The one time Jerry Seinfeld tries to help someone, the cops get called.
In an attempt to raise some fun money for his wife's Baby Buggy family charity, Seinfeld, his son Julian and two of the youngster's friends set up an impromptu lemonade stand in East Hampton last week.
Not everyone in the Hamptons appreciated the philanthropic gesture according to the Huffington Post.
East Hampton Village Police received a complaint on Aug. 18 about illegally parked cars at the stand, The East Hampton Press reported. An officer arrived on the scene and told the comedian that lemonade stands were not permitted on village property, and that he'd have to shut it down. "No Lemonade For You," the newspaper's headline read, referencing the Soup Nazi' character's "No soup for you!" cry on Seinfeld's hugely popular sitcom.
Luckily, Seinfeld and his temporary employees were able to have a little fun with it and posted their reaction to the call on Instagram.
That's a shame.
Who knew PETA wanted to get into the Halloween costuming game?
By this time, you've all most likely heard of Cecil the lion and the American dentist who illegally killed him.
And also, you've maybe heard about the preeeeetty tasteless costume thrown together by costumeish.com so that Halloween revelers can celebrate in style. It looks like this:
The page says it includes "severed lion's head, smock with fake blood splatters, gloves with fake blood splatters, dentist tools in front pocket".
Hilariously, after a big outcry and even bigger petition, the page also says this:
Due to public outlash and petition launched by Doreen Harley and the almost 40,000 signatures along with the opinion of our company we will be donating 100% of the profit from our Lion Killer Costume to a Wildlife Foundation. Our intentions are not to make profit off the beloved Lion. However please remember, if our costume caused an immediate reaction such as disgust or anger to you just imagine how Cecil felt.
But that wasn't enough for PETA, because nothing's ever enough for PETA. The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals put their best, most vegan minds to the job and created a Halloween costume of their own called "Cecil's Revenge Halloween Costume".
Here's a picture of it again.
The product page describes it as such:
Halloween aficionados can turn the table on trophy hunters' ghoulish pastime with this cheeky new limited-edition costume. "Cecil's Revenge" features a dentist's uniform with a "Dr. Palmer" name tag, complete with a plush lion grabbing the dental coat from behind, leaving bloody claw marks. Accessorize with a drill, a toothbrush, or a toy crossbow.
Oh, and it also costs $140.
So just know that come Halloween, you have many options available to you
It's very surprising no one has put together a sexy Cecil the lion costume.
Buzz Aldrin, second man on the moon, has not been quiet about his desire to colonize Mars.
He has talked about it every chance he gets and pretty much only wears the one t-shirt.
Well, he has taken up with the Florida Institute of Technology to make colonization a reality. He signed off with the school on a 'master plan' Aug. 27, which he and the institute hope will provide a clear pathway for the country to get their asses to the red planet sometime in the next few decades.
According to The Guardian:
The 85-year-old Aldrin, who followed Neil Armstrong onto the moon's surface on 20 July 1969, will serve as a research professor of aeronautics as well as a senior faculty adviser for the institute.
He said he hopes his "master plan" is accepted by NASA and the country, with international input. NASA already is working on the spacecraft and rockets to get astronauts to Mars by the mid-2030s.
Aldrin is pushing for a Mars settlement by approximately 2040. More specifically, he's shooting for 2039, the 70th anniversary of his own Apollo 11 moon landing, although he admits the schedule is "adjustable".
One thing's for sure, he's definitely done with that crummy old moon.
Sometimes all it takes to be great is a fantastic idea and a cooperative cat.
Those are the two things definitely on display over at the RuPaw's Drag Race Instagram feed.
The concept is simple — recreate notable outfits from RuPaul's Drag Race on a cat.
The execution is spectacular.
Even Ru herself receives the honor.
The feed itself doesn't give a clue as to what that sweet kitty's name is or who is behind this wonderful thing. It doesn't really matter, because the pictures speak for themselves.
Today is a beautiful day.
