As more and more people are forced to stay home these days, many are using it as an opportunity to foster a pet to help keep them company during isolation. The people at Busch beer decided to incentivize people even more by offering 3 months of free beer to anyone who fosters a dog during the self-isolation days.
Their new heartwarming slogan for the campaign is "Social distancing is better with a furry friend by your side and a cold beer in your hand" and to be honest, we can not imagine better isolation conditions.
From now until April 22, the beer brand will give a free three-month supply of drinks to those who adopt or foster a dog through Midwest Animal Rescue & Services (MARS). The beer maker will give recipients a $100 gift card, the cash equivalent of two 24-pack cases of Busch, for three months. Busch is also donating $25,000 to MARS to help find animals loving homes across the country.
"During these uncertain and lonelier times, people need an escape: cue the cute puppy memes and photos," said a spokesperson for Busch in a statement. "But as much as we need those cute puppy pics to help get us through social distancing, it's actually them who need us."
Sure, sometimes the truth is indeed stranger than fiction. That being said, we'd be very surprised if all these fun and absurd tidbits of "history knowledge" went on to be true. But hey, the world is a strange place, and human beings have acted out in all kinds of bizarre ways for a very long time.
The Gotham season 2 finale left us all wondering whether or not that was Jerome we heard cackling away in the background....it turns out the fans with the astute ears out there weren't too far off the mark.
"[The laugh] was really to keep [the Joker] alive, to keep Jerome and that threat of the Joker alive. We wanted to make sure fans don't feel that we're completely done with [the mythology of the Joker] because we are 100 percent, absolutely not," he said. "[But,] it's not going to be something we delve into right way at the top of the season," Woodruff explained.
It's the start of another really weird work week working from home! It's purrfectly healthy to take a mental health break and reward yourself with some of the funniest, cutest and plain bizarre cat videos on Instagram!
If you missed last week's top 5, you can find it here. There are few things in this world better than scrolling through cat hashtags on Instagram.
But we can't think of any. Nor do we want to.
Sailors see some haunting sights while out at sea. There's a whole lot of unexplored space out in those oceans, and mysterious creatures that look like they swam right out of a fever dream can present themselves at spontaneous times, to sailors. The thought of being out in the middle of nowhere on a big body of pitch black water, and suddenly seeing some unexplainable phenomenon that looks like a monster from the underworld itself, is enough to send chills down the spine. Nope. I'm good.
If you weren't paying attention to the D23 Expo this weekend, you might have missed some big Star Wars news: Disney is bringing brand new Star Wars themed experiences to both Disneyland and Disney World. Both versions of Star Wars Land will feature a brand new planet in a 14 acre park, where guests will be able to visit a port city:
Two signature rides will be featured: one letting you pilot the Millennium Falcon, and another that drops you into the middle of a climactic battle.

Each week we bring you a talented female artist who creates incredible quality content and this week, we've picked Becca Saladin, the graphic designer behind Instagram account @royalty_now_. Becca's combined passion for making history come alive and photoshop means that she is able to "Photomanipulate how historical figures would look if they were alive today", according to her Facebook page.

Once you've enjoyed her brilliant creations, check out last week's female artist of the week in case you missed it.
Seems like social isolation is making us all so much more creative.
like this woman from New York, for example.
While practicing social distancing at home, Lizzie Bartelt became more and more interested in the while cat roaming in the house in front of her.
Since she couldn't just walk up to his apartment or wait to meet his owner sometime soon, she decided to find out his name the quarantine way, by putting a poster asking "What's the white cat's name?" on her window.
Chris, her neighbor living right in front of her, replied with a sign too and this lovely window tale has now gone viral with more than 657K likes.
This fun short story is just the best. The main character ends up befriending the very monster that lived underneath his bed. Apparently the monster followed him around, and ended up crashing in a spot under the fridge. From there, the friendship develops between the two, and we even see the monster step up in quite the heroic moment. Love it.
