John Cleese says he’s not bothered by prospect of death

TwitterFacebook

“Most of the best people are dead.” 

That kind of goes for most of the worst people too, seeing as most of whoever’s existed has died, but it’s still catchy. It’s also typical John Cleese.

Cleese went on Fallon last night and talked about old age and impending death. Surprise surprise, he does so using surreal humour. 

The seventy-seven year old (he has trouble remembering that at first) is going on tour in the US with screenings of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Possibly more affronting than the f-bombs Cleese casually lobs into the conversation is the fact he says he doesn’t like the film. He must be lying, right?  Read more…

Woman shuts down dude who used her picture in a sexist meme

TwitterFacebook

Memes are great, but maybe don’t use them to be a total jerk.

Twitter user Leyton Mokgerepi‏ tried his best attempt at a popular meme format on Tuesday, but failed miserably and publicly in his attempt. 

The comparative format’s pretty simple and can be applied to a variety of situations, however, this version is pretty gross and exists only to body shame women. “Girls that I like vs girls that like me,” the post reads, along with images of two women. 

While comparative memes are often meant to be used in a self-depreciating or sarcastic manner, Mokgerepi’s version is sexist, and crossed a major line when he used two images of real people, and shamed the woman on the right for her body type. Read more…

Teen praised after returning lost wallet with $1,500 inside

TwitterFacebook

A teen is receiving praise on the internet after returning a wallet he found with $1,500 cash inside.

Melissa Vang posted a short clip to Facebook on Friday showing a young man waving a wallet at the security camera pointed at her front porch. After a few moments, the teen leaves the wallet on the home’s welcome mat, and slowly takes off. 

“My husband dropped his wallet (with hundreds of dollars and all his credit cards) in our drive way and this gentleman picked it up and left it at our doorstep,” Vang wrote on Facebook.

The woman later tracked the young man down, and says she thanked him and rewarded him with $150 for his actions. Read more…

Ruthless runner nicknamed the ‘Mad Pooper’ because … well …

TwitterFacebook

The city of Colorado Springs is in crisis over the unknown runner who’s tearing across the city and leaving a trail of poop in her wake.

Dubbed the “Mad Pooper,” the unidentified runner was the subject of an excellent KKTV segment that details her reign of terror. 

Per the local news affiliate, the runner consistently defecates on the sidewalk outside a local family’s home. Homeowner Cathy Budde says she’d expected an end to the madness after confronting the runner in person one fateful day.

“I thought for sure she’s mortified, it was an accident, she’ll go get a dog bag, come back, clean it up, and never run here ever again,” she said. “Not the case.” Read more…

TwitterFacebook

Everyone receives an odd email every so often, but when it’s from a trusted site like Amazon and it’s sent to masses, people tend to freak out a little.

“Hello Amazon Customer,” the email reads. “Someone great recently purchased a gift from your baby registry!” Read more…
