New York developer Mike Lazer-Walker developed WhatsApplebees (like WhatsApp, get it?) as a snarky commentary on the state of boneheaded social media attempts by big business. Use the app to find and connect with Applebee's fans in your area and around the world, the promise goes, but (un?)fortunately it's only an unofficial pet project. When you think about it though, a corporate-sponsored social media and messaging app doesn't seem that far-fetched, does it?

Ella Birchenough dropped her Blackberry into a storm drain after fumbling to get it into her pocket (don't laugh, we've all been there). Not content with losing it forever, she attempted to excavate the phone herself. Then, in a scene straight out of Every Cartoon Ever, her legs were left dangling while her upper torso was stuck in the drain. Birchenough insisted that she didn't need assistance, but her panicked mother called the local fire department to help get her out safely.

The phone, however, now belongs to the rats and sewer mutants.
