Move over fidget spinner. There’s a new sheriff in town.

We are about 15% through 2018 which means time is ticking. And time waits for no one. Especially not for KFC UK who ran out of chicken (bad planning on their part). Also if you don’t want to waste time you can now hire someone to attend events on your behalf while you sort of attend PLUS there is a new craze and it is disgusting AF.

?‍??Human Uber so you don’t have to do stuff you don’t want to

It was only a matter of time before humans were Uber-fied. The folks at Sony have created a way to outsource your presence. Find a minion who will go to the place you need to be and get them to wear the Chameleon Mask (which is basically a tablet with fancy headgear). Your face will then appear on the mask and it will be like you are right there (when you’re actually on your couch).

Some great uses for the Chameleon Mask which uses a human surrogate are:

  • when you want to appear slimmer but have eaten all the cake
  • bar fights
  • home affairs queues

??Tough tongue twisters

The first tongue twister (was it a tongue twister?) I learnt was in the back of a car on the way to Zimbabwe. It’s a long car ride so I had a lot of time to practice. “How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?”

Reader’s Digest released a list of the most difficult tongue twisters in English. And here are some of the shorter ones to try:

  • How can a clam cram in a clean cream can?
  • The sixth sick sheik’s sixth sheep’s sick.
  • Send toast to ten tense stout saints’ ten tall tents.

?Meet the new fidget spinner

The Pop It Pal is jumping on the Dr. Pimple Popper craze and has created a way for you to squeeze pimples over and over again. You can even buy a refill of pus and they come in light and dark skin tones. All for only $19.99 (which thanks to Cyril is only R232.69).

The Pop It Pal™ is made of skin safe silicone with an all natural pus that simulates the feel and popping of a huge pimple!

??KFC in the UK runs out of chicken

Yup due to a logistics issue, KFC has had to close down over 600 stores because they couldn’t supply any chicken. I remember ages ago at a McRib the waiter came up to us and had to explain that they had run out of ribs. He said it was the lowest point in his career.

And this lady’s idea just might work… ???
