Wait, what? With the skin? Kids these days man.

This is definitely the little champ you wanted on your team in middle school when you were on a field trip, and you had to pick someone for 'the watermelon challenge.' Oh well, when at a cricket match right?

Worried you might subject your kid to unnecessary ridicule by giving them a needlessly unique name, or that their peers may hate them simply because you picked the "Jim Bob" of this generation? Spare them the torment by avoiding these "trashy" names as described by Redditors around the globe in response to the question "What name is considered to be trashy in your country?"

In 2004, Katie Johnson was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor. Her father, Albin Johnson, wanted to build an R2-D2 droid replica painted pink for her favorite color. It was named it R2-KT in her honor.  

Although Katie has passed, the droid continues to be a symbol of hope in dark times for many Star Wars fans appearing at charity events often.  R2-KT and a similar model called QT-KT have made appearances in many Star Wars properties including the Clone Wars animated series and this cameo in LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles:



Now it seems that R2-KT will most likely appear in the newest live action Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens.

Sesame Workshop is taking a step toward wiping away the stigma associated with autism.

A new character, Julia, has been introduced as a part of Sesame Street and Autism: See Amazing in All Children. Julia will live digitally on an app that helps parents and children with autism communicate through story cards.

The movement to bring Julia to life has taken three years, and includes other pieces to the campaign like "The Amazing Song."

"Our goal is to bring forth what all children share in common, not their differences. Children with autism share in the joy of playing and loving and being friends and being part of a group," Dr. Jeanette Betancourt, the senior vice president of community and family engagement at Sesame Workshop, told People magazine.

R/photoshopbattles is arguably one of the best subreddits on Reddit. And this proves it.

After a Redditor uploaded this photo of a very menacing little girl holding an owl, things got out of hand—as they should have.

Did you miss the GOP debate last week? Would you rather watch children reenact it? Well, Funny or Die has you covered.

Who knows where they found these disgustingly adorable children with their little faces acting so expressively perfect, but they really put their tiny hearts into inhabiting the full spirit of the Republican primary debate.

Look at Donald Trump here:



If the kid thing isn't doing it for you, but you still want to experience the debate other than watch it, Patton Oswalt live-tweeted it for you.

If that's still not your thing, just watch Donald Trump dance for a bit.

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.



What a nice story to start the weekend, right?
