They're Stripes and You've Earned Them

Rachel Hollis is a 32-year-old mom of three, and she's not afraid to wear a bikini to the beach.

She writes a lifestyle blog called The Chic Site, and used it to share an Instagram picture of herself on the beach in a two-piece, and she's inspiring women around the world to celebrate their mom-bods.

"I have stretch marks and I wear a bikini," she wrote. "I have a belly that's permanently flabby from carrying three giant babies and I wear a bikini. My belly button is saggy... (which is something I didn't even know was possible before!!) and I wear a bikini. I wear a bikini because I'm proud of this body and every mark on it."

Check out the picture, and the rest of what she has to say.

I have stretch marks and I wear a bikini. I have a belly that's permanently flabby from carrying three giant babies and I wear a bikini. My belly button is saggy... (which is something I didn't even know was possible before!!) and I wear a bikini. I wear a bikini because I'm proud of this body and every mark on it. Those marks prove that I was blessed enough to carry my babies and that flabby tummy means I worked hard to lose what weight I could. I wear a bikini because the only man who's opinion matters knows what I went through to look this way. That same man says he's never seen anything sexier than my body, marks and all. They aren't scars ladies, they're stripes and you've earned them. Flaunt that body with pride! #HollisHoliday

Now Playing, Sauce Castillo!

The people who do closed captioning for sporting events have a rough job.

Hear it and type it, hear it and type it.

They do their best to get it right, but sometimes, they're blunders are epic.

Take this one. Nik Stauskas is a guard for the Sacramento Kings in the NBA.

Except according to the closed-caption operator the other night, his name is actually SAUCE CASTILLO.

It could easily have been one of those things no one noticed, but someone did, and now it's Nik's new name.

Check out the video on the Kings' website. And check out what Nik had to say about it on Twitter, where the name has gone a little viral...

Pranking for Lenovo

Ashton Kutcher's roots are in pranks. You of course remember his Punk'd on MTV.

And he's also the pitchman for Lenovo computers.

So why not take the two and put them together Down Under?

Great idea. And that's exactly what he did.

Watch what happens when Ashton goes undercover in an Australian department store, pitching the new Lenovo tablets to unsuspecting customers...

Thanks, Obama!

This could be one of the most bizarre stories ever.

A woman is suing the City of New York after she was locked up unnecessarily in a psychiatric ward for eight days following the confiscation of her car by the authorities.

She admits she got a little high-strung while trying to get her BMW back from the police, but when she tried to prove what an upstanding citizen she was by showing that Barack Obama followed her on Twitter, she got locked up.

Here's the kicker - turns out that @BarackObama does follow her on Twitter - except it's not POTUS, it's one of his campaign non-profit organizations.

Still, eight days in the psych ward and a bill for $13,000 for the stay seems a bit much, don't you think?

Son of Coach?

NBC announced that it has ordered 13 episodes of Coach, starring Craig T. Nelson.

You might remember that Coach, starring Craig T. Nelson, ran on ABC for nine seasons, ending in 1997.

Yes, it's the same show, 18 years later.

It picks up sort of where the original ended. Coach's adopted son is now a coach, and Coach has to deal with that.

No word yet on whether other original cast members will return, since nothing's been written yet.

The whole thing was settled in a pitch meeting... Seems almost too easy, doesn't it?

Here's a fun little clip of Craig T. Nelson meeting the Coach from the Toyota ads a couple of years ago, talking about that show they both loved so much...

Got a Drone and a Lot of Spare Time?

It's amazing how inventive some folks can be.

Take Oliver C... He's a YouTuber, probably from France, who designs flying objects with the help of drones.

His latest creation is an imperial star destroyer from Star Wars.

All you need is some foam, some aluminum and a remote-control drone, and you too could be the king of the geeks in your neighborhood...

A for Effort, But We'll Call This a Fail

You've got to give this guy credit.

A motorist traveling on Interstate 5 outside Tacoma, Washington was using the car-pool lane.

To legally do that, you have to actually have at least one passenger.

This guy did - except it wasn't a real passenger. It was a cardboard cutout of the Most Interesting Man in the World.

You know, the white-bearded guy from the Dos Equis ads?

A state trooper noticed, and pulled the guy over.

The punishment: $124 fine.

The reward: this very cool tweet from the Washington State Patrol.

He's the guy who took over Craig Ferguson's spot on The Late Late Show. You might know him as the Baker from the recent theatrical release, Into The Woods.

How does that happen?

And Now, It's Two Direction

You can thank One Direction for the high-pitched wailing coming from your local high school yesterday afternoon.

That's when they made it official: Zayn Malik is leaving the group, and it's permanent.

A week ago, Zayn stopped touring, saying he was stressed.

Now, he wants to be a "normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight."

I'm sure that will happen...

Meanwhile, One Direction will continue to tour and record without Zayn.

Which is a pretty normal reaction for a bunch of 22-year-olds, don't you think?
