The maker of Skittles is investigating a candy spill in rural Wisconsin after reports said the candy was intended for cattle consumption. Although Mars Inc., the company that manufactures the candy, admits that some of its discarded candy goes to feed cattle, it argues that this particular load of candy was not intended to become cow food.
While jokes flood social media with comments like “Now the cows won’t be able to taste the rainbow,” making a play on words of the Skittles’ slogan, the manufacturer of the candy does not seem to find this to be a laughing matter. First, the only spilled Skittles were red. Second, the Skittles did not have the letter “S” printed on them due to a plant power outage. Third, the candy maker insists that this particular plant does not sell products to be used for animal feed.
An outraged public has taken to social media to question why cows would be fed candy at all. Cattle nutritionist Josh Cribbs tried to assuage the fears of the concerned public by pointing out that the candy is broken down and mixed with other ingredients, depending on what other type of byproduct is available at any particular time of the year. Clearly, consumers of beef have been kept in the dark as to what cattle typically eat before hamburgers reach their dinner plates.
Meanwhile, the candy manufacturer is still investigating the reason why a bunch of their blank red Skittles ended up on a rainy highway in the Midwest. Wisconsin’s Dodge County Sheriff Dale Schmidt got the whole thing started this week when he posted on Facebook that someone found the Skittles spilled on the highway and suggested that the candy was on its way to becoming cow food. CNN and other news outlets picked up the reports before social media users made the story go viral.

This just in Star Wars nerds and nerdettes. For those who have just now come down from the amazing high that was Rogue One, fear not, for there is a new hope again. Do you see what I did there? Yeah, Star Wars puns all day.
It looks like Disney will be making good on their continued pledge to produce a Star Wars film every year, and this time they’re turning back to the story and characters we now know so well from “The Force Awakens”.
The new film will be titled, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”. That gave me chills right there. It sounds like this film will keep in running with the second installment as the darkest film of the trilogy. “The Last Jedi” will be written and directed by Rian Johnson, the creative mind behind “Looper”, and it is already confirmed that he will be involved in “Star Wars: Episode IX”. You can see behind the scenes work of what he’s currently up to here.
From what I can surmise, Rian Johnson intends to bring a new, darker energy to “Last Jedi” than his predecessor J.J. Abrams, who, although did a wonderful job, was a bit too preoccupied with fan service. Hopefully johnson will move us away from teary-eyed nostalgia, and perhaps we true fans will finally be rewarded with a Star Wars movie that breaks the mold.
We can only hope that Johnson fulfills his duties as director admirably. Although, Disney Studios will always be there to mess things up and force it into CGI absurdity, and all faster than you can say “It’s a trap!” This has happened before, as we all know too well. And it can always happen again.
It seems as if actress, Gwyneth Paltrow has been making headlines for letting her celebrity status go to her head. Her lifestyle blog, GOOP reads as a hilarious unrelatable fantasy for the normal person to only dream of. For example, social media had a field day when the starlet shared her recipe for her go-to breakfast smoothie recipe. The absurd recipe contained ingredients that very few people could even afford to have in their kitchen. The ingredients, such as moon dust, quickly added up to more than a thousand dollars. However, it seems as if this over-the-top behavior is nothing new. If anything , Paltrow shared that she has toned down her actions since getting a harsh dose of reality from her late father back in 1999.
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Paltrow explained that in her younger years during the beginning of her film success, her father told her that she was letting fame go to her head.
“I remember when I was maybe 27 years old and kind of at the height of my movie stardom — it was around the time of [my 1999 Best Actress Oscar for Shakespeare in Love] and this and that,” Paltrow told Harper’s Bazaar. “I was sitting with my dad, feeling great about my life and everything that was happening, and he was like, ‘You know, you’re getting a little weird … You’re kind of an a–hole.’ And I was like, ‘What the hell?’ I was totally devastated.”
The starlet claims that her father’s remarks inspired her to change her actions and keep her feet on the ground. If Paltrow has toned down her celebrity behavior, we can only wonder what kind of attention-seeking monster she would be. What other intergalatic ingredient can go in a breakfast smoothie?
Have you ever been in one of those arguments with your significant other where they just can’t make up their darn mind about what they want to eat? Yeah, everyone has. Responses of “whatever,” “I don’t care,” or “you decide” can ignite the fury of a thousand live volcanoes within anyone’s heart. Of course, both men and women are guilty of this in different contexts. Men can’t be bothered to make important decisions during sports games. Women can’t be bothered, well, ever.
One man decided to have a little fun with his girlfriend when presented with this exact situation after asking her what kind of pizza she wanted. She responded with the typical “whatever,” and so he placed an order for what he wanted. But it’s what was in the comments of the order that was pure gold.
He wrote “Please send me an extra empty box that has ‘whatever’ written in big letters in it because that’s what my girlfriend said she wants.” Savage.
Although there was no reaction video or anything like that posted online, one can only imagine that the fallout from this was monumental and the likes of which he has never seen before. Involving outside parties in your personal scuffles is usually grounds for a tongue lashing. It really makes you wonder if it could have possibly been worth it.
Well, even if he got the lashing of his life, the internet sure seemed to enjoy it a lot. So, for providing entertainment for the entire internet and making tons of people smile, we thank you brave soul.
Vicente Fox, the 74-year-old former president of Mexico has discovered a new pastime in his decade of retirement: trolling President Trump almost daily on Twitter. Fox’s relentless mocking of and even sometimes cursing at the U.S. Leader has caused quite a stir on the social media site. But according to the former Mexican president, it is his calling to take the president down because as he says, “that dude is a pendejo”.
“I understood Hitler, I understood Napoleon, I understand a lot of very violent ones. This one I don’t understand,” he told BuzzFeed News via telephone prior to Trump’s inauguration.
On Twitter, Fox’s timeline is full of jabs, pokes and rants at the U.S. leader. Contradicting and making fun of the president extends to real life too. Fox is famously quoted as telling a journalist, “I’m not gonna pay for that fucking wall”.
In Latin America people have felt especially insulted by the president, and Fox has been one of his most vocal critics. Fox’s mission for the past year has included some pretty colorful adjectives to describe Trump. The Twitter nemesis has even tweeted that the U.S. president is barred from Cancun where he was celebrating his wife’s birthday.
But Fox may be simply manipulating the populace, currently angry with President Enrique Peña Nieto for paying nice with Trump after his rude remarks towards Mexicans.
Trump’s Mexican Twitter enemy isn’t the only one throwing him shade. Current president Peña Nieto likened the president-elect to Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini last year. And Oscar Arias, former president of Costa Rica, said that Trump reminded him of Nicaraguan dictator Daniel Ortega. But Fox is the only one doing it with this level of gusto. At every step of the way, Fox is reaching for his phone.
Donald Trump has been caught in a number of lies since his campaign, and even today he’s still being caught up in them. But Trump’s latest campaign manager turned Counselor to the President, Kellyanne Conway, had an interesting way to defend his statements when she made a recent TV appearance on CNN’s Reliable Sources. She said Trump’s lies aren’t lies at all, they’re just “alternative facts.” What?
Her comments were in response to claims from White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer that the inauguration attracted the biggest audience ever. That claim was immediately debunked by simple pictures showing the Obama inauguration crowd versus Trump’s. Some normal people might then call that a “lie” or a “fib.”
Needless to say, the internet decided to run with this, spewing out a bunch of hilarious alternative facts memes.
Additionally, some savvy readers have drawn lines between this alternative facts phenomenon and certain interesting passages written by George Orwell in the novel “1984.” Particularly coming up often is the Orwellian term “doublethink,” which refers to holding two contradictory thoughts in your mind at once and simultaneously accepting both of them. That sounds an awful lot like alternative facts, does it not?
Memes of these Orwellian quotes have also been popping up online, and sales of the classic novel have skyrocketed in the process.
Well, even the harshest critics of Donald Trump now have to acknowledge that he’s done some good for the people of the United States. He’s got them reading important pieces of literature once again. Remember kids, knowledge is power.
A new clinical trial into using stem cell transplants to treat multiple sclerosis has shown great promise in inducing long-term remissions among patients. Five years after receiving therapy 69& of patients are still experiencing no progression in the disease or relapses. Even more remarkable is that the patients have not received any other medications for the disease after receiving therapy. The trial was co-sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The findings of the trial indicate that this may be a substantially more effective treatment than current drugs for treating MS.

America’s best-selling party game Cards Against Humanity is hiring a new CEO via Craigslist, and it’s clear they’re looking for Obama to fill the position. The Craigslist ad, posted two days after President Trump’s inauguration, says Cards Against Humanity is in need of a new CEO because “Let’s face it: we have no idea what we’re doing.”
The tongue-in-cheek Craigslist ad looks like a fabulous potential job opportunity at first glance. Then, as readers scroll through the job requirements and see that the ideal candidate will “be a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize” and have at least “eight years’ experience as President of the United States of America,” potential candidates realize that the only person qualified for the job is former president Obama.
Cards Against Humanity admits that the company spent a huge amount of its time in 2016 doing seemingly pointless tasks, such as trying to get Hillary Clinton elected and digging a big hole in the ground on Black Friday. Thus, the company could only benefit from Obama’s leadership as CEO. Now that he is no longer President, perhaps Obama will consider the job and get the country’s favorite party game back on task.
Based in Chicago, Obama’s hometown, Cards Against Humanity has more than two dozen employees and offers health insurance benefits while supplies last. Other perks of working at Cards Against Humanity include access to unlimited amounts of almonds via the office’s snack pantry and a new computer. The job requires proficiency in Microsoft Office and experience hunting terrorist masterminds, according to the Craigslist ad.
The jury is still out on whether or not Obama, like a majority of unemployed people in America, uses Craigslist in his search for meaningful employment. If not, here’s hoping he sees the job ad on the front page of reddit.
