Former NFL Players Call The Brain-Injury Panel A Sham!

nfl brain injury panel sham lawsuit legal matters scary dangerous

The NFL wants you to think it actually cares about the health of their players, but it's sounding more and more like they've always just wanted a quick fix so people will forget all about it.

That's NOT what's going to happen, though! The voices out there about proper education, equipment, and care won't be silenced — and they're getting louder! Former players are even calling attention to the forming of a "brain-injury panel" a few years ago. They're calling it a sham.

Kris Humphries Wants Kim To Admit Their Marriage Was A Fraud…In Court!

Kris Kim Kourt

Will this divorce drama ever END?!

In the latest Kim Kardashian and Kris Humprhies story, Reality Weekly is claiming that Kris plans on taking his former blushing bride to court!

Although he still claims he truly loved her, the NBA player “wants the world to know how badly he was duped into this sham of a marriage."

A prenup prevents him from publicly discussing a lot of details about their marriage, including how much money was made in the deal. However, sources say "if a judge grants the divorce on the grounds of fraud, the prenup is void.”

What's the real reason that Kris is so pissed these days? It's not just that he was dumped, but he was made to look like a fool on national television, as the source continues:

"Kris knew he was going to look like the bad guy on Kourtney and Kim Take New York, but it’s so blatant and over-the-top, it’s just cruel.”

If this blessed union really was a scam, we'd love to learn the details, but if Kris is just being bitter, we suggest he simply move on.

This would make for one hell of a Judge Judy episode though, don't ya think? LOLz!

Olive Garden's Tuscan Cooking School Is A Sham

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueFood

Olive Garden Tuscan Cooking Institute

Although this shouldn't come as a surprise to many, but anyone expecting to taste the secrets of Tuscany at an Olive Garden should probably avoid the chain.

According to a former manager of a franchise location, Olive Garden's Culinary Institute of Tuscany "located in the heart of Tuscany, Italy in a restored 11th century village" is nothing more than a publicity sham.

The manager claims he scored a lucky, all-expense-paid trip to the chain's Tuscan "culinary institute" (supposedly pictured above) in 2007, but spent more time boozing and touring the country than doing any actual cooking.

A "culinary institute" suggests there is some kind of campus or school, however, the manager reveals it is simple a hotel that the company books in the off-season, while using its restaurant for sporadic "classes" that lasted "maybe an hour here or there" where they would "talk about spices or fresh produce for a minute".

Sounds VERY prestigious.

While spilling his guts on an online messaging board under the name FIDELIA079, the anonymous manager continued to write:

"The only time we saw the 'chef' was when she made a bolognese sauce while taking pictures with each of us to send to our local newspapers. They sent pre-written articles to our local newspaper with fake quotes from me and a group photo. Also, every year when they would run the promotion I was supposed to wear a special 'chef' coat and make conversation with guests who ordered the promotional meals."

We doubt this news will ward off too many customers who go for the modest prices, as well as the endless soup, salad, and breadsticks.

However, maybe it's time for the restaurant to stop pretending their "authentic Italian" recipes are from the "heart of Tuscany" and start acknowledging they're from a corporate instructional manual.
