Holy Crap! Massive Alligator Just Walks on By as Woman Videotapes (Look!)

alligator, huge

*La dee dah. Imagine you’re just walking along, looking up and all around you, being thankful. And then you stop in your tracks just as a massive-sized alligator crosses your path, “Oh excuse me, I’m just going over here” he seems to say as he strolls on by. This was a moment in the life of a woman visiting?Circle B Bar Reserve near Lakeland, Florida. She described the video she took of a 12-foot, possibly 800 pound alligator who strolled across the path she was walking on “very exciting.”

Yes she was?is the answer to the question I know crossed your mind just now.

The woman, who took the video over the weekend appears to be standing too close for comfort, but she said she was “close enough” but at a safe distance. Continue reading

‘It’s Been a Long Week, I Was Tired’ Says Nanny Who Used Hot Iron to Discipline Toddler (Watch)

woman burns toddler

*A New York woman hired to be nanny to a 2-year-old boy has been arrested and?charged with assault, endangerment, and criminal possession of a weapon after a Nanny-cam caught her using a hot curling iron to punish the child.

At first 21-year-old?Nosipho Nxumalo told a judge she was not guilty after?the child, Alexander Persaud, told his mom that the woman burned him.

But then the boy’s mother, Angela Persaud, checked the Nanny cam they had placed in the child’s bedroom.

Nxumalo was arrested.

In the WGN-TV video below you could see the child flinching as the nanny burned his feet and hands.

?She pulled out the curling iron several times. She heated it up,? Persaud told the station. ?You see her showing him that it?s going to be hot, and, ?I?m going to use it on you.? You see her yelling at him. You see her grab him a few times.? Continue reading

People Have Done Some CRAZY SH*T in Job Interviews, Check Out these Insane Actions!

interview1-u42z40

*Ah, the dreaded job interview. Nail biting time for some folks, while others, like me (blame it on a background in theatre) see it as just another audition and welcome the challenge.

Nerves can play you like a fiddle. They can make you do the damndest things. I’ve seen people laugh uncontrollably when they’re nervous, shut down completely, and have anxiety attacks so severe that sound reasoning becomes impossible.

But what you will see coming up takes?the entire cake. They are some of the STRANGEST things that people have done in job interviews. Recognize any of ’em? I don’t know you personally so if you?see yourself?it was quite by accident. No offense. The interviewer?didn’t contact me about you. Continue reading

Boy’s Born With It: Maybelline’s First Male Face

You better werk, Manny!
You better werk, Manny Gutierrez!

*I’m not quite sure what “it” is, as I never quite “got” Maybelline’s iconic “Maybe she’s born with it” tagline, but whatever “it” is, male beauty vlogger Manny Gutierrez has clearly got it. ?He’s just been hired as Maybelline’s first male face. ?

Maybe “it” is the nerve to be exactly who you are in the face of people who will say all kinds of things about you while you’re doing it. ?Or maybe “it” is simply the ability to rock mascara et al with the best of the ladies. ?I’ve not seen a guy flaunt full-on makeup — without changing gender expression, which is different than gender identity — so well since Boy George of Culture Club fame. ??

Just looking around this coffee shop where I’m parked this morning, Gutierrez is putting everyone up in here — male and female — to absolute shame. ? Continue reading

*Who needs a flak jacket when you have a laptop?

I just bought a new MacBook Pro with the TouchBar.

Oh yes, I did. ?LOVE IT. ?But I was experiencing a little buyer’s remorse — you pay a premium for Apple’s toys, after all — as I flipped on the news for the first time one day late last week, and heard that a MacBook Pro’s had saved a man’s life. ?

I’m keeping mine. ?And as soon as I’m done working today, I’m going to buy a new backpack for it. ?Keep reading, and you’ll understand all of that!? Continue reading

‘I Love You More’ Croc Best Buddies with Fisherman Who Helped Him (Pictures)

*Just in case you think you might be seeing things as you look at the photo above. You kind of are. You are seeing a crocodile named ‘Poncho’ kissing a man named Chito Shedden, a fisherman who saw him injured and alone, and rounded up a group of brave friends to lift the croc and take him to safety.

The reptile reportedly lay dying on a river bank in Siquirres, Costa Rica when the fisherman spotted him. Snedden, a tour guide by trade, kind of fancies himself as an amateur naturalist and as such has learned a few things.

Obviously, how to wrangle in a crocodile without being eaten alive is one! Continue reading

‘Great Service, [We] Don’t Tip Black People’ Left on Receipt for Va. Waitress

Kelly Carter

Kelly Carter

*Instead of just eating, paying and getting the phuck out, one 20-something white couple decided to write a despicable note on the receipt of the waitress they say had just provided “Great service” to them.

The note on the stained receipt read, “great service don’t tip black people.”

Now I know racism is still alive and well in these United States of America, but why do I feel like vomiting every time I see it in black and white?

Of course waitress Kelly Carter was stunned, and her boss at Anita’s New Mexico Style Cafe in Ashburn, Virginia, Tommy Tellez Sr., embarrassed.

He told WJLA: ?I?m appalled. This is so disheartening.? He says Carter is such a loyal employee and beloved by the customers.

?She has a following,? Tellez said. ?Her philosophy for customer service is way beyond the norm, and we?re really happy to have her.?

According to what Carter told WJLA, the couple acted like anyone else. They gave no indication whatsoever that they were racists. She said the woman even complimented the food. Continue reading

David Blaine

*Damn David, you’re my favorites, but WTF? ?If you’re a magic buff like I am, you no doubt know who David Blaine is. Blaine is the amazing illusionist and endurance artist who never wasted time on stupid card tricks. No, he started off blowing folks’ minds levitating; doing crazy things like walking on water (no offense, Jesus), being buried alive and even hanging upside down for 40 hours. He definitely thinks out of the box, But this time he went too far and almost killed himself. He shot himself in the mouth.

I’ll give you a minute to absorb that.

You a’iight? Due to extreme luck, or whatever you may choose to call it…so is he.

Blaine’s stunt actually went wrong during his Beyond Magic show last November. But it was only broadcast on E4 on Saturday night during a clip showing him spitting frogs out of his mouth into the audience.

Yeah, he can be pretty gross too. Continue reading
