As soon as this Sprite advertisement was spotted, people started to complain. Why, maybe because instead of saying truths that are #BrutallyRefreshing, as the campaign intended, it really amounted to some cheap jokes that are #BrutallySexist. 

The responses were equal parts "Sprite, you should be ashamed!" and "Did no one in charge of marketing read over this and think that it could be offensive and/or sexist? Really? NO ONE?!?"

LA churro pop up The Naughty Churro likes it brown and swirly.

Made with a fondant, edible black marker, and named The Number Two, you too can eat sh*t a poop emoji churro if you're in the LA-area.

The delicious concoction can be found at the Night Market from August 5-7. Definitely serving this one at my next family reunion.

It's controversial. It's trendy. It's squishy. It's avocados used as buns! But seriously, would you eat this?

One of the world's most expensive meals ever (accidentally) signed off on. A man who has chosen to remain anonymous for suspected motivations to retain some dignity, accidentally rang up a $1.3 million dollar meal at Inverurie's Rajpoot Indian Restaurant in Scotland. Before that fat tip, the guy's meal, which included three entrees and drinks came out to be less than $100.



The Evening Express reports that restaurant owner, Abdul Wahid said: "When he came to pay I gave him the card machine and he asked to put in the amount himself but it didn't go through.


"I then had to phone the bank for him and I answered all of the questions and they then gave me the confirmation code.


"At this time he still had the card machine so I never saw the amount he had typed in.


"But 10 minutes later I took the machine and looked at it and I just said 'oh my god what's happened, what have you done my friend'. I looked at the receipt and then he looked at it and he just said 'oh my …'



"He then rang his bank up to say it was the wrong amount and cancel it before paying the correct amount."


"This has to be one of the most expensive meals there has ever been. I have never experienced anything like this. It was really, really shocking,” said Wahid. “I still can’t believe it.”

McDonald's Asked People to Invent Their Own Burgers Because Apparently They've Never Been on the Internet Before

A major corporation runs a campaign to let people on the internet be a little creative with their brand and said campaign fails spectacularly because people are awful. Sound familiar? It's a tale as old as time. Or at least as old as Wifi. This time the social media screw up is burger themed, YUM!

Two things that really got me going here: One, it's almost like he thought by showing the police he was playing Pokémon GO! that he thought it'd be all chill after. Second, I'm pretty sure he was still trying to catch whatever it was that got him in the accident, after being confronted by the cops for CRASHING into a cop car! Sheesh, man. Come on.

Sometimes we lose ourselves amidst the pursuit to catch 'em all...Let's just hope that this fool over in Milford, Michigan wasn't actually trying to catch a Parasect before he was apprehended by police authorities. 

Chief Thomas Lindberg said the man (William Wilcox) just made it easy, by showing up. Wilcox, a repeat offender with a warrant out for his arrest, ended up right in front of the men that'd go on to take him into custody.

"It was a misdemeanor warrant for a failure to appear on a breaking and entering charge," Lindberg said. "They approached him. Took him in custody without incident and he admitted he was trying to catch the character at the flagpole."

According to AL.com, a girl named Darby tried to prank her friends by wearing the head of a Barny costume. The joke didn't go quite as planned when the costume head slipped down below her shoulders leaving her both trapped, and forced to walk around with T-rex arms. Eventually, when her family and friends couldn't help her, they piled in a mini-van and headed down to the fire department where this hilarious scene took place:

No matter how patriotic you are, or how much you hate Wal-Mart, DON'T try this. Three guys set off a fireworks display inside an Arizona Wal-Mart. Now the police are looking for them. Fortunately, in this case no one was hurt by this display of pyrotechnics.

A Youtuber who's content is all about being vegan got attention recently for posting a video including the temper tantrum he threw after finding out that the sauce on his pizza actually contained cheese. You can watch the entire 27 minute video if you have the fortitude, otherwise, the action starts at about the 16 minute mark:



If you can't manage to watch the video but just want to be in the know, notable moments include the throwing of his phone and going on a tirade while flossing every speck of parmesian cheese from his teeth ON CAMERA.

We would post some internet reactions, but the vegan guy already created a video about it that you can hate-watch if you really want to know what other people are saying about that video:
