Tortoise has two heads and five legs!

I’ll bet you’ve never seen an animal quite like this! Magdelina the tortoise has two heads and five legs. I can’t quite wrap my (one) head around this one. Is she Siamese twins or does she literally one tortoise with two heads and two brains? How does that even work? So weird.

[Guitar] Cha Sun Chon et al. – “Our Kindergarten Teacher”

This video has been on the rise over the past week or so, with over 1 million YouTube views. I was torn as to whether it should go in our Weekly Dose Of Cute or our Weekly Dose of WTF. These kids are certainly adorable, but their robotic guitar skills and synchronization at such a young age earned them a spot in today’s roundup. What do you think about these kids’ performance?

80s Face Workout

This video has been around for awhile now, but when a friend shared it on Facebook this week I knew I just had to include it in this week’s WTF roundup. Do you think this face workout really works?

Alexandra Wallace

This week a UCLA student names Alexandra Wallace had the Web reeling (and asking WTF?!) after she posted a racist rant to YouTube. Wallace took down the original video, but many people re-uploaded it, and the video has garnered millions of views over the past few days. For more on this story, check out our post about the incident, as well as our coverage of her subsequent apology. What’s your take on Alexandra Wallace?

Tamtampamela

If you thought Alexandra Wallace was bad, wait until you meet YouTube troll Tamtampamela. Pamela uploaded a video (as a “joke”), mocking Christians and tsunami victims by pretending to be a devout Christian who is thrilled that her prayers for God to “open the eyes of atheists” was answered by the earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan. Later in the day she admitted that she was just havin’ some fun trolling. How could someone think this is funny? WTF?

The World’s BIGGEST HOLES – BOAT #5

Here’s an interesting video that’s been spreading throughout the last couple of days. It explores the phenomenon of sinkholes, providing information about the world’s biggest and best holes of all time. YouTuber 3nigm4tic commented, “This was so strangely interesting I had to replay it several times.” I would have to agree.

News – It’s Healthy To Stare At Women’s Chests

Finally, all you fellows out there – your prayers have been answered! A new German study has discovered that it’s healthy to stare at men’s breasts for ten minutes a day. Staring at breasts can lower your heart rate, your blood pressure and lower your chances of heart problems.
