The Internet is SPECTACULAR at ruining our childhood memories, and this is no exception. The latest revelation? CAP'N CRUNCH isn't really a captain.
Someone noticed that the Cap'n only has THREE stripes on his sleeves, not four. Three stripes on the sleeve mean you're a COMMANDER in the U.S. Navy, not a captain. FOUR stripes mean you're a captain.
There's some speculation that he was modeled after a French naval captain which is called a capitaine de frégate who would only have three stripes. But why would Cap'n Crunch be French? Makes no sense, man.
We FINALLY have a good excuse for you to pull the trigger on that dream vacation you've always wanted to take to Manitoba, Canada. A Wendy's in Brandon, in southern Manitoba, is selling a burger you're REALLY going to want to try...
It's called the T-Rex and it features NINE Wendy's square hamburger patties and nine pieces of cheese. It costs about $21.50 in American dollars. There apparently aren't any plans to sell this at other Wendy's locations, so it's Manitoba or bust.

There's nothing worse than neighbors who let their dogs poop everywhere, and don't pick it up. And there's a town in central Spain called Brunete that came up with a hilarious way to deal with it.
A few months back, they started a campaign to get dog owners to stop leaving their poop on the lawns and sidewalks. First, they had a team of volunteers secretly wander the streets, looking for people who didn't pick up after their dogs.
When a volunteer saw someone leave poop behind, they'd walk up to the person and strike up a conversation. And during the conversation, they'd find out the dog's name and breed. They'd also pick up the poop. Afterward, they'd plug the dog's info into the city's pet database to figure out who owned the dog and where they lived. Then they'd take the dog poop the person left behind, put it in a box that said 'Lost Property,' and MAIL it to their house.
In one week, they mailed 147 packages of dog feces to owners who left it behind. Since then they say they've seen a 70% drop in the amount of dog poop on the streets.
If you're a guy and you've still got your hair, or a woman who doesn't understand why going bald is such a big deal to men . . . maybe these statistics will give you a clue. Check out these numbers from a new survey on baldness:
13% of bald men say when they first started feeling truly bald it affected their relationship.
4% take it even further and say they went TEMPORARILY INSANE when they lost their hair.
25% of bald men would give up a pay raise this year to get their hair back 17% would give up sex for a year 36% would give up their favorite football team, and 38% would give up alcohol for a year! Eek!
23% would, quote, "give up their mother-in-law" to get their hair back. We're not entirely sure what that means are these guys saying they'd MURDER their wife's mom to get their hair back?
And finally, 10% of bald men would give up a year of their life to get their hair back.
