Who In The Heck Put Poop In These Coke Cans?

Coke-Rexam-group-620x330

*In what has to be the grossest thing EVER, a discovery was made on a shipment of coca-cola at the Knockmore Hill facility in Lisburn, Ireland that has investigating police stumped. The cans-only shipment originated from a never-before-used supplier in Germany, with the expectation that the normally empty cans would soon be filled with pop.

…only thing is, the cans were NOT empty…they had human waste inside. 

I know. I know. WTF?

Like I said, police are stumped! 

How was it discovered you may ask…By the night shift! Workers peeked inside the cans after the machine they were using became clogged. Needless to say, they were shocked at what had caused the congestion. Continue reading

*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

TN Nail Salon Accused of Charging ‘Overweight People’ More for Pedicures

*Wow… Just wow. The internet is not too happy about a photo of a sign that was posted recently which read, “Sorry, but if you are overweight pedicures will be $45.”

Yes. Thinner people pay less for the same service.

The message, photographed by an unidentified woman, got thousands of shares after it was posted to Facebook. According to locals, the salon is Rose Nails in Tennessee.

The message went on in an attempt to justify why the cost was different for overweight people, saying it was…

?…due to service fees for pedicurists. Thank you!?  Continue reading

Former Celebrities Who Left Hollywood for ‘Regular’ Jobs

Freddie Prinze, Jr. I remember your daddy!

*You’ve heard the saying, “Everything that sparkles ain’t gold” right? Well, suffice it to say that doesn’t only apply to jewelry. In this case, it represents all of the people who have made it to the celebrity list…without the celebrity money. So what do they do?

Like the chorus of the old Silhouettes song sings: “Get A Job.”

Listen, the reality of the entertainment industry, in the event you didn’t know, is, everyone has a periodic lull. Nobody is working and getting paid in their craft all the time. Now let’s be real, if you’re making several million dollars an episode on a network TV gem or a blockbuster film, your pain is going to be different than the pain of someone making a fraction of that.

So it should be no big surprise that there are people whose name we may recognize that we may very well see standing behind the counter at the post office saying, “How can I help you.”

I’m not even going to front, I would have the hardest time keeping a straight face if I happened upon this. Continue reading

God is Good!…And These Five Extremely Wealthy Pastors Prove It!

*With all due respect, I started noticing a l-o-n-g time ago that being a preacher is one of the most lucrative “jobs” out there. Many of us in the Black community grew up listening to a preacher on the radio or watching a pastor on Sunday morning TV — as our household prepared for church. At the time, and I know I’m dating myself here, televangelist Billy Graham was the it preacher.  Little did we know how much of a big business church would become. 

Yes, God is good! Real good.

Just take a look at these preachers who have built an impressive amount of wealth from preaching the Word. Continue reading

Once You Go Mac, You’ll Never Go Back: A Look At Apple’s Newest Tech Toys

*Apple unveiled a few new products late last year, possibly to appease Apple fanatics until the new, 10th anniversary iPhones arrive later this year. Even after all of the routine pomp and circumstance of the new products coming to market, neither the MacBook Pro with the new Touch Bar, the wireless EarPods, nor the Series 2 Apple Watch were items I thought I needed.

After all, my 7 year old MacBook works just fine, right? (Not really. It is getting slower and slower by the day, and the battery lasts less than an hour between charges.) My wired ear buds work fine, right? (Not really. The right side is almost completely shorted out, and if I have to untangle those cords one more time, I may jump off of a building.) And I couldn?t have imagined wanting to wear a mini-iPhone on my wrist all day.

Given the imperfections of my aging tech toys, I decided to reach out to Apple and see if they?d be willing to let me demo some of the new stuff for a few days. It was a horrible decision on my part. Now that I?ve tried the new Apple toys, I don?t want to part with any of them!  Once you go Mac, you’ll never go back!   Continue reading

*Last week, I got to share details on the Officiser, designed to give users the complete benefits of a full cardiovascular workout while said users sit on their asses.

This week, my TNT editor asked me to up the ante and write up “…a delicious story…” that would be “…good reading with the morning coffee…”.  And so, dear readers, I present to you the i.Con Smart Condom.

In this age of rampant STD’s, I argue that ALL condoms are smart. But baby, this one’s GENIUS. Continue reading

*I?m all for innovation and enterprise, and marvel at those individuals who manage to cook up a contraption that we can?t imagine living without. The automobile. The light bulb. The television. New Coke (kidding — Google it). The microwave (my grandmother?s favorite — “How in God’s good name does it heat up the cup of coffee without heating the walls of the oven???,” she’d always ask ). The personal computer. And that ubiquitous smartphone.

And now, straight out of Korea, the home of Samsung, the Officiser is poised to blow up! ?

For those of us who spend a large portion of our day sitting, some geniuses have cooked up an ?invention? that allows us to move our lower bodies while typing away at the keyboard, watching television, or reading, thereby improving our circulation and overall health. Continue reading
