So GQ recently did an article showcasing Fall clothing as a backdrop to male climbers in Joshua Tree National Park:




Well, Outdoor Research didn't like how the women in the story were only portrayed as accessories to the climbers, frolicking in tiny bathing suits and adorning the men as stereotypes.





So they took it upon themselves to answer GQ's article, picture-by-picture using bad*ss women climbers:

Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin on "Stranger Things," went on the British talk show "The Jonathan Ross Show," to explain the disability he was born with: cleidocranial dysplasia.

Brave, well-spoken, and phenomenally open for a television broadcast, he is now even more of a treasure to watch and an excellent disability advocate.

You had me at "cookie fries."

If you've been to the Texas State Fair, you've probably eaten some of Isaac Rousso's famous award-winning treats like his funnel cake fries, deep-fried hash browns stuffed with bacon and cheddar cheese, smoky bacon margarita, deep fried Cuban rolls, fried Pop Tarts, and, yes, cookie fries.



Rousso has just won the right to open a restaurant in Plano Wal-Mart next week where he can serve these deep-fried artery-cloggers to Texas' poorest shoppers 365-days a year.

According to Eater Dallas, "The chain is also in talks about a "nation-wide" expansion, which would bring State Fair Treats to Walmart stores across the country depending on how things go in Texas."



Well, as for the cookie fries, they are described as deep-fried cookies that come in flavors like chocolate chip or sprinkles, and are shaped like a French fry and served with strawberry or milk chocolate sauce.

Okay, i'm game for that "nationwide [pants] expansion."



Wal-Mart road trip time.

Lazy Kiwi's can rejoice! Domino's Pizza has chosen Auckland, New Zealand as the first place they are going to test out drone pizza delivery!

The DRU drone, by maker Flirtey looks pretty good for the task, and we're hoping it will carry a heated bag so we don't get our pie's tepid at our door.





Because nothing's worse than limp pizza.

Nothing warms the heart quite like two victims of circumstances beyond their control, finding solace in the companionship of one another.

At 10-months-old Scarlette Tipton lost her left arm to cancer. Her parents desperately wanted little Scarlette, now two-years-old, to have the chance to grow up with a little kitten just like her; and they couldn't have found a better match. Meet Doc: a rescue kitten who had her right paw amputated following a car accident.

On Christmas Eve the two were united at a shelter in California. That very Wednesday, Doc had already been welcomed aboard as the new member of the family.

Scarlett's mother, Simone Tipton, told Love Meow that Scarlette "did notice that Doc had staples on her side and said 'owies'. I let her know that she had owies just like her, and she placed her hand on her side and just nodded. She recognizes that the cat has similar struggles as she does."

This pink hippo's straight up the missing character off 'Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted.' Who would voice that beaut that's highly susceptible to sunburns, and at a disadvantage in the great big bad old predator-filled wild though?

Caters News Agency reports that this brilliant fairytale creature was spotted washing down in Kenya's Masai Mara National Reserve by a couple french tourists.
