If your friends aren’t responsible enough to tell you that you’re too drunk to drive, maybe your tortilla chips will be?
Tostitos is rolling out a new bag right now that has a built in BREATHALYZER. You breathe into the sensor on the bag, and if it detects any alcohol on your breath, the design on the bag turns red and flashes a message that says “Don’t drink and drive.”
The bags are only going to be around for a limited time, but you should definitely try to get one for your Super Bowl party.
A woman in Ireland named Denise O’Reilly grabbed some money from her purse last month, and one of the bills had a message on it that said, “Christy, it’s always been you. Come and find me.” And it was signed by someone named Megan.
So Denise posted a picture of it online, and asked people to share it, so whoever ‘Christy’ was might see it. And it actually WORKED. Thousands of people shared it on Facebook, and a guy named Christy Leech came forward the next day.
It turns out he’s a musician, and his ex-girlfriend wrote the note. He says they broke up a while back, then she came to one of his shows about six months ago, and wrote the note before she used the bill to pay the cover.
Apparently she thought the money would go straight to the band, but Christy didn’t see it, and never knew she was there. He also says her name isn’t actually Megan. It’s an inside joke, because he THOUGHT her name was Megan the first time they met.
It’s not clear if they’re dating again, and we still don’t know her real name. But he confirmed that they ARE back in touch now.
By the way, he also said the line “It’s always been you” that she wrote on the money is the name of a SONG he wrote about her while they were still together.

Note on a Dollar
Maybe you’re one of those people who stocked up on Beanie Babies in the ’90s because you thought they’d be worth a fortune one day. But after two decades of taking up space, you’re ready to sell ’em all for pennies.
Well . . . be careful. There’s one family in Cornwall, England that actually won the Beanie Baby lottery, and didn’t realize it.
22-year-old Ryan Flanaghan and his 20-year-old girlfriend Leah Rogers went to a garage sale earlier this month and bought a purple Beanie Baby for about $15.
Turns out the people selling it had no idea it was a limited edition Princess Diana memorial bear. There were only 100 made, and it could be worth up to $93,000.
Leah and Ryan put it up on eBay with a starting bid of $37,500 . . . and a “Buy It Now” price of $60,000. Their auction ends tomorrow . . . and so far, they haven’t gotten any bids.

33-year-old Jill Roy of Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts works at Dunkin’ Donuts. And in spite of unlimited access to unlimited calories, apparently she’s still super skinny with no butt.
So Jill went ahead and got herself a FAKE BUTT prosthesis, which she wears out to give herself a little extra something.
How do we know? Because Jill hasn’t just been using her fake butt to attract men in possession of anacondas.
Jill was pulled over a few weeks ago, and as she was standing near a cop car, a bag of marijuana that she’d hidden in her fake butt fell out of her pant leg. So the cops took her into the station and searched her.
During the search, a female deputy noticed the fake butt and asked Jill to take it off. And when she did . . . there were illegal painkillers AND a bag of heroin hidden in it.
Jill was hit with several felony and misdemeanor narcotics charges.

Pink thanked fans for their concern after she was forced to postpone two US tour dates. It turns out she’s on “vocal rest” for the next four days after getting medical advice earlier this week.
She tweeted: “Thanks for all the support y’all. Not very dramatic- doctor just wants me on complete vocal rest for four days to heal. So I can kick ass. Both shows rescheduled and very quickly. Touring would be terribly easy if I lip synced. See you soon xo”
Last night’s show in Utah has been rescheduled to October 29th and tonight’s show in Denver will happen October 30th.
