We love this story, we bet Miley Cyrus would love this story, and we guarantee YOU’RE gonna love it too!

Seth and Kelly Kelley (whose name proves you can’t help whom you fall in love with) opened up a cafe in Fort Collins, Colorado last May. Their business, Redtail Coffee, does more than make a mean cup of joe though. This coffee shop is being staffed by homeless individuals!

After a low-incoming housing project named Red Tail Ponds received some pushback from locals, Seth and Kelly wanted to come up with a way to show citizens of Fort Collins that they they had nothing to fear in helping their fellow man!

Would You Pay For Tap Water??

Probably not, right??

Well get this — there's a place in NYC called Molecule, and is known as The Water Cafe.

They serve tap water, which NYC is rated as having some of the nation's best, at $2.50 for a 16 ounce cup of it.

So what makes it worth that money if you could go into any apartment and get it?

They filter is down through a seven-stage filter system, and then you can add optional vitamin supplements. Ta-daaaa.

For an additional fee you can get a variety of vitamin blends, such as an immune blend and a hair and nail blend.

They even plan to start a delivery service.

Honestly, this sounds like the Pet Rock. There are rocks all around you, yet only one you BUY can be your pet.

What a waste of money, and what a lucrative business for people who exploit people not smart enough to see it.

Cray!

A Funeral Home Is Getting A Starbucks? Why?

Starbucks Funeral

Not like, delivered to a funeral or anything, but literally they're putting a Starbucks franchise inside of a funeral home!

A functioning funeral home!

The Robinson Funeral home in S.C. is getting the coffee shop next month, as Starbucks confirm that they'll be in a special wing of the building.

They claim it's just one more service for the grief-stricken.

Here's what the home's owner says:

"If this provides them a little escape, gives them a break from the stress they are going through, that's what its all about — to make them feel a little better."

"While we make lots of money from their grief," he probably wanted to follow up with.

Interestingly enough, the cafe will serve the public as well as mourners.

Weird. We wonder if it'll be a hit!

German McDonald's Unveils Bubble Tea

In Germany, McDonald's McCafe locations are adding a new menu item — Bubble tea!

Bubble tea is a Taiwanese iced tea filled with chewy spheres of tapioca.

It's been slowly getting more popular but this is really the first major debut for this tea.

They are promoting the drink with a Chinese spokesman, Chan McTi.

Check out the (possibly racist) video (above) of the Bubble tea ad!

Colin Farrell Drinks Green Juice

Colin Farrel green juice

Irish heartthrob Colin Farrell was spotted in El Lay on Sunday afternoon carrying what we can only assume were two healthy drinks.

Or Hi-C Ecto-Cooler from the 1990's! Ha!

The actor casually checked his cell phone while palming two cups of a green juice he bought at a nearby cafe.

We're happy to see Colin's hot bod is reflected by his healthy dietary choices!
