ROUND ONE

BONER CANDIDATE #1: EAT AND ENJOY A DELICIOUS CORONAVIRUS

Some Easter eggs are better off left undiscovered. A great chef is always pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the food realm but one chef has come up with a viral concoction that may make chocolate lovers think twice before indulging in the sweet treat. French pastry chef and chocolatier Jean-François Pré recently showed off his newest creation, chocolate Easter eggs modeled after the novel coronavirus, according to Le Telegramme. The chocolates can be found at Pré’s shop in Landivisiau, ironically situated on Rue Louis Pasteur, a street named after the famed French microbiologist.   Read More

BONER CANDIDATE #2: YOUR MONEY SMELLS LIKE WEED

A Louisiana woman was arrested on drug charges after police determined the $5,000 cash she used to post an inmate’s bail had a “strong odor of marijuana.” Authorities began investigating Stormy Lynn Parfait, 33, on Friday, shortly after she showed up at the Ashland jail to pay the bond fee for an inmate being held there on drug charges, the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office said in a statement obtained by news outlets. After catching a whiff of the cash, a detective searched her car while she was still at the jail and found nearly $40,000 more inside, along with about 100 Klonopin pills and a food stamp card that wasn’t registered to Parfait, according to the sheriff’s statement. Investigators found hundreds of additional pills and cash as well as marijuana, cocaine and paraphernalia, during a search of Parfait’s home later, news outlets reported. Four unattended children there were turned over to a relative.   Read More

BONER CANDIDATE #3: NEVADA VANDALISM SPREE

Driving to an out-of-town wedding can come with all sorts of inconveniences. For two Nevada men, those include federal charges stemming from an alleged vandalism spree while documenting their road trip antics on Instagram. Daniel Plata and Jonathan Pavon, both 25, are accused of damaging government property, including an archaeological site, during a vandalism spree that took them to remote, and culturally significant, sites throughout rural Nevada. According to authorities, the two Elko residents vandalized buildings and rock formations at several locations on Sept. 19, 2019, while en route to a wedding. An eyewitness at White River Narrows, an important cultural site in the Basin and Range National Monument, reported seeing the men painting a rock formation and alerted Nevada Highway Patrol, according to documents. Troopers reported finding more than 100 cans of spray paint and other painting equipment in the trunk of their car. In addition to the vandalism at White River Narrows, they are accused of vandalizing property near the Schelbourne rest stop in White Pine County and in Lund and McGill.   Read More

ROUND TWO

BONER CANDIDATE #1: JUST GET THOSE VIRUS-RIDDEN CREATURES OUT OF THE COUNTRY

The body representing US immigration judges has recommended that coronavirus advice posters from the Centres for Disease Control be posted in court buildings – only to be ordered by a government office to take them down. The incident comes just a week after an immigration judge retired while claiming the Trump administration was turning the Immigration Courts into a “politburo rubber stamp”, and the government’s immigration policies have been accused of potentially hastening the spread of coronavirus by scaring immigrants into dropping their health insurance. The National Association of Immigration Judges (NAIJ) recommended to judges that they hang warning posters – in both English and Spanish – in public areas of their courts as part of a list of measures to combat the spread of the virus. However, only hours after it tweeted out its official advice, it said the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), which oversees the immigration courts, had ordered the posters to be taken down.   Read More

BONER CANDIDATE #2: CORONAVIRUS CHAOS

Dramatic video captured crew members aboard a Thai Airways plane tackling a woman who went on a rampage and deliberately coughed on a flight attendant because she was upset over a delay during coronavirus checks, according to a report. The Chinese woman became irate that the plane was being held up for up to 10 hours after landing at the Shanghai Pudong Airport on Friday, according to Newsflare. Fellow passengers on the flight from Bangkok said that after several hours cooped up inside the plane, the woman demanded to be let out. But when told she’d have to wait, she began flailing her arms and coughed on a crew member, prompting colleagues to tackle her. One male crew member put her in a headlock and yelled to the others: “Come here! Help me put her down!” He then calls for handcuffs, but the six crew members managed to subdue her without restraining her hands.   Read More

BONER CANDIDATE #3: OWNED BY A BLACK WOMAN? NO, THANK YOU.

A black female-owned feminine hygiene company was bombarded with negative reviews and online abuse after it was featured in a Target commercial, but its founder says the experience has “turned out to be a really beautiful thing.” The ad showcases The Honey Pot Company and has been running since early February, but it got thousands of one- and two-star reviews over the weekend from people complaining it was racist. In the commercial, founder and CEO Beatrice Dixon says, “The reason why it’s so important for The Honey Pot to do well is so the next black girl that comes up with a great idea — she can have a better opportunity.” The Honey Pot Company has been selling its plant-based wipes, pads, cleansers and other products in Target stores since 2017, Dixon told CNN. The commercial was part of Target’s “Founders We Believe In” campaign. A spokesman for the review site Trustpilot told CNN it got almost 18,000 reviews between Sunday night and Monday morning. Many of the posts were blocked by artificial intelligence filters because they contained hate speech, but staff had to jump in to remove offensive comments that slipped through.   Read More
