For Global News Calgary’s Leslie Horton, double dipping isn’t really going to be a problem.

While sharing her favorite holiday recipes on air last week, Horton admitted that something had gone “terribly wrong” with her artichoke dip. The congealed substance in a glass bowl known as “artichoke dip” looked closer to scrambled eggs and smelled of “vinegar,” despite there being no vinegar in the recipe. Her colleagues looked on in horror, fearing that they might be next to try.

“It’s not supposed to look like that,” someone off camera moans.

Everyone around the table looks visibly disgusted, with Leslie’s first victim eyeballing the dip in terror. Another comments, it “smells like a barn.” Leslie watches in glee, like a Bond villain monologuing their plans for global domination. Another spits up the dip.

“Is it edible?” asks anchorman Scott Fee.

The clip climaxes when meteorologist Jordan Witzel takes his first bite.

“At first, I’m like, ‘Well, it’s not that bad,’” he says. “But then the vinegar!”

“But there’s no vinegar,” replies Horton.

Other great moments: Anchor Amber Schinkle screaming “It burns.”

Apparently, Horton didn’t have the proper ingredients for the recipe, substituting an orange for lemon and just adding celery salt and oregano for no reason what so ever.

Watch the clip and remove Leslie Horton from your invite list.

space enthusiasts send pie into space to see if it will cook better

Life hack: If your oven’s on the fritz, try sending a pie to space. Wait, what?

A crew of space fanatics called SentIntoSpace, who refuse to clean their oven or something, attached a camera and GPS to a meat and potato pie and sent this baby to space. Eat your heart out, Easy Bake Oven.

According to Mashable, SentIntoSpace claims that they wanted to see if the flight into space altered the molecular structure of the pie, making it easy to bake.

“It was hoped that the pie would freeze as it soared from the earth's crust and would be cooked as it speeded up on re-entry.” 

But we all know that it was just because their oven was broken or worse, they don’t know how to use that thing. You know, sometimes it’s just better to ask how to use it. Call your dad or something. Google it. I don’t know.

Step aside, Nobel Prize winners, because these dudes are right on your tails.

Presumably after discussing nuclear physics, two Kentucky men allegedly moved their conversation to more pressing matters: Robbing a BBQ restaurant where the local police chief just happened to be eating at. How did the chief find out? Well, these two guys, who just have to be direct descendants of Einstein or something, pocket dialed 911 while they were discussing the plans.

A local NBC affiliate picked up the story, reporting:

“According to the Danville Advocate Messenger, police say two suspects were sitting inside their car outside of Brothers' BBQ, discussing their plans to rob the restaurant. Unfortunately for them, one of the men had accidentally pocket dialed police dispatch.”

“There was some conversation about when they should do it, they might be recognized if they do it in Danville, and I think they did talk about some different locations …” Police Chief Tony Gray said. “Somewhere in the conversation, my name was brought up.”

Dispatch triangulated the location “from key words, including the mention of Chief Gray's name.”

If these guys don’t get direct entry into MENSA…

Chief Gray and other officers apprehended the men in the parking lot, discovering a mask on one of them. It takes a certain level of intelligence to be a successful criminal, and at the top of it, make sure you’re calling 911 while you’re laying out the details.

Last night, Alan Ferrier from Edienburg, Scottland, did the impossible: He improved the perfect wikipedia photo caption. With the addition of the word “right” to this photo of a man playing bagpipes and an “indifferent” penguin, Ferrier showed the world the power of editing Wikipedia for hilarious, and factual, gains.

That’s when things took a turn. Twitter began editing this picture of Piper Kerr, who is on the right, ok?

Then found other pictures that could use more facts, like this one of seated economist Guy Standing.

Users found numerous captions in need of extra truth, like this one of Cecil the Lion’s brother, Jericho the Lion, who is also a lion.

And some they didn’t have to caption at all:

It just goes to show that there can never be too much truth in the world.

jon call weightlifter makes gains deadlifting 495 pounds while on rollerblades

The olympics are done. How do we know? Because weightlifter Jon Call just shut them down by deadlifting 495 pounds in rollerblades.

A video posted by Jon Call (@jujimufu) on

Call, with his long blond hair reminiscent of Thor, the god of thunder, blades into the gym, does a cool spin move and a little march, and deadlifts 495 pounds three times, before skating away, giggling over the world he has just conquered. Fear not, mortals, for he is a benevolent god who likes Michael Jackson.

Sure, you can see any old human deadlifting hundreds of pounds in the olympics, but how often do you seem them do it in rollerblades. Sorry, 2016 Olympic Gold-Medalist Lasha Talakhadze, but either get some blades on or stay home.

Jon Call does all sorts of things to prove that he’s a god, like carrying a couple hundred pounds over a fire in a horse mask and lifting at Thanksgiving dinner. If you're feeling an intense religious terror. Don't panic. That just means your still human, so check out the rest on Jon's Instagram.

christmas tree expert comedian joe pera makes things awkward on midwest morning news shows

For some reason, picking out the perfect Christmas tree puts people on pins and needles. Let’s get something straight, the only needles you should be on are the ones that fall from your tree.

That’s enough kidding around becuase finding the perfect tree can make or break your Christmas. So unless you want to have a terrible Christmas and have your family hate you, you better listen to stand-up comic and unaccredited Christmas tree enthusiast Joe Pera. He might not be a professional, but he knows a thing or two and loves to help. He also has an Adult Swim special on the subject

Pera recently appeared on a Detroit local news show to help the morning crew pick out the perfect tree. He tells them about his trip to Anderson’s tree farm in Newbury, Michigan, where the farm’s proprietor Merle and his wife Caroline taught him a whole lot. The segment, with the stuttering and dead air, is as soothing as they are unsettling.

The whole thing is delightfully awkward in the best way possible, and when this anchor tells him that she uses a plastic tree, well, things get tense.

He made the rounds that morning, delivering Christmas tree to a few other shows to similar results.
