Some dude wearing an Australian flag jumped onstage at Eurovision and mooned everyone

TwitterFacebook

Eurovision fans often complain that Australia shouldn’t be included in the contest — after all, it’s not a European country. And now … the critics have quite a bit more fuel for their fire. Or, alternatively, a reason to include the Aussies forever and ever after a stunt on the show’s finale.

Here’s what went down (under). While last year’s winner, Jamala, was performing her number, an enthusiastic man wearing an Australian flag somehow got himself onto the stage. He then proceeded to moon everyone. Fun!

And the internet, predictably, went wild. (Worth noting: many people watching Eurovision had been drinking for a while at this point.) Read more…

Huckleberry likes to hang out on the roof. This is fine, and Huckleberry does it all the time.

Seriously, no worries: Huckleberry has simply learned to jump from his backyard onto the roof. (12/10, good job.) And according to a note posted by his human companions, he is not allowed in the backyard when no one is home — so Huckleberry always stays safe.

Thank you so much for your concern, though. Huckleberry really appreciates it and would also like to invite you to follow him on Instagram. Have a good one! Read more…

A thirsty internet descends upon the South Korean president’s hot bodyguard

TwitterFacebook

As we know, the internet loves hot people. And the latest hot person to capture its attention is South Korean president Moon Jae-in’s new bodyguard.

To be fair, he is very handsome. Also, since he is a bodyguard, he is never photographed smiling, which makes him seem mysterious. Cool!

Anyway, the internet is smitten. Some people have even gotten a head start on their fanfic, which is honestly commendable. The heart wants what the heart wants!

TwitterFacebook

The firestorm of political outrage and intrigue following President Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey has led some to call for increased scrutiny and perhaps even official action regarding the move.

TwitterFacebook

With great influence comes great accountability.

Mark Geragos, the Los Angeles-based power attorney behind the leading class action suit against organizers of the infamous Fyre Festival, now says his firm is investigating whether social media “influencers” who hyped the disastrous event could be dragged into the ever-expanding web of lawsuits.

“One of the things we’re toying with is going after social influencers who didn’t comply with [Federal Trade Commission] stuff so, that may be the next wave,” Geragos said late last week on The Adam Carolla Show, where he’s a regular guest. Read more…

Trump finally tweets (and promptly deletes) a unifying message

TwitterFacebook

President Donald Trump is all about togetherness this weekend.

POTUS woke up, skipped his usual vicious Saturday morning tweetstorm, and instead, waited until the afternoon to tweet a simple, yet powerfully unifying two letters in the form of the word: “We.”

Now, we’re assuming this was an accidental tweet — which Trump, along with his Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, are very familiar with — because the message was promptly deleted.

President Trump has already proven to be truly just so horrible at using the social media platform that this comes as no surprise, but the tweet spoke volumes to Trump’s Twitter followers. Read more…

TwitterFacebook

It’s such an obvious idea, but it took a professional artist to think of it: use the FaceApp to give old world art portraits the smiles they deserve.
