JASON'S PICK - WINNER

Mom let a snake bite her baby to "teach it a lesson"

We may have found her, the World's Worst Mother. An unidentified woman in Florida let a rat snake bite her baby multiple times to teach the child a lesson. "It had bitten me and my son and didn't leave a mark, several times," she explains. "So, I thought it was a good opportunity to introduce her without actually getting hurt." According to this nature expert, her daughter was not hurt because the snake has teeth “too small to actually puncture the skin." Oh the best part? The woman uploaded a video of the incident on Facebook. This shining star of mom is under investigation. Source: Action Jax News

Officers Support Wannabe Cop’s Lemonade Stand

Little Hannah Pasley really wants to be a police officer one day. But for now, the three-year-old girl just wanted her own police uniform. So she set up a lemonade stand in Kansas City, Missouri to raise money to get one.

After the first day, she had earned enough money, so she bought a dress-up police coat and hat and returned to hard work at the lemonade stand. But when customers thinned out, her aunt, Ashley Rooks, reached out on Facebook to generate business.

Soon the street was flooded with squad cars and more than 50 officers came by to support the wannabe cop. Officers gave Hannah a Kansas City Police Department patch for her coat and a junior deputy badge, too. Not bad for a day’s work!

FRECKLES' PICK 

Do Millennials Really Waste All Their Money On Avocados?

Last month, an Australian property developer claimed Millennials will never own their own home because they spend too much money brunching on avocado toast. But do Millennials really love avocados that much? Well, according to a new survey, the answer is no. In fact, the poll, conducted by the Huffington Post and YouGov, finds that Millennials aren’t anymore obsessed with avocados than other age groups.

The survey finds that 57% of those under the age of 30 say they like avocados, but 66% of those over 30 like them too. In addition, while 28% of Millennials describe themselves as loving the fruit (yes it's a fruit), 35% of older adults would use the same word to describe their feelings about them.

As for wasting their money on avocado toast, that doesn’t hold much water either. Only 6% of Millennials say they've spent money on store-bought avocado toast, while 5% of older adults have done the same. Meanwhile, 14% say they’ve saved money by making it themselves at home, with 8% of those over 30 doing that as well.

In other avocado news…In case you missed it, Trader Joe’s is making it easier for single folks to enjoy avocados without the waste. They are now selling bags of “Teeny Tiny” avocados that are the size of a lime and perfect for just one person, although they come six in a bag. Now single folks can enjoy a little avocado without having another half turning brown in the fridge.
