‘Birdie’ Surrogate Goes Viral At Bernie Sanders’ Rally

The political season this year in the States has been one big super non-ending dose of ‘Reality TV.’ Nobody could have scripted what Americans and the world at large has laid witness to over the course of the last six months — and there doesn't seem to be any end in sight. From Trump’s ‘the Emperor’s wearing no clothes' raucous sideshow act to establishment stalwarts like a a Bush family member being kicked to curb, viewers and voters would have to attest to the unique entertainment value in this political field.

Man Charged With Assault With An Alligator

Even in Florida you can be darn sure that Wendy's won't be serving alligator burgers any time soon. Not after the incident back in October when Joshua James, 23, allegedly shoved a three and a half foot juvenile alligator through the drive-thru window. It was not until last month that U.S. Marshals finally took him into custody.

Tilikum, Symbol Of Sea World’s Whale Mistreatment, Nearing An End

As SeaWorld finally phases out Orcas whales as an attraction, animal advocacy groups and animal lovers at large are pleased to finally witness the impending end of whales bred in captivity. This means that the captive killer whales currently held at SeaWorld parks will be the last of their kind. The news comes after decades of bad publicity and a decline in visitor numbers, which came to a head after two trainers were killed by SeaWorld Orcas.

When Pigs Started Flying

The phrase "when pigs fly" has been in use for centuries to describe the ultimate impossibility. Naturally that was long before man learned that it was possible for him to fly. In the early days of aviation J.T.C. Moore-Brabazon took his Voisin aeroplane aloft with a mad glint of humor in his eye. That and a pig in a wicker basket strapped to one of the struts.

Dindim The Penguin Knows There’s No Place Like Home

Like his fictional counterpart Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, “Dindim the Penguin” seems be of the inclination “there’s no place like home.” Except the hometown in this case is not Kansas. In fact, it’s not even in North America. No, this Magellanic Bird returns home annually to visit an old friend who resides in the southern hemisphere on Proveta Beach in Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil.

Suit-Wearing Horse Is Dressed To Impress

A horse sporting a custom-made Harris Tweed three-piece suit (with matching tweed cap) impressed thousands of fashionable horse-racing fans at the 2016 Cheltenham Festival.

A Tweet From A Twit Doesn’t Compare To A Tweet From A Tit

There’s now scientific evidence a tweet from a Japanese great tit might make more sense than those created by humans. Twitter’s microblogging platform gave added new meaning to our lexicon for the word ‘tweet,’ when it debuted almost a decade ago.

Making Whalers Extinct Versus The Whales?

The tides are turning literally and figuratively in bringing the heinous act of whale hunting to an end. Conservationists are hopeful that their successful efforts in shuttering one commercial whaling shop in Iceland might be the first beacon of hope that their efforts will go world-wide, and that the final chapter of whale hunting might be in our foreseeable future.

Unicorn On The Run

On Wednesday the California Highway Patrol was faced with a challenge of the sort you would never see on an old episode of CHiPs. That is because Jon and Ponch were never sent on a quest to capture a wayward unicorn. With truth being stranger than fiction the real officers found themselves led on a three-hour chase to capture the runaway creature.

Will Political Caucuses Go By The Way Of The Dodo Bird?

Now, that we’re into the thick of the political race for the presidency in the United States, political caucuses have come under scrutiny as to their legitimacy in the 21st Century? After all, they really don’t have a particularly good track record in their ability to select winners. Rick Santorum in 2012 and Mike Huckabee in 2008 couldn't garner more than a temporary uptick out of their wins in Iowa.
