What you Missed this Morning!






 





The new season of "American Horror Story" is called "Freak Show" . . . and it features a serial killer clown named Twisty, who stalks couples with scissors and locks children up in an old school bus.That's not exactly the brightest portrayal of clowns . . . not that you'd expect anything different from a show called "American Horror Story".  Nonetheless, the nation's real-life NON-evil clowns are NOT happy about it.

If you weren't aware, there's an organization called "Clowns of America International" . . . and the president is speaking out.

He says, quote, "Hollywood makes money sensationalizing the norm.  They can take any situation, no matter how good or pure, and turn it into a nightmare.  

"We do not support in any way, shape, or form any medium that sensationalizes or adds to coulrophobia or 'clown fear.'"

No one from the show has responded . . . and they probably won't.

 


 



Red Bull just settled a false advertising lawsuit, and now owes anyone who bought one of its drinks between Jan. 1, 2002, and Oct. 3, 2014, either $10 cash or $15 worth of Red Bull products.

 

Red Bull was sued by drinkers who said that consumers were misled by the slogan “Red Bull gives you wings.”

 

The plaintiffs claimed that the company’s advertised benefits, like increased performance and reaction speed, were false advertising, and not backed up with scientific evidence. One of the plaintiffs said despite drinking the product since 2002, he saw no improvement in his athletic performance.

According to the lawsuit:

Such deceptive conduct and practices mean that [Red Bull’s] advertising and marketing is not just ‘puffery,’ but is instead deceptive and fraudulent and is therefore actionable.

Despite settling, Red Bull denied any wrongdoing in a statement:

Red Bull settled the lawsuit to avoid the cost and distraction of litigation. However, Red Bull maintains that its marketing and labeling have always been truthful and accurate, and denies any and all wrongdoing or liability.

NBC

So here’s the good part: If you want to claim your $10 cash refund, register online here by March 2, 2015. No proof of purchase is required.

Tumblr

update

It should probably be noted that if a certain number of people sign up and the $13 million is reached, then the reimbursement will begin to be diluted so that every person can receive a share.

According to the filing, a hearing will be held on May 1, 2015 to decide whether the settlement will be approved. If the court approves the settlement, payment will be distributed 150 days later (pending appeals).

update

The website is back up after crashing earlier in the week.

Making your own zombie costume is pretty cheap and easy . . . just tear up old some clothes, slap on a little make-up, and you're good.  And you KNOW here in America, we LOVE things that are cheap and easy.  Including yo mama.

Goodwill just released the results of a poll on the most popular homemade and do-it-yourself costumes for this Halloween . . . and zombie was easily number one.

It's one of the top three costumes for adult men, adult women, teenage males, teenage females, and boys.  The only group where zombies aren't in the top three is girls' costumes.  Here are the top three for all six age groups . . .

Adult men:  Zombie, pirate, soldier.                                                        

Adult women:  Witch, zombie, pirate.

Teenage male:  Zombie, pirate, vampire.

Teenage female:  Witch, princess, zombie.

Boys:  Ninja turtle, Spider-Man, zombie.

Girls:  Princess, witch, fairy. 

 


 


Great news, guys . . . here's your excuse to avoid spending two months' salary on an engagement ring.  You can spend something closer to three dinners at the 99.

A new study found the BIGGER your engagement ring . . . the SMALLER the chance your marriage will last.  So go ahead and buy your girlfriend a diamond that you need a magnifying glass to see.

Researchers at Emory University in Atlanta found that men who spent between $2,000 and $4,000 on an engagement ring were 130% more likely to get divorced than guys who spent $500 to $2,000.

They also found that people whose weddings cost more than $20,000 are 350% more likely to get divorced than people whose weddings cost under $10,000.

One caveat on all this:  The good people at Emory don't seem to know what wedding stuff actually costs.

The average guy now spends $5,598 on an engagement ring . . . $1,598 more than the high end of their range in the study.  And the average wedding is now $28,858 . . . $8,858 more than the high end of their range in the study.

 



It's official:  "Bridesmaids" director PAUL FEIG is making a new female-led "Ghostbusters" movie.


                                                  

He announced on Twitter that it will star, quote, "hilarious women".  He didn't name any names, though.  But he did say he's writing it with Katie Dippold, who he co-wrote "The Heat" with.  Katie also wrote for "Parks and Recreation" and "Mad TV".

For what it's worth, Bill Murray recently gave his picks for female Ghostbusters.  He suggested Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Linda Cardellini and Emma Stone.

There's no word if this means the death of a "Ghostbusters 3" starring the original guys . . . or at least what's left of them . . . or if they'll be somehow incorporated into this movie.




 



When you load up your plate on Thanksgiving, all the food winds up touching each other in a giant carb-loaded orgy.  So the latest Thanksgiving trend KNOWS all the food blends together . . . and saves you the hassle of serving them separately.

It's called "Thanksgiving in a Bucket."  When you're making Thanksgiving dinner, instead of having everything on its own separate dish, you layer everything into a bucket . . . kind of like a Thanksgiving parfait.
You put stuffing on the bottom, because it's best at absorbing all the other flavors.  Then mashed potatoes on top of that . . . then a green vegetable . . . then sweet potatoes . . . turkey and gravy . . . and finally cranberry sauce.

And you serve it with a big cake spatula so you can give someone an entire slice of Thanksgiving all at once.

Amazon Prime has slapped a RACISM WARNING on old "Tom and Jerry" cartoons, some of which were made more than 70 years ago.

It says, quote, "[These] shorts may depict some ethnic and racial prejudices that were once commonplace in American society.  Such depictions were wrong then, and are wrong today."

Among other things, "Tom and Jerry" has some characters shown in blackface . . . and there's an African American maid named "Mammy Two Shoes," who appears with a musical soundtrack very similar to traditional plantation songs.

"Tom and Jerry" isn't currently available for Amazon Prime instant viewing in the U.S., so there's no warning here.  But it's available in some countries overseas, and people have posted screenshots of the warning on social media.

We spoke with you about it this morning this call sums it up...


 




Mammy Two Shoes
 

 



 
It's the first day of October, and if you're planning to make a big purchase this month, check THIS out first.  Here are the five BEST and WORST things you can buy this month.  First, the five best!
.

1.  A new car.  Most of the dealerships started selling their 2015 models last month, so the prices on their 2014 models should go down now.

 

2.  Tickets for a cruise.  Cruises in the Caribbean are always SUPER cheap in October.  But that's partly because the weather's kind of unpredictable.


3.  iPads.  Apple is expected to announce their new iPad models later this month.  And in the past, older models have always dropped in price about 20% when that happens.


4.  Camping gear.  It goes on sale because camping season is pretty much over.  The only things that DON'T go on sale are cold-weather things, like down sleeping bags.

5.  Pizza.  It's not clear why, but pizza places LOVE offering deals this time of year.  Maybe because of football?  In 2013, Dominos, Pizza Hut, and Papa John's all offered their best coupons in October.

As far as the WORST things to buy this month, stay away from appliances . . . cold-weather clothing . . . electronics . . . big-screen TVs . . . and laptops.  All of those things go on sale NEXT month for Black Friday.

 

 
 


TRACY MORGAN suffered a pretty serious head injury when a truck plowed into his limo back in June . . . and his recovery includes daily speech and cognitive therapy.  It's so bad that Tracy's lawyer doesn't know if he'll ever perform again.

He says, quote, "The jury's still out.  The doctors don't know the answer.  I don't know the answer."

Tracy's still in a wheelchair.  The paparazzi filmed him being wheeled into the hospital yesterday afternoon, and he looked and sounded a little off.  TMZ says it's possible he may never walk again without assistance.

The voice cast for the "Angry Birds" movie is LOADED with comedy superstars, including three "Saturday Night Live" veterans:  Jason Sudeikis, Bill Hader and Maya Rudolph . . . plus Kate McKinnon from the current "SNL" cast.

Other big names include Peter Dinklage, Danny McBride, Tony Hale from "Arrested Development" and "Veep", Keegan-Michael Key from "Key & Peele", and the YouTube duo Smosh . . . a.k.a. Ian Andrew Hecox and Anthony Padilla.

"Angry Birds" is due in theaters in July of 2016.




Do you ever do that thing where you're introduced to someone, and within two seconds you've already forgotten their name?  I do it CONSTANTLY . . . and I notice people also do it with me.

 

So here's a great psychological trick to help you remember people's names . . . and help them remember yours.

When you introduce yourself, give your first AND last name.  That will catch the other person off guard . . . and actually make them stop and process your name so it sticks in their memory.

And when you're meeting someone and they just give their first name, ask them for THEIR last name too.

It may seem a little strange at first, but it'll make you focus more on what they're saying, and vice versa.  It makes a more memorable impression overall, and helps you commit the name to memory. 

 

 

 

 





Everybody was talking this week about the female fighter pilot from the United Arab Emirates who gave it to ISIS this week in Syria.  It's kind of cool, because she's the country's first female fighter pilot, and ISIS is so oppressive towards women.  But when they brought it up on Fox News, all the male co-hosts could do was crack sexist jokes about it.  (Greg Gutfeld made a joke about how she couldn't park the plane when she came back from the mission, and Eric Bolling asked if they should call her "boobs on the ground."  Sounds like a reference to the expression "boots on the ground," but who knows.
The smart one of the whole bunch was the female co-host is Kimberly Guilfoyle.)

Derek Jeter's Final At-Bat at Yankee Stadium Was a Game-Winning Single

  DEREK JETER played his final game at Yankee Stadium last night, and it could hardly have gone better.  His last at-bat, in the bottom of the ninth, was an RBI single that gave the Yankees a 6 to 5 win over the Baltimore Orioles.

 

 

Jeter had a monster game throughout the night.  He hit an RBI double off the wall in his first at-bat, then scored a run.  And in the 7th inning he grounded into a fielder's choice that scored TWO runs thanks to a Baltimore throwing error.

Former teammates Jorge Posada, Mariano Rivera, Bernie Williams, Andy Pettitte and Tino Martinez and ex-Yankee manager Joe Torre lined up near the dugout to congratulate Jeter.

After the game he said, quote, "I've said it time and time again.  Everybody is chanting, 'Thank you, Derek.'  I'm thinking to myself, 'For what?'  I just want to thank you guys."

The Yankees didn't make the playoffs, but they do have a series against the Red Sox in Boston this weekend to finish out the season.  Jeter said he probably won't play shortstop, though.  He'll just be the designated hitter.

 



I don't mean to make you PARANOID about your relationship . . . but there's a 50-50 chance your wife or girlfriend has already handpicked your REPLACEMENT if your relationship goes bad.

A new survey found HALF of women have a "plan B" guy in mind in case their current relationship ends.  Here are some stats on those plan B guys . . .

The most likely candidate is one of her old friends.  Other candidates are an ex, a coworker, or someone she knows from the gym.

The average woman has known her plan B guy for seven years.

70% of women with a plan B guy are currently in TOUCH with him.

10% of women say their plan B guy already confessed that he's always been in love with her.  20% say they're pretty sure their plan B guy would drop everything to be with her.

And 12% of women say they actually have stronger feelings for the plan B guy than they do for the guy they're currently with.
 




The Guy Who Started "Bendgate" . . . the Bending Problem With the iPhone 6

 

By now you might have heard about "Bendgate."  Bendgate is two things:  An issue where the design of the iPhone 6 Plus allows it to bend . . . and the most annoying example yet of adding '-gate' to minor problems, to make them sound like Watergate.

It started with the YouTube channel Unbox Therapy.  They posted a video yesterday called "iPhone 6 Plus Bend Test" where they showed how it was fairly easy to bend the new, bigger, iPhone 6 Plus with just your hands.  And it already has 16 MILLION views.


They didn't exactly discover the issue . . . they did the video in response to people who'd bought the phone, and found it was bending in their front or back pockets.  But after the video, #bendgate started trending on social media.  (Do you care?)

Then people argued that the case is made of aluminum and about a quarter-inch thick . . . so it doesn't take super-human force to bend it.  (Maybe you should stop wearing skinny jeans?)




 

So Unbox Therapy did ANOTHER test, to see whether any of this was a big deal.  They tried to bend the iPhone BACK, and cracked the frame and the screen.  While other brands of phones didn't bend at all.  So 'Bendgate isn't going anywhere.
As for Unbox Therapy it's basically just a guy named Lewis Hilsenteger, covering new gadgets, technology, and electronics.  He has 1,225,603 subscribers and 120,042,867 views.  And will probably get a lot more after this.

 





Gaining Weight Lately? September Is the Second "Fattest" Month of the Year

 


 
It's officially fall . . . six months of being able to hide any unwanted LUMPINESS under big sweaters and jackets!  Which means . . . it's time to EAT.

If you've noticed you've been eating a little more heartily these past few weeks, you're not alone.  A new study found September is the second "fattest" month of the year.  There's only one month where people gain more weight . . . December.

People put on an average of two pounds this month.  Compared to FOUR pounds in December.

So the top five months for gaining weight, in order, are:  December, September, August, November, and October.

We LOSE the most weight in January, and the second-most in June. 

 

 



SkyMall" magazine has really upped their "stupid product" game . . . and they did it with THIS. 

"SkyMall" is selling a new watch called Tikker that counts down until your DEATH.

When you get the watch, it uses, quote, "statistics and a personal health algorithm" to figure out your life expectancy.  And then, the countdown begins . . . you literally watch the remaining seconds of your life tick away.

The watch also tells you the current time, but apparently not well . . . the photo in the ad displays the time "12:76."  Clearly, the "current time" feature of this watch is NOT the selling point.

The watch sells for $79.99.  The ad says it's a, quote, "happiness watch [because it] inspires you to live your life to the fullest."

 

 
AC/DC has announced that founding guitarist MALCOLM YOUNG is NOT coming back.

Earlier this year they said he was just taking a break.  At the time lead singer BRIAN JOHNSON said he had a, quote, "debilitating illness."

Well, it must be pretty serious, because now they're saying that Malcolm is done for GOOD.

Quote, "Unfortunately, due to the nature of Malcolm's condition, he will not be returning to the band."  There's still no word what's wrong with him.  Malcolm is 61 years old.

AC/DC will continue though, with Malcolm's nephew STEVIE YOUNG in his place.  Stevie played guitar on their new album "Rock or Bust", which comes out on December 2nd.  And he'll go out on tour with them next year.

"Rock or Bust" will be the first album in the band's 41-year history NOT to feature Malcolm.  His last album with the band was "Black Ice", which came out in 2008.

 
 


DEREK JETER's retirement is almost upon us . . . so if you're one of the MANY people who would LOVE to own a USED SOCK that Jeter actually wore in a game, you should act now, because you're running out of time.

SteinerSports.com has some of Jeter's used socks on sale, for a measly $410 . . . each.  That's right, $410 won't even get you a PAIR.

The sock HAS been washed, so unfortunately it won't come with any of Jeter's funk.  Which honestly seems to devalue it.  If you can't satisfy your kink . . . what's the point in dropping over $400 on a sock that is probably worth less than $10?

It's unclear how many have been sold, but last we checked the site only had 19 socks available.  They also have a lot of other Jeter stuff . . . game-worn uniforms WITH dirt and grass stains are going for more than $25,000 . . .

Game-used bases signed by Jeter go for $10,000 to $12,500 . . . a signed lineup card has an asking price of $10,000 . . . and used batting gloves go for about $800.  Sadly, no game-worn Jeter jockstraps are available.

This would seem cool if it was for charity, but the "New York Post" says all the proceeds go to Jeter and the Yankees . . . a team that's worth more than $2.5 BILLION.  (Hit up SteinerSports.com to browse through Jeter's yard sale.)

 


 




Is It Acceptable to Use Your Cell Phone During Dinner, Checking Out at the Grocery Store, or at the Movies?

 

Everywhere you go these days . . . on the street, at a restaurant, at the movies . . . you see people staring straight down at their phones.  Unless you're too busy staring at YOURS.  So . . . has it become socially acceptable?

A new survey asked people when it is and isn't appropriate to use your cell phone in public.  Here are the results . . .

47% say it's acceptable to use your phone for talking or texting when you walk down the street.  17% say it's only acceptable for talking . . . not looking down and texting.

34% say it's acceptable to be on your phone when you're checking out at a store.

28% say it's acceptable to be on your phone texting when you're with other people at a restaurant.  Another 48% say it's only okay to pull out your phone at a restaurant if you're sharing something on it with the group.

26% say it's acceptable to use your phone in a movie theater during previews . . . 6% say it's acceptable to text during a movie . . . and 3% think it's acceptable to TALK on your phone during a movie. 

 

 


Checking Your Work Email at Home Could Literally Kill You

We all know we should push back when work wants us to stay on email after hours . . . but we don't.  So make sure your boss somehow hears about this study today . . . it might be the only way to change their mind.

A new study out of Germany found that checking your work email at home could LITERALLY kill you.

Researchers studied more than 57,000 people and found people who checked work emails and sometimes wound up doing work at home were more likely to have heart problems, headaches, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, and stomach issues.

The theory here is pretty simple . . . when you're "always on," you never give your body and mind a chance to relax and recuperate.  Over time, all that extra stress adds up until your body just can't handle it anymore.

Everyone's been going nuts over 21-year-old Jasmine Tridevil in Tampa, Florida, because she had a THIRD BREAST implanted.

It had "hoax" written all over it, but we all WANTED to believe it.  Unfortunately . . . yeah, it's a hoax.  Here are the six reasons why .

1.  Some minor Internet detective work found that Jasmine Tridevil is almost certainly the fake name of a woman named Alisha Hessler.  Alisha looks exactly like "Jasmine" and she registered the domain name JasmineTridevil.com.

2.  On a website where Alisha advertises her massage services, she wrote that she's a, quote, "provider of Internet hoaxes since 2014" and a, quote, "specialist in massage for three-breasted women."

3.  Alisha made the news back in December when she said she was attacked by a man outside a night club, and forced him to stand on a street corner wearing a dunce cap with a sign that said, quote, "I beat women, honk if I'm a scumbag."

But when the police got involved, she never filed charges and stopped returning their calls.

4.  Alisha was arrested back in March for fraudulent use of personal information, apparently using a fake ID to get into a club.  That's not necessarily proof of the hoax, but does help show her pattern.

5.  This might be the most damning evidence of all:  Alisha filed a stolen baggage claim at the Tampa International Airport earlier this month and one of the things she reported missing was a, quote, "three-breast prosthesis."

6.  And finally, a plastic surgeon says NO plastic surgeon would give a woman a third breast . . . because it's clear she would need a psychological evaluation, and performing the surgery would be unethical.

(Here's the photo  from Alisha's past year.)

Meanwhile, JADA PINKETT SMITH confirmed yesterday that she's in the movie . . . in a part that was originally written for a man.

 



A new survey found the average woman spends five hours a week in a bad mood . . . that adds up to almost 11 full days a year.  Which actually seems kind of LOW . . . for men AND women.










Top Reasons people gave for being in a bad mood.......

Being overweight 

Partner not listening 

Feeling under the weather 

Weather/ bad weather 

Not having enough money 

Technology e.g. internet crashing / computer not working

Feeling undervalued

No one helping with anything

Time of the month

PMT

Having nothing to wear

Having a bad hair day 

Keeping on top of housework / washing 

A boring life 

Heavy workload 

The traffic 

Colleagues not pulling their weight 

Being hungry 

Children not listening

Public transport being late

Hating your job 

Waking up with a spot 

Knowing what to cook for dinner every night 

Your boss putting pressure on you 

Rubbish on TV 

Ungrateful children 

All the hot water being used up in the morning 

Your friends' Facebook updates 

Going through menopause 

Colleagues being late for work 

No one making you a cup of tea 

Breaking a nail


 

 




If I mention the movie "Total Recall", what's the first thing you think of?  Yep . . . the alien chick with THREE BOOBS.  Well . . . it's no longer science fiction.

21-year-old Jasmine Tridevil is a masseuse in Tampa, Florida . . . and she recently spent $20,000 to have a THIRD BOOB implanted on her chest.
She says she did it because she's SICK OF MEN, and figured a third boob would make her UNATTRACTIVE to guys.  Which, if you know ANYTHING about guys, is clearly a WILD miscalculation on her part.  If anything, guys will now be MORE intrigued by her.

If all this sounds like a wild publicity stunt to get attention . . . you're absolutely right.  Jasmine admitted another one of her goals is to have a reality show on MTV.

She says she talked to at least 50 doctors before one agreed to give her the third breast.  He couldn't give her a nipple or areola so she had one tattooed on. 
 

 

 

 


 



Tons of Celebrities Showed Up for Joan Rivers' Funeral


JOAN RIVERS'
funeral wasn't quite the red carpet event she'd wanted, but it was definitely a star-studded event.  The celebrity lineup was seriously impressive. 
The names included .
Ozzy, Sharon and Kelly Osbourne, Giuliana and Bill Rancic, Kathy Griffin, Rosie O'Donnell, Mario Cantone, Kristin Chenoweth, Sally Jesse Raphael, Hota Kotb, Kathie Lee Gifford, Andy Cohen, Whoopi Goldberg . . .

Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, Jeff Ross, Donald and Melania Trump, Judge Judy Sheindlin, Michael Kors, Geraldo Rivera, Barbara Walters, Rachael Ray, Billy Bush, Joy Behar, Dr. Oz . . .

Kyle Maclachlan, Wanda Sykes, Paul Shaffer from "Letterman", Diane Sawyer, Charlie Rose and designers Michael Kors, Carolina Hererra, Oscar de la Renta and Dennis Basso.  

HOWARD STERN gave a eulogy, in which he said that Joan, quote, "fought the stereotype that women couldn't be funny.  She was responsible for putting the red carpet into prime time."

He added, quote, "I hope Joan is somewhere right now chasing Johnny Carson with a baseball bat" . . . a reference to Johnny's feud with Joan that lasted from the mid-'80s until his death.

Joan's daughter MELISSA also spoke, saying, quote, "I am grateful for everyday [my son] Cooper and I had with you.  You are an inspiration." 

 

 

There were also several musical performances.  HUGH JACKMAN sang a song called "Quiet Please, There's a Lady Onstage", from the musical "The Boy from Oz".

The New York City Gay Men's Chorus sang "Hey Big Spender" and "There Is Nothing Like a Dame" . . . and Broadway star Audra McDonald performed a rendition of "Smile".

As mourners left the Temple Emanu-El, bagpipes played "New York, New York" and "Give My Regards to Broadway".

Geraldo later said of the ceremony, quote, "When they started with an X-rated joke and the rabbi was bowing his head I think it was joyful more than sorrow.

"[It was] filled with laughter.  It was as if she wrote it herself.  I thought it was a wonderful, positive upbeat time."

One last note:  Joan had said that at her funeral, she wanted, quote, "Bobby Vinton to pick up my head and sing 'Mr. Lonely.'"  Well, Bobby is 79 and recovering from pneumonia, so he couldn't be there.




There's a moment in everyone's life when they spot that first GRAY HAIR and have a giant existential freak out about their mortality.  And that moment is . . . age 33, apparently.

A new survey found the average woman spots her first gray hair at age 33.

Redheads spot their first gray hair at 30 . . . women with brown and black hair spot their first one at 32 . . . and blondes don't see their first one until 35, because their hair is so light already.

88% of women say they dye their gray hairs . . . but by age 68, women finally stop fighting that battle and give up on dying their gray hairs.
