  1. Texas School Suspends 9-Year Old for Threatening to Make Classmate Disappear With the One Ring

    There is only one Lord of the Ring, only one who can bend it to his will. And he does not share power.

    The boy's father assured officials that his son lacks the magical power to back up his statements. "He's a total squib."

  3. So There’s a Gamergate-Backed Candidate Running For City Council In Texas Today

    Ahh, government!

    This Election Day, 28-year-old professional model and volunteer firefighter MacKenzie Kelly is running as the Republican candidate against five other opponents for city council in Austin's fairly suburban, white, and wealthy district 6. Her platform issues include lifting the ban on plastic bags, lowering the property tax, improving Austin's growing traffic congestion, and ethics in game journalism. No, seriously. That was not a meme joke. Kelly is actually a member of Gamergate.

  4. 14-Year-Old Lived in Texas Walmart for Days by Building Secret Forts

    What? Was Costco closed?

    Anyone who's ever held a retail job is surely familiar with the concept of finding a convenient hiding place among boxes and camping out to avoid detection, but hiding in a store you're not being paid to occupy is a new one by me. A teenager in Texas did just that by building two secret forts in a Walmart and living there for four days before being detected. Maybe he was just waiting for someone else to start a Community-style box fort vs. pillow fort competition?

  6. Family in Beeville, Texas Attacked by Swarm of Locusts—Just Kidding! It Was Bees

    "See, I told you we should have moved to Puppyville instead."

    There's trouble right here in Beeville, with a capital "T," and that rhymes with "B," and that stands for "bees." Which, you know, would seem pretty obvious considering the name of the town and the county and that it's located square in the middle of Bee County, Texas. You think maybe the town's founders were trying to tell us something here?

  8. Two-Headed Turtle Born at San Antonio Zoo, Probably Not a Ninja

    And no, it's not an alien.

    On June 18th, the world's cutest little abomination was born at the San Antonio Zoo-- a female Texas cooter turtle with two heads. The zookeepers took advantage of the situation and gave the turtle the most novel name possible, Thelma and Louise. According to one of the zookeepers, the heads each have their own personality. One is very curious, the other very aggressive.

  9. Amazon Reviewers Praise the Patriarchy-Busting Power of Wendy Davis’ Filibuster Shoes

    A Series of Fallopian Tubes

    Everyone's still buzzing over Texas State Senator Wendy Davis' epic filibuster in defense of a woman's right to choose. For good reason, too. I hope it proves to be something that people remember—and talk about, and teach their kids about—for decades to come. That enthusiasm has found a surprising outlet on the page for the bright red running shoes Davis wore while (literally) standing up for women's rights for a grueling 11 hours. Actually, no, it's not particularly surprising that people would leave reviews praising Mizuno Women's Wave Rider 16 Running Shoes for their ability to "outrun [the] patriarchy." This is the Internet, after all. But it's still fun.

  10. Texas Senate Forgets Screen Caps Are a Thing, Tries to Rewrite History

    It all sort of unfolded like a George R.R. Martin novel, except the bill was the only thing that died.

    Did you miss last night's monumental Texas state senate filibuster debacle? Because the Internet didn't. Over 160,000 people tuned into a single Youtube livestream to watch the debacle that raged on in the Texas senate over a bill that would have wreaked havoc on abortion centers and reproductive health clinics in the state. Of course, that didn't stop GOP Senators from attempting to manipulate the senate record into reflecting the exact opposite of what actually happened. Silly senators. Don't you know by now that you can't pull one over on the Internet? And that those who tried will be publicly lashed for their troubles? Well, I suppose you do now.
