A Woman Makes Herself a Wedding Dress Out of Taco Bell Wrappers

In case you haven’t heard, a new Taco Bell in Las Vegas has a WEDDING CHAPEL inside, and they’re running a contest where some couple will win a free dream wedding there. At Taco Bell. Who could POSSIBLY have that dream, right?

Um . . . this woman. A woman named Diane Nguyen wanted her entry in the contest to stand out, so she got a bunch of unused taco and burrito wrappers from a Taco Bell . . . and made herself a WEDDING DRESS out of them.

She says she wanted to get married at Taco Bell because, quote, “It has been there through the years, from the after school runs, to late meals after work or a night of partying.”

A Hospital Charged a Couple $40 to Hold Their Baby After He Was Born

A Hospital Charged a Couple $40 to Hold Their Baby After He Was Born

It’s really amazing how much of an out-of-control beast our healthcare system has become after decades and decades of running totally unchecked.

A couple in Utah had a baby a few weeks ago, and the guy just posted a copy of their hospital bill on Reddit . . . that showed a $39.35 charge for, quote, “skin to skin after C-sec.”

In other words, they were charged 40 bucks to hold their son after he was born.

How can the hospital possibly think that’s a reasonable charge?

A labor and delivery nurse posted a response to explain it: When a baby is born with a c-section in the operating room and the parents hold them right away, an extra nurse has to stay and monitor the baby to make sure they’re okay.

And while that may be true, the consensus online is that it’s still a ridiculous thing to see on a hospital bill.
