Man told to go directly to jail without passing go after family Monopoly game night turns violent

Monopoly game night becomes real-life problem
If you have ever played Monopoly, then you know there is a chance of drawing a card that tells you to go directly to jail. Do not pass, go, and do not collect $200. A man in Oklahoma decided to turn a family game night into reality, as a game of Monopoly landed the man in jail after a dispute with his stepfather. According to the Tulsa Police Department, John Armstrong was drinking with relatives in Tulsa on Saturday when he started to fight with his stepdad over the game. During their fight, Armstrong and his stepfather knocked over the Monopoly board and overturned furniture. Another family member told the pair to take the fight outside. Taking it outside is what they did, and the men continued their fight. After getting cut on the head, Armstrong allegedly pulled out a gun. He proceeded to chase his stepdad and stepsister down the street, police said. Neighbors did state they heard a gunshot from the street. Armstrong admitted to police that he fired the gun once, but he shot “at the ground,” officials said. Police arrived at the scene, but they were not able to find the gun. Police believe Artmstrong hid...

Florida woman suing Velveeta for $5 million because her instant macaroni did not cook fast enough

Florida woman suing Velveeta for misrepresentation
There are a ton of lawsuits filed that make us shake our heads and wonder what these people are thinking, but a Florida woman suing Velveeta may win the wackiest lawsuit ever. The woman filed a class action lawsuit against Kraft Heinz’s cheesy instant macaroni product, Velveeta. Why the lawsuit? She claims the macaroni and cheese took too much time and steps to prepare, so she deserves $5 million. According to Insider, Amanda Ramirez mounted a class action lawsuit against Velveeta’s parent company Kraft Heinz Foods Company and has asked for up to $5 million. In the lawsuit, the Florida woman suing Velveeta claims that Velveeta did not take 3-and-a-half minutes to cook and that only the actual microwaving step took that long. In the court paperwork, Ramirez said, "The statement of 'ready in 3 1⁄2 minutes' is false and misleading because the Product takes longer than 3-and-a-half minutes to prepare for consumption. To provide consumers with a Product that is actually 'ready in 3 1⁄2 minutes,' the Product would need to be cooked in the microwave for less than 3-and-a-half minutes, so that all the preparation steps could be completed in the 3-and-a-half minutes timeframe." Ramirez states she felt...

Mariah Carey gets mixed reviews for Thanksgiving Day Parade performance

mariah carey
The Thanksgiving Day parade saw its share of interesting performances, but Mariah Carey stole the show, and not necessarily for all the right reasons.  The self-proclaimed “Queen of Christmas” closed the show with a rendition of “All I Want for Christmas.” She was festively decked out with a tulle mermaid-style bright red Christian Siriano gown and matching umbrella.  She was joined by dancers dressed as Nutcrackers as well as her 11-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, whom she shares with Nick Cannon. Monroe dressed as an angel while Moroccan danced with the nutcrackers.  .@MariahCarey opens for Santa Claus at the @Macys' Thanksgiving Day Parade with a killer performance of "All I Want For Christmas Is You"! 🎄pic.twitter.com/trXpKaJAkj — 𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐢𝐚𝐡 𝐀𝐜𝐜𝐞𝐬𝐬 🎄 (Fan Account) (@accessmimi) November 24, 2022 Carey did not join with the dancers but merely stood there lip-synching, causing viewers to take to the internet with equal amounts of praise and criticism.  “Mariah Carey is getting millions right now just to stand there with her umbrella, and honestly, I’m not mad.

World’s oldest cat gets new home with owner that’s the same age as she is

world's oldest cat
At 27 years old, Flossie has been declared the world’s oldest cat alive. The feline would be 189 if in human years, making her even older than the oldest human, French supercentenarian Jeanne Calmet, who is 122.  Flossie, who lives in London, is deaf and experiencing failing eyesight. However, she is described as “playful and sweet.” The cat was taken into a shelter but has recently found a new home with an owner who is also 27. The cat was born in 1995 and was found living with a group of stray cats near a hospital in Merseyside, England.  A hospital worker took her in, but she died ten years later.  Flossie then lived with her owner’s sister for 14 years. She eventually handed the cat over to her son, who cared for her for three years.   When the son could no longer keep the cat, he put her into the Cats Protection charity in Kent, where 27-year-old Vicki Green adopted her.  Breaking news...GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ have recognised Flossie as the World’s Oldest Cat! 😻🏆 She was adopted from our @CP_TwellsBranch and is 26 years old, which is over 120 human years!

Couple terrified after finding alien hand on beach

alien hand
A couple was terrified after finding the skeletal remains of what appeared to be an alien hand on the beach.  Leticia Gomez and her boyfriend Devanir Souza were strolling along the beach on the shores of Ilha Comprida, São Paulo State, Brazil, on November 20, when they came across the eerie discovery.  They filmed the incredibly large hand with long bony fingers next to Leticia’s flip-flop to illustrate how big it was.  "We think it is not human because of the size and amount of bones. What could it possibly be?” Leticia is heard to say in the clip.  “We don’t know what animal it is, and if it’s an alien, even worse,” she went on to speculate.  The video was posted on social media leading commenters to weigh in with their own opinions.  [caption id="attachment_2877" align="alignnone" width="1200"] A couple found skeletal remains along the beach on the shores of Ilha Comprida, São Paulo State, Brazil[/caption] “Looks like ET’s hand,” one said.  “Might as well be a dinosaur bone,” another wrote.  “Take it to a biologist because this isn’t normal,” a third suggested.  Marine biologist Eric Comin weighed in with his opinion speculating that the hand was likely to belong...
