Kelsie Frick pulled off a graduation prank that can only be described in one word: Awesome. Well, you could actually add an extra syllable too.

A quick "en" and "awesome" onto the end of her fortuitous last name? Genius:

Earlier this month, at Grand Valley State University commencement, the Michigan native had planned to "dance or do something silly on the stage."

Names were being read so quickly that this wasn't viable, though, so at the last second, she scribbled something onto the index card with her name on it.

The Silver Fox strikes again!

During an interview with Judd Apatow, Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd from This is 40, Anderson Cooper got into a conversation with Rudd about the actor's affection for pickles.

After a bit of juice was squirted, the host jumped in with a joke made all the more funny by Anderson's gay admission in July.

Watch now to see what we mean:

The end of the world is going down today, the Mayans tell us. You've surely heard.

What you probably haven't considered is that predictions of the December 21, 2012 apocalypse were all just a clever ruse ... to divert attention from the real threat.

The ALPACAlypse!

Alpacalypse 2012

A meme devoted to the llama-like furballs is wreaking cute destruction on 12/21/12.

So sometime today, expect a torrent of alpacas to rain down upon us, bringing fire, brimstone, the end of human civilization and a whole lot of furry silliness.

Seriously, have you seen one of them? See more Alpacalypse images below:

Victoria's Secret models are famous and filthy rich for their looks, not their vocal cords. Lingerie and bikini photos? Yes please. Singing? Mmmyeah not so much.

Half of them could probably make The X Factor live shows, but still. Yikes!

Fortunately, being as gorgeous as Candice Swanepoel, Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes, Alessandra Ambrosio or Erin Heatherton, actually make this kind of thing cute.

They can deck our halls any day, if you know what we mean.

THG NOTE: We have no idea what we mean there at all.

Let's face it: The Lord of the Rings is really just an 11-hour New Zealand tourism commercial.

The blockbuster essentially features a fantasy boy band and all its (white!) members do is walk... and walk... and walk some more.

So states the hilarious new "Honest" trailer for this epic trilogy, as the folks who also explained The Hunger Games in depth have taken aim at Peter Jackson and company.

Just in time for the release of The Hobbit, watch now:

A local California anchor was recently caught on camera doing what really needs to be mandatory during all local news commercial breaks: dancing up a storm!

Fox 40's Tia Ewing was working at 4:15 a.m. when it was time to cut to a commercial. What's a girl to do at that hour but get down to Beyonce's "Single Ladies"?

With a tablet in one hand, and her ring finger on display in the other, natch:

"I gotta get it where I can get it,” Ewing explained on air after realizing what happened. “I just didn’t know the camera was rolling. What else am I going to do at 4:30 in the morning?"

Point conceded. But add it to the list of 2012 local news fails just the same.

You have to see this video posted by a New Zealand animal charity that teaches dogs to drive cars - for real - and more successfully than certain humans, no less.

The driving dogs program was created by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Auckland, with the goal of establishing that dogs are smart creatures.

Mission accomplished, as evidenced by Porter here:

The SPCA wants people to adopt its awesome driving dogs, who can also be trained to do many other things with proper guidance, and other pets in need of homes.

Can you say full-time designated driver?!

File that under headlines you never thought you'd write.

Sure enough, Snoop Dogg stars as Moses in an amazing new video, depicting the Old Testament figure in a star-studded Christmas rap battle against Santa Claus.

As part of the Epic Rap Battles of History series (yes, it's a thing), the big fella touts his contributions to December 25, telling Moses to begat deez nutz, among other gems.

Snoop's response? He's got a new commandizzle for y'all ... Thou shalt not let thy children sit on a grown man's lap at the mall. And on and on it amazingly goes.

You gotta see it to appreciate it:

Former U.S. Sen. Alan Simpson (R-WY) has a message for the Millennial generation: use social media to spread the word and sign up for The Can Kicks Back campaign.

We know what you're thinking: Huh?

The 81-year-old Simpson - of the Simpson-Bowles deficit reduction commission - wants to encourage politicians to work across party lines to fix the $16 trillion U.S. national debt.

He's even willing to dance "Gangnam Style" to get your attention:

His grassroots movement is called The Can Kicks Back, in reference to the old "kicking the can down the road" adage. With the Fiscal Cliff looming, it's even more crucial to watch.

It's also funny.
