In the world of men’s fashion, there are some interesting items making a comeback. The fanny pack has been elevated to a men’s “It Bag” on the runways at Prada, Fendi and Gucci.

The global VP of men’s design at Levi’s said: “Jean shorts are definitely making a comeback for summer 2021.” Handup Gloves, an outdoor gear company in Tennessee, sells $40-ish jorts that “fly off the shelves.” According to their head of marketing, it was nostalgia that brought them back. He and his coworkers fondly recalled wearing jorts all summer back in the 1980s and ’90s “to cruise around the neighborhood.”

‘Flat-Chested’ Hooters Waitress Shows How She Fakes Huge Boobs For Job... (And Tip$)
A “flat-chested” med student working at Hooters shoqwed her TikTok fans how she turns her barely there bosom into mountainous moneymakers every night. Kirsten Songer says, “I have the chest of a teenage boy." So, in order to boost her double A cups, she begins the process by strapping on her handy-dandy Amazon push-up bra. “It’s a bra on Amazon that adds two cups. It’s really padded." The University of South Carolina Medical School coed said, "It’s supposed to be like the Bombshell”... (the Victoria’s Secret $70 undergarment). “It’s not quite as good, but it’s half the price." After giving her girls a little lift, she stuffs the bra with $8.99 silicone inserts — or “sticky boobs” that she purchased from Walmart. “[The sticky boobs] are what makes the most difference in my appearance. It’s what pushes my boobs together to create the cleavage line in the center.” In her Hooters how-to video, Songer then executes her final bustline fabrication step: chest contouring. “I take some dark contour and just follow the shape of my boobs." For this part of the process, she uses makeup to lightly draw lines of definition onto her chest that create the illusion of curviness. “And now they look huge." On average, she rakes in anywhere between $50 to $400 a shift.

The City With The WORST Traffic Is... NOT L.A.
A new study reveals which city has the worst traffic, and it's no longer Los Angeles. A Texas A&M Transportation Institute study had ranked the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim region as the area with the country's worst traffic since 1982. But the institute's 2021 Urban Mobility Report showed the New York-Newark region now has the worst traffic in the nation. The rankings are based on the total amount of hours drivers were delayed. The New York-Newark region spent 494,268 hours stuck in traffic last year, while the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim had 365,543 hours of time in traffic. With a stay-at-home order in place for much of the year, many California employees worked from home. A drop in traffic was spread throughout the country as well; the top 15 cities with the worst traffic in 2020 combined dropped, on average, from 312,680 to 152,347 total hours. New York-Newark also placed first for average amount of hours a driver spent in traffic last year with 56 hours. The top five areas and hours were: New York-Newark , 56 Boston, 50 Houston, 49 Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim, 46 San Francisco-Oakland, 46 ** Even though nationwide traffic dipped to some of the lowest levels in the past 30 years, it isn't expected to remain like that. By September, traffic conditions were beginning to rise, and with California now fully re-opened, Los Angeles may be coming back for it's title.

In a recent interview Shaq slammed LeBron saying, “When you’re living in a world where 40 million people have been laid off and I’m making $200 million, you won’t get no complaining from me, I’d play back to back to back to back to back.” He added, “I’m not knocking what anybody said, but me personally, I don’t complain and make excuses because real people are working their tail off and all we gotta do is train two hours a day, and then play a game for two hours at night and make a lot of money.”
Olympian Gwen Berry Doubles Down On Her Criticism of 'Disrespectful' Star-Spangled Banner
Team USA Olympian Gwen Berry says she is not anti-American and believes she should still compete in the Tokyo 2021 games after turning away from the American flag during the national anthem. Speaking to the Black News Channel about the backlash the gesture received, Berry said Tuesday: 'I never said that I didn't want to go to the Olympic games, that's why I competed and got third and made the team.' 'I never said that I hated the country. I never said that. All I said was I respect my people enough to not stand for or acknowledge something that disrespects them. I love my people. Point blank, period.' The two-time Olympian Berry is sponsored by the leftist defund-the-police advocate group Color of Change. She explained that she takes offense to the third line of the Star-Spangled Banner, which references slavery. Berry said: 'If you know your history, you know the full song of the National Anthem, the third paragraph speaks to slaves in America, our blood being slain...all over the floor. It's disrespectful and it does not speak for black Americans. It's obvious. There's no question.' The offending part of the song reads: 'And where is that band who so vauntingly swore, that the havoc of war and the battle's confusion. A home and a country, should leave us no more? Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution. No refuge could save the hireling and slave, From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave.' In the BNC interview, Berry says that the song is a reference to catching and beating runaway slaves. This interpretation of the lyrics is disputed. Some historians claim the words are intended as a direct threat towards slaves, whereas others claim it is about manipulating black Americans to fight for the British having been promised their freedom in return.
