Panera Bread trying very hard to dig itself out of an embarrassing hole.

Last week, an assistant manager at a Savanna location told a mother than she had to take off her two-year old daughter's shoes - because a customer complained that they squeaked too loudly - or leave the restaurant.

It turns out, however, that the child was wearing special orthopedic footwear because she has a developmental disorder.

"It was very hurtful, and I left the store crying, not a very good thing for a mom to feel like her child is being discriminated against," the mother, Catherine Duke, told WTOC.

Another scary movie, another awesome prank.

Following last year's Carrie joke - in which the PR machine behind that film made people believe a coffee shop patron was possessed - the producers behind Devil's Due have come out with their own frightening promotion.

It involves the sidewalks of New York City. A seemingly abandoned stroller. And what appears to be an innocent baby inside, waiting for concerned citizens to check on him.

Only this is no innocent baby. It's a robot that lets out a scream - and vomits and flips off the police - when approached, leaving folks to react in terror. Amazingly hilarious terror.

If this story doesn't bring a tear to your eye... well, you may need new eyes.

On January 6, Shanell Mouland sat in the window seat of a flight from Florida to Philadelphia. By her side was her three-year old daughter, Kate, who suffers from Autism, and by her side, in the aisle, was a stranger in a business suit.

In an open letter (titled "Dear 'Daddy' in Seat 16C") soon after the trip, Mouland wrote that she was initially scared her child would "pour water all over" this man's "multi-million dollar contracts," but was then amazed to be proven wrong.

Very, very, very, very wrong.

The man ended up being exceedingly kind and patient with Kate, not even correcting the toddler when she called him "Daddy."

This is beyond adorable.

And also a tad frightening.

Author Ted Scheinman Tweeted a photo this morning of a napkin, on which a pair of eight-year olds explain all they know about relationships and how men and women fall for each other.

"The best thing you will read all day: two of my sister's 2nd graders on "how to fall in love." My favorite: step #8," wrote Scheinman along with the picture.

Same here. Although the number of times these tykes reference "sex" is a bit scary:

Doyin Richards really doesn't understand all the fuss.

A blogger for the site Daddy Doin' Work, Richards offered to give his busy wife some help recently: she was running late for work, but the couple's young daughter needed her hair done.

So Richards volunteered and, just to prove to his wife that he could actually pull it off, posted a photo of himself acting as a stylist while also holding the pair's baby against his chest.

He put the picture online and didn't think much of it... until it was Shared and Liked thousands of times across Facebook.

In a post detailed two extreme types of reactions, Richards writes that some folks were positively amazed that a father was taking care of his children...

... while others took a far more negative and racist approach.

Give Ruth Iorio credit. She certainly isn't boring Facebook followers with updates about her latest meal.

Instead, the Los Angeles resident and writer took to Facebook late last month and shared intimate photos of her home birth. For what reason?

Iorio tells the Huffington Post she wanted to publicize "my unique experience, whether attractive or not and just to be honest about it."

The result was a raw, VERY personal look at the miracle of life, starting with contractions around 8:15 p.m. on Christmas and updates that included how the pain was akin to a "shitty period" and how she had a lot of diarrhea.

Ruth Iorio at Home

Iorio used a midwife to help with the birth and sat with her dog in bed a few hours into the labor:

Teachers often tell kids in school that there are no dumb questions.

That may or may not be true. But there are definitely dumb questionnaires.

To wit: a father recently received a document from his child's daycare that asked him to list her strengths, her goals, her interests and more. His child, by the way, is 11 months old.

So the parent went ahead and actually answered most categories honestly… he just did so in a totally hilarious manner. See what we mean here:

Dad's Daycare Questionnaire

Wrote the user who posted this on Reddit, of his friend:

"When daycare, completely seriously, asks my friend to answer stupid questions on behalf of his 11 month old daughter, it is inevitable that stupid answers is what they'll receive."

We totally wanna hang out with this dad and the mom who made her cyber bullying daughter sell her iPod.

So, what have you been doing in the frigid weather this winter?

Alexander Skarsgård has been sitting naked on a toilet in the South Pole.

And three brothers in New Brighton, Minnesota have taken advantage of the Polar Vortex to construct a 20-foot tall share in their snow-filled front yard. Seriously!

Austin, Connor and Trevor Bartz say the project took them about three-and-a-half weeks and 95 hours to complete. But, hey, it must have made shoveling the driveway a lot more fun!

Look at the incredible photos now:

  • Minnesota Snow Shark

Well done, Unnamed Mother.

In a case of seemingly well-deserved public shaming, a parent has forced her daughter to pose for a photo on Facebook while holding a sign that says she's been acting as a cyber bully.

As punishment, the young lady is being forced to sell her iPod and give the money to the charity Beat Bullying. Why must she do so?

Because bullying is wrong, as the message below reads.

Cyber Bully Punishment

What do you think of this punishment? How does it compare to another mother taking away her child's One Direction tickets because the daughter acted like a trollop?

Say hello to Charlize Glass.

The 12-year old has already put together an impressive resume, having finished second in 2012 on America's Next Best Dance Crew; been featured in a Ciara music video; and grooved alongside Justin Bieber in Maejor Alie's "Lolly" video.

But this background will scarcely prepare viewers for Glass shaking and moving to Beyonce's "Yonce."

Check out the fierceness and energy displayed by the up-and-comer now. It's amazing stuff:
