Molly the elephant seal has been spending a few weeks in with humans in Tasmania's Bruny Island.  She mostly spends her time relaxing in someone's back yard.

She just wants to hang out with the locals. Although she doesn't seem to be very dangerous she still leaves a path of destruction in her wake.

That's why she has to be lured back to the wild with a big fish on a string. Who knows how long she'll stay away though, this isn't the first time she's come to visit.

Adam Sandler's new movie just got some serendiptious free advertising. Apparently the main character's name is Max Kessler, but Max is real so he posted this image on Reddit:

So then actual Adam Sandler responded in the thread and Max responded back.

And then Sandler invited Max to the premiere of 'The Do-Over'.

Of course he went, met his celebrity doppleganger and the rest is history.

Yesterday, George Zimmerman announced that he would be auctioning off the infamous gun used in the killing of Trayvon Martin as "a piece of American history". It did not take long for that auction to get pulled but Zimmerman managed to find a different website to host his auction after all.  

A troll on the internet wasted no time on vigilante justice though, going by the name of "Racist McShootface" and driving the price of the gun into the millions.

Eventually the troll account was disabled but it was enough to inspire other trolls to carry on his good work. Reportedly, the fake bid made it up to around $65 million. It's unclear if the trolls will ultimately shut down the auction or if it will go to the highest legitimate bidder. The website it is hosted on has made it clear that they do not manage the auctions that users host on their site.

So far the seemingly most legitimate bidder is Brez Morrell according to Gawker, who bid up to $485,000 before "Racist McShootface" derailed the proceedings. Also of note, and not particularly surprising, Brez Morrell's response to trolls was to defend Zimmerman and tell trolls that he (or she) hopes their "children get murdered". Awesome.

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 Facebook post advertised free cell doors for pickup and became a funny message to remind citizens out there to stay on the right side of the law. This is the whole post:
