It’s been an emotional couple of days. Great British Bake Off aired its final episode, Tea the Afghan Hound has been named the prettiest pooch on the planet and #WorldPastaDay reminded us how much we, well, love pasta.
Live from the Delivery Room
Of the roundup of people who have absolutely zero sense of boundaries, record producer and Snapchat extraordinaire DJ Khaled definitely takes the cake.
Bringing his phone along with him into the maternity ward where his fiancée, Nicole Tuck, was in labour, Khaled broadcasted every moment of his son’s birth. On Snapchat. Whilst playing his own album.
Streaming regular updates to his fans from the delivery room, Khaled could barely contain his excitement —
Oh my god. DJ Khaled really snapchatted the birth of his son 😱😂 pic.twitter.com/BGyrYeqk0f

Ending his Snapchat saga with a seriously cute imprint of his newborn son’s footprint, we almost forgot the absurdity of the situation….
Welcome to the world, baby Khaled!

If you read last week’s Wins and Fails blog, you’ll know people love a weird hashtag.
Continuing the tradition, this week’s weird (and wonderful) hashtag came with a Caribbean twist.
All movies we’d watch, to be fair.

It was #WorldPastaDay on Tuesday, an ode to everyone’s favourite Italian carb.

So, on #WorldPastaDay, it was only appropriate the football club remind everyone of Wanyama’s poignant words that stand the test of time:

But seriously, the sticky toffee pudding or the apple crumble? Or both?
Och Wheesht and Get Oan Wae It
After embittered Daily Mail readers demanded Scotland be booted out the Union, Scots of the Twittersphere rallied up and hijacked their #ThrowScotlandOut hashtag in the most witty way possible.
We can't #ThrowScotlandOut fs, we'll never win Wimbledon again. PRIORITIES, people.

Truly though, we can’t have Đoković winning….
It’s the end of an era, folks. Wednesday evening’s finale of Great British Bake Off wracked up a colossal 14.8 million viewers, as baking enthusiasts across the nation tuned in one last time to watch Candice Brown be crowned the winner.

When Tea’s owner, Luke Kavanagh, posted pictures of her on social media, she soon became an overnight social media sensation. News of the supermodel dog spread, and people began calling her the world’s ‘prettiest dog’.
Look at those luscious locks. They are flawless. They are a thing of beauty.

All that needs to happen now is for Tea to be the new face of Vidal Sassoon. We’d buy every product.
Double, Double Toil and Trouble
In anticipation of Halloween, #ScaryStoriesIn5Words saw some natural born storytellers emerge from the dark depths of the Twittersphere:
