1. The U.S. gets its own Susan Boyle

"America's Got Talent" contestant Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., a car washer from West Virginia, was chided by Piers Morgan for chewing gum onstage. Then he opened his mouth so the ghost of Frank Sinatra could come out singing "I've Got You Under My Skin." Goosebumps!

2. A tribute to Ryan Dunn that will last a lifetime

"Jackass'" Wee-Man, (aka Jason Acuna) cuts through all the anger and flame wars surrounding his friend's death and gives him a uniquely touching memorial.

 3. Southwest Airlines pilot loses it on the mic

I don't know if it makes it better or worse that this guy's homophobic tirade was supposed to be a private cockpit conversation instead of being broadcast across the entire Texas airspace. Maybe he should get a job doing standup in Nashville?

4. Culture clash

Amazing footage, just uploaded to YouTube yesterday, of a tribe in Papua New Guinea meeting a white man for the first time in 1976.

5. Trippy Disney mashup

Pogo, the foremost expert and creator of Disney remixes, has come out with his latest creation. "Bloom" focuses not on one specific film, but several different animated classics.
