Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, who plays Lily on Modern Family after producers decided to randomly morph the character from an infant to a five-year-old in between seasons, is apparently a big fan of Adele - and not a bad singer to boot!

Watch her belt out "Someone Like You," LIVE from the car seat:

Aubrey's mom, comedian Amy Anderson, filmed and posted the video.

She writes, "Aubrey is crazy into Adele right now which I love. It's so cute hearing her belt her songs in the car. This is where she likes to sing the most."

"At first she didn't know if she wanted to learn this particular song because she thought it was too slow, but now it's one of her favorites."

The youngest Modern Family cast member definitely holds her own.

In a world in which a Jordanian MP pulls a gun and people threaten Brad Pitt's mom for her perfectly reasonable beliefs, life can be discouraging.

Time for a momentary respite and some much-needed smiles.

If this doesn't turn that frown upside down, frankly we don't know what will. It's a small cat riding a turtle across the room! What more do you need!

Not a lot. Not. A. Lot.

In articles-that-are-somehow-real-and-not-from-the-Onion news, a man who owed over $32,000 in child support was recently lured out of hiding.

With the promise of a role in a new Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy.

After getting a call from the film's "producers," Joshua Garlathy didn’t think twice about leaving his Hawaii hideout and heading back to Allentown, Pa.

Jennifer Aniston's Hair

There, his ex-girlfriend had spent 19 YEARS trying to get Garlathy to pay the money he owes to support their kid to no avail ... until an idea struck.

The “producer” was actually bounty hunter Scott Bernstein, and Banished in Brooklyn - in which Garlathy would play “a small part as a guitar-strumming bad guy by the name of Dirty Nick” - is not a real movie, though it sounds right up Jen's alley.

Hope Dog Chapman is taking notes.

Amazingly, this is not the first plot of its kind. In Alabama, Operation Iron Snare rounded up deadbeat parents with Alabama-Auburn football tickets.

San Diego Padres fan Travis Decker learned the hard way over the weekend that Facebook and baseball don't always mix. At least not live baseball.

He was struck hard by a foul ball in the upper deck of the right field stands at Petco Park while attempting to "check in" to the stadium on his phone.

Decker was too busy trying to update the universe that he was at Petco, he failed to pay attention to the exciting action at Petco. To his own detriment.

That's gotta hurt, but give Travis credit for being a good sport at least:

This is the second most embarrassing video to come out of America's Finest City in the past week, with the first being the epic San Diego fireworks fail.

Pull it together, SD!

Meet Doug Pitt, the second most famous Pitt in his family.

Unlike his brother, Brad Pitt, Doug is not a superstar, has never made the front page of his local newspaper and certainly hasn't scored any endorsement deals.

Until now! Virgin Mobile Australia, in a funny new viral campaign, seeks to bring everyone a piece of the A-list lifestyle, even regular suburban dads like Doug.

A Missouri businessman, Doug Pitt appeared on Today to discuss his 15 minutes of viral fame, along with another family member of Brad's who's in the news.

Their mother, Jane Pitt, courted headlines last week after she penned an anti-gay letter to her local paper wrote urging Christians to vote for Mitt Romney.

"You know, I think moms and dads and kids agree to disagree all over the world. So why would our family be any different?" he said in his mom's defense.

"There can be healthy discussion when people disagree with you. The bad thing is when it turns to venom and negativity, and we don't have that in our family."

"We can learn from each other and, if anything, it solidifies your point. Or maybe you learn something. Either way it's an open and respectful discussion."

Now that's an attitude nearly all of us can learn from.

A bootleg fireworks fail on some random guy's street? You almost expect that on July 4. But the seventh-largest U.S. city screwing up? That's more noteworthy!

The July 4 fireworks show in San Diego ended abruptly after a malfunction on three barges in the city's coastal bay caused all the explosives to go off at the same time.

An extravaganza that was supposed to last 25-30 minutes was compressed into about that many seconds. Silver lining: those 25-30 seconds were awesome!!

Alcohol consumption, extreme heat, a day off and explosives are already a dangerous mix, as we saw in this scary/amazing fireworks fail montage.

Buying illegal, bootleg fireworks from an unknown source? That's just asking for disaster. A group of patriotic revelers discovered this the hard way.

Fortunately, no one was hurt ... and the cameraman's reaction is hysterical:

Happy Birthday America! July 4 is upon us again, and that means you all should take a moment and remember basic fireworks safety precautions ... then go make sure your camera's battery is charged so you can immortalize your friends' idiocy.

In 2010 alone, there were 15,500 reported fires caused by fireworks, 8,600 related emergency room visits, and $36 million in property damage.

Much of which appears in the montage below. U-S-A! U-S-A!

The Supreme Court upheld Obamacare and its individual insurance mandate today, although Fox News and CNN apparently expected a different outcome.

They were so surprised, they reported it was struck down!

Many in the media expected the Supreme Court to throw out the 2010 Affordable Care Act, but no one officially knew until the ruling at 10:15 Thursday.

Looks like CNN and Fox News jumped the gun. Fail.

  • Fox News Fail
  • CNN Fail

The Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling established that the law, which mandates citizens have health insurance, is constitutional, since not doing so results in a tax.

Nonetheless, Fox's ticker initially reported that individual mandate had been declared “unconstitutional,” while CNN said the mandate had been “struck down.”

Both networks ultimately corrected their reports, but not before their utter idiocy was disseminated throughout the Twitterverse. Really, guys, awesome work.

It's unclear if they were merely confused by the court's extensive 193-page ruling or if they had that text ready to go ahead of time and forgot to change it.

In any case, as HitFix's Alan Sepinwall joked, this would make for a great episode of The Newsroom ... in two years, with the full benefit of hindsight.
