Is Owning a Cat the Hot New Trend For Men?

 If there was ever a stigma around men having CATS as pets, I guess it’s gone now . . . because apparently, guys can’t get enough.

According to a new survey, 17% of men now own a cat.  Just a year ago, only 13% owned cats . . . so that’s a pretty big jump.

One guy in the survey explained why he made the switch from a dog to a cat.

Quote, “Cats don’t need the attention a dog does, but when it gives you attention, it’s not false.  They select who they want to be with.”

The Foods at the Texas State Fair This Year Include Deep Fried Froot Loops . . . Oreo Beer . . . and Something Called “Fat Smooth”

The Texas State Fair is famous for being the birthplace of some of the most INSANE food creations in the world.  And they just released the list of some of the new things that will be on sale when it opens on September 29th.


Unfortunately, they just released the names and didn’t release descriptions of what these things actually ARE, so in a lot of cases, we have to use our imaginations.  But just on name alone, here are some of the amazing options . . .

1.  Beer battered beef jerky.

2.  Fried Texas dirt.  We assume “dirt” means, like, crushed up Oreos.

3.  Deep fried breakfast cupcake.

4.  Funnel cake bacon queso burger.

5.  Deep fried chicken noodle soup on a stick.

6.  Deep fried Froot Loops.

7.  Oreo beer.

8.  Tamale donuts.

9.  Fried redneck wedding cake balls.

10.  Fat smooth.  Yes, it’s just called “Fat Smooth.”

We’re not positive what that last one’s going to be, but the people behind the Texas State Fair were asked for clarification, and this was the reply . . .

“Fat Smooth is three delicious Belgium mini cream puffs on a skewer, dipped in a Café Du Monde beignet batter. Fried until golden brown, then dusted in powdered sugar and drizzled with a chocolate and caramel sauce.”

Blowing Out Birthday Candles Leads to a 1,500% Increase in Bacteria on a Cake

See, THIS is why people are rebelling against things like “science” and “facts.”  Because they ruin EVERYTHING.

A new study out of Clemson University found that when someone blows out the candles on a birthday cake, it increases the amount of bacteria on the cake by an average of 1,500%.  And in some cases, the amount of bacteria can increase 14,000%.

Now . . . even with all that extra bacteria, the researchers say your chances of getting sick are still pretty low.  But if the person celebrating their birthday is a little sick, it’s probably best NOT to have them blow out their candles.
