We’re not sure who started the trend of renaming animals with alternate and more fitting names, but the internet took the ball and ran with it to create these hysterically funny memes. Here are some of our favorites. Thank you, internet.
2018 is shaping up to be the biggest year yet for the Comic Book Movie, with 10 major theatrical releases planned between now and December 31.
Jerry Van Dyke, a veteran actor and the younger brother of iconic comedian Dick Van Dyke, died on Friday afternoon at his ranch in Arkansas.
He was 86 years old.
According to Jerry's wife, per TMZ, the actor passed away with her by his side.
The exact cause of death is unknown at this time, but the couple had been in a car accident two years ago and Van Dyke's health had sadly gone downhill ever since.
A native of Danville, Illinois, Van Dyke got his start on television by making appearances on The Dick Van Dyke Show, the beloved sitcom that starred his real-life older sibling.
He also made appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show and The Judy Garland Show early on in his career.
Prior to dedicating his professional life to acting, Jerry pursued stand-up comedy as a young man and performed at military bases around the globe.
Van Dyke has a very long and impressive resume, but he's likely best known for his role as Assistant Coach Luther Horatio Van Dam on the TV sitcom Coach, which earned him four Emmy Award nominations.
The series ran from 1989 to 1997.
It was anchored by Craig T. Nelson.
Coach centered on the fictional Minnesota State University Screaming Eagles and it often featured guest appearances by professional football figures such as Troy Aikman, Dick Butkus and Jerry Jones, as well as actors like Lucy Liu, Drew Carey and Mary Hart.
Van Dyke's Luther was an assistant coach who was known for his bumbling ways and occasional moments of pathos.
This is a photo of him from the show:
His final small screen appearance took place on ABC’s hit show The Middle in 2015.
Well aware of his brother's enormous fame, Jerry said the following to USA Today back in the 1990s:
"I was always known as Dick Van Dyke's brother and the guy that did My Mother the Car. Now people know me that never knew me before, that don't even know Dick. That's really a thrill."
He maintained this kind of sense of humor throughout his career.
“If I had it all to do over again, I definitely would have turned things down,” he told The Associated Press in 1994, adding:
“Almost everything I did!”
And then there was this, to The Toronto Star that same year:
“I’m getting sick of Dick riding on my coattails. I just can’t prop up his career forever."
Jerry Van Dyke is survived by two kids and his wife.
May he rest in peace.
Megan Fox, is that you? As with her blockbuster flick Transformers, Fox is more than meets the eye in her Face Tune-licious new selfie that makes her look like a cross…
Call us skeptical on this one, but it's worth passing along to let you know what's going on.
There's a new clip of a sex tape making its rounds on the internet right now, reportedly showing Offset cheating on Cardi B -- again -- with an unnamed woman.
The tape, which you can see (below), is a very short clip as it's been sent on Twitter, and it's not entirely clear whether it actually is Offset...
It's also a very adult clip and super NSFW, so be careful watching it and judge for yourself:
Hmmm... call us skeptical on that, because it sure doesn't seem like it's Offset???? Could be anyone. Too tough to tell, not good enough picture quality!!!
Poor Cardi B getting dragged through these salacious rumors!!!
It hasn't stopped people from commenting on it, at least (below):
Smdh @ Offset.... BE BETTER, DO BETTER

And then, of course, there's Maury Povich with the best tweet about it all (below):
What do y'all think?!
Is Offset STILL cheating, or is this all much ado about nothing this time???
Let us know in the comments (below)!!!

There are only a handful of things I know for certain in this world. The song “All the Young Dudes” by Mott the Hoople is about paperboys, and FOX’s All-Stars Party brings…
If you're familiar with Catelynn and Tyler from Teen Mom OG, then you probably know that they've had plenty of experience with addiction.
They've never gone through it themselves -- though Catelynn has hinted at being dependent on marijuana in the past, and they were arrested in their teen years for possessing weed.
But unfortunately, they spent much of their childhoods watching their parents go down that dark, scary road.
Catelynn's mother, April, has struggled with alcoholism, and Tyler's father, Butch, once admitted on camera that he loved cocaine more than he loved his own son.
Thankfully, April is sober these days, and she's been able to play a much more positive role in Catelynn's life.
But Butch just hasn't been able to maintain his own sobriety for any real length of time.
As we saw in earlier seasons of the show, he was released from prison just before Catelynn and Tyler got married, and he was out for just over a year.
Then, in late 2016, he relapsed, violated his probation, and was sent back.
He was released after a few months, but, as always, it's hard for him to stay out of trouble.
Tyler really delves deep into that struggle in this heart-wrenching sneak peek for next week's episode of Teen Mom OG.
As the clip begins, the couple explains to a producer that they're still working on fixing up their new house, and that Butch is building a fence for them.
"Apparently he destroyed my childhood," Tyler jokes. "I need a fence. That's all I ask of you now."
He's joking, at least a little bit, but there's some sad truth behind it -- we'll never forget his story of how he was so overwhelmed with everything that he attempted to hang himself when he was just 12 years old.
"Speaking of which," he adds now, "I need to talk to him about going to rehab."
Catelynn points out that he'd said before that he wanted to wait to have the rehab talk with Butch until he was less angry with him, and he says that he's realized that he's actually always going to be angry with him.
She agrees with him -- she says that with her own mother, she feels angry a lot too, and she feels that it's that way with many children of addicts.
She even says that children of addicts have a right to feel angry with their parents, which is fair.
They they have this whole sweet talk about how they created a safe space together, so on and so forth, and that's adorable and precious, it really is.
But does Butch ever go to rehab?!
Watch the video below to hear Cate and Tyler's real talk on addiction:

Travis Scott has done it at last.
He has spoken out on the baby Kylie Jenner is allegedly expecting as a result of the rapper and the reality star having had unprotected sex about six or seven months ago.
But did Scott actually say anything of substance?
Did he reveal his baby mama's due date? Or the gender of the impending child? Or verify his relationship with Kylie is still going strong?
Or, heck, even acknowledge the 20-year old is pregnant?!?
Simply put: no, no, no and no.
“I don’t want to talk about that. They’re just guesses. Let them keep fishing,” Scott told Billboard this week when asked about becoming a father.
Doesn't exactly sound like someone excited to welcome a new life into the world, does it?
Yes, the celebrity gossip community is "fishing" for information on Kylie's pregnancy.
But this just means various rumors are floating around; from wondering whether Jenner is Kim Kardashian's surrogate...to whether she contemplated an abortion... to whether she's actually already had the baby.
You would think Scott or Jenner would want to clear this chatter up. To set the record straight.
For whatever reason, they are remaining totally mum on the topic instead.
Is this their right? Absolutely.
Does it make us sound hypocritical, that we're so often mocking Kylie for being too open with her life... and now we're giving her a hard time for staying private?
Pregnancy is a HUGE deal!
With so many outlets having confirmed this news, no one is wondering any longer whether Kylie will have a baby this spring.
Instead, her silence has simply caused us to wonder just why she's being silent.
She could release a brief statement and then go into hiding if she so desired.
But is she simply embarrassed by her baby bump? Could she be considering adoption for the child and then pretending that she never even had it?
No one knows.
No one even knows if Scott and Jenner are still together or if they broke up over Christmas, as has been bantered about.
For his part, Scott admitted to Billboard that he sees Kanye West "everyday," but claimed the two never really talk about romance or parenthood.
He started dating Jenner in early 2017 and she's supposedly due in February or March.
This would mean Kylie got pregnant just a couple months into the relationship, which makes us believe it was an accident.
This doesn't mean Jenner won't love her daughter or that everything won't turn our great in the end.
But it would explain the awkwardness at play here; Scott is just 25, Kylie is just 20 - and both are focused on their careers.
We somehow doubt they really want a baby right now.
But she's coming, guys. Pretty soon, in fact.
So you better embrace that fact, get used to talking about it...and prepare to shower that child with all the love in your heart.
If you are like most car enthusiast or have ever dreamt of a certain car you would like to own one day, you are bound to have seen a commercial, at the very least, for one of the better car shows on cable. Some of you get to see the occasional episode when the wife is busy for a while, and the lucky few get to binge-watch every episode they can get their hands on.
With that said, there are many men and women, too, believe it or not, that can hold their own in a discussion about the world’s best sports cars, the classics, and automobile modifications thanks to the automotive experts on these shows. Let’s take a moment to get to know them and the shows they have made popular.
Mr. Koker was born January 5, 1964. As a young man in Cleveland, Ohio, Danny’s father was an executive for the Ford motor company. His father’s love for automotive knowledge led him to purchase a motorcycle for Danny at the age of 8 years old. As 8 year old boys will, Danny spent his days teaching himself how to take it apart and put it back together.
As he did, his affinity with mechanics took off. Over the years it gradually became his favorite hobby. This celebrity claims to own about 60 cars and 80 motorcycles. On August 13, 2012, Counting Cars, a reality tv show in which Danny stars debuted in the slot after Pawn Stars. It is the third spin off from Pawn Stars and is what most people know Danny for. For seven seasons, now, he and his crew have spent their days restoring and customizing classic rides.
Each show opens as follows: “Vegas is a gambling town. Most people bet with chips. I bet with rides. And I always go all in. I’m Danny, a.k.a. the Count and this is my all-star team. We find ’em, fix ’em, flip ’em and sometimes, I keep ’em. For my crew, every job is high stakes, and we can’t afford to lose. This is Counting Cars.”
Jeremy, Richard, and James
If you love anything on wheels with over 500 hp, then you are already well acquainted with Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May. Famous for their involvement in the show, Top Gear, they have spent the past 16 years teaching us everything we ever wanted to know about the world’s best sports cars.
They have also shown us why some cars should have never made it out of the drawing room. If anyone could tell you the best alignment and suspension combination for a Mclaren P1, it would be them. Born in 1960, 1969, and 1963 respectively, all these gentlemen got their start as local English journalists.
Each man joined the show at different times, with Jeremy Clarkson being the first in 1988 in the original layout for the show. Over the years, the spunky tongue-in-cheek humor and the bonds developed in world travel have taught us to love and respect the ingenuity behind past and modern mechanics.
Richard Ray Rawlings was born in Fort Worth, TX March 30, 1969. As a young boy, Richard’s father took him to a ton of car shows and father/son time was spent constructing cars. At 14, Mr. Rawlings bought his first car.
Over the next several years, he spent time as a paramedic and a firefighter and had a eventful couple of bouts with love. In 2002, this budding entrepreneur opened Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, TX. This shop is all about creating custom built automobiles for customers worldwide.
In 2012, the Discovery Channel took interest in the concept and now follows the daily routine of the shop on the show we know as Fast N’ Loud. Richard’s arrogantly comedic personality along with some of the most knowledgeable mechanics in the United States make this show worth watching for hours on end.
As you might have noticed, the 60’s were a great decade for the automobile and apparently for creating gifted mechanics, as well.
Celebrities have long been photographed next to their extravagant swimming pools and large homes. Showing off the finer things is a way of life for the rich and famous. Parties, meetings, and simple relaxation are the driving forces behind many Hollywood pool designs.
If you are looking for some inspirations from some of the most beautiful pool area designs on the planet, there is no need to look far. Take a peek at these breathtaking settings, and see which celebrity swimming pool tickles your design fancy.
Tom Brady’s home in Los Angeles
Tom Brady’s swimming pool is not only gigantic, it is an infinity pool. Sitting on the edge of the hills in LA, the pool overlooks the city, with views of the Atlantic Ocean in the distance.
The pool features a 20 ft dock that extends into the water, offering an island of dry respite while you are enjoying the sights. It is clear that this celebrity dwelling was built with no concern cost.
Marc Anthony’s Compound in the Dominican Republic
Marc Anthony spared no expense building his compound in the Dominican Republic. His fabulous swimming area includes several palapa-style guest villas. The villas are built with authenticity in mind, as they feature American pine walls with cane roofs.
The outdoor furnishings are just as lavishly relaxing as the villas. Designed by a local to the Dominican Republic, Dino Barre, the outdoor seating areas are cushioned with Sunbrella fabric.
Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s fabulous home in Malibu
Daniel Busbin takes the credit for the oasis that is Jada and Will’s outdoor swimming area. The freeform design of the pool complements the southwestern architectural style of their home with ease.
The tropical foliage around the area adds a nice compliment to the natural stones worked into the pool’s design. If you are seeking out an Earthy experience, this is the place to go. Although, it is not likely that the Smith’s will invite you to take a dip as the family is very serious about their privacy.
Ricky Carmichael’s home in Florida
Ricky Carmichael’s swimming pool features a sizeable goat statue at the peak of its rocky waterfall. Ricky added the goat as a symbol of his nickname given by motocross fans as the Greatest Of All Time (G.O.A.T.).
The Kardashian’s Miami mansion
You will be surprised the Kardashian sisters ever leave their Miami mansion when you take a peek at their swimming area. The property features a sparkling infinity pool that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. It feels like you could just swim right into the great beyond.
The mansion is literally set right on the coast of Florida. There is no better way to grab a few
