A Cheshire man was able to survive a close-range shotgun glass because of his pocketed iPhone, which absorbed most of the damage:

Tumblr user Obvious Plant (aka Jeff Wysaski/PleatedJeans) is known for conducting some pretty clever pranks in which he “plants” fake signs around shops and other public spots around L.A.

One that recently got a lot of attention involved him placing some fake self-help books like “So You’re Son is a Centaur” among real books at a store in West Hollywood.

He’s also trolled a wine shop with some custom recommendations.

For his latest stunt, Wysaski stopped by a local pet shop and added a few of his own descriptions to some of the animals’ tanks and cages.

“Sometimes, you’ve just got to take it into your own hands to expand a store’s product line,” he writes.

These included everything from Guy Fieri hamsters and baby Godzillas to invisible fish and judgmental tree frogs.

Here are a few below, but you can check out the full set and more of his work on his Tumblr.

Rowling shut them down deftly, but one twitter user suggested that may not have been the right thing to do:



JK rebutted by saying the WBC wasn't what was important, but rather her show of support for those who need it:



You go, JK Rowling!
