Genius and/or mad man Paul Stenson, owner of The White Moose Cafe in Dublin, just started a fight with Vegans on Facebook. And he's winning.

Stenson posted an obvious joke about vegans with their picky dietary requirements on his restaurant's Facebook page.

Vegans pushed back. But he pushed back HARD.

Here's how it all went down. Prepare for butthurt in 3..2..1...

There is still hope for all of us.

Notable Facebook enemies Asif and Mudasir are once again friends, according to a post that comes exactly one month after their epic breakup.

Here's the original post that announced the split. For some reason (probably the flashy graphics and hilarious nature of grown men having a Facebook squabble) the post went viral.

Mudasir confirms their friendship is whole again.

You see—Now Mudasir, Asif AND Salman are all three best friends.

We can sleep tonight. Don't be proudly.

Viral News of the Day: High School Girl Starts Anti-Bullying Movement After Assault With Super Glue

A case of bullying at a Texas high school looks like it is going to have a happy ending.

High school freshman Hannah Combs had super glue poured onto her hair and scalp last month during class by another student. She said the glue immediately started burning her, and chunks of hair started falling out.

She received first degree chemical burns from the assault.

But what really upset the family, and started a social media frenzy, was that the boy who did this only received three days of in-school suspension.

So Hannah's parents started a Facebook group called Justice For Hannah that has grown to over 25,000 members.

Messages of hope have come pouring in as Hannah's parents continue to advocate for harsher punishment against the bully. They told KCEN hat they want the boy to move schools.

Meanwhile, Hannah has a rad new undercut and a positive outlook on her future.

"I'm old enough to help people that are being bullied and even help the bully themselves become better people," she wrote on Facebook. "Did you know that half of the time the bully doesn't even know he/she is bullying anyone? But we can fix that, I know we can."

Couple doesn't crop their photo enough in a Facebook engagement announcement.

Crop your photos, people.

This couple thought they were letting people into their personal lives by announcing their engagement over Facebook.

But there was more to the photo than initially met the eye and their family was quick on the uptake.

Break found the slip up:

After bride-to-be Miranda announced that her man had finally popped the question, it seemed that their world could be nothing short of a fairy tale. I mean, everyone woman lives to announce their engagement on facebook it seems. Hilariously enough, that magical moment didn't really seem to be the case because Miranda had already accidentally tipped off her friends to look a little closer at the photo. She stated that her boyfriend didn't give her an actual ring, assuring everyone it will come later, which did nothing other than make people lean in a little too close to check out that ring.

And that's when everyone also started noticing the weird box in the corner.

Yeah, that box? It was a pregnancy test.

The scene played out over Facebook comments and you can easily imagine the happy bride-to-be put the pieces together.

And then, the admission.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Mark Zuckerberg unveils reactions as a thing instead of a dislike button.

We wish we could dislike this story on Facebook.

Turns out we were right to be suspicious when we told you Mark Zuckerberg hinted at a 'dislike' button for Facebook last month.

Instead, Facebook revealed to TechCrunch Oct. 8, that the social network planned to 'supercharge' the existing 'Like' button by giving users some extra options on how to react.

Today, Facebook is taking the wraps off what form the new Like may take. It is rolling out "Reactions," a new set of six emoji that will sit alongside the original thumbs-up to let users quickly respond with love, laughter, happiness, shock, sadness and anger.

Facebook tells us that the pop-up feature will first start out as a test in two markets only, Spain and Ireland, before it decides whether to tweak it and/or how to roll it out further.

...The new set of reactions will appear across both mobile and desktop versions of the app and on all posts in the News Feed — be they from friends, Pages/accounts you follow, or advertisers. ...The reactions will work simply enough. On mobile, the emoji will come up when you touch the like button on your screen; on desktop they will come up as you hover the mouse over the like or click on it.

TechCrunch shows it as such:

Facebook Chief Product Officer Chris Cox even put up a video of what these Reactions will look like.

Today we're launching a pilot test of Reactions — a more expressive Like button. As you can see, it's not a "dislike" button, though we hope it addresses the spirit of this request more broadly. We studied which comments and reactions are most commonly and universally expressed across Facebook, then worked to design an experience around them that was elegant and fun. Starting today Ireland and Spain can start loving, wow-ing, or expressing sympathy to posts on Facebook by hovering or long-pressing the Like button wherever they see it. We'll use the feedback from this to improve the feature and hope to roll it out to everyone soon.

After a coworker posts a racist picture of Cayden Jace, his mother and grandmother start #HisNameIsCayden to fight back.

Twitter won't take your racism lying down.

It proved as much Oct. 6 after a selfie of a white man with a three-year-old black child, and its very racist comments, went around Facebook.

According to The Huffington Post:

Cayden was at his mother's workplace in Atlanta when a coworker, identified by Atlanta Black Star as Gerod Roth but who uses the online alias of Geris Hilton, snapped an image of himself with the child in the background.

Roth posted the image on Facebook last month, and the comments quickly showed the Internet at its absolute worst. Roth's friends posted racist jokes and hateful commentary, including references to slavery.

"He was feral," Roth wrote in what appears to be his only comment.

Other comments included "I didn't know you were a slave owner", "But massah, I dindu nuffin" and "Send him back dude, those f*ckers are expensive...Like 25 cents a day".

Cayden's mother and grandmother were appalled to see the post from a coworker and wanted to humanize the boy they love. So they started #HisNameIsCayden and Twitter ran with it:

Roth's employer was not happy when they discovered the post:

This morning I was disgusted to learn that one of my former employees made several racially charged comments on his...
