This picture has begun to go viral from a post on Reddit. Megan's boyfriend proposed to her... that's great right?! Well, she did it at her sister's wedding and people are destroying her new fiance online.

But Megan says it was her sister's idea and her fiancé didn't want to do it, but the bride said it would make the day even better.

What do you think?

This is so cool!! Minnesota's Moorhead Horizon Middle School students created an eight-minute lip-sync video on an iPhone 6… in one take! 1,400 students incorporated 2,200 balloons, 23 pounds of confetti, and flawlessly lip-synced multiple songs. Oh yeah...and their mascot is a POTATO NAMED SPUD!! Drop the mic!

We're looking at you JCPS…whatcha got?

This is a pretty cool story. Instead of going on a senior trip, the graduating class at Profile Junior-Senior High School in New Hampshire decided to sacrifice something they'd been looking forward to for years.

When they found out their principal was battling a rare form of soft tissue cancer,they decided to donate the $8,000 they'd saved up for their senior trip to her cause. The principal says her school teaches students about compassion, but she never thought it would directly affect her. She told the students, "It is very hard for me to accept help, and I have no idea what to say to you."

The principal has known the senior class for six years, and said they are a remarkable group with heart. She hopes to start treatment for synovial sarcoma soon after giving the seniors their diplomas. Wow!

Gotta love the Internet, right? The latest social media craze is an attempt to summon a Mexican demon. Fun!

To "play" - you take a piece of paper and draw a plus sign. Put a "YES" in two opposing sections and a "NO" in the other two. Place two pencils across the middle of the drawing in a plus-sign formation, with one balanced atop the other so that it can spin.

Then ask out loud, "Charlie, Charlie, are you there?" or "Charlie, Charlie, can we play?" and the top pencil will likely move at some point because of how it's balanced. But more importantly, you'll likely poop your pants.

Yea, we try it to prove it wrong and..........
Nope!!!



What have you done???? LOL

Hey guys, I'm back from week two with more behind the scenes dirt. This week Ben and Kelly trusted me to run the soundboard again, but let me do more than last week by working the audio clips for Kelly's celebrity sleaze segment. I'm slowly progressing. Screening calls and talking to regular fans of the show was added to my list of responsibilities. I was able to connect with people and share their love for the morning broadcast, while learning about how the phones work on and off-air. A representative from a record company brought in prerelease music, and although I can't tell you all the awesome jaw-dropping details, just buckle your seatbelts for some new and upcoming jams. My favorite job duties as an intern for this week included an onsite broadcast at a Thornton's on Westport Rd. and scheduling Tweets for the upcoming weekend. Through writing for The Cardinal and The Celebrity Café, I've acquired a set of journalism skills, which I confidently implemented into my Tweets about the artists of the tracks set up to play on Saturday and Sunday. Week two was, yet, another success. I feel even more connected to the staff here at DJX and can't wait to continue my journey as an intern.

In a series of KFC ads debuting on May 25, Saturday Night Live announcer and former cast member Darrell Hammond will "become" the Colonel himself; yes, the beloved Kentucky Fried Chicken founder, who appeared in ads for KFC in the '60s and '70s. Hammond told People Magazine, "It's an honor to bring to life such an iconic figure and it doesn't hurt that KFC is paying me in chicken (which, at the time sounded like a good idea, because I was very hungry that day)."

Josiah Duncan and his mom were eating at a Waffle House when they noticed a homeless man standing at the restaurant. When he found out he "didn't have a house," he begged his mother to buy the man dinner at Waffle House. His mom said the man only wanted to order a simple cheeseburger but she told him to get anything he wanted. And before the man could dig in, Josiah said he wanted to 'say the blessing with him', singing loud enough for the other 11 customers in the restaurant to hear.

He sang, 'God our Father, God our Father, we thank you, we thank you. For our many blessings, for our many blessings, Amen, Amen.' The mom said everyone, including the man, teared up.
