Meet Kama the Pig: Hawaii's Most Famous Surfer

Update 07/18/2014 04:25 PM Originally posted 07/17/2014 03:25 PM

Surfers in general are not a tidy group of people, but there's only one who lives in a literal pigsty: Kama the surfing pig, who has quickly become the Internet's favorite surfing quadruped.

Kama met his current owner, Kai Holt, when the latter was on vacation. The piglet was living by himself on the beach when he wandered into Holt's cabana and soon found himself adopted. Only a little while later, he fell in Holt's pool and surprised his owner with a tiny doggie paddle – or rather, piggy paddle.

Amazed by Kama's love of aquatics, Holt started taking his pet along on his surfing trips; before he knew it, the little pig was hopping on the surfboard too. In February, the story of the surfing pig attracted a number of local news outlets, which then spread Kama's story to the mainland. The Internet had a new talented animal to celebrate!

Some dogs can fetch, others play dead, but here's a trick you probably haven't seen very often: This dog can fly.

Shadow, an Australian cattle dog, joined his owner, Dan McManus, high in the sky on Monday, accompanying him on a hang gliding flight with a specially made harness.

"He wanted to go along," McManus told Fox News earlier in July, "and he didn't really like to see me up there by myself."

Grumpy Cat Lands a Movie Deal

If a movie deal won't put a smile on Grumpy Cat's face, we don't know what will.

The feline Internet sensation (real name: Tardar Sauce) is teaming up with Broken Road Productions to star in a feature film similar in nature to Garfield, reports Deadline.

"Rare is an image that evokes that much comedy," said Todd Garner, Broken Road founder and producer, who will help bring Grumpy Cat to the big screen along with partner Sean Robins. "You read all of the memes and the comments, and one is funnier than the next. We think we can build a big family comedy around this character."
