Matchmaking mis-hAPP

Matchmaking app for British farmers to find potential partners for their livestock

There is an app out that is a lot like tinder except this app is for cattle. “Tudder” is an app that helps farmers choose a partner for their cattle. They can swipe right on the ones they like or left on the ones they don’t like. The app also provides the information the farmers want to know about the cattle they like. Once selecting the cattle they like, they are then directed to SellMyLivestock.co.uk to look over more pictures and information.

Bank Robber makes the “right” decision at the last second

In Fall River, Massachusetts, a woman walks into the Fall River Municipal Credit Union and walks up to one of the tellers, police say. She then hesitates before telling the teller “give me a minute,” before walking over to a counter and writing on a slip of paper. Before walking back with the piece of paper, she rips it up, throws it in the trash and leaves. The bank employees said they pieced the note back together and it read, “Give me the money.”
