Here’s yet another reason to join the cord-cutting revolution.

A man in Spokane, Washington was surprised to find out that Comcast had changed his name from Ricardo Brown to “a**hole” Brown on his most recent bill.

He and his wife Lisa had been trying to cancel their cable subscription with the company, which should have been a very simple process.

But it was not.

They first reported the issue to consumer advocate Christopher Elliott, who wrote:

Instead of complying immediately, a representative escalated her call to a retention specialist, who tried to persuade her to keep the cable service and sign a new two-year contract.

His wife said she was not being rude, but the Comcast customer service agent decided to get back at them for not taking the offer in the most passive aggressive and childish way possible.

Elliot spoke with a Comcast rep who eventually apologized.

“We have spoken with our customer and apologized for this completely unacceptable and inappropriate name change,” he said. “We have zero tolerance for this type of disrespectful behavior and are conducting a thorough investigation to determine what happened. We are working with our customer to make this right and will take appropriate steps to prevent this from happening again.”

The company also promised to fire the employee responsible and has offered to both waive the $60 cable cancellation fee (how generous) and provide a refund of their two years of cable service.

Real Madrid player and underwear model Cristiano Ronaldo became slightly less ridiculously good looking last week and kicked a soccer ball around with a clueless kid in the streets of Madrid.

He wore a shaggy wig with fake mustache/beard, sunglasses and a baggy sweatsuit, and he carried a blue backpack. Look… he’s just like us!

The two played juggled the ball around a bit without drawing any attention.

He eventually removed his disguise, revealing his true identity to the boy and everyone else in the street who immediately pull out their phones to take pictures.

Before walking away, he gave the boy a hug and signed a ball for him.

Passive agressives rejoice!

A new service called "ShipYourEnemiesGlitter.com" launched (and crashed) this week, offering to enact revenge for you by sending packets of glitter and a note to anyone you dislike.

The company says their hatred of glitter (i.e the "herpes of the craft world") is what inspired them to start the service, because it's nearly impossible to clean up.

Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney, Michelle Bachmann and Newt Gingrich all know what we're talking about.

It costs $9.99 Australian dollars (or about $8.15 in the United States), and anyone who wants to use the service just fills out a short form with the contact info for whomever they want to glitter bomb.

They will then "vomit up a tonne of glitter" and send it to your arch nemesis.

"There's someone in your life right now who you fucking hate," they write on the site. "Whether it be your shitty neighbour, a family member or that b*tch Amy down the road who thinks it's cool to invite you to High Tea but not provide any weed."

ShipYourEnemiesGlitter.com was bombarded this week with requests after Monday's launch, and it says that purchases are temporarily suspended as a result.

Slate interviewed the founder, a 22-year-old internet marketer from Australia named Mathew Carpenter, who says the response was overwhelming.

"Over 2,000 of the world's brightest people have spent money on this service," he said. "It's good for business, but bad for society."

Well, this is awkward.

A woman at a mall pretends to find $100 under the chair of another woman seated at a makeup counter.

Almost immediately she claims it to be her own, even pretending to check her purse for the missing bill.

At least she seems to laugh it off when the truth is revealed.

Liam Neeson apparently took his role of Bryan Mills in "Taken" very seriously.

On Conan, co-star Maggie Grace says Neeson is very protective of her in real life as well, and he went so far as to prank call her ex-boyfriend in character.

"You've made two mistakes. Your first mistake was dating out of your league," he said. "Your second mistake — well, let's just say any more mistakes and I'll break your other arm. Slowly."

Best fake dad ever.

While most young people would be super excited to unwrap an Apple iPhone box on Christmas day, Grandma was not so pleased.

"I'm really not equipped to handle this," she said, noting that she uses a landline.

Fortunately for her, it wasn't exactly an iPhone, but it was still pretty sweet.

Prankster Josh Paler Lin gave $100 to a homeless man on the street, but it wasn't just a random act of kindness. He wanted to know exactly what he would do with the money and capture it on film.

Next thing you know, the guy is walking into a liquor store. But what he buys will surprise you and probably bring a tear to your eye.

"I wasn't expecting to get this kind of footage," he writes in the caption. "To be honest, I thought this video would be more an exposing homeless people video at first. But I'm so glad that I could witness and capture such a beautiful moment."
