“Congratulations, son, you’re about to be famous.”

While the officer is addressing those words to the perp, I think it’s also true for Lt. Higgins himself. His passion and determination to get whoever it was that robbed Stelly’s Restaurant is palpable. Seriously, this guy is a star:

“The Sheriff likes Stelly’s restaurant. And so do I….We’re going to identify you, arrest you, and put you in a small cell. After that, I’m going to have a cheeseburger here, with fries and a coke…Meanwhile, your next meal with be served through a small hole in a cell door.”

Trust me on this. Watch it after the break.

The Colorado Cherry Company recently had an unwelcome visit from a bear who gorged himself on fruit-filled treats. The bear broke into the Lyons location and helped himself to 24 cherry pies and 14 apple pies. He even took a couple for the road.

Interestingly enough, he left the strawberry rhubarb untouched because it didn’t agree with his refined bear palate. Still, he enjoyed his visit so much that he left a five-star Yelp review.

Check out the bear, his Yelp review, and a video after the break.

lays-do-us-a-flavor

For the last three years, Lay’s has been soliciting new potato chip flavor ideas with a contest cleverly named “Do Us A Flavor.” Many of the flavors from previous years have been uninspired to say the least, but this year’s finalists actually seem like they would be incredibly delicious.

The four flavors include: Kettle Cooked Greektown Gyro, Wavy West Coast Truffle Fries, Southern Biscuits and Gravy, and New York Reuben. Man—this might be a tough choice to make.

On that note, voting opens up July 27th. And while we wait, there’s a video of Nick Lachey surprising each finalist with the good news after the break…

minion toy

McDonald’s is under fire for its new Minion Happy Meal toy which appears to say “What the f*ck?!” whenever it’s turned on and tapped. So what the f*ck happened? The fast food chain responded by saying that “Minions speak ‘Minionese,’ which is a random combination of languages and nonsense words.”

McDonald’s also told THR that the Caveman Minion is actually saying: “para la bukay,” “hahaha,” and “eh eh.”

Check out the NSFW demonstration after the jump and decide for yourself.
