The YouTube video, 'There was an incident last night at CVS,' doesn't quite capture the hilarious and puzzling nature of what is contained within, but it's at least a start. According to uploader Aplue, around 50 ducks entered the pharmacy in Saratoga Springs, NY, last week. There is a park down the street where the ducks live most of the time, but somehow they managed to sneak past the front door and hold an impromptu shopping spree. In addition to the ones inside, there were dozens more outside the store as well. After using a swiffer to try to shoo them out, one enterprising employee was able to lure them out with a bag of popcorn. And really, who doesn't love popcorn?Read More »from New York CVS Overrun with Duck Invasion

Even though it appears on subscriber cable, "Homeland" is a cultural sensation among critics and viewers. And "Sesame Street," which is known for tapping into the Zeitgeist, has just proved how big a mark "Homeland" has made. In "Homelamb," a group of sheep is looking to catch the Big Bad Wolf, much like Carrie Mathison's tireless effort to catch Abu Nazir and, earlier, Nicholas Brody. Or, in the case of "Sesame Street," Nicholas Baaa-rody. Actually, throughout "Homelamb," there are a lot of baaas all around. The spoof begins with a spot-on interpretation of the Showtime series' intro, complete with black-and-white archival footage and jazz music. And all the characters are there — Saaa-ul, Caaa-rrie, and of course, Baaa-rody.
The spoof reminded us of some of "Sesame Street's" other great parody videos, which number in the dozens. Here are a few of our favorites.
