leonard marsh snapple cofounder dead died passed away drink legend thirsty

Leonard Marsh, the co-founder of Snapple, has passed away. He was 80 years old.

Leonard started Snapple in 1972 as 'Unadulterated Food Products,' and sold natural fruit juices to health food stores. He was a window washer before he became the CEO at the launch of the brand name in 1980.

They were super popular, super fast! Quaker Oats Co. bought Snapple for $1.7 billion in 1994, and Leonard stayed on for several years after as executive vice president for planning. Here's what his company has to say:

"We're saddened to learn of the passing of Mr. Marsh. He, along with his partners Arnold Greenberg and Hyman Golden, brought the best stuff on Earth to the masses. Today we tip our Snapple cap in his honor.”

He was the last of the three founders to pass away, and we hope he's enjoying an ice cold Snapple wherever he is!

Dick Trickle was a legend in the NASCAR community, and he was recently found dead a cemetery from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. While he DID leave a note, the contents have not made public — so there's no way of knowing why he did what he did.

NASCAR Legend Dick Trickle Has Committed Suicide

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadNASCAR

dick trickle nascar suicide dead rip sad driver legend

This is just awful news for the world, especially for the NASCAR community who knew him well.

Legendary driver Dick Trickle, who even used to smoke cigarettes while racing because he was so good, has passed away due to an apparent suicide. He DID leave a note at the scene of his death.

Sources say that Dick had been sick for a while and depressed. Authorities in North Carolina say he shot himself at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Lincoln County — and they even received a call before his death saying they would find his dead body there. He was found next to his pickup.

We have word that his body has been removed from the scene and taken to a nearby hospital.

Such a sad day for racing, and our hearts go out to his friends and family.

Vintage Tony Hawk Is Best Tony Hawk!

Filed under: Etc.Tony Hawk

tony hawk skateboarding vintage picture 1986 skateboarding legend

Tony Hawk is a well spoken, kind, and philanthropic dude — so we're wondering if he's always been like that, or if this pic (above) from 1986 shows a DIFFERENT Tony Hawk that we all know!

Tony posted the picture with this caption:

"Livin' large in '86"

We're willing to bet that he had some of those usual teenage annoyances, but we're sure he was a well-rounded kid back then too!

We mean, just look at that pic! Anyone with hair that blonde has to be a sweetheart! LOLz!

Keep sharin' pics like these, Tony! You've come a loooooong way!

Batman IS REAL! Identity Revealed!

Filed under: Silly!Legal MattersInspiration

A few days ago we told you guys about how the caped crusader was real, and that Batman had dropped a villain off at a police station in London. We also said that we knew his secret identity, which of course was Bruce Wayne! LOLz!

Turns out, though, we were wrong!

Also, he's not really a hero — he's a food delivery man pulling a prank on cops, named Stan Warby, who said:

“Obviously it was done as a joke."

It was all masterminded because his 27-year-old friend Danny, who had been wanted on burglary and fraud-related charges, asked him Stan to drive him to the police station. Instead of doing just that, though, he instilled a sense of inspiration and duty into millions of people around the globe.

Or, the crappy security camera footage went viral. Ha!

In the end though, how do we know that Bruce Wayne isn't just pretending to be Stan Warby, because we figured him out??

Batman IS REAL! Caped Crusader Drops Off Bad Guy At Local Police Station!

This is kind of an incredible story.

A mystery man dressed as Batman recently walked into a local London police station, dropped off a wanted man, and went on his way! Everyone is wondering who this heroic man is, who risked his own safety in the name of justice…

Well, the answer is obvious: it's Bruce Wayne, because apparently Batman is freakin' real! LOLz!

The villain he dropped off was a man wanted for burglary, who was then arrested and charged with handling stolen goods and a slew of other fraud-related crimes. But Batman ducked out without leaving his name, and no one has any idea who he could possibly be!

Wow!

Even though it doesn't look like Batman has trained in a while, he's still got it! Check out the video (above) for footage of the arrest! JUSTICE IS SERVED!

We don't know what we'd do if we found out he was actually driving a batmobile! Ha!

So sad!!

Porn star legend Ron Jeremy has just been hospitalized in CRITICAL CONDITION after a heart aneurysm!

According to his manager, Ron actually drove himself to Cedars-Sinai after having chest pains! This is when they found the aneurysm, which is not good news for anyone — especially at 59 years old.

The worst part is that his condition then worsened, he was put into ICU, and is now being prepped for surgery!

We hope he'll be okay!!
