  • We don't live in the prehistoric age. Dinosaurs don't exist anymore. So why did Steven Spielberg kill a triceratops?

    Turns out lots of non-"Jurassic Park" fans on Facebook didn't realize that Jay Branscomb was joking when he posted a "disgraceful" photo of a "despicable man" — namely director Steven Spielberg — posing with a poached triceratops. It's been shared over 30,000 times! One Facebook commenter who was in the dark about the animal's extinction wrote, "Disgusting! I bet he only kept the horns!"

    Earlier this month, a Texas cheerleader uploaded pictures from an actual hunting trip in Africa on Facebook. Kendall Jones caused an uproar, beaming next to animal carcasses. Those game pics were aptly removed by Facebook.

    As for Spielberg's still from the movie shoot, it's still going around social circles. So, is common comedic sense extinct? Share your thoughts with us on Facebook or Twitter.

  • Hey, girl.

    Actually, the guy in this video is Matt Bittner, actor and sound designer. His friend recorded him between shifts at The Ride, an interactive New York City tour bus. So exciting!

    The video was featured on Reddit's front page and garnered more than 4,000 upvotes in just 15 hours. One redditor said, "Man I want to learn how to do this just to totally creep my wife out." Another redditor said, "Now I feel bad for Manti Te'o I would fall for this."

    Bittner tweeted earlier Thursday about his surprise.

    Yup, if you close your eyes, you wouldn't know the difference.

    Bittner tells us Trending it's been his lifelong dream to do cartoon voiceover work. He played a girl in an all-male cast during college, and hence the character behind "girl voice" was born.

  • U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry showed off his diplomatic guitar skills in Beijing, China, on Thursday.

    At the urging of Chinese Vice Premier Liu Yandong, Kerry sat down with an acoustic guitar for some nation-building finger picking, playing several bars of an unidentified tune after a lunch at the Great Hall of the People, part of the 5th annual U.S.-China People-to-People Exchange.

    Kerry delighted a small group of diplomats, who called for the 70-year-old to play some more. The secretary of shred obliged, ending his encore with a traditional American rock-n-roll move: a major-chord ending.

    The impromptu performance was captured on cellphone video and posted to the State Department's YouTube channel.

    Kerry also tweeted a photo of his axe-work.


    It's not the first time Kerry has shown off his guitar

  • If you're following one newscast, "you must get out of Canada!"

    In a fake but adorable broadcast of the so-called VCN breaking news, pint-sized presenters claim that the country is dangerous. This show, produced by the husband-and-wife team of Black Hat Media Utah, has been watched over 30,000 times. Nieces Libby, 7, and Sarah, 5, toss back and forth on "right now's news," reading without a prompter. The girls apparently got a green screen and wanted to play around with the technology.

    Viewers on YouTube have found it hilarious, with one commenting, "Hope everyone got out of Canada ok."

    But why the Canada bashing? you ask. A weather specialist came to Libby's school and left a big impression of the country on her.

    Tornados aside, we're advised by these aspiring journalists not to leave anything behind in weather disasters — especially your fridge. Thanks for the tips, ladies! You have a great broadcasting future ahead of you — maybe not in Canada, though. #sorrynotsorry
