Doubts Over Garfield's Gender Ends Up Igniting Extremely Passionate Twitter War

Internet satirist and podcast host Virgil Texas instigated an outrageous Wikipedia-editing war over Garfield's gender that even ended up evolving into a full-on Washington Post investigation. The warring wasn't exclusive to Wikipedia though, many loyal fans and people that like to argue for the sole sake of stirring the pot, have since stepped forward to offer their opinions on the lasagna-lover's mystery gender.

Government-Shattering Fart Halts Kenyan Regional Assembly For 10 minutes

Now this is our kind of politics. Here's the full BBC News story, but the title pretty much says it all. A regional assembly in Kenya's Homa Bay had to take a 10 minute break due to a particularly awful trouser-cloud someone laid in the chamber. Apparently there was a conversation over blame and an ensuing scramble to find some kind of air freshener, but the debate-stopping fart dissipated enough after a while for business to continue. We've read about farts shutting down job sites, but a fart that halt local government is a new high.

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.

President Obama knows that Donald Trump is probably stressing out over the Aug. 5 first Republican primary debate, so he decided to offer some advice.

Jimmy Fallon's Donald Trump impression might be as weak as his ring finger, but the jokes that spring from this little interaction stand on their own. Plus, half the fun of watching a Jimmy Fallon impression is seeing how far away he can get from the real thing.

This phone preparation covers a great many topics between the sitting president and the man who led the birther cause.

They joked on Chris Christie, Trump got his own Cecil the lion trophy and the whole thing ended with an autotuned duet of OMI's Cheerleader.



Trump's probably had a busy enough week, what with answering all those phone calls after his cell number went public.

That surely won't stop the fireworks from blowing up in tomorrow's debate as the top 10 polled contenders for the Republican party nomination spar for a chance to say anything slightly meaningful in the most presidential way possible.

A few days ago, the GOP-led House passed a military budget with a hefty $642 billion price tag -- $8 billion more than what President Obama and the Pentagon had agreed on with Congress. With the defense budget skyrocketing, cuts are coming from other programs, most notably government-subsidized food stamps.

Chat Allen, a mother of three who works only part-time, offered this insight:

They have so much money that maybe they can tighten their belts and not live as luxuriously as they live. They've earned it, but there are people who are hungry and who dig in the trash every day just to get something to eat.

This certainly isn't polishing the GOP's image. The budget has been met with less-than-enthusiastic responses in the Democrat-led Senate, which likely will try to reallocate those funds back to public works.
