Rugby player takes metaphor to extreme with bizarre interview about getting back in saddle

An English rugby player took sports clichés to an entirely different level Wednesday when talking about his next match in a bizarre interview which has now gone viral.

Joe Marler, who plays for London-based Harlequins in the Gallagher Premiership, was previewing the club’s next match against Bath and essentially said his team needed to get back in the saddle.

Out of the gate, Marler explained his team’s disappointment following a 53-21 loss to French side Clermont Auvergne.

“I wasn’t hurting as much as the lads who were out there, but I definitely felt it and I know how hard the boys have taken that. They will be disappointed with the account that we put out,” Marler said, a fairly standard response for a sportsman after a bad defeat.

But we have got another week to get back on the horse, you know, and take that horse to the water. And you can ask that horse, you can say ‘hey, horsey, do you want to have a drink, or do you want to swim?’ It’s up to that horse to then realize what he wants to do in his life.

— Joe Marler

The interview then took a bizarre turn, however, when Marler added: “But we have got another week to get back on the horse, you know, and take that horse to the water. And you can ask that horse, you can say ‘hey, horsey, do you want to have a drink, or do you want to swim?’ It’s up to that horse to then realize what he wants to do in his life.”

He goes onto do an impression of an Irish talking horse that wants to greet fans at the club’s home stadium.

“That horse, at the moment, wants to go out on Saturday, he wants to clippity-clop all the way to The Stoop [the stadium] and he wants to say ‘Hello’ to those fans.

“And he goes ‘I’m sorry about the result last week, but I’m going to give a better performance here at home against Bath.’ He’s a slightly Irish horse. So we are looking forward, like I say, to getting back on that horse.”

Just to be clear, Marler said there’s no way he’s riding that horse.

“I don’t like horses. I can’t ride,” he said.

The 29-year-old prop has been with the Harlequins since 2009 and has made 193 appearances with the club. He’s also appeared in 62 matches for England’s national team.

California fire department welcomes 9 babies in 5 months

A California firehouse welcomed nine tiny members into their family in recent months, and celebrated their baby boom with a touching photoshoot. The seven girls and two boys were all born between March and July, and posed with their Rancho Cucamonga firefighter dads for the shoot.

“Say hello to Rancho Cucamonga Fire’s newest little family members!” the Fire District wrote on its Facebook page. “Between March and July of this year, nine babies were born in the department and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to capture this special moment. We are thrilled to see our RCFD fire family keep growing!”

Man behind ‘Blinking White Guy’ GIF raises over $25,000 for MS with help of viral fame

Westlake Legal Group twitter_istock Man behind 'Blinking White Guy' GIF raises over $25,000 for MS with help of viral fame fox-news/tech/topics/viral fox-news/health/nervous-system-health/multiple-sclerosis fox-news/good-news fox news fnc/health fnc article Alexandria Hein 32814788-63d4-5bb4-b79a-8873a55dcc66

The man behind one of Twitter’s most well-known GIFs has put his Internet fame to good use and raised over $25,000 for multiple sclerosis (MS). In a tweet to his 73,000 followers, Drew Scanlon stepped forward as “Blinking White Guy” to make his plea.

“Hi Internet! I’m Drew and THIS IS MY FACE,” he wrote on Sept. 19. “If this GIF has ever brought you joy in the past, I humbly ask you to consider making a donation to the National MS Society. It would mean a lot to me and to those I know affected by the disease!”

‘DIEHARD’ TANNER LEFT WITH HOLE IN FACE AFTER SKIN CANCER DIAGNOSIS

He then included a link to his fundraising page on the Bike MS: Waves to Wine 2019 website. In a follow-up tweet posted Sept. 21, Scanlon used his own GIF to express his astonishment at the success of his campaign.

“Folks, we have raised over TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS so far!! Thank you SO much to everyone who has contributed, this is truly astounding! Pictured: live footage of my astonishment,” he said, alongside the infamous GIF.

MINNESOTA MAN CONTRACTS RARE FUNGAL INFECTION THAT KILLED HIS DOG LAST YEAR

On his fundraising page, Scanlon said he has two close friends who were diagnosed with MS, as well as some of their family members. MS is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body, according to the National MS Society. The cause is unknown, and the progress, severity and symptoms vary from person to person. Symptoms can also fluctuate or change over time.

Some of the more common symptoms may include fatigue, walking difficulties, numbness or tingling, spasticity, weakness, vision problems, dizziness and vertigo, bladder problems, sexual problems, bowel problems, pain and itching, cognitive changes, emotional changes and depression. Less common symptoms may present as speech problems, trouble swallowing, tremor, seizures, breathing issues and hearing loss.

There is no known cure for MS, but treatments can help modify or slow progress of the disease, and manage relapses. Scanlon touched on this on his fundraising page and said that’s why he decided to partake in Bike MS. From Sept. 21-22, he cycled over 120 miles from San Francisco to wine country as part of the fundraiser.

“If a fraction of those who have seen my goofy face donated to MS research, I have a feeling we could kick this thing in no time!” he wrote.

While the cycling part of the fundraiser has ended, Scanlon noted his page is accepting donations until November.

Many Twitter users were quick to thank him for drawing attention to the cause and put their own spin on his GIF.

Miami Marlins left fielder Austin Dean proved he’s a chip off the old block.

During Friday night’s game against the Washington Nationals, Dean showed off his arm – and aim – when he threw a ball at a fan’s beer can pyramid. Amazingly he left standing the pyramid and only knocked off the top can with a perfect toss from the outfield.

The Sporting News reported that Dean’s feat was enough to secure legendary status among drunk fans watching a 53-100 baseball team.

The new outlet calculated Dean’s toss traveled more than 20 feet but what was most impressive was how casual he made it look.

Little girl who says she bought ‘yip-tick’ from ‘Homie Depot’ goes viral in adorable video

Where do you buy your lipstick? A little girl in Florida says she bought hers at “Homie Depot.”

In a precious, viral conversation between father and daughter, dad Peter Sowell asks his daughter — who was caught wearing bright red lipstick — where she got the makeup from.

“Did you do anything in the bathroom?” Sowell asks his daughter, who claims she didn’t do anything, before admitting to putting on some “yip-tick.”

“What’d you put on?” the father asks in a video posted to Facebook in August, to which the child replies, while motioning applying lipstick: “Yip-tick on.”

Failing to convince her father, the girl says the lipstick was hers. When asked if she asked permission to put the lipstick on, the girl says she simply asked herself.

The girl, despite her father’s repeated questions, won’t budge when asked whose lipstick she applied. She says it’s her “yip-tick,” and that she bought it from “Homie Depot” — sparking laughter from both father and daughter.

The adorable video, which Sowell told WTVT he filmed after seeing his daughter with her mother’s “expertly applied” lipstick, received more than 93,000 likes and over 485,000 shares on Facebook as of Sunday.

Loch Ness monster could be a giant eel, researcher reveals

After months of speculation surrounding a study into whether the Loch Ness monster was real, the researcher behind it has revealed it could be a giant eel and not a giant plesiosaur from a long-lost era.

Speaking at a press conference early Thursday morning, New Zealand researcher Neil Gemmell gave his “plausible” explanation for what people may have seen in the past, but added that it is most certainly not a dinosaur.

“We can’t find any evidence of a creature that’s remotely related to that in our environmental-DNA sequence data,” Gemmell said, according to the BBC. “So, sorry, I don’t think the plesiosaur idea holds up based on the data that we have obtained.”

LOCH NESS MONSTER THEORY ‘PLAUSIBLE,’ SCIENTIST CLAIMS

“There is a very significant amount of eel DNA,” Gemmell, a geneticist from New Zealand’s University of Otago, added. “Eels are very plentiful in Loch Ness, with eel DNA found at pretty much every location sampled – there are a lot of them. So, are they giant eels? Well, our data doesn’t reveal their size, but the sheer quantity of the material says that we can’t discount the possibility that there may be giant eels in Loch Ness.”

He continued: “Therefore we can’t discount the possibility that what people see and believe is the Loch Ness monster might be a giant eel.”

European eels can grow up to 5 feet, according to the USGS. They have a diet that consists of insect larvae, mollusks, worms and crustaceans. They’re also able to “survive near freezing temperatures” and are seen as “remarkably mobile,” capable of moving over dams, weirs and even land, adding credence to Gemmell’s findings.

Gemmell, who first announced the study in May 2018, said last month that one theory was “plausible” in attempting to explain the fabled Nessie.

In addition, the ideas that sturgeon or Greenland sharks lived in the loch were also put to rest after Gemmell said no DNA of either creature had been found among the 250 water samples taken from various depths.

LOCH NESS MONSTER: THIS IS SCOTLAND’S PLAN IF THE FABLED BEAST IS CAUGHT

Gemmell’s research was established to find what types of plants and animals live in the loch and not specifically to find the mythical creature, but Gemmell conceded that his work did add to the legend.

“People love a mystery, we’ve used science to add another chapter to Loch Ness’ mystique,” he said, according to the BBC.

One of Scotland’s oldest myths, the story that a creature was living in Loch Ness, dates back to the sixth century. The 19th and 20th centuries, in particular, saw an increase in interest, especially after the infamous “surgeon’s photograph” in 1934.

A study published in April suggested that the legend of the Loch Ness monster and other long-necked “sea monsters” may have been influenced by something very real and even more terrifying — dinosaurs.

The legend of the Loch Ness monster has commonly been attributed to a plesiosaur that somehow managed to survive the mass extinction event that killed off the dinosaurs.

Loch Ness monster theory ‘plausible,’ scientist claims

A team of international scientists has come up with a theory described as “plausible” that could help explain the Loch Ness Monster.

University of Otago geneticist Neil Gemmell said that there have been more than 1,000 sightings of something unknown in Loch Ness, but there are only four explanations for what it could be.

“Our research essentially discounts most of those theories, however, one theory remains plausible,” Gemmell said in comments obtained by the BBC.

LOCH NESS MONSTER: THIS IS SCOTLAND’S PLAN IF THE FABLED BEAST IS CAUGHT

Gemmell added that the findings from his study, which was announced in May 2018, will be revealed on September 5.

As part of the study, Gemmell and other researchers took 250 water samples from various depths. In the samples, there was DNA left by a number of creatures, including skin, scale, feather, fur and feces.

While the researchers did not spot the so-called sea monster, Gemmell, who is described as an expert in genomics, ecology, population, conservation and evolutionary biology, said in June that the results of the study were “surprising.”

One of Scotland’s oldest myths, that a creature was living in Loch Ness, dates back to the sixth century. The 19th and 20th centuries, in particular, saw an increase in interest, especially after the infamous “surgeon’s photograph” in 1934.

Canadian service dogs attend ‘Billy Elliot’ production, photo goes viral

An adorable photo of a group of service dogs sitting in a Canadian theater last week catching a production of “Billy Elliot” has gone viral.

The photo shows the crowd of mainly poodles and golden retrievers taking up at least four rows and attentively watching the stage during the Stratford Festival in Ontario. The objective was to prevent fur from flying during live theater so the pups can help their handlers navigate a theater atmosphere.

“It’s important to prepare the dogs for any activity the handler may like to attend,” said Laura Mackenzie, owner of K-9 Country Inn Working Service Dogs and who spearheaded the outing, told CBC radio.

“The theater gives us the opportunity to expose the dogs to different stimuli such as lights, loud noises and movement of varying degrees. The dogs must remain relaxed in tight quarters for an extended period of time.”

The canines took part in the theater’s “relaxed performance,” made for attendees with autism or for those who need a calmer experience. The venue also has shows made for those with hearing or visual impairments.

“They were all extremely well-behaved,” Stratford Festival spokesperson Ann Swerdfager told the radio station. “I was in the lobby when they came in, then they took their seats, then got out of their seats at intermission and went back. All of the things we learn as humans when we start going to the theater.”

Swerdfager said both cast and audience members were thrilled to see the four-legged attendees and that service dogs are accepted there several times per week. It’s a unique training method that gives service handlers a leg up on attending outings, like a play.

“Everybody was so thrilled to see all these dogs at one time in the audience. It’s really exciting. And it’s thrilling to be part of something that is going to serve theatergoers of the future,” Swerdfager told the outlet.

“It’s wonderful that going to the theater is considered one of the things that you want to train a service dog for, rather than thinking that theatre is out of reach for people who require a service animal because it isn’t,” she added.

All of the doggies were reportedly all very good boys during the show, and Mackenzie said she plans to return with more pups in the future.

“All of the dogs were fantastic and remained relaxed throughout the performance. Some even watched through the cracks of the seats,” said Mackenzie. “The dogs loved the show almost as much as their handlers.”

Creepy ‘zombie snail’ flashes green and orange, freaks out hiker

Do not attempt to adjust the picture. What you are seeing is real.

A hiker going up the hills in Taiwan’s Changhua County earlier this month spotted a bizarre-looking snail that was flashing orange and green after its body was hijacked by a parasite.

“The snail looked like it had multicolored neon lights inside,” hiker Lin Ruian told Viral Press. “I don’t know what was causing it but it was very strange. I poked it with a stick and it rolled over.”

PINK GRASSHOPPER, UNUSUAL AND ‘EXTREMELY RARE,’ SPOTTED IN UK GARDEN

Succinea (amber snails) often become hosts to the parasitic flatworm, known as leucochloridium paradoxum, according to a 2013 study published in the Journal of Zoology.

The study notes the “[t]he infected snails with pulsating broodsacs behaved differently from their apparently non‐infected counterparts,” adding that they “moved farther, positioned themselves in more exposed and better illuminated places, situated higher in the vegetation.”

Biologist Tomasz Wesołowski, who described leucochloridium paradoxum in the 2013 study, also noted that the infected snails were able to move three times as fast as normal.

The snails flash different colors to imitate caterpillars to hungry birds, who then eat the snail. The process starts all over again, as the birds’ intestinal tract provides a space for the flatworm to reproduce and enter another unsuspecting host.

Remarkably, the snails can survive the event, due to their regenerating capabilities. L. paradoxum exists largely in the eyestalk of the snail, the part the birds go for, as it most resembles a caterpillar, according to the New York Post.

South Carolina deputy saves choking 12-day-old infant after stopping speeding vehicle

A South Carolina sheriff’s deputy is being hailed as a hero after a dramatic video showed how his quick thinking saved the life of a 12-day-old baby girl last month.

Deputy W. Kimbro with the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office pulled a vehicle over on June 11 in the Summerville area for speeding. After the car stopped, one of the passengers exited and explained to Kimbro that they were rushing a small infant to hospital after she was found choking and had stopped breathing.

Kimbro immediately jumped into action, “Let me have the baby.”

In the footage released Thursday, the deputy was captured on his own body cam feeling for a pulse before beginning to massage 12-day-old Riley’s chest. He attempts to open the child’s airway by lifting her neck and inserting his finger in her mouth.

“As long as she’s crying like that she’s breathing,” he can be heard saying

According to the girl’s mother, the infant was in her bassinet sleeping when she went to go take a shower. The woman’s stepmother alerted her when she said that the baby was choking on what might have been milk.

“Her lips are a little blue, I’m worried about her circulation,” Kimbro could be heard telling another deputy.

“Come on, come on baby. She’s breathing as long as she’s crying like that she’s breathing but I’m worried about her because it looks like she’s going in and out,” he continued.

The infant can be seen making small movements and crying every so often but there is one point in the video where she appears to stop moving altogether.

Kimbro clears her airway of saliva and continues to tap on her chest to keep her awake. Again, the infant starts to cry.

“She’s okay, I think she’s going to be okay,” Kimbro said.

The newborn’s chest begins to move and the deputy seems confident that she can now breath. She makes a dramatic movement and stretches her arms out, appearing to signal she’s okay.

“I didn’t feel a heartbeat earlier so I started massaging her heart and now I feel it’s real strong now,” Kimbro told the worried mother.

EMS arrived on the scene shortly after and took over.

Deputy Kimbro was awarded the “Life-Saving Medal” for his actions.
