The Best Picture I Saw This Week (8-14 to 8-20-2015)
written by Sam Greenspan

After yet another absurdly busy stretch, here is the Best Picture I Saw This Week...

Second runner up: Why did the kangaroo cross the road?



This picture was posted by a Reddit user in Australia (presumably, or else this becomes a much stranger story). A swole, patient kangaroo standing by the side of the road, seemingly waiting for a break in traffic to pass. And look at that posture! We could all take a lesson.

First runner up: Happy Birthday?



A woman in Scotland was having a cake made for her daughter's 21st birthday and texted the bakery "please put a blonde girl on top." But autocorrect turned "blonde" into "blind" without her realizing. This cake was the result.

The winner!



At my wedding two years ago, it was around 109 degrees during the ceremony. We had one bridesmaid have to leave in the middle to avoid passing out. This bridesmaid -- apparently the groom's sister -- tried to stick it out.
