5. Why Moms Get Nothing Done
If there’s one thing that every mother knows, it’s the feeling that nothing gets done despite working your butt off at home. Esther Anderson of the blog Story of This Life shows us why that’s the case. Watch it and then go thank your own mom.
4. 3-Year-Old Karate Kid
It’s never too early to begin a path of self-discipline. This tiny tot, a new student at the Leeds Taekwondo studio in England, recites the student creed before starting a lesson. She repeats to her instructor a vow to develop herself mentally and physically, as well as never to be offensive or abusive. Luckily, being adorable is permitted.
3. I’ll Take Favorite ‘SNL’ Skits” for $200, Alex.
“Celebrity Jeopardy” is an absolutely classic Saturday Night Live sketch. Will Ferrell always holds it down in a rare straight man role as Alex Trebek, and the cast of impersonated celebrities rarely disappoints. For SNL’s 40th anniversary, veterans of the skit Darrell Hammond and Norm McDonald (as Sean Connery and Burt Reynolds/Turd Ferguson) make an appearance, along with former hosts Alec Baldwin as Tony Bennett and Jim Carrey as Matthew McConaughey. Sit back and enjoy as the laughably incompetent contestants struggle to identify “the G-shaped letter between F and H” and Sean Connery demands to see “Le Tits Now.”

1. ‘Billy,’ Big Bird, and FLOTUS (Oh My!)
Comedian and screaming game show host Billy Eichner got his biggest celebrity guests yet when first lady Michelle Obama and Sesame Street icon Big Bird joined him for a Funny or Die segment. The unlikely pair stand in a Washington, D.C., supermarket where they slow dance together, sing the theme song to The Facts of Life, and FLOTUS even pushes Billy around in a shopping cart as he reads Gwyneth Paltrow’s Oscar speech.
And then it gets really weird.
