Up Close & Personal with a Couple of Whales

A paddleboarder was paddling away on his board off the coast of Autralia, having a wonderful time.

And then he came face-to-face with a pair of Southern Right whales, a couple of very rare animals.

Nothing to worry about. The whales were completely calm, and seemed more curious than anything.

The best part: a local videographer had launched his drone camera, hoping to catch some footage of the whales.

As a bonus, he caught the close encounter too.

Check out the video. Setting John Lennon's "Imagine" as the soundtrack doesn't hurt one bit.

This is America's First Family?

Come on, Cosmopolitan.

It's your 50th anniversary, and you dedicate the cover to the Kardashian/ Jenner women?

And you call them "America's First Family?"

I'm sorry, there's got to be better choices for that honor.

The sub-title promises "16 Pages! Like You've Never Seen Them Before."

How is that? Fully-clothed?

SO excited to celebrate our 50th birthday with the Kardashian/Jenner ladies! Look for the issue on newsstands everywhere 10/13!

Hillary Meets Hillary, Face-to-Face

If you missed Saturday Night Live this weekend, you missed a lot of funny things.

This one's my favorite. Hillary Clinton - played by SNL cast member Kate McKinnon - came face-to-face with a bartender who looked an awful lot like Hillary Clinton.

That's because the bartender was played by the real Hillary Clinton.

It's a very funny bit, and Hillary shows she's got some comedy chops. Who knew?

She took some shots at herself, and does a terrific impression of Donald Trump too.

My favorite moment is a brief cameo by Bill Clinton - SNL's Darrell Hammond.

Hillary Clinton's new friend seems awfully familiar.

What, No Faceplants?

If you're like me, you have troubling balancing when you're dancing in shoes.

I can't imagine doing it on wheels.

And not just any wheels.

Five guys decided to dance to Justin Bieber's "What Do You Mean?" on Segways.

You know, the personal moving devices? These are smaller and more compact than the ones you've probably seen. And there's no control arm to hang onto either.

It's pretty amazing to watch. So watch it already.

Maybe They Should Sue Suh

Ndamukong Suh is a defensive tackle for the MIami Dolphins.

He's pretty good at his job, but you could argue that he's a little over-agressive.

Back when he played for the Detroit Lions, he was suspended for stomping on Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers' ankle.

Yesterday, in a game against the New York Jets, Suh is seen chasing quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick out of bounds, then kicking his head and knocking his helmet off.

The Internet's buzzing about it. Accidental, or intentional?

You be the judge. But I'm calling a foul on this one.

Honest Trailers Takes on "Age of Ultron"

We talked about this already. Marvel is releasing the BluRay version of The Avengers: Age of Ultron this week.

So what better time than now to trot out the honest trailer for the movie.

I'm sorry, that's Honest Trailer.

It's the creation of Screen Junkies, a YouTube channel that pulls apart and pokes fun at the movies and TV shows we know and may or may not love.

And this one for Age of Ultron is pretty hilarious

Check it out.

This Was Necessary Why?

Eighteen years ago, in Romy & Michelle's High School Reunion - it was a movie, let's set the scene - Romy (played by Mira Sorvino) told her high school pals (also played by actors) that she invented Post-It notes.

And obvious lie, and an obvious joke, in the script of a movie.

I mentioned it's a movie, right?

Yesterday, during an interview on The Huffington Post, Mira came face-to-Skype with the actual inventor of Post-Its, a guy named Art Fry.

And she, as Romy, apologized to Art for saying she'd invented Post-It notes.

It's an interesting bit - except no one seemed to know what part he or she was playing.

What do you think?

Top 10 Most Malicious Celebrities

The folks at Intel Security released a list of the top ten most malicious celebrities on the planet this week.

The celebrities themselves aren't necessarily malicious.

But doing an Internet search for them will more likely than not land you on a link to a website that's malicious - i.e., capable of whacking you with an Internet virus.

They rated the celebrities according to the likelihood that you'll end a search for them with a virus.
# 10. Actress Nina Dobrev - 13.2% likelihood
# 9. Singer Lorde - 13.6% likelihood
# 8. Actress Betty White - 14% likelihood
# 7. Comedian Amy Schumer - 14.7% likelihood
# 6. Singer Katy Perry - 14.9% likelihood
# 5. Rapper & Mr. Beyonce Jay Z - 15.8% likelihood
# 4. Singer Britney Spears - 16.4% likelihood
# 3. Singer Usher - 16.7% likelihood
# 2. Luke Bryan - 17.6% likelihood
# 1. DJ Armin van Buuren - 17.9% likelihood

Honestly, I've never heard of the last guy.

And I'm too afraid to Google him. Lord knows what might happen!

Contemplating the Mysteries of Existence

Stephen Colbert's already making his unique mark in the late-night spot vacated earlier this year by David Letterman.

The bits he's doing are so different than the bits being done on the other talkers.

Like this one, where he lies down on a blanket in a field and contemplates life with a buddy.

The buddy for this bit - Tom Hanks.

Very funny. Check it out.
