Animals are just like humans. For every loving one, there’s a jerk. A few months back, an animal shelter in Melbourne, Australia, went viral when they wrote a brutally honest personal ad for Mr. Biggles, a cat they described as “an utter utter utter bastard.”
And now, Denell McCaul from Clarksville, Michigan, has gone viral doing the same thing to get rid of her “jerk” rooster. McCaul, who owns several chickens, took to Facebook to try and get rid of the rooster, and her hilarious Facebook post has since gone viral.
The post, which has been shared over 65,000 times and attracted over 30,000 comments, doesn’t seem to have found any potential homes from the rooster just yet, but that’s probably because people are too busy laughing.
Woman Says She’ll Send Any Man’s Unsolicited D*ck Pic To Their Mom, And A Guy Actually Challenged Her
Madi Kohn is a 20 year old student at Arizona State University and is really over getting unsolicited d*ck pics from guys online. Like, really over it. She’s so over it that her Tinder profile includes a warning that if she gets one, she will pass it along to the dude’s mother.
Madi is not playing, you guys.
Like lots of other young women, Madi has her Tinder account linked to her Instagram, and, unfortunately, she’s kind of come to regret that decision. Having the two profiles linked creates a sort of loophole in the Tinder process. Whereas normally on Tinder people can’t message you unless you’ve matched with them, linking your Instagram account allows people you didn’t actually match with to still message you.
That’s where Ryan comes in.
He didn’t match with Madi on Tinder, but he began sending her “kind of creepy and kind of gross and annoying things” via Instagram. The messages, which Madi initially ignored, culminated in — you guessed it — an unsolicited d*ck pic. At six in the morning. Seriously. who sends d*ck pics at six in the morning?!? LET THE GIRL SLEEP!
Madi was both tired and unimpressed.
So Madi did what she said she would. She did some digging through his profile, found the guy’s Facebook, where he had family members linked, and forwarded the pictures along to his mother.
Madi is a woman of her word, y’all.
In the message, Madi wrote: “Hi, I see that your son is Ryan (redacted). I have never talked to him or met him, but he has sent me this picture through Instagram after discovering my profile. Can you please tell him not to send unsolicited pictures to women? I did not ask for it.”
Mom replied, apologizing in both English and Spanish, and saying she would have a talk with her son. The guy changed his Instagram name and username shortly after and has not contacted Madi since. But that’s not where the story ends.
When Buzzfeed reached out to Ryan for his side of the story, he complained that he felt violated and that Madi couldn’t prove it was him who sent the pictures anyway. Evidently, he’s very concerned about matters of consent.
“I will say this. If that was ‘me’ what she did was illegal. You can’t share those types of ‘private’ pics without consent. I am not sure if you are aware of that. My mom, my sister, other family members, my friends – no one cared.”
He then went on to talk about possibly pressing charges, but how he’d be willing to skip that if Madi leaves him and his family alone.
When Twitter caught wind of that aspect of the story, they went IN.
Michael took issue with what Madi was wearing in one of her images. We were going to describe it, but IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT A PERSON IS WEARING, THEY ARE NOT ASKING FOR IT UNLESS THEY LITERALLY ASK FOR IT. Sorry, caps got stuck there…
Celeste Barber is a comedian who has made a name for herself simply by recreating all the famous Instagram pics that models, actresses, and musicians are always posting showing off their fabulous life and fit bods. With just a one pic, Barber deflates all their pretensions:
Though she’s been virally famous for a while, it is worth checking in with Barber on a seasonal basis. She keeps up with what’s trendy on Insta, and since right now is bathing suit season, she’s letting it all hang out. Nothing like seeing a million pool and boat posts spoofed over and over and over again to make you realize that Instagram models are kind of in a rut:
And here are a bunch of her latest non-bikini recreations, just for fun:
That’s the celebration of summer I want to see! Though did she go too far with this spoof of Beyoncé’s holy twins?
You’ve probably never heard of Hope Hicks. She’s only 28 years old, has no political experience whatsoever, and got a degree in English from Southern Methodist University. Also, she is among the highest paid aides to Donald Trump, serving as Assistant to the President and Director of Strategic Communications in the White House.
Hicks fell into her current position through a job at the Trump organization before the campaign. Since becoming a part of President Trump’s team, she has weathered multiple staff changes, always asserting herself as a valuable member of Trump’s inner circle – all without making a name for herself as one of the jostling in-fighters that people picture within the current administration. Trump says Hicks has been with him “from the beginning.”
In 2012, while working for public relations firm Hiltzik Strategies, Hicks first encountered Ivanka Trump while handling her fashion line. In 2014, Ivanka hired Hicks to work for the Trump Organization.
Hicks is paid the same amount as Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, chief strategist Steve Bannon, press secretary Sean Spicer, senior counselor Kellyanne Conway, policy adviser Stephen Miller, and communications official Omarosa Manigault.
Some of Hick’s family members are concerned that she’s so closely tied to a President whose policies are so unpopular with a significant number of Americans, but are confident that she’ll emerge “unscathed.”
Though reporters have complained that Hicks is often “unreachable” and “[denies] access to the candidate,” many also recognize that there is no one who better understands the mercurial moods of Donald Trump. As the 45th presidency continues, let’s hope she’s nearby to stop him from tweeting anything that might throw the nation into a panic!
We’re in the middle of a heatwave, so when Hannah Pewee had to visit the Woodland Mall in Grand Rapids, Michigan, she dressed for the weather. But the 20-year-old student says that she was kicked out of the mall on Saturday after another shopper complained about her outfit.
What was she wearing? We highly suggest that you avert your eyes because yes, she was wearing a Finding Nemo tank top and denim shorts. Shortly after the incident, Pewee took to Facebook to share her side of events.
In a caption alongside the photo, Pewee wrote:
“As many of you know, it is NINETY degrees outside today in West Michigan. Aka, really hot. So, of course, I decided to dress for the weather: shorts and a tank top. But apparently, how I was dressed (see photo below) was too slutty for the public, as I was kicked out of the Woodland Mall today.”
She went on to claim that a security guard asked her to leave after another shopper complained:
“Yup. Apparently some anonymous person reported me to MALL SECURITY for inappropriate dress and I was kicked out.”
“Never mind that within a one foot radius there were plenty of girls dressed just like me, since it’s NINETY degrees outside. I am so angry right now I’m shaking. I felt so embarrassed I almost cried. All because a stranger didn’t like how I dressed.”
Pewee slammed the mall’s decision in the post which has since received over 8,000 shares.
“The Woodland Mall should be ashamed of themselves, as well as that anonymous complainer. It’s my body, and it’s hot outside! I’m not going to show up in jeans and a sweater, sorry. Don’t like it? Look away! I was out having a fun time with my sister and next thing I know, I’m out on the street. Slut-shaming how girls are dressed is deplorable and outdated, and it needs to stop.”
According to a second Facebook post posted by Pewee, a representative of the mall quickly contacted her to apologize after the post went viral.
“Hi Jessica, we have apologized to Hannah and we apologize to our community. It is never our intention to shame or embarrass anyone. We’re going to make sure that everyone on our team is aware of how to handle situations like this in the future. We dropped the ball on this one.”
Lowri Byrne of the United Kingdom went in to an H&M to buy clothing in May. What she came out with was viral celebrity.
The problem that she had in the changing rooms is apparently one that is rather common, regardless of where you come from. The issue? H&M’s clothing sizes.
Your humble writer gave up on H&M many, many years ago because the sizes he actually fit in made him feel like an overweight monster. Lowri had a similar experience.
Lowri posted a photo of the outfit in question, and a scathing and sarcastic message alongside of it, directly to H&M’s Facebook page.
“Please sort your sizes out because this is absolutely ridiculous! I’m a size 12 and small busted and today in a H&M store I had to ask if this dress came in a size 18 (it didn’t…)
The dress I have on in these photos is a size 16, and I could barely breathe. Not only was this annoying because I wanted to buy this dress, but so many women take what size dress they buy to heart. If I was one of these girls (thankfully I’m not) requesting a size 18 dress would seriously devastate me!
When I asked if this dress came in a 18 the store assistant said “ahh yeah you have to go up a couple of sizes with these”. A couple?!? going up 3-4 sizes surely should make you realise that you need to seriously sort out sizing!!!”
The post went promptly viral, gathering almost 4,000 reactions, 355 shares, and 586 comments. Mostly all of them were in favor, and in agreement.
H&M, to their credit, did issue the following official statement:
“H&M hugely values all customer feedback. It is only ever our intention to design and make clothes that make our customers feel good about themselves, any other outcome is neither intended nor desired. H&M’s sizes are global and the sizes offered in the U.K. are the same in all the 66 markets in which we operate in and online.
As there is no global mandatory sizing standard, sizes will differ between brands and different markets. Our dedicated, in-house sizing department works according to an average of the sizes and measurements suggested by the markets we operate in. H&M sizes are continually reviewed by our in-house sizing department.”
Will H&M ever catch up with the rest of the world and provide sizing that doesn’t make people feel gross? We won’t hold our breath… unless we’re trying to fit into a pair of their jeans.
A woman jumped on the roof of her car to stop a thief who was driving it away—and believe it or not, this isn’t viral marketing for Wonder Woman. CNN got the insane video:
The woman on the roof of the car, Wisconsinite Melissa Smith, admits she’s “apparently a little” crazy.
“This is what I’m doing,” she told CNN that she thought during her car leap. “You are not leaving with my car, I’m not dealing with this sort of crap today, and that’s just what I did.” That’s right—her superhero move came out of pure annoyance, which is perfect.
“I don’t tolerate this sort of behavior,” she explained.
The carjacker’s reaction to her, as she screamed in his face from the hood of the car? “He laughed at me,” Smith said. In a few seconds, however, she apparently spooks him, and he gets out of her car. She then opens the front door and jumps into the moving vehicle.
The thief fled away for now, but Smith has her car back. How would you handle this situation?
Olivia Skuce, a 21-year-old from Northern Ireland, recently decided to order a crop top from PrettyLittleThings. But when it arrived, she noticed a pretty hilarious flaw in the design, so she decided to share it with their customer support on Twitter…
Skuce initially thought she ordered the wrong size, or something from the kid’s section, but as it turns out, a lot of people were having the same issue…
The laws are set up in a way, it seems, that you can be technically fined or penalized for everything. Unless you’ve got tons of evidence proving otherwise like clear photographs with time stamps and all that fun stuff, a judge probably won’t rule in favor of you getting out of a ticket. You’ll have just wasted a day of work and feel like an idiot for having any hope and contesting the fine in the first place.
So at the end of the day, it’s up to the clemency of a judge on whether or not someone’s innocent or guilty. Their ruling is all that matters so if you have to take something to court, usually you have to just pray that you get a judge who has a concept of justice that isn’t just black and white.
Thankfully, this woman received a judge who wasn’t a stickler for the rules.
Becuase you can only imagine her frustration at being given a ticket for parking in a spot 2 seconds before she was allowed to. No, I’m not making this up.
The best part of the court interaction is that once the judge saw the time she committed the offense, he had some fun with it.
One of the first executive orders that Donald Trump signed in his first few days as President was a bill that would remove federal funding from organizations abroad if they not only performed abortions or even talked to expecting mothers about it.
Here’s President Trump signing an executive order that endangers millions of women around the world. Notice anyone missing? pic.twitter.com/aPA84530m5
A member of 52 spoke with BuzzFeedregarding the widely-shared image.
“It’s a joke….to ridicule something that boggles the mind: For centuries, it’s been men who dictate women’s bodies. Women are told what they should wear, what salary they’re entitled to… Trump has only just become president, and the first thing he does is take a step backward by signing this piece of legislation. This picture of the president shows very well how men get to dictate the rights women have…It really wound us up…On social media, some people pointed out the fact that one would ever see a photograph depicting a group composed exclusively of women signing legislature over what men are allowed to do with their genitalia. That was our starting point. We thought, Hey, why don’t we make such a picture?”
In case you were wondering, the original photo was taken when Barack Obama awarded the Congressional Medal to WASPs, a group of female WW2 fighter Pilots.

52 was last seen protesting the yearly winter fashion sales in France, and they made a pretty awesome video about it.
