  1. Bear Falls Through Skylight Into Boy’s First Birthday Party, Eats Hella Cupcakes

    Maybe my invitation got lost in the wooaaaaaaaaaaah!

    If you give a moose a muffin, he will probably want some jam, but if you don't invite a bear to a birthday party, he will devour all baked goods and cause extensive property damage. The Andrew W.K. of bears literally crashed a boy's first birthday party in Alaska last Saturday, simultaneously capturing cupcakes as well as my heart.

    Sadly, Becky was not in attendance.

    If for some reason you needed proof that Sir Mix-a-Lot's love letter to the derriere has become a respected cultural touchstone, here it is!

  4. Netflix Bug Smashes Plot Descriptions Together, the Results Are Hilariously Weird

    Congratulations, Netflix, you just wrote fan fiction!

    If you use Netflix, you may have noticed that the content recommended to you lately has sounded...well, a little off.

Some of these movies I would love to see.

  5. You’re Not Truly Relaxed Until a Python Named Walter Gives You a “Massage”

    "Let's start with the neck..."

    Imagine: you walk into a spa, prepared to get a nice relaxing rubdown, and what does your masseur turn out to be but a 20 foot Burmese python?! Total chill-killer, right? Maybe not -- apparently visitors to the Cebu City Zoo in the Philippines just love being buried under a pile of snakes.

    "I'm sorry, Dave, I'm afraid we can't do casual Fridays anymore."

    Does your boss already act like a cold and ruthless machine? Better not complain to employees at Hong Kong based Deep Knowledge Ventures: the company recently appointed a computer to their board to voice opinions "not immediately obvious to humans" (like when to get that memo out about the singularity).

  9. Dog Gets Bad Haircut, Walks Around Upright for Days in Indignation

    Whatever, dog, I've been doing that for years.
