“Mario Kart” Makes You a Better Driver (Confirmed)

“Mario Kart” Makes You a Better Driver (Confirmed)

A new study out of Hong Kong found that playing video games like “Mario Kart” actually make you a better driver in REAL life.

The researchers say it’s because they train your brain to make decisions that are quick, but also super precise. And those skills translate over once you’re in a real car.

Whatever. I WISH I could throw turtle shells and giant banana peels at other drivers. Then maybe they’d respect me.

KFC’s Latest Creation Is Fried Chicken Covered in Pizza

KFC’s Latest Creation Is Fried Chicken Covered in Pizza

1-EOM

 

This is one of those fast food creations in another country that HAS to make its way to America.

KFC in Hong Kong is now selling fried chicken covered in PIZZA. It’s a pizza-chicken hybrid called Napoli Crispy Pizza Chicken.

Basically, it’s a piece of fried chicken that has marinara sauce, mozzarella, and cheddar cheese melted on top of the breading.

And because it’s KFC, one of the ads shows the pizza chicken being offered with a side of mashed potatoes and gravy.

There’s no word if they’re thinking about bringing it to the U.S. But since Pizza Hut DID finally import that pizza with the little hot dogs in the crust, there’s always a chance.

10,000 Pigeons Undergo Anal Security Checks for China National Day

10,000 Pigeons Undergo Anal Security Checks for China National Day

Untitled-2
The 10,000 pigeons selected to participate in the National Day of the People’s Republic of China on Oct. 1 were inspected for suspicious objects by security officials this week. Thoroughly inspected.

According to a tweet by People’s Daily, China’s government-sponsored newspaper, each of the birds was anally examined, ensuring they weren’t carrying, you know, suspicious things or whatever.

The sheer number of birds examined is hard to believe — not to mention the fact that there are some more important things going on in China right now, like mass pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong.

The National Day is a public holiday marking the 65th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China. The Nanjing Daily reports that after the birds from Xicheng, Dongcheng, Chaoyang and Fengtai are loaded into a truck and transported to Tiananmen Square, they will be released there around sunrise for the ceremony as a sign of peace.

Peace for humans, horrific confusion for pigeons.
