THESE happen in the U.S. just over 2 million times a year.

Incorrect guesses: snow shoveing injuries, coffee maker breaks, vehicles bought, weather records broken

The answer is marriages!

See Ya Later, Gator

This one goes into the Someone Tell Me Why file.

A guy in Florida was just arrested for throwing an alligator through the drive-through window at a local Wendy's.

As the story goes, he saw the three-foot-long alligator on the side of the road.

He grabbed it, but it in the bed of his pickup truck, and then drove to Wendy's.

He ordered a soft drink, then tossed the gator into the restaurant.

Someone thinks he was just trying to prank his buddy who worked there.

Prank or not, the guy's being charged with aggravated assault. Plus, unlawful possession and transportation of an alligator.

Got to hit him with the whole thing, I guess...

"Words Are Written on the Winds"

The folks who run the Academy Awards television show really don't like it when people ramble on and on and on when making their Oscar acceptance speeches.

So over the years, they've tried all sorts of techniques to hurry things along.

Cutting off microphones, playing music, cutting to commercial - everything short of having Sylvester Stallone grab one arm and Arnold Schwarzenegger the other and carrying the winner off-stage.

This year, nominees will be asked to provide a list of the people they wish to thank, and those names will appear as an on-screen scroll as the winners speaks, meaning the names won't need to be said.

According to Time magazine, the producers said, Words are written on the winds. A screen grab of your scroll can be kept forever.”

What's more sentimental than that?

Several years ago, Jack Black and Will Ferrell got to sing the "Get Off the Stage" song at the Oscars.

Have a look - it's pretty funny.

"Damn, We All Still Look Good!"

Candace Cameron Bure, Andrea Barber and Jodi Sweetin showed up on Ellen yesterday to talk about their new show, Fuller House.

The crew's back (except for the Olsen Twins) and the jokes are just as corny as they were in the original Full House.

They brought a trailer to show off - it's at roughly the 2:30 mark of the video clip.

The new series debuts on Netflix on February 26.

Let's see what the public's reaction is: have mercy, or cut it out!

Is This How an MVP Behaves?

Cam Newton, quarterback for the Carolina Panthers, has been taking a lot of criticism for the way he abruptly ended his press conference after his team's loss on Sunday in Super Bowl 50.

He was sulking, he answered the questions quickly, and he left unexpectedly. You've probably seen the video, but here it is in case you haven't.

Yesterday, Cam commented on his actions. And he is not apologizing.


Cam Newton knows how he reacted after the Carolina Panthers lost #SB50.And he won't apologize for it.

To me, that's not a guy that doesn't like to lose. That's a guy who has no idea what to do when he does lose.

What do you think?

"Awaken! And Welcome Death!"

One of the more unusual Super Bowl commercials was the one for Death Wish Coffee.

The company won a contest where the folks at Intuit QuickBooks paid for the production and airing of a 30-second ad during the Big Game for a small business.

Total price tag: around $5 million.

That's $2 million more than Death Wish Coffee brought in last year.

They call their coffee "fiercely-caffeinated," saying it's got twice as much caffeine as an average cup of coffee.

Which is good. Because if the commercial really amps up their business, they'll be needing to stay fiercely-caffeinated.

Death Wish Coffee Company’s Big Game ad has fierce Vikings, a stormy sea, and of course, coffee. Watch it now and don’t miss it on the game Feb. 7 in the 3rd quarter! #TeamSmallBiz

Whip, Nae Nae & Dab

Over the weekend, a gymnast from UCLA got a near-perfect score on her floor exercise, helping her team win the meet.

But her routine completely captivated people all over the world.

Just watch her moves. So energetic, so joy-filled, so precise, so much fun.

She got to throw in some dance moves too, and at the end, delivered a little Dab.

Nicely done!

"I Can't Sleep Since You Took My Puppet"

Okay, I know, the football season is officially over.

But there's always time for Bad Lip Reading.

And the BLR people released Part 2 of the NFL Bad Lip Reading serie at the end of last week, just before the Super Bowl.

But why waste it before the Big Game, when you can savor it a couple of days afterwards, right?

"One of These Days, You'll Be Someone's Dinner"

The Disney folks used the Super Bowl to drop their first trailer for live action version of The Jungle Book.

Money well-spent, if you ask me.

In a day that subjected us to sheep singing Queen songs and animated colons, The Jungle Book trailer was a breath of fresh air.

And it looks amazing.

Another one of those I've got to put on my must-see-in-a-theater list.

How about you?

Disney does it again!

When Siblings Score

Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos had just scored a touchdown to make the score of the Super Bowl 22 to 10 with only a few minutes left.

The Broncos decided to go for a two-point conversion to put them up by two full scores, meaning the Carolina Panthers would need a couple of miracles just to tie the game.

They line-up, Peyton tosses a perfect pass, boom! Two points! The Broncos are up by 14!

The CBS cameras switch to catch the action upstairs in the luxury box occupied by Peyton's family.

Everyone is super excited.

All but one guy. Peyton's little brother Eli - the QB for the New York Giants, who already has two Super Bowl rings of his own.

The look on Eli's face.. Well, no one's quite sure what it is, but it's still causing a lot of buzz on social media.

So far, this is the best tweet about it, if you ask me.
