  • A video of a toddler meeting her father's identical twin brother for the first time has racked up over a million views on YouTube.

    The video starts with the girl and her dad walking into her uncle's house. As soon as she sets eyes on "Uncle Herbie," her eyes immediately grow wide. She then looks back and forth at her dad and uncle standing next to each other.

    "There's two of us, huh?" the man identified as Herbie asks his niece. "You confused, ain't you?"

    The look of disbelief on her face has the room, and surely many more YouTube viewers, laughing along. Perhaps the highlight of the video is 35 seconds in, when the toddler offers a quick double take between her father and uncle.

    But in the end, the girl seems to come to terms with the situation. She allows Uncle Herbie to hold her. After her father takes her back into his arms, she gives her uncle a small high-five and fist bump.

    A version of the video popped up on the Internet in December, and another copy of it went viral over the

  • A dog is said to be man's best friend. Let's face it: Sometimes our friends think they're helping us out, when really they are not. That idea is illustrated in a new video that features a savvy pet and has been viewed over 1.2 million times.

    The clip was uploaded to YouTube over the weekend by user 'A1994B3'. In the description, he says that he is in the process of moving; thus, boxes are everywhere and the alarm clock is on the floor. Lately he's been waking up late and couldn't figure out why. It turns out his pet boxer, Kermit, heard the alarm and figured out that if he held his paw on the snooze button, the noise would stop.

    The video is a mere 14 seconds long. It takes Kermit acouple of tries, but eventually he figures out where the button is, presses it, and moves along as if nothing happened.  

    Despite the impressive alarm clock skills exhibited by the dog, some YouTube users are commenting about the user's house, alarm volume, and décor. The user explained that he is moving

  • A ventriloquist’s recent subway show could even put the grumpiest commuters in a better mood.

    Nigel Dunkley took his puppet and hopped on the D train heading downtown. The Hempstead, NY native walked on to the train with the doll in a suitcase, and as soon as he sat down, the act began.

    First the ventriloquist makes the puppet act like he is trying to break out of the luggage. Then Dunkley interchanges between his voice and the voice he uses for the doll, all while interacting with passengers on the train.

    The video is entitled, “Ventriloquist Picking Up Girls On The Subway,” and is quickly gaining popularity. The five-minute skit has 360,000 views on YouTube.

    And as the video title states, Dunkley does get a couple of numbers from women riding on the subway during his act. During the skit, we get to see most of the exchange with a woman named Kaitlin. When the puppet hands off Dunkley’s phone to her, she isn’t sure what to do.

    “Your number, stupid!” Dunkley replies – through the puppet of

  • It was love at first sight, or perhaps checkout, for a South Florida couple.

    Vladimir Romannikov proposed to his girlfriend Monica Dehombre in the Coral Gables Whole Foods, a year after they met at the store. Romannikov first saw his bride-to-be looking over kombucha tea labels. Dehombre was reading them intently.

    "I didn't even notice him," she admitted to WSVN-TV in Miami. "He was following me around the whole store, and we get to cash register two and he was like, 'So you shop all organic, huh?'"

    Not the most captivating pickup line, but it worked. The two struck up a conversation, walked to their cars together, and began dating.

    A year later, Romannikov called Whole Foods and asked them if the store could help out with his proposal. The supermarket obliged.

    "There was an announcement saying, 'Attention customers: Monica and Vladimir please report to register two,'" Dehombre recalled. "Then we started walking, and I heard John Legend's 'All of Me,' my favorite song, playing."

    By now, she

  • At first look you wouldn’t expect Molly Schuyler, a 120-pound mother of four, to finish off a 72-ounce steak at all, let alone in less than three minutes.

    But as the cliché goes: Don’t judge a book by its cover.

    Schuyler took the 72-ounce steak challenge at Sayler’s Old Country Kitchen in Portland, Ore. The challenge dates back to 1948. Sayler’s rules are fairly straightforward: You are served the steak, which can’t be cooked over medium rare, along with all of the fixings and a salad. If you can eat everything in an hour, without leaving your seat, you get the $65 meal for free.

    In addition to eating on the house, Schuyler shattered the world record for eating a 72-ounce steak by four minutes. She becomes the 11th woman of over 1,500 people who attempted the feat.

    Even more surprising: the steak didn’t completely satisfy the 34 year-old’s appetite. Schuyler ate a burger about an hour after finishing the challenge.

    “I was just born that way,” the Omaha, Neb., woman said to KPTV in Portland
