  • “Sesame Street” has been on a roll with its parody videos, tackling everything from Oscar-winning movies to a Netflix hit show. Now it is stepping into the Marvel Universe, with Cookie Monster playing the lead in “Aveggies: The Age of Bon Bon.”

    When an evil villain attempts to turn all vegetables into dessert, the Aveggies must work together to defeat him. The cute spoof recasts the “Avengers” heroes as Onion Man, Captain Americauliflower, and the Black Bean Widow. And, of course, Cookie Monster becomes Dr. Brownie.

    Technically, this video teaches kids about self-control and staying focused, as we watch Dr. Brownie get distracted from the task at hand. His job is to “Turn green, get big, and eat giant cookie ship” to defeat the evil Bon Bon.

    Besides the wonderful food puns, the best part of the video is when Cookie Monster Hulks out and eats the big ship in the shape of a chocolate-chip cookie. Whether Hulked out or not, Cook

  • Comedian Tamale Rocks made a pretty shocking discovery in the bathroom of the Cigar and Stripes bar in Chicago.

    After noticing a full-length mirror across from the women’s toilet,  she poked around and discovered that it was a two-way mirror.

    “I noticed a full-length mirror opposite of the toilet,” Rocks wrote on YouTube “Curious, I explored and discovered that it was two-way mirror, the door behind it cut away to allow an unobstructed view of the toilet ... and anyone who may be using it.”

    Rocks documented her unpleasant discovery and posted it on Facebook on Sunday. But after the video hit 4,000 views in 20 hours, she uploaded it to YouTube, where it has already topped 1.6 million views.

    The bar owner, Ronnie Lottz, has come out defending his decision to have a two-way mirror in the women’s bathroom.

    He told the website Jezebel that the mirror has been there nearly 15 years and that he would rather burn the bar to the ground than get rid of the mirror.

    “We’re synonymous with

  • Blink, and you might miss Collin Burns solve a Rubik’s Cube at record-breaking speed.

    At 5.25 seconds, this teen set a new world record for solving a traditional 3x3x3 Rubik’s Cube. Collin’s record time was established during the finals of an official Rubik’s Cube competition on Saturday at Central Bucks West High School in Doylestown, Pa.

    The previous world record of 5.55 seconds was set by Mats Valk in the Netherlands in 2013.

    A World Cube Association representative confirmed to Mashable on Sunday that Collin has officially broken the record: “Although this result has not been uploaded to the WCA database just yet, we can confirm that this is (or will be soon) the new official WCA world record for the 3x3x3 single-solve category. To our best knowledge, it has been performed in an official competition, with all the rules being followed, even the scramble has been checked for its correctness.”

    Congratulations, Collin!

  • Charlie Kwentus knows that he won’t be around to dance with his two daughters at their weddings, but a local nonprofit is helping to grant this man his dying wish.

    “I won’t be able to walk them down the aisle at their weddings,” Kwentus, 42, told KSDK. “But, yes, I will get this.”

    Charlie was diagnosed with a brain tumor when he was 26, and he decided to stop treatment about two years ago.

    “I just decided, and my family backed me on it, that it was time to quit. You know, quality verses quantity,” Kwentus said.

    Since then Charlie and his family — his wife, Courtney Beers, and their two daughters, Maren and Zoe — have been getting in as much quality time together as possible, including a three-week road trip around the western United States.

    “We feel like we’re building a bank of memories that will last a lifetime,” Beers told KSDK, “They have to last a lifetime.”

    When they returned from their trip, Annie’s Hope, a local nonprofit organization that helps bereaved children, helped set up
