“Joe” is not your typical homeless guy on the streets of NYC. Sure, he sleeps on cardboard outside and panhandles but he also says he charms women to take him to their homes or apartments three to four nights a week. 

Elite Daily took the time to chat with Joe certainly unearthed some interesting details.

CoverGirl's "official team makeup look" for the Ravens was Photoshopped to give the model a black eye. (via Twitter)

I’m a Ravens fan who never really paid attention to the NFL’s propaganda, though I did notice that prior to this Ray Rice fiasco, the league had been marketing heavily to women.

Women make up 45% of the NFL’s viewership and as a thank you, the league partnered with your favorite fashion mag, Vogue, to debut a NFL women’s apparel line. Four days later, TMZ released the video of Ray Rice knocking his wife (then, fiancée), Janay, unconscious and half-heartedly dragging her out of the elevator.

The NFL in February suspended the former Ravens running back for two games surrounding inconclusive video of Rice dragging Janay out of the elevator. After the extended video was released, Rice was suspended indefinitely from the NFL, dropped from the Ravens, kicked off of Madden videogames, and his jersey taken out of sports shops around the country.

Urban Outfitters found themselves caught in another clothing controversy in the form of this red-splattered, $129 “vintage” Kent State sweatshirt. (via Twitter)

In January, Urban Outfitters, a hipster-style retailer owned by Philly company URBN, came under fire for a shirt with the word “depression” printed all over it. The top, designed by a brand called Depression, was subsequently pulled. 

In 2010, a top that said “Eat Less,” thought to encourage eating disorders, prompted actress Sophia Bush to boycott the store.

And who can forget the infamous “Ghettopoly” board game — a cheap play on the classic game Monopoly with "ghetto" elements like “Hustle” playing cards and a central image of a man holding a gun and a bottle of alcohol. Needless to say, that rousing rendition didn’t go over to well with many Americans.

Elders react to "Fifty Shades of Grey" trailer. (screenshot via YouTube)

If you thought the "Fifty Shades of Grey" trailer was risqué, can you imagine what your grandparents would think of it? A group of elders got their first look at the steamy trailer and of course, they had their suspicions.

From watching the trailer, to citing some lines from the movie, the reactions and opinions are priceless.

There’s certainly a mixture of thoughts on whether to see the movie when it comes out, but a number of the women admit they are into the storyline.

The rise of Pottstown's Noah Ritter, aka the 'Apparently Kid,' continued yesterday with his appearance on Ellen after giving an adorable interview at the Wayne County Fair last month. But now young Noah has cashed in. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the newest spokesperson for Seacaucus, New Jersey based pet food brand, Freshpet. 

Marketing to health-conscious pet owners, Freshpet nabbed Ritter for the above commercial and more or less just let him roll. And, with Noah being Noah, there are again several things to take away from his stream-of-thought-style presentation: 

  • Barney and Ed were once best dog friends, but one of them didn't like any of the pet food he got because it made his "farts stink all day and night."
  • Touching your toes is difficult.
  • He likes cats—no, wait—dogs better because they like to lick your face.
  • Keep your dog's food in the fridge so it will be "as fresh as a turkey on Thanksgiving."
  • His favorite dinosaur is not a bird, because birds exist already.

Not bad for a first commercial—but, then, the kid is a natural. Check out the behind the scenes footage below:

Y’all know Billy Eichner? He was the funniest part of the recent Emmy Awards broadcast. He’s the guy who runs through Manhattan like a madman, waving a microphone and asking people insane pop culture questions. If you haven’t seen him, check out his show Billy on the Street, on the Fuse channel. You can thank us later.

Last night, to the absolute delight of David Letterman, he showed up on Dave’s couch to play a crazy game called ‘Celebrity child or Kentucky Derby winner?’ The title pretty much says it all. Billy reads out names like Bluebell Madonna and Pilot Inspektor and Dave has to guess if they belong to an actor’s kid or a horse.

Dave shows a strange attraction to being yelled at. Make of that what you will.

Apparently a lot of people can’t watch daytime TV because apparently they have jobs or school or other responsibilities. So we’re bringing you a clip from Thursday’s Ellen Degeneres Show (seen locally at 3 p.m. on NBC10) in which she welcomes 5-year-old Noah Ritter, the hopelessly cute internet sensation from Pottstown whose TV interview apparently became pretty popular.

As you’ll see in the clip, Noah is soooo over the word apparently. That’s so August.

Having trouble seeing the video? Click here.

Mike Tyson lost it during an interview in Toronto.

Not that the ex-heavyweight champ threw any physical punches or even got that animated.

But something snapped when an interviewer brought up Tyson's 1992 rape conviction.
