Stevie Wonder just got the whole Grammys audience to applaud for Braille accessibility.

Stevie Wonder just got the entire Grammy audience to applaud for Braille.

Stevie Wonder was announcing the award for Song of the Year with the much-lauded a cappella group Pentatonix.

As he opened the envelope, he asked the group if they could read it.


They couldn't!

The card was written in Braille.

It was a really awesome, off-the-cuff moment, especially for an awards show where stilted banter is the norm.

"You can’t read Braille, nanananananaaaaa!" Stevie said before giving a quick shoutout for accessibility and accommodations for people with all disabilities.

It would've been easy for the Grammys to hand the card to one of the other performers on stage who aren't blind and have them read the winner. Props to whoever's idea it was to take the extra step to print Stevie's card in Braille so he could deliver the news himself.

It may seem like a small thing that the Grammys printed Stevie's envelope in Braille, but it showed just how simple and easy accessibility can be.

All it takes is a little prep and a bit of forethought, and what you get is pure delight.

You'd know that says "Deal with it" — if you read Braille!

That's something we can ALL deal with.

Brittany Kinley, a mother from Mansfield, Texas, had a hilarious mom fail her and she's chalking it up to being just another crazy thing that happened in 2020.

When Kinley filled out the order form for her son Mason's kindergarten class pictures, there was an option to have his name engraved into the photos. But Kinley wasn't interested in having her son's name on the photos so she wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" on the box.

Well, it appears as though she should have left the box blank because the computer or incredibly literal human that designed the photographs wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" where mason's name should be.

Back in 2017, when white supremacist Richard Spencer was socked in the face by someone wearing all black at Trump's inauguration, it launched an online debate, "Is it OK to punch a Nazi?"

The essential nature of the debate was whether it was acceptable for people to act violently towards someone with repugnant reviews, even if they were being peaceful. Some suggested people should confront them peacefully by engaging in a debate or at least make them feel uncomfortable being Nazi in public.

In December 2018, The Utah Department of Transportation opened the largest wildlife overpass in the state, spanning 320 by 50 feet across all six lanes of Interstate 80.

Its construction was intended to make traveling through the I-80 corridor in Summit County safer for motorists and the local wildlife.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that there were over 100 animal incidents on the interstate since 2016, giving the stretch of highway the unfortunate nickname of "Slaughter Row."
