A high school student posted this image on her Facebook page in outrage over her schools graduation dress code guidelines directed specifically toward female students. The detail of expectations and focus on shaming of female students into covering their bodies, particularly if they have any weight related imperfections ("sausage rolls") compared to the much more relaxed guidelines directed toward the "gentlemen" is what some people find so upsetting.

Nibbles thinks he’s a dog, and it’s the cutest thing ever.

Watch as this Rouen duck waits patiently for his best human friend Johnny to come home from school, and as soon as the boy is in sight, he completely loses it.

Johnny also greets him with a few kisses on his bill once all the quacking starts dying down a bit.

It’s only a matter of time before he learns to bark.

His owners explain that Nibbles wears a tiny diaper so that he can go on car rides and spend time in their house.

Do yourself a favor and check out the rest of the clips on their YouTube channel.

Here they are going for a walk down the street together set to “Stand By Me.”

And here he is eating Johnny’s homework, just like a dog is supposed to do.
