Goes In Black, Comes Out Green, Spawns a Hashtag

We've already written about Burger King's new Black Bun Halloween Whopper.

It's already a popular item in Japan, where they say that squid ink makes the bun black. Yummy, huh?

Here in The States, the word was that A-1 Steak Sauce is responsible for the bun's color.

So what happens inside the human body stateside that makes a consumer's solid waste turn green?

According to the folks at Gizmodo.com, “the green product of the black burger is probably the result of blue food coloring.”

Isn't that cute? The "green product." What a euphemism.

Meanwhile, folks are having a blast with this on social media. Go to Twitter and follow the hashtag #greenpoo to join in the fun.

The Biebs Unveiled

Justin Bieber was caught with his pants not only down but off, and the pictures are sort of blowing up the Internet.

Some paparazzi on a mission snapped the shots while Justin and The Biebs were on vakay in Bora Bora.

And now, they've taken over just about every social media outlet.

I can't share a lot of them here, but some are very very very funny.
There's also a hardcore group of Biebs Fans who demand that we not share the pics, and instead respect Justin's privacy.

These folks clearly don't understand today's world...

How Did He Manage to Call 911?

This is one of those stories you could make up, but no one would ever believe it.

A22-year-old guy in Austintown, Ohio called 911 last Friday at about 5 o'clok in the afternoon.


Because he was "too high."

Scroll down to listen to the 911 audio.

When the cops arrived, they report they found him on the floor, curled up into a fetal position, and surrounded by Doritos, Chips Ahoy and Pepperidge Farm's Goldfish.

When he's done serving his time, I fully expect this guy to hit the road with Snoop Dogg.

I Guess We'd Call Them "Buseyisms"

Gary Busey was sent home this week from Dancing with the Stars.

But he's the sort of guy who doesn't seem to mind much.

And who knows? It's a reality TV show, and anything could happen.

He could return as early as next week.

Meanwhile, just before this week's show the folks at E! caught up with Gary and had him spout some wisdom about some random things.

They really couldn't be more random. And they're actually pretty funny.

American Ninja Warrior Meets Jurassic World

File this one under Things You Never Thought About But Now You Can't Get Enough of It.

A guy named Reko Rivera put on a Tyrannosaurus Rex costume and ran an indoor obstacle course - American Ninja Warrior style.

Up ramps, climbing ropes, scaling walls, you name it.

The results were hilarious.

And if the folks at ANW don't see this as a perfect way to boost their ratings - well, they're simply not paying attention.

Check it out.

30 Years of "One Day More"

It's hard to believe that Les Miserables has been around for 30 years.

The musical based on the life-and-death struggles of Jean Valjean with the French Revolution as a backdrop has been produced theatrically since 1985 all over the world.

Not too long ago, Hugh Jackman played Valjean in the movie version of the musical.

And to celebrate the show's 30th anniversary, the cast of the current Broadway production put together a montage video featuring performances of the song that ends the first act, "One Day More," from across the years.

It's pretty moving, and very nicely put together.

Glass Walkway 3500 Feet Up Shatters - But It's Okay!

Not even a month ago, a glass-bottomed walkway opened to the public at Yuntai Mountain Geological Park in Henan Province, China.

It's 3540 feet up, and wraps around an outcropping of rock in a U shape.

On Monday, a tourist dropped a stainless-steel coffee mug on the walkway, and the glass shattered, "causing the tourists on it to understandably freak out," according to one source.

You think?

There are three panels of glass, and only one cracked, so the engineers claim no one was in danger.

Uh huh. Know what? Just watching the video makes me squeamish.

Being on it and hearing it crack - safe or not - I'm getting off and never getting back on...
