    You may have been inundated with the engagements and proposals of your friends and family on social media this holiday season. For the most part, the occasions are pretty happy events.

    But some people’s reactions are even more intense and emotional than expected. Take this gal, for instance, who was clearly not expecting this romantic surprise.

    In the video of her Christmas Day proposal, the woman’s boyfriend gifted her a box of letters that spelled out “Will you marry me.” She stays pretty cool until she gets to the letter y. Then she becomes overwhelmed with emotion.

    She ended up saying yes, but we hope the next time her fiancé asks a question, it’s a little less intense.

  • Everyone wants a piece of his or her favorite sports star.

    Unfortunately, for this poor gentleman, his stolen little moment with a Pacers player was caught on camera.

    He, his friends and his family will forever be able to view his deep whiff of forward center Lavoy Allen’s sweaty jersey.

    Observe as he leans in, inhales deeply and really savors the waft of what is most likely a pretty musty scent.
    His facial reaction seems to suggest that the jersey didn’t smell like a rose, but maybe a basketball player’s scent is more like a fine wine and will only get better with time. But probably not.

    The next time this fan needs a souvenir, we recommend that he head to the gift shop.

  • The world has been in need of a superhero monkey, and we may have just found him. A simian in India is being hailed a hero following a harrowing incident at a train station in Kanpur on Dec. 21. When his fellow primate was electrocuted and fell unconscious after walking on high-voltage wires, the rescue monkey went into action. First he tried rubbing and patting the other monkey, and then moved on to a more drastic measure — dipping him in nearby water. Train passengers looked on while snapping photos and shooting video of the incredible rescue. After about 20 minutes, the injured monkey started to show signs of life. From the looks of it, it seems like he will be all right.

  • Are you looking for a last-minute Christmas gift for your kangaroo? Probably not, but if you were, you should definitely cross a drone off your list. It goes without saying that kangaroos are not animals you want to mess with. One unfortunate drone operator learned that the hard way while on a mission to film a group of the marsupials in the wine region of Hunter Valley in Australia. When the drone came in for a close-up shot, one member of the pack who wanted its privacy respected, used a very kangaroo-like method of dealing with the device — by punching it to the ground.

    The protective Joey damaged the drone, but luckily for us the footage was recovered. We should mention that it could have ended much worse for the drone — remember the viral video of the kangaroo street brawl?
