Meet Patty, The World’s Most Artistic Donkey

This adorable pot-bellied donkey is named Patty. Seven years ago, she was rescued from a UK auction in emaciated condition and moved to HorseWorld, an equine rehab center where she slowly but surely regained her health–along with a gregarious personality. One day, Patty watched her handler Vicky Greenslade work on a painting with such rapt attention that Greenslade handed her a paintbrush. Three weeks later, Patty had her own easel and was churning out colorful abstract paintings, stroke-by-stroke. “Patty is a huge show-off, she loves people watching her paint,” says Greenslade. “We can’t ask her to do too many demonstrations in a week though, or she gets bored, throws the paintbrush down and walks off–what a drama queen!” Patty’s paintings are available for sale in a busy gallery in Bristol, where they routinely fetch over $150. The best part? All of the proceeds benefit HorseWorld’s efforts to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome mistreated horses. Not only does Patty look amazing in a beret, she’s changing the world, one brush stroke at a time. [Daily Mail]

This Bottle Of Nail Polish Costs $250,000 And I Don’t Want To Live On This Planet Anymore

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the most expensive nail polish in the world: Azature’s Black Diamond. The shimmery black formula contains 267 carats of crushed diamonds, and–yep, you read the headline correctly–one bottle will cost you $250,000. The other day I spent $12 on a bottle of nail polish and felt a little guilty and self-indulgent, so I don’t even know how to fully comprehend the fact that this exists, and that (presumably) someone is going to buy it. I mean, can you imagine? Every time you chipped your manicure on your keyboard, you’d be losing, like, a thousand dollars. Stressful. Apparently Azature is deigning to sell a department store version for $25, but I think I’ll just DIY my own by shredding up some dollar bills, mixing them into a bottle of Wet N’ Wild, and then crying myself to sleep.

If you don’t like Nutella (is that even possible?), this picture is probably grossing you out on so many levels. But if you love Nutella (as you should, because it’s fucking delicious), you probably reacted to this picture the same way I did: “Daaaaaammn! Why didn’t I think of that?” [That's Nerdalicious]

Woman Goes Topless In New York City In The Name Of Freedom

When most people see Moira Johnston walking through the streets of New York, they probably aren’t thinking “freedom fighter,” they’re thinking, “That woman’s topless.”

But to Johnston, politics and breasts go hand in hand — although, truth be told, one is more preferable to actually hold.

The 29-year-old topless dancer from Philadelphia may be baring her breasts for money at night, but during daylight hours, she lets people view them free of charge in order to make a point about true equality.

“I want women to know their rights and to give them the courage to go topless too,” she told The Daily Beast. “It’s not that I want everyone to take off their shirt, but I’m supporting a woman’s choice to do it and think every woman should do it on her own terms.” Read more …
