old.
But the athletic-looking sexagenarian said he limits himself to smoking one cigar a day.
I’d love for him to roll me a joint that big. ;)
Appenzell, Switzerland – Hikers will no longer be able to stroll naked through the idylic Alpine countryside of Appenzell Innerrhoden after the conservative Swiss canton banned nude walking there.
Appenzell Innerrhoden has become hugely popular for naked ramblers due to its tranquil, picture-perfect meadows and valleys. But the hordes offended Appenzellers’ sensitivities and they voted Sunday to order them to cover up.
“It’s ridiculous that Appenzell is getting an international reputation for such a despicable habit,” said Peter Schmid, who turned up bearing the canton’s traditional long sword to vote against nude hiking at the annual open-air Landsgemeinde.
The Landsgemeide is a popular assembly that takes place in Appenzell town on the last Sunday of April. Participants vote by raising hands to decide on local issues, a privilege reserved to men only until women were admitted in 1990.
Between 3,000 and 4,000 voters, many wearing traditional robes, turned up at this year’s Landsgemeinde.
The canton of Appenzell Innerrhoden started earlier this year to take steps to rein in what the local justice and police department called “immoral habits.”
One of the men went to a courier company in the southern city of Malaga on April 6 and asked the employee to send the package, which contained wine, sausages and cakes in addition to the hashish, police said in a statement.
The following day the man returned to the courier company to complain that the package had not arrived at its intended destination only to learn that he had given the company the wrong address.
Police seized about 600 grammes (21 ounces) of hashish. They did not identify the two men who are aged 30 and 32.
Comcast spokesman Jeff Alexander says the 2 a.m. Friday programming glitch was due to a required test of the Emergency Alert System. He says such tests are usually done in the overnight hours.
The test automatically tunes viewers to a preselected channel that would provide information in the event of an emergency. But during tests, the channel airs regular programming, which in this case included a paid advertisement for the racy videos.
Alexander says the problem affected the network’s entire local area, but only one person called to complain.
Stockholm – A Swedish strip club could face legal action from McDonald’s if it fails to remove a sign believed to be a rip-off of its famous golden arches, the US fast food giant said Thursday.
A sign that hangs outside McDragan’s strip club in Edsvaera, southwestern Sweden, shows a large red “M” with nipples — something which the US fast-food chain says is a breach of its own copyrighted logo.
“We feel the sign and the way they portray the M on the sign is too similar to our M. We don’t want to be connected to a strip club in any way,” McDonald’s spokeman Claes Eliasson told AFP.
Eliasson said the company had sent a letter to the club owner asking him to remove the sign, adding McDonald’s would consider whether to take any legal action next week.
“We will of course consult with our legal counsellors on what steps should be taken depending on his response,” he said.
But McDragan’s owner Dragan Bratic, a 37-year-old Swedish national of Yugoslav origin, said he had not yet heard from McDonald’s and denied he deliberately copied their logo.
“Striptease elicits a reaction in people. So we thought it would be a good idea to have a lighthearted sign. We found an image in a Japanese magazine of two breasts, and were inspired by that.”
“I have nothing to do with hamburgers…they just want to distance themselves from striptease,” he said.
Bratic dismissed McDonald’s concerns that customers would draw a link between their restaurants and his strip club on seeing the sign.
“You can’t make that mistake! The breasts are huge!,” he said.
I love that ending to the article. ;)
Kyoto, Japan – Whether you’re a g-string girl or prefer granny-style knickers, a Japanese lingerie maker is inviting women to liberate themselves from conventional, body-hugging underwear and don loincloths instead.
Loincloths, called “fundoshi” in Japanese, were worn by adult men in the past, but they are now a rarity.
Kyoto-based lingerie firm Wacoal, however, has brought them back into fashion, this time for women seeking “emancipation” from the tightness of conventional underwear.
“We wanted young women to have a more sense of freedom and release. And as we tried to come up with the ultimate liberation item for women, we thought of a fundoshi,” said Tomoka Okamura, merchandise director for Wacoal’s Nanafun female loincloths.
The loincloths for women come in seven different colors and two designs — plain and chequered. Prices are about 1,260 yen ($13).
Wacoal has sold more than 5,000 since December, three times more than it had expected, officials said, and the company now plans to start selling them in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore.
“It’s easy to wear and is quite nice. It’s also good for summer. And since it’s getting warmer, I figured it would be good for that,” said Hiromi Iwamura, a 28-year-old shopper who was buying a patterned loincloth and matching bra.
