Today’s been a strange day for news. Rudy Giuliani is serving as co-counsel on a suit filed by Manuel Noriega – former dictator of Panama (who’s currently in prison for, you know, murder). His suit asserts that his depiction in Call of Duty: Black Ops is a “blatant misuse” of his image, and, according to PC Gamer, he’s offended by his portrayal “as an antagonist and… as the culprit of numerous fictional heinous crimes.” I definitely recommend watching the video (viewable at PC Gamer) in which Giuliani haughtily defends the “good American company” that made Call of Duty.
Speaking of dictators and evil people, BuzzFeed reports that Drek, a gay party organizer based in Tel Aviv, has used images associated with ISIS in recent promotional material for a party called “Drekistan at the Haoman.” “We are trying to react to current events,” Drek told YNet. “But we reject violence in any form and that includes the (execution) videos intended to scare the world.”
Since it’s Monday, you probably wish you could react to all of this madness like these koalas. Unfortunately, we’re adult humans and they’re… koalas. But we can live vicariously through their anger and frustration. To cheer you up, Refinery29 and The Dodo have teamed up to bring you these adorable images of the unfairly maligned black cat. See, this week won’t be so bad, will it?
And in totally awesome but not that unexpected news, Motherboard reports that dogs actually get you way more than they’re given credit for. According to a study from the open-access science journal PLOS ONE, if a human subject has an object in her hand, the dog is more tuned in to the relationship between the human and the object than the object itself.

Last but not least, a woman had a third breast implanted in her chest in the hopes of landing a reality TV show. Jasmine Tridevil, based in Florida, reportedly spent $20,000 for the surgery. Apparently, some are claiming this is a hoax. The facts remain to be, er, seen.
