• The so-called “Red Bull Killer” was found not guilty of murdering his father, owing to reasons of insanity, and too much of the energy drink. Red Bull gives you murder defense! [WTSP]

• After community objections, McDonald’s issued a mea culpa and pulled ads on NYC subways that promised the chain’s iced coffee would keep people awake so they didn’t end up in Far Rockaway. Coney Island definitely would have been a better target. [NYDN]

• Take a look at what must be the world’s scariest ice cream truck and see if it doesn’t give you chills. [Imgur via Reddit]

• T.G.I.Friday’s is rolling out a Facebook app called Buy Your Friend a Beer, which lets people gift e-coupons for drinks, valid at any of the chain’s restaurants. Or you could just take your friend to an actual bar and buy them a drink there. [USAT]
