9 Of The Weirdest Things Named After Famous Celebrities.

As if celebrities didn’t have inflated egos already with their millions of dollars and motion pictures and stuff, turns out that when you become a superstar people are also compelled to name things after you!  Here are some of the weirdest things we could find that are named after celebrities. JEALOUS.

This spider is called “Calponia harrisonfordi” and is named after the Indiana Jones star which is cool, but I kinda wish it was a snake.

Lady GaGa has a whole genus of ferns named after her. The DNA sequence of these ferns is actually guanine, adenine, guanine, adenine (g-a-g-a). Same DNA but born this way!

Johnny Depp has a 500 million year old fossil named after him because its lobster claws resemble those of Edward Scissorhands.

In 2006 California passed ‘Tom Cruise Law’ which prohibits the sale of diagnostic ultrasounds to anyone except appropriately licensed clinicians. Apparently Tom Cruise had purchased an ultrasound and the California Assembly wanted to scorn him for Mission Impossible 2 being crappy.

Angelina Jolie was troubled by what she saw at a Bosnian refugee camp and started a donation drive to provide permanent housing for the people still displaced by the Bosnian War. Out of gratitude, the refugees have named the new apartment building “Villa Angelina”

Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons and Futurama, has a mole crab named Albunea groeningi after him. Could it also be a reference to everyone’s favorite Simpson’s character, Hans Moleman?

Conan O’brien once did a comedy bit hat impressed Lucasfilm so much that they retroactively renamed a character from the original Star Wars saga after him. Conan Antonio Motti is the imperial officer whom Vader famously chokes for his “lack of faith.”

The 116939 Jonstewart is a main-belt asteroid named after comedian and Daily Show host, Jon Stewart. That all sounds good, but I think we’ll all remember most fondly for his role in Death to Smoochy.

Some town in New Zealand has named a landfill pile as Mt. Cleese after the Monty Python vet, John Cleese cheerfully described the town as a “good place to commit suicide.”

Hey, at least Cleese has a lemur named after him as well.

That’s so crazy cause the only thing I have named after me is a couch I accidentally threw up on at my friends house.  I guess that’s something.  Give this a share on Facebook!

Here Are Insane Stories Of What Some People Have Done In The Name Of Love.

They say love is a many-splendored thing. There are an endless number of songs, poems and movies centered around the idea. Most of us will spend a lot of our time searching for that perfect someone to share our lives with, and there’s really nothing sweeter than when you find it.

And then there’s these stories. These people have a very different and disturbing definition of true love… Wow.

1.) Break Out Of Prison

34-year-old Craig Souza is no stranger to the inside of a prison cell, but in 2012 he decided he didn’t really care to rejoin the Santa Cruz County Jail and simply buzzed himself back into freedom. He explained that he was worried his wife would be upset to know he was going back to jail.

2.) Fake Your Death

As part of a morbidly elaborate proposal plan in 2012, a Russian man named Alexey Bykov arranged to meet with his hopeful-bride-to-be… only to have her discover his bloodied body among a scene of carnage. After she began breaking down in sadness, he popped up and popped the question. For some reason, she said yes.

3.) Light His Fire

In 2010, Sheldon Gonzalez fell asleep next to girlfriend Berlinda Dixon-Newbold like usual. Soon, however, he was woken up by the smell of smoke and the feeling of heat in his crotch-region… Because Berlinda, upset about not receiving enough attention, had set him on fire.

4.) Steal A Moon Rock

When aspiring astronaut Thad Roberts stole $21 million worth of moon rocks from NASA’s Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX, he explained it was all for love. The love of a biology intern at the facility, to be precise, who aided him in stealing and then attempting to sell the lunar artifacts. They were caught and sentenced to jail time. The best-selling novel Sex on the Moon is based on their experience.

5.) Hang Out With Their Corpse

In 1930, radiologist Carl Tanzler was working at the Marine Hospital in Key West, Florida where he met a young woman suffering from tuberculosis, Maria Elena Milagro “Helen” de Hoyos. Despite his best efforts, she succumbed to the disease and passed away in 1931… but Tanzler’s obsession was just beginning. In 1940, her body was discovered in Tanzler’s home. He had taken it in 1933 claiming her spirit had come to him saying he should.

6.) Rob A Waffle House

In 2013, Florida resident Marquis Baldwin just wanted to help his lady out with her financial difficulty (probation bills) so he did what any guy would do: grabbed his BB gun and robbed 3 Waffle House restaurants. He was arrested and charged with armed robbery and six counts of aggravated assault.

7.) Take (Fecal) Matters Into Your Own Hands

Following a spat with his girlfriend in 2011 where she apparently stole his phone, Staten Island aspiring rapper Rasheen “Illuminati” Harrison took his revenge by taking a number 2 in the elevator as he exited her apartment building. He then used that to, uh, decorate the walls which he then set on fire.

8.) Buy A Website

In 2007, Vimeo employee Patrick Moberg found the girl of his dreams while riding the 5 train in Manhattan. The only problem was that he didn’t actually talk to her before they went their separate ways. Instead of relying on the sketchy “missed connections” section of Craigslist, Patrick created his own entire website with one motive: finding the girl. Within 48 hours, the site was a success and he was put in contact with her. (Unfortunately, the relationship only lasted 2 months.)

9.) Special Tattoo Delivery

When London-native Torz Reynolds learned her boyfriend, Stuart “Chopper” May, was leaving her to move in with a new girlfriend with whom he had spent the last 6 months having an affair with, she sent him a very unusual house warming gift: she personally removed her own tattoo of his name, placed it in a jar and sealed it up nicely to send registered mail. Uh, ouch.

I have never been more okay with being single. Who needs enemies with love like this?

Worst Lawyer In The World Fakes Photos With Celebs In Publicity Attempt.

It’s not difficult to bump into a celebrity in Los Angeles, California. It’s the home of so many actors, musicians and otherwise famous faces that you can take a vacation there and see at least one of them while strolling along the streets.

But that’s not exactly the case for this L.A.-based lawyer. Svitlana Sangary apparently got tired of waiting around for a celebrity to need her services, or y’know just hang out, so she used Photoshop to at least make it seem like she had an A-list clientele. 

Images of Sangary with over 50 celebrities have been published on her official website. They’re all very small and feature varying levels of Photoshop skill.

L.A. courts have requested she remove the doctored photos and recommend a six-month suspension and three years of probation for the deceptive advertising.

Acting as her own counsel throughout the proceedings, she has yet to actually show up to court.

Instead she submitted written rebuttals to the charges, including an email from President Obama requesting a $3 donation to his campaign as proof of their acquaintance. Her writing also includes lengthy essays about Wikipedia, lemonade, her apparently blind mother in the Ukraine and the film Black Swan.

(H/T: Elite Daily.)

Unsurprisingly, the court was not convinced by her defense. She now has 30 days to appeal their ruling before her case it brought to the California Supreme Court.

These People Are Totally Overwhelmed In The Greatest Way Possible. Their Losing It Is Your Gain.

Have you ever been so overwhelmed by a moment that you completely lost control? Perhaps you applauded a little bit too hard at a ballgame or laughed a little bit too loud at the movies–or maybe your mind was actually blown by a random fact about James K. Polk (he was the 11th President of the United States – Whoa!). Well, if you haven’t, these folks certainly did enough losing their minds for all of us. Their loss is truly our gain. Check them out!

1. If the background is any indication, he should have no problem calming down.

2. He’s so shocked, even he doesn’t know if he’s happy or angry.

3. I hope she at least held on to the receipt.

4. Wait until this little guy experiences his first bridge.

5. And that’s how he decided to go paperless with his home business.

6. Maybe they shouldn’t get started on “Breaking Bad” right away.

7. Sometimes you just gotta smooch.

8. The soda is a metaphor, probably.

9. The “it” in “losing it” doesn’t always have to be your cool.

10. I don’t think he approves.

11. We’ve all been there.

12. Sometimes the nostalgia is just too much.

13. To the victor goes the strange dancing.

14. He’s so excited and he can indeed fight it.

15. That explains why most employers won’t let you bring a bat to work anymore.

(via BuzzFeed) I feel overwhelmed by how overwhelmed they are. It’s almost too much. Almost. Share this post using the button below
