Given how popular cats are on the internet, it’s no surprise that Friskies — makers of delicious cat food (or so our cats tell us) for over 50 years — recently rolled out a line of tablet-based apps just for cats. Featuring movements, shapes and colors tailored to appeal to kitty’s sensibilities, your feline friend can now download titles like ‘Cat Fishing’ ‘Tasty Treasures Hunt’ and ‘Party Mix-Up’ from the iTunes App Store and Android Market (if you don’t mind a couple of scratches on your screen). Watch some cats test drive the apps below:
For a professional singer, there are few gaffes more embarrassing than flubbing a line from 'The Star Spangled Banner.' (Are you listening, Christina Aguilera?) But when these pint-sized patriots get caught up on the lyrics, well, it's just flat-out adorable. The more mess-ups, the merrier.
As Della Reese once said in the 1996 Martin Lawrence classic of the same name, “It’s a thin line between love and hate.” Mackie the Boston Terrier clearly has some strong feeling about being tickled, but whether “Please sir, may I have another?” or “If you touch me again, I’m going to explode” is up for interpretation. Either way, it manifests itself with a series of delightful facial expressions the Mackie’s owner caught on camera:
Hope she wasn’t planning to make meringue. Charlotte Matthews, a cake decorator from Rochdale, England beat the odds this past Sunday when she cracked open 29 double-yolk eggs in a row. According to PoultryHelp.com, these unusual eggs result when “ovulation occurs too rapidly or when one yolk somehow gets ‘lost’ and is joined by the next yolk.” The chance of even finding one is estimated at one in 1,000.
After cracking open 13 double yolks in a row, she asked her husband to film as she went through the rest of the box she purchased from an Asda supermarket, a British subsidiary of Wal-Mart.
American popular music has been around since before America even declared its independence. ‘Yankee Doodle,’ anyone? That classic was sung by Colonial American soldiers as early as The French and Indian War.
Since then, our country has established one of the richest musical traditions in the world. Many songs even deal with America itself, from ‘God Bless America’ to ‘God Bless the USA.’
Here’s a list of 10 to add to your Fourth of July playlist.
When a Chihuahua named Yoda took the stage, she was just the latest pup to win the title of World’s Ugliest Dog. But when she accidentally fell off, she tumbled headlong into an elite class of celebrity — those who have been caught on video taking a spill on stage, including megastars Rihanna, Beyoncé, Keith Urban and Justin Bieber. Luckily, Yoda was unharmed by the fall.
There’s no doubting the ease and creativity with which this gentleman avoids an oncoming train. Courtesy of UK based YouTuber BlackMoonCGI (who had a hit video a few months ago with his take on what’s inside Dr. Spock’s scanner), with this instructional video you’ll never get stuck with your car on the train tracks again.
Counting sheep is a relaxing way to fall asleep, unless you’re Ci the border collie, in which case it would most likely lead to frightening night terrors. Ci may technically be a sheepdog, but he’s also afraid of sheep, a fear that dates all the way back to puppyhood. According to his 54-year-old owner Jane Lippington, the sheep herding instinct is definitely present in Ci, but instinct can only take him so far.
Given how popular Santa and his reindeer are, you might not expect a deer dashing through a church to be such a big to-do. But security camera footage of a deer decking the crowded halls of Colonial Baptist Church in Cary, North Carolina has become such a sensation, it’s already made international news. This story of forced entry and on-hoof pursuit has piqued a lot of interest. Fortunately, the deer eventually found his way to the exit and went on his merry way without causing too much harm.
Abandoned as a puppy when his owners fled their foreclosed-upon Nebraska home, Naki’o lost all four of his paws to severe frostbite after stepping into a freezing puddle in the home’s abandoned basement. He was rescued, but forced to crawl on his belly to get around. Happily, new owner and veterinary technician Christie Tomlinson successfully organized a fundraiser to have Naki’o’s two back legs fitted with OrthoPets prosthetics. When Naki’o enthusiastically took to his new hind-legs like they were the real deal, OrthoPets founder Martin Kaufmann decided to complete the set free of charge, making Naki’o is the first dog to ever be fitted with four prosthetic limbs.
Margaret lives in Germany and Evan lives in Texas. They’re both in college, which means transcontinental trips are not generally in the cards. Lucky for the young couple, Margaret’s parents decided to fly Evan in as a birthday surprise. In this heartwarming video, which was viewed more than 70,000 times on the first day it was uploaded , Margaret spots Evan at the airport instead of the family friend she was expecting. For the family friend’s sake, we’ll assume that he or she would have been greeted with an equal amount of tears of joy.
For most of us down here on earth, June 7th was a fairly typical day. If you happened to be on the sun, on the other hand, you would have been treated to one of the most massive solar explosions man has ever seen. It may not look all that big in the video — the footage was captured on an ultraviolet camera by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory — but remember, this is the sun we’re looking at here. It’s more than 100 times larger than the Earth.
