This poor little mud-covered puppy was discovered by workers at a construction site in London. He was quickly sent to the nearest vet -the South Essex Wildlife Hospital to be cleaned up and saved, but after a little shampoo, his rescuers were shocked by what they found underneath.
That's right, the poor little muddy, debris-covered pup was actually an adorable little fox kit. Puppy or not, I'm sure this little cutie was happy to be rescued from his filthy cocoon.
Who doesn't love creamed egg cassarole in a corned beef crust? Or how about seafood loaf complete with noodles and tuna? Ok, I'm kidding, these are the things nightmares are made of. And if you think they sound bad, just wait until you see the photos.
These recipes and more horrifying ideas are courtesy of a 70s cookbook called Happy Living! A Guidebook for Brides that was given away for free when brides registered at a regional department store. As if the foods weren't awful enough, the advice is also attrocious -like how to decorate your table and garnish your foods because those are the only satisfying things in your life and the only way to keep your husband happy with you.
Snakes get a bad rap what with being slithery and some of them being deadly and all, but that doesn't mean they can't be cute. If you aren't quite sure you can accept this as fact, you won't want to miss this precious video of a baby boa playing in his sandbox. Don't turn it off before the very end or you might miss the cutest part.
We all use language based on our backgrounds, lifestyles and how our friends speak, and your age can make a big difference in your choice of words. So now Zimbio challenges you to see if the site can guess your age based on your language use. I can't say it's particularly accurate, given that I'm 32 and it claimed I was 40 or 50, even so, it's a pretty fun quiz and I admit that I probably do use more mature language than most people my age.
State fairs are known for deep-fried goodness and the reality is that because new items are introduced every year at practically every fair, it's hard to find new and unusual creations. That being said, fried Jell-O is certainly a new one and unlike fried Kool Aid and many other fried treats, it's not just funnel cake with some kind of liquid poured into the batter. This time it's actually Jell-O battered and then deep fried and it must be good -after all, it won first place in the Best Taste award at the Texass State Fair. So if you get your chance to find some fried Jell-O, remember, there's always room for J-E-L-L-O.
Cosplayer Richard Schaefer, aka theofficialariel, may be a man, but he was born to be a Disney princess. His female cosplays are not only unbelievably charming, but also perfect enough to appear on a live-action Disney film.
September is banned books month and in celebration of all the great banned books that later were recognized as classics, the Washington D.C. library set up quite a clever scavenger hunt. Hidden in businesses around the city are copies of once-banned books -find one and it's yours. It's not just a matter of finding a free book of course, the program is a great way to look back on the history of censored books and each title will be wrapped in a cover that explains why the book was challenged. Clues to finding the secret treasures can be found on the library's Twitter account.
Food trends come and go, and while we can't stop hearing about kale and Greek yogurt these days, people in the seventies loved quiche and fondue. Now, thanks to Cosmopolitan, you can find out what the most popular food was the year you were born (assuming you were born after 1970 -but hey, you can look up your kid's birth years otherwise). I was born in the year of pasta alla vodka but there are certainly some years I relate with a lot better. How about you?
We've featured the delightful works of robot creator Simone Giertz befpre, but her newest invention makes the dreams of many future-loving geeks a new, entirely depressing reality. Sure, a robot dog seems like an ultimate pet, but when you see one walking himself off of a bridge like he wants to kill himself, you might just change your mind.
It's a tale as old as time, girl books a room on Airbnb, finds out her host is a roaring monster, she gets attacked by wolves while trying to escape to a Motel 6 and then her beastly host ends up saving her life. Next thing you know, the two are dancing it up and the host shows the girl his extensive e-library. Ok, maybe that's not the most common story in the world, but it does sum up Beauty and the Beast pretty well, which is what we love about Disney's tales told in emoji series of videos.
Sure anyone could dress as Winona Ryder's character in Stranger Things, but if you really want to sell your Joyce Byers cosplay, you need a few accessories and ideally -a haunted, light-covered wall. Now that's doing the character justice. Amanda Meldrum and Roy Holt have the right idea with this cosplay!
Herman the Cat is a little guy with big eyes and a deep soul. At least, he certainly seems to think a lot more about important matters than other kitties. Just here he seems to be wondering whether it's worth loving anyone if they're only going to die or stop loving you eventually.
And here he seems to have realized what hot dogs are really made of.
Of course, sometimes he does relax that big brain of his -and then he looks like one chill little kitty.
Sometimes you need to do a little construction on your property, but getting permits (especially if you live in a huge city like New York City) isn't always easy. So if you want to bypass the whole process, you can always try what one clever New Yorker did and just start an excavation in your backyard and use astroturf, patio furniture and some rocks to hide your digging.
No word on why, exactly homeowner Joseph Ienco was digging under his home, but at least an independent engineer has said the home itself is at no risk of collapsing -so that's something I guess.
If you couldn't tell by how often we post their projects, we love Instructables here at Neatorama, so when we saw they had a whole contest dedicated to geek projects, we pretty much had an office party. While the Heroes and Villains contest may be in the judging stage and closed to new entries, you certainly won't want to miss this incredible collection of projects related to comic books, sci-fi, fantasy and more. I'm pretty impressed by the Dobby doll and, while it's not in the finalists, I love this Gremlin costume. Of course, your personal preferences will no doubt be affected by your own favorite heroes and villains.
No matter where you're from, you're subject to stereotypes about your home state. Thrillist has collected some of the most obnoxious questions people love to ask people from each state in an effort to stop some of these horrible stereotypes -or at least stop people from having to hear about them every single day.
For some states, there are certainly more than one over-asked question although Thrillist only lists one per state. So if you have any you think should be added, feel free to add them into the comments.
I'd say for Calfornia, an obvious addition would be "so how far are you from LA?" Of course, when you leave the country, that question immediately evolves into "do you know any movie stars?" Because despite the fact that California is larger than all of Italy, and that Los Angeles is one of the most populous cities in the world, yes, we all live in a tiny city and know each other quite well.
Vegetables are great for a health and while it's usually best to eat them, sometimes it's nice to cuddle with them in order to thank them ffor all they've done for us. That's why we love this great giant cucumber body pillow that's just perfect for chilling out with. Of course, if you prefer pickles, it could serve as a large pickle pillow instead -which might be the ideal way to satisfy a pregnancy craving. You might recognize the work of Etsy seller jumbojibbles as she created the giant carrot body pillow we featured a few years ago.
You might be planning to take a swim this weekend, but chances are you'll never take a swim quite like this one. Of course, while it looks like a hell of an experience, I wouldn't recomend filling your pool with water marbles any time soon. After all, it can't be good for the filter.
We love Stranger Things and all of its great 80s referrences and if you love it as much as the rest of us, you won't want to miss this great list of trivia about the show featured on Thrillist. For example, did you know the show was originally intended to be set in Montauk, New York and it was even going to be named Montauk? In fact, even after they moved it to Indiana, the creators still wanted to keep the name.
The article can also tell you how the crew helped keep the youngsters on set from being too scared of the horrible monster and the Upside Down.
Ever wish you could visit Walter White's house? He might not actually live there in real life, but the home used in the show sure is real and you can visit it -along with other famous tv destinations like Bill's House from True Blood, Sherlock's Baker street apartment and the Murder House from American Horror Story. See what other places you could see in real life over at Travel and Leisure.
Tucker may not realize he's different from other dogs, but he suffers from MPS VI, a rare disease that causes a number of medical issues as well as certain deformities. Those deformities look different on everyone with the disease, but in Tucker's case, they happen to have created a dog that looks more like a bat.
He may not be able to walk like other dogs and he may have to wear goggles outside to protect his eyes, but Tucker is still one happy pup and he loves to make all kinds of friends -both human and K-9. You can follow his adorable adventures on his Instagram, Tuckerwearsgoogles.
You probably know Americans love ketchup on their fries and the French love to dip theirs in mayonnaise, but did you know that San Diegians love to top theirs with cheese, guacamole and carne asada? Or that fries in Vietnam are often covered in butter and sugar? That's right, there are a lot of ways to eat fries and this cool article covers interesting combinations from around the world. It's got me craving some curry chips right now.
The Joker is an iconic comic book character and it's not surprising that some actors with a geeky side long to play the villian. Most notably, Robin Williams almost got to play The Joker in the 1989 film, but Jack Nicoloson was originally offered the part and when they approached Williams with the role, Nicoloson changed his mind. Williams was also almost cast as The Riddler in the 1995 film, but Jim Carrey was picked over him. While it's sad that comic-book fan Robin Williams never got to act in one of the Batman films, it's probably best for his legacy that he wasn't cast in that trainwreck.
Orcas eat seals -we know that. Seals know that too and they know the best way to escape is to get to dry land. When there is no dry land though, there is another option for the truly desperate -a boat. And this little terrified guy was all too willing to hop a ride on a passing by ship filled with humans as long as it meant he wasn't on the orca dinner menu.
Just hearing the words "ketchup cake" makes a lot of us want to vomit, but Heinz ketchup thought it sounded good enough to add a recipe for it on their labels. While most people looked at it, thought "ewwww" and moved on, one insane Redditor thought "why not?"
Of course, while he was mad enough to create the cake, even he wasn't brave enough to try it -so he invited some friends over to do it. Surprisingly, they seem to think it's alright -until the very end, when one of them actually tries the cake without the frosting.
He's such a hero to animals that he even has his own puppy sidekick, Sonic the Hedgedog. Unfortunately, this bulldog isn't quite as fast as his hedgehog friend, so sometimes he falls prey to Robotnik's evil tricks.
The Pokemon Go trend is finally starting to die down a little, so it's a perfect time to collect the strangest stories that have come out in the last few months. Here are some of the ten craziest stories we've come across.
1. Pokemon In the Real World?
Sure, Pokemon Go might be an augmented reality game, but that doesn't stop some people from believing the creatures really are hiding just out of view in the real world. In fact, many pet owners around the globe believe their pets can see the creatures and they've been posting photographic proof to sell their point.
As if that wasn't weird enough, one woman in Moscow claims she was sexually assaulted by a Pokemon. Her report doesn't specify which creature was involved in the assault, but it doesn't matter much since police told her to see a psychiatrist rather than putting an APB out for an augmented reality rapist.
2. Play At Your Own Risk
When you play Pokemon Go, you're warned to pay attention to your surroundings, but that wasn't enough to stop two players in San Diego to ignore trespassing signs and walk right off a cliff in search of Pokemon. While they both survived injuries, the two did make it out alive.
Of course, falling off a cliff is nothing compared to walking over a landmine -which is such a real concern in Bosnia that the government actually issued a warning for players to make sure they don't wander into any minefields, since most of these areas still contain live munitions.
3. The Guy Who Kept Playing Even After Being Stabbed
A guy playing Pokemon Go in Forest Grove, OR was stabbed by someone passing by, but he refused to let that stop him from catching more Pokemon. Instead, he kept playing, walked to a convenience store and bought chips and beer before seeking medical attention. When police arrived on the scene, he even refused treatment so he could keep playing. Eventually, he did go to a hospital, where he confessed, “It’s important to me. I’ve got to basically catch them all."
4. The Driver Who Crashed into a Cop Car While Playing
What do you do when three of your friends have birthdays within one week of another? You throw a giant, joint-birthday party. And that's exactly what Washington D.C.'s National Zoo did to celebrate the birthdays of three of their four pandas. Little Bei Bei turned one on Monday (that's not him in the photo since he slept through the cake time).
Bao Bao turns three today.
And pappa Tian Tian turns 19 on Saturday.
It seems safe to say that everyone had a good time, even if little Bei Bei here didn't actually get to eat his own birthday cake.
Slurpees are delicious. So delicious that sometimes even the biggest officially licensed Slurpee cup still isn't big enough. That's why we love 7-Eleven's once-a-year Bring Your Own Cup Day. Of course, some people don't care about quantity, they care about cup quality...
