This Guy Planted Fake Halloween Costumes In Stores And They're Hilarious

The comedian was back at it again this past Halloween with some funny costume ideas that he left in stores to prank shoppers who were none the wiser.

Some of them take jabs at ridiculous news trends, like Millennials being responsible for the death of certain industries.

Others were just straight-up ridiculous. Haven’t you ever wanted to go trick-or-treating as a pair of jean shorts?

Along with non-descript, clearly plagiarized character costumes doing their best to avoid copyright issues.

There’s also the oh-so-wrong Absent Father.

And the inexplicable: Milkshake Duck.

What ducks have to do with milkshakes, I have no idea.

Trump Complains About ‘Worst Fake News’ As He Returns To Washington From Vacation

President Donald Trump recently returned from a two week summer vacation at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. But by the looks of his Twitter feed, the time off hasn’t helped the President relax much. On Sunday, President  Trump took to Twitter to slam the mainstream media, which he calls “fake news” for being the “most dishonest Fake News reporting [he has] ever seen.”

The tweet most likely refers to the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville the previous week, and the controversy that has surrounded it. President Trump was initially slow to reply to the violent clashes between white nationalists and counter protesters, which generated much criticism.

Politicians like Senator Ted Cruz took to Twitter to condemn the “hatred and racism” of groups like “the Nazis, the KKK, and white supremacists.” Trump’s own daughter, Ivanka Trump, said on Twitter that there is “no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis.” 

But Trump initially responded by saying that “many sides” were to blame for the violence. A White House statement later called out specific groups like the KKK. Only for Trump to later take to Twitter and seemingly call for Confederate statues to be left in place. 

And then this weekend, President Trump again took to Twitter to condemn 40,000 counter protesters who took to the streets of Boston on Saturday to protest a “free speech” rally featuring far-right speakers, which had attracted around 100 participants.

The same day, President Trump took to Twitter once again to praise the counter protesters. 

President Trump’s back and forth on the issue earned him praise from the likes of former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke on Twitter. 

While his comment on “fake news” seems to have indicated to journalists that they’re doing their jobs well.

Photo Of Black Policeman Guarding Charlottesville Protesters Debunked As Fake News

Be careful of what you read on the Internet — it’s not always trustworthy! For instance, following the protests in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, a Facebook post was circulated that supposedly was taken at Saturday’s protest, featuring a photo of a black police officer protecting the white supremacists attending the event. 

Tweets of the photo generated thousands of favorites and retweets on Twitter before users realized it was actually taken back in July.

There was another white supremacist rally in Charlottesville on July 8, 2017, which is likely where this photo was taken. More than a thousand people were in attendance, including about 50 Ku Klux Klan members. According to USA Today, police used tear gas on the crowd, and 22 people were arrested.

There was also a white supremacist rally at the same site in May, which featured very similar torches to those which were a part of the most recent protest.

It’s also true that this isn’t the only picture of a black cop protecting white supremacists.

However, this photo was definitely not taken a the rally this past weekend, no matter what posters would have you believe. Many have now taken down their statuses and tweets, apologizing for the mistake. 

Always be on the lookout for fake news!

This Beaver Ruthlessly Trashed A Store Selling Fake Christmas Trees

I’m not going to pretend I know what this beaver was thinking when he broke into a store but I’m going to anyway, because it’s fun.

Charlie the beaver bust into a dollar store in Charlotte Hall, Maryland, because he heard a terrible rumor: they were selling fake trees.

Being a beaver, he saw that as a personal affront. It’s like inviting your Italian friend over for a “traditional meal like Nonna used to make” for him to later on discover that you used canned sauce in the plate of spaghetti and meatballs in front of him. It’s downright unforgivable.

Upon breaking into the store, old Charlie was first horrified, then angered to discover that the rumors were actually 100% true.

Nothing could sate his wood-lust as he absolutely decimated all of the displays that stood in his path.

Authorities were quick to point out Charlie didn’t go berserk until after he noticed the trees were fake. Coincidence? I think not.

He was ultimately caught and put in the care of a wildlife rehabilitator.

But fake trees should be on guard: there’s a beaver out there who’s had it up to here with your deception. You never know which fake piece of wood’s going to be next on the receiving end of Charlie’s wrath.
