Helping Hand

8-Year-Old Girl Uses Prosthetic Arm ...

For The First Time

8/24/2015 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

8-year-old Isabella from Bristol, UK just got a helping hand from a volunteer at e-NABLE -- a company that develops 3D printed “Helper hands” to children and adults around the globe.

Stephen Davies, who is also a user of e-NABLE devices, delivered a Beta version of one of their new designs to their first recipient.

Isabella will serve as a tester for the company to help develop stronger and better arm designs ... but we're sure she won't mind being their guinea pig from the look on her face after she picks up a toy with her new hand.

Way to go e-NABLE!!!

Bear Having A Ball

Having fun is just one of those simple bare necessities of life ... and this bear was forgetting about his worries and his strife while he was playing around out in the wild.

Wherever these tourists wandered, wherever they roamed, they couldn't contain their laughter ... watching the adorable grizzly from a really far/safe distance as he rolled down a grassy hill.

This video is definitely one of Old Mother Nature's recipes for a good laugh.

Turns Into A Prison

For One Dude

8/24/2015 10:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sitting in a hot sauna after a hard workout is supposed to be relaxing ... but for Nicholas Clayton it turned out to be lot more stress.

The gym staff locked up at 5 PM -- seems pretty early -- and Nicholas obviously thought so too because he was still baking in the sauna when they closed down the gym for the night. He  documented the experience on video and posted on Facebook.

Good thing for him, he didn't have to curl up on a yoga mat and wait it out til they opened the next morning ... he finally got in touch with gym management and they were able to get him out.

Standing on high heels is hard enough ... it's nearly impossible to do when you're pregnant and trying to model clothes in a local news studio.

Poor Kelly just couldn't keep her footing during a fashion segment on KCAL 9 last week.

We're not laughing at you Kelly, we're laughing with you ... just next time get some flats before you walk out there.

It’s been scorching this summer and it must be twice as hot if you’re covered in fur … probably why this family of bears decided to cool down in the Baso family pool.

Deez Nuts

Tough Competition From

Jack Sparrow & Tom Brady Sketch

EXCLUSIVE

0820-presidential-debate-fa-getty-02Independent presidential hopeful Deez Nuts won't have a cakewalk to D.C. -- the opposition is rising up, with candidates like Mr. Crawfish Crawfish filing their own docs to enter the race.

We combed through the statements of candidacy filed with the Federal Election Commission, and discovered Jack Sparrow, Buddy the Elf, Tom Brady Sketch, and Goddamn Mr. Johnny Roosevelt are all attempting to get on the campaign trail.

Fact is ... anyone can file an FEC form -- it's really just an acknowledgement of an intent to run for office. An official candidate also has to raise $5k and meet the Constitutional requirements to be president, according to an FEC spokesperson.

For instance, Mr. Nuts may be popular in polls -- but since he's only 15-years-old he won't be on the ballot. 

Since Tom Brady Sketch lists his political party as his Twitter handle ... we're guessing he won't make the cut. Sadly, same goes for Buddy the Elf who's backed by the "Santa's Helpers" party.

Still, we're all for inviting them to debates. Trump vs. Crawfish on immigration would be epic!

Whoever said animals don't have a sense of humor hasn't seen this video.

Sword Fighting Stickup

Store Clerk Has A Bigger Blade

8/20/2015 10:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Everyone knows you don't bring a knife to a gun fight ... but these robbers just learned you don't bring a machete to an Arabian sword fight.

When two ski mask wearing thieves tried to rob a convenience store with a machete in Pittsburgh, the cashier, Jewad Hayih, sprang into action like Jake Gyllenhaal from "Prince of Persia" ... chasing them off with his even bigger blade.

Luckily, the robbers didn't have a gun cause the clerk had one of those too and it could have gotten messy real quick.

Little Girl With Robotic Hand

Throws First Pitch

At Baltimore Orioles Game

8/19/2015 1:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

5-year-old Hailey Dawson showed everyone that disabilities don't have to hold anyone back ... throwing out the first pitch at a Baltimore Orioles game with her robotic hand.

Hailey's right hand is not fully developed because a rare disease called Poland Syndrome. 

UNLV engineers and Hailey's mom worked together to design her 3-D printed prosthetic called the Flexy-Hand 2 ... that helps her with the ability to grip things.

Thanks to their hard work, Hailey was able to use the Orioles-themed robotic hand to throw out the first pitch to third baseman Manny Machado before Monday night's game.
