NASCAR has announced that on May 9th, the Kansas Speedway will host the SpongeBob SquarePants 400! According to a press release, the race track will feature SpongeBob themed activities throughout the weekend, including costumed characters interacting with fans. Perhaps the drivers will allow SpongeBob to get behind the wheel of a car, although he is a notoriously poor driver. (Just ask his driving instructor, Mrs. Puff.) ~Rowdy
Police in New York are on the hunt for a man with a receding hairline who walked into a drug store and left with more than $800 worth of Rogaine.

The theft occurred on January 31st, and police are offering a $5000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

In a recent interview, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour revealed her secrets to success – which included getting fired at least once in your employment career. According to Wintour, "getting sacked" teaches a person that "perfection doesn't exist," and you should fake confidence in your work as much as you can. Just Asking ... •Have you ever been fired? What was the job and what was the reason? Are you embarrassed or do you think it helped you in the long run? It has only happened to me once-and it was a 'side job' but it was good paying one., It still stings. ~Rowdy
I got to be the guest ringmaster at the Akdar Shrine Circus on Saturday. My daughter and I had a great time watching all the amazing acts. Our favorite was the tigers! Did you go? The bad weather kept some of you away. Looking forward to next year!
So we’ve all seen that “What color is this dress?” meme – there was no escaping it. But it’s not white or gold or blue or black … the real color of this dress is green. That’s because ever since it appeared on everyone’s newsfeed on Thursday, sales of the actual dress – which is blue and black, by the way – have skyrocketed. According to Roman Originals, the company that makes the dress, sales are up 350%. Ching! -the Internet, got to love it. ~Rowdy
Earlier this week, an unemployed man vented on Reddit about his parents. He claimed that he had been “bought off” by his parents and given $250,000 to leave the house – and never come back or speak to them again. He wrote: “I’ve been 'bought off' by my parents. They told me I am no longer welcome to live with them, and I guess in some sort of twisted way of not feeling bad about it, they are giving me $250,000 to not contact them ever again. “I don’t know anything about investments, and I’m unemployed (but actively looking for a job – I have an economics degree from a decent university) and I want to know how to best manage that money so I don’t lose it and I get some return on it for the future.” -this is the kind of "conditional" love I've been looking for my whole life. I'm gonna go call my Mommy now. ~Rowdy
