Man Vows To Eat A Photograph Of Jason Segel’s Face Everyday!

(PCM) No one really knows why a Canadian man by the name of Noah Maloney has vowed to chow down on a photograph of actor Jason Segel face each and every day, but he claims he will continue to do so until Segel agrees to eat a photo of Maloney’s face.

Yes, we know this is weird!

Maloney has already racked up over 477,000 views on YouTube, however he has yet to explain to anyone just why he is insistent that Segel snack on his face. He is probably just hoping for his fifteen minutes in the viral spotlight and it appears that he is succeeding thus far.

Maloney sent several tweets to Jason Segel revealing his plans and challenging the actor to participate. There has yet to be any response for Segel or his team. Sorry Maloney, looks like you might just being having dinner for one!

Scientists Claim We Could See A Return Of Woolly Mammoths In The Next Ten Years

(PCM) For many years researchers and scientists have been attempting to find a way to bring back the mysterious and extinct Woolly Mammoth and they now claim to be closer than ever to making that goal a reality. In fact, scientists are now saying that we could once again see a hybrid species of the great Woolly Mammoth once again roaming the earth within the next ten years.

Scientists at Harvard have been working diligently over the last few years with a gene-editing program called Crispr to combine the DNA of an elephant with that of an extinct Woolly Mammoth. The new creature would be called a “mammophant”, which would be an elephant that features a good number of Woolly Mammoth traits such as long shaggy hair and the ability to exist in sub-zero temperatures, as well as, have specially adapted blood.

The process of “de-extinction” is quite controversial, as many feel that nature has already taken it’s course and animals should not be “brought back” so to say, however advocates of the process feel that we should explore the technology and possibly get some answers to exactly what may have happened to these majestic creatures in the first place. There has always been some debate over just why Woolly Mammoths became extinct in the first place, with some believing that humans evolution played a big role and others feel it was strictly environmental factors.

The scientists began the project to resurrect the Woolly Mammoth back in 2015 after a fully preserved Woolly Mammoth carcass was discovered frozen in a Siberian tundra. The scientists were able to obtain some of the Woolly Mammoths DNA and continuously add to it to bring this creature back to life. The team is hoping to grow an embryo in an artificial womb and are confident they should be able to complete that task within the next ten years.

It is a concern of some that the Woolly Mammoth is not fit to survive in today’s climate conditions or would not be accepted by a herd of elephants in the wild, however the Harvard team feels that it is important to give this animal hybrid a fighting chance. What do you think? Should we bring back the Woolly Mammoth or just leave well enough alone?

See You Next Wednesday

(aMyth) “See you next Wednesday” was first heard in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Oddyssy. It was said to the astronaut, Frank Poole, by his wife and father, right before Hal killed everybody off. Frank was long gone by that referenced Wednesday.

SYNW2001John Landis claims he originally had the movie idea as a fifteen year old, in 1965, but the film has never actually been made. He has said that he purposely referenced his unmade film, “See You Next Wednesday” several times in his feature films. Based on the hints and posters, it may be a sci-fi adventure, a giant ape flick, a romance or an adult sex feature. Most of the film references were in his films, but they are not limited to John Landis production.

SYNW-BarbarellaWe have listed the references we’ve found so far below.

► The phrase was said several times in his first film, Shlock (1971)

► Hugh Grant says “See You Next Wednesday” quite pointedly as he ushers somebody into a car, in the movie About A Boy.

► It was a poster the theater that Michael Jackson and Ola Ray were leaving at the original start of the Thriller music video (1983). Jackson’s  music video Black or White (1991) SYNW is shown on the window which Michael Jackson throws a garbage can through, the window is that of a company named “See You Next Wednesday Storage Co.”

► In the Doctor Who 2013 episode Nightmare in Silver, written by Neil Gaiman, the Doctor’s companion Clara Oswald uses the phrase as a goodbye late in the episode.

► In the video game NetHack, the phrase “See you next Wednesday” appears as graffiti on the floor.

► It was the supposed porn film playing in the theater scene in An American Werewolf in London (1981)

► In The Blues Brothers (1980), it was used as a billboard (pictured above) behind which some police were waiting

► In The Twilight Zone Movie (1983), it was said, in German, by some soldiers in the Vic Morrow WW 2 scene, on the same film, the “scared American G.I.’s” were scared because they had killed Lieutenant Neidermeyer.

► Animal House (1978) fans will recall that we found out that Doug Neidermeyer was “killed in Vietnam by his own troops” in the closing credits. I love it when a story comes full circle!

► In The Stupids (1996), the phrase is seen on the back of the bus to which the kids chain their bikes.

► It was seen several times as a subway poster, including Coming To America (1988), and Amazon Women on the Moon (1987). It was also seen as a poster in Jamie Lee Curtis’s apartment in Trading Places (1983)► Speaking of Jamie Lee, she was actually mentioned in the Coming To America SYNW subway poster, while starring in the film!

► In Innocent Blood (1992), SYNW is shown on a marquee.

► Also found in the Landis film, Spies Like Us Poster on the wall near the beginning when Chase and Akroyd go to the Army office.

► It was also a feature-within-a-feaure in The Kentucky Fried Movie (1977).AmericanWW

► In the first episode of the 1990 TV series Dream On (which Landis directed), Martin (Brian Benben) says to his maid (Marianne Muellerleile), “See you next Thursday”. She corrects him saying, “Wednesday”.

► The video for Michael Bublé’s song Hollywood features a cinema showing See You Next Wednesday.

► There is an episode of Scrubs episode where JD, Dr. Cox, the resident and Dr. Kelso go golfing. Cox sinks a putt to win the game, and utters the phrase as he leaves the green.

► In the Masters of Horror episode “Family” (2006), the phrase is spoken by a cartoon character on TV.

► It was the sign off on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee on September 19, 2015wednesdayOn the musical side, The Girl From Ipanema is a favorite of Mr. Landis.

Mr. Landis used the song twice in The Blues Brothers. It was played in the driving-through-the-mall scene as well as the elevator music while the brothers were going up to pay the tax bill for the school.
It is also played, alarmingly loud, in an elevator in Amazon Women on the Moon (1987).

Mystery Orange Alligator Appears In South Carolina

(PCM) No one can seem to explain the appearance of a mysterious orange colored alligator that has surfaced in a pond near Charleston, South Carolina. Residents that live near the retention pond claim that they have seen the oddly colored alligator numerous times, but there appears to be no solid reasoning behind it’s bright orange color.

The gator is 4 to 5 ft long and the most logical explanation for the alligators orange color comes from Jay Butfiloski with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, who says that the alligator may have turned orange in color due to spending the winter in a rusty steel culvert pipe. What is odd is that some of the rust did not wash off the alligator after it’s time spent in the fresh water.

Experts claim that the alligator is due to shed it’s skin soon, so perhaps then it will return to its’ normal coloring, but until then it is definitely a bright sight to see!  Many residents joke that the alligator used too much tanning oil over the summer!

Someone Paid Nearly $100,000 For A Harambe Shaped Cheeto!

(PCM) We seriously find this hard to believe, however it appears that someone has paid nearly $100,000 for a Cheeto that just so happens to be shaped like Harambe the deceased gorilla! A seller by the name of valuestampsinc discovered that one of their Flaming Hot Cheetos bore a striking resemblance to Harambe and decided to place the rare find on Ebay. The auction began at a mere $11.99 and after 132 bids it ended up selling at $99,900.oo.

The listing read as follows:

I opened up a bag of Flamin Hot Cheetos and as soon as I looked inside I came across this unique Cheetos that looks like Harambe the gorilla.

This item is one of a kind!

It measures up to about 1 1/2 inches in length.

This item up for bid is only for this unique Cheetos, bag not included.
This makes a great collectible for anyone who appreciates rare items!

Unbelievable! We can’t believe that someone would have the kind of money just laying around and be willing to drop it all on a Cheeto!  A simple search on Ebay also revealed that other have posted their Cheeto finds that resemble Harambe as well with other auctions going as high as $10,000 and other as low as $0.99.  Would you ever pay that kind of money for a one of a kind item?  While it is definitely a rare find, we somehow don’t feel a Cheeto is worth nearly $100 grand, but to each their own!

Ben & Jerry’s Has An Actual Graveyard For Retired And Failed Flavors

(PCM) If you have ever paid a visit to the popular Vermont ice cream company, Ben & Jerry’s, website then you may have noticed that they feature a “Flavor Graveyard” on the site that pays homage to the companies many retired and failed flavors from over the years. However, did you know that there is actually a real-life flavor graveyard located at the Ben & Jerry’s factory located in Waterbury, Vermont that you can walk through as well. It is delightfully bizarre!

The flavor graveyard is situated on a hill that overlooks the factory and features granite headstones and witty epitaphs for each dearly departed flavor. According to Ben & Jerry’s website, the physical Flavor Graveyard was erected in 1997 and originally contained just 4 flavors, which only existed in the United States: Dastardly Mash, Economic Crunch, Ethan Almond and Tuskegee Chunk. Since then, the Graveyard has grown to include 35 flavors, including Wavy Gravy, Miz Jelena’s Sweet Potato Pie, Dublin Mudslide, Holy Cannoli and many more (mostly) beloved departed flavors .

You may wonder just what is buried underneath the headstones in the Flavor Graveyard. It seems that the folks at Ben & Jerry’s began have a mini funeral service for their departed flavors and a little wooden box containing a pint of the deceased ice cream flavor is placed in the ground. Some of the dearly departed flavors are described as :

1. Schweddy Balls (2011-2011) This ice cream with a name inspired by a famous Saturday Night Live sketch featured vanilla ice cream with a bit of rum, plus fudge-covered rum and malt balls.
2. Wavy Gravy (1991-2001) This caramel and cashew Brazil nut flavor stayed on shelves for eight years. The flavor also featured roasted almonds and a chocolate hazelnut fudge swirl. However, Ben & Jerry’s flavor graveyard claims, “Wavy Gravy isn’t dead – he lives in California.”
3. Oh Pear (1997-1997) This short-lived flavor featured an unusual combination flavors: pear ice cream with a tough of almond and a light fudge swirl throughout.
4. Dastardly Mash (1979-1991) This chocolate ice cream with pecans, almonds, chocolate chips, and raisins had a long run. Ben & Jerry’s flavor graveyeard attributes its downfall to raisins. “Here the brazen DASTARDLY lies,” it reads, “some say that raisin, caused its demise.”
5. Tuskeegee Chunk (1989-1990) This ice cream seems like it would have been popular — it was simply peanut butter ice cream with chocolate chunks throughout — yet it only stayed on shelves for a year.
