WTF news: Rabbit Pizza, Children in Claw Machines, and More!

 
 

Trend on the Rise: Children Climbing into Claw Crane Games

Earlier this week a little girl climbed into a claw machine and began passing out toys to others. However, this is the second time within a week that this has happened. Coincidence? I think not. I don’t blame these kids. Those games are so frustrating.

Impossible.

So, if I were small enough to crawl in and grab my own toys, why not? That’s a game within itself. The fun challenge is to find your way back out.

Free toys!

But apparently this isn’t a new thing, kids have been doing this for years. Here’s a fabulous video from 2008 of a girl crawling inside while her large mother tries to rescue her. Note how the little child in the beginning just walks away slowly as if she saw nothing.

 

Loch Ness Monster on Apple Maps

So, I guess some members of the Official Loch Ness Monster Fan Club (yes, it’s a real thing) are losing their shit because they think they found “Nessie” on the satellite images.

Whale, whale, whale, what have we got here?

Apparently some people were really stumped, including Scottish Canals, the government agency which manages the country’s inland waterways. But there are groups that dedicate their lives to solving such mysteries and point out that this is most likely a boat wake and the boat is just not visible, due to AppleMaps image quality.

Bum bum bum…looks like Scooby Doo and the gang solved another mystery.

I’ve always been anti-Apple Maps ever since it came out and this little issue makes me feel like the Geico camel on Wednesday. So go ahead, continue to use your Apple maps and fall off cliffs and drive where roads disappear. Apparently Apple wants you to believe in mythical creatures too. Quick, someone with an iPhone go search the North Pole for Santa!

 Easter Special: Rabbit Pizza!

A New Zealand pizza chain, Hell Pizza, created a new pizza just for Easter: rabbit! Gross. Of course PETA is having a fit and questioning the source of the rabbit meat, “Were the once-lively little animals who were ground into pizza toppings shot, strangled or snared? Were they gassed, or did they have their spines pulled away from their necks?” Too much imagery. But the main issue with this pizza is the company’s form of advertising. Hell Pizza created a billboard made entirely from real rabbit skins. There are more than 100 rabbits on the board.

Anyone see Bugs?

 Clive Bundy says, “Black people better off as slaves”

So Clive Bundy spoke with the New York Times and discussed the compared people on welfare with slavery. He says, “I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro…in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids — and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch — they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do.

 

Oh Clive.

“And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do?” he asked. “They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.” Well sir. That’s quite a statement to say during 2014. Clive brings up some controversial issues but I’m not sure he says everything correctly. For now, all we can says is WTF to his statement and see what happens next. It frightens me that there still are people who live and think like this.

Clive, bro. Come on, it’s 2014.
