An Animal Shelter Turned A Chewed Up Dog Toy Into A Murder Mystery

Wisconsin animal shelter Fox Valley Humane Association is the host to an adorable chocolate lab named Hank, who is in love with his favorite toy, a stuffed animal named Fuzzy Purple Hippo.

That love was put in serious jeopardy, however, earlier this month, when Fuzzy Purple Hippo was discovered one morning with serious injuries. Animal shelter employees feared the worst: ATTEMPTED MURDER.

Luckily, Fuzzy Purple Hippo survived.

But the investigation into Fuzzy Purple Hippo’s apparent assault continued.

Fuzzy Purple Hippo, meanwhile, went to see a therapist. 

But even after Hank’s arrest, protesters asserted that the adorable four-year-old dog was innocent.

Investigators began to study the case further.

And what they found surprised everyone. Hank was not only innocent—he had been trying to save Fuzzy Purple Hippo’s LIFE!

Fuzzy Purple Hippo and Hank will presumably live happily ever after in their new family, but if you want to support the other critters living at Fox Valley, you can donate to the organization through its website.

An Artist Turned Obama And Biden Into Classic Dynamic Duos And We're In Love

Ever since the explosion of Joe Biden and Barack Obama memes, people can’t help but get inspired by the bromance these two men apparently share.

Not only has the surge in this meme’s popularity inspired a bevy of jokes, but it looks like it’s inspired some legitimate artwork as well.

Like Stylight’s “BROTUS” series of drawings that re-imagines Obama and Biden as classic dynamic duos.

Like Mario and Luigi.

Perhaps one of the most iconic duos of all time, Mario and Luigi are the iconic characters of Super Mario bros which is now the best-selling video game franchise ever. Every year countless people dress up as this colourful duo for Halloween and dress up parties alike. In 2013 Super Mario released a game entitled ‘Mario & Luigi: Dream Team’ so it only seemed fitting that we replace them with our fave dream team Joe and Barack.

Woody and Buzz.

Sheriff Woody and space ranger Buzz Lightyear start off on a bad foot when Woody loses his crown as Andy’s favourite toy to make room for the newer, shinier Buzz. However, throughout the Toy Story movies Buzz and Woody form a bond and eventually a strong alliance. The song ‘You’ve Got A Friend In Me’ is now synonymous with Toy Story and would make a pretty good soundtrack to all those Barack and Joe memes if you ask us!

Men in Black.

Elite secret agents K and J, played by Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith respectively, are members of the MiB, an extra terrestrial surveillance corporation. Responsible for managing alien ‘immigration’ and saving the world from intergalactic terrorism, the pair are dubbed the ‘Men in Black’ because of their non descript monochrome uniforms – not unlike Obama and Biden’s usual simple suited looks!

Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.

Ex-chemistry school teacher turned crystal methamphetamine manufacturer Walter White (or Heisenberg as he’s more commonly known) and dealer Jesse Pinkman strike up an unusual friendship and alliance when they start their drugs business Cap’n Cook. It’s no secret that the pair’s business takes off in a big way and they develop a strong, loyal bond. Bet you never thought you’d see Barack in a hazmat suit! A badass bromance if ever there was one!

And of course, Batman and Robin.

Ah the classic ‘Dynamic Duo’ Batman and Robin are a quintessential pair fighting crime and defeating evil together. So many similarities to Obama and Biden already we hear you cry! Yep and that’s not all… much like Biden, Robin is Batman’s light hearted sidekick and is often referred to as his ‘comic relief’.

This Woman's Younger Brother Had Nothing To Wear For The School Dance, So She Turned To Facebook

Siblings are usually bitter enemies, sworn to roast, bother, and pester each other until the end of time.

However, when stuff gets real, and your brother or sister needs some help, you’ve always got their back.

And this big sister lived up to that role when she found out that her younger brother had nothing to wear to his first big school dance.

Lisa White took to Facebook and asked her friends to help get her brother some fly clothes so he could take his girlfriend out in style.

Her little bro, Cody Keifer, didn’t really have many clothing options at his disposal, as he never went to a school dance before. Yes, it was his first time. So not only was he most likely nervous, but he was a complete newbie to the whole situation.

White then asked Facebook to provide Cody with clothes to match his girlfriend.

“His girlfriend is wearing a red dress and my brother is in need of a red tie, white shirt and black pants. Depending on prices, I can buy some of it for him. But if anyone has anything he can borrow or possibly have to wear for the night, it would mean the world to him.”

White thought that she would only get “two or three responses.”

“Within maybe an hour, I had 10 different people offer to take him shopping. I had put my phone down and came back after doing the dishes and I was just amazed at how many people had already offered to help.”

Cody was floored by the community’s response. He initially only asked his sister for a red tie, but then she ended up getting him a whole outfit.

“I’ve never had that experience before — not just the dance but the help from the community.” Cody said

So Lisa took Cody to meet up with a kind woman who agreed to help out online, and she was a total stranger.

“(Cody) was more worried that is would be embarrassing or awkward and it wasn’t at all. The woman walked in and said ‘Let’s do this!’ She told him, ‘You need to look like a king,’ and ‘That’s what every young man deserves’ and ‘Don’t even look at the price.’ And he got everything: the shirt, the shoes, the tie, right down to his socks.” – White said in an interview with Omaha.com.

Someone else even bought Cody a corsage for him to give to his date, and another family provided a gift card so the young couple could enjoy a nice dinner.

The outpour of support made White extremely emotional, especially because Cody was working hard in school to get his grades back up.

“It was above and beyond anything I ever imagined. I was so glad to see him finally going to a dance and wanting to do that, I wanted to bawl my eyes out. I’m glad he got to experience it, and I got to witness it all. And I’m so grateful to the people who helped him.”

It’s easy to get bogged down in negativity and generally feel like humanity sucks, it’s not like this world doesn’t give you more than enough evidence of that. But you can never discount our common desire to help those in need. It sounds like Cody had an amazing first school dance because of it.

An Olympic Swimming Pool Turned Green And No One Knows Why

You’ve probably heard about how Rio’s sea water is so polluted that only three teaspoons is enough to make an athlete seriously ill. Well, it’s spreading to the pools too. Athletes and tourists have been flocking to social media to ask why this pool seems to have turned green overnight…

And apparently it’s not just this pool…

For reference, here’s a picture of the pool a few days ago.

And here’s the underwater camera from yesterday and again from today.

The reason for the swamp-like color? No one seems to know. No one that should know why, anyway. BBC commentator Bob Ballard asked an organizer and got a less than reassuring “I don’t know.” 

Regardless of the fact, the women’s 10m synchronized diving finals still took place in the pool. With viewers and athletes taking to Twitter to joke about the situation.

And everyone who thinks they know their science has been offering explanations. Aimee Lewis of the BBC explains:

“An American photographer in the press room suggests that perhaps organisers did not “shock” the water overnight.”

“‘You know, it’s like back home, if you don’t shock the pool water it turns green. It doesn’t look nice, but it isn’t dangerous,’ he says.”

“If chlorine levels drop, even for one day, it can turn green because of an algae outbreak. Having never owned a pool let alone needed to clean one, I just nod sagely.”

While this Twitter user blames someone forgetting to put the chlorine in:

Whatever the reason, it doesn’t look very inviting.
