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.

A little aca-quarantine can’t stop these bad belters.

A lot of casts have been virtually reuniting during this quarantine with some distant gatherings more memorable than others. Of course, anytime the ladies of Pitch Perfect get together it’s a singing spectacular that goes viral almost instantly and this time is no different.

Elizabeth Banks and John Michael Higgins reprised their roles as the hostile hosts of the a cappella singing competitions, Gail Abernathy-McKadden-Feinberg and John Smith respectively, as they introduced the Barden Bellas. The powerhouse singers including Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow, Hailee Steinfeld, Chrissie Fit, and Hannah Mae Lee then crush their rendition of Beyoncé’s “Love On Top.” And you know if you’re going to cover Queen Bey it better be good. Oh and streaming the song will not only sound good but it will some good too because proceeds from downloads of the cover will benefit UNICEF’s efforts to support children in Lebanon and around the world who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Aca-amazing!

Gay Couple Sends A Hilarious Video Message To The Thief That Stole The Pride Flag From Their Porch

Published

Oh, rainbow you di’n’t.

A gay couple in Chicago became victims of theft when some jerk took the Pride flag from their porch. Rather than admit defeat, the adorable couple decided to fight back in the most hilarious way possible…buy and display more like flags…like a lot more!

Taking to TikTok to share their story, the couple begins by addressing “the person who stole the Pride flag off our front porch,” then satirically apologizing with “we’re so sorry a rainbow bruised your fragile ego.” The couple reassures the thief that there will be plenty more flags to come because they have “next-day Amazon prime.” The video goes on to show all the ways the new flags will be displayed on the front porch…including the magic trick in which one of the boyfriends pulls a never ending rainbow handkerchief from his mouth!

The whole video is brilliant and a great reiteration that we should never be ashamed of who we are. In fact, we should embrace it! The video ends with the gentle reminder that “you can keep taking our flag but you can never take our pride.” Amen to that!
