KFC has created a gravy fountain.

The popular fast-food chain has imitated the party-pleasing chocolate fountain by creating its very own masterpiece, which has gallons of the side sauce pouring out. But the only existing feature has been kept under wraps inside the fried chicken company's head office. However, it has been reported that due to the immense amount of support from fans for the fountains, the franchise is considering trialling the invention in stores across the UK.

A pig's nipple has been left in a packet of bacon.

A consumer - only known as Misssmeg - has shared a picture of the farm animal's teet, which was left on the breakfast ingredient and had been packaged ready for sale, according to Reddit. The unhappy customer said: "This bacon still has the nipple on it." The stomach-turning discovery has since gone viral and encouraged people to share their views on the breast blunder. One person reacted to the news and said: "I never thought anything could make me not want bacon. Then I saw this thing. It looks disgusting."

A pensioner's 14-foot bushy cockerel has become a tourist attraction.

Jim Hughes pruned his ivy-covered tree into the shape of a male chicken and people can't get enough of it. Speaking to the Huffington Post, the 73-year-old from East Wemyss, Scotland, said: "Originally, it was an old cherry blossom tree. It got that big I was worried it would get blown over and hit a car. It's in the front garden and looks out on to the street. Since then, quite a few people have been stopping to take photographs."

Parents have been "smuggling" extra children into daycare.

A new study carried out by the new app Bubble has found that a high percentage of mothers and fathers are pushing their luck when it comes to babysitters and have been hiding friends' kids so they have more to deal with than originally predicted. The app, developed by two dads, Ari Last and Adrian Murdock, lets parents find, book, and pay local babysitters that their friends already know, use, and trust. Speaking about the app, Ari said: "We want Bubble to give transparency and an amazing service not only to parents, but babysitters, too, and rating and reviews are a great tool to use." Adrian added: "A good sitter is like gold dust and we want to keep them happy. But parenting is a tough gig, and sometimes the sheer excitement of getting time to ourselves means that even the best of us slip up now and again."
