The Daily Word in Emojis, Artful Expression and A Chicken Thief

By Monica Schmitt [ Tue Jun 21 2016 11:05 AM ]
The Daily Word

A mama Black Bear attacked a marathon-runner at Valles Caldera National Park in defense of her cubs. The runner survived by playing dead, but the Department of Game and Fish euthanized the bear, who was part of a study and wearing a tracking device.

You may be able to purchase a semi-automatic rifle in a number of minutes, but don't count on sending a rifle emoji.

Young artist Kaylin Andres who has been diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer expresses the realities of her illness through timeless art exhibits.

So, this is strange: In Jackson, Mississippi a 77-year-old man stole three boxes of frozen chicken before hastily riding away on a bicycle.

Looks like the Great Pyramid of Giza is a bit crooked. Ah well, we all make mistakes. Even extraterrestrials.

Anyone else growing as impatient as I am to see Steven Spielberg's rendition of Roald Dahl's fantastically imaginative book The BFG? The director and producer explains why he feels a distinct connection with the Big Friendly Giant.

In case you're looking for some fresh summer road trip jams.
