Apparently, He Was A Hit

Nothing brings joy to our hearts and barren wombs like “Apparently Kid”! And his appearance on “Ellen” yesterday did not disappoint. Noah Ritter — the five-year-old boy whose interview with a local newscaster went viral for his strong opinions about carnival rides and adorable overuse of the word “apparently” — took some time out from kindergarten to visit Ellen DeGeneres.  Noah filled her in on his new favorite word and the perils of walking to the bus stop. Someone get this kid an agent! [YouTube]

This Mom Dressed Her Sons Like Celebrities And It’s Everything

This Mom Dressed Her Sons As Celebrities And It's Everything

Is your day feeling particularly slow and sleepy? Get ready for all that to change, with these adorable baby pictures that will have your ovaries squee-ing. What could be better than smoking hot male models posing for your pleasure? Well, these nuggets definitely compete. Their mom started photographing them after a friend showed her pictures of “fashion kids” on Instagram. When she (like the rest of us) realized how ridiculous it is for tiny humans to wear outfits that cost more than a college degree, she decided to show parents how to create high fashion looks without spending beaucoup bucks.

This Little Girl Cuddling With A Tibetan Mastiff Is Living My Wildest Dream

A Real-Life Stuffed Animal

Simba the Tibetan Mastiff is about as low-key as dogs get. Weiwei, his little human friend, gets to play with, sing to, and climb all over Simba to her heart’s content, and I’m profoundly jealous. [BoingBoing]

Adorable Children Try Vegemite For The First Time, Are Not Impressed

"I Recommend Nobody Ever Buys It Again"

“Vegemite is a dark brown Australian food paste made from leftover brewers’ yeast extract with various vegetable and spice additives,” begins the Wikipedia page for noxious spreadable Vegemite. If you haven’t had the pleasure, Vegemite tastes extremely salty, is the color of dark poop, and has the consistency of slightly melted peanut butter.  You can spread Vegemite on toast or crackers, or even put in a sandwich if there is literally nothing else in your cupboards that you could put in a sandwich, including multivitamins. So naturally, giving Vegemite to young children without much of a personal filter is highly entertaining. [Laughing Squid]

D&D Game Goes Co-Ed

“It’s a good thing that boys are challenged the way they’re taught their exclusive activity is open only to them.” These are the words of a 25-year-old man named Sam. He may as well be speaking about any male-dominated space — ground combat, restaurant kitchens, construction work — but Sam was referring to one space in particular: Dungeons & Dragons games. The stereotype of the typical D&D gamer is man or a boy, in particular one who is socially awkward, skinny, and sporting glasses. As a result, role-playing games are not traditionally acknowledged as something women and girls do (although they totally do). In this short documentary by Meredith Jacobson, four middle-school-aged boys and four middle-school-aged girls play D&D together for the first time, while Sam the Dungeon Master oversees the co-ed experiment. It might just inspire you to pick up some polyhedral dice yourself! [Vimeo via The Mary Sue]
