Loose clothing every day keeps the pedophiles away. That seems to be the message a school in Scotland is sending to students. The school sent a letter home to kids' families, outlining a new dress code, and prohibiting tight pants and short skirts, which they claimed might attract the attention of sexual predators. Whatever happened to don't blame the victim, especially when the victim is a child?
It's a good thing Kate Middleton's wedding gown was form-fitting. It at least bought her a good 12 hours of marital bliss before the ultimate bump watch began. In case you haven't heard, the bride reportedly specially requested Brussels sprouts on her honeymoon, supposedly in efforts to increase fertility. No pressure Kate, but they say that if you'd don't deliver within the year, you'll be the first royal to have not produced an heir by her one year anniversary. Just tell everyone you're Waitie Katie and you'll get to it when you're good and ready.
Who wears short shorts? Apparently not the high school yearbook editor who didn't make the cheerleading squad and later wrote an unflattering article about the group in the school's yearbook. The 2011 Yearbook Constitutional Challenge to Free Speech Award goes to River City High School in West Sacramento, Calif., for publishing both the article and some would say, unkind photos of the school's cheerleaders. While 1,000 copies of the yearbook have already been distributed, school officials are holding back the remaining 600 copies until a revised article can be printed. The editor has since written a letter of apology. Just guessing here, but we'd say there's a decent chance a new staff member will advise that yearbook next year.

Reading it, one can't help but think that baby was destined to wind up with that couple.
Like a bad penny, the story of Octomom keeps resurfacing in the news. This time, it's not the mom herself but her doctor, who's making headlines for having his medical license revoked. Dr. Michael Kamrava, who implanted 12 embryos in Nadya Suleman -- six times the norm for a woman of her age -- will lose his license effective July 1.
