Aretha Franklin Fractures Toe On Tour

Aretha Franklin injures toe

Ouchies!

While on tour to promote her latest album, Falling Out Of Love, Aretha Franklin made an unscheduled pit stop at Community North Hospital in Indianapolis to x-ray her toe injured in an accident on Friday.

The Queen of Soul tripped over her Jimmy Choo spiked heels in her hotel suite and felt a sharp pain in her left index toe.

She says it "hurt like heck for a minute, but seemed to subside." However, x-rays a few days later revealed a fracture in the toe!

We're so sorry to hear that, but it sounds like things could have been worse for the music legend who said, "I'm so grateful it wasn't my right piano [pedal] foot."

She still has other problems on her mind though. As she was gearing up for a performance in Virginia on Tuesday night, she joked:

"How am I supposed to match my new Marc Jacobs gown with this wooden blue hospital shoe?"

We're glad that's ALL she's worrying about, especially after her mysterious health scare last year, which required serious surgery!

Good luck at the show, Aretha! We're sure you'll find some way to stylishly rock that wooden blue hospital shoe!

So cute… and yet, so sexy.

This is right up there with the firefighter giving oxygen to a kitten!

Gisele Bundchen‘s hot hubby Tom Brady had some fun in the park Thursday with his dog Lua.

However, Tom was being paid to have fun.

The NFL player was shooting a commercial for UGG’s boots, which will be the footwear brand’s first commercial in the United States geared towards men.

Brady was using a unique camera called a huge boner Snorri Body Cam to shoot POV scenes of himself playing with his dog in the park while wearing the new Rockville boot for the campaign which will be called The Man Under the Helmet.

Q & A With Our Very Own Dog Trainer

Filed under: TrainingDogTipsInger Martens

Inger the Dog Trainer

This week we have a question from a reader for celebrity dog trainer, Inger Martens about a destructive german shepherd.

Question:

For the most part, my year and a half german shephard is a good dog. However, she has a couple of problem habits that lead her to be not trust worthy while we are at work or sleeping, having to be in a kennel.

My dog will go for a significant stretch of time (2week+) with no incident, then she will suddenly chew up a shoe she managed to get a hold of, or the corner of a large pillow on the couch. She once got a hold of a leather leash that was dangling from the coat rack a bit too low and literally shredded it.

I give her the large dog rawhide bones to chew on, but sometimes she will ignore the rawhide and destroy something else. Recently it was a couch cushion while we were sleeping.

I can try to remove shoes, leashes, pillows, etc from a room but I can't put her in a room with no couches,etc, so I need a way to correct the behavior when rawhide just isn't cutting it?

How can I try to correct this behavior?

Here's Inger's Paws for a Minute™ quick tip:

Chewing is a function of a dog NOT a behavior.

What they chew on overtime becomes the behavior. Get it?

Part of the problem is that often owners don't correct the behavior. So, you need to calmly go over to her and put the leash on and guide her over to the chewed item. Now you can show her and say no!

The leash helps you guide her over to the chewed item and helps her not to have a misunderstanding by being able to run away. What you are saying no to is her saliva on and the scent of the chewed item.

Dogs sense of smell is crazy strong, what your saying no to is the pillow or whatever else. Remember, the reprimand has to have a positive ending. After saying no, walk her over to the chew bone and say o.k (in a really happy voice) then take off the leash. You might want to try bully sticks as an alternative chew bone. Dog's LOVE them.

They're kind of pricey but they rock!

all my best,
Inger

Shrek Allegedly Based On Real Man

Shrek Allegedly Based On Real Man

Wow!

Maurice Tillet was a French man born with a rare disorder called acromegaly, which causes abnormal bone growth. Despite his physical differences, Tillet went on to do great things, including learn 14 languages and become a professional wrestler.

Casts were made of his head before he died, and because of the physical similarities and story arch (both he and Shrek overcame their differences to do great things), many people suspect that Shrek was modeled after Tillet.

We think this is legit! Tweet us UR thoughts!

"Thunder Thighs" The Dinosaur

Filed under: FunnyDinosaur

thuder thighs the dino

Yeah - WE SAID IT!!!

A newfound dinosaur species that use its thighs to kick predators likely had a bad temper to boot!

The 46-foot-long Brontomerus mcintoshi had an immense blade on its hipbones where strong muscles would have attached, according to a new study.

Brontomerus—"thunder thighs" in Greek—may have even attacked like a modern-day chicken, relentlessly kicking and stomping pursuers to death.

The team suspects the dinosaur—a type of sauropod, or plant-eating, four-legged lumberer—used its massive legs to either maneuver over hilly ground or deliver "good, hard" kicks to predators.

Wedel, assistant professor of anatomy at Western University of Health Sciences said,

"I could only imagine how ill-tempered these sauropods would have been. You've got a little brain, you're permanently paranoid about all these meat-eaters around, and you're trying to protect your young."

Sounds like humans and dinos are more closely related than we thought….

Biggest Bear Ever!

Filed under: Science!BearDiscoveryAmazingPolar Bear

Biggest bear ever

After re-examining a bear skeleton, found in Buenos Aires Province, Argentina, in 1935 paleontologists have discovered the largest bear to ever walk the earth to date!

The prehistoric South American giant short-faced bear, standing 11 feet tall, existed 2 million years ago and weighed up to 3,500 pounds.

Holy shiz! That's ginormous!

The team behind the discovery calculated the animals size after measuring its almost elephant-size humerus, or upper arm bone.

Compared to other carnivores in its time period, "there's nothing else that even comes close" and was the largest and most powerful meat-eater on land at the time.

Up until this discovery, the previous heavyweight champ was a North American giant short-faced bear—a related extinct species—that weighed up to 2,500 pounds.

As far as modern bears go, the largest on record was a 2,200-pound polar bear shot in Alaska in the 19th century.

Imagine running into that bad boy?

We'll pass!
