RIP Society: This Elementary School Took Away A Blind Boy's Cane And Replaced It With A Pool Noodle

Nothing says “Merry Christmas” quite like taking away a blind child’s cane and replacing it with a pool noodle. At least, that’s what one elementary school in Kansas City thought.

After an eight-year-old blind boy, Dakota Nafzinger, was reprimanded by his bus driver for hitting another student with his cane, the driver took away Dakota’s cane and refused to give it back to the child when it was time for him to get off the bus. To make the situation ten times worse, the school decided to KEEP THE CANE for two weeks as punishment. The assholes at Gracemor Elementary then replaced the boy’s cane with a POOL NOODLE, which does nothing to help him, except for maybe letting others know he’s a fun aquatic companion. Keep reading »

The Most Common Misheard Song Lyrics Of 2014

The Most Misheard Song Lyrics Of 2014
"Gotta Love Those Starbucks Lovers..."

Every year, Jeff Wyanski of Pleated Jeans compiles a video montage of the year’s most misheard music lyrics. For 2014′s roundup, we hear from Maroon 5, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, MKTO, Jason Derulo and a bunch of other artists who clearly had issues enunciating this year. I know this list only includes pop hits, but I really would like to nominate Miranda Lambert’s “Smokin’ and Drinkin’” where I’m CERTAIN she says “It was one of those fires that burned all night and made your coochie smell like smoke.”
