Casey Putsch builds a street legal batmobile!

Imagine you own street legal Batmobile Capable of 300 kmh....
The vehicle is a replica from the 1989 Batman movie
directed by Tim Burton
Casey's Batmobile

The batmobile replica designed to be ultimate road going, this new model has such high tech features such as it comes with iconic superhero vehicle, 365 horsepower engine and semi-automatic transmission wheels

The turbine engine is military grade and made by Boeing. It was reclaimed from a Navy drone helicopter that dropped torpedoes on enemy submarines. The turbine drives the car’s rear wheels via a semi-automatic transmission.

It has an aluminum and fiberglass body, and weighs in at approx 1,270 kg. It could likely perform even better, were it not for the shape of the origional film car, which casey putsch tells is not very aerodynamic.

Batmobile Acceleration:

■0 to 60 mph (97 kph) in as little as 3.9 seconds

■Top speed of 185 mph or 300 km

■78 to 24 L/100 km of jet fuel, kerosene or diesel.

The new automotive car (Batmobile Replica) was launched on June 12th in Cincinnati, at the Ault Park Concours d’Elegance, where it won 3 awards. Casey’s is one of the most popular and well-established automobile restoration and Design Company, putsch racing, began business that same month.

The Sowetans Andile Mngxitama's open letter to Julius Malema

DEAR Comrade Malema, I write this open letter to express my utter disappointment in you...

The media revelations of how you made the wealth to fund your lifestyle can't be brushed aside anymore.

I don't know if you know the saying: "Behind every great fortune there is a great crime". But recent reports prove just that.

Comrade, the wealth and comfort enjoyed by whites in South Africa is a product of historical violent theft of our land, labour and destruction of the African way of life.

Instead of fighting to redress these historical injustices, you have now literally joined those who stole from us to set yourself up, while the people continue to suffer.

When I heard that you were demolishing a R3,6million house in Sandton to build a better one for R16million, I calculated that you would be living in a R20million house.

I found the idea of destroying a house in a country that has a huge housing backlog a cruel act by one who claims to represent the poorest of the poor.

I know you know a place called Setswetla in Alexandra township. You where there just before the local elections with Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale and others.

The R20million could solve the appallingly hellish condition of the people of Setswetla. Do you know how many RDP houses could be built with R20million?

Exactly 50 years ago Frantz Fanon wrote that the curse of post-colonial Africa were the leaders who took over from the colonialists only to become black colonialists themselves.

He warned that such people take power from the whites to serve themselves, not the people, while using the rhetoric of a better life for all.

He called such leaders the comprador. You have become a comprador even before you take formal power as an official politician. The comprador, according to Fanon, is engaged in "conspicuous consumption". Please check the meaning of this concept in the dictionary, sir.

I'm disappointed because of all the leaders we have, you have stood up and spoken about the real issues that your party has avoided.

But it is clear now; you have been an opportunist who raised these issues, not to solve them, but to trick the poor who have been waiting for a better life for all for almost 20 years now under your party's rule.

Instead of leading the new struggle as a selfless leader of the poor, you only pay lip service to the plight of our people while you amass great amounts of wealth through your political influence.

You could have chosen a different path sir, the path of Thomas Sankara, who sacrificed all personal comforts to serve the people.

Or you could have chosen, just like the youth leaders of June 16 1976, such as Tsietsi Mashinini and Khotso Seatlholo, to be guided by the principle of "the people first".

No, instead you put yourself first! The black youth of this country has been abandoned by the ANC government. They looked up to you and you have let them down badly.

You are just another ruthless politician in the ANC alliance, who uses words to deceive

The Office Manager Job Application

I know geeks are a little different

This guy packs a lot a shit
Wonder if he got the job?

A South African gets his pipes crossed

A beautiful, touching story from a generous South African musician.

As a bagpiper, I’ve played many gigs up in Gauteng, but not so many since recently moving to Cape Town.

Recently, I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man.

He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at the municipal cemetery in Kraaifontein.

I now stay in Simonstown and was not familiar with the northern suburbs, so I got a bit lost on my way there.

I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch.

I felt badly and apologised to the men for being late.
I went to the side of the grave and looked down.
The guys had already started filling in and not really knowing what else to do, I started to play.

The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around.

I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends.
I played like I've never played before for this homeless man.

And as I played ’Amazing Grace,' the workers began to weep.
They wept, I wept, and we all wept together.
When I finished, I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car.
Though my head hung low, my heart was full.

As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, Jislaaik, I never seen nothin' like that before in the twenty years I've been putting in septic tanks."

 ....Apparently, I'm still lost.

Amy Winehouse the lost child

Amy was let down by all those who knew her or called her a friend!

Why you may ask?

Well that's easy this child which emotionally is all she really was has been calling out for help for so long.

This girl needed to be protected from herself and ruthless people who made so much money out of her shenanigans and antics.

In a sense all her fans failed her by not forcing her to be helped or protecting her from herself but yes we all know it's hip to be in the drug and alcohol clan!

Well have a look at the eventual results people tell me is it still so romantic and such a gas that at the age of 27 you die in the name of fame?

In the end, her death was as public as her life. The lifeless body of Amy Winehouse was discovered in her home at 3.54pm on Saturday. Within hours, rumours were circulating on Twitter, before finally being confirmed by police sources, and then backed up by someone claiming to know the officer who had been called to the scene. The policeman, this person tweeted, said that the singer died from an ecstasy overdose.

It somehow seems wrong that the world knew about Winehouse’s sad demise before her own father did. Mitch Winehouse was reportedly on a plane to New York; strangers in their tens of thousands were made aware of the news before him.

Perhaps it was best that he was 35,000 feet up in the sky. At least there he could not see the people pointing a finger of blame at those around the singer; people who had never met Winehouse or her family, tweeting themselves into a lather as to who was responsible for not looking after her.

The Internet, even for this avid Twitter user, was a pretty repellent sight on Saturday night. It was, for a moment, overtaken by Twitter ghouls carrying out the online equivalent of slowing down to look at a traffic accident. Rubber- necking.

Often, when confronted with tragedy, people note quietly to themselves that there are no words. At the weekend, there were – as long as they fitted into 140 characters, the maximum length of a tweet.

Sad to think that the dweebs who fed her habit will go on to make more money from her fame in death, it is a fu%ked up world we live in where assholes feed pain and misery to make money!

Next time you in Nindigully have a burger


The tiny township of Nindigully is located on the edge of the Queensland outback - 160km west of Goondiwindi, about 530km west of Brisbane , and approximately 70 km north of the Queensland/New South Wales border.

Nindigully Pub is Queensland's oldest hotel, located in its original condition and position on the banks of the Moonie River . The licence was issued in 1864 after operating as shearers accommodation for the Nindigully Station.

The "boom" town has now been reduced to just two houses, the pub, the old general store and the town hall, with a population of six!

Nevertheless, it was voted the Best Country Pub in Australia in 2006 by 44 Australia magazine, and you can see why - it has become famous for its truckie's feed of the Nindigully Road Train Burger this giant hamburger is served with French fries, onion rings and a selection of sauces, says it will feed 1- 4 people, and costs $36 - the meat patty alone is 1.2kg!

The sweet innocent little battles we men fight with woman

She's sitting at the table with her gourmet coffee.
Her son is on the cover of the Wheaties box. 
Her daughter is on the cover of Business Week. 
Her boyfriend is on the cover of Playgirl. 
And her husband is on the back of the milk carton
 "you know the missing persons adds" 

Keep reading-they get better!!!
'Cash, check or charge?' I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase.
As she fumbled for her wallet, I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse. 
'So, do you always carry your TV remote?' I asked. 
'No,' she replied, 'but my husband refused to come shopping with me,
and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally.'

I know I'm not going to understand women. 
I'll never understand how you can take boiling hot wax,
pour it onto your upper thigh, rip the hair out by the root, 
and still be afraid of a spider.

A man walks into a pharmacy and wanders up & down the aisles.. 
The sales girl notices him and asks him if she can help him. 
He answers that he is looking for a box of tampons for his wife.
She directs him down the correct aisle. A few minutes later, he deposits a huge bag of cotton balls and a ball of string on the counter. She says, confused, 'Sir, I thought you were looking for some tampons for your wife? 
He answers, 'You see, it's like this, yesterday, I sent my wife to the store
to get me a carton of cigarettes, and she came back with a tin of tobacco 
and some rolling papers; cause it's sooo-ooo--oo-ooo much cheaper. 
So, I figure if I have to roll my own . so does she... 

(I figure this guy is the one on the milk carton!)
A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument and
neither of them wanted to concede their position.. 
As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, 
the husband asked sarcastically, 'Relatives of yours?' 
'Yep,' the wife replied, 'in-laws.'

A man said to his wife one day, 'I don't know how you can be
so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time. 
'The wife responded, 'Allow me to explain.
God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me;
God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!

A man and his wife were having an argument about who
should brew the coffee each morning.
The wife said, 'You should do it because you get up first,
and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee.
The husband said, 'You are in charge of cooking around here and
you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee.'
Wife replies, 'No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee.' Husband replies, 'I can't believe that, show me.' So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says
The Silent Treatment 
A man and his wife were having some problems at home 
and were giving each other the silent treatment.  
Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him 
at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight. 
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper,
'Please wake me at 5:00 AM.' He left it where he knew she would find it. 
The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't wakened him,
when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed.
The paper said, 'It is 5:00 AM. Wake up..'

Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests as men deal in logic
Woman however run on pure emotion!

The curious case of Siphos smile

Three dead bodies turn up at the mortuary, all with very big smiles on their faces. Along with them comes a police inspector to find out how they died. "First body: Frenchman, 60, died of heart failure while making love to his mistress. Hence the enormous smile, Inspector," says the Coroner.

"Second body: Scotsman, 25, won a thousand pounds on the lottery, spent it all on whiskey. "Died of alcohol poisoning, hence the smile."

The Inspector asked, "What of the third body?" Ah," says the coroner, "this is the most unusual one.

"Sipho, a street sweeper from Soweto, 30, struck by lightning". "Why is he smiling then?" inquires the Inspector. Coroner says "Thought he was having his picture taken".

You want me to work for peanuts!

This whole lot sounds like a Balls Up

Amazing Photo of a Cougar

This photo of a cougar asleep in a tree won first prize in the 2011 Nat Geo Wildlife Photography Competition. 

These animals remain beautiful, but yet so dangerous

Indian Leopard goes on Rampage

Once again a magnificent creature is Killed
Man is such a destructive animal

A leopard that mauled 11 people in a fierce showdown with Indian villagers has died of knife wounds after being captured. When will man learn that his fate is intertwined with the wildlife he is decimating?

The snarling adult male leopard leaped at locals and forest officials as they tried to drive it into a wildlife sanctuary in West Bengal state.

Forest official Dharma Dev Rai said villagers used knives, stones and batons to beat the big cat back.

It injured six villagers, a policeman and four forest guards before being hit with a tranquiliser gun.

The cat died within hours, and a post-mortem is being conducted.

The incident happened near Siliguri, about 600 kilometres from Kolkata on Tuesday.

The people are recovering from their injuries, mostly swipes from the cat's claws.

Leopards are protected in India although more are straying into villages for food.

The Indian Times website Reports: Villagers needed to be made more aware of how to deal with animals that strayed out of forests. It said that, in this case, villagers had not paved a way for the leopard to return to the forest.

"We found that its four paws were injured as it had climbed on to a wall with glass shards. Afraid and desperate to return to the forest, it was attacking the bystanders," a forester told the paper.

The website added: "The forest guard further alleged that they had been forced to dart the animal due to the villagers' mounting pressure.

"If we had insisted on providing a safe passage to animals, public wrath would have fallen upon us. In such circumstances, people are in no mood to listen to us."

Big Bang Theory

She Bangs Baby

Ouch that's serious banging

Looks like this performer was having just a little too much fun with his stage help. This is all the latest craze in Jamaica and this type of dancing is referred to as ‘Daggering’ which seems to be pretty accurate i would rather say it "Bangs" which is more fitting

Smart student outsmarted!

The college professor had just finished explaining an important research project to his class. He emphasized that this paper was an absolute requirement for passing his class, and that there would be only two acceptable excuses for being late.

Those were a medically certifiable illness or a death in the student's immediate family.

A 'smart' student in the back of the classroom waved his hand and spoke up. "But what about extreme sexual exhaustion, professor?"

As you would expect, the class exploded in laughter. When the students had finally settled down, the professor froze the young man with a glaring look.

"Well," he responded, "I guess you'll just have to learn to write with your other hand."

Teens are finding more...uck as in F or L

Jobs man you F%ck out of Luck

Anybody can make a mistake!

Early bird gets the worm!

Little Johnny always in the trouble

Ever thought of breasts other than on a chest?

Researchers have found a 22-year-old woman with a full grown nipple on her foot. I don't know if a foot nipple is considered not safe for work, but then again who knows?

While it seems straight from the pages of National Enquirer, the case was recently published in the scientific journal Dermatology Online. Many men and women have third and four vestigial nipples, running along the milk lines that go from the genitals to the breasts. This case is completely unique, however, according to the research paper:

The Quintessential Tit Foot

Fully developed breast nipple on the foot
A 22-year-old woman sought medical care for a lesion in the plantar region of her left foot, a well-formed nipple surrounded by areola and hair.Microscopic examination of the dermis showed hair follicles, eccrine glands, and sebaceous glands.Fat tissue was noted at the base of the lesion. Clinical and histopathologic findings were consistent with the diagnosis of supernumerary breast tissue, also known as pseudomamma. To our knowledge, this is the first report of supernumerary breast tissue on the foot.
Third and fourth nipples are called supernumerary nipples, vestigial nipples or, in folklore, witch's nipples. Some people believed that witches used them to feed demons. In other cultures they were considered a sign of virility among men and fertility among women.

The fact is that many people have them, including King Henry VIII of England's wife Anne Boleyn, the actor Mark Walhberg and myself. Yes, I have one on my left side (pictured next to these lines). It's a full nipple, but it's very tiny and hard to spot. So much that my doctor had to point at it. You may have them too: Look for them a few inches below your real nipples, near the end of your ribcage.

There are other strange cases of supernumerary nipples. Reader Allyson Vincent shared a clip from a medicine journal talking about "a woman who had a supernumerary breast mass on her vulva." Will the wonders ever cease?

Let The Awsome Clark Retirement Home Entertain You

Clark Retirement Community LipDub from Clark LipDub on Vimeo.

Older people can be so awesome get an eyeful of this lot lip syncing
The song chosen by Clark Retirement Community to "sing" along to is Michael Bublé's cover of "I'm Feeling Good" (of course), originally sung by Nina Simone.

Keeping with the crooning theme, we see synchronised swimmers waving big red fans, roulette players, and, um, old men on motorised wheelchairs with balloons attached to the back.

It is nothing short of absolutely wonderful, and it's our genuine pleasure to share it with you below. So hats off to Clark Retirement Community and the Grand Valley State University Film & Video Production students who made it all happen. Seriously, it's made us feel, like, well good.

Cat Food could kill you!


A woman was enjoying a good game of golf with her girlfriends.  "Oh, no!" she suddenly exclaimed. "Look at the time!

I have to rush home and fix dinner for my husband!  He'll be so pissed off if it's not ready on time."

When she got home, she discovered all she had in the fridge was a wilted lettuce leaf, an egg, and a tin of cat food. With no time to go to the supermarket, she opened the can of cat food, stirred in the egg, and garnished it with the lettuce leaf.

She greeted her husband warmly when he came home, and then watched in horror as he sat down to his dinner.  To her surprise, he seemed to be enjoying it.

"Darling,  this  is  the  best  dinner  you've  made me in 40 years of marriage!  You can make this for me any day?"

Needless to say, every golf day from then on, the woman made her husband the same dish.  She told her golf partners about it, and they were all horrified.

"You're going to kill him!" they exclaimed!?

Two  months later, her husband died.  The women were sitting around the clubhouse, and one of them said, "You killed him! We  told you that feeding him that cat food every week would do him in!
How can you just sit there so calmly knowing you murdered your husband?"

The wife stoically replied, "I didn't kill him.  He fell off the second floor windowsill while he was sitting licking his arse."

Happy Birthday Nelson Mandela

Happy Birthday Madiba
Pessimist Inc wishes you a Happy Birthday
93 years old today here's to another 93 years

Spreading the love

In a birthday message to Mandela, President Jacob Zuma said South Africa needed to make poverty eradication a top priority.

"From the moment Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela strode out of prison on the 11th of February 1990, we knew that South Africa would be a different place," the president said in a statement.

"He showed us that despite the divisive racial oppression and hardships that this nation had gone through, it is not only possible, but necessary to embrace one another and to reconcile the South African people."

Zuma said Mandela had laid the foundation for a "solid constitutional democracy".

Whiskey you evil elixir get ye behind me!

Strong drink and Mirrors don't mix so well!

Flynn staggered home very late after another evening with his drinking buddy, Paddy.. He took off his shoes to avoid waking his wife, Mary.He tiptoed as quietly as he could toward the stairs leading to their upstairs bedroom, but misjudged the bottom step.

As he caught himself by grabbing the banister, his body swung around and he landed heavily on his rump. A whiskey bottle in each back pocket broke and made the landing especially painful.

Managing not to yell, Flynn sprung up, pulled down his pants, and looked in the hall mirror to see that his butt cheeks were cut and bleeding. He managed to quietly find a full box of Band-Aids and began putting a Band-Aid as best he could on each place he saw blood. He then hid the now almost empty Band-Aid box and shuffled and stumbled his way to bed.

In the morning, Flynn woke up with searing pain in both his head and butt...and Mary staring at him from across the room.

She said, 'You were drunk again last night weren't you?'

Flynn said, 'Why you say such a mean thing?'

'Well,' Mary said, 'it could be the open front door, it could be the broken glass at the bottom of the stairs, it could be the drops of blood trailing through the house, it could be your bloodshot eyes, but's all those Band-Aids stuck on the hall mirror.

Wally the Naughty Warthog

Katima Mulilo — In plain, simple language a poster on a sturdy pole near the terrace at Caprivi River Lodge warns about crocodiles lurking in the Zambezi River.

Wally Greeting a guest

The area between the poster and the terrace is the place where 'Wally the warthog' is king as he forages while grunting and squealing and throwing his massive weight around, going about his business.

For breakfast, Wally who wakes up at 05h00 from the bedroom of his 'parents' takes two slices of bread with a cup of lukewarm tea before he goes foraging.

When he forages too close to the river, Mary, with genuine parental concern, calls the warthog by his name and without hesitation Wally promptly obeys the command by trotting away from the danger zone.

Mary Rooken-Smith is the woman who brought up the warthog and Wally believes this woman is his 'mother'. And like any naughty child he occasionally gets a "spanking" whenever he strays from the straight path, or steals the food from other animals that make up the lodge's mini menagerie comprising Wally, guinea fowls, cats and dogs.

Wally is a celebrity of some sort because tourists who visit the up-market Caprivi River Lodge on the banks of the Zambezi simply like or adore him.

He is probably the most photographed warthog as he hob-nobs with droves of visitors who tour Caprivi and who often take snapshots of him to keep fresh their close encounters and fond memories of Wally.

They come to adore him after a story is narrated how Wally was orphaned either by poachers or probably by a pride of lions in the Mudumu National Park.

Wally sneaking around guests rooms

Mary said his salvation came about ironically while her husband Keith Rooken-Smith was on a big-game hunting mission in the Mudumu National Park.

"He is around 13 months, he is still very much a baby," she says about Wally, who is obviously overweight and looks much older than his age.

"We found him at the end of October in Mudumu National Park. My husband, who was with his clients, found him there. They saw these baby warthogs on their own. They were very small, very, very tiny and very weak," she recalls about the rescue.

"Then my husband got down on his hunches and called them. The one little one came up to him and he picked him (Wally) up - he saw they were orphans and so small and weak and did not have the fear of a person. Then my husband gave me a call and he said he has got a baby warthog and asked me to come and pick it up. Up to that time I had never seen a baby warthog. I did not know what to expect," she said.

"When I got to the camp I asked the camp people where the warthog was. They told me the warthog was in my husband's tent. So I went there and I looked for that small warthog expecting something of this size," she said, outstretching her arms for added effect.

"I went back to them and said there is nothing in the tent and they said it has to be there. So I went back and looked again and in the corner under the bed there was this tiny little bundle. I was very surprised at how small it was," explained Mary.

Initially she did not know what to do but luckily her husband's client then who was a vet gave her tips on warthog-rearing and through a hypodermic syringe she fed Wally his first meal - some peanut butter.

"The only way you could give him some food was through a syringe.
"And I bought baby food and baby milk and I fed him with a syringe, but it was a terrible job.

Then I introduced him to a baby teat and it was like 24-hour feeding.
My husband and I took turns feeding him," she says.

"Eventually he was big enough. So I started giving him porridge with a spoon. I think they were living on guinea fowl droppings. I had a guinea fowl and he used to pick and eat their droppings. Wally loved his bottle with infant formula," recalled Mary.

"Then there was no more milk and now he grazes, forages and he eats plants and grass but he is still fed a mixture of apples and rice twice a day," she added.

"In the morning Wally loves his bowl of tea with two pieces of bread in it, and if he doesn't get it he will mourn, mourn and mourn," further narrated Mary.

"Wally is a combination of having a dog and a naughty kid in the house. He is a combination of both. He looks up to Kamata (a beagle) as his big brother and he looks at other animals, the cats the guinea fowls as members of his family," she stated.

"He is the most photographed pig around here. Tourists and business people take a lot of photos of him. He is definitely a novelty and he is a chocoholic - loves chocolate. He is a gentle giant," she says.

Ninety percent of guests at the lodge "love Wally, but one American put it nicely, saying it was such a privilege to know Wally who is non-aggressive although curious and he likes to meet people."

Wally likes guests to take note of him and if given a chance he will not hesitate to peek into women's handbags and "given half a chance he will join them in bed or even join them in the shower."

She describes him as quite some character; "He is quite a character and he has quite a strict routine. He gets up about half past five in the morning. During the day he sleeps a lot because it is too hot here.

"In the evening he sleeps after his dinner.
He is given a little tidbit to put him to bed - sometimes a little fruit or a little dog biscuit then I sit with him for about 10 minutes till he goes to sleep, then it's dinner time and the bar.

We have to be strict with Wally, otherwise we won't be able to cope," she said. Wally, who is ear-tagged lest he gets lost and to ensure he is not mistaken for one of those wild warthogs, sleeps on a separate bed in the couple's bedroom.

The riverside lodge where Wally stays has chalets and cabins and on two stately occasions President Hifikepunye Pohamba has been its VIP guest

Smile Mr Crocodile you a big Brut and your on camera

Incredible jumping crocodile caught
on camera in Australia

Brutus the 5.5m Crocodile in action
I think I know why that water is so brown!

A PHOTOGRAPHER got the snap of her life when this giant croc jumped out of the Adelaide River.

Brutus, a 5.5m long saltwater crocodile, launched himself from the water next to a boat full of tourists as he tucked into his regular buffalo meat meal.

Snapper Katrina Bridgeford, from Sydney, took the amazing photo on the Adelaide River Jumping Croc Cruises tour as a guide held out the snack.

She said: "I wasn't expecting anything like this. I couldn't believe how close it got to us. If you put your hand out, you would've touched it."

Brutus, who is missing his right front leg, is a favourite with tourists on the Northern Territory river cruise because of his incredible dinner show.

Zombie face of Rick Genest

Over-the-top makeup is commonplace in high fashion these days, but permanently altering your appearance for the flashing lights? That's dedication and perhaps madness.

Canadian model Rick Genest, easily recognizable for his skull facial tattoos (yes, they're real), has been everywhere lately, from Lady Gaga's new video for "Born This Way" to the runways of Paris and Milan.

Genest is also the new face of iconic designer Thierry Mugler, who makes one-of-a-kind pieces for stars like Beyonce and Lady Gaga.

His unique appearance has garnered him a lot of attention and some time in the spotlight, but the look is definitely controversial. Do you think it's sexy or scary?
