A Little Girl Left Her Stuffed Animal At An Airport And It Went On Quite An Adventure

A Little Girl Left Her Stuffed Animal At An Airport And It Went On Quite An Adventure

Remember your beloved stuffed animal, the one you slept with, and dressed up, and dragged around everywhere until it basically disintegrated? Perhaps it survived your childhood and still sits on a shelf, as a beloved reminder of a more innocent time. Or maybe you lost it somewhere, and it was never returned. That’s what happened to my poor stuffed Lamby. Yes, it was a stuffed lamb, who I still think about occasionally. Lamby, where are you?!

I’ll never know. One little girl named Gussie was saved from this devastation after leaving her favorite stuffed animal at the Norfolk Airport. Her mother, Kelly Bridges, wrote on Facebook that not only did the airport find the stuff animal, Cookie Dough, they made Gussie a special surprise: a little book showing all its adventures out on the town.

Bridges wrote: “Guys…Gussie lost her ‘Cookie Dough’ favorite stuffed animal at the airport last week. I called the airport to let them know, and they called us later to say they found it! She went to pick it up today and they gave her this book and I about cried. Norfolk International Airport, you all are awesome.”

The booklet showed Gussie not only that it was ok for her to lose her stuffed animal, but that Cookie Dough was having the time of its life.

It met some stuffed friends, checked the weather, and sampled some coveted airport merch:

Then, Cookie Dough went for a spin in a very nice car, and even got to ride on the dashboard, though it missed Gussie the whole time.

image

Cookie Dough even tested out some bigger cars, and got all dressed up for the job. It even met some really nice members of the rescue squad.

Cookie Dough got recruited to work as a police bear for a day, which seems like a big responsibility.

image

And even got to drive some fancy, airport-only vehicles:

image

Cookie Dough learned how to self-check for a flight, which, as we all know, is a very important skill:

image

Cookie Dough also adventured in ways a kid definitely shouldn’t. Stuffed animals have more leeway for stunts, though.

image

And Cookie Dough got snacks!

image

The stuffed dog took a really extensive tour of all the airport areas most of us never get to see:

image

Then almost got recruited again, this time for a different role:

image

But it was finally time to say goodbye to all its new friends and go home to Gussie:

image

Like everybody, Cookie Dough did experience some down time at the airport, but waiting around is part of the experience.

image

The booklet was made specifically by the Norfolk Airport Police, which makes me think that this may be the safest airport in America. 

They seem to have a lot of time on their hands:

image

And they used it to make one little girl very, very happy:

But Cookie Dough: don’t go wandering aimlessly again.

Pop-Tarts Went Off On Someone Who Dared Mess With Their Creation

You think you know someone, and then you follow them on social media. Most of us probably think of Pop-Tarts as a wholesome family company, cranking out sweet, portable pockets of delicious baked goodness. That’s true, but in addition to all that, they’re also sick of our ridiculousness.

A Twitter user named @KieranCollins35 decide to @ Pop-Tarts with their kitchen experimentations involving one of their tasty tarts and a container of Old Bay seasoning. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s mostly used for flavoring seafood. Picture Pop-Tarts and crab juice together, and you’ll get a sense of this monstrosity:

That is offensive.

It’s unclear if the tweeter was trying to get a rise out of Pop-Tarts or if they genuinely think this is a good idea, but they definitely got their response. The social media manager for Pop Tarts has had a day, and they’re not taking anymore of this:

They responded:

“I’m not sure why people need to take the time out of their ‘busy’ (jk) lives to ruin a Pop-Tart and try to get some attention but congratulations this is the most famous you’ll ever be.”

Wow, you better put some Old Bay on that burn and consider yourself seasoned, @KieranCollins35!

This has apparently been building to a head for some time, as Pop Tarts has been combatting internet debate about what, exactly, a Pop-Tart is. They’ll sure tell you what it is not:

And they’re sick of everyone’s “innovative” Pop-Tart concepts:

Pop-Tarts have some specific ideas about what makes it tasty, and it will tell you when you crossed the line.

But some think coming for Old Bay is crossing a different line:

Their angry tone is likely part of Pop-Tarts social media strategy, not just some deranged tweeter, and it certainly engages consumers. At least the ones who want to get dragged to hell:

But be careful, because this may turn into a brand war:

Eat Pop-Tarts in whatever disgusting way you want, but if you’d like an actual recommendation from the makers of this pastry (?), here it is:

I love a sweet Pop-Tart, but I love it even more when it gets salty.

Ivanka Trump Claims She Went Through A 'Punk Phase,' And People Are Skeptical

Chances are that if you were anything between a tween and a teen in the 90s, you probably had a punk phase. The Offspring, Paramore, Green Day, and a bunch of other bands often frequented either your CD player or cutting edge 128mb mp3 player. Eventually the punk lifestyle would grab hold and everything from temporary tattoos to animesque hair colors fell under the ‘punk’ moniker for most parents, which includes Ivanka Trump’s mother as told in the pages of her new memoir.

Ivanka wrote about it in her mother Ivana’s new book Raising Trump and said that at one point she dyed her hair blue and was ‘really into Nirvana.’ The thing is, no one is really buying it.

She didn’t provide any photos so folks had to use their imagination.

There was also a problem with her alleged punk obsession.

It was pretty evident for people that actually did dye their hair blue and listen to Nirvana that Ivanka’s punk rock phase was nothing more than a cheap attempt at trying to relate to millennials.

This College Student Went Viral For Having A Last Name That's Hard To Wedding Hashtag

Fear of not being able to have an adorable wedding hashtag is real, and the sum of those fears is here. I present: college student Steven Kleinschmidt. 

Kleinschmidt joins me and many other cursed souls in having a last name that doesn’t exactly conjure romance.

But other Twitter users started thinking up some actually ingenious hashtags. 

Including lots of “smitten” puns, which Kleinschmidt told BuzzFeed were his favorite. “Everything else was clever but nothing you’d ever really use for a wedding hashtag,” he said. 

What, Steven, you don’t think these would make good wedding hashtags?

Donald Trump Just Went After Stephen Colbert On Twitter

Donald Trump Just Went After Stephen Colbert On Twitter

President Donald Trump had a very busy Thursday, May 11th. First, he claimed he had invented the term “prime the pump.” This claim was quickly shot down by the Merriam-Webster dictionary, who tweeted out some quick info:

twitter

Then, directly contradicting reports from his own White House staff, Trump insisted to NBC Nightly News Anchor Lestor Holt that he was planning on firing Comey “regardless of recommendation:”  

What I  did is, I was going to fire Comey. My decision… I was going to fire  Comey. There’s no good time to do it, by the way… I was going to fire  regardless of recommendation. He made a recommendation. He’s highly  respected. Very good guy. Very smart guy. The Democrats like him. The  Republicans like him. He made a recommendation, but regardless of  recommendation, I was going to fire Comey. 

And then, in what may be his most insane move yet, President Trump claimed American sweetheart Steven Colbert had “no talent.” 

You  see a no-talent guy like Colbert. There’s nothing funny about what he  says. And what he says is filthy. And you have kids watching. And it  only builds up my base. It only helps me, people like him. The guy was  dying. By the way they were going to take him off television, then he  started attacking me and he started doing better. But his show was  dying. I’ve done his show… But when I did his show, which by the way was  very highly rated. It was high — highest rating. The highest rating  he’s ever had. 

geekbinge

Wow. There’s a lot to unpack in President Trump’s statement. First, the  “filth” Trump mentioned is most likely referencing a recent  controversial monologue in which Colbert said the only thing the  president’s mouth is good for is “being Vladimir Putin’s c*** holster.” The joke jump-started the #FireColbert movement, and drew considerable ire from both conservatives and LGBTQ activists.

Trump also claimed his episode of The Late Show received the “highest ratings they’ve ever had.” This is not true. The Late Show‘s series premiere had a better rating than Trump’s episode, which aired in September 2015. Also, according to the Hollywood Reporter, “Colbert’s Daily Show reunion episode on Tuesday is pacing to be The Late Show‘s highest rated episode in 19 months.”

Trump also asserted that Colbert’s show “was dying” before the host began attacking Trump. While this is also untrue (The Late Show  was the third-most-popular late night program even at its lowest  point), there has definitely been an upswing in ratings since Colbert  began focusing more on politics. The Late Show has been the highest rated late night program (beating out its closest rival, Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show) for 14 consecutive weeks.

Justin Trudeau's Face When Trump Went For A Handshake Is Priceless

Justin Trudeau is known as Canada's Golden Boy. He's young, kind-hearted, has an open policy for refugees, and is all about charity and giving back to the people. He's also in incredible shape and is super, duper, dreamy.

Donald Trump is the complete opposite.

So the impending meeting between the two of them was one that everyone was desperately looking forward to.

Well it finally happened this past Monday, and although it was just a run-of-the-mill meet and greet between two world leaders, something surfaced.

Namely this amazing photo that was captured right before Trudeau shook Donald Trump's hand.

It was if in that split-second Trudeau couldn't betray himself and revealed what he and much of the world felt about the Donald's presidency.

And, of course, the internet took notice of the photo and had a lot to say about it.

People also noticed that Ivanka was very, very happy to meet the Canadian Prime Minister as well.

But in all honestly, can you blame her?

Twitter Is In Love With This Couple Who Went To Special Needs Prom Together

Twitter user ThatGuyJigg recently took to Twitter to share perhaps the cutest couple in the would right now — his brother, Justin, and his prom date, Victoria. They're all dressed up for Night to Shine, an “unforgettable prom experience” for special needs kids who might not be able to go their school's prom.

He asked the internet to help them go viral, and the internet obliged, retweeting the post 220,000 times and liking it more than half a million times. 

And Justin seems pretty excited about the whole thing.

Someone even drew a sketch of the two.

Mostly, people are just freaking out about how adorable these two are.

We really need some fashion tips from both of them.

This Grocery Store Trolled A Woman After She Went On A Hilarious Rant About Vegan Cheese

In case you haven’t seen the YouTube videos of their meltdowns, here’s an important fact to remember: vegans don’t eat cheese. So, in order to accommodate a variety of diets, the UK-based supermarket chain Sainsbury’s began carrying a line of coconut milk-based vegan cheese. 

It sounds a little gross, but no big deal, right? WRONG. 

One woman was NOT about to be duped by manipulative marketing techniques calling vegan cheese “cheese,” so she took to the chain’s Facebook page to speak her mind. 

Get ready:

CHEESE.

If you’re going to be a vegan don’t call your vegan cheese BECAUSE IT’S NOT CHEESE!!!!! As a real cheese fan myself it’s really annoyed me that Sainsbury’s have brought out a “Vegan Cheese” made with COCONUTS. CHEESE IS NOT MADE WITH COCONUTS. Call it Gary or something don’t call it Cheese because IT’S NOT CHEESE!!!!!! Just to recap, in case you have forgotten — cheese is a delicious food made mostly from the milk of cows but also other animals including sheep, goats, buffalo, reindeer, camels and yaks. Around 4000 years ago people have started to breed animals and process their milk. That’s when the cheese was born. So Sainburys can F off. Go enjoy your cheese less life. Don’t try to make up a substitute cheese and call it cheese because it’s not and you’ve decided your way of life. It’s ridiculous that they’ve used the word cheese!!! Don’t come to my Cheese and Wine Parties if you’re going to eat COCONUT CHEESE. (If you’re allergic to cheese I feel for you) If you’re a Vegan because you’ve chosen to be and not that you’re allergic I’m not interested in your views about vegan cheese or that ‘eating products from animals is bad.’

TBH, we sort of agree a little because NOTHING RUINS WINE AND CHEESE PARTIES LIKE VEGANS WITH THEIR FAKE COCONUT CHEESE. Cheese which we will now refer to only as “Gary or something.”

Attention all vegans: go enjoy your cheeseless life. You and your substitutes are dead to us. Your beliefs are invalid and no one likes you

Sainsbury’s, our new favorite UK-based supermarket chain, decided to take their dissatisfied customer’s concerns seriously and announced their new line of Gary. 

Quality customer service is not dead. 

Now the whole Gary thing is catching on everywhere… Because vegans, despite being no fun at wine and cheese parties, actually have a sense of humor. 

So, we hope everyone will oblige and accept the name change. Besides, “cheese” was sooo 2015.
