15 Inappropriate News and Magazine Layout Fails

It doesn't get much better than a sweet headline fail. We're happy when someone screws up, but when someone makes an inappropriate design fail in a newspaper or magazine, it just gives it that extra feeling of stupid that we get to savor like a warm bubble bath. For more news related stuff, here are some hot and wild headlines from the land of Florida Man.

Magazine and newspaper layout fails that make the content look inappropriate, sinister and filthy.

Did you know there were slinky tricks? Neither did we. Apparently this guy is pretty good at them. I mean, if it's your job to stand at a booth that sells slinkies all day, you probably get good at slinkies. The camera can hardly even catch this skill, my god.

Guy Gets Hired at Store, Never Told to do Anything, Stays On for Months

This is surreal and the fact that this guy did what he did for this long before just walking away has sort of an air of triumph to it. First jobs can be really confusing, so when you're a dumb teenager who has no idea how jobs actually work, and are then given zero direction from an awful manager, you can get down some weird rabbit holes.

Guy tells story of how when he was a teenager he was hired at a retail store. No one told him to do anything so he occupied his time, then got bored and left.

Over 100 Seals Born In What Was Once Declared "Biologically Dead" River Thames

An incredible 138 seal pups were recorded in the pup-count in 2018! River Thames, a river in London, was declared "biologically dead" 60 years ago and is now clear evidence of a harbor seal breeding ground! Thea Cox, Conservation Biologist, told ZSL, "We were thrilled to count 138 pups born in a single season. The seals would not be able to pup here at all without a reliable food source, so this demonstrates that the Thames ecosystem is thriving and shows just how far we have come since the river was declared biologically dead in the 1950's." 

Anna Cucknell, Project Manager of the ZSL's Thames conservation added, "The restored 'Mother Thames' - as we call her - is an essential nursery habitat and home to many animals including more than 100 species of fish, including two species of shark, short-snouted seahorses and the Critically Endangered European eel. 

--

Incredibly, harbour seal pups can swim within hours of birth which means they are well adapted to grow up in tidal estuaries, like the Thames. By the time the tide comes in they can swim away on it. Grey seals, on the other hand, take longer to be comfortable in the water, so breed elsewhere and come to the Thames later to feed." 

The seal numbers in Thames are rising and Thames has now become one of London's most important wildlife habitats!

Woman Takes In 97 Stray Dogs To Protect Them From Hurricane

Chella Phillips, a resident of the Bahamas, manager of a dog refuge, and self-advertised "crazy dog lady" has taken in nearly a hundred stray dogs in order to protect them from the looming Hurricane Dorian. It's staggering seeing so many dogs in one place, and it's obvious the situation is a complex one, but with the alternative being leaving the dogs out in the storm to fend for themselves, this is a pretty impressive undertaking. In the lighter world of taking in stray animals, we've got a craigslist fail here of a sorely mistaken animal lover who thinks they've adopted a stray cat.

Client Refuses to Pay Web Designer, So He Edits The Guy's Site to Advertise His Competitors

I guess if you want to not pay someone for their work, it's a pretty bad idea to start off your plan by handing over the keys to your site. Karma hit hard here. It's generally a better policy not to lie and steal, especially from people who have a plan to strike back. Kinda like the time this guy got stiffed so he grouted a bathroom with sugar.

It amazes and scares us whenever we see a video of someone this young crushing it on the drums. Maren Alford is a young musician who already has more musical skill than most of us can hope to have. So here's her cover off the recent Slipknot album. So anyway, if you wanted to feel bad about your own life prospects, then check this out.

Kinda reminds us of how we felt when we saw this overqualified drummer who's clearly at the wrong gig.

Musician Tells Story of a Fan Who Rode a Stolen Horse To A Party with Photo Evidence

Not sure what the takeaway here is, but this is some straight up cowboy shit. I guess for starters, don't steal horses. Honestly, if you don't know what you're doing, don't even get close to horses. And if the cops stop you riding a horse that's not yours while you're under the influence, we don't really even know what could happen to you. Can they tell if it's a hot horse? Can you get a horse DUI? We just know cops can enforce some real stupid laws if you're being a real asshole.
