In 1944, an American Solider, fell in love with an 18-year-old French girl.

Two months later, he had to leave the village in a hurry for the eastern front, leaving them both wondering whether they would ever meet again.

He kept a picture of her and showed it to journalists from the French broadcaster, France 2, while they were filming a report on veterans in the United States. A few weeks later, he went to France for the commemorative ceremonies marking the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

To his surprise, journalists had managed to track her down.

Two gorillas have been photographed posing for a relaxed selfie with the rangers who rescued them as babies.

The image was taken at a gorilla orphanage in Virunga National Park, DR Congo, where the animals were raised after poachers killed their parents in 2007.

Because they’ve grown up with the rangers who rescued them, Innocent Mburanumwe, deputy director of Virunga said “they are imitating the humans” – and standing on two legs is their way of “learning to be human beings”.

But it “doesn’t happen normally”, he said.

“I was very surprised to see it… so it’s very funny. It’s very curious to see how a gorilla can imitate a human and stand up.”

A 12 year old schoolgirl snapped this picture of what experts are saying is the best image of the Loch Ness Monster in years.

There definitely seems to be something in this photo – whether it’s a seal, a monster or a badly disguised spy submarine, remains to be uncovered.

KFC has released a hipster version of the old Colonel Sanders. This millennial version of the Colonel has taken over the KFC Instagram, sporting wavy grey locks atop an almost wrinkle-free face.

In this trend of fake news, this is the cherry on top – He’s not even a real person, but a CGI. Yup, ladies – he’s just a pixelated figment of the advertising agency’s imagination.

 

He seems to be poking fun at the influencer culture as this new Colonel is advertising everything, except chicken.

But in the end, the Colonel is still #humble and always on brand.

He has a KFC logo on his torso, which reads: “#SecretRecipe for Success”.

He posts about being “just a kid who loves being in the kitchen”.

One thing’s for sure – he’s definitely finger lickin’ good… and I’d like to get a bucket of thighs please.
