Oreo’s path to total junk food domination just took another big step forward. And I, for one, welcome our insane cookies-and-cream overlords.
Oreo just introduced their first CANDY BAR. It’s a gigantic milk chocolate bar that’s stuffed with layers of cream and Oreo cookies. And the chocolate is fancy, expensive European chocolate.
It’s starting to roll out to stores now and should be everywhere by January. And a smaller version will also be coming out then, in case you’re into moderation.
A guy named Derrick Deanda from Elk Grove, California was in his car last month when he saw a van swerve off the road and roll over. And he immediately stopped to help.
And it’s a good thing he did, because a guy and his three kids were trapped inside. Derrick broke a window and helped pull them out safely before the paramedics showed up.
And now, a few weeks later, Derrick got his reward . . . a $143 bill from the city.
It turns out that when Derrick broke the window on the van, he got a small cut on his hand. One of the paramedics took a quick look at it . . . so, BOOM, $143.
Derrick says he’s shocked they charged him for helping save the family. Quote, “I mean, why would I want to stop to help somebody if I’m going to get a bill?”

One of the great, pointless debates of modern life is the right way to hang a roll of toilet paper. Do you go with the “over” style, where the paper hangs to the front, or “under,” where the paper hangs to the back?
Well, believe it or not, a therapist ran a study on 2,000 people to see if the way you hang toilet paper is a window into your personality . . . and she actually DID find one connection.
People who put a toilet paper roll in the “over” style are more DOMINANT. People who hang the roll “under” style are more submissive.
She also found that the “over” people are SO dominant, sometimes they actually switch the paper at other people’s houses if it’s “under” style.
For what it’s worth, last year, someone actually dug up the original toilet paper roll patent from 1891 and found that in the drawings, the roll is in the “over” style.
(Here’s the patent drawing for toilet paper.)
There’s a new stupid internet trend you might have heard about . . . or will soon. It’s called the “thighbrow.”
It’s just a made-up name for the crease, fold, or roll of flesh that forms between a woman’s upper thigh and their hip when they bend forward, sit, or kneel. Yes, apparently that needed a name.
Think “Kardashian” or just women in bathing suits in general. Although we suppose it happens to guys too? It’s basically part of the whole booty trend, where bigger is better . . . since thicker hips and a big butt tend to create more thighbrow.
It’s more of a hashtag on Instagram than a trend, but whatever. You’ll see a ton of examples if you Google it. Just know that your screen will be filled with photos of scantily clad women.
Yes, we know . . . it makes no sense, because it’s not even really a ‘thing.’ But at least almost anyone can do it?
And if you see it pop up, now you know.
For at least a decade now, America’s state fairs have done a tremendous job making insane fried food innovations. And we’re about to find out what happens when their inventions go mainstream.
Taco Bell just started testing a new breakfast item . . . and it’s CRAZY: They’re donut holes filled with a sweet, milk-flavored cream icing . . . and covered in crushed-up CAP’N CRUNCH. Cap’n Crunch Berries, to be specific.
They’re called ‘Cap’n Crunch Delights,’ and they’re being tested in Bakersfield, California. Technically they’re an item on the breakfast menu . . . but they’re available all day long.
For now, Taco Bell is only testing them out in Bakersfield. There’s no word on if or when they could roll out to the rest of the country.
