We love beards as much as the next woman — actually, perhaps slightly more than her — so imagine our delight when we stumbled across pictures of bearded men with facial hair shaped like animals.
Yes, there was hysteria. Find more photos on Huffington Post…
This is a clothing label produced by a Japanese brand called, fittingly, Fatyo, which has opted to forgo the traditional sizing model of small, medium, large, and extra-large, and instead label clothing with “twitch,” “skinny,” “fat,” and “jumbo.” Well, these terms are definitely … descriptive, if not particularly flattering. Would you ever buy a piece of clothing that had the word “fat” on the label? What about “twitch”? Maybe we should just stick to numbers? Those work pretty well. [UPI]
At only four months old, little Aubrey may be the youngest person to ever walk down the aisle. Err, dragged down the aisle, I mean, as Aubrey is attached to her mother’s wedding gown. Shona Carter-Brooks is under fire after posting this photo from her big day on Facebook, which clearly shows her newborn daughter strapped to her Vera Wang wedding dress. Carter-Brooks defended her choice to add Aubrey as a piece of flair to the train of her dress, saying was “awake and well-secured” and that she was “covered by Christ.” Honestly, this is totally insane, but so long as the baby was safe, who the hell am I to judge a bride’s wedding dress alterations?

Meet Ladarius Sapho. Tomorrow, the 18-year-old is graduating from Proviso East High School in Maywood, Illinois, just outside of Chicago, with the best grades in his class. Having achieved a weighted grade-point average of 4.135 thanks to kicking ass in his honors classes, Sapho should be a shoe-in for Valedictorian and had even prepared his speech for the big day. But early last week, school Principal Tony Valente called Sapho and the expected Salutatorian (who has the second best grades in the class) into his office to deliver a crushing blow — neither was eligible for the titles after all, because they had both started at the school as sophomores after moving into the district. Allegedly, there’s a policy that requires that valedictorians/salutatorians must have attended the school for at least seven semesters to receive the honors.
“I was gonna be number one, valedictorian of 2014. I was going to be giving the speech at graduation,” said Sapho in an interview with FOX 32 Chicago. “You’re gonna tell me just two weeks before graduation? I had a speech ready, I was ready to give this speech, practicing and he tells me I can’t be number one.” Keep reading »
After spending the day wandering around a tourist-packed zoo, I can understand why you might be in need of a massage. So it’s cool that visitors to the Philippines Cebu City Zoo are entitled to a free massage as part of their entry fee. Too bad that massage is given by four giant — and deadly! — Burmese pythons.
NOPE. NOPE. NOPE. Keep reading »
Love is a complicated thing. The most complicated thing, even. Montagues fall in love with Capulets. Americans fall in love with Australians. And no matter how morally depraved and heinous his crimes, there always seems to be some woman who will marry a convicted murderer. Take Leydi Figueroa Uceda, a Peruvian woman who has been engaged to Joran van der Sloot, the Dutch man who allegedly killed teenager Natalee Holloway in Aruba in 2005, since last year. Not only are these two engaged, but Uceda is now five months’ pregnant with their child. Keep reading »
