Kim And Kanye Revealed The Name Of Their Third Child And People Can't Handle It

When Kim Kardashian and Kanye West has their first child and named her North West, it seemed obvious what direction things would go in. Obviously, their next three kids would be South West, East West, and eventually West West. But when you expect Kimye to zig, they zag.

Little Saint West was born, adding a much holier dimension to the family. When the couple announced they were expecting a third child via surrogate, it was anyone’s guess what was coming.

Now, here she is. Chicago West.

Kim also RTd this, for the folks not sure how to pronounce Chi, because they’re not from Chicago. It’s like “shy.”

Kim and Kanye can’t go for a walk without the Internet weighing in, so you better believe people have thoughts about named a kid after a major metropolitan area:

I understand why people are freaked. Celebrities are generally known for giving their children really ground, average, and unremarkable names. Also for hating drama and attention. 

What do Kim and Kanye think they’re doing??

Donald Trump Is Reportedly Both 'Obsessed' With And 'Terrified' Of Sharks

Okay, so adult film star Stormy Daniels alleges she slept with Donald Trump while he was married to Melania Trump. She gave a full account of the experience according to her to In Touch Weekly, and it’s about as depressing as you can imagine. The salaciousness isn’t even terribly salacious!

But there is one part of Daniels’ account that people are loving.

The man sitting in the White House is allegedly really, really scared of sharks:

The second time Daniels met Trump, she claims he was watching Shark Week on the television. The conversation turned to the ocean’s deadly predator.

The Donald reportedly told her, “I donate to all these charities and I would never donate to any charity that helps sharks. I hope all the sharks die.”

“He was like riveted. He was like obsessed. It’s so strange, I know,” said Daniels.

Sharks are very scary, but humans are far more dangerous to to them than they are to us. In fact, shark species have been decimated by human shark-hunting ever since the film Jaws was released and sacred people right out of the water. It’s a pretty serious problem for the ocean eco-system—not that Trump gives a crap about the Earth or logical thinking.

People are very interested in his very specific and unnecessary phobia:

It also turns out that Trump’s Twitter account has lot of shark hate in it, too:

He is haunted by sharks at every turn—he even tied them in with the threat of nuclear war at one point? Maybe if we tell Trump that sharks will get him if he starts a nuclear war, it’ll hold him back.

One last fun tidbit is that Trump allegedly told Daniels that he’s afraid if he cuts his hair, he’ll lose all his power:

That could have been a joke, but who knows at this point.

Wife's Dying Wish To Husband Ends Up Being A Hilarious Practical Joke

When Phedre Nicol was battling cancer in 2013 at the age of 69, she gave her husband, Nigel, strict instructions should she pass away. Those instructions? Keep watering the plants in their South Africa home. 

And when Phedre lost her battle in the same year, Nigel, now 73, started keeping that promise. And he’s been watering the ferns in their bathroom for years. Though he probably did wonder why there were puddles of water on the floor every time he watered them. 

Fast forward to 2018, and Nigel is moving into a retirement home. The ferns were still in such good shape, that he decided to pack them along with his belongings. Only then did he realize that how wife has been playing a prank on him this entire time. 

Daughter Antonia, a firefighter from London, explained the prank on Twitter…

Yes, Phedre has had Nigel watering plastic for a few years. Antonia explained to The Mirror that no one else was in on the prank…

Antonia explains that her father was so “overcome with grief,” he religiously watered the plants. The couple had apparently always been pranksters…

She goes on to explain what the discovery meant for her father…

And the reaction it got from social media was even more heartwarming. 

Nigel even reenacted the watering of the ferns for his new fans…

To say this is peak relationship goals is an understatement…

Cat Survives For A Week In Home Destroyed By Santa Barbara Mudslide

Earlier in the month, landslides devastated the community of Montecito, California, leaving at least 20 people dead and several still missing. More than a hundred buildings were also destroyed or damaged, as roads became rivers of boulders. 

Experts pinned the blame on mountains rising and becoming unstable because of the region’s active faults. It’s believed that these were made even more unstable because recent wildfires had scorched much of the surrounding area’s vegetation, allowing much more rain into the soil

Lindsey and Woody Thompson were among those affected by the disaster, losing their home in the space of a few minutes. The couple were so afraid, they left goodbye messages for each other in case one of them did not make it. 

They were luck enough to survive, and were airlifted to safety after rescue teams were unable to get to their home by land. But in all the chaos, they lost their beloved cat Koshka. 

Despite getting separated, the couple were certain that Koshka was still alive. “We knew that she was alive and we knew that she was smart and she would find a safe spot,” Woody said

They reached out to Santa Barbara County Animal Services (SBCAS), who were helping track down lost animals and providing shelter to the animals of families who needed it. 

SBCAS sent a team to the house to see if they could find any signs of the cat. 

“Our teams went to the property as soon as we were able but we were not able to access the property safely,” they wrote in a statement.  

Because a local fire team was on the scene, they were able to get close enough to spot some positive signs but were also unable to enter the property. 

“We consulted with a nearby fire team who was unable to see Koshka but could see her muddy paw prints which gave us hope.”

The team returned daily from January 9th to the 15th, when officers Pennon and Lauren of the ASPCA felt it was safe to access the house through a window. There, they found Koshka caked in mud, but in good health and excited to see some human faces for the first time in more than a week. 

SBCAS recorded the tearful moment the family was reunited. 

“They called her the ‘pawprint kitty’ and she lived, and I just can’t thank you enough. We needed this. Thank you. You’re our heroes,” Lindsey says during the video. 

“Those small victories are so important. there’s so much devastation here and being able to reunite that cat with her family was special for me, was special for our department,” Officer Pennon told KEYT

As you can imagine, social media was touched by the reunion. The video has received over 3,000 shares since it was published. 

One Facebook user shared a similar experience and what it meant to them: 

“We lost our home, everything we had-barely managed to escape-from a wildfire in Nor Cal,” the commenter wrote. “A week later I got an email from Home Again, they found my cat (she was microchipped and the microchip was registered with current contact info), Animal Control found our cat. Burned, scared, and alive. We lost everything we own, but got our cat back. I feel these people’s joy. Congratulations!”

Others couldn’t imagine the same thing happening to them. 

“I own 7 kitties and can’t even imagine the thought of losing one of them like this,” another user wrote. “Thanks SO much to the rescuers who kept returning to search for this beauty and thanks to kitty Koshka for keeping the faith and having good instincts. Lots of tears here!” 

Others were quick to applaud all those involved in the rescue. 

“Thank you so much officer Pennon and partner Lauren. You made two people very happy because you took the time to rescue their kitty. There is a special place in heaven for people like you.”

“So nice to see something positive come from so much tragedy!”

“Thank you Officer Michael Snyder-Pennon from Dallas, Texas. There is a special place for people like you in heaven. What a selfless act sir. Thank you. You have helped start the healing process for this family.”

What an amazing moment.

Texans Without Ice Scrapers Got Really Creative To Clear Their Cars

Winter storm Inga is bringing deep snow and freezing conditions to Texas, and while hundreds of  thousands of students are getting the day off, people still need to get to work. 

The problem? No one seems to own an ice scraper. This is Texas, after all. They’re far more accustom to heatwaves than snow storms. That means Texans have had to get pretty inventive when it comes to their morning commute. 

A frisbee is probably going to take you a while…

Some people went with clothes hangers. 

That’s just going to scratch your window…

Some people went with science. 

A key chain will take you hours. 

Gift, credit, and membership cards didn’t go so well for most people…

Others took to Twitter to offer some hacks for the poor Texans. 

Some people from up north weren’t so kind. 

You’ll get through this, Texas.

This Thread About All The Weird Stuff Kids Freak Out Over Is Priceless

Being a parent means traveling everywhere with a small, irrational human who at any point might completely lose their chill. There are also joys to parenting, but this thread started by Twitter user @SparkyROAR is definitely focused on the “losing their chill” part.

@SparkyROAR posted a photo (taken with the parent’s permission) of a kid lodging a silent protest against his color coordinated accessories:

But it was taken with absolute admiration for the child’s commitment:

Everyone commiserated with how odd child behavior is, but also how funny?

Then the stories from parents of all the things that have been upsetting their little weirdoes came out:

Also, many responsible adults pointed out that usually when kids are having a freak out, it’s because they’re tired or hungry and too stressed out to express that verbally. It is duly acknowledged that it’s perhaps not nice to laugh at a kid in distress, even if it seems to be over something ridiculous. But being a parent is also hard, and if you can’t laugh about your kid wanting to lick the plunger, you just might cry, too.

H&M Store In South Africa Trashed Over 'Coolest Monkey' Sweatshirt

And over the weekend, protesters aligned with South Africa’s Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) political party, which is a “radical, leftist, anti-capitalist and anti-imperialist movement,” according to their website, trashed a store at Sandton City Shopping Centre in Johannesburg.

Images uploaded by shoppers and journalists show protesters outside the store as well as images of the store after it was allegedly trashed by members of the group. 

In a statement to local radio station Jacaranda FM, the EFF’s Donald Mabunda said: 

According to News24 journalist Alex Mitchley, the group gave the store 24 hours to close its doors permanently. The group said they will continue to protest indefinitely if the store fails to do so. 

Mabunda claimed to Jacaranda FM that the store has since been closed adding that they are willing to sleep at the shopping center until they can meet with a H&M representative. 

Sandton City Shopping Centre issued this statement on Twitter: 

The incident was met with both acceptance and outrage online.

Math Student Plays Two 'Star Wars' Songs With Nothing But A Pencil

We challenge you to name a more iconic band than Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes. Or as you may know them, the yellow alien guys who play the Cantina Theme in Star Wars: A New Hope

And as it turns out, you can play the Cantina Theme with nothing but a pencil. Twitter user Dani was doing her math homework when she noticed the equation she was working on sounded familiar. Have a listen. You’ll need sound on, obviously.  

Here it is with the music over the top. 

But it doesn’t end there. Here she is doing the Imperial March…

What is this magic?! Yes, social media was just as entranced as we were. 

These two users were happy that the tweet was getting people to think about math. 

Some people were more interested in what all that math actually meant. 

Others wanted to go even further. 

Some are calling for a record deal. 

One person even managed to fool their parents with it.

This Mom Loves Taco Bell So Much She Had Her Maternity Shoot In One

Kristin Johnston loves Taco Bell. Like, a lot.

So much so, that she wants her love for the Bell to be passed down to her children, apparently.

I mean, why else would someone have a maternity photo shoot at arguably the greatest fast food chain in the world?

During her pregnancy, Johnston had tons of cravings for one of America’s healthiest fast food spots on the regular, so she thought, why not honor the franchise that gave her so much joy in a series of professional photos showing off her baby bump?

Johnston wrote about her reasoning behind the unusual venue choice for her glamorous maternity photo shoot on her blog, Strollers and Stilletos.

She mainly attributed her decision to do something outside of the ordinary, as she was a bit tired with the “glamorous” and “ethereal” photoshoots with “awe-inspiring” backgrounds. I have to agree, it does get a bit hackneyed.

So she and her “sister friend,” Kelly Daniels, who happens to be a professional photographer, went to a Taco Bell location in Atlanta and produced these fabulous photos.

And when I say fabulous, I mean pretty darn fabulous. Just look at how awesome these are.

Every part of the Bell was utilized in the shoot. Whether she’s cheesin’ at the counter.

Or showing off her baby bump with some mild sauce.

Johnston managed to make a Taco Bell look as ethereal and majestic as any foamy, pebble peach of mountainous valley.

People were in love with Johnston’s declaration of fast food love.

And as it turns out, she wasn’t the only pregnant Kristin with a love for T. Bell.

Could you blame her? I mean, if I had the ability to gestate a fetus, I’d probably want to get a maternity shoot at Taco Bell, too. What do you think?
