An Oklahoma woman was allegedly kicked out of a church in Oklahoma City after she brought cilantro to a church event and members mistook the herb for marijuana. Ashley, who posts on TikTok as @alimamii23, posted a two-minute video to the social media site documenting the unfortunate and uncomfortable altercation between members of Redemption United Methodist Church and Ashley herself. In the clip, which has nearly five million views, members accuse Ashley of “bringing drugs” into the congregation and refuse to listen as she explains that it’s cilantro for her menudo, a popular Mexican soup.
This was a situation that could have easily been solved. In the video, Ashley tried to explain herself to church members, saying: “That’s cilantro, that’s for the food. That’s for the menudo. I promise you. Smell it, I promise you. I’m not like that, that’s why I’m so mad.” She also reminded them that she regularly attends the church and would never have brought drugs into the building – she simply wanted some more flavor in her soup.
The pastor didn’t seem to care about Ashley at all. Despite seeing that a member of his congregation was upset and being ganged up on, he simply told her to “chill” so he could finish his sermon. What a loving guy, eh? I’m sure Christ would have approved of that behavior.
Commenters flooded Ashley’s video with support. One person wrote: “THE FACT THEY CAN’T RECOGNIZE SEASONINGS,” while another added: “This pastor and his ‘chill chill chill’ CAN GO ALL THE WAY TO HELL.” A separate commenter remarked that this seemed blatantly racist, saying: “The way they’re racially profiling yall is crazy they didn’t even try to smell the food like.”
A second video showed the church members had no intention of backing down. In a second video, Ashley can be seen returning to the church to get her confiscated food but things didn’t go quite to plan. “Threatened to call the police just because I asked for the garnish back. I was so happy to go to church and then this happens to us! #Fyp #okc #church,” she captioned the second video.
The church later issued a statement claiming their response was totally innocent and it was Ashley who should have known better than to bring food, despite the fact that it was previously allowed. “Redemption Mission provides faith-based services for inmates through an arrangement with the Oklahoma Department of Corrections (DOC) and has been hosting services since 1994. Family members, visitors and guests are welcome to attend the services and were previously allowed to bring food to be consumed on-site, but could not give food items to inmates to take back to correctional facilities. On November 12, 2021, the DOC requested a change in this practice so that no food items of any sort would be allowed to be brought into the church due to an influx of contraband that had been coming into the correctional facility—incidents of which have unfortunately occurred through people attending the service. The church provided a meal, and the policy change was announced during the service. Volunteers at Redemption, many of whom are former addicts, are badged volunteers trained by the DOC to look for particular ways in which contraband can be passed—including bringing in drugs with food, which has happened in the past. Maintaining a drug-free environment is vital for people who are in recovery, so these standards must be strictly enforced. Because Redemption is one of few ministries that allows for ministry with incarcerated persons outside the walls of correctional institutions, following policies is critical to being allowed to continue those ministries—ministries which not only help people to break the cycle of addiction, but allow families to spend time together. Redemption is a significantly diverse church that welcomes all and does not discriminate against any persons based on ethnicity or family of origin. Persons who are disruptive are asked to leave worship services. We want all persons to feel welcomed into our church, a part of which is maintaining safety standards for the inmates, the DOC-approved volunteers who transport the inmates, and the staff at Redemption Mission Penn Avenue. We are committed to fair and equal treatment of all and regret any misconceptions that may have occurred as a result of this incident,” they told Newsweek.

2 Las Vegas Women Stored Stolen Cash And Rolexes In Their Vaginas To Avoid Police
Two Las Vegas women have been charged with theft after they allegedly stole cash and watches and stored them inside their genitals. Nikki Grandel and Staycee Johnson are said to have met a man on the floor of the Caesars Palace casino and decided to go with him up to the victim’s hotel room, KVVU-TV reports. That’s when they attempted to clear him out.
They thought they were being slick. According to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, Grandel and Johnson went up to the hotel room with the man, who decided to take a bath. While he was in the bathroom, the women stole $6,500 in rolled-up cash from his duffel bag as well as a Rolex watch. The victim realized when he couldn’t find the items a little while later.
Police intercepted the women in the hotel lobby. Officers were waiting for them there, but not because the victim called police. It was actually Grandel herself who phoned them as the man initially didn’t want them to leave the room since he believed they stole his stuff.
Unfortunately, their hiding places weren’t very well thought-out. Officers noted that the roll of $6,500 “was found bulging out of Johnson’s pants” after it fell out of her vagina. Meanwhile, the Rolex watch was later discovered inside Grandel’s vagina via an X-ray. Both women denied theft.
Both women were charged with grand larceny. They were later released on bail pending an upcoming court appearance on February 1.
Man Claims COVID-19 Infection Made His Penis Shrink 1.5 Inches
A man in his thirties has claimed that contracting COVID-19 made him lose 1.5 inches off the length of his penis. The anonymous sufferer wrote into the How To Do It podcast this week to share his woes, saying that battling the illness left him with some unexpected and seriously undesirable side effects.
The man was pretty ill with the virus. Referring to himself only as “coming up short,” the man shared that he’s a “heterosexual male in [his] thirties” who got very sick with COVID-19 and was even hospitalized for the condition. “In July of last year, I contracted COVID and was very sick. When I got out of the hospital, I had some erectile dysfunction issues,” he revealed.
His erectile dysfunction was eventually solved, but that wasn’t the last of his problems. The man, who previously claimed that he was “above average” when it came to the size of his package, solved the ED issues but size is now a problem. “[The erectile dysfunction] gradually got better with some medical attention, but I seemed to be left with a lasting problem,” he shared. “Before I got sick [my penis] was above average. Not huge, but definitely bigger than normal. Now I’ve lost about an inch and a half and become decidedly less than average.”
Why would something like this happen? The man went on to say that a medical professional claimed his shrinking genitals came down to vascular damage from the virus. Worse yet, it’s not something that will likely ever repair itself and he’ll be stuck with his new size forever.
He knows it shouldn’t matter but it does. “It shouldn’t really matter,” he wrote. “But it has had a profound impact on my self-confidence and my abilities in bed. I know you can’t give me back my missing length and girth, but I was wondering if you could give me any advice on what to do now.” That sucks!
Man Accidentally Gets Senior Citizens High After Supplying Pot Brownies To Community Center
A man accidentally got a group of senior citizens high after he brought a batch of pot brownies to a community center card game where his mother was playing. A probable cause affidavit revealed that several calls were received regarding a “possible poisoning” of several people “at the Tabor Community Center earlier for a card game” in Tabor, South Dakota. As it turns out, they weren’t poisoned at all – just high.
Michael Koranda was the man responsible. He didn’t actually bring the brownies, his mother Irene Koranda did upon his offering. Turns out, she didn’t realize that they had THC in them. Michale had recently been to Colorado and brought back a bunch of “products with marijuana” and must have been inspired to get in the kitchen.
The investigation was pretty swift. “An investigation into the incident lead me to believe that the patients were all under the influence of THC from a batch of brownies that were brought to the Community Center by Irene Koranda,” Deputy Sheriff Joel Neuman reported. Irene told officers that Michael had “baked a pan of brownies and she took them to the Community Center card game” and she “willingly gave [the sheriff] the remainder of the brownies in a plastic container.”
Michael was very forthcoming about the mixup. Michael, an elementary school music teacher, told police that he’d used THC butter in the brownies that he’d brought back from Colorado. After baking them, he “went to bed and his mother unknowingly took the brownies to the card game.” An honest mistake!
Koranda was arrested and charged. He faces charges of possession of a controlled drug or substance, a felony that could carry up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. He’s currently free on $3,000 bond but is due back in court on January 25.
