It must be true... I read it in the tabloids
■ Millennials who are struggling to become fully functioning grown-ups can now attend an “adulting” school. Founded by a local therapist and a former public school teacher, the Adulting School in Portland, Maine, aims to teach essential life skills to 20- and 30-somethings who still rely heavily on their parents. Dozens of Millennials have paid $30 per class to hear tips on such grown-up topics as how to cook a meal, book a dental appointment, and show up at meetings on time. Erin Vogel, 25, said she attended because “my mom sent me the link.”
■ A British woman got a shock when she sliced into a red bell pepper and saw the screaming face of Donald Trump. Janet Ayers was preparing dinner with friends and chatting about the U.S. election when she made the surprise discovery. “It was as if the pepper was mirroring the conversation,” she said. The inside of the vegetable appeared to have scrunchedup eyes and a wide-open mouth—similar to Trump’s expression in his angrier moments. “We ate it for dinner,” Ayers said, “and suffered no ill effects.”
■ Margaret Rican was_puzzled when dozens of bulbs mysteriously began disappearing from the Christmas lights outside her home. Eager to identify the thief, the Seat tle resident staked out the crime scene and eventually spotted the culprit—a particularly industrious squirrel. She made a video of the critter chewing through wires and leaping off her deck with colored bulbs in its mouth. The tiny bandit stole 150 lights in 24 hours and buried them, presumably having mistaken the bulbs for brightly colored nuts. “He’s the hardestworking rodent we’ve ever seen,” said Rican.
