WTF of the Day: Woman Hijacks Handicapped Parking Spot, Leaves Nasty Note for Amputee

An hateful Ohio woman with terrible grammar has incurred the wrath of the Internet with her rude response to a disabled woman.

Ashley Brady lost her leg in 2014 in an accident, and she now uses a prosthetic one to help her walk.

She was given a designated handicapped parking spot at her apartment complex this month so it would be easier for her to get to her car, but another woman who was not handicapped started parking there instead.

Brady left a letter on the woman’s car complaining that she was in her spot and that she would be towed if she did it again. The woman replied with another note which has since gone viral, because she is the absolutely the worst.

The Amputee Coalition of America posted her note to their Facebook page which you can view below.

The messages reads:

Hey handicap! First, never place your hands on my car again! Second, honey you ain’t the only one with “struggles.” You want pity go to a one leg support group! You messed with the wrong one! I don’t care what your note said shove it, but you touch my car again I will file a report, I am not playing! I let the office know the cry baby one leg touches my property I will cause trouble so go cry your struggles to someone who cares cause I’m walking away with both mine!

“I read it probably like five times, over and over, because my brain just couldn’t even process the level of mean that it was,” Brady said.

Since posting the letter, she’s received lots of support from strangers on Facebook.

Promo of the Day: Spirit Airlines Gets Sexual with $69 Round Trip Deal

Spirit Airlines’ marketing department is run by teenage boys.

A recent promo on their website has gotten some people all hot and bothered with its blatant sexual innuendoes.

The ad, which expired on March 17, was for $69 round trip flights to celebrate the addition of its 69th plane.

From the promo:

We’ve been waiting to hit 69 planes for years. It’s our favorite number – ever since we were twelve and found that magazine under our brother’s bed (the one with the fantastic articles). #69 is perfect: just the right size, with a cockpit that’s in your face (because it’s bright yellow). Use your mouth to spread the word: Spirit is in an even better position to get you where you’re going. We’re popping an epic Bare Fare in celebration! $69.00* round trip!

And yes it’s very real.

“The goal with our marketing is to provide information about our low fares to our customers, in a unconventional manner, without the ads costing so much that we need to increase fares to cover those costs,” the company told Fox 9 in a statement.

Their “bare fare” policy is to charge less for a ticket, but not included typical perks that other airlines have like free beverages or carry-on bags. As a result of all the hidden fees, Spirit has become the most complained about airline in the U.S.

As the Huffington Post points out, the airline also launched – and were subsequently ridiculed for –a promotion last year that tied into the celebrity nude photo scandal.

It’ only been a few days since a pilot drew a penis in the sky in Florida, and another phallic phenomenon has already taken over the Internet.

The above screenshot of Network Ten anchor Natarsha Belling was posted to UNILAD’s Facebook page this past weekend, and it has since blown up and been shared on a number of different news sites around the world.

It was also trending on Facebook.

“Once you see it, you cannot unsee it…” UNILAD writes in the caption.

Unfortunate for her, but true. You will never not see a penis on Belling’s neckline.

No response yet from her on Twitter.

So far 2015 has been a good year for viral outfits. Which will you be wearing this Halloween? The white and gold dress, blue and black dress or penis jacket?

World Record of the Day: Watch Darshan the Eagle Fly Off of the Burj Khalifa

Talk about a bird’s eye view.

Darshan the white-tailed eagle made history on Saturday breaking the world record for the highest bird flight off a man-made structure.

A group called the Freedom Conservation strapped a Sony ActionCam Mini him and captured his 2,722-foot descent off the Burj Khalifa in Dubai to help raise awareness about the endangered species.

The charity works in partnership with both SOS (Save our Species) and UNESCO, and the stunt was also broadcast live on BBC News.

"I'm really proud of the bird,” his trainer, Jacques-Olivier Travers told Khaleej Times. "Today was really perfect. I really think that anyone who saw these shots will never think of eagles again in the same way."

This wasn’t the first time Darshan has soared off a tall building. He’s also flown from the Eiffel Tower in Paris and St Paul's Cathedral in London.

Honor of the Day: Illinois Mayor Gives Cobra Commander Key to the City

This week in Springfield, Illinois the forces of evil have emerged victorious.

Mayor J. Michael Houston has awarded G.I. Joe’s nemesis Cobra Commander the key to the city.

“Springfielders near and far, I accept your Mayor’s generous gift,” he said. “And let it be known that I too bring a gift for every man, woman and child of this city that is so near and dear to my heart; an invitation to join with me. Join Cobra!”

It makes a lot of sense, considering Springfield served as a secret base for the villain and his forces in the cartoon.

The stunt is actually a promotion for the upcoming G.I. Joe convention which will be held in the city, which they describe as the “mythical home of COBRA,” from April l9-12.

So now you know, and knowing is half the battle.

Here’s a supercut of Cobra Commander shouting at everyone because that’s just what he does and will continue to do in Illinois now that they’ve welcomed him with open arms.

Reaction of the Day: Lebanese TV Host Silences Sexist Sheikh After He Tells Her to ‘Shut Up’

Lebanese host Rima Karaki was interviewing Islamic sheik Hani Al Sibai last week on Al-Jadeed TV about why some Christians would want to join ISIS.

When he started to drag on, she interrupted him to keep the conversation moving, but he was not pleased at being told what to do.

“Listen, don’t cut me off,” he said. “I will answer as I please.”

She politely warns him that they are running out of time, and he rudely tells her to “shut up,” and that it is “beneath” him to be interviewed by her.

Eventually she just cut his mic to put a stop to it.

“Had I not answered, I would have hated myself, and I don’t want to hate myself,” she told The Guardian. “When he said shut up, it was no longer possible to shut up because I would be insulting myself and would lose everything.”

The confrontation between the two has since gone viral, and Sibai is demanding an apology from the network.

The video now has over 5 million views, and Karaki is getting lots of support from viewers on Twitter.

Congratulations Internet, you made this happen.

A Fox 2 news anchor in St. Louis named April Simpson became a viral sensation last week thanks to a video which showed her glaring her co-host Tim Ezell after he called her the “Hamburglar” on air.

Comedian Kevin Hart also posted the original clip to Facebook getting it lots of attention online.

The network then decided to play a little prank on April Monday morning, by having the actual Hamburglar appear on set to rub some fry salt in her wounds.

The crew also proceeds to throw hamburgers at her while she sits at her desk in disgust.

“Here’s my thing,” she says. “There are several people who are no longer my friends.”

She points to everyone in the room who participated in the stunt and says that she doesn’t even want to do the news anymore.

But it looks like she got over it, according to Twitter.
