What looks like the star of every nightmare you ever had is now apparently the talk of web. The bloodied, eel-like sea monster sports a pair of thick lips and a full row of sharp teeth. The images -- which were first posted on Reddit -- caused quite the buzz, garnering over 1 million views shortly after they were posted. Reddit readers identified the fisherman as Doug Cutler. The sea monster -- a very large sea lamprey --was caught in the waters of New Jersey. The sea lamprey is a species of parasite that typically lives in northern Atlantic waters. No need to sound the alarm, lampreys typically suck blood from larger fish and lick stones. Not a pretty sight is it.
If you haven't seen it yet, a cheerleader at William Carey University in Hattiesburg, Mississippi made the coolest half court shot EVER on Thursday night. She shot the ball while simultaneously doing a forward HAND-SPRING. Then one of the Harlem Globetrotters happened to be in town the next day, and asked her to show HIM how to do it. And she made the shot AGAIN.
See? Sometimes it's just better NOT to have hair. There's a tutorial on YouTube for just about EVERYTHING now. But some of the people who make them definitely aren't "experts" in their chosen subject. Case in point: There's a new one where a young girl shows women how to use a curling iron. And on the first curl . . . she burns off a big chunk of HAIR. Then the next 30 seconds is her sitting there looking HORRIFIED.
This is pretty good....Miracle Whip assembled a pretty random bunch of artists to do a "We Are the World"-style video singing the praises of . . . well . . . Miracle Whip. (--They include Lance Bass, Susan Boyle, Don Dokken, the Village People, Tiffany, and Wynonna Judd.) It even brought tears to the eyes of Lance Bass.
There's a band called Tummy Talk who became a big deal after a the video they made on YouTube went viral. In the video, three band members play "drums" on a guy who looks like a sumo wrestler. And all the 'music' is from them slapping the guy's stomach, cheeks, and other body parts. The video has over three million views. The expression on the big guys face is pretty funny.
There are over 40,000 Harlem Shake videos on YouTube, but only one may have abruptly ended a high school hockey team’s season. The Nyack/Tappan Zee hockey team in new York state forfeited an upcoming playoff game due to a Harlem Shake video the team made. The video which was filmed in a locker room, started off the same way just about every other Harlem Shake video does: someone in a mask (this time a goalkeeper helmet) dancing as seven other players text and go about their business. But once the bass drops, more players, most who have their head covered by a mask, join the room wearing nothing more than their underwear or compression shorts. One person is wearing nothing but a mask and a sock over his privates, while another uses a hockey stick to thrust at a teammate.
There was a meteor shower in Western Russia earlier this morning, and reports of several explosions from meteors hitting the ground. There a few crazy videos of the impact online too. This is what it sounded like from a city near where one meteor hit. The city is Chelyabinsk, almost a thousand miles east of Moscow.
A video from a Spanish band called Patax is blowing up online right now . . . and it's NOT because of the music. It's because the video is two-and-a-half minutes of their percussionist playing along to a song . . . by slapping the bare BACKSIDES of four women bent over in front of him.
Ok, this takes some stones...A Swedish skier triggered an avalanche during a downhill event in Switzerland the other day. So he had to outrun it . . . and did . . . but also decided to throw in a BACKFLIP.
