No, Tubbycoin Isn't Real, and No, Not Everyone Got the April Fool's Joke

Last night was weird. In a cold medicine haze I happened upon a tweet from Netflix featuring a Furby saying "Let the dark harvest begin." It was terrifying and confusing. I moved on. All was well in the world as I scrolled past bad political take after bad political take. Until I saw a tweet from the @TeletubbiesHQ account that teased something big - and featured the #Bitcoin hashtag. After pinching myself really hard to ensure that I was not hallucinating, it became obvious from the responses, that other Twitter users were just as bewildered.

The very mixed response continued after the account tweeted an update this morning: 

Fortunately, anyone who clicked through the link and read through the increasingly ridiculous WildBrain labs presser realized that the whole "HugTech" thing was an April Fool's charade - for a good cause. Michael Riley of Wild Brain explained towards the end of the release in the following statement: 

"I'd like to wish everyone a Happy April Fools' Day! Although TubbyCoin is not really a cryptocurrency, our hope is that you'll still enjoy sharing TubbyCoins with friends, family and anyone who needs a hug – all to bring some very real smiles to faces. And the part about WildBrain's donation to charity is no joke. To help ensure kids have the assistance they need in these difficult times, we'll be making a $5,000 donation to Kids Help Phone and adding one dollar to our donation for every TubbyCoin shared on social media up to a total of $10,000. So, share those virtual BigHugs!"

While one might expect a positive reaction after the initial shock and horror of Teletubby cryptocurrency, people are still decrying the move, citing crypto's effects on the environment, and even some chiding from Twitter users who seem to be convinced that this prank will encourage child gambling. The whole thing is almost too ridiculous to comprehend, but thanks to another annoying April Fools Day, we're forced to think about this nonsense. Thank god for comedy-leaning commenters. We don't know where we'd be without them.

Redditors Come Together To Help Student Pay For His Mom's Medical Bills

We spend a lot of time covering cringey people who make us believe there's very little hope for the human race, but every now and then we see people who make us believe the opposite. Redditor u/MrElonMusk420shared some photos yesterday of his beloved grandfather's leatherman tool with the intention of selling it to help pay for his sick mother's medical costs.

The community quickly decided they weren't going to let the big-hearted student sell the family heirloom, and instead started flooding his PayPal account with donations. He received so many kind gifts that eventually he removed his PayPal from the thread. It's wholesome moments like this that make us happy that the internet exists, and that there really are some solid people using it.

Dad's Hair-Dye Disaster Takes A Wholesome Turn In This Adorable Twitter Story

Matthew Green got a little more than he bargained for when he tweeted that his son wanted to dye his hair blue, but only if Green would also do it. Another Twitter user replied saying that if Green were to follow through with it, they would donate $300 to RAICES, an organization that provides free and low-cost legal services to immigrants and refugees. 

Sometimes you gotta make yourself look stupid in the name of a good cause!
