Japanese Boy Insists On Ordering McDonald’s All By Himself & Wins The Internet’s Heart

NS-McD-Boy-Ordering

A young boy in Japan has become an instant celebrity after a photo of him carrying a McDonald’s meal he ordered all by himself went viral on Twitter.

The story behind the photo is that the boy wanted to order a McDonald’s meal without the help of his relatives. When the boy returns, you can see the look of accomplishment in his eyes — until you notice that he took the whole meal in the tray to-go instead of a to-go bag.

“Nephew – that’s a big mistake you made there,” the caption of the photo said. RocketNews24 translated the following comments from Twitter users.

“The look of satisfaction on his face is just too cute!”

“The tray is too much!”

“Imagine the looks he would’ve gotten from people on the way back to the car”

“I’m sorry – that’s not the way we do takeout!”

There’s no way you could scold a child for doing something that cute!”

“This is a great way to give out ‘free smiles’ – the company should use this as part of their ‘smile for zero yen’ campaign.”

The boy is actually the nephew of a professional baseball player in Japan who plays for the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham fighters. He regularly posts funny photos of him and his nephew on Twitter, according to RocketNews24

Kid Gets Trapped In The First Vending Machine He Ever Saw And It’s Hilarious

Ever wonder why children have this instinctual, magnetized, nearly obsessive-compulsive attraction for reaching up into vending machines? It’s like after looking upon the rows of sweet and savory paradise, encased in glass, waiting to be devoured, merely a fingertip away, a child becomes hypnotized.

But, more than likely at one time or another, we’ve all thought about sticking a hand into receiving end of a vending machine, just to see if our hand can grasp a sweet taste of pre-packaged snack victory.

If you’ve ever tried to reach and run on a vending machine, chances are, you’ve heard the warning that this dangerously risky maneuver could end horribly, citing the urban legend about the kid who got his arm stuck inside and they had to cut it off to free him.

Well, apparently, this 4-year-old Australian boy never heard nothin’ ’bout no warning and learned real quick that vending machines do not play.

It all started when 4-year-old Leo Shorthouse, from the rural northern region of Arnhem Land in Australia (which is very large but minimally populated), laid his eyes on the splendor of a vending machine in the lobby of his hotel, while vacationing with his family in Melbourne, Australia.

Vending-Machine-Stk-01

Leo had never seen a vending machine before, according to his father, Aaron Shorthouse. And sadly, an innocent grab at some cookies turned into a pretty nightmarish, several-hour ordeal, which required the assistance of power tools to remove little Leo’s arm from the machine.

Hold up.

The FIRST vending machine he’d EVER seen? So, not only did this kid prove that your arm can actually get stuck in a vending machine — but also — children actually might have an obsessive-compulsive attraction to reaching up into vending machines!

Talk about batting .1000!

To Leo’s credit, however, this vending machine was apparently equipped with an anti-theft device, which is a real thing now, because of the 2008 recession.

So, what did we learn? If anything, thanks to little Leo from Australia and the economic collapse of 2008, there’s actually a reason to keep your hand out of the vending machine, unless you’re literally ready to pay the price.

Lego Shot Glasses Worth Stubbing Your Foot For

lego1

There’s a reason they give Legos to children, and not drunken adults. Sure, both are highly irresponsible and likely to lose the tiny, colorful building blocks, or try to eat them, or use them in any fashion other than the recommended play. But at least children are resilient. If they hurt themselves stepping barefoot on a Lego, they’ll be able to bounce back. If a drunken adult does it, well, have you ever wondered what it might feel like to be hungover in your head and your foot?

Not like that’ll stop us from using these Lego shot glasses though. New from Think Geek, these Build-On Brick Shot Glasses are perfectly compatible with regular Lego pieces, allowing kidults everywhere to indulge in as much Lego-themed debauchery as they please. (Think: sticking little Lego men on the side of the glass or trying to build a whole city in under an hour.) Especially crafty drinkers might even attempt to build flat Lego slippers to guard against the inevitable plastic shrapnel that’ll wind up in their carpets the next morning. For everyone else, it was nice knowing your feet?
