KFC Twitter Only Follows the 5 Spice Girls and 6 Random Guys Named Herb https://www.artofit.org/2021/07/15/kfc-twitter-only-follows-the-5-spice-girls-and-6-random-guys-named-herb/ https://www.artofit.org/2021/07/15/kfc-twitter-only-follows-the-5-spice-girls-and-6-random-guys-named-herb/#respond Thu, 15 Jul 2021 10:27:46 +0000 https://www.artofit.org/?p=168240

 

In random Internet news, KFC’s official twitter account only follows 11 people: All 5 spice girls and 6 random guys named Herb. For those unfamiliar, Colonel Sander’s Original Recipe of “11 herbs and spices” is one of the most famous trade secrets in the food industry.

In fact, the recipe is not patented, because patents are published in detail and come with an expiration date, whereas trade secrets can remain the intellectual property of their holders in perpetuity.

Did you know a copy of the recipe, signed by Sanders, is held inside a safe inside a vault in KFC’s Louisville headquarters, along with eleven vials containing the herbs and spices? To maintain the secrecy of the recipe, half of it is produced by Griffith Laboratories before it is given to McCormick, who add the second half. [source]

Guy Shares Hilarious Lesson on Love from His Parents and It Goes Viral https://www.artofit.org/2021/07/15/guy-shares-hilarious-lesson-on-love-from-his-parents-and-it-goes-viral/ https://www.artofit.org/2021/07/15/guy-shares-hilarious-lesson-on-love-from-his-parents-and-it-goes-viral/#respond Thu, 15 Jul 2021 00:24:09 +0000 https://www.artofit.org/?p=167923

 

When Taylor Burkhalter came home for the holidays he shared a moment between his parents that has since gone viral on Twitter. In a tweet accompanied by several photos, Burkhalter professed:

“I’ve learned more about love from watching my dad reluctantly rearrange the living room so my mom can make snow angel boomerangs for her 29 Instagram followers than anything else in life”

 

The behind-the-scenes photos of the ‘making of a snow angel boomerang’ are priceless. Taylor’s parents are clearly awesome:

 

 

 

 

“We want to see the boomerang!” the Twitterverse cried. And of course, it was found and shared to the delight of all

 

 

 

Taylor Burkhalter, big shout out to you and your parents for making everyone’s day a little brighter. Happy holidays to all!

This Woman Can’t Stop Photoshopping Trump’s Face Onto the Queen’s (Top 50) https://www.artofit.org/2021/04/08/this-woman-cant-stop-photoshopping-trumps-face-onto-the-queens-top-50-2/ https://www.artofit.org/2021/04/08/this-woman-cant-stop-photoshopping-trumps-face-onto-the-queens-top-50-2/#respond Thu, 08 Apr 2021 15:26:44 +0000 https://www.artofit.org/?p=167264  

“It’s not about politics. It’s about the magic of Photoshop and making you laugh,” says New Jersey-based graphic designer Michal Krauthamer. The origin story is a simple one: She wanted to practice her photoshop skills so she tried photoshopping Donald Trump’s face onto Queen Elizabeth’s. She shared it with her friends who thought it was hilarious so she made more. Eventually she published an album on Facebook and it snowballed from there; Trump Queen was born.

The Internet Had a Field Day With Obama’s Official Portrait https://www.artofit.org/2021/04/08/the-internet-had-a-field-day-with-obamas-official-portrait-2/ https://www.artofit.org/2021/04/08/the-internet-had-a-field-day-with-obamas-official-portrait-2/#respond Thu, 08 Apr 2021 13:41:07 +0000 https://www.artofit.org/?p=167181  

Last week, former US President Barack Obama unveiled his official portrait for the National Portrait Gallery’s ‘America’s Presidents‘ collection.

Beginning with President George H. W. Bush, the National Portrait Gallery initiated a process by which the museum would commission a portrait of each president, and beginning with First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, this process expanded to include a commissioned portrait of the first spouse. All are privately funded and are owned by the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery.

For his official portrait, the 44th President of the United States selected artist Kehinde Wiley whose painting of the President measures just over 7 feet tall.

 

 

As per the Washington Post:

Wiley has included flowers in the background (another nod to historical portraiture) to reference elements of the president’s personal history, including jasmine for Hawaii, African blue lilies for his father’s Kenyan heritage, and chrysanthemums, which are the official flower of Chicago…
 
A swelling vein on the left side of the president’s face, and the intensity of his gaze, suggest the “doesn’t suffer fools gladly” impatience that occasionally flashed from him. [source]

 

Unsurprisingly, reaction to the painting online has been mixed. Equally unsurprising, are the comedic responses to the painting. If one thing’s for certain, the Internet is always ready with the retorts, Photoshops and memes in response to anything newsworthy. And with that, here are some of the funniest responses making rounds online.

Online marketplaces are an essential component of today’s Internet. From Craigslist and Kijiji, to eBay and more recently, Facebook; people can and do try to sell everything under the sun.

One common household item, the humble mirror, has through its defining trait, created some oddly humorous moments; capturing the people trying to sell it in a number of random situations.

A recent post on reddit, led to a viral thread on Twitter, which in turn sent me to a popular Instagram account.

So without further ado, enjoy these 21 pictures of people trying to take photos of mirrors they are selling.

Giant, Fiery Explosions Only It’s KFC Fried Chicken https://www.artofit.org/2021/04/08/giant-fiery-explosions-only-its-kfc-fried-chicken/ https://www.artofit.org/2021/04/08/giant-fiery-explosions-only-its-kfc-fried-chicken/#respond Thu, 08 Apr 2021 05:08:23 +0000 https://www.artofit.org/?p=166913

 

Will KFC’s Hot & Spicy wings give you something *cough* explosive? I’m not sure. I am sure that this was eye-catching enough to make me do a double take, and bizarre enough to warrant a post. This is the Internet, and to stand out, your explosions better be delicious. Credits below:

This Year’s “Dress” is Whether You Hear ‘Yanny’ or ‘Laurel’ https://www.artofit.org/2021/04/08/this-years-dress-is-whether-you-hear-yanny-or-laurel/ https://www.artofit.org/2021/04/08/this-years-dress-is-whether-you-hear-yanny-or-laurel/#respond Thu, 08 Apr 2021 01:52:16 +0000 https://www.artofit.org/?p=166810  

Another year, another controversial question DIVIDING THE INTERNET (caps lock emphasis, me). In the audio clip below, people are asked whether they hear ‘Yanny’ or ‘Laurel’.

I won’t spoil it, but.. ANYONE THAT SAYS THEY HEAR ‘YANNY’ IS A BIG STINKIN’ LIAR

 

 

What’s going on here? According to The Verge:

The secret is frequency. The acoustic information that makes us hear Yanny is higher frequency than the acoustic information that makes us hear Laurel. Some of the variation may be due to the audio system playing the sound.. But some of it is also the mechanics of your ears, and what you’re expecting to hear. Older adults tend to start losing their hearing at the higher frequency ranges.. It’s a phenomenon you can mimic on a computer.. if you remove all the low frequencies, you hear Yanny. If you remove the high frequencies, you hear Laurel

 

Additionally, the audio is also ‘noisy’ which causes your perception to be slightly ambiguous and your brain fills in what it thinks it should be. Have another listen sped up and slowed down, see if it changes anything.

 

 

Okay fine, I take it back. It sounds different at different speeds/frequencies. People hear differently. I was foolish. I take it all back. Sorry you can’t have your two minutes back but at least you can be topical at the water cooler today!

Reddit user zachirino’s wife not only ran her first 5K last weekend but she won in her age group! In an effort to preserve the momentous occasion the couple looked up her official race photo and she was literally flying!

 

 

The effort, the determination, the grit! It was all there—just waiting to be photoshopped. The first one was a layup:

 

 

And then his wife made a few suggestions and things really got going..

 

 

Congrats on running and winning your first 5K!
