Belgian Children’s Choir Starts ‘Bullying’ in a Mall (Video)

Belgian Children's Choir Starts 'Bullying' in a MallBelgian Children's Choir Starts 'Bullying' in a Mall

A children’s choir shocked visitors at a shopping mall in Ghent, Belgium, by singing altered lyrics of popular Christmas carols. It was bad enough that some mothers covered the ears of their children.

Don’t worry, it was a stunt pulled by advertising agency Duval Guillaume Modem for  ‘De Opvoedingslijn’, a Flemish advice hotline for parents with out of control kids.

Youtube comments suggest that the actual Flemish lyrics are much worse than the English translation would let you believe.

6 Quiet Activities Your Children Can Do At The Cemetery While Youre Fantasizing About Your Dream Grave

Lets be honest: Sometimes you just want to daydream about your ideal tomb in peace without your kids yapping away in the background. Here are some quiet cemetery activities thatll keep your little ones occupied so you can fantasize about your eternal resting place without interruption.

1. Have them trace epitaphs onto printer paper: This is a great way to win yourself a little quiet time to dream about the stately, gleaming mausoleum in which youd one day like to stow your corpse. Your kids will have a blast rubbing their pencils over the grooved words of remembrance, freeing you to ponder the important stuff, like should the pink kershaw granite walls of your sepulcher be inlaid with precious stones or gold-leaf latticework? And should your eight-ton red granite sarcophagus be carved in your likeness, or should you go with something more like that funky Moabite she-goddess design youve been drooling over? Decisions, decisions!

2. Have them find the tombstones of the person who lived the longest and the person who lived the shortest: Can they find someone who was over 100? How about a child who was younger than three? Once you issue the challenge, your kids will spend hours running up and down the rows of tombstones calculating life spans, leaving you alone to fantasize about eternity in your fairytale burial vault, with the lush velvet carpeting of its mourning chamber awash in amber light from the stained glass and the 30-meter-high walls gently echoing Debussys Clair de Lune from an antique music box playing on infinite loop. Simply thinking about your decayed remains in such a fabulous crypt makes your heart flutter with excitement!

3. Have them gather up dead flowers and make leis out of them: You can buy yourself a good hour or two to contemplate the specifics of your fantasy tombs magnificent stone facade by having your kids do a fun and easy craft like this one. While theyre twisting wilted bouquets into festive Hawaiian adornments, you can finally pin down whether you want gargoyle statues looking down over your graves colossal wrought-iron gate or something a little more personal, like sculptures of all your childhood dogs. Both choices would look sublime in the twilit glow of the dual eternal flames perched atop the Grecian portico, and both would handsomely complement the marble bust of you as a centaur that commandeers the entryway.

4. Have them search the ground for any teeth that might have risen to the surface of the soil: Do dead peoples teeth actually come up through the dirt in cemeteries? Probably not, but your kids dont know that. Just send them off to comb the grounds for loose incisors, and then find a nice shady place to close your eyes and dwell on your dream mausoleums spectacular bronze dome, flanked by four gilded finials and overlooking a bucolic, tree-lined reflection pond. Whose tomb is this? you imagine passersby one day asking. Cyrus the Great? The daughter of a pharaoh? Just the thought of it makes you feel like royalty.

5. Have them say a short prayer at every grave: Teaching your children to show respect for those who have left us AND getting some alone time to dream about palatial digs for your rotting cadaver? Talk about a win-win! And remember: The bigger the graveyard you go to, the more time youll have by yourself to plan out the sprawling network of catacombs that will one day inter your lifeless, desiccated body.

6. Have them fantasize about their own dream graves: Its not just adults who love fantasizing about their ideal graves, your children will love it, too. Give your kids some colored pencils and have them draw how they would like to one day be entombed. Encourage them to design a casket that resembles something important to them, like an army tank or the Stanley Cup. Perhaps they want a crypt that looks like SpongeBobs house or the ice castle from Frozen. Maybe theyd like their best friend from school sealed in the vault with them so they can play for all eternity. The skys the limit, and who knows, maybe theyll even give you some ideas for your own dream grave!

Brave Police Officer Saves 3-Year-Old Girl’s Life On The Day Of His Wedding

A cops desire for donutson the morning of his wedding day ended up turning him into a localhero of sorts.

Indiana University Policeofficer John ORourke successfully got married on March 28, 2017, but not before taking the time to save a young girls life just hours earlier that day.

ORourke was off-duty,patiently waiting for some sugary fuel at the Donuts to Go bakery in Sanford, Florida, when the incident took place.

Twitter

As he stood in line, he noticed people beginning toswarm around a 3-year-old little girlwhod lost consciousness after having a seizure.

ORourke stepped up to the platealmost immediatelyto savethe day.

First, he instructedone of the other customers in the shop to call 911, so hecouldinform an emergency dispatcher of the status of the situation. Then, he proceeded to perform CPR on the young girl to eventually reviveher.

Her eyes opened just in time with paramedics arrival at thedonut shop.

Once the girl was back in good spirits with EMTs, employees of Donuts to Go thanked ORourkefor his heroics and gifted him with a free box of donuts (as an early wedding present, I guess) before he departed.

It had to be a donut shop,said ORourke, who can be found regularly onIndiana UniversityPurdue University Indianapolisscampus, in a Facebook post. You cant make this up.

He added, I just sat in my car, for about 20 minutes, processing everything.

ORourke then continued on with his day, meeting wife-to-be Virginia down the aisle and tying the knot as planned later that evening.

Buddies from the Florida Highway Patrol, who attendedthe wedding, caught wind of the story and werent the least bit surprised. They said ORourke had a knack for beingat the right place at the right (or wrong) time.

It seemslike Johns morning pastry craving paid off for that little girl.

And itll certainly be a wedding day to remember!

9 Kids In Our Homeroom Who Definitely Get High


These kids are totally always stoned. Everyone knows it.

1. Will Hastings

His hair is a lot longer than last year, and his eyes are always so red.

2. Greg Mokate

He skateboards and plays bass in Trevor’s band. If Greg doesn’t get high, I don’t know who does.

3. Elise Vandernat

She got that tongue ring last year. No way she hasn’t moved on to drugs already.

4. Luke Douglas

Everyone knows this kid is totally hilarious. There’s no way he comes up with that stuff sober.

5. Alison Nguyen

She used to date Brandon, so…

6. Eddy Blass

He may get straight A’s, but Jess Werther says he sold a joint to Kelli Pratt for junior prom, and she’s usually right about this kind of stuff.

7. Rain Jenkins-Gutierrez

Her name’s Rain. Come on.

8. Mr. Epstein

He’s not technically a kid, but there’s no way this guy doesn’t toke up when he’s off the clock.

9. Louis Peters

Haha. There’s no way Louis actually smokes, but can you imagine if he did? We would totally pay money to see that.
