Beloved author J.K. Rowling may be best known for her books about wizards, but it seems like her former assistant had mastered some magical powers of her own -- namely, the ability to "accio" her boss's money into her own pocket without being detected.
Fast food restaurants may not be seen as inherently romantic, but one popular chain continues to prove it's got a place in the wedding industry. In fact, it's convinced a lot of couples to say "yo quiero" in addition to "I do."
Last February, Taco Bell announced that it would offer the option of hosting weddings at its Las Vegas flagship Cantina location. At the time, it seemed more like a kooky marketing stunt to promote the two-story store on the Strip, complete with alcoholic drinks and themed merchandise. But it now looks like couples actually want to tie the knot there. Although 33% of weddings take place in a religious institution, Taco Bell might as well be a house of worship for many young people. In fact, the Las Vegas Cantina location has welcomed 60 couples to make their partnerships official in the last year. Throughout 2017, the restaurant hosted an average of more than one wedding per week. They've got another 25 in the works already over the next year. One couple traveled all the way from China just to be married at the Cantina.
Let's talk about cars. Do you remember your first car? A lot of people's first cars are by no means glamorous, but at that age, we're just thankful to have something to call our own that gets from point A to point B. On average, passenger cars on the road are 11.6 years old. In the car world, that's a long time, especially when new models come out every year.
As prophesied last July, Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un have come together in Singapore for a historic meeting - the first between a North Korean Dictator Leader and a sitting U.S. dictator-wannabe President. The Trump-Kim Summit took place earlier today, and in a shocking twist, the duo recruited Dennis Rodman Mike Tyson to become the NUCLEAR POWER TRIO. Believe me, even though the band says "It's a song to promote world peace!" it is not the weirdest thing you'll see today, but I have that too.
Who was "the Kanye West of clowning?" That's just one of the questions answered in the first episode of PBS Digital Studios' Origin of Everything - The True Origin of Killer Clowns. With a modern reimagining of Stephen King's IT scaring up big box office, Yale Doctoral Candidate, Danielle Bainbridge looks beyond Pennywise and back through a rich history of clowning that's served up legendary scares from Killer Clowns from Outer Space to American Horror Story and Bozo's Circus. Okay, maybe not Bozo, but Cookie and Wizzo always seemed "off" to me.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if Donald Trump, Kim Jong-un and Mike Tyson came together to form a band? No? Me neither, but the answer to the question that no one asked has been answered with NUCLEAR POWER TRIO! Featuring President Trump slappin' the bass with Supreme Leader Jong-un on guitar and Tyson punching the skins, their debut music video is out, and it's come with a message: "It's a song to promote world peace!" It just might be the weirdest thing you see today...
