DID YA KNOW!? Brought to you by

A 9-year-old New Zealand boy unearthed a giant 3-foot earthworm in his backyard. Footage of the colossal nightcrawler is blowing up on Facebook. Barnaby Domigan said: “I thought it was massive, and amazing, and a little bit disgusting.” The Kiwi kid had exhumed the “Dune”-esque dirt digger by a stream at the bottom of the family’s garden in Christchurch. Facebook pics show the youngster using a stick to tote the supersized soil snacker, which is so big it looks photoshopped. And while his mom thought the 3-foot worm was “the stuff of nightmares,” Barnaby thought it was “wonderful.” After snapping a pic of the titanic tunneler, he released the earthworm he had named “Jim” back into the garden.

Breast implants and butt lifts may be a recession-proof business, according to a new survey by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The first-of-its-kind poll reveals 3 in 4 cosmetic surgeons are seeing booming business as people move past the coronavirus pandemic. The survey also found that nearly 30% percent of cosmetic surgeons say their business has actually doubled after COVID, with women between 31-45 the most likely patients to seek breast implants, liposuction, and tummy tucks. Why now? For many, COVID shutdowns allowed people to work from home — giving them a chance to save up more money, instead of dining out or spending on the daily commute.
