There’s a plan to storm Area 51 to find the truth about aliens … Stores are locking their ice cream freezers to protect themselves from lickers … A obese monkey named “Uncle Fatty” has escaped from fat camp in Thailand …

Contests on the show…

There’s a plan to storm Area 51 to find the truth about aliens because “they can’t stop all of us”…

The best case scenario in this plan is you get pepper sprayed.  The middle case is you get shot and go to prison.  The worst case is you get vaporized by an alien.

There’s a Facebook event circulating right now called “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us.”

It’s a plan for tons of people to descend on Area 51 in Nevada to find out the truth about UFOs.  Or, as the invitation says, quote, “Let’s see them aliens.”

If you’re interested, it’s on Friday, September 20th at 3:00 A.M.  And more than 200,000 PEOPLE have said they’re planning to go.  I predict a lot of them will flake.

Now some stores are locking their ice cream freezers to protect themselves from lickers…

I’m begging you:  Just leave the ice cream alone.  This CAN’T be the big trend of the summer.

There’s been a run lately of people going viral for LICKING ice cream at a store then putting it back in the freezer.

So now, apparently, some stores are LOCKING their ice cream freezers so they’re not the next victims.  People have been tweeting photos from stores with locks on their freezers, with signs like “Please see employee for help.”

If this all feels vaguely familiar, it’s kind of like what happened during the Tide Pod Challenge . . . where some stores started locking up their Tide Pods to keep dummies from buying and eating them.

And in today’s “ice cream tamperer of the day” story, a woman who owns a small grocery store in Florida was arrested for tampering with the ice cream at the store next door, including spitting, picking her nose, and peeing into it.

A spectacularly obese monkey named “Uncle Fatty” has escaped from fat camp in Thailand…

I’ve never seen a monkey this SPECTACULARLY OBESE before and now I just want to find him and give him cheeseburgers and a hug.

There’s a monkey in Thailand whose name is UNCLE FATTY.  He weighs over 33 pounds, which is twice the average for his species.

And it got so bad that he got sent to the monkey equivalent of a fat camp a few years ago.  It worked, too . . . he dropped 8% of his weight and the staff there decided he was just about ready to be released back in with the rest of the monkeys.

Then he disappeared.  That’s right:  Uncle Fatty somehow managed to escape from fat camp.

Sadly, the staff thinks there’s a chance he’s dead . . . because they can’t find him and monkeys will isolate themselves when they know they’re dying so other monkeys won’t witness it.

One of his handlers said, quote, “He might have died of old age because Uncle Fatty has already lived beyond the age average.”  I hope he feels like he lived his best life.

More results . . .

The most likely person to do it is . . . your dad, obviously.  People over 55 were more than twice as likely as people under 24 to leave a trip early to try to beat traffic.
