This puppy needs your votes. VOTE FOR THE PUPPY!
(OK, so you’d actually be voting for The Daily Beast which is up for best news website at this year’s Webby’s! But the puppy. Must. click. the. puppy.)
Our reporter visits the Quidditch Western Cup—and finds a handful of punny team names. The one pictured here has a motto: “Our team is Bruin up some Felix Felicis,” which, Jace helpfully explains, refers to both the UCLA Bruins and Felix Felicis—“a potion in the Harry Potter universe is essentially liquid luck.” More photos here!
Live poultry laughter.
Oh how we wish this was a real thing. We’re picturing a fever dream scenario of a stadium full of half-plucked chickens laughing endlessly at their encroaching fate.
Dog does NOT appreciate the adult baby/diaper lover community.

Friend of Newsweek tumblr Amanda McCall (The Wendy Williams Show) and Parks and Recreation funny-guy Ben Schwartz (Jean-Ralphio!) have a new book out this week, Looking on the Bright Side with Baby Animals, which is a follow up to their second book, Asking Awkward Questions with Baby Animals, which followed their first best-seller, Breaking Bad News with Baby Animals, all of which we have long fantasized about plastering all over the office doors of high-level Newsweek executives. Anyway: we asked them to answer some of our burning questions about baby animals, because, well, we think they’re funny. Also, because Amanda once wrote a book called, “Hold My Gold: A White Girl’s Guide to the Hip-Hop.” Please love them.
NWK Tumblr: Do you really think our leg will grow back?
Ben: Well, that’s the best part of our new book. It prevents you from ever having to ‘think’ about things like that. In fact, it prevents you from having to think about anything at all!
Is there a particular baby animal that’s best for breaking bad news?
Amanda: When we started writing our first book, and even into our second book, we thought all baby animals were equally helpful. But now we know that every baby animal has its own particular skill set.
Ben: For example, kittens are good for relationship problems, while puppies are better for medical emergencies. For crime and other legal matters? Baby bunnies. God, they’re good.
Could your new book help Barack Obama handle the economy?
Amanda: If Obama used baby animal postcards in all his negotiations, every American citizen would have free healthcare and drive a Bentley.
Who would i give this book to as a gift?
Amanda: Our books are for everyone. Even Kardashians. In fact, I’m convinced that if this book came out a month earlier, Kim and Kris would still be together.
What’s the most over-rated animal?
Amanda: Well, between us, cute little baby bears can be real divas.
