What do ya know- another lazy cat. Such a surprise.

This fluff ball of cat is so lazy that it’s pulled in a plastic container attached to a remote controlled car and clearly DGAF. It might as well be waving to all its haters as it rolls on by like the sleepy grand marshal in a kitty parade.

Now imagine this video with “Ridin’ Dirty” playing in the background. Better, right?



Shocking video of Dr Phil’s Cash Me Ousside Girl has emerged showing her fighting with her mother.

Thirteen-year-old Danielle Bregoli, who is known for her catch phrase which she debuted on the show last year, was filmed struggling with her mother Barbara Ann in footage captured by a friend on their cell phone.

The constantly sparring pair are seen entangled in each other’s bodies while they hit each other in the face, according to Daily Mail.

It is not clear when the fight in the video occurred but it appeared to center around Barbara Ann demanding that Danielle give her her phone back.

“B**** give me the phone!” she shrieked repeatedly.

Police have been called to the family’s home in Boynton Beach, Florida, more than 50 times in the past year amid calls for domestic disturbances.

Barbara Ann, 49, has never faced child cruelty charges. There is no suggestion she is guilty of it.

She took Danielle on the show last year in a desperate bid to correct her out of control behaviour.

The teenager was sent away to a behavioural camp and returned vowing to be more refined.

But her debut won her stratospheric fame and appears to have sent her back to the foul-mouthed, scrappy attitude she was brought on the show to fix.

Her mother also appears to have let the overnight stardom go to her hair.

When they reappeared on Dr Phil earlier this year, she made a list of demands and told the show’s producers that they should be grateful for the ratings her daughter brought them.

Barbara Ann and Danielle have a fiery relationship. Earlier this month, police were called to the home amid reports of another fight between the pair.

Boynton Beach detectives told DailyMail.com that the altercation was only verbal and that no one came to any harm.

No one was arrested in connection with the fight which began when Barbara Ann asked one of Danielle’s older friends to leave their home.

You should know a couple of things before we embark on a recap of Sesame Street’s surprisingly vicious takedowns of Donald Trump, which span three decades leading up to his political rise.

First: Trump is most often depicted as a grouch – unpleasant monsters who base their culture and economy around garbage. So when “Donald Grump” appears in a 2005 episode as a badly toupeed muppet “whose name equals trash” that’s not necessarily an insult.

The other thing is that Trump, as president of the United States, wants to end public television funding that created Sesame Street, more often known for lessons on counting and sharing than biting satire.

There are only three known episodes in which the character “Grump” appears, each time playing the villain in a moral allegory.

Whenever Grump visits Sesame Street, chaos is not far behind.

We know of nothing to suggest any link between these skits and Trump’s budget proposal.

He is not the first president to desire the elimination of public broadcasting funds. And because the show now airs on HBO, Trump’s plan is unlikely to destroy Sesame Street, as Grump tried so hard to do.

Like Trump, Grump’s ambitions started out big and got huge. He first appears in an episode in the late 1980s, a grouch in a tacky fedora, knocking on Oscar’s iconic trash can to offer a deal.

“Grump’s the name. Ronald Grump,” he says. “I’m a builder.”

That was Trump’s fame too, then. The original Trump Tower in New York had opened a few years earlier.

Grump shows Oscar a colour rendering of six trash cans stacked on top of each other.

“Grump Tower,” he says, giving the “u” a faux-European pronunciation. “It’s a duplex can-dominium.”

Oscar is intrigued. His friend, Maria, is horrified.

But Grump entices Oscar to sign a contract, essentially bribing him with a free room in the tower and three bags of trash.

In the next scene, the dented trash can that generations of children had grown up watching is gone. A shabby stack of Grump cans stands in place of Oscar’s old home.

“Isn’t it tony?” Oscar brags from the top of the tower.

But then Grump notices the grouch’s worm and elephant friends living below.

“Get ’em out!” he snaps. No pets in the contract.

Trump, too, had his tenant issues. In the 1970s, the New York Times notes, the Justice Department sued him and his father for allegedly refusing to rent to black people. The developers settled with the Government, admitting no guilt.

Back on Sesame Street, Oscar was only saved when his friends cobbled together their own trash bags to pay off Grump and get rid of his tower.

But Grump would be back.

“Real estate tycoon Ronald Grump has announced plans to demolish Sesame Street and create a lavish new Grump Tower,” a dire Barbara Walters announced in 1994, at the beginning of the show’s 25th anniversary special.

It had been years since Grump last showed his face on the block. Now he was played by Joe Pesci, trying to pitch a crowd on his plan to build a combination tower, restaurant and theme park. Historic Sesame Street would be turned into a luxury boutique in the lobby.

“Trust me, you won’t miss all this,” Grump says, then flies into a rage at the first sign of dissent.

Over the course of the special, Grump physically intimidates Benny Rabbit and sort of hits on a reporter played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

The muppets try to win him over. With clip montages. (This is an anniversary show from the mid-90s, after all.) But the memory of a little girl kissing Kermit the Frog after being taught to count leaves the Grump “deeply and profoundly disgusted”.

“If there’s one thing I despise, it’s cheap sentiment,” he says.

Finally, Big Bird recalls Sesame Street’s greatness and leads all the residents in a march down Sesame St to stop Grump. They find him once again trying to con Oscar into moving out of his trash can. Grump Tower’s would-be tenants refuse to mingle with grouches.

In a deus-ex-machina twist that baffled at least one critic, Oscar reveals that his can is government property, and so Trump can’t force him out.

“This neighbourhood does not deserve a Grump Tower anyway,” Grumps says. Then he joins all the muppets in a celebratory song to end the episode, because that’s just how children’s TV sometimes works.

More than 10 years went by after the special. In the real world, Trump made his first flirtations with politics and began honing his public image as the severe host of Celebrity Apprentice.

In 2005, his likeness returned to Sesame Street as “Donald Grump”: a grouch again, but now in an orange wig and famous among muppets for his reality show and spectacular wealth.

With a great rumble, Grump popped out of a can atop a table strewn with Grump-branded trash.

The muppets chanted: “Grump! Grump! Grump!”

“I’m the trashiest, I’m the grouchiest Grump,” he sang.

And then, as he always did, Grump sowed division on Sesame Street.

He enlisted the muppets into a contest to become his helper, making them compete with each other to perform menial tasks, like sorting his old sneakers.

The contest narrowed to a match-up between Elmo, Oscar and his girlfriend, Grundgetta. But the latter two spent all their time arguing with each other about the prize. Elmo worked the hardest and won all the events. Grump cut him anyway.

He chose as his apprentices the two other grouches. Because, he explained, they were caustic and ineffective at their jobs.

Sesame Street‘s parent company has not yet responded to questions about Grump’s origins, and whether he might return during the Trump administration.



A swimmer has been filmed using a moving train as a platform to jump into the river below.

Children on the Ngaruawahia rail bridge have been worrying train drivers for generations, though Sunday’s stunt brought even more danger.

It could have ended with a death or lost limbs, KiwiRail says, but that message isn’t keeping kids out of the way of passing trains.

A hot Sunday drew a crowd to the bridge – including Hamiltonian Simon Howe, who started filming after a minute-long honk about 3pm.

It was the third train he’d seen on a day of swimming, and having a few jumps himself, and it came to a complete stop as kids teased the driver.

“[The driver] was just beeping its horn and refused to go any further everyone jumped off the bridge,” he said.

“Two guys jumped on to the back of the train and then, when the train started going again, they jumped off the train again.”

Howe only caught one of the jumpers on video – someone he knows but doesn’t want to name – and said he later found out there was a second.

Police arrived about 20 minutes later and tried to clear the bridge.

Howe shared the video on social media and said many people applauded the train jumper.

“No-one’s gone to that level before. It sort of made him a bit famous.”

“I do feel sorry for the train drivers. It’s pretty harsh for them, but in the same hand, it’s what they’ve been doing for many years in Ngaruawahia. It’s what they do, it’s what their uncles and their fathers do… It’s somewhat culture.”

High fences were put around the bridge and included barbed wire, he said, but someone has taken that down.

So the swimmers are back on the bridge and, though the trains toot as they go through the town, no-one has much regard for them, he said.

Some of the kids he has seen look about six years old.

People on the Ngaruawahia rail bridge have been a thorn in KiwiRail’s side for years, general manager of asset management David Gordon said.

The person in the video could have slipped between the carriages and been killed or lost limbs.

“You’ve got a group of kids who are going to be daredevils. They are not really considering what the implications are for them, and I think more for their families than anything, if one of them gets hurt,” Gordon said.

“We’ve talked to the council about what you can do and we’ve talked to the police about it. It is just seemingly an intractable problem – which is not a great thing to say, but we’ve not been able to find ourselves a way through this.”

Fencing it off didn’t work, and even if security guards were stationed there it would be hard to keep up with large groups of children.

“It’s a really challenging one because you can’t really make the bridge jumping-off-proof. It’s just impossible to do that. And saying to the kids ‘Don’t do that, don’t do that’ from an authority point of view, it’s pretty challenging,” Gordon said.

And with people on the bridge every time there’s a hot day, he feels most sorry for the train drivers.



When Charde Heremaia came across “a disgusting mother f*****g mess” outside McDonald’s on Queen Street, she decided to do something about it.

“I went into the McDonalds, asked for a bag and a pair of gloves, and then picked it all up.”

Heremaia then picked up the burger boxes, paper bags and cups that littered the street.

She was cheered on by passers-by, who even helped her as she showed the litter bugs what it truly means to be a tidy Kiwi.

“It’s disgusting, I feel sorry for the McDonalds workers on Saturday night.

“You wouldn’t go to the home of a friend or family member and leave it in such a state, so why do people think they can do it here.”

Heremaia says the mess is a common sight outside McDonald’s restaurants across the country on Friday and Saturday nights.

“At a certain age, it’s just common sense to clean up after yourself.”

Heremaia, known for her Memoirs of a Maori social media presence, filmed footage of the rubbish and posted it on Facebook.

“Leave your bulls*** at home,” she said, filming overflowing bins and packaging strewn across the pavement.

Heremaia called the rubbish “revolting” and asked “Who the f*** do you think you are messing up the f*****g street?”

Shortly after sharing the video, Heremaia wrote a heartfelt message for all the people working in the service industries.

“Shout out to the people who work to serve others! Whether you’re a cleaner who has to clean up lazy people’s rubbish, whether you service motel rooms to keep them clean and tidy for the people staying, whether you work in retail where every second mother f***** asks to speak to your manager or whether you bust your ass in hospitality.

“I love you and appreciate what you do. I hate people who disrespect others in these industries in particular,” she explained on Facebook.

“I don’t give a f*** if someone is paid to clean up after you or whatever, just have some respect and make their jobs easier aye.”

The latest reports of the mess comes on the heels of investigations into filthy McDonald’s restaurants in Australia.

A number of outlets were handed fines from the NSW Food Authority for unacceptable food practices last year, The Daily Telegraph reported.

Stanmore McDonald’s in Sydney’s inner west, was slapped with a A$24,000 ($25,633) fine.

Last year, a McDonalds in Wellington came under fire after photos emerged of a “disgusting mess” left behind by customers.

The photos drew a lot of comments, with most criticising the patrons for not cleaning up after themselves. Others blamed McDonald’s staff for not cleaning up fast enough.



We’ve all had this Monday morning feeling before. But a seal in Melbourne took that to the extreme.

The seal was captured hitching a ride on the front of an unnamed ship that was heading into the Victorian capital on Monday morning, lying on the vessel’s bow.

The ship was making its way up the Yarra River, according to 7 News Melbourne. Although, exactly how the seal got onto the ship, considering it was coming into the harbour from the sea, remains a mystery.



Footage has emerged of a woman – thought to be a freedom camper – going to the toilet in a gutter in a Dunedin street.

Newshub is reporting that the woman was filmed in Vogel St on Sunday morning.

The incident took place in front of APET Racing, a workshop that has two security cameras, one of which filmed the woman.

She is seen finishing up, prodding the offending matter further into the gutter, then wandering back along the street and getting into a white Toyota van.

Newshub said a reporter approached a couple inside the van this afternoon, playing them the footage, but the occupants denied any knowledge of the incident.
