News That Makes Us Feel Awkward

Yes He Can

Yes He Can - Couples

They say having a sense of humor can get you through anything, and Todd Krieg and his fiance Amanda Diesen are proving it with their pregnancy photo.

Todd was a professional motocrosser until 2014, when an accident left him paralyzed from the chest down. Amanda was his physical therapist, which is how they met and fell in love. Doctors told them the chances of conceiving were slim, but they defied the odds and were able to have a baby. So, in their photo announcing their conception, Todd also wanted to announce that “It still works.” (And Amanda looks like she was being a good sport about it.)

Their gender reveal photo is equally awesome, if a bit less risque.

Todd and Amanda are even entered in a contest to win their dream California wedding. You can vote for them here.

Congratulations on the new baby, Todd and Amanda, and on being an inspiration to us all.

Man’s Get-Rich-Quick Scheme Requires Guts, Patience

Man’s Get-Rich-Quick Scheme Requires Guts, Patience - News That Makes Us Feel Awkward

We all want to get ahead in life. Some of us are content to work hard and save our money. Others of us feel the pull to become the next Bill Gates, so we come up with a genius idea and then go on Shark Tank to get humiliated by Mark Cuban.

This guy falls into the latter category. We don’t know his name or where he’s from. All we know is, during a trip to Wal-Mart, he saw an opportunity. The letter “P” in the “Pharmacy” sign had come loose and was dangling precariously over the parking lot. If the letter were to fall and hit someone, Wal-Mart could be liable for a big-time injury settlement. So, our hero decided to position himself under the sign, and…wait for it to fall. When this photo was taken, he’d been waiting four hours. He might still be waiting there right now.

We’re not here to judge, but, we do have a couple notes…

-Maybe don’t stand directly under the letter? A head injury might make it difficult to enjoy your settlement.

-Couldn’t you throw a couple rocks up there to speed things along? Just make sure nobody sees you do it.

-Most of all, if you’re gonna pull off a scheme like this, maybe don’t take a picture of yourself that goes viral?

In any case, it’s nice to see the American entrepreneurial spirit is still strong.

Dad Hilariously Fails The Dress-Your-Baby-For-Daycare Test

Dad Hilariously Fails The Dress-Your-Baby-For-Daycare Test - Babies

Brooke Hawley-Hasso was in for a surprise when picking up her 7-month-old daughter Olivia from daycare–Olivia was wearing overalls with no shirt underneath. Apparently, her husband Jeremy was responsible for dressing Olivia that morning, and didn’t know a shirt was necessary.

Luckily, everyone had a sense of humor about the situation. “Another mom standing there was cracking up,” Brooke said. Brooke later shared her uncomfortable text exchange with her husband on Ellen DeGeneres’s Facebook page.

Don’t feel bad, Jeremy. We’ve all been there.

We All Need The D

We All Need The D - News That Makes Us Feel Awkward

“When Yukon Health and Human Services in Canada wanted to raise awareness about Vitamin D, they produced a series of ads. But the ads’ phrasing was unintentionally hilarious, using phrases like ‘How do you do the D’ and ‘Need a little help…with your daily D?’ Apparently no one at the agency knew what ‘The D’ also means.

The department has since realized their mistake and removed the ads from their website, but luckily the Internet has preserved them for the benefit of mankind.”
