The Truth About Momo, the Latest Viral Youtube Hoax

YouTube | Unexplained Mysteries

I’m sure you’ve seen a lot of the image below, of the creepy character named Momo, who is apparently instructing children to kill themselves in YouTube videos, and on various apps.

When you look at “Momo”, it’s easy to see why people might immediately become worried about the kind of influence she might have on their children, and what she might cause them to do.

However, the real villains behind this mask are internet users, who are using this as an opportunity to spread needless panic – which includes innocent folk who have been pulled along in the resulting chaos.  We’ll explain how.

Momo, the Latest Twisted Internet Hoax

The Origin of Momo

The now famous image of Momo isn’t what you might expect.  Her real name is Mother Bird, and she is a harpy sculpture that was created by a Japanese company called Link Factory, and she was showcased in 2016 at a Tokyo fetish museum.

She first made an appearance on an Instagram account, also in 2016, that was also based in Japan.  The hoax surrounding “Momo” actually made rounds back in 2018, but quickly fizzed out, only to resurface again over this past week.

Rumors With No Basis

You’ve also most likely heard the rumors of children who supposedly committed suicide as a result of this hoax – usually as a result of interacting with “Momo” via WhatsApp, but reports have indicated that most of these stories aren’t actually true.

It has been found that it isn’t Momo herself isn’t the biggest issue – it is the viral nature of internet challenges that result in unnecessary panic, that results in even more exposure.  People jump to conclusions without bothering to fact check.

If you’re worried about your own child succumbing to similar, the best thing you can do is sit down and talk to them about internet safety, and to monitor what they have access to online.

Nike Shoe Literally Detonates During Basketball Game – We’ve Got the Explosive Details

Nike is no stranger when it comes to Zion Williamson’s Duke University basketball team.  They’ve long been outfitting the players since 1993!  Considering that Duke was taking on current front-runner North Carolina this week, Nike was probably ecstatic to have their name associated with this team.

However, things didn’t go as planned on Wednesday night, when the Nike shoes that Williamson was wearing resulted in a knee injury.  How did this happen?  The shoes very literally exploded when he planted his left foot to pivot.

Fox News | Duke University

Zion’s Shoe:  Destroyed

If you’re feeling bummed that you may have missed seeing what a blast this must have been for Williamson, SportsCenter thankfully has a clip from the moment it happened.

A view from another angle:

Fans were very quick to respond to this event online, in shared amazement that a single shoe could take out 285-pound Williamson.

Official Statement From Nike About the Incident

The Washington Post reached out to Nike, and this statement was provided via email about the incident:

“We are obviously concerned and want to wish Zion a speedy recovery,” a Nike spokesman told The Post in a statement via email. “The quality and performance of our products are of utmost importance.

“While this is an isolated occurrence, we are working to identify the issue.”

In case it isn’t obvious, it might take a while for Nike to regain trust from some professional teams.  With everything that is taken into account during a game, having your shoe explode shouldn’t be one of them.


Adorable Street Cats Living Underground Captured by Japanese Photographer

Imagine taking a stroll down the street and seeing a cat’s head pop up out of a drain pipe hole!  I’m sure you’d be both perplexed and amused all at the same time, and it’d be pretty hard to not have a smile cross your face.

That is exactly the sentiment that Japanese photographer Nyankichi Rojiupa captures in a series of photos he recently shot.   These photos perfectly portray the lives of the street cats who call those holes their home.

Sleepy Mother Doesn’t Hold Back in Poem About Unhelpful Husband


Everyone knows that a newborn babe brings many sleepless nights, and often the mother is the one keeping watch over the baby at that time.

The mother in this story, Caroline Olling Anderson, decided to spend those long dark hours writing a very honest poem about her husband.

Mother Writes Poem About Unhelpful Husband


She posted her poem on Facebook last week, and it certainly generated a great deal of attention from those in the same boat.

Daddy’s Asleep

Caroline Olling Andersen

“My latest 4 a.m. poem”

“I love your daddy, I really do,
After all, without daddy, I wouldn’t have you.
But from midnight till sunrise, it’s just you and I.
And as each hour passes, I’m not gonna lie:
Mommy’s love slowly fades, becomes angry and weak,
Because no matter what, your dad is f*cking asleep!

It all starts out lovely. We kiss each other goodnight.

We look lovingly down at you dear, such a beautiful sight.
An hour later, mommy wakes with a start.
You’re twisting and turning, you’re starting to fart.
You’re gesturing for food. Mommy is there
with a bottle or breast
Daddy is snoring away, the way he knows best.

Mommy burps you, and holds you and rocks you with care.

You spew foul smelling yogurt on mommy’s freshly washed hair.
As mommy changes her shirt, and mops vomit off the floor.
Your daddy farts, rolls over, and continues to snore.

Mommy’s maternal alarm goes off, it’s not even three!
You’re stirring again, you’re hungry and staring at me!
“I think she is hungry” your daddy offers, pulls duvet over his head,
Mommy sends him a death stare and rolls out of bed.
Mommy comes back, tired and drained and what is this I see?

Your daddy has taken over my side, doesn’t give a f*ck about me!

Mommy kicks him and pushes him angrily away.

“What’s up love?” He moans in a lovingly way.
Your daddy has no clue he is under attack.
He wraps his arms around me and kisses my back.
And just as my love for daddy is back on the rise,
You start to coo in your crib and open your eyes.
And daddy gently nudges me to attend to your need.
I give him the finger as I prepare for a feed.

But as the sun starts rising, the slate is wiped clear.

I’m back to full love for your daddy and for you my dear.
I forget that daddy sleeps while you cry and you poo.
It’s back to kissing and hugging and doting on you.

Soon you’ll grow up and be daddy’s little girl.
You’ll not remember me cleaning up sh*t and vomit hurl.
Whilst you sit on his lap and he sings you a song,
You’ll love him and think daddy could do nothing wrong.
But my sweet love, here is a poem for you to keep,
So you know that all those long nights, dad was f*cking asleep.”

Not As Bad As It Seems

Although the poem seems to be placing a lot of blame on the father, that wasn’t this mother’s intent – although her husband wasn’t especially amused when she read it to him the next morning.

The truth is that this particular couple had made a deal while the mother was still pregnant, that she would take the night shift to allow her husband to be well-rested the next day because he spends 10-12 hours teaching young children himself.

Caroline explained that her husband really is a fantastic dad in general, but that those late nights can sometimes cause a little passive-aggressive behavior to come through.  She said that her husband is an amazing primary school teacher who brings a lot of fun and humor both to their relationship, his students, and now towards their new child.


Shocking Facts About Old Hollywood Actors You Won’t Believe!

MGM | The Wizard of Oz

We’ve compiled some of the most incredible facts about Old Hollywood actors that will literally make your jaw drop.  Do you know about any facts that aren’t mentioned here?  Leave them in the comments below!

MGM | The Wizard of Oz

Auntie Em Committed Suicide

As someone who had long suffered from arthritis, actor Clara Blandick who famously played Auntie Em in the Wizard of Oz, simply couldn’t take the pain anymore.  She took the time to do her hair and makeup, put on a nice dress, and then ended her life with an overdose of sleeping pills and a bag tied over her head.

She left a note that said, “I am now about to make the greatest adventure.  I cannot endure this agonizing pain any longer.  It is all over my body…  I pray the Lord, my soul, to take. Amen.”

James Dean and the Dangers of Driving

As you may know, the world lost famous actor James Dean as a result of reckless driving.  What most people may not realize is that just a month before his death, he filmed a public service announcement asking people not to drive recklessly on highways.

Even more eery was this quote from the PSA: “I find myself being very cautious on the highway. Take it easy driving, kids. The life you might save might be mine.”

Shirley Temple Was a Dwarf

Or at least, that was a big rumor at the height (get it, height?) of her popularity. This rumor was so widely believed that the Vatican actually sent someone out to investigate whether it was actually true or not.

No, it wasn’t true.

Something That Should Never, Never Have Happened

You can probably recall the voice of Peter Pan from the Disney film in your head, but there is a really sad story behind it.

Bobby Driscoll, who voiced Peter Pan, died in an abandoned apartment building at the young age of 31, penniless, and his body wasn’t identified until a year after his death.

Montgomery Clift’s Life Was Saved by Elizabeth Taylor

Red River (1948) actor, Montgomery Clift suffered a horrendous vehicle accident, where he almost choked to death on two of his teeth that had become lodged in the back of his throat.  Elizabeth Taylor told her version of the incident that occurred on May 12, 1956, in an interview:

“I pulled his head off the dashboard and the steering wheel, and I probably shouldn’t have touched him, but his head was getting bigger and bigger.  And by this time, it was almost level with his delicate shoulders.

And he opened his eyes and they were bright red, so the blue of them looked even bluer, and he looked like an alien.”

The accident was a result of Clift falling asleep behind the wheel, and he required plastic surgery to repair his broken nose and jaw, severe facial lacerations and a fractured sinus.

Sterling Silver Spaghettios

At least, they’re about the same size as spaghettios!  Seriously, who would ever need to wear a ring this size?  A baby’s finger wouldn’t even fit.

Yeez, Check out those Yeezies!
