Doritos has made a batch of massive Doritos — 18 times larger than the average Dorito, to be exact. The company said it’s an “awesome way to experience Doritos snacks.” Because the giant “Jurassic Dorito” was made in honor of the new Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom movie, the chip naturally comes in a giant dino egg. Each side is roughly 11 inches. Just 100 were made and each comes with a “Certificate of Authenticity.”

Stephen Wheeles with the Versailles district in Southeast Indiana tweeted Saturday about pulling over a driver for going too slow. He said the “I stopped this vehicle today for a left lane violation on I-65. The driver had approximately 20 cars slowed behind her because she would not move back to the right lane. Again...if there are vehicles behind you, you must move to the right lane to allow them to pass.” Twitter users responded to the tweet by begging for him to do the same in places like across the country. "Can you transfer to Florida and patrol?" one user responded. When user @TheViewfrom111 wrote "We can sure could use you in Tennessee," Wheeles responded by saying that was just outside his jurisdiction: "I love Tennessee but unfortunately my enforcement powers stop at the Ohio River...Sorry!!" The original tweet has more than 46,000 likes and has been retweeted more than 15,000 times.
