Piggy banks made from real piglets spark outrage

by Accidental Bear

A Big WTF?

Ah, the venerable piggy bank, home to the hopes and dreams of children everywhere. But in a sick twist on an old classic, one Canadian-based business is offering piggy banks made from real piglets.
“Designed for anyone who has far too much money and loose change, this is the piggy bank of all piggy banks,”says the site TheCheeky.com. The banks, which take 12 months to create, cost $4,000.
Needless to say, animal rights advocates are incensed at the idea — especially when Vancouver Magazine included the concept in its recent Holiday Gift Guide.

The Sad Death of Gun Control ( Squishy Face)

by Accidental Bear

I go back and forth on how I feel  gun ownership should happen. It’s way more easy for a moron to purchase a hand gun than to finish High School. Thats F***ed up! My own personal fear with owning a gun would be that it would be WAY to easy to use.

An obviously deranged man killed six people with a legally purchased and legally carried pistol on Saturday, and the only thing we’re arguing about is whether he was listening to Sarah Palin.
The debate over what caused Jared Lee Loughner to do what he did is a waste of time. He was obviously suffering from paranoid schizophrenia or a similarly destabilizing emotional disorder; parsing out the particular determinants of his apparent belief that grammar is mind control will not solve any puzzles. The thing about genuine craziness is that it rejects parsing, invents its own reasons, and resists explanation. Accusing Sarah Palin and assorted other teabaggers of somehow inspiring or abetting this action is like accusing Scooby Doo of inspiring Sam Berkowitz’s affection for his neighbor’s talking dog. The workings of a properly delusional mind are unfathomable.

I shave With Wood Chips and Aloe Vera

by Accidental Bear

Ok, thats not true. Even us beardies usually shave our cheeks and necks ( No, this doesn’t make you less rugged). Under the influence of peer pressure and my super hero ideas to save the world. I want to be the greeniest shaver that ever lived.

What’s the greenest way to shave?

By Brian Palmer @ Slate.com



Trimming Your Carbon Footprint

My friends are always arguing about the relative merits of electric and disposable razors. All the debate over closeness of shave, maintenance, and the ability to do one’s grooming while stuck in traffic is wearing me out, so I’m putting my decision in Mother Earth’s hands. Which kind of razor is better for the environment?

Ah, one of the great dude debates. Right up there with boxers vs. briefs and The Godfather vs. Billy Madison. Sure, grooming enthusiasts have a plethora of shaving options, from single-blade to safety razors, but for most men the choice comes down to disposables versus electric. After a column on menstruation and another declaring women the greener sex, it’s about time the Lantern tackled a male-centric conundrum.
