holy crap! shamwow guy arrested for beating a prostitute!!

life is sweet... oh so gloriously, sham-wowwy sweet...

MARCH 27--Meet Vince Shlomi. He's probably better known to you as the ShamWow Guy, the ubiquitous television pitchman who has been phenomenally successful peddling absorbent towels and food choppers. Shlomi, 44, was arrested last month on a felony battery charge following a violent confrontation with a prostitute in his South Beach hotel room. According to an arrest affidavit, Shlomi met Sasha Harris, 26, at a Miami Beach nightclub on February 7 and subsequently retired with her to his $750 room at the lavish Setai hotel. Shlomi told cops he paid Harris about $1000 in cash after she "propositioned him for straight sex." Shlomi said that when he kissed Harris, she suddenly "bit his tongue and would not let go." Shlomi then punched Harris several times until she released his tongue. The affidavit, a copy of which you'll find here, notes that during the 4 AM fight Harris sustained facial fractures and lacerations all over her face (she is pictured here in mug shots snapped following busts in 2008 and 2005). After freeing his tongue, a bleeding Shlomi ran to the Setai lobby, where security summoned cops. Harris refused to cooperate with officers, who recovered $930 from her purse. "Both parties had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from their persons," police reported. In a brief telephone interview, Harris declined to answer TSG questions about her run-in with Shlomi, though she did say she is considering a lawsuit against the pitchman. Asked if she worked as a hooker, Harris declined comment. As seen in the below mug shot, Shlomi was also injured during the fracas and, court records show, was treated at Mount Sinai Medical Center. While Shlomi and Harris were both arrested for felony aggravated battery, prosecutors this month declined to file formal charges against the combatants. Police records list Shlomi's occupation as "Marketing," but make no mention of his affiliation with the ShamWow or the Slap Chop, both of which sell for $19.95 (plus shipping and handling). 

Thanks, Dave!!

Rory McInnes did some of his own decorating at his family home... by painting a 60ft penis on the roof of his parents house. His parents Andy and Clare were delighted a year ago when builders finished a new roof on their $2 million house, but Rory, 18, had just watched a documentary about Google Earth — which lets internet users view satellite pictures — and decided to make the property stand out.

He grabbed a can of white paint and climbed up to the roof, where he spent half an hour painting the giant fallus on the roof of his parents home. For the next year only Rory knew about the giant manhood on the roof near Hungerford, Berks, but his secret was blown when a helicopter pilot spotted it, and hovered so his passenger could take photos.

Andy, the father of the trouble-maker, thought it was a joke when British newspaper The Sun contacted him about the painting. He responded with: “It’s an April Fool’s joke, right? There’s no way there’s a 60ft phallus on top of my house.” He then spoke to all four of his kids demanding answers, and when he phoned Rory — who was traveling in Brazil — he burst out laughing, saying: “Oh, you’ve found it then!”

This picture of a giant fallus is regarded as a massive fertility symbol, and couples often have sex near pictures of this giant appendage in the hope of conceiving. Rory’s mother Clare said: “We don’t want any more children, so the idea of sleeping under a giant fertility symbol is rather worrying.” Rory's father also commented that: “We don’t want to lie in bed at night and hear couples at it above us. When Rory gets home he will be given a scrubbing brush and white spirit and he can go and scrub it off.”
