Hamsters Do 'Friends' Opening, Will Adorably Be There For You

(0) Comments | Posted October 3, 2015 | 10:02 AM

Sure, "Friends" is one of the most popular sitcoms ever. But did you ever wish it were cuter and fluffier?

Wish granted. A video posted Friday on Mashable's Watercooler features hamsters performing the "Friends" opening at a tiny Central Perk.

Ross is mysteriously missing from the rodent cast, but thankfully we still have Rachel's adorable hair to admire.

Stephen Colbert Talks Oregon Shooting From The Heart

(3) Comments | Posted October 3, 2015 | 7:14 AM

Stephen Colbert knows that some things just aren't funny, but they can't be ignored either.

In his opening remarks Friday on "The Late Show," the host said he wanted to talk about pretending. "That is something that I know a little bit about," he said to light laughter.

But his intro was merely a segue into brutally honest remarks on the shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon.

“I think that the least that we can do is not pretend to always know what to do or say. And in the face of the killings in Oregon yesterday, I honestly don’t know what to do or say,” he said.

“I think pretending is part of the problem," he said later. "These things happen over and over again and we are naturally horrified and shocked when we hear about them, but then we change nothing and we pretend that it won’t happen again.”

Watch above for the full commentary.

Snoop Dogg Goes Off On Steelers Kicker Like Only Snoop Dogg Can

All the weed in the world probably couldn't mellow Snoop Dogg's disdain for Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Josh Scobee.

Snoop, a Steelers diehard, vented on Instagram after Scobee missed two field goals late in the fourth quarter against the Baltimore Ravens Thursday. Baltimore eventually won in overtime, 23-20.

Kayaker Tries To Reason With Destructive Bear, Fails Miserably

(0) Comments | Posted October 1, 2015 | 3:26 PM

Reasoning with a bear ... can be a bear. In a viral video posted Tuesday, YouTube user Mary Maley wrote that she was on a solo kayak trip in Berg Bay, Alaska, when a curious bear approached her unoccupied kayak at lunchtime.

The rest is wildnerness theater.

At first Maley thanks the bear for leaving the kayak alone. Then she threatens it with pepper spray (and makes good on the threat.) But the bear begins gnawing and pummeling the kayak. "Stop breaking my kayak please," Maley says. Later, after a moment of resignation, Maley comes up with the best lines of all: "It's the end of September. Why are you here? You're supposed to be asleep."

The whole exchange seems so "Northern Exposure," doesn't it?

Incidentally, Maley said she was taken to another place to have her kayak repaired. We've reached out to her to see how things are going, and we'll let you know if we hear back.

Proof That Pickup Lines Are Terrible In Any Language

(0) Comments | Posted October 1, 2015 | 12:55 PM

It's comforting or disconcerting, take your pick, that pickup lines around the world are equally lame no matter the langauge.

Cut Video traveled the globe to collect come-ons in a new clip (above) that proves the art of meeting someone with a slick intro is a struggle everywhere.

We've heard versions of most of the lines in the video, like, "Do you believe in love at first sight or should I walk by again?" But a man in New Delhi definitely takes the cake for creativity with this line: "Is your father a terrorist? Because you look bomb." 

All corny approaches aside, the next time someone sets your heart aflutter, why not just try saying a simple "hello"?

Trevor Noah Has A Lot Of Fun With Awkward Obama-Putin Meeting

Monday's stiff U.N. meeting between President Barack Obama and Russian president Vladimir Putin provided plenty of comic material, and Trevor Noah of "The Daily Show" wasn't going to pass it up.

On Tuesday in a segment titled "Cheers to Another Cold War," the new host gleefully roasted the two world leaders, even riffing on Wolf Blitzer's brief play-by-play of their body language.

Now that's cold.

Vegan Protesters Chew Ears Off Steakhouse Customers

(1) Comments | Posted September 30, 2015 | 11:37 AM

Maybe these vegans should take their beef elsewhere.

An animal-rights group's guerrilla-style protest at a Toronto steakhouse is earning plenty of sizzle in the media -- but not all for the right reasons.

Some have called out Direct Action Everywhere Toronto for its tactics.

In a video of the demonstration, a woman approaches the hostess at The Keg Mansion steakhouse in Toronto and asks for dog meat, launching into a routine that leads to a full-on disruption. Other protesters herd into the dining room carrying signs that read: "It's not food. It's violence."

Diners appear mostly amused and eventually the demonstrators are politely ushered out. This is Canada, after all.

But according to some social and media sites, the protest was not well done. "This is how you give your movement a bad name," Viral Viral Videos wrote.

One post of the video on Reddit was headlined, "Group of Assholes Ruin Dinner @ Keg Mansion."

Jenny McQueen, one of the protest organizers, told "We're trying to cause a little disruption in society. Society normalizes violence against animals, unknowingly a lot of the time. People eat meat, buy meat from the supermarket. They don't realize what they're eating or what they're buying was a thinking and feeling animal. You know, pigs feel pain just like cats and dogs."

Did Direct Action Everywhere Toronto successfully get to the meat of the matter or was its method overcooked? Let us know what you think in the comments.

Just An Airborne Dude On A Water Jet Pack Catching A Frisbee

He could have just gone to the park for a nice game of frisbee but noooooooo.

That wouldn't have gone viral now, would it?

In a stunt staged by Ultimate Insanity, a guy on a water jet pack (actually a Defiance Flyboard) catches a frisbee thrown a long way from a bridge.

The video was posted in August but is catching on now.

 We can see why.

Thank You Ronnie Pickering For The Best Road Rage Ever

(0) Comments | Posted September 29, 2015 | 3:39 PM

Road rage, thy name is Ronnie Pickering.

A British man named Ronnie Pickering has become a viral star nearly overnight for his tirade against a motorcyclist.

Let's say right up front that Ronnie Pickering has a right dirty mouth, and he wasn't afraid to use it against this moped-riding bloke. (We're pleased to report Pickering's tongue was the only weapon used in the confrontation, despite his bare-knuckle challenge.)

The video, posted to YouTube on Sunday, is racking up big numbers for Pickering's salty talk and in-your-face delivery. (The exchange begins at about the :50 mark.)

The trouble appeared to have started when the moped moved in front of Pickering's Citroen in Hull, England, impeding his progress.

En route to a diatribe that The Huffington Post UK called an "expletive-laden joy," he asks the motorcyclist, "Do you know who I am?"

We do now, Ronnie Pickering.

Pickering, a 54-year-old grandfather of five, later said he was sorry.

"I'd like to apologize for my outburst," he told the Hull Daily Mail. "He really got to me. I am not an aggressive guy. He was baiting me so I thought I would give him a few of my thoughts."

If we may be allowed to speak for an entertainment-hungry Internet, apology accepted, Ronnie Pickering!
