Tattoos, ELP, Robbery, Emergency Bra & Feud …

Went this week to check out the annual Tattoo Festival, which interests me photographically and depresses me otherwise. Each year the things people do to themselves seem to get more and more extreme. Or I’m just getting older. 🙂

Preparing for another tattoo

Some of the tattoos were really beautiful and creative but many were ridiculous. And when paired with bizarre body mutilations, it was enough for me to feel like I really needed a shower when I left there.

In cleaner news, Julia Roberts was in town to promote her chic flick “Eat Love Pray”. To quote Bill Maher, “If you dragged your man to “Eat Pray Love” this summer, he gets to take you to a movie called “Football Jerk-Off Nap”.

I absolutely love these criminals: A gang of thieves armed with a powerful vacuum cleaner that sucks cash from supermarket safes has struck for the 15th time in France. The burglars broke into their latest store near Paris and drilled a hole in the “pneumatic tube” that siphons money from the checkout to the strong-room. They then sucked rolls of cash totaling $100,000 from the safe without even having to break its lock. Police said the gang — dubbed the Vacuum Burglars — always raid Monoprix supermarkets and have hit 15 of the stores branches around Paris in the past four years. The burglars broke into the store through an emergency exit door armed with a large drill and a vacuum cleaner.

Emergency Bra

In Case of Emergency, Please Remove Your Bra

The Emergency Bra is a protective garment that transforms into two respiratory face masks in case of an emergency.
Caught in a disaster? You’d better hope you’re wearing the Emergency Bra. Simply unsnap the bright red bra, separate the cups, and slip it over your head — one cup for you, and one for your friend.

Had another great French TV experience this week. While watching a French version of Family Feud, my jaw dropped when I heard “Richard Dawson” state the category to the contestants: “Name something that indicates the size of a man’s penis”. Hands, feet, nose, car and bulge were all given as answers although studies prove that hands, feet and nose are not at all correlated.
