Deep Fried Twinkies!

You don’t have to go to a county fair to experience DEEP FRIED TWINKIES anymore. Something THAT unhealthy needed to roam free.

Hostess just introduced a prepackaged version of Deep Fried Twinkies, and they’re on sale right now at Walmart. And Walmart has a one-year exclusive deal to sell them, because they KNOW their customers.

They’re pre-fried, and they’re in the frozen food section. So you need to heat them up in the oven or the microwave before you eat them.(Grubstreet

Dancing Gangnam Style Helps You Deal With Pain?

Dancing Gangnam Style Helps You Deal With Pain?

You’ve been doing group dances since you were a kid. You started with the “Hokey Pokey” and the “Chicken Dance” . . . graduated to the “Gangnam” . . . and now you kind of have the urge to learn the Whip / Nae Nae.

And without realizing it, each of those dances is making you better at dealing with PAIN.

A new study out of Oxford University in England found that people who do group dances have higher pain tolerances than people who don’t.

Their theory is that the dances are both good physical exercise AND good bonding experiences. That makes your body release endorphins . . . like it would when you’re playing a team sport.

And endorphins have a lasting effect of making you better at dealing with pain.

In other words, dances like the Macarena or Gangnam Style might help you take a punch to the FACE. Possibly for suggesting that everyone dance to them?

What Did “Back to the Future 2” Get Right and Wrong?

What Did “Back to the Future 2” Get Right and Wrong?

back-to-the-future-main
Today is October 21st, 2015. That’s the date in the “future” that Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel to in “Back to the Future 2”. So obviously, everybody wants to know if THAT future matches up to the real deal.

The things the movie got right include: Big screen TVs and video conferencing . . . News drones . . . Hands-free video games . . . and Video glasses.

Things we HAVEN’T seen yet include: Flying cars . . . Hoverboards . . . “Jaws 19” . . . and Shoes with self-tying laces. Although, this one MIGHT actually come true today. Nike kind of teased it yesterday.

As for the Cubs winning the World Series . . . That’s to be determined. But the fact that they predicted it nearly 30 years ago and it’s a real possibility is a little eerie. Even if it is a very remote possibility. As it stands now, the Mets only need one more win to shut the Cubs out of the running.

(In an unrelated and deviant note: There’s also a “Back to the Future” porn parody in the works. It’s being filmed now for a November “release”. Here’s a non-pornographic trailer. Warning: It contains some mild sexual imagery.)

Most stores have released their Black Friday ads, and the website Wallethub.com ran the numbers on them in a way that’s pretty helpful if you’re shopping this week.

They analyzed the ads from 22 major stores and websites, including 5,525 deals total . . . and found the average discount this Black Friday is 39.45%.

That means if you see something on sale for LESS than 40% off, it’s not that great of a deal. And if you see something for over 40% off on Black Friday, you’re in a better zone.

They also found JCPenney has the biggest average discount, at 65%. The other stores with the biggest Black Friday discounts are Macy’s . . . Rite Aid . . . Meijer . . . and Sears.

Costco is offering the worst average discount, at 21%. The other stores with the worst average Black Friday discounts are Big Lots . . . Amazon . . . Best Buy . . . and Walmart.
