These 3-Piece Animal Rings Let You Rock Your Favorite Wildlife In Style

I’m not the biggest fan of jewelry. I find it kind of useless to deck yourself out in a bunch of little trinkets and stuff for seemingly no reason. Yeah, I guess it looks nice and all that, but the idea of having a bunch of superfluous stuff hanging off of me is annoying enough. I don’t even like wearing too many clothes, let alone hanging a bunch of metal or leather off my body that doesn’t need to be there.

However, I’ll concede that there are some people who can rock a good piece of jewelry and make it look amazing. But most of that is because the person rocking said jewelry is responsible for it being so awesome.

With these cool 3-piece animal rings, however, I don’t think you need to be cool at all. Hell, you could be Jon Lovitz from The Wedding Singer and they’d still look good.

Like this sleepy little sloth just chilling on your finger. “Ayo, don’t move them digits, B.”

These aren’t the official names of these products, in case you thought I was being entirely serious – because I wasn’t.

Doesn’t change the fact that they’re pretty awesome, though.

Mila Kunis Called Out Hollywood's Rampant Sexism In This Revealing Open Letter

As much as we’d like to think otherwise, Hollywood isn’t immune to the rampant sexism that plagues the workforce and ensures that women won’t achieve pay parity for another 136 years. And who better to reveal the horrific industry secrets than an insider herself?

Actress and businesswoman Mila Kunis penned an open letter, published on Ashton Kutcher’s website A Plus, calling out the culture of misogyny in Hollywood — and declaring that she’s done caving to the industry’s sexist approaches. 

She began her letter by recounting a situation in which a Hollywood producer threatened her career when she refused to pose semi-nude on the cover of a magazine to promote her upcoming film. 

“‘You’ll never work in this town again.’ A cliché to be sure, but also what a producer threatened when I refused to pose semi-naked on the cover of a men’s magazine to promote our film. I was no longer willing to subject myself to a naïve compromise that I had previously been willing to. ‘I will never work in this town again??’ I was livid, I felt objectified, and for the first time in my career I said ‘no.'”

The producer was wrong — she did work again (she’s Mila f*cking Kunis, after all) but the encounter stuck with her. 

“What this producer may never realize is that he spoke aloud the exact fear every woman feels when confronted with gender bias in the workplace.”

“It’s what we are conditioned to believe — that if we speak up, our livelihoods will be threatened; that standing our ground will lead to our demise. We don’t want to be kicked out of the sand box for being a “bitch.” So we compromise our integrity for the sake of maintaining status quo and hope that change is coming.”

In an attempt to avoid the misogyny of Hollywood, Kunis started her own production company, Orchard Farm Productions. After signing with a producer and pitching a show to a network, the executive wrote the following in an executive email chain:

“And Mila is a mega star. One of biggest actors in Hollywood and soon to be Ashton’s wife and baby momma!!!”

….Hmm, last time we checked, “Ashton’s baby momma” wasn’t the top entry on her IMDB page. 

With his email, the producer epitomized the issues women in the entertainment industry (and workforce in general) are facing. 

This is the entirety of his email. Factual inaccuracies aside, he reduced my value to nothing more than my relationship to a successful man and my ability to bear children. It ignored my (and my team’s) significant creative and logistical contributions.

Kunis ended the partnership because she’s a badass and completely over this kind of behavior. 

She ended her letter promising to confront Hollywood sexism head on. Because she will work in “this town” — and she can decide who she’ll agree to work with. 

“I’m done compromising; even more so I’m done with being compromised. So from this point forward, when I am confronted with one of these comments, subtle or overt, I will address them head on; I will stop in the moment and do my best to educate.”

“I will work in this town again, but I will not work with you.”

Yaaas. Bowing down. You tell ’em, Mila.

Johnny Depp Scored A Major Role In 'Fantastic Beasts' And Harry Potter Fans Won't Stand For It

Harry Potter fanatics have been chomping at the bit for months, just waiting for the November 18th movie release of Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.

As is customary with any ‘Harry Potter’ related event, costumes were in their final stages, people were preparing themselves emotionally for cinematic greatness, and waging an online war for tickets. Nothing could put a damper on this occasion.

…Until one announcement about the cast changed the tone, that is.

Yesterday, Deadline reported that Johnny Depp would have a major role in the Fantastic Beasts films. He’ll be appearing only briefly in the first movie, but is reported to have a starring role in the sequel.

Harry Potter fans and J.K. Rowling devotees were NOT pleased by the choice.

After abuse allegations surfaced during Depp’s divorce from actress Amber Heard over the summer, former fans have refused to support his career. Heard dropped the allegations when they settled in court in August, donating all the financial proceeds to charity. 

An overwhelming number of fans seemed to think that his less-than-stellar record over the last year will cast a shadow over the highly-anticipated project.

We had to wonder, didn’t anyone think this through??!???

Now we’re left with a really crappy dilemma:

And people couldn’t help but notice that actresses’ careers had been ruined over much milder offenses.

Certain men in Hollywood seem to be having a great week — but at what cost?

This Local Dentist Is Buying Kids Halloween Candy From Them For A Really Great Cause

The last thing a dentist usually wants to hear when a kid plops down in their chair is that he just spent his last week after Halloween clearing out his entire duffel bag of candy.

And the first thought the childhood version of you has for that is probably, “WELL TOO BAD! I WORKED DAMN HARD FOR THIS CANDY AND I’LL DO WHATEVER I WANT WITH IT!” Which is fine, you’re entitled to that opinion.

And adult you, well, might very well have that same reaction, but at least there’s the knowledge that these sweets will ultimately jack your teeth up. This is especially true if you’ve had to take care of a cavity or two in your life.

So this dentist’s office decided to help kids protect their teeth while serving a good cause. And to do that, they want to buy their extra Halloween candy.

Tillery Family Dental is willing to give kids $ 1 per pound of candy ($ 5 maximum) for all their leftover treats. While that might not sound like the sweetest deal out there, it’s for a pretty noble reason.

All the extra Halloween candy from home is being sent to US troops stationed overseas so they can enjoy some all-hallows-goodness.

The dentistry is also giving trick-or-treaters willing to part with their precious sweets (for cash) some paper and writing utensils so they can write notes for the soldiers who’ll be snacking on their forked-over sweets.

The candy’s being shipped to Operation Gratitude and will be wrapped up as part of care packages for US soldiers abroad and first responders stationed home.

Kids are also getting a goody bag from the dentist of their own: a toothbrush, floss, toothpaste, and other dental stuff.

Nowhere near as exciting as a stash of Reese’s, but at least they can rest well knowing they helped but a smile on a homesick person’s face. And that they probably have one less cavity to worry about. (h/t fox59)

The World's Best Dad Passed Out Candy On A Plane So His 3-Year-Old Could Trick-Or-Treat

Halloween is the greatest holiday of the year — especially when you’re under the age of 15 and don’t know what the word ‘metabolism’ means. You get to dress up and run from house to house demanding candy, and then you get to eat as much as you want! It’s a child’s dream come true. 

But one adorable 3-year-old named Molly was missing out on the first year when she was really old enough to enjoy the tradition, all because she was stuck on an evening flight with her dad from Boston’s Logan Airport to San Francisco International Airport. 

But, according to Twitter user Stephanie Kahan, the “Dad of the year” wasn’t about to let his little girl miss out on the trick-or-treating fun — so he passed out candy to everyone on the flight to give her as she walked down the aisle. 

The candy came with a note that read:

Happy Halloween!

My 3-year-old daughter, Molly, was bummed that she wouldn’t be able to go trick-or-treating this year due to this flight… so I decided to bring trick-or-treating to her. If you are willing, when my little donut comes down the aisle, please drop this in her basket. You’ll be making her Halloween! If you’re unwilling, no worries, just pass the treat back to me. Thanks so much!

BEST. DAD. EVER. 

Has your heart exploded yet?

If not, let us remind you MOLLY WAS A DONUT FOR HALLOWEEN. 

The photos have been retweeted nearly 60,000 times in less than 24 hours — and Twitter can’t handle all the cuteness. 

Moral of the story: good is still out there. Even with presidential election anxiety looming over us, we have this reminder that there exist the kind of people who help their kids trick-or-treat on planes.
