Bigger and Botoxier 

Shockingly, the CDC has discovered that Botox may be bad for you. That's right kids: injecting one of the most lethal toxins on Earth into your face may have serious consequences, besides making you fabulously young and stoic-looking. This seems to have come as a bit of a shock to one (unnamed) doctor and his three patients, who all took high, repeated doses of the drug but failed to die due to hospital interventions. I mean, really.

If you wanna get laid more, a bigger headpiece seems to do the trick. As long as you're a chicken. Researchers have found that roosters mate more with chickens who have larger combs, though it's not clear why. Comb size does vary with hormonal state in chickens, but it seems odd that roosters would mate for a trait that makes offspring more visible to predators. Maybe they're just from the South.
