Emotional video of a woman protesting the abuse of her…chicken

Yes eggs. Here’s a must-see video of a woman named Kelly Atlas of the animal rights group Direct Action Everywhere who invaded the Bluestem Brasserie in San Francisco and tearfully scolded diners for eating eggs:

She’s mad that diners are laughing at her. For real. Read these tweets and you’ll laugh, too:

@kellyemilyatlas @DxEverywhere She is an object. To be baked, fried, grilled. #firedchicken #bbqchicken

Just a few eggs short?

In the video, Atlas cries to diners about eating “somebody else’s eggs.” Which raises this obvious question:

.@kellyemilyatlas Serious question for you – Are you pro-abortion?

— Kimberly Morin (@Conservativeind) October 4, 2014

We all know the answer to that. Pro-choice on abortion is different than pro-choice at breakfast: scrambled, fried, poached, etc.

These Words Of Wisdom Are Brought To You By The Greatest Comedic Minds.

When people think of comedy, they usually think of going to a show and having mindless fun. Though if you really pay attention, you can find little hidden gems of wisdom in a comedian’s act. Comedians often say profound and inspiring things that you didn’t notice because you were laughing too hard. That’s the great part of comedy: you can laugh just as much as you can learn. 

1.) “I think sometimes that people think brave means not being afraid, which of course it doesn’t mean that at all. It means that you’re afraid, but you move past that and do it anyway, do what you think is right.” – Craig Ferguson

2.) “What you want to worship above youth, I think, is beauty, and beauty is so beyond just appearances after a while. Because you can be with someone who’s good-looking; if they open their mouths and they’re an idiot, then they cease to be beautiful very quickly.” – Patton Oswalt

3.) “It used to be, everyone was entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts. But that’s not the case anymore. Facts matter not at all. Perception is everything.” – Stephen Colbert

4.) “Desperation is a necessary ingredient to learning anything, or creating anything. Period. If you ain’t desperate at some point, you ain’t interesting.” – Jim Carrey

5.) “You should bring something into the world that wasn’t in the world before. It doesn’t matter what that is. It doesn’t matter if it’s a table or a film or gardening—everyone should create. You should do something, then sit back and say ‘I did that.'” – Ricky Gervais

6.) “You know what it’s like having five kids? Imagine you’re drowning. And someone hands you a baby.” – Jim Gaffigan

7.) “I talk for a living, so I should be able to say anything I want to say regardless of how you feel. What we’re starting to deal with now is your opinion matters, but to be quite honest, your opinion means nothing.” – Patrice O’Neal

8.) “I have found that the only thing that does bring you happiness is doing something good for somebody who is incapable of doing it for themselves.” – David Letterman

9.) “So many people prefer to live in drama because it’s comfortable. It’s like someone staying in a bad marriage or relationship – it’s actually easier to stay because they know what to expect every day, versus leaving and not knowing what to expect.” – Ellen DeGeneres

smh

10.) “The whole idea of love is scary – so is being with someone for the rest of your life and being happy with them for the rest of your life. There’s lots of research to suggest that, actually, love’s not really that simple.” – Aziz Ansari

11.) “Politics has become infused with narcissism in America.” – John Oliver

hbo

12.) “The more you do stuff, the better you get at dealing with how you still fail at it a lot of the time.” – John Mulaney

13.) “If you’re quiet, you’re not living. You’ve got to be noisy and colorful and lively.” – Mel Brooks

14.) “The funny guy doesn’t get the girl until later in life. High school, college, everyone still wants the brooding, dangerous guy you shouldn’t have.” – Will Ferrell

15.) “I used to think you had to live this miserable life and that that would make you funnier, but you don’t. The misery will come. The misery will find you.” – Bill Burr

16.) “I did end up doing substitute teaching, but there’s not a lot of teaching involved in that.” – Todd Barry

17.) “Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.” – Jerry Seinfeld

18.) “I like my life alone. I mean, I love being with friends, and I love kissing and loving someone to pieces. But it’s hard to find someone who doesn’t ultimately start judging you and your choices.” – Sarah Silverman

19.) “A man is only as faithful as his options.” – Chris Rock

bet

20.) “Work hard, be kind, and amazing things will happen.” – Conan O’Brien

21.) “Life isn’t something you possess. It’s something you take part in, and you witness.” – Louis C.K.

22.) “In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.” – Bill Cosby

23.) “The world can’t tell you who you are. You’ve just got to figure out who you are and be there, for better or worse.” – Dave Chappelle

Comedy is an important part of society, so make plans to go see a live stand-up show. You won’t be disappointed. I guarantee it. You may even learn something.

Day 1: ‘Hey, What’s The Neighbor Doing To His Lawn?’ Day 60: ‘OMG!!’

During the summer, nothing is better than the smell of freshly cut grass. That is, unless, you have a giant vegetable garden growing in the place of your lawn. Instead of turf, this awesome homeowner, user locolukas on Reddit, opted for tomatoes. The results are absolutely epic.

What you see actually used to be a lawn.

But instead of mowing grass, one man decided to say “screw the lawn” and plant vegetables.

He filled his yard’s grid with compost that the city gave away.

Seeds began growing quickly and he had to keep up by planting support systems around them.

He even developed an irrigation system, which is much more difficult than it looks.

He lined his garden with cinder blocks, covered the ground with wood chips and filled the cinder blocks with compost as well.

Arugula came in first.

This Dad Hilariously Illustrates The Weirdest Things He Said To His Kids.

Plenty of things happen to parents that you wouldn’t expect. You could read all the books and essays on the subject, but there will always be surprises when raising a child.

That’s how this dad felt when he recorded things he recently said to his own children. In fact, Nathan Ripperger noticed that the seemingly normal phrases he uttered would sound crazy if heard out of context. His hilarious illustrations prove him right. Take a look.

(H/T: Twisted Sifter.)

Sometimes kids are weird, but parenting can bring on its weirdness, too. If anyone from the outside world heard these out of context, though, it would make them stop and immediately turn away. Yikes!

When I'm at the pool I wear a shirt. Not b/c of insecurity, but because I respect others. In other words: Put some pants on Lena Dunham!

If it means an end to pictures of Lena Dunham without pants, maybe we should let the terrorists win.

There’s definitely a case to be made.

Will people who lost their minds over that innocuous "Say Yes to the Dress" ad also flip out over this garbage sauce? http://t.co/XsArNlnP0D

We highly doubt that. But this definitely seems plausible:

Theory: Lena Dunham dances pantsless in the vid in order to provoke criticism so she can claim misogyny. https://t.co/xitHCqt9ph

NY Times developer notices an ‘odd’-looking result in Miss. Senate primary

Derek Willis is an interactive developer for the New York Times who works on political and election-related applications. Today, Willis calls our attention to an unusual result in Mississippi’s June 3rd U.S. Senate primary: State Sen. Chris McDaniel received no votes in Harrison County’s Biloxi #10 voting precinct.

However, McDaniel received 224 votes in that same precinct in his run-off against incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran just three weeks later. Did McDaniel really win over more than two hundred Biloxi #10 voters between the primary and the run-off? Or, more likely, did someone make a mistake when tabulating the primary results?

Hard to argue with that.

These 9 Prisons Are Tough. Trust Me, You Don’t Want To End Up Here.

No one wants to end up prison. In fact, going to prison is usually the last thing on people’s lists. That being said, if you do end up having to go to prison, please make sure that it’s none of these places.

Just getting a glimpse of these nine toughest prisons on the planet will make you swear off a life of crime for good. (Suddenly, I hope my local gas station doesn’t realize I accidentally stole some gum last week…)

1.) Attica Correction Facility, Attica NY.

Some of the country’s most famous criminals have passed through the walls of the Attica Correction Facility in upstate New York. Aside from being a tough place just in and of itself, Attica specializing in holding inmates who were trouble makers at other facilities. Just to give you an idea of how serious Attica is, they have a tear gas system installed in the cafeteria, and it’s been used several times over the years. 

2.) Camp 22, North Korea.

Officially known as Kwan-li-so No. 22, Camp 22 is a political prison camp. It’s essentially a concentration camp completely cut off from the rest of the world. Inmates and sometimes even their families are subject to lifelong sentences here for petty crimes. According to the latest estimates, Camp 22 has at least 50,000 inmates. 

3.) Carandiru Penitentiary, Brazil.

Despite being officially close, the Carandiru Penitentiary located in San Paulo, Brazil still ranks among the toughest prisons in the world. It opened in 1920. At it’s highest point the facility was home to 8,000 inmates before it shut down in 2002. In 1992 a riot resulted in deaths of 111 inmates. The facility also had a major problem with the rampant spread of HIV. 

4.) San Quentin State Prison, San Quentin CA.

As the oldest prison in California, San Quentin is also the most notorious. Aside from the typical brutality of prison life, San Quentin is dangerously over capacity. It also has the state’s only death row for male inmates.

5.) Gitarama Central Prison, Rwanda.

The less said about this prison the better. Let’s just say the overcrowding in there is so bad prisons have had to sometimes eat each other to survive. Yep. Not a place you want to be.  

6.) Rikers Island, New York, NY

Riker’s Island is New York City’s primary prison and as such is a dangerous place. Located on an island between the Bronx and Queens, Riker’s has a reputation for brutality. If you have to commit a crime, don’t do it in New York City. You don’t want to end up at Riker’s

7.) La Sabaneta, Venezuela.

La Sabaneta is considered to be among the most brutal prisons in South America. Deplorable hygiene creates ample opportunity for the spread of deadly diseases. Not to mention the facility is understaffed, which only causes more brutality among the inmates. 

8.) Diyarbakır Prison, Turkey.

Since 1980 Diyarbakir Prison has housed Turkey’s most violent criminals. While incarcerated at Diyarbakir prisoners can expect to be tortured and subject to other horrific treatment from the guards. 

9.) ADX Florence Supermax Prison, Colorado.

The most dangerous criminals in the United States call the ADX Florence Supermax Prison home. ADX is known to have tightest security in the country, and most of the inmates here are kept in complete isolation. It’s known as the Alcatraz of the Rockies.
