The Reviews For This 12-Foot Beach Ball Are As Hilarious As You Expect

There’s some pretty interesting stuff you can buy on Amazon. And along with them come hilarious reviews from people who have purchased them. The latest review to take the Internet by storm comes from this 12-foot inflatable beach ball, which seems like a pretty solid purchasing decision. 

“Measuring a ridiculous 12 feet from pole to pole, the Beach Behemoth is the largest beach ball you might ever behold,” a description of the ball reads. 

Reid Hamlin was one person who decided to give the ball a go, and after spending an hour inflating it, they seem to be regretting their decision. Their review reads: 

Other people also seemed to run into issues with the ball.

One user decided to take the ball to their son’s graduation party. It did not go well…

Well, that sounds terrifying. It didn’t seem to stop Reddit users from wanting one, though. 

Some want it for a prank. 

Others claim to have spotted the ball. 

Many commenters weren’t put off by the destruction, though.

Mom Shares Picture Of Her Daughter On The Beach And Gets Slammed Over Child's Skin

Mom bloggers and Instagram influencers are very popular on social media, but part of the job is receiving a lot of scrutiny for how you’re doing as a parent. One woman just got put through the gauntlet after posting an innocent picture of her kid enjoying a beach day.

This is her daughter Winter (thus, life with Winter):

Winter is more camera shy than her mom. Then there’s the wee babe, Wilde, who has not yet developed the motor functions to crawl away from branding opportunities:

As a mom Instagram model, Jones shares a lot of pic of the kids enjoying surf and sun, but one picture of Winter recently kicked up a controversy. It showed Winter walking along the beach, appearing very tan:

According to Metro.uk, Jones woke up to discover the post had been flagged and removed.

Apparently, the image had been littered with comments about Winter’s skin tone, like, “It’s disgusting to see how dark your daughter’s skin in,” and “Have you heard of suncream? How about you start using it before your kid looks 40 at four. Horrible mother.”

Jones believes the image was flagged because people were disparaging her daughter’s skin. She posted a follow up on Instagram telling the haters to step off:

In the caption she wrote:

The comments were full of supportive people who tan easily:

The feedback was so positive that Jones followed with another pic of Winter having a blast on the beach:

In the caption, Jones says that she’s incredibly grateful for the response, and states that her family is of Aboriginal descent, which is partly of why Winter’s skin tends to tan quickly rather than burn:

“So the past 48 hours has been pretty crazy for me. I didn’t expect to get the response I have from my post. I want to say a huge thankyou for everyone writing to me, I appreciate your support and kind words. It’s lovely to see that majority of people writing to me are against online bullying. In regards to the photo I posted I can totally see both sides of the ballpark now. I saw no problem with the photo I chose to post because there was no inappropriate parts showing, just Winters side profile. I just want to say though that I do respect even the people who have wrote into me disagreeing with my post but I thank you for going about it in a tasteful way and not shaming my child for her skin colour. We are of Aboriginal decent and we are proud of our heritage. I have learnt a lot from this experience and I won’t change the way I post but I will be more mindful of what I choose to share online. Thankyou once again for connecting with me and sharing your own stories. I’m making my way through my messages and will get back to every one of you.”

Look, nothing is keeping this family off the beach:

They got an umbrella, they got sunscreen—now everyone else should get a life!

These Animals Are So Ready To Spend Their Summer At The Beach

I’ve never taken my dog to the beach, but I suspect she would like it. There would be things to smell and places to dig holes, and that’s really all it takes to make her happy. There are also good places to sleep, but she can really do that anywhere.

The point is that beaches are a perfect place for dogs, so it is no wonder that no one has ever seen an unhappy dog there. Every dog is constantly either playing or sleeping, and only sleeping long enough for them to be reenergized for the next round of playing.

So take your dogs to the beach this summer. They’ll thank you later.

This Gigantic Creature Washed Up On A Beach And People Think It's A Sea Monster

This Gigantic Creature Washed Up On A Beach And People Think It’s A Sea Monster

Whenever there’s something scary or crazy that pops up on the internet, there’s always a bunch of people who are ready and willing to believe it.

I totally get it. Look, keeping it real, for the most part, absolutely sucks. Because when you look at the math of life, it’s nothing but depressing. So I get why people create fantastical scenarios and situations. It’s why we love larger than life people. Hell, it’s one of the main reasons Donald Trump got elected – he was the more entertaining candidate.

But please people, don’t fall for this video that’s been going around of people claiming an unknown sea monster washed up on an Indonesian beach shore.

Because as freaky as this thing is, it’s apparently the decomposing body of a whale.

Indonesian soldiers who happened upon the enormous corpse are calling it a giant squid.

“A giant squid has washed ashore in the island of Seram, in Hulung village. From the looks of it, it’s unclear how many people can fit in this creature. If it eats people. This is a rare animal. It’s length is more or less 10 meters…Fifteen.” 

YouTuber Patasiwa Kumbang Amalatu uploaded a video of the creature himself. He thinks it’s a humpback whale.

 “This is a humpback whale. These aren’t tusks. This is its mouth, but it’s covered with decomposed skin.” 

Some news outlets have claimed that the creature has tusks, but Amalatu has uploaded multiple videos that counter it’s just a whale’s exposed jawbone.

And now he’s got American marine biologists backing him up.

Other videos show the body decomposing further in the sun.

Super gross, but just remember: if there’s a giant decomposing dead blob of flesh that’s managed to beach itself on a shore, it’s probably just a dead whale. Always bet on the dead whale. (h/t vice)
