Season seven of Game of Thrones starts this weekend. To prepare yourself for the heartache and dread that will inevitably come from that, here’s a look at the fun things from the week.
1. Pitbull and Jeb Bush are looking to buy baseball team together
The unexpected team of Jeb Bush (yes, Jeb!), Mitt Romney’s son Tagg, Pitbull and a few others are looking to buy the Miami Marlins, according to Mashable.
The singer confirmed his involvement on Facebook, and apparently he used to be one of the team’s hype men before making it big. I’m rooting for you, Mr. Worldwide and Jeb!
2. A 76-year-old woman takes wild way home
After leaving Walmart, a 76-year-old Michigan woman decided to ride her mobility scooter down the side of the interstate.
“According to MSP Sgt. Pete McNamara of the West Branch Post, the woman had just finished shopping at Walmart near Hamburger Hill off Exit 212,” The Bay City Times reports. “Instead of taking a safer, legal route home, the woman decided to take the expressway.”
McNamara said it was the first call of its kind.
3. Golden retriever is cleaning up pollution from China’s rivers
One pet owner taught his dog some new tricks, and he’s helping clean up the planet. The golden retriever learned to fetch trash from the polluted rivers in China and collects between 20 and 30 bottles ever day, according to Mental Floss.
4. Ramen-flavored Pringles are apparently going to be a thing
Coming to shelves by late July, Pringles will be introducing Top Ramen Chicken-flavored Pringles, according to WKBW Buffalo. The new concoction will be available exclusively at none other than Dollar General.
“Top Ramen Chicken is the latest experimental flavor from Pringles,” WKBW said. “In recent years, the curved chip purveyor has trotted out flavors like hot dog, ketchup and pumpkin pie spice.”
5. Mini food pantry is helping those in need
Roman Espinoza built a mini food pantry in his front yard to help those in the community who may be in need of food, BuzzFeed reports. He calls it a “blessing box,” and he stocks it with nonperishable food items. The community fills in the rest.
"The box is for the community and sustained by the community," he told BuzzFeed. "It's open all day, every day. Come and take whatever you want and how much you need."
However, Espinoza’s blessing box isn’t the only one. Here are a few more:
