the internets

A major corporation runs a campaign to let people on the internet be a little creative with their brand and said campaign fails spectacularly because people are awful. Sound familiar? It's a tale as old as time. Or at least as old as Wifi. This time the social media screw up is burger themed, YUM!

This woman posted a photo gallery of her story on Imgur which led to a diagnosis of a genetic disease that affects connective tissues called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS). She explains the backstory in the description of the follow up picture post:

Five months ago, I posted "The Story Of A Broken Dancer." In this post, I told the story of how all I've ever wanted was to be a professional dancer, but that countless injuries and unexplained medical issues were coming in between me and my dream. Well, after posting this, hundreds of Imgurians commented on the post and messaged me saying I should look at different conditions or diseases they thought I had, but one that I received overwhelmingly was "Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS), Hyper Mobility Type III." I looked into it and decided it was worth a shot to get the testing done, and as of this morning, I have been officially confirmed to have EDS.

According to sources all over the internet, comedian Jon Lovitz got engaged to 27-year-old Jessica Lowndes over the Easter weekend. If you're not a fan of the TV show '90210', or moderately successful pop music then you might be asking... who? 

If you saw the story you might have Googled her to find out after the serious love affair went viral. So then apparently the act, and this bizarre, pop-up video style music video were all worth it: 



She's admitted the "early April Fools" joke on her Instagram so it looks like their "relationship" is over. Sorry, Jon Lovitz, time to go back to lurking in the shadows.

This woman went to work as a server and had President George W. Bush and his wife as customers.  Apparently, they were pretty nice and left a "hella" tip. When she shared the picture they took together she referenced the conspiracy theory that "Bush did 9/11" as a joke.   

At first it was funny, but she got more attention than she planned on getting. 




The Tweet also got a lot of hate. Eventually it became necessary to let people know that she wasn't serious. 


Come on, Internet, can't you guys take a joke?

Someone has already capitalized on the new publicity by making visitbogata.com to explain everything the place has to offer. Interestingly enough, in addition to being super chill, Bogata is a place where industrial hemp is grown so they couldn't have had a better accidental celebrity endorsement. 

As for the people who actually live there, they don't really care. According to the Balkan Insight, one villager just seemed a little confused about the situation:

I don’t know how this singer – whoever is he – could make such a mistake. Bogota is one thing, Bogata something different Ioan, a 61-year-old villager said, according to a report in Pressone.ro magazine.

For whatever reason, the internet has just caught onto the fact that the fat child who ate an entire cake on Matilda hit puberty and came out the other end as a pretty good looking dude.  You may not have been aware, but someone made the cast of Matilda get together and reenact favorite fan moments at a reunion for a bonus feature in a 2013 edition of the movie. 

For those of you who have just discovered a new celebrity crush, here's the scene with him all grown up:
