Spend the night in Foster's No Worries Motel

It's music festival season, especially in Finland. Which means you'll need a place to crash after the last band finishes their encore. Enter, The Fosters No Worries Motel. Only available in Finland, mind you. And it's not a motel so much as a few crash pads on the concert grounds, in partnership with AirBnB but still.

ELLE Australia cover shows Nicole Trunfio breastfeeding

Nicole Trunfio's Elle Australia cover shows her actually nursing her son Zion Clark. It was an unplanned moment, as Zion Clark was already there for the photoshoot, posing with mom as she wore Prada and her winning smile. But then Zion was hungry and Nicole stepped off the set to feed him.

Twitter, Facebook and all those other social media platforms don't specifically exist to give you warm fuzzy feelings when confronted with a cat doing something cute.

Juice billboard declares: "Once you go black....."

The trendy black bottle for fruit juices that taste good but are less than appetizing to look at has reached the USA. While German based True Fruits sold their black bottle with the idea of beauty on the inside, which offended some readers, USA based Juice (served here) decided to take another route.

Atlanta electronic billboard hijacked to show Goatse

FortaCloud adds lingerie clad woman to hosting offer on twitter = instant retweets

At first glance the image of a woman in lingerie draped across a bed staring seductively at the camera seems so misplaced in a tweet about discounted hosting that one suspects the social media manager slipped the wrong image into the tweet by mistake.
