Dumb & Dumber is one of the most infamous comedies of the last few decades and for good reason. Either idolized or despised by the viewing audience, the classic has stood the test of time and remains one of the most well known and quotes movies to date. Being able to quote the film seamlessly is almost commonplace in society now and days, what’s not however, is attempting the infamous mini bike trip… until now.
RevZilla’s Common Trend members Ari Henning and Zack Courts recreated the 350+ mile journey from Nebraska to Aspen on their very own custom built, scale mini bike replica! The pull-start bike complete with streamers and basket was just the start however, the whole journey wouldn’t have been worth it without bringing along a suitcase! The team researched the most probable rout the dynamic duo could’ve traveled, mapped it out, and headed for the Rockies!
The journey was not without its challenges as one may suspect, the team blowing out two back tires from the pressure of the trip. The small unstable frame of the bike made for a difficult time navigating through high wind speeds and curves while trying to remain stable. More issues the pair encountered can be found in their account of the trip and the process leading up to it here on RevZilla, where they also detail a few encounters with the law.
The guys made the long hull to Aspen, “Some place warm, a place where the beer flows like wine, where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano”, proving the ridiculous completely possible. Dressed head to toe in their best Harry and Lloyd attire, Briefcase in hand, and a “hog” that’ll get 70, or at least close to, miles to the gallon! Let’s just hope they didn’t do it all for a girl named Mary!

We just have one more question, was John Denver a load of shit, man?
How much would you be willing to pay for an authentic item from your favorite musician? A guitar pick caught in concert, a shirt, scarf, autograph, or even an instrument itself are all commonplace among collectors in the music world. However what about personal, and every day items you wouldn’t necessarily associate with your favorite act. Believe it or not, some of the highest closing auctions for musicians belong to some of the most unique items that may seem like nothing more than common trash to some. Well, one mans trash is another’s treasure they say, and with that in mind here are just a few of the most bizarre items that sold for ridiculous amounts of money at auction.
Justin Timberlake’s French Toast
If you had to re-read that we don’t blame you! Yes, this is correct. All the way back in the year 2000, Justin had just finished a morning interview on New York based radio station Z-100 where he was served a French toast breakfast. According to Ew.com, the morning show host then listed the remaining slices on eBay where they sold at auction for a whopping $1,025. The winner was a 19 year old student who claims she would “probably freeze-dry it, then seal it…then put it on my dresser”. We hate to burst her bubble, but I got French toasts this morning at Denny’s for $7.
Jerry Lee Lewis’s Ointment
Typically people don’t want the possession of their own ointment to be public knowledge, let alone someone else’s! But, what if that some else is “the killer” himself? The auction containing a tube of nasal ointment and two empty prescription pill bottles belonging to the wild child himself ended at $384. A substantial amount of money for something that I’m sure we could categorize as medical waste of you ask me. Even more intreating, the items were put up for auction by Lewis’s Ex-wife.
William Shatner’s Kidney Stone
The spoken word artist is no stranger to the occasional online auction, His Star Trek costumes reaching over $100,000 at times. However, in 2006 Shatner himself took to Julien’s Auctions to list his “sizable” kidney stone in an effort to raise money for Habitat for Humanity. Offering a substantial $25,000, the auction was won by GoldenPalace.com, an online casino. Additionally, the casino initially offered $15,000 which Shatner turned down! Clearly William knows exactly what “a piece of him” is worth!
Britney Spears’s Pregnancy Test
There’s obsessive and then there’s down right creepy. While none of these items have been particularly “normal” to want in your collection, we can’t help but think this the next level. Fortunately for our sanity, the piss stick was taken by GoldenPalace.com in 2005 to add to their ever-growing collection of “oddities”. That being said the online casino rolled out an impressive $5,001 for charity on this one. Surprisingly snagging the item a lot cheaper than a piece of Britney’s used gum that went for $14,000 and didn’t even include a COA.
Elvis’s Backgammon Board
Next time you are convinced nobody plays Backgammon, just remember The King himself was an avid player who even took his travel board with him. That same travel board would find its way to auction in 2016 closing at $1,024. A few rounds of high stakes backgammon and the buyer will have his money back in no time!
Six Strands of Kurt Cobain’s Hair
Capping off our list with the most recent addition to the auction block. Over the weekend of May 15th 2021, Six strands of Kurt Cobain’s hair sold for $14,145. Notably, the hair in question was accompanied by an official COA as well as a photograph of the seller with the late Nirvana frontman during the haircut. Now don’t get me wrong, I love Nirvana as much as the next guy, but I’m not going balls to the walls to showcase 6 strands of hair. In that vein, if you’ve got the money I’ve got a haircut coming up soon!

I’d imagine that the adult scholastic book fair would possibly offer a wide range of different categories of books, magazines, planners, and adult coloring books like the ones with the swear words. As well as tiny do dad’s similar to the chocolate bar calculator, drum stick pencils, and slap bracelet rulers but more like a small dehumidifier, google homes, and maybe small DIY kits.
The book categories:
• Romance novels
• Pornographic magazines
• Pre-mentioned adult coloring books
• All the Harry Potters of course
• Writing prompt books
• Anime items
• Political genre
• And many more
I do believe that an adult scholastic book fair would be amazing, do it in the same style as well like it would be a pop-up shop in your local library or even better a pop-up at your nearest Barnes and Nobel.
In truest scholastic book fair fashion all the proceeds would go to something good, but have I put that much thought into this, no.
Anyway I will always be mentally at the scholastic book fair and I will not rest until I get to go to another one.
I walked into His house after having a crazy evening out at the store and took a biiiig ole shit. Next thing yaknow He walks in and goes, “Aw hell no! Well goddamn son. That’s the worst dhuke I’ve ever smelt!”
All is Not Well Between Former Lithium Band Mates!
As of the night of Wednesday March 3rd 2021, Lithium guitarist Evan Sinarski and founding member Brayden D. do not appear to be on speaking terms!
While details about the issue have yet to come out, regarding the questions as to what lead to the reported falling out, Current guitarist, Evan Sinarski, appears to have cut all contact with the founding member.
For those not aware, Local “Legendary” “Rock” band, Lithium formed in the summer of 2015 as a Nirvana tribute. The brainchild of Style (Jordan Toler) accompanied by guitarist Brayden D., saw the addition of current guitarist Evan Sinarski merely a month and a half after the bands inception. While Brayden departed from the group in late 2015, citing “creative differences” on the part of Style, Evan and Style remained turning out music still to this day. The duo accompanied by a slew of studio/session drummers and bassists, have made server almost appearances including CHS’s town hall rock off, and live on NCU Radio.
The trio has and two brief reunions, both resulting from Evan Sinarski’s departure and leave from The United States Air Force. While there seemed to be no bad blood between the three men, Evan Sinarski, when asked about what had transpired had this to say…
“I just blocked Brayden on every social media platform lol.”
While no official public statement has been issued by either the official Lithium social media pages or Sinarski’s, the claim seems to be factual as Sinarski’s social media platforms seem to lack a familiar name in their following list.
More information will be provided as the story progresses.
It was a typical afternoon after the bombs fell. Sierra was helping me prepare my favorite gin and coke when I randomly got this urge to just punch something. No, my name isn’t Kyle and I don’t drink monsters everyday but sometimes you just get that urge to break things yaknow? I walked outside and the closest thing that I saw that wasn’t mine was a nearby fire hydrant.
After punching it, I realized that my raw strength was too much for this pathetic little yellow hydrant. With regret in my heart, I decided to try and fix it before the fire department arrived. I grabbed the nearest tools that I had in my truck and ran over to the Geiser that I created.
My maintenance skills seemed to prove me right as well….but not well enough. As I was fixing the fire hydrant, I knew it would be a one way trip. The pressure was too much to hold by myself and knowing that I could get engulfed any second, I was ready to meet the end.
After tightening the last bit of the hydrant, I close my eyes and when I open them, I’m confused. I’m lying down in some random gym and I’m repping 225 like it’s nothing? What’s going on? I finish my set and look around. Nothing seems to have changed about me other than the fact that I can now bench 225 for reps. I get a call from a random number.
“Hello Andrew this is Dr. Phillips calling as an update of your health since the accident. We did some more studies and we concluded that your condition was related to the accident and that it will progressively grow over time. The next chance you get, we request for you to schedule another appointment with us. Thank you and bye bye now.”
This isn’t anything that I wanted. This wasn’t supposed to be how my life went. I was so much better than this. The pain in my head keeps growing like demons clouding my thoughts. I know what I must do to stop this endless curse.
I return to the spot that started this all. I see that retched metal tube of water that ruined my life. This is our last fight buddy. I wrap my arms around it and tear it out of the concrete. The pressure explodes but it does nothing to me because of this “condition.” I look down into its soul while it’s in my arms and I whisper to it,
“This is Andrew W.K. and this is Destroy, Build, Destroy.”
Doggystyle?!! We’re not animals! I know my wife better than that. She may have a habit of getting her hand stuck in the car door, and I am a handy man myself. When it comes to blue collar jobs however, it’s a no go for me. Growing up in the church, I assumed that all women weren’t like my wife.
Look, I know what a succubus is alright? I literally live in the church. I just had no idea that my sweet little angel would act like this. We were just at the county fair enjoying the food when a group of guys walked by dressed as medieval knights. They were quoting absurd things like necromancy and she started to chime in. It’s like she became a completely different person!
After talking to them for 15 minutes, she seemed a little off. I asked her how she knew all of this stuff and she basically shrugged me off. So later that night, I made sure to stay up and make sure she knew I wasn’t awake. What happened absolutely shocked me.
She left the house at 2:40AM. I knew exactly where she was heading. I followed her to one of the large tents at the fair. She had no idea that I was watching from afar. I-I can’t describe what I saw because I get sick. Those men, the cameras, the…I know now that I can never look at her the same again. Later that week, I started faking a bad cough and recommended her to go to the hospital.
The results came in. I had no idea that she was like this. I’ve been married to her for so long. I know I have it too. I-I just. I have to go now. There’s nothing else left to say.
Peak into what a day in the life of an average American Citizen would have looked like in a timeline where Kanye West won the 2020 Presidential Election.
You’re awoken to the sound of Wolves by President West playing over sirens off in the distance, looking to either side of you is a field with tall grass. You begin to realize you’re surrounded by literally everyone you know and even those you don’t. From Celebrities to distant cousins you haven’t had full conversations with in over ten years; To you close family, friends and even your teachers from P.S.R. showed up. Before you can even begin to fathom your surroundings the purr of an ATV engine can be heard coming from down the side of a mountain within eyesight, it’s President West. You’re on his Wyoming ranch. Before any of this can settle in Kanye West is here and it is time to begin Morning Mass.
After Morning Mass, Yeezy begins his 10 hour studio session with Jay-Z, Drake, Lil Wayne, Kid Cudi, Q-Tip, Elton John, Travis Scott, Mike Tyson, Ronald McDonald, Busta Rhymes, Lil Pump, Justin Timberlake,Michael Bublé, Snoop Dogg, Justin Bieber, Allen Iverson, Tupac (in hologram form), Oprah, God Himself, Aunt Jemima, Uncle Jessie, Tony Hawk (seems like could spit mad bars), Master Yoda, The Underaker, Michelangelo (T.M.N.T.), The Golden Girls (Again, in hologram form with the exception of Betty White), Bob Ross, and Chance The Rapper.
Literally everything else in The United States stays exactly the same and life other than this small exception to our morning’s and mass amounts of Kanye West Albums Produced by a plethora of obscure characters nothing changes. Our Polices as a nation stay the same, nothing changes about our borders, economy, covid regulations stay the same; And life as you know it is normal. God Bless President West and God Bless The United States of America.
