If anyone has any ideas on how to get rid of troublesome squirrels without the local police being called, surrounding your home, waiving their guns, and putting a nearby school on lock-down, a man in Florida is all ears. The dude in the video below said he was outside with his BB gun, trying to shoot some squirrels that were in his attic. The morning ended with him walking outside his home in a towel, surrounded by police. His mother — face cream and all — also made an appearance.
The amount of negative publicity currently surrounding airlines is almost laughable at this point. But comedian Brent Pella really brings it home with his latest bit — one he claims is a true story after flying Spirit Airlines. If you’re unfamiliar with Spirit, Pella calls them the ‘Motel 6 of the sky.’ They’re relatively cheap. But you also get what you pay for. Therefore I would add the airline is more like the Motel 6 managed by Cousin Eddie. Ineptitude and empty promises are kinda their jam.
I promise you will never be more thrilled to hear a sales pitch on a 1966 Country Squire station wagon. Was it too much booze? A rebellion against ‘the man?’ A simple parody meant for friends? Whichever the case, Chick Lambert is the most epic yet un-heralded pitch-man in the history of car commercials. And he’s trending again on Reddit. Lambert was a spokesman for ‘Ralph Williams’ car dealerships in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1960s.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
