The owners of this Seattle gas station decided to do something a little different with their sign. When they weren't sure what kind of specials to advertise, they just put up jokes instead.
Stryper is a Christian metal hair band that found some mainstream success in the 80s. And Ted Cruz looks exactly like the led singer, Michael Sweet.
Could he secretly be the frontman of this band, probably, but no one knows for sure. Michael Sweet has acknowledged the resemblance (kind of):
But it seems like he isn't that happy about the comparison and his fans DEFINITELY aren't. The Daily Dot posted this rant by a fan that was posted in the Facebook group Stryper Strong and has now been deleted:
Ok, we've all now seen at least a dozen times the Ted Cruz looks like Michael in one photo from 1983. I've been tagged, had it forwarded to me and have deleted countless postings on the Stryper page that I am webmaster for. First, stop it! Second, it's making fun of the band and my best friends. Third, it's making fun of anyone who dares be a fan (in other words....YOU). I don't like ANY of that! I discussed this with Michael the day he posted it and the only reason he posted was because of the free press that comes from it. He didn't like the post either and removed the original persons name from it. It has now grown to the point of being ridiculous. So, can I ask everyone to not post it anymore and to move on? Can we all agree on that? Can I get a like or comment of agreement on this? Sorry, it isn't funny anymore. (Never was).
Whether he's ready to "move on" or not, Sweet is certainly embracing the extra publicity:
Or should we say, Ted Cruz is embracing the publicity?
Every once in a while it is necessary to give your cat a bath. Hopefully, this guy really needed it because, judging by his 'thousand yard stare', he did not enjoy it. Or, maybe he was just a little surprised that his picture was taken. Now, to make matters worse, he's become the focus of a hilarious Photoshop battle.
Before there was Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and a host of other sites for people to vaguely post their feelings, there was Myspace. Some kind people on the internet have taken screenshots of what are (allegedly) Taylor Swift's old Myspace comments. These are so wonderfully dated, it will remind you of when you were a teen making inside jokes and quoting 'Sahara' just like her.
What should have been a magical encounter went wrong when a 400 pound pony dressed as a unicorn escaped from her photoshoot. The fugitive, named Juliet, led the California Highway Patrol on an intense, 3-hour chase. Eventually, according to the video description, police were able to let everyone know that, "The unicorn was in custody".
It can be fun to play around on Google Maps and see what crazy things they caught on street view. These photos are not as fun, they're actually kind of scary. Let's hope they're all just mistakes and not actual things that are lurking somewhere out there. You know what? No more street view.
