Even though Waffle House doesn’t serve alcohol, they serve more drunk people than most places that DO. So I give them the benefit of the doubt when it comes to something like this .

It’s, quote, “bacon infused” and apparently it smells just like bacon when you crack it open.

We’ve worn sweatpants all year long. Are we REALLY going to switch to form-fitting clothes on the biggest overeating day of the year?
Stove Top has decided to release a CLOTHING LINE for Thanksgiving. But rather than leaning into this year’s theme of comfort, they decided to go the opposite way . . . and create FORMALWEAR.

The line includes five items: A red velvet dinner jacket with stuffing lining . . . cufflinks . . . a reversible shawl with a stuffing print . . . a headband . . . and a handkerchief and pocket square.

All five items go on sale on a special website Stove Top set up for the occasion . . . LetsGetStuffy.com.

New Dating Terms For A New World
The dating app Plenty of Fish puts out an annual list of dating trends they expect to see more of next year. And a few of the trends on their 2021 list have to do with COVID. Here are 11 dating trends they expect to see more of next year.
1. Fauci-ing. Declining to date someone because you don’t feel they’re taking the pandemic seriously enough.
2. Maskerading. Where you PRETEND to care about masks and COVID-19, just so people will date you.
3. Apocalypsing. Treating every relationship like it’s your last, and getting too serious too quick. A third of single people know someone who’s done it.
4. Zoomlander-ing. Like the movie “Zoolander”. It’s people who won’t stop checking THEMSELVES out on camera when you’re on a Zoom date.
5. Sanitizing. This one isn’t a COVID thing. It’s when you delete photos and wipe all evidence of past relationships from your social media.
6. Endgame-ing. Accidentally sending a racy photo or video to someone you’re dating.
7. Folklore-ing. Being so focused on fairytale romance that your expectations don’t match reality.
8. Waldo-ing. When someone only posts group photos on their dating profile, so it’s hard to tell which person they are.
9. Stalk-blocking. When you make all of your social media accounts private, so people who might want to date you can’t research you first.
10. Bradying. This one’s a dig on Tom Brady for changing teams. It’s when you end a long-term relationship even though everyone says it’s a mistake.
11. Hey and Pray. When you play the numbers game on dating apps, and just spam a bunch of people with things like “hi” or “hey there.” Two-thirds of women who use dating apps say it’s happened to them.

According to a new survey, only 7% of people say they like this current system of changing the clocks once in the spring and then again in the fall. 66% of people say they’d like to get rid of Daylight Saving Time, so basically, this coming spring, we just wouldn’t change the clocks.

Kanye Gives Kim The Gift Of Hologram Dead Dad

And of course, it told her that she, quote, “married the most, most, most, most, most, genius man in the whole world, Kanye West!” KANYE WEST may have reached the height of insanity when putting together KIM KARDASHIAN’s 40th birthday gift. Because he gave her a hologram of her late father, ROBERT KARDASHIAN. Hologram Robert tells Kim how proud he is of the whole family, and how he’s watching over all of them. And he loves the fact that she’s continuing his legacy by studying to become a lawyer. Oh, and he also tells Kim she married, quote, “The most, most, most, most, most, genius man in the whole world, Kanye West!” As tacky and weird as this might seem to a normal person, Kim LOVED it. She posted a video of the hologram and said, quote, “For my birthday, Kanye got me the most thoughtful gift of a lifetime. A special surprise from heaven. “A hologram of my dad. It is so lifelike! We watched it over and over, filled with emotion.”
Robert died in 2003 . . . just shy of Kim’s 23rd birthday.
