It’s Married at First Sight, Not Love at First Sight. Bride Freaks Out Upon Seeing Her Groom

Reality tv has hit another all-time low with the latest series about “expertly” arranged marriages where the would-be couple agree to have their future spouse chosen for them and only meet on their wedding day. Needless to say, the bride, Jamie Otis, is less than thrilled upon seeing her new beau, Doug Hehner, for the first time at the altar of their nuptials…shocker. I honestly felt a little sick for the girl, but then I remembered, she did it to herself.

Check out the train wreck for yourself below and read an even wittier article about the experiment’s implosion here.


 

This Day In History – July 11

1798

The U.S. Marine Corps was formally re-established by “An Act for Establishing a Marine Corps” passed by the U.S. Congress! The act also created the U.S. Marine Band!

…and Bo Knows that’s a fact!

1999

Such an incredible story

A U.S. Air Force jet flew over the Antarctic and dropped off emergency medical supplies for Dr. Jerri Nielsen after she had discovered a lump in her breast. She was at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Research Center when she discovered the lump, and with it being winter-time in Antarctica, it made a supply rescue mission very difficult

She passed a way in 2009. RIP, Dr. Nielsen!

2011

Jewel and her husband Ty Murray welcomed their first child, Kase Townes Murray!

Happy Birthday, big guy:

I remember discovering Styx in second grade!!!

Happy anniversary to these guys!

New music…new tour…and a new way to get Garth tunes

Garth Brooks finally made the long-awaited announcement that fans have been waiting for since, well, he “retired” back in 2003 to spend time with his family.

It was actually a three-part announcement.  At a press conference Thursday morning, the 52 year old Brooks confirmed for the world that yes, he will be embarking on a world tour.  He also dropped the news that there’s new music on the way…he hinted a “double album” on it’s way in November, with a single in the next couple of months.

Oh, and it looks like he’s finally getting aboard the digital and social media trains: starting within a couple of weeks, you’ll be able to download songs (at ridiculously low prices) only at his website.  And a Facebook and Twitter account won’t be far behind.

He also addressed the situation of his five “warm up” concerts in Dublin being scrapped because of a permit issue.  Garth said that, while he understands his Irish fans are saddened, he is “a billion times more disappointed”.

Professional Potty Training is Now a Thing!

How much would it be worth to you if you knew that your child could be completely potty trained in two days by a professional?

A NYC potty training company runs $1,750 and is popular among busy parents. Other options include calls with specialists or a potty training boot camp where parents learn the ropes on how to train their own kids.

With parents willing to spend money on all sorts of things experts have found that many are receptive to the professional help.

Relive the best fireworks show in Kansas

Our friends at Wamego Fireworks Show were kind enough to post a full-length video of the amazing display from last Friday night.

Maybe you were there, and just want to see it again.  Maybe you want to show some of your friends what they missed.  Or maybe you had to work (like I did), and didn’t get to see it.

It doesn’t matter…click here and enjoy!
