    Forget #RoyalBaby, ‘a Horse Walks Into a McDonald’s’ is the Best News Out of the United Kingdom This Morning

    Burned out on Royal Baby but still want to keep track of the news coming out of the UK this morning? Us too. That's why we're bringing you the following extremely important story of a woman who was fined by police over the weekend for bringing her horse into a McDonald's location in Greater Manchester after employees wouldn't serve her from the drive through window. Once inside, the horse took its revenge for this act of discrimination by making the McDonald's dining experience worse in pretty much the only way possible -- taking a horse-sized dump on the floor.

    I’m a Ghost! Invisible Driver Fast Food Prank [Video]

    As if the people working the drive-through window of fast food places don't have it bad enough, they're often on the receiving end of a lot of dumb pranks. "Coning" was a weird one where people grabbed ice cream cones by the ice cream. "Fire in the Hole!" -- where jerks throw drinks at the employees -- was probably the worst. This one though... this one we like. A guy built a car seat costume and used to it make fast food workers think there's no one in the car. No one gets hurt. Nothing gets sticky. We just get a hilarious video and the new catchphrase "Instagram dat joint!"
