Filed under: Sad SadFoodFast FoodCancer

Man behind the Doritos Locos Tacos movement dies without seeing a dime for his idea!

Todd Mills was a 41-year-old father of two who had the amazing idea to combine Doritos and Taco Bell tacos.

After a funny Facebook campaign to create the product turned somewhat serious, TB took the idea and ran with it!!

Luckily, Mills was invited to go to Taco Bell headquarters in California where he was one of the first to taste the amazing product, but sadly, he was hit with cancer, and hit hard. He was forced to stop work and had two brain surgeries and a lung surgery.

When his friends and family set up a donations page for him, Taco Bell donated $1,000 for his medical bills.

Ugh, this is just so sad.

This is such a horrible reminder of the dangers of head trauma in youth sports, and sports in general.

According to the source, he was injured in

Filed under: Silly!InspirationFor Reals EstateAlcohol

beer can house houston landmark nonprofit open public

If you couldn't tell by us calling it a Beer Can House, this house (above and below) is made out of beer cans!

LOLz!

John Milkovisch (who has a name that's waaaay too close to John Malkovich for us NOT to picture him as the actual owner) of Houston, Texas, stored every can of beer he drank in his attic — for 20 years. He had no idea what he was going to do with them, and they probably smelled awful, but little did he know he was going to become a significant little piece of a such a big city!

brad lesley little big league baseball died passed away kidney

At 54 years old, Brad Lesley had already enjoyed a few years of MLB play and being a part of a bunch of 90s sports movies — but that doesn't make his passing any less sad. 54 is waaaay too young!

His death has stemmed from kidney issues, and according to his ex-wife, he had been living in a nursing home for the past seven months. He had been getting dialysis, but succumbed to kidney failure in the end.

Such a bummer. Who could forget his goatee in Little Big League??

Our hearts go out to his friends and family.
