Toddler loves a personal injury lawyer so much he got a birthday party based on the guy.

One special boy got the most boring themed birthday party ever. It was all he wanted.

L'erin Dobra knew her son Grayson loves, loves, loves the Louisiana-based personal injury lawyer Morris Bart. You know the type. The lawyer that makes ubiquitous advertisements with some inane catch phrase in lieu of chasing ambulances.

Bart's is "One call, that's all."

So the thoughtful mother turned Grayson's second birthday into a Morris Bart-themed event.

The Wall Street Journal has more:

Maybe it has to do with the flashing lights and music featured in the spots, but Grayson can't stop watching his ads, said Ms. Dobra, a nurse from Prairieville, La.

"He's always been very drawn to Morris Bart commercials," she told Law Blog. "He used to watch ABC and color videos, and he used to love those. But now he wants to watch Morris Bart commercials." When they're not on TV, he watches them on YouTube.

...The star of the party didn't make an appearance. But after Ms. Dobra emailed his office about her idea, Mr. Bart sent her an autographed photo, Morris Bart key chains and a New Orleans Pelicans shirt displaying his logo on the back. The shirt was size extra-large. "He'll have that for a long time," Ms. Dobra said.

She thought of everything.

There was a Morris Bart cake:

There was a framed picture of the lawyer and even a cardboard cutout!

Of course the kid loved it. Kids love everything. Even personal injury lawyers.

What are we missing here, Grayson?

Do you know that today is Friday?

Of course you do.

Do you know that Mashable remade your favorite 90s sitcom Friends with hamsters?

Well they did.

Don't think too hard about this one. Just sit back and enjoy the countdown to the weekend.

Mashable does this often. They had hamsters throw a tiki party, had them eat tiny burritos and celebrate Valentine's Day.

They probably just found a box of them in an alley a few years ago and are trying to ensure they lead happy lives.

A stranger texting this guy and his beard gets the best responses.

He ain't never been called Wendy before. But surely people compliment his beard.

Edwin Wheeler kept getting texts from a wrong number, so he answered them politely with proof that he was not some lady named Wendy.

Then, he took screenshots and put the pictures on Imgur like a true gentleman.

"Maybe I should just accept my life as the bearded Wendy," he said.

We know the truth though. She kept 'accidentally' texting him just so she could keep getting pics of that sweet, sweet beard.

We would have done the same.

High school girls wear the scarlet letter to protest a dress code.

These high school students gave themselves an 'A', a scarlet one.

Frustrated by the Charleston County School of the Arts' dress code, finding it demeaning and sexist, students decided to take matters into their own hands.

Post and Courier gives the details:

Reese Fischer, a junior creative writing student at the school who helped organize the protest, said she doesn't oppose the dress code. But, based on her experience, faculty members enforce the dress code more strictly against girls than boys, and against heavy-set girls than smaller girls, she said.

"Especially in the summer, you see guys walking around in muscle tank tops with half their sides hanging out and their pants hanging down, and they don't get called out for that," Fischer said. "They don't get called out for wearing a hat, but a girl will get called out for a short skirt in a second."

...School of the Arts' dress code states that "appropriate, decent and non-distracting attire must be worn" and prohibits hats indoors, exposed underwear, bare skin "between upper chest and mid thigh," shoulder straps less than two fingers wide, and clothing that features inflammatory or profane messages. Students who break the dress code can be sent to an administrator's office and told to change into a school-owned T-shirt and sweatpants.

So Fischer put out a call to action on Instagram last week.

Her post read:

Hi! As many of you heard, there's a new dress code policy being enforced as of tomorrow that will require students to leave class and sit in the office until their dress code violation is 'dealt with'. Also, for a teacher to send you to the office they do not have to dictate whether or not you're in dress code, [they just have to] simply question it. Many students find it incredibly offensive that their outfits are being held at a higher importance than their education. ...

Tomorrow, Sept. 24, it would be awesome if we could get as many people as possible to incorporate a red 'A' into their outfits, as the red 'A' is a famous symbol for 'sin.' We'll keep this page updated as frequently as possible so that the movement is cohesive and effective. Thank you for standing up for what's fair (that everyone should be treated with equal respect).

Post and Courier said the protest went very well.

Fischer said that on the first day of the protest last Thursday, about 100 students — as well as some faculty — wore a homemade red A on their clothing, sometimes as part of a slogan, "Not A Distraction." The red letter A is a reference to the Nathaniel Hawthorne novel "The Scarlet Letter," in which 17th-century Puritans force a young woman to wear the letter after finding her guilty of adultery.

A week in, and students are still adding the letter to their clothes.

Way to find a civil way to stand up for yourself and get your point across!

In anticipation of his taking over The Daily Show last month, Trevor Noah and co. hid a bunch of short ad videos in specific Google searches.

Like this:

Here are the ones we found, but there are probably more. It's pretty clever and fun to find them.

17 years later, the ring bearer and the flower girl get married.

Most single people hope to meet someone they'll marry at a wedding when they have to show up stag, but probably not when they're children.

Fate seems to have decided the course of this North Carolina couple for putting them together as a ring bearer and a flower girl, only to see them wind up married 17 years later in the exact same church.

WBTV has the story:

Adrian Franklin can remember the exact moment when he was told he had to be in a wedding with Brooke. He was only five years old but to him it was like yesterday, "I was devastated. I was like 'tell me I don't have to walk down the aisle with her!"

Seventeen years ago, he was the ring bearer and she was the flower girl in the wedding of a family friend. Brooke, who was also five, said she had the biggest crush on Adrian. He knew it and he hated it.

"We went to school together and I would always try to play with him on the playground and he wouldn't have anything to do with it," Brooke said.

"I was always trying to get away from her and run from her and hide from her," Adrian said.

Boy how things change.
