A weekly overview of all the goodness we brought you from Monday, November 17 – Sunday, November 23.
We had more Monday Funnies for you, this time around we have a man trying to get a owl out of his home. This video is beyond hysterical and were still amazed that he was able to capture this all on video. Then a young woman was able to escape paying a hefty parking ticket by pretending to be a ghost car. We don’t know how she did it, but it was devious and genius. And closing the Monday Funnies post we gave mention to how we felt victimized by a biopic that was beyond horrible.
