When the YouTube video description warns "He is completely sober," you know a crazy stunt is about to unfold.

This man, who attempts to use a sword to slice a watermelon on a glass table, does not disappoint.

He shatters the table, yelling "Sweet!"

Please don't try this at home -- unless you really hate your furniture.

TV Land pulls Dukes of Hazzard episodes off its schedule

Jul 01, 2015 -- 2:36pm

Is nothing sacred anymore? 

(ew.com)

TV Land has pulled reruns of The Dukes of Hazzard off its schedule, a spokesperson for the network confirmed to EW on Wednesday.

The network did not comment further or say why the episodes were removed, but the news comes as the show became part of the growing national debate over use of the Confederate flag, which is displayed on the roof of the Duke boys’ car.

Last week, Warner Bros. Consumer Products said it would no longer license toys or models of the iconic 1969 Dodge Charger, dubbed General Lee, joining a number of other retailers vowing to stop selling Confederate flag merchandise in the wake of the deadly shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, earlier this month.

The Dukes of Hazzard originally ran on CBS from 1979-1985, following the adventures of Bo and Luke Duke in fictional Hazzard County, Georgia. One of the stars of the show, Ben Jones (who played Cooter Davenport), has come out in defense of the Confederate flag, while a Change.org petition launched Tuesday asking Viacom, Warner Bros., Walmart, and eBay to “stop banning” the hit series. As of this post, that petition has gotten nearly 700 signatures.

Name Your Baby Quinoa And BJ's Might Give You $10,000

Do you want a $10,000 gift card to casual dining restaurant BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse? Just name your baby Quinoa.

The chain, which has 163 "BJ's" restaurants across the nation, announced Wednesday that in celebration of its new quinoa bowl dishes, it is offering the massive gift card to parents who name their newborn baby after the high-protein grain.

“We are so excited to introduce these amazing new Quinoa Bowls that we wanted to do something big, maybe even a little crazy,” Chief Marketing Officer Kevin Maye said in a statement.

If you're trying to win, you better hurry. The official contest rules dictate that there will only be one winner, and that person is whoever names his or her baby Quinoa first during the contest period, which began at 12:00 a.m. PDT on June 22. No, middle names and nicknames don't count, and you have to back it up with a birth certificate.

That's right: You could call your progeny Quinoa, doom him or her to a life of mockery, and still not get $10,000 worth of Cherry Chipotle Glazed Salmon and Carnitas Fries with Chile Verde if you're not the first one to do it.

Personally, we think any sap desperate enough to name their child Quinoa just for a gift card should be rewarded/punished with an endless supply of BJ's.

General Lee Flagged Down

Jun 25, 2015 -- 5:40pm

Oh no, they're missin' with General Lee...

Flagged Down: Warner Bros. is no longer going to allow the General Lee car from Dukes of Hazzard to be produced or licensed with the confederate flag. The company tells Vulture: “Warner Bros. Consumer Products has one licensee producing die-cast replicas and vehicle model kits featuring the General Lee with the confederate flag on its roof — as it was seen in the TV series. We have elected to cease the licensing of these product categories.”

The new policy will mainly affect toy cars.

Warners Bros. made the move because of the Charleston church shootings.


Ben Jones, who played Cooter on “Dukes of Hazzard”, Facebooked: “That flag on top of the General Lee made a statement that the values of the rural South were the values of courage and family and good times.' We are not racists. We think the people who are creating this ‘cultural cleansing’ are the real bigots in this story. Cooter’s is going to continue to sell our Southern symbols as long as there’s a Cooter. I will fight these people until hell freezes over, and then I will fight them on the ice.”
