Smallest Penis Comes to Brooklyn

The fact that a tiny penis competition has become an annual tradition is a testament both to the power of the micropenis and the pull of a spectacle. But, here we are—Kings County Saloon in Bushwick will host the third annual Smallest Penis In Brooklyn Pageant in June. 

Brokelyn reports that this year's Fun Time Small Time show will take place on June 13th, and is expected to draw in little penises and the people who love them from all over the country. Luckily, Kings County moved to bigger digs last July, so next year's competition will hopefully resemble a sweaty ballsack a little less. Plus, there's a good chance the new spot will not have the same sewage problems boasted by the old Kings County Bar (see last year's coverage for details). 
Kings County has not yet responded to request for comment, but according to the bar's website, you can email them for advance tickets ($5, $10 at the door). They've also got VIP tables, complete with "penis kitten service and backstage passes," available on request. There's no information available regarding prospective contestants, but peruse all our previousphoto galleries to see what kind of penises are welcome here. Penis!

Anti gay Russia Unleashes Assaults at Eurovision Song Contest over”bearded lady”

IT’S the place where homophobia goes to die - but not this year.
After taking home the coveted title at the Eurovision Song Contest, Austria’s “bearded lady”, aka Conchita Wurst, has copped a slew of abuse for her less than traditional performing style.
In a bitter aftertaste, the singer’s stunning victory has been branded “the end of Europe” by Russia’s anti-gay lobby.
The hirsute alter ego of Austrian performer Tom Neuwirth took out the competition in Copenhagen with Rise Like a Phoenix, an anthem reminiscent of classic James Bond theme tunes.
Social media went into overdrive overnight after BBC Eurovision’s page posted in honour of the “gender neutral” performer.
But in an unexpected twist, users instead posted shocking grievances against the performer, calling to “wake up Hitler” and “kill it with fire”.
“I believe in future without “things” like these”, wrote one user.
“Go and kill yourself”, said another.
“The most messed up thing I’ve seen on TV. I can already tell the Eurovision 2015 winner. It’ll be a song about love between an old woman with a 6-year-old boy and they’ll end up kissing on stage. Easy win. Or a gay couple kissing. The world’s changing. Going so wrong.”
Among the posts were calls for the BBC to ensure homophobic abuse “is not tolerated”, but it took other users to step up in Conchita’s honour.
“I’m disgusted by the comments on this post honestly,” wrote Jordan Jon.
“Just when you think the future is getting better with LGBT, this comes up.”

But the “bearded lady” received a heroine’s homecoming in Vienna after winning the Eurovision Song Contest.
After the win, hundreds of excited fans gathered at Vienna’s International Airport to welcome Conchita — who was clutching her Eurovision trophy tightly — back to home soil.
But in Russia, some branded Wurst‘s win as an example of the West’s decadence.

After the victory, Russian state television broadcast a debate on Conchita, with anti-gay MP Vladmir Zhirinovsky calling the result “the end of Europe.”
“There is no limit to our outrage,” he said.
“It has turned wild. There are no more men or women in Europe, just it.”

The competition was marred by controversy over widespread persecution of gay people by Russia’s vocal anti-gay lobby, and its apparent sanctioning by the gonvernment.
Wurst’s inclusion adding oil to that fire even before the show; and during the final there was loud booing in the Copenhagen arena whenever Russia’s act received a vote. 
Afterward, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s vice-premier Dmitry Rogozin tweeted that the Eurovision result “showed supporters of European integration their European future — a bearded girl”.
The drag queen, who was initially written off as too provocative for some socially conservative countries, was the favourite to win the contest.

The act proved so popular that Austria was declared the winner after 34 of 37 countries had given their votes on Saturday evening.
After being announced as the winner, Wurst said: “This night is dedicated to everyone who believes in a future of peace and freedom.”
She added: “We are a unity and we are unstoppable”.
Conchita’s inclusion in the Eurovision Song Contest had earlier angered some of the more conservative nations.
In Russia, Belarus and Ukraine petitioners demanded that the 25-year-old drag artist be dropped from the competition, while the leader of Austria’s right-wing FPOe party called the act “ridiculous”.

“I have very thick skin,” Wurst told AFP. “It never ceases to amaze me just how much fuss is made over a little facial hair.”
Much like the title of her song, the singer on Friday rose to second place in the odds table after winning over viewers with her performance in Thursday’s semi-final.
Earlier in the week the frontrunner had been Armenia’s Aram MP3, who stirred controversy when it was reported that he had said Wurst’s lifestyle was “not natural” — a comment the stand-up comedian later claimed was a joke.
“I have to say that if it’s a joke it’s not funny ... but he apologised and that’s fine for me,” Wurst said.
Since the first votes were cast in 1956, Eurovision results have been closely intertwined with politics and the 2014 competition is no exception.
Audiences in Britain and France routinely complain that their countries suffer from a lack of European voting allies and tend to take the competition less seriously than the countries of the former eastern bloc that joined in the 1990s.
  “Everything could be political but we don’t really care, because we are artists and what we are doing is music,” said Lorent Idir from France’s Twin Twin.
The mainstream appeal of the Eurovision Song Contest has grown over the past two decades after strict rules on singing in the national language and performing with an orchestra were scrapped.
It has also benefitted from the popularity of TV talent shows, and several of this year’s artists have previously competed in programs like The X Factor.
And Australia’s love affair with the show was honored this year, with the inclusion of Jess Mauboy singing Sea of Flags as a special guest at the second semi-final.

A Vegan Hot Dog Eating Contest?


  Among those ready to snarf on this cool Austin, Texas, afternoon: A baby-faced, shaggy-locked, stoner-eyed teenager, wearing a neon yellow astronaut’s helmet, and a plush stuffed parrot on his shoulder; a young woman with electric blue hair, who tells one of the two emcees for the afternoon that her name is Anita Bonghit; and, towering above his foes, the returning champion, an enigmatic middle-aged film technician with a Cosmo Kramer haircut who competes under his nom de food “The Dog Hammer.”
Behind a long, Last Supper-ish table, topped with ketchup, mustard and Solo cups of water, stand the thirteen competitors in this year’s Vegan Hot Dog Eating Contest. Among those ready to snarf on this cool Austin, Texas, afternoon: A baby-faced, shaggy-locked, stoner-eyed teenager, wearing a neon yellow astronaut’s helmet, and a plush stuffed parrot on his shoulder; a young woman with electric blue hair, who tells one of the two emcees for the afternoon that her name is Anita Bonghit; and, towering above his foes, the returning champion, an enigmatic middle-aged film technician with a Cosmo Kramer haircut who competes under his nom de food “The Dog Hammer,” and who, when asked to identify the grossest thing he’s ever eaten, answers that he once ingested half a cheeseburger he found in the front seat of his fried’s car.
A DJ plays the Michael Buffer “Let’s get ready to rumble” track from the first Jock Jams album, and they’re off: The contestants begin to stuff their faces with as many vegan wiener dogs, in between egg-free, whey-free, all-vegan wiener buns, as they can, in the ten allotted minutes.
This is the ninth annual Vegan Hot Dog Eating Contest, and the fourth in a row to be held at the Fun Fun Fun Festival, a three day music-and-arts event in Austin’s Auditorium Shores park that this year featured performances by artists as diverse as Slayer, MGMT, Tenacious D, and Jurassic 5. Though the rules for the Vegan Hot Dog Contest are similar to the ones you probably know – entrants must eat as many dogs, and buns, as they can hold down, in ten minutes, and dunking the hot dogs in water is encouraged—this Austonian contest is not associated with the official Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, which takes place on New York’s Coney Island each Independence Day, and which has turned competitive eat-letes like Kobeyashi and Joey Chestnut into minor American celebrities for their wiener-gorging abilities.
No, the Vegan version of the contest is a local concoction – both in the sense that it was founded in Austin, and that it feels so representative of the city itself. There is something so Austin, referee and organizer Chris Ledesma told me, about a Vegan Hot Dog Eating Contest, and that rings true, at least for the “Keep Austin Weird” section of town. The driving concept cleverly turns on its head a piece of new Americana and modifies it for one of Austin’s progressive subcultures. The competitors themselves, haphazardly poached from hotdog lines at the festival, seemed to somehow epitomize the general Austin population, too: Stoners, burnouts, clean-cut college students, fun-loving European emigrants, hippies, and the bearded, bicycling, bandana-wearing uncleaned fringe were all represented.
And then, too, there were the oh-so-Austin condiments of the afternoon itself: a trio of fresh-faced cheerleaders (or “cheer-wieners”), galloping through the crowd with pompoms, leading a chant of “WIE-NERS! WIE-NERS! WIE-NERS!”; the ironic appropriation of the campy Jock Jams soundtrack; and the heartfelt dedication, by Ledesma, of the competition to his ailing mother, with a final request for the crowd to think of their own mothers at the festival, whether they’re “ listening to music, drinking beers, rolling on X, whatever: Make her proud.”
Microcosm or not, it turns out that Austin’s Vegan Hot Dog eating contest is part of a larger constellation of clever public theater. Ledesma is behind an Austin-based culture and arts organization called iLoveMikeLitt, named for co-founding artist Michael Litt (Ledesma promised me that “Michael Litt” is, indeed, the man’s birthname). The organization throws a series of cultural events aimed at spreading awareness of liberal political and social causes, including a veggie speed-dating night, a John Keynes-themed “mixed economy bar crawl,” and a Vegetarian vs. Meat-Eaters arm wrestling competition.
The point of these events, Ledesma says, is not to exclude meat-eaters and create a quinoa social bubble for vegans; rather, the events are meant to be inclusive, and to open up non-vegans and non-vegetarians to alternative dietary habits, if even for a meal. The Vegan Hot Dog Contest, for example, does not require that a participant be vegan, or even vegetarian; contestants were poached at random from food truck lines around the festival in the days leading up to the competition, and simply asked if they would consider the event. Vegan, vegetarian, or carnivore, all you need to be in order to participate in the Vegan Hot Dog Contest is hungry.
This year’s competition ended in something of a controversy, as the 96 hot dogs that Ledesma ordered were devoured at around the 8-minute mark, with two minutes remaining. The winners were declared to be those who had finished the most wieners at that point; and so it was that last year’s champion, “The Dog Hammer,” was victorious again, having eaten 9 vegan hot dogs in 8 minutes.
“It was disappointing,” the Dog Hammer (the nom de food of Dan Cofer, the technical director at Austin’s landmark Alamo Drafthouse movie theater) told me later in an email. “I knew I could have eaten at least two more. Mostly, I was still hungry.”
And yet, in the true Austin spirit, the Dog Hammer abides. When I asked him if he would return to Fun Fun Fun next year, to defend his vegan hot dog eating crown and attempt an unprecedented vegan hot dog eating three-peat, Cofer answered with two succinct words that could, perhaps, in some futuristic setting, work as an Austin city motto.
Would the Dog Hammer defend his title?
“Fuck yes,” the Dog Hammer said.

Julie Chen is getting a rude awakening about her racist remarks within the Big Brother house -- and then some.

Aaryn Gries is in for a rude awakening. As the latest contestant of Big Brother Season 15 to get voted out of the house on Thursday, Aug. 29, the Texan native was immediately confronted by host Julie Chen about her racist remarks within the Big Brother house -- and then some.
"Being Southern, it is a stereotype and I have said some things that have been taken completely out of context and wrong. I do not mean to ever come off racist," she said defending herself. "That is not me and I apologize to anyone I have offended for that."
In probably the first time in BB history, Gries, 22, was welcomed by several loud boos in the audience once exiting the house. Chen, 43, remained professional, simply reading off direct quotes from what Gries has specifically said during her first few weeks on the CBS show.
"Be careful what you say in the dark, you might not be able to see the b-tch," Gries previously said, referring to African-American contestantCandice Stewart; "Shut up, go make some rice," she said about Asian player Helen Kim; and "Nobody is going to vote for whoever that queer puts up," commenting on gay contestant, Andy Herren.
"I really feel bad that this is how it has been seen and how I've come across to people," Gries said before saying goodbye. "I don't want to seem like that person and I really do respect everyone in this game, although we have had some really hard times because we’re all fighting for our lives in the game."
Chen replied: "I hope after you watch the footage, you have a new perspective on things."
Indeed, Gries -- though headed to the jury house for now -- will be in for quite the shock once leaving the game after the show's season finale in late September. Unbeknownst to her, the reality star has been fired from her modeling agency job due to her racist and homophobic remarks, and her mother has even hired a publicist to help control the situa

Andy Cohen Does Not Feel Safe Broadcasting Miss Universe from Russia-So He Wont

From The Bilerico Project

Now here's a way to put some real skin in the game... Openly gay entertainer Andy Cohen will not return as the cohost of the Miss Universe pageant. The competition is being held in Russia for the first time later this year. Andy Cohen will not be taking his regular post as cohost of the 2013 Miss Universe competition, which will be held on Nov. 9 at the Crocus City Hall in Moscow, Russia. The Watch What Happens Live star told his friend and pageant cohost of the past two years, E! News' Giuliana Rancic, that he turned it down because "their discriminatory policies make it unsafe for the gays who live there and gays coming to work or visit." "The law is that anyone under suspicion of homosexuality can be arrested," he told Rancic, adding that he "didn't feel right as a gay man stepping foot into Russia." These are the kind of actions we really need if we want to advance the civil rights of LGBT people in Russia. Russia should be treated more like South Africa* was than trying to relive the Coors/orange juice days by boycotting a beverage. When celebrities, businesses, and entertainment companies start walking away over the human rights violations, that is when the Russian government - with their weak economy - will sit up and take notice. This is much bigger than your choice of alcohol brand, folks. People are really starting to think Big Picture now and it gives me much more confidence in our abilities to actually help LGBT Russians bring real change to their government and their neighbors. *Taking into consideration, of course, that there is no cookie cutter method of international diplomacy.

Devin Shocks Judges When He Switched to Spanish While Singing Beyonce’s “Listen"

(Daily Motion)
Devin Velez pleasantly surprised the “American Idol” judges on Thursday when he sang part of his performance in Spanish.
Velez was competing in the sudden death round when he suddenly changed languages midway through “Listen” byBeyoncé.
Keith Urban praised Velez for needing nothing more than a stellar vocal to succeed, while Nicki Minaj said she had to “commend” the contestant for showing he was bi-lingual.
“It was a smart choice,” the rapper said, pointing out that it was a great marketing move.
Randy Jackson, who up to this point had been largely unimpressed by the other performances, went even further, saying, “Dude, I love you. I thought it was amazing.”
Added Mariah Carey, “No matter what, I can’t wait to see what a producer does when you get into the studio and make an album.”

WT*F*F l o r i d a Awards*

We Dob’t know if we will keep this posting on file(we don’t delete postings for any reason!) for a quiet winter night. If you dint want to see again let me know with the comments. If you like it and want more, let us know. 
Welcome to the first annual WTF Florida Awards ceremony. It's the only award show celebrating the special brand of bizarre depravity we excel at down here in the Sunshine State. Black tie isn't required. In fact, jorts and a NASCAR cap are preferred.

Yesterday we gave out awards for political fuckery. Today, we'll be giving out awards for actual fuckery in our highly anticipated sex category.

Disgusting Achievement in Public Sex
Get a room you two. No seriously, get a room. The nominees:

  • Jeremie Calo and Tiffani Lynn Barganier for having sex on an outdoor table at an Orlando Paddy Murphy's in view of children [source].
  • Amber Mumma and Marcelo Gonzalez for having sex against a car in the parking lot of a Tampa pool hall while several people watched. [source]
  • Matthew Rayfield and Diane Orosz for having sex in full view of boats passing by on the Intracoastal Waterway. [source]

And the winner is: Jeremie Calo and Tiffani Lynn Barganier

We imagine a place called Paddy Murphy's to be one of the least sexy places in existence, but that didn't stop these two from fornicating on top of a table in view of everyone, including children. The pair wouldn't even stop when a manager asked them to. To make matters worse, Calo ended up threatening to run out on his tab and vomited all over the floor.

Special Achievement in Masturbation
We all do it. Some of us just get more attention for it. The nominees:

  • Tracy Mabb for getting naked and touching herself in the middle of an intersection [source]
  • Ashley Holton for backing up traffic as she touched herself on the side of a highway [source]
  • Jeffery Marriott for whacking in his front yard, and leaving an "unknown clear liquid substance" on his door knob when cops came. [source]
  • Jennifer Piranian for masturbating at a Starbucks. [source]
  • Unknown man who had to show a police officer his genital rash to prove he wasn't masturbating in public, but merely itching himself. [source]


Adult Entertainer of the Year
Some porn stars are actually upstanding members of the community. Others, well ... The nominees:

  • Jessica and Monica Sexxxton, Tampa's Mother-Daughter Porn Duo [source]
  • Sara Jay and Angelina Castro for promising blow jobs to all if the Miami Heat won the NBA Championship [source]
  • Dallas Reeves for allegedly helping a Speedo-clad friend do a little cocaine on a Wilton Manors gay pride parade float. [source
  • Sebastian Young for racking up his 13th Florida mugshot [very NSFW source]
  • Sunny Dae for getting 40 years in prison after assisting in the murder of a man at a New Port Richey sex party. [source]

And the winner is: Sara Jay and Angelina Castro

Sure, the blowjob marathon they promised never actually happened, probably because the received the threat of legal action from the NBA, but kudos to these two for drumming up all the crazy publicity.

Follow Miami New Times on Facebook and Twitter@MiamiNewTimes.

And the winner is: Tracy Mabb.

Yes, it was the mugshot.
