1. Ho ho ho. Merry Christmas. Coming straight out of the little box on today’s advent calendar, are: BAUBALLS, more commonly known as, testicle ornaments for your Christmas tree.
These lovely little numbers come in a range of colours and styles, suitable for any Christmas theme. You can invest in Rudolph’s furry balls, or Snowman balls (brrrr), even the big man himself, Santa, has made his balls available for purchase.
And here’s the best part – it’s all for a good cause. British ad agency Fallon is selling bauballs for the benefit Orchid, a male cancer charity and also to raise awareness amongst men of the signs of testicular cancer.
Thanks Hurricane Vanessa.

5. Over the weekend, singer and television presenter, Brian McFadden decided to share his thoughts about domestic violence with his 230,000 Twitter followers. Here is what he said:
McFadden has (understandably, unsurprisingly and quite rightly) been slammed for his insensitive remark. The chief executive of Domestic Violence Victoria, Fiona McCormack, said that broadcasting such a message was “irresponsible”, especially considering that McFadden is father to two young girls.
7. Would you wear it? Jessica Biel stepped out for the premiere of her new movie, Playing For Keeps, in what appears to be an arm sling. A very fancy, expensive, Versace arm sling. We wonder if anyone asked if they could borrow a texta to sign the cast underneath it? Take a look…
