    In New York, Mike Brown is marketing the world's strongest cup of Joe- under the brand name of Death Wish Coffee. Double the strength of an espresso, Death Wish Coffee even comes with a disclaimer warning drinkers to expect "many sleepless nights." Mike says he used to work in a small coffee shop in New York, but got fed up with customers asking for stronger coffee. He explained, "This began my journey for finding and roasting the Death Wish bean and after many trial and error processes I found it. The type of blend, bean and roasting process we use makes Death Wish Coffee the strongest in the world." You can get it on Amazon if you'd like and a 16-ounce bag will run you $20 bucks! (Ananova)


  • Flower girl shatters previous aisle walk record!

    She makes it down the aisle in record time...

    I have never understood the thought process behind hiring youngsters to be in a wedding. Little tykes dressed up are adorable (granted), but a wedding ceremony can be an arduous task that tests the resole of those much older than this young lady.  Let's be honest- how many weddings have you attended where some little cutie pie assigned to be the flower girl actually made it slowly down the aisle, tear free, and then took her position amongst the wedding party and quietly behaved?  It's not their fault- I've had a hard time standing through a wedding ceremony and I'm a "grown adult".

    KTLA weatherman Henry DiCarlo was reading off a list of birthdays when he came upon 10-year old "Hugh Janus," sending out well wishes to that young man… until his colleagues started to crack up and DiCarlo realized he got "punked."

    Cue non-stop, on-air laughter, following by DiCarlo offering up the following assurance: "Hopefully there's not a 10-year old with that name out there."

    Mom forces girl to wear "I steal" shirt to school

     We think this parent is getting it right...the school says otherwise.  What do you think?

    A mom in Colorado is upset with her children's school for preventing her from using a unique form of punishment.  Jessica Rocha says her eight-year-old daughter has sticky fingers, so she sent the girl to school wearing a shirt that read "I steal.  Please watch me,".  Rocha says she intended to make her nine-year-old son wear a similar shirt about bullying until she found out that the school's principal had forced her daughter to cover up the shirt.  The superintendent of Fort Morgan Schools said they "cannot support something that is demeaning to the kids," but Rocha argues that the school is overstepping its bounds.  She says she's trying to be "proactive in their school life as well as their home life."
