These Parents Wrote The World's Funniest Letter From The Tooth Fairy

Henry Warren’s son Sam recently lost a tooth, and Warren decided the tooth fairy needed to respond in a way that encouraged his son to get better at dental hygiene. The resulting letter will prepare Sam for a lifetime of dealing with dodgy gym membership contracts.

After the ingenious letter went viral on Twitter, Henry Warren spoke to BuzzFeed about Sam’s reaction to the tooth fairy’s correspondence. Apparently, Sam was “rather chastened,” but “one is never too young to be exposed to petty bureaucracy.” After all, the Warren family is British, and it apparently is the British way.

“Whilst the tone may have come across as a touch harsh, we think people should take the time to appreciate how hard it is being a tooth fairy in Theresa May’s Britain,” said Henry. “The Department of Tooth Fairies (DoTF) has not been immune to austerity. Barry’s hours are long, the pay is poor, (the free dental is obviously a plus) but overall it’s a tough gig.”

“We’re sure that Barry was just processing the tooth through the proper channels,” Henry said. “He’s a stickler. One has to be these days.”

From the Twitter response, it seems like Henry is inspiring other parents to take similar action. Pity the poor children who will get similar letters from pedantic tooth fairies in the future.

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.

*Gives self the sign of the cross.*

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!

These 35 Haircut Fails Will Make You Never Want To Try A New Hairdo

I’ve had the same haircut for 27 years and I have no idea how to explain it to people. The closest I can come is just “standard male haircut,” which most people seem to understand, but is still pretty vague. 

This causes some problems whenever I go to the barber and they ask me what I want. I don’t want to say “standard male haircut,” because they might think I am making fun of their profession. So instead I just say, “Uh, shorter.” 

Thankfully, that always does the trick and I leave with exactly what I wanted. Still, I am always afraid that my requests are so vague that I’ll walk away looking like one of these guys.

Oprah Looks Incredible As A Space Witch In These New 'Wrinkle In Time' Photos

Entertainment Weekly published the first stills from the upcoming A Wrinkle In Time today, and it’s got us so excited we wish we could make a tesseract so we could see it TODAY. 

In case you haven’t been following, the upcoming movie based on your favorite YA novel about inter-dimensional physics is being directed by Selma and 13th director Ava DuVernay, who with this picture will be the first African-American woman to direct a movie with a budget of over $ 100 million. And not only does the movie have an actual auteur director, the cast—which includes Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, and Chris Pine—is basically perfect. This movie could be really good, y’all!

The plot follows Meg Murray, an awkward teenage girl (played by 12 Years A Slave actress Storm Reid) who partners with three eccentric old maids to find her missing father (Pine). It helps that those three women—Mrs. Whatsit (Witherspoon), Mrs. Who (Kaling), and Mrs. Which (Winfrey)—turn out to be intergalactic shapeshifters who can travel through time and space. 

So yeah, it made sense to cast the three women in Hollywood you’d most want to have as your aunts to play these roles, as DuVernay explained to the magazine—especially the no-brainer of casting Oprah.

“I mean, when you’re trying to cast the wisest woman in the world, what’s the question? You go and you call her and you’re glad that you have her number on speed dial,” DuVernay said. “[The character] is so much of what she teaches and shared through her shows over the years, through her magazine and OWN, about owning your light and conquering darkness and how we have to power ourselves through this life in a certain way and look out for each other. She dropped into the character so well, but it’s also Oprah. When we see her in Henrietta Lacks, she’s not Oprah to me. When I saw her in The Butler, she became Gloria to me. But in this, because of the things that Mrs. Which says, her Oprah-ness is really helpful.”

The Entertainment Weekly slideshow also features photos of Pine and Reid—Reid looks like an adorable, perfect Meg Murray—if you wanna join me in nerding out more.

And oh: there’s gonna be a trailer real soon.

These Friends Have Been Recreating This One Photo For Over 30 Years

John Wardlaw, Mark Rumer, Dallas Burney, John Molony, and John Dickson got their photo snapped in 1982 while hanging out on vacation near Copco Lake in Northern California. The group was from Santa Barbara and partying like young men do, all only 19. What do teens do? Set the self-timer, of course, because even in the early eighties, teens were obsessed with selfies.

 In 2007, the group told the Santa Barbara News-Press that they knew this picture was special.

“Once we took it and saw the photo, we said, ‘We should come back and take it in five years.’ I said, ‘We have to vow to do it every five years,’ ” said Wardlaw, whose grandparent’s cabin was hosting this wild group. “We all thought, ‘In 20 years, what if we all don’t know each other?’ By vowing to take a photo every five years, it would be a way to stay in touch.”

And it actually worked. Every five years they meet at Siskiyou County lake, though they don’t have quite the same luxury of time that they once did. Most are family men with busy jobs and lifestyles. But they made it work.

“Mark drove all night just to get there this year,” said Dickson. “He arrived at 3 a.m. the day of the photo.”

There are seven photos all together, taken in 1982, 1987, 1992, 1997, 2002, 2007, and 2012, but to be honest I was having trouble figuring out which one was taken when on their Facebook page. These fellas didn’t age much:

The group tries their hardest to recreate the image exactly, from sunglasses to jar shape, but occasionally things have slipped in the intervening years. It’s become quite a production, sometimes taking hours to set up. The lesson here is that if you want to take a yearly portrait with your crew, make sure it’s simple:

For 2017, the three original shirtless men committed to baring their midriffs for maximum accuracy. Their friendship is strong and so are their bods!

These Siblings Recreating Their Family Photos Will Make You Want To Host A Reunion

If you have a sibling, you know that shared memories are your most precious gift. They are also your most hilarious gift, because when you think back on what you used to do, it seems really crazy. That’s why the “family photo recreation” genre is so good. It takes the past and highlights how ridiculous we all were, even when we were being cute:

Facebook page “A Different Type Of Art” compiled an excellent post of some of the greatest sibling recreation pics of all time, making it clear that you can grow old, but still not grow up:

Though the best part of the post may be all the people sharing their less viral versions in the comments. Recreation photos are now a family tradition:

Hmm, what can I get my family to do at Thanksgiving dinner? I have six months to plan, so it better be good.

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.

These Guys Are Hiring A 'BBQ Dad' From Craigslist For Their Summer Parties

With summer holidays coming up, you’ll be going to a lot of barbecues. Hopefully, your dad, or another dad you know, will be manning the grill at said barbecue in order to tinge the meat with that perfect dad char—but if not, make like a couple of 20-something Spokane, Washington jokesters and try to hire a “BBQ Dad” over Craigslist.

The post has been deleted, but to help these guys get their barbecue dad, we will happily reprint what the ad says here:

While most of us know how to operate a grill, none of us are prepared to fill the role of ‘BBQ Dad.’

The party will take place June 17th from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

What does a “BBQ Dad” do, exactly? Duties include:

Grilling hamburgers and hot dogs (whilst drinking beer, of course)

Bringing your own grill (subject to change, but meat will be provided by party planners)

Referring to attendees as Big Guy, Chief, Sport, Champ, etc.

Talk about dad things like lawnmowers, building your own deck, Jimmy Buffet, etc.

The perfect candidate will meet the following qualifications:

A minimum of 18 years experience as a father

A minimum of 10 years grilling experience

An appreciation of cold beer on a hot summer day

*Bonus points if your name is Bill, Randy or Dave.

Apparently, the guys who put up this ad have already received some job applications from BBQ Dad-wannabes. “His name is Jerry but he said we can call him Dave or Bill,” one of the Craigslist posters told a local news outlet. “There was one guy Stan who sent us a message but then he stopped replying.” But they’re really holding out for Bill Murray, who honestly would probably do this…This seems like his kind of thing.

Also, in case you’re wondering, according to the Huffington Post, these pranksters would like to be identified as “The Boys,” and they found the photo that they used in the ad by picking one of the first things that came up when they put “grill dad” into Google Image search. Their post went so viral that they eventually met the guy from the image.

Their stock photo grill dad is perfect, but all of the image search results truly speak to me.

 Regardless of age, creed, or polo shirt color, all dads love the grill.

These Goth Lattes Redefine What 'Black' Coffee Is

You’ve heard of goth ice cream and, let’s be honest, it looks absolutely delicious. But what about goth lattes?

That’s right, you can totally get the blackest of the black coffee imaginable with these new, brutal caffeinated delights.

Technically, it’s called a charcoal latte, so don’t start playing The Sisters of Mercy just yet.

But on second thought, you totally could. It’s not like there’s anything necessarily keeping you from calling these yummy-looking cups of coffee “goth.” 

These darker than dark lattes are currently all the rage in cafes throughout England and Australia.

And as it turns out, they don’t just look cool and taste delicious – they also pack some health benefits.

Brit + Co says that ingesting activated charcoal can do wonders for helping to detox your digestive system. Which sounds like fancy talk for helping you poop healthily.

Like any self-respecting latte, these Instagrammable dark beverages are topped off with wonderful, white foam designs, giving them a very yin and yang look.

I mean look at how pretty that is. And pretty is not a word that I would usually use to describe coffee.

It could also help make a fashion statement.

Probably peering out the window, wondering why he settled for regular old boring coffee all his life.
