- *Tinder Select is actually $499
- What do you get for that fee? New features, like one described as "VIP search, matching and conversation".

❾ Wienermobile Rides Again!
- Four months ago, the folks at Oscar Mayer changed the name of their hot dog fleet of cars from Wienermobiles to Frankmobiles.
- Now, those wiener vehicles will be called Wienermobiles again.
- Was it a publicity stunt name-change, or a sincere attempt to switch the name of your rolling wieners, that just didn't take? 
- Did a petition by fans of giant, motorized wieners make the difference?
- We're left with some questions, but if you're a fan of the traditional name, you don't care do you? You got the rolling wiener car back!
❽ Dogs Go To Human Movie, World Reacts...
- Paramount Pictures, along with an animal well-being charity invited dogs and their families to an outdoor showing of Paw Patrol: The Mighty Movie... 219 pooches brought their families to the showing and that is a world record for dogs-watching-a-movie.

- Official record is "Most dogs attending a film screening."
- Are the dogs OK with being part of a publicity stunt for Hollywood? Almost all of them didn't care.

- SpongeBob Mac and Cheese was officially discontinued in 2019, but then they teased us with limited edition SpongeBob boxes in 2020...

❶ Lady Stuck in Toilet Makes News, Retrieves Watch!
- happened in Michigan where Police responded to a call of "|Lady trapped in Outhouse" *paraphrase
- So... picture a portapotty... except this is a permanent outhouse like they might have at a campground or a park, maybe at a ball field...
- the lady somehow dropped her Apple Watch down in there... those things are expensive... so she decided to go after it...
- people called the cops when they heard a lady calling for help... the sound seemed to be coming from the vicinity of the toilet... 
- Rescuers removed the toilet then were able to hoist the woman up from the bowels of the earth/ containment area, back to solid ground...
- authorities warn that if you ever drop your Smart Watch, Phone, or other, down an outhouse, do not attempt to retrieve it from the containment because it is dangerous...
- This lady seemed to escape the incident without serious injury... but my Sweet Lord that is a doozy of a story!
- BTW, the lady got her watch back, so that's nice for her...
