As adorable as it is to watch a baby elephant play soccer or splash in a pool, it's equally depressing to see one cry.

An infant elephant was inconsolable this week after his own mother actually tried to stomp him to death in a Chinese zoo.

According to Metro U.K., the mother gave birth to her son in August and tried to step on him soon afterward. Hoping it was an accident, veterinarians treated the calf and returned him to his parent… only for the same violent incident to take place again.

Said a zoo employee:

Tom Hanks was summoned for jury duty this week and actually served, but his presence ended up causing controversy and ending a domestic violence trial.

The Oscar winner spent Tuesday on jury duty, hearing the case of a man accused of striking his girlfriend. But soon things took an unexpected turn.

Officials at the L.A. City Attorney’s Office offered the defendant a plea bargain after that learning a female member of the team approached the movie star.

In yet another attempt to control teens everywhere with a little shame and public embarrassment, one Utah dad decided to dress like his daughter to send the message that "modest is hottest."

While getting ready for family night, Scott Mackintosh's wife Becky asked their teenage daughter to change her shorts. The teen's response? "No."

Dad's response? Well, see for yourself.

Upon hearing his daughter's refusal to change her clothes, dear old dad decided to meet her attire with a pair of short shorts of his own.

Mackintosh grabbed a pair of scissors and some old jeans and cut the shorts so that there was "only about an inch of material below the crotch of the shorts." 

Thank the Hollywood stars their family fun night didn't include twerkingamiright?

An epic customer service phone call meltdown surfaced online yesterday, and it's beyond bad ... so much so that one almost assumes Jimmy Kimmel is involved.

The audio, which first appeared on Reddit, purports to be a real customer service call to a home security company, but it just HAS to be a hoax. Right?

Listen to the intense recording, posted by someone who claimed to be a former employee of the same call center, in its entire, unedited glory below:

The call, which allegedly took place four years ago, features a customer who is pissed that he can't directly dial the staffer who left him a voicemail.

So he LASHES OUT at a customer service rep, then stays on the phone while refusing to be put on hold or transferred, instead making violent threats.

Most obituaries commemorate the passing a departed person with loved ones' recollections of their life's best moments, accomplishments and memories.

This is not one of those obituaries.

A scathing send-off published in the Reno Gazette-Journal detailed the joy that the children of Marianne Theresa Johnson-Reddick felt when she died.

Yes, you read that correctly.

It may be awful, and in bad taste. Or it may be years overdue for a woman who deserved it, if their assessment of Marianne Reddick is accurate.

Jason Mortensen, the disoriented husband who woke up from surgery and gushed over his wife's beauty (briefly unaware they were married), is speaking out.

Amid claims that the video is fake, the woozy, disoriented hospital patient and his doctor both went on the record saying the clip is real. And wonderful.

He also introduced the world to wife Candice - the woman he thought was a model and felt he hit the "jackpot" with - on Inside Edition. Take a look:

In the wildly popular YouTube video "Seeing Her for the First Time Again" (below), Jason is blown away by the beauty of the woman in the room with him.

When she explains she is his wife, which he did not realize due to the anesthesia he was under, he can't believe his good fortune and yells, "Jackpot!"

Candice said her spouse had actually been acting like that for a solid 20 minutes before she pulled out her phone and started recording his happiness/delirium.

Some pro-choice groups are reportedly not happy about a new set of subway advertisements by pro-life groups that they say are misleading to teens.

Several pro-choice advocates are speaking out against the New York City transportation ads from EMC Frontline Pregnancy Centers, a pro-life group.

The ads are simple and offer free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds and counseling, but it’s what they don’t say that is causing some issues and controversy.

Take a look below to see what the issue is:

Critics say the ads are misleading to young women because there is no direct access to health care provided, while opinions are presented as fact.

Andrea Miller, Executive Director of NARAL, told PIX11 that “Regardless of your views on this issue ... there should be truth in advertising here.”
