This Student Is Dressing Like A Christmas Tree For The Entire Semester

Kelsey Hall posted a photo of her wearing this adorably ridiculous Christmas tree outfit, complete with an indifferent expression about donning such a cheery garment.

With the photo, she penned a vow to wear the tree to all of her classes for the rest of the semester if it hit a thousand retweets.

And, at the time of writing, Hall’s original post hit over 4,600 RTs, so…yeah.

Hall wasn’t all that excited about keeping her promise.

She was out to dinner when she realized she had to put up or shut up, and her friend caught a snap of her incredulous face.

Again, she really, really didn’t want to go through with it.

But her adoring public egged her on…

…and Kelsey had no intention of ever backing out of the bet.

She ultimately pulled through, and there’s plenty of on-campus evidence to prove it.

A fact that she wants everyone to be aware of.

Students were ecstatic at the prospect of seeing Hall rocking her Christmas class outfit in person.

And, in the true spirit of Christmas, she made it happen.

Americans Get Their First Look At K-Pop Group BTS–And They Like What They See

If you’re a longtime BTS fan, your hipster moment has finally arrived.

The Korean pop boy band supergroup performed at this year’s AMAs and basically stole the show. 

Major media outlets were going gaga for the band’s performance.

And it wasn’t long before people were mimicking their moves, either.

But for fans of the band, who probably got eye-rolls from their pals who “aren’t into K-Pop,” they knew BTS was going to crush it before they ever even took the stage.

Their show also earned them a bunch of new fans as well.

Also Twitter was geeking out over their dance skills.

If you didn’t see their performance you can check it out here:

We're Getting A Glimpse Of What Baby Porgs May Look Like In The New 'Star Wars' Film–And Yiiikes

When the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer hit the Internet, people got pretty excited over Porgs. The latest addition to the fauna of the Star Wars galaxy, you may think very differently of them after seeing what a baby Porg looks like. 

During an appearance on The Star Wars Show, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy suggested that we’d be seeing their infant form very soon. And thanks to a Japanese toy site, we now know that baby Porgs are absolutely hideous…

Kenan Thompson Is Starting A Sketch Show For Kids That Sounds A Lot Like 'All That'

Kenan Thompson is teaming up with other All That alumni for a new children’s sketch comedy show called SKOOGLE—and don’t be surprised if you end up watching, too.

Thompson is the creator, executive producer, and voice of the title character of the show, who apparently is a digital assistant like Siri or Alexa, according to The Daily News. Kids will round out the rest of the cast as “entrepreneur inventors.”

Thompson is joined in producing the show by his former All That castmate Josh Server, and Albie Hecht, who was part of the team that developed All That, will serve as executive producer. The show will air on the new media brand “pocket.watch.” 

“Kenan Thompson is a comedic genius,” said Hecht, who is also pocket.watch’s chief content officer, in a statement. “At Nickelodeon, I witnessed first-hand Kenan and his fellow cast members’ ability to turn everyday scenarios into hilarious adventures.”

If they manage to match the genius of Pierre Escargot, I’ll be thrilled.

The President Gets Fed Like A Teenageer In The White House And, Well, Blech

The President Gets Fed Like A Teenageer In The White House And, Well, Blech

Similar to his thoughts on environmental issues, Trump is insouciant about his diet.

The president powers up on Big Macs, KFC, Domino’s, and he washes it all down with his favorite elixir, Diet Coke. Which is interesting, since he once tweeted this:

twitter

twitter

The president vouches for his love of fast food because the companies  maintain a high standard of hygiene. Notorious for bristling at  double-dipping partygoers, Trump has always been obsessed with a high  level of cleanliness. 

“One bad hamburger, and you can destroy  McDonald’s. One bad hamburger and you take Wendy’s and all these other  places and they’re out of business,” he told a pre-adversarial Anderson  Cooper at a CNN town-hall-style meeting early last year. 

“I like cleanliness, and I think you’re better off going there than maybe some place that you have no idea where the food is coming from.”

nyt

He waxed poetic about Mickey D’s. “The Big Macs are great. The Quarter Pounder. It’s great stuff,” he praised.

But now that he has his meals served at the White House, he still insists on “clean” food.A Time‘s  report on the White House’s after hours described a scene in the dining  room. “The waiters know well Trump’s personal preferences. As he  settles down, they bring him a Diet Coke, while the rest of us are served water, with the Vice President sitting at one end of the table,” read the excerpt.

“With the salad course, Trump is served what appears to be Thousand Island dressing instead of the creamy vinaigrette for his guests. When the chicken arrives, he is the only one given an extra dish of sauce,” the report read.

“At the dessert course, he gets two scoops of vanilla ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, instead of the single scoop for everyone else,” the report continued. One  would be sadly mistaken to think that a teenager was present at the  table, when in fact, the needs of a 70-year-old’s palate was being  tended to. 

The report added, “The tastes of Pence are also tended to. Instead of the pie, he gets a fruit plate.”

While on the campaign trail last year, he would often show his reverence for Colonel Sanders.

It appears as if the president’s tastes haven’t evolved much since  moving into the White House. There seems to be as much junk going into  his mouth, as there is spewing forth.

Mourning Dog Takes Care Of Stuffed Animals Like Her Own Puppies

HELP, MY HEART!! Look at this good dog. She’s trying so hard to take care of her puppies, but her puppies are three stuffed toys:

BuzzFeed reports that teen Twitter user Xavier Hernandez shared an image of his dog with her replacement family, captioning it, “So my dog was pregnant and she lost all 3 of her puppies so my mom bought her these toys and she thinks they’re her puppies.” Xavier told them that the dog’s name is Twinkle, and her puppies died during their birth. She seemed depressed after her loss, and Xavier’s mom gave her the three toys thinking it might help comfort her. Apparently, she bonded to them right away.

“She didn’t do anything without them and wouldn’t let anyone touch them,” explained Xavier. Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, my face is melting faster than the polar ice caps. On the brightish side, Xavier does seem to think Twinkle is doing better, and taking care of her toys has lifted her spirits. But it’s still freaking killing everyone on the Internet:

Twinkle, Twinkle, little star, you are the best dog by far. Cuddle your baby toys close, cuddle your doggos closer.

Here's What It's Really Like To Be A Bouncer

While you probably spent many years of your youth viewing them as the muscular barriers between you and a night of underage drinking, bouncers are the unsung heroes of Saturday nights. 

Shockingly, dealing with crowds of intoxicated people hoping to get into a bar or club can isn’t always rewarding — but the gig usually results in good stories. 

Bouncers opened up to Whisper to share some of their best confessions about the job.

We Just Learned What Owls Look Like Without Feathers And There's No Going Back

Generally speaking, knowledge is power. Why not learn as much as possible to become a more interesting, useful, and education person? You never know when certain information will come in handy. 

This clichéd wisdom, however, has its limits. Perhaps there are some areas we really don’t need to explore. There are things that can’t be unlearned once we’ve seen and absorbed them… And that knowledge may haunt us forever. 

Thanks to the Internet, we now know way too much about owls. 

It all began when entertainment writer and Twitter phenom Dana Schwartz noticed a particularly plump bird resting on boyfriend’s air conditioner in New York City. 

But the vigilant people of Twitter would not tolerate such bird body shaming without all the facts. 

All birds are beautiful, after all. 

That’s when Schwartz came to her senses. “I realized I had no idea what owls looked like without feathers,” Schwartz told Distractify.

So, she did some research: “The answer is…nightmares” she said. 

Graciously, she decided to share her important findings with the public. 

These findings left everyone rattled. So Twitter tried to make sense of it all.  

Who knew that cute chubby, owls were actually mutant dinosaurs of our nightmares?

Schwartz, herself, is not deterred. “I think they’re even cuter [now],” she says. 

Tragically, this information no one asked for spawned more photos of creepy, naked animals to haunt our nightmares. 

Cute animals will never be the same. You’re welcome. 

While we can’t promise any more frightening factoids about owls, we can suggest you absorb more of Schwartz’s wisdom in her book And We’re Off, available for preorder on Amazon

This Woman Named Barbara Looks Exactly Like Barb From 'Stranger Things' And People Are Freaking Out

Perhaps one of the greatest injustices of Netflix original shows was the apparent demise of Barb in Stranger Things. No apologies for the spoiler alert — it’s your fault for not watching yet). 

The one character who seems to have a good head on her shoulders (and who doesn’t get caught up in personal drama) perishes! Naturally, the good people who sit on couches and binge watch new Netflix shows were pretty outraged by this development. 

But one Redditor has some evidence that is making Stranger Things fans feel a little bit better… Perhaps Barb lives and is thriving today!

Redditor jujuness uploaded the following photo of a coworker and it is blowing everyone’s minds.

And it gets crazier. The photo is captioned:

My coworker brought in her senior picture from the 80’s. Also her name is Barbra and goes by Barb.

HER NAME IS BARB. GUYS, WHAT DOES THIS MEAN???

We knew that season 1 couldn’t be the end of Barb!

The photo has blown up overnight; the Barb doppelganger received over 400,000 views. 

Reddit was relieved to hear the news, especially after the months of uncertainty about Barb’s fate. 

I think we finally found Barb.

Oh thank god she’s safe. Can’t believe it, but she’s a tough cookie.

She was in accounting the whole time.

This calls into question those disclaimers are the beginning…

“Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead is purely coincidental…”
Yeah, right!

caoliq

This level of similarity is no coincidence. 

Do the producers of the show know about this??

Someone tweet this shit at the official ST account.

They might have to change the storyline, now.

Steve Harvey Meets Contestant That Looks Exactly Like Him On Family Feud

Steve Harvey and Family Feud were a match made in heaven. His reactions were so great that people began uploading them to the net before Family Feud decided to start uploading clips themselves and prompted those that have never bothered with the show to scroll through footage for hours at a time.

His reactions to the over the top answers some contestants give him are really what everyone looks forward to.  With each new episode that airs, you can see his faith in mankind diminish more and more, along with his will to continue hosting the show.

On a recent episode that aired, something interesting happened; one of the contestants shared an uncanny resemblance to the host, all the way down to his signature mustache and inquiring facial expression.  

The guest insisted that he should be compensated to some degree for constantly being mistaken for Steve Harvey, who countered by pointing out one very important difference between the two.  Take a look:
