    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- From five siblings using Facebook to get a puppy to a pair of jeans that moisturize your legs, THV's Tom Brannon catches you up on some Weird But True headlines.

    She's been a part of this world for nearly a century, but at 99 years old, Agnes Zhelesnik still isn't ready to retire.

    The country's oldest teacher, Zhelesnik is affectionately referred to as "Granny" at school, CNN reports. She lived through both World Wars and was a stay-at-home mom and wife for 60 years before jumpstarting her teaching career in 1995 at the Sundance School in North Plainfield, N.J. -- at the age of 81.

    Now, she teaches cooking, sewing and costume-making. Her 61-year-old daughter, also named Agnes, is also a teacher at the school.

    But why still teach at the age of 99?

    "I love [the kids]. They're my best helpers. That's the only reason why I come here, is the children," she said. "The children are the greatest. You know, you have your own, but when it's these kids, they're just something else."

    Zhelesnik says she might retire when she turns 100.

    In other weird but true news, one family is proving the power of social media. After his five kids pesterd him to get a puppy, one dad challenged them to get a million likes on Facebook and then they could have their four-legged friend.

    The father helped set up a Facebook page last week called Twogirlsandapuppy.  The message in the profile picture read "We want a puppy! Our dad said we could get one if we get 1 million likes! He doesn't think we can do it! So 'like' this!"

    The Facebook page took less than two days to reach the set target of a million likes, much to the shock of the father.   

    True to their word, the girls' parents adopted a puppy named Millie for them and their three younger brothers, even as the page is garnering likes at a breakneck speed.

    And imagine walking around in your boot-cuts while having your legs moisturized. Yes, that is what's next in the world of denim.

    Wrangler's new jean line "Denim Spa" includes a skinny-fit jean that's pumped up with ingredients that help fight against the dehydrating effects of denim.

    The effects of the ingredients last up to 15 days, but a reload spray will also available to buy - meaning that the formula lasts between 67 and 95 wears.

    The jeans come in three finishes -- Aloe Vera, Olive Extract and Smooth Legs.
