A Catholic church in Germany has decided to allow the parents of Jens Pascal, a nine year old boy who died from a brain tumor, to decorate the tomb with the logo of his favorite football club Borussia Dortmund, thus fulfilling the boy's deathbed wish before he passed away earlier in May. When the church initially denied the request on the grounds that non-Christian elements are not allowed on the gravestone, the story was quickly picked up by the German news media and caused a stir among soccer fans on Facebook, where nearly 150,000 people flocked to the group "The Last Wish of Jens Pascal" and protested the church's denial. Eventually on Monday, the church released a statement saying that a soccer ball and the club's logo will be placed on the ground (though not on the top of the gravestone).

Since its launch back in September, the Facebook page has received more than 124,000 likes and nearly 100 submissions of penis graffiti drawn on Australia's highest-circulating daily newspaper.

This creepy vest hugs you when you get a "like" on Facebook.

Even worse? It was created by a team of stupid smart people at MIT.

A Disney Cruise employee named Nelson has become internet infamous after allegedly stealing a passenger's iPhone and using it to take several photos. Thanks to Apple's Photo Stream feature, the owner of the phone was able to grab Nelson's snaps of himself, his friends and his girlfriend and upload them to her Facebook account.

"This is Nelson," she wrote next to one photo. "Nelson stole my iPhone."

While it hasn't been proven that this man actually took the phone and then foolishly failed to delete the owner's account before using it as his own, things certainly don't look good.

"I have alerted the officials of the Disney Cruiseline and forwarded them the photos. Hopefully I'll get my phone back and maybe some free passes to Disneyland," wrote the alleged theft victim.

Disney has yet to comment on the incident.
