Offbeat News: Polish Socks, A Crispy Pizza & More

“Not Funny”

A Polish sock company, Nanushki has an interesting design for their socks. They chose to create socks designed to look like cartoon versions of Adolf Hitler. According to their website, they’re meant to “bring order in the sock drawer.” Mmkaaaay…

As you might imagine, the socks did not go over well with the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum. They were quick to slam the socks for using “one of the biggest criminals in history for marketing purposes.”

Due to the hate, Nanushki has renamed the socks “Patrick,” a financer with a “weak spot for fast cars.”

“Crispy… But Not Too Crispy”

Reddit user Rikardose has shared a hilarious receipt from a pizza delivery order that includes two very interesting sets of instructions from the customer.

First the customer asks for a particularly crispy crust. They write, “Crust a little crisper than normal. But not too crispy…” In case you were looking for a more thorough description, the customer was kind enough to elaborate. They continue, “If that’s not vague enough- make it like you’re taking revenge on a cheating boyfriend, but you still want to reconcile in the not so distant future.”

That was just the instructions for the pizza. Upon delivery, the customer notes, “The gate is tricky, please don’t break it. And the spider on the porch is called Frank. Be nice to Frank, he guards the tomatoes.” The receipt has since gone viral and garnered nearly 18,000 up votes on Reddit.

“Drinking on the Job”

The Vancouver Police Department is looking for volunteers to get drunk and eat pizza on their dime. The department sent out notices to select members of its Block Watch neighborhood watch program. It asked for 10 “volunteer drinkers” to go down to the police station and kick back a few drinks. The purpose is to train rookie cops how to conduct sobriety tests.

A few things need to be in place before you volunteer. You can’t be on any medication that can’t be mixed with alcohol and you have to sign a waiver promising not to drive the rest of the day.

Volunteers get to choose which hard liquor and mixer they prefer, but don’t expect any wine or beer. Lastly, police ask that volunteers act “in a respectful manner” while at the police station. All volunteers will be driven home at 4 PM, oh and don’t forget the free pizza!
