In another twist and turn of the #DeflatgeGate saga, Tom Brady's 4-game suspension has been lifted by a court.

Judge Richard M. Berman nullified the NFL's suspension in a 40-page decision, which basically stated that the league didn't do anything right in investigating accusations the New England Patriots deflated footballs during the Super Bowl.

Deadspin summed up the decision in these three points:

The NFL is expected to appeal, which could reinstate Brady's suspension. But the Internet still had a lot of feeling about today's decision...

Even Snoop Dogg got in on the action, criticizing the suspension reversal on Instagram.

That's one way to deal with having your license suspended.

Texas State student Tara Monroe is turning heads and catching the attention of the Internet after deciding to use a very unusual mode of transportation on campus—a hot pink and purple Barbie Jeep.

Monroe's license was suspended after refusing a breathalyzer test while leaving a Waka Flocka concert, she told MySA.com.

The industrial engineering junior decided to purchase the Barbie Jeep on Craigslist for $60, and she named it after the little girl she bought the jeep from—Charlene.

Since Monroe started going around town with Charlene, the college student has become sort of a minor celebrity. Other students post pictures of her on Snapchat and Twitter quite regularly.

"This is the best way I could have gotten my 15 minutes of fame," she said. "Basically, it was the best decision I've made in college, yet…"

Fox News host Harris Faulkner has a rodent problem. And she wants $5 million because of it.

In a lawsuit filed Monday in U.S. District Court in New Jersey, Faulkner is suing Hasbro because she says a "Little Toy Shop" hamster shares her name and likeness. The toy is also deemed a choking hazard, the suit says, which causes Faulkner distress for being associated with "harming small children."

She calls out "complexion, the shape of its eyes, and the design of its eye makeup" as evidence that the company stole her identity.

To be fair, the hamster does share the same name. But as far as looks go, you can decided that for yourself.

If you want to own your own little piece of Fox News history, Ebay has an original Harris Faulkner for $40.52.

You shouldn't rob anyone, but you definitely shouldn't rob someone who is a professional MMA fighter.

MMA strawweight Monique Bastos was on her way to the gym when two men attempted to steal her cell phone. Little did they know, she could very easily defend herself.

The entire encounter was posted to Reddit, and user 1Ender provided a rough translation of the man being held in a "triangle" by Bastos.

So just remember would-be robbers, tread lightly. You may just get ahold of someone like Bastos.

And here's reason number 195708 to never trust anything on the Internet.

A woman by the name of Natalie Amyot fooled a lot of people this week by uploading a video claiming that she was looking for the father of her unborn child. As it turns out, this was all a horrible viral marketing stunt.

The story goes that Amyot met a man on vacation in Australia's Sunny Coast, fell in love with him and lost contact when she went back to France.

Now, six weeks later she is back in Australia looking for her lost love/baby daddy.

She even set up a Facebook account for people to reach out with information about the mystery man.

But a new video posted Tuesday revealed the entire story to be a hoax. A man joins her on screen and spills the beans.

"This has been a viral video for Holiday Mooloolaba. My name is Andy Sellar and I own a company called Sunny Coast social media," he says to the camera.

So, there you have it. Everything is marketing. And the Internet is a horrible place.

When he found out a wedding shoot and the Philly Naked Bike Ride were happening on the same weekend, photographer Joe Gidjunis had a brilliant idea—why not combine them?

Couple Blair Delson and Ross Cohen agreed to the idea, and they got these amazing wedding photos.

"They were a little hesitant at first, but not opposed to the idea," Joe told the Huffington Post . "By the time the wedding day came, they became more open to it happening, but they also didn't want to go looking for the bikers. If it happened, it happened."

Oh, it happened all right.

In case some of the bikers didn't want their privates being shown to the entire world, the photographer decided to darken some of the more sensitive regions.

"All of this was hysterical," Joe said. "And it took place in less than three minutes."

Cringe of the Day: Bill Cosby 'Rapeseed' Portrait Banned From State Fair

The Minnesota State Fair just doesn't get fine art.

This portrait of Bill Cosby caused quite a stir at the fair before it was taken down after being up for only a day.

The portrait, made form "rapeseed" or canola seed, was created by Nick Rondo, a 37-year-old software engineer. He wasn't surprised people complained.

"The point was just to see, would there be outrage? Would there be people talking about it? Would it even get through?" he told Pioneer Press.

Although the portrait was originally allowed into the fair, an official made Rondo cover up the word "rapeseed" on his work, which basically defeats any type of message the artist was trying to make.

Despite the removal of the portrait, Rondo said this was for the best.

"I think it's actually maybe the best possible scenario," he said. "Up for a day and then taken down."

Get ready for a kick right in the feels.

Jeremiah Succar, a 7-year-old patient at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, has stage-four atypical rhabdoid teratoid, an aggressive tumor that occurs in the brain and spinal cord.

He loves Rachel Platten's 'Fight Song,' and sings it when he goes through treatments. When his parents found out about this, they knew they had to get the singer to come visit him.

"Jeremiah loves "Fight Song"—he memorized the lyrics after three or four times of listening to it," says Jerry Succar, Jeremiah's father. "He used to sing it when he got a lot of headaches, but now he sings it in the morning, before bed and during shots he has to get."

His parents sprung into action on Instagram using the hashtag #RachelMeetJeremiah.

Rachel got word of the movement, paid Jeremiah a visit and recorded these beautiful videos. Way to go, Rachel!
