You gotta watch out for those Starbucks lovers.

Laura Roberts, a 19-year-old customer at Starbucks in London, received a rather flirty (and cheesy) message on her coffee cup from a male barista.

The unidentified employee scratched out the hot coffee warning and left this message: "Careful you're extremely hot" with an arrow and smily face.

Calm down, lover boy!

The thing is Roberts is engaged and her mom has Facebook—both big problems. Her mom posted a photo of the cup on the Sh*t London Facebook page.

The post received tons of backlash and angry comments, but Roberts is choosing to not identify the barista.

"It's my local Starbucks and he's lovely," she told MailOnline. "He always does it."

"That day I sent a picture of the cup to my mum, because she lives quite far away and she put the picture on Facebook."

Moral of the story: Keep mom off Facebook.

This could either be really entertaining or really stupid. Probably both.

This Halloween Eve, psychic medium Chip Coffey and the reality stars of Ghost Asylum are going to try to cleanse the home in Missouri that inspired the 1971 film The Exorcist.

They are calling it Exorcism: Live!, which, despite the title, is not a musical.

Jodi Tovay, senior manager of development and production at Discovery Communications, sat down with People to give her thoughts on the upcoming show.

"This is the most dangerous night in television. When you're dealing with the spirit world, there are actual physical risks involved," she warns.

"It is not a hoax. This is a real story that happened and we are telling it. We want you to watch our show and prove us wrong. I dare you not to be scared."

Well, now you've convinced us! This is totally real and not a gimmick at all.

So, there's a new reigning Jeopardy champion that is getting a lot of attention. Just not all of it for his smarts.

Uproxx introduces him as such:

Meet Matt Jackson, a 23-year-old paralegal from Washington, D.C. who is currently crushing the competition in a nine-day winning streak on Jeopardy, and likely not going anywhere anytime soon. In a profile posted to Jeopardy's website this week, Jackson says he was encouraged to try out for the show by his friend Sam Spaulding, who finished second place in the 2010 College Championship, winning $50,000.

But there's way more to it.

People are really drawn to the very creepy smile he uses during the introduction sequence.

It's kind of wonderful.

Look at it!

The Soup thinks it's really funny as well.

And on top of that, his signature celebration move is also a thing of beauty.

Here's Jeopardy's video, letting you know the man behind the smile.

South Carolina floods cause caskets to rise out of the ground.

South Carolina is getting a lot of rain, you guys.

The last reports have it that parts of the state has received 25 inches, causing nine deaths.

It's a lot of rain. So much so that caskets have begun to rise out of cemeteries, buoyed by the immense amount of water.

This is obviously very traumatic, but it also poses a health risk with the release of volatile chemicals and gases that might be harmful.

President Obama declared a state of emergency for the state on Saturday. The rain will end soon, but the troubles seem to be only starting for the beleaguered areas.

This creep gave a wet willy to a stranger's four-year-old.

This should be a no brainer. Just don't give wet willies to a stranger's child in public.

Well, one 34-year-old Connecticut man never learned that lesson and now he's paying the price for being a big ol' creep.

According to WWLP:

Police say Michael Migani stuck his finger in his mouth, then put it in the child's ear in the presence of the boy's mother. They say the boy was playing with his mother in the waiting room of a Center Street business when the incident happened.

According to authorities, Migani fled in his car when the mother and staff confronted him. Officers later stopped him.

Now the weirdo is charged with second-degree reckless endangerment and second-degree breach of peace.

Still, there are worse wet willies you can give to a child.

Come for the delicious wings and beer, stay for the violation of your privacy!

A comedian named Tamale Rocks was performing at a bar in Chicago called Cigars and Stripes, when she noticed something strange in the women’s bathroom.

There was a full length mirror opposite the toilet, which upon further investigation, turned out to actually be a two-way mirror allowing anyone to secretly watch you pee while hiding in a supply closet on the other side.

After the video was posted online, Jezebel contacted the bar’s owner Ronnie Lotz, to inquire about the mirror, and his response to whole thing is absolutely insane.

You need to read the entire thing.

“I will burn this fucking place to the ground before I get rid of that mirror,” he said. “Do you know how much joy that mirror has brought to us?”

He says the bar also used to hang a witch’s head in the supply closet to scare women. And throughout their conversation, he repeatedly mentions his chicken wings.

“We specialize in making people feel very uncomfortable,” he added.

Mission accomplished.

The bar has since promoted Jezebel’s article on their own Facebook page.

There are super fans, and then there are super crazy fans.

This Venezuelan man is one of the latter.

Henry Damon had his nose chipped off along with several other surgeries to make him look more like the villain Red Skull from Captain America.

"He has loved comic books since he was a kid and always dreamed of being Red Skull, but never got round to doing it," said one of his friends.

Damon now goes by the name "Red Skull" and in addition to the nose removal, he also had his eyeballs tattooed black, his face tattooed red and black and subdermal lumps added to his forehead.

His next step is to get silicone implants on the cheekbones, chin and cheeks and dye his entire face red.

Maybe he should have opted for the Chris Evans look instead.
