Maybe She's Born With It, Maybe It's Wonkette's Weekly Top Ten
How are you guys today? I spent a lot of time debating whether or not I was gonna do a whole post on Robert Durst being found guilty, because that is thing I have been invested in for a very long time (although it now seems oddly anticlimactic) and I decided against because really, what am I going to say except "Oh damn, Robert Durst was found guilty, which seems about right since it was extremely obvious that he was guilty. I mean, you've seen 'The Jinx,' right? He literally said 'I killed them all.'" And I can say that here. You're welcome.
In other news we generally don't cover on this site, British stores are being warned not to sell excessive amounts of beans to children, as they very well could be participating in the new viral trend "beaning." "Beaning" involves throwing beans in people's driveways and actually sounds pretty wholesome as far as moral panics are concerned. Kids these days: Not smoking, not really doing drugs, not really having sex, just ... dumping cans of beans on people's driveways. For Tik-Tok.
I do, however, appreciate the good job the Manchester Evening News has done to try and make it seem like, somewhat bad ass.
Police have issued a warning to shops over a concerning new viral trend involving baked beans. Shops have been urged to look out for children buying large quantities of the tinned goods, while parents are being encouraged to check their cupboards.
It comes after 'beaning', a bizarre new trend, took off on social video sharing app TikTok, the Mirror reports. 'Beaning' involves children smearing baked beans onto people's driveways, doors and cars - and, of course, filming it. Numerous videos have been posted on social media with the hashtag #beanbanditz.
The messy craze, which is also potentially harmful to dogs, has prompted West Yorkshire Police to issue a warning to retailers and parents.
Oh no! It's potentially harmful to dogs? Is there no daytime talk show that can straighten these out of control teens out?
Anyway, here are your top ten posts of the week!
