Spielberg? Or Squirrel?

This one's a commercial just waiting to happen.

Someone left his GoPro camera on the ground near a tree.

A curious squirrel approached and decided he must have the GoPro - or, he mistook it for a shiny nut.

Either way, the squirrel nabbed the camera and scooted up a tree with it.

The footage is pretty amazing, even when the squirrel drops it to the ground.

Could be the rodent version of Stephen Spielberg here...

A Realistically Proportioned Fashion Doll

There's been a lot of pushback recently against the unrealistic proportions of Barbie dolls.

Except for those women who slave away to look like human Barbies, real women simply don't look like that.

So how would a "realistically proportioned fashion doll" fare in today's toy market?

Toy designer Nikolay Lamm aims to find out, with Lammily, a doll based on the proportions of the average 19-year-old woman.

To add to the realism, Lammily comes with stick-on tattoos, cellulite, stretch marks, scars and more.

Check out the video of a bunch of school kids getting to meet Lammily and compare her to a normal Barbie doll. It's pretty interesting...

Even Worse Than Misfit, These Toys Are Bad

A consumer advocacy group called WATCH - World Against Toys Causing Harm - this week issued its list of the Ten Worst Toys of 2014.

The worst, according to WATCH, is the Air Storm Firetek Bow, which can shoot arrows up to 145 feet.

There's also the Catapencil, an actual pencil with a slingshot at the top - surefire classroom fun right there.

A Battle Hammer designed for three-year-olds - the ones who think they're Thor, I guess.

The SWAT Electric Machine Gun was in the middle of the list. Surprising, really, when you consider the manufacturer's warning that it could be mistaken for the real thing by law enforcement personnel.

You can check out the full list in this article in The Daily Mail.

And check out the video of the press conference...

One Winner Means Lots of Losers

On Jimmy Kimmel Live the other night, Jimmy got to break the news that Chris Hemsworth is People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive in 2014.

So, he's the winner.

Which means, every other man on the planet is the loser.

Like Jason Bateman, who thought he'd been invited to appear on Kimmel's show because he was going to get the award.

To make him feel better, Jimmy let Jason read his acceptance speech, which he'd prepared in anticipation of winning the award.

(For the record, Jason's an underrated comic actor...)

Fearsome Foursome

I just stumbled on this video - it's been floating around cyberspace for a few months - but it's mesmerizing.

The quartet is called Salut Salon - based in Hamburg, Germany, they mix classical music with some comedic stylings.

Playing another's instrument with her own bow, playing the piano upside down, playing their stringed instruments inverted...

They never miss a step or skip a note. Watch it once, and tell me that's enough!

"America Loves You"

Give Jay Leno a hand.

He recently visited Afghanistan, performing for the troops in a USO show.

He came home wanting to do more. So he and the folks at The Today Show selected an active service member who was also a wounded warrior, and gave him a joy ride to remember.

Check out the video as Jay drove Corporal Ethan Laberge on the back roads around Fort Campbell, Kentucky in a brand-new 2015 Dodge HRT Hellcat - the muscle car of muscle cars.

And at the end of the ride...

You just have to watch it for yourself. And grab a hankie.

Drug Deal caught on LIVE TV!!!

Thursday November 20

We told you yesterday that Thor was People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive. They chose Chris Hemsworth. Well we've heard that People has asked Ryan Gosling several times to be its Sexiest Man Alive, but he turned them down every time because he's, "too artsy." But the magazine was quick to note that this year's, Chris was their first choice. Side note, every year, when People names its Sexiest Man Alive, Esquire names its Sexiest Woman Alive. They voted Penelope Cruz into their top spot.

Tyga pulled a no-show for a club appearance when the place shot down his demands to get his underage "friend" Kylie Jenner into a West Hollywood night club. Tyga begged the promoters to get 17-year-old Kylie admitted -- calling several times throughout the day. He even pushed his arrival time to 1:30am while trying to negotiate with the manager.

Shailene Woodley is 23 years old and she's done something no actress has ever done. She's lost her fictional virginity five times. On the TV show "The Secret Life of the American Teenager", and in the movies "The Fault In Our Stars", "Divergent", "White Bird in a Blizzard", and "The Spectacular Now".

Taylor Swift made Billboard history this week, by beating HERSELF for the #1 song. "Blank Space" replaced "Shake It Off" at the top of the chart, making her the first woman in Billboard Hot 100 history to ever do that. By the way, on the album chart, "1989" took the #1 spot for a third straight week.

In today's most bizzare Big Fat Rumor of the Day, Olympic Gold medal winner Michael Phelps' girlfriend Taylor Lianne Chandler revealed on Facebook that she was actually born a boy named David Roy Fitch. As a teenager, Taylor went on testosterone blockers and had her name changed and then, in her early twenties, underwent corrective surgery to get rid of her male genitalia. They met on Tinder and she says she never lied to him about her past, saying it just never came up.

Taryn Manning plays the meth-using, born-again Christian "Pennsatucky" on "Orange Is the New Black" and she used to be friends with a woman named Jeanine Heller. But they had a major falling out. They have a mutual restraining order against each other, but they're both violating it. In September, Jeanine was arrested for harassing Taryn by calling and emailing her "hundreds of times." And now, Taryn has been accused of threatening Jeanine through text messages and social media, saying things like, "I will kill you, b****" and "Go f*** yourself and die." Well, Taryn failed to show up in court to defend herself, so the judge cited her for contempt, and she was arrested. On Twitter, Taryn blasted the reports on her arrest, and insisted that SHE'S the victim.

#TBT: The Carlton Dance, & More

This one's an oldie but goodie - I missed it last year, so maybe you did too.

Even if you saw it, it's fun to watch again.

Will Smith and his son Jaden visited the BBC's Graham Norton Show and got a little musical.

Jaden did a little rap while his dad did some beats in the background.

Then Will brought out DJ Jazzy Jeff and the three of them performed the rap theme song from Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

And then, a little frosting on the cake as DJ Jazzy Jeff cranked up Tom Jone's "It's Not Unusual." Alfonso Ribeiro joined them, and everybody did The Carlton.

Check it out. It's a lot of fun.

Seven Feet & Counting

Parts of Buffalo and upstate New York were positively buried in a storm some are calling Snovember early this week.

But that doesn't stop the train that is professional sport from rolling, does it?

On Tuesday, the night of the storm, 6200 fans made it out to see the Buffalo Sabres in action.

And now, the Buffalo Bills and the NFL are looking for some help, digging Ralph Wilson Stadium out from under the snow in time for the Bills to play the New York Jets over the weekend.
  If you do well, they could pick up your option for future storms and years. Who knows? You could be a Hall of Fame Shoveler at some point in your future.

Meanwhile, if you want to get a sense of what it's like to be in the middle of something like that, check out this drone's-eye view of the event...
