A Toronto Writer Live-Tweeted a First Date So Horrible It’s HILARIOUS

Jul 17, 2015 By Megan Berman 0

First dates can be really nerve-wracking, and it’s probably safe to assume that your date won’t be the smooth, suave, and charming person they usually are in their everyday life.

But that’s no excuse for having a complete nightmare first date like the one Toronto writer Anne Thériault recently witnessed and live-tweeted.

It begins with Anne catching sight of the disastrous date…

Maybe this guy is a little nervous?

Nope, he’s just a moron.

James Franco never did seem like the selfless type.

This Waitress Made a Beautiful Gesture Towards Customers Who Had Just Lost Their Baby

Jun 30, 2015 By Megan Berman 0

Debbie and Shaun Riddle eat at West Side Cafe in Fort Worth, Texas pretty regularly.

They hadn’t stopped by in over a month, however, so they were a little surprised when their server, Kayla Lane, remembered them when they stopped in for a bite to eat recently.

They made small talk, and Kayla asked about their infant daughter Glory, who she recalled seeing during their last visit…

But she didn’t realize that, sadly, Glory had passed away in her sleep from an unknown cause only a few short weeks ago.

And when the grieving parents told her what had happened, she felt terrible, she told CBS:

I’m like, ‘Oh gosh, I made them remember!’ even though it’s going through their minds all day, every day.

Determined to do something for the family to make up for her faux-pas, Kayla did the only thing she could think of: she picked up their check.

If You Think Women’s Sports Are Boring, Amy Poehler and Seth Myers Would Like a Word

Jun 25, 2015 By Megan Berman 0

Like any sane person, Mark Mravic, Assistant Managing Editor of Sports Illustrated thinks that women’s soccer is awesome. But he’d heard that his colleague, Andy Benoit, who covers the NFL for Sports Illustrated disagrees…

Then Andy decided to clarify: it’s not just women’s soccer that isn’t worth his precious time — it’s all women’s sports. Because that’s so much better!

Well, Andy, Seth Myers and Amy Poehler have a question for you…

Benoit’s tweets have, predictably, since been deleted. But that doesn’t mean the internet has forgotten them…

Watch A Rescued Circus Lion Run Around Outside for the First Time in His Life

Jun 24, 2015 By Megan Berman 0

The life of a circus animal is often unfulfilled; constantly on the move, they are confined to metal cages, away from their own kind, and more often than not, are abused.

But for Will, a 13-year-old lion who spent his entire life in a Brazilian traveling circus, all that is about to come to a glorious end.

Watch him feel the grass under his paws for the first time ever

Will was rescued by the Rancho dos Gnomos Santuário (the Ecological Sanctuary Association – Rancho dos Gnomos) in São Paulo, Brazil, which has dedicated nearly 25 years to caring for neglected and abandoned domestic and wild animals, rescuing them from accidents, abuse, circuses, trafficking and habitat loss.

You’d never know he spend his entire long life in captivity — he sprung out of that cage like a kitten!

15 Subtle But Shocking Photoshopped Images of Already Beautiful Celebrities

Jun 17, 2015 By Megan Berman 0

Flip through any magazine, and you’ll see gorgeous women gracing every page. These celebrities are so beautiful and perfect, you can hardly believe they’re real.

It’s no secret that they’ve had some help to look the way they do — lighting, teams of makeup artists and hair stylists, and of course the fabulous clothes — but it can still set regular women up for unrealistic expectations.

But even with all that help, someone at the top always thinks the images of these women still need to be altered within an inch of their lives. Enter Photoshop…

If you look at the “before” pictures and then the “after” pictures, you can’t always see exactly what changes they made. But then when you see them compared one after the other, the alterations are surprisingly drastic…
