Ickey Woods named Bengals’ ‘Ruler of the Jungle’ for playoff game

Elbert “Ickey” Woods has been named the Bengals’ “Ruler of the Jungle” for Saturday’s playoff game against the Raiders.

Woods will sit on a brand new Bengals jungle-style throne and serve as a gameday ruler, of sorts — leading the fans to a signature “Who Dey” chant right before kickoff.

Woods, who played his entire football career with the Bengals, is most known for his “Ickey Shuffle” touchdown dance he performed after every touchdown.

“I guess whatever I say goes, ya know? So I may throw a shuffle in there, get everyone riled up,” Woods said. “That’s what it’s about, just having fun, getting everybody involved and making the jungle a hard place to hear, a hard place to come into and win, and hopefully we’ll be able to do that.”

The kickoff is slated for 4:30 p.m. against the Las Vegas Raiders

A group of senior citizens unknowingly ate pot brownies

A group of seniors inadvertently ate a batch of cannabis brownies brought by a 73-year-old woman who didn’t know that her adult son had baked them with THC butter.

The incident happened last Tuesday in Tabor, a town with a population of 423 people, according to an affidavit obtained by The Smoking Gun.

Police responded to several calls of a “possible poisoning” and found that all the patients had been playing cards at the Tabor Community Center and were “under the influence.”

Cops arrested Michael Koranda, 43, after he reportedly told them he had cooked the illicit goods with half a pound of THC butter he bought in Colorado, where recreational cannabis is legal.

Koranda then went to bed and “his mother unknowingly took the brownies to the card game where several people ate them,” the affidavit read. He was charged with possession of a controlled drug or substance, which is punishable to 5 years in prison, according to the report.

Michael Koranda’s mother reportedly took the brownies he baked after he went to bed.

There was no word on any injuries.

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly Are Engaged and Sealed Union by Drinking ‘Each Other’s Blood’

“In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree,” Fox wrote in the caption of her post. “We asked for magic. We were oblivious to the pain we would face together in such a short, frenetic period of time. Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma.”

“Somehow a year and a half later, having walked through hell together, and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him,” she continued. “And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes.…and then we drank each other’s blood. 1.11.22

Campbell’s Turns Two of Its Most Beloved Soups Into Scented Candles

I’ve accepted that anything can be turned into a candle. Over the past couple years, we’ve covered scented candles that smell like a McDonald’s Quarter PounderIKEA meatballs, and Miller Lite’s version of a dive bar. But just because something can be turned into a candle, doesn’t necessarily mean it makes sense to turn it into a candle. (See the previous three examples, perhaps.)

But what about soup? With soup, the aroma and warmth are part of the experience — meaning they’re not that dissimilar from a candle. And so, this winter, the Campbell Soup Company is getting into the candle game.

Launching today, the soup giant has teamed up with the experience-oriented retail brand Camp to release candles in two signature Campbell’s scents: Chicken Noodle Soup and Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheese. The former is said to offer “notes of savory chicken, cloves and buttery crackers” while the latter is billed as featuring “roasted tomato, peppercorn and gooey grilled cheese.”

Design-wise, Campbell’s says the look of the candles was inspired by the brand’s recent stackable snowman cans (you even pull the top off like a soup can) which themselves are a tie-in to Campbell’s animated “Snowbuddy” television commercial. To further hammer that connection home, once melted down, the candle contains a small “Snowbuddy” snowman figure that customers can keep after the wax is gone.
