Penis whitening is a thing in Thailand because why not

There’s a new trend in Thailand that’s being erected, and it’s driving men nuts.

The Lelux Hospital has drawn 100 men a month for its unique penis whitening procedure.

Speaking to the AFP, Bunthita Wattanasiri, a manager for the Skin and Laser department at Lelux Hospital said “These days a lot of people are asking about it. We get around 100 clients a month, three to four clients a day.” Take note this is also the same hospital that has a “3D Vagina” procedure, wherein one’s own body fat is used to make a vagina more “full figured.”

The penis procedure costs THB 650 or roughly PHP 1,000 for five sessions. With that said, this is maybe why aliens won’t visit us.

If you haven’t been paying attention to international news, North Korea Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un has been bragging about his country’s military strength.

Strong military or not, they’re not immune to accidents, as details of damages from a failed missile test which hit one of their own cities has emerged.

North Korea launched a single Hwasong-12/KN17 intermediate-range ballistic missile in south Pyongyang. However, the missile failed immediately after launch and crashed in the northern city of Tokchon, causing considerable damage to what looks like an agricultural center.

Keep in mind that Kim Jong-un has alleged access to nuclear warheads, and this is what happens. Somewhere, Donald Trump is out there laughing.

17-year-old Supatra ‘Natty’ Sasuphan from Bangkok, Thailand suffers from the rare genetic condition Ambras Syndrome, which is popularly known as Werewolf Syndrome. The condition causes sufferers to grow excessive and thick hair on their face and bodies. It’s so rare, that only 100 cases have been documented.

Despite being bullied, Natty decided to embrace her condition. Almost a decade from winning the record, Natty has decided to regularly shave ever since getting married.

A limited edition Cherry Mobile president Duterte phone is a thing

Can the iPhone X curse and swear and wish a horrible death upon drug addicts and your Delawan enemies? This phone probably could.

A limited edition Cherry Mobile Duterte Flare J2S is currently being sold for PHP 5,000 on Shopee. The seller claims only 3,000 units were produced.

Esquire spoke with Cherry and the company confirmed that the phone is not for sale to the public.  Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque has released a statement on the issue, saying “The subject phones were gifts by the Office of the President for the holiday season. These ‘limited edition’ phones are intended as gifts by the Office of the President and conform with the designs of similar gift items.”

“These phones, however, are not for commercial sale. It is the hope of this Office that the recipients will treat the gifts not as objects for resale but as treasured mementos of a Presidency that cares.”

“Further questions on the matter may be referred to the Presidential Spokesperson. Thank you.”

No news yet if the phone has a special EJK feature.
