Homer Glue Globule?

An inch long piece of dried glue that vaguely resembles soft hearted Simpson’s patriarch Homer Simpson is attracting bids of over $2,600 on eBay. Seller Christopher Herbert noticed its uncanny resemblance to the balding character, and immediately listed it on the auction site as the ‘missing piece’ in any Simpsons fan’s collection. To help sell the globule – which shares many of Homer’s attributes including his goggly eyes and inane gurn – Christopher wrote a glowing sales pitch. ‘This is a true to life likeness of Homer Simpson’s head made naturally by an overflowing tube of Uhu glue! ‘It is very small – about a centimeter from the bottom of his neck to the top of his head but it does have Homer’s trademark bald head, big eyes and grinning mouth. ‘The missing piece in any Simpson enthusiast’s collection.” w/ photos

Scratching Your Ankle Feels As Good As Sex?

The old phrase ‘You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours’ may need updating. For the ankle has overtaken the back as the most satisfying spot to scratch, according to researchers at the Wake Forest School of Medicine in North Carolina. In the study, reported in the British Journal of Dermatology, healthy volunteers were made to itch on the forearm, ankle and back by rubbing them with cowhage, a plant with tiny hairs that irritate the skin… Professor Francis McGlone, a member of the International Forum for the Study of Itch, said: ‘It was interesting that the ankle was the itchiest site and that the most pleasure came from scratching it, because the back has been well-known as a preferred site for scratching.” w/ photos
