A new survey by BabyNameWizard.com asked people to pick the SEXIEST NAMES . . . and almost all of them are super exotic.

The ten sexiest names for men are: Alessandro . . . Lorenzo . . . Rhett . . . Romeo . . . Mateo . . . Dimitri . . . Dane . . . Marcelo . . . Dante . . . and Remy.

The ten sexiest names for women are: Scarlett . . . Nicolette . . . Natalia . . . Anais (ah-nye-is) . . . Paulina . . . Alessandra . . . Chanel . . . Soraya . . . Adrianna . . . and Guiliana.

Shout out to both Rhett and Scarlett for making the list, even though "Gone With the Wind" is almost 80 years old. Also, five of the men's names end in "o" and six of the women's names end in "a." We're not sure what that means.

The survey also found the five LEAST SEXY names for men and women.

For men, it's . . . Bob . . . Ernest . . . Norman . . . Dick . . . and Howard.

For women it's . . . Gertrude . . . Bertha . . . Agnes . . . Ethel . . . and Mildred.

The company that found a way to replace a bun with two pieces of fried chicken has taken it up a notch . . . and found a way to replace a cup with a cookie.

KFC just announced it's about to start selling the world's first EDIBLE COFFEE CUP. It's made out of cookies, and both the inside and outside are covered in a heat-resistant white chocolate.

That keeps the cookie part solid, and the coffee hot. Then as you drink from it, the chocolate slowly melts . . . and you can start eating the cookie. From the photos we've seen, it's more like a sugar cookie than a chocolate cookie.

And now the tragic news . . . it only comes out later this year at KFC locations in the U.K.

That being said, this invention seems FAR too appealing to stay confined over there . . . I'd be shocked if we didn't get a crack at it someday.

You could buy a box of Girl Scout cookies right now for like four bucks, which seems like a reasonable price for a box of delicious and professionally-made cookies.

Or . . . you could spend 15 times that so your kid can bake their OWN Girl Scout cookies that won't taste as good. Interested?

A company called Wicked Cool Toys is working with the Girl Scouts to release an Easy Bake Oven-style toy that will let kids bake Girl Scout cookies at home . . . using the power of just a special light bulb.

The oven comes with the mix you'll need to make Thin Mints . . . you can also buy mixes for other cookies like Trefoils and Peanut Butter Sandwiches.

The oven will go on sale this fall for $59.99 . . . plus $6.99 to $14.99 for more mixes.

One of the top-ranked competitive eaters in the world, San Jose, California's Matt "Megatoad" Stonie, has set a smoking new record: hoovering up 182 slices of Smithfield Brand Bacon in just five minutes on Sunday.

"Out of the millions of Bacon Lovers out there, I love Bacon the most," Matt's posted, on his Facebook wall after the sizzling feat. "Disagree? I got the #'s on my side."

According to Smithfield, the meat company that sponsored the event in Daytona, Florida, Stonie consumed around 73 hundred calories, more than 28,000 milligrams of sodium, and 1,820 milligrams of cholesterol.

The only thing that's weird about this business is that no one thought of it sooner.

There's a new toy company called Cuddle Clones that will make you a stuffed animal replica of your PET. You send them some photos and information, and they send you back a stuffed animal that looks as similar to your pet as possible.

They do dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, pigs, horses . . . you name it. And based on the photos we've seen, they're actually pretty accurate.

You can do it to get a stuffed version of a pet that's still alive . . . maybe to take on vacation, or send to college with your emotionally-stilted child.

Or you can do it to get a stuffed version of a DEAD pet . . . which is creepy, but still way less creepy than going to a taxidermist.

You can order yours at CuddleClones.com. It starts at $199 for dogs and cats, and they've already got so many orders that people who get in now will probably have to wait until July to get their stuffed animals.

If you're unemployed and need a job, or just looking for a career change, there's a great position open in the U.K. But you'll have to be OK with who you'll be working for.

Buckingham Palace is looking for a chauffeur to drive Queen Elizabeth around. Her Majesty has lots of errands to run, like buying new hats, and needs someone with "strong attention to detail," the ability to "remain calm under pressure," "professional driving experience" and a valid U.K. driver's license. The gig pays $37,000 a year but comes with living accommodations, 33 vacation days and a pretty sweet ride. (People)

Just when you think our society has reached peak bacon levels . . . BAM! Someone finds a new way to bacon up our food.

Little Caesars just announced their brand new BACON-WRAPPED PIZZA..It's a deep-dish pizza, and the bacon kind of wraps around the pizza crust along the sides. It's thick-cut bacon, and they say it takes three-and-a-half FEET of bacon to wrap the entire pizza. Each pizza is eight slices, and each slice including the bacon is 450 calories. They're going to start selling it on Monday, and it'll be around through late April. Unless it's a hit . . . then you might see bacon-wrapped pizza FOREVER. Or at least until it kills us all.

In 1930, Hollywood adopted the Motion Picture Production Code to clean up the FILTH that was flooding theater screens. And it included a lot of restrictions that seem ridiculous by today's standards. Here are seven of them:

1. Nudity was banned even in SILHOUETTE.

2. You couldn't show divorce or adultery in an attractive light.

3. Most curse words were banned.

4. Kisses couldn't be "lustful," and they couldn't last more than three seconds.

5. Lovers weren't allowed to be horizontal . . . one person had to keep one foot on the floor at all times.

6. Beds weren't allowed to accommodate more than one person.

7. Even actors playing married couples had to be shown sleeping in separate beds.

The code was abandoned in 1968 for the ratings system they use today.

A 92-year-old guy in Wisconsin crashed into NINE CARS on his way out of a parking lot on Friday. He told police that his foot got stuck on the gas, and he just panicked. Which doesn't really make sense, since he stopped in the middle and went into reverse.

It's not clear if he'll lose his license, but he's not facing any charges. Luckily no one was hurt.

This year is the 80th Anniversary of Monopoly - the iconic board game which has sold over 275 million units worldwide since its release.

Chasing the big bucks and bankrupting your friends is as popular as ever but there’s much more to this old timer than meets the eye.

Take a look at our run down of 10 amazing Monopoly facts and never look at Park Lane the same way again!

1. Over six billion little green houses have been “constructed” since the Monopoly board game was first introduced in 1935.

2. The shifty looking guy behind bars is called Jake the Jailbird. The officer who sends him to jail is called Edgar Mallory.

3. In 1978, the Neiman Marcus Christmas catalogue offered a chocolate version of the game priced at $599.99.

4. More Monopoly money is printed every year than real money. Pity it can’t be exchanged!

5. The longest Monopoly game in history lasted for 70 straight days.

6. Think you’re a bit good at Monopoly? Then test out your trading skills at the official World Championship Tournament which takes place in the USA every few years.

7. Mr Monopoly’s real name is the rather fitting ‘Rich Uncle Pennybags’.

8. In 1975 four students in California played Monopoly for 44 consecutive days underwater.

9. The famous playing pieces were inspired by charm bracelets.

10. A braille version was created in the 1970s.

DON MCLEAN is auctioning off the original, handwritten lyrics to his super long 1971 song "American Pie" . . . because he needs the money.

He says, quote, "I'm going to be 70 this year. I have two children and a wife, and none of them seem to have the mercantile instinct. I want to get the best deal that I can for them. It's time."

The auction house estimates the lyrics could go for up to $1.5 MILLION. They're written on a 16-page document that's never been seen publicly before. It features, quote, "237 lines of manuscript, and 26 lines of typed text."

The auction is scheduled to go down on April 7th. And this is just the beginning.

Don says, quote, "I'm going to rid myself of a lot of stuff. In a year or two, I'm going to have a big auction with guitars, clothes, boots, saddles, silver and watches. I collect a lot of stuff. It's time to let other people have it."

In anticipation of the release of 50 Shades of Grey, a hardware store in England has told its workers to be ready for a higher than normal demand for such things as rope, cable ties and duct tape.

The Telegraph published a leaked memo from hardware chain B&Q that told workers to be prepared for “sensitive” questions from customers about certain products.

The memo, titled "Staff Briefing – Preparation for Fifty Shades of Grey Customer Queries," also said that stores would be getting copies of the book that employees could take and read so they would be familiar with it and could then deal with any questions in a "polite, helpful and respectful manner."

Remember searching through "Where's Waldo?" books, trying to find that annoying a-hole with his red-and-white shirt and his taunting grin? Math will make it WAY easier on YOUR kids.

A mathematician named Randal Olson analyzed Waldo's location in the "Where's Waldo?" books to figure out the optimal strategy for searching for him.

You should start on the bottom of the left page. If he's not there, he's probably not on the left page at all.

After that, head to the upper half of the right page . . . especially the upper right corner.

If you still haven't found him, he's probably near the bottom right quarter of the right page.

Olson found Waldo is almost NEVER in the top left corner of the left page, or the bottom left corner of the right page. And he's rarely along the edges of any page.

NEWSER) – The Grammys were held last night with AC/DC opening the show with a performance and host LL Cool J skipping the full monologue to instead hand the stage over to Taylor Swift, who presented the first award. Best New Artistwent to Sam Smith, who kept his acceptance speech blissfully short.

  • Another performance, of course, by Ariana Grande, followed by Jessie J and Tom Jones dueting on "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'." The duo then presented Best Pop Solo Performance to Pharrell Williams for "Happy." The producers are apparently not messing around—Williams got played off the stage after, by one Twitter user's estimation, 15 seconds.

  • After Dierks Bentley introduced Miranda Lambert for a performance, Best Pop Vocal Album went to In the Lonely Hour by Sam Smith. He again managed to keep things short and sweet enough to avoid getting played off.

  • Kanye West performed, singing (with Auto-Tune) the entire time with not a rap in sight. Then a bunch of dancers dressed as, apparently, bulls took the stage for a Madonna performance, which would explain her red carpet outfit.

  • Best Rock Album was presented to Beck for Morning Phase. He got played off.

  • Best R&B Performance went to Beyonce for "Drunk in Love," featuring hubby Jay Z. She was, of course, not played off, though she did keep things pretty short.

  • After an Ed Sheeran-John Mayer performance, Jeff Lynne's ELO performed (and got Paul McCartney up dancing and singing along in the audience). And then it was time for the unholy union of Adam Levine and Gwen Stefani performing a Maroon 5 song.

  • Oh, you thought there might be another award right about now? No. Instead, Hozier performed "Take Me to Church," joined by Annie Lennox. Then a Jonas brother and the "All About That Bass" lady presented Best Country Album to Platinum by Miranda Lambert.

  • And then, yes, another performance: Pharrell Williams' "Happy," with a strangely ominous intro.

  • Then it was time for a prerecorded message from President Obama, calling for an end to violence againstwomen and girls, followed by an impassioned speech by domestic violence survivor and activist Brooke Axtell and a performance of "By the Grace of God" from Katy Perry.

  • Thanks to what was apparently a very, very long Target commercial, the world then watched Imagine Dragons perform from somewhere in Las Vegas (i.e., not the Grammy stage). Back at the Grammys, Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett performed a duet.

  • Hey, look, it's LL Cool J! The host made a triumphant return to the stage to introduce Usher's performance of a Stevie Wonder tribute. Then, yes, another performance (Eric Church, "Give Me Back My Hometown"). It had been approximately 44 minutes since the last award was handed out. But instead of handing out another one, Brandy Clark performed, followed by a collaboration: Rihanna, Kanye West (still singing instead of rapping, but this time apparently sans Auto-Tune), and Paul McCartney.

  • Closing in on an hour with no actual awards being given out, Taylor Swift presented Sam Smith performing with Mary J. Blige, which was followed by yet another performance (Latin rock star Juanes singing "Juntos").

  • Finally, an hour and seven minutes later, another award: Prince presented Album of the Year to Beck for Morning Phase. Beck got played off again. (And apparently almost got Kanyed by Kanye.)

  • Shia LaBeouf, for some reason, took the stage to introduce a very confusing performance of Sia's "Chandelier," apparently featuring Kristen Wiig and interpretive dance. Song of the Year then went to—surprise, surprise—Sam Smith for "Stay With Me."

  • Chris Martin and Beck teamed up for a performance, thenRecord of the Year went to, yes, Sam Smith again for "Stay With Me." He thanked his ex for breaking his heart "because you got me four Grammys."

  • It's worth mentioning that pretty much every other commercial is Matthew McConaughey hawking Lincoln cars.

  • After the "In Memoriam" segment, as the official end time of 11:30pm neared and it became increasingly unclear whether there were actual awards remaining to be handed out or whether viewers were just waiting for more Grammy officials to talk about copyright law, Twitter began to wonder if the show will actually go until midnight.

  • No, there were no more awards to be handed out. Gwyneth Paltrow introduced her "beautiful friend" Beyonce singing a hymn, John Legend and Common performed "Glory," and the Grammys ended, with absolutely no farewell words from LL Cool J, nine minutes past schedule.

Budweiser's famous Clydesdales welcomed a new addition to their family on Super Bowl Sunday.

Moments before Budweiser's "Lost Dog" commercial aired during the big game, a new baby Clydesdale was born at Budweiser's Warm Springs Ranch in Boonville, Missouri, where the company raises the horses. And in honor of Super Bowl 49, the horse was given the name Arizona.

Baby Arizona will spend a couple of months with his parents and will join the rest of the Clydesdales in the spring to begin training. And who knows, maybe we'll see him in next year's Super Bowl commercial. (People)
