Jared Fogle Got Beat Up in Prison Because Other Child Molesters Treated Him Like a Hero
This is a divided country. But one thing that united us all was that warm, fuzzy feeling we experienced at the news that Subway pedophile JARED FOGLE caught an ass-whoopin' in prison last year.
61-year-old Steve Nigg carried out the beating. He's serving a 15-year sentence in for being a felon in possession of firearms.
TMZ got a copy of a letter he sent to his family, in which he said he attacked Jared because he was ARROGANT, and the other deviants looked up to him.
Quote, "Jared is their hero. You would not believe how arrogant Jared was. He hired bodyguards and the other child molesters looked at him as if he was a god."
Nigg said that as a result of the beating, he lost the time off his sentence he had earned for good behavior. He also spent several months in the hole, and lost commissary and email. But he added, quote, "I have no regrets."
Costco Gives a Guy Free Pants After His Catch on Fire in a Store Because of an Exploding Phone
I'm so jealous of this guy, getting a free pair of Kirkland jeans from Costco. That's like my dream.
A guy was shopping at a Costco in Puyallup, Washington on Thursday when his LG cell phone EXPLODED in his pants . . . and they caught on fire. He managed to get the fire out before he suffered any serious burns, but his pants were destroyed.
So the manager was nice enough to give him a free pair of pants. There's no word on why his phone exploded.
Monopoly Announced the Game Pieces It's Kicking Out and Their Replacements
Back in January, Hasbro announced that there were going to be some big changes to Monopoly's game pieces. Some of the classics were going to get kicked out and replaced by new ones. And they put the whole thing to a vote.
Well the results are in. Three of the classic tokens are out, and three new ones are in.
Monopoly is officially getting rid of the thimble . . . the wheelbarrow . . . and the boot. And the new tokens replacing them are a T-rex . . . a rubber ducky . . . and a penguin.
That means the old school pieces that managed to get enough votes to survive are the Scottie dog . . . top hat . . . car . . . cat . . . and battleship. I use the term "old school" loosely with the cat, since it's only been around since 2013, when it replaced the iron.
There were dozens of options for new tokens, and the fact that people voted in three fairly basic animal options showed we're not QUITE as ready for Monopoly to jump into modern times as Hasbro seemed to be.
Some of the possible tokens that didn't get the votes included four different emoji faces . . . a hashtag sign . . . a thumbs-up . . . sunglasses . . . a Vespa scooter . . . a monster truck . . . a cell phone . . . a TV . . . and a NASCAR race car.
