Open Post: Hosted By The Grandma And Her Accidental Thanksgiving Guest Who Are Spending Their 7th Turkey Day Together
While Thanksgiving is sold as the day when we should be thankful for everything and everyone in our lives, many people struggle with complicated familial relationships this time of year. Most of us don’t get to choose our families, but it seems like Wanda Dench and Jamal Hinton have done just that. A few years ago, they went viral when Wanda inadvertently texted a Thanksgiving dinner invitation to Jamal that was meant for her grandson. Jamal asked if he could come to dinner anyway, and Wanda didn’t hesitate to welcome him to her table; today will mark the seventh Thanksgiving they’ve spent together.
In 2020, Mariana Varela (Miss Argentina) and Fabiola Valentín (Miss Puerto Rico) faced off at the Miss Grand International 2020 beauty pageant. Now, if movies like Drop Dead Gorgeous have taught us anything, these beauty queens will do anything to win. Sabotage, back-stabbing, even… (dun dun duuun) MURDER!

Introducing the new Missuses Argentina-Puerto Rico! Continue reading
Here’s something to brighten your day. What’s better than one kitten? An army of kittens! That’s what one man discovered when he stepped out of his car to investigate why a solitary kitten was roaming the streets for tail like it was Jon Voight in Midnight Cowboy.

“Um, that’s a really weird-looking X Box X, which is what I REALLY wanted for Christmas.” – Lenny the Chihuahua while sniffing his present in that screenshot.
Anybody with even a tenth of a working brain cell will tell you that surprising someone with the gift of a living, breathing puppy is the opposite of a good idea. So I’m assuming that a Chihuahua puppy friend was at the top of Lenny’s wish list to Santa, and I’m also assuming that Lenny’s humans subscribe to Santa Prime because they got Lenny’s special gift extra early. And in a viral TikTok video, they show the moment when Lenny met his new puppy pal Ernie. I know, what a missed opportunity to not name their new puppy Squiggy!
If you’re in the mood to feel a little warmness in your heart area today (and I’m not talking about warmness caused by heartburn from swallowing a ton of Royal Dansk cookies so you can use the tin to store more of your sewing supplies), please take a break from trying not to look bored on a Christmas Zoom call with your family to watch this awww-inducing video of a man rescuing Rudolph’s Wisconsinite cousin.
Meet Shredder, the pet rescue raccoon who both loooves water and refuses to believe that it’s a liquid, not a solid. In a recent video posted by his human, Shredder uses his cute little paws and teeny tiny mouth in a futile attempt to catch the water coming out of a garden hose. Awwww, da baby is confuse-ed!
