A Burglar Breaks into a House, Feeds the Dog Pudding . . . and the Dog Decides to Leave With Him
On Saturday night, a couple in East Wenatchee, Washington came home and found a BURGLAR in their kitchen. And their dog, a lab-pitbull mix named Buddy, wasn't attacking the burglar . . . because the guy was feeding Buddy some PUDDING.
The burglar turned out to be 38-year-old Jason McDaniel, and the couple asked him what he was doing there . . . as you do when you find a burglar in your house, feeding your dog pudding.
Jason told them he was looking for a guy to KILL. And when the couple explained that the guy he was looking for didn't live there, Jason decided to leave.
And as he walked out . . . Buddy the dog WENT WITH HIM. Apparently all it took was a little pudding to COMPLETELY shift Buddy's loyalty to Jason.
The cops tracked Jason down and arrested him for residential burglary. But they DIDN'T find Buddy at his apartment . . . so now Buddy is MISSING.
Five Useless Products in Your Bathroom Right Now
If you want more proof that no one cares about truth in advertising, look no further than your own medicine cabinet. Half the stuff you keep in there does the OPPOSITE of what it's sold for. And Cracked.com has five good examples . . .
1. Acne cleansers. The soaps and scrub pads marketed for acne problems will probably do more harm than good. They're too aggressive and they dry out your skin, which doesn't necessarily help. Your skin is irritated enough as it is.
A serious acne problem might need antibiotics. But for normal acne, you just need to wash two or three times a day with warm water, or mild soap.
2. Mouthwash that contains alcohol. The alcohol in mouthwash isn't for killing bacteria. It's for keeping the menthol and eucalyptus oils mixed. Otherwise, your mouth would smell best when you're DRUNK. And we all know THAT'S not true.
Alcohol leaves you with a dry mouth. And you need saliva to fight bacteria. So a better strategy is to floss and brush regularly . . . including your tongue . . . and drink lots of water. And use alcohol-free mouthwash if you have to.
3. Exfoliating creams. They make you AGE FASTER. When you peel off the top layer of skin, you might look better at first, because what's underneath is fresh and shiny. But it's also more vulnerable. Later on you'll have MORE sun damage, and more wrinkles.
4. Cuticle trimmers. Your cuticles protect your fingernail beds from infection. So if you cut them regularly to make your fingers look better, they might end up looking worse in the long run. As in, nail fungus or other nasty conditions.
5. Shampoo. First off, you can't do anything to ACTUALLY 'revitalize' your hair. It's made up of DEAD CELLS. And shampooing removes your hair's natural protection, making it dry and brittle. Then you need the conditioner to replace the stuff you just stripped off.
You're better off washing with water, and using shampoo as little as possible . . . or not at all.
