As I’m sure you’re aware, the entire world is addicted to Pokemon Go. Literally, more people have it on their phone than Tinder (if that tells you anything).

Also, girls are piling hundreds of layers of nail polish on their fingernails and sharing their work on social media as part of the #PolishMountain Challenge. Check it all out on Weird This Week, then catch up on all the other strange stories happening around the world…after the jump!

Check out the latest episode of Weird This Week after the jump, plus catch up on other weird stories you may have missed!

But hold up guys- because the ‘80s rapper himself has now weighed in on the issue. Click through to see what Sir Mix-a-Lot has to say about it all!
