Boy Found Safe Inside Claw Crane Machine

Published by under Oddly Enough

A

According to the Omaha World-Herald, police in Lincoln, Neb., received a call Monday from a woman who said her son had slipped out of their apartment through an unlocked door while she was in the bathroom.

Fortunately, mother and son were soon reunited after patrons at a nearby bowling alley spotted the toddler sitting inside a claw machine. Details as to how the boy got into the machine are scarce; however, children have previously managed to climb their way into claw machines through the prize chute. [Continue Reading]

This is actually an incredible story. Not only did the kid sneak out, he managed to get to a bowling alley, then get into a claw machine. Imagine being a little kid in a claw machine. That’s like paradise. Still something awfully creepy about it.

This is One Contest NO Man Wants to Win

Published by under Oddly Enough

It’s time, once again, to make the little things count. The “Smallest Penis Contest,” a nutty competition which debuted last year, will return to Brooklyn’s Kings County Bar on June 14.

Per a media release, contestants will be judged in multiple categories, including “poise in both evening wear and bathing wear.” In addition to a cash prize (which can optionally be donated to charity), a “wee crown and scepter” will be awarded to the less-endowed man best exhibiting “extraordinary heart, talent, and chutzpa.” [Continue Reading]

I’ve been trying to figure out a reason why to enter this contest if your “small”. Seriously, I know you should embrace what God has given you but I cannot see one good reason for this to work out in a positive manner.

This Fish Ate What?!

Published by under Oddly Enough

DWP Dildo Discovered In Fish

Bjørn Frilund, 64, is a master baiter in his local village of Eidsbygda, Norway. He was slacking his line one morning when his attention got tugged to one of the cod in his fishing nets, according to the photo database WENN.

He quickly inserted his knife into the fish’s orifices, and found a big, pink sex toy. He swears it wasn’t his — the fish probably thought the dildo was a small octopus, and ate it, Frilund maintains. The fish was filleted and given away, while the dildo remains at Frilund’s house. [Continue Reading]

Well, that stinks to be that fish. I mean talk about the humiliation and ridicule this fish is going to face when he gets back in the water. His friends won’t talk to him, his parents will disown him – just for one little mistake. It’s sad.

The Squirrel That Caused $300,000 Worth of Damage

Published by under Oddly Enough

A

Officials say a wayward squirrel caused about $300,000 in damage to an eastern Indiana community center set to open in June. Fort Wayne Parks Department officials say the squirrel got into the electrical equipment of the building in McMillen Park last week, causing a power surge that damaged the heating and air conditioning systems and some parts of the boiler system. The squirrel didn’t survive. [Continue Reading]

Because no one was hurt we can say – what a way to go out for this squirrel. Think about it – if you’re a squirrel you live a relatively pointless existence collecting nuts and avoiding traffic. What’s worse if most people can’t recognize you from the next guy – why not go down in a blaze of glory?

Alcohol-Free Bars at the New Bars in the U.K.

Published by under Oddly Enough

All the nightlife, hold the hangover. That’s the pitch behind a growing number of alcohol-free bars springing up in the U.K. Skyy News reports that the increasing popularity of the establishments, often funded by anti-alcoholism charities, could signal a change in attitude amongst English youth.

The number of people, aged 25-44, who said they had had a drink in the previous week dropped from 74% to 63% for men and from 62% to 50% for women, between 2005 and 2012.

Well, I didn’t see this one coming – especially not from the U.K., but what do we know. As someone who has survived their hardcore drinking days I’m all for the no hangover.

Cheetos Perfume Will Ruin Everything You Love About Cheetos

Brands everywhere are finding stupid, hilarious new ways to freshen up their tired products and get outlets like The Huffington Post to write positive reviews about them. Cheetos is not one of those brands. Its new “Cheeteau” perfume — yes, perfume that’s supposed to smell like Cheetos — flies in the face of real brand innovation. Taco Bell had Doritos Locos Tacos and now breakfast. Pizza Hut had the perfume idea more than a year ago. Most of all, “it’s nauseating” is the best review “Cheeteau” received at our office. [Continue Reading]

Who thinks of this stuff? You know when your brilliant idea becomes a gag gift you’re an epic failure. Period. (I’m pretty sure this is a gag gift for the record – if it’s not – lord help us. The fact I’m not sure is a problem).

Reactions to Eating the World’s Hottest Pepper are Awesome

Published by under Oddly Enough

A

It used to be cool to embarrass yourself by eating a ghost pepper on camera and crying on YouTube. Now those videos are just shameful. The new hot sheriff in town is the Carolina Reaper, and it’s still kicking our asses two days after we tried it. Guinness World Records again dubbed Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reaper the hottest chile in the world at the NYC Hot Sauce Expo over the weekend. It measures well over 1.5 million on the Scoville Scale — for reference, Tobasco tops out at 1,200 Scoville units — and its heat causes numbing of the hands and a rush of endorphins. [Continue Reading]

As someone who has zero tolerance for spicy foods this scares the daylights out of me. This would seriously disrupt my life for at least a week. God bless those who tried it!

7 Unconventionally Awesome Ways to Deal with a Break Up

Published by under Oddly Enough

A man and a woman on a pier

Everyone knows there are classic ways to deal with those “please rip my heart out and let me die” breakup scenarios: a little pillow crying, a week-long stint in pajamas, or a night spent with Jose Cuervo. But there are also some not-so-classic things you can do to kick the breakup blues, too. Below, you’ll find seven totally unconventional things people have done to get over their exes in the past. (And no, we absolutely don’t recommend you try them all at home.)

[Click this link to see some awesome ways]

Listen, these ways are creative, but the best way to get over a break up is just go workout, play sports, go out with buddies or girlfriends, get hammered, have a good time, and bang someone else. It works I swear.

Zombie-Themed Beer has Actual Brains in It?

Published by under Oddly Enough

A2

It’s Friday. Happy hour beckons. You’d be forgiven for having booze on the brain. But at Dock Street Brewing Co. in Philadelphia, lately it’s less about the booze, and more about the brains. As in “BRAAAAAAAINS,” the surprising new ingredient for a zombie-themed beer. Brewed in honor of “The Walking Dead,” a post-apocalyptic zombie show on AMC, the beer, named “Walker,” uses smoked goat brains to add what the brewers say are “intriguing, subtle smoke notes.” Lest the drinker forget they’re imbibing brains, brewers also pitched cranberries to the brew, for a color they describe as “sinister” and “bloody.” [Continue Reading]

Here’s the thing about the brains beer – you know it sounds gross, you know it does. Admit you’d try it, admit that you’re interested in giving it a shot. I think it’s horrific, but I’m interested.

32 of the Craziest Competitions!

Published by under Oddly Enough

Forget March Madness, here are some truly insane competitions. People all over the world compete to see who has the best painted pregnant belly, who’s the best cherry pit spitter and who will be a champion cheese roller. Oh, and there’s something called a Rubber Woman Challenge too.

[Click this link to see all the crazy competitions]

I strongly suggest you take a minute out of your Friday to look at the collection of crazy competitions. It just amazes me that some people would actually do this crap. I mean how much can you win for diving into a pool of grits and trying to be the most covered in grits. Just doesn’t seem worth it does it?!
