  • Video shows young girl learning her baby brother will grow up...

    Mike Krumboltz, Yahoo News at The Sideshow7 hrs ago

    We're not evil. We don't delight in watching children cry their eyes out. And yet, in this case, we're going to have to make an exception.

    In a video that is sure to go viral, Sadie, 5, is informed that her baby brother won't be a roly-poly bundle of giggles forever. He's going to grow up.

    This was apparently the first Sadie had heard about it. Through a fountain of tears, Sadie declares that she doesn't want her brother to grow up. No, sir!

    "He's so cute," Sadie sobs, while giving her brother little kisses on his forehead. "Oh, you are so cute, I love your cute little smiles."

    "Oh, my gosh, I want him to stay little," she continues.

    As if on cue, the brother -- who, we admit, makes most puppies look like gargoyles -- gives his big sis a heart-melting smile.

    Sadie, we feel your pain.

  • A ChocoTaco mystery: Who updated the treat's Wikipedia entry?

    Mike Krumboltz, Yahoo News at Yahoo News13 days ago

    Paging Woodward and Bernstein. And, maybe Ben and Jerry while we're at it. Your investigative talents are needed in Washington, D.C. Somebody from inside Congress — we don't know who — has updated the Choco Taco page on Wikipedia.

    All Wikipedia edits are done anonymously, but a Twitter bot keeps track of the changes made from IP addresses in the U.S. Congress. Most of the time, those edits are run-of-the-mill stuff. Things like updates to politicians, historical entries, bills, etc. Blah, blah, blah.

    But on Monday, somebody, perhaps with a little too much time on his or her hands, edited the entry for the iconic ice cream dessert that's shaped like a taco, the Atlantic reported.
