His Cat Was Sitting By A Lamp…And He Never Expected What Happened Next

Having an animal companion is a wonderful part of life.

They give you companionship, entertainment, love…and, sometimes, they help you out around the house. Service animals are trained to help their human friends. This cat, however, just naturally lent a paw to her owner.

Just wait ’til he touches her nose!

Cat on…cat off…the catter!

This may be the world’s most helpful cat.

This Couple Transformed An Old Play Room Into A Gaming Room Of Epic Proportions

As kids grow up, their needs change.

They grow out of clothes, go to different schools, and eventually end up liking new and different toys. For these boys, they were too old for a traditional “play room.”

That’s why their mom decided to convert that old play room into something epic (with a little help from dad, too).

Rorie, also know as Reddit user rdlizenby, drew up some simple plans and got to work.

She started off by putting some new paint up on the walls.

Pretty soon, it was obvious what that big gray blob was going to be.

(And it was going to be awesome.)

A cut-out of the Nintendo D-pad was created, too, instead of just painting it on.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251602_56eb96064f775”, auid: “537251602” });

(Nostalgia levels intensifying.)

To keep the area organized, she put the cords in a 1.5″ diameter cord sheathing.

The entertainment center was purchased from Overstock…but adjustments were soon made to the piece.

It was advertised as a lowboard.

She added a faux bottom to it, blocked it off, and painted the main areas to look like the original Nintendo console.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251604_56eb96064f8f0”, auid: “537251604” });

PERFECT (complete with labels).

Admiring her amazing handiwork (as she should).

Now…it’s time to get gaming!

You can view Rorie’s original post here on Reddit, inspiring hundreds of others to finally put their extra rooms in the house to good use.

No longer need a nursery? Bored with your living room? Tired of looking at a dining room you don’t use? Make a game room!

This Is What Happens When Someone Cheats…And It Goes Very, Very Badly

Whether or not you believe that monogamous relationships work, one thing is certain: if you are in a relationship, you need to respect the other person and be honest. Your spouse, partner, or polygamous set of wives deserve that much.

So when someone cheats — and when that someone gets caught — it’s no surprise there is a lot of hurt. And when there’s a lot of hurt, some pretty nasty things can happen…

Although, these people had it coming.

1. Finally, the neighborhood had something to talk about.

2. Mrs. Liar found these condoms left behind and decided to leave a little note.

3. Yeaaaaahhhhhhh, you might want to stay away from relatives.

4. She took passive-aggressive, murderous rage to a whole new level. BRAVO.

5. Is this just mean…or attempted murder?

6. Good luck looking your neighbors in the face, lady.

7. Judging by the state of his car, I’m assuming it wasn’t.

8. This reaction is almost as alarming as the cheating itself.

9. That’s a fair question…

Although her face will be SO red if it’s just his accountant.

10. At least she put his stuff out on the lawn AND left an explanation.

11. Oh…that hurts.

But at least he got Aaron Paul’s attention!

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251604_56691647a6566”, auid: “537251604” });

12. And now she’s probably dating that dude next to her. BOOM.

13. “My friend got caught cheating recently…”

Why do they always favor black spray paint?

14. He found this under his toilet seat…his girlfriend apparently had a friend over.

15. Don’t cheat on someone who isn’t afraid to blow your belongings to smithereens.

16. This wife was caught sexting another man at a baseball game. A kind witness decided to fill the husband in on the shenanigans.

17. Judging by the screen cracks, her reputation isn’t the only thing he destroyed.

18. Take THAT, shoe lover!

19. Ohhhhhhhhh snap. Shots fired.

20. Billboard revenge = always classic.

21. Once again, don’t cheat on someone with access to that many pickaxes.

22. Aww, what a sweet welcome sign!

23. …Honestly, there’s no proof that Scott cheated. This is just mean.

Fail Blog

24. At least they avoided using spray paint to shame her.

25. Oh snap…if that doesn’t get the house off the market, what will/

26. NOT THE BOAT!

27. Tasteful…yet alarming!

28. If you cheat on your partner, NEVER let them tattoo a part of you that you can’t see. That’s just common sense.

29. She can’t write worth a damn, but you still have to respect this ballsy strategy.

30. Oh, Davey Boy…

31. Wow, what a postscript BURN.

Lesson. Learned.

How many of these amazing performances did you remember?

American Idol airs on Fox on Wednesdays at 8/7c.

It might feel a little different from when the show first aired in 2002, but there are bound to be more incredible moments as the American Idol journey comes to an end.
