YouTuber Adam Saleh was allegedly forcefully removed from his Delta flight today for “speaking another language.” He posted a video to twitter of the whole event and then live tweeted it.

Saleh, a YouTuber with over 2 million subscribers, uploaded the video twitter where it has been retweeted over 450,000 times. To put that in perspective Donald Trump usually tops out under 170,000 retweets. 

Delta released a statement saying that they are investigating.

Making things a little murky is the fact that Saleh was already exposed this week for hoaxing an airport prank, in which he forced himself into a suitcase and was checked in to luggage.

Want to impress the neighbors or just make them insanely jealous for no reason, then you’ve got to get a big tree, bro.

That’s just what this Twitter user claims to have done. He and his family went out and bought a big tree — too big in fact. The tree didn’t fit in their living room, but that wasn’t their plan. they cut it in half and stuck the second half on the roof, creating the illusion that the tree goes through the roof. It’s a lot easier than raising the roof, right kids? Kids still say that, right? Please tell me they do.

We are vastly underestimating the GoPro.

While most of YouTube spends their time sticking these little marvels on drones and floating them over an abandoned theme park or something, these YouTubers are discovering what these cameras are made for: Shooting them out of a cannon.

via Reddit

Sorry, Harold, they aren't made for attaching them to trombones. They're made for shooting them out of a cannon. 

I know that you might think that GoPros are better for taking vacation footage or exploring the ocean deep or just getting some cool B-Roll, but trust me, it’s true purpose is shooting them out of a cannon. Just think of it, all the fun of being a circus sideshow freak without any of the danger. It’s the American dream.

YouTubers Sam and Niko explain how it was done in the description.

Potato Cannon we used was built with PVC pipes. We basically went to Home Depot and assembled all the pieces before buying them. It's filled using an air compressor through a nozzle that's tapped into the end of the air chamber. The gun's worked great for the decade or so we've had it!

Pretty cool, but not, like, cannon cool.

Apologies for the pun, but you must see this video.

Tasty, the web’s foremost purveyors of quick cooking videos shot from a bird’s eye perspective, has published their masterpiece: A wreath made of cinnamon rolls. My heart skips a beat every time I write that.

There’s not too much to this. This is just the most delicious looking Christmas wreath is perhaps the most soothing thing you’ll see tofday, and considering we posted a bunch of pictures of horrible sea creatures earlier, just sit back and enjoy this.

police officer pulls college kid over and teaches him to tie a tie

Tying a tie is basically impossible, especially when you need some guy who isn’t your father to help you tie. Just ask this college kid who had the cop that pulled him over teach him how to do it. 

When college student Tevor Keeny was pulled over for speeding by Officer Martin Folczyk, he admitted that he didn’t know how to tie a tie, telling Folczyk that he was rushing to a friend’s house because his friend knows how to tie a tie. That’s when the cop arrested him and threw him in jail.

Just kidding, the cop taught him to tie a tie.

Ugh. He’s not even the kid’s real father. What’s next, he’s going to expect to play catch with this kid he pulled over? Is he going to teach him to shave? The cop isn’t even his real father!

The War on Christmas has been going since the beginning of Christmas, apparently. 

Adam might have ruined the history behind It’s a Wonderful Life, but today today he’s going for the yuletide jugular.

In this clip from “Adam Ruins Christmas,” Adam Conover takes audiences on an animated journey back to ancient solstice festivals to mark the end of Harvests. These parties were filled with cool things like cross dressing and fire — not tinsel, Aunt Mary-Anne. They were also the original Christmas celebrations, before a certain someone crashed the party.

Eventually, Adam tells that when Christians took over, they gradually introduced Jesus into these celebrations as a compromise. Citizens of newfound Christian municpalities could continue their celebrations if they included Jesus, so December 25 became Jesus' birthday party.

Melding the bright colors and imagination of Inside Out and the crude, everything’s for sale cynicism of Trolls, Sony Pictures is delighted to present The Emoji Movie, and even they seem a little “meh” on it.

Following the story of what your Emoji keyboard is really up to when you’re not frantically Googling “What is life supposed to mean anyway?” The Emoji Movie boasts a star-studded cast including “Smiley Face” and “Poop Emoji,” who, get this, has a really dignified voice!

Ugh. Why is this happening? Oh, right, we’re in hell.

Sony Released an official synopsis, which, jeez, what’s going on where they had to make this movie?

The Emoji Movie unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis [Ed. Come on], a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user [Ed. Stop]. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene (T.J. Miller), an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Ilana Glazer). Together, they embark on an epic “app-venture” [Ed. Who is this joke for?] through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it’s deleted forever. Directed by Tony Leondis. Written by Tony Leondis & Eric Siegel and Mike White. Produced by Michelle Raimo Kouyate.”

The Emoji Movie opens August 4, so you better start calling your state and local representatives now.

Ah, the yule log, is there anything better to cozy up to on a cold wintry night?

Not even a real fireplace could compare. After all, there’s no way to change the channel on a fireplace. 

Well, I’ll give you this: One of the great things about a real fireplace is that you can actually burn something in it. Whether it’s a false ledger you use to evade your taxes, your medical records, or a written confession to a crime, nothing purifies you body and soul like a nice, cleansing fire.

via Mashable

So in the spirit of giving you something to burn, the folks over at The Daily Show have given you the next best thing: A burning constitution over Christmas carols and the dulcet tones of that reality TV gameshow host who won the presidency last month delivering some of his famous catchphrases, like “we’re going to be saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again” and “bing bing bong bong.” Five-hours of Christmas cheer. Oh, it feels great to say that again: "Christmas." Remember when saying “Christmas” was punishable by death?

So put your arm around that special someone, take a sip of cocoa, and get ready for 2017 because, hoo, boy, it’s going to be a lot worse than this piece of garbage year.

Now this is the droid we're looking for.

In a desperate attempt to somehow get even more Star Wars into the world, people are digging up some real strange versions of the George Lucas classic. Chief among them is the 1982 Turkish pseudo-remake, Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam, or The Man Who Saves the World. Now that’s a title.

Great Big Story talked to film historian Ed Glaser, who spends a lot of his time hunting down bizarre, cheap-o remakes of some of Hollywood’s biggest hits. Glaser has seen, restored, and/or attempted to re-release weird foreign rip-offs and remakes, including Nigerian Titanic, Turkish Rambo, and Egyptian Rocky Horror Picture Show.

“The holy grail of these kinds of films is Çetin İnanç's The Man Who Saves the World, better known as The Turkish Star Wars,” he says. “I’ve never really seen anything like it. It’s a little bit like a fever dream.”

Now don’t get your hopes about this one. It’s not exactly the story of Star Wars. It just cuts some of Lucas’ footage into another weird movie about a half naked man and his sword. According to The Verge, “It, ahem, borrows footage from other sci-fi flicks, as well as music scores from movies like Raiders of the Lost Ark. More importantly, however, is its inclusion on Wikipedia’s list of the worst films ever made. That’s an honor that makes us dying to get ahold of it.”

Check out the video and marvel at some of the footage. Now if only they could cut some of this footage into Episode VIII.

jerry lewis gives awkward interview to the hollywood reporter

There’s no business like show business, and because of that, you don’t have to care about other people.

When Jerry Lewis, the Hollywood icon behind The Nutty Professor, agreed to sit down with The Hollywood Reporter, that didn’t necessarily mean he would be answering any questions. In fact, it means he'll be the one asking the questions, thank you very much.

Watch in horror as he wastes everyone’s time for seven minutes, parroting back whatever the last thing the interviewer asks him.

If nothing else, this should prepare you for your next job interview. If you find yourself in a rough patch, just start screaming "Why?" at the interviewer. It works.
