Heinz Actually Created A Cadbury Creme Egg-Flavored Mayo
When Heinz Mayo tweeted that they created Heinz Cadbury Creme Mayonnaise, we all naturally assumed it was a joke. They posted the news on April Fool’s Day, so it really seemed like a prank. But it turns out,we were wrong. On April 2nd, the company went ahead and confirmedon Twitterthat this odd condiment does indeed exist.
“We weren’t kidding,” the tweet offers. “Heinz Creme Egg Mayo is a thing!” And it goes on to offer a free sample at an event happening this weekend, so if you’re going to be in London and you’re feeling brave enough, stop by and give it a taste.
The ingredients are reportedly just mayo, mustard, and Cadbury Creme Eggs, but who wants to eat that?Okay…you first.
Croissant Corsage Is This Years Hottest Prom Accessory
The only way to truly impress your prom date is with a croissant corsage, apparently. Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen has partnered with Dallas-based florist Petals and Stems for the hottest new prom accessory.
The promotion, which began April 4, was actually inspired by a 2017 viral moment when teens were posting their text fails, by inadvertently asking if their dates wanted a croissant instead of a corsage. The autocorrect issue clearly had an impact.
The offer, which is sadly limited to the Dallas area, is currently available for $20. The croissant is surrounded by baby's breath and your choice of rose color. Plus, you'll score a $10 Cheddar's gift card with it.
Three-Year-Old Locks Parents Out of iPad for 25,536,442 Minutes
A man in Washington, D.C., was locked out of his iPad for more than 25 million minutes, or 48 years, after his 3-year-old tried to use it.
Evan Osnos, a writer with The New Yorker magazine, shared an image on social media Saturday, showing the screen of his locked-out tablet.
“iPad is disabled,” it read. “Try again in 25,536,442 minutes.” Osons took to Twitter seeking advice. “Uh, this looks fake but, alas, it’s our iPad today after 3-year-old tried (repeatedly) to unlock. Ideas?” he wrote.
“Reboot your 3 y.o.,” joked a user. “I would just wait it out,” suggested one man. “Pour one out in memory of your iPad,” said another user.
Some on Twitter suggested there was nothing he could do, but others came forward with helpful links to tech blogs explaining how he might resolve the issue.
While the 48-year lockout seems extreme, it’s part of typical Apple product security features, says Tom Wolanczyk, head office production manager at Toronto-based Fixt Wireless Repair. Android devices don’t have such lengthy password lockouts, says Wolanczyk, but he’s seen it before on client Apple products.
The only answer, says Wolanczyk, is to reset your iPad or iPhone using iTunes. This may require a hard reset of the device after which you will lose data. According to Apple’s website, if you had backed up the device on iTunes, you can restore it. But if not, you’ll have to accept a clean slate.
Wife Wants Divorce After Learning Hubby Fathered 47 Kids As Sperm Donor
Lots of women and couples turn to sperm banks when they’re having fertility issues and since men can reproduce pretty much endlessly, some sperm donors have fathered multiple kids that way. But one woman who knew that her husband was a sperm donor recently discovered just how many kids he has fathered and she’s so shocked by the whole thing, she shared the story on Reddit.
Reddit user fedupwife1234 asked theAmITheA--hole subredditif she’s out of line for considering a divorce after finding out her hubby is the father of 47 children through being a sperm donor. She says she always knew he was donating, but she had no idea how often he was chosen. “It’s clearly my fault for not asking how many,” she admits. “I was … not expecting that many.”
So the wife says at the time, her husband tried to talk to her about being a sperm donor and she told him she didn’t want to know. She even says, “I can’t blame him for not telling me how many, I literally told him not to.” Hundreds of people have responded to her post and it seems most of them think she’s making too big a deal about the number and is in the wrong.
Some commenters says they don’t understand why she’s worried about it, others say if his 47 kids reach out at some point for their dad’s contact details, it would “be an inconvenience rather than a disaster.” Overall, most people say the wife is out of line to consider a divorce just because her husband of eight years helped others start a family. As one user pointed out, “He didn’t personally impregnate 47 women.”
