Week in WTF?!

| No Comments

By which we mean, of course, "Wow, that's fascinating!" Because during the last few days -- Wednesday, Thursday, Friday -- what tom-foolery has taken place out on the Interwebs. Here's a look at the things that have caused us to say, "Whee! That's funny!"



Baby Oprah


This little boy telling the story of Jack and the Beanstalk sounds a lot like Oprah giving away a bunch of new cars. He got FIIIVE MAGIC BEEEEANNNNS! And a bean for you and a bean for you and a bean for you.



Next in cute kid videos...


Watch this adorable kid get eaten by a lion. Well not quite, but were it not for that thin layer of glass, that kid's head would be lunch.




One match you don't want to be matched with


This woman's video for eHarmony surely must make her matches consider reevaluating their preferences. Must love cats? Maybe not so much.

Fish & Chips anyone?


A mysterious 55 foot sea monster washed ashore in China this past week. The creature is said to weigh about 4.5 tons and is so badly decomposed that it is difficult to determine what type of animal it might be. Despite the horrible smell, locals are flocking to the beach to see what all the fuss is about. It's a whale of a mystery.



"No colleagues knew my mission, and some of them froze there in seeing me approach. Some were even screaming for being scared."


That's what 25-year-old Wang Kang tells London's The Daily Mail of the reaction from his co-workers when he walked into the office in a full replica of the MK I suit from 2008's Marvel Comic blockbuster "Iron Man."


And you thought you were cool wearing flip flops for casual Friday.


Wang, a Shanghai, China, telecom company employee, spent about three months and $450 constructing the MK I suit, which weighs in at 110 lbs. His next project? To perfect the craft and get the foam and rubber build down in weight so he can work on a MK II suit replica of course.


Aside from fighting supervillians in his mind while trying to type in the beast of a suit, there apparently is a benefit most people might not immediately assume - the chicks dig it.


"They said I am a happy and creative man, and they wanted to know me," he said of the apparently hard-to-please dating pool in Shanghai.


Good luck with that, Wang.

Cone-ing

While everyone else is out planking, this guy just created the new "cool" thing to do.

That is one big baby

Literally.

Safety helmet

While Rahm Emanuel just announced a new "protected" bike lane in Chicago, the bicyclists in New York have to put up with things like this.

X-Men Born This Way

Technically, the X-Men are mutants which would mean that they weren't really born that way, they mutated that way. *Nerd Alert*

The Second Coming

Jesus may have walked on water, but this kid just vogue-ed on water. Maybe those rapture people weren't so crazy after all.

Tornado damage for elephants

An elephant in Joplin, Missouri helps clear debris from the tornado damaged town. The sight of an elephant in Missouri is strange enough, but seeing it pull a car from the rubble is just plain crazy. It's about time those lazy elephants lifted a finger to help out.

Synchronized canoeing

It's sexy, it's extreme, it's kind of mesmerizing. Move over rugby. Freestyle canoeing could be the next Olympic sport.

060311wtf.jpg Gang smiles

Gang signs are soo last year. Now everyone is throwing gang smiles. At least, that's what this high school seemed to think when they banned this girl's yearbook photo, comparing her goofy grin to gang symbols.

Molester Jester

At first I wasn't sure what was creepier: the clowns in this video, or the guy whose apartment the video was filmed in. But after seeing that he named one of the clowns "Molester Jester," I'm thinking it's probably the guy that people should be worried about.

The wonders of live television

You never know who might crash your interview. The best part is how no one seems to acknowledge that this old man is right on camera, making animal noises.
