Bridge Ahoy!

I don't know why this one makes me smile, but it does.

A mega-yacht - this one is 236 feet long - got scrunched a little bit trying to squeeze through a bridge that might be just a little too small in Saint Maarten.

We really shouldn't delight in the misfortune of others, and we've all had our share of fender benders.

But this one is soooo satisfying.

Don't you think?

That's a No-No, Bud

The folks at Budweiser have run into a problem with their #upforwhatever campaign.

Their latest message: 
"The perfect beer for removing 'no' from your vocabulary for the night.”

Someone posted it to reddit and it went viral - for exactly the wrong reason.

Critics say the message at the very least promotes irresponsible drinking.

Budweiser says that wasn't the intent of the message, that it was misconstrued.

What do you think?

How Hot is This?

Buddy movies seem to work fairly well.

Usually, they feature two mismatched male actors, starting out at odds with one another, and ending up best buds when the credits roll.

But I'd be hard-pressed to come up with any buddy movies that feature two strong female actors.

Looks like the dry spell is broken.

Check out the trailer for Hot Pursuit, starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara as a rookie cop and federal witness on the run.

I've got to admit, I laughed out loud a couple of times.

I'm probably going to be in line when the film opens May 8...

Don't Taunt the Monkey

This little video will prove out something your mother must have told you once or twice.

They call them "wild animals" for a reason.

Here's a tourist in India who crosses the path of a wild monkey and makes an odd gesture at it.

The monkey responds, and the tourist cranks the gesture up a notch.

Just enough to really anger the monkey, who launches and lands a perfect drop-kick on the tourist, knocking him to the ground.

File that under Instant Karma.

And tell the monkey that Vince McMahon would be interested in signing him up for the WWE...

Revenge is a Dish Best Served... Wait, It's Cancelled?

ABC's prime-time soap, Revenge, is officially wrapping up its four-year run on May 10.

When it first aired, it was one of television's hottest shows. 

Since then, it's done okay, but not great.

The decision seems to be mutual - both the network and the producers agree that that show has run its logical course.

Now all that's left is to see what happens to Emily Thorne at the end.

And revenge will have been served... for now!

Here's a fun little mashup from a year ago - wondering what would happen if Revenge were a sitcom like Friends...

You Gotta Laugh, Otherwise...

Baltimore is a city in crisis mode right now.

With rioting in the streets, the Baltimore Orioles decided to shut down Camden Yards to fans yesterday afternoon as they played a home game against the Chicago White Sox.

Sports media was present, as well as the television crew that broadcast the game.

But not a single fan. It's never happened before in Major League Baseball history.

That didn't stop Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph from signing a few autographs.

For the imaginary fans in the bleachers.

Why not? You gotta laugh - it helps to break the tension. A little bit, anyway.

The Crown of Clowns for April 24, 2015

One day, people are going to learn that posting something publicly on Facebook means that . . . gasp . . . people can see it.

 

27-year-old Kaitlyn Walls is a single mom from Dallas, Texas.  Earlier this month, she got a job working at a daycare.

 

But the morning before she started, she posted on Facebook, quote, "I start my new job today, but I absolutely hate working at daycare."  Her new bosses saw it . . . and FIRED her before she could even start.

 

Then a mob of angry mothers on Facebook found out what she'd written and started attacking her, so she tried to clarify, quote, "Lol, it's all good, I just really hate being around a lot of kids."

 

That's really not an improvement . . . it might actually be worse.

 

Kaitlyn says she realizes that she shouldn't have vented about her job before she started . . . and if she DOES have issues in the future, she's not going to put them on Facebook.  Quote, "I'm not going to post anything . . . no matter how I feel."

Unorthodox Life Saver

Here's something you don't see every day.

A person in Brazil was threatening to jump ouf of a high-rise window.

While the jumper sat on the window ledge, contemplating the end, a Brazilian firefighter on a rope climbed out the window above the jumper, scaled down the wall a couple of steps, then swung out and in, drop-kicked the jumper back through the window. 

Part Rescue Me, part Batman. And very nicely done.

Check out the video, taken from a bystander's cell phone.

Mellencamp Smokes Away

John Mellencamp visited Late Show with David Letterman on Monday night, and it may have been one of Letterman's weirdest interviews ever.

The conversation turned toward heart attacks - both John and David have suffered them in the past - and it became clear that John's memory of his is less than clear.

And the whole time, John was smoking a cigarette - something which David of course didn't let go.

Check it out.

Disney Goes R&B

So what would happen if you took some of the best-known tunes from Disney animated films of the 90s - movies like The Little Mermaid, Lion King, Aladdin and more - and turned them into rhythm-and-blues songs?

Don't ask me.

Ask Todrick Hall and Shoshana Bean.

Because they did it, and they made it magical. Check it out.
