Jordan McCabe – Now This Kid’s Got Game

Check out this 12 year old kid who obviously has way too much time on his hands watching And1 Streetball videos. He definitely has a lot of talent but unless he gets like 4 feet taller, he’s not going to make it very far. Note: There is probably going to be a really boring Ad that plays before the video, do something else while it’s loading.

Somewhere Al Gore is in a robe, eating a hamburger, watching a CNN report on the dead birds and yelling “I TOLD YOU SO” with his mouth full.

Kudos to the Arkansas blackbirds who just received a MacArthur genius grant for their performance art piece, entitled “Why?”

Also, my phone wanted to auto correct whoah to Shoah. Cuz most people are probably texting about a 10 hour holocaust documentary.

For maximum karma points, make sure your cloth grocery bag has a slogan that makes people feel shitty for not using cloth grocery bags.

Just think, soon it will be weird to not have dead birds falling out the sky.

Something about how, like, burlesque is the steampunk of stripping? Or something? Does that even make sense? Who cares. #LessAmbitiousTweets

First Groupon Marriage Proposal Results in a “Yes”

ring-fingerIf you’re of a mind that marriage is a transaction, then this proposal will warm your frost-bitten heart. Today, local deals site Groupon saw its first marriage proposal (or “Grouposal” as the company is calling it) and the bride-to-be, luckily, clicked “Buy.”

The deal page — titled “A Surprise for a Dana from a Greg” — went live in the Cincinnati market today, according to Groupon.

“Greg contacted us because his girlfriend Dana is a huge Groupon fan,” the company tells us. “We are also giving them a Groupon a month in 2011 to keep the magic alive, since we all know romance dies as soon as you say ‘I will.’”

The page features a proposal, penned by Greg himself, and an editorial packed with facts about the couple: She’s an NFL cheerleader, he’s an engineer, he eats her unwanted pizza toppings — aww, young love.

Groupon also added in the below message (which we’re assuming is a joke, unless the deals site is going all Sister Wives on us) for those who click “Buy.”

We’ve seen wedding proposals on a bevy of different social media outlets — from Twitter to Foursquare to Google Street View. It was only a matter of time before the group-buying sphere saw its share of the romantic action.

Who says money can’t buy love?
