Why Get a Guard Dog When a Guard Otter Will Do?

A recent video making the rounds of the internet focuses on one young otter playing defense for his female owner as his male owner playfully tries to tap the other human. While the video is under a minute in length, it more than does its job at amusing us with the otter’s ninja-like silence and focus in stopping the man from touching the woman, whose knees are pulled up in order to share space with the unnamed otter. While the otter occasionally delivers what cat-owners might refer to as a love-bite, it does so without so much as a hiss or a squeak.

The otter is an omnivorous mammal related to weasels, ferrets, badgers, polecats and even the wolverine. Their name is derived from the root word for “water,” likely referencing the affinity that these creatures have for living within watery regions. Gendered names for otters reference both canines and porcine terms; males are known as “boars” or “dogs” and females are known as “sows” or “bitches”-children are uniformly referred to as “pups.” Collective terms for a group of otters include a “bevy,” “family,” “lodge,” “romp,” and a “raft.”

While otters are mammals, their two most memorable features allude to their aquatic activities. Otters possess webbed digits and a seal-like sleekness that gives them superior aquadynamic movement. While the otter in the video often has its mouth open, likely in order to strike at the male owner with its teeth, most species of otter have sharp claws that they use to either tear apart food or soften it up. Different species of otter have different diets, mostly as a result of their environment-some species spend their whole time in the water and are content to feed on fish and invertebrates others will use rocks to crack open clams. One final quality of otters is that they seem to exhibit enough intelligence to create their own toys, playing with rocks or engineering personal water slides.

College Student’s Charity Pledge Goes Viral

19-year-old Danni Messina was trying to do a good deed when she posted a tweet on her Twitter account supporting St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and promising to donate money to the pediatric facility for each favorite and retweet. Messina assumed that 25 cents for each retweet and 50 cents for each favorite would result in her donating around $1000 to the hospital. With just over 600 followers, she didn’t realize how quickly her tweet would catch on. She first tweeted early in the morning on November 26, but soon discovered that she had vastly underestimated Twitter users. By the next afternoon, her tweet had been retweeted by thousands of people and received hundreds of likes. Messina realized that, according to her promise, she now owed St. Jude’s more than $40,000. The sum was much more than her original $1000 amount and completely beyond her means as a struggling college student at Washington State University.

Overwhelmed by the outpouring of support for her cause online, she quickly ended her Twitter fundraising campaign. When the final social media numbers were totaled, Messina found that her pledge would be around $200,000 if she stuck to her original parameters. However, despite her financial limitations, Messina wasn’t ready to throw in the towel. She launched a GoFundMe page online to help her fulfill her pledge. The online community responded with generosity, donating over $50,000 in five days. Messina says that she will donate the money to St. Jude’s along with $1000 of her own money.

Messina was inspired to tweet her pledge after she found out her friend was spending the Thanksgiving holiday with his grandmother at St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Moved by the plight of children who are forced to be in the hospital during the holidays, Messina decided to send the charitable tweet supporting St. Jude’s out to her followers. She never expected the pledge to gain so much attention, but her efforts have won her praise from patients at St. Jude’s and their families. Her donations will help defray the massive cost of running St. Jude’s. The hospital provides free healthcare, but daily operating costs amount to more than $2 million.

Giant Teddy Bear Becomes Internet Sensation

The creator of a giant teddy bear is not someone that you would expect to be a deadly serious person, but that is who Nikola Matic is. He is the creator of the company JoyFay which makes the ridiculously large teddy bear.

On Amazon, the teddy bear has gotten a 4.6 out of 5 star review average. As Geekwire.com explains though, it was the negative reviews that helped propel the bear to all of its fame and stardom on the Internet. A couple of people online gave negative reviews of the bear pointing out that its legs were disproportional compared to the rest of its body. Those reviews got picked up on the Internet for whatever reason, and now they are all that anyone can seem to talk about when it comes to this bear.

It seems that people cannot stop cracking up at just how funny this particular bear looks. Even while they are laughing though, they are continuing to buy the bear. They have loaded up the company with more and more orders for this particularly cuddly stuffed animal.

JoyFay was created when the founder saw that people tended to search for life-sized stuffed animals right around the Valentine’s Day holiday. He wanted to build a company that could meet that market demand right where it was. Therefore, his company began to produce this bear. What he did not expect was to have such high demand the whole year long because of some humourous negative Amazon reviews.

It is a $110 teddy bear, but that has not meant it hasn’t sold. As a matter of fact, the company has sold around 30,000 of them already. That far outpaced the expectations that even the founder of the company had for himself when he went out to create this one. The popularity of the bear was not exactly an accident, but it was certainly boosted by some negative reviews left on Amazon about the length of the bear’s legs.

Video Of Child Running With Knife Gets Laughs

A child running with a knife can be a potentially dangerous thing as all parents know. However, in the particular case that we are about to discuss, it also provided some laughs.

Chelsey Ryan who is twenty-two years old was hanging out with some friends on Labor Day weekend of this year. She was waiting for her turn to step up to the table and play some beer pong. While she was waiting, she saw her son running around and being particularly hyped up. She pulled out her phone as you do when you are twenty-two and see something potentially funny happening and began to film her son.

It was at this moment according to the Washington Post that the mother noticed her son was carrying something as he was running. She asked him what he was carrying, and the little boy joyfully yells back “a knife!” as he continues running with a smile on his face.

As soon as the mother hears the words, a friend who was also present at the party yells “no!” and begins to draw chase after him. However, the video is only four seconds long, so viewers are left wondering what happens next.

Fortunately, this story is all happy. No one was hurt as a result of this incident, but many have been provided with a little humor in their lives as a result. It is the type of video that just has all of the perfect elements and timing to get a big laugh out of almost anyone who watches it. In part this is probably because the scenario is so easy to relate to for a lot of us. Young children and elements of danger are two things that can in some cases go hand in hand.

Quick though this video may be, the humor of it is not lost on many. It is all the better to know that no one was hurt as a result of all of this, and that everyone can just smile at the funniness of it all.

Glitter Coffee Drinks Are Blowing Up Instagram

People are always experimenting with new ways to drink their coffee. The latest trend that is blowing up the internet is drinking glitter coffee, glitter lattes, and glitter cappuccinos. People are posting pictures all over Instagram of their coffee drinks with various glitter designs.

 

Coffee by Di Bella, a coffee shop in Australia, was the first to create this kind of coffee. They called it the Diamond and Gold Cappuccino. It is basically a regular cappuccino, but with a touch of and a sprinkle of gold and diamond glitter on the top.

 

The main reason why people are even buying this coffee is in order to post pictures of it on their Instagram accounts. The owner of Coffee by Di Bella admitted that social media is one of the main reasons that the glitter coffee drink even exists. He said that he wanted to create a drink that is social media friendly.

 

If you want to drink this coffee, be aware that your mouth will get full of glitter. Regular glitter is not edible, so it may not be entirely safe or healthy to actually drink and consume all that glitter. That is why it is a good idea that if you do want to create your own glitter cappuccinos, you should only use FDA approved edible glitter. These types of glitter are entirely safe to consume and will not pose any health risks.

 

Other companies have also been tapping into the social media coffee trend. Starbucks has been creating various kinds of coffee and lattes that are very visually appealing. People are posting pictures of those lattes on Instagram as well.

 

A cafe in the West Midlands, which is in the United Kingdom, is also becoming famous for their golden glitter lattes. This cafe is owned by Deb and Andrew Pease. One user said that the glitter cappuccino tastes like a regular cappuccino, but with more bling.

Robocall Mispronunciation of a Student’s Name Goes Viral

Nicomi Stewart is an angry mum. She is angered by the consistent mispronunciation of her daughter’s name by a robocall machine.

According to Stewart, an automated call was sent to her phone pronouncing the name of her daughter Nicarri with a racially toned “N” word.The message was simply meant to inform her that her daughter had missed a class and said “This is Edison Career and Technology High School. Your daughter, N****r, has missed period one on…”

The robocall was repeated a couple of times, giving Stewart a perfect opportunity to record it.Speaking to a local Tv station, Steward said, “It was unbelievable. I was shocked. I was disgusted. I was upset.”

The school administration was however profusely apologetic over the incidence and promised to have the girl’s name removed from the automated calling system.

Lawrence Bo Wright, the deputy superintendent of administration at the school, said that the mispronunciation was caused by a software error, adding that the school has contacted the family and apologized accordingly.

The school has outsourced its messaging services to Blackboard Connect, a software developer who is responsible for the mass messages to various stakeholders.

Blackboard Connect explained that the software generates voice from text that is keyed into the system through a Test To Speech(TTS) app. “In this case it appears that the system mispronounced the recipient’s child’s name, sounding like a racial slur.”

The story could not have made as much scuffle had WHAM-TV not made a thing about it. However, Stewart was still annoyed by the fact that the school kept on sending her the slurred message even after the complaints.

“They’re making me look like I’m slightly bananas and lying about this, when they’re saying they rectified something they haven’t rectified yet,” Stewart said.

The school claimed that the problem had been rectified and that they would only contact her by phone a call or email until the correction is done.
