Most of the YouTube ones were weak, but I liked Fuegelhorn Feline.


IGN has a preview for the new Harry Potter TV Show on FX called The Aurors. I have to tell you, I would watch that show.  It looks damned good.

1Up has a look at Halo Dance Central.  meh.

My favorites were xkcd (bummer that it's not still like that), a couple of the Think Geek items (it's only a matter of time before those lightsaber popsicles are real), and the 3D monocle.

The winner, IMO, was The Aurors TV show, though.  Just real enough to be believable, cool enough to want it to exist, but all the same entirely ridiculous.

Maryland man glued to Wal-Mart toilet seat
http://www.cnn.com/2011/US/04/06/maryland.toilet.prank/index.html?hpt=T2
Quote
Police, along with the Singerly Fire Co. and the Cecil County paramedics, were called to the scene at about 7 p.m.

There, they found the 48-year-old victim, who called for help after realizing the sticky situation he was in when he tried -- and failed -- to stand up and leave the superstore's restroom, Donnelly said.

It took responders 15 minutes to remove the victim from the stall, but they were unable to disconnect the toilet seat from his body, Donnelly said.

Instead, the victim was taken to Union Hospital of Cecil County, where the seat was detached. He left with only minor injuries to his buttocks, Donnelly said.
