It’s the end of another working week. You know what that means. It’s time to take our protein pills, put our helmet on, and take a wild wacky world of weirdness. Strap your seat belts because it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Let’s start things with…

1. Wanted man lured from six hour standoff with…McDonald’s

Via Mirror

How’s this for a happy meal?

In Grimsby, England, a wanted man was lured down from a six hour rooftop standoff after police promised him a meal from McDonald’s, the Grimsby Telegraph reports.

At one point, the suspect was throwing slates at police.

The man was wanted by the Humberside Police for burglary and theft. He was arrested for possession of a deadly weapon and currently remains in custody.

One of the witnesses at the scene said “The police seemed to know exactly what they were doing. There was a cordon but rather than risk anything they just waited it out. He was bound to get cold or hungry and had nowhere else to go. I heard the negotiator speaking to him about a McDonald’s. He said he wanted one and they told him he could have one if he came down. They had already refused to let someone through with a Burger King. It wasn’t long after that, that he climbed down.”

That being said, no one, and we mean no one can resist the crispy, unhealthy, delicious goodness of McDonald’s French fries. It’s the key to world peace.


2. Police are looking for a man suspected to be “pleasuring” himself during “The Emoji Movie” because Y tho

The Emoji Movie seems like a steaming pile of horse manure trying to masquerade as a passable children’s movie. It has a 6% rotten rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with the Village Voice’s Bilge Ebiri calling the movie “boldly bad, yes, but also boldly boring.” Well, some people might like the film, and one man from New Jersey liked it a bit tooooooo much. So much so that he decided to jack off to a bunch of CGI emojis.

In a July 8 screening of the movie in the Xscape movie theatre, a mother with her children and friends noticed the man with his pants unbuttoned and with his down his pants. He was seated alone in the theater’s back row.

The woman reported the incident to management, and the man was escorted out of the movie theatre. Police were called later in the day, and have also released an image of the man taken from the theater’s surveillance camera.

Upon hearing the news, The Emoji Movie star TJ Miller tweeted the following:

Yeah, no thanks.


3. People are getting burned from glitter-filled iPhone cases

Buzzfeed reports that people have been suffering from skin irritation and chemical burns from glitter-filled iPhone cases. The cases are currently being recalled.

Speaking to Buzzfeed, one of the victims said she suffered a burn on her leg while her phone was in her pocket when she was at work. She said her injury took a month to heal. Another victim said she woke up from a nap because she felt her arm was burning.

Here’s an idea: how about we DON’T fill phone cases with weird liquids and chemicals that might burn people? Just a thought? No. Being trendy is more important? Ok then.


4. Dad of the year awards Employee of the Week Award to dogs

Doggos, floofs, and puppers should be recognized for all the hard work they do to make us squeal from all their too-pure-for-this-world cuteness. And one dad is doing just that.

Twitter user @_illdill_ tweeted about how his dad goes the extra mile in rating dogs. His dad goes from house to house for his flooring business. When the family pet is around during his business hours, he names them the employee of the week.

On the Stairfaces and Josephsen Hardwood Floors page, you can see all the proud dogs worthy of winning the prestigious award.
