    Folks I have a killer cat that has killed more birds, mice and squirrels than you can imagine. She has a pet door that allows her to come and go as she pleases. She just brought me, unharmed, a baby rabbit. The animal kingdom is hard to understand at times.

    •Melania Trump was spotted wearing Converse sneakers that retail for less than $50. •Michelle Obama was also a fan of wearing Converse — and Trump is no stranger to replicating her look. •Creating a more accessible style like Obama's has proved a brilliant political move for Trump. Spotted: Melania Trump wearing a brand for the people — Converse sneakers. The first lady donned a pair of white Chuck Taylors, which cost less than $50, during a visit to Florida in September. In November, when she hosted schoolchildren in the White House Kitchen Garden, Trump wore $65 Converse Jack Purcell sneakers....

    A sign reading “U SUCK” graced drivers’ commutes along Interstate Highway 5 in Washington State on Tuesday. A driver, Ruslan Kozlov, was traveling along I-5 about 1 mile before Exit 154B when he spotted the surprising message on an electronic billboard over the highway, Q13FOX reported. -snip- The Washington State Department of Transportation acknowledged the image was in fact real and blamed it on a “training error.” “This was an inappropriate message and we apologize if anyone was offended,” they said in a statement to Q13FOX. “This was due to a training error and clearly a mistake. We are taking...

    CNBC ^ | April 18 2018 | Sarah Whitten
    Fake Starbucks coupons have begun circulating on social media in the wake of protests over the arrests of two black men who had asked to use a Starbucks restroom. The coupons, which feature images of Starbucks beverages, the brand's iconic color green and bar codes, appear to offer "people of color" or "African-American heritage" free drinks. "This is completely false and in no way associated with Starbucks," a Starbucks spokeswoman told CNBC. The images are being shared on 4chan, a website that gained notoriety for spreading pro-Trump memes and messages during the 2016 presidential election. In 2017, members of this...

  • Not only was the screaming man in the Publix parking lot punching cars, he was naked

    A naked Florida man in a Publix parking lot kicked trash cans and jumped on and punched cars while screaming "I only had one beer!" cops say. Indian River County sheriff's deputies arrested Jonathan Boettcher, 46, and charged him with disorderly public intoxication. According to the arrest report, a deputy arrived at a Publix on U.S. 1 in Vero Beach Thursday night to find Boettcher swinging his arms and yelling while wearing no shirt and no underwear, but with basketball shorts around his ankles. The deputy said Boettcher was sweating uncontrollably as he yelled "I only had one beer!" and...
  • S.E. Cupp: Fox News Has ‘Increasingly Becoming Untethered’ from ‘What We Expect News to Be’

    HLN’s S.E. Cupp––who used to appear on Fox News––had some tough words for the network tonight over the ongoing scrutiny surrounding Sean Hannity. She reviewed the Fox News host’s “lawyer problem” over the revelation of his connection to Trump lawyer Michael Cohen and the lack-of-disclosure issue. “On this face, it seems obvious,” she said. “It’s a clear conflict of interest for Hannity to defend Cohen and his star client, the President of the United States, on his show regularly without revealing one of the reasons he might be doing so.” But the bigger issue here, Cupp argued, is about Fox...

    INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - People turn to firefighters for help during all kinds of emergencies, but this one might actually be a first. Wayne Township firefighters woke up in the middle of the night to a woman frantically pushing their doorbell. "As many times as the doorbell on the firehouse was pushed, the firefighters were quite certain that something bad was going on outside," said Wayne Township Fire Capt. Mike Pruitt. The woman was upset and saying she needed treatment. Not for herself, but for her pet raccoon. The reason? She said the raccoon had been exposed to a large amount...

    George Stephanopoulos may be in the news for his exclusive interview with fired former FBI Director James Comey, but recent claims made by his wife seem to be drawing even more interest. According to an excerpt from her upcoming tell-all book “Go Ask Ali,” Wentworth and her husband of 17 years are showing no signs of cooling down. Page Six writes of the book, in part: She adds in the advice book, out April 24 from Harper, that she feels left out at her “ladies’ lunches” because she can’t join the others in complaining about their terrible marriages. She recalls,...
  • Is this 1921 cartoon the first ever meme?

    BBC ^ | 04/16/2018 | Staff
    Is this 1921 cartoon the first recorded meme? When this comic was posted to Twitter, it caused excitement as people began to wonder if it was the first meme - a format-dependent joke, typically of a picture with a caption or subtitle - ever published. But we've found a version of the joke using the same format printed at least a year earlier in either 1919 or 1920. Both draw from the same template of the 'Expectations vs. Reality' joke, which contrasts two pictures side-by-side with an obvious discrepancy between them. It was subsequently reposted with new captions such as...

    Three men walk into a bar — the owner of a successful engineering company, the CEO of a private financial institution, and the president of a software company. No, wait. Let’s make that three men walk into an upscale pub. After all, the men are high mucky mucks. They find a semicircular booth toward the back of the place, which allows them to observe everyone in the pub and still maintain a semblance of anonymity. After all, in their respective worlds, they are big shots. After the waitress delivers the drink orders, those successful men turn into whining babies. What...
