Woman Can’t Get McNuggets And Goes Nuts


If you need anymore proof that there is something other than chicken in McDonald’s McNuggets, look no further than Melodi Dushane. Melodi went through the fast food drive-thru at 6:30 in the morning hoping to get some of Mickey D’s famous chicken morsels. When she found out that the restaurant was only serving breakfast, her reaction was something a bit more violent than just accepting the fact that 6:30 a.m. is not ideal McNugget-munching time. Instead, Melodi thought assaulting the employee until the food appeared was a much better idea. Keep reading »

Poop Coffee and Other Weird Foods That Cost Big Bucks

Some people are always complaining about how much chains like Starbucks charge for a simple cup of coffee. Well, these folks haven’t heard about “Kopi Luwak,” and luckily not too many coffee shops have either. “Kopi Luwak” is a special brew that costs $30 bucks a cup because of its one special stand-out ingredient: animal feces. The exotic Civet, a type of feline, is the chosen animal that has its poop percolated into cups of “Kopi Luwak.” The animal eats the coffee beans and once it excretes them, they are roasted and turned into the brew that can run over $400 a pound. It may sound like a load of crap, but some coffee shops are beginning to pick up “Kopi Luwak,” claiming it provides especially smooth brews. [Gothamist]

Tweeting is not just for the younger generations, as proven by the oldest Twitter user, Ivy Bean. Sadly, the Twitter maven passed away today at 104 years old.

Bean’s popular Twitter account currently has 59,261 followers. Her presence is still felt online as her home care manager tweeted in her absence, “Ivy passed away peacefully at 12.08 this morning.” Bean, a former mill worker, joined Facebook at 102 years old.

A Wedding To Die For

Your wedding day is supposed to be one of the most special in your life, one you’ll hopefully never forget. Well, sweethearts Valentina Anitra, 22, and Ignazio Licodia, 25, definitely won’t ever forget theirs, considering their photographer was accidentally killed by a gunshot. Their wedding took place at the groom’s parents’ home in Sicily; the wedding photographer, taking some, er, shots of the wedding party, asked the bride and groom to pose with a hunting rifle. Apparently, in southern Italy, especially in Sicily, firing guns at festivals and special family occasions is tradition. Somehow the gun went off and the photographer was shot in the head and died. Police are trying to establish if the gun went off while it was being handled by the photographer or by the couple. If a death on the day of your wedding isn’t bad enough, police said that the groom’s parents could be prosecuted because the photographer died on their property. The couple-to-be called off the wedding ceremony after the shooting. Their special day will definitely not be forgotten, unfortunately for not so happy reasons. Let this be a lesson to engaged couples everywhere — if you’re going to pose with a gun in your wedding garb, make sure the film is the only thing that’s loaded. [News.com.au]
