A group of fishermen were adorably surprised after a hungry sea lion jumped on the back of their boat and demanded some snacks. The men were out at sea off the coast of California, and happily obliged to the sea lion’s requests. 

“Sea Lion hanging out on the back of our boat being fed the finest of fish, and what a friendly little pal he was. Not sure what the bump on his head is though,” the video uploader Peter Ladey wrote in the YouTube description.

Man who farts with hands takes crown on Finnish talent show

Don’t let anyone tell you your talent isn’t a talent.

Consider Antton Puonti, for example, who took home the first-place trophy on Talent Suomi (basically the Finnish version of America’s Got Talent). While televised talent shows often suffer from a deluge of vaguely folksy singers, Puonti emerged as a different kind of musical star: one who makes fart noises with his hands.

Watch him take on John Lennon’s “Merry Xmas (War is Over).” The high note is simply divine.

Cats don’t know how adorable they are. Or maybe they do, because this one can’t get enough of its own reflection. 

According to this video description, this orange cat loaf makes a daily routine of propping itself onto its owner’s bureau and scratching the mirror.

Is it boxing? Is it dancing? Is it playing patty cake? It doesn’t matter — this cat’s doing a great no matter what.

Dash cam captures intense video of attempted car jacking

Https%3a%2f%2fblueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com%2fuploads%2fstory%2fthumbnail%2f30256%2ff3e9ad4fca5848578462b6dd3a9a7c45

A quick-thinking driver in Albuquerque, New Mexico, managed to avoid a car jacking attempt, and it was all captured on his dash cam. 

The unnamed driver posted the clip on YouTube and explains that he was accompanying a friend to a store at about 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday. As soon as the driver exits the parking lot, he is immediately followed by a maroon Chrysler 300. It doesn’t take long before the Chrysler cuts off the dash cam owner, blocking him in at a stop sign.

The driver quickly reverses to avoid a confrontation, and the two cars play cat and mouse as the driver calls 911. 

“Who the fuck is that?” the driver can be heard saying on the video. Read more…

Damn, you guys gotta get a look at this turtle.

Two people from New Zealand were on a boat and they filmed the shelled creature and, wow, this thing is big, you won’t believe it.

I mean, hell yeah at the size of this thing. Throw some wheels on this guy and you’ve got a Toyota Camry, you know what I mean? You could eat a Thanksgiving dinner with your whole family on the back of this guy.

Pippa Partington and her husband Craig spotted the turtle (a leatherback sea turtle, to be exact) off the coast of Mangawhai on December 6.

Dang.  Read more…

Angry goat goes on rampage at local store, terrorises shoppers

LONDON — You don’t want to get on the wrong side of an angry goat. Just don’t do it.

The quiet town of Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland recently found this out first-hand when a runaway billy goat stormed the carpark of a local store. 

“I was on my own in the store at around 6:20am and thought it was the bread man knocking,” manager Jonathan Smyth told the Carrick Times.

“I looked up and there was a massive goat two foot up the door.”

Smyth captured the goat’s blatant attempt at intimidation on his phone.

Fortunately the enraged beast didn’t manage to gain access to the store, but Smyth recounted how it charged one of his customers and forced a member of staff to take shelter in a car. Read more…

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ lyrics applied literally are a real crime thriller

Https%3a%2f%2fblueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com%2fuploads%2fstory%2fthumbnail%2f30162%2ff94287f137c648bebcbe457e6c765ef0

Queen’s 1975 classic is quite the operatic odyssey, and as many people know, it’s the perfect song to lose your voice to after a few drinks at karaoke.

But it turns out that “Bohemian Rhapsody” makes for a mean plot for a short film too — an idea that’s now a reality courtesy of YouTube channel Corridor

What has long been thought of as a song which relates to frontman Freddie Mercury’s personal troubles has been twisted into a stylistic, neo-noir police standoff, with dialogue that only uses the song’s lyrics. 

It’s a bit of real life, it’s a bit of fantasy. Whole lot of Galileo Figero.  Read more…

Gang of dogs in Russia steal woman’s groceries

Some dog’s don’t deserve the title of man’s best friend.

The dogs that roam the streets of Moscow are known to be pretty intuitive; some of them have even been seen navigating the city’s complex subway system. But when it’s time for some grub, these dogs also know a quick way to score a bite to eat.

A group of three dogs were recently spotted ganging up on a poor woman exiting a grocery store. After a few moments of the dogs jumping on her, she finally gave in and handed the big one a loaf of bread. 

It’s unclear if the woman previously made the mistake of feeding these dogs or if they just run a food-stealing ring that operates out of the grocery store. Read more…

Renegade squirrel steals 150 Christmas lights

This is the story of how a squirrel stole Christmas. 

Margaret Rican and her Seattle home has been targeted by a thieving squirrel that she has dubbed the “Bulb Bandit.” In a series of YouTube videos, Rican documented the pesky rodent taking colorful bulbs out of a string of lights wraaped around her home’s deck.

“He has stolen 150 in 24 hours, carefully and precisely chewing through the wires to steal the bulb and bury them around the neighborhood,” Rican explains on YouTube. 

While it’s humorous to think that there’s a Christmas-hating squirrel roaming the streets of Seattle, the story takes a sudden depressing turn when you realize this poor squirrel probably thinks the bulbs are actually food.  Read more…

Scotsman is just a wee bit excited to finally find some Irn-Bru in Australia

Https%3a%2f%2fblueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com%2fuploads%2fstory%2fthumbnail%2f30018%2fscreen_shot_2016-12-06_at_3.03.50_pm

It can be a real pain to find Scotland’s finest non-alcoholic beverage export, Irn-Bru, in Australia. Or anywhere outside of the U.K. for that matter.

So this video by a YouTuber only known as Shoot2Thrill has summed up many a Scotsman’s reaction upon finding the drink somewhere else across the globe. 

Warning: Excitable course language ahead.

“I don’t think I’ve been this happy my whole entire life. I’m actually getting emotional about it,” he said. 

“I just went to the supermarket and I FOUND F*CKING IRN-BRU. OHHHHH. GET IN MY F*CKING BELLY.”

In case you hadn’t figured out, Irn-Bru is essentially the lifeblood of Scotland, long tussling with Coca-Cola as the most popular soft drink around. Read more…
