‘Jeopardy’ Contestant Hilariously Confuses Chaka Khan With African Royalty

Published

on

Sadly, the “Queen Of Funk” is not a title recognized as actual royalty.

Remember being in middle school and the teacher asking a question you just swore you knew so your shot your hand up like a rocket and confidently projected your answer to the whole class only to have it be completely wrong? Well Sarah Jett Rayburn, a contestant on last night’s Jeopardy, knows exactly how that feels except instead of thirty twelve-year-olds giggling at her she has the entire internet laughing at her gaffe.

During the episode, the Texan writer/stay-at-home mom chose a $2000 clue which read: “Here, as on each September 24, Zulus celebrate the holiday that was named in honor of this warrior leader of the early 1800s.” Now to be fair I don’t know many people who are versed enough in African history to have answered this correctly but I do know most of us probably wouldn’t have given the answer Rayburn gave…”who is Chaka Khan?”

In an all too relatable moment, Rayburn realizes her mistake and throws up her hands as if to say “What the funk was I thinking…?” The correct response was Shaka Zulu (sometimes spelled Chaka Zulu), the great warrior leader and most certainly not Chaka Khan…the every woman. Don’t feel too bad for Rayburn though, she ended up winning the night and brought her two-day total to $39,400. Could build a whole Chaka Khan shrine with those earnings.

Adorable Kid Dressed As ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ Character Goes Viral And Gets A Sweet Gift From Creator

Published

And when the world needed him most…he went viral!

Earlier this month one of the best cartoons ever became available on Netflix. That’s right 12 years after its series finale aired, Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender is now streaming and fans everywhere are binging the series in just a matter of days. And I know this personally because I’ve proudly run through the series already…twice. Well one of the show’s biggest little fans has gone viral after a photo posted three years ago resurfaced and everyone’s taking notice.

Avatar fan Natasha Townsel Jenkins took to social media to share the news that three year old photos of her son, Noah, have started gaining attention since the animated series is back in the headlines. In the photos, Noah is dressed as the shows protagonist, Avatar Aang, and his costume is amazing! Not only is the clothing spot on but the look is completed with a replica of Aang’s staff and miniature version of his flying bison, Appa. Of course social media blew up with users applauding the cute cosplay but one important person in particular took notice. Dave Scheidt, the writer for the canonical comics which were created after the series ended, loved the costume so much he decided to send Noah a gift, a signed copy of the latest comic.

In the post, Natasha thanks everyone for the overwhelming support and jokes that Noah has no clue he is an internet celebrity. Humble just like an avatar!

‘Can You Spot The Predator?’ Is The Latest Challenge Driving The Internet Insane

Published

on

It’s an apex puzzle.

Nothing gets my mind churning more than a good internet challenge. Seriously, when I am laying in bed in the middle of the night fixating on some embarrassing thing I said in the third grade, a good internet challenge is just the distraction I look for. Well, the latest one to go viral involves a trick on the eyes and let me assure you, it’s greeeeaaaaat!

Twitter user @Joy_Bishnoi posted a photo of a deer and asked followers if they could spot a predator. Now, the deer is in the middle of a heavily wooded area so the answer might not be as easy to find as you may think. I stared at the photo for longer than I’d care to admit and even thought that there could be a deep, existential answer like “humans are the predators to all wildlife,” but no there is actually a predator lurking in this photo. Can you spot it?

Need a hint? Ok the predator is striped and loves Frosted Flakes. Still can’t find it? *SPOILER ALERT* It’s a tiger and it’s hiding in the bushes in the top left corner of the photo! The camouflage of the big cat makes it nearly impossible to see at first glance.

The post has garnered a ton of answers with some hitting the nail on the head and others missing the mark completely. One user figured it out because “the ear gave it away.” Another looked a little deeper into the picture and said “the predator is the deer whereas its prey could be the grass I believe.” I mean he’s not wrong but I don’t think deer are considered a threat unless you’re driving down the New Jersey Turnpike in the middle of the night and one of these guys challenges you to a game of chicken. And one user who gave up on the search completely wrote “after seeing this picture I didn’t get busy searching for a predator, but got lost in the beauty of nature.” Still wrong but at least it’s a beautiful way to be wrong. 

So, did you spot the predator? Share with your friends and see which one of you has the eye of the tiger!

Aussie Dad Built A Giant Laughing Kookaburra To ‘Cheer Us Up’

Published

What a kook…aburra.

There are days during quarantine where I’ll jog twenty blocks and come home feeling super productive. Then I see a Tweet about a man who built a 1,600 pound, giant, laughing kookaburra and I realize I have no idea what productivity really is.

Artist Dr. Farvadin Daliri from the city of Townsville, Australia, began building the giant laughing bird last Christmas. When the quarantine was put into place, however, Daliri really kicked his construction into high gear and used his free time to complete the kookaburra. The massive fowl measures nearly 15 feet tall and 28 feet wide and has become the talk of the town…sville. Daliri told the Guardian “People just adore it. A lot of people overlooked from the roadside and saw this huge monster sitting here and wanted to know what it is.”

As for why the doctor built the bird in the first place the answer is quite simple, to spread joy. Daliri told Buzzfeed “I wanted to make something out of the ordinary to cheer us up, relieve our stress and make us optimistic.” What better way to cheer people up then by spreading laughter, literally! This isn’t Daliri’s first time at the giant animal rodeo either as he has constructed giant koalas and snakes to showcase at a cultural festival in his hometown. This is the first time the artist has gone viral, however, as his daughter’s Tweet has already garnered over a hundred thousand likes.
