The fast-food industry in America has taken its lumps, and quite a number of them are deserved. Then there’s this photo, which purports to show “mechanically separated chicken,” a pink slime that is used to make all the nuggets and patties for restaurants, and even that it contains everything from a chicken: bones, organs, and more.
Sounds offputting, if not a good weapon in favor of vegetarianism. Good thing it’s all a figment of the poster’s imagination. Turns out it is actually tubby custard from the kids’ show “Teletubbies,” which is neither supposed to be chicken nor was actually eaten.
Hanging With Harry
Running into celebrities can be crazy. Those people you see on the screen and read about in magazines usually feel like they live on a different plane of existence than us common folk. This is why it's so exciting to see them in person and have a real interaction.
It looks like this guy's run-in with Harry Styles at the Tigers game also made him $100 richer. Very cool story, bro. But as it goes with mega-pop stars, they're definitely used to some outlandish stories of fans knowing them. Luckily Harry decided to let everyone know that this story was pure imagination.
False Banana Alarm
Spotting this secret banana message does look troubling at first glance. No one wants to see someone stuck in supposed slavery in Bali! An actual cry for actual help! How often do you see those things so explicitly in your day-to-day life? Not that often, which should have been your first sign that there is fakery involved.
Thankfully for those who missed the first clue, there is that comment at the bottom to help everyone calm down. While this looks troubling at first glance, this cry for help turned out to actually be a hoax, at least according to this avid Redditor. We can all feel relieved now.
This fella wanted to send a kind message to the world, one that reminds all of us of what the Christmas spirit is really all about. What is it about? It's about giving, and with such a generous tip, he sure does give a lot.
The only problem is that this tip may have been a ruse and the copy of the check for the server may have a very different number written on it. We guess we will never know, but one thing is clear. We're calling nonsense on this Christmas post! Guess the only real place left to learn about the true meaning of Christmas is the Hallmark Channel.
Emergency Facebook Status
It can be a frightening experience when faced with danger. The best thing we can do is remain safe and get help. That should just go without saying. Sounds like a basic human instinct. But sometimes you just have to let your Facebook friends know what's up. Maybe that's a new human instinct, we don't know anymore.
Like in this case — we have this person who thought it was more important to update their Facebook status AND continue with the back-and-forth chatting in the comments instead of just calling the police. Are they bluffing or just addicted to social media?
