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.

WTF is wrong with these people!?!?!
A woman in Taiwan killed herself on her 31st birthday while sharing her progress with "friends" on Facebook chat and NONE of the nine individuals called the police!
Ugh! So sad!
Apparently a few of the individuals tried to track her down and prevent her from dying themselves, but c'mon! If you're not within a close range of somebody that is hurting herself, YOU HAVE TO CALL EMERGENCY SERVICES!!!

Momma does not look happy!
An eager Taiwanese baseball fan forgot he was a father and completely DROPPED his young daughter while lunging to catch a foul ball!
For what it's WORTH…he completely missed the ball too. LOLz!
Luckily, this poor girl only fell a few feet into the next seat and was quickly scooped back up by the embarrassed father who gets an earful from his wife!
Sadly, this isn't the first time we've seen this and we're betting it won't be the last.
Guys, we know you love baseball, but you should love your kids more. Check out the mishap above!
