'Wizard Cops' Will Cuff You Up

(0) Comments | Posted November 24, 2015 | 4:41 PM

"Wizard Cops" rule over their supernatural beat, taking down all manner of magically powered baddies. And don't even think about "hexting" while flying.

But in this spell-casting send-up of the reality show "Cops," a fateful visit to a tough neighborhood may prove to be the partners' undoing.

Curse those evil-doers.

Quarrel Saves Couple From Paris Cafe Attack

(0) Comments | Posted November 15, 2015 | 11:24 AM

We often hear about twists of fate that save people from tragedy, like travelers missing a flight that later meets with disaster.

In the case of the terror attack on a French cafe Friday, it was a quarrel that spared a French couple from a fusillade of bullets, Le Huffington Post noted.

Quentin Bongard said in a video interview posted by iTELE that he and his girlfriend were dining on the sidewalk at La Belle Equipe restaurant. They argued and he left, he said. His girlfriend went inside to pay -- and that's when the terrorists opened fire on the sidewalk full of customers.

His girlfriend hid behind a couch inside until the shooting was over, he recalled.

"Luckily we fought, because if we hadn't, we would both be dead now," he said.

Gunmen killed 19 and critically wounded nine others at the cafe, The New York Times reported, as part of several assaults Friday that have left at least 129 people dead.

The Times posted a translated version of the interview above.

Ronda Rousey Eerily Predicted How She Would Lose

(12) Comments | Posted November 15, 2015 | 7:58 AM

If Ronda Rousey doesn't regain her UFC title one day, she might want to try soothsaying for a career.

Rousey, knocked out in stunning fashion Saturday by Holly Holm in a UFC championship bout, predicted how Holm would record the upset on "The Tonight Show" last month, For the Win pointed out.

Now Rousey was being strictly hypothetical with host Jimmy Fallon, but her words have an eerie echo following her "unthinkable" defeat in Melbourne, Australia. During the interview, she complimented Holm's "head-kick knockouts," then offered this about her opponent:

"She’s going to try to keep distance and keep far away from me and get me frustrated into a point where I’ll make a mistake and she can try to kick me in the head -- but it’s not gonna go like that.”

Turns out Holm did kick her in the head, flooring Rousey with a vicious left foot:

Sometimes having a crystal ball can really hurt.

Dude Buys 'Lemon Jeep,' Hilariously Complains In Music Video

(0) Comments | Posted November 12, 2015 | 4:02 PM

Teg Sethi of Australia bought a Jeep Grand Cherokee and says he got run over by breakdowns and poor service.

But he didn't take his lot lying down. He created a clever music video expressing his regret. And vroom! it's gone viral.

Ladies and gentlemen, we give you "I Made A Mistake I Bought A Lemon Jeep" (adapted from Redfoo's "New Thang")

Yeah, you sing that pain, Teg.

Incidentally, the song ends with "to be continued," so perhaps there's a sequel in the works, or that's just our car-bashing rapper's way of letting us know that his anti-lemon crusade is just revving up.

Yahoo reported that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Australia declined comment on Sethi, but did say in a statement: "FCA Australia takes our obligations to our customers seriously and their satisfaction is our number one priority. FCA Australia will continue to work on improving customer satisfaction and service."

Somehow we don't think Sethi is buying it.
