WHY PATTI PIES WENT VIRAL…FINALLY POSITIVE NEWS!

Published 11/18/15

pieMany are wondering why Patti Labelles’ now famous Sweet Potato pies have gone viral.  Well, let’s face it…this is definitely timing.

In a world so full of destruction and violence; a small break from reality is exactly what we all needed.  Hence, the focus around something so simple as a pie.

The viral video posted by James Wright received millions of views within days.  If you haven’t viewed it take a look here and get your laugh on!  He is said to be a part of the reason why so many Walmart stores sold out of the pies within hours.

So for those who believe it’s insane that people are focusing on something as trivial as a pie…it comes down to happiness.  We as humans are naturally designed to desire positivity in our lives…so this fills the void.

And for the unlucky ones who were unable to get a bite into the pie, I can attest…it’s really tasty!  I was able to steal a crumb recently and thoroughly enjoyed it!

As for Ms. Patti Labelle…we wish you continued success and thank you for providing a tiny moment of joy in our lives.  Even if it comes from a pie:).

DO YOU STILL BLOG? RECENT NEWS AND INQUIRING MINDS INSPIRE RETURN

Blogger Brittaj17

Blogger Brittaj17

It has been a while since my last blog. Many have asked the question “Do you still blog?” Well…that finally inspired me to write again. If you’re a blogger you can probably relate to “writers block”; which is apparently the syndrome I was dealing with for the past few month’s. The thoughts were in my head of many things I wanted to write about, but my fingers refused to cooperate!

So what’s been going on in the world? Well, we all know Simon Cowell shared some good and bad news recently. The self-absorbed ego maniac finally gave birth to a baby boy named Eric (how original).  We are all hopeful this will now remind him that “the world does NOT revolve around Simon”.  However, with the good comes the bad; he also learned his beloved creation The X Factor was canceled after only 3 seasons.  Now this was disappointing to hear, because the production value and talent far exceeded any other singing competition.  Oh well!  I guess The Voice knocked him off his feet.

Other happenings…the return of Jennifer Lopez (aka JLo) to American Idol this season.  It was exhilarating to hear she would join the lackluster team of judges.  She is clearly the best judge of any show and offers the most comprehensive advice.  Unfortunately, for me the show seems VERY flat this year and I’m not sure she can save them.  Idol may need some type of boost or may find themselves on the chopping block along with The X Factor.  It is shocking, since the early rounds showcased some great talent…but they obviously cut the WRONG singers.  The chemistry among judges also seems to be lacking…although Harry Connick Jr can be pretty funny.  Am I alone with these thoughts?  Make sure to chime in.

Did you hear about the Las Vegas gambler?  It was funny to hear that a man apparently consumed over 20 drinks while at the casino and lost over $500k!  Of course, he is doing the “American thing”; suing the casino for loaning him all that cash while intoxicated.  Let’s hope Californian Mark Johnston refrains from gambling while drunk in the future.  Will he win the case?  Probably, since it’s illegal for casino’s to loan money while consumers are intoxicated. Only in America!

Who can forget the outrage felt around the world about the verdict in the “Loud Music Shooting?”  It was very disappointing to hear that teens can be killed over something so trivial and a man can basically “get off” on murder charges.  Let’s face it, Michael Dunn could have called the police and gone about his business.  If he was so fearful for his life, why did he follow them and become a reckless vigilante?  Why do we need police if civilians can run around with guns, shooting people like in the “Wild Wild West”.  There was clearly malice and intent for him to shoot at them so many times.  Did the jury really have to fight about this verdict?  Seriously, this was an “open and shut” case.  Whoever believes this was NOT about race is delusional.   Hoping that 17-year-old Jordan Davis haunts Dunn in his dreams.  That man deserves to suffer for a very long time.

How does a huge airplane come up missing?  Well this is hard to comprehend, but it happened this week.  Apparently Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 lost contact with air control and 239 crew and passengers are now missing.  Wow…it seems like a scene from a movie.  Let’s hope they find it and all are safe.

Of course there has been so much more interesting news.  However, this is just my quick return to the “blogging world“.  Thanks to my loyal follower’s for asking…and inspiring me to write again.  But it is the start of the spring housing market, so let’s hope that does not slow my blogging down again!

[VIDEO] 2013: “THE WORST TWERK EVER FAIL” VIDEO GOES VIRAL; GIRL CATCHES ON FIRE…FAKE?

This video starts out nice enough, a girl getting her grove on in a lonely apartment.  But after she is abruptly interrupted and catches on fire…the video heats up.  It may be why it has already gone viral and has over 7 million views on Youtube…AND COUNTING!  It instantly hit 3 million views but doubled vitually overnight.

Not sure if it was such a great idea dancing with a door….you may NOT want to try this at home!  Looks like she may get fame whether she was looking for it or not…it’s really amazing what goes viral these days.  Are we all just idiots?

Was I the only one who had to look up Twerking?  Man, I must be getting old!

Update: According to many news outlets it is fake and many of us are suckers for believing it.  If it looks too perfect to be true…typically that’s a sign.  Crap….my brother said it looked fake all along….guess he is the smart one in the family:)!

WHY DIDN’T MY VIDEO TO SIMON COWELL GO VIRAL?  UGH….SIMON NEVER EVEN CALLED ME!  SHOULD I SHAKE MY BOOTY IN FRONT OF MY DOOR?

[VIDEO] CANADIAN MOM OF AUTISTIC CHILD RECEIVES HATEFUL LETTER GOES VIRAL

It is official…the writer of this vicious letter is going straight to hell!  This week a Canadian family announced that they received an extremely cruel letter aimed at their 13-year-old autistic son.

News outlets reported that the anonymous letter stated several hateful things, including; they should euthanize their son, take action over her “retarded” son, move from the neighborhood, and that noise he makes when he is outside is DREADFUL! It scares the hell out of my normal children!”.

The letter instantly went viral after being posted on the Twitter account of Brad and MaryLynne Stella, from the country duo The Stellas.  The tweet from @TheStellas read: “This letter was anonymously slipped to our good friend regarding her autistic boy Max. This is appalling.”  Their famous daughters then tweeted more about the situation, causing outrage around the World.

Canadian mom, Karla Begley, went public and was in tears when she described how she felt reading it.  Who wouldn’t feel pain reading someone wants you to kill your own innocent child?  There are so many parents with children affected by this illness and trying to cope.  No worries…support is what Karla has received since then.  Do you know how many children are autistic?  ALOT!

It’s a sad day when someone with a child with disabilities is targeted with so much hate.  Police authorities claim that this is not a “hate crime“, but seriously, it is exactly that.

Obviously the author of this ridiculous letter lives on their block…let’s hope they find out who, so they can be targeted with hate mail.  I’m sure they will NOT like how it feels to receive such a painful letter.

On a positive note; maybe this will cause more awareness when it comes to Autism.

What do you think?  Does whoever wrote this letter deserve a severe punishment?

[VIDEO] 2013: KTVU NEWS ASIANA PLANE CRASH PILOT NAME PRANK GOES VIRAL; LAWSUITS PENDING

The news anchor at KTVU is probably taking a bottle of Zanax as this blog is being written. During a news report of the recent Asiana plane crash, which killed 3 passengers, she read a script verbatim. Apparently someone behind the scenes did not check facts properly about the pilot names and she repeated the fake names live on the air.

Over 9 million have viewed the now viral Youtube video, but it’s no joke. The embarrassing move has caused Asisana Airlines and others to prepare lawsuits against the news outlet. CHECK OUT THE NAMES ON THE SCREEN…WOULD YOU HAVE FIGURED IT OUT?

This goes to show, many anchors are just talking heads.  Had she paid attention to what she was saying, it would have been obvious the names were clearly a bad prank.  News outlets also have several pre-screening checks to avoid this chaos.  What went wrong?

KTUV news allegedly reported that the facts were checked, but apparently by an inexperienced intern on the other end of the phone.  Some are just not buying that story….since there are strict rules in place for confirming deaths in crashes.

Who would pull such a sick prank?  Someone clearly going straight to hell.  As for the anchor, not sure if she will ever work on air again…but is it her fault?
