Psychology Today recently released a study on the most common places where Craigslist Missed Connections occur. While some may not be surprising (subways in the state of New York, bars in Winconsin and North Dakota), others are a little worrisome.
According to their map, Wal-Mart appears to be a popular place for believers in love to spot their dream guy or gal in about 14 states. Is it the drastically reduced good that make people fall in love at first site or is it the Wal-Mart greeters they’re really eyeing?
With this in mind, we start wondering what would be the worst places to meet our futures soulmates.
1. The Strip Club
Because how do you explain this chance encounter with your folks?
2. In Jail
Wouldn’t be the greatest place to try and find your “Happily Ever After.”
3. Funeral Home Read more…
I hope these guys saved up their money because they’re definitely going to get fired soon. The Wal-Mart employees from Pikeville, KY filmed themselves throwing iPads like they’re footballs and laughing about the whole thing. The video starts with one guy looking into the camera and explaining: “This is why you don’t get an iPad from Wal-Mart.” He goes on to say “throwing sh*t” is a regular daily ritual in the back room.
I’m not sure if the video is real, but if it is, it’s a horrible example of how Wal-Mart treats expensive products. It also shows that these guys don’t have an ounce of respect for customers or pride in their jobs. With this video on YouTube for the world to see, I don’t know if these guys could find jobs at McDonalds after this — I certainly wouldn’t want them making my burger. [Reddit]
The time has come! Pitbull is finally in the remote city of Kodiak Alaska, after being exiled by an Internet campaign. As much as we like to give the guy a hard time, you have to admit Pitbull was a good sport about it. He went to Kodiak, received a key to the city from Mayor Pat Branson and tweeted a photo of him holding a child alongside Alutiiq dancers. The tweet said: ”Thank U Kodiak … I am honoured, truly.” Best of all, he looked incredibly awkward watching Alutiiq Dancers performing a traditional routine.
At least we’re assured he’s safe from the bears that ravage the land, considering he received a care package yesterday from Wal-Mart that included bear repellant spray and bear bells used by hikers to make noise.
If you don’t know the back story, Armando Christian Perez (Pitbull) agreed to visit the Wal-Mart that got the most likes on its Facebook page. Writer/troller extraordinaire David Thorpe thought it would be HILARZ if Pitbull was forced to go to a remote location (because it is hilarious), so everyone followed suit.
But even Thorpe was impressed as he tweeted: ”Just met Pitbull. He shook my hand and said ‘Keep bulls***ting. Next thing you know we’ll be on the moon.” Okay, that’s a good line. Pitbull deserves some credit, am I right?

Everything is better with hot sauce..
At least according to Mike Tyson. Last week, on the show “Watch What Happens: Live,” Tyson was finally asked the question: What does a human ear taste like? This, after his infamous boxing fight in 1997 against Evander Holyfield, when Tyson bit both of his ears. First Tyson replies with “It depends which ear you bite.”
Then he follows saying if the ear would’ve had Holyfield’s Real Deal BBQ sauce on it “that would have been a delicacy.”
You have to love Mike Tyson. This guy just talks so casually about biting human ears like it’s as common as drinking water. You can find Holyfield’s barbecue sauce online if your interested in trying some, just add it to your favourite meat, hopefully one that isn’t human. [Source]
Chicken heart attack
I wish I could say I made this one up, but I’m just not that creative. This story is actually better than a movie script and it’s all true. Joy McDonald is facing up to a $1000 fine and possible jail time following an incident East of Kansas City, which resulted in the death of a chicken. McDonald’s two Chihuahuas Peaches and Domino got loose on April 5 and ran into the neighbours’ yard. They eventually found their way into the chicken coop and allegedly barked and chased down a chicken, causing it to suffer a heart attack and die. Basically, these dogs literally scared the poor bird to death. The chicken is a beloved pet of George and Nittaya Gamblin, who don’t want to see McDonald go to jail, but want her to realize she needs to keep an eye on her dogs. This isn’t the first run-in they’ve have had with the chickens. Can you imagine the conversation in the jail cafeteria?
So what are you in for? I murdered my husband, I robbed a bank… my dogs scared my neighbours’ chicken to DEATH. [Source]
Men who dress like goats
Haven’t you always wanted to dress up like an animal and go hang out with them? Ya, me neither, but someone is doing just that in the mountains of Northern Utah. An unknown person has been seen dressed as a goat, hanging out with a herd of REAL goats in the wild. A man hiking saw the goat impersonator hanging out and couldn’t believe what he was seeing, so he took a few photos to show Phil Douglass who works in Wildlife Resources in Utah. Douglass is worried for the man’s
sanity safety as goat hunting season starts in September. Won’t the guy hunting be upset when he goes to get his goat and realizes it’s a human in a goat suit? Ribs for dinner anyone? [Source]

It’s arguable whether his fans or haters are sending him there, but Pitbull is being exiled to a REMOTE bear-infested Island of Alaska, called Kodiak, for a personal appearance.
Wal-Mart started an online contest on its Facebook page a while ago: whichever store got the most likes would be
subjected to graced with a visit from Armando Christian Perez (that’s Pitbull).
Meanwhile, a writer for The Boston Phoenix named David Thorpe thought it would be HILARZ to send Pitbull to the most remote Wal-Mart possible. ENTER KODIAK. Through Facebook, Twitter (#exilePitbull) and various media outlets Thorpe encouraged people to “like” the Wal-Mart in Kodiak, earning it 70,000 “likes,” even though the population of the Island is just over 13,000.
To Pitbull’s credit, he kept a good sense of humor over the whole incident and tweeted:
Pitbull even uploaded a YouTube video from his tour leg in Madrid, addressing the prankster. ”You gotta understand that I would go anywhere in the world for my fans,” he said. In the end the joke is on Thorpe because Pitbull invited him along for the appearance in Kodiak… and that’s a LONG flight.
Miley Cyrus has landed herself a deal with Wal-Mart for a clothing line produced with designer Max Azria (Hervé Léger, BCBG and Max Azria).
The “Miley Cyrus & Max Azria” label is set to include everything from pants to tops to graphic tees, shoes and accessories — all under $20 — according to E! Online.
Wal-Mart is also sponsoring Cyrus’ Live in Concert tour that kicks off in Portland Sept. 14, finishing in Miami after 45 stops.
“Transformers” star Megan Fox may be able to get into a lot of exclusive clubs now, but there’s one place she’s definitely not welcome: Wal-Mart.
The 21-year-old is banned from a Florida branch in her hometown, after she was caught shoplifting a $7 tube of lip gloss during her rebellious teenage years.
A source close to the starlet told the National Enquirer that Fox “was quite a rebel growing up. She thought she could get away with anything, and definitely had sticky fingers.”
Fox denied taking the lip gloss even after security told her she was caught on video, and tried to talk her way out of it. “But when they threatened to call the police, Megan broke down in tears and confessed,” claims the friend.
Fox’s spokesperson refused to comment.
