WTFckery or Not? You Decide
Welcome to this week’s twisted WTFckery!
1. Some WTF books for you to cringe at:
Synopsis: Her step dad was only supposed to breed her mare, but things got crazy hot when the 18-year-old found out that Daddy was hung like she’d always wanted.
3. I love going to IKEA but I’m not sure if I would have my wedding there. I guess the cafe there catered the event? All you can eat IKEA Swedish meatballs for the wedding guests! From Huff Po:
“Eight years ago, Shirley Stewart and Berkeley “Rashid” Smith met in the frame department of a New Jersey IKEA. And on Saturday, that’s exactly where they tied the knot. Stewart told the New Jersey Star-Ledger Sunday that she and her then-14-year-old daughter, Jashirele, were shopping in IKEA one day in 2005 when they spotted Smith. That was the beginning of an eight-year romance, and Stewart and Smith always said if they got married, they would want to do it in the exact spot they met. So they said their vows while their friends, family and fellow IKEA shoppers looked on.
IKEA is a more popular wedding venue than you might think. A Maryland IKEA was the site of a wedding in 2012 — the couple had their first date there two years earlier. And an Australian couple actually won the opportunity to get married in an IKEA last year.”
4. Would you have more money taken out of your paycheck for more vacation time? From The Consumerist:
“If you’ve got the cash to spare but are running low on days off, some employers will let employees buy — and others, sell — vacation days.
It sort of sounds simply like taking unpaid vacation days, but according to the Associated Press, there are companies with somewhat more complicated vacation day markets, as it were.
As a way for workers to have more flexibility in managing their time off, a survey by the Society for Human Resource Management says that 9% of employers will allow workers to cash out their unused vacation time. Some of those companies use a donation pool full of unused vacation time that can then either be simply used by other workers, or purchased.”
5. Dogs sticking their heads out of car windows at warp speed. From Io9:
“If you think your dog loves sticking his or her head out the window as you drive, just imagine if you were driving… in space. That’s the theory behind Warp Dogs, an amazing set of illustrations by Benjamin Grelle, aka the Frogman.
As Complex notes:
As multiple dogs have their hair flying back and lips forced open by the wind, they seem like they are warping through multiple dimensions as streaks and swirls of color are added to the backdrop. Although we may never know, it is possible that the dogs actually do have this kind of experience. As their thoughts, vision, and other senses are stimulated by the speed of a car, they may experience an individual journey through time and space.”
6. I shouldn’t find this story funny, but a nightly visit by a rat popping up in a toilet is pretty ha-ha (as long as your not busy doing your business as the friendly rat decides to say, hello. There’s even a video on the website of the nightly visitor as proof. From the Sutton Guardian:
“The last thing you want is a large rat coming up your toilet when you go to the bathroom – but one family has been putting up with it for nine months. Mrs Woods, an office manager, received a panicked phone call from her daughter, who was pregnant at the time, telling her that a rat had escaped out of the toilet and into the bathroom until her son managed to get rid of it. Since then a rat, which the family have named Roland, has been popping his head out most nights much to the horror of the Woods family.”
7. Actually, the waffle taco filled with fruit sounds tasty. From The Consumerist:
“Word on the street is that Taco Bell is also testing different fillings for the folded breakfast treat. The new offerings include a waffle filled with whipped cream and fruit, and a waffle with a piece of fried chicken in it. The original breakfast taco, which is pretty much just a waffle folded in half with a sausage in it, is only available for breakfast.”
8. Emo cupcake is emo. From Cakewrecks:
9. The name of this product is a WTFckery within itself. Say hello to Shittens: disposable, mitten-shaped moist wipes!
“If there’s one great universal truth that we can all agree on, it’s this: No one wants poop on their hands.
And yet, we laugh carelessly in the face of danger every time we take an old fashioned wet wipe to our heinies, flying completely blind in the critical poop-to-hand spatial relation.
How many times have you taken one of those substandard wet wipes to the posterior of a child, risking major contamination from that flailing poop cloth? And how many times has your dog’s “number two” been a little closer to a number one “and a half”, requiring a deadly grab & pull maneuver with whatever’s laying around? Enough is enough!
With new Shittens, you can fully protect your hands while tending to the dirty deed.”
The trailer for Shittens is pretty catchy:
10. And your final WTFckery had me fooled big time because I failed to check the date of the article. Would you fly in a glass-bottomed plane given the chance? From Virgin:
“Virgin has created another world-first with the introduction of the technology required to produce the world’s first glass-bottomed plane. This technological innovation coincides with the start of Virgin Atlantic Airways’ first ever domestic service to Scotland. 2012 was a year of celebrating what is brilliant about Great Britain and I’m excited that in 2013 we are continuing this uplifting spirit by developing an experience that will enable Little Red passengers to appreciate the beauty of the British landscape. And with an unrivaled view of Scotland I hope this gives Scottish tourism an even bigger boost.”
I hope you have enjoyed this week’s greatest in WTFckery!
