• Arnold Schwarzenegger pranks fans for charity

    He said he’d be back, and he wasn’t lying

    He said he’d be back, and he wasn’t lying.

    To help promote his new Terminator Genisys movie, Arnold Schwarzenegger brilliantly terrorized the streets of Hollywood.

    First Schwarzenegger pranked fans at the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum by standing so perfectly still that no one would assume that he was anything other than his wax counterpart. 

    “He looks real,” said one woman posing with what she thought was a Schwarzenegger wax figure.

    “That’s because I am,” the actor said as he ‘came to life,’ causing the woman to literally jump back.

    But she was far from the only one.

    As he took a picture with a young boy, he turned to him and said, “No touching.”

    Naturally, the boy ran away as quickly as his feet would allow him.

    The people seeking photos weren’t the only ones getting pranked, however – the cameramen were too.

    “You want to come in the shot, too?” he asked a woman who was taking the photo, with his hand reached out.

    She ran away, proving that ‘flight’ is the more popular approach than

  • This raccoon just couldn't help himself.This raccoon just couldn't help himself.

    Raccoons are known for their thievery, but this little guy may also be an alcoholic.

    A raccoon broke into a warehouse, and instead of finding food, the furry creature found alcohol. He got wasted.

    Workers, at an alcoholic distribution warehouse, captured the raccoon on video stumbling all over the place and drinking from broken beer bottles.

    As seen on video, the critter definitely had a tough night at the warehouse: a beer case toppled over on the ground, scattering cans and bottles of beer everywhere.

    After having a few sips, the raccoon awkwardly attempts to escape the drunkard’s paradise, but not before completely wiping out at the doorway, much to the entertainment of the shop workers.

    With over 500,000 hits, the hilarious video is sure to make anyone’s day but let’s hope this poor guy makes a fast recovery from his hangover.

  • Broken Dreams: A jaded divorcee breaks all of his and his wife's possessions in half.Broken Dreams: A jaded divorcee breaks all of his and his wife's possessions in half.

    When a couple breaks up, laws stipulate a fair division of matrimonial property. This German man, however, took the term ‘splitting up’ quite literally.

    Going by the online name of ‘Der Juli,’ this jaded divorcee is breaking everything he and his ex-wife owned in half.

    The man posted a video on YouTube entitled ‘For Laura’. In it, he stars alongside an array of power tools that he uses to break apart various pieces of the couple’s furniture, electronic items, and even a car.

    The translated description of the video reads: “Thank you for 12 ‘beautiful’ years, Laura! You’ve really earned half.”

    The video has so far racked up more than 1.6 million views, with one of the viewers writing: “fortunately they did not share children.”

    The video ends with a sarcastic sign-off that reads: “greetings to my successor.”

    According to ‘Der Juli,’ he will be selling his portions on eBay.

    Items currently up for grabs include a massacred REM record, a mailbox, a bicycle, a Samsung TV and an Apple

  • Sydney cat Ozzie has made his way to Northern Ireland. Source: Cats Protection.Sydney cat Ozzie has made his way to Northern Ireland. Source: Cats Protection.

    A cat can go a long way over the course of his or her nine lives.  

    Take Ozzie, a 25-year-old feline, recently found in County Armagh, Ireland. The shocking fact: he was registered in 2000 in Sydney, Australia – a distance of 10,500 miles away.  

    Picked up as a stray, scouring a family’s garden for food, the search is on to find the travelling cat’s owner – and how he found his way across the world.

    “The poor cat was starving but obviously had been cared for in the past because it was wearing a collar,” Gillian McMullen, co-ordinator of the Armagh Branch of Cats Protection, said to the UK’s Cats Protection organization.

    A check of the cat’s microchip also revealed he had visited a vet clinic in London in 2004, but was released as a stray.

    The Armagh Rescue Centre has launched an appeal for help in finding out more information on the globe-trotting cat on Facebook in hopes someone will come forward. Ozzie, also known as Tigger, is currently undergoing treatment for kidney dialysis.

  • This scene from Jurassic World has spawned a hilarious meme currently trending on social media.This scene from Jurassic World has spawned a hilarious meme currently trending on social media.

    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.

  • 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!”

    YouTuber Franxinus Excelsior had the idea to put the funny clips together and challenge viewers

    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.
