Paper or Plastic?

A grocery store in Vancouver, B.C. is trying to get customers to not use plastic bags by offering up plastic bags that might not make you many friends on the bus.

Here are the bags, along with a few suggestions to make reusable bags a little more fun.

Driving Around in a Circle = Tornadoes

I can’t tell you how many… ahem… strange phone calls I’ve answered in the past nine years of working in the broadcasting business, but let’s just say it’s been enough to fill a book or two (Hmmmm… maybe soon).

A new station in Scranton, PA has a segment where they air viewer phone calls and after a few tornadoes popping up in the area recently, one viewer claimed to know exactly why.

Driving around in a circle = tornadoes.

Makes sense.

Take a look:

Couch Shopping

I just bought a couch, but now I’m in need of a new one.

Thankfully, furniture stores are literally always having a sale (but if everything is always on sale, is it really ever on sale?).

Here’s a really long way of essentially saying, “I’m looking for a new couch.” Also, I like were IKEA’s head is at.

The Best Mother’s Day Gift: A Free $100 Bill and Blasted On Booze

The best part about being a parent is not the smiles, the unconditional love, the laughs, or even the fact that you get to raise a little piece of you and your significant other to be an upstanding citizen of the world.

No. It’s definitely the endless supply of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese and chicken nuggets that fill your house. Your kid only needs 6 chicken nuggets, but you make 18. Just in case. Yeah, your kid can only eat 1/4 of a box of Kraft Mac and Cheese, but you better make 2 boxes, just in case.

The company that has been giving back to deprived dads for so long is now wanting to give back to moms this Mother’s Day.

If you’re looking for that perfect last-minute Mother’s Day gift, here’s all you need to know: Get her a free $100 and blasted on booze. Here’s how. You’re welcome.

 

Shrimp are doing cocaine in the rural rivers of the UK

The oceans are incredibly important to life on Earth and it is my belief that we must protect them at all costs. The plastic waste pollution in our planet’s oceans is quite concerning. There’s a giant floating mass of plastic bigger than Texas floating in the Pacific for crying out loud!

However, on Wednesday, I came across the result of an alarming new study released this week from King’s College London in collaboration with the University of Suffolk that says cocaine was found in the system of shrimp caught in rural rivers of Suffolk County.

Of course, it was! We’re polluting their waterways with our Starbucks cups! How else are they supposed to cope?

So, the study didn’t outright say “Shrimp are doing cocaine”, however, am I expected to believe that drug dealers are just dumping enough coke into the rivers of Suffolk County to get shrimp high on coke? You tell me which one is more likely.

Or, just watch this video and I’ll explain everything, including how we can confront this potential epidemic head-on.

And if you enjoy pictures relating to animals and cocaine, I drew this a while ago after reading about Pablo Escobar’s hippos running around Mexico.
