Meet Julie Bishop, Minister for Foreign Affairs and human emoji.
He then asked Bishop if she knew what a Thermomix was. (It’s an expensive device that both heats and mixes food at the same time.)
“I’m going to answer in emoji,” she said, going on to make a weird face.
Well played. But which emoji was she impersonating?
Dwayne Melton keeps 18 tarantulas in a crawl space in his home where they are hibernating for the winter, but he recently discovered that 5 of them were missing.
Note to self: never visit Dwayne.
AniMart Pets, a local exotic pet store in Georgia, called to say that someone had just brought in the stolen spiders and sold them for $60.
The shop thought the creatures might be his, because they were the ones who sold him them in the first place.
A man named Brandon L. Davis was arrested for the crime, and Melton's spiders are now also locked up for protection.
This fight in a parking lot in Arizona could have ended a lot worse.
A 24-year-old man named Justin Finch was in a argument with some other guys outside Zia Record Exchange in Phoenix, when they got into their car and tried to run him over.
“It was shocking. I was scared for my life for a minute… I got pinched between two cars,” he said. “This leg got twisted around and stuff. I’m like, afraid.”
But instead of knocking him down, he grabbed onto the trunk of the car and rode on the back as it raced away down the street.
Fortunately, police stopped the car about a mile down the road, and he only ended up with some scratches and bruises.
Finch claims the argument started after the men in the car called him a gay slur, but the drivers are denying this and say he started the whole thing.
No one ended up pressing charges.
For those out of the loop, "Jigaboo" is an old and rarely-heard slur for people of color. You know, the kind of old ditty your more racist grandma might drop casually at Thanksgiving dinner. The anchor, former Miss USA winner Kristi Capel, later apologized for the statement saying that she didn't know that it was a "even a word."
