You’ve surely heard of cat cafes, where patrons can have a coffee and a bagel while snuggling a furry kitty, but a new kind of animal dining experience may be sweeping the globe soon, one that I’m WAY more excited about: goat cafes. The trend is starting, as so many weird/wonderful dining trends do, in Japan, where Sakuragaoka Cafe has been letting patrons mingle with their two in-house goats for the past few years. The goats have been a huge hit with customers, who come in droves to pet them and bring them treats. Hear that, American restaurateurs? Goat cafes are a thriving business! Let’s make them happen here ASAP, yeah? Even if other people are grossed out by the idea of eating alongside barnyard animals, I will single-handedly keep the venture afloat. Table for 12, please! (That would be me and 11 goats, obvi.) [Modern Farmer]
Finn the ragdoll cat really missed his human, Nick, while he was away for a drill. Even before he walks through the door, Finn (and his fellow kitty Boo, who we hear off-camera) knows he’s coming and can’t contain his excitement. Watching Finn leap into Nick’s arms is all the proof I need that cats, for all the bad rap they get, are just as sweet as any other pet! [Tastefully Offensive]
I have a distinct memory of being 12 years old and seeing one of my closest girl friends go off to huddle with another girl at school. “What were you talking about?” I asked her later. “Oh, we both just got our periods so….” she explained, her voice trailing off in such a way that indicated that I just couldn’t understand. I was so jealous, dying to be part of their special menstrual club. Of course, when my period finally arrived for the first time a few months later, I was horrified and burst into tears. Ahhh, hormones! This ad for Hello Flo — makers of menstrual care packages — does such a perfect job capturing the confusion of puberty, where all you want is your period … until you finally get it, that is.

Every actor gets their start somewhere. For Matt McGorry, who plays lovebird correctional officer John Bennett on “Orange Is The New Black,” his start was as an axe-wielding He-Man hero in a hilarious student film.
While at Emerson College, McGorry donned a Fabio wig to appear as Gorm in a six-minute-short called “Gizor And Gorm.” It’s got “fertility maidens” fucking a ginger dude tied to a rock. It’s got lots of fake blood. And most importantly, it’s got Matt McGorry running around in the woods without his shirt off.
