A small town in Poland is upset about Winnie the Pooh's genitalia - or lack thereof - and they do not want him exposing himself to their kids.

Council members in Tuszyn were recently discussing potential mascots for their playground when one of them suggested the pants-less cartoon bear. Things just went downhill from there.

Here are some actual quotes from the conversation, according to "Croation Times:"

"It is half naked which is wholly inappropriate for children."

"It doesn't wear underpants because it doesn't have a sex. It's a hermaphrodite."

"This is very disturbing but can you imagine! The author was over 60 and cut his [Pooh's] testicles off with a razor blade because he had a problem with his identity."

Pooh be like:

China is fighting the good fight against nature - doing everything it can to keep Winter at bay.

To help battle the blues, the city of Changchun in China is installing plastic sheeting with pictures of lush, green shrubbery around the edge of the street, hiding all of the real plants which are now brown and bare.

"Many people feel depressed in the winter, and the site of the denuded trees only contributes to that feeling," said a local official. "We want to try and cheer people up a bit by putting some greenery around to make them feel better."

Thousands of meters of the plastic sheeting were rolled out this week, and if they're lucky, plastic flowers may be on the way as well. Seriously.

Just don't bother stopping to smell these roses.

Willow and Jaden Smith, otherworldy offspring of Will and Jada Pinkett, have conducted their first interview together for the "New York Times," and based on Jaden's past tweets, it's exactly what you might expect. A whole lot of WTF.

Or maybe they are on a whole other plane of existence beyond our current understanding, and we just don't "get it."

Some examples:

Q: What are some of the themes that recur in your work?

JADEN: The P.C.H. being one of them; the melancholiness of the ocean; the melancholiness of everything else.

Q: What have you been reading?

WILLOW: Quantum physics. Osho.

Q: So what's next?

JADEN: I have a goal to be just the most craziest person of all time. And when I say craziest, I mean, like, I want to do like Olympic-level things. I want to be the most durable person on the planet.

And so "Time," using actual quotes from the interview, has naturally built a "Jaden and Willow Smith Poetry Generator":

And it's magical. I mean… so melancholy.

Well, here's your new "What Does the Fox Say."

Singer Wang Rong Rollin's video for "Chick, Chick" involves chickens and women dressed up like chickens. And most of the lyrics are just animal sounds.

What more could you ask for in an insane video from China?

"Did not like" is putting it delicately.

Despite initial protests of disapproval from both her family and fans, Lifetime aired its controversial Aaliyah biopic on Saturday night, and it did not sit very well with viewers.

"'Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B' barely scratches the surface of how she changed the course for pop, hip-hop and R&B in the Nineties and why her death at age 22 on August 25, 2001 was such a huge loss for music fans," writes The Rolling Stone.

Aaliyah's family denied the producers rights to use her music in the film, so that alone did not bode well for the film, and Zendaya Coleman, who was initially cast to play Aaliyah dropped out delaying production.

After it aired, the film was instantly the target of ridicule on Twitter, mainly with the hashtag #LifetimeBeLike making fun of the poor casting choices. And the way film portrayed her relationship with R. Kelly was equally upsetting for people to watch.

Aaliyah's former producer, Timbaland, also went full meme on his Instagram account in response to the film. Here are a few examples:







Executive producer Wendy Williams responded to the criticism on her show Monday:

I see my Aaliyah movie broke the Internet this weekend! Errbody got an opinion. Well, I must tell you, whether you loved or hate, you watched. It was the second-highest rated movie on all of cable this year so far.

PETA is launching a new headquarters in Minecraft on Saturday, as a safe haven where players are not allowed to harm animals… or at least their pixelated counterparts.
So for all you creative sickos out there - that means no compact chicken cookers, barbaric egg farms, cow torture chambers or pig slaughterhouses.
From PETA's website:

Visitors to PETA's custom-made digital island will explore vast expanses of landscapes where the animals of Minecraft roam free. They can also visit extensive vegetable and flower gardens, walk through a fantastic re-creation of PETA's HQ, and discover an abandoned and decaying slaughterhouse.

PETA has gone to the aid of video game animals before, including Pokemon, World of Warcraft seals, the Tanooki suit in Mario Bros., and dogs in Call of Duty.

Is "Alex from Target" the new Justin Bieber or Nash Grier?

For reasons which we may never fully understand, the Internet has turned a photo of a boy working at Target into an international meme virtually overnight.

Twitter user @auscalum posted the photo on Sunday, which began trending on Twitter, has already been parodied in various Vines and images, and is even being featured on mainstream media outlets like CNN.

The real Alex now has 300k followers on Twitter as of Monday morning. Because of course he does.

Let's call this one #Urinegate, shall we?

In an on-air segment Saturday, night, NBC meteorologist Mike Seidel was in North Carolina reporting on the snow, but the cameras cut to him a bit too early.

Viewers and NBC anchor Lester Holt were both surprised to see Seidel with his back to the camera, before apparently zipping up his fly.

NBC is claiming that he was just looking for his dropped phone.

So what do you think?

Well after weeks of speculation, the mystery seems to have finally been solved: Kim Jong Un has been spotted. Alive!

And now here he is in a recent photo spread, back at work, touring a creepy orphanage, devoid of any children.

New images of the Great Leader, released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), show him at the Pyongyang Baby Home and Orphanage wandering around inflatable swans while looking confused and happily inspecting a Hello Kitty tea sets, pink bunk beds and ball pits.

Looks like everything is back to normal in North Korea. Now if we can just find those missing children...

Do you ever wonder what Larry King is doing at 2am on a Sunday night/Monday morning?

Answer: Taking the social media world by storm… that's what!

For the second week in a row, the 80-year old radio/tv host has tweeted a series of random thoughts, questions, observations on his feed. He covers everything from fear of colonoscopies and his favorite Chinese food, to pipe smoking, and his hatred of snow.

And no he isn't drunk, nor has his Twitter account been hacked - as he clarifies here in an equally funny Instagram video (see above).

Here are a few examples, but be sure check out his official account:

24-year old Riley Swearingen thought nothing about his drunken joke on a police officer.

According to the criminal complaint, Mankato Department of Public Safety Police Sergeant Adam Gray was talking with a driver of a "drunk bus" in the city's entertainment district when he "felt two fingertips that were obvious to him as wet with saliva being pushed into his right and left ear canals, which caused pressure and discomfort in his ear canals."

The officer turned and saw a man later identified as Swearingen tell his friends, "I just gave the cop a wet Willie."

"Sergeant Gray immediately proceeded after the male who assaulted him," the complaint continues.

Once he was apprehended, Swearingen told Gray he was just joking around and was sorry, but Gray arrested him anyway.

The man being berated is Marty Rathbun, who spent two and a half decades in the church, rising to become a top official there before breaking away in 2004. On his blog, Rathbun writes that the people berating him in the video are three of the current top management personnel named Jenny Linson, Marc Yager, and Dave Bloomberg.

On Sunday evening, Rathbun posted this bizarre 2-minute video, a video he had taken earlier in the day while he was waiting at Los Angeles International Airport to catch a flight back to his home in Texas. Rathbun thinks the entire thing was a set up because Rathbun points out "there was only one carry-on bag for the three of them." The way they spoke was also very calculated and seems pretty clear it was well rehearsed.

According to an Australian news outlet, Dylan Thomas woke up to a bizarre red trail going from his navel to his chest. When the angry red line grew even longer, he consulted a doctor who advised it was simply an insect bite and gave him some anti-histamine cream.

Within hours painful blisters erupted along the red line, sending him back to hospital where a dermatologist determined a tropical spider had burrowed into the 21-year-old's body presumably through a recent appendix scar.

Here is the aftermath:

The last time the Kansas City Royals made the playoffs was in 1985. This year, they not only made the playoffs, but are currently a few wins away from the World Series. As you can imagine, the KC metro area is all abuzz with Royalmania.

To celebrate, a burger joint in town called the Westpoint Flea Market is selling burgers at the prices they were in 1985, which means paying only $2.99 for a $7.99 burger. KCTV news reporter Courtney DeHoff went to the Westpoint Flea Market to sample the offerings, and when she asked for a burger, owner Joe Zwillenberg laid down the worst innuendo possible. Hoo boy...
