If You Have A Heart, These Stories Will Touch It. And Then Melt It.

Animals are the recipient of so much love here on the Internet, usually just for being cute. We often forget that, even though they aren’t spending their work days looking at adorable pictures of us (which would admittedly be weird), they do express love and compassion in their own way.
Sometimes this expression of compassion is even more powerful than anything us humans could produce. Here are some amazing stories of animals with hearts of gold.

1.) Gandalf the owl tried and tried to lay an egg, but when she would it wouldn’t hatch. Her owners gave her a goose egg, and…

This Couple Did Not Expect To Share A Coke With A Spider. Ewwww.

Warning: This story might make you never want to drink Coca Cola again.
A British couple, Amanda Barr and Steve Knight, recently sat down to enjoy a meal and a couple of glasses of the classic cola only to discover something horrific lurking in their bottle of the bubbly beverage: a huge, disgusting spider.
They explained to Metro that this was their first time pouring from this bottle and that they store their glasses upside down, so the creepy crawly definitely didn’t come from their cupboard.

The couple purchased the bottle at their local Iceland supermarket.

This Hamster Makes Himself Adorably Comfy In An iPhone Case.

The newest phone accessory trend in Japan is literally putting your device into sleep mode at night by tucking it into its own cozy little sleeping bag. Kind of weird, but also pretty adorable. It’s especially adorable if you happen to have a cute little critter who takes it upon themselves to curl up inside the perfectly sized comforter.
That’s what happened to Twitter user maimai who uploaded photos of her tiny pet hamster taking the opportunity to make himself comfy inside her case. 

Here he is checking out the digs…

15 Celebrity Yearbook Photos Show How We All Start Somewhere.

It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the dazzle of our favorite celebrities, but believe it or not there as a time when they were all just as dorky as the rest of us! Before starring in their own movies and TV shows, they also had to spend their times in the sometimes scary halls of high school.
Whether they spent their days as cheerleaders or goth punks, these old yearbook photos show how much time can change things. Take a look!

When Residents Of This City Looked Outside One Morning, They Saw Hell On Earth.

The island nation of Madagascar off the coast of Africa, is currently knee deep in an almost biblical plague of locusts. In fact the entire country has had a severe locust problem for the last three years. They’ve wiped out crops, and are threatening the livelihoods of millions of people.
Just check out these photos from the capital city of Antananarivo.

The sky is black with locusts.

Madagascar is located along the locusts’ migration route, which helps explain the issue.

You’ll Be Sick When You See How The Media Twists The Truth Of Our Lives.

As networks and publications try and fill the 24-hour news cycle, it’s hard to tell truth from fiction someone created to have something to talk about for the next half hour to half year. Unfortunately for us, the viewers and readers, that is the media telling untruths in its most harmless form.
As you’ll see below, there might be more sinister motives to the way the media tells a story. If true, this is pretty scary stuff.

Funny how that worked out.

These Dads Are The Best At Being The Worst. LOL. I Love Them.

Without our fathers, we would be nothing. On top of that, we’d be a pile of nothing that has no idea what it looks like when a grown man gets stuck inside a tire swing at a local playground. Dads play a very important role in the lives of their children, whether they’re giving them discipline or just having fun. Either way, it’s memorable.
… but it’s even more memorable when your dad just fails, left and right. It’s just too cute (as long as you’re not Mom).

What These Parents Did With Pictures Of Their Crying Kids Is Beyond Hilarious.

It’s no secret that little kids cry all of the time, but what often seems to be a mystery is why they’re crying. If you don’t know the kid or their family, you’re without a clue. They’ve got food, clothes, and even a cool action figure to play with, what could they possibly be upset about?
Well, wonder no more, thanks to Reasons My Son Is Crying. The blog began when Greg Pembroke was looking to document the reasons why his then three-year-old son was crying, but it has since evolved into a place where all parents can share why…
