You Must Be This Tall To Ride This Ride

In what was quite possibly one of the best online April Fool’s jokes to date, the ever-popular dating/hook-up app Tinder announced recently that men would soon have to verify their height.

Having to verify that your profile pic is authentic and updated is nothing new. Dating websites like Zoosk have it as an option for people that are particularly untrusting. But apparently, requiring proof of height is where most men draw the line.

I get it. Caring about someone’s height it pretty superficial. Frankly, I don’t understand why women place such importance on it.

That being said, if one of these dating sites had a birthdate or weight verification engrained in their program, men would be investing stock on the exchange market.

Let’s face it – if men can have a “weight limit” it’s only fair that women can have a “height limit.” You can’t turn down a woman because she’s chubby, then cry foul when you are denied a date because you need a booster seat at dinner. The pendulum swings both ways, boys.

Here is the April Fool’s article that launched thousands of male backlash. The irony is as amusing as the actual article.



Service Dog Calls It Quits

Most pets are forbidden in malls, but service animals are welcome. But what happens if your dog loves to shop more than you do? For one famous golden retriever, living that mall life is too good to leave.

Ruvio, a Chicago service dog, is Instafamous with more than 251K followers. He proves that shopping is fun for dogs as much as humans. While out at a mall with his owner, Ruvio decides that he was team shop-until-you-drop and declared a strike when it was time to leave.

His owner encourages the golden retriever to leave with a leash pull, but Ruvio isn’t having it. He simply lays on the ground with a giant puptastic smile letting himself be lovingly dragged along the floor. You can see the funny video with the caption “When you’re not done partying yet šŸ¾šŸŽ‰ #dontwannaleave#petstore #naughtypup.” Ruvio’s K-9 video has garnered more than 450,000 views.
