PS From Todd: There are no losers here.


A pair of researchers at the Department of Psychology of the University of Warwick in the United Kingdom have come up with what they say are the funniest words in the English language. The team asked participants to rate 200 words on a scale of 1 (humorless) to a 5 (humorous) scale. Remember, though, this study was carried out in Britain.The Funniest Words (from less funny to most)

12. Twerp

11. A** (sorry...too PG-13)

10. Egghead

9. Bebop

8. Tinkle

7. Waddle

6. Twit

5. Nitwit

4. Hooter

3. Booby

2. T** (again...too PG-13)

1. Booty

Is  it possible to talk on a cell phone, eat and drink (non-alcoholic of  course) while driving and be safe? One guy figured out a way...


 Domino’s delivery  driver walks pizzas to customer’s house when his car breaks down and she  helps raise money to get his car fixed.

Ashley Schafer of Flint, Michigan was starting to get worried when the pizzas she  ordered an hour before still hadn’t been delivered. When she finally got  her Domino’s pies, they were delivered by Benjamin Houston, who walked them to her door after his car broke down en route.

Houston is deaf and didn’t have his  phone with him that night, so he had been knocking on doors to try to  get a message to his manager at Domino’s to explain that his car had  broken down, but people were reluctant to open the door to listen to  him. When he finally got the pizzas to Schafer, she was understanding  but she had no idea he had delivered them on foot until she looked out  the window and saw him walking down the street.

Schafer was so appreciative of Houston’s work ethic, she called to tell his manager and even started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money “to keep him on the road” or for “new shoes when he goes above and beyond.”

New app, Calm is a bedtime story reader to help adults go to sleep.

Plenty of people have a tough time falling asleep at night and  part of the problem is that we’re trying to drift off while holding our  phones. But instead of that harsh blue light from electronics that  disrupts our rest, now there’s a way for grown ups to unwind like we did  when we were kids - with a bedtime story.

Calm is an app that features bedtime stories written just for adults. The  tales are meant to help us transition from our hectic daily lives to the  relaxing night. Instead of stimulating our brains, like TV and  scrolling through social media do, Calm is here to “power down your  mind.”

The stories are like mini audio books, with soothing voices to lull  you to dreamland. And you can choose from fiction and nonfiction tales,  narrated by different readers. So if British actor Stephen Fry doesn’t do it for you, maybe NPR’s Laura Sydell is more soothing to you.

Most stories are about 20 minutes long, so you have time to relax  before falling asleep. But once we’re lying down and quiet, it’ll  probably only take about five minutes before we’re out.

Lyft partners with Disney to give rides in adorable Minnie Mouse themed vans.

Lyft is working with Walt Disney World to get visitors around in style. Their new transportation pilot will bring guests staying at the BoardWalk Resort and the Yacht and  Beach Club Resorts to any destination within the resorts in adorable  vehicles they’re calling “Minnie Vans.”

These vans are painted to look just like Minnie Mouse’s signature red  polka dot dress! These cuties can hold up to six passengers and they  even come with two car seats, so the little ones have a safe spot to  ride.

But the best part of the Minnie Vans is that they’re driven by cast  members wearing full-body costumes - without the giant heads, of course,  we want these folks to be able to see when they’re driving! So you  could be picked up by someone dressed as Goofy, Mickey Mouse, Belle, or  Cinderella. How happy would that make the kiddos?

"Playing a part in a family’s experience at the most magical place on earth is a dream come true," says John Zimmer, co-founder and President of Lyft.

The Minnie Van service is available from 6:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. and  you can book one using the Lyft app. No word on whether this program  will expand to other resorts, but we predict this will be a popular  service.
