This is a video of a raccoon named Buriburi sitting down like a human who’s had a day and eating a persimmon (minus the seed) in three elegant bites as its owner captures the entire moment on video. It was brought to my attention via this tweet, and I have watched it approximately 15 times in the past few minutes.
That warm, fuzzy feeling I’m getting—is it asphyxiation at the hands of an art director or just my eyes rolling so far back in my head that all the blood vessels just pop?
Try to watch this one without cracking a smile. Go on, I dare you. It's literally impossible.
This Jeopardy contestant tried. He really did try.
This adorable little boy is probably the world's biggest Frozen fan and he is not afraid to show his love for the movie's signature song.
This Baby's thought process: What is even happening? Why are there two of them? Why do they look alike? I need an adult! I NEED AN ADULT!
Baily and Bennett are in love. Baily and Bennett are four. Baily and Bennett are giving the rest of us a run for our money when it comes to penning sweet nothings to one's sweetheart. Who needs "you complete me" when you've got magic tricks and battling robots.
In an attempt to introduce small children to the joys of eating eel ("no, it's a snake") and "orange stuff," New York City restaurant Daniel invited a whole group of them to nosh on fish eggs and "little forests" of arugula that would normally cost $220. Their reactions, unsurprisingly, are priceless.
Everyone, meet Belle, a six-week old terrier who should be roughly eight times her size. Instead, she's the size of a small, and not particularly robust, rodent. She's adorable, yes but her story is also amazing. And she goes everywhere in a handbag, so that's pretty boss, too. (Do we still say "boss?")
Welcome to toddler divorce court, where hearts are broken due to arguments about whether it's raining or sprinkling and the judge is a confused three-year-old who has no idea what's going on or why someone is screaming "You're not real and you huwt me!" Oh those tender, tender feelings.
Adorable little Scarlett, the girl who owned the internet this week by inviting her grandparents to "fuck your mouth," has issued a tiny and laughably insincere apology for her cursing. Like Scarlett, I'd like to take this time to apologize for getting what she said wrong. It was "fucking hell." A mea culpa from both…
Toddlers sure love surprises. And I bet the parents of this little girl were also pleasantly surprised by the string of swear words that emanated from her adorable lips when they poured a pot of water on her. From whence only babble came before, now came an unholy cursing of epic proportions.
Lyla Hogan was recently the youngest person to ever try the tasting Menu at The French Laundry, an eatery which known blowhard Anthony Bourdain has called "the best restaurant in the world, period." What did Lyla think of the 5 hour-plus food experience? Well, she liked the ginger ale and the bathroom!
A local Pennsylvania news segment on the Wayne County Fair went from zero to adorable when a local boy named Noah Ritter was handed the mic and was so cute that everyone forgot what the news segment was about in the first place.
Emmett (toddler) and Erling (WWII Vet) bonded over a tomato patch. Now they're best friends who ride bikes, play croquet (omgomgomg), and race mowers. This is probably going to turn into a TV movie and I will watch it and cry every time I have a bad day. (Which is most days because I am a grumpy and disagreeable…
A transgender boy has received a new birth certificate from the Canadian province of Alberta officially recognising his sex as male.
Congratulations to Ansun Sujoe and Sriram Hathwar! The two teenagers are the winners of the 2014 Scripps National Spelling Bee, marking the first time the event has resulted in a tie in 52 years.
A new poster from a Japanese school informational materials publisher explains lesbian, gay, bisexual, and asexual identities with easy to understand (Japanese) explanations and cute illustrations.
At the risk of turning this blog into your Facebook Newsfeed (and I promise you I will only post 1-345 photos of my future children to my wall per week!), here's a video of babies overcome with excitement at seeing their dads. Goddamnit it, babies, every time I complain about you, you go and do something adorable.…
I don't know what's wrong with me, you guys. This video of a little girl named Emma walking her gentle horse Cinnamon is one of the most joyous things ever and yet here I am — crying like a big, stupid idiot baby.
