Everyone agrees: The most important part of the wedding is the hashtag.
You could have the right dress, cake, and DJ, but if your hashtag fails to inspire and delight your guests, guess what, no one had a good time. The hashtag lives on long after the music ends and leaves an indelible print on your pictures. It’s the first thing that guests ask for and the last thing they forget.
So why would you leave the hashtag up to the amateurs?
Gunning for the title of most millennial job of 2016, Marielle Wakim, a Los Angeles-based magazine editor, is offering personalized wedding for a low, low price. “Happily Ever #Hashtagged,” Wakim’s business offers hashtags, charging $40 for one and $115 for three options. She’s also willing to tag bachelor and bachelorette parties.
Recently, Wakim’s wedding hashtags were featured on Good Morning America, where John Legend didn’t seem too impressed by them. Although, we’re in agreement, the one she wrote for George and Amal Clooney, “AmalYourGeorge,” was pretty solid.
For more on Wakim, check out her interview in Mashable or simply call her because you don’t want your special day to be ruined, do you?

We’re about a month out from the election and the transition into a country run by a billionaire reality TV game show host has not been, uh, smooth. When he’s not Tweeting about SNL, making casual calls to Taiwan, or lying about voter fraud, Trump has been disappointing some of his biggest supporters. For the majority of the country, over 65 million voters, who did not vote for Trump, this would be the chance to say “I told you so,” but we’re all in this together now, and, hoo, boy, we better start getting along.
Still, that doesn’t mean the popular voters can’t have a little fun. So in the spirt of “I told you so,” here comes Trumgrets, a running tumblr of people regretting their vote last month. Not much to it than that, but just like the buyer’s remorse here, you get what you paid for.
Every piece of technology seemingly promises the same thing: Live your life with greater ease and efficiency. However, technology can’t solve the problem of people standing in your way patiently waiting their turn to pay for something.
Or so we think.
Amazon is promising something big with their new product: The end of lines at the grocery store.
With Amazon Go, the shopping giant says that you’ll be able to create a digital list on your phone, scan your phone at the market, and just walk in, grab your items, and leave.
Of course, this type of thing raises a million questions, like ones about the company becoming another piece of the horrific dystopian nightmare that our future is rapidly turning.
Check out what people are saying about Amazon Go.
When you’re Shia LaBeouf, the provactive star of a bunch of movies with big fighting robots, you like to start beef.
Whether you’re wearing a bag on your head in the name of art or you’re ripping off a Daniel Clowes comic for your short film, if you’re Shia LaBeouf, you want to push buttons.
But some buttons should not be pushed, as the real Shia has recently learned.
According to Uproxx, “The rift between the two originates from a new freestyle by LaBeouf premiered on The Breakfast Club by Charlamagne Tha God. On the track, the Transformers star namechecks several different hip-hop figures ranging from Drake and Jean-Claude Van Damme to Lil Yachty and Peter Rosenberg, who LaBeouf rhymed with “frozen turd” in a stroke of genius.”
One person who did not find it to be a particular stroke of genius was Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy, who took to Instagram over the verse.
“Shia, you a b*tch *ss n****, you could never come to Atlanta, you could never come to the streets in the hood. You could never live my life, you need to stick to acting, real shit n****. This rap shit ain’t for you n****, for real have some n**** pull up on you, f*ck Shia LaBeouf n****, f*ck you talking about keep my name out your mouth, you don’t want no beef, on my mama. You better stick to acting n**** cause this sh*t get real.”
The message is clear, Shia: Stay out of Atlanta.
A good bed is hard to come by apparently.
While riding the Sling Shot ride Six Flags Mexico in Mexico City, 15-year-old Daniel Barron Melendez passed four times for up to three seconds at a clip. Get your sleep where you can.
In the video, you can see Daniel’s eyes glaze over and roll back into his head, while the other rider enjoys the ride. Daniel not only passes out during the ride, but in between cat naps, he looks like he’s in physical pain.
According to The Daily Mail, this might have been just another chance for Daniel to meet single ladies.
“Local media reports suggested the teenager may have been trying to impress his friend by going on the ride. Daniel has started getting dating requests on social media from female admirers after posting the video.”
We’ll keep you updated on whether or not Daniel gets a girlfriend through this as this story develops.
In another example of why conspiracy theories aren’t just harmless fun, a man threatened a pizza place with an assault rifle yesterday because of “pizzagate.”
In case you aren’t on Reddit or 4chan or Twitter, according to Know Your Meme, “pizzagate" is an absolutely insane conspiracy theory, “regarding a series of emails hacked from former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s account, which some supporters of Donald Trump claimed were coded messages discussing an underground pedophile ring operated at the Comet Ping Pong Pizza restaurant in Washington, D.C.”
Obviously, using the the powers of reason and critical thinking that still so many people on this planet are either suppressing or just do not have, this theory is bunk. But that wasn’t enough to stop a North Carolina man from “self-investigating” the pedophile ring with an assault rifle. 28-year-old Edgar Maddison Welch discharged the rifle but did not shoot anyone when he enterted Comet Ping Pong Pizza yesterday. Police arrested Welch 45 minutes later and seized a Colt .38 caliber handgun and shotgun. Thankfully, no one was hurt.
According to The Washington Post, “The popular family restaurant, near Connecticut and Nebraska avenues NW in the Chevy Chase neighborhood, was swept up in the onslaught of fake news and conspiracy theories that were prevalent during the presidential campaign. The restaurant, its owner, staff and nearby businesses have been attacked on social media and received death threats.”
Reddit has since banned the “Pizzagate” topic, but it didn’t stop harassment.
That’s the American Dream in 2016, open a small business and gain notoriety through a disgusting conspiracy theory that leads to being threatened by an assault rifle. If anyone needs me, I'll be cowering under my desk in the fetal position until the end of time.
Webster’s dictionary defines hero as a mythological or legendary figure often of divine descent endowed with great strength or ability.
We define hero as someone who punches a kangaroo in the face to save their dog.
Welcome to Australia. The harsh reality of living down under includes worrying that a kangaroo is going steal your dog, and sometimes you have smack a ‘roo to get the dog back. That’s exactly what happens in the video above, which some are calling the most “Austrailian video of all time.”
According to The Daily Telegraph, the footage is of zookeeper Greig Tonkins, who rescued his dog Max from the clutches of a mean old kangaroo by showing the animal what for. This was actually a hunting trip from last June put together for a “sick young man called Kailem who passed away from cancer,” the trip’s organizer Mathew Amor told The Telegraph.
“Basically Kailem wanted to catch a boar,” he said.
The video has been viewed by millions already, but those on the trip had a different interpreation of the event.
“It was funny because the guy who did it is the most placid bloke. We laughed at him for chucking such a sh*t punch.”
Now, that’s the most Australian thing ever.
