News Reporter Completely Loses It Over Black Friday Live On TV–And We Feel For Him

Joshua Short has waited his entire journalistic career to cover a Black Friday live on the air. Don’t judge — we all have different goals. He finally got his chance this year, but the broadcast didn’t exactly go as planned. Josh and his news station expected long lines and the usual chaos that accompany Black Friday, but it appears 2017 was the year that residents of Chicago and the surrounding suburbs got it together.

There was no Black Friday crowd for Josh to report on.

Josh, who obviously isn’t a fan of “fake news,” decided to give one seriously honest report. The show’s anchor, Alex Wilcox, did his introduction and finally asked, “Josh, how are things going?”

Josh let him know exactlyhow things were going in this now-viral rant:

Alex caught that proverbial pass expertly with a smile and a chuckle. He then commented to Josh that he may be on the wrong side of the mall and there may be people at another entrance.

Check out the sweet screen-blur from Josh making his emotional exit:

Alex awkwardly ended the segment by stammering “Uh, Josh is gone, we lost Josh.” Always ready with a sense of humor, Joshua Short has embraced his moment of too-much-honesty and talked about it on social media.

He even posted the video with a bit of commentary:

And just like that, Josh won the hearts and minds of the world:

It didn’t take long before other reporters declared themselves #TeamJosh:

Someone should start a petition for Josh to report all the news from now on.

Michael Bay To Produce Live-Action 'Dora The Explorer' And We Don't Know How To Feel

Everything about Michael Bay movies screams machismo in my opinion. Models, cars, explosions, and models working on cars before exploding. That’s why his upcoming project is such a surprise. He’s producing the live-action Dora The Explorer movie. 

Not much is known about the project at this point but is is rumored to star a teenage Dora as she moves to the city with her cousin, Deigo. The movie is set to be written by Nick Stoller, who directed The Muppets, which might be the only thing that makes sense so far. 

The adaptation is scheduled to be released in 2019 but already the internet is wondering what this thing will look like. 

While there are still a lot of unknowns about this project I think there is one thing we can safely count on.

This Blogger Is Advocating For 'Sperm Smoothies' And We Don't Know How To Feel About It

In a world dominated by health experts, bloggers, and Instagram influencers endorsing ‘fit teas,’ it’s hard to know which health products to trust. We’ve been burned by one too many disgusting green shakes to blindly place our trust in health gurus. 

That said, we’re always intrigued by the newest health craze. And this woman has a recommendation that has certainly piqued our interest. 

29-year-old Tracy Kiss, a single mom, blogger, and personal trainer, is advocating for something a little more “out there” than your typical green smoothie: the sperm smoothie. 

That secret recipe she teases? The main ingredient is manly goodness, apparently. 

According to The Sun, Kiss “mixes the semen with fruit, seeds, coconut or almond milk – but is also happy to drink it on its own.”

We have a lot of questions. First of all, what does it taste like?

“Every batch tastes different, depending on what he’s been eating,” she reports. “He,” being her sperm donor, a healthy (and generous) friend who independently harvests and delivers his semen weekly. Don’t worry, he gets STI-tested regularly. 

Now, back to our main concern: why do this???

Well, Kiss contends that the, uh, all-natural smoothie can fend off viruses — and she drinks it every day. 

“I’d been feeling run down and had no energy but now I’m full of beans and my mood has improved,” she told Closer Magazine

It seems worth noting that a doctor interviewed for The Sun’s article insists that “there is absolutely no nutritional value to semen,” and perhaps vegans should seek out protein in traditional sources. 

But that isn’t about to stop Kiss, who, to her credit, is curious what her readers think about the practice. 

Using semen for nutritional purposes is nothing new to Kiss’ routine. She made waves for promoting her nonsexual ‘semen facial’ in 2014. 

She’s since defended the practice to Vice:

In relationships, you put fingers in holes, you taste things, and you don’t see it as cringeworthy. But when you take away the passion and say it’s scientific, people don’t like it.

A fair point, but we’ll wait until the real science comes through before we start looking for donors for this week’s health shake.

This Awkward Throwback Photo Of Margot Robbie Will Make You Feel Better About Yourself

As a bitter millennial with stumpy legs and no stage presence, I harbor a lot of animosity towards beautiful and talented celebrities who have done absolutely nothing wrong. Number one on this list is Margot Robbie. Not only does she have the dreamiest Australian accent and a perfect body / face, she also happens to have my name. And I’m kind of a narcissist and wanted to be the most famous Margot of our generation. Based on where her career is going, and my number of Twitter followers, that’s not going to happen.

That’s why the most recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! made me feel a little better. And if you’re still resentful from your years as an awkward tween, it will make you feel better too. 

Much to Robbie’s surprise, Kimmel unveiled this amazingly awkward #tbt, thanks to one of Robbie’s friends.

“Literally the most embarrassing photo of my whole life,” the actress said woefully. “I bet this was Sophia [who sent the photo.]” …All we know is, we definitely wouldn’t want to be Sophia right now. 

Let’s just appreciate her reaction to seeing this less-than-fortunate-looking photo, which was taken on her thirteenth birthday. 

Yeah, girl. Been there. Except with every photo ever taken of me. Only feeling mildly sympathetic right now. 

There’s a lot to love about this photo.

First of all she’s reading a ‘Harry Potter’ book, so she truly is one of us mere mortals who dream about getting our Hogwarts letters. 

And then, well, she looks awkward AF. Even celebrities had it rough in middle school! “I was really into slicking my hair back, God knows why,” she said. “I’m wearing glasses I didn’t actually need. And I lied to get glasses… I went to the optometrist and said ‘No, I can’t see.'” Margot Robbie, queen of the personality glasses before they were cool. 

Her embarrassment is actually pretty endearing. 

See, she’s still perfect.
