The Mysterious Death Of The New York Groundhog

Groundhog1

(PCM) There has been a ton of public scrutiny surrounding the death of the groundhog that was dropped by New York mayor Bill de Blasio during the Groundhog Day ceremony at the Staten Island Zoo.

It seems that the groundhog that was used in the ceremony died about a week later and many are claiming the the groundhog’s death had been covered up. The groundhog known as Staten Island Chuck was dropped by the mayor right after he was placed in his hands by the zookeeper.

Apparently, the animal sadly passed away a week later, but the news of the groundhogs death was only publicly revealed this past Thursday. Sources claim that the zoo was told not to tell the mayor about the groundhogs death.

The deeper that people dig the more information that comes forward. It also turns out that Staten Island Chuck was not even the actual groundhog used during this year’s ceremony. A groundhog by the name of Charlotte acted as a stand-in during this years celebration.

After being dropped, Charlotte was examined by medial professionals at the zoo who reported that the fall had caused no injuries to the animal. The zoo claims that Charlotte died of natural causes, however a necropsy showed that she dies of internal injuries. Zookeepers say that those more than likely occurred the night before she died and still had nothing to do with being dropped by the mayor.

Burgers That Taste Like Human Flesh?

Human-flesh-burger

(PCM) To promote the upcoming fifth season of the hit AMC television series “The Walking Dead” two London chefs have created their own human-flesh burgers.

The idea for the burgers formed from a collaboration between Chef James Tomlinson of London Mess and Miss Cakehead, who specialize is gory food creations. The human-flesh burgers will be available at a special pop-up restaurant called “Terminus Tavern” on September 30th.

If you are curious just how these chef’s got their human-flesh inspiration, rest assured they are not cannibals. They instead studies the accounts of actual well-known cannibals such as explorer William Seabrook and murderer Issei Sagawa. Still a little disturbing if you ask us!

Seabrook claimed that the taste of human flesh was “good,  like fully developed veal, not young, but not yet beef.” Sagawa said that human flesh melted in his mouth “like raw tuna in a sushi restaurant.” Yuck!

To create that human-flesh flavor the chefs created a blend of pork, veal, bone marrow and chicken livers for the burgers.  I think we would have to pass on these as they just sound too gross and disturbing. How about you? Would you try the human-flesh burger?

Worried About The Zombie Apocalypse? Kansas Has It Under Control!

Zombie-apocalypse1

(PCM) For those that fear an impending zombie apocalypse, you might want to pack your bags and think about heading straight for Kansas.

Kansas State governor Sam Brownback is gearing up to proclaim the month of October as “Zombie Preparedness Month” as part of a new campaign being introduced by the Kansas Division of Emergency Management. Brownback will sign a proclamation in support of the event on September 26th.

It is the Division of Emergency Management’s hope that by honing in on the incredible popularity of zombies within current pop culture that they will be able to get more people to take action and become involved with emergency preparations in the state.

The officials claim that preparing for an impending zombie apocalypse would be no different than preparing for any type of disaster, as people should still learn preparation tactics such as having plenty of supplies on hand and a solid emergency plan. Kansas is known for suffering from tornadoes, severe storms and more, so pretty much if you can handle zombies than you can handle other types of disaster situations.

The theme for “Zombie Preparedness Month” is “If you’re prepared for zombies, you’re prepared for anything!”

The Jasmine Tridevil Third Breast Story Appears To Be A Hoax

Jasmine-Tridevil1

(PCM) It was only a matter of time before the story that was circulating the internet yesterday about a woman named Jasmine Tridevil who claimed to have a surgically implanted third breast was researched by Snopes.com and labeled a hoax.

The story began popping up on social media yesterday that claimed the woman from Florida, Jasmine Tridevil underwent cosmetic surgery to have a third breast implanted and the media began re-posting several of the same images and videos that showcased the alleged third breast.

According to Snopes.com, many of these outlets failed to look any deeper into the story or even question if this procedure was surgically possible. All of the photos shared were self-taken and could have easily been faked and no one bothered to dig up any background information at all.

In her story, Ms. Tridevil (which is obviously a fake name) claims that she was asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement for the doctor who performed the alleged procedure, so therefore she covered her tracks for anyone looking to speak with the doctor to corroborate her story. She claims she went to over 50 doctors before locating one who would do the procedure and also claims to have spent $20,000 total on the procedure and having an areola tattooed.

The only sources of any information about Tridevil came directly from both her personal Facebook and Youtube pages and the alleged third breast is never seen without being covered by some type of clothing. Also, if you look closely at some of the video footage the breast in questions appears to be a completely different skin tone.

Tridevil claims that she wanted to procedure done to make herself “less attractive to men” however surgeons are ethically bound to decline surgical procedures on patients with certain mental health concerns. Tridevil’s claim about wanting to look less attractive would surely fit into this category.

Tridevil claimed to have booked appearances on both Jimmy Kimmel and Inside Edition however there has been no evidence to support these claims, also when Snopes spoke with a plastic surgeon he explained that a surgical procedure such as implanting a third breast would be “lengthy and exhaustive” and could take up to “one year” to complete.

Snopes also dug up the fact that the woman calling herself Jasmine Tridevil bears a striking resemblance to a model by the name of Alicia Hessler, which also happens to be the name that the domain JasmineTridevil.com is registered. Tridevil also bears a strong resemblance to a Florida massage therapist by the name of Alisha Jasmine Hessler.

The weblisting for Alisha’s Golden Touch Massage features banners that read “provider of internet hoaxes since 2014″ and “specialist in massage of three-breasted women”. If that doesn’t seriously having you leaning towards this being a hoax then we don’t know what would.

Sorry internet…looks like you have been had!

Starbucks Set To Introduce A Beer-Flavored Coffee

Dark-Barrel1

(PCM) For some reason coffee and beer are two words that do not pair up together well in my mind, however Starbucks has revealed plans to test a new fall season drink called a “Dark Barrel Latte” that will taste like stout beer.

According to sources the “Dark Barrel Latte” will be made with a flavored syrup that is meant to taste like dark beer such as Guinness, the syrup will be added to espresso and steamed milk. It will be topped with whipped cream and dark caramel sauce and also be available as a Frappucinno option as well. The flavor has been described as “roasted malt flavor”.

Just in case there were any lingering concerns about the thought of Starbucks actually serving legit beer, the chocolate stout flavored syrup does not contain any actual beer.

The test markets for the new “Dark Barrel Latte” have not yet been confirmed, however it appears a few people in the Columbus, OH area have had a chance to check it out!
