All parents know the feeling well. When a helpless child needs your assistance, your parental instinct kicks into overdrive as you ... reach for the iPhone!

If the Internet has given us one thing, it's an information superhighway designed for transmission of cat photos. If it's given us a second thing? Kid fails.

Any mother or father has seen their young one(s) in an awkward and/or inadvisable situation, and most (we would think) can't help but chuckle a little.

So sometimes, in the case of this baby doing his best ostrich impression, the need to document it takes priority over the wee one's temporary misfortune:

Baby Ostrich

There are too many sorry-I-didn't-help-you-first photos to possibly post here, but we've added a half-dozen that we came across and particularly liked.

Such as ...

Touche! Next Media Animation has posted a response to former employee Marina Shifrin, who danced her way out of a job in a video that went viral this week.

Jaded twenty-something Shifrin posted a video of herself announcing her exit from the Taiwanese video animation company and dancing to Kanye West's "Gone."

Now her spurned employer is looking to have the last laugh, though:

The company's takeoff of Shifrin's "I Quit" message? "We're hiring!"

The video by NMA - the company that makes those hilarious animated, Asian reenactments of current events - makes a few tongue-in-cheek references to Shifrin's.

Pitching potential candidates with the perks of the job, it lists the apparent opportunities to satisfy your boss' need for revenge among the selling points.

Who's the winner here, NMA or Marina Shifrin? You decide ...

A Jeopardy contestant was flat-out hosed this week because of his accent, specifically the way he pronounced "Elaine" as in Elaine Benes from Seinfeld.

The question in the "Name TV Role" category was essentially "Julia Louis-Dreyfus' character on Seinfeld," and Fidelito Cortes responded, "Elaine."

Host Alex Trebek said this was incorrect, however, and moved on to another contestant who guessed "Benes." The other contestant was deemed correct.

Trebek then corrected Cortes on his pronunciation. Check it out:

Viewers took to Twitter to bash the show. Some choice Tweets:

The U.S. government has been shutdown, as Congress could not reach a funding agreement last night and over 800,000 workers stayed home today as a result, forced into furloughs by the maneuver.

Moreover, countless parks and tourist attractions around the nation have been closed, costing states millions of dollars and citizens hours of enjoyment.

We're not saying we're in favor of the situation, which is sadly symbolic of the utter gridlock in Washington these days, but due to the following video… let's just say we mind it a lot less.

With many blaming House Speaker John Boehner and his refusal to budge on measures that would hamper Obamacare for the shutdown, a genius Internet user has super-imposed the politician's face on Miley Cyrus' body in the latest, greatest Wrecking Ball parody.

Get it? Because Boehner came in like a wrecking ball, clawed and chained and just wanted to break the walls of the administration? Watch and try not to burst out laughing now:

You're only as young as you feel. At least that seems to be the attitude of one grandmother, who is very much alive on the dance floor in the video below.

She moves her hips. She humps the air. She thrusts like a madwoman possessed and gets LOW like an octogenarian Miley Cyrus ... fittingly, to "Blurred Lines."

We're not just being nice to an old lady, either. She's got skills!

You have to admit, her ability to salsa dance has remained undiminished with the passage of time, and the same is apparently true of her taste in men.

Watch what happens as she fixes her eyes one guy seated at a table and moves in on her target, who seems confused, amused and a little perplexed:

It's embarrassing enough to simply play the tuba in high school.

So imagine being a high school tuba player who gets caught in a domino-like pile-up during halftime of a football game, falling to the ground along with many of your fellow instrument-playing bandmates.

That's exactly what wet down for Austin's Lake Travis High School Cavalier Marching Band this weekend, but on the plus side? They made it on to Good Morning America as a result!

That's more than we can say for ourselves. So maybe we should shut the heck up. Watch footage from this on-field mishap now:

Marina Shifrin recently quit her job in the coolest way ever - with a video of her dancing around the office and describing exactly why she needs to quit.

The 25-year-old, who previously worked at Next Media Animation, posted this to YouTube with one simple message for her boss: I'm outta here!

In the video, she dances around the offices of the Taiwanese animator (you've seen their hilarious news reenactments) at odd hours of the night. She laments:

"For almost two years I've sacrificed my relationships, time and energy for this job. And my boss only cares about quantity and how many views each video gets."

"So I figured I'd make ONE video of my own."

Facebook may print money for Mark Zuckerberg and his cohorts, but as far as popularity among younger users go, it's seen some declines of late.

Once the hip, cutting-edge social network for college kids and teens, the Facebook has become more of a forum for moms, dads and even grandparents.

Using it to embarrass their family members, intentionally or not, the older folks are driving away the site's initial users - often in hilarious fashion, at least.

If you're wondering why "kids these days" prefer Instagram, Vine, Tumblr and SnapChat over Facebook, it might be because of status updates like this ...

Facebook Fail 2

Very well played, dad. Father figures are always there to keep you in line with a smart-ass comment ... or by recreating your douchey selfies:

Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul made a cameo on Saturday Night Live last night in a season-opening faux press conference by President Barack Obama.

On the eve of the Breaking Bad finale, and with Affordable Care Act health care exchanges set to open Tuesday, Paul made a heartfelt pitch for Obamacare.

Or Jesse Pinkman did, we should say. Take a look (4:25):

Paul, as his Emmy-winning character, described how a certain friend of his in New Mexico could have benefited from Obama's signature legislation.

Because there was no Obamacare, Jesse's unnamed friend was forced to undergo drastic measures to pay for his treatment and provide for his family:

Cooking massive amounts of meth and murdering people.

For disgraced NFL great O.J. Simpson, that's just how the cookie crumbles. When you get caught stealing them from the prison cafeteria, that is.

The Juice was caught with not one, not two, but a dozen oatmeal cookies pilfered from the correctional facility he calls home, a new report says.

Simpson, who's serving a 33-year sentence for armed robbery at Lovelock Correctional Center in Pershing County, Nev., ganked them after lunch.

He may have gotten away with his unusually non-violent offense but for an inquisitive guard who noticed O.J. hiding something under his prison clothes.

When the corrections officer questioned O.J., he allegedly confessed. For once.
