Forget Pineapple, There’s A New Controversial Pizza Topping

Love it or hate it, pineapple on pizza is a divisive subject. But now there’s a new topping causing controversy on social media. A Twitter user named @MoonEmojii recently posted a photo of a round pizza covered in strawberry slices! There was no explanation for this unusual add-on, just this caption: “strawberries>>pineapples.”

It’s a lot to take in, we know. But it seems that @MoonEmojii thinks strawberries are better on pizza than pineapple. And the people of the Internet just can’t handle that idea. The post has been retweeted thousands of times already and most people are commenting to express outrage over the fruit topping.

“The police are on their way, I hope it was worth it,” one user tweeted. And a lot of others shared their disgust of strawberries on pizza, even though most of us have probably never tried it. But one user tried to unify people with their dislike, tweeting, “Pineapple and non-pineapple pizza eaters must put our differences aside and join forces to defeat this evil.”

Some folks tweeted they weren’t as repulsed by strawberries as a pizza topping when they considered how good fruit and cheese plates are. And they’re not wrong. But when you add tomato sauce to the mix, that’s when you really start losing people.

Study says being more attractive could hurt your job hunting

If you're looking for work, it might help if you're not too good looking -- that's the gist of a new study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology

According to a study performed by researchers at the American Psychological Association, someone who is too good looking will likely be at a disadvantage if seeking an honest day's work at "less glorious positions." 

Using pictures of both attractive people and less so posing as "applicants," more than 750 people were asked to categorize each person into either a less glamorous gig -- like a warehouse job or customer service position -- or a more desirable job like a project manager. 

According to a press release, the researchers found that the test subjects in large margin put the better looking people in the more glamorous gig; meaning in "real life," if a good looking person happened to be seeking a job deemed less desirable, they might be left wanting. 

“We found that participants perceived attractive individuals to feel more entitled to good outcomes than unattractive individuals, and that attractive individuals were predicted to be less satisfied with an undesirable job than an unattractive person,” explains lead author Margaret Lee in a release.

Walmart Throwing Holiday Parties This Season

Although it may still seem too soon for some people, now that Halloween's over the focus is going to shift to the holiday season, and retailers are going to be pulling out all the stops to get you in their doors and spending money. Well, Walmart is one of those stores trying to attract customers away from shopping at Amazon and they plan to do that by throwing more than 20,000 holiday parties in their Supercenters, and, believe it or not, those parties are set to start this weekend. 

So what should shoppers expect at these parties? Well, they’ll have the opportunity to take selfies with Santa, and each store will be filled with holiday helpers that will assist customers in finding what they need, aiding in customer pickup of online orders, getting them to the shortest check out line and more.

The first parties are scheduled for this Saturday, where catalog will be handed out, along with stickers for kids to mark off what they want their parents to get for them this year. Future parties will center around holiday entertaining and the most popular presents of the season, with about 165,000 demonstrations expected to take place in store during the holiday season.

People Love Dogs More Than Other Humans

It’s no secret that people love their dogs like family, but according to a new study, people may actually love their dogs more than family, because research has proven that people love dogs more than other humans.

Two new studies reveal just how much people care about animals and it’s often way more than people. In one, they showed people fake campaigns, one asking to donate money to save a human from a “slow, painful death,” and another asking to help a dog in the same situation, and more people gave money to help out the dog. 

Another study out of Northwestern University sought to gauge people’s empathy by showing them news clippings about a baseball bat attack on a puppy, an adult dog, a year-old infant and a 30-year-old adult. Overall people showed the least empathy for the adult human, and only the baby got more empathy than an adult dog.
