Helpful Bird Feeds Two Hungry Great Danes Some Tasty Milk-Bones. What A Friend!

We all know that dogs are man’s best friend. But did you know that birds are dog’s best friend?

Don’t believe me? Well then prepare to be amazed as you watch Spike the Umbrella Cockatoo feed his two best buddies some Milk-Bones, by fishing them right out of the box and throwing them onto the floor, where the two grateful Great Danes eagerly wait for their treats.

I suspect it’s payment for protection from the family cat.

These three partners in crime are just too adorable. I wonder if I can teach a bird to feed me cookies the same way?

Dude: Salon calls #CancelColbert activist Suey Park ‘Chop Suey Park’

http://twitter.com/#!/awmorrell/status/451726915443777538

Um, what? That didn’t really happen, did it? Oh yes. It did.

http://twitter.com/#!/GoddamnedBear/status/451727041038401537

Salon.com’s verified Twitter account promoted an interview with Suey Park, the Korean-American activist and writer behind the #CancelColbert and #NotYourAsianSidekick Twitter campaigns. A few quotes from the interview:

http://twitter.com/#!/gabrielmalor/status/451753792607113217
http://twitter.com/#!/Salon/status/451746977005699072

Read the whole thing for context.

But we’ll put that aside for the moment to focus on this: Instead of tagging Park with her Twitter handle, @suey_park, the social media editor tagged @Chop_Suey_Park, a parody account. Screen capture via Hiw.me:

salon-chop-suey-park

That’s quite a screw-up.

http://twitter.com/#!/suey_park/status/451726755263295488

The tweet from Salon’s verified account was quickly and quietly deleted (with no public apology issued), but this tweet hasn’t disappeared … yet.

http://twitter.com/#!/Salon_Politics/status/451725832277725185

@Salon_Politics is not a verified account, but Salon claimed ownership in a 2012 article.

http://twitter.com/#!/NefariousNewt/status/451727789981704192

While Park mentioned the tweet that tagged @Chop_Suey_Park, she was more focused on her criticisms of the Salon piece.

[Update]

Hours later, an apology from Salon for the tweet — an apology that doesn’t mention the specific Twitter handle that was used, natch:

Smash! Loesch pulverizes Dems, media over ‘racist’ rodeo clown idiocy

http://twitter.com/#!/RightWingNerd/status/366950467336536066

Fight like a girl, baby! What had fierce warrior Dana Loesch laying down the smack today? Well, this happened:

http://twitter.com/#!/whpresscorps/status/366899253559296002

That’s right. As Twitchy reported, evidently a rodeo clown wearing an Obama mask must now be entered in the Handbook of Racial Code Words.

http://twitter.com/#!/RightWingNerd/status/366946683810095107

Yep! Who is up for a little Democrat drubbing? Take it away, Dana (with some help from fellow citizens).

Hmm.

Loesch did curate her epic rant from Sunday night and you can read it all here:

http://twitter.com/#!/DLoesch/status/366776520208941057

But Loesch and fellow happy warriors weren’t done. On Monday, they continued to rightly slam Democrats and the media (concentric circles on a Venn diagram) and it was glorious.

Yes. And because racist, natch, as actor James Woods recently pointed out in a hilarious photo-slam.

And an exit question for Missouri State Rep. Jeremy LaFaver, who called it a “modern day blackface show.” No, for serious:

http://twitter.com/#!/EEElverhoy/status/366951262287183873

Make. It. Happen.

Stay tuned!

Indeed. Must-listen radio.

Jessa Duggar attacked for abortion remarks; Sane ‘fight hate, support life’

http://twitter.com/#!/DLoesch/status/516972766470234112

As Twitchy reported, Jessa Duggar of “19 Kids and Counting” visited the Holocaust museum and posted her thoughts on Instagram. She discussed how sobering it was and stressed that “millions of innocents were denied the most basic and fundamental of all rights–their right to life.”

You know what that meant, right? Foul filth and hatred from unhinged libs.

@michellemalkin The intolerance is incredibly vile.

The sane, however, support Jessa Duggar.

Heh: Football fans waited for Bob Costas Incognito lecture; Did he deliver?

http://twitter.com/#!/seanagnew/status/399691072529371136

Snicker. As Twitchy readers know, the sanctimony is strong with Bob Costas. Last year, for instance, he hijacked Sunday Night Football to give an anti-gun lecture.

This week, football fans oh-so-anxiously awaited a lecture on the Richie Incognito “bullying” scandal.

What Happens When An Ice Storm Hits While Flowers Are Still Blooming? Gorgeousness.

Every day there are things that exist in nature that are too cool to even describe. Thankfully, a user on Reddit was able to capture a fascinating natural phenomenon while it was happening. The flowers in Texas were still blooming when they got hit with an ice storm. What happened to those flowers was absolutely beautiful.

The ice covered the branches and petals…

Turning this part of Texas into a winter wonderland.

The cold ice enhances the flowers’ natural beauty.

Usually, adding frost to plants doesn’t result in something amazing… but we’re glad it did at least one time. Source

This Clock Is Hiding A Dark Secret And It’s Absolutely Brilliant. Check It Out.

When we get gifts from our mother, we never think much about where they were bought. But we know she loves us, especially when we receive something beautiful and unique. So when one young man got a special package in the mail, something truly beautiful, he was impressed. But even more so when he turned it over. Kinda.

Oh look at this awesome gift. It’s just beautiful.

imgur

But then turn it over and… whoa, that leaves a mark.

imgur

Whoa. Not sure how I’d feel getting a gift made by someone convicted of sodomy. Although this present was made by a convicted felon, it’s truly great that they have learned a skill, and give back to society. And thanks to the Oregon prison system, where there’s almost no prison violence and a HUGE proportion of prisoners have some type of productive role within the prison, all prisoners get to purchase their own materials and sell whatever they make for whatever price somebody is willing to spend. It’s awesome. But still… I have my hesitations. How would you react? (H/T: Reddit) Share this… interestingly made work of art with others.

This Song Was Originally Performed By A Woman, But When This Man Stepped Onstage? OMG.

Jordan Smith, a 2015 contestant on The Voice, has already been making waves with his talent…but this week, he blew everyone away. He stepped onstage and began singing what was originally an Adele song (“Set Fire To The Rain”).

Most women wouldn’t be able to perform the song perfectly…but a man’s version? Jordan made the crowd go nuts.

Your jaw will be on the FLOOR.

After a performance like that, it’s easy to see why Jordan might just win! That’s the kind of talent that takes people places.
