In an effort to better represent a broader range of personalities, Facebook recently released five new badges for group members to display next to their profiles. "When we first introduced the badge system, we knew that it would be a fun way to reward users for their frequent engagement within the communities that they enjoy," said a spokesperson from Facebook. "But we also quickly found out that there were many many more labels that admins wanted to give their members." The new badges are set to be implemented November 2nd with the "Worst Memes" and "Probably Racist" badges expected to be the most used out of the bunch.

It’s been four months since the crowdfunding website JumpKick made a splash into the already competitive online fundraising market, and so far the company has managed to successfully fund countless projects, causes, and personal indulgences.

“Business is booming,” said a spokesperson from JumpKick. “People doubted that a new competitor could break into an industry that’s already dominated by the big three, but we’ve managed to prove that there’s room for more competition in the selfless charity field.

The big three referred to are of course: GoFundMe, Kickstarter, and Indiegogo, all of which continue to hold a tight grip on a market that brings in billions each year.

“They’re getting cocky because they managed to fund a few cancer campaigns and nonprofits,” said GoFundMe CEO Tim Cadogan in a recent interview about JumpKick’s early success. “But look, I’ve been in this business for a long time. You can’t just tout that you raised triple the amount asked for some dipshit’s card game and call it a day. It’s a long, hard road to the top, and you have to pay your dues if you want to play with us big guys.”

But the people at JumpKick don’t seem to be too concerned about this remark given their recent social media activity, posting on Instagram a screenshot of their Facebook page when it hit 500 likes with the caption, “Next stop: Fortune 500.”

Netflix finally met your demands! Every single episode of NBC’s The Office (except ‘Scott’s Tots’) has been removed!

Responding to a weeks-long viral internet campaign, Netflix made the incredible, swift decision to have every single episode of The Office (save Episode 12 of Season 6: ‘Scott’s Tots’) taken down from the streaming service. ‘Scott’s Tots’ now resides within Netflix’s Short Film category, an esteemed collection of the very best modern art has to offer.

“We were very glad to see such adoration for ‘Scott’s Tots’,” says Netflix producer Kim Laure. “It’s a landmark 22-minute film. To remove ‘Scott’s Tots’ would be like smashing the Statue of David. Drawing on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. No one at Netflix could even stomach the thought of it being scrubbed forever. We have a responsibility to humankind.”

Jam Holpurt (“Office Fan” and art critic) reports: “I despise absolutely every episode of The Office, besides ‘Scott’s Tots’ of course. There’s something about ‘Scott’s Tots’ that transcends even the audio/visual medium it resides in. You could make a 201-episode series where every episode is just ‘Scott’s Tots’, again and again and again. That show would be a masterpiece.”

‘Scott’s Tots’ (2009) is now available to watch on Netflix.
