27-Year-Old Woman Gives Life Advice On Her Deathbed And It's Seriously Inspiring

When 27-year-old Holly Butcher was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare form of cancer that affects mostly young people, she found herself facing mortality at far too young an age. On January 4th, the Grafton, Australia, woman passed away.  

But before she died, Holly penned a letter which she asked her family to post on her Facebook account once she was gone. 

The letter has since gone viral, with more than 85,000 shares and 61,000 likes. And it’s easy to see why: 

Holly starts by discussing what it’s been like to face death at the age of 27. 

She then offers some touching advice.

What incredible advice.

Someone Replaced President Trump With His Terrible Disney Animatronic And It's Hilarious

In case you didn’t hear the news earlier this month, Walt Disney World’s Hall of Presidents reopened after months of delay with a new addition — President Donald Trump. And the animatronic was immediately mocked online for looking absolutely nothing like President Trump. 

So Twitter user Born Miserable decided to Photoshop President Trump out of several photos and replace him with his robot counterpart in what may be the best series of tweets on the Internet. 

“I’ve done several Trump Photoshops and when I saw that animatronic figure, I just thought it would make more sense to put it in place of him — just about as much of a human being as he is,” Born Miserable told Mashable

Somehow, it makes this photo look even more evil…

Even a robot needs a break every now and then.

There was the time President Trump mocked a disabled reporter…

These are the best photoshops ever. And social media users seem to agree…

That’s one way to round off the year.

Man Performs A Mashup Of The 'Home Alone' Soundtrack Using Only His Voice—And It's Impressive

Personally, I find acapella singing incredibly goofy, but that’s probably because I don’t have whatever level of confidence you need to make drum sounds with your mouth. Acapella super star Mike Tompkins has got a whole lot of that secret ingredient, plus a talent for giving the people what they want.

This Christmas, he’s giving us the soundtrack written by famous composer John Williams for Home Alone. It’s funny that I rarely think of this soundtrack at all, but as soon as I hit play I sighed, “Ahhh, this is what the holidays sound like.” Weird how music infiltrates your brain. 

Let Tompkins bring that nostalgic magic to you, with just thousands of instrumental mouth sounds:

Yup, that definitely sounds like music!

Most live acapella groups are pretty accomplished at layering sounds to sound like a band, but Tompkins creations require a little technological assistance. In a behind the scenes exposé, you can see him working with literally hundreds and hundreds of tracks to make his unique sound.

He also shared a glimpse into what it’s like to do all this work:

Tompkins has been doing this for years, and has a huge following of acapella-enthusiasts. This is truly the golden age of not playing instruments.

Thanks for the holiday cheer, Tompkins, and for introducing me to a YouTube world I had never yet dared to enter. I might like acapella now?!

This Black Guy Posted A 'Guess Who's Coming Dinner Service' On Craigslist And It's Hilarious

The holidays are great and I absolutely love this time of year, but even I am sick and tired of people who ask the same old boring family questions.

What are you doing with your life? Are you seeing anyone? How’s your job going? Et cetera, et cetera. It’s even worse when you’ve got an annoyingly traditional family that’s borderline backwards.

Well if you wished there was a way to get back at them and mess with them real good this Holiday season, then you may want to take up Wesley Peterson on his “Guess who’s coming to dinner” family service.

People were cracking up at Peterson’s post.

Others think he’s worth way more than a holiday hire.

But the real question is: did anyone take Peterson up on his offer?

Here’s hoping someone did. Hell, I’m married and not a white woman from a borderline racist family and I want to take him up on his offer.

Conservatives Protest Starbucks' Newest Holiday Cups, And It's Not About Jesus This Time

It’s just not the holiday season without a Starbucks cup controversy.

This year, conservatives are pointing out a very small detail of the current Starbucks cup design:

You see those two hands, top left? Well, the Christian right is CONVINCED those hands belong to lesbians and that the cups are pushing a gay agenda.

Oddly enough, Buzzfeed News seems to be responsible for drawing attention to this.

After Starbucks released a video featuring a lesbian couple…

…people happily tweeted that they believed the hand-holders on the cups are the lesbians from the ad:

Guess we will see how this controversy evolves over the holiday season.

People Are Rising Up Against Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Wrappers–And It's About Time

John Haltiwanger is a reporter for Newsweek who specializes in foreign affairs and defense.

And, now, candy. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are among the finest of the Halloween delights, a prized commodity when it comes to post-trick-or-treat trading. And yet, they have a flaw. Not a fatal flaw, but something that’s bothered us for the 89 years this candy has been on the market. 

Seriously. What the heck, Reese’s? Why do your cups have such a hard time letting go of the pointless paper wrappers? How has this been an issue for longer than Mickey Mouse’s career?

Maybe for their centennial Reese’s will finally give us a working paper wrapper.

Twitter Comedian Uses President Trump's Own Words Against Him–And It's Not Good

Hurricane Maria has devastated Puerto Rico, but President Trump didn’t bother to mention the storm for five days. Puerto Ricans are standing in line for food, water, and gas, and 95% of the island remains without electricity. On Friday, San Juan mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz unleashed a withering, emotional plea for immediate help.

Cruz said, “We are dying. What we are going to see is something close to a genocide.”

Not surprisingly, President Trump took the mayor’s desperate cry for help as personal criticism, because this administration has no concept of compassion, empathy, or responsibility for fellow Americans.

Trump attacked Cruz in a series of childish tweets that alternate between defensive and aggressive:

That’s the mayor wading through a flood of sewage in her own city with a bullhorn looking for people in need.

Are we tired of winning yet?

Fiona The Hippo And Her Mom Finally Met And It's Too Cute

Fiona the hippo has been the pride and joy of the Cincinnati Zoo since she she came into the world in late January. Fiona was born prematurely, at only 29 pounds. The average weight for newborn hippos is 55 to 100 pounds. The zoo basically had to monitor her 24/7, which meant that her mother Bibi couldn’t do all the usual mother-daughter bonding stuff, like taking baths together:

Or explore her surroundings:

Or play dress up with her:

All the stuff her caretakers got to do:

Of  course, Bibi probably doesn’t care too much about any of that stuff. She’s a hippo. She likes swimming and food. But eventually, Fiona was slowly introduced to her parents, and it seemed to go well. Initially, there was a barrier for Fiona’s protection. She’s tiny, and they could just smoosh her without meaning to:

The Cincinnati Zoo announced Thursday that another milestone has been reached and it is, obviously, absolutely adorable:

Watching Bibi sit there calmly as Fiona snuggles and licks her will make you think of all the times your own mom tolerated you annoying her to death. The true test of love!

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)

Oklahoma Cops Offer To Test Meth To Make Sure It's 'Gluten-Free'

Oklahoma Cops Offer To Test Meth To Make Sure It’s ‘Gluten-Free’

It’s always awesome whenever cops have a sense of humor.

Maybe it’s because cops are such intimidating figures, and seeing those blue and red lights behind you when you’re driving is one of the worst feelings in the world, but when they remind the world that they’re people with a sense of humor, it feels pretty darn good.

Which might be why the Tecumseh, Oklahoma Police Department’s post about a hilarious way to crack down on crystal meth is so great.

They’re offering free “gluten tests” to citizens who bring in their meth to ensure their illegal narcotics are gluten-free.

Celiac disease is serious business and people afflicted with it can suffer from very painful and dangerous side effects from ingesting gluten. Unfortunately, gluten-free eating has been adopted by hipster foodies and is treated as a joke by pretty much everyone, including cops who are trying to bust meth-users.

And if you’re crazy enough to try meth, I think that whether or not it’s gluten-free would be the least of your problems. But if you’re tweaking on some crystal, who knows what your thought process is?
