Have you ever got a pizza craving so intense that you’re like, “I would totally take four people hostage for several hours in order to get my hands on some pizza right now”? Me too, obviously, but I’ve never acted on it. Yesterday, a man in southern Russia did just that, bursting into a college and barricading himself in a classroom with two students, a teacher, and a janitor. According to a police spokesman, “His only demand was a pizza and Sprite.” Police evacuated the area and delivered the man’s desired meal, at which point he released his hostages unharmed. Just one more piece of evidence that pizza is the most powerful drug of all. [Raw Story]
If you’ve been using the hood of your hoodie as a way to keep your head warm and shield you from the elements, you’ve really been missing out. Because guess what? If you turn your hoodie around, that same old hood transforms into a convenient trough to store your snack foods. Just fill your hood with chips, popcorn, or leftover lasagna, and dip your head down to enjoy a hands-free feast! In related news, I don’t want to live on this planet anymore. [Buzzfeed]
I don’t know your name, but I commend you for your effort to be the best airplane seat mate ever. Sure, you took it a bit too far. But the intention was there and that’s what counts. As many of us have experienced, getting trapped on a long flight next to a person who is farting/snoring/talking non-stop is unbearable. More than unbearable, it’s a goddamn nightmare.
When you found yourself sitting next to a hot woman on a five-hour flight through China, you made it your mission to remain seated the entire time so as not to disturb her. And when I say disturb her, I mean that you didn’t want to offend her with your pot belly. In order to do this, you declined to drink any of the complimentary beverages so you wouldn’t have to get up to use the men’s room. You remained seated with your seatbelt securely fastening around your safely hidden paunch for the entire flight, barely moving at all. I’m sure the woman was thrilled to have you as a seat mate. Truly. Keep reading »
Dogs. Sigh. They can be so dumb. Sometimes they eat their own poop. Sometimes they eat cat food. And sometimes they eat things even dumber than poop or cat food, such as 111 pennies. You read that right. One-hundred and eleven. Jack, a 13-year-old Jack Russell terrier in New York City (pictured), scarfed all these Abraham Lincolns and then started to barf. His owner, Tim Kelleher, rushed his dog to the vet, who discovered with an X-ray that Jack’s stomach was a poochy piggy bank. Via an endoscopy surgery, the vet removed all the pennies five at a time. He’s like the dog version of that man who died after winning a cockroach eating contest! Luckily Jack is okay and was not poisoned by all the zinc in those coins, as zinc is toxic for dogs. And I suppose his master is lucky Jack did not have a taste for dollar bills. [NJ.com; CBS Local]
Rachel Braaten of Washington was arrested after this video of her giving her 22-month-old son a bong hit surfaced.”I guess it was a joke and a stupid mistake that wasn’t really funny,” the 24-year-old told authorities.
I would strongly, strongly agree with that statement. Never has a joke failed so heinously.Braaten is facing charges for delivering a controlled substance to a minor. Her fiancee Tyler Lee, the child’s father, who was not involved in the incident, facing charges of his own. Lee was arrested for selling marijuna and unlawful possession of a firearm.The 22-month-old and the couple’s 5-year-old child are in custody of the state.
This incident is a grim reminder that there are so many people out there who should not be allowed to reproduce.
Sadly, this is not the first baby bong smoking incident. Back in 2010, Rachel Stieringer was arrested for posting pics of her baby smoking a bong on Facebook. [Huffington Post]
When I was a kid, my mom sometimes threatened to sell me to the gypsies. I didn’t know who or what a gypsy was, but I knew that I didn’t want to be sold to anyone, and it usually got me to behave better. Not so, Misty VanHorn’s children, whose mother actually tried to sell them. VanHorn, of Sallisaw, Oklahoma, allegedly wanted for $1,000 for her two-year-old and $4,000 for her four-year-old, and wanted to use the money to get her boyfriend out of jail.
And here’s the kicker…
