IKEA's Idea

I love going to IKEA to shop for furniture. I don't buy things every time I go, but I do like to look around. It made me sad when I saw this news article about IKEA's proposal to charge 5 cents for each of the disposable bags they give you to carry out your merchandise. I LOVE those bags! They're the perfect bags to line my wastebaskets! BUT, I also believe in recycling and saving the, good job IKEA.

News from NewZ

..ealand. HA. Good one, right?

Here's the story -

There is a cat with polydactyly. No, it doesn't mean that it is a cat with a dinosaur. It means that the cat has more toes than normal. Twenty-six toes, to be exact. Instead of having five toes on each paw, it has seven on each of the two front paws, and six on the back two paws.

And that is animal story #2 for today :)

He's Got Legs...

And knows how to use them!

Once upon a time, a four-legged duck was born in London.
He's awesome...using he extra pair of legs as stabilizers.

The End

Need a new toilet?

Or looking for a gift for that guy who has everything? Even if he doesn't have everything, he may enjoy this. Such a fully functional toilet could make trips to his throne even more enjoyable!

This Fat Kid's Dream Come True...

I LOVE ice cream with chocolate-covered waffle cone pieces.

Dreyer's Waffle Coney Island
Haagen Daaz's Caramel Cone

And now, fresh off of yesterday's press (thanks to my bro for sending me the link)...

Oh, how did he know my favorite flavor?
If you happen to come across this wonderful product, please let me know where I can find it!


For those of you fat kids who are toooooooo lazy to chew...check out the Lava Bar. The Lava Bar is the world's first liquid chocolate bar. It looks like those gels that Power Bar makes, except this is just chocolate.

If you try it, let me know how it tastes. If you were expecting this to be about lava, sorry.

Spanish runways banned models that were too skinny. Now a restaurant in England is taking it a bit further. They are giving free meals away to size zero models (i.e., models with a BMI of less than 18). All they need to do is show their model card and they get their free meal.

What more can people do to make these people eat?!

Handmade Chocolate

While eating a bar of chocolate, a man in Germany found a fingertip (with the fingernail) in his chocolate bar! Apparently, he didn't see it right away because there were nuts in the chocolate.

Gross. I wonder how long he chewed it before he realized that it wasn't a nut.

Don't forget to stop when you see a parked school bus with its lights flashing. A police chief wrote himself a ticket for driving past a stopped school bus to make a point of how important this is. He paid the fine the next day, and also deducted points from his driving record.
