Grandma Discovers Something About The 'USA' Shirt She's Been Wearing For 25 July 4th Celebrations

Grandma Discovers Something About The 'USA' Shirt She's Been Wearing For 25 July 4th Celebrations

Dressing up for special occasions is pretty great, and nothing says PATRIOTIC GET-UP better than rocking your red white and blue everything on the 4th of july.

T-shirts brandishing the old stars and stripes, cheap wayfarer knock-off sunglasses, blue shorts, red sneakers and a white top bedazzled with stars, everyone can rep the US flag. Heck, even if you’re from New York my guy, there’s a special USA item of clothing for you.

The iconic symbol of America’s flag is immediately recognizable, and no July 4th celebration would be complete without drowning in a glorious sea of red, white, and blue, accompanied by whatever cold cheap beer your friends managed to toss into a cooler.

The thing is, however, that the colors red, white, and blue are pretty common. There are tons of countries that have them on their flags. Look at France. Look at Britain. Stars, while not exactly a rarity, are a bit less common. So if you see stars, red, white, and blue on something, your mind automatically thinks ‘Murica.

That’s what Dale Cheesman’s grandma thought. She’s been repping the same fourth of July shirt for more than 25 years. Look at how adorable she is in it.

However, thanks to the 2018 World Cup and the participation of one team, Panama, Dale and his family discovered something about Grandma’s shirt.

She wasn’t repping Old Glory at all. Take a look at the Panamanian flag below, then back at Granny’s shirt.

That’s right, every July 4th for 25+ years, Grandma was actually proudly rocking Panama’s flag.

Something that Dale calls “25 years of treason.”

People loved Dale’s post.

And immediately replied by giving some Panama-approved Grandma nickname puns. 

Now here’s where it gets crazy, a proud citizen of Panama pointed out that he should tell his grandmother to rock the shirt on November 3rd, which is Panama’s Independence Day.

Dale’s birthday? November 3rd. BOOM.

Others wanted to know just how in the heck Grandma managed to keep a 25+ year shirt looking so darn nice.

People just wanted his grandma to come and visit Panama, probably on account of how well she wore that shirt.

Others didn’t find it so funny. This is July 4th after all, and Granny was sporting the wrong flag.

On the plus side, however, she at least was wearing a shirt for a country that qualified for the World Cup and even won it!

It was the World Cup of Flags on Twitter, but still, so what they lost 6-1 to England? They’ve got that distinction and an awesome Grandma who will hopefully uphold  the tradition come this July 4th.

Paris Hilton Asked People To Tell Her Something She Doesn't Know And Twitter Obliged

Paris Hilton Asked People To Tell Her Something She Doesn't Know And Twitter Obliged

The art of being famous simply for just trying to become famous isn’t anything new.

And while the Kardashians have perfected the art of being well-known for basically nothing, if you remember the early-2000s, the days of T-Mobile Sidekicks and bedazzled-everything. The days when Lil’ Jon ruled the airwaves, you might remember a socialite and daughter of hotel tycoon Paris Hilton.

The OG-famous for being famous’ sake girl. And by OG I literally mean OG, she basically provided a blueprint for Kim on how to climb the fame ladder.

Kim was once friends with Paris, and before she was the champion pioneer of thrusting her family into reality fame, she was organizing Hilton’s closet and stepping out of the way of photos so other people could snap pictures with the tall socialite.

Their careers took similar trajectories – both women shot to fame after leaked sex tapes of theirs hit the market, the Kardashians took the scandal and ran with it. And while the K’s family drama is pretty much the only celeb-trash-gossip that continues to go strong, year after year, Paris’ career has comparatively stepped out the reality TV limelight and is pursuing a diverse number of other business opportunities.

She also tweets thought-provoking questions like this:

Now that could’ve been an innocent and appropriate caption for a part sassy/all glamorous photo she posted on Twitter. But people took her question to heart and truly went out of their way to tell Hilton something she probably didn’t know.

What started as a joke soon became a laundry list of obscure and interesting facts. Like, did you know that “Chef” is an incomplete title?

You might’ve forgotten this gem from geometry class.

Things got into the scientifically dense real quick, too. Fascinating nonetheless, however.

I’m going to pretend like I know what this guy is talking about right now.

Now I WISH I picked up on this before, are you serious? One, three, five, seven, nine…my God…

I knew there was a reason I inherently loved sloths. Do they not poot because they’re that lazy? That’d be amazing.

Grammatical and linguistic rulings were also being served up.

More obvious jokes began rolling in, but they were true none the less.

Check out this bit of cosmic knowledge right here. White night sky, baby.

Oh, did you want a lesson in some obscure geometry? Well then you’ve come to the right place.

Some of the facts hit a bit closer to home, however. Like this photo of Jesse Heiman and Paris.

How great would it be if Paris has that photo printed somewhere on an office desk and Jesse assumed she forgot they ever took it?

This Woman Is Regretting Buying Something Hilarious At A College Party

We’ve all done something that we’ve regretted in college. But that’s okay, because college is probably the last chance at being young and free that you’re going to get. And over the weekend, Twitter user Annie Swartz of Texas Tech did something that probably seemed like a good idea at the time, and would probably be considered an equally great idea by many people, day or night. 

Swartz is well known for finding all the animals at parties. Whether it be a chicken or a puppy. 

But over the weekend, Swartz went way too far when she found one animal. 

Yes, she purchased a goat. No, she doesn’t still want the goat now that the party is over.

Somehow, this is a relatable tweet for some people. 

Others were just wondering how someone can accidentally buy a goat. Or why this is a problem. 

People really like goats, apparently. 

A lot of people seem to think this will happen to them. 

Would you accidentally buy a goat?

Mom Throws Husband A Vasectomy Party And The Snacks Are Really Something

Washington state is home to one of the most supportive marriages on the Internet. Kimberly Hemperly and her husband Jason are going viral for sharing their wise decision to take family planning into their own hands. After two kids, they’re shutting off the sperm factory. Jason is getting a vasectomy. But it’s not sad! 

They even threw a party to celebrate.

Hemperly shared pictures of their family fiesta, which included all sorts of vasectomy themes treats and visual aids to drive home the theme:

Naturally, people love this show of support. Hemperly toldBored Panda that the party was a total surprise, and Jason was delighted and touched.

“I really just wanted to show my support and appreciation to my husband for doing what he did, because not many men offer to go under the knife,” she said. “The procedure is much harder for the woman, and since I’ve had 2 C-sections with rough recoveries, he ‘took one for the team.’ It’s pretty cool of him to do something like this for me.”

Hemperly provided treats like bananas, Ding Dongs, “super seed” pumpkin seeds, and what looks like a rubber glove full of green popcorn:

She made a cake with a headstone dedicated to Jason’s sperm:

And I don’t know what these are, but they look absolutely disgusting:

She also made shirts for the kids that read, “Swim Team Survivor 2017,” and one for Jason that says, “Time To Retire The Swim Team.”

Getting a vasectomy is a great choice if you’re done procreating, and has a fairly quick recovery period. It’s actually a great option for birth control, but clearly one with some emotional ties. It’s nice that this couple got each other’s backs like that. 

And their fronts.

Jason does look a little sad, but it also seems like he’s got his hands full.

Chrissy Teigen Trolls John Legend For Pretending To Be Something He's Not In Photograph

Love somebody long enough and you get to make fun of them. That’s kind of the point of marriage, right?

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have been together for over a decade, and she’s earned the right to give her man hell. It just so happened that the latest reason was baseball. John attended the World Series with fashion photographer Mike Rosenthal, and though neither bleed Dodger blue, they can afford some decent seats. 

The World Series is in Los Angeles, and fan of the sport or no, it’s still a pretty big deal. Therefore one doesn’t need to be a superfan to get excited when the Dodgers do something well, which I assume is what predicated this photograph.

“What sport! What merriment! Achievements thus lay bare the might of mankind!” they allegedly said.

Is that like a high fifteen? Regardless, she got ’em good. Delightful.

Twitter Just Noticed Something Odd On Melania's Birthday Card To Donald

President Trump got a number of birthday shoutouts on Twitter this week, but none stood out more than the casual greeting he received from his wife, Melania.

Source

Not only did she wait until a leisurely 10pm to tweet his birthday greeting, but the card she posted contained a suspicious orange smudge.

Source

Seriously, what IS that thing?

Fortunately, Twitter had plenty of theories.

The theories kept coming:

But let’s be honest, we all know what that gross smudge REALLY is…

Everyone loves a good conspiracy theory.

But maybe the Trumps are just bad at birthdays. Let’s not forget the birthday tweet President Trump sent to his wife back in April. You know, the one with the American flag that only had 39 stars?

Troll beads have experienced something of a revival

When a young silversmith called Søren Nielsen crafted the first ever Troll bead from silver in 1976, he had no idea of the huge success story which would grow from that single bead.  Dubbed “the Mask” because of its six faces showing a different expression on each side of the bead, it was to become the first in a long series of Trollbeads which were to adorn the wrists of people the world over.

Initially, the beads were sold in a small jewellery shop owned by Svend Nielsen, father to Søren and sister Lise Aagaard.  As the demand Troll beads made from different shapes, colours and styles grew, so did the business.  Still a very much a family affair, the Aagaard-Nielsen connection can still be seen today, with different members of the family taking responsibility for some aspect of the company.  Lise Aagaard took the helm in distribution and export, making Trollbeads available to those in countries all over the world.  Due to their versatility and universal capacity to convey different messages to the wearer depending on what beads they wore, they became a worldwide hit.

In response to requests for the beads to be made in different materials, Troll beads became available in a spectrum of materials including glass, semi precious and precious stone, gold and wood.  As well as being decorative, a Troll bead could have another purpose.  Themed beads made it possible for the wearer to buy a specific bead for a special occasion, such as a birthday or anniversary, or to remind the wearer of a special place or time.  In this respect, the beads were not dissimilar to traditional charm bracelets in how the Troll beads could be displayed as a kind of “story” pertaining to the wearer’s personal history in some way.  Some of the original beads even referenced the Nielsen-Aagard’s Danish heritage, with beads being made to represent ancient myths from their native home.

Since the 1970s, Trollbeads have experienced something of a revival, and are now ubiquitous, adorning the wrists of people everywhere.  It is surprising that they ever experienced a lull in popularity, given their timeless quality and versatile nature, but a taste for all things “retro” coupled with individuality being a by-word for 21st century fashion (As oxymoronic and contentious as that concept might be), the humble Troll bead has once again been catapulted into the limelight, with celebrities such as Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Simpson and Emma Watson seen wearing the bracelets.

A new generation of Trollbead wearers are now wearing the beads to celebrate milestones reached and achievements made.  The unique design of the bracelet also means that the beads are interchangeable, allowing for a multitude of different bead combinations.  This versatility, along with the retro appeal and charming theory behind Troll beads goes some way to explaining their renewed popularity.
