25 Food Order Fails Packed With Facepalm

It should be known by now that we enjoy mocking other people's misfortune - and as schadenfreude goes, these amusing tales are pretty lighthearted. When Twitter user @lillyannatrnr shared a facepalm-worthy serving anecdote from her boyfriend's past, we're willing to bet she didn't think she was starting a thread of epic proportions. But his ignorance regarding creme fraiche and the laughs that followed inspired other users to share their own food-service and grocery work blunders. The result? A massive thread of funny fails and punny verbal comedy. We've picked out some of the better gems for you, but you can see more hilarity at the thread itself.

The Best Memes & Tweets About Four Seasons Total Landscaping

If you haven't been living under a rock for the past week, you're probably familiar with the Four Seasons Total Landscaping drama that occurred earlier this week in Philadelphia. On November 7th, President Trump tweeted that a press conference would be held at the Four Seasons in the Pennsylvania capital. Eight minutes later, Trump tweeted an update - that the conference would actually be taking place at Four Seasons Total Landscaping in the same city. 

The tweets led to a great deal of speculation as to whether the administration had intended to book the hotel. The speculation grew when it became clear that the location, between a sex shop and a crematorium, was probably not their first choice. After Rudy Giuliani spoke to crowds about voter fraud, and even used a convicted sex offender as a witness, the occasion was largely seen as a massive blunder. And as expected, the memes began flowing freely. We've put together some of our favorite examples from the last week, but we're willing to bet this press conference will be talked about for quite a while. Here's hoping Four Seasons Total Landscaping is enjoying the free publicity.

After fishing the donated heart from the wreckage of a non-fatal helicopter crash, firefighters handed off the thing to a waiting medical professional. Almost immediately, the staff member tripped and dropped the human heart on the ground. Doctors were still able to successfully transplant the heart, so other than that it went pretty well.

Soldier's Microwave Mishap Creates Chaos

Man oh man, sometimes the brain takes a lunch break, and a true fail presents itself. Take for instance, this soldier who microwaved a can of Chef Boyardee (with the lid on), on an active military base. Naturally, the resulting mess created a nice eruption of chaos, given the environment.

Whoops of The Day: A Giant Blimp is on The Loose Somewhere Over Pennsylvania

Someone has got some explaining to do.

A giant U.S. surveillance blimp came untethered today around noon and is now floating 16,000 feet over Pennsylvania. Oh, and two F-16s have been deployed to monitor the situation.

The blimp is part of the Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Netted Sensor System (JLENS), a radar system used to pick up aerial threats.

But now it has become a threat itself to the good people of Pennsylvania, who are being advised to call 911 if they spot the monstrosity.

And because people on the Internet are horrible, they made some dumb jokes about the blimp.

Blimp 2K15, where are you?

Always wait for the boat to actually stop moving before you get off, or terrible things can happen.

Exhibit A: This guy.

As the ferry nears land, he scurries off the ramp and ends up taking a tumble into the sand.

Fortunately, someone quickly comes to his rescue and pulls him out just before the ramp slams down on his back.

Just when you think robots are about to take over the world, they go and do something like this.

The DARPA Robotics Challenge was held this past weekend, with numerous teams “vying to develop robots capable of assisting humans in responding to natural and man-made disasters.”

Turns out they had a few disasters of their own as well.

IEEE Spectrum created a compilation of robot falls from the first day of the finals, and while this is pretty funny to watch in itself, one YouTuber took it a step further and mashed it up with some WWE commentary turning it into Internet gold.

“As much as nobody wanted to see a robot fall, everybody wanted to see a robot fall,” wrote IEEE Spectrum on their blog.

The course involved the competing robots trying to open doors, turn valves, drive cars and climb over rubble.

Team KAIST from South Korea took home the top prize with the fastest time, and here’s their robot, DRC-Hubo, stepping up to victory. It was built with wheels on its knees to help protect it from taking a tumble.

“These robots are big and made of lots of metal and you might assume people seeing them would be filled with fear and anxiety,” said DRC organizer Gill Pratt. “But we heard groans of sympathy when those robots fell. And what did people do every time a robot scored a point? They cheered!”

Meanwhile, nothing can stop the beasts from Boston Dynamics, so while these falls are funny, the threat is still very real.

A flaw in Apple’s iOS is allowing pranksters to remotely shut down other people’s phones.

Some iPhone users on Reddit recently discovered that sending a certain string of text to someone will force the recipient’s device to crash and reboot.

The issue apparently lies in the way the iPhone handles notifications and unicode.

Here’s an explanation from The Guardian:

When the text message is displayed by a banner alert or notification on the lockscreen, the system attempts to abbreviate the text with an ellipsis. If the ellipsis is placed in the middle of a set of non-Latin script characters, including Arabic, Marathi and Chinese, it causes the system to crash and the phone to reboot.

You can watch the error in action in the demo video above.

It reportedly only works if the other person does not already have their text thread open at the time, and you can prevent it from happening to you by turning off banner notifications and text previews (Here’s a visual of the settings on Imgur).

And if you can’t access your messages after the glitch, you can also apparently send a new message to the thread using Siri or Notes, and when it opens just delete the malicious text.

Of course the best way to prevent this from happening is by not being a troll and sending the text to anyone in the first place.

Apple apparently knows this is a problem and is hopefully working on a fix ASAP.

A black and white American flag t-shirt spotted at a Pacific Sunwear in Alabama this weekend has a lot of people seeing red.

Rachel Zawacki-Kuss uploaded the above photo to Facebook on Saturday, with a message saying that she would never be shopping at the store again.

“Seeing the flag used that way was incredibly upsetting to me,” she wrote. “The display was in bad taste, it was disrespectful and insensitive to the sacrifices that have been made by so many service members.”

According to the U.S. Flag Code: “The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.”

It sells for $23.95 online and is actually part of a line of clothing in collaboration with the A$AP Mob, a hip hop collective from New York.

But her post still struck a chord with lots of people online considering that it was Memorial Day weekend, a holiday intended to pay tribute to fallen men and women in the armed forces.

Angry Americans are expressing their outrage by posting messages on both the PacSun Facebook page and the A$AP Mob page criticizing the group and demanding that the shirt be removed from stores.





It has since been removed from that specific store in light of the complaints, according to the NY Daily News.

Just a few weeks ago, Under Armour was involved in a similar controversy, in which the clothing company was forced to apologize for selling an Iwo Jima basketball t-shirt.

PacSun’s Twitter account has been promoting some other American Flag themed designs for Memorial Day as well, including various shirts, shoes, bathing suits and tank tops.

So if you aren’t a fan of the flag shirt, they offer plenty of other options to show off your patriotism like these two.
