  • What rhymes with “Trump”? Well, “chump,” for one.

    Thirteen-year-old Molly Bergman of Southern California calls presidential candidate Donald Trump an embarrassment to America in an original song she posted to her YouTube channel.

    The song, titled “Dear Mr. Trump,” begs the GOP candidate to drop out of the race, apologize to women and just go away.  

    “Dear Mr. Trump, stop being such a chump,” she sings in the first line of the song. “You’re embarrassing the nation — time to take a long vacation.”

    “You don’t explain positions fully. Your first instinct is to bully,” she goes on. “You’re a bit of a disgrace. Time to pull out of the race.”

    All the while, less-than-flattering pictures of Trump appear on the screen.

    Her voice might be sweet but don't let that fool you her message to Trump is clear, "time to go, time to go."

  • Canadian Parliament candidate Wyatt Scott decided to ditch the traditional campaign ads and take a — let’s call it different — approach.

    In his video, the independent candidate promises to “fight for Canada” while he rides a Canadian goose and swings a sword through the air. But that’s not all: Scott slays a dragon, fist-bumps an alien and even destroys a robot with lasers coming out of his eyes!

    Scott enlisted the help of student filmmakers to make the nontraditional political ad and gave them “quite a bit of artistic freedom.”

    “This is what we thought we could get away with without pushing the envelope too much.” he told the Guardian.

    “In this day and age, you have to come up with something pretty clever to get everybody’s attention.”

    Well, he certainly got our attention!

  • A group of “Lord of the Rings” fans are hoping to make J.R.R. Tolkien’s fictional city of Minas Tirith a reality.

    The team of self-described “ambitious” architects and structural engineers launched a crowdfunding campaign to help raise money to turn the fictional city into a real one.

    “We all share a love of Tolkien’s work, and a desire to challenge the common perception of community and architecture. We believe that, in realizing Minas Tirith, we can create not only the most remarkable tourist attraction on the planet, but also a wonderfully unique place to live and work.” Jonathan Wilson, the campaign leader, wrote on the campaigns Indiegogo page.

    The group is trying to raise 1.85 billion pounds — roughly $2.9 billion — to cover the cost of buying the land, building the city, and maintaining it through the year 2053.

    Rewards for campaign donors range from a follow on Twitter to getting your name on a monument or plaque. Or, if you have a spare 100,000 pounds to donate, you could be

    A few weeks ago, the Miami Heat held open auditions for its dance squad. Dozens of hopeful women turned out, but it was one very talented guy who stole the show.

    Keith Wilson’s audition video is going viral, and it’s not hard to see why.

    During the freestyle round, Beyoncé’s “Run the World (Girls)” started to play, and Wilson told BuzzFeed that he knew he’d kill it.

    “It was very simple and easy for me to catch the beat, catch the move, and just milk it for what it was,” he said.

    Wilson made it to the third round of tryouts, but not the final cut. He believes this is because of his gender.

    This wasn’t the first time the 28-year-old dance teacher had shown up for the Heat open calls; he auditioned for the first time in 2012.

    Still, Wilson hopes that one day he’ll be able to join the dance squad on the court.

    He told Local 10, “The Heat is actually one of those organizations that’s open to anything, so I’m pretty sure one day it will happen.”

    Until then, we’ll have to be content with

  • Boring in-flight safety videos are largely ignored by passengers before takeoff, despite the important information they contain.

    Well, one WestJet Airlines flight attendant took matters into his own hands and decided to give his passengers a reason to pay attention.

    He acted out the in-flight safety instructions, adding his own personal flair along the way — making the seat belt a little too tight and using his oxygen mask as a beak.

    After his demonstration was finished, he took a much deserved bow.

    The video was uploaded on Facebook by one of the passengers with the caption: “We had the best in-flight crew on WestJet. Laughed so hard.”

    In-flight safety has never been so entertaining.
