'Weekly Watercooler' - Weirdest Web Stories Of The Week

by: Jason Rice, web producer Updated:


It has been a very interesting week over at NBC with the debacle that is their late night lineup.

They have managed to push Conan O'Brien out the door as he has decided not to do the "The Tonight Show" at 12:05 a.m. ... since it's not really tonight anymore!

Jay Leno is moving back to his old 11:35 p.m. slot and will regain the "The Tonight Show" - (READ) - but frankly nobody is very happy about it.

The whole mess has become the butt of all the jokes this week for late night comedians.

Jimmy Kimmel did his entire show on Wednesday night dressed as Jay Leno complete with grey, puffy wig and prosthetic chin ... not too mention Chevy Chase coming out dressed as Conan.

The internet is buzzing with hundreds of posts, stories and blogs related to this calamity and it seems that a majority of people are siding with Conan O'Brien.

Facebook groups like 'Team Conan' and 'I'm with Coco' have sprung up, boasting thousands of members and Twitter has been flooded with the hashtag #teamconan.

Even NBC's own are siding with Conan as Alison Brie, an actress on NBC's 'Community' tweeted "My heart belongs to Conan!"

Artist and Conan fan, Mike Mitchell, even made this portrait (left) of 'I'm With Coco' for FREE use across the internet.

Mitchell is encouraging fans to post it with their blogs and Twitter accounts.

Radaronline is reporting that NBA superstar, Shaquille O'Neal, like Tiger, is being accused of having his own circle of mistresses over the last couple years -- READ.

Two women have come out in the last couple months to report they had an affair with Shaq and now Radaronline reports that there is a third woman.

25-year-old Swedish model and aspiring actress, Dominica Westling, is the latest of the trio who claims to have had an 18-month, steamy affair where the two exchanged risqué emails and also had cybersex using a Web camera, according to some creepy sources who supposedly know.

Shaq has also been linked in a five-year relationship with model Vanessa Lopez - one that has turned ugly. Lopez recently hired Gloria Allred (sound familiar?) as her attorney with claims that Shaq has been harrasing her, a source told RadarOnline.com.

Shaq was first linked months ago to the fiancé of disgraced NBA player, Gilbert Arenas ... a claim that Arenas has denied. Arenas was suspended last week from the NBA for pulling a gun on a teammate in the locker room.

Shaq's wife Shaunie has filed for legal separation with intent to divorce since the news of the affairs broke and the case is pending.

When asked to confirm the story, Westling said "I understand where you're coming from but I just don't want to talk about anything. I'd rather not comment."

We'll take that as a YES!


If haven't heard about 5-year-old Jonah Rocks and his abilities to rock out on the drums, you will be hearing a lot from him in the future.

This kid has unbelievable musical skills for somebody so young and you can read more about him and watch him perform cover songs on his website -- RIGHT HERE.

According to his website, Jonah starting playing at the age of 3 and is completely self taught and has never had a lesson.

As much fun as it is to watch this little guy play, Jonah is clearly the one having all the fun.

I am not a huge fan of American Idol and frankly I avoid it as much as possible but when a clip like this one comes across my desk then I feel the need to share it with you.

Since Paula's nuttiness is now gone and Simon's callousness soon to go, the show is in desperate need of clips like these.

Check out this hilarious performance by 'Sit-Tee-Two'-year-old General Larry Platt from Atlanta as he brings down the house with his hit song 'Pants On The Ground'.

Platt, a civil rights activist who once rubbed shoulders with Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., has seen his popularity skyrocket this week after the show aired with his video heating up on YouTube and Twitter -- Click Here.

For Platt, the song was just another one of his causes.

He said Thursday that he and his civil rights colleagues sacrificed too much for today's youth to walk around with sagging pants.

Watch the video below - it is sure to leave you laughing for the rest of the day ... and good luck trying to get the catchy tune out of your head!

"Pants on the ground, pants on the ground! Lookin like a fool wit ya pants on the ground... call yourself a cool cat ... HEY!!! ♪ ♫ ♫


We've all had a friendly wager before with a buddy when we felt confident about our team winning the big game ... but never like this next guy!

The man lost a bet when the Baltimore Ravens beat the New England Patriots last weekend in the NFL Playoffs and he had to strap on an electric dog collar and run through the invisible fence.

There's only one problem with this ... the dude who lost the bet was a Ravens fan from Baltimore ... huh?

That's right he bet against his own team.

I guess he deserves what he got then.
