This brother sent his whole family lovely Christmas cards on his sister's behalf. It sounds like she had an amazing 2016 (unlike the rest of us) after meeting "famous rapper" Chief Keef and (possibly?) starting a family with him. 


But it turns out that it was just an excellent work of photoshop/brilliant troll. 

 

P.S. Bang Bang

donald trump politics Donald Trump's Claims About His Manhood Spawned a Pun-Based Twitter Movement

During the Republican debate, candidates devolved into a literal penis measuring contest. Here's a video of a choice clip of Donald Trump defending his size because as Americans, that's the kind of thing that's important to us when choosing a leader. 



This lead to the creation of the "Girthers" movement, a pun on the "Birthers" movement that plagued President Obama's campaign. So, at least something funny came out of it.  Of course Twitter is awash with jokes (be prepared for a lot of "long form" puns).

This dog was turning heads on his way to a first class airplane seat. The origin of this spoiled pup remains a mystery. Though onlookers may be snickering at this extra large dog being pulled around in a fancy cart like a Roman emperor, he's the one getting the last laugh. This dog is obviously living in the lap of luxury.

An anonymous hacker, known only on Twitter as @WauchulaGhost, and a few of their friends hijacked several Twitter accounts that were known to be associated or in support of ISIS.  This has been going on for a few months, @WauchulaGhost is apparently affiliated with the "hacktivist" group Anonymous. After the attack in Orlando, they and some others have stared adding rainbows, messages saying "Out and Proud" and even some links to gay porn to these compromised accounts. According to Newsweek, the hacker claims to have taken over at least 200 accounts and plans to continue this campaign.

This picture was taken at Horsetail Fall in Yosemite National Park. Apparently this happens every year but it's hard to catch a picture at just the right moment. Photographer Sangeeta Dey explained this on a post about her own picture on Facebook:

Every year for two weeks in February, the sun sets at a certain angle and illuminates the waterfall in luminescent orange and red, making it look like a fluid fire. I’ve met photographers who said that they have been coming for 11 years only to see this happen 2 or 3 times.

Jake Booth was in a coma for 47 days and when he finally woke up he asked for one thing: Taco Bell. For a while that couldn't happen because he had a tracheotomy but now he can eat all the Taco Bell he wants. Jake's family set up a GoFundMe campaign to help pay for the costs of his ongoing recovery.

When Michael John Kent proposed to his girlfriend in Reykjavik, Iceland they probably thought they had the street all to themselves. They discovered later that a bystander had captured the perfect photo of the proposal just at the right time. When he didn't hear back from her after giving out the wrong email the search was on and he took to the internet to find this mystery photographer.

Much to the couple's delight, they found her thanks to the powers of social media.

The woman who took the photo, Jessica Bowe, had already posted it to her Instagram. Later the happy couple went back to Iceland to meet their photographer and thank her for the image. They even did a quick interview with a local news outlet in the video above.

This woman posted a photo gallery of her story on Imgur which led to a diagnosis of a genetic disease that affects connective tissues called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS). She explains the backstory in the description of the follow up picture post:

Five months ago, I posted "The Story Of A Broken Dancer." In this post, I told the story of how all I've ever wanted was to be a professional dancer, but that countless injuries and unexplained medical issues were coming in between me and my dream. Well, after posting this, hundreds of Imgurians commented on the post and messaged me saying I should look at different conditions or diseases they thought I had, but one that I received overwhelmingly was "Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS), Hyper Mobility Type III." I looked into it and decided it was worth a shot to get the testing done, and as of this morning, I have been officially confirmed to have EDS.

Dude Trolls a Wrong Number Asking to Buy Drugs, Sends Mystery Buyer to an Abandoned Building

This guy got a text from someone who obviously thought he was their drug dealer. Since the recipient of the messages wasn't actually a drug dealer, he decided to troll the wrong number instead, leading him to an abandoned building with, presumably, an armful of McDonald's. At least he won't go hungry?

This photo was taken by passing photographer, Saber Miresmailli, who then took to the internet to find the lovely couple.  Responses have been tremendous and a Twitter user came forward claiming to know the couple.  The photographer then made a statement on his Facebook page saying that, until they come home from their honeymoon and claim the picture, their identities are unconfirmed. 

Finally, they have returned from their honeymoon and even did an interview with ITV News London.  They say they were shocked at the attention they got and basically agree that it's a very nice picture.
