Per the local news affiliate, the runner consistently defecates on the sidewalk outside a local family’s home. Homeowner Cathy Budde says she’d expected an end to the madness after confronting the runner in person one fateful day.
“I thought for sure she’s mortified, it was an accident, she’ll go get a dog bag, come back, clean it up, and never run here ever again,” she said. “Not the case.” Read more…
It’s no secret that children love to play dress up – especially when mom’s closet happens to be that of Queen Bey’s. The mini fashionista paired the glittered heels with matching pink-printed pajamas. Read more…
Another celebrity is calling out the use of photo editing in magazines — this time in French publication Madame Figaro.
Emily Ratajkowski, the magazine’s latest cover star, says she’s disappointed that her lips and breasts appear edited in the final photo. To illustrate her point, the model shared what she says is the un-retouched original photo alongside Madame Figaro‘s cover.
Only in a news climate so ludicrous as 2017’s could a storyline this farfetched seem so incredible:
The internet thinks Kevin Durant is arguing with trolls on a secret Twitter account.
Yes, you heard it right the first time. The cyber sleuths of the internet are whole-heartedly convinced the NBA champion and Finals MVP Kevin Durant is wading into the annals of Twitter and Instagram to clap back at those who insult him, armed with the invisible cloak that are fake social media accounts.

Light the candles, word nerds: It’s lexicographer Samuel Johnson’s 308th birthday.
In celebration, Monday’s Google Doodle honors Johnson, known best as writer of A Dictionary of the English Language, published in 1755.

After wantonly lying to the American public for six straight months, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has already been forgiven. And he didn’t even have to say I’m sorry.
Spicer made a surprise cameo appearance at last night Emmys, much to the delight of the audience’s supposedly anti-Trump elites and the chagrin of everyone who had to watch this shit at home. After wheeling onto the stage with an SNL-inspired moving podium, Spicer was rewarded with generous rounds of liberal applause and a bemused Melissa McCarthy GIF.
It’s more than just the Emmys. “Spicey” has escaped punishment precisely because we’ve turned him into a slapstick pop culture meme, then absolved his crimes with a no-need-for-forgiveness tour. Read more…
