Oh dear. This poor little boy got a rather nasty surprise after accidentally inhaling a whistle from a party horn.  A video the 8-year-old unnamed boy from San Miguel de Tucuman in Argentina was posted by his doctor. It shows him honking every time he breaths in.  Doctor Santiago Gomez Zuviría posted the video to raise awareness about toy safety and the risks children are exposed to.  In the video, the poor little guy looks absolutely exasperated from the honking sound which he emits every time he breathes in. Who can blame him?  Thankfully, the whistle was safely removed and […]

Mandy Stantic was visiting a garbage dump in Northern Manitoba last spring when she came upon a black bear sitting on a discarded sofa. Stantic, whose photos just recently went viral, had specifically driven to the dump with her daughter to see the dump (god bless Canadian road trips) when she discovered the bear just lounging.

Nope, this isn’t a debunk-able Disney moment—there are screenshots to prove it.  SEE ALSO: Netflix’s prices are insanely low—enjoy it while you can

But she does have a cat.  Here’s hoping Ramona and her feline friend become NPR mainstays in the coming weeks. ——- Original story: Accidentally posting personal stuff onto a work page is every social media manager’s worst nightmare. This time, after the last few days, it came as a moment of relief. On Monday, an NPR staffer’s accidental Facebook post went viral, amassing more than 20,000 reactions […]

Sometimes, it takes the cast of Silicon Valley to poke fun at the real world Silicon Valley. While the show masterfully ribs its own version of tech industry, a new cut from Funny or Die mashed scenes from Silicon Valley with Apple’s iPhone keynote to reveal the ridiculousness that is the IRL iPhone X.  Sure, the iPhone X is an impressive phone (it better be with that price tag), but the way Apple fans praise anything the company does is something we should all call out and laugh at. While cool, Animoji is not the breakthrough technology we need (or […]
