If any of your Facebook friends are tweens — or adults with the emotional maturity of tweens — then you’ve surely noticed some drama going down in wall posts or status updates. A group called the Navy Seals of Comedy noticed, too, and thought the intensity of Facebook exchanges would translate well to a live reenactment. They turned a verbatim conversation between a few 7th graders into a script for a one-act play and the results are indeed dramatic. Also? Totally hilarious. [Buzzfeed]
We’re a little bit obsessed with Siku, the baby polar bear, here at The Frisky.

Check out a few more pics after the jump and at the link. [Zoo Borns] Keep reading »
Reason #3,091 that Michelle Obama is awesome: she kicks ass in a potato sack race! The First Lady invited Jimmy Fallon to the White House to film a “Late Night” segment about her Let’s Move campaign, which in addition to inspiring kids to exercise also gets celebs doing cute things while breaking a sweat. Jimmy needs some help in the push-up department, but at least Bo still gave him some congratulatory licks on the face. [Hulu]
File this one under convincing cases for the existence of the Illuminati: Vice took Nicki Minaj’s video for her new single “Super Bass” and slowed it down, only to discover that it sounds pitch-perfectly like … Jay-Z. You have to hear it to believe it because it’s uncanny, down to the Hov’s recognizable style and pace. A commenter went ahead and took the courtesy of speeding up a Jay-Z song to compare, and the results are alarming. I’m no conspiracy theorist, but hell if this isn’t spooky! Check out both videos for yourself, after the jump, and let me know what you think in the comments. [Vice] Keep reading »
Meet Jamar Rogers. He used to be a meth addict. He’s been sober for six years. He is HIV+. He can also sing his ass off. A few years ago, he auditioned for “American Idol” along with his best friend, Danny Gokey, who went on to third place that season. Danny’s story was powerful too — he was a young widower — and producers cut Jamar talking about his drug addict past out of the episode. This year, Jamar decided to audition for “The Voice,” and absolutely killed his rendition of The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army.” Best of all, his idol, Cee Lo Green, chose him for his team. With Cee Lo as his coach, I’ve got all my fingers and toes crossed that Jamar makes it to the end. Check out his blind audition above!
