Mom Makes Taylor Swift Parody ‘Knock It Off’ [VIDEO]

Taylor Swift debuted "Shake It Off" all the way back in August, and it's still inspiring some pretty great parodies. The latest comes from MyLifeSuckers (who we LOVE here at Channel 95.7), and changes the lyrics of the song to be about the the stresses of being a mom with rowdy kids, a carpool, gossipy PTA moms, and judgmental in-laws.

Worst Case Of Head Lice Ever Will Make You Itchy [VIDEO]

I got head lice when I was a kid. Let me tell you, it was not fun, nor did the stuff my mom had to use to kill them smell good, nor did it feel good to have my hair yanked out as she combed through my hair with that fine-toothed comb.

I'm thankful, however, that I didn't have thousands of lice like this poor girl. Be prepared to feel really itchy.

Meet Tyler – Wendy’s Pet Of The Week

Wednesdays are my favorite! Why? Because the Humane Society stops by with a new friend that I get to name as Wendy's Pet of The Week. (Yes, I know, I'm posting this on Thursday, I kind of forgot yesterday. I think I was in an adorable puppy coma.)

Trudy Ender, from the Humane Society of West Michigan, brought Tyler in to see me!

That’s Not My Name – Wendy Rants About Strangers Using Pet Names [VIDEO]

This isn't about cat-calling. Or maybe it is. It's not about things that men will yell as I'm walking down the street. It's not about being followed down the sidewalk by guys trying to get me to talk to them.

It's about the seemingly innocent things that strange men will say to women in public places that really just come off as creepy and make many women uncomfortable.

So to you, random strange guy at the store last night who said "Hi, pretty!" when I walked in, I want you to know something - that's not my name.

A viral video that's racked almost 4 million hits on YouTube shows off one woman's roommate's morning song-and-dance routine.

Here’s A Video Of Four Adults Dressed As Corgis & Dancing To ‘Shake It Off’ [Video]

I don't know why this happened. Frankly, it's not my place to ask questions. But, I do have one - where does one find an adult-sized corgi costume? I need to know. For reasons.

It really doesn't matter, I suppose. What does matter is that these "four Corgi-obsessed friends with five Welsh Corgis" dressed up like their dogs and danced to Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off". You know, like you do.

Former Detroit Tigers’ Manager Jim Leyland Sings ‘Who’s Your Daddy’ At a Bar [VIDEO]

I wasn't really sure what Jim Leyland had been up to since he isn't the manager of the Tigers anymore, but it turns out that he mostly just hangs out in Royal Oak.

This works out well for those of us who remain fans, because it means that other fans can get videos of awesome things happening - like Leyland belting out Toby Keith's 2002 hit "Who's Your Daddy?" at a bar in Royal Oak.
