A teacher in Oklahoma is facing some serious charges over allegations of sleeping with a student. According to The New York Post, Joyce Churchill was taken into police custody and charged with rape. The volleyball coach at Berryhill High School was accused of having a threesome with a student along with another woman who allegedly used to work in the district.
The student claimed that Churchwell invited him over to her house last school year where they had an alleged menage a trois. Casey Roebeck, a rep for the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office, said that the student “admitted that this encounter had taken place at the teacher’s home along with another adult female — a former teacher at the district."
Churchwell would later turn herself into authorities after a warrant was issued for her arrest where the charged her with rape. However, her arrest has led to the police to believe there might be more victims affected. Police found out that she had been messaging another student.
The school revealed in a statement that Joyce Churchwell has been placed on leave of absence in wake of the allegations. "The Berryhill School District takes the safety of its students very seriously and does everything it can to provide a safe learning environment," the statement reads. “The district is currently cooperating with law enforcement in the investigation of these allegations and will take appropriate action when the investigation is completed.”
Study Says Watching Movies In A Theatre Is Considered A "Light Workout"
Grab your movie tickets!
If one of your new year’s resolutions was to become more active and work out more than your usual routine then good news has come your way from University College London.

A test was conducted on a group of 51 individuals who watched the latest Aladdin film as their heart rates were being monitored, in comparison to a group of 26 people reading. The cinema-goers had 45 minutes of being in a “healthy heart zone” as their heartbeat was at 40 and 80 percent of its maximum rate.
“At the cinema specifically, there is nothing else to do except immerse yourself,” Neuroscience professor at UCL, Dr Joseph Devlin, said. “On top of this, our ability to sustain focus and attention plays a critical role in building our mental resilience, because problem-solving typically requires a concentrated effort to overcome obstacles. In other words, our ability to work through problems without distraction makes us better able to solve problems and makes us more productive.”
He added: “In a world where it is increasingly difficult to step away from our devices, this level of sustained focus is good for us.”
Teen YouTuber Arrested For "Armed Robbery" Prank On His Own Mother
Clout chasing is a helluva drug.
The term clout chasing has taken on a life of its own in the last few years but it seems like kids across the Internet are doing whatever they want for a couple of views and likes. Such is the case with one teen from Ohio who allegedly staged a robbery on his own mother in order to get his clout levels up.
Fox43 reports that a 17-year-old boy and his three friends played a “prank” on his mother where they wore ski masks and pulled up on the 40-year-old woman. As the evidently shook woman was approached in her driveway, the four kids demanded that she enter into her home where they put a gun to her head and made her get on the floor. From there, investigators said they demanded her money.
Although the boy, who clearly doesn’t have an ounce of common sense, staged a fight with the intruders and from there, his mother escaped. “
“I just did a fake robbery prank on my mom and she ran. I know she called the police. She’s nowhere to be found,” the boy told a 911 dispatcher. “I just don’t want the police to come here aggressive, if you get what I’m saying.”
With shock, the dispatcher asked, “you did a fake robbery prank on your mother?”
“Yeah, but she thought it was for real. Like when I got to wrestling my friends for fake, she ran out of the house,” he responded.
At the same time, a neighbor also called police to inform them that a woman was panicking on their porch. The teen then informed police that he couldn’t fine his mother who had fled the scene. “[S]he thought it was for real. Like when I got to wrestling my friends for fake, she ran out of the house. … I do YouTube. It was on YouTube, so I did a YouTube prank. … It’s still live right now,” he said.
The 17-year-old and another one of his friends are looking at juvenile charges while another 19-year-old and 18-year-old are also facing charges for their roles in the incident.
Michigan Man Returns $43,000 Found In Thrift Store Couch
Man's got quite the moral compass.
Usually, if you buy a couch from a thrift store, you just hope that there are no awful surprises inside it, like bed bugs. The possibility that it could contain some buried treasure probably wouldn't even cross your mind. A man in Michigan has stumbled upon $43,000 in a couch that he thrifted, but decided not to keep the good fortune to himself.
Howard Kirby bought the couch in December at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Owosso, located about 30 miles west of Flint. He sat on the ottoman in his man cave for weeks before searching his new purchase for the source of his discomfort. His daughter decided to open it up and discovered that the lumpiness was stemming from a sizeable stash of cash. A total of $43,170 USD was found in the ottoman cushion. “I still have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming or something,” Kirby told WNEM.
Despite a lawyer having told Kirby that he had no legal obligation to return the money to its original possessor, Kirby didn't feel right keeping it. He reached out to the thrift store to find out who donated the couch and, on Jan. 16, a surprise was made out of giving all the money back to Kim Fauth-Newberry. The couch had belonged to Fauth-Newberry's grandfather, who died last year. “It’s just crazy,” Fauth-Newberry said. “It’s completely awesome."
Even though Kirby admitted that the money would have been of great benefit to him (he needs a new roof badly), he takes pride in how he confronted this moral dilemma. “I always thought, 'What would I do if that ever happened?' Now I know, and it makes me feel good,” Kirby said.
17-Year-Old Makes History In Ohio After Graduating From College Before Finishing High School
Ya love to see it.
17-year-old Cameron Ray just defied the educational odds. The Ohio teen managed to graduate college before he’s even out of high school, making history in his hometown of Warrensville Heights. Though Cameron is still a junior in high school, he recently became the youngest student from Warrensville to earn a college degree before officially graduating high school after he earned his Associate’s degree from Cuyahoga Community College. Though he won’t be graduating high school until the spring of 2021, Cameron plans to attend Cleveland State University next semester to pursue his dream of becoming a film director.
Cameron was able to accomplish this impressive feat by enrolling in college early thanks to a special program called Ohio College Credit Plus. The program was implemented back in 2015 in order to allow students in grades 7 through 12 to earn college credits. Ohio families have benefitted greatly from this program, which has saved them more than $569 million in tuition and prepares students more thoroughly for their future careers. Cameron spoke about his exceptional accomplishment, saying, “Everyone is usually pretty surprised when I tell them I’m only a junior in high school. I’ve learned that sometimes it’s the best things in life you’ll be fearful of. But you’ve got to push yourself and get acquainted.” Preach!
Cheetos Has An Official Name For Cheesy Residual Dust Left On Fingers
Cheeto dust is formally referred to as cheetle and it's apparently been a thing for over a decade.
Cheetos has been around since the late 40s and since then, it's been infamous for leaving orange dust on your fingers. It's essentially inevitable if anyone sticks their hand into a bag of their chips. The residual matter is referred to as Cheeto Dust because, well, that's exactly what is it. However, the company has formally come out to announce the actual name of Cheeto Dust.
No longer should anyone refer to Cheeto Dust as Cheeto Dust. From here on out, Cheetos has declared their cheesy powder as Cheetle. Taking to social media, their animated mascot confirmed the news while Dictionary.com confirmed that this has been the official name of it. In fact, they revealed that Cheetle has been around for the past 10 years, even though this is clearly news to the rest of the world.
Perhaps everyone has just been willfully ignorant of the term. Cheetos has reminded people that it's called "Cheetle" on a few occasions. Tweets stemming back to 2015 referred to the dust as Cheetle while recent tweets from the last few weeks have reminded the masses that Cheetle is the correct term.
Of course, people on social media were confused about this while others questioned whether this will stick in the long-run or if people will continue to call it "Cheeto Dust." That's a choice you're going to have to make.
PornHub Responds To Deaf Man’s Lawsuit: "We Do Have A Closed Captions Category"
The vice president for PornHub issues a statement regarding Yaroslav Suris lawsuit.
There’s an argument to be made about how PornHub has tried to be as inclusive as possible with their website in order for everyone to be able to access their videos.

A Puppy Born With Green Fur Named Hulk Has The Internet Going Crazy
Looking like the cutest little tennis ball.
A North Carolina family was positively perplexed last Friday, when they discovered something rather unusual about one of their newborn puppies. Their white German shepherd, Gypsy, gave birth to eight pups total, but the fourth one stood out a little from the rest.
"I started freaking out because it was green," Shana Stamey told local outlet WIS News 10 about the little guy, whose name is, fittingly, Hulk. "He was lime green and super mad, so yeah, he became Hulk," she said. Other than this odd colouring, all eight puppies came out totally healthy. Despite Hulk's clean bill of health, his fur colour defect is, however, the result of something a little gross. According to Suzanne Cianiciulli, a veterinarian technician at Junaluska Animal Hospital, the lime green colour comes from meconium, which is an infant mammal’s earliest stool. "The sack that they’re in when they’re in their mom, there can be meconium in there, and that tends to stain them,” she revealed. The poop stain will eventually fade away until it's gone for good, as Hulk's doggy mom licks him and he gets bathed by his human family. Of course, the crazy story had Twitter going nuts over the adorable little tennis ball pup.
However, some argued that the puppy was actually yellow, not lime green. The puppy quickly became another "black and blue/white and gold dress" dilemma.
Walmart Apologizes For Insensitive Paul Walker Tweet
Walmart's social media manager was a little too quick with a recent response to a user since their supposed joke was received as insensitive. After a fan of the store's Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls expressed on Twitter that they would be speeding to the nearest location to cop the strawberry and cream-flavored bites, Walmart responded writing: "Hey, Paul Walker. Click it, or ticket."
Considering that Paul sadly passed in 2013 after a car crash in California, the Twitterverse was quick to call out the tone-deaf comment. "OMG. You can delete it all you want @Walmart but whoever posted that better be fired. So tasteless. RIP Paul Walker - died in my hometown," one user wrote, while another added, "WalMart referencing a Workaholics line from 2011 (that was from an episode that aired before Paul Walker died) 7 years after Walker died and the line would be in poor taste is just another reason to not encourage the brands."
Walmart has since apologized for the tweet, writing: "We apologize to Paul Walker's family, friends and fans. The tweet was posted in poor judgment and has been removed."
Some users, however, didn't see the harm. "I get why people are mad at the WalmartPaul Walker thing, but I feel like this was more of a fast and furious reference, because he literally drove fast in the movies. Also this was a quote from some show I don't think they meant it to come off as disrespectful."
Let us know what you think.
Tyler, The Creator Paid $100 For A Random New Yorker’s $10 Sunglasses
Not that’s a come-up!
Anyone would be more than flattered if a superstar rapper not only complimented their steez but then proceeded to offer cash money for the aforementioned fashionable possession. Well, that’s exactly what happened to an unsuspecting commuter in NYC recently when she was approached by none other than Tyler, The Creator.

Given the fact that Tyler is well known for his swagged-out sunnies, as seen above while flexing for cameras at the 2019 Innovator Awards last November, it’s not exactly surprising that the IGOR rapper would be interested in copping a new set of frames. What is surprising is the way he went about it and how much he was willing to spend.
Here’s how TMZ breaks down the story:
The exchange ended with the lucky lady meeting Tyler at a nearby ice cream shop, where he proceeded to drop a c-note in her hand and even take a pic with her to prove it all actually happened. The things you see in NYC, man!
This wouldn’t be the first time Tyler, The Creator jacked a random person’s shades. Peep this quick clip below of a fan who says Tyler wore his girlfriend’s sunnies onstage during the Cherry Bomb Tour in 2015:
