Sunday Morning News: 24/7 Cupcake ATM, Naked Yoga, Skydiving Cats, & Twinkies

 Cupcake Machine

When I found this first news video, I wished I lived in Beverly Hills (Ohh! Is Luke Perry there? Is it 1995 again?) so that I could get a cupcake from an all night machine. The cupcake ATM is a novelty…Like when we were in London and came across a liquor vending machine. It’s like requisite take-photos-in-front-of-this-thing thing.

Seriously. How cool is that?

Naked Yoga

In a follow up news video to last week’s Ban on Public Nudity, I found this gem, a naked yoga class open to both men and women. Not to be all obnoxious and embarrassing, but sign me up. The yogi said it perfectly when he told the camera, “If you’ve ever been skinny dipping, you’ll never want to wear a bathing suit again. It feels so comfortable; so natural.” I have to agree. It’s not about showing off or looking at naked-ness…it’s just about being comfortable. So I think I’d dig naked yoga. Once I lose about 50 pounds.

 Skydiving Cats…Or Not?

In Sweden, an insurance company has created a commercial with skydiving cats who, gasp are high-fiving mid-air! Check this out.

OK, maybe it’s movie magic…but still high-fiving skydiving cats?! It’s a no-brainer.

Twinkies in the News

As many of you may know, Twinkies, and the other treats created by Hostess Bakery, may be on their way out the door. With Hostess claiming bankruptcy for the 2nd time in less than a decade…things aren’t looking too good for the spongy cakes.

I have a strong connection to Twinkies, as my buddy Cletus and I were often voted as “Twinkies” in our fraternity, considering we were always together-two in a pack. So it was no surprise that on graduation day, Cletus walked up to me with a pack of Twinkies. These were individually packaged, which was good, because the only place I had to put it was in my bra. We sat next to each other, cracking jokes and eating Twinkies as some random speaker asked us to donate money to Bradley. Cletus and I wrote a post-dated check for $1.00 signed from the both of us. Bradley cashed the check.

Back to Twinkies: These are not your typical videos. These are not boring old news. Watch them. Watch them and laugh. Twinkie hot dogs with cheese whiz? A delicious log of joy? Cockroaches and Twinkies? Yes. Yes. and Yes.

I’m not going to lie, I included the next video just because of the Ghostbusters Twinkie reference.

What is a Twinkie?

That’s the news for this week. Did you see something funny in the news? I’d love to include it in a future Sunday Morning News post. Send the link to QuirkyChrissy@gmail.com.

Sunday Morning News: Ban on Public Nudity, Penguin Invasions, and Stoner Dogs

It’s hard to believe that yet another week has gone by and it’s almost socially acceptable for me to put up my Christmas trees! (If you want a Christmas card from yours truly, send an e-mail with your info to quirkychrissy @ gmail.)

This week, I’ve come across some fun and interesting news articles to share with you. I hope that you’ll find them as enlightening and amusing as I did…

First on the list is public nudity in San Francisco. Why. Did. I. Not. Know. About. This? No pants? That sounds like an awesome idea. Why they want to ban it is beyond me. Let people run free. Without pants. Damn the man; save the empire!

Just let the naked guys be naked in peace.

This next bit of news is for my bestie in the whole world, Katie Belle. She writes at Words for Worms and you should read it because she’s fantastic. She has a slight penguin obsession (Read: HUGE LOVE OF PENGUINS). In this tricky situtation, endangered penguins have invaded a South African town. I think Katie would love it… Am I right?

Who doesn’t love penguins indeed?

With the legalization of marijuana in two states this election year, it’s not surprising that I came across this vid. While I may not have ever partaken of the get-Buck-stoned campaign…but I do know that my old dog was, on occasion, high. Of course, this was hilarious to all who witnessed it…and more often than not, it wasn’t even because of the weed. Veternarian prescribed doggie downers cause the same stoned-dog results…As Buck was a bit on the scaredy dog side during storms…fireworks…loud noises…lots of people…he often needed a little…calming down. So, if you’re really looking to chill your pup out…talk to the vet, and save the dope for your human pals.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! GO BEARS!
