From the New York Times:

A Russian beverage company said on Thursday that it was acquiring the Pabst Brewing Company, which makes the Pabst Blue Ribbon beer popular with barflies and hipsters alike and other brands like Colt 45 and Old Milwaukee.

The company did not disclose terms of the transaction, but people briefed on the matter said the price was more than $700 million in cash.

The buyer is Oasis Beverages, a Russian brewer and beverages distributor. Backing Oasis is TSG Consumer Partners, an American private equity firm focused on consumer goods, which will take a minority stake.

George Zimmerman claimed self-defense when he shot and killed a young, unarmed man named Trayvon Martin in 2012. He was acquitted of all charges and now he's selling the gun as "a piece of American history".  

Maybe his confederate flag business isn't doing so well? 

Bidding starts at $5,000 and he is literally planning to use some of the proceeds to fight Black Lives Matter activists, or as he put it according to the video "fight [Black Lives Matter] violence against law enforcement officers".

Walmart not only has falling prices, it’s also got strange men falling out of the ceiling.

A shoplifter was apprehended by security at a store in Mobile, Alabama last Wednesday after trying to walk away with a debit card, some shoes, a hat, a watch and some underwear.

They locked him up in the security office, but he mysteriously disappeared.

“He had climbed on a desk, jumped into the ceiling, then tried to escape,” said a witness named Brannan Lynn, who recorded the whole thing on his phone.

The suspect made his way to the entryway of the store where he then kicked he way through, dangling for a few minutes before hopping down to the ground.

He eventually ran into the parking lot and drove away in his car.

You can check out some more raw footage of the daring escape on LiveLeak.

There’s a new star of the 2016 presidential election, and she only stands 6 inches tall.

Instagram users @hellohunter and @lil_brunch  are the geniuses behind the Instagram account lil.hillary, a parody feed that features a Hillary Clinton action figure on the campaign trail.

“[We] noticed Hillary doesn’t have an Instagram account for her campaign and decided it was our duty to help her out,” hellohunterr wrote on Instagram.

Just like the actual candidate, Lil’ Hillary is determined to be elected President of the United States. But she keeps getting caught in ~crazy~ situations.

Like taking public transportation…

 

Stopping at her favorite Chipotle…

 

Dealing with the pesky press…

 

Taunting the Republican competition…


And unwinding after a long day with an adult beverage.

 

The good news is, there are enough tiny Hillarys to go around! You can own your very own miniature Clinton for $14.99.

But after taking a scroll through this Instagram feed, one thing is for certain: there can only be one Lil’ Hillary.
