Gender-reveals are all the rage these days, whether they’re organized after an early ultrasound or right in the hospital.

This humorous dad decided to add a little spice to the good old fashioned “it’s a boy/girl!” revelation to family and friends waiting to hear the good news after their baby girl was born.

In a post shared to Instagram that has now been viewed nearly 80,000 times by Gender Reveal Videos, the happy dad walks out into the waiting room where anxious family members wait to hear if they’ll be buying pink or blue baby gear for the newest member of their family.

With a big grin on his face, he slowly unzips his shirt, revealing a blue shirt. The family squeals with excitement and then explode in happy hysterics to see his little prank: although the shirt is blue, the writing reads: “It’s a girl!”

Their excitement and tears, which likely would have been just as blissful if it had been a boy, just warm your heart. There is just nothing quite like a brand new baby, and especially when there are so many people around to celebrate the good news.

Love it!

Driver Breaks ‘Tree on Top’ Speed Record in 800hp Car

Eat your heart out, Clark Griswold.

Published

on

Everyone handles the tradition of decorating their Christmas tree just a little bit differently than the next, with many relying on family customs handed down through the generations in order to honor those who’ve Christmas’d before them.

These sorts of nuances can come in any form, from the color and arrangement of the lights, to the timing of the tree’s arrival, and even whether or not the decoration will be real or artificial.

And on the point of timing, there is a wide range of opinions on what’s proper.  Does the tree go up in the aftermath of Thanksgiving, our bellies still full of turkey?  Or we wait until just a few days before Christmas comes, hoping to have the freshest fir available?

For those of you still waiting for the last minute, or who may be rushing to get a tree, may we suggest borrowing an Audi from Hennessey Motorsports?

Hennessey Performance has broken its record for fastest car with a tree strapped to the roof

One of the Texas tuning company’s 1,000 hp Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk SUVs hit 181 mph in 2019, and it wanted to see if it could do better.

So owner John Hennessey “borrowed” his wife’s Audi RS6 Avant station wagon, which had been modified with 800 hp, and took it to a closed airport runway where he was conducting tests with the company’s upcoming 300+ mph Venom F5 supercar.

Test driver Spencer Geswein hit 205 mph without a tree on the roof, then went for it with one attached trunk-forward.

After reaching 181 mph the car took a good 10 seconds before it reached a maximum velocity of 183 mph to set a new record, which is unofficial, but also unchallenged.

The tree looked to be under a bit of stress, however….

Video of the stunt can be seen below:

WATCH: Tiny Pup Protects 12 Year-Old Owner from Vicious Wild Animal

GOOD DOG!

Published

on

There are times in every dog owner’s life in which man looks down at beast and wonders just how peculiar and unique this relationship really is.

There are no companion animals more attuned to the human existence than our dogs.  (I’m sorry, horse-owners, but y’all come in a close second).

These are members of the family who feel a duty and nobility about doing the dirty, animalistic work of the group…no matter the size.

In Toronto this week, a young girl and her small dog made big news.

An incredibly brave little Yorkie defended its owner, a 10-year-old girl, from a coyote that attacked the pair while out for a neighborhood walk in Toronto this week.

The Yorkshire terrier, who the family rescued six years ago, suffered “extremely serious tissue injuries to her spine and her leg,” Dorothy Kwan, 10-year-old Lily Kwan’s mother, wrote on a crowdfunding page to raise money for the veterinarian bills.

“You can see our dog putting herself between my daughter and the coyote,” Dorothy Kwan wrote. “Even after she was seriously injured, she continued to bark and chase the coyote away. She fought back.”

The entire scene was captured on video:

The underdog yorkie did spend some time in a canine ICU, but returned home after a few days with 40 stitches and one heck of a story.
