Scarlett Johansson Still Doesn’t Understand Why It’s A Bad Idea For Her To Play A Transgender Character

Even after having months and months to think better of this and learn something from the controversy, Scarlett Johansson still doesn’t get it, apparently. One year after the Avengers: Endgame star dropped out of Rub and Tug, a movie in which she’d been slated to play transgender crime kingpin Dante ‘Tex’ Gill, she […]

Diminutive Bagel Shop Patron Goes on Tirade Against Women

It’s time to move over, Florida Man.

You must now officially make room for Long Island Man.

Or, to be more precise we suppose, you must make room for Short Long Island Man, based on a hilarious/disturbing new video that has gone very viral in a very short period of time.

In a video posted to Twitter this week, a woman is heard at the Bagel Boss shop in Bay Shore, New York, asking a middle-aged man wearing running shoes, shorts and a striped polo shirt why he thinks it’s acceptable to “degrade women.”

We don’t know the circumstances that prompted this question… only that it led to an epic tirade in response.

“Degrade – why is it okay for women to say, ‘Oh you’re five feet on dating sites, you should be dead,'” the man fires back as he hurls a newspaper he was holding to the floor. “That’s okay?”

Wait, what, the woman responds? No one at the store said anything like that.

“Women in general have said it on dating sites. You think I’m making that sh-t up,” the patron screams back while throwing his arms in the air. “Everywhere I go I get the same f-cking smirk with the biting lip.”

This is actually pretty sad.

The poor guy clearly has understandable self-esteem issues… which is not an excuse for the way he acted here. But it’s still something everyone viewing the footage ought to consider.

Another customer then interjects, telling the man to “calm down.”

But this has the opposite effect.

“Shut your mouth. You’re not God or my father or my boss,” he yells.

When another customer also tells the man to chill out, his anger only reaches a new level.

“Dude you want to step outside? You want to step outside? Huh? I’m not scare of you, pal.”

The third time, however, is NOT the charm for this guy.

After telling yet another patron to also “shut up” and challenging him to a fight, the bitter dating site user gets tackled to the grond. Hard.

As you might expect, and mostly understand, the Internet is having a field day with this video. To wit:

But we sort of have two different reactions:

FIRST, imagine if this were an overweight woman, responding in sadness and anger over how she is looked at by men. We somehow doubt folks would be mocking her in the same way.

SECOND, couldn’t you see this guy going on some sort of shooting spree in the near future?

Based on the domestic violence history of nearly all mass shooters, toxic masculinity is to blame for this epidemic as much as any other societal issue.

The guy already felt snubbed by the opposite sex. Now, he probably feels like the laughing stock of pretty much everyone out there. It’s scary to consider.

Check out the footage here and draw your own conclusion.

Ice Cream Licking Fiend Caught Tonguing Product in Grocery Store, Putting it Back on Shelf May Face 20 Years in Jail

Some people never pick the grocery item at the front, always choosing to grab something behind it. Those people are looking pretty smart right now.

A viral video shocked the nation last week when a girl filmed herself licking ice cream in a grocery store .. and then putting it back on the shelf.

Police have identified the prankster, but that’s only part of the problem. …

Ice cream licker still

Someone at Blue Bell Ice Cream HQ must have found a cursed monkey’s paw and wished “I hope that people go viral while enjoying our product.”

Last week, a video made the rounds on social media.

In the video, a young woman can be seen in a frozen section of a grocery store.

There, she removes the lid from a carton of Blue Bell Ice Cream, licks the surface of the ice cream, and then replaces the lid.

To the world’s horror, she then places the carton back in the freezer.

Ice cream licker not still

During the video, it sounds like a man — presumably the cameraman — is egging her on.

“Lick it,” the voice is heard saying. “Awww, you’re foul!”

“Put it back, put it back, put it back,” the voice then encourages her.

The carton is then replaces for some unsuspecting customer to purchase, take home, and possibly consume.

July is a hell of a time to ruin the very concept of ice cream for everyone.

Ice cream lid restored

After some initial confusion after a catfish Instagram account claimed responsibility, police believe that they have identified the culprit.

The girl in question is only 17 years old and is from San Antonio. She was 300 miles to the east, in Lufkin, Texas.

She was visiting her boyfriend at the time, and police say that she and the boyfriend have cooperated with them about the incident.

While it will be up to prosecutors and the court to determine what comes next, what happened on video is a crime.

She may face a second-degree felony charge of tampering with a consumer product.

That could land a perpetrator in prison for 2-to-20 years, though her status as a minor and her cooperative attitude may help her avoid that fate.

Blue bell ice cream

Countless ice cream tubs have been removed from shelves out of an abundance of caution following this incident.

It has brought to people’s attention that Blue Bell Ice Cream does not have a tangible seal.

Rather, Blue Bell has explained that the way that the ice cream is frozen and boxed is designed to form a natural seal.

That’s great, but a one-time removable seal might prevent someone from digging into ice cream that has been licked by a stranger.

Some have called upon Blue Bell to change their packaging.

Blue bell seal statement

Why do people want the packaging changed even though the lone perpetrator was caught?

In part because they fear this happening again.

And those fears may hold some degree of validity — as a number of copycat incidents have been filmed.

Some are calling this the “Ice cream challenge,” as people film themselves licking ice cream for clout.

However, as with the Tide Pod Challenge before it, there is something that people should know about these copycat videos.

A single blue bell carton

See, the majority of these videos that you’ll see if you look up ice cream lickers are … well, they’re fake.

You can buy an ice cream, film yourself licking it in the aisle, put it in the freezer, and then remove it when you stop filming.

Store employees may be annoyed with you, but that doesn’t really sound like a crime.

It’s always good to remember that not everything that you see on the internet is really happening.

Unfortunately, there are always a few people who not only believe that it’s all real, but that they should be the next ones to try it out.

You know what’s a great dessert all throughout the year? Pie. Maybe just eat some pie, and give ice cream a break for a few weeks.
