For animals who spend so much time in water, you’d almost think otters were born with the ability to swim!
But like humans, they have to learn the hard way.
Watch Mollala the Baby River Otter take on the water as her mother throws her in the water to force her to learn. Yes, it looks a little brutal and scary. But hey, results show that it works!!
P.S. This kind of looks like the times my mom dragged me to the shower when I was a kid…
There’s nothing like being a kid jumping in puddles on a rainy day: you don’t really mind getting wet at all or ruining the clothes you just got for your birthday (they were the worst gifts ever).
But when you’re all grown up, you start getting really self-conscious about your clothes. Case in point: this guy was given a dollar to jump into a puddle with his new shoes on.
Okay, I know it doesn’t sound that exciting but just watch as he almost drowns in it. The icing on the cake though is how his friend who’s filming reacts. Forget trying to help your friend, just dropping to the floor dying of laughter sounds like a better idea because not going to lie, I would do the same, bud.
ESPN went the musical route for the famed sports outlet’s magazine version this month. But to keep in touch with their roots, they decided to recreate famous album covers with some famous athletes. Soccer player Alex Morgan sits pretty as Katy Perry, sprinter Allyson Felix gets bootylicious as Beyoncé and Ryan Lochte is the baby from Nirvana’s Nevermind album.
Yes, you read that right and yes, Nirvana and Ryan Lochte were i the same sentence.
Here’s his ESPN photo:
and here’s the original:
Thankfully, and unlike his baby counterpart, Lochte did not drop trou for the occasion but he did managed to get a pretty spot on baby expression. Actually, who are we kidding? Lochte only has two facial expressions: utter confusion and stupid confidence. No wonder he nails it.
Some may call Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte “America’s hero” but others clearly think of him as a fame whore-douchebag. Not only is his signature saying, “Jeah” (take a moment and scream Lil Jon’s “YEAHH” in your head), he looks like a total frat boy and currently picking up any endorsement he can get his hands on.
The Second City Network put together a hilarious parody of the many examples why Lochte sucks at doing commercials. Not that his oily chest and pretty eyes weren’t distracting enough, the responses he gives back to the director are total NO-NO’s. In fact, Lochte really did do commercials for Gatorade, Gillette and AT&T in the past.
I wonder what else will be in the works for Ryan Lochte, post-Olympics? Possibly Dancing with the Stars?
With the Olympics undergo, we’ve already had quite the share of hilarious moments from parent’s reactions. Remember Aly Raisman? Her parents seemed like they kinda had to pee mixed with being on a roller coaster as she was doing her thing.
Most recently, Michael Phelps was competing in the 200-metre butterfly when the camera panned over to his mother in the stands. I guess she was so used to him scooping up all those gold medals, that she got a little ahead of herself and reacted as if he won first place! Awkward… I mean silver is still amazing and something him and Team USA should be proud of. Chad le Clos ended up taking home the gold! I kinda feel bad for her but what can you do? Phelps currently holds the record with the most medals, having 19.
Because Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Call Me Maybe’ just keeps on inspiring covers and parodies, it appears the 2012 Summer Olympic Games has also caught on with the trend.
In light of Michael Phelps’ major upset yesterday when teammate Ryan Lochte defeated him in the 400m Individual Medley race, the people at NOC have brought us a hilarious parody that pokes fun of the two swimmers’ rivalry.
The song definitely suggests Lochte’s darker side in defeating his 14-time Olympic champion teammate. Despite being friends in real life, the song sung in the perspective of Lochte features lyrics like:
“I’m in a personal hell/ I kind of hate Michael Phelps/I wish he’d drown in a well/ That dude is in my way
When I first saw that guy swim/ He got nothing but wins/I could’ve sworn he had fins/ But now he’s in my way.”
But enough about Lochte’s feelings. I want to hear a song featuring Phelps’ reply after losing last night.
David Arquette made a splash Friday night at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, Radar Online reports.
Arquette apparently rented a cabana at the Roosevelt’s pool and invited some “female friends” along for the party. Arquette was apparently very animated and flirtatious with the ladies, dancing and goofing off like a fifth grader.
An eyewitness reports that “[Arquette] started to hop from pool chair to pool chair while playing air guitar to ‘Sweet Child of Mine.’ One jump too many and David jumped on the next chair which was where I was sitting. He landed right on me and then fell into the pool! Boy, was he blowing off some steam.”
Geez, David. Would you like to borrow a megaphone so that you can ensure your “I AM OVER COURTENEY COX” reaches everyone on earth?
