Okay, it isn’t the real Mitt Romney, but a man wearing a Mitt Romney mask, robbed a bank in Virginia this past week. The man took money from all five tellers before fleeing. A A strange fact, this is the same bank where someone robbed it wearing a Hillary Clinton mask, two years ago.
Two elephants drank vodka to survive, after the trailer they were in caught fire in freezing cold, Siberia. Their handler, quickly bought two cases of vodka, and mixing it with water, had the elephants drink it. In the end it probably saved their lives. They only had a little frost bite on their ears and trunks. The elephants are on tour with the circus, and the show must go on.
Smashing pigs with a hammer, New York tradition
A New York tradition at Christmas, isn’t exactly the first thing you think about during the holidays. Saratoga Sweets, in Halfmoon, New York carries on a Christmas tradition, of pink peppermint pigs. The hard candy pigs are selling like hot chocolate on a cold winter day. The best part, these piggies are sold with a little hammer to crush them. They are considered good luck, to smash them apart after Christmas.
Can’t say I’ve ever wanted to see what a giant replica of the human colon looks like, better yet, want to sleep in one, but it exists. The lovely hotel, is located on a small island near Antwerp, Belgium. On the outside, its exactly what it looks like, a giant human colon replica. On the inside, it’s actually cozy, clean and livable. What was once just an art piece, it is now been turned into a hotel. Surprisingly, all the reviews have been positive.
Canon shoots cans of Pot into the USA
I’ve heard of elaborate plans to smuggle Marijuana across borders, but this one is the coolest. About 30 cans filled with pot, were shot out of some sort of canon from Mexico, into Arizona, USA. The value is estimated at $42,500.
Trisha Paytas got such a poor reception after her YouTube declaration in support of Mitt Romney you might wonder why she bothered uploading another political-themed video. Of course, you can’t discourage a Republican with such unbridled enthusiasm (even after a loss) and little knowledge U.S. politics to infect the Internet.
In the video, the stripper turned Internet star explains how Romney still WON in her world because he’s way hotter and richer than Obama. You could even call her a #groupie4lyfe.
“Congratulations to all of you who wanted him to win,” she said to Obama supporters. “Now you can all go have frivolous sex over the next four years and take birth control and have abortions and YAY!”
Considering her former profession you’d think she’d understand the importance of protection for any unintended dangerous situations but that’s a whole other debate. She went one step further and implied everyone watching her video would hate it because they’re clearly all unemployed Obama supporters on welfare (Romney supporters are too busy with their important jobs to watch her videos).
In the end there’s no use getting upset over such an asinine video except if you think about the people who take it seriously. Plus, according to Paytas, the world is going to end in December just like the Mayans predicted so we won’t have to put up with her YouTube channel much longer.

While Barack Obama was having Hammertime last night Mitt Romney broke out a surprisingly chipper song. Remember guys! Even though he didn’t win, he’s still FILTHY RICH!! He won’t get the power he so craved, but he’ll always have his beautiful voice and fat bank account. Schmoyoho edited Romney in this hypothetical speech in which he congratulates President Obama on his victory.
He sings: “I never really wanted that low wage “president” job to taint my career/ Besides, who on Earth could possibly get by on 400,000 dollars a year?/ Now that I’m done pretending to have fun spending time with the plebeians/ My speaking fee will multiply by three – so if you ask me, we won!”
So if you’re worrying about him being out of a job and being struck with poverty like a lot of other people in the world then fear not, he’s probably being served freshly prepared breakfast on silver plates while reading an ironed out copy of The New York Times.

I’ve always imagined what life would be like if we randomly broke out in song whenever something momentous happened in our lives. You could break out your happy songs for new jobs or relationships and slow ballads for when life is the sh*ts.
If life was like that, I just know Obama would have sung MC Hammer’s “Can’t Touch This” in his war room last night upon hearing the good news. Fortunately, Barack Dubs edited the re-elected president to sing the song so we wouldn’t have to imagine it.

Right about now, I’m pretty sure most people are tired of the hooplah surrounding the upcoming presidential election. Unless you’re the type of person who just gets kicks over all the Republican versus Democrat jabs, endless parodies and CNN specials. Well, four-year-old Abigael has just had enough of the whole thing. Her mom recorded her bawling her eyes out over Mitt Romney and
Bronco Bamma Barack Obama.
Her mom reassures her: “It’ll be over soon Abbey.”
Let’s assess some other times the presidential hopefuls have made kids cry:

Still undecided about who to vote for in the 2012 presidential election? Joss Whedon has some advice for you. The Avengers director insists you vote for Mitt
Zomney Romney because the Republicans’ promises will guarantee poverty, unemployment, overpopulation and rioting — elements that are crucial to creating a chaotic wasteland.
Zombies will run rampant in Mitt’s apocalyptic vision and you’ll have to start hoarding canned goods. The one percent will no longer be the very rich, it will be the very fast. On the bright side, Whedon says, we can all stop pretending this facade of caring for each other is real.
Vote #Zomney. Because he needs brains.

Kids these days!! These two preschoolers were caught on camera fighting over presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. The petty fight starts with them claiming sides and ends with the Mitt Romney supporter proclaiming his victory and throwing a hard toy in the face of his nemesis. The Obama supporter then starts crying.
The mom posted the video on YouTube with the description: “I had no idea they had ever heard of Romney or Obama! Didn’t know they were learning about politics in preschool!” ADORBZ.
Life has come full circle with the third and final songified version of the presidential debate (find one and two here). If you didn’t have time to watch it last night, this version by Gregory Brothers pretty much gives you the gist of it while being super epic. The brothers also songified “Oh My Dayum,” and Kristen Bell’s sloth meltdown.
Best part has to be the creepy and unnatural singing by debate moderator Bob Schieffer.
Watch it here:
This is what the Internet took from last night’s presidential debate, after Obama responded to Mitt Romney’s comment that the US Navy is smaller now that at any time since 1917. Obama said: “We also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military’s changed. We have these things called aircraft carriers, where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines.” Obama also called Romney out on the fact that the military is not a game of Battleship where we’re counting ships.
If Romney and Obama played a game of Battleship, who do you think would win?
On the latest episode of TheFineBros‘ “Kids React!” children take on the election, debates and political promises. Most of them are pretty upset about Mitt Romney’s plan to get rid of Big Bird and all of them have something thoughtful to say.
“They’re like five year olds fighting over a toy, but the toy is America,” said one of the kids. I wonder how much these kids learned on their own and how much has been fed to them by their parents. Still, I’m pretty impressed by how much they know!

Since Romney’s comment last night about having “binders full of women” being brought to him when he was governor, the Internet has been going meme-crazy.
Rommey was attempting to answer an audience question about how he would ”rectify the inequalities in the workplace.” When he took over as Massachusetts governor, he said ”I had the chance to pull together a Cabinet, and all the applicants seemed to be men,” he said. “I went to a number of women’s groups and said, ‘Can you help us find folks?’ and they brought us whole binders full of women.”
Barack Obama did a duet with Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney for his latest baracksdubs single. The two nominees took on Katy Perry’s “Hot N Cold.” The two have been really big in the music circuit lately — just yesterday we saw them do an epic rap battle with each other!
Instead of long BORING debates, future presidential candidates should just have intense rap battles to help people decide who to vote for. Plus, it’s the only way you’ll see Barack Obama refer to his crotch as a stimulus package.
Alphacat takes on Obama and EpicLLOYD throws on a wig for the part of Romney in this showdown. The two guys spew out accusations about each other’s shortcomings before Abraham Lincoln (played by Nice Peter) puts everything in perspective.
ERB has previously done epic rap battles between Steve Jobs versus Bill Gates, Cleopatra versus Marilyn Monroe and Hitler versus Vader. Seriously though, there are definitely nuggets of truth in this battle, which is why we love it so much!

While many people are bashing this video, in which a stripper turned Internet star explains why she’s voting for Republican candidate Mitt Romney, Democrats couldn’t be happier. If this is the face of Romney’s campaign, surely it will encourage more people to vote for Barack Obama, right?
Paytas describes herself on Twitter as a mix between Woody Allen and your friendly neighbourhood hooker. In her video “Why I’m Voting For Mitt Romney” she forewarns people that she doesn’t really follow politics (she didn’t watch the debate but knows there was something about Big Bird and Romney won, “yeah!!”). She says she’s voting Romney because he’s HAWT and her kitten is named Mitts, so it’s DEFINITELY a sign. “We haven’t really had a hot president since Kennedy, but we all know how that ended, so yeah.”
If this is an Internet troll then we bow down to her but if she’s serious, I’m shaking my head at her with a look of haughty derision.
Based on her other videos, it looks like Paytas is a “personality” and playing up to a character. Still, it’s a pretty sad portrait of a misinformed, superficial anti-intellectual — why would she want to play this character at all?

This morning we posted a 121 second highlight reel of last night’s presidential debate, but if that’s still too boring and you prefer a little music with your dose of daily politics, check out this songified version.
We knew it would happen, but we’re impressed it happened so fast. The debate highlights were chosen and songified by the Gregory Brothers, of course. The brothers also songified “Oh My Dayum,” and Kristen Bell’s sloth meltdown. This politico version is a little skewed in Barack’s favor, but we’ll take it. [Hair swap photo by @shelbywhite]

Last night you were so busy writing your essay on deforestation and preparing subpar noodles for dinner that you just couldn’t tune into the presidential debate. Fortunately for you, NowThis News has created a helpful (and most importantly short) recap of the entire discussion so you’ll get the gist of what went down between hopefuls Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.
The 121-second clip goes over the best jokes, promises and criticisms raised so you can pretend you watched the entire 90 minute discussion when your colleague asks if you’re a well informed politico. Still, we really do recommend you watch the whole thing before voting.
Did you watch the debate? What did you think of their performances?
Watch it here:
President Barack Obama is well known for his remixes, which includes Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend,” Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” and LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It.” Now he’s taking on Jay-Z’s classic hit “99 Problems.”
Whereas Jay-Z has 99 problems but a bitch ain’t one, Obama has 99 problems but Mitt’s not one. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney also makes a cameo, spewing out a few lines in the role of “the police officer” (it’s a bit role, really). We really wish there was a radio version.
Watch it here:
fair and balanced people at Fox News were attempting to do a serious interview with a newly graduated college student about (surprise) why he’s now supporting Mitt Romney instead of Barack Obama. The interview by Fox and Friends’ Gretchen Carlson, was supposed to be all about how recent grads who are struggling to find jobs are swapping their vote, but it became pretty clear that interviewee Max Rice was there to prank the show. Meanwhile, all Rice wanted to talk about was how he couldn’t believe he finally made it to prime time and was talking to Miss USA Miss America.
While most of the propagandists at Fox are probably shaking their almighty heads like they’ve been wronged, we think this guy is genius. The whole interview shows 1) How uninformed the reporting on Fox is 2) How some people will base their votes on insignificant reasons like losing a basketball game.
