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

    Mike Krumboltz, Yahoo News at Yahoo News9 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.

  • Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the world's most patient horse

    Mike Krumboltz, Yahoo News at The Sideshow25 days ago

    A horse is a horse, of course, of course. And goats shouldn't climb on a horse, of course. Unless of course, that is, of course, it's a very patient horse.

    Like, really patient.

    And there can be no doubt that Mr. G has to be the most even-tempered, chillest, "hey, like, whatever man" horse that ever lived.

    In a video that is quickly going viral, a horse rests on its belly while several baby goats climb all over him. Two goats climb aboard while the littlest goat watches patiently. Florida resident Debbie Spivey Snyder posted the footage to Facebook.

    Mr. G doesn't seem to mind the goats one bit. In fact, who knows, maybe the horse is enjoying the impromptu massage. If only cats and dogs got along this well.

    Although, actually, sometimes they do.
