If She Could Have Another Job, the First Lady Would Be...

First Lady Michelle Obama sat down for a series of interview questions over the weekend with a rapper named Wale.

I'm sorry, I don't know him, so here's his Wikipedia page...

Anyway, he sat with the president's wife and asked some questions written on index cards.

FLOTUS was very personable, and dare I say, radiant?

The best answer came to this question: "If you had the opportunity to have another occupation, what would it be?"

I won't spoil it for you. Watch it for yourself...
 
 

You asked. The First Lady and @Wale answered. #ReachHigher

No Matter What Your Tickets Cost, This Was Worth Every Penny

Fans of U2 got a major treat on Friday night when the band appeared at Madison Square Garden.

Bruce Springsteen, the king of New Jersey, was at the concert, and joined U2 on stage for a song or two.

It turned into a singalong for the entire venue as everyone joined in on "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," and then "Stand By Me."

What a night. These fans will have a story to share for a long time.

This Safe Slide is Sick

When I say the slide you're about to see is sick, that means it's good.

Yeah, I don't understand that either, but that's got nothing to do with it.

Over the weekend, Kendrys Morales of the Kansas City Royals made the most brilliant move at home plate and/or was the luckiest guy in Missouri - your pick.

Morales is the DH for KC - not known for his speed. He's on second base when his teammate hits a single, and he's off to the races.

The throw from the outfield was dead-on, and Morales should have been out.

The catcher grabbed the ball - perfect throw, perfect catch - and went for a sweep tag of Morales foot. But Morales pulled up short, the tag missed, the momentum took the catcher's glove out of the base path, and Morales just stepped around him to score.

Incredible. Especially when you consider that Morales once broke his ankle jumping on home plate to celebrate a grand slam.

Watch the Vine...

Cecil Speaks From Beyond

There's been a major uproar over the so-called sport killing of Zimbabwe's beloved Cecil the Lion by a dentist from Minnesota.

There are calls for the dentist to be brought back to Africa to face charges. The dentist has been forced to shut down his dental practice. And a huge debate about hunting has sprung up worldwide.

And now, this.

An animal psychic claims that Cecil responded to her when she reached out to him. His words, she said, moved her to tears.

The words of a large cat who apparently learned to speak - and quite eloquently - in his transition to the afterlife...

Hey, it happened in Lion King, right? So why not here?

Jon Stewart's Secret Meetings with Barack Obama

Can it be true?

Jon Stewart, who departs this week as host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show, was taken to task last week by a variety of news outlets who reported two secret meetings between the talk show icon and the President of the United States.

Why? Because the president needed Jon's support in promoting his social and political agenda.

Right. Yeah, that happened.

Jon had a lot of fun tearing the story to pieces.

"It's All Over... Just... Like... That!"

UFC fighter Ronda Rousey could well be the toughest person on the planet.

Saturday night in Rio De Janeiro, she took on hometown favorite Bethe Correia in a championship fight

There'd been a lot of trash-talking prior to the event, mostly on the part of the challenger.

I guess when you're fighting on home turf, a bit of swagger is expected, right?

That didn't sit well with Ronda, so she made fast work of her opponent.

The highlight reel is about 18 seconds.

That's all you get when the fight lasts just 35 seconds.

Fun Fun Fun with the Beach Boys

Jimmy Fallon and the gang at The Tonight Show are big fans of music history.

So it's no surprise that they'd be able to get their hands on some vintage recordings of the first draft of The Beach Boys' big hit, "Fun Fun Fun."

Okay, so in truth, it was Jimmy and Kevin Bacon having a little fun with the way the song might have come together.

Let's just say, things got stuck at the hamburger stand...

Check it out - it's very funny, and very well done too.

Out of England … A Step Up

A guy in Manchester, England called the cops around 11:30 Tuesday night, when he noticed a guy setting up a LADDER outside his apartment, leading to one of his windows. 
 
So he reported it as a possible burglary in progress.  Then while he was on the phone, he thought of something…something to end the robbery. He simply opened the window, grabbed the ladder and quickly pulled it into the apartment. The robber then just stood there shocked before running off.

Happy Pottermas, Harry!

Today marks Harry Potter's 35th birthday, according to his creator, JK Rowling.

And what better way to celebrate the beginning of his 36th trip around the Sun than with a special greeting from his old friend, Ron Weasley.

Okay, it's not really Ron.

It's Simon Pegg, playing Ron, on The Tonight Show.

Actually, playing a drunken Weasley.

Enjoy anyway...

Most Expensive Selfie Ever?

Okay, these stories keep popping up.

There's the woman taking the selfie with the lion that ends badly.

Then the woman taking the selfie with the bison that ends badly, but not as badly as the lion selfie.

And now this. A guy in San Diego decided he needed a selfie with a rattlesnake.

Go back and read that again.

Yes he did.

And yes, exactly what you thought would happen happened. The rattlesnake bit him. Not for any particular reason except that's what rattlesnakes do when you bother them.

So he ended up in the hospital, and reportedly used up two hospitals' supply of antivenom.

Which ended up costing him a whopping... well, just look at the bill.
