"We thought she was sick, turns out she's just a jerk." That's how the Mitchell County Animal Rescue began the brutally honest adoption announcement for an unsavory cat in their care named Perdita.
The Spruce Pine, North Carolina organization continues:
Meet Perdita, not for the faint of heart. LIKES: staring into your soul until you feel as if you may never be cheerful again; the song Cat Scratch Fever, the movie Pet Cemetery (Church is her hero), jump scares (her specialty), lurking in dark corners, being queen of her domicile, fooling shelter staff into thinking she's sick (vet agrees...she's just a jerk) DISLIKES: the color pink, kittens (yuk they are so chipper), dogs, children, the Dixie Chicks, Disney movies, Christmas and last but NOT least...HUGS. She's single and ready to be socially awkward with a socially awkward human who understands personal space. FREE ADOPTION ;)

Shelter Director Amber Lowery says 4-year-old Perdita came to the shelter on Christmas Eve like the Grinch and quickly asserted dominance...
“I’m looking at her right now, and she’s rolling around in her little bed, looking all sweet and cute, but the minute you try to rub her, she slaps you. We thought she was in pain and took her to the vet and he said: ‘No, this cat is just a jerk’.”
Since then, the shelter has had to warn visitors that Perdita’s shy, kitten-like attempts to draw passersby to her cage are, in fact, a ruse that will end badly.

Over the weekend in St, Petersburg, Kentucky, Cody Lutz, his fiancee, and her sister built a beautiful 9-foot snowman in their yard. When Lutz returned home from work this week though, he noticed tire tracks on his lawn. From WLWT:
There’s now a massive stump now exposed, with a snowy imprint of a bumper stuck to it.
“You reap what you sow,” Lutz said. “Still standing and still smiling, Frosty certainly had the last laugh!”

This is a good example of how people can mislead by presenting just part of a story. In this video, we see a driver holding out his parking ticket to a tollbooth attendant. The attendant has her hand out, but she isn't reaching far enough to take the ticket. She isn't looking at the driver, either. My first reaction was that both the driver and the tollbooth attendant were jerks, but then I read what really happened, via The Morning News:

A driver and attendant were locked in prideful stillness for over a minute as both refused to reach any further for the driver's payment. The attendant eventually called for backup; apparently, the driver had been teasing her by yanking the card away whenever she reached for it, leading to the filmed absurdity.
The nicest thing John Oliver could find to say about racist criminal Joe Arpaio was that he's "a man who answers the question, 'What if a decaying rotted potato somehow hated Mexicans?'"
The nicest thing I can find to say about Arpaio is that he's a much better singer than he was a sheriff. Read the rest

Alex Lambert used to be head chef at the Littleover Lodge Hotel in Derby, UK. That was before he posted on Instragram that he enjoys feeding meat to unsuspecting vegans.
From NZ Herald:
The chef and father-of-one has since denied he ever fed meat to anybody against their will. He claimed he only made the comment on Instagram to irritate a vegan woman he'd gotten into an argument with.
In his bitter exchange, he wrote to the woman: "Well you should find a better way to spend your time, my personal favourite is feeding vegans animal products and them not knowing."
The woman replied: "Hope you get caught one day, would love to see that. I know we're a minority and really don't give a sh*t because that has no relevance. Enjoy the heart disease."
After a group of vegans threatened a boycott of the hotel, Lambert was fired. He insists he doesn't really give animal products to unsuspecting vegans, and only claimed that he did to wind the woman up. He issued a statement, saying:
"I have been a chef for nine years. I have never in this time done anything like feeding a vegan animal products or slipped in contaminated food.
"My job has always been my passion and something I have always taken very seriously. It was a stupid comment said out of anger.
"For the record I have no issue with vegans." Read the rest
This mom in Port Moody, BC is taking a chance by having her son block a car with his bike so she can swipe a parking spot. A road ragey driver would have bumped the kid out of the way.

Has this ever happened to you? After circling around endlessly for 20 minutes at a completely PACKED parking lot on a busy Saturday afternoon, I finally saw someone leaving, and patiently waited for the parking spot (blue car) for them to leave. Out of nowhere comes a punk kid and his mom, and I would guess the dad (driving the silver Corolla).
Apparently now you can sweet talk your way and reserve the spot if you just stand there and use a kid to block you with his bike. Your car was not even there. I waited a full minute before you even showed up. My turn signal was indicated at 0.06 of the video.
For what it's worth, the lady of the car leaving said to me, "they have been waiting here for a while, so they can have the spot". She seems clueless that I was there waiting for their spot way before they arrived and sided with them since they chatted moments earlier. SMH...
Remember the cretins who shut down a busy freeway in Los Angeles several years back, forcing stalled drivers to listen to their musical performance? Or the marriage proposal that took place in the middle of the 10 freeway in West Covina in a cloud of pink smoke, stopping traffic for 10 minutes?
The latest chapter in the book of narcissistic assholes who enjoy causing massive gridlock on freeway systems used by ambulances, fire trucks, and people who get their pay docked if they punch in late is Vidal Valladares. He was arrested on Tuesday after he shut down Interstate 45 in Houston to propose to his girlfriend amidst the romantic clamor of honks and angry screams. He faces six months in jail and a fine of up to $2,000. He was charged with obstructing a roadway, a Class B misdemeanor. Read the rest
