Totally Didn’t Know ‘Tumbleweed Tornadoes’ Were A Thing Until Seeing This Video

Published

There’s a whole new meaning to “going out for a spin.”

I don’t claim to be anything but a city boy. I hate bugs. Can’t stand when it’s hot outside. And up until know I was like fifty percent certain that tumbleweeds only existed in cartoons. Clearly this city boy needs a trip out west because there are some things I’ll just never see while at Whole Foods.

Journalist, Matt M. McKnight, was on a drive in his VW (named Bessie) when he found himself staring straight into a tumbleweed vortex. What’s a tumbleweed vortex, you might wonder? Well, to put it into terms I can understand, it’s like when you’re walking around New York City and a slight gust kicks up some street trash and then swirls it into the air creating a tiny, disgusting tornado… except much bigger, faster moving and with tumbleweeds. The hairy incident occurred in Eastern Washington near the decommissioned Handford nuclear complex and luckily for us McKnight captured the entire thing on film.

An Olympian Swam A Full Pool Lap With A Glass Of Chocolate Milk On Her Head And Everyone’s Impressed

Published

on

Olympic counsel, please consider making this an official sport.

In order to become an Olympic athlete you have to train for years. Push your mind and body to their physical limits. Strive to never give up. And most importantly, learn to balance a glass of chocolate milk on your head. Ok that last one isn’t really necessary for the Olympics but makes for an epic social media post.

Five-time, Olympic gold winner Katie Ledecky took to Instagram to share a video of herself completing an entire pool lap with a glass of chocolate milk balanced on her head. The pro-swimmer used a snorkel to help her breathe as she Nesquick-ly crossed the pool without spilling a single drop! Calling the lap “possibly one of the best swims of [her] career,”  Ledecky shared that the swim was part of the #GotMilkChallenge on TikTok. The challenge’s guidelines are pretty simple: “Got milk? Time to show us what else you got! Step 1: Pour a glass of milk. Step 2: Do something AMAZING–and don’t spill! Step 3: Sip to prove you still ‘got milk’.” I feel bad for whoever tries to follow this stunt.

The 15-time world champion swimmer is no stranger to chocolate milk. Back in 2019, Ledecky partnered with Built by Chocolate Milk and has shared the benefits of the drinking the choccy drink after intense training. As for the swim that has social media buzzing, Ledecky said “I was like freezing in my core so hard because I can’t move, I had to stay so still.” Oh, so that’s what a core is for!

Giant Asparagus Stalk Causes Quite The Stir On Social Media

Published

Who would have asparaguessed?

Over the weekend, photos of a giant asparagus plant began circulating Twitter with many users stunned to learn that the plant can grow to be the size of a small tree. I was one of those users because I’ve never seen an asparagus stem longer than a fork…I’ve never seen a bunch that wasn’t ridiculously overpriced either, might I add. The sad reality is that most of us eat things everyday with absolutely no idea as to how they are  grown and farmed. I can honestly say I was always more preoccupied by the thought of the funny smelling, post-asparagus-eating pee that it never occurred to me that these plants could become overgrown. And overgrown is a bit of an overstatement.

The stem in the picture looks to be over 8 feet tall. My pee would smell funny for a whole year after eating that. The photos have sparked a debate on Twitter with some saying the plants showcased are not asparagus but agave plants instead. While asparagus stems can grow to be about 5 feet tall, agave plants can grow much taller and even bloom flowers. I have zero interest in horticulture but plenty of interest in what’s funny so I just collected a few of the funniest reactions to the asparagus/agave photo here:

‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’ Parodied Dolly Parton To Create A Theme Song For All The ‘Karen’s’ Out There

Published

These “Karens” are workin’ 9 to 5 on our last nerve.

By now you probably know that the term “Karen” is typically reserved for white women who throw tantrums over things that don’t really require tantrum throwing. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the “Karens” have been especially vocal about not wanting to wear a mask usually citing constitutional freedom as the reason. Over the passed few weeks we have seen headlines about these women coughing on pro-maskers, verbally assaulting eye witnesses and even destroying property all to prove the point that they can and will do whatever they want. It’s annoying. Well, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert took the these suburban lemons and turned them into a hilarious pitcher of lemonade with a parody of the Dolly Parton classic “Jolene,” appropriately renamed “Karen.”

The PSA begins with actual news footage covering the stories of anti-maskers before cutting to a vintage clip of Parton in a pink jumpsuit with an anonymous singer belting out the altered lyrics which poke fun at all the angry scene makers. “You go on rants at Trader Joe’s, sit on the ground at the Costco, say wearing masks is the devil’s law,” the unseen singer croons. “Karen, Karen, Karen, Karen, please just wear a mask you big dumbass” she continues to implore.

Like all good satire, the video is hilarious but also contains an important message. The CDC as well as countless medical professionals have all agreed that wearing a mask is the best way to prevent the spread of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Wear a mask! And check out the funny video below!
