People Are Wearing Inflatable Costumes While Walking Their Dogs In Funny New Trend

Published

on

Pet care during a quarantine isn’t always a walk in the park…unless you decide to have some fun with it.

Over two weeks of social distancing has proven to be *ruff*. With the social distancing guidelines getting stricter as each day passes, people are being forced to find unique ways to stay cheerfully occupied. Out of this need for comic relief came a new trend I think we can all get behind…walking your dog while wearing an inflatable costume. We have seen videos featuring these inflatable costumes go viral time and time again but there is something about adding a pup to the equation that makes them all the more entertaining.

One Reddit user posted a video of their walk with their dogs while dressed in a unicorn inflatable. In the 27-second video it is hard to tell who is enjoying the walk more because both the unicorn and the pups look so damn happy. Redditers were quick to comment on just how this wholesome content made their day: “I love that there are people out there willing to do things like this to bring a smile to someone’s face.” Another noted that the dogs must be used to their owners flare for dramatics – “And the dogs are so nonchalant about it, like they do this all the time!”

Going for a walk from r/rarepuppers

Another dog owner, Melissa Tolen, decided to give others something to giggle about and threw on a T-rex costume on her daily stroll with the 5-month old Ember. She told a local news source in Indiana that her goal was to bring smiles to the little kids that are stuck at home. I might not be a little kid but I sure did smile from ear to ear! More of this!

A Facebook user over in Scotland shared a video of an inflated Stegosaurus taking it’s dog for a stroll just days after the country enforced strict social distancing guidelines. You can hear giggles coming from behind the camera so it seems like it’s another mission accomplished for this pup-dino duo.

It’s safe to say that we can all use some wholesome laughs during these troubling times. Let’s keep the whacky dog walks going and share this with friends!

An Olympian Swam A Full Pool Lap With A Glass Of Chocolate Milk On Her Head And Everyone’s Impressed

Published

on

Olympic counsel, please consider making this an official sport.

In order to become an Olympic athlete you have to train for years. Push your mind and body to their physical limits. Strive to never give up. And most importantly, learn to balance a glass of chocolate milk on your head. Ok that last one isn’t really necessary for the Olympics but makes for an epic social media post.

Five-time, Olympic gold winner Katie Ledecky took to Instagram to share a video of herself completing an entire pool lap with a glass of chocolate milk balanced on her head. The pro-swimmer used a snorkel to help her breathe as she Nesquick-ly crossed the pool without spilling a single drop! Calling the lap “possibly one of the best swims of [her] career,”  Ledecky shared that the swim was part of the #GotMilkChallenge on TikTok. The challenge’s guidelines are pretty simple: “Got milk? Time to show us what else you got! Step 1: Pour a glass of milk. Step 2: Do something AMAZING–and don’t spill! Step 3: Sip to prove you still ‘got milk’.” I feel bad for whoever tries to follow this stunt.

The 15-time world champion swimmer is no stranger to chocolate milk. Back in 2019, Ledecky partnered with Built by Chocolate Milk and has shared the benefits of the drinking the choccy drink after intense training. As for the swim that has social media buzzing, Ledecky said “I was like freezing in my core so hard because I can’t move, I had to stay so still.” Oh, so that’s what a core is for!

Giant Asparagus Stalk Causes Quite The Stir On Social Media

Published

Who would have asparaguessed?

Over the weekend, photos of a giant asparagus plant began circulating Twitter with many users stunned to learn that the plant can grow to be the size of a small tree. I was one of those users because I’ve never seen an asparagus stem longer than a fork…I’ve never seen a bunch that wasn’t ridiculously overpriced either, might I add. The sad reality is that most of us eat things everyday with absolutely no idea as to how they are  grown and farmed. I can honestly say I was always more preoccupied by the thought of the funny smelling, post-asparagus-eating pee that it never occurred to me that these plants could become overgrown. And overgrown is a bit of an overstatement.

The stem in the picture looks to be over 8 feet tall. My pee would smell funny for a whole year after eating that. The photos have sparked a debate on Twitter with some saying the plants showcased are not asparagus but agave plants instead. While asparagus stems can grow to be about 5 feet tall, agave plants can grow much taller and even bloom flowers. I have zero interest in horticulture but plenty of interest in what’s funny so I just collected a few of the funniest reactions to the asparagus/agave photo here:

‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’ Parodied Dolly Parton To Create A Theme Song For All The ‘Karen’s’ Out There

Published

These “Karens” are workin’ 9 to 5 on our last nerve.

By now you probably know that the term “Karen” is typically reserved for white women who throw tantrums over things that don’t really require tantrum throwing. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the “Karens” have been especially vocal about not wanting to wear a mask usually citing constitutional freedom as the reason. Over the passed few weeks we have seen headlines about these women coughing on pro-maskers, verbally assaulting eye witnesses and even destroying property all to prove the point that they can and will do whatever they want. It’s annoying. Well, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert took the these suburban lemons and turned them into a hilarious pitcher of lemonade with a parody of the Dolly Parton classic “Jolene,” appropriately renamed “Karen.”

The PSA begins with actual news footage covering the stories of anti-maskers before cutting to a vintage clip of Parton in a pink jumpsuit with an anonymous singer belting out the altered lyrics which poke fun at all the angry scene makers. “You go on rants at Trader Joe’s, sit on the ground at the Costco, say wearing masks is the devil’s law,” the unseen singer croons. “Karen, Karen, Karen, Karen, please just wear a mask you big dumbass” she continues to implore.

Like all good satire, the video is hilarious but also contains an important message. The CDC as well as countless medical professionals have all agreed that wearing a mask is the best way to prevent the spread of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Wear a mask! And check out the funny video below!
