Do you have 'bad blood' or 'good blood?' This Taylor Swift parody video wants you to find out.

Kevin McDevitt had bad blood.

He was diagnosed with aplastic anemia and paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria, two different rare blood diseases.

When Taylor Swift released her music video for her song "Bad Blood," Kevin and his wife saw an opportunity for a parody video, and, well, they took it.


What Kevin needed was good blood.

The kind of good blood that comes from a bone marrow match. Which is what the couple's music video is all about.

Kevin was one of the lucky 30% of people to find a bone marrow donor within his family.

His sister was a bone marrow match. But 70% of people needing a bone marrow transplant must turn to organizations like the National Marrow Donor Program to find a match.

It's been six months since Kevin's bone marrow transplant, and he's doing well (so well, in fact, that he planned to run in the Be the Match run/walk Sept. 19, 2015, in New York City).

The McDevitts' goal is to spread awareness about the bone marrow registry.

Swift's song and video for "Bad Blood," which has the refrain "Baby, now we got bad blood," got the couple thinking about the life-saving "good blood" Kevin received.

They enlisted the help of other aplastic anemia patients who've received marrow transplants to appear alongside them in the video, and they hope that the video's blend of comedy, music, and laughter will help spread awareness about the bone marrow registry.

Because, baby, no one wants bad blood.

Thanks, bone marrow registry!

Brittany Kinley, a mother from Mansfield, Texas, had a hilarious mom fail her and she's chalking it up to being just another crazy thing that happened in 2020.

When Kinley filled out the order form for her son Mason's kindergarten class pictures, there was an option to have his name engraved into the photos. But Kinley wasn't interested in having her son's name on the photos so she wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" on the box.

Well, it appears as though she should have left the box blank because the computer or incredibly literal human that designed the photographs wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" where mason's name should be.

Funny how a 'new' male problem is a very old problem for women. Amy Poehler explains.

Not many people are brave enough to talk back to the guy who co-created "Chappelle's Show" when he says something kinda clueless. But not many people are Amy Poehler.

Men struggle to comprehend the pressures women feel. The same is true of women!

Gah! We'll never get along.

This conversation between comedian Neal Brennan and Amy Poehler is a pretty good example of how hard it can be to figure life out sometimes.

Neal, the genius who co-created "Chappelle's Show," sat down with Amy for his show "The Approval Matrix." The topic? WHAT are men supposed to be now? Cool? Adorkable? Both? Neither?

In December 2018, The Utah Department of Transportation opened the largest wildlife overpass in the state, spanning 320 by 50 feet across all six lanes of Interstate 80.

Its construction was intended to make traveling through the I-80 corridor in Summit County safer for motorists and the local wildlife.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that there were over 100 animal incidents on the interstate since 2016, giving the stretch of highway the unfortunate nickname of "Slaughter Row."
