JASON’S PICK

Worst Royal Baby Souvenir

Prince George isn't even a week old, but he's already responsible for a substantial boost to the British economy.

The royal nipper's birth is expected to bring $380 million into the U.K.'s economy, including $95 million in booze sales alone, according to the Atlantic.

Designer Lydia Leith is hoping that Prince George's loyal subjects tired of toasting the baby's birth might instead want to upchuck in her royal barf bags.

It's a bit of a tradition for her, having also designed barf bags for the royal wedding and Queen Elizabeth's diamond jubilee.


INTERN LINDSAY’S PICK

HOSPITAL HAPPY HOUR

There are only a few reasons to go to a hospital – you work there, you're sick or injured, you're having a baby, or your visiting someone. For the most part, a trip to the hospital isn't something people look forward to – but The North Hampshire Hospital in Basingstoke, England, wants to change all that.

They have applied for a liquor license to serve wine and beer between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. in a private wing of the hospital. A nurse will actually serve you a drink while you are recuperating in your hospital bed. Your visitors can join you as well. Being admitted into the hospital suddenly seems like a vacation – no work and bedside drink service! (TheFrisky)

Crew Demolishes the Wrong House

Fort Worth, Texas, city officials made a huge mistake that left David Underwood and his wife wondering where their house went.

Fort Worth, Texas, city officials made a huge mistake that left David Underwood and his wife wondering where their house went.

A city demolition crew was supposed to knock down a condemned home at 9708 Watercress Drive, but they took down 9716 Watercress Drive instead! Oops! A neighbor even tried to get in touch with city officials when they realized the mistake, but the house was leveled before anyone took action. 

Fortunately, the house was almost empty – it had belonged to David's grandmother and they were in the process of fixing it up before moving in. Sounds like the Underwoods will be able to build their dream home now ... paid for by the city of Fort Worth! (TheStir)
