Shirley Temples are the "We're getting crazy tonight!" drink of our youths.

With an overload of sugar and containing several pungent flavors as well as a neon red hue, we knew our night was about to go down with a Shirley Temple.

If only we'd had a service to rate our Shirley Temples back in the day....


Thankfully kids of today will be afforded that service and will never know the same hardship we did.

Meet six-year-old Kelly from Connecticut—your Shirley Temple King.

Kelly, besides being adorable, is a tough Shirley Temple critic.

His criteria include grenadine to ginger ale ratios and the amount of present maraschino cherries.

Each video is tagged with a number of cherries that rates the Shirley Temple out of ten.

Kelly's instagram picked up steam after a tweet featuring his review of a Shirley Temple at Longhorn Steakhouse went viral.

How could people not immediately start adoring this Shirley Temple treasure?



Longhorn Steakhouse scored poorly due to their lack of cherries.

But promised to make it up to the Shirley Temple King.

Whilst people continued to become fans of Kelly.





Kelly is most certainly not easily impressed.

The highest rated Shirley Temple on his channel was the one he made himself.

Take note purveyors of Shirley Temples!





According to the king, the ideal Shirley Temple contains "three to four ice cubes, glass cup, a whole can of ginger ale, just enough grenadine, three cherries and an extra-long straw."

After receiving over 123K followers in under 24 hours, he was blown away.

"Epic reviews to come," promises the King.

We are all sitting by our computers waiting.

Being woken up suddenly is not very good for our health.

Especially for the elderly, it's not something to make a habit of. Sleep interruption can increase blood pressure, cause a worsened self image, and cause a day filled with irritation and confusion.

No one wants to be woken up, but there are definitely some reasons for being woken up that are worse than your alarm clock.

We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
