The head of a Russian village lost his bid for re-election when he was defeated by… HIS CLEANING LADY! But it gets better. Nikolai Loktev was running unopposed, but local election rules require there to be two candidates, so he asked his cleaning lady to challenge him, just so the election could go forward. He never ever expected her to win, but she did — in a landslide. Marina Udgodskaya was shocked by the results and told the BBC, “I didn’t think people would actually vote for me. I didn’t do anything at all!” (AND her office is immaculate!)
A Florida man ended up behind bars after a ridiculous fight with his roommate — which started when he insisted that regular milk was superior to almond milk. Justin Garcia became angry when his friend strongly stated that almond milk was much better than regular cow milk. It grew into a fist fight and a knife was even pulled! Cops were called and broke up the fight. Justin became REALLY agitated when he got to jail…they only had almond milk.
Mashable claims a Brooklyn pizzeria has added a new menu item in the form of ‘comforting words.’ The menu at Vinnie’s reads : “For $1, our delivery driver will look you straight in the eyes and tell you ‘EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE OK AND YOU’RE DOING THE BEST YOU CAN.’ (Which is OK, as long as that dollar comes with extra garlic knots.)
