Men’s beards are filled with more bacteria than dog fur…

Dogs lick garbage, dirt, and each other’s nether regions.  And yet . . . they’re STILL more hygienic than hipsters.

According to a new study out of Switzerland, believe it or not, men’s BEARDS are more likely to be filled with germs and bacteria than dog fur.

The researchers sampled men’s beards and some dogs’ fur, and they found that 100% of the men had high microbial counts in their facial hair . . . versus about three-quarters of the dogs.

And almost half the men had bacteria in their beards that could make someone sick.

An ice cream shop is selling a gelato burger… that’s a few scoops of ice cream on a chocolate bun…

Ice cream is evolving to the point where on one glorious day in the not-too-distant future, we’ll be able to get away with eating it for EVERY meal.

There’s an international ice cream chain called Amorino that just started serving a GELATO BURGER at two of its locations in New York.

It’s got two scoops of gelato and a topping like Nutella . . . all on a chocolate-flavored hamburger bun.

It sounds delicious, but so far, Amorino admitted it’s not super popular . . . mostly because people are confused about whether there’s also meat involved.  There’s not.

A couple gives cookies to striking workers… filled with laxatives…

Well this is definitely a new style of union busting.

The workers at the Claymont School District in eastern Ohio have been on strike for the past few weeks.  And many of them have been lining up outside of an elementary school in Uhrichsville, Ohio, and getting honks from drivers who support them.

But that’s been a real issue for a 29-year-old guy named Bo Cosens and his 25-year-old girlfriend Rachel Sharrock.  They live right across the street from the school, and all the noise was really getting to them.

So . . . last week, they baked a bunch of cookies to give to the workers.  And they spiked the cookies with LAXATIVES.

Fortunately, Bo had posted on Facebook about the plan . . . and someone who was on strike realized the cookies were laced.  So none of the striking workers ate the cookies . . . they just turned them over to the cops.

Bo and Rachel were both arrested and they’re both facing felony contamination charges.
