Epic Food Fight

A large food fight took place at a Whataburger restaurant in Texas between high school students from rival schools.

The two schools had come from a football game, and one school was bragging about their team winning.

The restaurant had to shut down part of the dining room for about a half hour after students threw trays, fries and drinks at each other. One student recorded the fight and put it on Instagram.

Whataburger will not press charges but a school district spokesman said suspensions are likely once they find out the students who were involved.

Newsroom Brawl...  Cue Ron Burgondy!

Two Arkansas weathermen (Jeff Baskin of and Keith Monahan) were arrested along with several members of their news stations after a fight broke out between them.

During one's forecast, he said, "Unlike what other community college educated meteorologist will tell you, the rain should hold off until midday Sunday where we will have a 40% chance at showers and isolated thunderstorms."

The other weatherguy took a jab back during his own forecast saying, "Pay no attention to what some Cajun who has married all 5 of his cousins at some point says, pack your ponchos this Saturday because we are going to see a 50% chance of rain starting in the afternoon Saturday and ending well before Sunday."

Weatherman # 1 then returned to his desk to find a note from Weatherman # 2, which said, "Meet me by the flag pole out front" and police caught them outside fighting, along with some of their co-workers.

Both weathermen were charged with inciting a riot and are being held, but their boss has requested they be allowed to do tonight's weather reports live from adjacent cells.

10 Surprising Uses For Honey

1. Shine up your hair--Add 1 teaspoon honey to a quart of warm water, dilute, then soak your hair in the mixture post-shampoo (no, you don't need to rinse it, since it's already diluted). You can also use straight honey on the ends of your hair to calm frizzies.

2. Facewash--Just mix a small dollop of honey with a bit of warm water in the palm of your hand, then massage over face, working up and out.

3. Fight parasites--A drink made of equal parts honey, vinegar and water is a well-known cure for "backpacker's stomach."

4. Clean cuts--Honey is naturally antimicrobial (that's why it literally lasts forever; it has been found in tombs). So slather a bit on scrapes, minor cuts and basic burns, always using a clean implement, of course. Lightly cover the wound - basically you can use honey like a natural antibiotic cream. Scientists are actually using the bee product as a potential future source of antibacterial proteins.

5. Get rid of acne--Dab a bit of straight honey on your pimple, and let it sit for a half-hour, then gently rinse off. Repeat the next day; this works best for whiteheads.

6. In the bath--If you are out of bath salts and oils, add 3 tablespoons of honey and 2 tablespoons of olive oil to your bathwater; it will moisturize and condition skin, and smell lovely too.

7. Anxiety relief--Whether mixed in with a calming tea (try chamomile, fennel or lavender, or a mix thereof), on its own, or added to oatmeal at the start of the day, honey has been used in India to calm nervousness, especially the kind associated with the stomach.

8: Make lip balm--It's as simple as combining beeswax, olive oil, cocoa butter and honey.

9: Fight insomnia--If you don't have much trouble falling asleep, but tend to wake up in the middle of the night, it could be totally natural or it could be due to stress hormones being out of tune. A bit of salted honey can help reset these hormones and get you back to sleep. You only need a small amount, so use a teaspoon or egg spoon to keep yourself from overindulging.

10. Soothe a sore throat or cough--Honey has been shown to be as effective at calming coughs as over-the-counter cough medicines. Take it straight, or mix honey with a bit of coconut oil and lemon juice for extra benefits.
