This Dog Looked Sad Because No One Read To Him So The Internet Rallied To Help

Help, this story has made me cry three times and I haven’t even finished typing one sentence. Grab your tissue box, because you’re gonna need it.

A man named John Mueller posted a picture of Sting, an elderly former racing dog who is a certified therapy pup. Sting is part of a program called Paws to Read, which brings in children to read to shelter dogs so they can become socialized and used to people. That raises their chances of being adopted—okay, I am crying again.

Anyway, that day, no one showed up and Sting spent the afternoon at the library by himself:

In all honesty, Sting is probably fine. He’s a dog, just hanging out, and he has a forever home with Mueller. But his sad, long face has won the Internet’s heart and made him go instantly viral. Just look at it:

Todayreports that the outpouring of support for Sting has been insane. Because Mueller suggest people contact the small Minneapolis library, their phone has been ringing off the hook.

Ann Wahlstrom, children’s librarian at the Ramsey County Library in White Bear Lake, says its been amazing. Hopefully, it hasn’t also been really annoying?

“People are asking if we could hold the phone to Sting’s ear so they could read to him,” she said. “The whole staff of a Petco in California called to say they love Sting. It’s just amazing, the outpouring.”

The program isn’t just for the dogs, Wahlstrom explained, it’s for the kids to give them “a fun, nonthreatening place where they can practice their reading skills to a dog.”

If you’re not already weeping, check out this video of kids reading to dogs in shelters:

Sting has gotten so famous that his sessions are fully booked through April, and a second therapy dog who participates in the program, named Lacey, is also getting lost of belly rubs and stories read to her.

This happy ending still hasn’t ended the tears. My emotions!

Sting is fine! Sting is okay.

Hillary Clinton Read 'Fire And Fury' At The Grammys And People Have Mixed Feelings

Last night, James Corden hosted the Grammys, with Bruno Mars and Kendrick Lamar stealing the show, and most of the awards. As part of the show, Corden had celebrities including Cardi B, John Legend, DJ Khaled, Cher, and Snoop Dogg read extracts from Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury

Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House includes interviews with several people close to President Donald Trump, including former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and Sam Nunberg, a former campaign aide.  

Wolff claims that Bannon as calling Donald Trump Jr. “treasonous” and “unpatriotic” for attending a meeting with a Russian lawyer during the campaign. The book also claims that Trump “assured” his wife Melania that he would not win the 2016 election, and that Melaniawas in tears when he did.  

You should probably stick around until the end of the video, though. There’s a special guest amongst the celebrities. 

You can probably guess how those close to Donald Trump reacted to the segment…

Others seemed to enjoy the skit. 

While some didn’t seem to like the skit at all.

You Don't Need Special Glasses To Read These Very Funny Eclipse Tweets

The Great American Eclipse is happening NOW, people (or it already happened. I don’t know when you’re reading this!). And the great thing about this eclipse is that while in the past, people had to just go “wow” at how beautiful it all is, now we can livetweet the eclipse for all our friends, for it is 2017 and America is already great.

And yeah, the eclipse is stunning, but not even as much as this joke, let’s be real.

Or all the Twilight jokes.

Or when people noticed how weird all this eclipse fashion was. 

Just don’t stare at these tweets too hard.

Happy two-minute magic darkness y’all!

You Need To Be A Master Of The English Language To Be Able To Read This Entire Poem

As you may often be told if you know anyone who’s had to learn English as a second tongue, our language is a goddamn mess. So much so that in 1922, Dutch poet Gerard Nolste Trenité wrote a poem entitled The Chaos that contains around 800 of our irregularities, and is almost impossible to complete in one take.

Dearest creature in creation
Studying English pronunciation,
   I will teach you in my verse
   Sounds like corpse, corps, horse and worse.

I will keep you, Susy, busy,
Make your head with heat grow dizzy;
   Tear in eye, your dress you’ll tear;
   Queer, fair seer, hear my prayer.

Pray, console your loving poet,
Make my coat look new, dear, sew it!
   Just compare heart, hear and heard,
   Dies and diet, lord and word.

Sword and sward, retain and Britain
(Mind the latter how it’s written).
   Made has not the sound of bade,
   Saysaid, paypaid, laid but plaid.

Now I surely will not plague you
With such words as vague and ague,
   But be careful how you speak,
   Say: gush, bush, steak, streak, break, bleak ,

Previous, precious, fuchsia, via
Recipe, pipe, studding-sail, choir;
   Woven, oven, how and low,
   Script, receipt, shoe, poem, toe.

Say, expecting fraud and trickery:
Daughter, laughter and Terpsichore,
   Branch, ranch, measles, topsails, aisles,
   Missiles, similes, reviles.

Wholly, holly, signal, signing,
Same, examining, but mining,
   Scholar, vicar, and cigar,
   Solar, mica, war and far.

From “desire”: desirableadmirable from “admire”,
Lumber, plumber, bier, but brier,
   Topsham, brougham, renown, but known,
   Knowledge, done, lone, gone, none, tone,

One, anemone, Balmoral,
Kitchen, lichen, laundry, laurel.
   Gertrude, German, wind and wind,
   Beau, kind, kindred, queue, mankind,

This goes on for a lot longer, so if you’ve managed to make it this far, why not give yourself a rest and leave it to a professional?
