A Family’s New Hamster Went Rogue and Destroyed the Inside of Their Car


When your kid wants their first pet, hamsters are a pretty safe choice.  They’re a lot cuter than a fish, and easier than a dog or cat.

But a 43-year-old mom in Wales decided to get a hamster for her kids last Tuesday.  And it turned out to be the hamster from HELL.

After she bought it, it got loose in her car on the way home . . . and she couldn’t find it.  And it’s now spent the last week causing THOUSANDS of dollars of damage to her car’s interior.

Apparently it chewed its way into one of the seats.  So she tried coaxing it out with food all night.  But no dice.  So she had to leave it in there overnight, and it chewed through one of her seatbelts.

She went to a mechanic the next day.  And they weren’t sure what to do either . . . but did find it got into her dash and disabled the passenger’s side airbag.  So then she put eight humane traps in the car to catch it.  But that didn’t work either.

Now it’s been over a week, and she’s getting desperate.  Her latest idea is to put a mop bucket in there with nuts in it, and a little makeshift ladder leading up to the edge.  So hopefully it falls in and can’t get out.

She’s been posting photos on Facebook and asking for advice.  Unless she found it today, she’s now on day eight.


A Woman Tricks Almost 100 Guys on Tinder to Show Up For a Group Date to Compete For Her


Before we get into this story, I just want to say my “THIS IS A VIRAL MARKETING STUNT” alarm is blaring right now.  But anyway, here we go . . .

A woman named Natasha Aponte in New York City pulled off a hell of a dating move on Sunday afternoon.  She set up dates with around 100 guys on Tinder and asked them to meet her at Union Square to hear her friend DJing.

But when the guys got there, they all realized there was no DJ.  And Natasha got up on the stage and announced she brought all the guys there . . . to COMPETE for her.

Some of them left on their own . . . and she told people, like Trump supporters and guys under 5-foot-10, to leave . . . but a few dozen guys took her bait and ran a race and did a push-up contest to win her over.  There’s no word on who she picked.

But that probably wasn’t REALLY the point.  Natasha identifies herself as a, quote, “actress, model, singer” on Instagram, so there’s a decent chance it was a stunt to get famous.

And it was a high budget one . . . she got a permit for the event, rented the stage, and had security and photographers working.  Which makes it all SEEM like it was a viral marketing stunt by someone with money.
