  1. I have a friend with two corgis, named Sebastian and Geronimo. I think those are pretty good names, for some pretty good pups

  2. The British Army has a long tradition of animal mascots. My local Regiment, the Mercian Regiment, has a Swaledale Ram called Private Derby XXXII as it's mascot.

  3. The image of "Pedro the 1st of Portugal" you have is actually of "Pedro the 1st of Brazil". Two different people. Pedro I of Brazil, after leaving the country to go [back] to his native Portugal (he was the heir to João VI, and became Brazil's ruler after the independence in 1822) took the throne as Pedro IV (he was the 1st of Brazil, but the 4th of Portugal). Portugal's Pedro I was the king of Portugal 500 years [in the 14th century] before the other Pedro [in the 19th century].

  4. Dear Lord, I don't even know what I would do if my husband crapped out on me during labor to play some game . . . .
    Also, do you know if the dude with the glass bones is related to that sales fish from that one Spongebob episode where Spongebob and Patrick sell chocolate?

  5. 29 facts and number 29 trending. I feel like there is something to say about that but I don't have the drive to make a joke about it.

  6. Mental floss? More like mental gloss, cause I'm so disinterested I'm glossing right over you. Wait, that was bad, I can do better…


    Mental Loss, because your so boring you put me to sleep…as in kill me…wait, that one was worse…

    Maybe just forget the whole thing.

  7. Commenting on the dutch birthday one; thank god it's not everywhere lol. There are designated arwas people can set up their stand. Otherwise it would be chaos xD
