Tiny Origami Figures Strain Your Eyes

Imagine having to look at one of these creations as they sit on your fingertip. That’s right, fingertip. The picture below isn’t depicting a giant person with an origami sculpture on their giant fingertip. It’s an almost beyond minuscule work of art the eye would strain to see.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Holds Up Fastfood Joint

Not Pizza Hut though as a lot of people are speculating. In these trying times, all sorts of nefarious deeds are being perpetrated by unlikely characters be they ninjas attacking an Apple store or this latest travesty.

The scene of the crime was a Wendy’s branch in Rib Mountain, Wisconsin where a large man in a mask help up the cashier at gunpoint.
