The folks at Triangle Tree are hoping to save you from some alone time with your dirty dishes with their edible spoons.
With their edible spoons, the company hopes to essentially lessen the use and impact of plastic spoons that don’t get disposed of properly and which can leave lasting negative impacts on the environment.
I don’t know, I’m all for helping the environment but when it comes down to it, I wonder if these spoons taste good. Would they alter the taste of my meals? And what if I need a fork and knife? Couldn’t I just pack a regular spoon in my lunch box? It’s not like plastic spoons are mandatory to use just because you’re eating outside of home.
They also look like dog treats but that’s just me.
For those who simply don’t have enough time in the morning to fully dedicate a minute or two to hygiene, this is for you.
The tongue to teeth toothbrush is exactly what it sounds like: a pre-coated toothpaste brush you put on your tongue for a hands-free teeth cleaning experience.
It’s creator, Adel Elseri, told the Edmonton Journal he came up with the idea as he was driving home from a 12-hour shift. Elseri and his business partner Said Fayad presented the idea to the producers of the entrepreneurial show Dragon’s Den (or Shark Tank, if you’re American and watch the poor remake) last month. There is no news as of yet if they made it onto the show.
If anything, this product brings us just one step closer to being cats. Meow.
Yes, you read that correctly. A two-year-old Chicago boy was rushed to the hospital after coughing up a piece of rubber which it turned out was part of a used condom. Apparently, the little boy consumed the condom while playing in a McDonald’s play area with his brother.
The boys’ mother, Anishi Spencer, is now suing the fast-food chain for $50,000 dollars worth of damages. She says the restaurant failed to properly clean hazardous debris from an area used by kids, and they did not use surveillance to uncover any “deviant activites” on its grounds. The money from the lawsuit will be used to pay her son’s medical bills.
This is absolutely DISGUSTING, and a new low for McDonald’s. Hopefully they are able to get to the bottom of this and figure out who took the meaning of “play area” to a very adult level.
Apparently outer space is prime real-estate.
Sixty-five year old Dennis M. Hope has established quite a business by selling land in outer space on planets including Mars, Venus, and the Moon.
Yes. Thats right. You can buy land on the Moon. You can actually buy a piece of the Moon. I’m not sure how Hope has the rights to it because he probably doesn’t, but its quite the concept. Some may call him a con artist, but some may call him a genius opportunist.
I’m not too sure which he is. I am too preoccupied with the thought of humans one day living on the Moon. Really, how cool would that be?
Imagine a transit system that could connect all planets so you can travel back and forth. What could it be called? The upway? I don’t even know. All I know, is that I wish I thought of investing in real-estate out of our planet first.
Do you think property on space is the next big thing? Would you invest?

What better way to represent American pride and values to than through R. Kelly’s timeless and beloved classic, Ignition (Remix)??
The song turned 10 years old on Jan. 22, and someone in the land of the free thought the best way to celebrate was to create a petition suggesting it become the new national anthem. They even found a way to pay tribute to the inspirational lyrics in the actual text of the document. As they so eloquently put it:
The petition currently has 2,000 signatures, and if it reaches 100,000, the Obama administration is technically obligated to respond. While they do have a tendency to ignore such requests, they did once respond to a petition requesting a government-commissioned Death Star (they said no, citing “fiscal impracticality” – only in America).
This has all the makings of an AMAZING reality show. I’m picturing a national competition in which YouTubers everywhere (including Young the Giant and Joseph Gordon-Levitt) vie for the chance to be the official singer of the anthem,
Okay, I’m getting ahead of myself. I love me some R. Kelly, but I don’t think Beyonce belting out “It’s the freakin’ weekend baby I’m about to have me some fun,” would have quite the same affect at the next inauguration.
If you were born in the nineties and you owned a television growing up, I can guarantee that you can sing at least 85 per cent of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song. Should you ask your parents to sing it, I’m 85 per cent sure they wouldn’t have a clue what you were talking about. And that’s what got 19-year-old Travis Clawson in trouble.
The boy triggered a lockdown at his Pennsylvania school after a receptionist trying to confirm an appointment thought his voicemail said “shooting people outside of the school” when the recording played the song (the actual line is “shooting some b-ball”).
The receptionist then called 911 and Clawson was arrested, but was released once the message was explained. This is a lesson to all parents/adults: maybe you should pay closer attention to the so-called garbage us young folk watch, if only to prevent embarrassing misunderstandings such as this one.
According to Kansas’ KMBC News, Wichita, Kansas police were perplexed when three bags of Marijuana in their storage facility were torn open with some of the evidence gone missing.
The police department first thought that someone had tampered with the evidence. But after a quick investigation, they came to the conclusion that the police facility was also home to a couple of stoner mice.
The mice had chewed through the bags, nested in them and then ate some of the weed. The incident is not totally uncommon because of weed’s strong scent.
The kicker in this story had to be that the police felt compelled to create suspect renderings to alert the public of these wanted fugitives.
The whole ordeal sounds like the next Seth Rogan stoner comedy, which (in my mind) should be a mix between Disney’s Ratatouille, Pineapple Express, and for added creepiness and drama, The Brave Little Toaster. You can send the cheque to me, Rogan, when Judd Apatow decides to pick up the project.
Bubble blowing has advanced in recent years, and while to you a pink Hello Kitty Bubble Gun might seem like a fun and harmless toy, to the administration at Mount Carmel Area Elementary School in Pennsylvania, it’s a weapon. So when one little girl who owned the toy pointed it at another student and said she was “going to kill her,” their logical solution was to suspend her from school for 10 days for “making a terrorist threat.”
Thankfully someone realized that the kindergartener was probably not trying to make a terrorist threat, and shortened her suspension to two days. She does, however, have to complete a psychiatric evaluation before returning to class. All of this leaves me with one question: What ever happened to time out?
Apparently, crazy administration is a theme this week as this story comes on the heels of news that a Montreal student was expelled for “unprofessional conduct” after finding a bug in his college’s computer system. Shouldn’t they have said thank you?
Condom Testers wanted
Well this is a nice way to recruit prostitutes… An add in the Chinese version of Craigslist, was looking for women to test out condoms. How would they test out the condoms? Exactly how you think, having sex to figure out their effectiveness. All the while, getting paid to do so. Naturally, after a few days, the add was pulled because this is clearly not okay. Although, the heading for the add is pretty awesome. Go what it takes to be an official condom tester? LOL
Two pelicans get private flight home
Hurricane Sandy destroyed a lot of homes and the coastal cities, but it also disrupted the flights of a couple pelican’s just trying to fly around their respective habitats in Florida and North Carolina. Believed to be dead, the pelicans got caught up in the storm and showed up in New Jersey. Once they were located, they were flown back to Florida to get back to their normal lives. I wish I could get a free flight home from the government, not fair.
Sleeping your life away
We’ve all wanted to sleep for days at one time or another, but after reading about this girl, I take it back. Nicole Delian, 17, has a rare disorder called Kleine-Levin Syndrome which means she needs about 18 hours of sleep per day. She has slept sometimes up to 64 days straight! Even missing Christmas! Remember this next time you think you want to sleep for days.
Talk about having beef
Apparently, some of the neighbours cows came over and started eating all of Justin DeLoach’s horse feed. That was enough to make DeLoach, 23, so angry that he shot six cows in the face. Like the cows knew they were trespassing… He was charged with second degree felony of killing or aggravative abuse of horse or cattle. Someone’s got beef.
Belly button ring rescue
This is my nightmare. A woman was swimming at a public pool when her belly button ring got caught on a pool drain. The fire department was called in to rescue her. Luckily the drain was in swallow water, but the pool had to be drained in order to get the ring out of the drain. That’s pretty embarrassing, at least it wasn’t a tongue ring…
Admit it, we’ve all been there — looking for the perfect parking spot, then BAM! someone else takes it. That seems to be what caused a violent brawl between two priests in Australia. Father Thomas Henry Byrne, 80, started the fight where he actually ended up biting off the other priest’s ear. Father Thomas Joseph Cameron Smith, 81, drove to the hospital where he was taken into surgery to repair his ear. Did these priests not read the 10 commandments? Aren’t they supposed to be kind towards others? I never thought I’d ever write about 80-year-old priests fighting. What is happening in this world!
The coolest sport ever
I thought I loved Dodgeball, but this is actually the best thing I’ve ever seen! Rick Platt created Ultimate Trampoline Dodgeball. The floors and walls are covered in trampolines so you can literally ‘Matrix,” your way out of potential hits from the enemy team. The first ever tournament was held this week in Los Angeles, and I’m kind of upset I wasn’t in it. Watch the video below, it speaks for itself.
Man mistakes dead man for a mannequin
A mail carrier in Denver, was delivering mail when we noticed what he thought was a mannequin on a front porch. He just played it off as nothing, left the mail, and continued on his route. Later, it was found that it was actually the body of a dead man. The mail carrier thought, being so close to halloween, that it was just a decoration. I don’t know about you, but, I’m pretty sure I would be able to tell the difference between a human and a mannequin. Unless it was Quentin Tarantino’s house I guess….

Cellphone for a rat
I’m willing to do some pretty questionable things to get myself a new cellphone, but this is too much. In Johannesburg, South Africa they have a pretty serious rat problem. One charity in the area called Lifeline, has recently tried to help stop the spread of rats by offering cellphones to anyone who brings them at least 60 rats. Just stop and think of how many rats that really is. You have to, I guess, kill them? or maybe just trap that many rats. Then you throw them in your car and bring them to the charity? This sounds like my nightmare. Imagine driving with a giant box of rats riding shotgun…
Woman looses tooth brush in her throat…
This 19-year-old girl was brushing her teeth one day, like normal, when she accidentally swallowed her tooth brush? Seriously? Okay, she had no gag reflex so maybe it’s possible. She said she felt it slipping down her throat, but there was nothing much she could do about it. I’m sorry, umm, if I feel something slipping down my throat I would definitely catch it. How hard are you brushing those pearly whites? Do we really need to add another warning label?
Pregnant zombie arrested for DUI
Police were called to tend to a shooting victim at a busy intersection. Only thing is, when they got there they realized the woman wasn’t the victim of a shooting, but rather wearing a halloween costume. She was dressed up as a pregnant zombie. When police first arrived they admitted they would’ve thought the same thing. Instead of being shot, the woman was intoxicated. Imagine if she was slurring her words too? She would’ve literally sounded like a zombie, terrifying.

Star Trek fans get married in true Klingon style. Re-enacted from an episode from ‘Deep Space Nine,’Jossie Sockertopp and Sonnie Gustavsson tied the knot at “Destination Star Trek,” in London this weekend. I won’t go into detail, I’ll let the video speak for itself. How do I say ‘best wishes’ in Klingon? ..
9-year-old girl shot after she’s mistaken for a skunk
A 9-year-old girl was shot after being mistaken for a skunk at her family halloween party, in Pennsylvania. Her relative saw her outside and grabbed his shotgun, shooting her in the back, shoulder, arm and neck. The shooter hadn’t been drinking, but if I were them, I would’ve lied. This is pretty brutal to mistake a girl for a real skunk. How big are skunks in Pennsylvania? jeeeeez.
Man with Samurai sword breaks up fight in Phoenix
There are so many questions I have for this story. This man witnesses a fight on a light rail train in Phoenix, and just busts out his Samurai NBG! He saves one guy from being beaten to death, and the two guys walk off the train.
First Question, Why do you have a samurai sword on your person on a train?
Second, if it is for a sword training class, what are you training for? Random events such as this? I could go on… I won’t.
I hope that guy thanked him.
M*ther F*cking Snakes on a M*ther F*cking SUV?
A man who was in Englewood for a reptile convention, had his Suburban stolen from a Walmart parking lot. Only thing is, there was a couple turtles, snakes, including a 13-foot long python, tarantula’s and scorpions inside the SUV. Robbery fail at it’s finest perhaps?
53 People sick at Berlin airport due to sh*tty situation
53 people fell ill at a Berlin airport after going into the airport washrooms. I wish it was a really nasty story, like there was an overflow of poop, but no. It looks like washroom cleaners used WAY to much ammonia to clean. People were going in, and breathing in the ammonia, getting sick and sore eyes. Hey, at least you know your toilet was clean.
Jack Sparrow… errrr woman thinking she’s Jack Sparrow, steals ferry
A British woman named Alison Whelan was drunk and decided she would steal a ferry. She got on a double-decker boat and crashed into a few other boats before getting out into the open water. The entire time she was doing this, she yelled: “I’m Jack Sparrow, I’m a pirate.” Needless to say, she was put in jail for steeling the ferry. I guess it coul be worse though, she could’ve thought she was the Joker.. and like robbed a bank or something.. [sailswithoutcolors-rpg]
Woman washes herself, after urinating on a NYC subway
And we’re like:
Video surfaced Sept. 20 of a women on a NYC subway car urinating. She wastes no time after the incident, to pull a jug of water and what appears to be a pink cloth from her bag, and washes herself. Oh, have I mentioned she is still doing this all on the subway! The video was been pulled from YouTube, but it was easy to see it truly happened. Do we really need to have those signs posted on subway cars? Please no urinating or bathing in the subway car. Do these rituals in the privacy of your own home. [photobucket]
Psychopaths don’t stop to smell the flowers
A new study was released that links people with psychopathic tendencies, having a bad sense of smell. The study consisted of 79 adults who had no prior psychopathic history. They measured their senses of smell as well as possible traits such as manipulation and erratic lifestlyes. The conlusion was that those people with psychopathic tendencies, have disfunctinal brain activity in a certain part of the brain. It turns out, this part of the brain is also the part responsible for your sense of smell. So next time you are going out shopping at the mall with a friend who maaaaayyyybeee is a little strange. Just stop at a candle store and test it out. If she/he can’t smell the candles well, or disifer different smells, I think it would be safe to say RUN! [dank-drix]

Bears Go HAM
A family of bears broke into a cabin near Jarfjord, Norway, and basically went HAM on it. Not only is the cabin completely destroyed, all the food was eaten as well. You may be asking yourself why some random bears would destroy a cabin? Inside there were 100 beers, all of which were consumed by those fuzzy animals. So, just think of it as a college-like experience, but instead of rowdy frat boys it’s your average family of bears drinking all night and destroying perfectly good homes. That shit cray. [Source]
If the Paranormal Activity movies aren’t enough to keep you from sleeping, this story definitely will. A woman in China had surgery last Wednesday to remove a little hairy friend, living somewhere it shouldn’t. Doctors removed a HUGE HAIRY SPIDER from inside this women’s ear canal!!!! She went to see her doctor after having an itchy ear for a few days. Turns out it was itchy due to her little friend, who they speculate must have burrowed inside her ear while she was sleeping. This legitimately is one of my childhood fears, and still is. So below, I created a list of ways to stop your worst fear from happening.
1. Always sleep with the covers over your ears. This is what I do, and so far, no spiders are living in my ears.
2. When your creepy-spidey-sense starts tingling, go to bed with your headphones on, or at least in your ears.
3. Ear plugs. A simple and cheap solution.
4. Worst case, if you cannot do anything mentioned above, put some band-aids over those ears. You will stay safe throughout the night from any ear invasions. You’re Welcome. [Source]
We have all had that freak out moment, when we need our clothes to be dry NOW, but they aren’t cause we forgot to turn on the dryer/lost track of time/had a lazy brother who wouldn’t take his clothes out. Well maybe the last reason is just me, but either way, DO NOT ATTEMPT to dry your wet clothes in a microwave. Someone near Weymouth, England decided this was a reasonable idea and almost burned his house down. Firefighters responded to the call and found a few appliances destroyed by the fire. His two pairs of underwear and socks, didn’t survive. [Source]
Don’t Read and Drive Read more…
Every week ANDPOP columnist Kelly Burns narrows down the most bizarre stories of the week. They’re not exactly newsworthy but just weird enough to grab our attention. This week, China’s dealing with a stolen penis and someone wants to — wait for it — see Nickelback.
Who wants to see Nickelback?
I don’t know what’s more embarrassing, the fact this guy fell 40-feet into a gorge or the fact that the reason he fell was because he was trying to sneak into a Nickelback concert. Kevin Beaudette apparently really wanted to see Nickelback last Tuesday, when they played at New York’s Saratoga Performing Arts Center. Falling 40-feet into the Geyser Brook Gorge, and only having a few cuts and scrapes is impressive. But the emotional scars that are going to follow him now, couldn’t be any bigger. He will forever be known as “that guy” who tried to see NICKELBACK. Automatic douche-bag status. Keep rockin’ that spiked hair, studded belt and awesome music… not.
Kim Kardashian can smell cavities
A couple years ago Kim Kardashian went on Jimmy Kimmel and took a quick whiff of his breath to see if he had any cavities. ”I have a weird sixth sense — I can smell whenever someone has a cavity. If someone has a conversation with me, I can smell it,” she insisted. Last night on Keeping Up With the Kardashians (What? I don’t watch that) Kim was positive Khloe’s hubby
the Candy Man Lamar needed a few fillings. And it turns out she was completely right. But if she has such a good sense of smell, what’s up with that fragrance of hers? Ouch! Just joking people, it was an easy shot.

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]
