Stupid News for 3/6/14

    A few days ago, Dove unleashed a New Jersey-based advertisement reminding notoriously proud Garden State residents that some people call Jersey the "Armpit of America." The billboards read,  "Dear New Jersey, when people call you 'The Armpit of America,' take it as a compliment. Sincerely, Dove."  Not everyone was amused. Though some Facebook users said they liked the joke, Dove caved to consumer pressure on Tuesday and to drop the billboards, writing in a response to several Facebook posts that the company would "not moving forward with publishing or displaying this ad."

     A fight broke out a Kansas Walmart in Wichita after a customer became frustrated with a self-checkout machine and began cursing at the device. He had difficulty completing his transaction and held up the line, much to the chagrin of another man in line. The man confronted the fuming customer and they engaged in a dispute that continued outside of the store. Once the altercation spilled outside, another man got involved and punched the cursing customer in the face. The punch knocked out one of his teeth.  Once police arrived on the scene, the only man left was the one who lost his tooth.

      A Texas woman got back at her husband for apparently cheating on her with another woman by taking out an ad in a local newspaper. Tameshia Brown’s congratulatory message starts off nice enough -- until she puts her signature on it. The ad read, "I would like to say congratulations to Shara Cormier and Patrick Brown. They are expecting a baby. Hope you both are really in love and I hope it works out. Always, Patrick’s wife, Timeshia Brown." The ad was posted in the Toledo Bend newspaper before it was posted online by a Reddit user.
