Perhaps you’re busy catching up on all the movies you missed the first time around before the Oscars. That is, unless you’re easily distracted by these little baby Basset puppies. We know. It happens to us ALL the time.
I mean, have you SEEN the footage of the meteorite that exploded over Russia? And that wasn’t the only WTF moment people were talking about over these past seven days! Looking for the more obscure ones? It’s time for “The Week In WHAT?!”
Centaurs = Aphrodisiacs?
Worried about going stag to your next family event? Post an ad for prospective dates on Craigslist! Oh, just don’t forget the insanely outside-the-box photo of yourself as a CENTAUR. At least, that’s what worked wonders for a pair of single bros living in New York. After being told it was “mandatory” for them to bring dates to their cousin’s wedding, they posted a note in the “activity partners” section of the popular classifieds site. Within a day, their not-so-indecent proposal went viral and netted over 500 responses. Ladies, if you’re up for a wildly mysterious night of wining and dining with a set of mythical quadrupeds, then you best reach out ASAP to nail down your own hunkahunka Burning Love adventure.
That Stress Ball On Your Desk Is Just Taking Up Space
There weren’t enough stress balls in the world to stop one warehouse worker in the town of Blackpool from unleashing his inner Hulk this week. Upon being notified of his pending layoff, Darren Baldwin allegedly flipped out, punched his boss and then pulled a couple of knives out on employees attempting to assuage him. He was originally hired to pack up boxes filled with – SURPRISE! – stress balls, leaving plenty at his disposal. Sounds like they were a defective batch. Unless, of course, he was pelting his co-workers with them instead.
The Starbucks Drink That Could Actually Kill You
A man in Seattle opted to celebrate his birthday by breaking the record for the most expensive drink ever ordered at Starbucks. The concoction, referred to as the Quadriginoctuple Frap, contained 48 shots of espresso as well as every flavor shot available at the location. When all was said and done, the ultra caffeinated beverage came in just under a Ulysses S. Grant at $47.30. Since he lived to tell about it, chances are most of the drink ended up in the garbage. You can probably think of a better way to spend fifty bucks on your next birthday. If not, I’d be glad to help you with that.
Pour One Out For Hotmail
Remember when Hotmail was all the rage? While some people were spending their hard-earned money to maintain an AOL account, Hotmail took the Internet by storm with its offer of free web-based email. As they say, all good things must be reinvented for the modern era. (Okay, so that’s not exactly how the saying goes.) Microsoft announced that Hotmail will be entirely replaced by Outlook, but don’t lament your outdated email address just yet. The company insists that the transition will be “seamless” and all @hotmail.com accounts will “stay the same.” However, if your account expired a long time ago, then feel free to hold a seance for the ghosts of spam or chain mail past.
And there you have this week in “WHAT?!” Can’t wait to see what’s in store for humanity next!
