A Realistically Proportioned Fashion Doll

There's been a lot of pushback recently against the unrealistic proportions of Barbie dolls.

Except for those women who slave away to look like human Barbies, real women simply don't look like that.

So how would a "realistically proportioned fashion doll" fare in today's toy market?

Toy designer Nikolay Lamm aims to find out, with Lammily, a doll based on the proportions of the average 19-year-old woman.

To add to the realism, Lammily comes with stick-on tattoos, cellulite, stretch marks, scars and more.

Check out the video of a bunch of school kids getting to meet Lammily and compare her to a normal Barbie doll. It's pretty interesting...

One Winner Means Lots of Losers

On Jimmy Kimmel Live the other night, Jimmy got to break the news that Chris Hemsworth is People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive in 2014.

So, he's the winner.

Which means, every other man on the planet is the loser.

Like Jason Bateman, who thought he'd been invited to appear on Kimmel's show because he was going to get the award.

To make him feel better, Jimmy let Jason read his acceptance speech, which he'd prepared in anticipation of winning the award.

(For the record, Jason's an underrated comic actor...)

Even Worse Than Misfit, These Toys Are Bad

A consumer advocacy group called WATCH - World Against Toys Causing Harm - this week issued its list of the Ten Worst Toys of 2014.

The worst, according to WATCH, is the Air Storm Firetek Bow, which can shoot arrows up to 145 feet.

There's also the Catapencil, an actual pencil with a slingshot at the top - surefire classroom fun right there.

A Battle Hammer designed for three-year-olds - the ones who think they're Thor, I guess.

The SWAT Electric Machine Gun was in the middle of the list. Surprising, really, when you consider the manufacturer's warning that it could be mistaken for the real thing by law enforcement personnel.

You can check out the full list in this article in The Daily Mail.

And check out the video of the press conference...

Fearsome Foursome

I just stumbled on this video - it's been floating around cyberspace for a few months - but it's mesmerizing.

The quartet is called Salut Salon - based in Hamburg, Germany, they mix classical music with some comedic stylings.

Playing another's instrument with her own bow, playing the piano upside down, playing their stringed instruments inverted...

They never miss a step or skip a note. Watch it once, and tell me that's enough!

Spielberg? Or Squirrel?

This one's a commercial just waiting to happen.

Someone left his GoPro camera on the ground near a tree.

A curious squirrel approached and decided he must have the GoPro - or, he mistook it for a shiny nut.

Either way, the squirrel nabbed the camera and scooted up a tree with it.

The footage is pretty amazing, even when the squirrel drops it to the ground.

Could be the rodent version of Stephen Spielberg here...

"America Loves You"

Give Jay Leno a hand.

He recently visited Afghanistan, performing for the troops in a USO show.

He came home wanting to do more. So he and the folks at The Today Show selected an active service member who was also a wounded warrior, and gave him a joy ride to remember.

Check out the video as Jay drove Corporal Ethan Laberge on the back roads around Fort Campbell, Kentucky in a brand-new 2015 Dodge HRT Hellcat - the muscle car of muscle cars.

And at the end of the ride...

You just have to watch it for yourself. And grab a hankie.

Baby, It's Not Frozen Outside

Put Idina Menzel together in a duet with Michael Buble? Good idea.

Have them sing a classic tune like "Baby, It's Cold Outside." Yeah, that works.

When you make the video? Cast a bunch of kids in big person outfits and settings.

And you might just have the cutest darn video ever. Well, of the year, anyway.

The singing's great - the kids are great too.

And don't worry - Idina and Michael make a quick cameo appearance. Don't blink!
