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!

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.

Mount Rushmore’s Mysterious Hidden Room

(PCM) The Presidential faces carved into the surface of Mount Rushmore in South Dakota is one of the most recognizable landmark monuments in the United States, but did you know that they contain a bit of mystery as well? There happens to be a hidden room located just behind Abraham Lincoln’s hairline that was planned to be a place where a person could visit and learn everything they needed to know about the history of the mountain, the United States government and more! At one point it was even supposed to house historical documents such as the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The creation of Mount Rushmore took about 14 years of planning and sculpting by artist Gutzon Borglum, however he feared that once the monument was completed it would later be shrouded in mystery without some sort of explanation as to why the four Presidents depicted for the monument,George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln,  were so influential and chosen to be displayed on the mountainside by the artist.

In an effort to educate visitors about the history of the monument, Borglum planned to include a massive room that he would call the Hall Of Records and have it’s location be a direct part of the monument itself. In 1938, Borglum and his team began blasting away an area that was supposed to become the Hall Of Records, however that work was never completed when funding for the project was shut-down in 1941 when Borglum passed away and the South Dakota government officials declared the project completed.

What ended up being completed was an 18 foot doorway that led to a 75 foot by 35 foot tall room. There is still red paint on the walls that was placed to instruct workers on where to blast and multiple holes from floor to ceiling where dynamite was supposed to be placed. The room is still in place in it’s current condition and is inaccessible to tourists looking to take a peek.

Years later Borglum’s family petitioned the government to complete the room and honor his memory. In 1998, the government agreed and multiple porcelain plaques were laid in the ground at the site of the room that explained the mountains history and Borglum’s artistic vision. It reads:

“I want, somewhere in America, on or near the Rockies, the backbone of the Continent, so far removed from succeeding, selfish, coveting civilizations, a few feet of stone that bears witness, carries the likeness, the dates, a word or two of the great things we accomplished as a Nation, placed so high it won’t pay to pull them down for lesser purposes.

Hence, let us place there, carved high, as close to heaven as we can, the words of our leaders, their faces, to show posterity what manner of men they were. Then breathe a prayer that these records will endure until the wind and rain alone shall wear them away.”

The Hall of Records has since been sealed, but also enclosed are tablets that contain the story of our nation.  According to NationalParksTraveler.com, sixteen porcelain enamel panels containing the text from the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, along with a biography of Borglum, and the story of the presidents, were sealed in a teakwood box, then placed in a titanium vault, and finally sealed shut under the weight of a 1,200 pound granite capstone inside the unfinished hall.

These artifacts are meant to be buried for thousands of years and when eventually unearthed instruct future civilizations about the history of the United States.

Adult Swaddling Is A New Trend

(PCM) Much the same as newborn baby swaddling, adult swaddling is quickly becoming a growing trend among new mothers in Tokyo, Japan. Somehow we think it is only a matter of time before this trend hits the U.S. and it definitely borders on the bizarre.

New Japanese mothers are wrapping themselves from head to toe in a large white bag and allowing themselves to be rocked from side to side as a way to combat many of their post-pregnancy aches and pains. Swaddle therapists claim that adult swaddling has many health and wellness benefits including both emotional and physical healing. The swaddling is said to help with both shoulder and hip pain associated with giving birth.

The adult swaddling or “adult wrapping” was an idea birthed by a Kyoto mid-wife who assumed that new mothers who were swaddled in the same fashion as their newborn babies could be relieved of their aches and pains. Several mothers who recently participated in an adult swaddling session were seen lying on their backs with their knees held tightly to their chest while wrapped up tightly in white cloths with therapist rocking them back and forth over large pillows set up on the floor.

Many of the women were pleased with the way their bodies felt after the session, as they said it felt very warm and comforting. Many also claimed it was hard to describe the sensation with a particular word. Advocates of the practice claim it can also help people suffering from asthma to breath easier and can be looked at as a form of reflexology and exercise. Other disagree with the practice and say that new mothers experiencing any type of back pain should go see a physician to be sure that there is not a larger issue at hand.

Either way, seeing a bunch of women swaddled up rocking back and forth on the floor is definitely a bit odd, however isn’t cuddle therapy a thing? We can’t really see how this is very different than any other type of alternative health therapy.
