    The Daily Caller ^ | February 25, 2014 | Eric Owens
    A member of Hawaii’s House of Representatives is criticizing an ambitious, federally funded sex education program currently in use in 12 of the state’s public schools. The pilot curriculum, called “Pono Choices,” targets 11- to 13-year-old students. (“Pono” is a Hawaiian word that basically means “good” or “moral.”) Its creators include the University of Hawaii and, of course, Planned Parenthood. Rep. Bob McDermott, a Hawaii Republican, claims that the curriculum is “not age appropriate and not consistent with state policy” for a slew of reasons, reports EAGnews.org. McDermott’s biggest complaint is that the curriculum is wrong on a pretty major...

    **SNIP** According to ABC News, the results found that women with bigger backsides tend to have lower levels of cholesterol and are more likely to produce hormones to metabolize sugar. Therefore, women with big butts are less likely to have diabetes or heart problems. And having a big butt requires an excess of Omega 3 fats, which have been proven to catalyze brain development. The researchers also found that the children born to women with wider hips are intellectually superior to the children of slimmer, less curvy mothers.

    Next time you pick up a vanilla candy, think twice. A chemical compound used in vanilla flavored foods and scents comes from the butt of a beaver. Castoreum comes from a beaver's castor sacs, located between the pelvis and base of the tail. Due to its proximity to the anal glands, the slimy brown substance is often mixed with gland secretions and urine. "I lift up the animal's tail," Joanne Crawford, a wildlife ecologist at Southern Illinois University told National Geographic. "I’m like, 'Get down there, and stick your nose near its bum.'" "People think I'm nuts," she added. "I...

Padge Victoria Windslowe was in court in Philadelphia on Thursday, a day after she was arrested while preparing to host what police described as a "pumping party" at which she planned to deliver more injections to customers. Police said that when officers arrested Windslowe, they also seized heavy-duty glue, needles, gloves and bottles -- items officials said were to be...

    Silicone implants that enlarge the buttocks sound risque, but they're also illicit and potentially deadly. A woman accused of offering just that service was recently arrested in a downtown D.C. hotel, according to court records. Federal authorities say women wanted 45-year-old Kimberly Smedley to give them injections of liquid silicone to "increase the size and shape" of their buttocks. Smedley usually performed the injections in hotel rooms and was arrested on Oct. 11 at the JW Marriott near 14th Street NW and Pennsylvania Avenue, according to an application for a search warrant to search items she had with her when...

The Israeli intelligence agency has sent four members of its kidon assassination squad to this country, to join fifteen other handpicked katsas, its relentless field agents. Their brief is to "disable" any of the "close to 50" British Muslims that the extremist Islamic group, Al-Muhajiroun, last week boasted were ready to carry out suicide missions similar to the one in Tel Aviv. Al-Muhajiroun spokesman, Asif Butt, said the 50 were "primed and ready to go". The threat was sufficient...

    THERE are a few exceptions which will always stand out, but most female stars yearn for a diminutive derriere. However, it appears that the small and slender bottom is very much a recent trend after an archaeological discovery revealed how Stone Age pin-ups were far from size zero. Ancient carvings depicting the female form 15,000 years ago reveal that prehistoric women were revered for their curvaceous bodies and prominent buttocks. The most popular were the cave-dwellers’ equivalents of Kylie Minogue (pictured), whose renowned behind is the world’s most popular posterior. Historians claim that the carvings – found at a site...

    Never one to let his work fall between the cracks, a British bum researcher has published two scientific formulas for the perfect posterior. David Holmes, a high-profile psychologist from Manchester Metropolitan University, says the female behind can be assessed using the equation: (S+C) x (B+F)/T - V, which takes into account shape, circularity of buttocks, "bounce factor," firmness, texture of skin, and vertical ratio. Proportion, calculated by dividing waist measurement by hip measurement, is also significant. The closer the ratio is to 0.7, the more likely the woman's derriere is "sexily proportioned."

His foreign minister, Luis Ernesto Derbez, went further and called it stupid and underhanded.

    A WOMAN WHO was branded with part of Con Edison's logo after falling onto a burning hot Manhattan manhole cover is suing the utility. A lawsuit filed yesterday in Manhattan Supreme Court accuses Con Ed of allowing the manhole cover at E. 13th St. and Second Ave., to become excessively hot through a buildup of steam under it. Elizabeth Wallenberg, 27, suffered "excruciating pain, disability and grotesque cosmetic disfigurement," according to the suit, which seeks unspecified damages. The fall left Wallenberg with a "C" and "O" and part of the manhole grid burned onto her back, just above the buttocks,...

    It's 10 minutes before the show goes live on the air, and nobody predicted the developing dilemma. The show's gossip reporter is having second thoughts about dropping his pants on live television to have his buttocks read by local television psychic Professor Jose Miranda. What about reading it over my underwear?" asks the reporter, clearly upset and looking very serious. "I can't see the lines. How do you expect me to give a reading?" the oracle answers, just as serious. "I have to see the lines." Following an ardent debate, the producers of the phenomenally popular and raunchy late-night talk...

    SAN FRANCISCO - In the strange world of Schwarzenegger-era politics, it seems only fitting that the Republican governor, who rode to fame making tough-guy action films and who's been accused by dozens of women of being a serial groper, could get away with standing before a state women's conference and boast that he had angered a group of nurses because he was "always kicking their butts." Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger made the remarks in Long Beach last week as he opened the first day of the California Gov.'s Conference on Women and Families, an annual gathering hosted this year by his...

    .Lo and Beyonce can take another bow. The booty-shaking stars have shaped the newest generation of mannequins, with hundreds of well-rounded plastic backsides appearing in shop windows across New York. Bootylicious figures clad in tight low-rise jeans have spilled from the city's street fashion stores into more established labels. "It's absolutely the trend," said Dwight Critchfield, creative director for mannequin firm Goldsmith. "These mannequins look great, and there is a real sex appeal about them." The recent pop culture fixation on large bottoms has been around since at least 1992, when rapper Sir Mix-a-Lot scored a hit with "Baby Got...
