This 6-year-old’s Spelling Test Is Funny, But the Excuse He Gave His Teacher Is Even Better

Nov 13, 2014 By Abraham 0

Grayson was recently sent home with his latest spelling test. For the test, he was required to use each word in a sentence. Without being instructed, Grayson used this as an opportunity to write a 6-sentence story that is commendable for both its continuity and its profound grasp of scatological humor.

Even better than his sentences, though, is the excuse he gave his teacher for his choice of topics.

To explain his son’s awesome Vitamin D remark, Grayson’s dad says

Honestly I have no idea. The kid spends his chore money on things like visual encyclopedias of human anatomy and chooses science documentaries over cartoons. The things he comes up with are constantly surprising me.

Formerly Obese Man Faces His Biggest Insecurity by Showing It to Everyone

Nov 13, 2014 By Joey White 15

John David Glaude weighed 360 pounds before spending months of steady diet and exercise to drop to 200 pounds…

Obese to Beast

While almost everything about Glaude’s weight loss has been awesome, the 21-year-old is left with a very awkward problem — all the loose skin that used to contain fat he no longer has.

In an effort to deal with his insecurity and help others feel more confident in their own skin (literally), he made this fantastic video…

College Kids Give Stunningly Bad Answers to Questions Like, “Who Won the Civil War?”

Nov 13, 2014 By Joey White 8

There’s no better way for a new student organization to make a splash on campus than to make a video that shows their own student body’s incompetence, and then watch it go viral for the whole world to see.

That’s what a new non-partisan political organization called PoliTech did on the campus of Texas Tech University, asking fellow students to answer simple questions about U.S. history, current affairs, and — of course — pop culture.

You can probably guess how well most students did in each category…

Of course, the video has created enormous controversy on campus at Texas Tech. People like political science professor Mark McKenzie say it represents a typical student. Others, especially students, are outraged at the potential impact the video could have on Texas Tech’s reputation.

This Fully-insured Heart Attack Survivor Owes $50,000 for a Mistake She Didn’t Make

Nov 13, 2014 By Megan Berman 1

Megan Rothbauer should be able to consider herself lucky — one year ago at age 29, she had a heart attack that left her in a coma and almost took her life.

And she does feel lucky she’s alive, but unfortunately there’s a downside no one would have predicted. Despite being fully insured, she’s now $50,000 in medical debt and instead of being able to simply celebrate that she’s alive, she’s worried about bankruptcy and having to put off her impending engagement. 

Via: Channel 3000

When Megan had her heart attack, she was left unconscious and taken by an ambulance to St. Mary’s Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin. Unfortunately for her, St. Mary’s is out of her insurance network. What’s worse is that Meriter Hospital, an in-network hospital with a maximum co-pay of only $1500, is three blocks away from St. Mary’s.

Bryan Cranston Reads Hilarious R-rated “Kids” Book (If Your Kid’s a Picky Eater, You’ll Relate)

Nov 13, 2014 By Joey White 0

If you had a baby or toddler two years ago, you probably saw the book Go the F*** to Sleep, accompanied a little while later by  Samuel L. Jackson’s fantastic reading of it, which he did because when he read it, he “fell out laughing.”

Now, author Adam Mansbach is back with another “kids” book that you can never — never — read to your kids. This one is called You Have to F***ing Eat, and this time around he enlisted Bryan Cranston to read the hilarious bedtime story…

(Yes, it is explicit and wonderfully inappropriate. Please don’t click play if this is going to offend you.)

Nov 13, 2014 By Abraham 1

Last weekend pastor and musician Chris Picco’s life fell apart — shockingly, and unspeakably fell apart.

Chris Picco - 02

On November 8th, his wife Ashley unexpectedly passed away in her sleep. She was pregnant. Doctors rescued the baby with an emergency C-section, but at 24 weeks and with such a traumatic birth, he struggled. On November 11th, he passed away, too.

This is almost too much to even write or read a simple paragraph about…and Chris is living it.

Here he is singing his baby to sleep…

Nov 12, 2014 By Abraham 0

Try to watch this mess of a race and not get irrationally frustrated. It’s almost impossible. It starts out with a boat running into a dock and only gets worse from there.

And all the while, a running commentary from the increasingly agitated moms and dads watching…

If you’re curious what’s going on here (because it’s too ridiculous to make sense of) here’s a helpful analysis.
