    Most people attending a wedding are aware of the golden rule: Never show up the bride.

    That is… everyone except for Anderson, the four-year-old daughter of the bride who recently stole the show during her mother’s nuptials.

    In this particular case, however, Michelle Hall was happy to share the spotlight.

    The young girl, who the wedding photographer said “was calling herself the bride the whole day,” didn’t hesitate to make a memorable moment during the couple’s wedding photos.

    “I was setting up the bridal party to take the bridal party photographs – like I do at every wedding – and so I took a few shots of that, and then said, ‘Okay, I need the bride and the groom to kiss,’” Leah Bullard, the wedding photographer, explained to WBIR News.

    “So when I said that, well naturally [Anderson] thought I was referring to her because she thought she was the bride and so naturally she just leaned in for a kiss and kissed that ring bearer!”

  • Bosnian men learn how to not throw a frisbee. (YouTube)Bosnian men learn how to not throw a frisbee. (YouTube)

    Learning a new game isn’t always easy and that’s certainly true for these two men.

    During one hot day at the beach, these Bosnian friends decided to take a popular activity – Frisbee - and turn it into their own unknown game.  

    In the hilarious video, which has gone viral, the two men are caught in the water throwing the disk to each other. Their back-and-forth game continues for awhile. One throws the Frisbee towards his friend and the other picks it up from the water and throws it back.

    But in the real game, a Frisbee is meant to glide through the air.

    And it seems as though their game isn’t easy to play either. While in the water with some distance apart, the two men definitely use some muscle strength to throw the Frisbee across to each other.

    Frisbee is a popular beach activity played by thousands, either in the water or on the sand. It’s definitely a great way to have fun.

    And the best part of the game, the rules aren’t hard to learn. There’s really only one thing to remember -

  • Ambulance used in ‘Sleeping Beauty’ prom entrance sends the Internet into a frenzy

    Russell told the news outlet that she likes to “think outside the box.”

    Ashvonn Russell wanted to create a prom entrance to remember, but she didn’t realize it would send the Internet into a frenzy.

    In lieu of a limousine, Russell was driven to the prom in a much larger vehicle: an ambulance. When she arrived at the location, she was taken out on a stretcher, and in ‘Sleeping Beauty’-fashion, only to be “awoken” by a kiss from her Prince Charming.

    It was all part of her plan. 

    The entrance gained traction online after Twitter user ‘Captain Pajamas’ posted pictures to his timeline, captioned, “She went to prom in an ambulance and woke up after she got kissed by prince charming lol.”

    Since then, the tweet has been favourited and retweeted over 7,500 times, with many people criticizing her use of an emergency vehicle and some calling it “absurd.”

  • Iranian women post pictures with their hair out to protest strict hijab laws

    “My mother wants to wear a scarf. I don’t want to wear a scarf. Iran should be for both of us.”

    In Iran, women have been required by law to wear the hijab since 1979 and authorities are notoriously stringent with the law's implementation. Last year alone, some 3.6 million women were warned, fined or arrested in Iran for “inappropriate dress.”

    Masih Alinejad, an Iranian journalist and activist living in Brooklyn, NY, wants this to change. And in an effort to do so, she began inviting Iranian women to send in pictures of themselves enjoying their unveiled hair, reports Vox.

    Alinejad created a Facebook group titled ‘My Stealthy Freedom’ as a safe haven for women in Iran to post pictures of themselves without their headscarves on. So far, the page has been flooded with thousands of entries, and has over 820,000 likes.

    “Some of those pictures come from young girls saying that they just want to feel the wind in their hair,” said Alinejad. “It’s a simple demand.”

  • Ed Sheeran doesn't just perform duets with Taylor Swift.Ed Sheeran doesn't just perform duets with Taylor Swift.

    Ed Sheeran is really one of the nicest guys in entertainment.

    The British pop superstar surprised a young fan at the West Edmonton Mall in Alberta this past weekend with an unexpected duet.

    Sydney Bourbeau was performing one of Sheeran’s hit song “Thinking Out Loud” at a fundraising event hosted by Resonate Music School & Studio at the mall. The pop star walked out of the HMV store and onto the stage to finish the song with her. Just before leaving, Sheeran hugged the young performer.

    “I was like ‘Should I stop?’ I didn’t want to stop, but I wanted to talk to him,” Bourbeau told the Edmonton Journal. “This is, like, the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”

    At first, the 13-year-old, who has been a big Sheeran fan for years, had no idea what was going on until the crowd started cheering.

    Bourbeau showcased her singing skills and kept up with her idol right by her side. She has been taking musical lessons at the Resonate Music School for nearly a year.

  • A New York City apartment building is being accused of “dog racism” after demanding residents submit their pets for DNA testing to identify unwanted breeds.

    According to DNAinfo.com, residents of 170 West End Ave. were told in May that they must provide certification from a registered veterinarian that proves the pedigree of their dogs. If the dog is a mixed breed, the certification must explain what percentage of each breed comprise the dog’s genetic makeup.

    If the owner can’t provide that information, the building's new policy says it can force the owner to perform DNA testing to find out the exact genetic makeup of each puppy.

    If a dog is found to have over 50 per cent of any of the 27 breeds banned by the building’s co-op board, the dog would be evicted from the building.

    Banned breeds in the building include large dogs like St. Bernards, German shepherds and pit bulls, but also basset hounds, shih tzus, maltese and popmeranians.

Little did he know Hobbes was about to embark on an amazing adventure, courtesy of airport staff.

  • 30-year-old computer runs the heating for 19 public schools

    The computer is never turned off and runs on a 1200-bit modem

    (ubergizmo.com)(ubergizmo.com)

    In a world where gadget updates and upgrades are a regular occurrence, a computer older than five years is an anomaly.

    But in Grand Rapids, Michigan, a 30-year-old Commodore Amiga is still plugging away, controlling the heat and air conditioning for 19 different public schools.

    “The system controls the start/stop of boilers, the start/stop of fans, pumps, [it] monitors space temperatures, and so on,” said Grand Rapids Public Schools Maintenance Supervisor Tim Hopkins to WOODTV.

    Purchased with money from an energy bond, the computer was new in the 1980s, replacing one that Hopkins said was “about the size of a refrigerator.”

    The computer is never turned off and runs on a 1200-bit modem. There have been a few updates in the past 30 years, despite the difficulty in sourcing parts.

    “It’s a very unique product,” said Hopkins. “How it runs, the software that it’s running, is unique to Commodore.”

    Long before the MacBook and handheld tablets, the Amiga led the pack of family computers in the

  • This latest viral video is sure to leave you feeling ‘beary’ happy!

    Dick was rescued from a bear bile farm where he was underfed and kept in a small cage. His bile was extracted and sold, generally for use in traditional medicine.

    This brown bear is now living at an animal sanctuary and is loving every minute of it… except for the adorable frustration captured in this video, where you see him struggling to reach a tree branch.  

    You have to give this bear some credit, he does not give up, and eventually he is victorious!

    It’s enough to curdle your clotted cream!

    The Scotch egg – that slightly snooty stand-by of semi-sophisticated snacking in the U.K. – has been banned from a school in Colchester, England, branded as common junk food.

    The Telegraph newspaper reported Tuesday that Cherry Tree Primary School has declared the eggs – hard-boiled, and blanketed in sausage meat and breadcrumbs – “too unhealthy to be part of a balanced diet,” and is confiscating them from students’ lunchboxes.

    Scotch egg enthusiasts may feel slighted – and they are far from alone.

    The dividing line between acceptable and unacceptable school food is vague and nebulous. It varies greatly from place to place – and from time to time.

    In Norwich, England, a controversy recently erupted after a headmistress, who insists her students eat fruit or vegetables as an 11 AM snack, confiscated a six-year-old boy’s biscuits.

    “My son had been taking Rich Tea biscuits into school since last September, which was agreed by his
