Some Guy Devised The Most Awesomely Humurous Way To Quit His Job

PizzaQuit

This legend was so creative in how he quit, there’s no way his boss may even be mad.
 
Alex Lowther, who decided to quit his job at The Original Pizza Place in Marietta, Ohio, put in his two weeks in the most pro way ― with a sympathy card.

Lowther lately shared the card on the social media website and undoubtedly, sent the internet into a fit of giggles.
 
The Redditor described that because hours were slender at the pizzeria, he’d picked up a job at the local brewery and ended up transitioning there full time.
 
Since he’s always had a good relationship with the eatery’s staff, Lowther described he needed to leave in a comical fashion, providing them with some laughs on his way out.
 
And it appears his strategy was successful. Lowther said the card ended being very well-received as the staff “loved” it.
 
We must say, we love it too. It’s truly a pizza work.

Olympian Issues Apology After Teammates Reveal Truth

LochteHeader-Cropped

U.S. swimmer Ryan Lochte apologized Friday for his actions on the night he claimed he was robbed at gunpoint, along with three other swimmers, in Rio de Janeiro.
 

“I want to apologize for my behaviour last weekend ― for not being more careful and candid in how I described the events of that early morning and for my role in taking the focus away from the many athletes fulfilling their fantasies of participating in the Olympics,” Lochte said in a statement posted to his Twitter account.

Lochte told NBC’s Billy Bush that he and teammates Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger and Jimmy Feigen were robbed at gunpoint by men dressed as police officers on Sunday. Lochte afterwards shifted parts of his story while retelling it to NBC host Matt Lauer, and a surveillance video also contradicted Lochte’s first claims. ABC News reported the video showed the swimmers breaking down the door of a gas station toilet and fighting with a security guard, based on a Brazilian police source.
 

A Brazilian judge ordered police to confiscate Lochte and Feigen’s passports Wednesday after questions emerged over their story, but Lochte had already left Rio. Conger and Bentz were pulled from a flight back to the U.S. on Wednesday to be questioned about the event by Brazilian authorities.
 

Conger and Bentz were both released Friday, and Feigen agreed to pay a $10,800 fine to be allowed to leave Brazil.
 

Lochte appeared to stick by details of his story in his apology.

“It’s traumatic to be out late with your friends in a foreign country ― with a language barrier ― and have a stranger point a gun at you and demand money to let you leave,” Lochte said.
 

Brazilian authorities have urged Lochte and Feigen face charges of false reporting of a crime, according to reports Thursday from ABC News and Brazilian outlet Globo News.
 

Rio Olympics spokesman Mario Andrada released a statement Thursday saying no apology was needed from the swimmers.
 

“We must realize that these kids came here to have fun. Let’s give these kids a break,” Andrada said. “Sometimes you make selections that you later regret. They had fun, they made a mistake, life goes on.”

Olympic Swimmer Santo Condorelli Has Hilarious Pre-Competition Ritual With Father

Santoheader-cropped

For a guy who spends lots of time in the water, Canadian swimmer Santo Condorelli is getting known for his birds.

Not the flying kind, but the type you flip at others, generally in fury.

Before every race, Condorelli, 21, flashes the middle finger at his Father, Joseph.

The older Condorelli dutifully flips back a bird of his own.

The bizarre pre game ritual began when Condorelli was 8 years old, competing in swim meets against older, faster swimmers.

“[Dad said] ‘You’ve got to build your confidence yourself and say “eff everybody else” that you’re racing,’” Santo told the Canadian Press. “He said ‘Every time you’re behind the blocks, give me the finger and I’ll give it back to you.’”

It has seemingly worked, since Condorelli is now executing his Olympic dream. He will be racing Sunday in the freestyle relay, Tuesday in the 100-meter freestyle and next Thursday in the 50-meter free.

As you might expect, not everyone who sees Condorelli flip off his pop sees it as a touching gesture from son to father ― like the time TV cameras picked up the gesture.

“I was looking at my dad and I gave him the finger … directing it right at the camera,” he said. “I had to write an apology.”

The Condorellis’ personal ritual is meant in a loving way, but the middle finger has been considered an insult by most people for centuries.

“It’s one of the most early insult gestures known,” anthropologist Desmond Morris told the BBC.

Chris Pratt Knows What It Takes To Man-Up

Someday in the future, alien scientists will study what made Chris Pratt the perfect Hollywood heartthrob for the 21st century. Was it his brawn? Modest beginnings? Affable personality? No, they’ll say. It was the way he braided Anna Faris’ hair.

If you’ve ever felt not up-to-snuff relationship-wise, pull up a seat and turn your focus toward Pratt’s recent profile with InStyle magazine. You know, the one he’s been poking fun at on social media.
“My sister taught me the best way to braid when we were younger,” he told InStyle. “Then, I would braid Anna’s hair at night … it was a fine little ritual. But her hair began breaking off on top of the braid because she was sleeping on it. So Anna’s mom thought a French braid might disperse the pressure. She instructed me when we were in Hawaii shooting ‘Jurassic World.’”
Take notes, everybody. He does regular and French braids. Get you a man who can do both.

Pratt debuted his hairstyling skills on social media in 2014 with dual photos of a masterful french braid for Faris. Being a real self-proclaimed patriot, however, the “Guardians of the Galaxy” determined to ditch the French for some freedom.
“This is a strange thing to brag about but I did that glorious french braid,” he wrote, with the hashtags #Baller #man#ManBraid #RealMenBraid #isItBrade? #SpellingQuestion #StillBallerTho#WhyIsItFrench??? #ICallItAFreedomBraid #GoUsa.

Why Daniel Radcliffe Had To Keep Apologizing Between Scenes Of New Movie

DanRadHeader-Cropped

Daniel Radcliffe has chosen a number of intriguing roles since leaving the “Harry Potter” series behind. The actor’s latest turn as an FBI agent who goes undercover as a white supremacist in the forthcoming movie “Imperium” is no exception.

DanRad1-Cropped

The 27-year old celebrity appeared on “The Daily Show” earlier this week to discuss his new role and the challenges that came with it.

“I did find myself — whenever I was using racial slurs and stuff in the picture — I would have to go up to the celebrities later and be like, ‘I’m so sorry,’” Radcliffe said to host Trevor Noah. “’I just, like, have to say it. Like, I know you know that I don’t mean this, but I still feel like I have to say it.’ We were the most apologetic bunch of skinheads that has yet been seen.”

DanRad2-Cropped

Radcliffe’s filming experience sounds much like the one Leonardo DiCaprio had while playing a white plantation owner in “Django Unchained.” Much like the 2012 drama, “Imperium” additionally deals with tough, uncomfortable material that explores the underbelly of racism and domestic terrorism in America.

“It was a very weird movie to make in the one way because it was a brilliant experience and it was a great crew,” Radcliffe said. “On the other hand, we’re dealing with this really heavy material and filming, like, right-wing, white-supremacist rally scenes when we were all wearing T-shirts that said ‘white power’ on them and stuff like that is bizarre and horrifying. Despite that everyone understands it’s acting, everyone’s performing.”

Dixie Chicks Front Runner Not Ready To Make Nice

Natalie Maines still isn’t ready to make nice.

On Thursday, the Dixie Chicks frontwoman slammed country radio stations for supporting Donald Trump after his incendiary remarks about Hillary Clinton at a recent North Carolina rally.

Maines placed the backlash she faced in 2003 after publicly criticizing George W. Bush and the decision to invade Iraq in marked relief to the response to the GOP nominee’s latest blunder.

“I get banned for not liking Bush and now Trump can pretty much put a hit out on Hillary and he’s still all over country radio! Hypocrites!” she wrote.

After declaring that she was “ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas” at a London concert before the Iraq war, Maines and her bandmates experienced a vitriolic response from exactly the same country music community that helped catapult them to stardom.

The saga was afterwards documented in their own Grammy Award-winning record “Not Ready To Make Nice” and the documentary “Shut Up & Sing.”

During this election season, Maines has continued to espouse her beliefs to legions of “Dixie Chicks” enthusiasts, most recently performing in front of a defaced image of the presidential hopeful sporting devilish horns and a mustache at the kickoff of their North American tour.

Goodbye, Earl Trump.

Frank Ocean Releases Much Anticipated Album ‘Blond’

Following the release of his visual album Endless and his single Nikes, Ocean has followed up by dropping his second record, Blond.

The 17-track album was released on Saturday exclusively on Apple Music and iTunes, and fans went wild.

Blonde — which is the follow up to Ocean’s Grammy-winning 2012 debut LP, Channel Orange — features an impressive set of collaborators including Beyoncé, Kanye West, Pharrell, Andre 3000, Tyler The Creator, James Blake and Rick Rubin.

The record’s release also featured a print publication called ‘Boys Don’t Cry’, which was given to fans who seen pop-up stores in La, New York, London and Chicago. The magazine featured a CD copy of Blond.

At 360 pages, ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ features interviews with Ocean’s mother and rapper Lil B, alongside larger glossy images taken by Ocean.

On the list of written portions are a multi-scene screenplay composed by Ocean and a “hopes and dreams” section where many young men answer questions like, “What’s the most amazing thing you’ve ever seen?”

The magazine, which some fans are already selling on eBay for $1,000, also features poems and essays by several musicians, including West. He contributes a poem about McDonald’s: “I know them french fries have a plan/The cheeseburgers and the shakes formed a band.”

The 28-year old took to Tumblr after the album’s release and thanked his fans — in his trademark all caps — for their support and love.

“I HAD THE TIME OF MY LIFE MAKING ALL OF THIS,” the Thinkin’ Bout You singer wrote on Saturday night. “THANK YOU ALL. ESPECIALLY THOSE OF YOU WHO NEVER ALLOW ME TO FORGET I HAD TO FINISH. WHICH IS BASICALLY EVERY ONE OF Y’ALL. HAHA. LOVE YOU.”

Fans have been anxiously expecting Ocean’s return for years, and the vocalist continues to be working on Blonde since January 2013.

Twitter was saturated with Ocean fans’ delight over the weekend.

Green Day Singer Says He May Have Exaggerated Campaign Against Bush Presidency

Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day has never been one to shy away from sharing his political views ― the group did release an entire album called “American Idiot” which referenced the George W. Bush administration multiple times ― and these days, he’s no different.
 

In a fresh interview, Armstrong went in on Trump and his group of dedicated supporters, saying, “The worst issue I see about Trump is who his followers are.”

“I actually feel bad for them,” he added, “Because they’re poor, working class individuals who can’t get a leg up. They’re pissed off and he’s preyed on their desparation.”
 

The rocker then went in for the kill.
 

“[Trump] merely said, ‘You don’t have any choices and I’m the only one, and I’m going to take care of it myself.’ I mean, that’s fucking Hitler, man!” he said, adding, “I don’t even know how else to describe it. I wish I were over-exaggerating. And sometimes perhaps I do over-exaggerate with Bush. But with Trump, I just can’t wait ‘til he’s gone.”
 

Armstrong joins a long list of stars who have compared the Republican presidential nominee to the infamous fascist, among them Louis C.K., Eva Longoria and Sarah Silverman, who went so far as to dress up as Hitler to prove her point.

Britney Spears Reveals Near Death Experience

britneywave

Britney Spears might be embarrassed about a scary episode in Hawaii but at least she is completely fine!

The 34-year-old singer recounts when she “literally almost drowned” during a recent holiday in a new interview with BBC Radio’s Scott Mills, describing that she got sucked into 6-ft. tall waves.

“I totally embarrassed myself … I went out and I thought it was, like, a wave pool, and I was like, ‘This is so nice and refreshing and just wonderful,'” she says. “But the thing I did not think about is when you come back, the waves really come in hard.”

Spears looked to her security for help when she was sucked in, though none arrived.

“I got sucked under for, like, five minutes,” she says. “Actually, nearly drowned. And I’m like, ‘Where is my security? They’re just going to let me die here, you know.'”

“And then I came in again and another wave took me under,” she continues. “They just kind of left me there. I think they knew I could probably survive my way through it.”

But Spears now takes the episode in stride, particularly since her two sons — 10-year-old Preston and 9-year-old Jayden — call Hawaii one of their favorite
spots.

“It was interesting to say the least, and I got the experience of getting taken down by a 6-ft. wave,” the “Private Show” singer jokes.

Leonardo DiCaprio and his supermodel girlfriend walked away uninjured after the two were involved in a car accident in the Hamptons over the weekend.

DiCaprio, 41, and 24-year-old Nina Agdal were travelling on Montauk Highway on Long Island’s east end Saturday around 4:30 p.m. when DiCaprio’s Range Rover was rearended by a woman driving a Mini Cooper, according to the Daily Mail.

“She was shaken up,” a witness told Page Six. “Leo was nice about it. He motioned for her to come with him and he helped her over the guardrail so she could rest.”

An ambulance did arrive as a precaution but medical aid wasn’t needed and no one was taken to hospital.

Authorities wouldn’t release any details about who else was involved but affirmed that Agdal was driving, Newsday reports.
