This 21-Year-Old Swedish Bartender Is Proof Jack Dawson Survived The Titanic

dicapriofeat

 

A younger version of Leonardo DiCaprio in Linköping, Sweden has surfaced to set the internet on fire.

Discovered by Swedish website Nyheter24.se, Konrad Annerud is a nightclub bartender who seriously needs to rethink his profession and consider becoming DiCaprio’s film double.

The resemblance between the 21-year-old Swede and the 40-year-old movie icon is borderline identical.

“I get to hear that I look like him quite often, especially since I work as a bartender in a nightclub. But it’s fun to be like him, he’s handsome,” Annerud said.

Annerud now has 60,000 followers on Instagram and continues to grow in fame as people constantly ask the DiCaprio doppelganger for pictures.

Annerud said that looking like DiCaprio is sometimes not such a good thing.

“When I was in Italy this summer, I almost felt like shaving my hair off. It was very chaotic; people were yelling ‘Leo’ and wanted to take photos with me all the time. It was one of the craziest things I’ve ever experienced.

Here’s Why This Single Cracker Is Worth Over $22,000

Expensive-Cracker

Usually, a single cracker goes for no more than a few cents. You can buy them in boxes at the dollar store. However, one specific cracker has been auctioned off for 15,000 pounds:  $22,965 USD.

What makes the Spillers & Bakers Pilot cracker so special was that it was saved from lifeboat of the famous TITANIC. Y’know, the British passenger liner that famously sank in 1912.

James Fenwick was a passenger on the Carpathia, the cruise liner that picked up Titanic survivors. He found the cracker on a life boat and tossed it in an envelope for safekeeping.

Fast forward more than a century later and the cracker, also known as a biscuit, was purchased by a Greek collector.

Seems like a pretty hefty sum to drop on a snack. It’s all in the name of history, right?

Your Oreo and the Titanic are Both 101 Years Old Today, Celebrate With This Cupcake

cupcake1

The Oreo cookie turns 101 years old today, and Crumbs Bake Shop is recognizing this for the monumental occasion it is by offering a cookies n’ cream cupcake, which features vanilla cream cheese and an entire Oreo on top. You know who would really enjoy a cupcake like that? Rose from the Titanic. Don’t see the connection? Just wait.

Oreos came out in 1912 — the same year that the RMS Titanic slammed face first into an iceberg. And remember Old Rose from the movie Titanic? Yeah, her character was 101 years old when she dropped the world’s ugliest trophy necklace into the ocean.

That’s right. Your cookie is the same age as Rose from the Titanic. Also the same age as this guy.

We’re pretty sure that Old Rose’s post-death fantasy of reuniting with the entire Titanic cast in the afterlife would’ve been vastly improved by one of Crumbs’ Oreo cupcakes, but since she can’t have them, we’ll just have to enjoy them for her.

Menu From Titanic Sells for World Record $100,000 at Auction

It’s basic knowledge that the Titanic was the largest ship ever built at the time of its ill-fated single voyage. As its name suggests, it was a big deal and its momentum gave rise to one of the highest grossing films of all time. Counting the recent 3D re-release, the buzz around the Titanic has lasted a century strong.

Now, a menu from the day the ship sank has broken a world record for an item of its type, selling for $100,000 at an auction in England. Classifying this under Cravings wasn’t an ironic gesture. The Titanic was a first-rate operation and this menu from first class sounds delicious, although an iceberg lettuce salad might have rounded out the offerings nicely.

The ‘Teatanic’ has a cleverly designed groove that allows the stamped metal miniature ship to casually suspend from the side of your mug- so now you can re-enact the infamous sinking over and over again (And let’s be honest, who doesn’t love to do that in their spare time?).  According to the website, these little babies are currently on back-order, but the bonus is the Teatanic is now on sale!

So if you’re looking for the perfect gift for that tea lovin’- freak-disaster enthusiast in you life, look no further — the Teatanic is docking in a mug near you.

My Heart Will Go On, if Paula Deen Allows It [HUMOR]

Paula Deen is one of the most notoriously unhealthy chef personalities in the game right now. With more of a passion for taste, family and food-related sexual innuendos, Paula is definitely a target for parody. In this particular hit, Paula Deen appears in the place of Rose Dawson of the cult sleeper hit (#joke) Titanic (1997).
