Man Burns Down Parents’ House, Kills Three Pets Trying To Exterminate Ants

1490065642451

*I’m going to call this one:  Mother Nature 1, Dumb Ass Man 0.

A fire marshal in Maine says a man burned down his parent’s house and killed three pets while trying to exterminate ants in the basement. 

Devon Doucette’s weapon of choice during his entomological battle?  Wooden matches.

That fits.  You’d have had to be wooded-headed to cook THAT plan up.  

One of Doucette’s matches ignited something combustible that was being stored in the basement, investigators say.  The fire spread…like wildfire to the rest of the home.

The fire killed two cats and one dog, according to authorities, who also say that criminal charges are not likely.

By all reports, the ants remain unscathed. Continue reading

apple-red-iphone

*I understand that we’re a litigious society that increasing finds fault with everyone but ourselves, but COME ON!

Apple’s just announced that a new fire engine red iPhone is headed to market, but who knew that these babies are literally on fire!!!

A 32-year-old man hopped into the bathtub with his iPhone in his hand, while it was plugged into the wall via an extension cord.

Need I go on?

Dude fried himself.  

His wife found his body.  His burns were so severe she thought he’d been attacked.   Continue reading

Suspected Pedophile Lured to Location, Then Saran-Wrapped to Pole for Public Display

Pedophile wraped up

*Well here’s a sure-fire way to trap and humiliate a pervert: Lure him in using his perversion, then wrap his ass to a road sign. That is exactly what a group of vigilantes in the Ukraine did to a 22-year-old man they suspect was a pedophile after learning he had been sending photos of his private parts to a 14-year-old girl online.

Someone is bound to ask the “elephant-in-the-room question: what happened…any why?”

…and you know they did!

The man, said to be from south-eastern Ukraine’s Zaporizhia Oblast region, was invited on a date with a fictitious 14-year-old named “Diana.”

Dude actually showed up, white rose in hand. Continue reading

See Kong and Brie Larson’s Tank Top On As Big A Screen As You Can Find

*Back in the old days, you had to wait for summer for a cinematic summer blockbuster. Sounds reasonable, right? Well, thanks to Kong: Skull Island, summer has arrived — at the movies, at least — a few months early.

It only took 84 years for Hollywood to make a worthy successor to the original King Kong. which terrified audiences when it debuted in 1933 as one of Tinsel Town’s first “talkies.” No, I was NOT there…but I’m told theaters had to hire medical professionals to be on hand during screenings, as audiences members routinely fainted when Kong showed up on screen.

King Kong 1

Successors to the king’s throne have always fallen a little short. 1933’s Son Of Kong was cute but not thrilling, the 1976 version was downright cheesy (with a guy in an ape suit in the title role), and Peter Jackson’s 2005 version improved upon the special effects of the original but never found Kong’s heart. And let’s not even mention 1962’s awful King Kong vs. Godzilla.

This time around, they finally got it right. Kong: Skull Island debuts just a week before Hollywood will trot out another “beauty and the beast” tale that’s as old as time, but THIS beast isn’t singing Alan Menken tunes. Continue reading

*Hahahahaha. I am so sorry but I can’t stop laughing. The mere thought of this leaves me in stitches. I don’t want to give anyone any ideas but, dang! A group of 100 people had the audacity to sit down at the Hotel Karmen restaurant in Bembibre in northern Spain for a banquet. According to staff, they  ate hearty! They had approximately 30 bottles of wine, entrees and appetizers.

But just as the wait persons were preparing to serve coffee and dessert… Continue reading

This Jack Russell Terrier Didn’t Win the Prize, But Got All the Attention (Watch!)

Olly
“Olly”

*Animals. You’ve gotta love ’em. I ran across a video where dogs were doing some sort of competition. One dog, a Jack Russell Terrier named “Olly” obviously didn’t get the memo that this is a competition and decided to do his own thing.

What a hoot! The poor trainer, or guider, or whatever you call the person eventually just gave up.

But it was the hysterical Face-plant (you’ll understand after watching the video below) and what followed that will have you rolling.

The only thing funnier than the little dog himself, is the British narrator.  Continue reading

Rest in Peace…We Can Only Hope So (See Unusual Funeral Customs Around the World)

We're so boring.
We’re so boring.

*Looking at these rather creative ways of sending loved ones “home” may help you to forget how sad it is that they’re gone. Sure, it’ll hit you later, but for now…not so much.

People in other parts of the world obviously don’t look at funerals the way we do here in the states. ‘Nuff said. Take a look for yourself. 

Don’t worry, its more “interesting” than gross.

Uncle Drew is buried WHERE?

Funerals, tree trunk

…in this tree trunk. Continue reading
