Bath Bomb Turns Woman Into A 'Smurf' And The Photos Are Hilarious

Every holiday and birthday, you’re guaranteed to get at least one bath bomb from a relative who had no idea what to get you. Bath bombs are up there with socks in the generic gift category. Apart from turning the bathtub into a slip and slide for the next person who has to use it, they’re a pretty safe gift. 

At least that’s what Twitter user Rebekah Butler probably thought. She recently picked up a galaxy bath bomb from Kroger that she claims had some unintended effects.

Yes, she’s a smurf now. 

In a caption alongside the tweet, Butler claimed that the bath bomb “dyed” her skin. “I was in the bath for a solid 5 minutes and now I am a freaking SMURF,” she added. “So to everyone I snapchat, enjoy looking at my forehead till I am no longer a smurf.”

Butler wrote in a reply that she was shocked at first, but that she quickly got over it. 

And it does seem to be coming off pretty quickly. 

Butler says she’s going to contact Kroger about the bath bomb, and hopefully she’ll keep us all updated. 

People found the incident hilarious, of course. 

As it turns out, there’s a lot of GIFs that are perfect for this situation.

Questionable Photos Of Lewis Hamilton Emerge Online After Transphobic Statement

Lewis Hamilton is someone I had never heard of in my life before he was getting raked over the coals for shaming his nephew on Instagram. 

That’s because he’s British and races cars, which are two things I have no connection to. I do, however, hate when people are mean to kids, especially when the kids are just having an innocent good time. 

Hamilton has deleted the video that sparked the initial controversy, but it’s been captured for posterity online. In it, he yells at his nephew for asking for a princess dress for Christmas. The boy seems to be having fun, and giggles shyly when his uncle turns the camera on him. 

It’s hard to know if he is damaged by this interaction, but it kinda sucks that Hamilton is working out his gender issues on a kid for no reason. Yelling at someone won’t make them not want the princess dress; it’ll only make them feel bad about it. 

Hamilton has since apologized, but many people think it’s too little too late.

So they’ve brought out the big guns—the photos of Hamilton in his own ridiculous outfits.

Now I know four things about Hamilton. He’s British, he races cars, he is kinda homophobic, and he’s a godawful dresser. Which everyone on Twitter is having fun pointing out:

Other users just blasted Hamilton in general. 

Look, I don’t care what Lewis Hamilton wears anymore than I care if a boy wants to wear a dress. Even if he does look like a big tasteless doof. 

Leave the kids alone, ya doof.

This Candid Picture Of The Royal Family Is Cuter Than The Official Photos

Every since Prince Harry’s engagement to actress Meghan Markle was announced, Royal Family fever has swept America. He’s marrying that beautiful woman from Suits! She is one of us, only far more cool!

I’ve never particularly cared about the UK’s symbolic figureheads. A queen? Who cares. Being born into the royalty just seems like the luck of the draw. Being married into it, however, is an accomplishment. Taking an interest in what’s going on with queenie and her crew is new to me, but plenty of people have made it into their hobby. A mom named Karen Murdoch got up early on Christmas day to catch a glimpse of the royals leaving St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, where they traditionally celebrate. 

And she caught the perfect picture:

Don’t they look incredible? You really couldn’t have staged a better image. And people tried. As a comparison, here’s a picture from Getty:

It’s not a bad image, but so stiff and formal in comparison to Murdoch’s candid. Her picture has gone wildly viral, and the replies are full of people congratulating her and also telling her to be careful. Everyone wants a piece of this photo’s action.

Murdoch told the Telegraph that she took the picture on an iPhone and all she did was shout the season’s greetings at the group to get those smiles.

“I’m just very bubbly by nature and I was with my daughter and I got a bit excitable, I suppose,” she said. “I was just sort of shouting and I just went, ‘Merry Christmas!’ like an idiot. I was fan-girling.”

She was there with her daughter, and hopes she’ll get some money for the image to send her kid to school. I hope she does, too! It’s fed my interest in Markle’s upcoming nuptials for another day.

The early bird gets the pic.

Astronauts Just Tweeted Photos Of California Wildfires From Space–And They're Unsettling

It’s hard to miss the news that huge swathes of Los Angeles and Ventura counties in California are currently on fire. Extreme winds have been blowing smoke and ash across residential areas, and hundreds of thousands of people have been evacuated. Footage of people driving down the 405 as the hills burn around them look like the freaking apocalypse. 

If there is a group of people you’d guess are unaware of the natural disaster consuming the West Coast, it’d probably be astronauts. They’ve either got their eyes on the stars, or they’re floating around in space, so far from Earth and all her troubles. 

Actually, it turns out they have a pretty unique perspective on what’s going on down here, because their cameras capture everything:

Astronauts and space stations all over the world are capturing images from the sky of how California looks right now, and it’s freaking scary. The streams of smoke are covering almost the entire city and more. The pictures will make you wonder how anyone is managing to survive down there:

Someone even tried to label all the neighborhoods, to give people a more specific idea of who was under all that ash and smoke:

Who knew this place looked even more frightening from far away.

Disappointing Photos Of Crowd At Dallas Cowboys Game Emerge Online–And People Aren't Impressed

I’m from Jersey and over here, pretty much everybody’s a Giants fan. Sure you have the occasional Jets fan who swears their team is the best, but they’re a rarity.

But even up here in the dirty-Jers, you’ll drive by a few houses flying flags that rep the Cowboys. I mean, I never knew we had such a sizable demographic of Dallas lovers in the tri-state area, so much so that people have even written about this strange phenomenon, but it turns out that Cowboys fans are everywhere.

Everywhere except this recent primetime game they had against the Redskins.

The teams’ middling records probably had something to do with the fact that there weren’t many people in attendance, but some people on Twitter had different theories.

But it was enough of a disparity from the other games that people definitely took notice. Surely traffic couldn’t have been that bad?

And this Eagles fan couldn’t help but gloat.

It just wasn’t a good look for the mighty franchise.

Fans were saying that they’ve been to high school football games with higher turnouts and honestly, I have too.

Are fair weather fans to blame?

Is there honor in standing by a losing team? Probably. I mean, think about how happy you’ll be once your franchise actually wins the championship.

Remember Bill Murray’s face when the Cubs finally took home the pennant after so many decades?

I’d say it’s worth having some loyalty. So you’ll see me ecstatic when the Raiders win the Super Bowl. The Steelers would be nice, too.

Photographer Hides Pennywise The Clown In Sister's Engagement Photos

Siblings do two things for each other. Help out one another, and prank each other. Jesse McLaren just found a way to do both. 

His sister asked him to take her engagement photos, which he happily did, but he also added a little something extra in there. See if you can spot it. 

McLaren added Pennywise the Clown to every photo and so far the happy couple has not yet noticed. You know who did notice though? The internet. 

Although some people found something even scarier in the photos. 

Congratulations to the happy couple. May you have many years of joy and revenge ahead!

Boston News Reporter Shares First Photos Of Vegas Terrorist's Arsenal Of Weapons

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock’s horrific act of mass murder has yielded pain, sorrow and many many unanswered questions. 

On Tuesday, we got a bit more information, as the first images of the arsenal of weapons assembled by the gunman emerged online. 

Jacqui Heinrich, a Boston reporter for FOX 25 TV shared an exclusive first look at some of Paddock’s guns on Twitter:

Since then, more images have trickled out from the horrific scene of the crime:

Reports indicate that at least 23 firearms, some ammo, a bipod, optics, and a hammer — that was most likely used to smash out the windows — were strewn about the luxury room, which towered 32 floors above the concert venue, where 58 innocents died and 489 people were injured.

In addition, authorities recovered 19 firearms plus explosives and several thousand rounds of ammunition from Paddock’s home in Mesquite, Nevada and found several pounds of ammonium nitrate, which is used to make explosives, in Paddock’s car.

Law enforcement officials had hoped to learn more about Paddock’s motives from his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, who has returned from The Philippines and is cooperating with the investigation. In a statement she said that Paddock “never said anything to me, or took any action that I was aware of, that I understood in any way to be a warning that something horrible like this was going to happen.”

“It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone.”

Woman's Side By Side Photos Prove Clothing Sizes Are Meaningless

Women’s clothing sizes are ridiculous, and pretty much a roll of the dice. Men have it pretty easy, dealing with small, medium, or large, while women have varying measurements that don’t really seem to match up between different brands.

Instagram user Mira Hirsch, a body-positive activist from South Africa, knows this pain all too well. While shopping recently, she found two pairs of pants marked the same size, but which had very different results…

And people seem to agree, with the post attracting more than 3,500 likes in 24 hours. Commenters were very supportive:

These Photos From A Clergy Fashion Catalog Are The Best Thing On The Internet Today

I’m Catholic, so I must beg, Father, for you to please forgive me for what I am about to do—namely, show you stills from a clergy fashion catalog that bring all new meaning to the phrase “dad bods.”

British Twitter user Abi Bleach found these stills from the Wippell’s catalog, which has been outfitting clergymen since, literally, the 18th century (Europe is SO OLD, y’all).

And all I’ll say is that the blonde priest in these pictures is inspiring more than one deadly sin in me. 

Perhaps even more delightful than these pictures is the response from some actual clerics. 

A BREASTFEEDING CASSOCK. Plus, there is this crushable cleric selfie.

Actor Jason Segel Is Taking Photos Next To Small Doors And People Can't Stop Laughing

It’s hard to say exactly where actor Jason Segel is right now. I’m guessing Europe. Maybe England or Belgium. Somewhere that a lot of house were built hundreds and hundreds of years ago, where being tall meant breaking five feet. At 6’4″, Segel isn’t going to fit into any of these tiny doors without bending over, but the pics he’s been taking of his wanderings through Tiny Towns are amazing:

When a bit is good, it’s good:

What a great series! We’re really hoping it continues throughout whatever vacation or shoot he is on, but all of Segel’s photos are pretty good. 

Here he is looking small, for once, next to this giant artichoke:

But the doors are the big hit:

And all the How I Met Your Mother gifs we can handle:

Marshall did hang around a lot of doors, come to think of it.
