Ok Cupid, goose edition and larvae tacos: Wacky news of the week

Finally, I made it to Friday! It’s been a really long week. Then again, every week feels long to me these days. Here’s a brief wacky news of the week recap.

1. Don’t yuck my yum. Chef Jose Avila has decided to really mix it up and enhance the fusion dishes at his restaurant. Some people find this repulsive. I, for one, am reminded of my after-college days. Here’s a dish sample. Scorpion tamales made with chocolate and pineapple, red worm (chiniquile) tostadas, bone marrow with garlic-roasted grasshoppers (chapulines) and ant larvae (escamole) tacos. I say potato, you say potatoe. Or, something like that.

2. Here’s another for equality. Women in Berlin will soon be allowed to go topless at the city’s public swimming pools, like men, the Berlin state government noted.

3. Yah, fun but no calories. Ok. This is not cool in that it is an illness. But, is interesting. This past week, discussion re-emerged regarding Auto brewery syndrome. It’s sometimes called “drunkenness disease.” This rare condition makes you intoxicated — drunk — without drinking alcohol. To help you understand it, it’s good to know it is also known as gut fermentation syndrome and endogenous ethanol fermentation.

4. Workplace drama: It seems to be everywhere. Passengers on a recent SkyWest flight from Los Angeles to Houston, Texas, were delayed for over an hour after the flight attendants reportedly got into an argument and refused to work with each other. Does HR hand out flight vouchers?

5. Ok Cupid, goose edition. Iowa cemetery staff placed a Facebook ad to find a ‘life partner’ for a widowed domestic goose. Ah, I hope someone swipes right. Well, hopefully, there’s a goose out there who sends a message. Who doesn’t like a feel good story?
