Naked chef feeds 'hungry' followers
An American YouTuber has developed a huge fan base by posting videos of herself cooking nude to spread 'sexy comedic positivity'
A Texan woman, Ruby Day, has been whipping up a frenzy by posting racy, kitchen content online. Day has cooked up a storm on YouTube, with some of her recipe tutorials raking in as many as 9 lakh views.
Most of her Cooking Naked TV videos feature her wearing nothing, but an itsy-bitsy apron or a two-piece bikini, and baking desserts like pumpkin muffins and peach pie, or cooking main course meals like steak and salmon.

Although her channel has been demonetised by YouTube because of the nature of its content, dedicated followers support her by financially contributing to her Patreon page, in return for exclusive images, videos, and recipes of the hot cook.
The amateur chef uses strategically placed emojis to cover her body when her apron slips. Her cooking videos aren't that long—most of them last two minutes on an average. However, she certainly seems to have found an audience for her meals.

A cheeky viewer commented, saying: "I watched the whole video, and I don't even cook." Speaking to Daily Star, she said that the purpose behind her page was to spread "sexy comedic positivity." She added, "It's a great motivation for people to cook. A majority of my patrons come for the healthy recipes and stay for the laughs. I love creating cooking videos; they are so much fun with good food, too."

A quirky Facebook group has its members roleplaying as ants in a colony
As social distancing forces people to stay away from each other, a Facebook group has come up with a novel solution for its members to feel connected during the Coronavirus lockdown. The group was created in June 2019 by Tyrese Childs, and its members pretend to be ants in an ant colony. Its membership has skyrocketed to 18 lakh since March. The group does exactly what it claims: members take on the role of an ant, following the instructions of their colony's queen. She ordered her army to "DIG" in a post. This was followed by 13,000 comments, echoing her command—to "DIG."
The private group asks potential members to fill out a survey before they are added to the group. One also needs to have watched the 1988 film A Bug's Life, an animated film depicting the story of an ant with big dreams. "We have so many user requests and pending posts that this has become a job for me. I think people are searching for something to do right now. You can only scroll so much on social media," said Childs in an interview with NBC news.
