A 23-year-old guy was driving through a safari park in England recently, and dropped his phone.  Park officials told him to stay inside his car, but eventually returned it.  When they did, the guy realized an ELEPHANT had accidentally taken a SELFIE on it.  Seriously.

• You overhear the guy complimenting his wife by saying, “The beard looks nice today.”
• Every Saturday night ‘Monkey Boy’ passes out on your lawn.

Unless you're a communist, you'll probably eat between one and 17 burgers this weekend.  So what are you gonna put on it?  A not-very-exciting new survey had Americans rank 10 of the most popular burger toppings.  And coming in at number one was . . . KETCHUP.   For some reason, CHEESE wasn't one of the choices.  I guess that would technically make it a cheeseburger, so maybe that's why they left it off the list?  We're not sure.  Anyway, here are the top 10 most popular burger toppings, in order:  Ketchup, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, mustard, pickles, mayo, bacon, mushrooms, and barbecue sauce.  I think we can assume that if they'd included cheese as an option, it would've been number one.   (ABC News)

Jon Bon Jovi reportedly wants to buy the Buffalo Bills and move the NFL team to Toronto—but angry Western New Yorkers are fighting back. A group calling itself 12th Man Thunder is calling for all Buffalo businesses to ban Bon Jovi from their establishments, WGRZ reports. What does that mean? USA Today has the group's rules: Bars, clubs, DJs, and bands will not play Bon Jovi songs—including on the jukebox—and Bon Jovi himself will not be allowed inside any businesses. More than 60 businesses have signed on.

Dieting can be pretty antisocial.  It's harder to go out for dinner, it's harder to go to parties . . . and it's hard because you might be making the people around you feel like LAZY SLOBS.  So this makes a lot of sense.  A new study found that for every seven pounds you lose on a diet, you ALSO lose one FRIEND.  The study included more than 2,500 people who dieted in the past 18 months . . . and 81% said they'd lost at least one friend in the process.  65% said they'd lost a friend because the friend was jealous . . . and 53% said they'd lost a friend because the lifestyle changes they made during the diet drove them apart.  But . . . it's a sacrifice almost ALL of them would make again.  92% say losing weight made a, quote, "significant positive impact" on their life . . . regardless of the friends they lost.

You know how it's common to get sick after taking a flight? Well, there's a very good reason why. And it doesn't have anything to do with the guy sitting next to you who coughed for five hours.New research shows that deadly germs can live in plane cabins (on upholstery, tray tables, metal buttons, toilet handles, armrests, etc.) for up to a week (because of the dry air).So even though airlines claim they clean the inside of the plane after you leave, you should always carry hand sanitizer and wet wipes with you to clean off anything you're planning on touching. Your immune system will thank you for it. (CBS)  

And one more thing....PLEASE keep your feet to yourself. Bare feet don't belong on the back of the chair in front of you. It's gross.

Merriam-Webster is adding over 150 words to the newest edition of its "Collegiate Dictionary".  And as usual, things that have to do with technology and the internet tend to dominate.  Here are the top 13 new internet and tech words . . .  
1. Hashtag. 
2.  Selfie.  In November, the Oxford English Dictionary named "selfie" the Word of the Year.  Although Webster's went with"science".) 
3. Hot spot . . . as in a WiFi hot spot. 
4.  Big data.  Which they define as, quote, "an accumulation of data that is too large and complex for processing by traditional database management tools."
 5.  Auto-Tune. 
6.  Crowdfunding . . . when you raise money through websites like Kickstarter. 
7.  Dubstep.  That's the electronic music that pretty much requires a computer to create. 
8.  E-waste . . . which is anything tech-related that you throw away.
9.  Social networking. 
10.  Tweep . . . a person who uses Twitter. 
11.  Catfish . . . as in someone "catfishes" you online, and pretends to be someone they're not. 
12.  Fangirl.  Obviously it's the female version of fanboy.  As in, a girl who's WAY too into something.  They're both kind of an online phenomenon. 
13.  Spoiler alert.  
But there are actually a few words that DON'T deal directly with technology and the internet. The top seven are:  
1.  Baby bump. 
2.  Fracking. 
3.  Freegan.  That's, quote, "an activist who scavenges for free food . . . as in waste receptacles at stores and restaurants . . . as a means of reducing consumption of resources." 
4.  Gamification . . . where you add game elements to something that ISN'T a game to make more people interested in it. 
5.  Steampunk . . . which is, quote, "science fiction dealing with 19th-century societies dominated by historical or imagined steam-powered technology." 
6.  Turducken . . . "a boneless chicken stuffed into a boneless duck stuffed into a boneless turkey." 
7.  Yooper . . . a native of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

I know us gals spend a lot of money on make-up and beauty stuff.  But I didn't know it was THIS much.   According to a new study by the makers of Vaseline, the average woman WASTES over $300,000 worth of beauty products in her lifetime.  Women buy 6,495 different products, including 840 moisturizers, 360 nail polishes, and 300 lipsticks . . . and only use 10% of them.  So, they spend about $330,000 total, and 90% of the stuff doesn't get used.  The five things women waste the most are nail polish, shampoo, lipstick, perfume, and shower gel.  But one thing that DOESN'T go to waste is deodorant.  The average woman uses it three times a day.  The study also found that men buy 960 beauty products over their lifetime, or about 12 a year.  And they use ALL OF THEM.  Plus, one in four men admit they sometimes use their wife's stuff.

SANTANA says PITBULL is like this generation's QUEEN or ROLLING STONES, which is pretty hilarious . . . except for the fact that he WASN'T JOKING.  Now to be fair, Santana isn't equating Pitbull's songwriting prowess to those groups, necessarily . . . he's speaking more to the fact that Pitbull's overplayed tracks are great at pumping people up at sporting events.  He says, quote, "Everything that [Pitbull] does becomes like halftime at the Super Bowl, or the NBA.  He's like the new Queen and Rolling Stones of today . . .  "Because every time you want your team to pick up the energy, they play that music, y'know?  So that's what Pitbull is:  He's, like, the arena energy person!"

Surprise! Researchers from the University of Bristol found in a study that booze really does make you find people more attractive than you would if you were sober. Yes, beer goggles are real— even though most of us have already learned this the hard way. Thanks, science!Some participants in the study were given an alcoholic drink, while others were given a booze-free placebo. After that, they were shown images of human faces and of landscapes. The group that was given alcohol gave higher attractiveness ratings to both types of images.The research team insists that even though the study makes everyone giggle, it also points to some important risk factors. When a person is more likely to think everyone around them is smokin’ hot, they’re more likely to have unprotected sex or be talked into something (sexual or otherwise) that they may be uncomfortable with.According to the study, the part of the brain responsible for sexytime keeps functioning until we pass out, no matter how drunk we get. So the root of the change in attraction may have less to do with someone actually appearing hotter to you, and more to do with the fact that your decision-making skills and inhibits have melted (while your libido hasn’t budged).This is around the time that I’d wonder whether people will test out this theory in bars “for research,” but actually, the study’s leaders will be doing exactly that. They’re extending their research and will carry out tests over four nights in Bristol pubs. Essentially, they’ll be getting paid to party – how’s that for a dream job?

Every year Salary.com does a study to determine exactly what a stay-at-home mom deserves to be paid in an annual salary − and this year, the calculation is roughly $119,000.The people responsible for the survey found that the job of "mom" is actually made up of 10 different jobs  − each with a different salary. They then figured how many hours per week were spent on each, and did the math.Those jobs are: housekeeper, day care teacher, cook, laundry operator, janitor, computer operator, psychologist, facilities manager, van driver, and CEO.FYI: The salary for a working mom would be about $70,000 (on top of her regulary salary).

– Spotify has put an end to a small band's ingenious plan to milk it for money with a silent album—but not before that album racked up a five-figure royalty check. In case you missed it, last month a band called Vulfpeck createda silent album called "Sleepify," and urged fans to play it on repeat all night while they slept. The band only has about a thousand fans, but they were able to not-listen hard enough to earn the band $20,000 in royalties, Gawker reports.Spotify ended the party a few weeks ago—which Vulfpeck revealed in a gimmick three-track EP. Spotify told him that "while they enjoy Sleepify and thought it was funny and clever, it violated their terms of content," frontman Jack Stratton said in a spoken track called "#Hurt." The next track is 30 seconds of silence. Stratton tells Vice that Spotify hasn't paid up yet, but he assumes it will, and he's not worried about any repercussions from the stunt. "You have to be practicing yoga and eating grass-fed butter to face the coldness of the free market," he says.  (NEWSER)

You've all heard of the "prom-posal" by now, when guys do over-the-top invites to ask girls to the prom. Well, some students at a California high school are doing the opposite of that ... and it's downright sexist.The boys over at Corona Del Mar High School have a longstanding tradition of picking their prom dates through an NFL-style draft. Yep, the guys make their "picks" from a pool of potential dates. They even encourage the female "free agents" to dress to impress in the hopes of getting a prom date.Though the draft isn't affiliated with the school in any way, the principal has finally had enough and is trying to shut this practice down, claiming that it objectifies women. But one female student begs to differ: “I am part of the draft and am friends with many girls in the draft and yes, in some instances girls can be picked by appearance. It is all just a fun way to decide who you will be going to prom with. It is not meant to harm those who are picked and I do not believe that it does. It is not, was never, and will never ever be used to objectify the girls at our school.” WOW. (OC Register)

Sinko de Mayo is truly a day to celebrate. Few people have come to know the “true” story of the origin of Sinko de Mayo. It is my pleasure to set the record straight.A little known fact is that back in 1912, Hellmann’s mayonnaise was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York. This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico but as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York.The ship hit an iceberg and sank and the cargo was forever lost. The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise and were eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning which they still observe to this day. The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known, of course as Sinko de Mayo. Go out on this day grab a couple of slices of Wonderbread and a jar of Hellman’s mayonnaise and have a party.

 It's still legal to talk on your phone while you're driving in Florida.  But one guy decided to take matters into his OWN hands.  Back in 2011, a 60-year-old named Jason Humphreys put a cell phone JAMMING device in his car, so no one around him on the road could make phone calls.  And he thought it only worked within 30 feet.  But it turned out that during his commute to and from work in Tampa, he was also jamming a cell phone TOWER.  And after the company that owns the tower complained last year, police were able to pinpoint the signal and pull him over.  And when they did, they knew it was him . . . because the device also jammed their police RADIOS.  They eventually found it hidden under the passenger's seat.  Unfortunately for Jason, using a cell phone jammer is a FEDERAL CRIME.  And prosecutors went for the maximum penalty, so he's now facing a $48,000 fine.  (MyFoxNY / Tampa Tribune / Daily Mail)
