Everyone freaked out about the job market yesterday, because an ad looking for McDonald’s cashiers in Massachusetts wanted applicants to have a BACHELOR’S DEGREE. Well, pump the brakes. The woman who runs the McDonald’s says it was a mistake, and she DOESN’T require people to have college degrees.
The pork and beef industries just announced they’re renaming hundreds of cuts of meat . . . to somehow make the names more descriptive AND less complicated. A few examples: “Pork chops” will now have names like New York chops and ribeye chops . . . beef loin top sirloin cubes are now kabobs . . . and pork butt is now a Boston roast.
On Easter, in Florida, a woman was eating Goldfish crackers and noticed one that had a CROSS branded on its side. To us, it looks like the cracker came into contact with the head of a screw . . . but to her, quote, “it’s a sign from God.” She’s not sure what she’s going to do with the Goldfish cracker yet.
On Wednesday, a 50-year-old man in Florida wanted to give himself a HOT SHAVE . . . so he put his can of shaving cream on the stove. Unfortunately, that’s incredibly stupid, since pressurized metal cans of shaving cream aren’t meant to be heated up . . . and it EXPLODED IN HIS FACE. He got a face full of flying aluminum shards, and was hospitalized with some cuts on his face.
