RTD Original Sickening Stupidest Products (or ideas) Ever

I Could Use Some Advice Here

I hate to break away from our usual goofy posts, but I have a question for anyone out there who might know the answer. So here’s my problem; I got this bill in the mail today demanding $8.08 for a collect call from someone in prison. But not only do I not know anyone in prison, I didn’t even have this phone line back in December when they say the call was actually placed.

I know it’s a small amount, but obviously I don’t want to pay a bill for something that I had nothing to do. I also don’t want this to go to collections and risk having it hurt my credit score. But, I’ve also looked this company up and found that they are incredibly shady, so I’m not sure if I should call them because it might require giving them enough personal information for them to try to scam me out of even more money.

What do you guys think is my best option here? I am leaning towards calling them, but I want to make sure I won’t be shooting myself in the foot by talking to them and verifying my name and address.

The 25 Weirdest Interview Questions

If you’ve ever been asked an off-the-wall interview question, then you probably have wondered just how strange these idiotic questions can get. Glass Door can help ease your mind about the stupidest interview you’ve ever answered with these 25 wacky inquiries, including:

An apple costs 20 cents, an orange costs 40 cents, and a grapefruit costs 60 cents, how much is a pear?

What would you do if you just inherit a pizzeria from your uncle?

I love reading things that remind me how awesome it is to be a professional blogger.


Decisions Decisions Contest!

3651560478_5f5979717dFew of you know this, but I have the sick, self-loathing drive to be a stand up comedian. As a result, I get annoyed when people try really hard to be funny and just fall flat…it’s double when the person is a woman because I am annoyed with how unfunny women tend to be.

Anyway, I was listening to the radio this morning and they had a contest where the person with the funniest reasons for their answers to two questions would win a prize. The contestant’s answers were miserable. I know I could do way better and I think you readers could as well.

So, the first person with answers I deem to be funnier than my own will receive a prize -be sure to leave your real email in the comments so I can contact you for your address and whatnot.

Here’s the questions:

What’s the best invention: a hot tub or an internal combustion engine? Same question only: the internet, condoms or birth control?

My answers: An engine is better because it’s a lot easier to clean sperm out of it. The internet’s better because my vibrator is completely useless with the other two.

Can you beat it?

Comic Con Interviews With Adult Swim & G4 Cartoonist

Hi all,

I wanted to let you know that at Comic Con I have interviews with the creators of the new Strong Bad videogame (I’ll also be demo-ing it).

I also will be interviewing Adam De La Pena, the creator and writer of Code Monkeys and Minoriteam.

If you have anything you’d like me to ask these people, let me know so I can add the questions to my notes. Thanks!

UPDATE: The interview with Adam of Code Monkeys is not going to happen at this Comic Con. Sorry to disappoint.
