JASON'S PICK - WINNER
Gimme Samoa Drinks!
A Washington state man was busted by cops after offering some Girl Scouts what he thought was a sweet deal -- trading some of his vodka for a couple of boxes of their cookies.
Jerry Swanson was already a bit blitzed when he arrived at a mall in the town of Ardmore and spotted the uniformed youngsters sitting at a table behind a display of Thin Mints and other treats. He told them he was a bit short on cash, but said he was willing to barter -- with some of the booze he'd been knocking back that afternoon.
The girls declined the swap and contacted security, who detained Swanson for cops. According to the arrest report, "he didn't even know what they were talking about. He was unsteady on his feet and basically had to place him in the police car and barely able to walk." (KXII)
Domino’s Pizza Launches Wedding Registry
A lot of couples will be getting engaged this month thanks to Valentine’s Day, which means future brides and grooms will soon be heading to stores to set up their registries so friends and family know what to buy them. But while most people will likely go to Target, Bed, Bath & Beyond or maybe Crate & Barrel to set up their registry, there’s now a new option that may peak their interest, especially if they’re pizza lovers.
Believe it or not, Domino’s Pizza has just rolled out their very own registry website, where couples can choose from a variety of gifts, which, as you probably can imagine, are all pizza-related. All of the options are wedding themed, including a “Cater the Bachelorette Party,” “An Excuse Not To Cook” and “The Wedding Night” package.
Just like any other registry, couples simply sign up for the ones they want, and once a guest purchases an option for them they’ll get a Domino's eGift card so they can cash it in whenever they want.
“We hear often from customers that Domino's was a part of their big day, from proposals to after-hours meals at their wedding," Jenny Fouracre, Domino's spokesperson, says. "We wanted to make it easier for people to ask for and receive something that they'll really use."

McDonald’s Cashier Gives Toys To Boy With Autism
Like a lot of kids with autism, when Bonnie Kandel’s son, Leif, gets fixated on something, it’s really tough for him to let it go. That was the case recently with a “Teen Titans” toy that his friend got in a McDonald’s Happy Meal. So Krandel took her little guy to the restaurant to get one of the toys.
Unfortunately, when they got to McDonald’s, they were told the coveted “Teen Titans” toy was unavailable because they ran out. And Krandel writes in a post on Facebook's Love What Matters page that “Leif was devastated” about not getting what he had his mind set on.
But after telling their cashier TQ about Leif and why those toys matter to him so much, that young woman pleaded with her manager to break the rules, just this once - and dismantle the display full of the desired toys for Leif. She finally convinced her boss to agree and the little boy was delighted! "Thank you, TQ,” this happy mom writes. “These simple Happy Meal toys mean so much! Your effort was an expression of love and made a difference."
