    Is this the most racist ad ever? Chinese detergent commercial sparks outrage

    A black man and a young Chinese woman are flirting, as he leans in for a kiss she thrusts a detergent capsule in his mouth and bundles him into a laundry machine. She sits atop the machine as the man spins and screams inside until, to her apparent delight, out pops a handsome Chinese man dressed in a clean, white t-shirt.

    Woman caught trying to smuggle meth-filled burritos across the border

    TUSCON, Ariz. — There’s no end to the industriousness of drug smugglers. They’ve tried to smuggle in pot in fake carrots. They’ve tried a drone to drop heroin into a prison yard. This week, border agents in Tucson, Arizona, said they busted a woman trying to sneak in a pound of meth disguised as burritos. The operative word here is “disguised.” Because clearly the smuggler didn’t put much thought into it. No fixings to blanket it in. Not even an […]

    Could a debate between presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders be in the works? Trump says he’d “love to.” Sanders? “Game on.” Appearing on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Wednesday night, Trump said he would be willing to spar with Sanders in lieu of likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, joking, “How much is he going to pay me?” “If I debated him, we should have such high ratings, and I think I should give — take that […]

    American Airlines waives man’s $200 change fee after witty letter

    The next time an airline hits you with a fee, you can either go on a epic rant about “Big” Business and their “evil” ways. Or you can do what Alex Hamberger did. He took the honey over the vinegar approach and look where it got him. Back in March, a sudden illness forced Hamberger of Buffalo, New York, to cancel a flight to see his 9-month-old niece in Kansas City. He had to rebook, and we all know what […]
