Lindsay Lohan’s much buzzed about hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend turned out to be a bit of a dud. The skits were weak and LiLo relied heavily on cue cards to remember her lines. There was one gem, however: “The Real Housewives Of Disney,” a spoof on the Bravo series. Watch the clip above and then check out an awesome GIF of the best moment after the jump! Keep reading »
There’s really nothing cuter than an adorable penguin mugging for the camera. Except maybe two adorable penguins mugging for the camera.

Not only can Flo the Wonderdog do a great jump off a high-dive board, but she’s also a pro when it comes to scrambling up the diving board ladder. She’s also not afraid of the pool slide, and skitters down it like a champ. Color us impressed. [Boing Boing]
