    It Was Bound To Happen

    A restaurant set to open in Dallas is taking the idea of the breastaurant and turning it on its head, replacing hot women in tight T-shirts with studly men. The new establishment, called Tallywackers, is pretty much the male version of Hooters – and they’re hiring. Expecting to open in May, Tallywackers is hiring hunky bartenders, servers, busboys, cooks, and hosts. So if you’ve got the abs – or a beer belly and a sense of humor – head on over for an interview. -and you were wondering the reason I was going out of town this weekend... ~Rowdy

    Insulin, anyone?

    If there’s one thing Americans are good at, it’s creating crazy food. The latest over-the-top food comes from New York restaurant Sticky Fingers Joint, which is serving Cotton Candy Fries. Seriously. It’s a serving of French fries, smothered In caramel sauce, strawberry Pop Rocks, and cotton candy. How drunk, high, or exhausted would you have to be to point to such a thing on the menu and say, “yes”? For me, not very. ~Rowdy

    How Dare They!

    The United Church of Bacon is a megachurch based in Las Vegas that praises pork. They've been around since 2010, but just recently have been making noise because they're claiming religious discrimination. According to church officials, a major bank is refusing to sign off on their documents because they don’t recognize the Church of Bacon to be a real religion or a real not-for-profit organization. It is for real. They’ve even got 9 Bacon Commandments to follow. So, because they’re real, they’re fighting to preserve the rights other churches and charities get to take advantage of, including access to credit offered by banks. As a newly ordained Minister myself, I have been looking for a house of worship to start. Perhaps an Oklahoma branch would be better received. I think it would be. ~Reverend Rowdy

    At Last! a DIET Game-Changer!

    For a long time now, health-conscious drinkers have been able to enjoy only one of two options – light beer or red wine. But now, thanks to a new company with a cheesy name, diet whiskey is a thing. Thinn Light Whiskey – distilled by Sinfully Thinn – clocks in at 100 calories per shot and is low-carb, allowing you to go on a bender without suffering from a beer gut. *If it tastes as good as I hope it does, I am selling my stock in Jack Daniels. ~Rowdy

    New York Will NEVER Be The Same

    A women's group is trying a new tactic to get men in New York City to kick the catcall habit – by placing signs around the city making whistles and unwanted remarks seem illegal. The clothing non-profit Feminist Apparel has taken credit for the over 50 signs that look official, even if they're not city-sanctioned. One of the street sign designs features the image of a cat being harassed by two stick figure men, with words reading, "No Catcall Zone." The other design mimics a "No Parking" sign and reads, "No Catcalling Anytime" with an arrow pointing in both directions. For what it's worth, city officials say they approve of the idea, but intend to take down the signs. A rep says, "While we understand the concept of this campaign, these signs were placed without permission." Good luck with that..~Rowdy

    Has Your Boss "Checked Out?"

    According to a new Gallup survey of American managers, 51% have basically checked out and don't care about their jobs or the company they work for. "Day in and day out, managers are tasked with engaging employees, but 51% of managers have essentially ‘checked out,’ meaning they care little, if at all, about their job and company," says the Gallup report. And, of course, if managers are checked out, that doesn’t bode well for the morale of the employees who report to them. Wanting independent verification, I decided to ask my own boss a few questions, and get her opinion on the article. -I could not find her anywhere :) ~Rowdy

    Avoid Napping on the Job!

    Falling asleep on the job can be dangerous. Just ask the Alaska Airlines ramp worker who fell asleep on the cargo hold of a Boeing 737. His banging prompted pilots to make an emergency landing in Seattle on Monday afternoon. The drama unfolded on a flight headed for Los Angeles. According to Alaska Air, the plane's pilots "reported hearing banging from beneath the aircraft...immediately after takeoff." Passengers seated in first class also heard the banging and someone yelling for help. The airline added, "The captain immediately returned to Seattle, declaring an emergency priority landing" after the plane was in the air for 14 minutes. Since the front cargo hold was pressurized and temperature controlled, the ramp agent appeared to be fine, but was still sent to the hospital to get checked out. Alaska Airlines added, "Upon exiting, he told authorities he had fallen asleep." The airline says it's "actively investigating the matter." *The employee, likely, will be actively investigating new and exciting career opportunities. ~Rowdy

    How to Get Over Him-the Scientific Way

    So it turns out the best way to get over a breakup is NOT to eat an entire pan of brownies, down a few bottles of Cab, or hook up with a stranger. Believe it or not, a study shows that the best way to get over it is to dwell on it. After studying 200-plus adults who had recently gone through a breakup, researchers at the University of Arizona and Northwestern University found that the most effective way to get over a split was to talk about it. They found that the people who discussed their breakups at length over a two-month period reported feeling less lonely and had fewer obsessive thoughts than those who didn't spend a lot of time talking about it. *Your poor friends … ~Rowdy

    Fair Food 2015?

    It must be fair season, because someone has created a funnel cake ice cream sandwich. Picture vanilla mascarpone ice cream, sandwiched between two deep-fried funnel cakes. This sweet sensation if the creation of John Park, owner of Ice Que in Alhambra, California. For now, you can only get the funnel cake ice cream sandwich – which sell for $6.50 – on Thursday nights from 6-8 p.m, but John says if it takes off he'll increase the availability. Hopefully, we'll be tasting this tantalizing treat in September! ~Rowdy

    One Crappy Criminal

    A crook in Iowa is sure to be the butt of jokes for some time to come after staging a robbery that netted him one thing -- a bag of dog poop! The victim called 911 and told police that someone had broken into the driver's side door of his truck in the wee hours of Wednesday morning. The suspect, who is still at large, used a blunt object to bust into the vehicle, and ended up damaging the steering column and ignition switch with the same item. When he realized he was getting nowhere with the truck theft, the wannabe crook decided to clean up by snatching the contents of the truck bed -- which amounted to one large bag of dog feces. The police report values the poop at one dollar -- but the suspect could still face charges of third-degree burglary, a class-C felony. I had no idea it was worth that much money. By the looks of my back yard, I am on my way to an early retirement. ~Rowdy

    Prayers Answered!

    Sometimes you just have to have a bean and cheese burrito ... and going out to get one is just too much work. Well, your prayers have been answered, because the CEO of Taco Bell just revealed that they are testing out a delivery service to become a more "on-demand" brand. No word yet on the market the delivery service will be tested in ... but we're pretty sure it will be somewhere there's a college or two. Or, access to a bumper crop of weed. ~Rowdy

    Doctors Say: CUT The Cheese (literally)

    Americans eat a staggering 35 pounds of cheese per year – and those numbers continue to rise. One reason cheese consumption seems to increase every year is that cheese may be just as dangerously addictive as hard drugs such as opium or heroin. Researchers at the University of Michigan found that cheese is way more addictive when compared to other foods, in part because of the way it’s processed. Scientists found that unprocessed foods – like brown rice or seafood – did not cause the same addictive behaviors in participants as processed ones, like cheese. There are two things about cheese that mess with our brains. First is the fat, which is a problem for almost everyone, regardless of whether they experience symptoms of food addiction. Cheese also has a chemical called casein, which signals our brain to release extra dopamine – the pleasure hormone – with every bite. I see The Betty Ford Clinic opening up a whole new wing for this problem. I'll be the first one to check in. ~Rowdy

    I Gotta Get Me One of These

    A company in Slovakia says that they’re just two years away from putting a flying car on the market. AeroMobil claims they have a flying car prototype that fits into any standard parking space, uses regular gasoline, and can be used in road traffic just like any other car. And then, if you want to use it as a plane, all you need is an airport – or even just a grass strip or paved surface just a few hundred yards long. *I for one, will not be interested until they offer a model that can safely and securely tow my airstream. ~Rowdy
