Is That A Tater In Your Pants

Thinkable Thursday to you all, my little gingersnaps. I'd like to take a moment of silence to remember our dearly departed Davey Jones of The Monkees, who provided hours and hours of television and musical entertainment to me during my childhood. RIP Davey. I'm just going to pretend you're on the Last Train to Clarksville.

Davy Jones has passed away at the age of 66.

A rep for the singer confirmed to TMZ that the singer died from a heart attack on Wednesday (February 29) in Martin County, Florida.

Davy and his fellow Monkees, Micky Dolenz, Mike Nesmith, and Peter Tork, had a series of hits including “Last Train to Clarksville,” “I’m a Believer,” and “Daydream Believer” and were featured in a TV show called The Monkees.

Davy last performed onstage on February 19 in Oklahoma.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Davy‘s family and friends during this difficult time.

In the news, a University of Georgia Soccer Player took a dollar's worth of hash browns and shoved them down her pants in an attempt to take them without paying for them. After a food service staff noticed her, she then removed the hash browns and placed them back on food counter. I'm not exactly sure which action is worse. However, she was charged with shoplifting, and banned from 12 UGA eateries for a year and was released on $1500 bail. Uh, Miss hash-brown-pants... you may just want to cough up the $1 next time. You know, a year from now when you get the chance to enter the eatery again.

University Of Georgia Soccer Player Carli Shultis Allegedly Steals Hash Browns By Stuffing Them In Her Pants

A University of Georgia soccer player has been charged with attempting to steal an order of hash browns by stuffing them down her pants.

Authorities arrested 19-year-old Carli Shultis at the Bulldog Cafe around 8:30 a.m. on February 21, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The sophomore admitted to shoving $1.06 worth of hash browns inside of her pants to avoid paying for them. She also told police that she had enough money to cover the purchase, so why the hash browns ended up where they did is unclear.

After noticing a food service worker had spotted her, Shultis removed the hash browns and attempted to put them back on the food counter, according to The Red and Black, a UGA student newspaper.

The soccer player -- who in a 2011 interview with University of Georgia Athletics stated that her favorite movie was Law Abiding Citizen -- has been banned from twelve UGA eateries for one year and charged with theft by shoplifting, according to the newspaper.

Shultis was taken to Clarke County Jail and released on $1,500 bail the same morning, The Athens Banner Herald reports.

KLM has a new "Meet and Seat" system where when you check into your international flight, you can view the profiles and interests of the other passengers around you, and decide who to sit by... maybe becoming Facebook friends with them later and possibly even sharing a taxi ride from the airport. Nope that's not creepy at all. And I'm not imagining in my mind why those guys are leaving together. Perhaps they should call it "Meet and Creep".

Perhaps the Mayans were correct in the prediction of the end of the world in 2012. Ladies and Gentlemen, Snooki is pregnant. Poor kid will probably be born with a few STDs and Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, but other than that, I'm sure Snooki is now in the running of Mother of the Year. Dang, I better step up my game. I was hoping to win that title this year. You know, Snooki, if you're not ready to parent, adoption is a viable option. Look at how well it worked out for your parents. What? I'm not being mean, they adopted her from Chile.

Snooki Pregnant & Covering Up

Newly pregnant Snooki
Wearing a loose fitting top for two, newly pregnant Snooki tried to shield herself from the rain underneath her coat as she filmed her new reality show in Jersey City on Wednesday.

As TMZ reported earlier, Snooks originally lied about being with child because she didn't want to jinx anything prior to being three months pregnant. Now that she's passed that threshold, an official announcement is expected at any moment.

And that's all the time I have for today. If you're tempted to shove a $1's worth of hash browns in your pants, save yourself the further embarrassment and just pay for them. Now if it's a $5 item it might be worth it, but $1 is just silly. Until tomorrow then...

A man was ordered to apologize on Facebook or Go to Jail

In June 2011, Mark Byron, a photographer from Cincinnati, was found guilty of cilvil domestic violence against his wife and she was granted a temporary protection order. In November, Byron posted a note to his Facebook wall reading, ""If you are an evil, vindictive woman who wants to ruin your husband's life and take your son's father away from him completely -- all you need to do is say you're scared of your husband or domestic partner and they'll take him away!"

Byron had blocked his wife from viewing his Facebook page, however she still received word of the post and proceeded to file charges against her husband stating that his post was in violation of her protection order, which prohibited her [then] husband "from causing the plaintiff or the child of the parties to suffer physical and/or mental abuse, harassment, annoyance or bodily injury. On January 25th, Byron was given the option of going to jail for 60 days and paying a $500 fine, or pay back child support and post an apology to his Facebook page for 30 days.
