Having ripped jeans has been a fashion statement of danger and toughness in the past but it has never been more legit until now.

The Kamine Zoo in Hitachi, Japan recently took part in an unusual fundraiser: sell jeans that have been gnawed on by their lions, tigers and bears. Large sheets of denim were wrapped around objects like tires, logs and rubber balls for the animals to chew on. The deliberately torn material was then sewn into what they're calling "Zoo Jeans" and are to be sold at auction to raise money for the animals. No price has been set for the jeans.

It's not uncommon for a poacher or hunter to receive harsh criticism and public shaming, but does it count when the animal in question goes WAY beyond the endangered species list?

North Korea Considers the Release of This Movie to be an "Act of War"

This latest comedy by Seth Rogan and James Franco is stirring up some serious anger from North Korea. Gee, I wonder why? I mean, it's not like North Korea is known for its irrational approach to international diplomacy and extreme hatred for America...

Speaking to the state media agency KCNA, a North Korean foreign ministry spokesperson said that releasing it would be "an act of war" and promised "merciless" retaliation. Commenting on the premise of the film, the spokesperson said that "making and releasing a movie on a plot to hurt our top-level leadership is the most blatant act of terrorism and war and will absolutely not be tolerated."

While the threats may be worrying for the filmmakers, it is certainly giving them a lot of free PR. The threats are also well-timed as the trailer of The Interview was recently released earlier in June.

Thanks for the headsup, Daily Dot!
