If you haven't heard about it by now, a dentist from Minnesota paid $50,000 to illegally kill a beloved and protected lion in Zimbabwe earlier this month.

The whole things seems to have gotten the better of the usually unflappable Jimmy Kimmel.

"It's just vomitous," he said while going on a tirade against the senseless killing of exotic trophy animals.

Kimmel actually grew emotional as he tried to understand the thought process of a big game hunter. It was a very tender moment for the often-cynical talk show host.

Adding to his credit, Kimmel wanted to bring some positive to story by circulating the web address of a conservation organization, and asked viewers to donate.



Way to make something good out of something that has caused a lot of Internet vitriol, Jimmy.

Jessica Cox, an extremely accomplished woman despite being born without arms, was promoting the documentary made about her life when she met a special fan.

According to The Mighty:

During the premiere of the film at EEA AirVenture, an airshow in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, Cox met RE, a very special little girl who also doesn't have arms. The two shared a moving embrace.

RE was also born without arms, and her mother drove six hours to get her daughter there to see Cox, according to another post on the page.

Cox and RE got to spend some personal time together chatting and hanging out. RE even got an autographed poster for Cox's film.



Here's more of the two of them interacting:

Cox has met and overcome many challenges in her life, not the least of which was learning how to fly a plane. The Guinness Book of World Records gave her the award for First Woman to Fly an Airplane with Her Feet.

David Faustino's really trying to make a Married with Children Reboot happen.

David Faustino, or the only one of the Married...With Children cast who has not continued to have a publicly successful career, has begun teasing return of the 1990s show.

During the Vacation premiere, Faustino told E Online:

"Sony has it. They're excited about it. They're working out some legal issues that we hope they work out.

The whole cast, including Christina, is down to do little bits in it. The idea would be a pilot for a spinoff. That's all I can say right now. It involves me and few other people."



Chrisina Applegate, who played the bombshell daughter Kelly said to E Online, "All of us have said we would all be there for [Faustino]."

Jeeez, it all just sounds pandering at this point. It's like Faustino is trying to make 'fetch' happen.



But if it does happen, it would primarily be because our culture continues on its exhaustive crusade to resurrect every particle of what was popular in the 1990s and see if we will still laugh when we try to make the exhumed corpse dance for us.

We've got X Files coming back in January, the Full House reboot and Xena Warrior Princess.

Not to mention the inexplicable return of Coach.

KFC wants you to print your pictures on its new bucket of chicken.

Talk about pic in the bucket! (Sorry.)

For some reason, maybe to get attention like this, KFC Canada has unveiled a bucket of chicken that prints out your cell phone pictures via bluetooth.

You know, that thing you've demanded for decades.

According to the Daily Meal:

The idea is that KFC customers order a bucket of fried chicken, take a photo on their smartphone, and print out a Polaroid photo from the bucket.

It seems that the printer and phone connect via Bluetooth. All you have to do is press the "Snap" button and the Polaroid-like photo prints out.



KFC Canada also released this snazzy video with a group of hip youngsters using the thing.



No one knows why KFC would want to do a thing like the Memory Bucket as it's called. Though KFC Canada is approaching its 60th birthday, so maybe that.



It's just another miracle of modern fast food science, like Pizza Hut's projector box or Pizza Hut's hot dog stuffed pizza.

Come to think of it, Pizza Hut has led the last revolutionary decade of useless technological food goods. We have a new contender!



Deniz Kosan probably believes in the importance of two things.

Coffee and Breaking Bad.

The Turkish fan set up a Kickstarter, got funded and has documented the whole affair over a very well produced Instagram account.

It's called Walter's Coffee and we want to go there immediately.

Lion Hunting Dentist draws everyone's ire.

One of the "most famous lions in Africa", and an ongoing research subject of Oxford University, was hunted and killed illegally by a Minnesotan Dentist in early July and everyone is pissed.

Cecil the lion was the leader of his pride in a Zimbabwean and had been widely publicized to draw attention to the university's studies.

According to The Guardian:

On Tuesday, the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force said the man thought to have paid $50,000 (£32,000) for the chance to kill Cecil was not a Spaniard as originally believed, but US citizen Walter Palmer, from a small town near Minneapolis. The man left the lion skinned and headless on the outskirts of the park, the ZCTF's Johnny Rodrigues said in a statement.

The hunt took place around 6 July. "They went hunting at night with a spotlight and they spotted Cecil," Rodrigues said. "They tied a dead animal to their vehicle to lure Cecil out of the park and they scented an area about half a kilometre from the park."

The 13-year-old lion was wearing a GPS collar as part of an Oxford University research project that had been running since 1999, making it possible to trace his last movements. Rodrigues said the hunters tried to destroy the collar, but failed.



Here's some Oxford University footage of Cecil in his habitat:



Palmer pictured below on the left with another lion he killed, not Cecil, has received wide spread condemnation from just about everyone.



Multiple Facebook groups have been set up to shame the hunter.

And his dentist office's Yelp account is being creatively pummeled.







The reaction spread so big it spilled over into real life, causing Palmer to shut up his office July 28.



Palmer's defense is that he simply did not know. That has done nothing to stop the creation of an online petition calling for justice, which has already been signed by almost 70,000 people.

And it hasn't stopped the swarming of protesters and reporters around Palmer's house.



The Guardian goes on to say that, with the removal of Cecil as the pride's leader, another male lion will move in to dominate the pride and likely kill Cecil's cubs.

So, not the happiest of endings.

Students in an all-boys New Zealand were stricken by the death of their teacher Dawson Tamatea July 26 and offered up a haka as a sign of respect in front of the approaching hearse.

The school's YouTube page credits their students with honoring the teacher.

The entire school performing the Haka during the arrival of Mr. Tamatea in the hearse. This was a very emotional and powerful performance. We are extremely proud of our boys' performance and we know that Mr Tamatea would be too.



The Manawatu Standard provided some context behind the emotive display.

The long-time Palmerston North Boys' High teacher died in his sleep, from what is understood to be natural causes, on Sunday night.

Boys' High rector David Bovey, who described Tamatea as a "top bloke", said he would be sorely missed and had left a hole in the school.

A man with "a lot of mana", Tamatea, 55, spent 30 years as a teacher at Boys' High, Bovey said.

Tamatea started working as a math and physical education teacher at the school in 1986.



A Haka is a traditional war cry dance of the New Zealand Maori people, but it can also be used to recognize achievements or to give respect.
