    Jurassic World may have received a lot of attention for its record-breaking opening weekend at the box office, but there’s one scene in particular that has quickly emerged as a fan favourite. 

    You probably know the scene we’re talking about, even if you haven’t seen the movie. Owen Grady, played by the affable Chris Pratt, attempts to tame three threatening velociraptors (pictured above) with hes best "back off" stance.

    It’s one of the most recognizable moments from the movie’s trailer and, thanks to zookeepers the world over, it’s now breathing new life as a meme. 

    Zookeepers everywhere have taken the scene and made it their own, hilariously recreating the moment with the animals they care for. It all started on Tumblr where one zookeeper re-enacted Pratt’s scene with three walruses.

    "My bestie is a zoo keeper, and she told me that because of Jurassic World it has become a craze in the keeper community (!) to re-enact Chris Pratt," wrote Talia on Tumblr.

    It didn’t take long for

  • 4-year-old giggles through her first aerobatic ride

    The fearless little girl is shown laughing hysterically while her father performs intricate loops in the air

    You may think that taking a four-year-old on a heart racing aerobatic plane flight may be too scary at her young age, but this little girl is proving that it’s never too early to be brave.

    A French Canadian pilot decided that it was time to show his daughter the world from various, hair-raising angles from way up in the sky.

    Recorded on an aircraft dashcam, the fearless little girl is shown laughing hysterically while her father performs intricate loops in the air.  

    The video starts off with Raphael Langumier, who’s piloting the plane, and his daughter Léa, who’s sitting behind him with bright pink headphones on, taking off from the runway. During the ascent, Léa looks rather unimpressed, sporting a blank stare while aimlessly looking out of the window.

    When the plane reaches altitude, the pilot tells the little girl he's accelerating and starting to perform the first trick. As the plane begins to invert, the four-year-old breaks out into a fit of giggles, impossibly amused.

    Talk about reading in between the lines.

    Crossword-loving lawyer, Matthew Dick, decided to take an unconventional route and hide his marriage proposal in a newspaper’s daily puzzle after persuading London’s The Times to let him, Metro News reports.

    The crossword opened with one across: “Pretty Welsh girl widely thought not to be all there.”

    The answer? His girlfriend’s name, “Delyth,” of course.  

    Dick, 38, told The Times that he showed his girlfriend the crossword during breakfast, with some choice words and phrases underlined. Then, he “reached into [his] pocket to reveal a ring.”

    “She looked so surprised and didn’t say anything for about 30 seconds, before then saying ‘No,’ which she thought was hilarious,” he said. “But she did then say ‘Yes’ and I had to tell her this was the real Times crossword, not something I had printed out myself.”

    Delyth said that she was “dumbfounded that he’d gone to such lengths.”

    But, because Delyth knows the man that she’s going to marry, she said

    What does $20,000 worth of ‘relentlessly gay’ décor look like?

    Thanks to a mean-spirited letter which has inspired a GoFundMe campaign, we may soon find out.

    Julie Baker of Baltimore, Md. says she received a note from her neighbour in response to a row of rainbow solar lamp jars in her front yard, which have “Love” and “Ohana” (Hawaiian for family) written on them.

    It reads:

    Your yard is becoming Relentlessly Gay! Myself and Others in the neighborhood ask that you Tone it Down. This is a Christian area and there are Children. Keep it up and I will be forced to call the police on You! Your kind need to have Respect for GOD.

    The letter was posted to Facebook (along with a photo of the jars) by a friend of Baker’s. Since the post went up Wednesday night, it has touched a nerve online and inspired everything from a Relentlessly Gay website, t-shirts, plans for a Relentlessly Gay Garden Party (with kid-friendly ideas, of course) and the GoFundMe page, intended to raise money for more

  • Usually, team photos involve wearing the uniform and smiling for the camera, but one team took a whole new approach on the traditional group shot.

    A girls’ softball team in Oklahoma has attracted a lot of attention with their Disney-inspired team picture. Earlier this week, mom and photographer Betsy Gregory posted her photo on Facebook and it was instantly shared by thousands across the Internet, including celebrities like Zooey Deschanel.

    The team is made up of four and five-year-old girls who dressed as Elsa from the Disney movie Frozen for their picture. In the cute photo, captured by Gregory, the girls are seen sporting blue dresses and making some serious tough girl faces. Gregory’s daughter is the catcher on the team, standing in the middle of the photo.  

    “What started as a little spark of imagination has turned into something much greater,” Gregory told The Huffington Post. “What a great memory this will be for these girls many years down the road!”

    You can always count on the Reddit to find the funniest, most random things that the Internet has to offer.

    A Reddit user, or ‘Redditor,’ as they call themselves, took to the crowdsourcing website to ask others what their favourite 10-second-or-less video was.

    With more than five-thousand responses, naturally, hilarity ensued.

    But rather than have to watch each clip individually, YouTuber Franxinus Excelsior had the genius idea to put them all together in a 7-minute compilation video.

    How far are you able to make it without laughing? Let the games begin!

    A word of warning, however, some people may find a few of these clips offensive.

    [Warning: Video contains coarse language]

    Instead of just editing the clips together, he decided to up the ante by inviting us, the viewers, to engage in a little game: to see how long we can watch without laughing.  

    The video has more than 50 short clips, ranging from mishaps, to epic fails, to funny animals and more.

    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.

    Photo from My Stealthy Freedom Facebook page.Photo from My Stealthy Freedom Facebook page.

    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.”
