If you go to Facebook’s house this Halloween, expect a big treat. The social media giant has released a slew of new reactions in the spirit of Halloween. All your favorites are there: a witch, a ghost, a pumpkin, a Frankenst — oop, a Frankenstein’s monster.

So don’t expect the same old thing when you laugh at your friend’s joke later. This is a whole new haunted house.

  • “Haha” is now a Witch.
  • “Wow” is now a Ghost.
  • “Sad” is now a Frankenstein. “Sad” is now a Frankenstein’s monster.
  • “Angry” is now a pumpkin.

Facebook released reactions last year in lieu of giving the world that “Dislike” button users have been asking for since around 2010.

It’s all very delightfully ghoulish!

Leave it to another Australian to get himself snacked on.

Somehow a teenage boy got bitten by a crocodile and the whole attack was inadvertently caught on camera:



No word on whether his friends with the camera had soaked his swimsuit in cold cuts prior to their dip, but who the heck films underwater and swims with crocodiles?

Fancy some eggs, or wanna slay like Bey for a tenner? Then check out Facebook's new Marketplace, which quickly went from innocently selling baby photoshoots, to a used car (with no brakes), to selling drugs to your Mom.





A quick look locally and we found a real gem:





Other people have found live hedgehogs and snakes...



There's also a snowsuit for your baby, I mean cat, no, I mean baby cat:



...or a passage through time:



Or some lamb:



A yurt for your bird...



...and a creepy AF clown toy:



This is already my favorite place to shop and it's only been open two days.






Todd Orr is one tough mother.

When hiking in the Madison valley in southwest Montana, two Grizzly bears attacked him, biting him all over the head and chest, and leaving him bleeding. He then hiked three miles out to his car, where he drove himself to the hospital.

He maintained his cool the whole time in a way I'm not sure any other human would, so hat's off to Todd Orr!

Read Todd's story in full:

A guy walked into a Subway restaurant and saw a worker using a bug zapper over the food bins to kill some gnats, so he freaked out, took a video, and alerted the health department.

The 55-second video of the incident was made by Justin Clemons at the Subway restaurant, on the way back from golfing with his young son. Clemons is also advertising the licensing of the video on Facebook.

Subway responded after Clemons got over 14,000 views on his Facebook page, which he really enjoyed:




Subway corporate gave the news their official statement for the news too:



They threw out all the food in the store and admonished the clerk, who, as far as we know now, didn't lose his job from all the bug killing.


The jury is out on whether the food bins were closed when the zapping occurred, but the news says the gnats came from spoiled fruit or a drain in the floor, both of which seems kind of gross.

In a super-touching image, a British Mom posted a back-to-school picture of her daughter Emily after losing her to childhood cancer in a super-effective effort to raise awareness of the disease.





She is encouraging everyone on Facebook to "Go Gold for Cancer Awareness" on your profile pic, like this:

You can (pumpkin) spice up your life by chatting directly with a PSL Bot on Facebook Messenger.



Despite attempts, the bot stays kinda boring and clean and pretty stupid, but it was still fun to see what it threw out at me throughout the convo:
