Twitter has come down with a strange crush on Dean Strang and Jerome "Jerry" Buting. These two intrepid defense attorneys from the increasingly popular 'Making a Murderer' series have struck a chord with the audience in a way that might give new meaning to justice porn.

man finds dildo in shopping cart after negative review on amazon

Imagine this: you're a student looking for some specific edition of a no doubt ridiculously overpriced textbook, and you think you found what you need on Amazon. You order it, relieved that you don't have to go to your school's bookstore and provide your firstborn as payment. Only when you get the book, it's the wrong edition. You contact Amazon to track down the right edition, and after a few days they tell you they don't have it and to return the book for a full refund.

That's exactly what happened to Pedro in Ireland. Frustrated with his experience, Pedro left a negative review in a customer satisfaction survey, only to later find an enormous schlong, "The Hulk 10.25-inch Huge Dong Black," in his shopping cart ready to offend any delicate sensibilities: "I was at the office, in an open space, with people behind me. A guy and two girls were sitting by me when I opened up Amazon and they saw the contents of my shopping basket." Well, maybe your coworkers should learn not to look at other peoples' monitors, Pedro.



Pedro contacted customer support, and though they wouldn't confirm an Amazon representative had placed the item in his cart, they issued him a €100 credit and an apology, saying they would work with HR to make sure this didn't happen again.

Pedro stands by his actions, believing that any bad customer service should be reported, and that "the entry for "The Hulk" is completely misleading. I would expect something called "The Hulk" to be green. It's picture is pink and the description says it is black. My whole issue with Amazon.de started because of incorrect description of items -- and this entry does not help their case."

Cards Against Humanity, rather infamous for its mildly offensive card game, shared an open letter to its website for the holiday season that pulls on all the heart strings.

"This year, 150,000 people signed up to receive Eight Sensible Gifts for Hannukah from us.

Like many of the physical products we buy, most of these gifts were made in China. This is something a lot of companies don't like to draw attention to, and as a result Americans often don't see the labor that goes into the things they buy. But we've always viewed the way our stuff is made as a part of who we are.

Our printer in China has grown with us from a small business to a huge operation, and it's important to us to go above and beyond our obligation to the workers who make our game. While our factory provides excellent wages and working conditions, Chinese working conditions are generally more strict. This year, we used the money from one day of our holiday promotion to give our workers something very uncommon in China: a paid vacation.

The printer didn't have any formal procedures for paid vacations, so we bought 100% of the factory's capacity and paid them to produce nothing for a week, giving the people who make Cards Against Humanity an unexpected chance to visit family or do whatever they pleased.

This doesn't undo the ways that all of us profit from unfair working conditions around the world, but it's a step in the right direction. Below yo'll find some thank-you notes and vacation photos from that factory staff shared with us."

Please tell us this is some sort of sick and perverse joke; or at least that younger generations aren't this far lost in the throes of a technology-addled era?

This armed occupation of a federal building is led by three of Cliven Bundy's sons. These Oregon ranchers want the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge land to be given to them. A spokesperson for the group has told The Oregonian that they are willing to "kill or be killed" but Twitter users felt the coverage of the event was unsatisfactory. They managed to fill in the gaps using hashtags like #YallQaeda, #YeeHawd and #VanillaISIS.

Adam McKay and Will Ferrell catapulted their entertainment website, Funny or Die, back in '07 with an unrivaled viral hit sketch, 'The Landlord.'

In a recent interview, McKay disclosed some details about how such a masterpiece originated.

McKay went on to say his toddler, Pearl, was in a phase where she'd repeat back anything said to her. We're talking as far as Public Enemy lyrics.

This inspired his idea for a little short with his guest Will Ferrell, and the rest speaks for itself.

Following her immediate success, toddler Pearl was on the edge of her big break. She was offered a guest spot on Ellen, a spread in People magazine, and even a little role in a Jackie Chan flick. Her parents turned down all offers on her behalf.

Nowadays, little ten-year-old Pearl's untouched by any of her earlier fame. Who would've thunk it?
