Hong Kong just went next level with the fast food dining experience.
We associate Mickey D's with grease-soaked, hastily-fried, platters of 'do I really want the salad this time, or anytime though?'
Who would've thought McDonald's would've introduced classy presentations--we're talking burgers on cutting boards--fresh ingredients, for the freshest salads; and even insta-fame-worthy lattes with artful twists that'd color any hipster grateful.
Nothing warms the heart quite like two victims of circumstances beyond their control, finding solace in the companionship of one another.
At 10-months-old Scarlette Tipton lost her left arm to cancer. Her parents desperately wanted little Scarlette, now two-years-old, to have the chance to grow up with a little kitten just like her; and they couldn't have found a better match. Meet Doc: a rescue kitten who had her right paw amputated following a car accident.
On Christmas Eve the two were united at a shelter in California. That very Wednesday, Doc had already been welcomed aboard as the new member of the family.
Scarlett's mother, Simone Tipton, told Love Meow that Scarlette "did notice that Doc had staples on her side and said 'owies'. I let her know that she had owies just like her, and she placed her hand on her side and just nodded. She recognizes that the cat has similar struggles as she does."
Ryan Reynolds is not messing around with his role as Deadpool, on and off the screen. Blake Lively's been nothing if not a great pillar of support for her husband as he's pranced around enjoying the 12 Days of Deadpool, and also insisted on sporting his costume for Mother's Day and Thanksgiving.
Lively pulled through with this custom-made, wool rendition of Deadpool riding a unicorn while brandishing a chimichanga for one kicka** holiday gift. Big boy's gotta' eat right?
A group of college students had the real-life Professor Snape.
His name was Henry Lloyd Snape, and while he didn't wield a wand—far as we know— fawn after Lily Potter, or make a mad magical potion; he did claim his expertise in the field of Chemistry. So, he was pretty much the Half Blood Prince. Check him out, pictured in the center, below.
In The Irish Times, the real-life Professor Snape is described as uncannily lenient towards a dark but charismatic disposition, much like the demeanor of Severus as played by Alan Rickman in the 'Harry Potter' flicks.
What gets the bit between the teeth on the connection between Henry Lloyd and JK's Severus Snape, is Rodger's discovery of a recent lecture that was titled 'The Philosopher of Stone.' This immediately brings to mind the title of the first 'Harry Potter' book, 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.'
As a final resounding note we'll add that Henry Lloyd taught at Aberystwyth University, an old college building that had Gothic spires and turrets eerily similar to Hogwarts.
It's as if this story walked right off the set of a heartwarming Hallmark Holiday movie; this will bring on all the warm and fuzzy feels.
David Marks told ABC News,
I couldn't believe it. It was an absolute surprise, and the perfect Christmas gift.
For the last six years spent away from his home, Willie was provided for by a family out of Eureka, Nevada, almost 300 miles from his home in Las Vegas. With Willie back at home, the Marks tell the press that it feels like everything's right again. Isn't that a happy ending to a long and bumpy tale?
The Swedes are nuts man. In honor of upholding a Christmas tradition, a 25-year-old Swede set ablaze an enormous decorative goat made of straw.
The authorities are waiting to question the emboldened madman, likely hopped up on all manners of vodka, till he sobers up. Apparently the goat preceded Santa as the bringer of Christmas gifts in old Swedish tradition.
Jean Francois showed off these cleats, which depict Darth Vader and Kylo Ren to the eager eyes of the internet today.
