Bride With No Female Friends Has All Male Bridesmaids
Rebeca Abrantes was preparing to walk down the aisle when she realized she didn’t have any female friends to stand up for her as bridesmaids. So the 24-year-old engineering student got creative and chose five male classmates for her bridal party.
Abrantes wanted to keep things traditional and assembled a “bachelorette” party complete with all the fixin’s. The guys wore pink, short robes, and the bride was seen online with her hair pinned up in curlers as the group sported cucumber slices over their eyes.
With 56 guys at her school and only four girls, Rebeca says “it’s not like I had a lot of choices.”

Man Sues Hershey’s For Under-Filling Their Boxes
One Missouri man took notice that his box of Hershey’s Whoppers didn’t have as much candy as it should. So her took matters into his own chocolatey hands and called a lawyer.
A federal lawsuit filed by Robert Bratton makes the claim that the candy company is shorting folks on their boxes, with Reese’s Pieces boxes being skimmed by 29% and Whoppers boxes by 41%.
“Slack fill,”  as it’s called, is the empty space in packaging that sometimes serves a purpose, like potato chips during transport and displays. Hersehy’s lawyers say, “consumers are well aware of the fact that substantially all commercial packaging contains some empty space.”
Bratton, however, isn’t backing down. He says the large amount of space was “an ascertainable loss” because “the actual value of the Products as purchased was less than the value of the Products as represented.”
The case is ongoing.

STUPID CRIMINALS:

Cops catch pigeon with backpack of drugs:
Local authorities in Kuwait captured a pigeon in an airport who was wearing a suspicious backpack that contained 178 pills. It wasn’t immediately clear exactly what kind of pills the bird was packing at first, but tests revealed that it was ecstasy. If this sounds strange, it’s not the first time a pigeon has been nabbed for narcotics smuggling. In 2015, Costa Rican prison guards caught a bird flying cocaine and weed into the slammer.
