Here’s a new use for that leftover Christmas Tree next year: let your local lion or tiger have it as his own “Yuletide catnip:”

Remember, if the Big Kitty wants to rub himself all over your tree and shred it, you let him.

MEANWHILE: Learn about the sponsoring charity, Big Cat Rescue.

Welcome to life in the 21st century:

Woman says her fake penis got her fired

A northeastern Pennsylvania woman is suing a South Jersey-based maker of frozen treats and other snack foods, claiming that she was wrongfully fired because she wore a prosthetic penis to work.

Pauline Davis, 45, wore the device to the J&J Snack Foods plant in Moosic, Lackawanna County, while she contemplated a gender change, according to a federal civil-rights complaint filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Scranton. She confided in several co-workers about the device, and someone told management, according to the complaint.

She subsequently was fired from her job as a packer/line inspector. Her termination, she claims, was discriminatory because a male co-worker who wore female clothing and prostheses and took hormone treatments was not fired nor disciplined.

Actually, I do think she has a case, based on disparate treatment and the fact the… unit was concealed under her clothes and not causing a blatant disruption at work.

And doesn’t the Brotherly Love Pennsylvania is famous for apply to women with plastic “accessories?” Strap-on wearers have feelings, too, y’know.

Of course, if this had happened here in California, she’d be a culture hero and Gloria Allred would already have her on cameras and booked on The View. In fact, in San Francisco, and especially in the Castro, an artificial whoopie wand  would have been considered normal casual business attire. 😉

“But this ain’t California. It’s Moosic, and we’ll have none o’that here. Ya hear?”

Like I said, welcome to the 21st century.

The Giant Rat of Sumatra has moved to New York City!

It may be the size of a small dog, but this is not the sort of creature many of us would fancy petting.

What appears to be a giant rat was allegedly found dead in a Foot Locker shoe shop in the Bronx, New York.

Scooped on a shovel in the Fordham store’s stockroom, the massive brown and white rodent measures around three feet

The picture was uploaded to Twitter by user @thegoodfella_, who believes it was snapped by a friend last autumn.

Experts think the rodent is a Gambian pouched rat, a fairly common pet that can grow to up to three feet.

It is not the first time the giant breed has been spotted in New York City.

Of course they’ve been seen before; the Occupy movement spent months at Zucotti Park.

I can’t wait for the inevitable SyFy “original” movie: “Sewers of New York: Mega-Rat vs. the Giant Alligators.”

With a cameo by Mansquito.
