Man's Bizarre Holiday Decoration Causes Neighbors To Call 911, And We Can See Why

There’s a neighborhood in Boulder, Colorado, that is getting freaked out by one man’s holiday decorations. Chris Olson has had concerned community members rush into his yard, greeted both the police and the fire department, and made it onto the local news for his work here, and he seems thrilled about it.

Olsen spoke with KUSA about the dummy hanging from the edge of his roof which is so convincing, people contacted the authorities. It’s actually kind of touching that people care so much, but when it looks like someone is about to fall to their death from a roof, folks step up.

Olsen used his own clothes, stuffed with yet more of his clothes, and he got a lot of the details nailed down perfectly. Gloves, hat, warm parka. This dummy is dressed better than I am.

Up close you may not be convinced, but from a distance, it really does look like a guy was stringing up his lights, then took a tumble:

Olsen says that he and his wife have had to go out in the yard to reassured freaked out Good Samaritan’s that the dummy is fine and not a real person. 

They also say that if they do it again next year (they will), they plan to contact the local police so they know not to rush over with the fire trucks. Apparently, the officers who responded to the emergency call were amused, and didn’t even ticket Olsen. 

Guess it’s slow around Christmas?

Man's New American Citizenship “Welcome Packet” Still Includes A Letter From President Obama

The Trump administration has built a reputation of stupidity and self incrimination.

You’d think that the White House would have changed its own records to reflect the current President, but according to Twitter user Aisha  Sultan, that is most definitely not the case.

However, it brought up some really bitter feelings for Twitter.

The letter itself is a standardized communication. However, it very explicitly reads “Sincerely, Barack Obama.”

Oh gosh PLEASE let these last few months be a giant episode of Punk’d.

It’s truly ominous, in an administration that has been outspoken against immigration from the campaign trail, that the letters of welcome for new citizens have not been updated.

Hopefully it is not a sign of things to come.

Man's Russian Doll Proposal Steals The Internet And Our Hearts

Everyone loves a good proposal story, and it usually takes a lot of planning to get one started. For Logan Rondi’s mom, it seemed as though everyone was in on it but her, and you can see that in the video she posted to Twitter below.

The Russian doll approach was a good strategy. It catches people off guard because you don’t know what direction the final box is going to go into. It wasn’t until she pulled this letter out that Logan’s mom realized what was coming.

Boom.

The reactions to a 2016 win like this were what you’d hope they would be.

Too cute.

The Internet Is Losing Its Mind Over This Man's Smoking Room Sorcery

With the exception of rewatching ‘Harry Potter’ (and sitting through that one weird cousin’s uncomfortably lame card trick) we don’t get to see magic very often. But maybe we’re just looking in the wrong places. 

22-year-old Isamu Felipe Nagano from the Gifu Prefecture in Japan stumbled upon some pretty impressive magic tricks — in the smoking area of a shopping mall.  

Nagano and three friends witnessed these seriously impressive tricks and uploaded this video to Twitter. 

But who is this mysterious, talented man?

“Without saying anything, [the magic man] started floating his paper cup,” Nagano told BuzzFeed News. “We asked him to do it again, and so he did without speaking a word.”

And it sounds like the guy seemed pretty pleased with himself.

“When he was done with his magic tricks, he gave us a smug face. He started smoking looking very satisfied, with a full smile on his face,” Nagano said. 

Twitter couldn’t get enough of this wizardry — the video has been retweeted nearly 60,000 times… And people seem to comment “WTF” quite frequently. 

“What! WTF!!”

Seriously though, how does he do it?

“It’s simple: That dude’s a wizard.”

Despite his Internet fame, the man’s identity remains a mystery.

“We don’t know his name,” Nagano. “But my friends who live around the area said that they recognize him although they too don’t know his name.”

Who knew that sorcery could be found in Japanese mall smoking rooms? (h/t buzzfeed)
