Vandals left fingerprints on American cheese slices…

Someone in Texas vandalized a car and covered it with slices of American cheese.  But the joke’s on them, because it turns out you can lift fingerprints off American cheese.  So now cops are trying to track them down.  A CSI guy who’s been working the case says you can actually get very clear prints off processed cheese.

A new study finds the exact age when we’re the most miserable…

It’s not easy being middle aged.

A new study out of Dartmouth College in New Hampshire looked at data from almost eight million Americans over the past three decades to figure out when people are the most MISERABLE.

And the answer is . . . when you’re 47.2 years old.

Basically, our happiness as adults goes in a U-shaped curve.  We’re happy when we’re 18, then we start getting more and more miserable over our 20s, 30s, and 40s.  It bottoms out when we’re 47.2 . . . and then we start getting happier again.

By the time you hit 70, you’re just as happy as you were when you were 18.

So why is middle age so depressing?  Basically, the researcher says it’s because you realize your big dreams really AREN’T going to come true.  Sorry.

But as you get older, you start to put your life in a better perspective and you become grateful for what you have, which is why you start getting happier again.

McDonald’s is now selling “adult cream pies” in Japan…

McDonald’s is selling a new menu item in Japan.  And the translation in English is NOT safe for work.

They’re called “Adult Cream Pies.”

In Japanese, the name is, “Otona No Cream Pie.”  And “otona no” literally means “adult” in English.

It doesn’t sound dirty over there though, because it’s a term normally used to describe sweet foods that aren’t TOO sweet.  They have a different word for adult entertainment stuff.  So only English speakers think it’s funny.

In the new ad, a young Japanese woman asks an older lady if Adult Cream Pies are, quote, “really delicious.”  And she responds by saying, “If you eat it once, you’ll be filled.”

They come in two different flavors:  Belgian Chocolate and Sweet Cheese.
