By now you’ve probably seen the new Charlie Hebdo cover featuring the prophet Muhammad holding a sign that says “Je Suis Charlie.” It’s plastered all over the Internet at this point.

The print issues sold out in Paris, and 300 copies are on their way to the United States this week.

But a number of big media outlets still refuse to show it (ahem… The New York Times).

In this video from a Sky News segment Wednesday, former Charlie Hebdo contributor Caroline Fourest expresses her outrage at such news organizations and begins to hold up a copy of the magazine.

“I am very sad that journalists in the UK do not support us, that journalists in the UK betray what journalism is about by thinking that people are not grown-up enough to decide whether a drawing is offensive or not,” she said.

But she isn’t able to finish her thought, as the cameras immediately cut back to the anchor, Dharshini David.

“I do apologize for any of our viewers who may have been offended,” she says.

Is this Marvel's newest superhero?

A man in China was arrested this past weekend for trying to smuggle in 94 iPhones from Hong Kong where they are cheaper to purchase.

Customs officials were suspicious of the way he was walking, so they had him go through the metal detectors.

That's when they discovered $49,000 worth of Apple products (both iPhone 6 and iPhone 5S models) taped to his midsection in this makeshift suit of armor.

Crotch Siri is now scarred for life.

If you saw that headline and didn't immediately think "FLORIDA," you haven't been paying attention.

Sean Petrozzino (above) inspired many in his fight with bacterial meningitis, which prompted surgeries to remove his infected hands and legs. Now, however, he's on the run and declared a "person of interest" after his parents were found dead in their home.

You can't make this stuff up.

Hide yo kids, hide wives, hide yo husbands, and definitely hide yo grandmas. The only way we could make this very real life story of a reindeer running amok through the tea-soaked streets of a temporarily improper Nottingham, is if Arnold Shwarzznegger reprised his role from Jingle All The Way, to catch the runaway reindeer.

Somebody must've slipped something in Bjorn the reindeer's eggnog Sunday, because he went buckwild.

"I was putting some Christmas cards up in the window and just saw it come charging down the street," local resident Gemma Green told the Nottingham Post. "Then I saw a group of people following it.

"It was quite strange. It's like the scene from Arthur Christmas where Santa loses his reindeer. I thought I was seeing things at first." Maybe she was, but heck if that's a way to spur some Christmas spirit.
