Remember To Never Give A Monkey The Finger!

Monkey2

(PCM) Those of us who are old enough, and perhaps some who shouldn’t be old enough, are aware of just what giving someone the finger actually means. While it is certainly not polite to give a person the finger apparently monkeys are just as offended by the gesture. 

For unknown reasons, a man in Shimla, India approached a monkey and proceeded to flip it off. Well, it seems the monkey was having none of that foolishness and fought back, taking the man down with a double drop kick! 

Go monkey!

The man was not seriously injured, but we certainly hope he learned his lesson about flipping off monkeys anytime in the future!

Fossilized Dinosaur Eggs Discovered In China

Dinosaur-egg2

(PCM) No, this is not some kind of viral teaser for the upcoming film “Jurrassic World“!  Construction workers in China have actually stumbled upon 43 fossilized dinosaur eggs, 19 of which were still completely intact. 

The workers were in the process of completing a road upgrade project in the city of Heyuan when the discovery was made. Heyuan is often referred to as “Home of Dinosaurs” because the city holds the record for having the largest number of dinosaur eggs found in one area. Back in 2004 that number was around 10,008, but now it has grown by thousands more. 

Guess, it is safe to say we have learned where many dinosaurs may have hung their hats! The recently discovered eggs are very large in size, with one in particular having a diameter of more than five inches. 

The eggs have been sent to a local museum for further research and study and at this time it is not know exactly which species of dinosaur they belong.

Woman Who Posed As Rosie The Riveter Dies At Age 92

Rosie-Riveter1

(PCM) At the mere mention of Norman Rockwell’s iconic 1943 painting “Rosie The Riveter” people immediately have the image in their heads of a woman sporting a blue work shirt with rolled-up sleeves and a bandanna flexing her arm muscles.  Hundreds of variations of the famous painting have been used over the years as nation-wide symbol of women’s independence.

The subject of the original painting was a woman by the name of Mary Doyle Keefe, who has sadly passed away at the age of 92. Her family revealed that Keefe suffered from a brief illness and confirmed her passing in Connecticut.

In a statement the Norman Rockwell museum said “Her image as Rosie the Riveter, which graced a Saturday Evening Post cover in May 1943, “became a symbol for millions of American women who went to work during World War II.”

Keefe was paid the amount of $10 to pose for the painting wearing a blue shirt and loafers. The end result showed her with a rivet gun in her lap, a sandwich in one hand and the words “Mein Kempf” under her feet. According to Keefe, Rockwell liked to paint from photos, so his photographer took several different shots of Keefe in a variety of poses. She doesn’t recall having any type of attitude in particular on her face, but she has since been immortalized in the years that followed.

For the image, Keefe, who was a rather petite 19-year old, was beefed up and given larger biceps, broader shoulders and hand, which Rockwell later apologized for, say he needed to make her “sort of a giant”, however the apology also noted that Rockwell said she was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.

Our sincere condolences go out to Keefe’s family and friends during this difficult time.

Distressed Parrot Calls For Help During House Fire

Parrot2

(PCM) Firefighters in Middleton, Idaho got quite the surprise when responding to a house fire and discovering a parrot call for help from inside the home.  The firefighters approached the blaze like any other by rolling out the hoses and beginning to douse the home in water to battle the blaze. When they shouted in the door “Firefighters, anyone home?”, they were quite startled to receive a reply from inside screeching “Help, fire! Help, fire”. 

The firefighters entered the home to search for anyone who maybe trapped, but saw no one. They then decided to bring out the thermal imaging gear that detects warm bodies. When passing by a table, the firefighter noticed a change in color on the screen and upon second look noticed it was the silhouette of a parrot. 

The firefighters were able to determine that the cries for help were indeed coming from the parrot. They were able to rescue the distressed parrot and another, less vocal parrot as well. The birds were given oxygen and once their lungs were clear the incredibly vocal parrot began squawking again. Hopefully saying a ‘thank you!”.

Woman Wins Texas Food Challenge After Downing 3 72-ounce Steaks

Steak-Challenge1

(PCM) A Texas woman has earned a spot in the Guinness Book Of World Records after completing a Texas food challenge where she was able to consume 3 72-ounce steaks, as well as, three salads, three dinner rolls, three baked potatoes and three shrimp cocktails on the side! 

What makes this even more incredible is that she managed to scarf down all of that food in under 20 minutes. This incredible feat was completed by 24-year old Molly Schuyler, weighing only 124lbs and competing against two teams of four for the win. 

The challenge took place at the Big Texan Steakhouse in Amarillo, Texas and even the owner was shocked by Schuyler’s win. They have been holding the challenge since 1960 and Schuyler’s win marks the first time in over 55 years that someone has been able to successfully complete the challenge. 

Each of the 72-ounce steaks weighs about 4lbs and competing last year Schuyler was only able to finish two of them, so she certainly upped her game going into this year’s challenge. In addition to being submitted for the Guinness Book Of World Records, Schuyler also received a $5,000 prize from the steakhouse.  She says that she is planning on returning next year to compete for a third time!
