Boner of the Day

Boner Candidate Preview August 18, 2016

Boner Candidate #1: BIG TOUGH HUNTER

An American hunter who impaled a black bear in Canada with a custom-made spear before leaving the animal to die has disgusted wildlife and animal activists — who charged the killing as inhumane. Josh Bowmar — a physical trainer from Ohio — was on a hunting trip in an area near Edmonton, Alberta, in May when he hurled a spear fashioned with a camera about 40 feet into a bear rummaging for food in a trash can. Bowmar didn’t retrieve the animal’s body from the woods until the following day because it was dark and raining, he told the CBC — but claimed the bear had “died immediately.”

Boner Candidate #2: SHE DOESN’T LIKE CLOTHES

A mother in China has been blasted for taking her naked daughter shopping. The woman was spotted with the child at a supermarket in Xinyang City, central China’s Henan province on August 13, reports the People’s Daily Online. Pictures of the young girl, thought to be around two-years-old, have caused outrage on the country’s social media sites. The young girl was spotted in a supermarket with her mother and was photographed by shocked onlookers.

Boner Candidate #3: THE SOUL OF FRANCE REQUIRES THAT YOU SHOW A LITTLE SKIN

The debate is now so heated in France that one could be forgiven for assuming that the burkini — the full-body bathing suit worn by some Muslim women — had invaded French beaches. Five towns have banned them. Three more are in the process of doing so. Prime Minister Manuel Valls supported the prohibitions on Wednesday, calling the garment part of “the enslavement of women.” In fact it would be challenging to spot a burkini on most French beaches, and even some of the mayors considering the bans admit to never having seen one.

Boner Candidate #4: IN EGYPT WE WILL NOT TOLERATE FAT NEWS

Most Egyptian journalists have had to watch their tongues and tone down their reporting over the past three years to keep their jobs under a military-dominated government. Now, the state is ordering some women working as television anchors to practice a similar restraint with their weight. Earlier this week, Safaa Hegazy, the director of state-run Egyptian radio and television, barred eight anchorwomen from appearing on the air for a month, saying they were overweight, the state-owned Al-Ahram news website confirmed. Ms. Hegazy ordered the women to go on a diet during their suspensions, Al-Ahram said.

Boner Candidate #5: HEY, SHE WAS COMING ON TO ME.

Talk about being all up in someone’s grill. A man in Dayton, Ohio, is facing indecency charges after a witness reported seeing him attempt to have sex with the front grill of a van parked on the street. Officers responding to a call Tuesday evening found the suspect, 35-year-old Michael Henson, wearing only a pair of black shorts and black shoes, according to NBC4i.com, which cited a police report. Henson was taken into custody and put in the back of a squad car while officers spoke to a female witness.

Boner Candidate #6: PLEASE DO NOT PAINT THE BIRDS

Birds don’t need your help to look fabulous. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission is asking the public to stop painting birds, specifically the white ibis. The bird is protected in the state of Florida and painting them is not only illegal, it’s cruel and can cause serious damage. Last July, the FWC had to remind Florida residents to also stop painting tortoises and turtles. The white/orange ibis pictured above was taken to Busch Wildlife Sanctuary and is expected to recover.
