There's nothing like an new haircut to put a pep in your step.

But this Australian sheep is probably feeling a little better than with the average haircut. And that's because he is also 90 pounds lighter.

A Canberra sheep named Chris was recently captured by animal welfare workers after getting lost from his herd for more than two years. It seems that during this time he really let himself go.

Chris' fleece was sheered off Thursday by four-time national shearing champion Ian Elkins, and it weighed in at around 90 pounds, easily topping the previous record.

Fleece this large can cause serious health problems, said RSPCA ACT chief executive Tammy Ven Dange.

"It can actually make it impossible for them to go to the bathroom. We don't know how bad the damage could be because this has been building for awhile," she said.

Chris is reportedly in good health, and will likely join a local herd to live out the rest of his (lighter) days.

A barbershop-based event in Dubuque, IA lets kids use literacy as currency.

Barber Courtney Holmes will give free haircuts to children that read to him while in the chair as part of a city promotion to get kids ready for the upcoming school year and to keep them looking spiffy.

The Globe Gazette ran the story from an Associated Press wire report.

"I just want to support kids reading," Holmes said.

St. Mark Youth Enrichment gave away books during the event, some of which were read to Holmes. Outreach coordinator Beth McGorry with St. Mark said she enjoyed watching Holmes help young children sound out the words they didn't know yet.

Caitlin Daniels, grade-level reading coordinator with the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque, also helped struggling readers in the barber chair.

"It's great. All the kids, they want to have a good haircut to go back to school," she said. "They're paying through reading."

The city's acting resource manager, Anderson Sainci, coordinated the event, which involved nonprofits and other community partners.

It’s similar to his previous cut, but longer and much more “trapezoid.”

His eyebrows, which have been shrinking for some time are also new and smaller than ever before.

The photo was taken at a Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) meeting in Pyongyang on Wednesday, and it is now pretty much all over Twitter.

Was his inspiration “Street Fighter’s” Guile, Spongebob’s karate helmet or “The Jersey Shore’s” DJ Pauly D?
