See what was brewing with Jen today! Every day she shares 3 recent weird and interesting news stories. Today she had one about Taylor Swift overshadowing Thursday Night Football, a new gin flavored with pickles, and a man who set a new world record for having the largest “eyeball pop” of all time. Here are her stories from today.
Taylor Swift is Overshadowing Thursday Night Football
Thursday Night Football is not off to the best of starts on Amazon Prime. The games have not been very good yet. But tonight’s game has a draw for something other than the game. It may be the Saints and the Cardinals playing, which may not be a good game. But a lot of people who don’t care about the quality of the game will be tuning into it tonight. Why? Well during the game will be the first time anyone can get a glimpse at the 10th studio album from Taylor Swift. A preview for “Midnights” will play in the 3rd quarter and the album will drop at midnight after the game. So at least some people will be able to enjoy watching the game because the rest of us sure haven’t enjoyed this Thursday Night Games.
New French Gin Flavored With Tiny Pickles
If you like pickles and gin, then soon there will be a drink that you will probably love. Because there is now a gin, flavored with tiny pickles. It is called Citadelle Gin Vive le Cornichon. It is stated to have “vinegary and briny flavors with a touch of mustard and pearl onions on the finish.” The gin is only available for a limited time, but if it is popular, it has a chance to join the company’s regular lineup.
Man Sets World Record For Largest Eyeball Pop
Right now you may be asking what an eyeball pop is. Well, you will understand what it means as soon as you see the image in the article below. Sidney de Carvalho Mesquita has the unique ability to bulge his eyes out of his head. And he can bulge them out 0.71 inches out of his eyelids. The prior record was .47 inches. It has even earned him the nickname Uncle Fester because when he does it he looks eerily like the Addams Family character. His family used to think there was something wrong with him when he would do it as a kid. But now the weird talent has earned him a place in the record books.
