There’s nothing quite like kicking off the weekend by celebrating Pi Day! Anyone else deal with a nasty pie hangover during the Ides of March? Too bad because the holidays keep on coming with St. Patrick’s Day up next. Get ready to rock out in your finest green fashions and enjoy even more delectable treats.
Of course, if you need a breather from all of these back-to-back celebrations, then you’re in luck (of the Irish). Cheers to an all new “The Week In WHAT?!“
Not By the Hair on My Chinny Chin Chin
Men who can’t grow out their beards in the style of Hollywood’s biggest stars are now seeking out ways to make up for their burly shortcomings. At least, that’s one potential reason for undergoing a facial hair implant procedure, which is quickly becoming all the rage. How does it work? A doctor spends an entire day removing complete hair follicles from a lusciously lavish area of a patient’s body, then carefully inserts them into the face. Whether a guy is simply desperate for a natural looking five-o’clock shadow or hoping to grow out a full-fledged Gandalf, it’ll set him back $10K. Although, the beard will surely pay for itself in time.
Bear With Me
Few things are as scary as being stuck in a car waiting for help to arrive while a grizzly bear approaches from the distance. That’s why a Toronto cab driver quickly called 911 for help upon finding himself in that exact situation after dropping off a passenger. As police arrived, they spotted the alleged bear tracks in the snow too. However, after further investigation, authorities determined that the large animal in question happened to be a fluffy 150-pound Newfoundland belonging to the passenger’s in-laws. Everyone happened to be correct in their assessment as the happy pup’s name turned out to be “Bear.” When asked for comment, Bear simply raised his head to deliver a “Who? Me?” look.
A Retweet, A Retweet, My Kingdom for a Retweet
Nowadays, a retweet is almost as valuable as local currency. Almost. So, it’s no surprise that some people take things a bit too far in their quest for Twitter supremacy. One man in Los Angeles recently offered to shoot an innocent stranger walking down his block in exchange for a mere 100 retweets. He even included a Twitpic of his rifle, which was aimed out the window. Fortunately, someone alerted police to his pitch for fame and foiled the plan. Another case successfully closed for the TwitPoPo!
Cookie, Cookie? COOKIE!
A Korean mother’s lesson in safety went viral thanks to her precocious toddler’s response. She sat her adorably happy daughter down to review how she should respond if a stranger were to offer her cookies, ice cream or other childhood treasures. Check out what all the fuss is about.
And there you have this week in “WHAT?!” Can’t wait to see what’s in store for humanity next!
