Cool Things From the Web This Week

Standard

Each week I get sent a bunch of great links from the web via Facebook, and this week I decided that it’s time I start sharing some of them with you.

Enjoy!

The Amazing Emotional Baby

What started out to be a home video shared with family and friends has turned into an internet phenomenon garnering over 21 million views. Mommy sings. Baby cries. She certainly is emotional. Some say she’s an old soul, perceptive beyond her years. Or maybe she’s an empath. Or maybe it’s gas. We don’t know. We don’t care. People are watching it and sharing in droves.

The Not Crying Cat

Things are different with cats. 67 views. No tears. You do the math.

These Girls Are Monsters

When did the women’s Halloween costume market transform into a completely sexualized affair? I must have not been paying attention. Do female firefighters really wear such short skirts?

If this doesn’t make you feel good, I don’t know what else to say…

Threw it On the Ground

First time I saw this, I thought, hysterical. What a fantastic satire on the angry rapper. It’s catching fire among the kids now. Ever seen a bunch of ten year old boys getting excited about a video that shows someone throwing everything they can get their hands on to the ground? Uh huh. Did I mention I’m a mom? Feel sorry for me yet?
