    One Cool Boss

    You probably never heard the name Nevzat Aydin before, but you won’t forget him once you read this. Aydin, the CEO of an online food delivery service in Turkey, recently sold his company to a German company called Delivery Hero … for $589 million. But Aydin didn’t just take the money and run. He handed out bonuses totaling $27 million to his 115 employees. “We did this because if there is a success, we have accomplished it altogether,” said Aydin. Those bonuses amounted to $200,000 per person – that’s a lot of money, especially when you consider that their monthly salaries ranged between $1,000 and $1,800. "There were emotions, because you affect the lives of the people. People can buy homes, cars," Aydın said. Well done, sir. Me? I'd be happy if the boss got my name right. He's been calling me "Rusty" for 4 years now. :) (not really.)

    None For Me Today, Thanks...

    We all scream for ice cream, but some folks near Buffalo screamed a little louder for their ice-cream man -- when he drove through their neighborhood drunk, wearing only his underpants. A concerned parent called cops to complain about the driver after he began yelling and cursing at kids who'd flagged down his truck, then stripped off everything but his tighty whities. Officers arrived on the scene and found Ryan Duff glassy-eyed behind the wheel of the sweet ride, belligerent and refusing to submit to a Breathalyzer test. Police requested backup from a drug recognition expert, who determined that Duff was under the influence and hauled him off to the cooler, where he was booked on DWI charges and released to a sober driver.

    Read This: Feel GREAT!

    All waiters and waitresses have to occasionally work the slow nights when they know they're not going to be earning much money in tips, but there's one 19-year-old waiter in Illinois who might start requesting to work those nights after his last one. Brendan Motill was working at a barbecue restaurant and wasn't expecting a very good night. Little did he know that the customer he had chatted with for a while because it was slow night was going to leave the largest tip he could ever imagine. Motill says he was shocked when he returned to his table to collect the bill and saw a $1,000 tip. The entire meal only cost $20. Along with the tip was a note which read, "You're doing a great job as a server. I'm not sure what your hopes and dreams are in this life, but I hope this tip helps. My hope is that people are more peaceful to each other. The world can be so negative and violent. I commit random acts of kindness so that others know there can be another way. Peace be with you, brother!" -and you too, this weekend. ~Rowdy

    "Possum" Lives On (in some of us.)

    A Pennsylvania man was mowed down by cops last week after a witness reported he was carrying a box of beer while driving erratically down a road -- on his lawn mower. Tyler Anspach, who lost his license to drive a real car after three DUI convictions, was pulled over on his way home from a friend's house and unsteady on his feet when officers coaxed him off the riding mower. According to the police report, Anspach became combative when approached and refused to surrender the box of beer he was carrying. When he also declined to get into a patrol car, deputies hogtied him and carried him to the cruiser. His alcohol level was recorded at 0.212 percent, nearly three times the legal limit.

    An At-Work Observation Becomes Reality

    EMPLOYEES ARE LESS ENGAGED A new survey of human resource professionals found that one of their biggest challenges with the employees working at their companies is that those employees are just not engaged. Their heads aren’t in it. They’re sort of beat down by downsizing and firings – and constantly on the lookout for a new gig. I; for one th :)

    A "Burger/King" Wedding?

    Congratulations go out to Joel Burger and Ashley King who got married over the weekend in a super-sized wedding catered and paid for by Burger King. The Illinois couple made international headlines several months ago after they announced their upcoming Burger-King wedding. The fast-food giant caught wind of it and decided to do something special for the couple. They offered to give them "a whopper of a wedding" with BK picking up the entire tab – and they made good on their promise Friday afternoon. Guests wore paper crowns and chowed down on their favorite menu items. The wedding also signaled the end of Burger-King as Ashley said she is taking Joel's name and they will from now on be the Burgers.

    Why Are There Not More FAT Criminals?

    This may explain it. ~Rowdy A would-be carjacker's attempt to take an Omaha, Nebraska woman's vehicle was foiled by the owner's short legs. Police say Suzanna Menjivar was on her way to work when she parked her car and got out. Just then, a man ran up to her with a gun and demanded her car. She handed over her keys and stood by waiting to see the thug drive off, but he didn't go anywhere. The woman is very short and had the driver's seat pushed all the way toward the steering wheel. The carjacker wasn't able to fit in the seat and couldn't figure out how to adjust. He even asked the woman to do it, but she told him she didn't know how. So the crook got frustrated and gave up. He jumped out of the car and ran away. Police haven't been able to identify him.

    No One Can Eat One TON!

    Through the years, Lay’s potato chips has done a great job of rolling out new flavors here and there. Some hit. Some miss. But, give them credit for trying. Well, one of the ways they’ve continued to be innovative is by inviting people to offer up their own ideas in the “Do Us a Flavor” competition. Out of millions of submissions, the contest is down to four finalists, which include: 1.“Southern Biscuits and Gravy” 2.“Kettle Cooked Greektown Gyro” 3.“New York Reuben” 4.“Wavy West Coast Truffle Fries” Not sure if any of those would be tastier than good ol’ “Sour Cream and Onion,” but give them credit for creativity. Voting officially begins on July 27 and runs through October 18 on the Do Us a Flavor website. Fans can also vote on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtags #VoteTruffleFries, #VoteBiscuits, #VoteReuben, or #VoteGyro. Dig in! ~Rowdy

    Rednecks Rejoice!

    Now, there is a reason other than BAIT to go eat SUSHI! This is great news … especially for pigs. Scientists have developed a superfood seaweed that apparently tastes just like bacon. Researchers at Oregon State University have developed a red marine algae called "dulse" that they say has “a pretty strong bacon flavor” when fried in a pan. And this algae has twice the nutritional value of kale. A superfood that tastes like bacon? Science is awesome. *I wish I had paid attention now. ~Rowdy

    Car Guys: Peep This

    MIAMI VICE FERRARI TESTAROSSA IS FOR SALE Men of a certain age remember watching Sonny Crocket and Rico Tubbs chase bad guys around Miami, while driving a white Ferrari Testarossa, in the 1980s show Miami Vice. At the time, that Ferrari was arguably the most famous car on the planet. Well, it’s currently for sale. It will be auctioned off on August 15th in Monterey, California, which means you have a chance to own a very fast, very powerful piece of nostalgia – that only has 16,000 miles on it. Of course, if you haven’t saved up enough money since that show was on the air, you can always relive those glory days by putting a more reasonably priced vintage poster up on your wall. -nah. ~Rowdy
