7-year old girl receives breast implants for Birthday

    Candice Ogden Foster A school girl At St Anthony's Primary School received a very special present from her mother for her birthday: a trip to China to undergo a breast augmentation surgery.

The 7-year old From Fulwood had been asking her parents constantly for the last two years, insisting she needed breast implants and begging for a surgery.

Her mother, Belinda, says she tried to convince Candice that her breasts would grow with time, but her daughter was “completely obsessed” with the idea of getting breast implants.
Following a psychiatrist’s advice, Ms Ogden Foster contacted dozens on clinics in the United States and Mexico, but none of them were willing to perform a breast augmentation surgery on such a young girl.

She finally found a clinic in the city of Hangzhou in China, where doctors carried out the operation.
Many people are denouncing the parents for allowing their daughter to undergo plastic surgery at such a young age, while others are blaming her psychiatrist for his recommendation.

Despite the critics, Belinda Ogden Foster says she did “what was best for her daughter” and insists that she has no regrets.

Woman expelled from Preston Restaurant for breastfeeding her dog in public

Although the manager says she was expelled because the Restaurant has a no animal policy, Jean Bellenger 66, claims the restaurant manager specifically expelled her because she was breastfeeding in public, a legal right in the UK explained her lawyer, John O’Keefe.
“The law clearly specifies that a mother shall be entitled to breast feed in any location of a place of public accommodation, resort or amusement wherein the mother is otherwise permitted,” he told reporters.
“Whether she is breastfeeding her 8-month-old son, a horse or a chimpanzee is irrelevant,” he added.
Although Miss Albright says she covered herself and sat far away from other customers, owner Pikunni Takanina claims many of his customers have complained and were indisposed by the scene.

“One old lady passed out and had to leave in an ambulance,” said one eyewitness to reporters.

“When I realized it wasn’t a baby but a puppy that was sucking on her tits, I started puking all over myself,” explained another customer.

 Shock Report Reveals That Most Middle Aged Cyclists Are Closet Homosexuals

It’s a conundrum that has puzzled both experts and laymen for years – why do seemingly normal middle aged men spend a large part of their free time dressed in tight Lycra while staring at other men’s bottoms? Well now a new study has revealed the answer – they are mainly closet homosexuals.

The study authors from The University Of Central Lancashire, sent out a confidential survey to over 1,000 cyclists in the Preston area – middle aged men in Lycra – asking a series of probing questions about their taste in clothes, music, theatre and film. “The data we got back was clear cut”, said Professor Keith Lee who headed up the study, “The number of fans of musical theatre, Kylie Minogue, Shirley Bassey, Liza Minnelli, Abba and Bet Lynch off Coronation Street was striking. Skinny jeans ownership was also off the scale. If these aren’t clear signs of batting for the other side, I don’t know what are.”

One cyclist from Walton Le Dale who asked not to be named said “I’m admitting to nothing, but where else would you get the chance to wear skin tight luminous Lycra shorts with a padded crotch, and cop an eyeful of muscular flexing buttock around the Guild Wheel without anyone thinking anything of it? And even being at the front of the pack and getting chased is quite a thrill. Everyone knows the score but when we stop for coffee, we talk about beer,cars tits and other manly stuff. It’s a game.”

We drove to Eccleston to ask Tour De France winner Sir Bradley Wiggins for his comments, but a spokesperson said he was away at a Judy Garland tribute weekend.

Teenager Arrested For Selling Lettuce to Desperate Vegans in Preston

A 19 year old from Blackburn was arrested last night after being caught green fingered selling salad to what the police described as ‘desperate individuals’ on a street corner in Preston.
Preston’s large vegan population combined with the recent shortage of salad as a result of poor weather on the continent, has driven individuals to seek alternatives ways of getting their vegetable fix. Sgt Jeff Sole of Lancs Police said, ‘This is becoming a big problem now. We believe a large amount of salad has been smuggled into the country from South America. The problem is that this stuff is not normal salad it is super strength stuff that has been grown specifically to get vunerable salad lovers hooked. We advise anyone who is offered any sort of veg to decline and to contact the Police immediately’.

This is because women apparently need more space to get in and out, as well as extra space for loading and unloading.

Woman crashed motorhome using cruise control while making cup of tea

A woman crashed her new luxury motorhome at 40mph after putting on the cruise control and getting up to make a cup of tea, a court heard today.
Maria Antonia Smith had spent £45,000 on the second-hand van and was driving it for the first time when the accident happened.
Preston magistrates heard how MrsSmith, 62, of Cadley Causeway Fulwood had spent her life savings on the four-year-old, four-berth vehicle.
But two days later it was written off when it veered out of control and hit a tree on A6 nr Forton
Pleading guilty to careless and reckless driving, Mrs Smith, a retired shoe maker, stunned magistrates by saying she had been confused by what cruise control actually meant.
I thought it was like an autopilot that you get on airplanes,” she said.
I turned it on at what I thought was a sensible 40mph, then stepped away from the driver seat into the back of the motorhome to make a cup of tea.
“I presumed that cruise control worked with the sat nav to negotiate the roads safely. Imagine my surprise when, no sooner had I flicked the switch on the kettle that we hit a tree at 40mph. Luckily I was unhurt because I was thrown on to the sofa.
Mrs Smith recieved a 2 year driving ban and £1000 fine

A spokeswoman for Pulse and said: "Our target customers are couples and our stores are specially designed to create a modern, spacious and female friendly atmosphere for couples to shop together.
