This Dog Was So Excited to Be Reunited With Its Owner That It Passed Out

They had been apart for two years. But don't worry, the dog is fine.

+ READ ARTICLE

There’s little doubt that people love their pets, after all, you don’t spend $56 billion on animals you just barely tolerate. While companion animals can’t show their love financially (Grumpy Cat nothwithstanding), it’s pretty clear that pets love their people, too. Take for example, Rebecca Ehalt’s reunion with her beloved Schnauzer, which she uploaded to YouTube. This dog was so happy to be reunited with his human friend, that it passed out from joy.

According to the YouTube posting, Ehalt had been gone for two years — that’s 14 dog years! – and the family pet just couldn’t contain all the feelings coursing through its little four-legged body and ended up shrieking in happiness until it keeled over. Don’t worry, though, the pup was taken to a vet who gave the dog a clean bill of health.

Look Out, Beyoncé: This Woman’s Subway Performance Of “Halo” Is Amazing

America's got talent, all right

+ READ ARTICLE

Waiting for the subway can be a pretty dull, quotidian activity, but on a few rare occasions it can be punctuated by a bout of pure underground magic. Take, for example, the lucky commuters who were able to witness this woman singing her heart out to Beyoncé’s “Halo.”

While most subway singers have some talent, this anonymous woman is clearly gifted in the vocals department and her rendition of the song gives Queen Bey a run for her “Halo” money, which undoubtedly explains why none of the commuters seem annoyed by her singing. A busker has to be confident about their skills if they are going to burst into song on a subway platform, but in this clip, the New York City commuters end up applauding the woman’s efforts — and that alone says a lot about her talent.

The Purrfect Supercut of Cats in Movies

Featuring furballs from Milo and Otis to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

+ READ ARTICLE

The Argentine-based filmmakerAriel Belziti has graced the Internet with “Supercats!,” a supercut of cats in movies. The clip is filled with your favorite furry Hollywood felines, like “Cat” from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the protagonist of That Darn Cat!, Buttercup from The Hunger Games and the poor star of the 1903 classic The Sick Kitten. There’s even a montage of cat-stroking villains and, yes, Garfield is in the mix. To top it all off, the video is soundtracked by The Cure’s “Love Cats”.

The uber-montage of cinematic cats — kittens, furballs and CGI creations — is the perfect clip to watch when you are stuck at work on a summer Wednesday or any other time you need some feline-based escapism.

Cat Who Thinks He’s a Dog Excitedly Welcomes Home His Soldier Owner

#NotAllCats

+ READ ARTICLE

While cats may have an usually well-deserved reputation for indifference, especially towards magic and baseball, some cats really know how to love (or at least know how to figure out who is holding the cat nip).

Take for example, Finn, a giant grey furball of a cat, who is really really excited for his beloved owner to return home. Not only does Finn know that the soldier is about to walk through the door that he is meowing at vociferously, but he’s clearly dying for his chance to deliver up some much needed cuddles. This cat is determined to be a one-soldier, one-cat USO tour for love of owner and country, no cat nip required.

Animals Dancing to ‘Push It’ Is the Cutest Video You’ll See Today

A tribute to the '80s classic

+ READ ARTICLE

The Internet is filled with videos with misleading titles. YouTube offers everything from the “Funniest Video Everrrrr” that turns out to be merely tweens throwing Pepsi cans at each other while playing video games to “Most Dramatic Save in the History of the World,” which is just some dude almost dropping a cantaloupe.

This video, though, is exactly what it claims to be: animals dancing to Salt-N-Pepa’s “Push It.” The carefully curated collection of clips were edited together by the folks at Tastefully Offensive. The video shows animals ranging from a walrus to a parrot to a variety of cats and dogs all busting a move to the ’80s classic. Crank up the volume, and get ready to do your best running man in your cubicle or, at least, crack a smile.

Watch Samuel L. Jackson Recite His Pulp Fiction Speech

If only they made audio books of Samuel L. Jackson reading the rest of the bible

+ READ ARTICLE

Samuel L. Jackson is no stranger to delivering some of the most iconic lines of the movie he’s starred in, so he was happy to comply with talk show host Graham Norton’s request to recite the entire Ezekiel 25:17 speech from Pulp Fiction.

With some moody lighting and a dramatic camera close-up, Jackson makes the speech sound as epic and menacing as it did on the big screen in 1994.

Altogether: “The path of the righteous man…”

It’s a Good Day When Ice Cube Says Nice Things Angrily

Jimmy Kimmel strikes again

+ READ ARTICLE

Does lavender body wash make you really, really angry? Do you hate a good book and a warm blanket on a gloomy day? Does the mere thought of a love like the one in The Notebook fill you with rage? Then Ice Cube is the man for you.

On last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, the 22 Jump Street star showed off his impressive skill at making even the most innocuous ad copy or Charles Schulz-ian anecdote sound like the prelude to a punch in the face. Ice Cube is so good at sounding angry all the time, he can even make parenting advice come off as threatening. It’s surprising that Jimmy Kimmel didn’t crawl under his desk to hide.

It's The Best

If you need a little inspiration to get you to the weekend, look no further than this baby goat.

It’s only a six-second clip, courtesy of YouTube user madebysam, but within those six seconds lies the cutest motivational video you will probably ever see. It’s like a Successory, but as anyone with an MBA knows, a baby goat with the drive to succeed is far more inspirational than a mug with a slogan on it.

In the video, the baby goat and her off-camera coach show that sometimes you just need some encouragement to push yourself to the limit, someone to inspire you to reach deep down inside of you and bring out your best.

World’s Slickest Kid Pulls Baseball Switcheroo on Nice Young Lady

Don't hate the player, hate the game

A young boy at a recent Toronto Blue Jays-Texas Rangers game clearly knows how to win the ladies.

After the Jays’ Luis Rivera tossed the kid a foul ball, the youngster quickly turned around and offered it to a woman sitting behind him — at least that’s what it looked like to those sitting nearby.

As seen on the replay, the little dude actually kept the game ball in his glove the whole time, using an extra ball he had on hand for his supposedly chivalrous gift.

Watch out, girls — this guy is going to grow up and break some hearts.
