Team Philippines sent 19 athletes to Tokyo and if anyone else can bring home a gold medal, they will also get a fat check and a new home.

To promote their new electric Mach-E GT, Ford has created a fragrance that smells like gasoline. This is apparently because Ford says 70% of electric car buyers say they would miss the smell of gas. What are you wearing? Exxon #5. (Forbes)

And finally,
If you want to know how competitive eater and 14-time winner of the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating contest Joey Chestnut feels after eating 76 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes, he told Insider, “Most people relate to feeling really bloated and tired after Thanksgiving. It’s kind of like that, except really, really bad.” He also also revealed that after the contest he starts sweating profusely, and apparently his sweat smells like hot dogs. Combine that with Exxon #5 and he’ll REALLY be a chick magnet.

Dictionary.com has added some more words to their collection. They include: Yeet, which is an exclamation of enthusiasm, approval and pleasure. Zaddy, which is an attractive man who is also stylish, charming, and self-confident. And You-all, used in direct address to two or more people. But in New York, it is acceptable to replace “you-all” with the more familiar, “”yous guys.”
