Stupid Ads For Unnecessary Feminine Products Of The Day

Check out these ads for a new Playtex wipes. This is what happens when ad agencies try to get creative with products that don't really need creative advertising. The wipes are for post-boinkal cleanup, but I'm guessing this is yet another product that women don't need to use on their women-parts despite what advertisers say. Can you say bacterial vaginosis?

I'm all for pervy juvenile sex puns, but these made me feel kinda dirty.

Woman's Uncontrollable Sex Drive Caused By Rabies

This is a story all about a 28-year-old woman in India who everyone just assumed was a nympho. But then she died. Turned out she had rabies.

Complaining to doctors that she was constantly aroused, often with no stimulation, she was referred to a doctor at the Sri Gokulam Hospital. There, staff discovered that the source of her infection was a small bite from a puppy a few months earlier. She died four days later.

Fear of water caused by paralysis of the swallowing muscles is a relatively well known symptom of the disease but hypersexuality is another under-reported but not uncommon symptom of rabies. This occurs when the rabies causes inflammation in the brain.

Pet vaccination programs have been largely successful in staving off the disease in the U.S. But around the world between 55,000 and 70,000 people die of rabies each year.

A medical examiner listed the cause of death as cardiac arrhythmia caused by ingesting a large number of drugs.

ORVILLE REDENBACHER

Millions came to know Orville Redenbacher, founder of the popcorn company that bears his name, through his folksy television commercials.

Claude Fran├žois was a French pop singer in the 1960s who had a hit with an adaptation of Trini Lopez's folk song "If I Had a Hammer."

JIM MORRISON

On July 3, 1971, Morrison was found dead in his bathtub in Paris. He reportedly had dried blood around his mouth and nose and bruising on his chest, suggesting a massive hemorrhage brought on by tuberculosis. The official report listed the cause of death as heart failure.
