Teacher Owns Students in Dance Battle With Irish Jig

It's been our experience that high school teachers generally frown upon pranks. But one teacher at Whitney Young High School in Chicago eagerly joined in when seniors staged an unauthorized dance battle. If only our teachers were this cool.

What to Say to Trick-or-Treaters Without a Costume

Pretty clearly, the best part of Halloween is that you dress up in a fun costume and walk around acquiring delicious candy. Who doesn't love that? We're really excited to see all the trick-or-treaters in their best outfits this year. We've got our bags of candy ready, and we're giving away prizes for the best costumes we see.

However, we cannot abide a certain type of trick-or-treater. You know the kind. The lazy one who doesn't wear a costume. This trick-or-treater is terrible, and he thinks he's still entitled to some of our sweet chocolate treats? Ha! Well, we're not going to take it this year. Here are 10 things to say to trick-or-treaters without a costume.

Parents Get All Bent Out of Shape Over School’s Yoga Program, Cite Religious Objection

Over the last couple decades, yoga has gone from being thought of as a mystical ancient Indian discipline to a mainstream exercise practiced the world over.

In fact, all students in the Encinitas Union School District, which is in the San Diego area, now do yoga twice a week as part of their physical education curriculum. But this isn't sitting well with some parents, who are worried that the Hindu philosophy on which yoga is based is seeping into these lessons.

President Obama Photobombed by Adorable Smooching Kids

It takes a lot to upstage the President of the United States in a photograph, but these grade school kids have done it. We're not the only ones who think so. Even the president himself (or at least his Twitter account) labeled this the "picture of the day." We're pretty sure it's not because of the kid who's trying to eat his shirt. Or the way the president isn't looking at the camera either. Can you guess why?

Spider-Man Window Washers Give Sick Kids a Heartwarming Surprise

The window washers at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis, TN, kind of make 'Patch Adams' seem like a big old meany. Two of the hospital's three-man window washing team dressed up like Spider-Man, and then rappelled down the side of the building, lifting childrens' spirits while cleaning windows. But yeah, a clown nose is good too.

‘Evil Baby’ Meme Reveals Dark Side of Toddlers

As much as we love babies, there are times when they can be pure sources of terror. Unbearably adorable, charming, way-too-cute-to-get-mad at sources of terror, but terror-inducing nonetheless. In all honestly, we’re a little jealous these miniature munchkins can get away with virtually anything. If we stuck jelly beans up our nose or took it upon ourselves to redecorate the kitchen walls with Crayola, we’d be deemed citizens of Crazy Town, population: One.

This Kid Really Loves Bacon

Just like our fellow testosterone-sweating, meat-loving friend Ron Swanson, we’re big fans of bacon. To put our love for the greasy snack into perspective, learning about the horrific pending bacon shortage sent us into a minor panic attack, but it’s difficult to fully encompass our feelings for the meat strips. Luckily, a bacon-loving middle-schooler has done that for us.
