  • In case you hadn’t heard, Princess Charlotte’s christening was last weekend, and everyone continues to fawn over the adorable pictures.

    Royal watchers are asking one question that has piqued our interest: “Is the nanny of the Prince and Princess of Wales Mary Poppins??”

    Not quite. Meet Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo — the real-life version of Mary Poppins.

     Sharply dressed in a bowler hat, crisp white gloves, and a professionally monogrammed dress, she seems “practically perfect in every way.”

     Maria probably is perfect, given that she is a Norland nanny, a caretaker produced by the Norland College, England’s most prestigious nanny training school. She trained three years for the gig.

     Word is that Will and Kate are so confident with her, they don’t plan on hiring another nanny.

     Hopefully all that time prepped her to deal with this kid:

  • Joining the elite league of junk food we could probably do without but would never turn down is — the french fry burger taco.

    In this crazy concoction, created by the Vulgar Chef, the french fries serve as the taco shell to keep the burger in place. Sounds delicious, but also extremely messy.

    According to the chef, creating this french fry shell is not as daunting as it seems:

    “The fries are prepared the same as with the other fry recipes. I chop up some fries, mix them with shredded cheese, nuke them in the microwave for a good 30 seconds, form the fries into the desired shape I need.

    “For the fry shells, the desired shape is a circle. The easiest way to go about this is to lay the nuked cheesy fries out on a flat surface and let cool slightly.”

    This plus a deep-fried Big Mac is everything we never knew we wanted.

  • It’s summer, and the heat is on.

    The cute pup in this video has discovered that the best way to cool down is a car’s air-conditioning vent.

    The footage was posted on Reddit and has since gone viral, attracting thousands of views and lots of adoring comments.

    There’s no confusing this pooch for a hot dog — he’s unmistakably chill.

  • It’s the most wonderful time of the year — Shark Week is here!

     In celebration, we plan on watching hours of dramatic shark videos. One that has already gone viral is a diver’s dramatic encounter with a great white.

     During a dive in South Africa, the diving cage was attacked by the 11-and-a-half-foot beast.

    Unbelievably, the shark was even closer than he appears, according to the video’s description, posted to YouTube by Hillary Rae.

     From the sounds of the screaming, we will stick to the television for our shark fix.

     The 28th Shark Week kicked off this weekend on Discovery Channel, with a record amount of programing dedicated to the topic.

  • This girl clearly couldn’t wait for her tooth to come out on its own.

    When one stubborn baby tooth just wouldn’t come out, Alexis Davidson decided to take matters into her own hands — and pretty extreme measures at that.

    The 11-year-old used a sling bow to remove the tooth in question. We definitely recommend not trying this method of tooth extraction on your own.

    Alexis’s dad, alligator wrestler Jason McDonald, was on hand and recorded the whole thing.

    “We were trying to think of a neat way to help her pull her last few remaining baby teeth,” McDonald said.  “Alexis is a special kid. She does a lot of crazy stuff with me, like walking the slack line over a pool of alligators.”

    Extreme tooth removal seems to be a trend — remember the dad who pulled out his daughter’s baby tooth with a javelin?
