When my daughter was little, I had a mirror leaning against the wall for her to look in. For a while, she thought she had a playmate and would interact with this "other" baby. She would laugh with it and sometimes even kiss it. It was adorable. So I had to chuckle when I saw this video. This little guy probably hasn't had a mirror at his height before. From what I can gather, he thinks this standalone department store mirror is a window and that if he could just get around it, he could play with his new friend. Read the rest
Did you know a baby peacock is called a peachick? I didn't until I started writing this post up. I'm not even sure I had ever even seen a baby peacock, er peachick, before in my life. This peachick's name is Drew and he was rescued by the folks at Hairy Farmpit Girls in White Oak, Georgia. Last week, they captured him strutting around with his new big-bird feathers for the first time and it's really, really cute.
"Drew was thrown in a garbage can out in Douglas, Georgia," Jennifer Evitts, owner of Hairy Farmpit Girls... "Someone saw what happened, grabbed him and then reached out to us to see if we would take him as she didn't know what to do with him."
...In addition to providing a safe haven for abused or neglected animals, the farm sells a range of goat milk-based products, from soap to lotion to lip balm, to support their cause.
Meet the internet sensation, Drew Peacock, today at the Peach Stand of St. Simons! He will be with us all day, puffing and vibrating for his fans! Photo credit, @lollybayphotography

One six-year-old kid, one thousand dollars, one day to spend it.
The guys at Yes Theory gave Huck a cool grand in cash to spend on anything he wanted. Inspired by a scene in Home Alone, he starts with renting a limo. Then it's eating pizza in the limo and then it's taking the limo to the toy store. By the end of (what is a surprisingly heartwarming) video, he's got a bag full of candy and empty pockets (see what he did with the remainder of his cash).

A room full of young children got the opportunity to ask former Oasis lead singer Liam Gallagher nearly anything they wanted.
They quizzed him with questions like, "What's your favorite Disney movie?" (Finding Nemo) and "What instruments do you play?"(none).
When one boy called him "naughty," Liam wasted no time bringing up his estranged brother Noel, calling him "naughty."
It just got more beautifully awkward from there when one rosy-cheeked boy asked the hard-hitting question on everyone's mind, "What's your favorite fart?" (loud ones). Gallagher's sage advice for the young'uns: "If you wanna be a rock star, look out the window, stare at the clouds and do loud farts."
Gallagher is currently on a worldwide tour for his hit solo album, As You Were.
