Today I'm playing catch-up (ketchup?) after taking a few weeks off before season 3.
See how many of these weirdos slipped through the cracks #crackslippers

10 KFC Hotel with Chicken Button (https://nypost.com/2021/08/06/kfc-opening-pop-up-hotel-with-press-for-chicken-buttons/) This is one of those "Big Brand needs to get attention somehow" stories. They came up with a hotel where you can press a button to receive chicken. How did no one think of this before?

8 Big Mac World Record!!!!! (https://www.upi.com/Odd_News/2021/08/06/Guinness-World-Records-Don-Gorske-Big-Macs/7981628274420/) When asked for comment, the man who has eaten more than 32000 Big Macs said: "Wait, they have salads here?!"

(https://www.news5cleveland.com/news/local-news/oh-lorain/waste-collection-agency-finds-25-000-lorain-county-family-accidentally-threw-away) Now that money smells bad, but they'll get over it.

5 The Willy Wonka Hotel is gonna have wallpaper you lick (https://nerdist.com/article/willy-wonka-themed-hotel-room/) Hard pass.

4 The guy who stole the horse and tried to hide it in his bedroom... (https://www.newser.com/story/309855/man-arrested-after-deputies-find-horse-in-house.html) This is a bunk bed situation.

3 New study: your metabolism isn't slowing down like you think it is... (https://nypost.com/2021/08/13/metabolism-doesnt-slow-down-in-middle-age-shocking-study/) I need to find something else to blame my dad bod on.

2 The Budweiser Backyard Barbecue candle smells like clove, lemonade, barbecue smoke, allspice, barley, vanilla, and musk.
