Burger King Celebrates Women In The Kitchen

Burger King really put the cliché “all publicity is good publicity” to the test yesterday.  It was International Women’s Day yesterday, and Burger King U.K. decided to celebrate the day by tweeting, quote, “Women belong in the kitchen.”  That’s it.  That was the whole tweet.  They followed up with other tweets saying, quote, “If they want to, of course.  Yet only 20% of chefs are women.  We’re on a mission to change the gender ratio.”  And they talked about a scholarship program for female employees.  But it was too late.  The first tweet got HAMMERED all day.  As one person tweeted, quote, “Please don’t use sexism as clickbait.”  And things got toxic when sexist trolls came out in full force to go after people who had problems with the tweet.  Burger King U.K. tried to defend the tweet at first, but eventually wound up tweeting an apology, quote, “We hear you.  We got our initial tweet wrong and we’re sorry.” They deleted the “women belong in the kitchen” tweet last night.

 

Royal Hatred

In their interview with OPRAH, we located a gem! Here’s a bonus clip that didn’t air Sunday night, Meghan discussed her father betraying her and going to the media.

the rest of the interview that aired has PRINCE HARRY and MEGHAN MARKLE revealing that there is a person or persons within the Royal organization who was worried about the skin color of their future children.    Harry and Meghan declined to name names.  But they want you to know who it WASN’T.  On CBS This Morning” yesterday, Oprah said that after the interview aired, Harry told her that it wasn’t QUEEN ELIZABETH or her husband PRINCE PHILIP.  Meanwhile, “Us Weekly” spoke to a body language expert who picked up several verbal and nonverbal hints that Meghan was HOLDING BACK when she spoke about the Queen.  If you recall, she really had nothing bad to say about her.  But the expert says, quote, “Her words came out stilted, almost as if she had rehearsed saying something nice about the queen.”  She added, quote, “When asked Meghan about her first meeting with the queen, you could see Meghan’s energy shifted immediately.”  Another body language expert says that Harry’s behavior indicated that he has love for the Queen and PRINCE WILLIAM . . . but he showed anger and resentment toward his father, PRINCE CHARLES.  Not surprisingly, ratings for the interview were spectacular.  An average of 17.1 million viewers tuned in . . . which is more than the “Golden Globes” and the “Emmys” combined.

 

 

Date Refund

This is a bold move, that’s for sure.  A woman named Alex Coboth from Milwaukee, Wisconsin just tweeted a screenshot of the texts a guy sent her when she ended things after three dates.  Quote, “It’s only fair to ask for equal payment from you from the dates we went on . . . I paid for both of us each time.  I’d say $35 is more than fair for your food and drinks . . . I view you as a fair girl, I hope you’ll consider reimbursing me.”  Now her tweet is going viral . . . and she hasn’t sent him any money.

Multi Colored Hot Goat Alert

A woman in Alabama was arrested recently after she stole a neighbor’s goat . . . PAINTED it . . . and then took a bunch of photos for social media.  She’s looking at a FELONY charge for livestock theft.  On one hand, this woman’s facing some serious criminal charges.  But on the other hand, I bet she got at least 15 likes on Instagram.  So totally worth it. There’s a 34-year-old woman named Erica Farmer in Gulf Shores, Alabama.  And she recently stole her neighbor’s GOAT . . . PAINTED it . . . and then took a bunch of photos for social media. The goat’s owner figured out what happened and called the cops.  They found the goat at Erica’s house.  And now she’s looking at a FELONY charge for livestock theft.  She’s also looking at an animal cruelty charge.

National Tortilla Chip Day

My pro tip, Guac instead if salsa, jussssssssssssayin.. but avoid Nebraska. Today is National Tortilla Chip Day, and somehow none of us got the day off work.  What’s up with that?  In honor of today’s very real holiday, a new study looked at Google search data to figure out the most popular DIP in every state, for tortilla chips or any other kinds of chips.  Salsa won the most states, with 18.  It just beat out guacamole, with 15 states.  Queso was third, with six states . . . ranch and buffalo chicken dip both won three states . . . artichoke dip took two states . . . then French onion dip, crab dip, and beer cheese dip each won one state.  For what it’s worth, the state that picked crab dip was Maryland and the state with beer cheese dip was Wisconsin, so that checks out.

 

 

Brushing With A Poohbrush

If you’ve never heard of “toilet plume” before, get ready to freak out for a second.  But don’t worry, this is good news . . .  “Toilet plume” is the term for tiny, germ-filled droplets that end up in the air when you flush the toilet.  And people have been stressing over it for years, because experts said some of that plume can end up on your TOOTHBRUSH. But a new study found you probably don’t have to worry about it.  Researchers at Northwestern analyzed the bacteria on 34 used toothbrushes.  And they did find a lot of bacteria, but not the type you flush. The vast majority of the microbes they found were the type that live in your mouth or on your skin, not in your gut.  Some of the bacteria they found ALSO exists in your gut.  But they say it’s much more likely those particles came from people’s mouths than from their toilets.  In other words, flushing probably won’t fling fecal matter all over your bathroom.  And previous studies have found that even if tiny amounts do get on your toothbrush, it’s not a health risk.

 

 

Best Friends Have To Be Great

It’s important to be a good friend . . . even if your motivations are VERY questionable. According to a new study out of Oklahoma State University, the main thing that drives us to be a good friend to someone is . . . jealousy that they might like their other friends more than us if we don’t step it up.  The researchers found we’re even more jealous of a person’s other friends than their new significant other, quote, “Which means what makes us most jealous is the possibility that we might be replaced.”

 

 

Celebrate National Marg Day!

Today is National Margarita Day, because why WOULDN’T a random Monday in mid-February be National Margarita Day? In honor of the holiday, a new study ranked all 50 states by their love of margaritas based on Google search trends.  The five states that love margaritas the most are:  New Hampshire . . . Maine . . . Colorado . . . Missouri . . . and Tennessee.

And the five states that love them the least are:  Utah . . . North Dakota . . . Montana . . . Michigan . . . and South Dakota. Also, another survey found 15% of people say they only drink margaritas on vacation . . . 5% always get really bad hangovers from the mix of sugar and tequila . . . and 3% judge people who order frozen margaritas

 

 

No more hairspray? How about  Gorllia Glue?

You know how bad it is when you get gum stuck in your hair?  This is, no exaggeration, one billion times worse.  There’s a woman in the New Orleans, Louisiana area named Tessica Brown.  And about a month ago, she had just finished doing her hair when she realized she was out of her hair spray.  So . . . she sprayed her hair with GORILLA GLUE instead.  She posted an Instagram video on Friday about how BAD of an idea that was . . . because her hair hasn’t moved in a month.  She says she’s washed it 15 times and nothing happens.  Her video went viral . . . and Saturday, she decided to get help and went to the hospital.  Of course, she documented her trip on Instagram.  Her latest picture is a big jug of, quote, “sterile water for irrigation” and medical-grade nail polish remover pads, with the caption, quote, “This is really about to be a long process.”  (ABC 2 – Baton Rouge)

Get Chunky, Live Longer

It turns out I’ve been accidentally taking longevity medicine without knowing it.  And that medicine is ranch dressing. According to a new study out of Ohio State University, people who chub up as they get older actually live the LONGEST of anyone.  The study looked at people in a town in Massachusetts for almost 70 years.  And they found that people who start their adult lives at an average weight and then slowly become overweight . . . but not obese . . . live longer than people who stay at an average weight their whole life.  They’re not exactly sure WHY those extra pounds help keep you alive but, quote, “the impact of weight gain on mortality is complex.”

KANYE WEST moved his 500 pair of sneakers out of the CALABASAS, CA, manse he shared with wife KIM KARDASHIAN.

Coca Cola Rush

This drink is either going to be revolutionary or the worst thing you’ve ever tasted, and we really aren’t sure which. Coca-Cola with Coffee just launched nationwide, and so did a sugar-free version.  The cans are a mix of Coke and coffee and come in three flavors:  Dark blend, caramel, or vanilla.  Each 12-ounce can has 69 milligrams of caffeine, which is just over half of a regular coffee or a Red Bull, but more than double a can of regular Coke.

Last week, two guys tried to break into a house in Fort Wayne, Indiana in the middle of the night by kicking in the front door.  But . . . as they were kicking in the door, one of them accidentally SHOT HIMSELF in the thigh with the gun in his pocket. And we know that’s what happened, because the entire thing was caught on video by the Ring doorbell camera at the house. The guys ran off right after that. Later that night, the guy who shot himself went to the hospital . . . where he was arrested.  Police are still trying to find the other guy.  Here’s the idots!

 

Ladies Loved Dogs First

Do you feel like your dog is part of your family?  Of course you do.  Most people do. And a new study out of Washington State University figured out WHY . . . it’s all thanks to women.  The researchers found that women formed early bonds with dogs just as dogs were becoming domesticated, and as a result, quote, “[Dogs] were more likely to be included in family life.”  Women are responsible for dogs getting names, sleeping on furniture, and getting funerals when they passed away.  And that’s how dogs became SO important to people and bonded with us so well . . . which is still going on today.  The researchers say, quote, “Dogs are everywhere humans are . . . they have been able to thrive.  They have hitched themselves to us and followed us all over the world.  It’s been a very successful relationship.

 

 

Caught With His Wife By His Wife

HER.  He’d digitized some of their old photos together from back when they were younger, and she didn’t recognize herself. We don’t know how old they are now, but from the one photo circulating, I’d estimate late 40s or 50s. Leonora was arrested, and charges against her are pending.

Cobra Kai’s Ralph Macchio Youth Secret

As impossible as it seems, RALPH MACCHIO just turned 59 in November.  Seriously . . . the guy could pass for 39.  And now, he’s sharing the secret to his eternal youth.  Unfortunately, it’s nothing you can copy. He says, quote, “I blame my parents.  They both look very young for their age.  I have a youthful energy about me for some reason.  A healthy lifestyle doesn’t hurt.  But I think I’ve just gotten lucky in the gene department.”

 

 

Eat Your Tree

If your Christmas tree is still sitting in your house, here’s an option instead of dragging it out to the curb:  Serve it for dinner. There’s a new cookbook out from a, quote, “artisan baker and cook” in the U.K. named Julia Georgallis called How to Eat Your Christmas Tree”.  And it features dozens of recipes you can make using your tree. For example, Christmas-Cured Fish uses almost a pound of needles for decoration and flavoring.  With Christmas Tree Pickles, you throw a handful of needles into a jar with your pickles for a month.  There’s even ICE CREAM flavored with blue spruce needles and ginger. Julia says she created the book so people would get better use out of their trees . . . rather than chopping down 30 million trees every year and then throwing them away.  Plus, quote, “I don’t know why it’s so weird because we eat and we forage so many [other] plants.”

 

 

Attack Squirrels

Some people living in a Queens neighborhood are afraid to leave their homes. That’s because there have been several aggressive squirrel attacks over the last few weeks, CBS 2 New York’s Hazel Sanchez reported Tuesday. Micheline Frederick is still bruised. Her bite wounds are healing after she was attacked by a squirrel one week ago. “You hear someone has been bitten by a squirrel, you’re like ‘Okay, you got a little nib, what’s the deal?’ But this was … this was an MMA cage match! And I lost!” Frederick said. Here’s the video!

 

 

Bird Poosicle on Your House!

At some point, you’ve probably cracked an icicle off the gutters and eaten it like a cold, flavorless popsicle. But here’s something you DIDN’T know.  That popsicle actually DOES have a flavor . . . and the flavor is bird poop.  Katie Nickolaou is a meteorologist in Sioux City, Iowa.  And she’s going viral with a TikTok video she posted that explains why icicles are filled with bird poop. Quote, “When icicles form, it’s from water that melts off your roof and runs down the side of a building.  You know what else is on your roof?  Bird poop.  A lot of it.”  That’s not to say you’ll get sick from licking the bird poop in an icicle . . . but really, is that something you WANT to lick?

Here she is with video proof!

The Things we’ll miss this year!

With so many of the normal Christmas traditions going out the window this year, a new survey asked people:  Are there things you thought you HATED about the holidays but you’re kinda gonna miss this year?  Here are the top 10 . . .

1.  The chaos of the entire family being together.

2.  Making fun of . . . or being made fun of by . . . your siblings and parents.

3.  The last-minute shopping rush.

4.  Pretending you like a gift.

5.  Spending time with your in-laws.

6.  A lack of personal space.

7.  Arguing over Christmas dinner.

8.  Wearing ugly Christmas sweaters.

9.  Fighting over the TV remote.

10.  Dry turkey.

 

 

Sleepin Less, Still Tired As F!

Going into 2020, most of us weren’t getting enough sleep already.  And this was NOT the year to turn that around.  According to a new survey, the average American slept about 47 minutes less every night in 2020 than in 2019.  In 2019, we slept an average of six hours and 17 minutes a night.  This year it’s down to five hours and 30 minutes.  The average person also says they’re going to bed earlier and waking up earlier than they did last year.

 

Were All Wine-ing this year!

This really ISN’T the New Year’s Eve to be passing around the biggest bottle of champagne you’ve ever seen.  Some Costco warehouses have started selling GIANT bottles of Veuve Clicquot champagne.   The bottle is six liters, which is more than one and a half gallons.  And it’s going to set you back $830.  That’s actually a pretty bad deal.  A regular 750 milliliter bottle of Veuve sells for $60 at Wine.com.  So it would cost you $480 to get the same amount of champagne as Costco is selling for $830.  You’re REALLY paying for the giant bottle gimmick.

Christmas Gift Giving Stress

The “Christmas spirit” is about being kind and thoughtful . . . and making everyone else look like they didn’t even try.  A new poll found 61% of us see gift-giving as a competition, and will try to “out-gift” at least one other person this year.

The most common people we compete with are our siblings, friends, and significant other.  Here are the ten most stressful things about holiday shopping . . .

1.  Trying to find the “perfect” gift.  Almost 1 in 5 people claim they ALWAYS find the perfect gift.

2.  Looking for something that’s sold out.  Like the PlayStation 5 this year.

3.  Worrying someone won’t like your gift.

4.  Worrying it’s something they won’t use.

5.  Buying them something they already have.

6.  Being “out-gifted” by someone.

7.  Worrying your gift won’t adequately show the person how much you love them.

8.  Bad weather and driving conditions while you’re out shopping.

9.  Being out for long periods of time.

10.  Porch pirates stealing your packages.

 

Celebrity Dirty Top 5

1.  ICE-T posted about his anti-masker father-in-law battling a serious case of COVID, and people accused him of enjoying the irony too much.  He responded that he loves his father-in-law, and was trying to make a point about how serious COVID is.

2.  CARDI B is apologizing after BOASTING about how big her Thanksgiving gathering was.  She Tweeted, quote, “12 kids and 25 adults over the holidays.  It was lit!!  After getting backlash, she said, quote, “Sorry, my bad.  [I] wasn’t trying to make nobody feel bad.  I just had my family in my home for the first time and it felt so good and uplifted me.  I spent soo much money getting everyone tested, but it felt worth it.  I wasn’t trying to offend no one.

3.  According to a poll on celebrity couples, we’re not holding out much hope for Megan Fox and Machine Gun KellyCamila Cabello and Shawn Mendes, or Kim and Kanye.  But Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, and Beyoncé and Jay-Z are looking pretty solid.   RIHANNA and A$AP ROCKY are reportedly a couple.  They’ve known each other for years.  He opened for her in 2013, and this past summer, she used him in her Fenty Skin campaign.

4.  FELICITY HUFFMAN has scored her first post-prison gig.  She’ll star in an ABC comedy based on Susan Savage, the real-life owner of a Triple-A baseball team called the Sacramento River Cats.  (Full Story)

Avoid Cyber Mistakes today! 

Lots of great deals for Cyber Monday this year.  But here are five mistakes to avoid if you’re shopping online today . . .

1.  Shopping for the sake of a sale.  A lot of people buy stuff JUST because it’s on sale.  So ask yourself if you’re actually excited about the product, or did they trick you into buying something you don’t actually want.

2.  Think about delivery times.  There’s still plenty of time for the post office to deliver stuff, but warehouses have had staffing issues during the pandemic.  So double-check the estimated shipping dates before you buy anything.

3.  Don’t wait until tonight to start shopping.  A lot of stuff will be sold out by then.  So if you want the best deals, start early.

4.  Don’t ignore travel deals this year.  Airlines and hotels are offering even crazier deals because of COVID.  And you can book way ahead of time for later next year.

5.  Don’t get scammed.  Remember, if something seems too good to be true, it probably is.  So make sure you really trust the website before you give them your credit card info.

Waffle House Beer

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 .  Waffle House is about to release its first-ever BEER. They teamed up with Oconee Brewing Company in Georgia to make a red ale called Bacon & Kegs.  It’s, quote, “bacon infused” and apparently it smells just like bacon when you crack it open. If you’re interested, it’ll only be available from the brewery . . . not in Waffle House’s stores, unfortunately.  It goes on sale on December 18th.

This hasn’t been a good year for the name “Karen” . . . and it seems like quite a few of them are about to call up Tinder and ask to speak to the manager.  According to a new study, women named Karen say their name is ruining their love lives.  They’re getting 31% fewer matches on dating apps than last year and 33% fewer responses to messages they send.  Even women who use a different spelling like C-A-R-E-N or K-A-R-I-N have seen a 22% drop in matches.

 

 

Thanksgiving Gear

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.  Stuffing-themed 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.

(Plenty of Fish)

 

 

Those Dreaded Thanksgiving Days

A survey found the top things we’re DREADING about Thanksgiving include dishes, cooking, shopping, too much noise, and dealing with extended family. It might be tough to celebrate Thanksgiving with your ENTIRE family this year.  But not everyone thinks that’s a bad thing. A new survey found that dealing with difficult family members is one of the top things we DREAD about Thanksgiving.  Here’s the Top 10.

 

And Finally A Baby Boy

A couple in Michigan with 14 sons had another baby on Thursday . . . and it’s a girl.  There’s no word on whether they’re going to stop having kids now. Maybe this couple can finally take a breather. There’s a couple in Lakeview, Michigan that has 14 SONS.  And on Thursday, they had their 15th child . . . and it’s a GIRL.  45-year-old Kateri Schwandt and her husband, 45-year-old Jay Schwandt, had their daughter Maggie on Thursday.  Yes, they’re 45 and have 15 kids.  Their oldest is 28, which means they had him after they got married right out of high school.  They had three sons by the time they were done with college . . . but they both still went on to get advanced degrees.  There’s no word on whether they’re planning on having any more kids, or if this daughter is FINALLY their license to stop.

Ten Hilariously bad celeb Halloween Costumes This Year!

https://www.instagram.com/p/CHDQfNklVyx/?utm_source=ig_embed

A list of this year’s 10 WORST celebrity Halloween costumes includes:  Shawn Mendes dressing as a “beat-up” version of himself, Vanessa Hudgens in a lazy sexy elf costume, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt went as a cat . . . with a cardigan and a purse?  The COVID-19 pandemic wasn’t going to stop Hollywood from celebrating Halloween . . . but in some cases, it probably SHOULD’VE.  Buzzfeed.com has a list of celebrities who “didn’t exactly nail their Halloween costumes,” which is a nice way of saying “They’re the worst we’ve seen.”

 

 

McRib Makes 2020 better

The people at McDonald’s clearly looked around, saw everything going on, and said, “You know what people NEED?  Processed and sculpted mystery meat drowned in mild barbecue sauce.”  McDonald’s is bringing back the McRib this year, like they do around this time every year.  But this year it’s going nationwide.  For the past eight years, they’ve only brought it back to some of their stores, not all of ’em.They’re scheduled to hit all 14,400 McDonald’s stores nationwide exactly one month from today.

 

Time To Get Ill

In case you forgot to set your clocks back this weekend, you are now late for everything, it seems like even MORE people get on board with never changing the clocks again. 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.  And 50% say they’d like to get rid of Standard Time. Obviously, there’s some overlap between those groups from people who just want to stop the time changes, regardless of whether we get rid of Daylight Saving Time or Standard Time to make that happen.

 

 

That’s Awkward

The average person has four awkward or embarrassing situations a month because we misheard what someone said, according to a new survey.  And two-thirds of us have had to PRETEND we understood someone when we didn’t. It was hard enough to always understand everything people were saying BEFORE masks.  Now?  No chance. According to a new survey, the average person has four awkward or embarrassing situations a month because we misheard what someone said. And here are some of the biggest mistakes people make because they misheard something . . .

1.  20% have asked for directions, not understood them, and gone to the wrong place.

2.  20% have called someone by the wrong name repeatedly.

3.  14% have screwed something up at work.

4.  And 5% have worn inappropriate clothes to an event because they misheard the dress code.

The survey also found two-thirds of us have had to PRETEND we understood someone when we didn’t.

Kanye Gives Kim The Gift Of Hologram Dead Dad

 KANYE WEST gave KIM KARDASHIAN a hologram of her dad ROBERT KARDASHIAN for her 40th birthday.  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.”
