Early in the year of 2014, the country actually ran out of velveeta cheese! RAN. OUT. OF. CHEESE! How is this even possible? The highly processed cheese food company simply didn’t have enough in stock. They had no real explanation and left cheese lovers around the states to scrounge for the orange stuff until their stock was replenished.

Dumb Starbucks LA

In February, Dumb Starbucks opened in Los Angeles, California and it was open for a whole weekend. They gave out free coffee, but the wait was crazy. People actually stood in line for hours on end to get a drink from Dumb Starbucks. This hilarious brilliance was an epic stunt put on by comedian Nathan Fielder for his new show. Overnight, this parody coffee house became a top news story known around the world. Kudos, Nathan.
