Pumpkin spice lattes not your thing? No worries: Starbucks is currently testing out its new Dark Barrel Latte, which is inspired by “the rise of craft beers” and meant to taste like “roasted malt” (a.k.a Guinness covered in whipped cream). The drink doesn’t have any alcohol in it, but it does include caramel and “stout flavored” sauce mixed in with its milk and espresso base.
The beer latte is being tested in a few stores in Ohio and Florida, and so far, people aren’t really sure what to think. Among those who have tried the beverage, it’s just about agreed across the board that the drink does taste like Irish stout, but nobody really knows how to process that information. Isn’t Starbucks breaking some kind of fourth wall or something by trying to mimic the one beverage Americans might love more than coffee?

A 50-year-old mom and two teenagers are the prime suspects in a vandalism case that’s tainted a football field in Temperance, Michigan.

OK fine, whatever, so Jasmine Tridevil’s third boob is kind of improbable. Maybe it’s prosthetic. I’m just going to believe in tri-boob like I used to believe in Santa Claus.
Those kindly buzzkills at The Daily Dot decided to debunk the tri-boob by, you know, talking to plastic surgeons about it. I accept that the plastic surgeon they talked to says that if she were to be able to find a surgeon to do it, the middle boob wouldn’t end up looking like it does in her pictures. Keep reading »
Looks like the pizza industry is going to pot — literally.
L.A.-based Podey Pizza has started selling jars of pot-infused pizza sauce at marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington State and Colorado.
Each 5-ounce jar of Podey Pizza sauce sells for $20 and contains 300mg of medical cannabis per jar, enough for one large pizza or two smaller ones, according to Steve Thomas, Podey Pizza’s vice president of operations. Read more on Huffington Post Weird News…
Charlo Greene of Alaskan local news station KTVA interrupted her own news report about the Alaska Cannabis Club to reveal that she was the owner of the club, and that she was quitting to focus on pushing for pot legalization — in the most dramatic way possible. There’s nothing like a “fuck it, I quit” live on the air to get jaws dropping (and inspire admiration in other worker bees who’ve dreamed of quitting in an equally classy manner). Greene told Alaska Dispatch that she created such a scene to draw attention to legalizing pot. Well, she definitely did that much. [Gawker]
After over a year of complacent denial since the big reveal of this grim truth, yesterday it came to the internet’s attention once again that Bed, Bath and Beyond, home of sky-high stacks of fluffy bath towels and Laura Ashley duvet covers, has been lying to us. Their formerly awe-inspiring displays are nothing but a farce of a foam rubber/super glue craft project dumped onto some unwitting intern. Just doing my duty to once again expose the truth to you good folks on the internet. Feel free to continue about your day now, wondering all the while what other seemingly real things in life are actually just cracking facades of crushed hopes and dreams held loosely together by our own denial. Or something like that. [BuzzFeed] [Image via Reddit]
