This is a Japanese-themed villa on the island of Mustique, and it’s incredible. Along with the view you get two house managers, a butler, dedicated housekeeping and grounds staff, an award-winning, European-trained chef, all set in five acres of mature tropical gardens. Oh, and a one-green, nine-tee private golf course—the only golf course on Mustique. And it’ll only cost you, um, $35,000 per week in high season.

Golf Cart Jump Turns Into World’s Biggest Wedgie

Golf-cart-jump-turns-into-world-s-biggest-wedgie-video--050c864f4f

There are wedgies, and then there are wedgies. And then…there is this.

To provide some basic play-by-play, a shirtless dude tries to hurdle a golf cart in front of his friends. He clears the cart, but his shorts get caught on the cart’s roof. That delivers the dreaded hanging wedgie, with a side dish of downward force that tilts the cart over several degrees.

The video was posted to YouTube in mid-July, and has so far gained nearly a quarter million views. But it caught on with some blogs on Wednesday, signaling that its true viral life may just be beginning.

Mashable‘s unscientific analysis deems this the world’s biggest wedgie. What do you think? Regale us with your nominations in the comments below.

Ordinary folks give president a primer on things ordinary folks do

http://twitter.com/#!/BrkfstAtTiffs24/status/284795237296123904

A visibly frustrated President Obama addressed the press briefly tonight after meeting with the leaders of the House and Senate in fiscal cliff talks. Obama called it “mind boggling” that legislators hadn’t been able to conclude a deal to avert the fiscal cliff, noting that “ordinary folks, they do their job. They meet deadlines.”

All those private sector jobs he's had taught him that. RT @jamiedupree Obama: "Ordinary folks do their jobs; they meet deadlines"

— Brandon Kiser (@Kiser) December 28, 2012

President #Obama keeps referring to "this town" and "ordinary folks." May soon write a Springsteen song. #fiscalcliff

— Trent Mitchell (@TrentKMitchell) December 28, 2012

Plenty of ordinary folks were watching and decided to take advantage of the spotlight the president cast on them to share some other things ordinary folks do and don’t do.

Obama: "Ordinary folks do their jobs." – And that is what makes you so special.

Inadvertent truth! Obama: I don’t care and I only try to look like I do

If you needed more proof that Obama really does not care, he just admitted it himself Sunday morning on “Meet the Press.”

Heh. Poor vacationing Obama never catches a break!

That’s shameful enough, but there was even more. The president blamed not being mindful enough of “optics” for the reason why he scurried off to hit the links (with fist bumps) after his presser on the barbaric James Foley beheading.

The beheading itself? Whatever! He is still only thinking of “theater.” And, you know, himself.

Don’t look now, Obama, but we all see what you actually admitted.

Yep.

Will this be the next backpedal attempt (and fail) by Obama?

It’s not funny, because it will probably be true. Again.

And an exit nutshell:

Fore-ward!

How Your City Is Trying To Sell Itself To The RNC

1. The RNC is having its winter meeting in D.C. this week. One of the only interesting things happening at it is the beginning of the selection process for the 2016 convention host city.

AP

2. Right now the lead cities vying for the convention are Denver, Vegas, Kansas City, Phoenix, New Orleans, and Columbus.

 

3. Of course, all those options are better than the militarized, hurricane-prone logistical clusterfuck that was Tampa in 2012.

Getty Images

So the race is on.

4. How this works: Each city sets up a SWAG table and throws gifts and parties for RNC delegates who will be voting on the convention location.

5. Are you from Phoenix? Here is your SWAG table.

6. Phoenix is giving out peanuts, tea, and golf towels!

7. Along with hot sauce.

Get it? Ass Kicking?

8. On Thursday night, Phoenix threw a fancy party called “Rise of the Republicans.”

9. It brought in these girls to entertain the guests!

10. And entertain they did!

 

11. And that party was stacked with booze and snacks!

 

12. When asked to define his city’s bid for the RNC, a Phoenix representative said: “Leadership of the city really wants this to happen.”

13. Are you from Denver? Here is your SWAG table!

14. Denver’s giving out beer. Coors of course.

15. And this fancy Colorado Native Beer.

That is made with all Colorado ingredients.

16. Every delegate gets this Broncos SWAG bag!

And just look at that super American shirt!

17. Which includes this margarita in a tube!

18. When asked to define his city’s bid for the RNC, Denver’s representative said: “The answer is two words: Peyton. Manning.”

19. Are you from Kansas City? Well get ready to amaze!

20. Your table has popcorn and bags of coffee and chocolates.

The bags come with light-up hearts on them!

21. When asked to define the city’s bid for the RNC, the Kansas City representative said: “We are the heart of America.”

22. Are you from Vegas? Your town certainly wants some RNC.

Zooom!

23. Your bid starts with buying Wi-Fi for everyone at the convention.

One is reminded of this immediately upon entry.

24. Vegas has set up entire lounges, roped off for next-level delegate schmoozing.

25. And schmooze they do! Check out these snacks in the lounge!

 

27. Vegas has hats and binders with “Vegas 2016” embossed on them. It also has DELEGATE CREDENTIALS ALREADY PRINTED OFF.

 

28. But snacks and SWAG are not enough for Vegas. It has an OPEN BAR.

Reminder: This is 2 in the afternoon.

29. Free. Booze. ALL. DAY.

 

30. Oh, and Vegas has TWO of these boozy paradises set up at the RNC meeting.

So you are never more than 50 feet away from a Snickers and a beer.

31. Snacks, an open bar, and a sparkle pillow. What else do you need?

 

32. When asked to define the city’s bid for the RNC, a Vegas representative said: “Las Vegas is ready, this is what we do.”

33. Are you from Columbus, Ohio?! Here is your table.

34. You brought ice cream!

But really nothing else.

35. And since I could not find a Columbus representative all day, I made up a slogan for you.

36. Good luck to all you cities in your bid!

One of you will be getting this in three years!
