Dave Navarro’s Tattoo Thievery, Crying Superheroes and Botox for Your Balls

I don’t think I’ll ever understand trying to improve the size and shape of one’s balls — and that goes double for using Botox in an effort to achieve that end.

First off, balls are ugly. No amount of cosmetic work is going to change that inalienable fact. Is one man’s taut, hairy bean bag any better or worse than another man’s droopy sack? Probably not.

Party Foul

It’s the same thing every year: New parents who want to bring their kids to holiday parties squaring off against the hosts who don’t want them ruining the fun. In a debate such as this, no one wins. But there is a way for everyone to wind up happy, as long as they’re willing to compromise.

Men Have Found a Reason to Get Botox

Guys have never really taken to Botox the same way women have — chalk it up to not caring all that much about wrinkles. But now, some men have figured out that, when it comes to their bodies, Botox does do one thing really well: It makes their hairy ball bags hang down further, feel smoother and look bigger. Hooray?
