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.”
20-year-old Tara Monroe is a junior at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. She got a DUI in March and her license was suspended. But she needed a fast way to get around campus, and she says, quote, “riding a bike sucks.”
So . . . she bought a pink Barbie TOY JEEP off Craigslist. It runs on a 12-volt battery and maxes out at five miles per hour. It also looks ridiculous when an adult is driving it.
She’s been spotted in it all over the campus . . . which has led to TONS of people posting pictures of her on social media. She says, quote, “This is the best way I could’ve gotten my 15 minutes of fame.”
Toy Barbie Jeep to Class
Two cops in New York were chasing a guy on foot last week, and he ended up joining a half-marathon that was going on in Central Park.
We don’t know if he was TRYING to be clever, but it does sound like a good way to hide . . . you get to blend in AND keep running.
Unfortunately it didn’t work out for him . . . because 90 of the people running were ALSO cops
They were off-duty police officers from England, who’d flown in to raise money for a cancer charity. The best part is they were running in UNIFORMS . . . they all had those British police helmets on.
One of them is a 28-year-old named Alex Courts, who was about ten miles into the race when he saw the two cops chasing the guy.
He says he didn’t even have to break his stride. He just kept running . . . waited until the guy was right in front of him . . . and tackled him to the ground.
Then after the dude was in handcuffs, Alex finished the last three miles of the race.
