Filed under: AnglophiliaDogCorgi

The Pembroke Welsh corgi is a vulnerable breed!!

Britain's Kennel Club breeders' association has issued a chilling warning…

The Pembroke Welsh Corgi, favorite of the queen of England, is at risk of disappearing!

The short-legged, yappy doggies have been favored by the British monarchy since the 1930s and now thats all in jeopardy.

The Kennel Club said that there were only 241 Pembroke Welsh Corgis registered in Britain, so few that the breed is now on the "at watch" list, preparing to move to the "vulnerable native breed" list!

The organization said in a statement:

Daniel Radcliffe Listed As The Chosen One On Britain's Richest Young Celebrities!

tumblr mjeaeim9h01rhekkto1 500

We always knew Daniel Radcliffe might have a small fortune in vault 687 in Gringotts Wizarding Bank, but not this much!

DanRad is the Desirable No. 1 among Britain's richest celebrities aged 30 or under, having accrued a net worth of roughly $90 million! Although we're not sure of the conversion rate, that's a lot of Knuts and Sickles!

According to a survey, One Direction actually earned the top billing, earning around $96 million, but split that sum 5 directions amongst their members and Harry Potter has got them beat!

Coming behind them with around $71 million is Robert Pattinson! He could live on that fortune forever, which he might, because he's possibly a vampire! It's a long shot, but we still have our fangers crossed!

Meanwhile, Keira Knightley is worth around $60 million, Emma Watson $45 million, Adele $44 million, and Rubert Grint $39 million!

Rounding out the list is Calvin Harris with around $36 million, Cheryl Cole with $25 million, and Leona Lewis with $23 million! Uh, can this trio just join up together and be the next Peter, Paul & Mary?!

Congrats to everyone on the list!

Only Chris Colfer could make the Downton Abbey castle look even more regal than it already is!

The Glee star is touring Europe to promote his novels Struck By Lightning and The New York Times-bestselling series, The Land of Stories.

Yeah, he acts, sings, dances, takes perfect postcard photos, AND writes.

We'd hate him except we LUV him!!!

In between book signings in the U.K. and France, he's squeezed in a bike-by of Buckingham Palace, Stonehenge, Versailles, and the Arc de Triomphe.

The only thing we’re sure he’d change: he’d bring US along next time!!! LOLz!

Ch-ch-check out more photos from his European vacation (below).

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueHorses

How horrifying is this?!?

On Wednesday, 10 million burger patties packed with HORSEMEAT were recalled from Irish and British supermarkets, and although the meat is said to not cause any harm — there's no reason why beef should contain horsemeat.

After the Food Safety Authority of Ireland tested the patties' DNA, traces of My Little Pony horsemeat was found in over a third of the grub.

And now, according to Ireland's Prime Minister Enda Kenny:
