Posted By Staff

Date: July 22nd, 2014

530fattiesYUBA CITY – A Facebook page created to criticize people about their weight is generating controversy in the Yuba-Sutter region.

530 Fatties appears to be created by someone who lives within the local 530 area code, and featured photos of overweight or obese people in public without their permission. With those photos are words mocking the subjects’ weight.

The page was taken down at some point on Monday after CBS13 began looking into it after several people reached out to us.

Jessi Lynn Howell, 18, is still mortified after discovering a picture of herself posted on 530 Fatties.  More

She began her modeling career at the age of 14 but quickly grew too tall and heavy for commercial work.

Amanda, from Idaho, then discovered a subculture of short men who love being with super-sized women.  More

mother uglyChina – When 63-year-old Ding Liang was found crying on a street in eastern China’s Hangzhou city, her story attracted widespread media coverage. The poor woman had traveled five hours from her village to meet her son and his newborn child. Unfortunately, the son refused to see her for the strangest of reasons – because she’s too ugly!

Ding told Hsin that she was from a village outside Yuyao city, in the same province as Hangzhou. Years ago, her son moved to the city to pursue a college education – he did well at school, landed a job at an upmarket car dealership and got married. When Ding attended the wedding dressed like a peasant, the son was apparently mortified and too embarrassed to admit his relationship to her.

“But when he rang me the other day to say that he had had a baby, I wanted to visit him and bring my grandchild some gifts.”

When Ding announced her intention to visit her son, he simply asked her not to come. “He said I would embarrass him because I’m too ugly.”  More

He was hospitalized for 10 days and in an induced coma for five days of that. His right hand was amputated as a result.  More

Michelle Obama eyes ‘talking shopping carts’

Posted By Staff

Date: July 18th, 2014

cartsWASHINGTON, D.C. – First, Michelle Obama seized control of your child’s school lunch and made it “healthy.” Now, the First Lady wants to change the way you buy groceries.

A new 80-page report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture explains that federal bureaucrats hope to use a variety of tools to modify the way Americans select food items at the supermarket.

The stated goal is steer consumers toward fruits and vegetables – and away from sugar- and fat-laden items. The plan is in line with “Michelle Obama’s stated second term agenda to ‘impact the nature of food in grocery stores,’” reports FreeBeacon.com.

According to FreeBeacon.com, the federal busybodies want to provide food-stamp shoppers with “incentives” for making healthy food choices – such as discounts or free movie tickets – and even talking shopping carts that will notify them when they’ve selected enough healthy items.  More

flyswatterKazakhstan - A lawyer is facing up to 10 years in jail in Kazakhstan after he pulled out a flyswatter and used it to slap a judge.

Evgeniy Tankov, 35, from Karaganda, had been hired to act for his client in an inheritance case and was not happy with the way the case was going.

CCTV footage shows the lawyer come up to the judge and saying: “Let’s not hang about arguing the law here, let’s decide this with flyswatters.”

He then brandishes a flyswatter, and uses it to slap the judge for a while who at first sits there patiently ignoring it as he is hit once, twice and then a third time.

But Artem Ibragilov, 39, the lawyer for the other side was clearly not prepared to sit by. He stands up and punches Tankov. Seconds later the judge comes round and starts wrestling with Tankov as well.  More   Watch video at Nutty News Videos
