Koala Bear Urinates on One Direction Members

Bad news for One Direction: 80% of Australian Koalas have chlamydia

Even though the week's only half over, the Internet already has a winner for grossest/most amazing thing of the week: A 3-year-old koala bear named Kat has urinated on Liam Payne and Harry Styles, two members of British boy band One Direction, and may have given them chlamydia, colloquially known as "the clap."

According to The Sun, 80% of Australian Koala bears are carrying the infertility-causing disease, which is actually wiping out the population. The disease may have been transferred through the marsupial's urine. Transmission to humans is unlikely but totally possible, so Liam and Harry should probably get tested.

Liam said, “I’m genuinely scared. This is worrying. I’d have never picked the thing up if I’d known.” No word from Harry yet, or on how the koala bear got both of them in the same pee stream. Now that's a livestream! Zing!

Anyway, I'll never pick up an Australian koala bear again. Unless it's super cute and really wants to cuddle! Let us know how you feel about One Direction getting peed on in the comments.

June 23: Jack White's Really Rooting for the Home Team

June 23: Jack White's Really Rooting for the Home Team

Were the Cubs down or something? Jack White was spotted at last night's baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and San Diego Padres looking absolutely miserable. The Cubbies pulled out a 6-0 win over San Diego last night so the White Stripe ideally should have been enjoying himself in spite of the team's current 41-57 record.
