    Maybe liberals using their control of the media and education establishments to fill the brains of the impressionable with toxic lunacy isn’t the main problem after all. Maybe it’s soy: ***VIDEO ON LINK*** This begs a chicken and egg question. Are moonbats moonbats because they drink soy? Or do they drink soy because they are moonbats? The answer is likely yes to both, creating a vicious cycle that within a couple of generations could reduce us to a man-free society of squishy-soft P.C. progressives.

    The interracial stuff isn’t cutting edge anymore. So Starbucks has to cap off this Christmas ad with lesbian lovebirds: ***VIDEO ON LINK**** Starbucks appears to confirm the allegation that a lesbian couple is featured on the company’s Christ-free Christmas cup: ***TWEET ON LINK*** Moonbats have finally found a use for Christmas; it can be an opportunity to thumb their noses at Christian values.

    One in a series of occasional articles examining how President Trump’s ascendance and early moves have altered expectations and reality. This story is the second of three gauging those effects in one Pennsylvania county.]Chad Eisenhart glanced at the image on his phone: a white, beefy face, partially obscured by ski goggles. The man wore a military-style helmet, backpack, and white polo shirt and was marching in loose formation with other men in helmets. Charlottesville, Eisenhart quickly realized. He looked closer with growing unease. The marcher looked familiar, like one of Eisenhart’s employees at Carryout Courier, a small business that shuttles...

    A man who always joked that he didn't want to venture into the afterlife hungry got his wish when he was buried with two cheesesteaks from his favorite sandwich shop — Pat's King of Steaks in Philadelphia. According to his grandson, Dominic Lussi, when asked what he wanted to take with him when he died, Richard Lussi replied, "What do you think? Pat's cheesesteak!" "No onions," his grandson said he would say, "because they'll come back to haunt me."

    Perhaps you prefer almond milk in your morning porridge, take soya in your tea and enjoy regular turmeric lattes. But have you ever tried a camel-ccino? If not, dairy doubters, chances are that it won't be long before you do. Asda announced last week that it will soon be stocking camel's milk in selected stores. The product is supplied by long-life milk brand Camelicious, which is owned by the ruler of Dubai, Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Priced at £2.85 for 235ml, it's not cheap - but it means that the milk will be more accessible to people in the...

    If I told you there's a new kind of medicine that could heal you, but it was made from germs, would you take it? If you’re open to the idea – or maybe because it sounds gross – then hang with me and let’s start here. We see germs as a threat, and we've gotten really good at killing the ones that cause infections with things like hand sanitizers and antibiotics. In fact, since 1950 the rate of infectious diseases, like measles, mumps and TB has plummeted. But during that same time, chronic diseases, including asthma, diabetes and Crohn’s disease...

    Christmas dinner just wouldn't be Christmas dinner without turkey and all the trimmings in the UK and the US. But a fascinating photo series reveals that these countries are almost the only ones that celebrate by eating these foods. Twenty-five families from across the world were asked what they tuck into on December 25 by Christmas tree maker Balsam Hill, and some of the meals are very different to a traditional roast dinner. From slices of veal in a creamy tuna sauce to a starter of goat soup, these are the most unusual Christmas dinners that families enjoy on the...

    We would eat a whole tube of the stuffing flavorThe hardest part of Thanksgiving is all the cooking and clean-up. But what if you could eliminate those steps—because every single dish in your Thanksgiving meal was actually potato chips? The mad flavor scientists at the Pringle factory have you covered: They just rolled out an entire Thanksgiving dinner in potato chip form. That's right—a tray with Pringles in the following flavors: Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Stuffing, Mac & Cheese, Creamed Corn, Green Bean Casserole, Cranberry Sauce, and Pumpkin Pie. If that sounds weird, well, our in-house Extra Crispy taste test was...

    The "cheese" is really more of a salty whipped topping, and it's greatI tried cheese tea and I hate to disappoint you, but it's not that weird. The drink, which originated in Taiwan, consists of a form of whipped cream cheese and salt added to hot and cold teas. The beverage has made its way to select cafes around the United States while becoming controversial, with social media commenters suggesting that the combination must be gross. To many, "cheese" and "tea" sound like a queasy combination—think covering your Earl Grey with a slice of mozzarella—and that was the overriding feeling...

Discovered hauling an avocado along the tracks at Greenpoint Avenue subway station in Brooklyn on Tuesday, this determined little rat truly embodies the undying millennial addiction to the coveted fruit. Documentary filmmaker Jessica Edwards managed to capture the little hero, posting an Instagram video of the little battler. Look, he even managed to get his avo off the...

    SNIP The press secretary for the mayor of New York City — America’s pizza epicenter — took to Twitter to claim that a Chicago pizzeria makes better pies than all of New York. “This is the best pizza in the United States and it’s not close,” Eric Phillips tweeted Saturday along with a photo depicting an amorphous pile of pepperoni and sauce that is purportedly a pie from some place called “Pequod’s Pizza.” That specious assessment did not sit well with Big Apple gourmands, who were quick to pile on the seemingly clueless Midwest native.

The 57-year-old, who has previously recorded series for the BBC and written books on exploration, was on a journey to rediscover the Yaifo tribe. In a post on his website before setting off titled ‘I may be some time’, adding ‘don’t try to rescue me, please – where I’m going in [Papua New Guinea] you won’t ever find me you know…) Mr Allen said he was looking to meet with the tribe 30 years after discovering them for the first...

    Here’s a bitter taste for you. Bill Penzey of Penzeys Spices says being upset at players in the National Football League (NFL) who protest during the national anthem is racist. In his Veterans Day email to customers, Penzey explained the reason for the players protesting: “For Veterans Day, out of respect for Veterans, can we all just be honest and admit that the NFL protests really are about racism?” Except they’re not. They supposedly started as protests against police treatment of minorities. And, of course, it’s impossible to separate the message from being a protest against America because it is...

    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Mushrooms may make our favorite pizza and pasta dishes taste delightfully better, but it turns out they may help keep our brains and hearts younger too. A new study finds that some of our favorite toadstools may have high concentrations of antioxidants with anti-aging benefits. Researchers at Penn State analyzed the chemical composition of a wide variety of types of mushrooms, finding that many contained high levels of ergothioneine and glutathione, both of which are important antioxidants. “What we found is that, without a doubt, mushrooms are highest dietary source of these two antioxidants taken together,...

    Last week, an 11-year-old milkshake lover named Bella Venezian was shocked to discover that a mandatory gratuity had been added to her bill at the Wayne Hills Diner in Wayne, New Jersey. Her mom, Melissa, had been to that same diner earlier in the day but did not receive any mysterious charges on her bill. As the local CBS news team soon discovered, the Wayne Hills Diner sometimes applies a “teen tax” when they suspect that younger customers might not tip. “It’s not how much she paid, it’s the simple fact she didn’t have a choice,” Melissa told CBS 2....
