This Photobombing Bird Wants to Be a Fighter Jet So Bad

An amateur photographer snapped this epic image

A seagull photobombed an image of Red Arrows, Royal Air Force planes that do acrobatics displays, at the Llandudno Air Show in North Wales.

The bird is so perfectly aligned with the planes that it looks like it is powered by its own engine in this picture taken Saturday by Jade Coxon, an 18-year-old photography student at the University of Chester.

“It was mainly luck,” she told The Telegraph.

Seagulls have a history of photobombing horse races, family photos and traffic cameras. One even refused to fly away until its photo was taken, as one National Geographic photographer discovered.

Here Are 3 Baby Goats Wearing Sweaters

You're welcome

The only thing cuter than a video of newborn goat triplets is a video of newborn goat triplets wearing sweaters.

The Nigerian dwarf goat triplets hail from Denmans Critters Farm in Obion County, Tenn., the most northwest corner of the state. Two are female, and the male is the one wearing a blue, yellow and brown sweater in this clip.

The same YouTube channel went viral a few months ago for dressing up a Nigerian dwarf goat named Peppa Lass as Queen Elsa of Arendelle from the hit Disney movie Frozen.

Vogue Brasil

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian pulls off a Marilyn Monroe-inspired look on the June 2015 cover of Vogue Brasil. On Instagram, the magazine also posted topless photos of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, who is married to rapper Kanye West.

She turned heads when she first debuted the platinum blonde look at Paris Fashion Week earlier this year. The new do was a “last-minute decision,” she told People Style Watch in March. “I’ve always had this image of Madonna with platinum hair in my references folder on my computer and I’ve been waiting a long time to try the look.”

The Hilarious Jeopardy! Answer That Everyone Is Talking About

"It was either that or the Book of Mormon," the contestant later said

A contestant on Jeopardy! cracked up viewers nationwide Monday by guessing “What is Kinky Boots?” as an answer to a Final Jeopardy! question, “A Christian hymn & a Jewish holiday hymn are both titled this, also the name of a 2009 Tony-nominated musical.” Host Alex Trebek, however, was looking for the answer “Rock of Ages.”

In an interview online with contestants after the episode aired, viral sensation Choyon Manjrekar of Providence, R.I., explained, “Musicals aren’t exactly my forte…That’s the first thing that came to mind…It was either that or the Book of Mormon, but I guess that wasn’t a Jewish book…so I panicked and put down something…The moral of this story is bone up on musicals next time.”

Watch a Groom Surprise His Bride With an Owl Ring Bearer

Owl about that!

Shaun Palmer of Sunderland, England, surprised his bride Adele at their wedding with an owl ring bearer that flew down the aisle to deliver the rings.

The bird went by Bilbo, the name of the protagonist in The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic novel, and the Lord of the Rings series.

The clip was first uploaded on Dec. 4, but it is now going viral.

Though incorporating a bird into the ceremony might not be the mark of a traditional wedding, the practice is something of a growing trend in the U.K. where several companies hire out barn owls that have been trained to deliver wedding rings.

J.K. Rowling Had the Best Response to Ireland Legalizing Gay Marriage

She summed up her feelings by tweeting a meme to a fan

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has been tweeting up a storm since Ireland became the first country to legalize same-sex marriage by a national vote.

When an Irish fan tweeted to the best-selling children’s book writer with the hope that Ireland’s vote would make wizards like Albus Dumbledore feel more welcome in the country, Rowling tweeted back a photo of Keanu Reeves with the caption “WHAT IF DUMBLEDORE AND GANDALF WERE GAY TOGETHER.” (The meme is inspired by the horrified look on Reeves’ face in the 1989 movie Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, and in this case references Dumbledore, the headmaster of wizard school Hogwarts in the Harry Potter series, and Gandalf, the heroic wizard from The Lord of the Rings.)

Rowling revealed in 2007 that she always thought of Dumbledore as gay, though his sexuality was not stated in the books.

Tony Acevedo wanted to meet the character because "Deadpool never dies"

A young cancer patient got to meet the anti-hero Deadpool—as played by Ryan Reynolds—thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The foundation sent Tony Acevedo, who suffers from Hodgkin Disease, a type of lymphoma, up to the Vancouver set where Reynolds is filming Deadpool, the movie based on the Marvel comic book due out in 2016.

As Reynolds wrote on Instagram, “I wasn’t expecting him to sneak the mask, put on the gloves, smile… and then beat Deadpool about the face, arms and jugular with blazing speed.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a Make-A-Wish spokesperson said Acevedo wanted to meet this particular fictional character because “Deadpool never dies.”
