Ever since the Minions movie dominated the box office like it was making love to a yellow fire hydrant, many of us have been inundated with the disgusting little creatures clogging our newsfeeds and brains with their inane chatter. DEATH TO MINIONS! Wait, not so fast. One of these horrible banana chodes finally made a difference in the world (besides guaranteeing that screenwriters get axed completely from the movie-making process: "Um, yeah, here the Minion just garbles some bullsh*t, cut to an explosion, money flies in all our faces, and scene.").
A Minion has saved a 5-year-old girl's life, according to The Daily News:
"A stuffed 'Minion' teddy bear cushioned the fall of a 5-year-old girl when she accidentally fell out of a third-story window in Colorado Springs on Thursday night... The girl had been playing in her room when she fell backwards out the window.
'Fortunately, when the child fell out of the window she continued holding on to a stuffed Minion teddy bear that is believed to have cushioned her fall,' cops said."
If Minions can save even one child's life, I guess they're worth it. But she better grow up to cure cancer or something!
