Thriving Thursday to you all, my little gingersnaps. This is the time of year when we all go to our local pumpkin patches and get lost in corn mazes. Kind of like this couple. Except I hope none of us will be lame enough to call 911 for assistance... like this couple.
Yes that's right. A couple, with their two kids got lost in a corn maze in Massachusetts and called 911 to help them get out because they were "getting eaten alive by mosquitoes". Police with a K9 unit were able to find them by the end of the 7 minute phone call, and it turns out the family was just 25 feet from the end of the maze. I'm expecting the husband to turn in his man-card any minute now. I don't have a lot of hope for those children.
Dispatcher: "911, what's your emergency?"
Stupid family: "We're lost in a corn maze and mosquitoes are eating us alive!"
In whiny celebrity news, Kristen Stewart is coming forward about how her teachers failed her and how she was given no choice but to become homeschooled. She says (and I quote)
“School became genuinely uncomfortable. I was feeling a little self-conscious about the acting thing with my peers, but also my teachers became a problem. They didn’t want to do the extra work or put packages together so I could keep up while away.
They failed me. My teachers failed me. Not one, but all of them. I’m always slightly ashamed in a way, about what I do. I’m slightly embarrassed as I had such serious ambitions when I was younger, I just never imagined that I would ever have a reason not go to school. But then this happened.”
Hmmm... I wonder if she ever learned how to spell, "ENTITLED" in homeschool.
Congrats to Jared Padalocks and his
demon lover wife, from the show "Supernatural", who are expecting a baby. I think Jensen Ankles and his wife should follow suit. Then they can be best friends, playing brothers, expecting babies at the same time who will be kind of like, but not really, cousins.
Twitter just got filled with some more four-letter word tweets because Samuel L. Jackson has officially joined twitter. Check out the video below to see his first tweet. And what are you waiting for? Follow him! He's trying to get a million followers.
And now, for today's FAIL...
And today's WIN. It's supposed to be a FAIL, but anything with Bob Ross in it is a WIN to me. Those of you who've known me for a while will know that Bob Ross is in the "top 10 people I'm obsessed with" category. Because, who doesn't like a happy tree?
Sidenote: despite my love for Bob Ross, I can't help but be annoyed by this person's bad photoshop job with his hair. I SO could've done a better job with his afro.
Hey, WTF??! This, my friends is why animal activists are able to get cities like Irvine to ban circuses, rodeos and all sales of animals. You're not helping us, freaky cat-holding holiday couple.

And that's all the time I have for today. Go out and buy yourself a pet before it becomes illegal in your city too. And don't forget to check back here tomorrow, for a very special post, all about boobies (AND A GIVEAWAY!). Until tomorrow then, this is for you...
The Washington National Cathedral is the second-largest cathedral in the United States.
Constructed from 1907 to 1990 (that's 83 years!) by the Episcopalian Church, this cathedral features hundreds of gargoyles and grotesques (like the one pictured on the right).
Among it's numerous grotesques and gargoyles, it boasts the only sculpture of Darth Vader in a religious building in the world! During the construction of the west towers, the developers decided to hold a competition for children to design decorative sculptures for the Cathedral and Darth Vader was chosen.
