In hopes of winning their dream wedding, Ben Vienneau of Saint John, Canada proposed to his girlfriend, Marcia Belyea, in a very unorthodox way:

Having her arrested.

Vienneau worked with his police officer brother-in-law to arrange a mock arrest of his girlfriend as a set up for the marriage proposal to end all proposals.

It served as video entry to a radio contest awarding the wackiest proposal with a wedding by the sea, which might help her forgive him for this.

New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey recently filmed New Yorkers answering questions about Matt Harvey ... unaware they were talking to Matt Harvey.

In a skit for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Harvey conducted man-on-the-street interviews, asking people for their thoughts on the second-year pro.

It went exactly as you think, by virtue of the fact that we're sharing it, and proves that even die-hard NYC sports fans aren't as savvy as they think.

Then again, it's the Mets. Who even knows what their record is*?

The highlight has to be the guy blissfully ignorant of who he's talking to ... while actually wearing a Matt Harvey jersey and saying Harvey is his favorite player.

* - 41-50, 11 games out of first place. No one can blame Harvey, though. The 24-year-old is 7-2 with a 2.35 ERA and just made his first All-Star team.

It's a tad humid out. If you live in a wide swath of the U.S., you may have noticed.

A wave of blistering heat and stifling humidity settled in this afternoon over tens of millions of people from the Ohio Valley all the way up into Maine.

You don't need a meteorologist to explain that it's ridonkulously hot out there … but one at WFSB-TV in Connecticut decided to leave no doubt in anyone's mind!

Ridonk!

Not even the British isles are immune from unseasonably warm temps throughout the Hemisphere this summer. Kate Middleton sought refuge in her parents' A/C.

Long story short ... it's hotter than eating two dozen spicy Buffalo Wild Wings while looking at Kate Upton bikini photos in the middle of Death Valley.

Okay maybe not quite. But pretty warm.

Carly Rae Jepsen may wanna stick to her day job.

Or, really, anything aside from playing baseball.

The "Call Me Maybe" singer left no doubt yesterday that she isn't meant for the diamond, throwing out the first pitch at the Tampa Bay Rays game and making John Lackey look like Bob Gibson in the process.

Watch the noble, albeit feeble, effort now:

This local news segment offers the bear necessities when it comes to warding off a giant ursine creature in the woods. Or any other living thing for that matter.

Following a story about a man who faced down a bear, reporter Julie Tremmel of Providence, R.I.'s local NBC affiliate WJAR did a segment on bear safety.

Her intentions were no doubt good, but the end result was at least a solid 7 or 8 on the unintentionally comedy meter. Watch below and see for yourself:

So if you meet a bear in the woods, just make like Tremmel. Dart your eyes wildly, side to side, and wave your hands in the air like you just don't care!

Then curl up in the dirt as the confused animal laughs, concludes it probably isn't worth the trouble, shakes his head and ambles back into the forest.

Let's be honest: THG is a place you go not only to catch up on the latest news, but to fill a bit of downtime.

I'm sure there's been times you've turned to us and there isn't a new story. It's then you think, such a slow news day, what a bummer.

Trust me, if you take the slow news day hard, please know that we're dying over here!

So instead of just sitting and staring off into space, waiting for retirement... we've taken to YouTube. We do it for you, dearest readers.

Today let's do some movie themes. Like this Man of Steel video. The Man of Steel theme is beautiful but I have to say, I might enjoy this dude's take on it even more. Feelings? The corn background? It's a winner.

The Golden Sisters are at it again.

But this time, instead of viewing the Kim Kardashian sex tape or reading 50 Shades of Grey in shock and horror, they are analyzing the dance world's latest trend:

Twerking!

Indeed, Miley Cyrus herself sent out the above video on Twitter ("Granny with a booty almost got it on da wiggle wiggle wiggle. #doyothangggg," she wrote along with it).

The moral of this particular story would be that "Kids are always watching."

A well, intentioned seven-year-old boy named Cooper drew a photo of his mom in school ... and when she saw it, she couldn't believe how she was depicted.

Apparently, like all of us from time to time, she experiences a bit of road rage?

Mom explains that when she questioned Cooper about the drawing, "he began to lift his middle finger and an 'uh oh' expression blanketed his face."

He then said, "Mommy, that's what you do to drivers when you are mad."

Cute Kid Note

The best part of this unintentionally hilarious note is that if you look closer, the index finger is raised. Maybe she just wants to give other drivers a stern lecture?

With all due respect to Miley Cyrus Twerking, classical music has been unjustly overlooked during the ascension of this suggestive new dance craze.

Typically associated with hip hop, Twerking is interpreted through a radically different genre below in an experiment designed to legitimize the art.

"Twerking to Classical," an ongoing Huffington Post series, blends web videos of twerking with the more accepted artistic mores of classical music.

The result? Nothing short of paradigm breaking.

The first installment, "Twerking to Classical," explores the dynamic between Aram Khachaturian’s Suserov Par (Saber Dance) and a series of female twerkers.

The sequel, from "Men at Twerk," combines some of the most acclaimed male Twerkers with Gioachino Rossini’s smash hit William Tell Overture.

When it comes to these guys and girls contorting, gyrating and parting like it's 1699, we can’t stop ... and we're guessing you won't be able to either.

A guy who changed his relationship status on Facebook - from "Single" to "In a Relationship" - probably wasn't counting on this kind of feedback.

Either his friends are skeptical, have sophomoric senses of humor, or both, because the consensus seems to be that he's really just dating his hand.

Which has been given a number of celebrity names. Check out the pun-filled hilariousness below ... and marvel at just how many they came up with:
