Norwegian Vows To Catch The Jerk Who Chopped Off Its ‘Penis Rock’


Police in Norway are vowing to catch the vandals who seem to hacked off a rock development that resembled an erect male organ.  

The fallen Trollpikken (loosely, the “ troll dick” ) was a well-known destination  in Eigersund for hikers and climbers. But Olav Magne Egebakken told Norway’ s TELEVISION 2 that he was running past the formation on Saturday when he or she noticed the “ troll” had been no longer aroused.

“ It looks like someone provides used a drill on top, ” Egebakken told the network.   “ This is vandalism, there is no question. ”

Whomever vandalized the rock could address six years in prison, but so far there are no suspects. Specialists plan to further investigate on Mon.  

“ The evidence is there and we’ ve got pictures, ”   Magnar Sandstø l, acting police chief in Eigersund, told NRK. He can question possible witnesses this week.  

Stavanger Aftenblad, a daily newspaper in Stavanger, Norway, posted an image of the damage on Instagram:  

A posting shared by Stavanger Aftenblad (@aftenbladet) on

Video footage from the scene posted on Facebook also showed the damage as well as the grooves that indicated the use of a tool or even tools to take down the Trollpikken:

Eigersund Mayor Odd Stangeland lamented the landmark’ s loss.  

“ This is simply depressing! ” Stangeland wrote on Fb, adding that the community had wished the formation could be used to pull more tourists to the region.   He said it had been “ developed by nature, ” but was now “ sadly destroyed by humans. ”

However , many may not be lost.  

Contractor Sverre Garpestad informed TV 2 that with the aid of helicopters, it would take about an hour to drill new supports, add bolts plus mortar, and replace the rock and roll.  

“ We have the Viagra it takes, ” he was quoted as saying.  

Now, presumably, all Garpestad needs may be the money for the job.   To that particular end, a crowdfunding site within Norway has raised about $20, 000, nearly two-thirds of a goal set by activists to repair the particular formation.

Here is a List Of Every Single Trump Lie Since He Took Office


It’ s easier to count the days President  Donald Trump hasn’ t humiliated.

A New You are able to Times editorial says the leader has only managed to be falsity free 39 total days in the first sixth months in workplace.

Authors David Leonhardt and Stuart A. Thompson listed  every single lie the leader has said since taking office six months ago. They say Trump started their administration with a 40-day lying streak, only managing to go fib-free for the first time on March 1 .

They set a traditional bar for what constitutes a rest, but say Trump’ s “ long pattern of using untruths to serve his purposes, being a businessman and politician, means that their statements are not simply careless errors. ”

As this Twitter post points out: The font in the article is very, very small.

“ I wasn’ t keen on Iraq. I didn’ t want to go into Iraq, ” states the very first Trump quote listed posted on Jan. 21.   The latest one particular, dated June 21 is  “ Right now, we are one of the highest-taxed nations in the world. ”

Yes, we know. It’ s extremely likely Trump will be adding to this particular list while you’ re going through this collection.

In the meantime, take a look back and at some of the more egregious falsehoods made by the president:

  •   January. 25: “ Now, the target audience was the biggest ever. But this crowd was massive. Look how long back it goes. This audience was massive. ”

  • March 22: “ NATO, obsolete, because it doesn’ t cover terrorism. They fixed that. ”

  • April 18: “ The particular fake media goes, ‘ Jesse Trump changed his stance upon China. ’ I haven’ capital t changed my stance. ”

  • May 4: “ Nobody cares about my tax return except for the reporters. ”

The particular 20-something illustrator told HuffPost that will Krysteen’ s experiences are based on her own life, though the character is a little a lot more dramatic and comfortable in her skin.  

“ Krysteen recognizes that the girl can’ t be perfect all the time and is OK with that, ” she said. “ There are so many expectations for ladies on how to live and be, but the girl knows that life isn’ t that neat. ”

Plus, she said, striving for the perfect life can be stressful.

“ Instead, Krysteen’ s just out there here living her best lifestyle! ” the artist said.

Planet’s Dumbest Burglar Loses His Jeans, Then Nearly Knocks Himself Out there


That’ s gotta hurt ― physically and psychologically.  

Palm Beach County Sheriff’ s Office  says this surveillance footage that it released shows two burglars entering an unlocked car parked in a Florida driveway earlier Sunday.

They will stole coins, a phone charger and a stethoscope during the Wellington raid before fleeing when a car approached.

But the get away wasn’ t so easy for one of them. His pants fell down,   causing him to crash headfirst into the door of his escape car so hard that he sits stunned for several seconds.  

Here’ s the unforgettable sequence:  

“ Don’ t be caught with your pants down, ” the sheriff’ h department warned.   “ Locking mechanism your cars. ”

The suspects have not yet been identified, but one of them likely does not have any belt and a bump on his head.

O, Michael Phelps Is Racing A real Shark On TV


Michael Phelps, it seems, has lived at least one time of his life like Shark 7 days.

In a plan dubbed “ Great Gold versus Great White, ” the 23-time Olympic gold medalist will be racing a shark as part of the Discovery Channel’ s annual weeklong celebration of cartilaginous fish. The showdown is placed to air July 23.  

“ A celebration so monumental no one has actually attempted it before, ” scans a press release. “ The world’ s most decorated athlete takes on the ocean’ s most efficient predator: Phelps V Shark —   the race is on! ”

While Phelps is known for his superhuman, made-for-swimming wingspan, great white sharks can grow up to 15 feet in length  and reach speeds up to 35 mph  (they generally sail at around 5 mph, though). Phelps’ fastest swim was clocked in by ESPN at six mph, for comparison.  

Still, we have a few questions. Does the shark know the parameters of a race, for example? Will there be a protective cage of types involved? Will Phelps wear flippers in order to make things a little more even? Can the shark actually agree to this particular? What??

Shark Week will return to Discovery Funnel the week of July 23.

There is A Fancy Masquerade Ball To get Dogs And It Did Not Disappoint


There were no fashion faux  paws  here.

Some of Washington, D. Chemical. ’ s most dapper canines strutted their stuff for the 30th Annual Bark Ball on Saturday night while raising money for a local animal welfare organization (and taking the doggone cutest pictures).

The black-tie gala, which benefited the Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA), featured a masquerade theme that allowed guests to create their canine companions as their supper dates.

Not a group to disappoint, the canines were seen wearing their finest coats — as well as adorable bow ties, tutus, hats and at least one mask.

Insider photos posted to social media showed guests of all shapes, dimensions, and breeds.

By the end from the night, an event spokesperson, reached by HuffPost, boasted that they had elevated more than $700, 000. They also received a record-breaking 1, 200 visitors, which included former Sens. Bob (R-Kan. ) and Elizabeth Dole (R-N. C. ).

That money raised will go towards helping “ protect animals, assistance families, and advocate for optimistic change to create a world where all of the animals can thrive, ” the dog welfare group said.

I guess humans know how to toss a good ball after all.
