Tiniest Surgery Patient Ever, A Goldfish, Successfully Has Tumor Removed

A goldfish weighing just one gram, that goes by the name Molly, has become the UK's smallest surgery patient EVER. 

When Molly's owners noticed a massive lump on Molly's abdomen, they rush her to the Highcroft Vets, in Bristol, where it was discovered that Molly has a tumor and then the staff suggested surgery. 

The emergency surgery lasted about 40 minutes and they successfully removed the mass -- Molly woke up after the procedure and was taken home!

According to the staff at Highcroft Vets, Molly is officially their smallest patient to date! They normally operate on the likes of iguanas, snakes, and crocodiles.

Brits 'Get Ready For Brexit' By Mocking It To Shreds

The British government released its "Get Ready for Brexit" campaign on Sunday and let's just say, the rest of the UK is not impressed. The campaign comes in the form of billboards and social media advertisements in anticipation of Britain's October 31st exit from the EU.

One billboard in particular that reads, "Get Ready for Brexit," has recently become a meme on Twitter. Many Twitter users are mocking the ad for encouraging a "shared responsibility," and fears of what could happen to the average UK citizen - including losing access to medication.

You can read some of the snarky tweets and memes about it below!

You Thought That Sting You Got At the Beach Was Bad? Try One Of These On For Size

You've probably seen at least a few of the pictures of exotic locales with some of the craziest, and sometimes dangerous jellyfish in the world. But this monstrous specimen was found in the English Channel of all places, off of the coast of Cornwall. Better still, the jellyfish appeared out of the murk on the last day of Wild Ocean Week, which was a day to promote local fish species and understanding of the species living all around them, as well as to raise money for the Marine Conservation Society.

20 Images Of The Most Beautiful Pigeon There Is, The Victoria Crowned Pigeon

When you think "pigeon", you don't necessarily think of a unique and beautiful bird. Pigeons are common and dirty, not even close to being labeled as "beautiful". However, the Victoria Crowned Pigeon is the beautiful love-child of a pigeon and a peacock. No, not really. Just really looks that way!

With bright blue feathers and a feathered crown on top of it's head, it's totally mesmerizing! Plus, these birds could become as large as a turkey! 

If we had to choose, we'd say the Victoria Crowned Pigeon is our favorite "pigeon".

Airline's 'Backless Seats' Controversy Is Stirring Up Some Golden Twitter Parodies

When Twitter user Matthew Harris tweeted a sketchy photo of a woman sitting in a backless seat on an airplane, it sparked a barrage of parodies and roasts.

The airline, EasyJet, was quick to reply on Twitter, asking Harris to take down the photo so that they could "best assist" his complaints.  People on Twitter, however, weren't falling for the budget British airline's BS, and began creating parodies of the tweet.

Fortunately (or perhaps unfortunately, depending on your own personal opinion), it's been reported that these backless seats were actually inoperable on the flight and passengers were not permitted to use them. 

However, we've gotta wonder why EasyJet was so quick to get defensive in the Twitter thread. Very suspicious indeed...

Epic Feud Between Two Artists Is Off-The-Charts Petty

We've never seen petty like this before and honestly, this story has so many levels of petty that we're gonna have to just let it do all the talking. All we can really say is that it involves world-renowned a-hole Anish Kapoor, his "bean" (aka Cloud Gate), and the world's blackest black shade of paint.

'We Plan To Cut All Homeless People In Half' Memes Are The Definition Of WTF

Alright, well this might be the most bizarre meme trend of the year so far, we think. It all started when Redditor Zeus1027 posted a photo of a political poster put up by the Conservative Party in the UK. The poster, which appears to be located on some sort of public transit, reads, "We plan to cut all homeless people in half by 2025."

Of course, the /r/DankMemes community immediately jumped on the opportunity to mock the poster in typical memer fashion. 

While we're pretty sure you can assume what the Tories meant to say with this message, this move still comes across as a pretty severe blunder on their part! We think they should probably invest in someone to edit their posters a little more carefully...

"American Food Aisle" In British Store Is Mostly Candy and Jars of Hot Dogs

Yasmin Summan asked Twitter if her local American Food Aisle was accurate and Americans had questions of their own. Most notably, has anyone in the U.S. every seen a hot dog in a jar? It just seems...wrong. No wonder the world seems to have a low opinion of the American diet. For some more culture clash, here are some cultural habits of the UK that are just fascinating.
