1. A Security Guard Gets Fired After Documenting Five Months of His Own Farts on Instagram Meat Paul FLART!
Of all the ways you can get fired, this is one of our all-time favorites.
A chubby security guard working the front desk at a hospital in Florida has spent the last five months documenting his very audible FLATULENCE while on the clock.
He won't reveal his last name, but his first name is Doug. And every time he let one rip, he recorded his facial expression. Then he posted the videos to his Instagram account under the name "Paul Flart" which is a "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" reference.
Earlier this week, someone posted a two-minute montage of the videos online, and it blew up on Reddit. So he's 'Internet famous' now. And he's already dealing with the fallout. Because yesterday, he live-streamed himself getting FIRED for it.
His boss at the hospital wasn't happy about all the attention. Especially because some of the videos show the hospital logo in the background.
Technically, they fired him for using his phone too much at work. And he didn't even try to argue. He just refused to stop live-streaming while they fired him.
But Doug's not sweating it. He says his plan now is to just, quote, "run with this" and see where it goes. And he's already making "Paul Flart" merchandise.
2. Whale Watchers Get Soaked by a Humpback Leaping Right Next to Them
This may be the best whale watching experience you could ask for. A massive humpback off the coast of Alaska leapt out of the water right NEXT to a boat filled with whale watchers and splashed down within a few feet of them.
Everyone on the boat got soaked and they loved it.
3. Why Doesn't This Kid's Reflection Match His Movement?
This clip has been racking up tons of hits. It's a young boy standing in front of a floor-length mirror and then his reflection starts walking away BEFORE he does. Obviously, it's an optical illusion.
4. A Pod of Dolphins Guards a Humpback Mother and Calf
Somebody on a whale watching boat off the coast of Australia posted video of a pod of dolphins PROTECTING a female humpback and her calf from five male humpbacks that are trying to mate with her.
The female doesn't want to mate because it would separate her from her calf and it would probably die.
There's a good look at the dolphins at 1:13, and 3:51
