*See, it doesn’t look so bad, right?
You know the worse thing in the world is to get to work or school and the crispy salad you packed at home only a few hours before is now soggy.
Ugh! Makes you gag to think about it right? Well, you may find this hard to believe, but now there’s an app for that.
Naw, not an app, but a trend called The Salad In A Jar!” And if you build it according to these tips, soggy salad is sure to be a thing of the past. Continue reading
*In a horrific turn of events, Chris Elvis, a man of Nigerian descent, has been arrested for the alleged murder of his son, Godrich, (pictured).
The 4-year-old was apparently beaten to death by his father, who had padlocked his mouth to prevent him from screaming as the ‘evil’ was being beaten out of him, according to the International Business Times. Continue reading
Thou shalt not wear panties to church, says one pastor in Kenya
*A pastor in Kenya feels that when women wear underwear, they are not as close to God as they should be so…
Off with your drawers and bras, women!
According to the Kenyan Post, Reverend Njohi said women who attend his services at the Lord’s Propeller Redemption Church in Nairobi are forbidden from wearing bras and underwear. Njohi said when going to church, people need to be “free in body and spirit” so they can receive Christ.
Now, I don’t mean any disrespect here but, can’t you just picture God shaking his head and saying, “Forgive Him my people, he done lost his mind.” Continue reading

I don’t think there is a person alive that watched The Academy Awards and don’t think Ellen DeGeneres is one of the greatest hosts the show has ever had.
The second-time host of the arguably most watched awards show coming out of Hollywood, has such a natural way with comedy; so down-played you don’t even know you’re in the midst of a skit until the people start laughing…and then you realize the joke is on you!
Not only did she get the munchies in the midst of the show and decide to order pizza for everyone within range of getting a Styrofoam plate (did the pizza guy look a little embarrassed to you?), but you’ve got to remember when she decided she wanted to “break a Twitter record” and rallied a group of folks together for a selfie?
Well the proud owner of that photo is wearing a big grin right now. Continue reading
*His football coach says 28 colleges were trying to sign him, but now, instead of choosing which team to play for, 17-year-old Sharieff Rhaheed-Muhammad, a senior at Ft. Pierce Central High, is under arrest for lewd and lascivious behavior with a 14-year-old girl.
Though he has already committed to play his college ball at the University of Louisville on a full scholarship, this dude’s career could very well be over before it even gets started.
Dumb move, if he’s guilty, right? Continue reading
Joseph Earl Jackson claims he was fired because he wouldn’t comply with advances made by his white female boss and a co-worker.
*Sexual harassment stinks, no matter who its aimed at, as one African American man found out.
For seven months Joseph Earl Jackson alleged that he endured vulgar advances and sexual innuendos from two white female bosses who treated him like a “piece of meat” and when he didn’t reciprocate, he was fired.
Jackson says his supervisors at Open Communications Omnimedia in Chelsea, where he worked in public relations, flirted with him, fondled him and even asked him to take part in a salacious “bang sesh.”
Now he’s taking them to court. Continue reading
Abie Kyle Ikhinmwin was arrested last week after filming officers. KENS 5 screenshot
Where is the justice, you may ask? Even when you are attempting to compliment police officers, your actions can be mistaken.
Just ask Nigerian-born, San Antonio resident Abie Kyle Ikhinmwin, who was sitting at a bus stop with her bike parked nearby. As a former intern at the Bexar County district attorney’s office, she was spending her time filming speed traps – police officers stopping drivers for going too fast.
But this was no attempt to shame the officers. According to KENS 5, she actually posted positive officer news to her friends on Facebook that read:
“This is where our funding is going, straight into hard police work.”
Which makes what happened next so incredibly hard to believe.
*Are of kind of wishing your luck would kick in right about now. Could you use an extra million dollars?
Congrats go out to 26-year-old Gregory Jarrett, a resident of the Atlanta suburb of Decatur, Georgia, who was cleaning his room and happened to discover a winning lottery ticket….worth one million dollars!!!
I swear, this is the stuff that dreams are made of. How many of us have imagined something like this happening to us?
Turns out Jarrett had matched five numbers in the PowerBall drawing of Jan. 15, but had apparently forgotten he had played. Continue reading
