Home Finds That Happened

Towards the end of 2014 the worlds largest burger-joint, McDonald’s Corp., reported its worst U.S. sales decline in almost a decade. For U.S. restaurants open at least a year sales fell nearly 5% in December. Now, only a few months into 2015 and the super sized burger chain has continued to show a steady decline in sales. This February, it was reported U.S. store sales dropped 4% and nearly 2% worldwide.

The famed Clown & crews’ is struggling to compete with tofu-stuffed burritos and new-artisanal menu items from rival burger chain Wendy’s, yet some loyal fans of the 2 All-Beef patties-special sauce-lettuce-cheese-pickels-onions-on-a-seaseme-seed-bun are still flocking to the stores.

However, this time around customer are saving their food for later, years later. This past February two guys named Ed & Dean decided to save a leftover cheeseburger for 20 years!

Some research shows this could be another factor as to why McDonald’s sales are steadily falling. Customers, like this guy, are buying their favorite dollar menu items and burying them for a snack 20 years later. Why would you buy more cheeseburgers knowing you had hundreds squirrelled away? After all, winter isn’t coming.

To combat customers burying time capsules of snacks, McDonald’s is creating new menu items that actually decompose. Shamrock shake with Kale anyone? But hey, if anyone orders a 20-piece nuggets be sure to tweet @gregeezy, he’s got all the sauce for the next 20 years.

Steven Spielberg killed a dinosaur

This photo of director Steven Spielberg has been causing controversy ever since Jay Branscomb posted it on Facebook with the following caption:

Disgraceful photo of recreational hunter happily posing next to a Triceratops he just slaughtered. Please share so the world can name and shame this despicable man.

The photo prank plays off the recent outrage incited by photos of Kendall Jones, the cheerleader/hunting enthusiast, posing with dead rhinos, lions, and leopards she posted on Facebook. The joke took on a whole other life, however, once people started thinking Spielberg really did shoot a Triceratops for sport.

To reiterate: People thought the present day Steven Spielberg killed a dinosaur. To clarify: the picture was actually taken in 1993 on the set of Jurassic Park. The Triceratops is, of course, not real. Here are some of our favorites comments:

They Thought Steven Spielberg Killed a Dinosaur:

Steven Spielberg, I’m disappointed in you. I’m not watching any of your movies again ANIMAL KILLER.”

“Disgusting! I bet he only kept the horns!”

“Disgraceful. No wonder dinosaurs became extinct.”

“He should be in prison.”


Many of the commenters claiming to be outraged that Steven Spielberg killed a dinosaur are clearly joking, but it does seem like many people were truly fooled by the picture. But who knows; maybe the biggest fools are the people who think other people are stupid enough to believe dinosaurs still walk the Earth.

It does make you wonder what other secrets the director may be hiding though. What other terrible crimes against nature could he have commited? Did he capture an alien and force it to act in E.T.? Did the shark from Jaws really get killed? Did he go back in time to start World War II so he could make the Indiana Jones trilogy!? Until Spielberg makes an official statement to come clean about all of these very serious allegations, The Foundist can only assume our wild accusations are true.

After a long day of exploring Daytona Beach, a black bear decided to stretch out and get it’s bearings by lounging in a backyard hammock. The photographer, Rafael Torres, saw the bear climb into the hammock and take a 20 minute breather before heading back into the woods.

Bear’s must practice what they preach. In the immortal words of The Jungle Book‘s Baloo:

“So just try and relax, yeah cool it

Fall apart in my backyard…

And don’t spend your time lookin’ around

For something you want that can’t be found.

When you find out you can live without it,

And go along not thinkin’ about it

I’ll tell you something true,

The bare necessities of life will come to you.”

Drummers might be the world’s greatest multi-taskers. They’re hitting snares and smashing cymbals with both hands, while banging bass kicks and hi-hats with their feet. Unless they have a prehensile tail, there’s not room to do anything else – especially if it’s handling flying projectiles.

Weezer’s drummer Patrick Wilson managed the feat while playing a gig in Florida. He caught a frisbee in the middle of “Beverly Hills” without skipping a beat. Luckily an Instagram video caught the catch:

Weezer is touring all summer long. We would never recommend hurling things on stage, but it would be pretty sweet to see Wilson work a couple juggling pins into the act.

Reese Witherspoon was a naughty girl this past weekend – just check out this mugshot! Whilst driving with her husband, Jim Toth in Atlanta on Friday the couple was pulled over due to reports that Toth was driving in the wrong lane.  Reese gave the officer some Hollywood flack when he pulled them over saying, “Do you know who I am?” The officer clearly didn’t care and the couple was subsequently arrested. The diva was charged for disorderly conduct, while Jim was booked for driving while intoxicated.  They were jailed for a hot minute and then released on bond. Hopefully the Legally Blonde start can pull an Elle Woods when the pair has to appear in court. We have to admit though, even in a mugshot Reese still looks so sweet an innocent.

The term ‘Doggy Style’ just got taken to a new level this week after some photos on Facebook surfaced of dogs wearing pantyhose as a new style craze. According to the online magazine Bullett, it’s a new ‘thing’ for dogs in China. The trend is definitely a little creepy and we’re not sure how PETA is going to feel about the pooch pantyhose, but never the less check out some more doggy hosiery weirdness here.

Well it wouldn’t be the first time we’ve caught a glimpse of  Nicki’s naughty nipples. This time while filming a music video ft. Lil Wayne at a Hollywood mansion, her infamous nipples made an appearance. The wardrobe malfunction occurred during a scene in the jacuzzi, but no one around the star seemed too concerned. In fact they just kept rolling tape. With all these nip-slips we’re starting to think Nicki’s nipples may have a mind of their own. Watch the behind the scenes footage below as she films her new “Highschool” music video and catch the famous nipples, I mean Nicki.

No Russian language translation is needed to watch this “Hamster Trolls Policeman” video in order to get a laugh. The little mimicking hamster repeats whatever he hears as a man drives around in his car in Russia. When he gets pulled over by a policeman the little hamster continues to repeat what is said and it looks like he is back chatting the scary officer. The only thing more hilarious than the hamster giving it back to the policeman is that the guy driving the car is so amused by his little rodent friend that they almost look like best buddies. Watch as he sings and giggles with his BFF hamster.

Most of us ladies love a good beauty or fashion video tutorial. And there are plenty of them out there – from how to do a fishtail braid to how to create a smokey eye. But what happens when a tutorial goes horribly wrong? Thirteen year-old Tori Locklear found out the hard way in this video, which hit the internet just a week ago and already has almost 11 million views.

It’s less of a how-to video than a how-NOT-to tutorial on curling your hair. In the vid, now coined “Burning My Hair Off”, the very sweet teenager attempts to explain how to perfectly curl your hair with a curling iron.  She wraps her hair around the iron and then removes it to reveal what she hopes will be a perfectly curled piece of hair. Sadly, that isn’t the case. Thankfully hair grows back!

What would Tupac think about this? Snoop Dogg – sorry, Lion – took to his Instagram account to share a pic of one of his usual blunt-smoking sessions – with one key difference. Apparently, the former D-O-Double-G likes to get his nails did as much as you or I, as he can be seen sporting a set of French tips to rival any Upper East Side housewife’s. His caption? “French tips for the French enhale (sic).”

Now, we had thought that the French manicure went out with acrylics in the ’90s. But if a legend like Snoop is advocating this look, maybe it’s something worth reconsidering.

So tell us what you think of Snoop’s nail statement. Do you think a rapper can pull off a manicure? Is the french manicure on its way back in? Sound off in the comments.

With so many vacuum cleaners on the market it’s hard to tell which vacuums suck and which ones do not do a great job...
