Nothing To See Here, Just Your Standard Horse On A Roof

Horse on a roof

It’s a rare, impressive instance in which a legitimate photograph outdoes a Photoshopped piece in all-around inconceivability, but I daresay this real-life horse on a roof does just that. Pat Downey’s brother-in-law Archie snapped this bizarre photo of one of Pat’s racing horses just hangin’ out on the roof of her New Brunswick farmhouse. Don’t worry, Must Win was safely removed (airlifted, perhaps?) from said roof shortly after said photograph was taken — but how in the world did he get there in the first place? Pat’s husband Stephen is convinced the colt, bored and lonely with the rest of his horse friends away for training, must have gotten on the roof by climbing a “small knoll” behind the home’s garage. “He’s like a two or three-year-old kid and he was just looking for some excitement and he got into trouble like a regular kid would do,” said Stephen. Just like a regular kid, but a horse kid. [Gawker]

Dancing Queen Bus Stop Lady Lands A Prestigious Theatre Part

Ellie Cole, Eastleigh's Dancing Queen, lands a new theatre gig
Truly The Dancing Queen!

Remember this unidentified lady, who was filmed dancing along to her headphones at a bus stop in the British town of Eastleigh? Well, unidentified no longer: her name is Ellie Cole, she’s a 35-year-old mum, and she wasn’t grooving along to ABBA’s “Dancing Queen” after all! It was actually Alesha Dixon’s “Knock Down” all along. Cole became an Internet sensation after the owner of the cafe across the street from the bus stop recorded her sweet moves and uploaded the clip to the web. It’s not every sensation that ends in a success story, but lo! The video helped Cole, a former performing arts major who was forced to resign due to financial reasons, score a (dancing!) part in a play at a prestigious theatre in her hometown. She will appear in the acclaimed musical Ah Men!, and says of her new role role, “It’s very flattering and humbling.” Dancing queen, indeed. [Gawker]

Man Gives Mega-Detailed Document To Ladies On Erroneous Assumption You Can Reason Your Way To Love

What you do if you received a disconcertingly detailed 99-page document about someone before you’d even been on one date with him? You wouldn’t go on that date, would you? You also might show that crazy thing to your friends, who might then forward it to Gawker, which is how we got the document that I am about to show you.

A man Gawker has dubbed “the Mad Bachelor of Australia” (or “Oz,” for short) is gaining viral fame for the massive document he’s been giving potential girlfriends in advance of their first date. (You can view the whole thing here.) In addition to information on his upbringing, education, and workout habits, it has an incredibly detailed checklist about what kind of woman he is looking for (no smokers, prudes or druggies!), what his penis is like (big!) and how he likes to have sex.

It’s sometimes hard to discern Joel McHale from his “Community” character, Jeff Winger. Both Jeff and Joel — the latter in this “viral” commercial for Nintendo 3DS — are smart, snarky know-it-alls. And both Jeff and Joel are so funny that we’d watch them do their taxes and probably get a laugh out of it. Here, Joel/Jeff schools a Nintendo exec on the art of the viral video and turns into the Mushroom King. Featuring cameos from Super Mario Bros. Mario and Luigi. [YouTube]
