Miss Universe Flub reportedly rigged according to insider

Seasons greetings everyone!

People Liking People is coming out of retirement to report on an amusing event that has all the ingredients we look for in a story - fame, fortune, and embarrassment. And now we can add one more ingredient to the list - shenanigans. I'm sure you all have heard about what happened during the 2015 Miss Universe pageant where Steve Harvey slipped up and read that the winner was Miss Columbia, only to correct himself that Miss Colombia is actually the first runner up, and the real winner is Miss Philippines. The result was pure awkwardness as Miss Columbia stood there for a couple of minutes wearing the crown before it was taken off and placed on Miss Philippines instead. Even though the event was days ago, spectators are still bickering about how it went down, and some Colombians are still holding on to the idea that their beloved Miss Colombia retains the title. Among the chaos stands a respectful Miss Philippines, who has done all she could to remain above the fray and carry herself with dignity.

We now have a new angle to the story: An industry insider has just come out and states that the slip-up was actually staged in order to garner publicity for the franchise.

If you're going to pull something off like this, you gotta do it right. For the most part, we do think it went well enough to get the conversations stirring, but did you guys forget to pay someone? Why is this insider spilling the beans if he supposedly worked for the organization?

It certainly raises more questions than answers, but we'll definitely be staying tuned to see where this goes next. If this is staged, then who should hold the crown? Should they do it over again?

Have a happy holidays!

Beware of Woman-Abuser Paul Allen Derrick

Hey all, it's been a long time. We've been busy. But we wanted to bring to your attention something very important. There is a sick predator lose on the streets by the name of Paul Allen Derrick. This guy's sick desires has somehow managed to avoid notice of the Richland County, as they actually had him employed as a sheriff's deputy. His mental instability was recently brought out into the open however, when a video captured by a customer at Buffalo Wild Wings in Columbia, SC caught Derrick in the act of one of his tricks of trying to force a woman into submission by violent coercion methods. This would have all gone on without much notice if it hadn't been for an alert patron who began taking video of the scene as soon as he realized something wasn't right. View the video below:

Details are scant as far as what Paul Allen Derrick was using as his justification for attempting to subdue the woman, but those who were there say he blew up when she rejected his advances. She no doubt saw him for the predator he is, and his next actions proved this assumption correct. As you can see from the video, he manhandles her, pulls out handcuffs and a gun and bosses (and tosses) her around like a drill sergeant. At first, there is confusion in the air, with customers not quite sure what's going on but assuming Paul Allen Derrick must be some sort of authority figure making a legitimate arrest. As his attack continues, it becomes more clear that this is no typical arrest, and Paul Allen Derrick is not your typical officer. This is a deranged man with a sick lust for what he can't have, and will use his everything within his power - this time handcuffs and a gun - to gain compliance for his pleasure. It makes you wonder what tactics he would have used if he wasn't out in public, and where it would have led to.

So where are we now? Fortunately the police were called and Paul Allen Derrick was arrested. He's now on unpaid leave. That's a good start, and it shows that the police recognize that this a monster and not a legitimate officer. But what's the next step? We won't be satisfied until he's locked up behind bars for a long time, away from women and children.

If you or anyone you know has been a victim of Paul Allen Derrick, please send us an e-mail or leave a message in the comments. Of course, do call the police as well.  The community needs to know about predators like this walking around, and it's only after we put all the pieces together that we can make a case for putting this sicko away for good. Now that Paul Allen Derrick has been shown in public to be the monster he's been all along, it will be interesting to see how he reacts. The fake facade of authority and respect has been shattered, and now there's nothing to stop him from indulging in what he has craved all along. If Richland County is smart, they're monitoring this whackjob 24/7. It also behooves the rest of the community to be on alert as well. If you see this man, do keep in mind that he is armed and will not hesitant to use violence against you, especially if you're a woman. Try to avoid eye contact, call the police, and remain or flee to a safe area. If you have any information about Paul Allen Derrick, feel free to include it in the comments below. We will make updates as we receive them.

Update: Paul Allen Derrick has been fired from his position at Richland County. We commend Richland County Sheriff's Department for doing the right thing. Far too often incidents like this are swept under the rug but we must give credit where credit is due. Great job Richland County!

We look forward to seeing charges filed against Mr. Derrick for false imprisonment, along with other charges involving his use of a fire arm in public while intoxicated, as an instrument of intimidation.

The Justice Department needs to think this stuff over before talking to the media. Who's approving these talking points?

The latest quote out of this Time Magazine article:

“Mr. Snowden’s claim that he is focused on supporting transparency, freedom of the press and protection of individual rights and democracy is belied by the protectors he has potentially chosen: China, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela and Ecuador,” the official said. “His failure to criticize these regimes suggests that his true motive throughout has been to injure the national security of the U.S., not to advance Internet freedom and free speech.”

Hey dumbasses, you're going after him for espionage. You're going after him with such force and threat, that the places where he will be the safest from arrest are the countries that we're at odds with the most. Good job idiots. I'm sure he'd be just find living in the United States if you'd let him, but if you haven't noticed lately, he's sort of a a priority of the US Government at the moment to track down and arrest. Any friendly country to the US that he could go to would send him right back. So you're forcing his hand of going to the countries of our enemies. Did you not really think this stuff through?

And he's not criticizing those regimes because he's trying to get on their good side so he can live there in peace. Why would he start talking shit about the countries that might be offering him asylum? Do you even think this stuff over before you open your big mouths? This has been such an embarrassment for our government and these stupid comments in the press aren't helping. Get your shit together already.

We're Calling BS on The Tornado Hunt 2013 Vehicles Caught in the Tornado Story

This picture along with the story that several of the vehicles manned by the "Weather Channel Tornado Hunt Team" were damaged and in one particular instance thrown 200 yards, are making the rounds lately. Everyone survived, with only minor injuries. "What we were trying to do was just get away from it and get to the south side of it. But what ended up happening was all three of our vehicles that we chase with were all hit by it," says Meteorologist Mike Bettes.

How convenient. The tornado hunt vehicles getting caught in a tornado. Is that ironic? Obvious? It seems a little too perfect for the Weather Channel, who is now trying to milk these pictures and the story for all they're worth.

So where's the video of all this from inside? Oh, there is none? You mean 3 tornado hunt vehicles are driving around and actually find themselves in the middle of a tornado, and somehow not one of them catches it on video? So far all we have is a couple pictures of a beat up vehicle prominently displaying the Tornado Hunt logo.

Take a look at this wider shot where it almost looks like someone just parked it a little off the road. There's cars driving by that appear to be having no problem, while the Tornado Hunt vehicle is all by itself with no other vehicles that had been tossed.


Could this turn out to have actually happened? Maybe, but for now we're calling BS. Looks like a stunt.

Georgia Police set up drop off locations where folks can get rid of their old medication


Savannah area police and sheriff's deputies say they rounded more than 200 pounds of expired and unwanted drugs as part of a national sweep.

Authorities say residents turned up at police precincts with everything from a single prescription bottle to bags full of drugs to turn them over to authorities with no questions asked.

That's a good idea, we're going to set up one of these "bring your old drugs here so we can destroy them" booths ourselves and take pills from old ladies all day long. Just think of all the goodies you'd score by the end of the day, we'd be like kids on halloween going through our bags.

I can't believe this actually works and people actually bring in their pills. Have they not heard of the trash? Yeah, I'm sure drug addicts are just combing over landfills looking for thrown away pills. And even if they were, it's still not worth it to go out of your way to some center to dispose of your pills. This is nothing but "feel like we're doing something" bullshit. The only people who bring in their old pills are the ones who would never abuse them or give them to others in the first place. It's not stopping one person from popping pills or taking the wrong medication. And can we really trust that the police are really just going to dispose of them all? I know I wouldn't.

Mother makes a fool out of her kids by posting video of them after dental procedure

Do these idiots really think acting like this is cute? Nobody is going to convince us that they really believe they don't have teeth or that the girl really thinks her brother has a tampon in his mouth. They're feeling the effects of the anesthesia sure, but they're playing it up to be cute and get attention from their mom, which is pretty damn pathetic considering how old they are. We get it, you feel a little loopy, it happens to all of us. Stop acting like a 3-year-old, it's not cute when you're almost an adult.

The mother is just as pathetic for thinking she'd be able to cash in on such a stupid video, like it was going to be the next David after the dentist video or something. David was a little kid so it made sense for him to act like a little kid. Yours are just an embarrassment.

Boston bombing hero: what about the woman?

Everyone's talking about the hero in the cowboy hat, Carlos Arredondo, but what about the Asian woman that's actually pushing the wheelchair? She's a hero too and deserves recognition as well. Of course, all of the responders do, but if you're going to make a hero out of someone based on this picture, how about choosing the one actually doing the most work?
