Tebowing gone very wrong
Seventeen-year-old Josh Ehrenberg was mowing the lawn at home in Pennsylvania, just minding his business like any other day. Out of nowhere a bald man wearing glasses drove up in his Chrysler, got out of the car and knocked Ehrenberg off his lawnmower by “close-lining” him. As if that wasn’t weird enough, the guy “Tebowed” after Ehrenberg fell off. For those who don’t know, “Tebowing” is the act of praying just like Tim Tebow, a quarterback for the New York Jets. He always prays before or after he gets off the field. So naturally, you would stop and pray after pushing someone off a lawnmower? Weirdo.
Canadians love Maple Syrup
Millions of dollars worth of maple syrup was stolen from a St. Louis-De-Blandford facility in Quebec leading a lot of people to say “Canada, you had one job and you MESSED IT UP!” The facility holds 10 million pounds of maple syrup for distribution mainly when there are bad years and not enough can be harvested. All I can say is if I don’t have maple syrup on my pancakes this year, because of whoever stole it, I am going to cry! We Canadians love our Maple Syrup!
Women joins search party that is looking for her
A tour group near Eldgja Canyon, Iceland thought they lost a tourist after she got off the bus to freshen up. The woman discreetly returned and joined the search party without realizing they were looking for her the whole time. About 50 people searched for a few hours until they eventually figured it out. That would’ve been pretty embarrassing, how the hell did those people not recognize it was her though? When she changed clothes did she change into a full cat-women costume with a mask or something? I don’t understand.

Eminem’s publishing company is suing Audi for the unauthorized use of his song ‘Lose Yourself’ in an ad, reports Billboard.
Eight Mile Style LLC, which is the publishing company for Eminem’s copyrights, is seeking a ‘cease-and-desist’ order against Audi. The company claims the new Audi commercials, for the 2012 Audi A6 Avant, are using the rapper’s song without permission.
Joel Martin, a spokesman for Eight Mile Style, also believes Audi is using the track to copy a Chrysler advertisement featuring the same song.
“We believe Audi not only used ‘Lose Yourself’ to sell their product without permission, but their spot actually feels inspired by elements of Chrysler’s commercial campaign.”
Gualberto Ranieri, a Chrysler Group spokesman, says “Apparently someone believes that the definition of copyright laws is the right to copy others’ materials, including world-renowned successes created by Chrysler Group brands.”
It looks like Audi is in some deep trouble. Sure, you can use a song to make your car look cool, but you end up looking really stupid if you didn’t gain permission to use it. I have a feeling Eminem’s people will win this case.
