What's sure to bring on some chuckles (if you're not too busy weeping into your tissue) is the sight of several unimpressed-looking penguins.

Pay for your McDonald’s meal with a hug

What can love buy you? A McDonald’s meal. Seriously.

The fast food chain will be trading in this "currency" from Feb 2 to Valentine's Day.

That means they'll accept a hug, a dance or a 'I love you' call to your mum in lieu of payment.

Too bad this 'Pay with Lovin' promotion applies only to outlets in the US.

Of course not everyone there will get to pay with love. (McDonald’s still has to make money, you know.)

Various outlets will have a fixed number of deals which they will give away at certain times of the day.

The company's spokesman said it expects about 1 million customers to benefit from this promotion deal, reported Huffington Post.

Stuffed: WWE legend Mick Foley ejected for cheating... at chicken wing-eating contest

Former WWE wrestler Mick Foley was ejected from a chicken wing-eating contest when he was caught redhanded for cheating.

Retired WWE superstar Mick Foley sullied the honourable reputation of a professional eating contest - and got himself ejected in the process

The reason? 

He tried to cheat - by hiding uneaten chicken wings in his waist pouch, reported the Washington Post.

That gave the impression he had consumed more wings that he actually did.

 

 

The 49-year-old WWE Hall of Famer (who made a name for himself as a super-nice guy) took part in the 2015 Wing Bowl in Philadelphia on Friday (Jan 30).

 But rather than competing honourably, he took the low road.

Luckily for the sanctity of the sport, hawk-eyed officials caught him red-handed.

He initially tried to protest his innocence but when his act was replayed on the big screen, there was nowhere he could hide.

He later admitted to the dastardly deed on his Twitter account.

 

 

To be fair, he had given warning that he might try to cheat his way to the top.

 

 

Shame on you Mick, shame on you.

For the record, Patrick Bertoletti of Chicago took home the top prize the honest way. He ate a record 444 wings in 26 minutes.

The 2014 champion Molly Schuyler of Nebraska shoved down 440.

United wreak revenge

Striker finds form to wipe memory of hammering

HAIR-RAISING: Radamel Falcao celebrates scoring Manchester United’s second goal against Leicester City at Old Trafford.

MANCHESTER UNITED 3

(Van Persie 27, Falcao 32, Morgan 44 og)

LEICESTER CITY 1

(Wasilewski 80)

Robin van Persie ended his dry spell with a spectacular finish that propelled Manchester United to a comfortable win over Leicester City.

Van Persie scored his first goal for over a month to put United ahead and Radamel Falcao got on the scoresheet before Wes Morgan’s own-goal sealed the win which moved Louis van Gaal’s men up to third in the Premier League.

Marcin Wasilewski scored in the second half, but Leicester were unable to pull off another great comeback as they did in the first meeting, when they won 5-3 in September.

Van Persie spoke candidly this week about how disappointed he was with his form this season. The Dutchman said his performances had not been up to scratch and conceded he did not know if he had done enough to earn a contract extension.

But yesterday he looked something like the Van Persie who scored 30 goals in his debut season at the club. The Dutchman watched Daley Blind’s chip pass over his left shoulder before expertly stabbing the ball past Mark Schwarzer with his right boot.

Replays showed the 31-year-old may have been slightly offside, but he did not care.

Falcao rounded off a move which Van Persie started five minutes later and the three points were in the bag at half-time after Morgan turned Wayne Rooney’s corner into his own net.

The win – and the fact that they scored three goals – will give confidence to Van Gaal’s team, who had scored only five goals in their previous six matches.

For the first 20 minutes, United looked just as flat as they did in their last home match, the 1-0 defeat to Southampton.

The tempo was slightly quicker, but Leicester goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer remained untested early on.

BACKWARDS

The home fans became annoyed at their team for not going on the attack against the bottom team in the division – too often they passed the ball sideways or backwards.

Nothing seemed to be going for the hosts, and Rooney’s attempted crossfield pass ended up in the East Stand.

Angel di Maria showed his class by chesting down a Leicester clearance, but he followed it up with a volley into the crowd too.

The home supporters needed a goal to lift their spirits and Van Persie delivered it in spectacular fashion just before the half-hour. Blind pinched the ball off Andrej Kramaric and chipped a clever ball over the Leicester back four towards Van Persie. The striker showed true class by watching the ball over his shoulder before stabbing past Schwarzer.

Five minutes later, United doubled their lead. Van Persie started the move, brushing his man off to find Di Maria. Schwarzer spilled the Argentinian’s shot and Falcao scrambled home his fourth goal of the season just before Ritchie Da Laet and Wasilewski could intercept.

United were now playing at their freeflowing brilliant best, and Falcao and Di Maria exchanged passes in a counterattack, but could not test Schwarzer.

With Leonardo Ulloa isolated up front, Leicester could offer little on the attack and two minutes before the break they found themselves 3-0 down.

Rooney’s corner skidded off the head of Blind and Morgan, who was caught out by the flick-on, accidentally diverted the ball into his own net.

Just after bringing Esteban Cambiasso off the bench at the break, the Foxes hit United on the counter, but Kramaric’s bicycle kick failed spectacularly.

United remained by far the superior team though, and Adnan Januzaj saw his swirling 25-yard shot dip just over Schwarzer’s bar.

Leicester finally pulled one back when Wasilewski headed in, but there was no time for another comeback.

Wow!
