Danielle Fishel recreates "Boy Meets World" scene.

When things are a bit crazy, sometimes a little nostalgia can make everything better, and Danielle Fishel gave us the dose we didn't know we needed. Many of us know Fishel for playing Topanga Lawrence on the '90s sitcom, "Boy Meets World." Recently, she shared a reenactment of Topanga's performance arts poem titled "Donut in the Sky." The hilarious reenactment, posted to her Podcast's Instagram page, is performed side by side with the original clip, complete with the red lipstick scribble on her face.


If you were a preteen in the '90s then you're likely well acquainted with the original "Boy Meets World," which included all of Topanga's random ideas, Cory's eye rolls and Shawn's hair flips, and let's not forget Mr. Feeny. The show quickly became a classic, with just about every preteen in America feeling like the trio were their good friends that happened to live in the television. Growing up with them, we were going through some of the same things at the same time. Fishel fully committed to the reenactment donning a lace dress over leggings and lace-up boots to take us back to the beginning of a cultural phenomenon.

Fishel co-hosts a podcast called "Pod Meets World" with Rider Strong, who played Shawn, Cory's best friend, and Will Friedle who played Eric, Cory's older brother, on the popular teen sitcom. The podcast focuses on the three of them watching "Boy Meets World" from the beginning, which is why Fishel felt the need to channel her inner Topanga as they talked about her introduction on the show.

We won't solve world issues with "Donut in the Sky" but some poems and some performances are timeless in providing a little comical relief. I, for one, can't wait to see what scene they decide to recreate next.

Adorable Dexter and his new chew toy. Thanks Chewy Claus.

True

Every holiday season, millions of kids send letters asking for everything from a new bike to a pony. Some even make altruistic requests such as peace on Earth or helping struggling families around the holidays.

But wouldn’t the holiday season be even more magical if our pets had their wishes granted, too? That’s why Chewy Claus is stepping up to spread holiday cheer to America’s pets.

Does your dog dream of a month’s supply of treats or chew toys? Would your cat love a new tree complete with a stylish condo? How about giving your betta fish some fresh decor that’ll really tie its tank together?

Or do your pets need something more than mere creature comforts such as life-saving surgery?

Teen raises $186,000 to help Walmart worker retire.

In America, many people have to work well past the age of retirement to make ends meet. While some of these people choose to work past retirement age because it keeps them active, some older people, like Nola Carpenter, 81, work out of necessity.

Carpenter has been working at Walmart for 20 years, way beyond most people's retirement age just so that she can afford to continue to pay her mortgage. When 19-year-old Devan Bonagura saw the woman looking tired in the break room of the store, he posted a video to his TikTok of Carpenter with a text overlay that said, "Life shouldn't b this hard..." complete with a sad face emoji.

In the video, Carpenter is sitting at a small table looking down and appearing to be exhausted. The caption of the video reads ":/ I feel bad." Turns out, a lot of other people did too, and encouraged the teen to start a GoFundMe, which has since completed.

Philadelphia is taking the city back to the past.

Remember when calling your parents, a tow truck or a friend when you were out and about meant digging in your pocket for a quarter to make a pay phone call? Well, a Philadelphia-based collective, PhilTel, is jumping into the past with a modern twist, by installing free-to-use pay phones throughout the city.

Of course, the pay phones that many of us grew up were removed from public places years ago. There no longer seemed to be a need for them when most people had a phone in their pocket or in their hand. But it's easy to forget that not everyone has or wants that luxury. For some people, staying that connected all the time can be too much and for others, it's simply financially impossible to own a cell phone.

Think all cats are the same? These pictures prove they each have their own personality

Catographer purrfectly captures cats' purrsonalities.

People often mistakingly attribute a singular personality to cats—usually the words "aloof" or "snobby" are used to describe them. At best, they might be given the "evil genius" label. But in actuality, no two cats are alike. Each has their own distinct ways of being, whether that’s silly, sophisticated, affectionate, downright diabolical or somewhere in between.

This photographer has the pictures to prove it.

Nils Jacobi, better known online as furryfritz, the catographer, has photographed literally thousands upon thousands of cats—from Maine coons who look like they should be in a perfume ad to tabbies in full-on derp mode.
