When raging homophobe and Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum rolls into Cumming, Georgia, to a campaign stop, the puns are almost too easy.

Still, this headline, first posted on Buzzfeed, defies description:

Santorum Headline

For more on Rick Santorum, a real "family values" conservative who has shot to the top tier of the GOP race against all odds, just Google Rick Santorum.

It's eye-opening, the etymology of the former Senator's name.

Well played, Internet ... and CUMMING headline writer.

Yeah ... the title of this video/article pretty much speaks for itself.

What's not to love about a miniature dog running in circles? Or a baby shrieking with joy as if what it's just witnessed was the greatest event in human history?

Nothing. Now imagine both of those things put together! It's awesome!

If you ever need to run errands, just plop your youngster down on the floor with a Sheltie (or mutt-like equivalent) for hours of free babysitting - and fun!

NOTE: We're not actually suggesting that, but still, check this out:

Late night sexting can be an enjoyable pastime, but as the exchange below illustrates, one still encounters limitations. Sexting can't beat the real thing ... especially if you're just too tired to get out of bed, walk across the room and turn the lights on.

It's still sexy to swap dirty texts and all, but it's a flawed system.

Maybe the iPhone 5 will include a night vision camera function?

Adorable Sophia Grace Brownlee, 8, and her cousin Rosie McClelland, 5, became online phenomena with a cover of Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" last year.

Now they've run it back with a rendition of Nicki's "Moment 4 Life"!

Hot off their Grammy red carpet coverage for Ellen DeGeneres, Sophia Grace and Rosie McClelland appeared on Ellen yesterday to perform the song.

While Sophia Grace belted out lyrics until she was red in the face, Rosie busted out some freaking sweet dance moves. Don't call her an understudy anymore!

Donning their trademark tiaras and wearing fluffy yellow, pink and orange skirts, the twosome bring it hard! Minaj, a big fan of the two, is no doubt proud:

Well, that's one way to get in a nice dig at your siblings.

This very public, passive aggressive airing of family grievances is very sad, but Josie Anello did live to be 94, and if you can get past the tragic aspect of it all, it's hilarious.

Spotted in the Tampa Tribune, this obituary takes obvious shots at two of the deceased's three children. She was also a great great grandmother, which is pretty amazing!

Odds that the author of the obit was A.J.? Fairly high.

Tommy Jordan, a North Carolina dad, recently taught his teenage daughter the hard way to show some respect - and that nothing on the Internet is really private.

He pulled out a gun and pumped nine bullets into her laptop - on camera.

When her dad discovered a Facebook rant that she thought she had blocked from him, he decided to respond in a way that will certainly never be forgotten.

Jordan, of Albemarle, N.C., posted this video on YouTube, responding to his daughter Hannah's post, in which she complained about having to do chores:

"I'm not your damn slave," Tommy, who works in IT and discovered the post when adding software to her laptop to upgrade it, read from Hannah's post.

"We have a cleaning lady for a reason."

After continuing to read his 15-year-old's missive, he fired bullets into her computer from a .45 handgun. That's one way to get your point across.

Jordan also addresses Hannah on camera in the video, saying that she can clean up the house and get a new computer if she pays for one herself.

Tommy also noted that Hannah must pay him back for the bullets and software he just installed. Ouch. No laws were broken, and there will be no investigation.

Just the same, the father's actions have sparked controversy and discussion, with some finding it way out of line, and others praising his backbone.

"Maybe a few kids can take something away from this," he wrote on YouTube.

"If you're so disrespectful as to post this kind of thing on Facebook, you're deserving of some tough love. Today, my daughter is getting a dose of tough love."

It's not just Friday, people. It's Death Metal Friday.

In an incredible cover of Rebecca Black's hit song recorded nearly a year ago but making the online rounds again today, Jarett Norton and Danny Dodge have left their own mark on the teen's iconic tribute to the last day of the work/school week.

The funny thing? This death metal version of "Friday" sounds like a choir of heavenly angels singing compared to Rebecca Black's actual voice. Enjoy!

SI cover model Kate Upton lends her good looks and apparent video game expertise to help a quartet of major leaguers learn the ropes in an ad for the new game MLB 2K12.

Titled “Finger Mechanics with Kate Upton,” the ad shows the curvaceous blonde teaching the baseball stars to an unhittable circle changeup ... virtually of course.

“Take your thumb, go up and then around, and that’s a circle change,” says Upton, who graces the cover of Sports Illustrated‘s swimsuit edition, to her audience.

Best. Pitching. Coach. Ever.

The ballplayers getting their learn on from the 19-year-old stunner are Detroit's Justin Verlander, Tampa's David Price, Cincinnati's Jay Bruce and L.A.'s C.J. Wilson.

MLB 2K12 comes out on March 6, and Upton's lesson may pay off: A user who pitches a perfect game will be entered into a contest for a chance to win $1 million.

Date with Kate not included.

University of Alabama freshman Jack Blankenship thought of a great way to distract players from opposing schools: With a huge photo of his own contorted face.

From snarling Saddam Hussein to sultry Marilyn Monroe, giant craniums are nothing new in the stands of sporting events. But this was definitely a unique twist.

Blankenship, a native of the Tide's hometown of Tuscaloosa, began showing up behind the basket at games this month with a giant picture of his own dome:

"I never really saw the relevance of photos of celebrities, so I figured why not just a picture of me," Jack said. "I thought that it would be a little different."

The unusual sight of a student waving a giant picture of his own face during free throw attempts drew far more attention than Blankenship ever expected.

ESPN2 cameras caught him with the sign during Alabama's 69-67 overtime victory over Ole Miss on February 4, prompting announcer Pam Ward to remark:

"This guy ... who does that? I mean, who makes a picture of themselves?"

It's a fair question, but so is this: Why don't more skinny freshman fans at colleges across the country do this! Random, goofy-faced challenge extended!

Can humor be quantified? Not a chance, but that didn't stop Google from trying. The tech giant actually created an algorithm which ranks the funniest YouTube videos.

It takes into account certain elements of the clip(s), the uploader's interpretation of it (based on title, description and tags) and of course user comments and votes.

The video below - actually a collection of three practical jokes - won. While it's definitely up there, ranking it THE best might be a bit of a stretch. Watch and see:

Google engineer Sanketh Shetty explained the methodology and its challenges:

“Viewers emphasize reaction to videos in several ways: e.g. capitalization (LOL), elongation (loooooool), repetition (lololol), exclamation (lolllll!!!!), and combinations thereof. If a user uses an “loooooool” vs an “loool”, does it mean they were more amused?”

The results of the experiment can be seen on Google’s Comedy Slam leaderboard.

According to the same method, the funniest video of just this week is this one, featuring some dude trying to reach a tomato through ceiling fan blades.

Spoiler alert: It ends badly for him. Enjoy:
