Never mind Elf on a Shelf, how about “Coal in a Bowl?!”

The Sun says Bekki Cocks, of Manchester, England, recently married her favorite rug. She wore a traditional white wedding gown before exchanging vows. She says, “I bought “him” about a year ago and I’ve been banging on about how much I love him. It became a bit of a thing with my friends who used to joke ‘if you love it so much, why don’t you marry him? So I did,” By the way, and I’m not making this up, his name, is Matt.

NBC says Anheuser-Busch and 896 couples recently set a new world record for the most people kissing under a mistletoe. The brewer had people in Colorado, Missouri and Merrimack, New Hampshire kiss under a mistletoe. They beat the old record of 839 couples.

And finally,

If you’re about to go out and buy an Elf on the Shelf, hold on…this might be better! The Delco Times says that Joshua Murphy, of Aston, Pennsylvania, has created a new way to get kids to behave during the holiday season with, “Coal in a Bowl.” The white bowl has menacing black eyes and a frown on the front. It is filled with coal and topped with a red Santa hat. Each Coal in a Bowl comes with a letter that reads, “Your grandparents might have told you stories about getting coal in their stockings at Christmas because they were not very good that year. Every night, my job is to report back to Santa and let him know if you are a good boy or girl that day.” so, it’s a new and fun way to terrorize your children into behaving.

Pizza, topped with hot dogs?!

Pizza, topped with hot dogs?!

The Sun Sentinel claims a python catching contest is going to take place prior to the Super Bowl being held in South Florida. Members of the public will register for the 2020 Python Bowl before heading into the Everglades to catch Burmese pythons. Prizes will be awarded for the heaviest snake, the longest snake and most caught snakes. The pythons are destroying the native life in the Everglades.

Speaking of snake-like creatures, how’s this for a cool holiday decoration? At the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga, they’ve connected a Christmas tree to the tank of an electric eel. When the eel releases a jolt of electricity, the tree lights up and makes some noise so people can run over and enjoy the spectacle. (Fox News)

And finally,

When it comes to junk food, if you can’t decide between pizza or hot dogs? Head on over to South Korea! Papa Johns locations in South Korea are now offering the “American Hot Dog Pizza,” featuring a hot dog embedded into every single slice! Instagram advertisements appear to show the pizza served alongside pickles, mustard and ketchup, as well. This is why I don’t travel to other countries.

The poo thief.

The poo thief.

The NY Post says AirAsia recently opened a restaurant in Malaysia that sells the same pre-packaged meals offered on their flights. The airline plans to open 100 similar restaurants by 2025. General manager Catherine Goh says, “We have seen a significant appetite for our in-flight menu offerings beyond our flights across the region, and this is our answer to that demand.”  I wonder if the bathrooms in the restaurant are the same size as on a plane….just for the full experience.

After two packages were stolen from a Missouri family’s porch in less than a week, they decided enough was enough. The family from Hazelwood, had security footage that showed the same thief was coming to their porch and stealing packages. The mom got revenge, she put two dirty diapers in an Amazon package, sealed them up, put them outside. A day later, the thief returned, and took the package full of well, you know. The cops were also able to catch the thief via a doorbell cam.

And finally,

A Canadian man who struck a dog with his vehicle did the right thing and took care of the poor pooch — only it wasn’t actually a dog. It was a coyote. He got out to check on the animal and saw it was clearly injured. So he picked it up, placed it in the backseat of his car and drove it to work. When he got to work, he had a co-worker come out to look at the dog, and he realized right away that it was actually a wild coyote. The coyote survived because he was a super genius.
