What’s the worst Halloween costume you chose to wear?

Check out the top pop culture costume from the year you were born…

Pop culture costumes are ALWAYS trendy for Halloween.  And that’s not a new thing.

“Cosmopolitan”recently put together a list of the, quote, “Halloween costume everyone was wearing the year you were born.”

Now, really, it’s more of a list of something that was hot in pop culture every year since 1950 . . . but still, a lot of them are hard to argue with.  Here are some highlights . . .

1955 . . . James Dean in “Rebel Without a Cause”.

1960 . . . Marion Crane in “Psycho” (Dave).

1969 . . . Elvis.

1977 . . . Princess Leia.

1981 . . . Indiana Jones.

1983 . . . Madonna.

1987 . . . RoboCop (Bic).

1996 . . . Ghostface from “Scream”.

2004 . . . Captain Jack Sparrow.

2008 . . . the cast of “High School Musical”.

A woman’s Facebook rant telling her neighbors to give out better Halloween candy goes viral…

To some people, even Halloween candy is a status symbol.

A woman in Rancho Cucamonga, California recently posted a rant on a neighborhood Facebook page with a message for her neighbors this Halloween.

Quote, “Over the last three Halloweens . . . cheap candy has somehow infiltrated our community and it has to stop.”

She also says that while, quote, “Dum Dums, Smarties, and Jolly Ranchers” might be okay for some other cities nearby, quote, “We are an affluent neighborhood and this status should be reflected in our candy provisions for Halloween.”

So she’s begging her neighbors to start handing out FULL SIZE candy bars, or giving each kid four to six fun size bars.

The post wound up on a Twitter account called Best of Nextdoor, and now it’s going viral.

A guy got fired, then kept showing up to collect paychecks for four years…

This guy had the best gig in the world for a while.  Too bad he was probably committing fraud . . .

47-year-old Ronald Berry used to work as a subway cleaner for the MTA in New York, until he got fired a few years ago.

But apparently no one told payroll.  So for four years, he just kept showing up on payday to collect his paychecks.

And in that time they’ve paid him roughly $250,000.  Then he went last Thursday to get his check, and cops arrested him.

Ronald says he didn’t think he was doing anything wrong.  He claims he went on sick leave for high blood pressure and asthma.  And he thought the paychecks were legit.

His pay stubs listed his hours, which he knew he didn’t work.  But he claims no one ever told him he was fired.  And it’s the MTA’s fault, not his.

They arrested him for trespassing when he showed up to get his check.  It’s not clear if he’s also facing fraud charges.

Go here for a photo of Ronald.

More results . . .

A new survey found the top four things we worry about that make us lose sleep.  And they are . . .

  1. Money, 32%.
  2. Relationship problems, 20%.
  3. Work problems, 15%.
  4. Fear of missing out and other social life problems, 4%.

The survey also asked people what makes them happier:  Spending money or saving money?  And believe it or not, two out of three people say SAVING makes them happier . . . at least long term.

 

The Moore Yoou Knooow!

Random facts to feed your brain…

  1. Your head ages faster than your feet . . . although just by nanoseconds. It’s because your head is slightly closer to Earth’s gravitational field.
  1. The largest country in Europe is Ukraine. It’s about 22,000 square miles bigger than France.
  1. It’s legal to own a flamethrower in 48 states. Only California and Maryland have banned them.
  1. The Village People didn’t come up with the “Y-M-C-A” arm movements people do to the song. The audience started doing it when they performed on “American Bandstand” in 1979, so they decided to incorporate it into their act.
