23 Animals Relaxing With Cool Summer Treats

Original image

All across the country, people are hot and miserable. Perhaps this collection of adorable animals cooling off with icy snacks will help.

Monkeys

Swoyambhunath of Nepal is nicknamed “The Monkey Temple” for the sacred monkeys that live inside the complex. Flickr user lavenderstreak was able to capture these pampered primates in this delightful picture.

Flickr user Sudar Muthu was able to hand-feed ice cream to this adorable little guy during a trip to Eravikulam, Rajmalal National Park in India.

Tigers

Just because cats, including tigers, can’t taste sweet stuff doesn’t mean they should be left out in this critter Popsicle party. Instead, they just need meat pops, like the one given to the tigers at the Sydney Zoo, as featured in this photo by Flickr user shutupyourface.

Bears

I’m not sure what kinds of fruits and nuts are in this bear’s treat, but he sure seems to like it. Flickr user Tambako The Jaguar caught this fun shot at the Tierpark Arth Goldau.

Lions

That’s right, lions, tigers and bears all enjoy cooling down with ice pops. This little guy was also shot at the Tierpark Arth Goldau by Flickr user Tambako The Jaguar. Like the tigers, lions also can’t taste sweets, so they have to satiate themselves with blood-filled treats.

Lemurs

Somehow this lemur got a hold of this ice cream cone just in time for Flickr user Ken McChesney to capture this great pic at the Edinburgh Zoo.

Pandas

As the blog title says, Pandas Love to Party.

Anteaters

Flickr user TamanduaGirl likes to reward her pet anteater, Pua, with a cool yogurt and strawberry parfait.

Kittens

Cute Overload reader Maria F.’s kitty likes to cool down with a few licks off of some delicious Häagen-Dazs bars. She says he doesn’t eat any of the chocolate, which is bad for kittens, but enjoys the creamy cool ice cream.

Snape here belongs to Flickr user Bridget Samuels. That’s a lot of ice cream for one little kitty.

This kitty not only has an adorable face while he enjoys his strawberry ice pop, he also has one of the best pet names ever—Circus McGircus. His owner, Cute Overload reader Whitney S., has some great taste in pet names.

Little Lucky is simply obsessed with this ice cream cone. I love how he doesn’t stop licking throughout the video.

Puppies

If all Hawaiian dogs celebrate their birthdays the way Takota does, then we’d better not let our mainland pooches know. We’ll have a mutiny on our hands.

I don’t know the name of this adorable chihuahua shot by Flickr user boubou1, but he certainly knows how to celebrate Canada Day in style.

Birdies

Flickr user flashb1t shot this cute gray parrot while he was munching on ice cream on a bike’s handlebars while his owner took a break from riding around town.

Gray parrots aren’t the only birds who enjoy ice cream. Flickr user billypalooza caught this cute peacock enjoying a sweet treat at the Denver Zoo.

Mice

Flickr user Radagast had a great trick to get her late pet mouse Meryl to take medicine—mix it in with ice cream.

Bunnies

It’s bad for bunnies to eat dairy products, but frozen raspberry puree is a great way for little Frankie to cool down on a hot day.

Flickr user rockamandy’s bunny Fry also enjoys the cooler things in life.

Wallabies

Wallabies aren’t big on ice cream, but they simply love the cones, particularly when they’re filled with tasty grains, as you can see in this cute picture by Flickr user Karen Hull.

Llamas

Like wallabies, llamas love getting pellet treats served inside of ice cream cones as Flickr user Just Us 3 shows.

I’m ready to go grab a Fudgesicle. Do you guys ever give your critters icy treats when it’s hot outside?

These $425 Jeans Can Turn Into Jorts

Opening Ceremony

Modular clothing used to consist of something simple, like a reversible jacket. Today, it’s a $425 pair of detachable jeans.

Apparel retailer Opening Ceremony recently debuted a pair of “2 in 1 Y/Project” trousers that look fairly peculiar. The legs are held to the crotch by a pair of loops, creating a disjointed C-3PO effect. Undo the loops and you can now remove the legs entirely, leaving a pair of jean shorts in their wake. The result goes from this:

To this:

Opening Ceremony

The company also offers a slightly different cut with button tabs in black for $460. If these aren’t audacious enough for you, the Y/Project line includes jumpsuits with removable legs and garter-equipped jeans.

This First-Grade Math Problem Is Stumping the Internet
May 17, 2017

If you’ve ever fantasized about how much easier life would be if you could go back to elementary school, this math problem may give you second thoughts. The question first appeared on a web forum, Mashable reports, and after recently resurfacing, it’s been perplexing adults across social media.

According to the original poster AlmondShell, the bonus question was given to primary one, or first grade students, in Singapore. It instructs readers to “study the number pattern” and “fill in the missing numbers.” The puzzle, which comprises five numbers and four empty circles waiting to be filled in, comes with no further explanation.

Some forum members commented with their best guesses, while others expressed disbelief that this was a question on a kid’s exam. Commenter karrotguy illustrates one possible answer: Instead of looking for complex math equations, they saw that the figure in the middle circle (three) equals the amount of double-digit numbers in the surrounding quadrants (18, 10, 12). They filled out the puzzle accordingly.

A similar problem can be found on the blog of math enthusiast G.R. Burgin. His solution, which uses simple algebra, gets a little more complicated.

The math tests given to 6- and 7-year-olds in other parts of the world aren’t much easier. If your brain isn’t too worn out after the last one, check out this maddening problem involving trains assigned to students in the UK.
