04/27/2017 - Some news headlines are self explanatory, while others leave you scratching your head. " Overly Obese body starts funeral home fire " is one of those headlines that make you wonder, what the hell?! On Tuesday at a funeral home in Cincinnati, while cremating a body, the furnace got a bit too hot and managed to set some boxes on fire. Luckily, no significant damage was done. The fire started because the body being cremated was that of an “ overly obese ” individual, which causes the furnace to get hotter because of the excessive burning fat. Essentially, it’s a grease fire. You really have to feel bad for the family in this instance. As if it’s not bad enough that they lost their loved one, they also have to hear about how they were “ overly obese ” on the news.
04/27/2017 - United's PR disaster just keep rolling along! First, they wouldn't allow two girls to board a flight because they were wearing leggings. Then, an elderly man was bloodied and dragged off a plane for refusing to give up his seat to a United employee. After that, a couple was kicked off the flight that was supposed to take them to their wedding in Costa Rica! And now, this. United has killed a big bunny. OK, that may be unfair, but it's kind of true. Simon, a 3-foot-long, 10-month-old Continental Giant rabbit was on a flight from London's Heathrow Airport to Chicago's O'Hare Airport. But upon arrival in the Windy City, Simon was found dead. Simon's handler said that the rabbit was healthy and in tip top shape before the flight, in which he was to be delivered to his new owner. He was the offspring of a rabbit that currently holds the Guinness World Record for being the largest rabbit, and Simon could have potentially surpassed that size. United said that they were " saddened to hear this news" and were working closely with the rabbit's owner.

After being rescued in a mission that took firefighters a few hours, Marisa was charged with six counts of mischief, whatever that means. Rob Wonfor, the firefighter who climbed up the crane in order to bring Marisa down, said that the climb was extremely hard. Rob also wonders how she was able to accomplish this feat while wearing two inch high heel boots. Also, she did the climb with no rigging or harness. How?!

04/27/2017 - Ideas can come from literally anywhere. Some ideas come while watching TV, while others come when you are taking a dump. This idea came from an entrepreneur who thinks that it’s a good idea to sit and watch traffic. Tom Battista, the founder of Milktooth and Bluebeard (two restaurants in Indianapolis) and the one-time stage manager for Jimmy Buffet for 25 years, came up with the idea to put seats up in the middle of the I-65 and I-70 merge area, so that people can sit and watch the traffic. The project is called " The Idle, A Point of View. " How can this guy think that sitting around watching cars drive by is a thing that normal people want to do? Surprisingly enough, a lot of people are on board with this idea. At first the Federal Highway Administration said no, but after a little persuading, they changed their tune and said yes to the idea. The area would comprise of three rows of seats and a sunshade for the viewers. To keep viewers safe, there will be a fence put up to keep people from wandering on to the highway. How about the vehicles traveling 75+ mph through the fence?? Is that not a concern for anyone?
04/27/2017 - Jesse Watters from Fox News caught a lot of heat yesterday when he said something suggestive about Ivanka Trump on " The Five. " Watters says that he was misunderstood and his comments were taken out of context. On the show, they played a clip of the President's daughter speaking at the women's summit in Germany, and her voice was a little low-pitched and hoarse. Watters then said that he really liked how she was talking into the mic, and that's the comment that's bringing the backlash. Watters claims that he meant that he likes how Trump sounded like a smooth jazz DJ, and not that he liked the phallic nature of her holding the microphone.
