  • Mural of Former First Lady Michelle Obama Stirs Controversy
    Alex Kirry and Ethan Millard welcome you with a story from the suburbs of Chicago, from the neighborhood that Former First Lady Michelle Obama grew up in.  A stunning mural of Ms. Obama on a wall in the city depicting her as an Egyptian Goddess is amazing but the mural, by Chicago artist Chris Devins, has sparked intense debate -- and not for the usual political reasons. Shortly after Devins finished the mural last Friday, criticism began bubbling up online. People accused him of copying the image from Rhode Island art student Gelila Mesfin The #zenheadlines story turns a bit morbid when a "Fat Beaver" in Canada is stuck in an iron fence in Hamilton but is freed by a National Parks worker using soap to slip him through the bars.  The obese beaver was probably eaten in the wild though.

  • President Trump Has Diet Coke Button on Resolute Desk
    According to the Associated Press, the president has a button that summons a butler, and he often uses it to order a Coca-Cola. With the push of a red button placed on the Resolute Desk that Presidents have used for decades, a White House butler soon arrived with a Coke for the President.  Alex Kirry and Ethan Millard chat about how cool this is and also what things they would have a button to order up.   A San Diego Man is getting quite the pay it forward moment because of his honesty.  Because he returned a $676 dollar check to its rightful owner, she turned around and started a GoFundMe page to help the man and his family who are currently living in a motel to get back on their feet.  The site has raised more than $16,000 dollars so far.  It pays to be a good person.  
  • The Best, ‘Worst’ Tone-Deaf Ads We’ve Ever Seen
    (VIDEO) Following the continuous hilarity that Pepsi has brought us, Ethan and Alex decided to look into some of the worst tone-deaf ads that we could find. With how many people have to okay these marketing decisions, it’s hard to defend some of these companies. Nivea is bringing us ‘White is Purity’, Bud Light is removing “No” from your vocabulary, and Playstation is letting us know that, “White is Coming”.
  • United Airlines: If you get Bumped, You Get $10,000
    Alex Kirry and Ethan Millard talk about United Airlines' new move to try and restore their image from violent thug air carrier to generous purveyor of the friendly skies by rolling out heir new campaign to give $10,000 in credits to those who are bumped from their flights.  This move is a day late and way too many dollars offered for me as a consumer to feel like its really going to happen.   And a Zenheadlines story that President Trump probably won't be a big fan of.   President Trump launched a toll-free hotline in coordination with the opening of the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement office this week but people are trolling with calls of UFOs and Space Aliens invading.   The office is intended to “support victims of crimes committed by criminal aliens through access to inf
  • A Man's View: Women Asked To Breastfeed Elsewhere
    A Utah woman breastfeeding inside a Nordstrom Rack bathroom is asked by an employee to move to a changing room because another customer felt awkward.  Ethan Millard and Alex Kirry can only offer two men's opinions on the matter but to the customer who put that woman and frankly that store employee in an awkward position, grow up, the world doesn't revolve around you and babies have to eat.   Plus, a #zenheadlines story that is pretty dang cool.  Phoebe Kannisto and her six sons made their latest haircuts a true (and charitable) family affair after deciding to grow their hair out together and donate it. Kannisto’s oldest son, Andre, is 10 years old. She also has 8-year-old identical twin sons named Silas and Emerson; 5-year-old fraternal triplets named Herbie, Reed and Dexter; and a

  • Breaking Up a Riot with Pepsi
    (VIDEO) Ethan Millard and Alex Kirry are reunited to bring you a video directly from the mean streets of Berkley, California brought to you by YouTuber Vito Gesualdi who decided to try out Pepsi’s method of stopping riots. Unfortunately, Pepsi is 0-2 on being successful on bringing people together but at least we have funny videos to laugh at because of it.
  • Swipe Right! White Rhino Joins Tinder to Find Love
    Alex Kirry and Ethan Millard chat about a Nothern White Rhino, Sudan who is trying to keep his blood line alive by joining Tinder where a bunch of millennial Rhinos will likely only be on the lookout for a quick hookup and not a long-term mating situation.  Its sad really.  Its costing $9M dollars for Sudan's fertility treatments but he's worth every penny, ladies.    Zenheadlines bring us a great story about these two super fit yoga instructors who posted their engagement photo of him surprising her while shes stretching out on his legs and turned to find the ring right in front of her face.  So Cute.  The Hawaiian island of Oahu was the setting.  
  • Public Belching, Should It Be Ticketed?
    An Austrian man gets a ticket for belching loudly near some police officers.  The courts have dismissed the ticket but the Kebab-Onion-Fueled burp got the officers up in arms but the only thing that Jude Alex Kirry has to figure out is should it be illegal or was what the man did gross enough to merit getting busted?  An autistic man in Texas used to visit his favorite place, the Blockbuster Video by his house where he eats snacks and rents his favorite videos, Barney, Blues Clues and Spongebob.  When the Blockbuster closed, the community rallied with the parents to create an in-home blockbuster video store with the help of the old store and the family, they were delighted when the recreation was amazing.

  • Subway Rats Fight Over Bagel, Its Amazing
    Alex Kirry and Ethan Millard watch what has become a quite amazing video of a New York Subway pair of rats fighting over the tasty New York Bagel.  The #zenheadlines story of the day features Jonny Benjamin, 26, an ambassador for Rethink Mental Illness who set out to find the stranger, whose name he could not even remember, in hope rather than expectation. But after TV, radio and newspaper interviews and a #FindMike campaign on Facebook and Twitter – backed by Stephen Fry, Boy George and even the deputy prime minister – Neil Laybourn, 31, from Surrey came forward and revealed that he was "Mike".  Waterloo Bridge was the place that Neil was saved by the passerby.  London Marathon is where they ran an amazing event together.
