Q: 21% of women say THIS makes a man more attractive.
Bonehead Of The Day:
Don't have a gun if you're clumsy: A Hollywood, Florida man was taken to the hospital over the weekend after he accidentally shot himself...in the butt. The man, described as being in his 20s, was cleaning his hand gun when he dropped it and it discharged. The upside? "He is not going to be charged with anything," the police lieutenant said. "He was in his home. There was no foul play or suspicious incident."
Goonies 2 Gets Spielberg?
In case you missed it, there's been some news about "The Goonies" sequel. Original director Richard Donner announced plans to make a sequel earlier this month, but when TMZ caught up with the director over the weekend, he gave some new, and pretty important news.
While the cast is still up in the air, as is the actual story, original executive producer Steven Spielberg is onboard. "Of course," Donner said when the cameraman asked if Spielberg was already involved.
So far, there's been no other news, but we'll keep you updated as long as we're not too busy practicing our Truffle Shuffle.
Who says you have to stop partying just because you have children? According to the New York Daily News, family discos and raves are becoming increasing popular across London as those who used to pack world-famous venues like the Ministry of Sound are now packing lunches for their little ones.
One company that puts family-friendly parties together – Big Fish Little Fish – is owned by Hannah Saunders. She said she used to spend her weekends at clubs and warehouse parties. She said, “We haven’t stopped being people with our own interests.”
Since the kids like the music, it’s perfect for the parents. And for the most part, the partiers don’t get drunk – even though liquor is served – because they know their responsibilities as parents.
Poll Says Women Prefer A Guy Who Doesn't Drive A Fancy Car
Based on the results of a Harris poll commissioned by dating site AnastasiaDate, women would actually prefer you not drive a fancy car. Apparently, the majority of women “associate fancy cars with negative character traits” — they’re arrogant show-offs, women say, and also probably insecure. More than a third of ladies think “exotic” wheels mean a guy is compensating for something. You know who is not compensating for something? A guy with a Prius.
Candy That Doesn't Suck! Beer Flavored Lollipops Are Here
Although flavors like breast milk, sriracha bacon and wasabi-ginger might not necessarily sound all that appetizing, candy company Lollyphile has three new flavored lollipops that could really hit the spot on a hot summer day -- IPA, lager, and stout.
In addition to those sudsy suckers, the company also offers cocktail-flavored candy pops as well as cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay and merlot-flavored lollies.
“We tried our best to stay true to each of these varieties, Stout being big & dark, IPA being hoppy as hell, and Lager based on our favorite Pilsner,” Lollyphile owner Jason Darling told Gizmodo. “It was, to say the least, a very fun flavor matching experience.”
It sounds like it.
“The King of Lollipops! A real banquet lollipop! An All-American slam-dunk barbecue apple pie badass lollipop,” reads the lager’s description. “Perfect for basically everything, our Lager lollipop is based on Pilsners of, let's be honest, our collective youths.”
Lollyphile is a company with ties to San Francisco and Austin with a “sweet tooth and a short attention span.”
