When Texas plumber Mark Oberholtzer traded in his black Ford F-250 pickup truck, he expected it would live a second life in the hands of new owners, but probably not these owners.
Oberholtzer's Texas City plumbing company, Mark-1 Plumbing, has been inundated with threats after a photo of his old Ford work truck appeared on a terrorist Twitter feed, equipped with an anti-aircraft gun in the bed and still bearing the company logo on the door.
From the Daily Mail:
It was supposed to provide the perfect festive romantic moment: a mistletoe drone that would get diners at TGI Friday's to kiss on camera.
But the restaurant's plan to lure in festive diners went horribly wrong after one of the machines smashed into a photographer's face at a launch event in New York.
Georgine Benvenuto was left in shock after the machine flew into her face, slicing off the tip of her nose and cutting open a section of her lip.
The ten-inch drone became so entangled in Miss Benvenuto's hair that she even feared she would lose an eye.
Looking for some hate-filled paper to gift wrap that Hitler teapot you bought last year for your special neo-Nazi someone?
Look no further.
Hallmark has pulled one of its gift wrap designs from stores after complaints that the interlocking lines in the pattern resembled swastikas. A woman in California spotted the paper in the Hanukkah section of a Walgreen's.
"We apologize for the oversight and apologize to anyone who was offended. That obviously was not our intent," said Hallmark spokeswoman Julie Elliott. "It was an oversight on our part to not notice the intersecting lines that could be seen as a swastika pattern."
The design, she said, was originally based on the pattern from a Chinese vase.
Note: "Spoiler Alert" should come BEFORE you actually spoil something.
Comedian Kitty Flanagan made that mistake by stating that Santa doesn't exist multiple times during a 6:30pm broadcast of Channel 10's "The Project" in Australia.
"Oh sorry — spoiler alert," she said. "If you have kids in the room, you should probably have covered their ears and gone 'la, la, la!' or something."
Sure, maybe not that many young kids who still believe in Santa are watching the evening news, but enough were to cause a whole slew of complaints online from angry parents.
@theprojecttv sorry but my 8 year old doesn't read Twitter. She was however, sitting on my lap having a goodnight cuddle before bed. Thanks.— Leonie Oosterhuis (@Mrsoostie) December 9, 2014

The show then apologized on air and even had "Santa" on the show for an interview about gearing up for Christmas.
Tonight we will be crossing to Santa in the North Pole so he can clear up any confusion for our younger viewers. Best regards, The Project— The Project (@theprojecttv) December 10, 2014
