Kim and Kanye Are Engaged
KANYE WEST rented out AT&T Park, where the San Francisco Giants play, to propose to KIM KARDASHIAN. It happened on Monday, which was Kim’s 33rd birthday. She said yes. And of course, cameras were rolling . . . so we can probably expect to see this on an upcoming episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”.
Kanye blindfolded Kim and took her to AT&T Park in San Francisco, where the Giants play. He had a FULL ORCHESTRA there to play one of Kim’s favorite songs, LANA DEL REY’S “Young and Beautiful”.
Then he got down on one knee and popped the question with a 15-carat diamond, and the words “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” up on the scoreboard. After she said yes, family and friends came out onto the field to celebrate with them.
Kanye spent $35,000 to rent out the stadium . . . and a reported $1.25 million on the ring. (Check out some photos here.)

81% of Women Buy Clothes That Are Too Small So They’ll Lose Weight
According to a new survey, 81% of women buy clothes that are too small, because they think it’ll motivate them to lose weight. More than two-thirds have banned their entire FAMILY from eating certain snacks, so they won’t get tempted themselves. And 25% have put up a photo of a skinny celebrity to remind them of what they WANT their body to look like.
Stupid Photo Trend of the Day: “Mamming” . . . Where You Place Your Breasts on Things
The newest online photo trend is called MAMMING . . . where women take photos of themselves placing their BREASTS on things. It’s SUPPOSED to raise awareness for mammograms and breast cancer prevention . . . but mostly it’s about showing off your breasts
Three Halloween Quick Hits: A One-Legged Guy Dressed as a Flamingo, Your Mask Has Bacteria in It, and Petco’s $25,000 Costume Contest
Here are three random Halloween stories for you. The one-legged guy who dressed as the LEG LAMP from “A Christmas Story” last year has a new costume: he’s balancing upside-down on his crutches to be a flamingo . . . a study found you should sanitize your Halloween mask since they’re filled with bacteria . . . and you have a few more days to enter Petco’s $25,000 pet costume contest online.
1. Last year, a photo went viral of a guy named Josh Sundquist who only has one leg. Because for Halloween, he dressed up as the LEG LAMP from “A Christmas Story”.
This year he’s back with a crazier costume . . . he’s dressing as a FLAMINGO. He’s basically balancing UPSIDE-DOWN on pink arm crutches and has his leg decorated like a flamingo’s head sticking up in the air. (Buzzfeed) (Check it out here.)
2. In case you want a damper on your Halloween . . . that mask you’re going to wear is probably FULL of bacteria. A TV station in Phoenix tested masks and found after just ONE wearing, 100% of them had some contamination inside.
So make sure to sanitize your kid’s mask before he wears it. Even if you bought it new, there’s a chance someone tried it on in the store. (AZ Family)
3. Petco is currently running its annual contest for the best PET COSTUME. You can submit your entry on their Facebook page this week, but voting ends on Sunday, so hustle. The top prize is $25,000. (Petco)
The McDonald’s Dollar Menu and Amazon Free Shipping Both Increased Their Prices
: Two HUGE companies just increased the prices on two very popular items. McDonald’s is officially changing its Dollar Menu to the “Dollar Menu and More” on November 4th, with items costing anywhere from $1 to $5. And you’ll now have to spend at least $35 on Amazon to get free shipping . . . you only needed to spend $25 to get it for the past ten years.
1. The McDonald’s Dollar Menu. We’d heard reports that the McDonald’s Dollar Menu might not be the Dollar Menu for much longer . . . and now it’s official. As of November 4th, it will become the “Dollar Menu and More.”
Yes, there will still be some items on the menu for $1 . . . but it will also include things that cost $2, and even a 20-piece McNuggets that costs $5. In other words, the Dollar Menu and More is basically just the MENU.
2. Amazon Free Shipping. This one caught us off guard. For more than a DECADE now, Amazon has offered free shipping on orders over $25. It’s one of the reasons they became so incredibly popular.
Well, sometime over the past few days, Amazon VERY QUIETLY bumped the minimum up to $35. If you pay the annual fee for Prime shipping, you aren’t affected . . . you’ll still get two-day shipping without paying extra. (AdAge / Consumerist)
