Additionally, he is writing a book, to document his progress and show others how being physically locked in a cage can be beneficial, calling it “Into the Cage: Freeing Yourself Within”.

He calls the process a “self-improvement program”, as he essentially lives like a pet hamster, and has an assistant help him with meals and exercise.

He later puts on oven mitts, and explains his goal is to “restrain myself from myself”, because he is “hopelessly addicted to food, hopelessly addicted to sugar.”

And it’s not just unhealthy food and drink, as he claims he “would put Bob Marley to shame” with some of his other vices.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
