Natty Light Will Pay $10,000 for the Best ‘Real Life Nightmare’ Costume

By |2019-10-18T09:30:26-05:00October 18th, 2019|

Hey college kids!! If you're still working on costume ideas, here's some extra incentive to get creative for Halloween this year . . . The makers of Natural Light are doing a costume contest on social media.  And the person with the best 'real life nightmare' costume will win TEN GRAND. Here's what that means:  They want people to dress as, quote, "real-life everyday" fears.  And they posted a few examples. One of them is a woman in prison garb, holding a ball-and-chain with the words "Student Loans" written on it.  So her costume is, quote, "Shackled by Student Debt." Another [...]

By |2019-10-18T06:57:49-05:00October 18th, 2019|

Airbnb is going hard on stunts lately with hooking people up with places like the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, Goodyear Blimp, and Jim Beam distillery. Now here's their latest...and BEST! In honor of the 60th anniversary of Barbie, they're offering a chance to spend two nights at a real-life version of Barbie's Malibu Dream House in California. EEEEEEEK! From the pictures, the place looks very impressive.  And it's just $60-a-night. But . . . only ONE person will get to make a reservation to stay there. Reservations open next Wednesday at 2:00 P.M. Eastern and if you're the one lucky person who gets through, you [...]

GOOD DAY NEWS STARTER: A Kid Lost a Tooth at Recess, so His Principal Wrote to the Tooth Fairy

By |2019-10-18T06:02:03-05:00October 18th, 2019|

A first-grader in Wisconsin LITERALLY lost a tooth at school last week.  But his principal made sure he still got paid for it! Curt Angeli is the principal at Gillett Elementary School, about 30 miles outside Green Bay.  And he found out a student lost a tooth at recess, but couldn't find it. Apparently it was already loose, and got knocked out while they were playing a game.  But no one could find it on the ground.  And the kid was worried the Tooth Fairy wouldn't come if there wasn't a tooth under his pillow. So Curt sat down and wrote [...]

Kellogg’s Is Selling Boxes of Six Cereals All Mixed Together

By |2019-10-17T07:09:45-05:00October 17th, 2019|

Kellogg's is selling special boxes of six of its cereals all MIXED TOGETHER.  But you'll have to jump on it fast, because they're selling them TODAY ONLY at KelloggStore.com.  So they'll sell out fast, if they haven't already. It's called "All Together" cereal, and each box costs $19.99.  It's a mix of Frosted Flakes, Froot Loops, Rice Krispies, Frosted Mini-Wheats, Raisin Bran, and Corn Flakes. They're doing it to raise money for Spirit Day today, which is all about diversity and LGBTQ awareness.  They sold similar boxes last year.  But you could only get them at the Kellogg's Café in New York, and you had to [...]

GOOD DAY NEWS STARTER: A Guy Got Creative and Went to Great Lengths to Return a Lost Wallet

By |2019-10-16T05:59:17-05:00October 16th, 2019|

I wish everyone were this nice. The world would be a much better place... A 30-year-old guy in London named Tim Cameron lost his wallet on Monday while he was riding his bike home from work. And almost immediately, a random guy named Simon Byford got in touch to get it back to him.  But the great part is HOW he got in touch. Tim's license was in there, but there was no way to call or email him.  And "Tim Cameron" is such a common name, Simon couldn't find him on Facebook. His bank card had his account number on [...]

GOOD DAY NEWS STARTER: Florida Man Pays off Lunch Debts for Every Child in 9 Schools

By |2019-10-15T06:20:12-05:00October 15th, 2019|

Here's an honest question: do you think you could be this selfless? $944.34 was the total outstanding lunch debt in all nine Jupiter area schools and one local man says that's a small price to pay to make a big difference in a life of a child, WPEC reports. "I went in there and I said 'I want to pay off the lunch debt,'" Andrew Levy said. When Levy learned that over 400 kids in his community couldn't get a full meal in their school cafeterias, he felt he had to take action. "These children that were in debt were going to either [...]

This is one of  my favorite moments from SNL this weekend...and now I want to see the movie!

(WARNING:  The video contains an uncensored B-word and other questionable language.) https://youtu.be/kqpak5lFxvs   SOURCE: SNL   Cari

GOOD DAY NEWS STARTER: A Woman Kept Paying for Her Lost Dog’s Microchip for 12 Years, and Finally Found Her

By |2019-10-14T06:00:34-05:00October 14th, 2019|

This isn't a ton of money.  But how long would YOU keep paying it? A woman in Florida named Katheryn Strang lost her two-year-old dog Dutchess back in 2007 when her 12-year-old son left a door open.  And they never saw her again. The dog had a microchip though.  And even after a decade, Katheryn kept paying the $15 yearly fee to keep it activated, just in case. She says paying for it each year meant she didn't have to give up hope.  And that alone was worth 15 bucks, even though she never expected to see Dutchess again. But then [...]

The Top Things to Consider Before Deciding on a Halloween Costume

By |2019-10-11T08:58:14-05:00October 11th, 2019|

I was drinking a little last night (seriously 1 Truly will do this to me) and it got me thinking about Halloween. It's coming up quick and if you haven't come up with a costume idea, I have some things to consider before deciding on 'the one'. Like... Should I just wear a choker and go as a Los Angeles Dodger (or change this to a MN Twins player)? It might not be a good idea to take costume suggestions from Justin Trudeau. How hard will it be to go to the bathroom in it? If I go as a cat, will [...]
