It was The Obituary Read 'Round the World.

Last August, Katherine Riddick and her brother said goodbye to their mother via a truly scathing article that painted Marianne Theresa Johnson-Reddick in a horrendous light.

"On behalf of her children whom she so abrasively exposed to her evil and violent life, we celebrate her death from this earth and hope she lives in the after-life reliving each gesture of violence, cruelty, and shame that she delivered on her children," read the obit.

"Her surviving children will now live the rest of their lives with the peace of knowing their nightmare finally has some form of closure."

The obituary made headlines around the nation and Reddick talked to The Huffington Post this week about the responses she has received since.

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.

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."

It's not everyday that someone crashes through the ceiling of a golf shop.

At least we didn't think this was something that took place on a frequent basis, but - based on the following footage - perhaps we made a false assumption.

In the video, a man falls to the floor of a shop... and then just lies there casually. Hey Ron, says a store employee. Hey Billy, responds the prone gentleman. That hurt.

We'd imagine so. Watch the accident and the relaxed response to it now:

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.

It's really cold out.

Most folks just need to step outside their front door to confirm this fact, or check out these awesome photos of a gigantic snow shark in the front yard of a Minnesota home.

But you could also check out the following images that are making their way around the Internet today, as Reuters photographer Aaron Harris captured some amazing shots of a partially frozen over Niagara Falls.

This is what the Polar Vortex does to a 167-foot tall waterfall:

Don't be too fooled by talk on social media, however. The Falls are not completely frozen and The Washington Post's Caitlin Dewey says this happens nearly every winter.
