Prince demands attention

this is Prince, right?

We have all heard the different rumors about Prince—he avoids eye contact, he never moves out of the way for people, and he has actually never listened to anybody ever. So this story should come as no surprise. Mark Foster, singer of Foster The People, was kicked out of a surprise Prince concert as he was seen using his phone during the show. Foster begged security guards to let him back in and was only re-admitted after showing he did not use his phone to photo or film Prince. If you don’t see how this story makes Prince awesome, then you’re never going to be an awesome person. Though it’d be even cooler if Prince kicked out Foster just because he was texting.

Of course, soccer moms are in a tizzy, but going to the Ashley Madison Zoo wouldn’t seem so bad if we just posthumously change Margaret Mead’s name to Ashley Madison.

Recently Beyonce posted a note to Michelle Obama on her website, thanking her for being strong, caring, and most importantly, black.

Not Everything’s Bigger in Texas

In the state where everything is known to be bigger, one Texas hospital will not hire anyone that is considered overweight. The Citizens Medical Center in Victoria won’t even accept your application unless your body mass index is less than 35. Any hospital employees who think this is unfair are forced to go for a walk with fat people and listen to them complain about their feet.

Secret Ingredient

Remember how everyone used to say there was cat meat in Chinese food? Well, there was, and dog meat… and newspaper. Another appetizing ingredient the Chinese use in cooking is boys’ pee. Each year around this time, food vendors in Dongyang start collecting buckets of urine—preferable from boys younger than 10-years-old—to boil eggs. This is considered a delicacy that presents many health benefits says every Catholic priest ever.
