DWI Be Damned

I'll Drive My

Barbie Jeep

9/3/2015 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0903_girl_drives_barbie-jeep-twitter_SUBTara Monroe's got a new mode of transportation after getting her license taken away -- a pink Barbie Jeep named "Charlene."

The 20-year-old Texas State student had her license suspended following a DWI arrest for refusing to take a breathalyzer while leaving a Waka Flocka Flame concert.

She told mySA.com her reasoning for the Barbie ride instead of a bike -- “Riding a bike around campus sucks.” 

One thing's for sure, a bike would be a whole lot quicker than the Barbie mobile since it only goes 5 mph ... but it definitely wouldn't give her all the attention she clearly craves. Life in plastic, it's fantastic!

Joey Chestnut

I Crapped the Bed

... With a Hot Chick

9/3/2015 12:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joey Chestnut's losing streak goes way beyond competitive eating ... 'cause the ex-champ is revealing a major defeat he suffered in the bedroom -- and it's pretty nasty.

Joey joined #DateFails, a podcast co-hosted by comedians Stephen Kramer Glickman and Kate Quigley last week ... and to stay true to the name of the show, he let loose with a tale about about a 2009 hookup with a chick he met at a party -- hours after he was in a chili burrito competition. 

You gotta hear the story, but fair warning ... it ends with him paying $600 for a cleanup crew in the woman's bedroom. 

46 burritos. Not exactly an aphrodisiac.

Cecil The Lion

Apple Rejects App

Targeting Hunters as Kill

9/3/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0902-main-cecil-revenge-cecilrevenge-01Apple will not allow its users to turn guns on hunters, turning them into human prey.

A new app called "Cecil's Revenge" turns the tables making lions, giraffes, elephants and other wildlife the hunters, aiming their weapons at poachers.

The game is loosely based on the game "Asteroids," but Cecil and his buddies are now the shuttle and hunters and poachers are the asteroids.

The creators of the app tell TMZ ... in its rejection, Apple cited its rule that enemies in games cannot target a specific race, culture, real government or any other real enemy. Apple believes hunters and poachers are part of a specific culture. 

0902-sub-cecil-revenge-cecilrevenge-01An Apple rep tells TMZ the app was 86'd because the company will not sanction games based on "real events." 

"Cecil's Revenge" does have a home ... Google has approved the app, which is now available free of charge.

This little tyke knows exactly how to get what he wants ... all he has to do is turn on the waterworks and mommy starts reading again.

This video is too cute for words.

Players Can't Catch Him

The El Paso Chihuahuas -- a Triple-A baseball team -- had a great idea to get fans amped up for the start of their game ... have a race with a bunch of Dachshunds (wiener dogs).

The Wienerschnitzel weenie dog race went smoothly in the beginning ... then all hell broke loose when one pup broke free from the pack and turned the field into his own personal playground.

Get ready to see the most exciting -- and funny -- thing to ever happen on a Minor League field.

7-Year-Old Cancer Patient

Duet With Favorite Singer

Rachel Platten

9/1/2015 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

7-year-old Jeremiah Succar is a huge fan of Rachel Platten ... and especially her hit song -- "Fight Song," which has become a driving force for him in the hospital.

His father explained, "he used to sing it when he got a lot of headaches, but now he sings it in the morning, before bed and during shots he has to get.”

Jeremiah has stage-four atypical rhabdoid teratoid -- a fast growing brain and spinal cord tumor.

Platten went to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to surprise Jeremiah after finding out he was a fan on social media ... but he was the one that surprised her when he sang the song along with her.

Fight on Jeremiah ... fight on.

This droopy faced pooch just wanted his big floppy ears to catch some breeze while going on a ride ... too bad for him, his little paws weren't strong enough to hold down the window.
