Are These the Five Best Places to Eat at a Shopping Mall Food Court? ranked the best places at shopping mall food courts . . . and gave the top spot to PANDA EXPRESS.  Which is kind of lame, because they’re not really a food court restaurant anymore.  Here are their top five . . .

1.  Panda Express.  They were only in malls at first.  They opened their first stand-alone restaurant in 1997.  Now only 2% of their restaurants are in food courts.

2.  Auntie Anne’s Pretzels.  Wetzel’s Pretzels didn’t make the list.

3.  Sbarro.  Their argument for that one is you can order anything and it’s all delicious.  The counterargument would be . . . no it’s not.

4.  Dippin’ Dots.

5.  Cinnabon.  No argument on that one.

A few more that made the top ten are Orange Julius at #6 . . . the teriyaki place Sarku Japan at #7 . . . and Great American Cookies at #9.

A few that probably COULD have made the list are Chick-fil-A, which started out as a food court restaurant . . . things like Subway and McDonald’s, because they’re at so many malls . . . and Chipotle, which still has a lot of food court locations.

One more is Hot Dog on a Stick, which at least deserved an honorable mention just for those stupid hats the employees have to wear.



A Woman Swallowed $7,000 to Hide It from Her Husband

  Once you’re married, you’ve gotta get on the same page about spending.  Otherwise you’re in for a lot of pain and suffering . . .

A 30-year-old woman in Colombia recently got into a fight with her husband over money . . . and ended up EATING $7,000 in cash to hide it from him.  (???)

It’s not clear why she thought ingesting the money was her only option, but it was described as a, quote, “act of desperation.”  The bills were rolled up, and that’s how she choked them down.  They weren’t wrapped in anything though.

Apparently she was saving it for a big vacation, and got the money by selling a bunch of their ELECTRONICS.  Which might be why the husband wasn’t happy about it.

Surgeons removed fifty-seven $100 bills from her stomach and intestines.  So that’s $5,700 they got back.  And the good news is it looks like it’s all still usable.

Her doctors couldn’t get the rest of it, so she had to pass it.  It’s not clear if THAT cash is still usable.


Does Your Office Have Someone Who Always Rats People Out For Breaking Rules?

  We all SHOULD be totally honest at work . . . never take a slightly longer lunch, steal a pen, fake a sick day, or mess around on Facebook when we’re on the clock.

But you know what’s WORSE than doing any of that?  That person in the office who will immediately RAT YOU OUT when you do.

According to a new survey, 58% of people say they’ve worked with someone who takes on the self-appointed role of tattling on their coworkers whenever they do anything wrong.

And 18% of us are currently working with one.

Now . . . I’m not saying people SHOULD get away with cheating their companies.  But when it comes to the tiny, insignificant stuff?  Then you’re not helping the company, you’re just trying to make yourself look better at the expense of your coworkers.
