These Squirrels Are Running a Chocolate-Theft Ring

A convenience store in Toronto noticed their were having quite a few chocolate bars going missing. When they figured out who was taking the chocolates, the family who runs the store had quite the charming surprise.

(Video Link)

Over the years a local band of squirrels stole dozens of chocolate bars from the shop. As it turns out, the family itself may be to blame -years ago they started feeding the birds outside the shop and the excess food may have lured the squirrels into the area. Once the free food was gone, the squirrels thought there still must be some free snacks somewhere.

Turn Your Old Fruit Into Wine and Beer With This Nearly-Magical Device

If you buy a lot of fresh fruit, you probably see it go bad here and there. Now you can do better than lemonade out of lemons by making wine or cider out of your old fruit. Supposedly you can even turn the fruit into mead -though obviously that requires more honey than it does fruit. The Alchema device is currently available for pre-order and while it's a pretty penny at $429, that could be a bargain for people who drink a lot of craft brews and end up tossing a lot of fruit. Best of all, you won't be wasting food anymore.

What Kind of a School Lets Kids Do a Scarface Play?

(Video Link)

Those fudging cock-a-roaches! How could they possibly stop a child's dream of playing Scarface? Seriously, this absurdly adorable Scarface reanactment was actually performed as a school play. It's hard to believe until you see the parents applauding at the end. But as to why this was performed at school or who thought this was a good idea, these are the things that will continue to haunt you long after watching this video.

Update: Thank you Uncleblob for pointing out that this wasn't actually a real school play but was actually created by professional director Marc Klasfeld. Even so, the people in the audience are actually the parents of the children on stage, so that sense of paternal pride is certainly real.

Finally You Can Have Your Poop Emoji and Eat it Too

The poop emoji has been a runaway success over the last few years, but for those who wish they could just take a big bite out of it, you can finally get your wish. This crappy dessert was created by Rancho Santa Margarita's The Doughnut Parlor. It's a chocolate cake donut with dark chocolate icing, covered in a spiral of chocolate buttercream and acccessorised with edible candy eyeballs.

While some people might have a hard time biting down on poop, the emoji donut has surprisingly become their biggest seller since it was released.

Season One of SyFy's The Expanse Recapped With Cats

(Video Link)

The Expanse is largely considered one of the most scientifically accurate science fiction shows ever. That being said, the recap version enacted by cats may not be quite as accurate -but it is the most adorable science fiction show ever (or at least a recap of one).

Warning for those who might want to check out the show at someone but haven't yet watched season one: there are quite a few spoilers here.

13 Countries You Might be Surprised to Know Speak English

If you want to travel the world but don't speak other languages (and hey, no one can speak them all, right?) it's often helpful to travel to places where the locals have a good handle on your language. If you're reading this, I'm assuming you speak English and good news -so do the countries in this great Thrillist article. Not every person in these countries actually speaks English, but each of them have a large enough English population and enough friendly folks that you should be able to get by. 

Of course, not every country with a large English speaking population is on the list, I would add pretty much all of Scandanavia, as well as France and Switzerland and commenters on the article have plenty more places they would add. In fact, the comments section could be some of the most helpful information in the article. So read the whole thing here.

Groom and His Groomsmen Dress Up As McDonald's Food

In Singapore it is traditional for grooms to show up at their bride-to-be's house before a wedding and participate in silly tasks at the request of the bridesmaids. Chen Guanyou must not have thought that didn't sound quite exciting enough on its own, so he decided to show up with his groomsmen all dressed in McDonald's costumes. Maybe it was a last hurrah for his fast food fandom because his bride, Joanna Tan, actually hates fast food -at least she was a good sport about the whole thing.

The Brooklyn Bar That Offers Free Drinks to Men Willing to Cut Off Their Man Buns

Pretty much everyone knows that man buns are awful, but those that have not yet gotten the message can be encouraged to cut off their buns in exchange for free alcohol. Of course, you have to be in Brooklyn, but if you are (and you happen to have the much-hated hairstyle), The Boobie Trap is happy to give you a full bottle of alcohol if you'll ditch the bun in the bar.

Finally a chance to get rid of an incredibly regretable fashion decision and forget about it all at the same time!

Each State's Favorite Netflix Show

We all love a good Netflix binge, but different places have different interests. Now you can see what Netflix show your state watches more than any other. 

Not every show on the list is a Netflix original, but many of them are, like Narcos, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Fuller House. A few trends really stand out throughout the country. For example, Orange is the New Black and Scandal are certainly the most popular overall. 

Obviously the map is a little small here, so see the whole thing here.

Redditors Share Their Most Horrific Medical Stories

Redditor AgentSmith420 asked the physicians of the site what the worst injury they ever saw during a routine check up. Unsurprisingly, many of the contributors weren't actually physicians and some of the stories weren't actually routine checkups, but despite this, the good majority of the responses are absolutely cringe-inducing. Perhaps the most horrifying one:

My brother once jumped on the front of my white car, grabbing the front pillars with his hands. I closed the door and caught his finger, which he pulled out quickly (as you do) but there was a tiny chip of paint that had come off the car and got lodged under the skin somehow. He must have spent a week or so chewing on it to try to get the paint out, but it just wasn't working so he went to the doctor to see if he could help. After checking it out, the doctor tells him, "The reason you can't get that out is because it's your bone."

Apparently when I shut the door on his finger, I'd broken the tip of his pinkie enough so he could see the bone through the skin and he'd spent the next few days trying to pull his own finger bone out with his teeth.

Another scary story:

My father is a radiologist, and told us a story one day: patient walks in his clinic complaining about a headache after a transatlantic flight. Since there are no obvious causes, a CT is performed. Turns out he has a broken neck that just did not sever his spinal cord yet. He got immediately fixated and apparently survived without major complications.

The Romantic Bath Bomb Wedding Proposal

Twitter user @kassidyrun1's boyfriend gave her a bath bomb on Christmas. It took her five days to get around to using it, but when she did, she discovered quite the surprise inside.

As it turns out, the clever man managed to order a custom made bath bomb with a bubble in the middle that was holding a promise ring.

The proposal is quite a clever idea and while it seems risky, the company that makes them, Pearl Bath Bombs, adds a random ring worth up to $30 inside each bath bomb. They then also include redemption contest codes in each one that can be entered at that site and reveal a ring worth up to $5,000 -but this way you won't lose one of the lucky expensive rings in the tub.

Everyone Needs a Niffler Necklace

Fans of Fantastic Beasts fell madly in love with the adorable little thief known as Niffler who just wants to get his little hands all over any thing shinny. While you can't have your own actual fantastic beast, you can get your hands on this precious jewelry version made by Aisha Voya -or at least you could if the pre-sale wasn't already completely sold out.

Of course, that was just the pre-sale, so with any luck maybe the cute critter will appear on her Etsy page in the future (or maybe she'll at least be willing to take custom order for them.

The Most Angering Restaurant Employee Agreement Ever

Almost everyone knows that waiters and waitresses aren't the most well-paid employees around, but seeing an employment contract that charges them every time they give male customers straws, fail to say "hi" or "bye" to customers or take out their cellphone is particularly shocking. Redditor 00generic posted this absurd employment contract that her cousin was asked to sign, noting that the restaurant already fired one employee who refused to sign. 

Needless to say, other Redditors were not happy about the employer's requirements and many pointed out that the company may be breaking the law.

Disney Princesses Reimagined As Potatoes

These days, we have seen Disney princesses reimagined as just about every possible thing. Many of these have become downright silly, which is why this Imgur series is just so damn delightful. 

Recognizing some of the silly potato characters is a fun game -the one at the top is obviously Pocahontas, the one above is Elsa from Frozen, lastly, the final one is Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.

I think we may have finally seen the most absurd version of the reimagined princesses trend, which is saying a lot. You can see the rest of the series at Imgur.

The Cat That Thinks Its A Husky

Back in 2014 we featured a husky that was raised around cats and thus, thought it was a cat, but as it turns out, we now know the opposite can be true too. Meet Rosie, a cat that was abandoned at only three weeks old and raised in a home with a surrogate mother husky who happens to be good friends with a few other huskies who live in the neighborhood. The kitty survived thanks to its surrogate family, but Rosie never learned what it's like to be a cat. Instead, she thinks she's just a slightly smaller dog.

Like her dog buddies, Rosie likes to go hiking, swimming, kayaking and more -basically whatever her humans and dog friends are up to, she wants to be a part of it. 

You can keep up on this cute kitty's adventures, and those of her friends, over on Instagram.

Benedict Cumberbatch is a Distant Relative of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

It turns out that Benedict Cumberbatch may have been born to play Sherlock Holmes. Researchers have recently discovered that he is actually a distant relative (16th cousins, twice removed to be exact) of Mr. Holmes' creator, Conan Doyle. Of course, that is pretty distant. To put it in perspective, their last common ancestor was John of Gaunt, the duke of Lancaster, who lived in the 14th century.

Researchers from Ancestry.com discovered the connection in their free time simply because they love the Sherlock series, which returned yesterday by the way. According to Fox, the website has not yet told the actor about the connection.

This Brewery Will Custom-Make a Beer for You Based on Your DNA

The flavors you like are partially based on how sensitive you are to certain chemicals. Now Meantime Brewing is creating custom brews for customers based on their DNA. Using a saliva sample to analyze what flavor compounds you may or may not enjoy, they will make you a beer they think you enjoy. They will even have you come in to consult on the beer so they can get your input on their flavor profiles and help name the beer and design the label. Of course, this kind of customization isn't cheap -the basic package will cost almost $31,000, but at least it leaves you with a good 2,000 pints of beer.

Watch This Panda Play With His New Snowy Friend

(Video Link)

Da Mao is a panda at the Toronto Zoo. Earlier this month, he got a snowman in his enclosure. Maybe he has some rage issues, because Da Mao's immediate response was to start ripping his face off, climbing on him and kicking his head off. One thing's for sure -he had a great time with his snowy new roommate.

This Bunny Sees the Benefit In Arcade Games

If you can teach a dog to drive a car or fly a plane, is it really that ambitious to teach a bunny to operate an arcade game? Bini the Bunny's owner thought to fill up an arcade game with healthy snacks and let Bini test his skills on the machine -and the bunny took to it pretty quickly. As long as he gets his treats, Bini is content.

All the Things the Internet Did to Guy Fieri This Year

The internet loves to hate Guy Fieri. It's like his loud mouth, two-toned beard and backwards sunglasses are just begging to be mocked. In 2016, the chef was the butt of many internet jokes and we all benefited from it -like that time they envisioned him as an average American dad rather than his flamboyant American dad reality or that time he cruised along with Mad Max. We already showed him hurt himself by eating, but it's hard to get enough funny Fieri jokes and Eater rounded up the best of them from the year

Your Drone Needs A Cozy Sweater

Winter gets so freezing and miserable. Our poor dogs need sweaters to keep warm, but drones are often left out in the cold. But that doesn't have to be the case any more now that Drone Sweaters makes custom made sweaters for your little flying friend. According to the company:

Smaller, lightweight models, toy models, and models that naturally have very thin plastic coats benefit from a warm drone sweater for when they need to go outside, or for just hanging around the house. A sweater can make a significant difference in your drone’s feeling of well-being.

Unfortunately, you have to visit their San Francisco studio to get your drone fitted for its sweater and the price is almost $200. If you are interested in getting one though, the first step is visiting their website.
