A London-based business has named an amphibian with limited eyesight and a capability to burrow its head underground as Dermophis donaldtrumpi. The namesake shares several characteristics such as its ability to see "the world in black and white" with the US president, according to the company EnviroBuild. You can only imagine how the people of twitter reacted.
The internet really seems to love roasting wanted criminals for their physical attributes (remember Neck Guy?) and this kid is of no exception. The 18-year-old cross-eyed burglar got roasted pretty hard when the Northamptonshire Police department in the UK posted his wanted notice on Facebook.
We almost feel kind of bad for this poor kid, as he can't exactly help that he's cross-eyed, but at the same time, these puns are just too much. They'll definitely make you say, "iris I thought of that one."
You've probably seen at least a few of the pictures of exotic locales with some of the craziest, and sometimes dangerous jellyfish in the world. But this monstrous specimen was found in the English Channel of all places, off of the coast of Cornwall. Better still, the jellyfish appeared out of the murk on the last day of Wild Ocean Week, which was a day to promote local fish species and understanding of the species living all around them, as well as to raise money for the Marine Conservation Society.
If you aren't familiar with these cats, here's what you need to know: Larry is the Mouser in Chief at the Prime Minister's residence in the U.K. and Palmerston is the Foreign Office cat that lives next door. The two don't seem to like each other very much and British news outlets can't help but cover all of their cat-on-cat drama.
Larry and Palmerston had their worst fight yet the other night and the MiC had to make a visit to the vet. Hopefully they'll be able to settle their political differences soon, before they both get hurt.

If you aren't familiar with the historic Brexit vote that's about to take place, here's the gist: British voters will soon decide if they want the United Kingdom to remain in or leave the European Union. It's kind of a big deal, but who cares what humans think, right? The cats have spoken and they are very much against "the British exit".
Straight up, this is a bit of a buzzkill Disney.
UK alcohol awareness groups threw up a collective nope to this 'Frozen' inspired product line, with concern these bottles would encourage underage drinking.
Wouldn't that make more sense if the bottles had booze in them to begin with? These groups are grasping at straws here, and a strategic subsequent move here on the part of any alcohol distributor would be to make haste, and implement an actual 'Frozen' inspired line of champagne.
We're not sure whether Jon Snow planned and practiced for this performance, or 'didna wanna do it.' There's no arguing over the fact this old lad would be the coolest grandpa at the next Christmas party.
