1. Duck Army

This is just grand. What looks like a squeak toy has gone viral this week with it’s terrifying scream. But what happens when you press down on a cart full of them? Absolute hell.

2. Kanye runs for President West/Z 2020? Maybe so. At the VMA’s Sunday night, Kanye West ended his near 13-minute Video Vanguard Award acceptance speech with plans to run for president next time around. West, an absolute familiar to publicity stunts, had a fairly inspiring speech. But someone also superimposed his speech over the Seinfeld intro and it’s the best thing ever.

3. Kermit’s new bae Speaking of publicity stunts, ABC is going absolutely nutso with the new Muppets television show. It began with the separation of Kermit and his longtime beau Ms. Piggy, and is coming to a head with the introduction of Denise (who the Internet is saying looks a lot like Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer. I don’t see it). This show is sure to be a ratings monster, maybe.


4. Cat brain freeze Note: a little bit of ice cream will not harm your cat, but please, don’t go crazy with this. No one likes animal cruelty. Anyway, Vines have been circling the web of people giving their cats brain freezes and it’s… weird? The cats go into some sort of lockdown, but they seem to enjoy the ice cream. Is it Blue Bell?

5. McDonald’s shuts down Burger King

This is from the earlier part of the week, but it still garners an awkward giggle. Basically, Burger King took out multiple full-page advertisements in some of the nation’s largest newspapers asking McDonald’s to come together with them on Peace Day to create the McWhopper, an amalgamation of beef, cheese and diabetes. McDonald’s answer? No, burger battles are nothing like the horrors of war, we also have an e-mail address. Smooth, Ronald.
