Oh Internet, how we loathe you sometimes.

Millions were disappointed after gullibly falling for an fake story indicating that "Harambe McHarambeface" won the naming contest for a baby gorilla at a Chinese zoo.

It all started when the crap-tacular Daily Mirror--who never checks the legitimacy of their sources--decided to pick up the story. The "source" was the fictitional "Boston Leader" news website, and the internet ran with it from there:






The truth quickly came out and hearts were broken everywhere...





...and though we might not have a Harambe McHarambeface YET, you can still show your support and buy your "McHarambeface" t-shirt here:







Pretty sure the teacher will give you an extension after they see how far down the drone sank.

The 32-year-old from Adelaide driver had also made a clusterf**k of other illegal alterations to his car, because of course he had.Hopefully at least one more South Australian driver knows better than to get saucy with their car repairs, otherwise they'll get burned by the Police.



At least the tribute on the pan-wheel is heartfelt, and spelled correctly. The judge might count that for something, right?

There's also this beauty that I'd love to ride:

Microsoft tries too hard--yet again--in their new Surface Pro 4 ad geared ENTIRELY toward Hipster Millennials. The singing narrator wears a fedora and points out all the ways a Hipster Surface user can be productive. Mostly yawn-inducing, the one highlight is the inexplicably NIGHTMARE-INDUCING "hat for your cat" visual near the beginning:



We don't know what the hell you were thinking, Microsoft, but we want to see MORE of nightmare cat.

In a pretty-much universally offensive Photoshop FAIL, Vogue Brazil decided to superimpose disabilities on their own able-bodied models in a promotion for the Paralymics instead of using ACTUAL Paralympians.



The Paralympians were okay with it...



...but we're still not. We'd rather see more barrier-breaking pics of these AMAZING athletes:

In what seems like a WIN, but--as always with Uber--is really a FAIL for humans, Uber has teamed up with financial firm Betterment to offer fee-free retirement accounts to drivers in Seattle, Boston, Chicago, and New Jersey, with options to expand to other cities soon.





Drivers can access the retirement plan from their phones, but Uber won't make any contributions to the accounts, making this "benefit" fall flat.

The accounts are free for only the first year, with fees afterwards calculated at Betterment's regular price, which they say is less than the fees typically charged by traditional financial advisers, but definitely not free. With driver's already hurting for fares...



...we all know Uber, who often works against their workers through "union busting" politics, can do better.
